Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Newt Gingrich Death Watch edition

Well, folks – other than the never-ending Freepathon, Jim (I’m all in for Newt Gingrich) Rob has been MIA for weeks now.

Maybe he’s too depressed after this:

Kibitzer, be a pal and grab some more popcorn please? Southern Beale – more wine? We’ll just watch this one from outside the iso chamber, I think.

Why do we give them 19 delegates? I mean, I can understand throwing them a bone and giving them 6, but 19 is just plain ridiculous when the GOP candidate can’t break 20% in anawesome year.

“You keep using that word…”

They make Hawaii look competitive.

“Recovering Paulisto”? If he recovered from being a Ron Paul supporter and is now for Newtie, he may wish he had stood on principle.
Or on a stepladder.

The republican party is half past dead and if we don’t get a blood transfusion ASAP, it’s over. romney will never beat oscumma in a million years. This is sickening.

I live in the People’s Republic of Maryland. Hit the polling place after work at about 1830 –the place was like a tomb.
Considering the average age of the GOP electorate, what did you expect? Mardi Gras?

I cast my vote, and I don’t mind telling you that I voted for the Newtster.
And I don’t mind telling yo uthat you threw your vote away. And you dimrods don’t have a lot of them to spare.

When it came to the Senatorial candidates I didn’t even recognize any of the names except two – one a nutcase named John Kimble – I voted against him and for Mr. Douglas. I understand Romney has projected winner in the presidential contest.

As I have said before on this forum, I will not vote for that RINO sonofabitch in the general election!

We are doomed.
You were doomed the moment you embraced The Southern Strategy as a political tool. It’s just taking longer for you to die off than I had originally thought. But you’re getting there.
Witness the death of the grand old party and the birth of a new moderate to liberal republican party vs a left-wing radical democrat party.
America will never rebound in my lifetime and this is the legacy we are leaving our children and grandchildren. Memories of a once great nation being brought to it’s knees.I don’t know which feeling is stronger…sadness or anger.

By virtue of these Romney wins (and probable eventual Republican nomination), the GOP is giving Obama his second term on a silver platter. Everyone I talk to sees it the same way. Romney is NOT anyone’s first choice and people are disillusioned with the apparent John McCaining of conservatives for the second time in a row. This is republican party suicide and everyone can see it except the elites who are forcing this candidate down our throats.

You’d rather have Santorum shoved down your throats? Yuck.

May God help America out of this potential disaster.

It appears like the electorate is starting to take a stand and make a solid choice to defeat Obama. They almost unanimously said that it is now more important to get behind a candidate soon, and to not delay or hinder the nomination.

Why do I get the feeling that’s what you wanted all along. So what’s your real name, Rove?

I don’t give a damn what you think. The problem with your side is, you were warned that supporting Santorum would guarantee a Romney win. Well, guess what…? We all lose.

I see that the Newticles and Saint-orums are still busily pointing fingers at each other over Romney’s tawdry inevitibility,
Good. Gives them something to do during the General besides vote.

To: MamaDearest

It’s high time for a third party, but the GOP talking heads in the news media will do their darndest to keep party-line Republicans in line with their usual talking points and scare tactics.

“Let’s change the GOP from within!”

Riiight. It’s not like the establishment holds the reins of power or anything.

And 17% (at best) of the electorate will magically unelect/unseat all of them and march proudly on to victory!

I love this place.

“But a third party will never win!”

Romney will never win, either, but we’re supposed to vote for him.

“But a third party will split the vote!”

Good! It’s time for the Republicans to go the way of the Whigs.

And time for “conservatives” to go the way of the Know-nothings.

What did caving to the establishment get us in ‘08?

Pandering to the screwball right via putting a simpleton up for Veep who had to be advised of the difference between WWI and WWII is now “caving to the establishment”?? Fancy that.

What did it get us in ‘12? Will 2016 be any different?

Then it is time for Romney to get out of the race. He can’t win.

I’m kinda partial to this one:



He called Obama a “dictator”, and he just now referred to Romney as an “etch a sketch”.

The greatest Santorum line was hitting Romney. He has got the crowd fired up. His bashing Obama and Romney ismost excellent.


He is also revisiting Republican Party history, its failure to win elections by nominating MODERATES—as controlled by the Leadership vanquishing the conservative grassroots. Great speech! Packed House.

When you have everyone who voted for you in that state in one room, of course it’s gonna look crowded.
But it’snot a Packed House.
Thisis a Packed House:
Just sayin.
Much more, including new additions to the RINO ranks after the fork in the road…
