April 3, 2012

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.

Fair question. I have thought about that. As one of, perhaps the, longest term supporters of Santorum on this board:

I still will not support Romney even if Santorum is his VP.

Check my tagline.

I have seen too many elections over too many years. I know the direction that the culture is going. I also believe that Romney has no intention of changing the direction of the culture. As I have stated before, the greatest enemies of social conservatives are liberal Republicans.

“The only chance Santorum has, is if the Democrats show up in large enough numbers to Prank the vote, like they did in Michigan, Alabama and Mississippi.”

Santorum winning Dane County (Madison) early?

Santorum won Democrats in Wisconsin from what I've seen of the exit polls. Liberal blogs and forums are trying to pull their own version of "Operation Chaos" and encouraging Democrats to get out and vote Santorum because they know he doesn't stand a chance in a general election.

You and your establishment friends have doomed us to 4 more years of Obummer.

I don't agree.

A decent conservative candidate could beat the communist from Kenya.

Listening to Santorum's speech tonight is worse than being waterboarded.

Third party candidate could take it all.

SANTORUM ON LIVE ON FOX RIGHT NOW, GIVING ONE OF THE BEST SPEECHES, (STILL FIGHTING ON) HITTING ALL THE POINTS THAT ENCOMPASS THE CENTER OF FREE REPUBLIC AND ITS OWN PRINCIPLES. 9:25 p.m. Eastern Time

He called Obama a "dictator", and he just now referred to Romney as an "etch a sketch".

I just thought you were a Newt supporter who is obsessed with going negative on Santorum. But for you to call Romney a “solid choice” shows your true colors.

What conservative calls Romney a “solid choice??”

Last night, Jon Stewart was ranking on Romney’s endorsements, regarding how lukewarm they were. I’m not sure Romney is the first choice of his endorsers, either.

Jon Steward said (paraphrased), imagine what it would have been like, instead of Ronald Reagan’s “Morning in America”, we had Well, I Guess It’s Time to Get Up.

The greatest Santorum line was hitting Romney. He has got the crowd fired up. His bashing Obama and Romney is most excellent. He is also revisiting Republican Party history, its failure to win elections by nominating MODERATES—as controlled by the Leadership vanquishing the conservative grassroots. Great speech! Packed House.

What did caving to the establishment get us in ‘08? What did it get us in ‘12? Will 2016 be any different?

When Romney loses to Obama in November, it will be no different to the powers that be than it was when McCain lost. They will foist upon us another RINO democrat-lite in 2016, given half a chance.

As long as conservatives contribute to a party that disregards everything and everyone conservative, it will get the same plate of retread candidates. We need a hero (or heroes) who is/are unafraid to take on those who are leading us in political circles at the expense of our nation's future. It's not too late and voters are praying for just that.

“I am very similar to you, except I was more pessimistic on Santorum. Also I confess, I might vote for Romney in November (assuming he is the nominee).”

I have to say, at this point I’d love to see a 3rd party, TEA PARTY run by Sarah Palin.

With two liberals (0 and Willard) splitting the rest of the vote, she just might pull it off.

Otherwise, it’s looking pretty grim.

I picked Santorum instead of Paul, due to Paul’s habit of accepting donations of people like those from Stormfront. Newt was out of the question for me — imagine having the First Mistress in the White House. And Romney is almost physically repulsive to me these days.

Maryland election judge here. Our precinct voted 75% Obama 25% uncommmitted.

With a closed primary, a one party state, and a precinct full of conservative old democrats, I believe this reflects the usual crossover presidential votes. Our precinct voted McCain with more democrats than republicans in 08.

I do believe Rick Santorum is in a position to perhaps slimly win WISCONSIN tonight.

This, if it occured, will disappoint many of the dishonest ROMNEY supporters here on FR masquerading as Newt supporters or virulently always incessantly anti-Santorum, even on Santorum threads for organizing for his supporters (low class if you ask me).

Reason I believe it is possible for Fox News (in the bag, like Drudge, for Willard) to retract is that the vote in WISCONSIN is TIED at:

ROMNEY 40%

SANTORUM 40%

In the CNN exit poll Dems went 37% for Santorum, 19% for Romney.

Won't be enough, Romney led in the exit poll by precisely what he led in the polls up to today, 7%.

But then again Fox has been Romney worshipers forever.

Hopefully Wisconsin can do what Illinois failed to do when the idiots in my state voted for Mittens.

Everyone I know including myself voted Santorum. Too many country club repubs in Illinois, which is why rats always win.

Time to take the blue blood country clubber Washingtonians at the RNC out.

They and their greedy pulled back wives are all about extorting cash from the working man at gunpoint, skimming off the top for themselves, and redistributing the rest to their friends, no different than the retards in the Jackass party.

GOP will split.

I feel the same way. The impending demise of the GOP is reflective of that of America as we know it.

Remember how tall we stood when Reagan led the country for those eight great years? What a blessing it is to have experienced that wonderful era. God bless President Reagan for that final brilliance as the Shining City on a Hill. We were never the same once he left office.

But what a great run we had...

As always, projected winners are based on a combination of exit polls and analysis of the precincts that are in.

99.9999999999999999% of network projected winners win. Everyone remembers Florida in 2000 but that was very much the exception.

Romney will win in the densely-populated areas, and the totals there will come in slowest, and for the 80 billionth time, because it’s close and then Romney pulls away morons will assert fake votes were “held back” to rig the election.

Just out of curiousity, how does prayer change votes that are already submitted?

Maybe so, but the problem is finding said conservative. In a land full of career politicians who don't want to rock the boat (doesn't that sound like a movie trailer?) where can we find an American patriot who's willing to call out the GOP establishment?

I literally can't think of a single person, not even Sarah Palin. I respected Rand Paul until he said it would be an honor to be considered as Romney's VP. Pat Toomey is thankfully NOT endorsing Romney, but we don't need someone who can keep his mouth shut; we need someone who will keep it open.

Wrong. 1) I have been here longer than you. Since at least 1997 or 1998 - my earlier id from college has been lost but I know I was here at that time.

I have NEVER been pro-Romney.

Santorum guys like you are a bunch of cry babies. I don't support Santorum because this is a primary competition. I was for Palin and when she didn't run I was for Newt. Not everyone who doesn't support Santo is a Romney troll, you big dope.

It is looking good in WISCONSIN. In counties with high incomes (where Romney tends to do the best), Santorum is beating Romney (I see something like a six to six county lead split for either Rick or Mitt right now, a real nail biter), and the central blue collar corrider areas north and south (Fox Valley) of the state, which should be solid Santorum, have yet to report. It is still at about 40% to 40%, with Romney slightly over Santorum. It will seesaw, but we can hope these rural areas come in and push Senator Santorum up and over Romney for a win in Wisconsin. Would not that be something. Break out the cheese and the brats. And on to Pennsylvania! (Newt, at low double digits or mostly single digits these days, please, please, ally or otherwise get out please and endorse the anti-Romney left, take one for the CONSERVATIVE TEAM...you are a good man and I know you would do it).

Oh Boy I hope FOX NEWS has to retract WISCONSIN later and eat a nice fastidious cr*p sandwich with cheddar cheese on top, and Karl Rove would have to check himself in for uncontrollable eye twitching.

If you study the county-by-county totals it is obvious Romney has won:

http://www.cnn.com/election/2012/primaries/county/table/r/wi

You’ll note that there are counties with a lot of votes in, where Romney has a big lead, with a small % of votes counted, like Kenosha, Ozaukee, and of course Milwaukee.

So Mitt will pull away in about 2 hours from now of counting. Evidence that it’s not “rigged” is that the percentages in the big counties for each candidate won’t change, their vote totals will just increase changing the overall vote %.

I will not vote for him either. Any chance we could organize a massive write in? All of the fearful Anybody But Obama folks will start flaming us here. Well I will not continue, year after year to vote for the likes of Romney or Juan McCain. They can listen to the vote, or they can cease to exist as a party. The most detrimental parts of Obamacare start in the next Presidency and who knows what else, might as well let him look like a bigger liar and theif. Shore up congress and make him impotent.. that would be pure eeevil. His radical left positions are getting more difficult to defend by experience. I do not fear BO. This country was founded by One greater and it isn’t going anywhere by a mere man’s design. I get tired of the chicken little folks running around saying we must vote for Romney. I read Reagan’s Bold Colors transcript as suggested by a Freeper because my husband is in the fearful camp. He gets really angry that I will write in a Candidate. He says it’s a vote for Obama.. I say I am a voice in the wilderness.

You know we’ve been bullied by Alinsky methods from our own side, from Romney and several of his minions here on FR plus millions of others out their who demand the results they want.

It’s not over unless we give up, really. I’m not just trying to make anyone feel better. We can get to an open convention if we start thinking positively, campaign for Rick, and STOP ROMNEY!

Let’s recognize the manipulation and fight back before it really is too late.

It started with George H.W. reverting to moderate default position after Reagan left. Then in 2000, the Repubican Elite and Media telling us that sonny boy, “W”, was to be the coronated one next, no questions asked, thank you very much. Then they have since tried to shove Jeb Bush down our throats, Romney is just a variation of that. Yep, the Republican Party quite frankly has it within their capability of committing abject political suicide over these moderate nominees who will beat the crap out of conservatives in the primaries and then go all velvet glove on Democrat Dictators in the general (”Me Too!”), so as to not offfffffffffffend anyone. We see where that got us with McCain, and his/their handcuffing of Sarah Palin.

No. It is to pray that GOP Romney Party Hacks don't stuff the ballot boxes during counting to widen the gap. That's just for starters.

The other is spiritual time/space continuim. God reads into the future. He sees prayers which are to occur (future tense), and if so honored by that, can help apply it (the supplication retroactively) to any situation, even one which has already occurred in the past. That is what faith is all about, it knows no limitations in a time perspective. In fact, there are a lot of things to pray about these days. Such as the Supreme Court vote, I could go on and on.
