Romney Secures 88 Texas Delegates, Clinches Nomination
New York Times ^ | 29 May 2012 | AP Projection

Posted on 05/29/2012 6:33:59 PM PDT by Vigilanteman

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has now secured at least 88 of the 155 delegates at stake in the Texas Primary, bringing his secured delegate total to 1174, 30 more than necessary to win the majority of the delegated needed for the GOP nomination.

With 4% of Texas precincts now reporting, Romney has consistently maintained or increased a 60 point lead over his nearest competitor, Congressman Ron Paul.

In the contested race for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate, David Dewhurst is holding a 48% to 31% lead over his nearest rival Ted Cruz in a nine person contest.

"What you can’t stand is a proven conservative like me..."

You're not only a liar, but a delusional moonbat. Your posts bear that out with your utterly disgusting pimping for Willard and other non-Conservatives like DewCrist. You get called out repeatedly and either play deaf & dumb and/or act indignant when you're exposed as the liberal fraud that you are. Have you no shame ? Of course not, if you did, you wouldn't be a liberal like your idol Willard.

When the Republicans nominate Conservatives, they have my vote. When they nominate Socialists, liars and frauds, they have my wholehearted opposition. Willard isn’t fit to serve as dogcatcher.

You’re making this far too complex.

I side with those Americans who chose to rebel against the King of England in pursuit of their freedom. You side with those who remained loyal to King George III, and who were content to remain his subjects.

The rest of the history lesson is extraneous. One either did, or did not, make a principled stand at that time.

When I called out another poster for being a “Loyalist”, I was referring to the fact that they appear to willing to lay aside whatever conservative principles they might have, in order to elect someone who sports an R on their blazer, but essentially plays for the other side.

That is all.

Romney is NOT a patriot. EVER.
He raises taxes. He lies.
He lies. He attacks conservatives.
He protects Obama.
He attacks conservatives.

Stop comparing PATRIOTS to the author of
RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE.

_____________________________________

I dont side with anyone...

I was appalled when I found out my ancestors had been Loyalists...

until I studied up on exactly why they would be...

Besides their swore loyalty to England the country that saved their Huguenot family from dying in France..

But loyalists were the Conservatives of their day...

and many of them became Loyalists because they just wanted to farm and feed their children and were forced into choosing by rebels who attacked them and wouldnt let them be...

Like a Loyalist said when asked about the tyrant King George...

“Im not concerned about a tyrant three thousand miles away...

Im concerned about the three thousand tyrants just one mile away...”

Meanwhile, we’re in the fight together again...

just as our families were before the troubles...

Im right now not as concerned about the tyrant six hundred miles away in DC...

Im more concerned about the 600 tyrants one keystroke away on my computer...

You must be reading me wrong, friend. I've never compared that quisling liberal to any patriot, except by way of extreme differentiation.

Having someone who can beat Obama is thanks enough for us.


when did that happen? Mittens has a chance. But something tells me he will blow it.

Also, even if it’s just a small part of the right wing base votes NOTA or 3rd party Mittens will loose.

I don’t want either of them to be president.

I know you’re not interested in reason.

You’ve made that clear when you say you don’t want either Romney nor Obama to be president.

But I think Romney has a better chance of beating Obama than the guys we were left with at the end.

Nothing funny about the comment. Funny is people who will vote for any abomination solely because of a party label and twist themselves into contortions to “morally” justify it. Amazing that one single execrable President can cause so-called self-described Conservatives to jettison their beliefs and principles to go running to an equally execrable opponent. Actually, more sad than funny.

Who said I was not interested in reason?

The only reason people think Romney can beat Obama is because they where TOLD he could.

I look at his record and Obama’s and I am left wondering. Why should I vote for Romney? He is Obama.

I personally think Obama will beat Romney like a rented car with insurance. Romney will try to be “above the fray” and will leave the “sensitive” issues out.

I see 2008 playing out all over again.

Well it is official, after 2 decades of working hard for the GOP, they have pushed me out. I feel used. Now to work on getting a real conservative party going strong. To hell with Mitt Romney (he is already headed there) and the GOP.

Well, thank you for that info. I had no idea since Romney 'took Texas' as if he was the only one on the ballot. At least I could have voted for Santorum had I been a Texas voter, if nothing else than to show my disapproval of Romney.

Since the establishment rammed him down our throats, because he was touted as the 'only one that has a chance to beat obama', he damn well better win.

It’s not like she hid what she was. I’d rather have open leftist Democrats posting here (a few, not en masse) than trojan horses, leftist Democrats pretending to be Republicans telling us how “Conservative” they are.

A lot of people here are backing Obama and proud of it.

they call it something like being true to their conservative goals or something.

Meg, did you get a breakdown, or were the vast majority of the votes for Romney because any other choice was meaningless?

We have our primary in Colorado in late June. It was already decided. WE HAD NO VOICE. Nor did you in Texas. The Republican Establishment decided it for us. What a FARCE!

FYI, Meg. Got my Colorado Primary mail-in ballot today and there is not even a ballot for the presidential office. Just 3 down-ballot races. That’s it.

While I was laying in my bed doing a sleep study last night, I remembered, all Colorado does this year in the presidential is have our caucuses, where we took a non-binding presidential poll, and Santorum took Colorado! However, the delegates to the State Convention in May voted in the national delegates, who made their commitments to whichever candidate they chose. So the uninvolved voter got no closer to voting directly for the presidential candidate than the caucuses in February.

The reason this happened was because when Colorado got the RNC to move our real primary from August to June, the caucuses would do the presidential poll and there would be no presidential primary in June, but as I said, it would be the national delegates for whichever candidate to the national, elected by the state delegates, which I was one. But, Santorum dropped out just before our State Assembly, so I was left undeclared, because I refused to support Romney delegates and all I could do was support the Newt delegates, but Newt was also being pushed out by the establishment.

So, in the end, we get a Marxist/Muslim/Illegal-Alien which is a riddle wrapped in a mystery, covered by an enigma, or a very liberal Republican and the Ship of America will not turn around but just, at best, slow down on its course for the cliff into the abyss.

BTW, did you hear him declare the White House as "My white house" in 'his' (everything is 'his') press conference yesterday?

No, I didn’t hear that. I can’t stand to listen to him.

The only reason I heard him say that was because one of the conservative talk show hosts started the clip so fast, that I could not get to my radio ‘off’ button before I heard the torture of that OBSCENELY ARROGANT voice. The good thing about it is that lots of people I have talked to heard it and are disgusted with it.
