You know what they say, “...as goes Guam, so goes Outer Mongolia and Cameroon” where they can’t vote in US elections, either.

Guam likely has a lot of Mormons if you can tell by the number of Quamese who played football at BYU over the years.

Voters for Backstabber Romney tend to be
dog abusers, cheaters, and liars or just
in love with them.

When yer purpose is to suck at the teat, and yer small enough to not be noticed, you can vote “Republican” and still get a nanny-statist. The best of both worlds...

This doesn't surprise me, he's the only one who sent a campaign representative there, I believe it was one of his sons.

There are actually a lot of delegates to be had this week and next “off shore”. It's good strategy by Mitt to pursue them, the others should have too. I suspect Mitt will get them all except for possibly Hawaii, but there's a large LDS population there too, so it could go either way.

March 10
Guam 9 Delegates
Northern Marianas Islands 9 Delegates
Virgin Islands 9 Delegates

March 13
American Samoa Caucuses 9 delegates
Hawaii Caucuses 20 delegates

March 18 Puerto Rico Caucuses 23 delegates

Just think of this MR makes sure he gets delegates in Guam.
Some of the GOP candidates dont even get on the ballot in important US states. Cmon what is wrong with this crew.

Other than a brokered convention, this is a delegate race, and every single one matters. Why no one else is pursuing these small ones is beyond me. There’s about 80 delegates total here in these island caucuses in the next couple of weeks. That adds up!

>> Why no one else is pursuing these small ones is beyond me <<

Probably because none of the three “non-Romneys” got into the race with a realistic thought of actually winning the nod:

(a) The Newtster got in so as to increase his books sales and speaking fees.

(b) Santo got in so as to raise his name recongition as a DC lobbyist and possible 2016 candidate.

(c) Ronny the P got in so as to bolster the Libertarian movement.

In other words, none of the three ever expected to be where he is today. Therefore, none of them bothered to solicit support in all “57 states” of the Union.

He did pick up the Marianna Islands 9 delgates too. Won 100% in Guam and 87% in the Mariannas.

Here's the figures after Romney took both last night...small contests ignored by the other candidates but to which Romney sent one of his sons. The results are that he added all eighteen of those delegates to his count.

As I have stated, Santorum and Gingrich have to unite soon to stop Romney. If Santorum can upset Gingrich's southern strategy and win Mississippi and Alabama, perhaps then Gingrich will throw in behind Santorum.

Rick Santorum appears to have put his foot in his mouth again here.

“...The former Pennsylvania senator created some controversy in Guam last January when he said the left-leaning judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco should be banished to the island. Santorum tried to make amends Friday with an apologetic phone call to Guam Republicans but it did no good....”

Ugh. Every friggin’ week with Rick.......

Those same 9 delegates are more that Newt got in Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida, Colorado, Maine, Michigan, Arizona, Wyoming, Washington, Ohio, Massachusetts, Idaho, North Dakota, Alaska, and Vermont combined so I'm not sure what point you are making.

I really hope that with the conservative states of Kansas, Alabama, and Mississippi making their decisions next, we will soon be able to unify behind one candidate to defeat Romney.

Chips are what counts and Mitt picked up 9 more....

It's becoming clear that for a true conservative to become POTUS again in this wonderful country, a 3rd party or other means is the only way it is going to happen.

Why do you think a third party has any chance of gaining WH? Palin warned of this approach, and is against such an idea.

A third party will do nothing except further fragment the GOP and hand Obama the next 4 years.

There are only two options... winning enough delegates or contesting to a brokered convention. There is no viable 3rd party option that will secure the WH. Palin has said as much herself.

I'm confused why do we still have territories from World War 2? This is the most insane election I've ever seen. I'm supposed to care about small islands so far from Washington DC and aren't tourist attractions like Hawaii???

Maybe Romney can plop some supporters on Iwo Jima and Pelelui and demand delegates! Wow, ridiculous...

Mitt seems to be using the strategy of winning races that award delegates, while some of the others seem to be using the strategy of winning moral victories without getting delegates.

A lot of people want to blame Newt for Santorum losing and Santorum for Newt losing, but the truth is that Romney is the only one running a serious campaign.

“Cmon what is wrong with this crew.”

It’s Organization, GOTV, and MONEY that win nominations, not TV debates.

Romney has had four years to plan for this. It’s showing, now.

Newt and Santorum were both essentially broke.

Of the two, Newt did by far the best job in lining things up. He tried in VA as did Perry, but the only ones who passed muster there were the two who ran before, Romney and Paul. Their submissions were not checked.

Santorum did not even try to qualify for VA ballot.

Santorum has difficulties in various states with delegates and will not win as many delegates as his vote totals would suggest he should.

Newt does not have those delegate problems.

Ron Paul is a special case. He is a Libertarian masquerading as a Republican in order to have a chance to draw attention, get in the debates and get anywhere at all. He may very well go third party, or if not, negotioate his son Rand onto a ticket in return for his delegates.

Newt is a man of towering accomplishment and intellect. He wanted to drive the debate and rehabilitate himself politically and personally, from what I have seen of his run, but without money and organization such as Romney has out the wazoo, he has done amazingly well.

Before Romney unleashed the neutron bomb of lying ads on Newt, he was the leading candidate of all, nationwide.

He crashed in Iowa due to that attack, recovered in the good state of SC, then hobbled into second to Mitt’s powerful FL punch. Early votes alone, for Romney, were enough to sink Newt there, but Romney false Newt ads were a 65-1 ratio to negative ads about Mitt.

Given all, Newt did much better than Santo in doing necessary nuts and bolts. Neither were flush enough to contest Mitt on far off islands, as important as each delegate is.

Ron Paul does well organizationally, but he isn’t a Republican and many people love him on some things and believe he’s insane on others. Therefore no matter what, he cannot win states and caucuses, but does collect a lot of proportional delegates to use as leverage.

True... I’ve noticed Romney spends almost none of his time campaigning in caucus states.

So, those territories have a total of 59 delegates (excluding HI)... that’s quite a lot of delegates than people realize...

Yeah, under the radar. The way it goes, with Mitt is the only one who bother to send a campaign rep to those territories, he’ll get a lion share of delegates there...

You completely miss the point. If Myth Romney is the nominee, there will be a leftist president; the only question is whether the leftist will have an “R” or a “D” next to his name. Most here aren’t that into the “crips versus bloods” stuff.

The only way to EVER get a conservative president is to have the GOP nominate a conservative. If they choose to nominate Myth, it will be important to have a CONSERVATIVE 3rd party take enough votes away from him that the party learns is simply cannot continue nominating from the left of the party. If we don’t do that, we’ll keep getting Dole/McStain/Myth type nominees.

With Romney in the R race - we basically have a two party system as ONE.

So a third party is not really a third but a second party.

I agree. We are really down to ONE party with two names to deceive. We need a second party.

No it’s not. It really a second party. We only have ONE now with different names.

Mitt is so far from being a republican as I am from being a liberal. So all bets are off for those who can see the writing on the wall.

Great post! You explained it perfectly. And I’ll add Mitt has no reason being in a R race. His record proves otherwise. We now have a liberal and a libertarian crashing into the republican race.

Romney get’s delegates from Guam, the NM Islands, the Virgin Islands, and Wyoming.

Thankfully it doesn’t seem like anyone gives a damn (see the funny comment in post #2) so RS is the winner of the day for taking Kansas.

I'm confused why do we still have territories from World War 2? This is the most insane election I've ever seen. I'm supposed to care about small islands so far from Washington DC and aren't tourist attractions like Hawaii???

Agree!

This is a future President of the (United States) that is being considered for election come November. Where does the Constitution allow places like Guam, etc. decide who will become the nominee? So it's a territory. So what? Is China, Russia, Iran, etc. next?

I feel like the US is becoming more and more like the UN. If Obama gets elected, he will be very happy to let the UN take full control of the country.

God help us.

Well there are two reasons we have all of these stupid territories in the middle no where. Spanish American War which 99% of Historians believe was made up so we could grab Puerto Rico and The Philippines.

Other territories we got from Lend Lease under Obama's hero FDR.

Call me a racist, or an anti-island bigot, ect... but give Guam, Samoa and Puerto Rico back to their people, this country is enough of a basket case without having to worry about people living in jungles chucking spears at wild hogs!

I'm cranky because we lost so many men fighting in the Marianas, luckily we have the story of the "Marianas Turkey Shoot" (referring to us obliterated the Japanese Navy in WW2)

If I sound like a lib, ban me but when we have so many problems in this country why should I worry about Guam, Virgin Islands and of all places the Marianas Islands other than WW2 I think it's best know for the TV Show "Survivor"!!!

I'd cut them all loose including Puerto Rico, what have they done for me lately? And all the psycho commies in DC who proudly have their "No taxation with representation" I would make DC either a city in Virginia or Maryland. So they can quit bitching about not having 2 rat Senators and a rat Congressman.

If DC had 2 senators the Rats would win with 99.9% of the vote. I'd incorporate DC in Maryland, it'd give em some more criminals to add to the criminals in Baltimore but atleast they can't claim they don't have representation!!!

Sorry smoke break, blood pressure about to explode!!! Stop RINOS NOW!!!

Everything is made worse when you realize that Romney’s have been here for over a century, but NO Romney has ever served in our military.
