  • March 6 VA Republican Presidential Primary, your 4 voting options

    02/27/2012 12:41:30 PM PST · by Gopher Broke · 22 replies
    On March 6th, the Republican Party of Virginia will be holding its Presidential Primary at your local polling precincts. Polls open just like regular voting times, 6am to 7pm. You have 4 choices: Vote for Romney, vote for Paul, stay home/don't vote or show up and do an "undervote". Please do go to the polls and vote, if possible. More votes at the poll show more Republican strength. An undervote allows you to vote (in person or absentee) by showing up, pressing the VOTE button without choosing either candidate. Some might consider it a "protest vote" or a "blank" vote,...
  • In Breitbart’s Last Column, Did He Endorse Newt Gingrich?

    03/05/2012 9:46:59 AM PST · by 2ndDivisionVet · 34 replies
    Deceased conservative media icon Andrew Breitbart’s posthumously released article outlines a leftist play heralding radical Saul Alinsky that Obama participated in. But for as much as the crux of the article is centered on Barack Obama’s affiliation with Alinsky-styled radicalism, does he also endorse Newt Gingrich at its conclusion?When Andrew Breitbart announced at CPAC this year that he would be vetting Obama with a new set of tapes that would confirm his radical roots, he planted an eagerness in the conservative movement that currently waits with bated breath to see if these videos live up to the hype that Breitbart...

    This is NOT intended to be only a Rick Santorum thread. GOP conservatives need to work together to prevail over Mitt Romney, who is the lame GOP-e candidate. Conservatives need to cinch / clinch the GOP nomination ASAP! For the final decision of who should be the actual 2012 GOP nominee, this should be an end-of-August national convention decision, and NOT a Spring primary decision. Conservatives and the GOP as a whole need the extra time to make the best final decision about the nominee. Several weeks before the Iowa caucus, there was all of this discussion of having one...

    Too Little, Too Late for Rush Limbaugh? Republican Allies and Advertisers Continue To Desert Host Despite Apology Conservative radio host slammed Georgetown University's Sandra Fluke Seven advertisers responded by dropping their ads on his show By MEGHAN KENEALLY 5th March 2012 Newt Gingrich was the latest Republican presidential candidate to distance himself from the controversial radio commentator Rush Limbaugh following his tirade against a law student that he deemed a 'slut'. Appearing on a Sunday morning news program, Mr Gingrich said that it was 'silly' to suggest that Mr Limbaugh speaks on behalf of the entire Republican party, and that...

    Hot Air ^ | March 4, 2012 | Howard Portnoy
    The redoubtable media watchdog Media Matters has thrown a red challenge flag over what it deems a “manufactured attack” by Politico on Obama Energy Secretary Steven Chu. At issue is whether Chu told the House Appropriations Committee—as Politico initially reported—that the administration’s goal was not to lower the price of fuel oil but to decrease America’s dependency on it. Luckily, replay footage of the relevant exchange between Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-MS) and Chu is available for review (cue 2:56). I have now watched the clip several times and am of a mind that Politico was too hasty in offering a...

    NewsCore) - President Barack Obama's re-election campaign strategist David Axelrod hit back Sunday at Newt Gingrich's ongoing criticism of the president for a rash of violence in Afghanistan, calling the Republican candidate's comments "irresponsible." Six US troops were killed in three separate incidents after the burning of Korans at a US airbase in Afghanistan late last month sparked violent protests across the war-torn country. Both Obama and the top US commander in Afghanistan, Marine Gen. John R. Allen, apologized for the unintentional insult in an effort to calm the hostility. In campaign appearances since the incident, former House speaker Newt...

    The Examiner ^ | March 4th, 2012 | Joel Gehrke
    Rick Santorum indicated that Newt Gingrich should drop out of the presidential race, arguing -- as Gingrich did during his surge -- that splitting the "anti-Romney" vote helped Mitt Romney win the Michigan primary and Washington caucuses and contributes to his overall success so far. "It's always harder when you've got to conservative running in the race as we have seen in Washington and we've seen in other states," Santorum said on Fox News Sunday. "We have the anti-Romney vote, if you will. Both Gingrich and I are slugging away." Santorum stopped short of calling for Gingrich to exit the...

    This 2-week old 3-minute ad from the super-PAC supporting Newt, Winning Our Future, is a great compliment to his half-hour ad on energy. Because 3 minutes is a somewhat unusual duration, I'm not sure if this ad is currently or will be playing anywhere on TV, or if it was just released on the Internet to create buzz.

    Let’s be clear about this from the start: On Tuesday, I’ll vote for Newt Gingrich to be the GOP’s presidential nominee. Now for the explanation. In recent days, I mentally drafted one piece endorsing him, one backing Mitt Romney, and a third picking Rick Santorum. (Sorry, Ron Paul fans.) In other words, like millions of other Americans, I’ve had a hard time reaching a decision. ......[SNIP]...... Gingrich has a record of changing Washington. Completely? No. But then, completely changing Washington is a big job. And Gingrich led Congress to each success to which Santorum can also lay a claim: balanced...

    Newt Gingrich has turned his sights on Rick Santorum in a new robocall going out to Oklahoma and Tennessee voters, bashing the former Pennsylvania senator as having “cozied up to the labor union bosses.” The ad will reach 150,000 voters in each of the states, according to ABC News. “On the campaign trail, Rick Santorum talks a good game about his blue-collar roots, and about being for the average family,” a female narrator says. “But here’s the record Rick Santorum doesn’t want you to know about: As a senator from Pennsylvania, Santorum cozied up to the labor union bosses, and...

    Santorum, Gingrich Target Obama at GOP Dinner in Ohio By Seema Mehta March 3, 2012 Bowling Green, Ohio— Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich courted GOP activists at a party dinner Saturday night, each painting a dire picture of America's straits, arguing that the nation's very soul is at stake in this upcoming election and saying that they were the candidate best suited to take on President Obama. Santorum, who delivered a fiery speech about the nation's heritage, clearly received the warmer reaction, with the hundreds of GOP voters gathered in a university student union leaping to their feet four times...

(I know, it's a Democratic firm, but I doubt that bias expresses itself when it's a Republican v. Republican race.) According to the tweets, Newt is not doing great in Ohio, polling at around 15%. However: 1) Newt's moving up to challenge Santorum in Tennessee: "Surprise of the day- Tennessee looking much more competitive. Santorum still up but Mitt and Newt within about 5-7 pts" 2) PPP confirms Newt's big lead in Georgia, and also finds that Santorum is fading to 3rd place in that...

    The Dayton Daily News ^ | March 3, 2012 | Jessica Wehrman, Washington Bureau
    WASHINGTON — As the Ohio Republican presidential primary enters its final days, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich can make a legitimate claim that he’s already providing a boost to the state’s wobbly economy. Gingrich spent more than $5 million using Ohio vendors for his presidential campaign in the past four months alone — far more than any of the other three GOP contenders. He spent the bulk of that money with two companies — Akron-based InfoCision and Delaware-based Strategic Media Placement Inc. — an affiliate of the Strategy Group for Media. In all, he spent $2.9 million with the former...
