Mitt simply got his head handed to him at the debates and thought the GOP Establishment would win it for him.

Mine too Bubbette, but no more. I am looking at all, especially the Fox crew much closer than I did before. Makes me wonder how much we didn’t understand about the media when I was younger. Were they always bad and we just didn’t realise it, or rather, have they just crossed the line in the last 10-15 years.

I listened to MSM and oh they were in meltdown, entertaining to see them struggle and squirm and shutter and shake...they were p*ssed off no doubt....saying newt can’t win..60% of public opposes Newt....they are so blindsighted they couldn’t see the obvious if it was shoved down their throats!

Sure they can.

If the DNC Media really thought Newt couldn't win, how would they react to his win tonight? Happy or upset?

My concern is Florida already has in 30% of the absentee votes...not to mention Newt isn’t on the ballot in Virginia or Tenn or D.C.

His early staff should be taken out and shot. He could have taken Virginia with momentum.

Interrupted Sarah (who almost looked giddy) to introduce ruPaul. I thought he and his entourage would be over at the local OWS camp trying to score some “medicinal herbs” for their woes...

Yeah, I noticed that, but I think there are reasons why FOX called it, even though the percentages seemed to seesaw a few percentage points one way or the other. At the point a half-hour ago when it was going from Romney to Gingrich and back again, we were talking about a few hundred votes as they get tallied creating the swing back and forth.
As of RIGHT NOW, though, Gingrich looks like the CLEAR winner.
G: 41% Romney 26%

In the next primary state Florida, it has only half the delegates as the state once had because Florida moved up their primary to January 31st, and they were penalized for it.


I never really grasped why they insisted on doing so, but the GOP-E are screwed now. Newt’s MO will carry him riding high into FL.

Pinging the three sharpest analysts I know on FR: why again do y’all think FL moved their primary up, at the expense of half their delegates?

Newt not on ballot in TN? Is that definite? What happened? I was only aware of VA for sure.

DC shouldn’t hurt him. What do they have ? 1 delegate?

Listening to CNN.

Borger spoke with the Romney campaign about “lessons learned.” Romney camp said they will go on the offense in Florida.

CNN: Source(s) say Romney has locked up the Jeb Bush endorsement. You will see the establishment rally around Romney.

Gergen: It will all come down to the Debates. Does Mittens Romney have it in “his DNA” to take on Gingrich in these debates? Speaking earlier, Gingrich ‘brings a switchblade’ to the debates ...I don’t know if Romney has it in him.

Santorum doesn’t see it as a fluke rather he keeps bringing it up as means of having hopes this will occur in other states. He won’t though. Yes, had they not come after Newt Newt would have taken Iowa...I really blame Santorum for that because it only made Romney look good.

I’ve missed good news sources and now get pretty much all from here on FR. The rest seem to be in line with the MSM anymore and certainly wanting Romney on board.

Rebellion is brewing!!

We should rebuild the grassroots conservative movement. From the Reagan Revolution of 1980 through the Contract with America in 1994, it was this movement from outside Washington that carried us to the first center-right majority governing coalition in more than 60 years.

The problem has not been with conservatism or with our voters.

The problem has been with Republican leaders who forgot who elected them and what values their supporters expected to see implemented in Washington.

This is good news! Gingrich is up by 15% on the results I’m monitoring (20.79% in). Add Santorum and Perry? (absentee and early votes?) to the conservative total and it’s:
Conservative 59%
RINO 26%
Kook 13%

Romney certainly wins the absentees in FL, but even so, if it’s a 40% Romney, 25% Newt, 35% other, that makes Romney’s initial lead not as formidable as it seems on first blush. Newt now has momentum from SC, and he will additionally get millions to join the FL air war.

On another note, when RuPaul sticks to monetary & domestic policy, you almost forget that he’s crazy.

Just this has had me a bit uneasy for the past hour....it's highly possible that the Regime and their Media Minions are salivating.

Even if Newt's baggage is all "explain-awayable", they've got plenty of ammunition for the lightly enformed unwashed masses.

It's my preliminary thought that they indeed prefer running against Gingrich than the Mittster - except for that 'debate thing', where they know 0bama would get his ass wiped with his own tongue.

Did FL move the primary up after having been told, "Hey, if you do this, we're cutting half of your delegates" and the FL folks said, "We don't care. It's price we're willing to pay to be right behind South Carolina, and New Hampshire, and Iowa."

Jeb is endorsing Romney.

FWIW, I am hearing that Newt may get one or two big bombshell endorsements for Florida: Rudy Giuliani (perhaps, and that endorsement MATTERS in Florida), and one other big name who is already one degree of separation away from the campaign in Florida - you can probably guess, but I’m not sayin’! ;-)

Be ready, however. Team Romney (a.k.a. Team GOP Establishment) is begging and bribing anyone and everyone who ever worked with Newt to join Jim Talent and Molly Moderate in a massive series of personal attacks. Feelers are out in DROVES tonight. They want large numbers, and have unlimited funds and influence to get those numbers. Expect more Jim Talents VERY soon.

Is Romney reading off a teleprompter?

I can't tell, but he sure is as canned and dry as if he were, isn't he?

Brit Hume commented that Romney just doesn't connect with voters in a one-on-one personal setting. I hollered, "Duh!" at the TV because Mitt is not part of fly-over country. He doesn't understand our perspective and never will.
