“Blah blah blah blah ... 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.”

Don’t call me Shirley.
The problem with your theory is that most conservatives wouldn’t urinate upon Mitt if he was flat on his face
in the street on fire.

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.

Well they won't go for SAntorum since Pauls been opposing him right along....and besides he's way to conservative on the social issues for them, so that would never fly.

So Romney would be the middle ground for them

If Romney picks Rand Paul as VP then guaranteed Pauls supporters will gladly run to Romney's arms.

According to Fox, yes. Now they show Santorum Romney tied in Ohio.

As Newt is speaking, Ohio appears onscreen as a 38 - 38 tie between Romney and Santorum (16% in)...

Thanks for the good news! I needed that.

On a side note I’m currently at Steubenville OH, where Santorum is scheduled to speak tonight.

Right after they announced Newt’s win in GA, they played “the devil went down to Georgia.”

Lol!

“Obama and the DemocRATs have amassed a library full of opposition research against Willard - and half of the things they’ll say is probably true! “

You’re so sweet. You give them the benefit of the doubt, good for you. I am a cynic. I don’t believe for one minute any Dem in this country cares about being truthful,,esp with the stakes so high.

I was waiting for a prediction of delegates and what it meant that I could give credibility to, and yours is it.

We are down to delegate interpretation and strategy. Thanks for posting this and keep it up so we know what’s happening. I’ll send you a Freepmail tomorrow.

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

Then, let's hope that Paul doesn't sniff 100 delegates.

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.

The GOP-E in TN will pick Santorum's delegates there.

I wonder how they will vote in a brokered convention.

I liked Newt’s turtle analogy! It was good. He has the best take on energy,the debt,iran,you name it Newt is the one with the brains!! In a brokered convention I think he has a good shot should it happen.

While that may be true, what happens if Gingrich bows out in the next couple of days? Can Santorum beat Romney in a one on one match?

I would. Especially if I loaded up on asparagus first.

“On the other hand,when I listen to Mr Newt I get the feeling there is a chance we can turn this death ship around.”

Well if there is anyone who has already walked over the hot coals, it’s Newt. The Press has NEVER been fair to Newt.

The other candidates think they know what they are in for,,,my gut is Newt KNOWS what he is up against. He is uniquely qualified to know what he is talking about on a national level and he has never, ever stopped. He is a dynamo!

I don’t see how Newt’s going to get elected, but can you imagine how exciting it would be to listen to him for the next 4/8 years? He’s in line to assume the mantle of the “Great Communicator” in my opinion.

What’s the problem, the evangelical vote came out for Santorum. No one said anything about guns or religion. As an afterthought, are you suggesting that if one isn’t evangelical, they don’t have guns, or religion? Loosen your attitude and get the chip off your shoulder.
