Romney ‘blinks’ at Tommy's Ham House, arrives 45 min early.
BTW looks like a great place to bring your muzzie buds.

[Neil is so pro Romney it is evident]

So true, Even Kraut Hammer and Chrissy Wall ass were over thinking the debates last night, saying that if the “audience” had not been there, then Romney (Who they said was the clearest, most concise voice in the debate) would have easily won. But since those stupid, yelling cheering, standing ovation, ignorant fools were there, it messed Romney's worthy attention all up! (And wrongfully gave the debate to Newt.)

I LOL’ed my butt off! And there certainly are going to be some very long faces on FOX Snooze tonight! “The Five” and their pathetic panel of losers are going to be fun to watch, as they spin this thing. FOX is losing their audience in droves since they brought that sickening show on.

I wonder if they have counted absentee ballots yet. It would interesting to see those numbers since all they are doing now is sitting around. The media could put that on air and perhaps Newt would be ahead with the ballots and could have announcements on this all through the day to help those undecided voters.

“”I’m watching Neil Cavuto (sp) on Fox and it is killing him to have to say Newt is ahead in the polls. He says Newt has surged but will that hold up? Suggesting this is just a fluke.”

Cavuto would crap in his pants if he took a look at intrade this morning.

Yep......and I believe the voters in South Carolina will turn out in large numbers today and....the inclement weather will hinder them very little. Why? Because, the good folks of SC realize tha it is America that is at stake in the election, not some politician. Obama must be not only be defeated, he and the Democrat Party must be destroyed politically from top to bottom!!! So.....South Carolina voters, OUT TO THE POLLS YOU MUSY GO TODAY,&....SAVE OUR GREAT NATION, THE USA, FROM OBAMA STATISM & DICTATORSHIP!!!

Yes, I heard it and laughed as well. Kraut Hammer has a problem with the nasty voters who were there. Get rid of the voters and give the election to Romney who is their candidate.

Thanks for the ping. Been on Twitter since I got up this morning. LOTS of excitement, especially with the GREAT news about Newt being up by 9 in latest poll.

As soon as SC is over, there needs to be a big push to get Mitt to release his tax returns and an even bigger push to force him to show up for the debates. He knows every time there is a debate he goes down, Newt goes up. Lots of chatter by talking heads about there being too many debates. We all know they are running interference for “the chosen one”. Can't let it happen.

Have a great day Newt fans.

To the Rick Santorum supporters here; if your candidate does poorly (as all of the polls suggest that he will, there will be further calls for him to end his campaign. This is not mean’t to be a personal attack, please do not respond as if it were one.

Probably 95% of us leaning towards Newt don’t necessarily LIKE him or have any emotional attachment whatsoever.; We believe he is what this nation needs to defeat Obama AND get us back on track.

I think that his past personal foibles are just that, past and personal. He and his wife claim to be sinners forgiven by a loving God. Who are we to call them liars?

Some folks, who were raised in Christ from birth don’t always understand what that forgiveness means to those of us that were not raised in a Christ centered home. Those of us that came to the Lord later in life having been humbled by Him allowing us to make our mistakes and loving us anyway.

Maybe us newer Christians understand Newt a little better than others because WE have been there, done that and got the battle scars.

This primary and the end results are nothing personal, please act with class. If by some miracle, Rick Santorum were to shock the world, gain 20 to 30 pts over what all of the polls say he will do and win South Carolina?

Well then he’s going to get a lot of support from those of us leaning Gingrich right now.

What? You want Santorum to spoil Newt? Which is all that Santorum could ever accomplish?

Santoprum is an idiot, and his Senate record was terrible. Now he is merely slowing our only hope to fix this mess, down. And you hope he does.

Just returned from voting. Wife and I were, 42 and 41, respectively, to vote at around 10AM. Voted for Santorum.

Misersble weasther as you pointed out. I’m hoping it will keep most of the demrat and unregistered spoiler voters at home.

My sense is that people in this Bible Belt state understand the importance of this vote. For what it’s worth the only signs I’ve seen around Greenville and vicinity are for Santorum and Newty. Santorum signs are by far in the majority. To be fair, two or three of Newty’s signs are outsized which I take as an example of his ego. Newty is simply trying to outshout Santorum. Kind of like using caps in posts.

No I want those who refuse to vote for Newt to vote for Santorum rather than waste their vote on the liberal Romney

Santorum wont win

but he can help stop Romney from getting too close to Newt..

I want a LARGE margin between Newt and Romney

so that Romney cant try to “Santorum” Newt on the results...

This outlook assumes Pelosi does not have Newty by the n***, as she so publicly claimed. I’m not willing to take that chance.

It also assumes that Bible Belt Christians will break for a serial adulterer, lier and deceiver. Why I must settle for that as president is beyond me. Also fascinating is that the very people who condemned the Clintoon/Lewinsky misbehavior are perfectly comfortable giving the philandering Newt a pass.

I find that pathetic, hippocritical and disenguineness.

Yes, he does. I used to like him but when he kept trashing Newt, I knew he was not the conservative I thought he was. He has been saying Romney is the one so that tells me his true beliefs.

All of us are sinners, in one form or another.

The reason why better people don’t run is that they have sins as well, but they don’t want them aired publicly. It could damage your fantasy about them.

One thing I have learned about Free Republic is that it is extremely fickle. Either that, or different groups of people check in at different times. Several months ago, you had all kinds of brutal slams against Gingrich here on Free Republic.

Heck, just about two or three years ago, when Gingrich supported this Dede Scozazzafavabean and sided with the RINO elite in upstate New York, about every other comment on FR (and I remember it vividly) were things like "Shut up Newt", or "Go Away Newt". It was endemic, I remember it. He had support by about 10% of people on FR for doing that.

Now, a few years later in South Carolina, this morning on FR it seems like the second coming of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ it is so overwhelming for Gingrich. I wonder why FR shifts doctrinally in the winds like that. Is it just that different people are checking in? Or is it that people equivocate that much? I know Sen. Santorum has had strong, solid support on FR as well as name calling and bashing. It is odd. At any rate, we should adjust the turret and turn the fire on Romney and Paul and Obama at the of the day. This is kind of like a "separated brethren situation" within Christendom, it seems. Weird.

That’s some good news. Yesterday I predicted several times here on FR that Newt would get 40% of the vote today.

Now if Santorum were to drop out would southern evangelicals vote for the pro-abortion mormon or the adulterer that claims forgiveness in Christ?

Decisions, decisions.

The people still calling Newt an adulterer have apparantly never read the Bible.

It amazes me that people think the American people would choose someone like Calista Gingrich as First Lady. Imho, this will turn off huge numbers of people - a woman who had an adulterous affair with a married man for over six years.
