I've been waiting for Eric to tell me who to vote for!
Or have I?
I have had Cantor pegged as a RINO for a long time now. He’s my Congressman but neither my wife or I vote for him.
so...why was Fox showing a pic of Sen. Paul Ryan, when reporting this story?
“Rick could have won in Michigan with 60,000 votes if Newt’s supporters would have helped Rick with a win there...
The fighting among the Newt supporters and Sanotrum supporters has to stop now, now is the time to make the difficult decision, and the only thing that we can even relate and remotely agree on is that Romney is not the one for us to be the GOP nominee. “
So we are supposed to “take on for the team” to push a candidate we consider to be weaker than wet cardboard?
I dont seem to remember the desire of the Santorum people to be so helpful to Newt at any time.
We stand by a candidate that has been unjustly slandered by the GOP establishment. We are not doing it just to then vote for the guy that happily benefited, and participated, from that.
I'm pretty much with you. I will vote for George Allen for senator since I think he is with us but I'll ignore the top of the ticket, the Congressman (it's Eric Cantor, what can I say?), and pretty much everything else.
I'm starting to believe that we have no obstacle to the liberals now. Their education campaign has succeeded and they have dumbed down the electorate to their tastes.
This begging is exactly what ClearCase_guy and others like him want.
They want to show their conservative purity, call the rest of us weak kneed rinos, and sleep the sleep of the ClearConscience.
I say, vote for whomever you choose, but when it's over, you still need to wake every day and consider what you've done to or for your Country.
They'll get no begging from me only ridicule for their false sense of importance and purity.
To ClearCase_guy and others just like him that daily threaten to not vote or vote write-in candidates, I am like the frenchman in his garden being shown by google urinating...on them.
I am no fan of Romney’s, but it’s baffling that some hereon would rather keep Obama, who is absolutely, relentlessly dedicated to the destruction of the country. I totally disagree with some of Romney’s policies but I have never thought of him as actually wanting to tear down the U.S. - and like it or not, that’s the choice we may be confronted with. I just can’t relate to the “let’s die quickly and teach them a lesson” concept.
Eric is fraud and front man sent out to fool the tea party crowd .
He and Bonehead vote in all the Obamacare finding to please
Bonehead and Mitchy real bosses called the DC lobbyist machine .
Somehow these Lobbyist front men have Killed all
The energy to drive the Soros prop and his handlers from power .
Thanks Boehead and cantor !
“...come November I dont give a GD who our candidate is, I will be voting for him, to send that disrespectful America hating A-hole back to Chicago.”
Anybody who doesn't is a short-sighted, irresponsible fool.
If obama wins 2012 there will be no second chance. Demographics and a Kagan/Sotomayor SC will kill America.
Many people just don't want to send a message during the primaries that Romney is any way tolerable. If those folks say "I hate Romney, but yeah I will hold my nose and vote for him against Obama" it is basically a concession that, in the end, he actually is at least somewhat acceptable. To try to hold the line against Mitt and get a better candidate that is more representative of the conservative/Tea Party grassroots, it is arguably better to not concede that in the end folks would vote for him anyway.
If Romney becomes the nominee things will change. Most conservatives will vote for him in order to get rid of Hussein. People like Sarah Palin will end up aggressively campaigning for him to lock up the base, the media will slant against Mitt to such an extent that the grass roots will rally, Romney will end up on the right side of enough issues, etc, etc.
The real problem with Romney as the nominee (aside from the fact he is not a conservative) is not that he won't get most right of center votes, it's that he generates virtually no enthusiasm from the very people the party needs to mobilize GOTV efforts. It is the grass roots conservatives that go door to do, man phone banks, send out mailers, etc. Mushy moderates, Mitt's real constituency, aren't the kind of people that generate real excitement. If Romney were nominated, I am guessing we will see a Romney/Rubio ticket, so perhaps the combination of Rubio and high profile supporters like Palin might generate the needed level of enthusiasm. I have my doubts though.
Cantor, McCain and Barbour were three of four ‘Republicans’ who had ‘a plan’ set up for the country, said ‘plan’ specifics taken down immediately following the 2010 elections.
How much lucre did it take, Cantor? What was your price?
We have known this for a long time.
“””Cantor did his best to block the effects of the 2010 conservative election victory, and to block the tea party in the congress, and he is a backer of Mitt Romney.
Cantor is part of that enemy tribe of anti-conservative rinos that has been uncovered since 2008 and especially in the 2010 election and its aftermath.
Cantor threw his support behind Scazzafava, against Palin, and for Mitt Romney, and against Bachmann for house power, after the 2010 win.
Cantor is the problem, not part of the solution.

Excellent! Beating Romney isn’t the issue.
Beating Obama and overturning all his socialist, progressive, fascist policies is the only thing that matters.
House-Senate-Presidency in 2012!
IF Romney is the nominee - he will copy McCain’s VP selection and choose a dynamic, charismatic conservative to fill in all the gaps in his resume.
Don’t have a clue who is on his radar - but Allen West would be a great choice to keep Romney focused and attract conservative votes as did Sarah Palin.
I didn’t like or trust Cantor last year and after 14 months of failures I like him even less now. His wimpy superior lecturing style, much like Obama’s, doesn’t work with me either especially with his consistent record of failure.
I see Cantor just had to take the bait and slap Rush down too. Loser!

I'd agree, though West is only a 1 term congressman. Don't think he really has the experience for a national campaign. My guess is that it will be Rubio. I think Rubio's claims that he is not interested in the VP slot was simply because he is so obviously a great choice that the media would have obsessed about it for the past year and through till the convention.
Romney would need more though. He really is just that uninspiring. If Mitt were nominated, he'd also depend heavily on folks like Palin to gin up enthusiasm for his election and I am sure she would campaign hard for him.
Wake up? Obama would crush Santorum in debate. It would take Bam about two minutes to get under Ricks thin skin and make him say something stupid. One thing Santorum has continually demonstrated is that all too often he shoots from the lip without engaging his brain first.
The only one I saw get slaughtered in the debates was Newt Gingrich by Mitt Romney when he reminded Gingrich of his own portfolio having Fanny/Freddie stocks and Newt immediately went blank and gave a stare with his mouth wide open in fear of his life. It was an embarrassing moment for Republicans. Newt does not do well with getting attacked by liberals which means he would be horrible debating Obama just like he was debating Romney. Newt does well in a positive environment but I think when he is picked on it takes him back to childhood where he was made fun of and he does not know how to attack back.
Dig into his record. Inspect his baggage. Discovery why he really lost reelection by that 18 points, the most for an incumbent senator in over 25 years.
He slipped into the Senate on the back of Newt's 1994 Republican Revolution, he stayed in the Senate when W won in 2000 and when he didn't have coat tails to ride, he was swept away on his own record. He has not won among women and lost 61% of their vote in 2006.
LOL! So now we will be condemned to Hell for not supporting Santorum?! You are one SICK puppy!
Better than Philadelphia.
Well, color me surprised
Well, color me surprised
They had him stuttering and in a rage. It was hilarious! Newt sat quietly back and let it happen, and took advantage of the situation, which Newt then went of to illustrate his level intellect and ability to handle himself under pressure.
Santorum comes apart like wet toilet paper. It's a simple and obvious fact.
You must have been the only one to see it. Nobody else has mentioned such things and the media said that he did good, but Romney did better. Now last night Santorum did the best of the three according to Fox News. The only thing that matters is how many states each one wins on Tuesday. If Newt wins only one state, he seriously needs to get out of the primary. Winning only 2 states out of 23 states is not good at all.
Cantor came on immediately after Newt. David Gregory gave him several of the same questions.
Compared to Newt, Cantor looked like an incompetent stuttering fool. If you didn’t see it, I would encourage you to watch both interviews.
It’s quite a contrast.
“Many people just don’t want to send a message during the primaries that Romney is any way tolerable. If those folks say “I hate Romney, but yeah I will hold my nose and vote for him against Obama” it is basically a concession that, in the end, he actually is at least somewhat acceptable. To try to hold the line against Mitt and get a better candidate that is more representative of the conservative/Tea Party grassroots, it is arguably better to not concede that in the end folks would vote for him anyway.”
Good point (I voted for Newt in the AZ primary) - it’s those folks who hate Romney so much they have convinced themselves we’d be better off with Obama for the next 4 years that I don’t understand.
Cantor is in the wrong party, not one conservative bone in his body.
“You must have been the only one to see it. Nobody else has mentioned such things and the media said that he did good, but Romney did better.”
Straight up ridiculous. There has been much commentary about Rick’s “took one for the team” moment, and his inside Washington explanations of voting for this or that. The vast majority of people that commented agree that Newt easily won, and that is was the beginning of the Santorum slide that continues to this day. You’re not even serious if you think that debate was good for Rick.
You know what? You are delusional if you think Santorum is on the slide and Newt is not. Michigan! Romney home state and Santorum almost took it from him. Newt took the votes from Santorum. Washington....Santorum came in a strong second....Newt was LAST again.....Newt took votes from Santorum AGAIN. Tennessee...Santorum is in first place...Gingrich is in third. Georgia....Newt is in first but it is his state of 20 years and is expected just like Michigan was for Romney. Ohio...Santorum is winning and Newt is in LAST again. So don’t give me your Santorum is falling while Newt is rising. That is not true. You can’t say the last place candidate is winning. It is irrational.
Where to begin? Rick had a big lead in Michigan then couldn’t even pull it out with liberal Democrats supporting him. Rick did not come in second in Washington. To my knowledge Ron Paul did. Rick is fading fast in Ohio, and doesn’t even have a full slate of delegates. Newt is rapidly closing in the South while Rick is slipping everywhere. Rick has only won caucuses where very few people voted. His campaign continues to sputter because he can’t keep on message, or keep his foot out of his mouth.
It is you who is delusional. Good luck Tuesday!
Good luck Tuesday!
I have no idea why you’re ragging on me. I have no real problems with Santorum, just prefer Gingrich because I think he’s a more experienced, more accomplished conservative and I especially like what he accomplished as Speaker and his more aggressive plans to Newter our out of control federal government. You can rag on me until hell freezes over, but I’m not changing. And I couldn’t careless about who supports him.
Do you happen to know what it would take to start a NEW party for
2016 election. Is it possible to get this done in a 4 year period of time???? What would be the cost and if WE on this site possibly Sarah,
and some Tea Party groups, is this at all possible???? Do you believe
that the PEOPLE can SAVE our country???
Ohio is a toss up [within the MOE] according to the polls listed in the above link of Super Tuesday primaries. Santorum looks strong in OK and has stumbled a little in TN. Gringrich appears on track to win GA. Romney appears to win MA, VT, VA. There are three caucuses not listed, AK, ID, ND.
Who knows how all this will shake out but by Tuesday night we may have a better understanding of where it may be headed.
look at the delegates.
Wash state and Michigan were really ties
Shake out, the facts are newt has no way to win, rick still does, so it is now willard or rick, time to decide.
Who to believe, who to believe.
If the Lord takes it as a personal insult that Mr. Santorum might lose, this whole country, or at least those who consistently vote liberal, would have been smited long ago.
That the Lord and Creator of all that was, is or ever will be has a stake in the political winners and losers of this nation makes as much sense as praying that a particular side wins a football game.
Either that, or He does have a sense of humor, in allowing the likes of Schumer, Boxer, Murrey and the like having a say so.
B I N G O !!!

If I lived in Cantor’s district, I would base all of my future votes against him on his endorsement of the Massachusetts nightmare. I would not vote for Romney if he gave me half his income.
Personally, I don’t care if Ronald Reagan rises from the grave to endorse Romney, I still will NOT vote for Romney. If Rubio accepted being the candidate for VP under Romney, then I won’t ever vote for him either much less on such a ticket. I look forward to Cantor being driven from public life and now Coburn as well. If Sarah Palin endorses Mittens, likewise. Romney is nothing but a useful litmus test. This is not strategic. This is civil war.
When I was watching Cantor, before Cantor actually announced, I told my husband it would be Romney. Cantor is not the worst, but he is not really that conservative. Just ask Mark Levin.
Mr. 10 favorability Cantor endorses Willard the Liberal.
The RINO comes out of the closet.
All the Beltway boys support who they think the nominee will be. Now if Newt or Santorum come back to win the nomination, Cantor and the other RINOs that mascarade as conservatives will jump on their bandwagon.
This was disgusting news. I’m ready to throw ‘em ALL out and start over!
I’ve asked this before and I’ll ask it again... Where is the evidence that Obama is some incredibly gifted debater? I couldn’t have been more underwhelmed with his debate performances against John McCain.
