Skip to comments.Freepers, Newt Supporters: 46 States to go (Mitt's Gotta Face the South Again Soon)
Posted on 01/31/2012 8:05:07 PM PST by TitansAFC
Four down, forty-six to go!
First, I would like to Congratulate Mitt Romney! No, really! Between he and his Super PAC, Team Romney dumped over 25 million dollars into Florida since the beginning of the campaign which, along with the diabolical coordination with formerly credible GOP media personalities in a massive Establishment smear campaign, resulted in Mitt Romney getting less than 200,000 votes more than he got four years ago!
The result was a plurality win in a four-person primary where only two candidates even attempted to win the state. At least as impressive a performance as winning a basketball game against a team that only fielded four players!
But he'd better get busy again! At his current return of about one delegate per $500,000 in combined spending, he's going to need nearly $600,000,000 to buy the necessary support to be the GOP nominee in August!
On a bright note, my Freeper Friends, it gets better from here. You see, Mitt was expected to take places like NH and FL, places where it is hard to fight an Establishment favorite. But his troubles are only beginning: as seen in the polls posted in the last few days, he trails miserably in the South - states with disproportionately large numbers of delegates with many winner-takes-all Primaries. He is also second or third in most polls of key midwestern states, like Missouri, Ohio, and Minnesota. To top that off, he is at BEST in a statistical tie with Newt in national polls, despite his massive money advantage!
Georgia alone has nearly 80 delegates, a lot more than Florida, and Newt will clean house there. Don't even get me started on the sweetest plum, Texas, where Newt is a favorite and our friend Captain Perry is circling the wagons for Gingrich! Texas has 155 delegates, NC 55 delegates, Ohio 66 delegates, Alaska 50 delegates, and they are all Newt country right now!!
As you see above, the longer the campaign, the more it favors Newt Gingrich! Mitt may win some states here early, but he is breaking the bank to do so. And if he's struggling this hard to win states he should win easily, image what it's going to be like for him when he faces more South Carolina type places in the future!
To arms! To arms! Keep up the good fight, keep fighting! We WILL win this thing in the end because the state delegate count favors us GREATLY as the campaign goes on! Mitt can't win in the South, he struggles mightily in the midwest, and he won't win in the corn belt.
The fight has only just begun! Mitt has broken the bank, and has only a small lead to show for it in delegates. We are in good position, and we will prevail in August and then November!!!!!!!
Well, at least the link to Newt’s speech would have cleared it up if I hadn’t caught it.
“The LDS is doing its part to help Mitt. I just wish evangelicals would come out against his faith.”
Bishop Willard Romney’s Luciferian pantheism is not the core issue of this election. The core issue is that he is a cold blooded, publicly funded abortion pushing leftwing statist.
As for evangelicals, you would be better off trying to herd cats than orchestrate evangelicals. Evangelical resistance to groupthink, conformity and obeisance to principalities and powers are among the reasons this top down GOP is going to start losing the South, and one of the reasons Bishop Willard Romney will struggle, but general rejection of overbearing carpetbaggers does not translate into teamwork.
From what I've read, Romney shills get the zot. You say you prefer Romney over Newt. That's not really the same thing that's gotten others zotted. They come here to spread lies and bash Newt. So long as you aren't acting like a Romney campaign spokesperson, you're probably OK. Of course, I don't control the zot button, but I hope you survive. If you're conservative, I'm curious why you'd support Mitt when he governed as a liberal Democrat. Are you one of those "electability" folks who think that's most important? Isn't what a politician actually does when they hold office (Newt = anti-Hillarycare, Contract with America, conservative congress, etc versus Romney = Romneycare, gay marriage, pro-abortion, etc.) important?
“He probably already got his Romney/Santorum 2012 signs made..............”
I wonder how Santorum’s pro-life supporters will come to grips with that, should it occur.
He said he would ATTEMPT to repeal obamacare. There’s a big difference with the careful selection of those words. I’m sure it would be a half-a** attempt and then if it didn’t go through Congress - voila! He has his escape hatch all ready. He believes in mandated health care for all of us. Wise up - if you can. So, some words about Bain Capital are more harmful to you than what Mitt did in MA? Newt’s words won’t bring this country down; however, Mitt’s belief in his healthcare and his minions helping obama write the healthcare law - WILL.
You need to buy a clue.
“Actually I was a lobbyist once. ... please keep your red hairings to yourself.”

Imbecile. They insult us with trolls like this!
“What good thing can come from Massachusetts?...”
Samuel Adams beer. Bishop Willard Romney cannot drink it though.
New England clam chowder. The clams have more personality than Bishop Willard Romney.
Oh, there are a couple dozen conservatives caught behind enemy lines. That about covers it.
Mitt Romney is either one of two things, which, BTW, makes him one in the same: AN OPPORTUNIST!!!!
Let me explain.
1. He is either a conservative that morphed into a liberal so as to get elected in MA. (Does one ever stop to think that there is NO WAY in hell a conservative EVER gets elected in MA.)
2. He is a liberal that morphed in to a conservative to get elected as the Repub. nominee.
See, I say he is BOTH which means he has no core and is an OPPORTUNIST!!! Romney is running to serve only one thing; his ego!
Mitt Romney: Socialized medicine at the Federal level - BAD!
Socialized medicine at the State level - GOOD!
What a buffoon! I am going to need a lot more than a spoon full of sugar to make that medicine go down!
“Mitt Romney: Socialized medicine at the Federal level - BAD!
Socialized medicine at the State level - GOOD!
What a buffoon! I am going to need a lot more than a spoon full of sugar to make that medicine go down!”
Pssst! (whispers) It ain’t medicine, and it ain’t gonna make you better.
I sure like that! Good way to think of it.
As for Newt "dissing capitalism," my jaw drops with dismay and disgust at those here who so gleefully deceive themselves. Newt challenges what sure smells and looks like bad business ethics in a shady individual and business model, and like baying hounds itching for a fight, so-called "conservatives" jump on him on the false pretext that he was "attacking capitalism."
Come on, those of you who so joyously leap on Newt for this blatantly misconstrued "flaw" -- wake up. Grow a conscience.
Unlike Thomas Sowell, you apparently don't know the difference between lobbying and consulting.
Sowell does, and while Sowell wasn't pleased with Gingrich's criticism of Bain, he was downright disgusted with Romney's false characterization of Gingrich's consulting work as "lobbying."
Donate now if you haven't already
as long as paul is pulling 13-15 noone catches romney no matter who else drops out and this
if she endorses it will be romney...but i think she will stay out..if she was gonna do it for anyone else she would have done it by now....)
I agree , now the numbers are in I can be happy to see where I live N FL still went for Newt .
Problem in my state is all these liberal yankeee who bring their north east politics with them and if course we got burned by the so called soccer MOms again
As for the money, he spent 25 million compared to 5million, hardly a guy who knows how to get bang for his buck, we were carpet bombed with negative ADs here from Romney and the sheep who see an R sat there and thought it was all true.
Think of this.
Newt had 5 million and if Santurom had got out of the race like Perry, Michelle, Cain did then this race would have been s tight that Romney would not have got a big bounce and the headlines would have been , Romney spends big but only scrapes a win .
I heard Romney last night thinks we’ll unite, YEA RIGHT ROMNEY HAS LOST MY AND MY FAMILYS VOTE FOREVER
25 million to 5 million
13,000 ADs to 200 ADs
He lost my area of N FL where we don;t have as much north east types here.
If Santorum had not been in then the headline would have been Romney spends big and only scrapes win
Now Romney gets head wind and it is thanks to Santorum and those who voted for him wasting their vote.
To think if Santorum had put his ago aside.
As for Romney , I heard he said we will unite to fight obama
HUH ER NO You will never get my family to vote for you after how you and the establishment attacked a candidate, and ignored us the base of which you need here in FL,
You lot made a serious mistake, we might have liberals voting for Romney but last night up in N FL where the base is you Romney lost it and you will never get it so might as well give FL up boy
Florida is not part of the south. It is an extension of New York. The “natives” have been overtaken by northern retirees.

Here is what I found when I went to Newt.org.
They have a form there that they wish to have filled out.
I don’t want to fill it out because I don’t wish to be on their mailing list, but I intend to get a $20 dollar bill in the mail this morning. I know it isn’t much, but every little bit helps.
Thanks I found it.
***When Santorum graciously steps aside the conservatives will unite.***
Santorum has no grace - he is a very angry young man whose influence on his supporters, IMHO, is probably even more anti-Newt than anti-Romney.
BTW did some of Bachmann’s, Cain’s and Perry supporters mail in early ballots for their candidates?
She talked a good game. She seemed sincere.
Thank you for your factual posting and giving the Newt Team evidence that Newt can win this thing! Keep posting and thanks again!
Don't want to rain on your parade, RomneyBOT
BUT please favor us with an explanation of how
Romney's imposition of gay marriage, RomneyCARE,
Romney DEATH PANELS, Romney Backstabbing,
Romney's murderer-freeing judges, and Romney's
coverup of the BIG DIG relate to FREEDOM?
Watching a news show this morning and a pundit said what I think is going on. Santorum and Newt feel the sincerity of the anti-Romney crowd and feel that all they have to do is hang on until the other drops out to clean this thing up. Problem is that it is like playing chicken behind the wheel and neither driver turns away. Both crash.
Imbecile. They insult us with trolls like this!”
The link is how I caught it.
Plus, I didn’t remember you as a Mittbot. ;-)
slight correction, up here in N FL we are still the old south, you might want to refer to the middle and south as the Yankee land.
Newt took the north , Romney took the middle and south where all the yankess are.
Santorum took, well just votes and they took them away from Newt thus helping Romney
You, young man, are either a Mittbot or a Paulbot. Your posting history is on display. Defend yourself or GTFO.
Whilst I’m not in agreement with you about supporting Mitt, I am also dissapointed in the wave of anti-LDS bigotry.
Its beneath us.
I be a Southerner and no one I knew growing up in Alabama ever thought of Florida as a Southern state. We always, even then, 1950s and 1960s, considered it, as you noted, a Yankee retirement outpost.
I'm afraid you're correct. Let's both hope you're not ... but ... it sure looks like you nailed it. And I see some of his supporters here acting as if those who criticize Santorum's sancimoniousness are criticizing Christianity itself.
Gee ... why does that sound familiar?
Thank you for posting this.
Thank you! And for the back up info regarding the form. My thoughts exactly, every bit helps!
Good call on that zot.
If for nothing else, he deserved a zot for his “red hairings” remark.
Woo, an Einstein-Rosen Zot, nicely done! That’s almost grounds for a ST list ping. :’)
