Romney Looks for Big Florida Win Against Defiant Gingrich


Mitt Romney looked for a big leap ahead in his quest for the GOP presidential nomination as Florida Republicans voted Tuesday, while Newt Gingrich vowed to fight on no matter the result.

“Doing well in Florida is a pretty good indication of your prospects nationally,” Mr. Romney said Tuesday at his Florida campaign headquarters in Tampa.

Across the state, at a polling station in Orlando, Mr. Gingrich promised: “This is a long, long way from being over.”

Mr. Romney, who spent nearly $7 million on television ads in Florida and has built up a significant lead in the polls, hoped a decisive win in the state’s primary would lend an unstoppable momentum as the nomination contest soon spreads out across the country. His advisers believe that Florida may have presented the last real threat to his claim on the nomination.

    The report Florida!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Bobseeks says:

    It looks like the GOP is set to commit suicide with this mormon, RINO degenerate. If the USA survives another four years of maobama, we need to begin working on the replacement of the GOP in hopes that something can be salvaged out of what was once a great nation.

  3. rosco2 says:

    Bobseeks, you sound like the typical "degenerate" persona, we've all had to encounter with from time to time…

    Get used to it poncho—because, very, very "likely" Mr. Romney will be the GOP nominee.

    You sound like a bigoted person as well. Inherited quality? Or, simply a natural talent you've acquired?

    • Bobseeks says:

      It is good to be criticized by scum such as yourself rosco, it shows that I am on the right track. You must be a lieberal because lieberals like to equate telling the truth with bigotry. Romney is a blasphemer, liar, lieberal, and a hater of the truth of the Bible. Your idea of a degenerate is one who tells the truth which makes you a contemptable scumbag. The GOP will die if romney gets the nomination, bank on it because there are enough of us who realize that a mormon blasphemer is no better tham maobama the malignant.

      • SixthNephi says:

        Sorry you feel that way Bobseeks. I think you are painting Romney unfairly. He will be FAR better than Mr. Obama. As for you Bible comment, I am sure you and he would agree on far more about the Bible than you would disagree. Take the ten commandments for example. I don't understand why you call Romney a liar – worse than Obama? Really?

        • Bobseeks says:

          Really Sixth – the mormons teach that Jesus is the product of fornication between GOD and Mary, they teach that the Bible is corrupted and had to be corrected by the lies of joe smith the con man, they teach that GOD was once a man who evolved into a god, they teach that we can all become gods.In short, they teach all lies and try to hide behind the Bible. If you had even the slightest knowledge of the spiritual AIDs called mormonism you would understand why I call romney (and all mormons) liars. Romney is just as evil as maobama and he will be the end of the GOP if he runs for president. You are obviously very ignorant of what mormonism is sixth so you need to go to http://www.equip.org to educate yourself as to what romney really is. Don't let your dislike of maobama lead you to voting for a lying disciple of satan.

        • rosco2 says:

          Bobseeks has apparently either lost his mind permanently, or temporarily insane. If you want to "truly" know about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) go to "their" web site: http://www.mormon.org

          It's sad how some people seem to "fall apart" when their candidate/s don't win & then resort to the crazy rhetoric spoken by mr. bobseeks above…

        • slickmick says:

          Rosco2 what you are asking people to do is go go to the chief of liars , ( http://www.mormon.org )you have been deceived by these liars and you think they can con everyone, Do you not know that when people know the truth, they will not trade it for a lie ,You never knew the truth so you were easy money.

        • rosco2 says:

          They certainly don't call you "slick" for no reason at all do they?
          I know the truth. And the truth has set me totally free…
          How can someone like you be honest, when you're calling others, who you've never even met, liars & cons?

          You may want to reload that 12 gauge shot gunned tongue of yours there slickmick-

          I wish you the best, however—

      • rosco2 says:

        You know Bobseeks, I believe you. I believe you "do" like to be criticized, just as clearly as you enjoy dishing out criticism. There is only ONE big problem with it guy–you sound like the every old day bigot & TWIST your verbiage with obtusely exaggerated untruths. You know it. I know it. "Most" others also know it !
        For those few who don't know it–you can always go to the source: The official web site of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Often called Mormons) @ http://www.mormon.org

        To all of you normal people out there, have a good evening : – )

        • Bobseeks says:

          Mormon.org is nothing more than mormon propoganda; it has as much truth as maobama's campaign website. People, don't desert your principles – Romney is an anti-Christ and a RINO. If you want a nightmare scenario imagine millions of believers deserting a GOP that has abandoned its princiiples to embrace a satanic degenerate like romney. We cannot afford another four years of maobama and that is what we will get if romney is the GOP candidate. Why do you think the scum of the democrats want romney to run against maobama? Answer: Because they know that there will be little difference between a romney or a maobama presidency. Wake up, don't be fooled by these mormon liars.

        • SixthNephi says:

          Bobseeks, with all your ranting I've forgotten. Who DO you suggest we vote for then? Isn't that what this article is about?

        • SixthNephi says:

          By the way, you seem to indicate you believe in the Bible and are a Christian, yet your performance here is so very un-Christ-like. Your behavior is more like the Legion that Christ cast out, not Christ himself with the sinners. Christ taught "Be ye therefore perfect, as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect." (Matt 5:48) Isn't that the same as becoming like God?

      • upaces88 says:

        Bob, Romney has admitted that he is like Obama! They are shoving Romney up our …. where the sun doesn't shine. A few days ago, he transferred all of his $$ to a Cayman Island account. He agrees with Obamacare…
        he is just a lighter skinned Obama.
        The Obama Administration wants him as well, it seems — the Media.

  4. rosco2 says:

    Go ROMNEY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Bobseeks says:

      Go to hell romney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • SixthNephi says:

        Oh, I see. You're not really a Christian.

        • Bobseeks says:

          You obviously have no clue of what a Christian really is fool. A Christian stands up against lies and liars, something you obviously don't do. You are willing to support the lesser of two evils – you are a pragmatist and no Christian.

        • upaces88 says:

          Sorry, Bob, I had "mis-read" your comment and thought you "liked him." I was just waiting for you to defend him in any way; and I was going to pounce! LOL

        • WeeToddEdwards says:

          Pretty funny when the whole christian religion is based on a lie. For example, Christianity is largely based on pagan rituals. If those pagan beliefs and rituals had been protected by copyright, Christianity wouldn’t even exist. If you take the time to dig into the roots of Christianity, you’ll encounter various theories that Christianity’s teachings were largely assembled from pre-Christian myths and that Jesus himself was merely a fictional character pieced together from earlier mythical figures.

        • Roger says:

          It's not funny when you are allowed your opinion and swerve over to advocate violence against Christians.

          You did make this comment.

          Poor wee wee.
          Isn't it about time for you to go to your liquid lunch again?

      • upaces88 says:

        Okay, Bob, what is it about Romney that you do like?

        • Bobseeks says:

          Nothing, absolutely nothing. He is the lesser of two evils only to those who are willing to abandon their principles just because he isn't maobama. I believe that he is just as evil as maobama.

  5. Mari says:

    Conservatives it is not over before it is over. Obama is DONE! That is our goal. WE cannot live another 4 years of his twisted administration. I do not care who is your favorite. Please stop picking each other apart. Romney is not my pick. If he is on our Repbulican ballet I will vote for him. We all know that the worst we may have as a Repblican candidate is hands down better than anything Obama can do. WE have to get obama out of office. Our newly elected Republican, whoever he may be, will move "rightly" to our values. We will make sure of it!

    • Bobseeks says:

      Forget it mari, romney is just as evil as maobama and GOD will not bless a nation that elects a lying blasphemer like romney to office. A ticket with romney on it will be a ticket to the graveyard of politics for the GOP. Mormonism is a sick and perverted religion – go to http://www.equip.org for the truth about romney and the mormons.

      • upaces88 says:

        I agree! A couple of comments above you — I think I misunderstood you…Sorry. Too bad I can't delete it.

        • Bobseeks says:

          That's ok; all's well that ends well and I hope that the primaries end with romney disgraced and defeated, never to rise again.

  6. Red says:

    Gingrich runs poorly against Obama. Romney can defeat Obama, because he can draw the independent voters. The race is basically over. Time to quit nit picking and lets get behind our candidate and usher Obama out of the White House.

    • Bobseeks says:

      And usher another satan in? You people have no principles, you are pragmatists and fools. Romney will lead the GOP to a massive defeat as enough real Christians abandon the GOP to avoid supporting a disciple of satan that the GOP will crash and burn. If the GOP can't do better than romney, it deserves to fail.

    • slickmick says:

      Red, Obama and Romney is one and the same They are both liars, Their agenda and course for this country is the same,there is no hope for this country with either one of these devils

    • slickmick says:

      RED who told you Newt runs poorly against Obama???What is pitiful is Florida, A lot of people wanted Florida to be a winner, but they sold out to the same people that put a big hurt on them. ( BIG MONEY )

    • 2WarAbnVet says:

      Romney is basically McCain 2012, a weak uninspiring candidate who will create indifference among Conservatives. He represents the “go-along-get-along” Establishment Republicans who’ve put personal power ahead of principles for decades. Romney’s primary selling point is his supposed “electability”. But, so what? Even if he won it would not benefit the nation to replace Obama with Obomney.

  7. rosco2 says:

    I won't be replying to you anymore "Bobseeksforsomethinghedon'tgot", as you are not only vindictive, but you lie profusely. Again, those looking for what Mormons really believe as Christians: http://www.mormon.org

    • Bobseeks says:

      Once again, there is as much truth in mormon.org as there is in a maobama campaign ad. Read the Kingdom of the Cults or go to equip.org for the truth. Or, if you have a strong stomach and a strong faith, read old joe (the con man, adulterer, and pervert) smith's collection of lies called the book of mormon. Stand up and demand that the GOP produce a man of principles and faith, not a worthless lesser of two evils like romney. And rosco, I won't be quitting until every mormon liar is exposed for the GOD-hating devils they are.

  8. ricbee says:

    No matter what he wins by he cannot be the nominee or the GOP will flop & drop from the face of the earth. The TEA party & others will arise in it's place.

  9. upaces88 says:

    Red, I want to see Obama and Newt in a debate….Newt will eat him for lunch!
    ROMNEY IS OBAMA –the all white version. Haven't you researched at all?

  10. slickmick says:

    Bobseeks you got the demons squirming, Sixth Nephi and Rosco2,They will live and believe a lie till they die, They seem to think they will ague with GOD on Judgement day,But we listened to joe joe smith & bishops,and joe's angel maroni.and read the book of morons daily.

  11. Bobseeks says:

    I will pray that those few here who are true conservatives will prevail over the RINOs, blaspheming mormons, pragmatists, and other forms of human waste in the primaries and that the GOP once again becomes the home of true conservatives and GOD-fearing Christians. If it doesn't, I will be the first in line to shovel dirt on its coffin. Think about what another four years of satan being in charge will do to this country before you cast a vote for his disciple romney/maobama. Good night folks.

  12. Red USA says:

    Romney is another Obama. The Dems want Romney to run, it's quite clear. All the polls showing a good match up between Romney and Obama can be manipulated. It's too early for these kind of polls. How is Romney going to differentiate himself from Obama? They are going to paint him as the $250M dollar man who pays 15% in taxes and has no clue how the working class works are what their needs are. The established Rinos and the Dems both want Romney :-( BTW: What puzzles me is who is voting for this Romney in all these primaries? Was Florida an open primary where Dems and Independents can vote and skew the results?

    Romney's nomination automatically assures us four more years of Obama. Remember McCain and Dole?

  13. 2WarAbnVet says:

    Have you ever visited a zoo and noted that when the monkeys become upset that tend to fling poo?
    Romney reminds me of these monkeys. He has flung more poo at his Republican contemporaries than any candidate in my memory. He is as much like these monkeys as a human being can be without swinging from trees. Unfortunately for him, if he does become the Republican candidate, he will find that he’s an amateur when it comes to Democrats. When it comes to throwing crap they’re the real professionals. In fact, lies, obfuscation, treachery, misrepresentation, and political destruction are the primary weapons at their disposal. Good luck, Mitt!

  14. DoubleM says:

    I would find it very hard to vote for Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich for president of the United States of America. I will not vote for a RINO. I will never vote for Barrack Obama like some of YOU did in 2008.

  15. Cheryl Lynn says:

    It is sad that so many attacks are being slung. It is both sides, although Nuke said he wanted to run a clean campaign. Romney baited him into it. Just tell us what your are going to do going forward and stop the mud slinging.We want our country back.I blame allot of this on the Republican insiders and open primaries. Only Republican should vote in Republican primaries. Independents don't know what they stand for and Democrats are totally liberal.
