You know, of course, that the big liberal states like NY and NJ will be going for McCain on Super Tuesday. Egads!

I can’t vote for McCain, but for all the others who feel the same, DON’T STAY HOME in November. Go to the polls and at least vote for everything else.

"It shows one thing. I'm the conservative leader who can unite the party," the Arizona senator said in a brief interview with The Associated Press.

I think I just threw up in my mouth.

The polls in the Panhandle were closed for over an hour before Fox News called it for McCain.

McCain has indeed won Florida.

If its true, there is only one way to feel. We, as Americans are facing the possibility of a Presidential election that will pit the two most dangerous people in American politics against each other.

Well, I guess if you don’t believe that we should turn over our money to the illegals and our security to the terrorists then you shouldn’t bother running for President.

You folks that think a McCain nomination means a Democrat win should leave your your bubbles for a moment and check the polls.

We need this thing to go to a brokered convention and come out of there with Fred Thompson as the nominee.

I must confess, I find it hilarous that the GOP talk shows hosts and pundits (ie. Rush and Hewitt and Levin and Hannity) are taking it on the chin.

They deserve McCain after they gave us Bush and marginalized Fred and Duncan.

I’ve pretty much decided on a write in vote. The GOP doesn’t want conservatives so I don’t need them.

This is disgusting. The media has what it has always wanted—the two favorites McCain and Huckabee. Huckabee has been kissing up to McCain for weeks to be his vice president. Giuliani endorses McCain. All of the most liberal, lying, fake Republicans are now in the driver’s seat. Conservatives did not vote for McCain in Florida. Romney could have won if Huckabee hadn’t been in the race stealing votes among the moronic evangelicals. And Huckabee is continuing on as the spoiler ruining Romney’s chances in the upcoming primaries.

Conservatives who hate Huckabee and McCain better coalesce behind Romney or the Republican party is doomed.

The question is how did they do it in FLA...

How many Dem's crossed over and broke the law and who looked the other way.

If it is McCain, I say home or vote for some other Conservative Party.

The RNC is absolute Toast.

Their only hope is to stave off a 60 vote majority in the Senate, If not she will radically change this country in 2 years or try too, if we survive....

Why vote for a RINO when you an vote for a real Socialist is what the squishy middle will do.

That is before the Press "Fountainheads" McCain in the last hrs. like they did with GWB and the DWI.

There's no point in D's voting, their delegates don't count. Can't cross party lines in that state.

Oh mann....Rush is going to spend literal hours on why he really did not lose to McCain, or how McCain won because of “X”..

Viva la Amnesty folks, see stabbing us in the back works, because we fall for it everytime.

Terrible news, can this be true? Good God! Well, Rush, Hannity, and the Great One Mark Levin, tried to tell us,
and some of us, just didn’t listen. McPain’s record, has
been layed out, in print, on line, and on the air, and I’m
just sickened by this.

This is true. McCain will NEVER get my vote. If that means hillary becomes president, so be it. When the country country goes down the tubes it would be better to have a RAT in charge.

“You can vote for McCain and you will. “

I can’t and I won’t. In fact I will vote for whomever the Dems nominate rather than McCain. Anybody, literally anybody, but McCain.

Unfortunately the RNC Establishment and FL GOP was in the tank for McCain. I don’t get it. This guy has done nothing but stab this party in the back for 8 years, causing a level of damage to the President and congress.

If McCain wins the nomination, conservatives must decide if we want help McCain destroy the Republican party, or if we want Hillary to galvanize the Republican party.

I agree:

I guess we just give up because Florida chooses Mcnasty? Many, many states to go, Florida was just one of many.

MSM just messing with conservative minds … their only hope is that Mcnasty is the Republican nominee because Hitlary could beat him.
