I’m with you, O !

I WILL NOT vote for Mitt Trotsky! I REFUSE to be put in a situation where I’m forced to choose between a socialist (Mitt Trotsky) and a Marxist (Chairman Obama)!

It’s not over yet.......

NO COMPROMISE! NO RETREAT! NO SURRENDER! I AM A CONSERVATIVE! CASE CLOSED!

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.

Sandy Hume killed himself after being arrested for drunk driving. The rumors of a gay affair with Paxon are damnable lies that have been debunked many times.

Maybe the reason CNN is so dispassionate is that they really don’t have a dogin this fight. They are all standing there and admitting what a big win this is, even being this close, for Santorum. It’s like the fox guys will be fined $500 each time they say the word Santorum.

The USA USA USA was fine, the WE NEED MITT and then later MITT MITT MITT chants were wierd. I’m listening/watching to Fox’s SuperTuesday Live chat on line, so I’m probably getting something different than on FOX.

Ohio latest - Santorum still ahead, but tightening

So far Mitt's only 3rd in ND. Unless Sarah's friends can add AK to that list it doesn't look he'll finish worse than 2nd anywhere else. Newt finishing 3rd in TN, OK, OH, no 2nds, winning his own state with less than 50% and and 4th (or like Rick, out in VA) doesn't leave Newt looking very strong. Santorum's only 3rds are GA and, probably VT. It's still conceivable he'd catch Paul in VT for 2nd.

As an aside we should give thanks to all the Newt and Rick voters in VA who held their noses to cast protest votes for Wrong Paul! I wish there could have been more!

Mormons only vote for mormons. Blacks only vote for blacks. Catholic only voting for Catholics.

Can’t Americans just pull their small minded heads out of their butts and just vote for the BEST candidate for EVERYONE??

(which would be Newt).

Oh, but no ....we all have to split and fracture into millions of little fiefdoms. It’s so idiotic.

Look amigo, you don’t have an argument. Newt gets less votes than Romney and Santorum. This has nothing to do with physics, calculus or whining about negative ads. It’s simply a fact. Two other points. Keep your advice to yourself and buy a sense of humor.

MItt Trotsky

ROFL

I had to vote for Mitt Trotsky in 2006 when i lived in MA. he bumped
off the woman Governor Jane Swift (R), who was elected lieutenant governor
and became governor after Paul Cellucci (R) became ambassador to Canada.
This was after Gov. William Weld (R) left and Cellucci who was elected Lt. Governor
filled in.

See there is a long list of Republican governors in MA starting in 1990.

he was running against Democrat Shannon O’Brien. And barely won.

He bumped Gov. Swift out so he could run for Governor so he could
run for President.

He is a brazen opportunist!

Mitt -— he just keeps trying out for President.

Newt can still do this, listening to his strategist now..

Just emailed FOX and asked what the heck is up with leaving GEORGIA off their ticker tape. No accident IMHO.

Newt has to fight a bigger battle than the others. All elites are afraid of him.

OK, I’ll back off just a bit. I have been a huge fan of Hume. But his stunning lack of professionalism in his treatment of Newt - now coupled with a knowledge of the reason why - has caused me to have nothing but contempt for him.

He ought to recuse himself from “analysis” if he can’t remove his personal vendetta - particularly one that doesn’t appear well founded. At the very least he ought to disclose it.

If Saul Alinsky were alive today, I’d say to him Hey Saul, no matter how much you want it to be true, ridicule is not the greatest weapon.

Sincerity beats ridicule, Saul. Honesty beats ridicule. To put it more plainly—truth beats lies.

Sarah likes strong guys and, as Newt said in his speech, people might pay to see him debate Obama. I know I would.

“When they tell you that you must vote for Romney because Scalia and Kennedy might retire from the Supreme Court, you will be expected to come back on board. It’s inevitable.”

I think it’s a pretty good reason. Would you rather Obama or Romney appoint to the Supreme Court? Are you kidding me?

Romney is closing gap somewhat on Santorum, at 79% (maybe 7,000 vote sep). It might be a photo finish for Ohio. Either way, Romney was humiliated, spending that kind of cash with that kind of establishment endorsements.PS Some kind of irritatingly speaking lesbian type person named “Sally” on Fox TV is blabbing on right now. Definite gender assignment issues.

Not if the DUI is part of a larger downward slide due to alcohol abuse.

It’s ugly to bring Brit Hume’s loss into the commentary on his animosity towards Gingrich. Whatever the reason, it’s quite visible that BHume cannot be fair or balanced where Newt is concerned.

Still, I loved seeing Neil Cavuto watching anxiously as Sarah rattled off all the reasons why Newt is the BEST candidate to beat Obama in the general. I think he was pleasantly surprised that she picked his show to announce her vote.

Seriously. You can’t help but lose respect for someone who has a personal reason to dislike someone, but not the class to recuse himself from analysis. Hume is not the professional one would have thought.
