People married to people with “mental problems” often stay in the marriage hoping that something they do can somehow cure the person. First thing a family member said when he saw her on TV, was she has an “substance abuse” problem. He’s helped many get help. Think he could be right. Have not heard what the daughter have had to say, have you?

If you live in South Carolina, get to the polls by 7PM. Don’t vote for Romney. My preferences are Ron Paul and then Rick Santorum.

Newt 40% (Are you sure?!!!!!!!)
Romney 27%
You’re going out on a limb... way out there...

Sure, why not, give or take a few points, I'll bet you ten thousand dollars (monopoly money)


by Jonty30:
Santorum has committed to sticking around until Florida, but if he polls under 10% in SC, he probably won’t be a factor afterwards.

I have heard that it is extremely expensive to campaign throughout Florida, plus FL is another Winner-take-all contest. So if Santorum has any cash left, he is wiser to stash it for some future election, or if out of cash, he's out of luck.

I noticed I was not on your favorite Freeper list there on your home page. You can go to to hell

Your humor escapes me, but fyi, that list hasn't been updated since 2005. Who do you support? Romney/Paul/Obama?

No, I haven’t directly listened to his daughter talk about their stepmom, Marianne. (The speakers on my computer will not work for me. Oddly, though, they work for everyone else!)

What they are quoted as saying, is that their dad and stepmom did not have an open marriage. That strongly implies that Marianne is lying about Newt’s behavior and attitudes.

Newt will make everyone else stronger...you learn lessons in a primary. It is very difficult for a zebra to change their stripes, expect Newt to melt down when he is pressed, not because what he did was bad, but because it is his nature...see Rick Perry as a typical model.

At this very moment the vote tally on FOX is within one percentage point of your numbers in each candidate’s column.

Great work....

To: Future Useless Eater; All
Gingrich Fans: There is evidence in the polls, that the ABC SLIME JOB - "Marianne", was launched too close to the SC primary for it to be effective there. But they WILL continue to POUND this story before Florida, hoping for it to take more effect there. And remember that EARLY VOTING has already begun in Florida...

So supporters SHOULD BE AWARE of these additional PBS 'facts' regarding the "Marianne" story...




The Romney/MSM/Elite(R) camp will also be DESPERATE to launch something ELSE that will stick and sink Newt in Florida within the next four or five days. They ONLY have nine slime-days left before the FL winner-take-all primary and that is Mitt's "MUST WIN" state.

We should have a count-down like they do for Christmas... (Remaining slime-Newt days till Florida)

Fox News ONLINE coverage of the SC results had three commentators who all seemed depressed because they preferred Romney.

But Ed Rollins said something interesting about Romney...

..........commentator1: Do you think that Romney could not only turn this around, but win pretty handily?
Rollins:  
I think he could. But he could also collapse. 
I think we're right at a critical point here, where he's ahh...
I mean, Here's what he's accomplished:

Having run non-stop for six years... 
and this is where he got chased out four years ago...
after THIS race, he was gone.

He got EXACTLY the same votes, 30 thousand, as what he got four years ago
after spending another ten million dollars in Iowa. 

 ........(both commentators surprised: "Oh wow! really?...")

He won his HOME state, 
that he was EXPECTED to win LAST time, 
where he had four or five houses in New Hampshire, 
and McCain basically went and LIVED in New Hampshire
and beat him there. 

He was supposed to do well in South Carolina, and got clobbered. 

..........so whats the problem for Mitt Romney?

He just doesn't connect with voters.
I mean, he's got a great resume...

..........commentator1: do you think somebody is going to tell him that?

Well, its hard to tell a candidate. 
Having been a reality-check in a lot of campaigns, its not, ah...
Its a very painful process. Its ah...
They either listen to you, or they basically throw you out of the room. 

.......commentator2: And he doesn't seem to listen very well because governor Christie made it
                     very clear, put your taxes out there, he didn't listen to him, 
                     you see his speech, and it looks like he has two black eyes, 
                     he's NOT looking well, I think this was the first time he was tested, 
                     and he didn't stand up well.

Yes and it was NEWT!! How did you feel about Newt when he was for that liberal Republican in NY who quit the race and changed her registration to Democrat? I can’t get over how forgiving folks are of the guy who gave Nancy and Algore a big wet kiss. He is a great attack dog, but what did he have to say about the Tea Pary 2 in 2010?
