Didn't see a thread
Here’s a live thread...http://www.cbsnews.com/primary-election-results-2012/state.shtml?state=MS
Voted Newt....Way to go!!!!! Good feel isn’t it!
Haley Barbour was a huge disappointment to me when he chose Romney. I have lost respect for a number of prominent people during this process.
I didn’t think the Republican turn out was good at all either.
I live in the historic area which fronts the ghetto (solid black) so I know the democrats have a much larger voter ratio, but RLY, only 58 voters before me!
God bless you caww:)
I’ve been in the South and was introduced to sweet tea.... I liked it very much. I suspect it’s very tough on the Southern folks that become diabetic to have to stop drinking it.
I could use a vodka martini right now. Perhaps 3 or 4.
That is true. I think any of them could win, but a candidate that is favored by more voters will get more enthusiasm.
Someone else notices! And given that the state machines in both states (and both capitals in urban areas!) endorsed Mittens...
Thank you, God.
Er,....not you, cookcounty. The REAL one. :)
Bahahaha I just saw Romney on tv defending Romneycare by citing factcheck.org.
Because he, too, “is not Romney”...........if you think about it, “Conservative, not Romney” votes are trouncing Romney by at least 15 points in all states. I’m hoping at this point for a brokered convention, and a leader who has enough guts to point out that the answer is not a more liberal Republican, but a true conservative.
50% rep- Miss- San up 1700 over Newt.
There was nothing exceptional about voting today.
My daughter and I walked in, showed our id, declared our party. We then received our ballots. We went over to a table and marked our ballots. Lines were not long, but we weren’t lonely in the place either. We choose to go in the middle of the day so we wouldn’t be bothered by many people.
We saw no media and nothing extraordinary.
Cautious optimism this evening, though. I'm keeping an eye on Jefferson, Tuscaloosa, Bibb, Madison, and Limestone counties in AL.
LOL. I’m not over weight either, but I do try to watch my sugar intake. I grilled the peppers and ate almost a plateful. The chicken was grilled too, with honey-mustard sauce.
They surely revealed their backsides to us, didn't they?
Newt and Rick NEED to team up...Nootorum or Santogrich...but OBAMNEY and OBAMNEYCARE MUST BE STOPPED.
If Santorum wins we might know why he underpolls...
He dominates in MS in under 44 demo.
Winning by 15 under 30, and 13 in the 30-44 demographic.
The likely scenario is that he is actually driving this age group to the polls... hope for the country.
Just like they voted for Jimmy Carter in 1976.
If you don’t research someone’s background and poltical record, you do not recognize when they’re lying to you.
Voters are being bamboozled by a liar and dishonest establishment politician.
Agreed. He is even worse than that. He[’s no different from his BIL: Dickie Scruggs.
right you-all are!
He scares the crap out of me because I don’t know what his policies are & I have no idea what he plans for the country. Plenty of people have the “right” conservative credentials but that doesn’t mean they have the leadership qualities to be president. I understand the importance of social issues but if we don’t turn this country around financially all the conservative values in the world won’t save it. I’ve heard a lot of platitudes and generalities from him but no specifics. What’s his fiscal/tax policy? Does he plan on dismantling any bloated departments? What’s he doing about Afghanistan? I’ve got a son deploying in a while so that’s important to me? He seems to be tongue-tied and 0bama can be very glib. How will he beat him in a debate? How is he going to fight the press and get his message out? Would he choose someone like Allen West as VP or go with an “establishment” choice to win points with them? What leadership skills does he bring to the table? He was a senator like 0bama just because he served longer doesn’t mean he learned to lead when he was just one against many. He has a child with a rare disease and he took time off the campaign trail when she was sick so what will happen if the same thing happens and there’s a crisis? I pretty much know how Romney and Newt think about these things but Santorum is just too vague. These are my concerns. I’m not really trying to be negative but these are the things I think about.
Have the Soggy Bottom Boys affected voting in Mississippi? (Please make Mitt “A Man of Constant Sorrow.”)
The delegates are “proportional” which means there will be an even to close split of Delegates between the 3 if this keeps up.
I just use Splenda and I have luscious Sweet Tea!
oops I meant Voted Newt good for the poster....I don’t vote til the whole ball of wax gets here to Pa.....and I won’t be voting for Santorum even though he’s from my state...for obvious reasons....... Newt all the way!!!!!!
I use to think most Pennsylvanias wouldn’t vote Santorum for most are still pretty ticked off about all the crap he pulled here....until a few people said they want the “gravey” he’ll send here if they vote for him...
Voters can be bought just as easily as politicians....we are such a sick dang nation of people!
I tried sweet tea last year I think. I couldn’t finish it. When I was young, I could have guzzled it and come back for more. But now, no way, no how.
I knew Cuyahoga (Cleveland) would not go Santorum. Huge lake Erie population and Ricky created a bill to charge boaters for VHF weather radio service, NOA which has always been a free and vital service for them. He won’t take the Erie counties in pa either.
Don’t worry Cindie, its all good. Probably more up on foreign policy than any of the others. He has a definite doable plan to abolish Obamacare with a backup plan. He will be a great President.
Gosh these states are close, though Romney and Paul seem to be slowly fading.
It’s going to be Rick or Newt.
Turnout is low in Mississippi per CNN. This will probably hurt Romney they said.
They should- but Rick apparently doesn’t see it that way.
I agree with your assessment of RS wholeheartedly!
That is the problem for Newt in a nutshell. People know his history and background.
A nice shot of Grey Goose in my Sweet Tea sounds GOOD.
I wonder whether the good doctor would notice?
Mississippi tightening BIGTIME ... S-32.7 G-30.9 R-30.8...42% reporting...
Why did I think you were a southerner? lol ..would think PA liked the earmarks he brought to the state..I am just sick I tell ya
Watch out for Mississippi - I can’t believe Myth is doing well there! I can’t believe Ricky is doing well in Alabama either. Neither can beat Bozo.
“Just had tamales with my brothers Tuesday church night at our house.”
And I had raw veggies and light honey mustard dressing. Send directions to your house. I’ll sit here and drink Amaretto and feel sorry for myself until the directions get here. Really, there must be real food with like, red meat other than chicken, somewhere in the world and you have some.
Bet Newt would pass a law that says I can eat fat and sugar and die young - that would be hard since I’m already 78.
” Haley Barbour was a huge disappointment....”
So many have fallen. Greatly disappointed in Barbour, whom I use to adore, especially in the late 80’s. They are jaded now.
And I have become so cynical myself that at the very least you have to have a record of open wounds and suffering for the cause to even hope for my vote.
Santorum has none of that, but whines over biased coverage like he’s taken a mortal blow. LOL!
And Romney is not even a Republican let alone a conservative.
I may be forced to fall in with Ron Paul before it’s all over! He’s certainly well wounded! LOL!
Not me. I’m a Newt-er and I will not support Santorum.
Santorum should've gotten out before Florida but he's there to marginalize Newt for the establishment and he's done well. That was the last, best time to take the nomination from Romney.
The plot now is to keep Romney from the magic number to win outright.

LOL....can you imagine the birdbrain up against Putin!..... He'd likely tell him he'd get back with him after he checks with his Mormon leadership what they want to do with putin.....the guy doesn't have a single idea in his head that wasn't planted there..............if Obama or Romney get the election ahead we are plain done!
Puh-leze. Most people from Massachusetts and New York think “O Brother Where Art Thou” is a documentary about life in modern day Mississippi.
If we don’t get a conservative this time ‘round, we don’t stand a chance of getting rid of obamacare and all the other baggage he’s foisted upon our poor country.
Have to concentrate on getting the Senate turned, too. That is critical...especially if (God help us) the zero wins again.
I don’t want to even consider THAT, though. :(
Newt’s catching up in Mississippi !
