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!


POINT MADE!!!! IT IS CLEAR THAT MITT ROMNEY IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE THAT CAN AND WILL DEFEAT BARACK OBAMA IN THE FALL!!!!

***ELECTIONS DO NOT LIE***

RED = ROMNEY
GREEN = GINGRICH

SOME EXIT POLL QUESTIONS…THESE ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT GIVES YOU THE REASON WHY PEOPLE VOTED FOR THE CANDIDATE OF THEIR CHOICE….


Over the past three years, the president has taken a bad economic situation and made it worse. Despite hundreds of billions in so-called stimulus legislation, our economy has continued to struggle. Now the president has chosen to postpone the creation of 20,000 jobs — and the potential for up to 250,000 more — to give himself political cover with interest groups important to his reelection. If the president is serious about job creation, he will immediately approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline and put 20,000 Americans to work.

Brad Anderson, CEO of Best Buy, added that Obamacare makes it impossible to achieve even basic certainty about future personnel costs:

“If I was trying to get you to fund a new business I had started and you asked me what my payroll was going to be three years from now per employee, if I went to the deepest specialist in the industry, he can’t tell me what it’s actually going to cost, let alone what I’m going to be responsible for.”

You would think a piece of legislation more than a thousand pages long would at least be clear about the specifics. But a lot of those pages say: “The secretary will determine …” That means the secretary of health and human services will announce the rules sometime in the future. How can a business make plans in such a fog?

John Allison, former CEO of BB&T, the 12th biggest bank in America, pointed out how Obamacare encourages employers not to insure their employees. Under the law, an employer would be fined for that. But the penalty at present –about $2,000 — is lower than the cost of a policy.

“What that means is in theory every company ought to dump their plan on the government plan and pay the penalty,” he said. “So you don’t really know what the cost is because it’s designed to fail.”

Of course, then every employee would turn to the government-subsidized health insurance. Maybe that was the central planners’ intention all along.

An owner of 12 IHOPS told me that he can’t expand his business because he can’t afford the burden of Obamacare. Many of his waitresses work part time or change jobs every few months. He hadn’t been insuring them, but Obamacare requires him to. He says he can’t make money paying a $2,000 penalty for every waitress, so he’s cancelled his plans to expand. It’s one more reason why job growth hasn’t picked up post-recession.


The deal that was just struck over extending the Payroll tax cuts is only good for 2 months. The Republicans wanted to extend them to all of 2012 but Obama being the wonderful President he is only wants them to last for 2 more months then he can raise taxes back up.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday he would tell his caucus to get “noisy” if he were trying to game out the dispute on a payroll tax cut with President Obama.

Asked about the standoff by a voter, the Republican presidential candidate also called the senators “arrogant” over their refusal to negotiate.

“I would have all of my members on talk radio back home demanding the senators come back. And I could say ‘How can the senators arrogantly go home.”

Gingrich, who has previously said he doesn’t know what John Boehner is going through because President Obama is a much more difficult leader than former President Clinton was to work with, said Republican House “ought to win the argument” and the only way to do it would be to be “noisy.”

“The idea that a one-year tax cut is somehow a losing proposition and a two-month tax cut is somehow a winning proposition — I mean, it takes Washington, and frankly it takes the bias of the elite media — to get here because I think the Senate has been totally irresponsible and the president has been irresponsible and any normal that looks at the bookkeeping chaos of a two-month cut, it’s just mindless.”


The reason Republicans swept the house of representatives & the Governor races was because of the Obama/Reid/ PELOSI failures….

When Al Gore needed support for his liberal global warming agenda, he turned to Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich to film an advertisement together. Filming an ad with Nancy Pelosi is another example of Newt Gingrich being an unreliable conservative and an unreliable leader.

Gingrich has since said that that ad, done four years ago, was “stupid” and a “mistake.”

GINGRICH: Everybody who was profiting from them [Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac] should pay the cost of having failed.

Including “historians” who made $1.6 million from them?

Team Romney is also sending around this exchange from his appearance on Fox earlier today, in which Romney addressed Gingrich’s hit-back that Romney should give back the money he made “bankrupting companies” at Bain Capital.

MARTHA MACCALLUM: “[Will you] give back all the money that you took in the bankruptcies, and the lost jobs and all of that. What is your reaction?”

MITT ROMNEY: “Well, unfortunately the Speaker is way off on that. In my enterprise, we had the occasion to help build tens of thousands of jobs. And he doesn’t understand the economy, if he doesn’t understand that sometimes businesses succeed and sometimes fail. The four enterprises I’ve led have all succeeded. We invested in hundreds of different entities — over a hundred different entities — not all of them succeeded. But to suggest that there is something un-American or something wrong about investing in enterprise that ultimately doesn’t succeed, bespeaks an extraordinary lack of understanding of how the economy works. And by the way, should he return the money that he got from Freddie Mac? That follows his own comment. He said anyone who profited from Freddie Mac should give the money back. Well, he profited $1.6 million from an agency that helped bring down the entire economy; he ought to give it back.”

Gingrich’s hit-back was a flop. Brit Hume led the way in describing it as the kind of thing we tend to hear from the left.
