FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum; former Govs. Haley Barbour, R-Miss., and Howard Dean, D-Vt.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Santorum; Sen. Chuck U. Schumer, D-N.Y.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Vice President Joe Biden; Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul; Kevin Madden, adviser to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Reps. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Chris Van Hollen, D-Md.
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.; Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich.; Ryan.
Talk about dems trying to distort! Fat Candy (sure has that mob nickname about it)trying to convince Sen. Mitch McConnell that the dems have all the answers and that oil companies are fat and ruthless make to much in profits and that the obama economy is so good we can’t run against it. Mitch disagrees.Candy is sad that Mitch catches her using DNC chatting points.NOt much new here...
You speak for many on the dilemma. We have to back the GOP nominee no matter what. The hardest part of that seems to be mustering the troops. There is so much division. That used to be said of Democrats. Will Rogers: “I don’t belong to an organized political party, I’m a Democrat.” I do not see any desertion from Obama. Many on the Left are mad at him for war still going on, Gitmo still open, all drilling not stopped, some coal-fired electric plants and refineries still operating, some Christian churches still open, etc. But no defections. They are holding solid. We must also.
As I told another gentleman on another blog, do not come around me whispering words of poisonous defeatism like Wormwood in Lord of the Rings.
Romney can win this. Santorum cannot. Period.
It seems a lot of posters on the right (or who are purporting to be on the right) are more concerned that Romney loses so that they can say “I told you so.” Hence the continuing effort to depress support.
I have a lot of swing voters and democrats in my extended family. The swing voters will go to Romney but if it’s Santorum they stay home. The dem relatives will go to the polls and vote democrat even if they substitute an avocado for Obama.
You guys who think that somehow Santorum or some other perfect consrvative is going to show up are living in a fool’s paradise. Santorum is as much a waffler as Romney, even more so. And he is HATED by a good chunk of women who think his home-schooling and stand on birth control is a way to keep his wife subjugated. This is what people in the non-political world think. I am a Catholic convert, so don’t be coming at me about religion, as I wouldn’t have joined the Church if I didn’t accept her teachings. A lot of people dono’t understand it, though, and Santorum has only made the suspicion worse.
By the way, has anyone seen him photographed coming out of mass? I guess I could have missed it.
I’m thinking you’re right about Rick Perry. He entered the race right in the midst of the frenzy for Herman Cain. If he had held back until that madness had passed and until Michele Bachmann departed, he would have seemed like a savior at that point.
He would have been fought bitterly by the Party hacks though because he wanted to change Washington too much to suit them.
Oh, yes. It’s everywhere. Not just in movies but in tv series. I gave up Murphy’s Law after one-half an episode when she was defending a drug dealer and said that Rush Limbaugh was an addict. Click.
I put up with it unless it’s blatant because I love TV. But my antenna are out (is that plural or should it be antennae?) anyway, they are out but too many people let it seep into their subconscious.
I try not to find out too much about movie stars because they are all stupid and liberal with a few exceptions.
Unless they throw it in my face, I ignore it. Tom Hanks is a huge disappointment as he is a great actor.
I think (hope) that most of the people who are inflamed against George (whitey)Zimmerman would be Obama voters anyway.
But I think the wild enthusiasm that was there last time will be missing, cuz nobody has got their ‘obama money’ yet.
I still like the guy. I would like to see him run in the future or be a VP (although that is unlikely since he has bad feelings against Romney and endorsed Newt).
The thing is, he was NOT going to run and then some of those people like James Dobson and Richard Viguerie talked him into it. I actually think this might be why Palin opted out.
But he was just terrible in the early debates, and as I said, nut cases like Michelle Malkin went after him like he was the devil incarnate.
Well, we will just have to soldier on and help get Romney elected. I refuse to accept another 4 years of Obama. At least Romney likes the country and his wife isn’t embarrassing.
I think we all know the answer to that--he's the one they fear the least and they want to repeat their successful set-up and shoot-down of McCain.
Apparently McCain was shocked when his good friends in the media turned on him. I wonder how long until Mitt will be shocked the same way. We thought we were going to pick our candidate, but we didn't.
I will vote for him if I must (and even work on GOTV) but I will be gagging the whole time and I will NOT do anything for him until he's nominee!
The only hope we have is that Obama is so horrible. I don't think for a minute they don't have a devastating attack ready for him--they've had a loooonnnnng time to get it ready and they do their homework in that capacity.
I wish Cain hadn't imploded.
Losing zerocare will hurt as well. They had plans to buy almost an unlimited amount of votes through zero care.that now looks doubtful at best.
Bearing in mind the regime has declared all out war on the Catholic Church you gotta wonder how many Catholics still plan to vote for the regime?
They built him up somewhat (but not to the degree you assume) because they thought that they could manipulate us into dumping him during the primaries and leave us with someone like Newt or Santorum.
Why do you take democrats at their word? When they say “Oh, we hope the nominee is Romney!” do you think they are telling the truth? I don’t.
The fact is that ALL of these candidates have an opposition research file a mile thick, and the dems will use it. If it’s Newt, it will be his marriages, the Tiffany’s account, and global warming. If it’s Rick, it will be birth control, religious orthodoxy, home-schooling, and his taking home-schooling credits from Pennsylvania while he lived in that 3-million dollar house in Falls Church, Va.
The dems play a deep game involving counter-intuitive strategy, fake conservatives, unfounded rumors (Nikki Haley, for example). They like to yank the chains of unsuspecting conservatives. I do not know how many times during the Bush campaign the NYT would print an unsourced rumor and Freepers would accept it as fact and go ballistic.
Mitt Romney is more conservative than much of the population, but not as conservative as pepople here. Well, guess what - none of the Freepers are running for office.
One other thing, the reason the dems think they want to run against Romney is because they think he is a lightweight. They would be wrong.
If you will remember, they also expected George Bush to concede when they started all of the recount noise in Florida. They were wrong about him as well.
” By the way, has anyone seen him photographed coming out of mass? I guess I could have missed it. “
Sure - have seen pics of him IN church - being prayed over ! Lovely - so reverent +
I posted this GOOD news yeaterday:
Why Rick Santorum’s once-generous lead in Wisconsin is eroding

PraiseTheLord to PSYCHO-FREEP
The GOOD news I heard by Rick Santorum in interview on EWTN WorldOver Thursday PM is that by their calculations, he is only a hundred some points behind.
Somewhere I saw how the calculations and apportioning the delegates look in an actual real valid distribution to have them come out this way.
To see how Santorum numbers are that CLOSE to bishop willard

Here is a bit from it:
“ ... Those counts, Santorum says, are not taking into account Republican party rules, as well as the state-level meetings that actually determine how many delegates go to each candidate.
” . . . Now, the Santorum campaign is providing some numbers to flesh out the candidate’s claims. In a long conversation Wednesday evening, John Yob, the campaign’s national and state convention director, pointed out that many high-profile primaries have been little more than beauty contests,
I did not see any shows except the bit end on FNS but I noticed that Ann Coulter is on This Week and that surprised me. Did anyone see her. Is it worth going to the ABC webpage and watching it?
Did you know, and I was doing this thread even back then, that when Tony Snow was the host, many FReepers didn’t like him and called him “The Giggler”?
He was perceived as a RINO, and not with us. The thing about Fox is, they really try to be Fair and Balanced, even when the rest of the networks are not.
It was only AFTER he left FNS and then became the White House press secretary that so many here professed their admiration.
Chris Wallace does have his moments, but he is constrained the same way Tony was.
