Open for discussion.
I don’t drink. What should I do?
I don't need to engage in these low-level, below the belt, juvenile personal attacks and temper tantrums. The high ground suits me just fine.
I have been through the ringer in this 2012 cycle. There has not been a decent night for me in this election cycle until now, (finally!), with my first choice Herman Cain excoriated bitterly and driven from the race before he could get a single delegate--dashing my hopes-- then my next candidate not given his victory in Iowa that he deserved on election night, but instead given to Bishop Romney with all the MSM hoopla of "Momentum" and "Unstoppable" (Boy they sure changed their tune two weeks later when the numbers were adjusted and Rick actually won). From then on, it has been nonstop Newt-Romney, Newt-Romney, Newt-Romney for the last one month (all the while the little engine that could, the underdog, Rick Santorum, plugging away with his heart and soul and family in it 100% on a limited budget and family/health problems).
I accepted those previous Santorum loses or second places and sucked it up. This is, after all, not bean bag, but rather a hot kitchen.
Now it is my turn to have a candidate I support do well on one of these Tuesday nights. And he did. Exceedingly well. And I congratulate him for it.
I will not forget the number of classy Freepers here tonight who said, "I am supporting Gingrich, but way to go Santorum". This to me speaks volumes and conservative fraternal goodwill. We are in a contest, alright, but we don't have to get petty or nasty about it. I challenge anyone to go back to my posts and find something where I have been personal or nasty on Mr. Gingrich or his supporters. Our first enemy number one is MITT ROMNEY. And, after vanquishing him and the RINO establishment, the whole enchilada, Barack Hussein Patrice Lumumba Obongo. I am glad we can find this common ground, and some people here can have big hearts and say "hey, good job Santorum supporters", and not discount the elections, nor insult the voters of Colorado, Missouri and Minnesota who turned out... Thanks again for your kind words tonight.
Ann has become revolting. I hope someone throws some rotten tomatoes at her.
CNN thinks EL Paso county is going to boost Santorum.
Mitts UNLIKEABILITY?? Ya think, when did they get a clue?
P.S. Media!!! WE DON’T LIKE YOU EITHER.
I agree they are rejecting Romeny, but not so sure if they will embrace Newt?
I wonder if the GOP elites realizes that Romney is just too dam divisive?
Santorum won El Paso by 1700 votes.
There’s LOTS of counties not counted yet which are VERY conservative. (Most all of Western/Southern Colorado is.)
The only real problem could be Larimer County (north of Denver).....I think they may give Romney a lot of numbers.
He’s leaving his hoofprints on Romney’s forehead! Hee hee.
Not yet.....Larimer County is a large county....they are close to Denver (that would be, generally speaking, less conservative voting).
Where you seeing that? CNN still showing Mittens up.
Grand Junction has been in for awhile (that’s Mesa County) and they went for Santorum. Solid conservative county (where I used to live.)
As a Newt supporter I'm so happy to see Rick take Milt out like this, tonight. It's Rick's night...and I applaud his wins :)
Now, if he can take CO for a complete KO!!
If Rick sweeps she’s going on a three day bender with MoDo!
Other sites are reporting different pieces of the results that CNN doesn’t have yet.
A reporter at the Denver post just twitted:
hasn’t updated for a bit. Still has Mitt up by less than 100
SANTORUM WINS COLORADO
That will be tomorrow’s headline. At 1AM Romney holds a slight lead with @ 75% of the vote in. HOWEVER, crucial El Paso county - a heavy Evangelical county with Colorado Springs - is still out. The county has 10% of the state’s vote, and it will go strong for Santorum, putting him over the top.
AND They coming around the curve, the Bishop and Little Ricky are neck and neck. Gaelic Warrior makes the turn followed by Uncle Roo, bring/being the rear. It’s a DEAD heat...WAIT WAIT!.The tooth fairy has just sprinkles glitter dust on the track in front of the horses. THE crownd goes mad/You betcha... Now it’s Noses and NOES they’re approaching the finish line and the winner is.......
I do do a lot of that!
I’ve always thought that when the delegates are named later, in this case at the state convention, they are selected in the numbers they were assigned at the primary/caucus. I believe that as a rule, the number of delegates from the voting is the rule. They cannot award more delegates than the state-wide voting calls for.
People who ran for delegate were asked to declare, but are not bound by that declaration. We also took a preference poll, which is the results you are seeing on tv.
Looks like El Paso County ( Colorado Springs ) calls it.
Rick SANTORUM WON - per GOP head.
Holy conoly they are calling it for Santorum, lol
CNN has 3% more votes in, yet the previous totals are still up there.
They went from 72 to 75% reporting and the vote numbers stayed the same.
Something’s wrong there.
RICK WINS! WOO HOO. When is Romney going to drop out?
Why are you harassing indpndguy? What has he done to “pollute” the thread? To be a “Newt fan” you got a funny way of showing it.
GOP calls it for Santorum.
Good night all.
Jewish Bulletins@JewishBulletinReply COLORADO: U/D: 71% Reporting, Santorum 37.7%,Romney 36%,Gingrich 13.6%, Paul 12.3%. #COcaucus
CNN predicting Santorum wins Colorado!
The pundits are STUNNED! lol; they never saw this coming.
I would think so.
Santorum just took the lead back.
I think all indications are, (trendlines) that yes, Santorum will be THREE for THREE tonight, and Mitt Romney had his >>>> handed to him on a platter. Which is a good thing.
SANTORUM PROJECTED WINNER IN CO PER CNN.
CNN just called it for Santorum with Colorado Springs still out.
“The pundits are STUNNED!”
Ain’t it grand?
Holy Cow this is amazing. Ann Culter on suicide watch.
'night, all :)
