Ok so I am reading all this hype about Santorum sweeping Colorado, Missouri and Minnesota last night in the make believe primaries. Let’s all 1st remember that Romney is NOT going to win every state. Also these states are “Socially Conservative” states they are more worried about abortion, gay marriage and etc… They are not really worried about the economy! Also there was a low turn out as well!


So Santorum won all 3 states, let’s look forward to the New York primary 9-1 Romney wins… They are worried about the economy not abortions. When will the far right wing of the Republican party get this? It is about the economy stupid.

With his amazing victory in Florida then the absolute stunning victory he pulled in Nevada last night among conservatives. There is no possible way the Gingrich or Santorum camp can continue to play the “He isn’t conservative enough to win” card. As we all know that it is the swing voter that wins Presidential elections. This is hard cold facts!

Common Sense tells me this:

That the Republican vote alone will not win you a Presidential election you need the support and the votes of not only a majority of the Independents but those of Democrats as well. This whole notion that we need to nominate a candidate that totally offends those possible voters is beyond asinine. I listen to Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin along with a few other host and they seem to think that we need a nominee that will spit in the face of non republican voters. This is a fatal flaw in common sense, you have to be able to work with the opposition to get things done. This is something that is currently unfolding right before our very eyes with President Obama.

Great example is listed in the poll below

Now the Republican party is made up of an array of different ideologies, What the conservative view point is they simply just want to elect someone like Rick Santorum who is super conservative and will lose to Obama in the fall by not being able to pull the coveted Independent voter. So they bite the bullet and back someone who is conservative but can appeal to that coveted voter! Newt Gingrich if nominated will lose to Obama in the fall as well. As shown in the poll above Newt is not the man. So we are left with the only candidate that can defeat Obama and after all that is our goal as Republican voters be it super conservative or moderate!

Here is the ad that sunk Rick Perry‘s presidential campaign…

Congressman Ron Paul may be a long shot to win the Republican presidential nomination, but he runs competitively with President Obama right now.The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Paul picking up 37% of the vote, while the president earns 41%. The Texas congressman joins Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann, and Rick Perry as candidates within hailing distance of the president at this time.Rudy Giuliani is another potential candidate who is considered a long shot for the nomination but is competitive with the president. The former mayor of New York City trails Obama by five, 44% to 39%.But the real story in the numbers is that the president continues to earn between 41% and 49% of the vote no matter which Republican is mentioned as a potential opponent. This suggests that the race remains a referendum on the incumbent more than anything else.Obama posts a 12-point lead over former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, 44% to 32%.Two Republicans can’t even get to 30% against the president. Businessman Herman Cain and former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, who served as Obama’s ambassador to China, each earn 28% support. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, considered unlikely to run by most observers, trail the president by seven and nine points respectively. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum trails by 14.ObamaIn reviewing the data, please note that Romney benefits from being perceived as the frontrunner. In 2004, the last time an incumbent president stood for reelection, Vermont Governor Howard Dean was the early Democratic frontrunner, and he polled best against George W. Bush.Massachusetts Senator John Kerry was always a few points behind. However, once Kerry became the frontrunner in early 2008, his numbers became as good as Dean’s.Polls conducted a year-and-a-half before an election provide a snapshot of where things are today but give little indication of what the mood might be on Election Day. If the economy substantially improves before November 2012, the president will be heavily favored to win reelection. If the opposite happens and the country endures a double-dip recession, just about any Republican challenger would be favored. If the economy stays as it is today, the race could be very competitive.A good measure of the president’s reelection prospects is his Job Approval rating among likely voters. His final vote total is likely to be very close to his final Job Approval figures.Romney leads the polls for the GOP nomination among Republican primary voters. However, it is far too early for the polls to give a sense of who is likely to emerge as the Republican nominee. In 2008, John McCain never took the lead in a national primary poll until December 31, 2007.


Election 2012: Romney 43% Obama 42%

Anyone of the Republican presidential candidates could beat Obama in 2012. Just how anyone of the Democrat presidential candidates would have beat the Republican Nominee in 2008 thanks to George W. Bush. In this case 2+2=4 not 3, Also I have seen a humungous drop in Liberal voices and bloggers. Those are mostly what you call your “bandwagon” jumpers. They seen how fast Obama and the Democrats were sinking so they jumped off and onto the Republican bandwagon which by all means COME ON WE WELCOME EVERYONE.

See most Democrats have been spending their time fighting the simple social issues like abortion, gay rights, DADT, DOMA and so forth. While the Republicans have been pounding away at the most important issues of this election cycle and that is how damn bad this Obama oppression (recession) really Is. The majority of American voters are sick of all the broken promises and lies from the Democrats in power.

Nancy “Cockeyed” Pelosi said during the mid-terms “We have nothing to worry about the American people will vote for the Democrats because they know how bad the Republicans made things” Well they actually voted opposite of Pelosi’s prediction and almost wiped out the house Democrats. The American voters sent a very loud and clear message again when they almost wiped out the Governorships in all the states except California and New Your and just look at how F&%^ those 2 states are.

Jon Huntsman has attacked Mitt Romney over his claim to Job Creations. No wonder Huntsman is at the bottom of the barrel of the Republican polls. They must really think Republicans are stupid. Huntsman has worked for Obama as the Ambassador to China and the question that should be on every Republicans mind is…IS HE STILL WORKING OBAMA?

Returning to his former hometown, Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman Jr. took a fresh swing Friday at his rival for the Republican nomination, Mitt Romney, over job creation.

Mr. Huntsman spoke to reporters after touring a high-tech consulting firm, StruckAxiom, which he said located in Salt Lake City in part because of the policies he enacted while he was governor of Utah.

“We want somebody who is able to go up against President [Barack] Obama, who actually has some credibility when it comes to job creation,” he said.

“All you need to do is look at one’s track record while serving in an executive position,” he continued, citing Utah job creation while he was governor, which was near the top nationally, and Massachusetts, which was 47th in new jobs while Mr. Romney was governor there. “Let the numbers guide you.”

The race for the Republican nomination appears to be devolving into two different slug fests. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who is betting the store on a strong showing in Iowa, has been taking shots at Rep. Michele Bachmann, a fellow Minnesotan who he has identified as the target he has to take down in the Hawkeye State. Similarly, Mr. Huntsman can only get national traction if he finishes strongly in New Hampshire, where Mr. Romney is leading.

So far, polling does not indicate the attacks have worked in either case.


The Republican National Committee (RNC) launched a new commercial on Wednesday called “Change Direction” which contrasts President Obama’s remarks on economics in 2008 with statistics on the current economy. The RNC plans to run the ad in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and New Hampshire.

Obama’s remarks are from his speech to the Democratic National Convention in 2008, and concern how Democrats view the economy.

RNC chair Reince Priebus said that the Republicans want to challenge Obama in every state.

“The RNC will be taking on Barack Obama in every state where his failed policies have hurt job creators and Americans are looking for work,” Priebus said in a statement.
