All Newt’s speeches are works of art. The guy is brilliant!! That’s why it is so dam frustrating he is not in the lead.
I’m glad Mittens is not ahead .... but do you know if this is a winner take all state?
I love Steubenville! Have some family connections there.
[ The majority of the states remaining are not Mitt-friendly states, beginning with Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, and Indiana ]
You forgot KS caucus on Sat. I think Santorum will win, but I’m hoping Newt will. I’m voting Newt nd dragging others along with me to o the same. 40 delegates. I believe 25 go to overall and remainder by congressional district.
Newt just made the case for$2.50 a gallon gas.The way he laid out the case $2.50 is very conservative it could go lower.
I hope Santorum wins Ohio, this would really put a major hurt on Romney.
And increase the chances of a Brokered Convention as well.
I ‘m Catholic. I have guns. I practice my religion. And I see the world as it is not as I would like to be. Peace out.
CNN calling Oklahoma for Santorum:
Best numbers I’ve seen tonight, but a really small turnout so far. I think MI hurt Rick in OH.
“Hey, its TENNESSEE. Who gives a rats...............................Nobody.
I do! I give at least two rats’ asses! I love the Volunteer State (Al Gore was an egregious anomaly). We aren’t dissing TN here now. We have to pull together!
Moot point. Newt's not going to suspend his campaign. He's going to Tampa!
I cheated..I Binged it..:)
Santorum is not in the same league with Newt. They have far different IQ’s. Take away his vest and he’s a double digit loser in his home state.
“We’re on our way to Tampa to win the nomination!”
I loved Newts speech! Obama must have been spitting nails hearing Newt chiding him about the algae and ridiculing him.
Santorum 97,132 38%
Romney 92,456 37%
Gingrich 38,540 15%
Paul 21,275 8%
“Take away his vest and hes a double digit loser in his home state.”
Are you trying to say his vest contributes to his IQ? or his votes? Wow, scary times huh?
Yup. No surprise there. I was at both Tulsa townhalls for Santorum and Gingrich. There was never any doubt.
Rick is the "MALE" Sarah Palin. You can see his crowd there on Fox (online), same kind of great people, same kind of bedrock Americans, same kind of country/patriotic campaign music. This takes me back to 2008 when, even disgusted with McCain as I was, I always got a kick out of Sarah Palin's rambunctious campaign events that were streamed online.
Santorum is great! He knows foreign affairs better than most including Obama. He’d make a wonderful President and he’d turn this country back toward the Constitution.
And precious Willard outspent him 12 to 1. Reminds me of that line in "Happy Gilmour"
[speaking to Shooter McGee after making his first drive of the championship] Do you know what the pathetic thing is? I've just started playing. You have been doing this your whole life.
I have to admit I loved newt’s speech! Congrats to all the newt fans. He is the best speaker (whoops pun) out there!
That reminds me of the late Senator Roman Hruska, R-NE, who once made the odd remark that even the mediocre need representation too. It may be that many of our little Republican primary voters feel threatened by Newt’s intellectualism.
evangelicals and early voting before Newt started rising.
Rick Santorum 97,002 38.4%
Mitt Romney 92,404 36.6%
Ohio, with 23% reporting:
according to CNN.
sing it brother.....
I think it’s a proportional delegate count....Heard Santorum could win popular vote, but come away with less delegates than Romney because Santorum only filled 75% of the “slate” for delegates.
You're right, Santorum is in the winners bracket and Newt is in the losers bracket except for his home state which he won fair and square.
If Santorum can get this far on message alone...imagine what happens when he actually has money!!!
GO RICK!!---GOOD JOB TENNESSEE!
Please Gd let santo take Ohio! I am saddened that the Freepers from Ohio voted Gingrich. We needed to stop rommentum in OH. I sure hope he squeaks it out.
Oh, Lord, the turnout when I went in ...I was one of TWO people in the polling place. It was pathetic.
Why does this godforsaken RINO GOP Establishment want to keep on pushing this guy??? It’s insane!!
23% in: Santorum leads Romney by 5,595 votes, 101,972 to 96,377.
Try a little harder you will get it.(or not)
Fox News trying to make it no big deal that Newt won and laughing about his speech being so long. They don’t like being called the elite media.....
Friggin Brit Hume can’t say one single thing about Gingrich without being a snarky a-hole.
IQ is a poor predictor for the efficacy of a president. In fact, a case can be made against having presidents with high IQs.
Juan Williams and David Hume attacking the Newt speech. ASSES!
Do we know which in districts in Ohio is Santorum not on the ballot, and have they reported yet?
If Newt can’t do well in a state like Oklahoma, I don’t think he’s got a shot.
Thanks very much, TitansAFC!!
Something to be “cheerful” about.
No Romney, no way!
He’s ruined this primary with his venom and vicious attack ads against his rivals.
His lust for this nomination and power is insatiable.
I’ll never for for him.
>Rick Santorum 97,002 38.4%
>Mitt Romney 92,404 36.6%
God. Bless. America.
Prayers DO get answered!
“Reminds me of that line in “Happy Gilmour”
I love that movie! I love hockey too and thought it was hilarious putting a hockey player on the golf course! Brilliant!
My favorite part was the Bob Barker fight scene,,”The Price is Wrong,,Beyotch!” Bob was THE MAN!
