FoxNews agree with CNN on TN. Romney vs Newt for second place.

I had hoped TN was smarter than this.

“Willard needs to be a severe patriot and drop out!!!

I have never heard that expression before...I’ve heard of an extreme patriot,,but a severe patriot sounds like a medical condition. Is it just me or does the name Willard remind anyone else of that rat in the movie Ben and Willard. Just wondering....

Hey Onyx, is the paint dry yet?

Oh I doubt Romney will appoint Paul as VP....I don’t think he’s that stupid...well maybe he is on second thought! At any rate Paul got a deal early on, or is positioning himself so they barter for his delegates from the highest bidder no doubt, and why we never saw him take on Romney....he’s been covering for him from the get go...the elite Republicans knew Romney would likely run into trouble and thus Pauls run to hedge him in.

“.the elite Republicans knew Romney would likely run into trouble and thus Pauls run to hedge him in.” You may be right there Caww. It is just tough for my little brain to imagine any of the Paulistas warming up to the R man...so different than what they say they are about.

Not to be overlooked:

Not only will OK, TN, and GA alone bring Newt 100+ additional delegates tonight, but Romney is underperforming expectations in three states already.

We are a third of the way through the process now, and have had many Mitt Romney-heavy states vote already (CO, MA, NH, VT, ND, ID, WY, WA, NV, AZ, VA, And ME). Romney might not even have 400 delegates as of tomorrow, which is a VERY IMPORTANT THING. Why? The majority of the states remaining are not Mitt-friendly states, beginning with Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, and Indiana. California allocates by district, and a majority of the districts will go for someone other than Romney. NY/NJ will be Mitt’s sweetest plums, but they won’t be enough.

1144 delegates just got MUCH harder after tonight.

I now openly predict that, based on my calculations, Mitt Romney will fall more than 100 delegates short of the 1144 necessary to be the nominee. I fully predict a brokered convention now, here and on record! I have read the rules for the remaining states this past week with several other folks helping out on the campaign. It would take a tidal wave of momentum in Mitt’s favor to get over the 1144 threshold now.

Hopefully, Mitt gets denied more and more states tonight (ND, ID, AK, among others), but either way we have dealt a deep blow to the GOP-E. Talk of a brokered convention will now get louder, because folks in the “know” are going to be doing the math.

You heard it here first. They will do the math starting tomorrow, and a brokered convention will become very real in everyone’s minds.

I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but the Presidential candidate doesn't do too much for me in this election. I was all in for Herman Cain and lost interest when he flamed out.

You all can pick the top of the ticket, I'll vote for whoever it is. Bottom line - with a Pubbie in the WH, legislation will move. Even Romney isn't going to veto bills that come to him.

(yes, I'm assuming we win the Senate too)

In a brokered convention if all the delegates are released to vote for whomever they want how could Newt lose?
He is clearly the smartest of the four! Maybe that is a possibility?

Romney’s wins are not impressive. Newt and Rick were not on the ballot in Virginia, and there’s no chance Vermont and Massachusetts will go Republican in November.

It seems to me that if either Rick or Newt bail out tomorrow, whoever is left will still be defeated by Romney. By the time May 29 comes around, TX will probably be for Romney too, as people like to pick winners. Surely CA in June will be for Romney. Romney is winning many states that he will immediately forfeit to Obama, including both of his home states of MA and MI.

You are a brave soul. Hey, if you end up being correct, can we confab over the football season so you can help me with some games?

Just like in football, I am more a spectator than a participant and I really have no clue how it’s all going to go but like to hear others offer up their ideas. It helps me learn. I appreciate it,,well I appreciate most every poster on FR,,esp those with tattoos,,whose husbands have painted over (ask Onyx)

I don’t care what they say about her hair, I like Missus Newt (a good Wisconsin girl). With Newt’s past who can know for sure, but they seem to have a pretty solid marriage, and clearly show respect for on another, and with marriage under assault that is a good thing to see.

The only thing I really was interested in was a last minute dirty trick against Newt in GA. As soon as I saw he had taken GA, I allowed myself to breathe. It ain’t ovah. Not by a long shot.

My beloved Sarah Palin will endorse him, but I am NOT voting for Romney.

I will write in Sarah Palin’s name and it had better be published as part of the official vote in my local newspaper for all to see.

I will write in Sarah Palin too. That is who I wanted at the very beginning of this mess.

I like her too. She seems a bit cold and removed but I can understand that considering the awful slings and arrows she has to put up with.

As far as first ladies go,,I am inclined to call the current one “Miss Bicep”...so much fuss has been made about her arm definition. Good grief, as if that matters at all!
