    hmm wow…the campaign is probably regretting this now.

    Mitt Romney Said He Was Going to Win Alabama

    He was wrong, and it’s not the first time.

    And if it stays the same and he comes in 3rd in both contests????

      That’s a major FAIL. I can’t wait to see the crew on Morning Joke tomorrow. Serves them all DAMN right for trying to give Romney a pass while harassing the President with all kinds of nonsense over the last two days – rigged polls, nonsense about being a Muslim, gas prices..

      Sue, I love you. You just made my night-medical sweet spirit rush to the room to see what I was trying to laugh about. You almost got my computer confiscated for the rest of the week. I had to beg to get on it just for a while because I reacted to the tests badly today, so had to be put to bed.

      But I begged to get a visit with my TOD Family. My medical help is leaving, but was so impressed with our site. We are touching so many people in such personal and unusual ways. Thanks to our beautiful Chips and our TOD Family.

      You always lift my spirits, Sue. I love that’Verbal Flyswatte.” That did it. Love you,HZ

        I think Citizens United has more of an effect on smaller, more local, more obscure political races, and in campaigns focused on issues/referenda, etc. When it gets to the presidential level (and even in some big Senate races, as in 2010) — money can’t buy you love.

      Oh but Little Ricky would really have a sad if he actually won the Rethug nomination and LOST the election, including his home state of Pennsylvania. Because he would definitely LOSE Pennsylvania. WE KNOW HOW CRAZY HE IS. that’s why we booted him out of his senate seat.

    March 13, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    So, i went to the dark side known as DrudgeReport- and he was touting Mittens as having won MI and close in AL. Obviously both of those are false. I gotta think that it has to do with Mitt’s otherness (East Coast Governor and his religion). I know exit polls can be flaky, but there has to be a reason why Mitt underperforms in the South (TN,OK,MS,AL). I hope it’s not his religion. We should all judge men by their character and not race and/or religion.

  17. March 13, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    welp, Santorum wins the South! Romney has a sad.

    Has MI been called yet ? I am following the result at gopolitico and they seem a trifle bashful about calling it fro sick rantorum.

      If Jeb’s running as a Republican or as a Bush – then he’ll still lose. The only person who can win against President Obama is Michelle Obama.

    • 88 Bobfr (aka Our4thEstate)
      March 13, 2012 at 11:06 pm

      Jeb knows President Obama would treasure beyond anything to have the opportunity to put him and anything named Bush in the dust bin of history, forever as in FOREVER. Neither he or his family are stupid enough – unfortunately – to get dragged into this election cycle.

      What I truly treasure is Elizabeth Warren crushing Jeb in Nov 2016.

        March 13, 2012 at 11:45 pm

        Hi, Bobfr. You are so smart. Jeb does not want the history books to be so well written about his brother’s record, and then POB’ crushing Jeb in the same century. Just too much to write about and place in the Forever Forgotten Bin for sure.

        However, an Elizabeth Warren “crushing Jeb in Nov. 2016 would be a great one for the history books. I am hoping for “O’Malley/Warren ticket for 2016. Just one thought.HZ

      Lawrence O. told Newt’s daughter that the $2.00 gas may be the national topic but Newt is not winning. Obviously folks are not buying that big lie, enough for him to win. He will stay in the race and run on hot air just for revenge. He is a mean old ba@@@@@.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday evening that the Senate would try to conclude work on the transportation authorization bill, S. 1813, by mid-Wednesday, then move quickly to what could be a series of votes on district judge nominations.

    After completing work on 15 amendments to the transportation bill on Tuesday, the Senate has seven amendments left. But Reid said he hoped the bill could be completed with just three roll-call votes starting at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, a sign that some of the pending amendments will either be withdrawn or perhaps accepted by unanimous consent.

        You are so smart, Theo! No need to spoil your evening/night. Personally, I’ve cut off T.V. on account of my HBP. I just come here to find out the latest news. My Doc. is really impressed with the progress I am making. He thought that I had increased my time exercising. I didn’t dare to tell him that it was because I turned off T.V. news. If I watched people like Gingrich, I would be all angry and cursing my t.v. and in the process raising my blood pressure for nothing.

    • March 13, 2012 at 11:26 pm

      Gingrich is now following me on Twitter. Intend to call him out on his lies. I am also going to call out Santorum for his lies especially since he claims to be such a devout Christian.

    I was just looking at those pictures from the game again in the last post. Whenever President Obama goes overseas, the crowds greet him like the ones here. They’re all excited, and they see him as a rock star. Whenever the President takes any of these world leaders around to see his people here in the US, the crowds are more excited to see President Obama than the visiting dignitary. So, both at home and overseas, President Obama is most popular. I just find that interesting, especially given all the hype over bogus polls.

    PHILADELPHIA — President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is working to solidify support among women in Pennsylvania and other battleground states by touting benefits of the new health-care law in direct-mail ads, phone banks and grassroots events aimed at female voters.

    Though the Democrats had planned such a sales blitz to coincide with the two-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, strategists are also hoping to build on what polls suggest is an advantage among women in the wake of recent clashes on contraception and abortion rights.

    “Millions of people in Pennsylvania have already experienced the health-care law’s benefits and are seeing firsthand how reform is saving lives and saving money,” said Jennifer Austin, state press secretary for the Obama campaign.

        itgurl_29’s link today was more than a little interesting:

        Al Giordano: The best independent reputation on the Internet today announced that it will co-brand with the worst journalistic reputation on earth.

        …. The New York Times sucks the life force out of every single person it touches. And now I have to watch someone I like and admire be destroyed, slowly and painfully … they will either digest him slowly over a thousand years after stuffing him behind a paywall or, worse, turn him into a prick just like every other Timesman.

        ….. I don’t know what he’s thinking. This is not the first time an artist or rock star I’ve known took a turn toward nihilism. But, Jebus, Nate: heroin would have been a safer move!

        Good luck, Bro. I hope I’m wrong about this. And we will miss you on the outside…..


        I always respected him too, but when he sneered today at those raising questions about the obvious – and comical – GOP bias in the latest polls….. bye, bye Nate. The NYT has sucked the life – and honesty – out of him.

I imagine huge boards with tons of equations and formulas and Rainmen and someone like that guy from A Beautiful Mind calculating odds and margins of error. Boy would I love to be a fly on that wall.

        Goodnight Chips and TOD Family. I will be fine. I had a long morning of a batch of test, and almost fainted near the end, but was so grateful that I was at the hospital when it happened. Finished, ordered to go directly to bed. Did just that. Medical personal at my side, but I am an obedient patient because I want to complete all of these test and be ready for the next set next week.

        I slept. Then I really pleaded with my medical person to bring my computer to the bed. I won, but was trying to laugh, and soon someone appeared at my door, and almost took the computer away. I made it through it all. Thanks to our wonderful Lisa, Sue, Chips, and Bobfr for the comments that almost took me out with my computer. But I still love you all so much. (((((( Thanks for the Laughter))))))))

        So, please do not worry, my beautiful family. I will make it. I just want all of you to support Chips, be good to each other, and remember to come into this wonderful space with gratefulness for our beloved Chips and our wonderful POTUS. Pull from within you, the beautiful energy that will keep our space here fill will love, intellect, pride, hardwork, and much laughter. We are one beautiful family. Be kind to the energy that we support POB and each other each day. Love you all!!!!!HZ

      There isn’t any normal because they changed the rules so drastically to award delegates proportionately and have different States voting at different dates this cycle. It was all winner-take-all in ’08 so Romney had already dropped out by February.

    So, children, what have we learned tonight? Fracking the polls, outspending your competition by a factor of at least 3 to 1 on negative advertising, eating grits, and saying “y’all” won’t win you Dixie!

    OT, but just got email from son in law in China. He’s the least adventuresome in the food dept. of anyone ever—–more like the cold cereal in his tummy type. He was at this big fancy din at some big fancy restaurant and was served—–duck tongue, chicken head and feet, and fish head and feet—-all beautifully presented—-he sent photos. He’s completely traumatized and starving. He’s looking for some fried rice—-or a can of cashews.

    Karen Finney of MSNBC is depressed that Republican women voted for frothy. I don’t think that small sample in the south is going to be representative of the nation.

    Forget voter ID. This proves to me the voter IQ test just failed in the South. Southern women voted for frothy. Oh, gawd they need help badly!!

    Newt Gingrich’s southern strategy didn’t work. It’s time for Newt to go home and eat his grits.

    I love the part were they say 12% of the folks of Mississippi believe the President is a christian, my point is all those who are running around their claiming to be a christian better worry about if they are a christian. Just because you claim Jesus doesn’t mean you know him.
