Praise God, I have no TV tonight. I would not have listened to that liar Romney anyway.

No unity for him.

He’s ruined this primary with his lies and smears of his rivals.

His lust for power is insatiable.

Think about it.

Two of Newt’s most popular, patriot, conservative, former rivals both are supporting and campaigning for him:

Governor Rick Perry and Herman Cain!

There is of course a huge Newt contingent here. Which is fine. But they all encouraged each other to vote newt in OH today, which hurt our cause. They could have voted santo to stop Romney, but they didn’t want to. Fine, but if mitt pulls this off, even a few hundred Freepers’ voters could have made a difference. It’s frustrating.

In the end, this election is about fighting the mainstream’s choice for us!!

He also ripped a page out of Rick Perry’s book which was the foreward Newt wrote. (That was a few months back.) Something tells me he needs some therapy.

No incumbency backlash accounts for such a huge spread. That PA continues to elect Republicans tells us something was wrong specific to Santorum rather than his spin effort to "blame Bush" for the loss.

The national issue still appears to be the economy. The mid east might heat up but Santorum is the biggest war drum candidate and that will not sell well to a fatigued general electorate. Pro life will not be the deciding issue in general.

Cool thing that CNN did on the virtual convention and illustrating the delegates.

I must give kudos to CNN for providing the most informational and unbiased converage. They do a good job. Much better than Fox with their undercurrents of nastiness and Rove/Romney cheerleading.

Did you hear all the chanting from the crowd during Romney’s speech?

Yes, that "spontaneous outburst" of "USA, USA" was a little weird and seemed awkward and scripted, like the laughtrack on an old sitcom. Very 1980s, it makes me wonder if his campaign party organizers think those of us clinging to guns and religion could be won over on the cheap by a nostalgic chant from 1980s Olympic hockey. I can picture some guys who've never experienced any emotion during the national anthem sitting in a backroom somewhere writing Romney's speech and putting down the instructions : [Pause when Spontanous USA Chant begins.]

I have, OHIO statewide, about 71% of the vote in, with nearly 16,000 votes separating Santorum from Romney, the sep was 14,000 just a little while ago. Gap is growing in favor of Santorum. Turnout is not high in strong Romney urban counties. Cuyahoga is about 40% already in, I think it is something that even if the remaining Cuyahoga votes remaining oddly went en-masse to Romney, it might not be enough to turn the state around for him. Of course, there are some other counties out as well, or partially in. Still, with 71% in with that vote gap of 16,000+, it is looking better for Rick Santorum. Fat Lady has not sung yet.

“But what if it doesn’t work out great for Romney?”
“well, if it doesn’t turn out great for Romney, that could still be good for Romney.”
“in fact, if it doesn’t turn out well for Romney, that could actually be even BETTER for Romney...”

According to some Freepers, why not? Even if Newt only got 15%, he’s entitled to other candidates’ delegates since he’s the most conservative... that’s the only things that count.

NO !! Pa hasn’t “continued” to elect Republicans...at that time, when Santorum lost, we had Ed Rendell as Governor; and a Dem House and Senate in Harrisburg. Bob Casey beat Santorum; then the tide turned...and Toomey won. PA is waaaay more red now than back then.

I noticed that about CNN during the SC primary when by chance I had access to a television.

In the past I couldn’t bear to watch CNN, but for some odd reason they do seem to have some refreshingly straightforward commentary on this primary race.

In spite of all that, the Santorum Super Tuesday Surge has begun and Newt, Lord love him, can go on his superfluous way while Righteous Rick takes out Mitt and then finally the prick.

Santorum’s winning virtue is that he is “real” and good Americans are discovering and liking it.

Beck has been on a campaign to destroy Newt and is over the top about it. I don’t like what I am seeing or hearing and it actually has made me turn Beck off many times and listen to Neal Boortz. I try to glean what I can from him but his viciousness is really unfounded and his glee at anything bad happening to Newt is really disturbing.

Oh, I so don’t agree with you.

This is politics. We’ve all been a little mean to each other here because we get passionate about our candidates and lose sight of reason.

No one deserves what happened to Brit.

No one.

And Brit was the most solid conservative and wonderful voice on Fox for years.

I’m certainly willing to overlook his attitude here.

Spin.

Pure SPIN.

Yep, that was the narrative.

We knew they would talk this way.

The news writers have it written out that way, they just choose from the pile depending on how the vote goes, to spin it either way to pump up a Romney victory, or devalue a Santorum victory.

So predictable. I know how these journos work. Sheesh.

One way or another, Newt will stay with us. He is out for the love of his country. Just having him around is an uplifting experience. It was Newt that made 28, otherwise boring debates, fun to watch.

And Newt is sure to get a spot in any Conservative administration. I would rather it were his, but if not, we still have him around to encourage the rest of is to keep on fighting. (I know you will!)
