    Mitt Romney secured a close victory in Ohio but failed to land a knockout blow against rival Rick Santorum on "Super Tuesday," raising the odds of a drawn-out battle for the Republican presidential nomination between the party's establishment and its grassroots conservatives. Romney won five of the 10 state contests on Tuesday but his margin of victory was uncomfortably slim in Ohio, the night's biggest prize. Ohio is a politically divided state sure to be hotly contested in the November 6 election between the eventual Republican nominee and President Barack Obama. Romney moved closer to the 1,144 delegates needed to...

  • Covering up a lie is complicity - Fox

    03/06/2012 8:27:56 PM PST · by publius321 · 13 replies
    Fox ignored (sat on) substantial news this week including the fact that Romney lied about his support of a national mandate and then yesterday's news of Jim Demint calling "Romneycare" an "unjust law". Both of these would have had the gravity to end the race for any other candidate, especially having been revealed the night before Super Tuesday. When will America have had ENOUGH of the ongoing deception?
  • Poll: Super Tuesday Republicans would rather buy a used car from Rick Santorum than Mitt Romney

    In the 1960 U.S. presidential election, an unaffiliated poster that featured a shifty-looking Richard Nixon snidely asked, “Would you buy a used car from this man?” U.S. voters suggested by their election of John F. Kennedy that they wouldn’t. Since then, the casual use of the question in discussions of political candidates has become standard, a rather fun and punchy way to measure whether voters trust pols.For what it’s worth, Republicans in the 10 Super Tuesday states said they would rather buy a used car from Rick Santorum than from Mitt Romney. According to an IBOPE/Zogby poll commissioned by craigslist,...

    Mitt Romney won easy victories in Massachusetts, Virginia and Vermont Tuesday as he looked to take a commanding lead in the Republican presidential race. Newt Gingrich, hoping to revitalize his campaign, notched a home-field win in Georgia. Together, 10 states scattered across the country hosted Super Tuesday contests, the biggest day yet in the fight for the right to challenge President Barack Obama this fall. Ohio, a critical state in the general election, was the spotlight race, with Mr. Romney running close to former Sen. Rick Santorum, who has seen his Ohio lead erode. The former Pennsylvania senator was hoping...

    ‘Good luck tonight,’ Obama says to Romney on Super TuesdayBy Jonathan Easley - 03/06/12 02:00 PM ET President Obama offered his likely Republican opponent Mitt Romney a caustic “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.” Ten states will head to the polls for the March 6 Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses, and Romney is expected to win a plurality of...

    Just saying. I remember when McCain's just showed up in the popular keywords right after he won the nomination in 2008. For three years Palin and Sarah Palin were popular keywords, in fact I think I saw her there this week (Seriously I don't look there much, but I believe Sarah has recently gone) Now Romney and Romney2012 are popular keywords here. Just saying.

    As the price of gasoline soars, top Mitt Romney adviser, Harvard economist Greg Mankiw sticks to his guns and calls for a hike in gasoline taxes. In a recent blog post, Mankiw points to a WaPo column which states: N. Gregory Mankiw, former top economic adviser to President George W. Bush and current adviser to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, also backs a stiff gas tax increase... In a New York Times column this year, Mr. Mankiw offered a tax overhaul that might include a gas tax “exceeding” $2 per gallon. A significant portion of such a tax ultimately may...

You thought that I had it in for Romney when I pointed out that -- in my view, based on my instincts, my gut, study, my knowledge of who the left is -- I thought they wanted Romney as the nominee all along. I thought that's what Occupy Wall Street was all about was to set up Romney as the guy they were protesting. Romney is the kind...

    KINGSPORT, Tenn. -- Republican Newt Gingrich launched a final, two-day swing across the South on Monday in advance of the biggest voting day so far of the year. Gingrich planned to campaign on Monday and Super Tuesday in Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia -- and vowed to exceed expectations in all the Southern states voting this week and next. Gingrich touted new polls showing that he is closing the gap in Tennessee, and he predicted again that he will win his home state of Georgia with ease. In a morning interview on CNN, Gingrich admitted that losing Georgia could end his...

    There is no difference between Romney and Obama. We, the Republic, are being denied the choice to say NO to socialism. It’s a setup. The fix is in. We, the Republic, have been loosing a war of financial attrition for decades. We, the Republic are engaged in a war with those who govern us. Drastic measures are required to defeat this enemy in order to stop the bleeding that each of us are seeing in the depreciation of our savings, the constant onslaught of taxes, fees, and licenses. Each of them designed to remove our ability to live free. If...

  • Romney up 16 in Gallup national poll (Can Santorum or Gingrich prevent a tipping point?)

    Hotair ^ | 03/06/2012 | Ed Morrissey
    Pundits have talked for weeks about the possibilities for a brokered convention after having seen one of the more volatile nominating contests in memory. Neither party has had a brokered convention for 50 years, however, and it’s not because we haven’t had competitive primaries in that time. Usually, voters tend to hit a tipping point and start getting behind a leading candidate, which effectively ends the competitive phase of a nomination fight and puts the party on a glide path to a unifying convention in the late summer. That point gets reached when one candidate simply starts winning often enough...

    ...and neither can Gingrich. FHQ has been saying since our Very Rough Estimate of the delegate counts a couple of weeks ago that Romney is the only candidate who has a chance to get there. But, of course, I have not yet shown my work. No, it isn't mathematically impossible, but it would take either Gingrich or Santorum over-performing their established level of support in the contests already in the history books to such an extent that it is all but mathematically impossible. Santorum, for instance, has averaged 24.2% of the vote in all the contests. Since (and including) his...

    Mitt Romney could all but guarantee he’ll be the GOP presidential nominee by winning Ohio on Super Tuesday. A win there will hand Romney a chunk of delegates as well as a shot of momentum, making it hard for his opponents to catch him and bolstering the former Massachusetts governor’s argument that he’s the best choice to beat President Obama in the fall. “Ohio is a state that [Rick] Santorum cannot afford to lose,” said GOP strategist Alex Castellanos, who worked for Romney in 2008 but is neutral in this race. “If Santorum loses Ohio, it’ll be practically impossible to...

    March 6 VA Republican Presidential Primary, your 4 voting options On March 6th, the Republican Party of Virginia will be holding its Presidential Primary at your local polling precincts.

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...
