Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “Hey mama, weer all RINOS now” edition

Good morning, everyone – I’ve had to scrounge up extra blowers for the iso chamber – the tops keep exploding off the storage drums from the gaseous crazy fumes building up and you never know when…CRIKEY!

Everyone OK? I think I soiled my iso suit, but there’s no point in worrying about it now, as what’s outside it is considerably worse than what’s possibly inside it.

Let’s start with –Newtie – QUITTER!!

Breaking: Gingrich replaces campaign manager, lays off 1/3 of staff — to focus on the convention
Hotair ^ | 03/27/2012 | AllahPundit

Posted on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 10:15:26 PM bySeekAndFind

Clearly it’s his campaign manager and the staffwho are the problem.

Alternate headline: “Gingrich finally approaching thefifth stage of grief.”

It’s largely a strategy of necessity: The former House Speaker is a distant third in delegates, behind Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. His campaign-finance report for February, released last week, showed more debt ($1.55 million) than cash on hand ($1.54 million).

He doesn’t have a revenue problem, he has a spending problem.

DeSantis said the former Speaker will continue to visit states with primaries, but will have a less intense campaign schedule. DeSantis promised that the campaign will be “more positive and ideas-focused,”

as opposed to “Delegate-focused”.

eschewing attacks on Republican rivals. The aide said the campaign will be more digital, focusing on low-cost communications tools, including informational videos, social media and the web…

DeSantis elaborated on the announcement in an email: “Newt 2012 is transitioning into an organization appropriate for winning a big choice convention. This big choice convention phase will be focused on two goals. 1. Affecting the national dialogue to show that Gingrich is the most capable of defeating Obama, by leading on issues that put the president on defense – like Newt’s $2.50 Gas Plan;

Batshit

and 2. A parallel communications strategy directly to the delegates…

“Furthermore, the fact is the more than a million more people have voted against Mitt Romney than for him. We believe that if Governor Romney is unable to secure 1144 by the last primaries, he will be unable to do so at the convention where the vast majority of the delegates are conservative. That creates and environment at the convention where Gingrich can emerge as the one candidate who can unite social, economic and national security conservatives (a fact which is borne out by polling).”

Like I said in theearlier Gingrich post, that last paragraph is pure fantasy. If you’ve reached the point in a convention floor fight where, for whatever reason, both Romney and Santorum are deemed unacceptable, why wouldn’t you roll the dice on a dark horse outsider? You’re much better off with someone like Christie or Paul Ryan who’s young, appealingappalling,

FIFY.

superb on the seminal issue of fiscal reform, and yet to have their national image defined than you are with High-Negatives Newt. Passing over the guy with the most delegatesand the guy with the second-most delegates means you’re thinking way out of the box on the nomination, which means there’s no reason to limit your choice to the people who are running. Although I guess choosing someone who hasn’t held elective office since the 90s and who can’t seem to win anywhere except his home state and the state next doorwould qualify as “way out of the box.” Way, way out.

I don’t know, guys. I’m starting to think maybe he really believes in this ludicrous convention idea. What other explanation is there?

He’s been taking advice from Sarah Palin?

Exit question: Why on earth would he cite Romney’s vote total as relevant to the delegates’ calculus when Newt himself ismuch closer to Ron Paul’s total than to Romney’s?

Another traitor out in the open. Nobody who endorses Willard Romney the open socialist will ever get my support, and I will never, under any circumstances, vote for him.

I just can’t believe there are so many people out there who would vote for the Republican equivalent of John Kerry just because of the letter in front of his name. Look, I think everyone has held their nose and voted for a RINO at one point or another. But a socialist? A Marxist Republican who signed off on universal healthcare, the focus of our ire?

Anyone who votes for Romney is no less an ideological sellout than he is.

Finally, Romney gets tea party supportThe Washington Times ^ | March 19, 2012 | Ralph Z. Hallow

Posted on Wednesday, March 21, 2012 11:41:01 AM byRobinMasters

The organization that ignited the tea party as a national mass movement gave Mitt Romney perhaps his biggest victory yet, deciding to drop its opposition to his candidacy, a top executive in the group told The Washington Times.

FreedomWorks, which organized the Sept. 12, 2009, mass demonstration on the Mall, says that while it will not give an explicit endorsement, the time has come for Republicans to unite around the former Massachusetts governor and focus on defeating President Obama.

“It is a statistical fact that the numbers favor Mitt Romney,” FreedomWorks Vice President Russ Walker told The Times on Tuesday. “We are dedicated to defeating Obama and electing a conservative Senate that will help Romney repeal Obamacare and address the nation’s economic and spending challenges.”

Mr. Romney has been winning a majority of delegates and has more than twice the number that former Sen. Rick Santorum has, and he continued that run Tuesday with a victory in Illinois.

Initially, the Tea Party decided to work to influence the GOP because the Democrat party was a lost cause and a third party option was too difficult.

Now, the GOP is once again calling the shots and the Tea Party going along simply because they don’t want to lose?

Who’s influencing who now?

So true. Sort of surprised the moderator allowed the continual negative toxic comments from these guys, horrible.

FR is short staffed these days – $90,000.00 a quarter doesn’t go as far as it used to, you know.

Also, Jim Rob banned most of the moderators.

Probably did their share of damage on various boards. People can only take so much of that crap and they give up.

It will be 3rd party in all likelihood.

I have NEVER failed to vote GOP, even for McStain and Bush 1. Not this time. I see ZERO difference between Myth and Obama, except that the damage done by Obama will be blamed on the left, not the right. Let it be so.

I will NOT vote for Romney under any circumstances.

  7. MapleStreet says:

    “…so many people out there who would vote for the Republican equivalent of John Kerry just because of the letter in front of his name.”
    Letter in front of his name? I’m familiar with the indication of party affiliation and location after the name. But vote for “M” in front of “itt Romney”? Or they were talking about Nugent because of the “T” in the front of his name? (not to mention, family values Nugent, according to Wikipedia, has had 2 wives and still 3 of his 8 children were out of wedlock).
    Love your picture of the horse and cart, but also reminded me of a bad joke about a farmer teaching his livestock Cartesian analytic geometry (put De-carte before de horse – UGH – well you did talk about delegate calculus).
    I’m wondering if the freepers may have taken the Romney quote about guns out of context (Yeah, a freeper taking something out of context. Imagine.) What he said would definitely apply to certain groups of firearms (e.g., assault automatics) to all but the extreme right. Why do I keep thinking about the South Park with Jimbo explaining that one can always shoot an animal in self defense – interpreted as being within sight – just yell that it is attacking you and shoot. And if Zimmerman can use the self defense claim, why don’t they claim that Trayvon Martin was in a public place, not bothering anyone, and simply acted in self defense (even though he reportedly ran despite the “no retreat” law)? Especially a teen followed by a creepy man.
    BTW – did you see that a Birther group has sprung up to doubt the birth certificates of all the repubs – especially Romney as Romney’s father spent a long time in Mexio (Just ignore the Math that he came to the USA many, many years before Romney was born).

    You see the undercurrents of sanity in Freeperville. People are coming to accept that Mitt will be the nominee and the RINO hatred can’t possibly outweigh the hatred for a black, Muslim, usurping Kenyan with a Harvard education and a New World Socialist Blueprint ™.
    I see a schism coming. JimRob is going to be faced with a critical dilemma: No matter how he treats the general, he risks a large part of his base. All we have to do is pop some popcorn and smile.
