NBC: Romney Wins Illinois Republican Party [Romney Wins Big In IL]
MSNBC ^ | March 20, 2012

NBC: Romney Wins Illinois Republican Party By Michael O'Brien, msnbc.com

Mitt Romney won the Illinois Republican primary with some ease on Tuesday evening, allowing him to likely add at his advantage over his rivals in the tally of delegates needed to secure the party's presidential nomination.

NBC News projected that Romney had won the contest, the lone presidential primary taking place on Tuesday, shortly after polls closed. The primary offered Republicans maybe their best chance yet of a genuine one-on-one battle between the former Massachusetts governor and Santorum, his chief competitor for the Republican nod.

If Romney is going to win the nomination, I want him to start winning decisively. Because I am not a RINO, my number one priority is replacing Obama with whoever wins the Republican nomination.

I agree. Rush has been predicting that whomever the GOP candidate turns out to be, the GOP (and Independents who've turned from the temptations of the Dark Side) will unite to defeat the Marxist. I was certain that I wouldn't vote for Romney if he were to become the GOP nominee, but I'm changing my mind. I'm also beginning to agree with Palin and her thought of: Anybody but Obama (ABO).

Its not over but Mittens has just found the target's range.

It has been leaked that Newt has offered an Alliance with Santorum I doubt we will ever have proof positive. The Ball is now in Santorum corner he must join an Alliance with Newt Now before LA. They can settle Pres/Vice in Tampa or add someone else then.

We need Santorum’s SoCon and Newt's FiCon as one team. Without the other’s strength Mittens will continue to unleash the GOP-e Millions on Whomever threatens taking delegates.

IMO

Who know what would have happened. Sure I wish that Santorum would have endorsed Newt in Florida and have Newt endorse Santorum in Ohio, Michigan and Illinois, but it didn’t happen. I am now completely afraid that we ALL are going to be disappointed in the nomination. Quite frankly, it is a shame that what is going to get us back “as one” is having the worst nominee out of all of them.

Well, if you want to quit now, be my guest.

I count 11 states of those remaining that should break for Santorum.

MT, SD, NE, TX, LA, AR, KY, WV, IN, WI, and PA.

11+10+2 = 23 meaning he’d need another 2 elsewhere. OR is one.

This isn’t over by a longshot.

I remember posting on FR about this time in 2008 that a McCain yard sign would never cast its shadow on my front lawn. I wasn’t going to sit out in November, but I certainly wasn’t going to lift a finger for him or show my support in any way. That changed with one helluva fantastic VP pick. Being a big fan of Palin long before he chose her, I was doing cartwheels when he picked her. I was immediately trying to find where I could get McCain/Palin signs, buttons and bumper stickers. And I was donating that very night.

Who I wonder could be Romney’s Palin? He better start giving that some deep thought.

The only question on the table now is who will be the VP nominee?

Krauthammer just said on BOR that it's going to be Rubio. Another possibility is Gov. Susanna Martinez of NM. Female, Hispanic.

Excuse me, but why should Newt exit? He cleared the field, leaving it all to Santorum. Santorum campaigned his heart out and just got his clock cleaned. Obviously, it’s time for Santorum to exit, and let Newt have a clear field in Louisiana.

I had said that I wouldn't vote for Romney in the general election should he become the GOP nominee, but I'm not sure any more. I'm supremely disappointed that Newt didn't do better...he was my first choice; Santorum was my second choice. I just don't think I have it in me to sit out this election and simply give the win to Obama by not voting. This is a decision everybody must make; I think I'm going to end up voting for Romney if he does indeed win the GOP primary. The only thing that might make this decision a little easier to swallow is if he picks a strong VP choice.

We are in the situation that we are in because of attitudes like that. The Republican establishment thumbs their nose in our faces because they say "You don't have anywhere else to go." So they feel confident with putting forward increasingly more liberal candidates without fear of any conservative backlash.

Sure, Romney is more conservative than Obama in most ways, but Harry Truman and John Kennedy are more conservative than Romney. If we keep encouraging the liberal Republican establishment by voting for the establishment choice, then eventually our choice will be between two candidates even more liberal than Obama. At some point this acquiescing to the liberal Republican steamroller has to stop.

The greatest enemies of social conservatives are liberal Republicans. In Roe v. Wade, 7 of the 9 Supreme Court justices were appointed by Republican Presidents. In Lawrence v. Texas, 5 of the 9 justices were appointed by Republican Presidents.

It is scarcely mentioned in the mainstream media, but people with conservative religious beliefs are already being fined, fired, not allowed to graduate from college, and even jailed simply because of their faithfulness to those conservative religious beliefs. Perhaps those willing to always vote for the Republican establishment's choice will not face those problems, because they will probably not have the courage to stand firm for their beliefs. But a good many of us have more reason for concern.

Regardless of the odds, regardless of the outcome, some of us will continue to speak from the public square, from the corners of the crowd, from the recesses of society, from prison. Our voices will echo from the grave.

Voting for Romney is not the answer. It only postpones the inevitable.

I don’t think Romney needs Rubio to win FL. He does not connect with blue-collar voters and those earning less than $100k. He needs to win some crucial rust-belt states. I think he’ll be making a huge mistake if he does not bring in Santorum. Reagan brought in Bush (who mocked Reagan’s policies as “vodoo-economics”) and I can’t see how Romney can drop Santorum and unite both wings of the party.

I agree!

A solid Conservative VP choice could be Romney's political salvation. Also, choosing a strong conservative could prove to be a positive influence on him.

I'm scared to death of Obama winning a second term. It's this fear that's changing my mind about voting for Romney. Who knows, maybe some type of miracle will happen...?

Good post,if we get a Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio it should wake up the spoiled brats i didn't get my way basers and bring them back to reality.

Anyone who consciously compares Romney to the Dear Marxist leader is way out there in duhhhh... land as far as I am concerned.

Sure Romney is a rino, sure he was no one's first or even second choice here but to put him even in the same world with zero is insane.I guess sometimes reality is a hard slap in the face.

You just have to deal with it or go back in the corner and suck on your thumb some more.

I am now completely afraid that we ALL are going to be disappointed in the nomination.

Can you tell me what you think of these 2 things: Newt going all the way to the convention, which Newt has said he will do. I don't think I've heard Santorum say that, he may have.

and 2) Newt and Santorum forming some sort of alliance. Would that be at all effective against Romney?

JC is not about States. It is about the delegates those states have.

Okay lets assume Santorun wins all 11 states and gets ALL delegates. Which is impossible.

You would have it MT=26, SD=28, NE=35, TX=155, LA=46, AR=36, KY=45, WV=31, IN=46, WI=42, PA=72. That is 562 delegates add to that Santorum current delegates of 236. This will give Santorum 798. He will still need to find 346 additional delegates somewhere.

I think Santorum has said he would take it to the convention. I think it might be too late to form an alliance. So many states that are left are liberal “Illinois” types. CNN (I know they stink most of the time) but they did a map and Romney has 3 ways to win this thing and they all take into consideration Newt staying in, Newt getting out, Santorum getting out, all three staying in and each time Romney gets 1140 before the convention. It was depressing.

Truth is elections are not won in a vaccuum.

Romeny has been running for years now.

He has all the money in the world,lots of organization and does not suffer from all the problems that the other two candidates have as far as running a campaign goes.

It's hardly a surprise that the guy with all the money,the willingness to go negative forever,and do most of the right things won.

You could have replaced Romney with anyone of a dozen or so other pubbies and the result would have been the same. Now our choice is to keep whining or get behind the nominee in order to try and salvage what's left of the country. Not for us but for our kids.

This is a commanding win for Romney no matter how you look at it. It’s over. The fat lady is about to sing. Santorum could have stopped Romney either in MI (Romney’s home state where he won by a squeaker of 3%) or in OH (where Romney won by a hair of under 1%) if only Gingrich had done the honorable thing and withdrawn after Santorum’s stunning trifecta win. But cheered on by the “Go Newt” crowd, he chose to stubbornly stay and now here’s the result.

The only republican nominee to get 20+ states and fail to win, is Reagan, and he took it to the convention.

There is no sense in quitting now, especially not with Texas, and so many Santorum states still out there.

I'm a conservative not a Republican. I will never for Romney for two primary reasons the military and the Supreme Court.

There is going to be alot of pressure for deep cuts in the military in coming years in spite of the fact that we are a nation at war. Romney in my opinion is likely to make massive cuts, because he will have the cover of making cuts no democrat can, he will have the dim and Rino’s in congress on his side.

Secondly if Romney is elected the oldest conservative justices (Scalia and Kennedy) are likely to retire. They would never retire if Obama was still in office. Romney will undoubtedly appoint much more liberal justices than either Scalia or Kennedy shifting the balance from conservative to liberal.

I don't buy the ABO strategy. Its real meaning is anybody but a conservative. Four or potentially eight years of a liberal Romney will inflict more damage on the conservative movement than four years of Obama ever could as O tends to unite conservatives and focus their attention on what is happening to the country. Romney is a disaster and I find it beyond belief that any conservative would vote for him under any circumstances.

I'm not trying to speak out both sides of my mouth, but I agree with your well thought out post. I realize others will NOT vote for Romney...and I completely understand. It makes me sick that we're having to make this decision to vote for a RINO. I'm simply attempting to deal with the possible reality that we might be facing. My first choice was Newt; my second choice was Santorum. Sometimes in life we must choose the lesser of two evils. This (at least for me) is one of those times.

With Romney, at least we have a chance at getting our country back; with Obama, our fate is sealed. Again, I'm preparing myself to deal with the potential “reality.” I hope I'm wrong. Maybe by some chance (miracle) Santorum may win.

Louisiana delegates are proportional. 46 delegates which will be split.
KY loves their horses, gambling and whiskey. Not sure how they will vote. Eastern KY should be more conservative but not as populated.
Newt tried to unite the party in the beginning but Romney spent mega millions smearing him in Iowa and it hurt. The election is being bought ...sad times in America.
ALSO! the National GOP should be hung out to try with the way this election has been orchestrated. Several state leaders marched in lockstep with the GOP E! Fla was rigged.

That’s the thing about Mitt’s “scorched earth” campaign strategy. Gingrich & Santorum supporters have one thing in common - they’ve been burned too badly to ever even consider voting for Mitt.

A fears back, I use to think that Romney would be a lesser evil than John McCain. Then I saw the dirty tricks he and his Mittwits used against Fred Thompson. That really opened my eyes.

Many conservatives will stay home this time, or vote 3rd party or write in Sarah Palin’s name.

-—”Soc cons really messed this one up. Rick is so weak now, he cannot stop”-—

It’s Huckabee bullheadedly plowing ahead of Thompson by sheer belief in his own holiness all over again. The story always starts out the same: Conservatives get a credible alternative to the Establishment front-runner, and he starts getting attacked.

Then the SoCon who stayed under the radar (Huckabee then, Santorum now) becomes everyone’s plan B, because the guy who could have won (Thompson, Gingrich) was unloaded upon by the GOP-E money machine. Then the smug supporters of the upstart underdog all thump their chest and say “NO.....YOUR GUY SHOULD DROP OUT!!”

Then the vote is already split, the credible candidate becomes non-credible because of vote-splitting, and the upstart winds-up in second place because folks trying to beat the Establishment liberal switch to plan B because the smug voters of the only holy candidate make it loudly clear that they’re going to support the holy upstart candidate even if it means the Liberals win.

It JUST KEEPS HAPPENING.

In reality, what needed to happen was for Santorum to drop out early, when it became apparent that there was someone who could lead Romney in the polls for a long time, and when it was clear he had a friggin’ LITANY of ballot and delegate issues. Even if it was not Newt at the time (heck, replace Newt with Perry), Conservatives should have united around a single candidate with a full organization and little to no ballot and delegate issues, and there SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A PLAN B. Conservative should have been forced to STAY united, learn to DEFEND their candidate rather than defect because the rich, Establishment Liberal was able to smear the credible Conservative with overwhelming cash.

If there had been no Santorum, Newt would be leading right now. He would be leading because we would have been united against Romney from day one, and there would have been no defections based on the fact that - by simply running under the radar - someone else rises because they haven’t been unloaded on.

We CANNOT keep doing this. We CANNOT keep Santoruming and Huckabeeing ourselves based on some sick notion of the holiness of a politician. We cannot keep some broke one-percenter in the race because they were able to show well in Iowa after living there for two years and facing almost no attacks because of their low polling. We cannot keep rewarding these guys for throwing Hail Mary passes when we have a chance to defeat the Liberals. No more “shoestring” campaigns, no more one-percenters who surge in time to do well in Iowa, no more long-shot dreams based on the notion that some candidate is the mostest Christianest candidate of them all.

No more Huckabees, no more Santorums. No more long-shots who surge in Iowa. Rule them out before they ruin another Primary season. Santorum was never going to get 1144 delegates - it was NEVER going to happen. The fact that people bull-headedly refused to waver from him KILLED us - and then they turned around and taunted Newt and Perry voters for voting for Santorum in desperation, citing the vote count as if nobody knows what was actually happening.

No more Santorums, no more Huckabees. No more long shots, period.
