    IT’S ABOUT TIME!

    Attorneys general unite to defend the rule of law
    The Daily Caller
    Nine Republican attorneys general declared Monday that the Obama administration is riding roughshod over the law, and is using its regulatory powers to impose huge costs on the states.

    I live in south central Georgia and been around to a couple of polling sites. The turnout is very light according to the election workers. This is the type of area that is supposed to be a strong area for Newt. Romney could make it a lot closer here in Goergia than most of us thought earlier.

  3. BarryGoldwaterExcitedTheBase says:

    Look at the war criminal getting his @ss kicked

    lol

  4. Tim V says:

    after today/tonight, anyone not supporting mitt is basically supporting obama. time to make your choice. newt and rich have zero path to the nomination. it is time to come together as a party.

    sohope, will you be the ambassador to bjg, to bring them on board ? or should we sent the parakeet, who used to be a regular over there before he decided to grace hhr with his presence ?

  5. DaveyJ says:

    Ol’ Lightbulb-Head (B.Kerrey) ought to seriously reconsider coming out of retirement. It doesn’t look too promising! LOL!

  6. Tim V says:

    since the parakeet is the model of respect and reasoned debate maybe he should volunteer for the mission.

  7. BarryGoldwaterExcitedTheBase says:

    I liked posting on bjg it was fun

    sohope should be the ambassador however

  8. BarryGoldwaterExcitedTheBase says:

    Why thank you

    Reasoned quiet debate has always been my strength

  9. SoHope says:

    At BJG I am persona non grata. I got banned twice there for asking who they supported over?

    Lisab may be up for the task.

  10. Rockefeller Republican says:

    #10!!! As in Big-10 co-champs Ohio St…

    Yay Buckeyes who will git w/ Mitt today…

    Mitt takes 9 of 10 today.

  11. SUSYQUE says:

    Why has HHR been invaded by not so pleasant posters? Would appreciate a serious response
    by long-time HHR posters.

  12. Tim V says:

    maybe knighthawk can bring them along… also there is at least one mitt supporter over there

  13. SoHope says:

    *over there?

  14. Rockefeller Republican says:

    oh well #12 not 10…makes sense since they are 12 teams in the Big 10.

  15. Tim V says:

    13- your guess is as good as mine, IDK.

  16. Tim V says:

    We will have no credibility attacking Obamacare, abortion, stimulus, bailouts, cap and trade, AGW, (global warming) etc.

    Zilch. Nada.

    A Romney selection is suicide.

    Vote Santorum as if your life depended on it, since it does.

    Losing with him is better than winning with Romney and having our credibility on issue after issue with progressives totally undermined forever.

    Susy #13

    Some are trolls supporting Obama who fear Romney our strongest nominee

    The rest are anti Mormon bigots who are so desperate to keep Romney out that they would probably support literally anyone other than him

  25. Phil says:

    I wonder what possessed Kerrey to change his mind and take on what looks like a suicide mission.

    Very strange.

  26. ReggieBushForPresident says:

    He did it as a favor to the dnc there will be some kickback to him or one of his friends

  27. MFG says:

    Enough fake handles for now…

  28. Phil says:

    Kerrey reminds me of the Blanche Lincoln Arkansas race. Hopeless.

    After watching Nelson vote with Harry Reid on Obamacare, Nebraska isn’t going to fall for the “I’m a centrist Democrat” BS again.

    Doesn’t help Kerrey that Obama will be at the top of the ticket in a dark red state.

    So long, Bob.

  29. Rockefeller Republican says:

    Bruning will win the primary and the seat…just shaping up to be another GOP year…people are still pissed, gas is up, economy in the mire…

    The Federal Court charged with drawing New York congressional districts has released it’s preliminary draft. It seems to effect most Democrat Katy Huchul and Republican Bob Turner.

  33. Phil says:

    Seriously, watching Tester, Kerrey, Claire Mccaskill, Jim Webb, Blanche Kennedy, Mary Landrieu and friends run as “moderate” Democrats every six years makes me want to puke.

    PPP has a poll out on the Maine Senate race. I won’t trouble myself in posting the link but it shows Angus King in front.

  35. Bitterlaw says:

    I trace the decline of HHR discourse to LaZebra’s comment that he feared that Romney becomign President would lead to more people becoming Mormons.

    I don’t want to discuss the religious wars.

  36. marc says:

    In New York Bob Turner and Maurice Hincheys district are gone.

  37. marc says:

    On first take, analysts of both parties saw freshman Reps. Chris Gibson (R), Kathy Hochul (D) and Bob Turner (R) in the biggest trouble under the new map. Rep. Gary Ackerman (D), who was drawn into the same district as Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel (D), appears to have a district to run in, though it won’t be the one he lives in. He is not expected to run against Israel.

    . . . .

    The draft redraw shored up the districts of freshman Rep. Richard Hanna (R) and gave Rep. Brian Higgins (D) an exceedingly Democratic district. Vulnerable Reps. Ann Marie Buerkle (R) and Bill Owens (D) remain in difficult political territory under the court-drawn draft lines.

    romney: that is very flattering mr. president, and it is very well liked by the people of massachusetts …

    but the other states do not want massachusetts health care.

  41. DaveyJ says:

    Please help me, Romney supporters. This is a sincere request, as I am starting to realize that we soon may all be supporting Mitt Romney for President. But, as a skeptic, I have no idea how to convince anyone else to vote for him, other than “He’s not Obama”. Let’s start with WHY you all think he’s so very “qualified” to be President. As I look at his past, I see the following:

    1. He turned around the Olympics. No argument, good job! A feather in his cap.

    2. He made millions (billions?) of dollars as a venture capitalist. But is this really a qualification? Has he ever acted as a CEO, with a payroll, for a company that actually produces a product? From what I’ve read, he merely was very good at “moving money around”. That’s great capitalism, but is it really qualification to be POTUSA?

    3. He was Governor of Massachusetts for four years. But what is his record there? His only lasting accomplishment is Romneycare. As Rick Perry reminded us many times, Mass was #46 in job creation while he was there. At the end of his 4 years, he was so unpopular that polls showed he would lose in a landslide — so he didn’t run.

    4. He’s been able to raise millions of dollars in campaign funds and put together a powerful organization. Seriously, most of the big bucks he’s raised has come from his many years as a very rich man, with many very rich friends. Also, as a high-profile Mormon, he’s been the beneficiary of lots of political giving from Mormon businesses, such as the JW Marriot hotel company. Again, this is great for him, but is it really presidential?

    So, to summarize, if I look at my #1 through #4 above, I see that his only real positive qualification is turning the Olympics around. Is that all we got?

  42. lisab says:

    “He was Governor of Massachusetts for four years. But what is his record there?”

    we have low unemployment and a thriving business atmosphere, even in these troubled times

  43. Walt says:

    Anxiously awaiting to read comments here tonight after polls close.

  44. SUSYQUE says:

    #43…I think “you’re pulling our leg” (can’t be serious) but here goes:
    Jack Welsh says:
    “Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the most qualified candidate for president in the past 75 years, says Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric.

    “In my lifetime, Mitt Romney is the most qualified leader I’ve ever seen run for the presidency in the United States,” Welch, 76, said during an appearance today on CNBC.
    Welch listed Romney’s accomplishments, including his degrees from Harvard law and business schools, his success in the business world, running the 2002 Winter Olympics, and as governor.

    “We haven’t’ had anybody do all these things . . . Certainly [President Barack] Obama didn’t have those credentials, two years in the Senate,” he said. “Come on, we got a guy a here who’s a leader that’s demonstrated beyond anything we’ve ever had, great family. We’re the luckiest people in the world to have this guy there at this point in time.”

  45. bio mom says:

    Romney drops 4 today in gallup 5 day tracker. Santorum gains 2. Gingrich stays the same. Not good as a sign of momentum for Romney. I blame his refusal to do the Sunday shows, ceding the battlefield to his enemies.

  46. bio mom says:

    It is also probably due to two very high post Michigan win days dropping off.

  47. DW says:

    strange…here in VA the conservative talk radio station is covered today with Newt ads…some pac is paying for the ads…maybe someone should have told the person paying for the ads that Newt isn’t on the ballot. I just voted, and there is not even a place where you can do a write-in. The options are Paul or Romney.

  48. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Mitt Romney says:

    DW Im in FL, already voted for Mitt a month plus ago, we’re still getting Newt super PAC ads…

  49. jason says:

    ” So, to summarize, if I look at my #1 through #4 above, I see that his only real positive qualification is turning the Olympics around. Is that all we got?”

    Even if I accepted this silly premise, which I don’t, what exactly did Obama have besides chutzpah and the MSM?

  50. DW says:

    51…Obama also had Greek columns and a great preacher!

  51. Bitterlaw says:

    Jason – DaveyJ will just pull the football away so there is no point in responding.

  52. Robbie says:

    The main reason I’m so sour about any Republican candidate’s chance of beating Obama is the electoral college. It favors Obama significantly.

    Just start with the 2004 map. Almost certainly, Obama is going to win every state John Kerry won that year. That means Obama has a base of 246 votes.

    Obama would need just 24 more votes to win. If he wins FL, he wins. If he wins OH and IA, he wins. If he wins CO, NV, IA, and NM, he wins.

    Another way to look at it is to start with the 2008 map. Even if Romney wins back IN, VA, NC, FL, and OH, he would still be 4 votes short. If he won NH along with those states, he would be at 270, but it remains to be seen if Romney can win VA, FL, or OH. Someone helpful with hispanics would help in the Mountain West states, though.

    It can be a close race, but the electoral college landscape clearly favors Obama. Romney can turn it around, but he’s going to need a major spike in oil prices and a beefed up conservative policy agenda to bring the base completely over to him.

    It’s doable, but it requires a lot of things going right.

    An easy path to victory and a glorious second term for President Obama. The country will further realize what an awful mistake was made in putting the children in charge of the esteemed House of Representatives and welcome back Speaker Nancy Pelosi with open arms. We will probably only gain 3 or 4 seats in the Senate but it will be enough to force the non-crazy Republicans Senators to heel and obey their betters.

    I’m pretty sure the site I’m using has the updated results. I use the EV calculator at http://www.uselectionatlas.com. If it’s not correct, point me to an updated one.

  59. EML says:

    NY congressional map is actually not bad. It maintains communities of interest and creates a bunch of competitive districts. Hinchey’s and Turner’s districts get blitzed, but Kathy Hochul is also out and Buerkle got a district that is no worse than what she has now (56% Obama).

  60. janz says:

    #43 DavyJ

    I would suggest that you look more closely at Romney’s 4 year record in MA, including the context surrounding his involvement in HC.

    Considering the heavy opposition posed by a legisture that held over a 4/5 democratic advantage, with an equally weighted MA dem party affiliation, rendering conservative policies was next to impossible. Despite all that, he was able to rid the state of deficits, leaving it with a small surplus, balance the budget, and devise a better health care plan for the state than what was there when he first became governor.

    Basically, Romney’s reign in MA has been underrated, and dragged down under the rip tides of talking points, many originating from democrats who don’t want Romney to win the nomination.

    Romney’s affinity for wealth, his own and attracting it from donors, doesn’t bother me, like it appears to bother you. However, due to the OWS movement, another dem creation, IMO, wealth is now on the white board listing what is currently deemed as negative achievements, a disgrace. Nonetheless, at the end of the day, it is this same wealth that must be primed with confidence, allowing for people to invest it back into our weak economy, so we can deal with a real recovery.

    So, Romney has the skill set to be a legitimate contender. Naysayers like you, though, are stuck in the land of misinformation!

  63. janz says:

    Jan

    30!!! This morning I heard 11. Are you sure about that number?

  64. NYCmike says:

    DaveyJ,

    I received this email, something written for the WSJ, here is a passage about reasons given by some of the candidates AGAINST Reagan – “Nor was candidate Reagan without baggage. As governor, Reagan had pushed through the largest tax hike in California’s history, had signed one of the nation’s most liberal abortion laws, and—as George H.W. Bush pointed out—presided over the doubling of the state budget over his eight-year tenure, to $10.2 billion when he left office from $4.6 billion when he entered.”

    -The thing about Romney, for me anyway, compared to all of the other candidates, is simply his demeanor, his discipline, the fact that he has shown executive skills, his willingness to prepare and organize for a long campaign (as Reagan did, having had 2 previous attempts!). His experience as a governor, as a business executive, as the person responsible for turning around a civic event, all lend credence to my confidence that he will do the right thing. Mind you, I am not comparing him to Reagan, but simply saying, compared to the rest, he has done the work necessary, and I think he wants the job (why I don’t know!), which means he will FIGHT for it against Obama.

  65. EML says:

    56 – well, he’s right with the 246, but he’s wrong with the analysis. I don’t think the race is as static as he claims it is. The 2010 election showed a huge swing to Republicans in the midwest/Rust Belt. PA, OH, IN, MI, WI, MN, IA were all dominated by Republicans. I think all of these states will be competitive with Romney. Romney also makes the western states NV, CO, and NM competitive. And I wouldn’t count out Oregon and maybe WA. The electorate isn’t static and thinking that it’s going to be like 2004 is covering your eyes to 2010.

  66. Proud Obamacon says:

    Buh Bye Rush Limbaugh! In all candor, I would much prefer that he stay on the air. He is the best friend the progressive movement has ever had.

  67. SUSYQUE says:

    #58 Robbie…Jack Welch, an astute business man
    recognizes a man like Romney who has 100% ability and experience compared to our present president when he was elected by the undiscerning electorate who put him in the white house.

  68. MFG says:

    Play the Mormon card?

    If Mitt were an evangelical Christian you’d never hear any of these criticisms and we all know that

  69. Robbie says:

    The one certain thing the electoral college map shows is Romney must win FL and OH. If he loses either state, he loses the race. It’s that simple.

    The best way for Romney to approach this is to choose a VP who locks down one of these states. Jeb Bush locks down FL. Rubio, according to recent polling, doesn’t and I don’t think he wants to run anyway.

    Hate the Bush name if you want, but it’s gold in FL and that would be huge boost for Romney. Romney and Bush could campaign almost exclusively in OH and probably win it.

    Christie is the only other person I could imagine making an impact, but he doesn’t lock down FL or OH. EC map math is going to be key to Romney’s pick.

    I don’t feel bad for Rush. His influence is been nothing but negative these last few years especially this primary season. All this is his own doing and hopefully is goes the way of Glenn Beck on Fox.

    Mitt should pick Reggie Bush for VP did you see the Vikings game in 2008? Reggie returned two punts for tds can Jeb do that?

    Comment by EML — March 6, 2012 @ 2:52 pm

    You’re right. The race isn’t static because there’s been a big swing back to the Democrats in the rust belt states. The Republicans who won in those states in 2010 are having a horrible time with the voters in 2012. Walker is up for recall and Kasich is around 40% approval.

    The worst mistake anyone can make is to draw a straight line from an off-year election to a presidential year election. Turnout is so much lower in an off year that it’s not the same group of people voting. PA and WI may have gone strongly Republican in 2010, but they’re left leaning in presidential years. Tester won in MT in 2006, but that didn’t mean MT was going Obama in 2008.

  84. AuthorLMendez, Liberterian For Mitt Romney says:

    so Robbie is really playing this concern troll gimmick right huh?

    If the only argument you have is to say I’m an Obam troll, then you have no argument at all.

    I did not say Romney couldn’t get to 270. In fact, I laid out how he could, but the map, right now, is very much against him.

    Take off the Mittbot blinders.

    Sweetheart, and I mean that in a very nasty way, I am not an Obama supporter. I just rejected the talk Romney was the only viable national candidate. That was heresy on this site though. That’s over now because he’ll be the nominee.

    Still, the same problems I had with him are still present in the electoral college. Today, the map is against him. He must win FL and OH. If he doesn’t, he loses. No one can argue with that.

    Don’t you have a better response than to say I’m a troll. Seriously, aren’t you more mature than that? Are you not able to handle anything that’s not Mitt Romney happy talk.

    I laid out the case why it’s tough for him to win, but I also showed how he could who might go a long way towards helping him make the electoral college math a lot easier.

    Grow up.

    The 2010 census helped the GOP greatly, especially if Romney is the nominee. He is the ONLY GOP candidate who can (and I believe WILL) take New Hampshire. With that state in the bag, Romney will most certainly take back IN, and very strong chances as NC. This leaves FL, OH and VA. I really like Mitt’s chances in VA, and in FL, Mitt connects well with seniors. The real question is OH. But OH has been the real question since the 19th century, so what’s new?

    Your right and I said that was the reason I was so sour about any of the four remaining candidates. That’s why I was hoping someone else got into the race. Christie could have changed the map and Bush would have as well. They’re not running though.

    I always felt Romney had the best chance of the four remaining choices, but I’m not sure was ever saying much. His move to the right on immigration hurt him in the Mountain West and now he must consider how to change that view with a VP pick.

    I would never try to make the case Santorum had better prospects in the Fall than Romney. I just don’t like Romney for a whole host of reasons. That’s over now because he’ll be the choice.

    Tommy Thompson had key role in establishing Romneycare: As federal official, he backed state’s right to establish new program

    “In the interview with Van Susteren, Thompson repeatedly compared Romney’s health insurance program to his effort to overhaul welfare in Wisconsin.

    Neither program, Thompson said, could have been done without help from the feds.
    “That’s what you do when you want to try something new,” he said. “You look at ways to fund a new program. And that is what the federal government and the states did. That’s where we set up a constitution of states’ right and allow states to be laboratories of democracy. We wouldn’t have welfare reform if I didn’t have the welfare waiver.”

    But Thompson concluded by saying he didn’t think that the federal government had the funds to provide seed money for all states to institute similar programs – or a mandatory national insurance plan.

    “That’s why the Obamacare law is not going to be able to stand the test of fiscal sanity,” Thompson said. “That’s why the Obama laws have got to be repealed.”

    What’s the point of bashing Obama when everyone here disagrees with his policies. Do you think I like Obamacare? Do you think I like Dodd/Frank? Do think I like Sotomayor and Kagan? Do you think I like his tax policy? The answer to all is no.

    I’m here debating who is the best choice to be the nominee, who is the best choice to be the VP, and how do these choices cobble together 270 votes. I want Republicans to win, but I’m not going to stick my head in the sand either when things are going badly.

    The author gets is right essentially. He errs in placing Romney (?) in Reagan’s role.

    In 2012, Santorum is Reagan. Romney is Ford, even though Gerald was not a candidate other than in conjecture.

    The argument, and polls, showed a misleading picture. 1980 was a contrast based election. You do not win those with a candidate to similar to the incumbent, then Ford respective to Carter, or today’s Obama in relation to Mittens.

    The Establishment warned of Reagan being too easily painted as a religious right kook, citing the news bits taken out of context, just like Santorum.

    They wanted Bush senior, not junior, another Romney.

    Comment by MFG — March 6, 2012 @ 3:23 pm

    I think he’s an opportunist who has no core convictions. When he ran against Kennedy in 1994, he ran as a liberal Republican. When he ran for governor in 2002, he ran as a moderate. When he ran for president in 2008, he ran as a hard right candidate. Now in 2012, he’s running on electability.

    Which is it? Who is Romney? I don’t know and that’s why I’ve always opposed him. I think he’s running for president simply because he wants to be president. I don’t think he’s running for a cause. Regardless, he’s going to be the nominee and I want him to win because I believe the Republican House will force him to the right on the important issues.

  131. MFG says:

  132. dinglewoodnorwoodbill says:

    Another reason to vote Santorum today is that Romney will not fight hard enough against Romney. He’s too surface nice to libs, preferring to attack conservatives like Santy.

    http://hotair.com/archives/2012/03/06/mitt-not-going-to-say-outrageous-things-about-the-president/

    He’s a GE loser, because, like McCain who assured the base that they had little to fear from an Obama presidency, he will not “set his hair on fire” to go there, preferring to be civil, etc.

    Natch, Obama will throw the fires of HELL at Romney, and will not play nice at all. Guess who wins that?

    Vote Santorum today in OH and elsewhere.

  133. Bitterlaw says:

    1980 – Reagan’s message: cut taxes/cut government/rebuild the military/take it to the Soviets.

    2012 – Santorum’s message: oppose contraception/invalidate gay marriages in states where it is legal/unite church and state.

    Wow. When you look at them side to side, it’s spooky how similar they are.

    #130 – Santorum is not Reagan, Romney is not Bush, 1980 is not 2012. For that matter, Obama is not Carter, he is much more dangerous and competent as a campaigner. Santorum won 3 states a month ago, and all he had to do was SHUT UP about certain issues, but he could not. The same thing would happen in the General Election. I would be more comfortable with Newt than with Santorum, at least Newt knows how to deal with current events. He jsut couldn’t escape his past. Romney has done what he had to do, I will support him full throttle if he gets the nomination. Some money and time, walking my precinct, etcetera.

    Puhhhleasse…. don’t even mention them in the same sentence.

    I am a rabid Reagan fan, I think he was the best President in the 20th century, he had a mission: reverse the welfare state and bankrupt the Soviet Union. He did not end the welfare state, but at least he changed the discourse. And he won the Cold War. Reagan was a winner, a leader, an inspirational speaker. Reagan had a vision.

    Santorum is a mediocre has been, the ultimate insider who never went outside the box in his decades in Washington “taking it for the team”. A porker and earkmarker emeritus. He has no vision, except to regulate social behavior to match his own bizarre views. That is his mission.

That is the crux, and indeed, the limit of my analogy.

  171. GF says:

    EML1, the only problem is that about 1/4-1/3 of Republicans will vote for King. If we can push that number down and promote some damned party loyalty, we just might have a shot. As it is, should PPP actually be in the ball park, a 36-31-28 split with a sitting SoS as our candidate may end up working out in the end. Take five points off of King and give that to Summers if the Rs come home, and you have a really tight race where anyone can win based on who turns out their voters. No doubt, this will be the best race of the cycle.

    And Mitt will do fairly well in ME, maybe just enough to drag Summers or the GOP AG across the line should he run as well.

    If this scumbucket wins tonight, one almost hopes for Obama to win, since no conservative or Republican of any honor could vote for him after his carpetbombing crap.

    There is a reason Romney is all negative, just like in the 2008 primaries using 3rd party Superpacs to smear opponents, it’s because nothing exists in his resume to vote FOR.

I cast Romney on the first page i turned to the second page and then I was given a choice of the same people again but this time to pick delegates from the 10th CD.

    Honey, please don’t be persuaded by the assinine comments from the crying room. I’m not an Obama voters. For God’s sake, I donated to Fred Thompson’s campaign in 2008. I’m just sick of the fairy tales I see being spun about how great Romney’s doing. Dissenting opinion, especially if it’s to the right of Romney, is not welcomed here.

  235. jason says:

    “You are just a worthless guy and the only joy I’ll take from Romney’s defeat on election is knowing you will have been proven completely wrong”

    LOL.

    So if Romney loses it means Santorum would of won?

    Romney could win or lose, but he won’t lose 40 states and bring the House and Senate down with him.

    If you read my posts, you won’t find me sugarcoating the fact Obama will be hard to beat. He has big advantages in incumbency, money and the MSM.

    So if you will enjoy seeing Romney lose, that’s fine, I know you want Obama. But it doesn’t change the fact he is the most electable candidate the Rs have.

    Yes, because not feeling the need to tow the line for Romney is synonimous with being a lying scumbag.

    I post here because I enjoy it. I’m not the one who starts the useless back and forths. I just get attacked for writing my opinion. For instance, earlier today I wrote Obama starts with a base of 246 electoral votes and the map, right now, is against Romney.

    For that, I was called a gay, a pig, a jerk, a Democrat, someone who wants to perform sex acts on Obama, an a$$h0Le, and a jackass. Seems reasonable, right.

All successful comedy is based in truth, and your doom & gloom rants were perfectly satired by Corey and then Dr. Jay using your own words up-thread. No need to get nasty with me as you’ll find with a cursory search that I have never been harsh with you as you deem others to have been. Indeed, you would find yourself infinitely more popular, and by virtue of that, more enjoyable to banter with.

    For the record, I don’t know that you are a troll, for if you were, you’d be doing a poor job. What I do know is that you are incessantly glooming over in your corner. OK, we get it; Romney’s not great, and the rest of the clowns are weak. We already know this and most have said as much. We’re way past that point now and trying to make the best of it. You were rightly knocked about for pushing the Jeb nonsense and the brokered convention meme. No time for any of that, and Jeb would be crucified for his last name alone (I feel bad for him as he was far superior to his brother in many ways, but that’s life and poltics for you).

    That’s as nice as I am going to get. Leave me be and focus your fire on your true foes here. I only fight with Kory and occasionally Scissors, and the former gives far better than most trolls here could ever hope to.

    Horse crap.

    We have four candidates. Despite your silly fantasies, there is no brokered convention.

    So we pick the best one against the real enemy, Obama. The one that can appeal best to the demographics and in the swing states needed to defeat Obama. That guy is Romney, not Santorum not Gingrich not Ron Paul.

    It’s not rocket science or colored glasses.

  292. jason says:

    Exactly.

    You go with your best candidate, you see the situation for what it is, Obama’s re-election would be a disaster.

    If Wobbie Troll thinks Santorum is a better choice, make that case. But just tearing Romney down when there is no other alternative makes him a troll, there is no other explanation.

    47% percent of Ohio voters said Romney’s positions on the issues were “right,” 37% said they were not conservative enough and 7% said they were too conservative.

    Just voted in the ND caucas in Minot, ND. Turn out is pretty good. The caucas and the voting started at 5:30pm Central time. I saw alot of Santorum signs. It would not surprise me if Santorum wins the state but who knows.

  317. Tim V says:

    what about peyton with the nine ?

  318. MFG says:

    Yes, Peyton on the Nine would make them immediate NFC favorites

  319. EML says:

    LOL, Newt wins GA, but they refuse to announce Romney in VA and VT. Losers

  320. jan says:

    Projection: Newt win Georgia.

  321. pitchaboy says:

    Of course they gave Newt GA but will not call VT or VA.

  322. MFG says:

    Dolphins, Ravens, Broncos? Eagles? Cowboys? Cardinals?

    Where will Peyton land?

  323. Waingro says:

    Wow. “Too close to call” in VA and VT. “Dead heat” between Paul and Romney VT according to Shep Smith.

  324. GF says:

    NT…and Jul joins in just for that alone!

  325. Phil says:

    CNN says Romney substantially ahead in Va exit polls.

  326. pitchaboy says:

    The Fox coverageis insufferable.Shep Smith is terrible. At the end of the day Romney will VA by over 15 points and make these clowns looks foolish.

  327. Dylan says:

    I don’t know what it says about our pathetically PC country that RUSH loses sponsors because in an effort to spoof an absurd PR set-up by the Dems, he calls their key spokeswoman a slut. say what you want about Limbaugh but pulling sponsorships over that is pathetic and so lemminglike..

  328. Tim V says:

    can paul begala and donna brazile be any more PARTISAN ? it’s so sickening, I can’t watch cnn right now. gloria bolger isn’t hiding her political leanings either.
