Newt talked to the Fox and Friends this morning and said he is staying in no matter what. He expects Romney to lose tonight. I also have Beck playing in the background as I type this. Beck said Gingrich is not getting out. He looked disgusted and concerned. (Said more derogatory things about Newt.) Then he played an interview with Santorum this morning in which he asked if it isn't bad for them to go at it this long. Santorum told Beck it is a good thing that they stay in till the convention because if someone gets out now, Obama has 8 mos to beat up on the nominee. Seems Santorum agrees with Newt. Fox and Beck are wanting Santorum and Gingrich out so Romney can win. Every hour Fox has been saying how Santorum wants Newt out and is pushing hard for that. They did the same thing with Newt saying Newt wanted Santorum out.

If the election results come out the way the polls are posted at the Drudge homepage, it looks like Mitt is going to wrap it up........which also means America is finished.

I just cannot believe how many people don’t know Romney’s record and find it troubling.

How stoopid are these loons?

Looking good ain’t a resume of accomplishment. it’s just Hollywood and B list actor in stated stories that only sometimes make sense.

Maybe my Demand friends had it right the other night “The TEA Party has ruins the republican party”.

I just may have to eat the words I had for them if this Bozo prevails.

Difference is, Newt never directly said Santorum should drop out. Fox twisted Newts statements, they and Santorum did the interpretation.

Skillfully provided by that shill for Romney to suppress the anti-Romney vote.

I personally don't know anyone who has expressed any support for or voted for Romney. How do we known this isn't Romney employing the proved Texas Obama 2008 strategy?

Two of my best friends are in full support of Romney. Both are true conservatives, both families are Notre Dame. They want Obama out and feel Romney has the best chance of beating Obama. They were for Newt after SC, but his momentum loss scared them. Ohio, early voters also. I will be honest, if it had been just Santorum and Romney, I also would have voted Romney for the same reason.

Every single Mormon I know is voting for him. that’s more 200 people right there.

I also have some others here in California (not LDS ) who plan on voting for him, even after I help them understand the candidates, the issues and their plans.

Hell, it took me a month and a half before my Mom understood it. All it took was the issues of abortion, 2A and Romney Care before she finally understood there is mo reason for a Mitt candidacy.

Just so irritating. the guy doesn’t ever say anything concrete and people are just projecting their hope into him.

Crap product and they are still buying it.

I tell them fine, you got issues with Newt then at least do yourself and America a favor and vote for Rick.

Can’t stand this.

Absolutely, they’re cloning the “empty suit” Obama campaign strategy. Get up there, say vague platitudes, and let the audience project their “hope” onto you. The only time Newt and Rick have done really well is when they savagely attack Romney by filling that “projection screen” with their own dark images. Newt did it with the Bain Capital film in South Carolina and Rick did it by nailing him on Romneycare in the Florida debate. If this campaign is a beauty contest with no mudslinging, Romney would win it every time because, in the words of some young women from a CPAC interview, “He LOOKS like a President (swoon)!” Newt and Rick really need surrogates out there slamming and smearing Romney every day. When they lay off the attacks, his natural “storybook” qualities make him rise back up to the top. Only strategy I can see working now...Newt drops out and goes full bore attack dog on Romney, while Santorum plays good cop at the top of the ticket.

What makes it so hard for you to believe that Romney couldn’t beat Obama?

It’s Santorum who I feel is unelectable at this point. His voice is grating and his delivery is all too often off. He picks the wrong fights over and over again.

Romney does best at focusing on economic issues, and that is what this race will come down to. Romney is able to come across as always presidential and as someone who can solve problems. I backed him in 2008 because I thought he was clearly the most conservative of the candidates and could voice himself clearly and stand toe-to-toe with a Democrat. I might have supported Thompsom, but he never convinced me he had the drive.

This year I’m backing Newt for the same reasons I backed Romney, other than I see him having the advantages of being far more aggressive and far more conservative.

Now, having listened to Fred’s radio show over time and having seen Huckabee over time, I’m still not sure I’d think the same way as I did in 2008. But I still see Romney as electable, if not as ideal as Newt.

What strikes you about Romney that he can’t beat Obama? He’s “too white?”

If I were the nominee, I’d just do a commercial with the debt clock behind me and perhaps point out when a plumber’s entire wages went by, a doctor’s, a professional basketball player’s.... Just let it run. I’d refer to it constantly as “the Obama debt.” It’s the one issue that’s not going away, and it’s only getting bigger. It also pretty much undermines Obama’s entire agenda.

I definitely believe it is the media saying only Romney can beat Obama. Sickening. Of course, Romney’s money figures in too. He was bashing our guys here in Fla. long before our primary. Many conservative talk show hosts were uninformed and saying things which did not help too. Fox has been shameless. Neal Boortz is saying that although he wants Newt he would vote Romney after looking at the polls and how he could beat Obama. Do they not understand those polls will shoot straight down after Obama dumps on Romney?

I will say Romney would have a very difficult time explaining away Romneycare, which is a mirror reflection of Obamacare. I just think the central fights are going to be over the economy and the debt.

I hope he doesn’t give up. Santorum has far fewer committed delegates than Romney or Gingrich, but I think he should stay in, too. Romney is relying on the GOP-E, combined with the Mormon church and the several million dollars of his personal money he has already spent, to give him the nomination.

I would crawl over broken glass to vote against Bishop Willard. As it is, today I just had to drive a few blocks to do it. It was VERY satisfying.

People have been told for months that Romney is the nominee. He will have a difficult time beating Obama. Media is very happy. Even if Mitt wins, they get a liberal.

Everytime I see Romney on TV I want to barf. He stumbles, he’s inarticulate, he’s hokey, fake, awkward ... I have no idea usually what the hell he’s even talking about. He’s usually just doing something banal, like reciting American the Beautiful ...like a freaking parrot.

Damn, America — you had your chance. You got fat, lazy, stupid ... and now it’s just going to be over for you.

If you let him win tonight.

This New republican party has no place for conservatives.
We need a new party for limited government and the protection of our liberties. You are right about your comments. Newt is the stronger leader to get things done. Rick is the stronger social person. Rommney is the comfortable guy-tho they overlook Romneycare. Very confusing in how they forgive him for that which is a loss of our freedom.

It’s not just Romneycare. Romney is an across the board statist.

His team is stacked with global warming/cap n trade whackos
He’s chosen far left statists for judicial positions
He likes minimum wage (even wants it indexed for inflation)
He has not proposed any serious discretional cuts
He has no plan to deal with entitlements (beyond tinkering)

Mitt Romney is an unmitigated disaster.

He’ll win over some, but ultimately that is why he’ll lose. No ability to distinguish himself from Obama on issues, and I suspect many conservatives will not support him.

As said before Romney will get his butt handed to him in November.
1. Throw out arguing about Obama care.
2. His 59 economic points put me to sleep faster than pills.
3. I don’t want to hear about the Olympics again.
4. Every moderate republican canadate gets his butt whipped, McCain, Bush 1, Dole.
5. When Obama gets tired of that he will pull out Bain Capital and beat his butt with class envy crap.

Newt needs to head to the showers, his one outstanding attribute is debates, something Obama and the media will handle. Obama will not debate him more than twice and Newt will not be allowed to avoid answering questions bitching out the media. Its not Presidential.

I just said that if Newt loses both States tonight, he needs to go. If he stays in we’ll end up with Romney. I have “gotten real”. I boost both Rick and Newt because they are both the anti-Romney. But, sometimes you have to get out of your denial Christie. Our man Newt is finished. Sad, but true. No, I don’t like Santorum, but I like RINO-Rom less. And, if Newt doesn’t get out, we’ll end up with Romney.
