“Levin was on saying turnout was PITIFUL. Way to go GOP!”

After Willard Romney the open socialist finishes alienating the entire voting base with his avalanche of attack ads, maybe he can get to the REAL job...losing to Barack Obama.

It will be interesting to see how many of us who pledge unshakable opposition to Romney will end up voting for him after he “wins” the nomination.

Glad to see that a Romney win brings you such pleasure.

To which you replied:

Anybody but Santorum.

That 'anybody but Santorum' would certainly include Romney now wouldn't it.

Hey, *you* "come on and be honest" (sic). :-) I was not born yesterday and I did not just fall off the fertilizer truck. I know how the false flag and bait n' switch/disinfo game is slickly and disingenously played and was played on this forum and in other media on behalf of Willard. Just watch the Romneybots now all suddenly start to materialize and BS and feign on here, "well, looks like it's over, I don't like Mitt a bit but time to close ranks and support him."

This is the GOP-e game, and they have done it for every four years now, the last true Conservative Republican being Ronald Reagan and even that represented a bottom-up, grassroots rebellion against both GOP-e and the MSM arrayed against him. This fix is in, has been for weeks and months. Next it will be amplified by "conservative" talk show hosts already in the tank to urge the lemmings to go over the cliff for Bishop Romney as a "fait d'accompli" which they engineered from the start and knocked out conservative after conservative threat in this race. Bachman. Cain (joined the media circus and did not come to his defense). Perry. Next will be Gingrigh and Santorum for sure. This is who I hold responsible, the GOP Establishment and their water carriers.

I am insulting Newt because I am sick and tired of the nasty stuff toward Santorum. It is worse than how people around here talk about Obama. It truly is. Why is that?

I tried to hold it back for a couple days, but fair is fair. Neither of these guys is going to win, Romney is.

So Katie, bar the door.

That it will.

It will be a test for me, for sure. Can I pull the lever for a bottom feeder like Willard? Won't know until the time comes.

I'll tell you what else will be interesting - how many of the people here who've been on non-stop crusades against Santorum will turn up during the general, wagging their fingers about 'being a team player'.

That will be enlightening.

Pretty sad, once again my vote went to waste. I am proud to have voted for Rick, I originally was in the Newt camp but after his many losses I went with who I thought was the best to beat Mittens.

I hope Santorum realizes how stupid he was wasting all those days in Puerto Rico!!!

I'm a realist and sadly I think we have Mittens vs. Saul Alinsky Jr.

We really need to take back the party from the Roves, Drudges, Fox News talking heads, ect...

I don't regret voting for Santorum, I will always choose conservatism over settling...

IDK — but the media and liberal onslaught machine hasn’t even started yet. Wait until it’s 24/7 assault on Romney — “He’s too rich, he’s a fat cat, he’s in it for his rich friends .....blah, blah, blah ....I can’t identify with him .. .he’s a mormon, he’s weak ... he’s white.”

Again — way to go, GOP, for giving us McCain II.

And a special thanks to assanine Republican primary voters ...too stupid to live in what used to be a wonderful country.

I still, however, hold out hope ...for a brokered convention.I really do. Let this sink in a bit and we’ll see how it goes.

I've been around for more than a while; I consider myself both a Republican and a staunch conservative; and I've never had a more difficult time in identifying "my" candidate for the GOP POTUS nomination. Some of my favorites declined to run -- Barbour, Ryan, Daniels, Palin. Others dropped out early -- Pawlenty and Bachmann.

I like Newt, but it's clear that he can't attract votes in places other than the Deep South -- and not enough, even there. And, sorry -- Santorum makes my skin crawl; a lot of Republican primary voters apparently agree, and I don't want to imagine how many states he'd carry in a general election against Obama.

And now, Romney wins Illinois in a massive rout. Mitt wasn't my favorite; he wasn't in my top ten. But he'll be the Republican nominee. So, now what? Do you vote for a third-party candidate? Abstain from voting for President? Or do you vote for the only person who can remove Obama from the Oval Office?

I will not vote for Romney if he is the nominee. Just like Obama, he is a handbasket driver. Different model; different speed; but a handbasket driver all the same.

Already we have people standing hip deep in the cesspool at the bottom of the slippery slope saying, “This really doesn’t smell so bad.”

I may be drug in against my will, but I will never willingly jump in that cesspool.

The biggest enemies of social conservatives are liberal Republicans. Make no mistake about it: Romney is our enemy.

If Romney even starts to go after Obama, the press will be all over him for negative campaigning and how the people are sick of it.

Since negative is all Romney knows, where does he go from there?

There are two ways to win idiots’ votes.

One is to produce a well-funded and relentlessly negative campaign, spreading lies about your opponents and fanning all sorts of imaginary fears about them.

The other is to pretend to represent some sort of morally superior ideal, and to play identity politics until neither your record nor your policy positions actually matter.

Romney has generally taken the first route, and Santorum the second, though you can bet that behind the scenes Santorum is actively encouraging the “Newt is a baaaaaaaad man” narrative.

The primary reason Newt lost is because people are idiots. Some are conservative idiots, and some are liberal idiots, but 75% of voters in this country will listen to whichever side has the most ads, whatever the facts. They will tolerate lies, posturing, misrepresentation, and cliches— but they are deathly allergic to ideas. Newt refused to let his values and policy positions be reduced to sound bites, even sound bites like “I have cute kids; vote for me.” That may have been a tactical error given the current political climate, but it demonstrates that he was the strongest candidate in the race.

You and your fellow Santorum fans may feel a smug sense of moral satisfaction for “voting your conscience” this season. But all you’ve done is guarantee Obama a second term.

I'm still quite frankly shocked how big Mittens won by. I have not seen one Mittens sign anywhere here in the southwest suburbs of Chicago.

I voted for the most conservative and stand by that vote. I think a lot of folks who were going around blabbing how they were going to vote for Rick changed their minds in the voting booth.

I am not going to accuse people of being really Mitt supporters hiding behind other candidates but when it comes down to Mitt and the worst POTUS in history, a man I met in 2005 one on one and I believe he is the most evil person I have ever met in person. He would stab you in the neck and smile to your face. That is Barack Obama, he is pure evil to the core.

I saw his rise here as Senator, then his rise to con America.

But like I said, I am not ashamed to have supported Rick Santorum, I voted for him, and I would vote for him again. This is just a hell hole state filled with crooks in both parties.

The GOP/DEM establishment in Illinois was in it for Mittens since Day 1.

You can thank the "Illinois Combine" for Mittens win, for further info on the Combine feel free to message myself, Fieldmarshaldj, impy or billyboy.

Us conservatives are going to these races with one hand tied behind our backs, if you don't believe it how did every GOP Candidate win in 2010 but the Governor's Race was stolen, ultimately leading to criminal gerrymandering.

I hate to hell this state!

No, you and those like you who have launched non-stop poisonous personal attacks on Rick and others, you are the children. So grow up and take responsibility for your words and actions. Personally, I'd like a civil discussion of candidates and issues but it's been out of reach as of late.

I sincerely hope it comes back.

Oh, I’d love a brokered convention. If neither Santorum nor Newt can defeat a candidate as weak as Romney, I’m ready flush them both down the toilet. I have no patience for losers.

If Romney wins, I may actually enjoy seeing the MSM tear him to shreds. I hate him that much. He’s on video stating that he’s a progressive. He’s on record in a 2009 op-ed urging Barack Obama to adopt the individual mandate on a national level. He signed socialized medicine and Cap & Trade into law. What’s to like?

Let it be known that Cato in PA will never, under any circumstances, vote for Mitt Romney.

"Thinking a ?moderate? Republican can win the General, is a misconception that some people make."

GW Bush was a moderate and won twice. His dad was a moderate and one once.

Nixon was a moderate and won twice.

Eisenhower was a moderate and won twice.

That's just since WWII.

Both moderates and conservatives can win. It has a LOT to do with their political skills and the nature of their opponent.

Yeah it does seem to be coming down but I think a lot of people claimed to support Santorum voted differently in the ballot box.

I called the Santorum a week ago and told them going to Puerto Rico and not going to the suburbs of Chicago would cost him the state. I was right. Mittens would have won Puerto Rico because he is as good as pandering to Hispanics as Obama is at pandering to Muslim dictators!!!

At least I can go to sleep tonight that I voted what I truly believed. Did we lose? Looks like it, but I'm still proud I voted for the real conservative in the race and not a RINO who gave us Obamacare on a silver platter!!!

so why bash a conservative man like Santorum just because he was doing better in the polls?

Because sweater vest idiot man is a douchebag degenerate lawyer for "pro" wrestlers, who supported MYTH in 2008 and Arlen Specter, who switched parties and cast the deciding vote for Obamacare?

The megalomaniac loser from PA who lost his reelection to the Senate by 18% and uses Romney supporter Foster Friess money to stay in the race and take out Gingrich??

The only solution to this problem is annihilation of the blue blood country clubbers at the RNC and their creepy pulled back wives.

The GOP must die.

This is the meaning of the world "ill-gotten".

Romney was up to merciless scorched earth, anti-Reaganesque nasty and offensive anti-Conservative candidate campaigning and non-stop attack ads to knock out and alienate GOP conservative sub base after conservative sub base, further depressing the votes and here we sit like lambs to the slaughter in November. Are we to award a passing grade to a student who brought in a cheat sheet? Well, technically, he did pass it, although through less than admirable methods. I have never seen a more low-class, moral-less politician I believe than Mitt Romney (maybe Nixon or Clinton woudl rank there, too).

Hey. Mission accomplished.

a) RINO wins the nomination as a shill to take the establishment fall in their little game to be slaughtered by the Lib Dem/Media in the general. Romney would not be one TENTH as tough and nasty and in your face through attack ads and robocalls on Obama as he was on any of these fine conservative candidates. Total John McCain's Second Coming.

b) GOP Conservative base is demoralized due to the incessant RINO machine/GOP-e attacks.

Great work. Right according to plan.

Like I said, now watch all the Romneybots who were either silent or scorched earth here against good conservatives from the get-go like Cain, Bachmann, Santorum, etc., suddenly stick their head up like groundhogs, and play the "oh well, we (sic) conservatives sure put up a good fight, but time to unite behind our leader, Governor Mitt Romney". Not buying that contrived, sneaky, dishonest sack of shit scripted from the get-go, even at a market discount. Seen it in action one too many times.
