” Drudge Calls Puerto Rico for Mitt Romney “

Why?? Is Mitt’s dialing finger broke, or something??

(Sorry - ambiguously written headlines bring out the worst in me...)

Who gives a crap about Puerto Rico as a legitimate player in the process, since they can’t vote in the Presidential Election (at least, not LEGALLY). Pandering to them before statehood is silly (except if you are just trying to influence LEGAL Puerto Rican immigrants that are now U.S. Citizens....but then, they all vote Democrat, anyways.

Fox just called it for Mitwit too. The egomaniac must be on cloud 9 knowing some people are buying his drivel. He is trying to buy the presidency.

CNN is projecting that Romney won Puerto Rico (he has 83% of the vote so far, according to them) and will take all 20 delegates.

" Santorum should be commended for staying true to his conservative principles even when it was not politically convenient. Santorum could have pandered to the pro-statehood governor of Puerto Rico in order to get the 20 delegates at stake, but instead the former senator spoke the truth and told Puerto Rican voters a reality they needed to hear. Immediately after, Romney’s campaign started attacking Santorum and maliciously twisting his comments, telling voters that the former senator was advocating “English-only” and was against Spanish."

Free Republic contingent slams Santorum for staying true to conservative values supporting Romney by proxy and damn proud of it.

There is no doubt I don’t understand everything, but when I read that PR can vote in the primaries (with a relatively large number of delegates) but not the general it made me give myself a huge head slap.

Why in the heck would that be?

The more I look at the primary process, the more crazy it seems.

Where has Romney won with 83% of the vote? PR sounds like a banana republic run by machine politics. I think the Republican establishment has stacked all of these non-states so they play a significant role in contributing delegates. What was it like Guam and the Marianas kick in something equivlent to an actual low population state. They've got this whole thing rigged, we just never noticed before. Time for a new party. This one needs to implode.

Why do they get to vote in Primaries in Puerto Rico, if they can’t vote in the General Election?

They do vote in the general election. It is added to popular votes. They do not have any electoral votes. It helps Romney in his delegate column.

What you said, Nana. Not to mention the real “inevitable” spouting Romneybots are sure coming out tonight. They cleverly won’t say a thing in support of Newt Gingrich, but sure have praise for the inevitability for a Romney coronation, or take unbridled glee in a Santorum loss in Puerto Rico, call it what you will, but I just don’t think these people are regular, active Freepers in most cases, reviewing posting histories, and as RINO sleepers must have just activated their FR accounts from the basement of the RNC just in time. We saw this with McCain exactly in this same fashion four years ago. Republican-Firsters.

Do you have a link to their popular vote totals for 2008? I’d appreciate it if you do, thanks.

Do you think it was something to do with Santorum saying that Puerto Rico should learn English?

Somebody else just posted that PR is always overwhelmingly for the establishment candidate, so PR is a joke. I thought it was like a regular state. Nothing to see here, just more establishment Republicans pulling the lever for Romney trying to convince somebody that matters that people like him.

Four years ago McCain won PR with 95% of the vote.

The place loves Democrats and RINOs.

Whose popular vote does it go to? Texas,? Florida? Puerto Rico voting in the general election just to add to the popular vote makes no since at all.

Romney will arrive with strong majorities in delegations from MA, VT, CA, CT, NJ, NY, ...in other words, states where the GOP has virtually no chance of carrying.

Romney posted on Youtube & stated the PR governor told them he won. Maybe Drudge gets the first call.
