My my, Romney acts as if he’s just been elected president. All those who have voted for him have just insured that the RINO establishment will continue on schedule and that conservatives and their values will be ignored.
Romney hasn’t won yet! I pray to God he doesn’t. I did not vote for obama, and I will certainly not vote for his liberal twin romney.
As of now, Newt is being defeated in PA by a candidate that has already dropped out (Santorum) and Ron Paul. Seriously. In Rhode Island it appears Gingrich not only got crushed by Romney, he only got 6% of the vote and finished far behind Ron Paul. In Delaware, where Gingrich spent weeks, he lost by 30% to Romney. Newt is doing horribly badly everywhere. And there are still people here who think Gingrich has even the slightest chance of being the nominee or stopping Willard. Are some people really this politically naive, or is the pain of accepting the obvious just too much yet to accept?
It's incredibly sad to watch at this point.
The problem is I know Gingrich is a clever politician and has known he isn't going to win or have any impact at the convention for weeks or even months now. It's like he is enjoying this last moment in the spotlight and just can't let it go. That would be fine, but he is giving a lot of people false hope and essentially taking their money to pay off his campaign debt without being truthful with them.
I think a lot of folks are overestimating Obama's popularity.
The American people are not buying what Obama is selling.
We don't like his policies, we don't like his appointments, we don't respect his management style, and we hate his attitude.
For the next six months we should all simply keep reminding everyone that everything about the guy sucks.
Then he will lose.
Bunch of Romneybots messed everything up for people in places like Texas. I think all primaries should be the same day and Republicans only primaries. I had to gag to vote for McPain, but thanks to Sarah, it was a bit easier.
In Delaware 98% of the vote is in and Willard is beating Newt by 30 points, I'm pretty sure it isn't a little early to call it.
Some egos cant admit defeat.
I am not sure why they are hanging onto him.
His campaign was over after FL. The great debater lost both debates there. His southern strategy failed. He has seldom been out of the mid teens in poll numbers and in actual votes. His campaign is $4 million in debt.
He had to win about 95% of all remaining delegates just to get close to the nomination.
He has become the huckabee2012 hanger on.
And that he is a dog eater ;)
Romney is not technically the nominee yet but he is certainly the only guy left in the race.
Newt knows he is done after tonight and he will make it official within a week.
This thing is over, Rover.
I remember how I used to ridicule folks that wanted Palin to run this year, because I didn’t think she was quite ready for prime time. Damn.... was I ever wrong. I totally wish she would have ran and gotten the nomination. She would have blown away the competition, and wouldn’t have been afraid to rip 0bama to shreds!
Mittens isn’t going to win. I’d rather go down with a real conservative at the helm, than a Massachusetts liberal. I feel like I owe a good many FReepers an apology.....
I’ll most likely end up voting AGAINST 0bama, but it sure as hell isn’t gonna be easy to hit the button for Mittens!
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy."
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
Republican only, yes. Same day, no.
Same day would guarantee an unknown, untested, unvetted candidate chosen only by name recognition and bankroll.
Typical northeast result.
Your post saying it was a little early to call it was at 9:20. By that time well over 90% of the vote was in and the state was long since called for Willard. With 98% in, Romney got 57%, Gingrich 27%, Paul 10%, Santorum 6%. It was an easy call for the networks to make since it wasn't even close.
While I agree with your assessment, I never thought Clinton would have won a 2nd term, but he did.
With voter fraud, the MSM turd polishing, etc., I wouldn’t bet the farm on it at this point.
