Romney Wins Arizona GOP Primary .
Wall Street Journal ^ | FEBRUARY 28, 2012, 10:07 P.M. ET. | By NAFTALI BENDAVID

Mitt Romney won the Arizona primary and was clinging to a small but persistent lead over Rick Santorum in Michigan Tuesday with about half of precincts reporting.

The former Massachusetts governor had been widely expected to win Arizona. Michigan was the fiercer battleground, and Mr. Santorum hoped a victory there would help him offset Mr. Romney's advantages in money, organization and experience.

But Mr. Romney held a lead of several percentage points in his native state, where his father was governor. If the narrow margin held up, it would give Mr. Romney momentum but might not dispel doubts about his ability to unify the party.

With 50% of Michigan's precincts reporting, Mr. Romney had 40% of the vote to Mr. Santorum's 36.2%. Texas Rep. Ron Paul had 11.5%, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had 6.6%.

Oh, well the state that gave us McAmnesty has done it again.

This state is filling up with libtards and moderates from the west coast and back east. I want out - nothing like when I moved here in 1965.

I know. I just don’t get Arizona at all. If it’s red, then it should vote red, but it’s anything but red apparently. It must be purple now.

Detroit three biggest counties Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne gave the state to Mittens.

With Newt practically taking a pass on MI and a few Democrats stirring the pot. Santorum Lost the Popular vote will have to see how it comes out on delegates.

Wonder how much Mittens and Santorum spent in Michigan. Now Mittens can partially refill his coffers.

Ga, Oh, Tn, Ok on Super Tuesday is the next line in the sand to stop mittens. MA, VT, VI could still easily give mittens 100 delegates.

There’s only a 4% Latter-day Saint demographic in Arizona, and with the higher birth/child rate, even fewer than that are adults (compared to the rest of the population). Maybe you should find a more credible scapegoat.

While not the longest uptime I’ve seen, the server hadn’t had a break in over 1,195 days. I guess it decided to go to lunch.

1,195 days? Is that all?

ONLY 3 years and 100 days? ;)

I've worked in both government and private industry data centers that would kill for HALF of that uptime.

You do good work!

You know what’s going to be funny, when all you guys line up and vote for Romney cause’ you know 4 more years of Obama and it’s over for good, that’s the truth, and you’ll do it, you know you’ll do it. He’s not my choice, Newt is, but I’ll vote for damned near anybody to get these traitors out of office. So, shut the @#$# up, quit yer crying, and get in line, cause that’s where were all headed. Quit fretting and worrying and hoping, it is what it is ...

We are the few that remember her glory, the rest of the American’s are busy on their cell phones, face book, and watching jersey shore.

Santorum’s gonna get more delegates though, if the projections hold.

Oakland county’s 30k margin is precisely the statewide total.

Don’t blame me. I voted for Santorum. I am willing to bet my county, Yuma County went for Santorum or Gingrich. There is not very many Mormans in this corner of the state.

Sorry, wasn't raised to be a quitter. And that's not the way it has to be, Mitt's no where near victory.

But let's take the gloves off, full page ads against Mitt, a giant tea party to protest him, whatever we can do to show these arrogant a@#$holes that we WON'T "get in line.

I just hate to reboot remote machines. That’s part of the reason this took so long, the box locked up and couldn’t get the machine back into multi-user after a remote power cycle, requiring a 2.5 hour leisurely drive in the middle of the night to give a warm hug to my sick init process. Need to investigate remote consoles.

Romney knew from the start that his victory depended on divided conservative opposition, and he was right.

Newt was well ahead of Mitt in the polls. Then came the media and Mitt anti Newt smears. Even ricky piled on.

Rush added his two cents by curbing our enthusiasm for Newt.

Now we have bupkis.

The End.

Well, this particular machine is not remote facing, thus far less susceptible to attack. They’d already have to be in the network to launch an attack, and in that case I’m screwed anyway.

I compromised my values and pulled for McCain because of SP. I'll not compromise them this time. I will not get in line. I will not vote for one traitor in order to remove another just so I can have "my traitor." I promise if it is 0bama v. Romney, I'll stay home.

I was a one-night stand last election....I won't be the GOPe's booty call whore. If I can't trust you'll respect me in the morning....you'll be rejected at the polls.

Me too. Luckily, MI is a proportional-representation primary - every vote not for Romney makes it that much harder for him to get to 50% + 1 delegates nationwide.

Right. I recently found a possible exploit (that I would rather NOT share on a public forum) and killed the exploit public-facing side. I then asked some other pro's, if the stars all aligned and they got past the firewall, and three other things were all perfect for them, they could still use the exploit, so ... now what?

Dude laughed. He goes, "If they pierce the firewall, we have much bigger issues than this one exploit." :)
