Rush has no children or grandchildren......think about it.

I absolutely agree!

I posted about this extensively last week. Tonight, while fools dance and make merry, I grieve for my five grandchildren and the unbelievable tax burden we are putting on them.

Talk about an earthquake, if conservatives could work together and Paul take VA by a landslide I might still be laughing six months from now.

I'm in! Let's make it so!

If you don’t vote for the republican nominee, you are voting for Obama. And if you are voting for Obama, you are not a conservative. Any of the 4 republicans are more conservative than Obama. Don’t let your emotions cloud your senses.

19% down? That is a lot less lead than a lot of the the so called accurate polls were showing today and back into this weekend.

Which polls?

At the time I posted there was still over 50% of votes not counted. The first time I looked Newt was under 30%

Yep - I am not necessarily blaming Santorum per se but it is simple math. Santorum and Newt are splitting the conservative vote and Romney benefits. The RNC did not push Santorum and Newt into the race to split the vote and make it easy for Romney. Conservative candidates caused this. Can’t blame Fox News or Rush. Let’s hope Gingrich can pull off a win in spite of Florida. I haven’t given up.

For not having a lot of money, Santorum is doing fairly well. Right now he is trailing Newt by the asame amount that Newt is trailing Romney. Santorum should stay in the race if he only trails Newt by single digits. He has a shot in the upcoming primaries.

It’s the gender gap that’s destroying Newt. I honestly believe it was the Nightline interview, but it took a surprisingly long time to propagate (through women who saw it mentioning it to other women).

Vote for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil. I will NEVER vote for evil.

Slight correction Sand88...

In the words the Late Mark Scott ( Michigan talk show host) It is the evil of 2 lessers... I am tired of voting for lessers...

Sometimes things are so rotten to the core, you have to abandon or tear them down and start over. I’m at that point with the GOP-e. Not salvageable if Romney prevails.

My sentiments exactly. Shall I light the match and fire up the bulldozer? The GOP is dead to me!

There is a difference between a party that neglects your issues and a party that is openly and actively hostile towards your issues.

I’m not saying give up. Fight like cats and dogs and rabid bearcats to get the nomination for Newt and then to make him president.

But if the party elite manage to force Romney on us, I can promise you he will move to the left in the general and declare war on conservatives. He can’t afford to leave us standing if he gets in the Whitehouse, he will need allies in the House and Senate. If it is Romney, conservatism is in danger.

If Newt works to win this thing, no one can stop him. He didn’t need Santorum to kick Romney’s butt in SC.

That's not going to work on me anymore. If Romney is the nominee, I write-in. My vote is MY vote, and it won't go to someone who is opposite of what I hold dear.

Well I went out to eat today as I usually do on Jan 31 which was my Mom’s birthday...

She was born 100 years ago today...

I usually think about her and what she and Dad taught me...

My Christian and Conservative values came from them..

and to love and respect and appreciate America...

Eventhough neither of them either lived here...

I tried not to worry about what was happening in Florida...

cause it aint over by many states..

I got back to the house a few minutes ago...

Romney 48% to Newt 31% 28% reporting..

Thats shameful...

Just how many stupid people live in Florida ???

I should have stayed at OCharleys and had a slow dessert with another cup of coffee...

Too bad for you this is an ANTI-ROMNEY website. We will continue to bash Romney just as much as we bash ZERO.

That is a fact. Romney supporters will continue to be banned. Don’t look for any support for Romney EVER on Free Republic. As it should be.

If Romney is the nominee, he will lose in the general. I will vote my conscience. Your reasoning could be applied to those who vote for Romney in the primary, as a vote for Willard ultimately is a vote to return Obama to the White House.

CNN early numbers show Romney with 47%

Gingrich 31%

Santorum 13%

[Note that the combo of Gingrich + Santorum would still fall short by 3% over what Romney gets]

I understand your point. David Limbaugh (if we're to believe that he's not being disingenuous) is following what he believes to be the "formula': vote for the most conservative candidate in the primary, then unite around the eventual nominee at the general election.

There's only one small problem with the 2012 bottling of this formula. If Romney is the nominee, then Limbaugh is urging conservatives to rally around a man who is the very antithesis of conservatism. It could very well mean the end of conservative participation in the GOP. I can't speak for others, but if Romney is the nominee, I will not only actively campaign AGAINST him, but burn my Republican Party registration card. Happily.

In short, the "formula" needs to be tossed. Its expiration date has passed. It's poison.
