“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.
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.”
As Newt is speaking, Ohio appears onscreen as a 38 - 38 tie between Romney and Santorum (17% in)...
Newt doesn’t sound like he’s backing down.
Newt shouldn’t back down. He knows the delegate count’s not in yet!!
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.
“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.
According to CNN, 42 votes separate Romney and Santorum in Ohio.
Then, let's hope that Paul doesn't sniff 100 delegates.
This is a really bad night for Mittens.
> As Newt is speaking, Ohio appears onscreen as a 38 - 38 tie between Romney and Santorum (16% in)...
YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!
They are each at 37.8% now. Pleeeeeeeease, Lord!!!
Hey Cato...have a slice of Di Carlos for me!
Love it! And will pass it on!!
The GOP-E in TN will pick Santorum's delegates there.
I wonder how they will vote in a brokered convention.
Count me among them.
That phone call from Obama isn’t helping Mitt.
Lose OHIO Willard...Please God!
Fox said the urban counties are almost finished reporting. I’m hoping soooooooo much for Santorum can pull off Ohio.
Oklahoma @ 14.9% reporting.
Rick Santorum 11,598 35.0%
Newt Gingrich 9,003 27.2%
Mitt Romney 8,857 26.7%
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.
Is Ohio a proportional state for delgates???????
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?
^ that was a question. They said the urban counties have reported?
> The problem with your theory is that most conservatives wouldnt urinate upon Mitt if he was flat on his face

I would. Especially if I loaded up on asparagus first.
I know. TMI! But somehow Mittens would deserve it.
Sorry .... while what may be true?
Speaker Gingrich’s speech is a masterwork.
Santorum is now ahead in ohio!
Oklahoma is ground zero of the conservative movement. I’m thinking of retiring there.
“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.
Fox has Santorum ahead in the vote count in Ohio. 81908 to 80594
Hey, its TENNESSEE. Who gives a rats...............................Nobody.
Yes it is. I've tried to post some of it .... but every line is worth hearing and absorbing.
Those Sooners don’t seem to think much of Mittens!
Santorum leads Ohio now with 20% reporting. 38 - 37.
‘Tis a good place to be.
I believe so.
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.
The big ones coming up in the next ten days shapes up well for Newt-orum:
March 10th - Kansas (Caucus, 40 delegates)
March 13th - Alabama (Primary, 50 delegates)
March 13th - Mississippi (Primary, 40 delegates)
March 17th - Missouri (Caucus, 52 delegates)
Then March 24th - Louisiana (Primary, 46 delegates)
Ohio: Santorum 88111, Romney 86159 (Fox)
Yes, Rick beat Mittens one-on-one in MO, but there were no delegates at stake.
