Obama KNOWS Romney cant win!

President Obama offered his likely Republican opponent Mitt Romney “good luck” for Super Tuesday.

Asked at a news conference if he’d like to respond to Romney’s comments calling Obama the “most feckless president since Carter,” Obama said: “Good luck tonight.”

After the quip got laughs from the press gallery, Obama smiled and said, “No, really. Really.”

THE _RESIDENT GETS IT!!!! the Republican establishment is too stupid to get it.

"NH is what he is aiming to get to 270."

Don't need NH.

2008 + IN, NC, FL, NV, VA, OH == 271EV.

It's Bobo that doesn't have a path to victory. That's why they've publically admitted they are playing off Kerry's map. To lose. They know the electoral equation is as direct as I've just presented.

After he picked Palin as his running mate, I voted for the sob. But that being said, McCain never intended to try to win. The Republican Party never intended for Mc Cain to win. He was picked to lose against obama simply becausr, "He has paid his dues", and "it is his turn". McCain picking Sarh Palin as his running mate was not originated as a brilliant move. He intended to pick a hay seed nobody that no one had ever heard about. That backfired so they had to sabatoge and backstab her at every opportunity.

Mitt is now the new McCain. the difference is this time I have seen through their scheme. Romney has been ordained by the Republican Party to lose to obama. The two that could have beaten obama were elininated very early and early. The remaining are only to pacificy the sheep and mark time until Romney can be officially crowned[the convention].

This chart tells you nearly everything you need to know about why Romney wins or loses.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/behind-the-numbers/post/illinois-gop-voters-how-they-compare/2012/03/20/gIQAZFLCQS_blog.html

Romney loses every time the percent of evangelicals exceeds 50% of voters.

I would guess the number of romneybots at this site are rather low since this is a conservative site. Those who do support romney would naturally attack other candidates. Or would you expect a romney supporter to say good things about santorum? I understand the desire to lash out. I've said all along that romney is the nominee unless conservatives unite and it never happened so now were stuck with this turd.

The truth is that santorum, Gingrich and their supporters split the conservative vote and helped romney win. Conservatives as a group “own” this defeat.

That’s really not fair to say that and stop assuming and accusing please. Past posts speak for themselves. I haven’t endlessly bashed Santorum, but I will admit I don’t like him because he voted to raise the debt ceiling and I think he’s an arrogant jerk just like Mittens who is o bama lite.

I wanted Sarah, she was my first choice. Then I jumped on the Cain train but that fizzled out. Newt was my third choice and is who I voted for in my primary.

I decided to not bash any of the candidates anymore on FR because I didn’t feel like getting into it and I refuse to help the DNC, Obots and Axelrod with their talking points, because in the end, I will vote for whoever has an R beside their name because none of them are worse than the Marxist in Chief.

I detested John McCain, I held my nose and voted for him because of Sarah. I think Hussein stole the election with illegal campaign donations and massive voter fraud. A write in vote or not voting may make people feel better but it’s still the same as a vote for the Kenyan any way you look at it.

If anyone thinks the first term was bad.. the executive orders, the czars, the spending, the takeover of private industries, the bailouts, the bogus stimulus, the unemployment rate, the deficit, the payoffs and kickbacks, the mob tactics, the constant vacations on our tax dollars, YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ COMPARED TO A 2ND TERM FOR BARRY HUSSEIN SOETORO OBAMA AND HIS FAT A$$ WOOKIE WIFE.

I guess I could sit home, not vote and then sit here and b*tch for the next 4 years as Hussein destroys this country, changes the supreme court for decades and wonder if we can ever turn it back in my lifetime. I choose to not do that. I’m not convinced Mittens has secured the nomination, things happen, it’s a long way to Nov. however, I will vote in NOV. and I will be voting for Mr. or Mrs. Anyonebut Thekenyan.

"What's that?? Newt + Santorum is less than Romney's take? But, but ... Newt's fault!" - Rick's crybabies

Even with 100% of Newt voters going to their sainted salesman, Rick'd lose to Romney 47-43.

Polling in several states over the past month showed--in his best case--Santorum takes just 57% of Newt supporters. If he had 6 in 10 of Newt votes in Illinois, Rick gets to 40% and Romney passes 50%.

In some states that matters. For example, five Super Tuesday states (ID, OH, OK, VT, VA) had rules were a candidate exceeding 50% won all the delegates. The runners up get nothing.

The fastest way for Romney to sew this up is for Newt (or any of the others) to leave the race.

Santorum "supporters" demanding Newt exit with full knowledge of the fallout outlined above are really trolls for the establishment.

I haven’t bashed Santorum much at all, feel free to check my past posts. I don’t believe he is fiscally conservative and I don’t think he stands a chance in hell of getting any of the independent vote or of beating the Kenyan. I want Soetoro OUT!!!!!!!

I think it’s very likely Romney would lose NC,NV,VA,OH and, quite likely, FL, even with Rubio on a ticket. In fact, it’s quite possible he would lose IN, too. He’s no stronger a candidate than McCain, even in these perilous times.

So, in real terms, you're saying that you will allow Barack Obama (Alinskyite/Marxist/socialist/redistributionist/disregarder of the Constitution of the United States/etc.) to be re-elected. You're saying that he's a better choice for this nation than, comparatively speaking, a mere RINO?

If so, I wonder if, on election day, Rick Santorum would agree? I wonder if Newt Gingrich would agree? I wonder if Sarah Palin would agree? I wonder if Fred Thompson would agree? Herman Cain? If you can, name a conservative leader who thinks that Barack Obama is the better of the two. Please.

So, what happens here on FR if Romney wins does win and becomes the nominee? Will it come an O bama supporting forum? If that happens, I can assure you there won’t be many left on FR. Take that to the bank.

Our best hope is that something happens and Romney implodes and we get real conservative candidate.

It will be interesting to see how many of us who pledge unshakable opposition to Romney will end up voting for him after he “wins” the nomination.
______________________________________
IF he wins, and I’m not convinced he has sealed the deal yet, do you seriously expect people to vote for the Marxist Barry Hussein? Sorry pal, NOT DOING IT!!!! If that is the case and FR becomes O central, I can assure you I won’t be here to argue anything. When FR supports Hussein it’s just another Kos or DU.

Obviously, it would not become an Obama supporting forum. Nor would it be a Romney supporting forum.

There will be other candidates and write-in possibilities.

And there is always the Constitution Party, depending on whom they nominate.

Post #93 bears repeating...

“Your biggest enemies are totalitarian rat bastard psychopaths like Cass Sunstein, John Holdren, and Obama and Co, who will literally kill you if they get a chance. I don’t mean politically. I mean they intend to kill you, and your family. They have said as much off the record.

Whining about Romney’s faux conservatism is a high class problem compared to physical survival.”

Wright’s Church, hanging around with Bill Ayres and using Tony Reszcko as a financial advisor weren’t troubling to gap-tooth Dave....

The reason I am thinking Martinez is that Romney will want to run a “Western Strategy”. Also, she is much more palatable to the GOP-E’s and does not have any major scandal hanging over her (unlike Rubio).

If Romney wins the nomination, his running-mate will probably someone who has been a congressman, since that helped many republican nominees. The last four GOP VP’s were congressmen. They were Dick Cheney, Dan Quayle, George H.W. Bush, and Gerald Ford. I hope that Romney would choose Gov. Butch Otter, of Idaho. He was a congressman, before he was a governor, and he’s conservative.

The third choice is to vote for neither socialist and focus on more viable contests, such as unseating Crybaby Boehner and retaking the Senate.

If Romney wins the nomination, the real question in 2012 will be whether the letter R can convince you to vote for a progressive (by his own admission) socialist who advocates the same positions as Barack Obama when he’s not busy being “severely conservative.”

Now which group was going to make FR a bastion of liberalism? The ones who refuse to throw their beliefs under the bus?

Come on. Be honest. You don’t believe that Santorum bears any responsibility in this?

Denial and dishonesty are part-and-parcel of Santorum's presidential campaign if not his political career; it's not surprising it would be a theme with his activists as well.

Those RINO votes? He "took one for the team." His 18-point loss? Tough year for Republicans and Bush's fault. Squandering double-digit leads in MI and OH? Newt's fault. War on porn? Press's fault. He's got clean hands on healthcare ... Just ignore the '92 & '94 support for individual health insurance mandates, Romney & Specter endorsements...

His "I, I, I, me, me, me" chest-puffing is bizarrely juxtaposed with his cries of powerlessness, victimhood and lack of responsibility. Sorry Santorum, but I've gotten more than enough of that from Obama.
