When Romney felt unloved after Super Tuesday, 2008 he dropped out 2 days later...

I hope he fels the unlove this time too...

There have been many missteps in this race. We all have to
vote our consciences, though. I am not happy to see Myth
catching up to Santorum in Ohio. :(

Rick Santorum 366,013 37.5% 9
Mitt Romney 363,527 37.3% 17<-—why does he get more delegates?

We need to fight Romney after tonight with all we’ve got. We cannot trust him to appoint SC judges. No way.

I knew it! He and she like each other. Todd has endorsed Newt and is working for him.

Newt and Rick should do pretty good in all the next of primaries coming up in the South (not Mitt country).

Any NG supporters rooting for a Mitt Romney turnaround victory in Ohio over Santorum?

No. Mitt needs to leave Super Tuesday knowing that outspending your opponents 20 to 1 is a losing proposition.

Hopefully, the Quorum of Twelve will convince Bishop Romney that his money is better spent in Salt Lake City on the new mall.

To be fair it was Reagan who gave us the O’Connor/Kennedy Court. You never really know. Reagan did a lot right, but those 2 were his biggest mistakes. Well, them and Bush.

You failed.

Mark Levin told a caller last night that if it came down to Newt and Romney he will vote for Newt. Gingrich asked to come on Levins show and interviewed with him. Romney would not come on the show.

Well it may have been debunked but I just found something written today that is resurrecting it all . Seems both Gingrich and Armey are implicated in the article. Frankly I had never heard the story until it was reported here on FR. So sad.

I don’t know about the precincts. Map says Romny now has 17 delegates vs. 9 for Santorum.

Current count is 370,558 (S) 367,388 (R) with 86% reporting.

When does Obamney cease being the “front runner?” because Santorum is beating him on message—Myth just had more cash—in Ohio. The drum has to be beat “Mitt, Quit!!!”

I know, only venting.........Romney will likely get it, I am a realist you know. And sometimes I wish I were not so much.

Mitt will only end up winning Vermont, Mass and Virginia where only he and Paul were eligible. Horrible night for the supposed front runner. Newt and Santorum are still in the race.

I know about the delegates, but momentum means more.

Romney will get more delegates because Santorum’s campaign screwed up in several counties and didn’t get their slates or paperwork in order.

To be fair it was Reagan who gave us the O’Connor/Kennedy Court. You never really know. Reagan did a lot right, but those 2 were his biggest mistakes. Well, them and Bush.

Just imagine if Reagan had appointed solid conservatives instead of O’Connor and Kennedy(yes he tried with Bork and Ginsburgm but there had to be someone else besides Kennedy). O’Connor there’s no excuse. Everyone knew about her. Reagan knew. If you read his diaries he was warned but he wrote that he just felt in his gut that she’d be ok. So much for that. Even with Kennedy, if he’d just named a solid conservative instead of O’Connor(and there had to be a more conservative woman than O’Connor out there), Roe v Wade would be long gone and a whole host of other bad decisions would have come out differently. THe country would be very different.

When you have limitless money and 90% of the establishment RINO’s making the rules, it is impossible for a shoestring campaign to have good organization everywhere. Mitt sucks.

Santorum has a shoestring operation. Not a Fortune 500 enterprise like Myth...that’s why this is all the more impressive.

Because Santo did not fill out a full delegate slate in Ohio, this is what is being reported as of now for delegate distribution:

OHIO


Santorum

366,013 votes
37.5%
Delegates 9

Romney

363,527 votes
37.3%
Delegates 17

I’m for Newt but I will vote for Rick but I will never vote for Romney.

That being said the best way to stop Romney is for both Newt and Rick to stay in until the convention and deny Romney from clinching the nomination

Wonderful! Sounds like a duplicate of what happened in Oklahoma with Romney in third place.

I support Santorum, but to see Romney in third place is very good no matter who takes the top two slots. (Even if, as in ND, it's Ron Paul.) We need a two-man race between real Republicans, and Romney isn't one of those two, and while libertarianism has a place in the Republican Party, Ron Paul is good mostly for explaining why libertarianism is wrong.

Whoa. So it sounds pretty well known that Hume was having a gay affair with a married guy. Look, it is obvious dad Brit despises Gingrich. So obviously HE blames Newt for his part in it and not only Armey.

I am very sorry for the Hume family tragedy. But Brit, poor Dad and I feel for him deeply, should recuse himself. He can even say once “I have strong feelings for one of these candidates that precludes me from taking part in analysis this year” or something. Only for the primaries. That would have allowed him t say Newt is a Skunk (in his opinion) without saying it, and to not be up there spitting vitriol every night.

It was also impossible for Santorum to win Iowa but he did.

They just didn’t know about it until two weeks later.

You’ll see.

After they certify, Santorum will win OH.

You know, the general rule is that votes take longer to report from places where there are more votes to count.

Santorum is my guy, but not everything is a conspiracy. The fact that Ohio was even this close is a win for him.
