Skip to comments.Live Thread: GOP Primary election results (WI, MD, DC)
Posted on 04/03/2012 5:24:56 PM PDT by newzjunkey
Fox News & CNN are projecting Romney wins MD in their banners.
Santorum wasn't on the DC ballot.
Wisconsin polls close at 8pm CDT/9pm EDT.
When you institute universal suffrage, anything is possible.
A West /Gingrich ticket would keep the cultists out of the WH at least, and has a great shot at taking it all.
The GOP is done if they push this douchebag MYTH ROMNEY as the nominee.
No way, no how.
If Santorum had dropped after South Carolina, Romney would have clinched by now.
So what you are saying is the Karl Rove and Ann Coulter and Matt Drudge and FOX NEWS will more than likely be very happy campers later tonight, correct?
I haven’t voted for anybody yet, but it looks like if Newt’s 6% would have voted for Rick, he would have won WI. Now we have Rombama.
Pray for America
What BS! Newt went down in flames all on his own. Rick surfaced just when we thought we were stuck with Romney and gave us another chance.
Don't know what your game is but stop trying to blame people for deserting Newt, he deserted us.
It happened in MI too; our little Republican primary voters will be our end.
The person "conservative98" you are talking has all the incontrovertible characteristics of a "suddenly sign up" troll, and joined Free Republic only in the last few weeks (probably for this primary season) to be a disrupter, and nothing else. Take it/them with a grain of salt.
“If Santorum had dropped after South Carolina, Romney would have clinched by now.”
This Primary contest was over the night the votes in Florida were counted.
The rest of this has just been media kabuki for the stupid.
GO RICK! Yes, he is hitting a homerun right now!
Yep. That’s how it works. Hope he is happy with himself.
Never thought I'd want to leave this country but with Obama at the helm I could do so easily...but where? Too much unrest worldwide. But we're already seeing wealthy people planning just that.
Will you be casting your ballot in November, from Tokyo?
Suppose you tell me who you DO support then, you big DOPE? Thank you in advance,
Normally that's good advice but I fear that these 'trolls' are beating down the good guys. Even on FR it seems particpation is down and I think it's because of these people who continually spout negative crap.
Of course I can't fight the world, I should probably chilax :-)
You need to go back to the Romney sites......Romney is NOT our guy here....not even close pal!
Heck. WHAT November elections? (after Obama orders martial law and suspension of both the Congress and the Supreme Court). Just kidding. (Kind of).
All donations we sent to Santorum are well spent.
I don't know what happens from here, but I know he has fought and is fighting the good fight.
Maybe our country is too far lost....too far gone...to ever have a conservative again.....May God have mercy.
I will not vote for Romney.....
I really do wish they would stop these stupid open primaries.
Clean sweep by Romney in all of today's primaries.
Provide the specific, clear evidence (I am not going on your word only, sorry), and then you will get the apology from me. Otherwise, bug off, anti-Santorum troll.
You might as well put me on alert.. I support Mitt over St Rick.. The guy who lost his Senate seat in 06 by 18 points..

Romney’s speech “Pattonesque”? LMAO!! That was one of the WORST speeches I’ve ever heard! It was canned and phony. It’s so painfully obvious Romney has no deep feelings about this country nor any idea of what conservatism is. So he stands up there and phones in some piece of claptrap some kid wrote for him. He actually said that FDR and LBJ did great things! And what was that “We have a country where we want dreamers to dream.” LOL, what??
My husband said it was like watching a wooden, not very good actor playing the role of a candidate. God help us if Wooden Willard is the nominee.
I'm serious, is that you Karl? It took me a while to figure it out but you're right there for Romney at every turn. Yep, I'm pretty sure you're a dyed-in-the-wool Romnian.
LOL, Romney site's? What is that? Mitt doesn't generate enough enthusiasm to have any site dedicated to him. I've still not actually found a voter who is excited to vote for Mitt Romney. He is going to be the nominee though. This is what happens when conservatives don't put up a compelling alternative most of us can agree on. I wished it would have been Newt, but too many social conservatives wanted to get behind another dead end candidate like Pat Robertson and Mike Huckabee. Santorum simply isn't a serious alternative and never really had a chance. He only survived this long because no one paid any attention to him for the first several months.

Does not take a genius to figure out that, and where many of them were coming from from the very beginning. Particularly these new sign ups saying "HEY! GREAT SPEECH BY ROMNEY JUST NOW! I mean, gag me with a spoon for cryin out loud.
What has Rick done in the Senate that showed him to be a conservative??
I doubt Rick thanks YOU for your contribution to defeating him tonight, if indeed he doesnt win.
How does it feel, katiedidit1....to know you have such power to bring a good man down...
....words matter....and your words and those of your crowd were hurtful and cruel
“Go, Mitt, Go”, huh?
So you support an abortion-loving, homosexual-pandering liberal cult member. You should be proud of yourself. /s
He's still fighting and so should we. They're doing the same thing they've been doing since the primaries started, saying Romney's a done deal, move on now like good little sheeple.
I for one won't just give up because they say so. We can still stop Romney and should for the sake of the country.
After witnessing what they've done I will not longer be a Republican.
They don't speak for me.....listen to me....or care about me.
Its these people posing as only anti Santorum, or pro-Newt, but really are for Romney and have been since day one, but could not do so openly (dont ask, dont tell) because they knew the stated philosophy and moral underpinnings of Free Republic from the get-go with respect to MITT ROMNEY.
After April and because there are so many WTA and closed primaries that will favor Romney, the momentum will be enough for the win. It is not looking like an open convention after all.
But we will still see more of Newt, he will be a big part of the convention, and I also believe he will be a part of the new administration after we beat Obama.
Thank God I live in NY, where my non-vote for Romney in November won’t cause any damage.
One other thought. FedsStealingOurCountryFromUs is annoying, but at least he has enough self-respect to admit he likes romney, unlike others, who I assume, are embarrassed to admit romney is their candidate. I would be embarrassed too if I supported romney.
You have a very selective memory if you can’t recall the reams of anti-Gingrich posts that filled this place, over and over, a lot of them filthy, almost all of them lies. Did that depress Free Republic? I have never encountered such virulence and stupidity... but all that is okay with Santorum supporters like you.
Ignoring them didn't help and neither did trying to turn the conversation. They're on a mission.
This is what happens when 5 conservatives no-one-can-quite-entirely-agree-upon show up at the party after the compelling alternative decides to stay home and cash the $2,000,000 check life has written her.
I really don’t care about his Religion..
She's challenging Greta that Harry Reid is not willing to put a budget on the Senate floor. She's saying that she totally expects Reid to put a budget on the floor. She's challenging Greta's position that Reid is stalling in the Senate.
This is nuts!
Everybody knows that Reid already said that he deems a budget to have been passed and will not take one up.
Greta kept taking a step back by telling Wasserman-Schultz that she's in the House and can't speak for the Senate, but Greta let her off the hook on her role as Chair of the DNC. From that position, Wasserman-Schultz should be held to explain why the Democrats won't put a budget on the table for discussion.
Greta is saying that it is no longer acceptable to just have a GOP/Ryan plan as the only budget on the table, in order for the process to continue.
Wasserman-Schultz made the Democrats look very weak on this.
Yep. Exactly. It ain’t over. We can deny MITTSER the numbers, and if not, we can create HOLY CONSERVATIVE HELL at the RINOFEST PARTY CORONATION IN TAMPA through everything from planks/platform, rules committee, nominating speeches, you name it. That’s what I say we do rather than lay down and get screwed John McCain 2008 style. The minute we take the pressure off them (GOP-e/MSM/RINO Central joined at the hip), we have marginalized ourselves. They could not give two belches for the grassroots conservative Reagan faction of the GOP.
I think that would make a tremendous yard sign this coming October.
Two events in this primary are what gave us Romney. Just two.
First, all of the Palin supporters refused to believe that she wouldn’t run, despite the fact that she did nothing to prepare for it (no state organizations, no signatures to get on ballots). And that resulted in a large number of conservatives not even bothering to look at the declared candidates. Furthermore, that delayed any chance of us gelling behind a declared candidate to stop Romney. So, by the time the deluded fools finally figured it out, they ended up panicking and jumping from candidate to candidate without really looking them over.
And secondly, our marvelous social conservatives completely *FORGOT ALL ABOUT HOW THE TEA PARTY WON IN 2010*. They *HAD* to go and look for the next Pope of America, instead of the next President. Which, mind you, was *NOT* the formula that got us the overwhelming victory in 2010. That came from focusing on our out-of-control debt and spending, our lack of jobs, and how the government has become an overwhelming behemoth controlling every aspect of our lives.
But *NOOOOO*, we couldn’t rally around *THAT*!!! Why, that *WORKS*!!! That *WON*!!!
We needed a POPE!!!
And now we all going to suffer because of this.
My level of disgust at how so many forgot that formula for success so quickly... knows no bounds.
I think so.. I’ll be surprised if Newt is in the race at this point. I would like to know what has Santorum done in the Senate that was considered Conservative??
Ever? Even in November if he wins the GOP nomination?
