In Michigan, Romney did very well with the Republican base

February 29, 2012
By

By the numbers:

Romney won the votes of self-described Republicans by 10 points, 47 percent to 37 percent.

The fact that Romney didn’t win by a landslide in Michigan was apparently the result, in whole or in part, of mischievous Democratic voters trying to weaken him. Exit polls suggest that those voters added as much as 3.5 percentage points to Santorum’s total.

    The fact that Romney didn’t win by a landslide in Michigan was apparently the result, in whole or in part, of mischievous Democratic voters trying to weaken him the result of Willard being a flip flopping, lying RINO establishment type that true conservatives will never accept as our nominee.

    “Romney did very well with the Republican base”
    Sure, and Santorum did very well with the Dem base :)

    Yeah, feels like it’s about time for the Fat Lady to sing.

    Actually, the count of D voters in this primary was down from other R primaries. And no, it didn’t add 3.5 points to Santorum’s total.

    But so what if it did? You got a problem with Reagan Democrats, RINOs? Your boy Willard sure does, apparently. And I can assure you that Reagan Democrats are not going to vote for a lying progressive crapweasel, which is why he’s under water throughout the Midwest, South and Heartland of this country, and will get bombed in the general election. He can’t win in the Midwest.

    FYI, the number of R voters who voted “UNCOMMITTED” yesterday was fully 2/3 of Willard’s “winning” margin. Add in the votes for the other non-Big 4 candidates running, and it adds up to MORE than Willard’s “victory” margin.

    So the only people that kept Willard’s brains from being scattered across the Michigan landscape yesterday were MR. UNCOMMITTED and Mr. Buddy Roemer.

    Strong finish for this crapweasel, huh?

    Willard took Oakland County yesterday by the same number of votes he took his squeaker state plurality. And fyi, Oakland County is stuffed full of babykilling, TARP and bailout loving, global warmingist, ObomneyCare supporting, big government RINO hacks.

    Those Oakland County RINOs voted for Obama in 2008, because McLiar defeated their hero Willard for the nomination. In 2006, those very same RINOs stayed home when a conservative was running against Granholm , and let her walk back into the governor’s mansion. Those Oakland County RINOs hate all things conservative, just like their boy Willard does.

    Oakland County went Obama in 2008. I’m expecting those RINOs there to vote for him again, just like last time. Those RINOs were intruders in yesterday’s R primary, making mischief, far more than the alleged “intruder” Reagan Democrats you RINOs are complaining went over to Santorum yesterday.

    The bigger issue IMHO is this; WHY do we allow non Republicans to vote in Republican primaries? No good can come of this, but plenty of bad can and does. Giving the opposition a role in picking your nominee is a recipe for disaster for either party.

    Arizona’s primary, like quite a few others, has no such taint.

    I furiously opposed Limbough’s “Operation Chaos” in 2008, because I felt it intrinsically wrong for one party to be meddling in the other’s primary. What I see now only reinforces that view.

    And, why on earth do we have caucuses? Those make the party look bad, by eschewing the secret ballot for a public one, and also giving far more power to extremists and cranks. (you see this in Dem caucuses, too).

    Why not make every state a closed primary? Ditch the caucuses, and get rid of open primaries too.

    Willard fought for that open primary in Michigan, so no sense in this hypocritical crapweasel whining about it like he is. All RINOs support open primaries here, because they love attracting and appealing to the lefty vote, in Oakland County particularly. Willard was planning on winning those D’s and Independents, and he needed an open primary, so he had his RINO hack surrogates in Lansing fight for it last year. He’s an idiot RINO hack, and assumed that’d get him votes. It didn’t work out, mostly because Independents include a significant portion of we conservatives.

    I answer “Independent” on every single survey, as do many conservatives, I find. We don’t associate ourselves with shitstain RINO hacks. So Independents were a wash yesterday, mostly because of we conservatives in that number. Willard may have taken the “R” vote, but you have to understand the RINO shitstain composition of that “R” vote, to properly analyze and understand what actually occurred.

    Willard got bombed with conservatives yesterday. Absolutely bombed. Some of those identify as R’s, and some of them identify as I’s… and a few maybe even as D’s… but he got bombed by all of we conservatives. Check the data.

    Any primary system that excludes Willard’s base of lefties helps we conservatives, I guarantee you that much. But the RINOs don’t want that. They like lying progressive crapweasels like Willard, and open primaries help them elect them, which is why the Willards fight for them.

    Mittens is such an a@@hole he whines and now uses in ads the crossover, when he wanted the primary to be open, as most liberals like him prefer. He’s also voted over the lines himself in the past, so his outrage is hollow.

    Fact is, Repubs bought into the media “theocrat” narrative, both directly with more moderate types, and indirectly by fear Santy would be a loser in the fall, since 3 weeks passed before elections. That was enough time for Mittens to do his usual “my opp is the devil” carpetbombing tricks where he offers nothing of himself, he only tears down the other guy.

    With 3 weeks of bombs, he got lucky the herd got spooked out of fear.

    If the elections had been just a week and a half ago, Santorum wins easy.

    The whole thing would be different, and now the same primary schedule helps Mittens again, since ST is NEXT week, not weeks from now where the momentum would be drying up for him. The result is he bounces from these “wins” just in time for next week’s flurry of states.

    *sigh*

    Beyond the partisanship of this primary (it’s too late to change the rules anyway) why not, in future, get rid of open primaries and caucuses?

    And also, keep political candidates out of the rules-making process; they are ALL prone to be self-serving, after all.

  9. anonymous un-RINO on February 29, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    I’ll live with an open primary for now. Any system you pick is gonna be subject to complaints, and manipulations, and would be more costly. One way may be as good as another. RightMichigan has a pretty good writeup on this, if you hunt it down.

    My proposal would be that anybody who wants to vote must register at least 30 days before an election… every single election. You’d get rid of all the rabble that way, and dead voters. And for a primary, you’d have to register for a particular party. You’d have to show up with picture ID and register, and then show up with picture ID and vote. You could have a minimal amount of absentee ballots of course, but the absentees would still have to show up and register beforehand.

    The only problem in Michigan was Willard’s 6-year long blowtorch, particularly the last 2 weeks worth. That blowtorch bought him a tie yesterday., and he’d have likely lost pretty badly without it. But then, he’d have been out of this race long before Michigan, without that Goldman Sachs funded blowtorch. In fact, the rest of this country likely would have never heard of this crapweasel, because he’d have gotten bombed out in 2008, rather than spending his and Goldman Sachs’ cash to get his name out there.

    The result is he bounces from these “wins” just in time for next week’s flurry of states.

    I don’t think Mittens gets a bounce next week; not even a dead cat bounce

    Lots of southern states, where real conservatives and blue collar types will see super tuesday as their Little Bighorn to stop Romney. It’s their last shot. The real conservatives in the south are paying attention to what’s going on and they can see right through that transparent and plastic rino, Romney.

    Super Tuesday will not go as well for Mittens as the rinos would like for you to believe. The rino establishment ilk cannot grasp that the real conservatives from the south know exactly how to spot a phony like Romney. And, while their alternatives may be limited from the earlier process of elimination, southern conservatives will not fall for slick Willard the way that MI or AZ mormons did.

    JOB One is replace Obama.

    If we get a large enough margin of conservatives in Congress, we can set the agenda and save America even with a RINO at 1600 Penna… But Mittens is probably more Conservative than Dubya was, so we do have a bit of reason for hope…

    Every option is going to be a compromise. Get over it.

    Vote for who you want.

    Trust America? Well, you have to, so get over that, too. ;-)

    Pray the Lord gives us wisdom on Election Day.

    so much for the GOP-establishment mantra of saying he’s ‘unelectable’ .

  14. Man Coulter on February 29, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Rasmussen? The Republican leaning poll that shows a 2% margin with 16% undecided? You seriously read into this that Paul could beat Obama? LOL..

    Guys, give it up. The black man is running the country the next 4 years. No white knight can save you. This is why all your heroes bowed out, they knew they had no shot at winning this cycle.

    Not looking to kick a “black” man out of the White House.
    Looking to kick his “communist red” administration to the curb.

    And if the economy’s still in the crapper, and gas prices continue to rise, nothing can save the communist dork.

    Job one isn’t to replace Obambi with an Obambi clone, RINO.

    And Willard is a lying progressive crapweasel, and a clone of Obambi.

    If this crapweasel is the nominee, then I’m voting for Obambi. We can’t afford 8 more years of Obambism, and thus, a certain 4 years is the conservative choice. It clears the field for Walker in 2016, and it sets us up for a Tea Party driven blowout in the lame duck election of 2014. That’s the only clear path for conservative governance, if Willard is the nom..

    Sorry, RINOs, but Obambi is the conservative choice in 2012, if Willard successfully buys the nomination. We can’t risk EIGHT YEARS of babykiller love, TARP, Bailouts, global warmingism, redistributionist tax policy and ObomneyCare. I think Obambi will destroy this crapweasel anyway.
