Late to the thread...had a school meeting. Regarding Beck and Newt: I received an email earlier today with a "tease" about his Super Tuesday coverage for tonight. When I clicked on the link, it was a mock scene of Newt's campaign headquarters closing shop. WTFluke has happened to Beck?

I signed up for his original Insider Extreme because of the great Breitbart type reports he was doing on Soros and others. But, I'm ready to cancel over this crapola.

Have to disagree. Newt was GREAT on meet the press.

He got all his points in before succumbing to Gregory’s whining and he answered that very well indeed.

Loved the points he made in his acceptance speech about Obama. Hysterical.

May send him $2.50.

Hume blames Gingrich for the outing/suicide death of his son, who was a reporter having a gay affair with almost-Speaker Republican Bill Paxon.

Wow that's the first I ever heard why his son committed suicide. Horrible story and if Newt had a hand in it, worse still.

The way I am reading TN rules for handing out Delegates. 2nd and 3rd place could wind up with 15 or so delegates apiece. Leaving the winner somewhere around 25.

Providing that current trendz hold.

Each of the state’s nine congressional districts gets three delegates, and those are handed out proportionally to the top three finishers. A candidate gets one if he takes at least 20 percent of the vote in the district, and he gets all three if he wins two-thirds of the vote.

Thanks Titans and onyx. You have fought a great fight for the Speaker and despite what FAUX News and other rinos say...in my heart of hearts I know the most intelligent voters are for Newt. Sorry, but the rest are weak as far as accomplishments and I mean historical accomplishments go...God help America and our children

Thus the issue we have. Supporters from neither of these two are ready for their guy to drop out.

As I said over on the Gingrich Georgia win thread, neither Gingrich nor Santorum are the enemy. We need to be glad for any state that doesn't land in the Romney column tonight.

Amen! We're fighting the world, people. All the media, libs, Romney, GOPe, and more. Let's stick together and beat the odds!

Now, if only I could play Rocky's theme my post woud be complete. :-)

Do you understand the concept of opposing force? It’s like vector sums in basic physics.

The vast majority of negative ads have targeted Newt. Yet he is still in the race.

This tells you Newt’s ability to win votes is largest in magnitude, among all the primary candidates.

I agree. Britt Hume should get the heck out of reporting because he is 100 percent partisan. I know others are too but he is the nastiest. I hate that Bush campaign guy that we used to call “Mr. Brilliant” or some crap. He was bashing both Newt and Rick earlier tonight.

To: Rational Thought
If I were you, I would be cautiously optimistic. You have no idea how far this country has turned to the Left. There are more activists on our side, but there is an even bigger army behind Obama this year than there was in 2008.

Obama is an incumbent, another 15 Million illegals are here and most will be allowed to vote. The numbers are somewhat sobering if not terrifying from where we stand.

Look at the recent situation with Rush. They are down right radical and extremely motivated, and they will use this kind of tactic, all the way to the election. I really hope we can win over that evil, but so far, it looks like they are in control and winning.

Newt came across well,you are right.But,if he wanted a game changer,something that would cause everyone even the drivebys to sit up and take notice,he should have fought DNC Dave all the way. He’s one of the few that could have done it, gotten away with it, and won.

I will NEVER forget or forgive!

I'm with you Katie.

Mark Levin spoke to this today; that Romney is counting on all the conservatives to come to him when he is the alternative to Obama. Problem is, his scorched earth, spending like a drunken sailor, totally negative campaign has so soured many conservatives that they will refuse to support him in the general election. Count me in that group.

Well, thank you. I get annoyed a bit at times but Fox is so much better than CNN or MSNBC.

I usually watch the two early shows in the morning and they lean way conservative although they do, of course,have liberal guests and panelists.

They are going to do everything but throw the kitchen sink now at his challengers (except Paul). Just watch. You ain’t seen nothing yet. Mitt’s going to really get down and do the nasty....armor up!!
