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.
By virtue of these Romney wins (and probable eventual Republican nomination), the GOP is giving Obama his second term on a silver platter. Everyone I talk to sees it the same way. Romney is NOT anyone's first choice and people are disillusioned with the apparent John McCaining of conservatives for the second time in a row. This is republican party suicide and everyone can see it except the elites who are forcing this candidate down our throats. May God help America out of this potential disaster.
Not a surprise.
In further Maryland humiliation, Our Governor, Lil’Marty, showed up today on The Ed Show, trashing the Ryan budget.
He thinks he is the white Obama - complete with the arrogance.
Baramitt Obamaromney - that’s the ballot in November.
But, but, but not voting for Mitt is like voting for Obama. How many times have you heard that?
(I'm not voting for the "RINO sonofabitch" either)
Why do I get the feeling that's what you wanted all along. So what's your real name, Rove?
I voted for Newt also.
I don’t trust Romney and I despise Santorum.
The primary system needs a dramatic overhaul, but I believe we are out of time.
Maryland has a closed primary. So, the “against Obama” vote would be for who? I was unaware that Obama faces any kind of competition here.
Trivia question: Barry Goldwater actually managed to get 14.5% of the DC vote in 1964. Who was the last Republican presidential candidate to exceed this total? Who was the last to crack 10%?
Get ready for him and Andrew Cuomo to duke it out in 2016. That is, if Obama hasn’t declared himself a dictator by then.
I don’t give a damn what you think. The problem with your side is, you were warned that supporting Santorum would guarantee a Romney win. Well, guess what?..............We all lose.
Obama - Romney: there is little to no difference in the evil they will do. Thankfully, if McRomney needs my vote here in Tennessee, he has already lost. I will just have to vote in the House and Senate and hope they can check Obama, as they would not oppose a president of the same party.
It’s high time for a third party, but the GOP talking heads in the news media will do their darndest to keep party-line Republicans in line with their usual talking points and scare tactics.
“Let’s change the GOP from within!”
Riiight. It’s not like the establishment holds the reins of power or anything.
“But a third party will never win!”
Romney will never win, either, but we’re supposed to vote for him.
“But a third party will split the vote!”
Good! It’s time for the Republicans to go the way of the Whigs. What did caving to the establishment get us in ‘08? What did it get us in ‘12? Will 2016 be any different?
IN, NC, WV are all on May 8th. If Rick could take his home state it might be worth it to hang in til the 8th. Could recapture momentum.
The big secret is that it’s not really over and Romney’s not yet the nominee.
Then it is time for Romney to get out of the race. He can’t win.
ABO is what its always been about....we just had a bunch of anybodies
As a social conservative, I wont vote for Obama or Romney in November. If Rick (or Newt) doesnt win the nomination, I will be looking at third party this year, and Santorum 2016 (or Pence 2016; or whatever good conservative runs 2016)."
I've been wanting to ask this, and waiting for such a straightforward genial and non-acerbic show of support for Santorum such as yours...what if, at the GOP convention, Santorum comes out and endorses Mittens again? Much in the way of what he told Laura Ingraham in 2008? Would that change your mind about November?
"Santorum told Ingraham that Romney is "a guy who has gone through that pressure cooker, who has developed a passion, who understands why he's a conservative and understands the issues, how they weave together."
Santorum added that conservatives are "about traditional values and a traditional way of American life" and that Mitt Romney "understands that, it's not just in his head anymore, it's in his heart."
This year Santorum, a presidential candidate and Romney rival, has said his 2008 endorsement was motivated more by politics than conservative beliefs.
"I made, I hate to say it, a calculated political decision that Romney was the stronger horse and had a better chance to win Super Tuesday with the resources he had," Santorum said. "I like him. The time I spent with him, he was a gentleman. He's very sincere."
