Newt Gingrich’s Ongoing Candidacy Draws Ire of GOP Establishment
“…Gingrich has decided to dig in, campaigning this week in North Carolina and Delaware and mapping out a shoestring strategy to get to the Republican convention in Tampa… Establishment Republicans say they’re ready for Gingrich to get out of the race and warn that anything he does to damage the GOP now will haunt him to the last days of his career. Gingrich himself told | Read More »
Can this get any funnier? Romney Sells Inauguration Access, Nine Months Early! [redacted]

This is not a request. - Moe Lane] http://www.buzzfeed.com/bensmith/romney-sells-inauguration-access-nine-months-earl I am astounded not only by the arrogance, but also the haste to have himself *deemed* the Republican nominee.
Nothing to see here, move along
“…Romney has a huge problem with the conservative base of the GOP,” Phillips said. “He had better do something about that ASAP or he won’t have to worry about that moving to the middle nonsense. Without the GOP base, he is a lost cause…” http://dailycaller.com/2012/04/13/tea-party-leader-warns-romney-dont-expect-us-to-campaign-for-you/ There is nothing to get excited about with a Romney nomination…just more of the same tired politics-as-usual in Washington, while | Read More »
Romney fails in Colorado
From the Denver Post: “The momentum was painful for Mitt Romney supporters, who had assumed when Santorum dropped out of the presidential race this week they’d have a much easier time in winning Colorado’s delegate and alternate seats to the Republican National Convention Instead, some of the Santorum’s supporters united with Paul’s backers to form the “Conservative Unity Slate” to win a slew of delegate | Read More »
Correction made, but The Force is still NOT with Romney
First, I would like to extend a sincere thank-you to my detractors. You were quite correct…I did make an error. In my first post on the subject, I incorrectly typed in a value from the wrong cell in my spreadsheet. Instead of Romney needing 663 hard delegates, he needs 608. Other than a miss-read, my calculations are still correct. Now I don’t know if Romney | Read More »
The numbers are NOT with Mitt
Mitt Romney must win over 60% of all remaining hard delegates to secure the GOP nomination. Surprised? 19 states still need to be heard from, and of those states 869 hard delegates are available at the state and district level (discounting the 37 total delegates available between Indiana and Arkansas, which have proportionality rules only a democrat could love). State and committee GOP delegates number | Read More »
Better put some ice on that, Mr. Cain!
Is Mr. Cain being accused of raping or murdering anyone? No. Is Mr. Cain being accused of fathering multiple children outside of his marriage? No. Is Mr. Cain being accused of taking lewd photos of himself and sending them to young women? No. Is Mr. Cain being accused of visiting a prostitute so frequently that he had his own customer number? No. Then what is | Read More »
Silk purses out of sows’ ears
McCain raises prospect of military option in Syria “US Senator John McCain raised the prospect Sunday of possible armed intervention to protect civilians in Syria where a crackdown on pro-democracy protests has killed more than 3,000 people. “Now that military operations in Libya are ending, there will be renewed focus on what practical military operations might be considered to protect civilian lives in Syria,” McCain | Read More »
Establishment Republicans and the Smokescreen of “Income Disparity”
Sounding more like Obama than a Republican House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor said this past Sunday on Fox News that The Rich must: “…actually put their money to work to create more jobs so that we can see a closing of the gap.” “We know in this country right now that there is a complaint about folks at the top end of the income scale, | Read More »
Republicans are in the process of giving away the farm yet again!
So who are our candidates? Bachman Cain Gingrich Greenspon Huntsman Johnson Karger Martin McCotter McMillan Miller Moore Paul Pawlenty Roemer Romney Santorum Wuensche I haven’t even heard of some of these folks, and thus cannot comment on those individuals. But of the ones I am familiar with (Bachman, Cain, Gingrich, Paul, Pawlenty, Romney, and Santorum), Mr. Cain seems to be the best-qualified because of his | Read More »
