Thanks, Florida. Thanks for nothing!

This just in from fellow talker Michael Graham...

What--Screwing up the 2000 election wasn't enough for you people?

Thanks. Thanks alot.

Assuming there is no shocking revelation or health issue, the GOP nomination is over. Conservatives need to start practicing the phrase "Nominee presumptive John McCa....."

Sorry, I can't say it. Not yet.

But it's true. When the campaign comes here to Massachusetts on February 5th, I'll proudly cast my vote for any option on the GOP ballot other than You-Know-Who, up to and including Ron Paul. But it will be a futile gesture. Mr. "1/3rd Of The GOP Primary Vote"--who lost among Republican voters again in Florida--is going to be the Republican nominee.

He's going to win the big, left-leaning states on Tuesday. Huckabee will campaign in the midwestern and southern states, denying Romney the one-on-one contest for GOP voters that Captain Amnesty would almost certainly lose. The result: More wins on February 5th for He Who Must Not Be Named, and fewer wins for Romney.

Forget delegate count. Florida has launched the one ship that Romney's money and Rush Limbaugh cannot stop: The U.S.S. Inevitable. It's gonna happen. Even if there were a realistic pathway to stop him, the media have seized control of the process now and are declaring him inevitable. Every win he gets on February 5th will be magnified by the media, every loss marginalized.

He is, after all, the favorite Republican of the New York Times.

So it is over. Finished. In November, Republicans will be sending their most liberal, least trustworthy candidate to take on Hillary Clinton--perhaps not more liberal than Barack Obama, but certainly far less trustworthy.

And the worst part for the Right is that McCain will have won the nomination while ignoring, insulting and, as of this weekend, shamelessly lying about conservatives and conservatism.

You think he supported amnesty six months ago? You think he was squishy on tax cuts and judicial nominees before? Wait until he has the power to anger every conservative in America, and feel good about it.

Every day, he dreams of a world filled with happy Democrats and insulted Republicans. And he is, thanks to Florida, the presidential nominee of the Republican Party.

And on that note, I'm off to climb into a bottle of Bushmill's.

Thanks to those geniuses in Florida, it's going to be a LONG nine months.

Well said, and I agree completely. We were infiltrated at our Republican primaries, and our VP wanna be Governor endorsed McCain over the countries best interests.

Hopefully, the Republican's in the Super Tuesday States watched the Republican debates tonight, and saw who was the true Republican and who was the business as usual RINO in Congress, which has an 11% approval rating, and got us in this current economy crisis.

Change. Yes we need change. From a true Republican in Forida.

Who moved the Florida primaries back to 29 January. Now instead of the New York snowbirds voting in the Fall, both in NY and FL, now your letting them in the vote in FL primaries, head back to NY for Spring and vote in the NY primaries. I know... Rudy had that theory... but it didn't work.

We play Third world politics here in South Florida. Romney was ahead of McCain in the polls, before the Cuban mafia endorsed McCain. The 4 Cuban power brokers here, told the exiles to vote McCain because Romney would have proposed trade with Cuba/Castro. Why do you think McCain was in little Havana the day before the elections. To seal the deal, and give his winning speech. Ain't no Governor Crist endorsement.. Just us, Mel, and the gang. We have experience rigging elections. Who do you think were going to support?? Tom Tancredo?

John McCa.... from Congress promised us illegal immigrants (my friends), we would get a rebate too, to stimulate the US economy. All we had to do was vote for him in the primaries. The fix was in. at the (good ol boy, uhh, girl, Congress) I'm going to use my rebate towards my Z-Visa next year. Si?

This just might be a good thing. All these RINO's are now coming out of the closet to endorse McCain. Mel Martinez, Charlie Crist, Rick Keller, Rudy Giuliani, Arnold S.; we already had Lindsey Graham, Lieberman, and the other RINO's endorsing him. I'm just waiting for John Edwards to endorse him too! The former Governor of Florida who was a true Republican endorsed Romney.

This is the chance to rebuild the Republican party, the way it once was. We now have Clinton, Obama running for the Socialist party. McCain for the Democrat party. All we need now is for a true Republican to step forward in March and run as an Independent, and lock the closet door before Giuliani and the others can crawl back in!

Now after typing all this... The thought just came to mind. Wouldn't it be a blast if Jeb Bush could be talked into running as an Independent! Could you imagine! A Republican running as an Independent against two Democrats. Ronald Reagan would be laughing in his grave.

Next debate I would like someone to ask John McCain this question. "Since about April 2006, Cuba and China have been negotiating a deal for Cuba to drill for oil off the coast of Florida, slant drilling from Cuban waters, and the oil will be refined in a former Russian facility in Cuba, and resold on the world market; Senator McCain, since you and the others in Congress have twiddled your thumbs and done nothing to stop this, or allow for US Companies to drill for our oil, what will you do as President to stop this? Maybe make it a multiple choice question.. (A) Bomb Cuba (B) hire Chuck Norris to kick Kim Jung Ill's ass, (C) immediately raise the price of a gallon of gas by 50 cents, to help reduce the effect of global warming, (D) sign an executive order allowing for US companies to drill for oil off the coast (which is already to late)

Another article from the Rigzone (your gateway to the oil and gas industry) "China may drill for oil off the coast of Florida". This shows the area to be drilled off the Florida Keys.

One last Reference. The Havana Business Journal. "China and India to drill for Cuban oil off the Florida Keys in Gulf of Mexico" Need to modify the question to include "our friends" in India.

Sorry to blob up your blog PC, but this really concerns me, but probably nobody else.

You people voting Super Tuesday better wake up. It is obvious the McCain nomination is a set up by the liberal media. Their gal is Hillary, and will do anything it takes to have her elected. Of course they are saying only McCain can beat Hillary. They have been building him up, and as soon as he is the official nominee, they have 25 years of him back to his foot soldier days, with tons of negative material. He is the only candidate they can destroy. They have nothing on Romney, other than he is a mormon, but that didn't work.

McCain is stupid and nose nothing about the economy. A perfect running mate for his VP is Donald Trump! With their tempers, and Donald's expertise they can bankrupt the US in 4 years, and we can start over with a "0" deficit. It'd be ingenious, just like Donald and his casinos. Besides, our good ol' boy Governor Charlie Crist is bringing Las Vegas casino's to the family friendly, touristy state of... Florida! (yeah, yehh, yehhh, go charlie!!!) Charlie told the people of FL he would never approve casino's, and that's why a lot of people down here voted "fer him, you no". Fulled us again.. I think it's that slick law firm, Morgan, and Morgan, slip and fall jus call, we sue you don't win , than that's ok don't pay.. Charlie's Lt Goveronor, Jeff Kottakamp, uzed to work with John Morgon, and is a laywer too. I think therein Charlies pants pockets.. Charlie (I call him Chuck, but he don't like that) He might make a great VP for McCain, but I prefer Donald over Charlie.. Being from Orlando, and all... I kind of like the name Donald, fer some reason, you no.. Yep, Juan McCain and ol' Donald, thed be a good team. Did you know that Romney guy is a Mormon... whooo, he might be a little to honest or something. Beside's he probably no's more about the economy than Juan and Donald put together. But, my heaven's a mormon.. Let me tell you a secret.. they wear special underwear.. not boxer's like you and me and Buddy D.. Can you imagine.. naw.. I really wish Jeb would run. ya'll know Jeb, dont'cha? He uzed to be a the Goveronr down here. Can you believe he endoresd Romney over McCain. Think he nose something I don't and he aint' tellin? Sure wish Jeb would run fer President I'd vote fer him in a heartbeat over any these other fulls. MAybe he'll be an Indianpendant candidate for President. wehhh, thats a lot of tiping... Gonna go grab another bud, and call er a day.

I for one am disappointed with the direction this election is going, and I fear for the future of our country. As a Conservative Republican, in addition to what my candidates are saying, I like to look at who the left-leaning media is trying to thrust upon us. It gives me a better idea of who I don’t want – if the media likes him, I usually don’t want him. Why do they try to sway us? I suspect that they figure the apathetic voters and those who are undecided will vote for the person they think the party wants – based on what the media tells us rather than what the GOP is actually saying.

In the beginning they shouted that Rudy Giuliani was the favored son of the GOP. The same guy who was anathema when he handed the NY Senatorial election to Hillary Clinton… redeemed only because of his cool head after 9*1*1. But that didn’t work, so next the liberal media tried to force Mike Huckabee upon us, saying that he was the favored son. But the preacher had no shine about him and quickly alienated voters so that there was no way he stood a chance of winning the hearts of the GOP base despite his Christian heritage or funny quips.

Currently those in the liberal media are raising the banner for John McCain, unquestionably the most liberal Republican in office today, who only a few years ago talked of switching parties over to the dark side. It is little wonder why Bill Clinton said that John McCain and his wife are very close, for they are very like minded. When John McCain ran against George W. Bush for the GOP nomination several years ago, there were left-wing web sites that encouraged their followers to switch their voter registrations over to the Republican party so they could vote in and presumably manipulate the GOP primaries to get John McCain on the ticket. Why? Because they believed that Al Gore could beat John McCain, but that he probably couldn’t defeat Bush. They were right, and thankfully we’ve been Al Gore-less for nearly 8 years.

And then you have Mitt Romney, a man that was attacked from the left and the right and forced to defend his religion, a man that the media has spoken ill of, and a man whom they obviously fear. Why does the liberal media try to steer us towards John McCain, the weak horse in the race? Because the weak horse can be beaten more easily than a strong contender. And worst case scenario, no matter who wins the race, DEM or GOP, they have a liberal in office that they can work with rather than someone who will stand up for American values despite what this misleading poll or that misleading poll might be saying.

As for the Demonicrats, not a one among those still in the race has ever run or managed anything, nor has either ever held a real job, and they’re each less qualified to run this country than any Wal-Mart assistant manager. Neither candidate can boast of any accomplishments of their making because quite frankly there is none to speak of. I believe that either of the two candidate are capable of taking us to the brink of disaster for their lack of experience and ‘say whatever the crowd before me wants to hear’ mindset. But of course, like true Demonicrats, they'll blame everything bad that happens during their term on the Republicans, while claiming any good that might be accomplished as their own. Just as Bill Clinton likes to claim that he ‘balanced the budget’ during his term in office, but in fact it didn’t happen until after the GOP took the House and forced Bill Clinton to balance the budget under Newt Gingrichs’ Contract With America.

As for the Republican candidates... can someone please tell me why Ron Paul is still in this race - aside from the fact that this is the most attention he's ever had paid to him in his lifetime? While admittedly, he has a few good ideas, the man is a bit off center with reality and stands no chance on Gods green earth of ever becoming president. Let go Ron, go home and enjoy the rest of your life. And then you have Mike Huckabee, a man who started off well only to shoot himself in the foot by showing that he was not above the slime that he claimed his opponents wallowed in. He does not stand a chance unless the two legitimate contenders were simultaneously abducted by aliens. While I’m sure that he too enjoys the spotlight and being a somebody, I’m beginning to think that his hanging in there is only to assure that Mormon Mitt Romney does not get into the White House, because many delegates that would go to Huckabee would revert to Mitt Romney.

We are all well aware that the country is in a recession, even if our government is oblivious to that fact. And because of that, we need someone in office that will assure that we won’t go down the tubes like Russia did. For those who've forgotten what Reagan did: Russia was not defeated on the battlefield, they were defeated at the bank.. Sen Orrin Hatch recently called Mitt Romney an economic genius. Others have said that there’s nothing Mitt Romney has ever laid his hand to that did not prosper. As Romney himself stated, 'the people elect Governors to run the country because a Governor has already demonstrated that they can manage people. Everything you have in a state you have in a country only on a larger scale, whereas senators and congressman do not manage anything and essentially they just make laws and hold down a chair somewhere.'

We need a man in the oval office who knows how to handle money and how to manage people, not someone whose only claim to fame is that he was a POW some 40 years ago. I'm almost expected to feel dirty for feeling this way, but here goes... Thank you for your service John, now what have you done for us since then? Very much like John Kerry, John McCain also can’t seem to get through a public appearance without bringing up his past war experiences. We appreciate that you served and that you were captured. Many of our brave soldiers of little renown faced that and more. We’re glad you’re safely home now. Can we move on?

Let’s talk about McCain’s recent attempts at greatness. How about the McCain-Feingold bill? John, you seemed quite content to stifle our 1st amendment rights with this bill, while now you’re saying you were simply misunderstood. What has changed since then? Oh yeah, you’re running for the White House. Your stab at the 1st amendment would have crippled talk radio where many find they can still get the unadulterated news that our mainstream media is keeping from us. If you’re wondering why talk radio does not support you now, perhaps they are having flashbacks of what you tried to do, or visions of what a McCain Presidency will be like.

What about the McCain-Kennedy plan to give amnesty to illegal aliens through the ‘Z’ visa? This bill would have allowed illegal aliens to stay in this country forever without becoming citizens, and would have given them access to all the services that American taxpayers have paid their whole lives for. Oh, and for those who don’t know, it would also award most every one of them access to ‘EARNED INCOME CREDIT’ on our tax forms, which translates to nearly $5,000 a year for every low income family. Let me see, with 20 to 30 million illegal aliens here now, how many families will that translate into when it comes time to cut those large government checks (I’m guess-ti-mating an additional $45 billion of our tax dollars just for this freebie, not counting welfare, food stamps, work-mans comp, SSI, free medical, free education, free school lunches, free cheese…)? So what’s changed your view of illegal aliens Senator McCain? Oh yeah, now you are running for the White House and want the America First patriot vote.

Then there is the McCain-Lieberman bill that was ready to attack our 2nd amendment rights. Tell us John, if I am forced to buy a trigger lock and forced to have it on my weapon, will you pass a law stating that the home-invader must give me ample time to find the key in the dark and remove that lock so that it will be a fair fight against such a ruthless criminal? The McCain bill would’ve even made it a crime for a father to take his young son out target practicing without the boy carrying a permission slip. McCain also voted to enhance the Brady bill, voted for the Schumer amendment, the Clinton gun bill, and has generally voted to restrict gun owners rights with every chance he’s gotten. So what’s changed your position on gun rights now John? Oh yeah, now you’re running for the White House and want the gun owners support.

It’s clear that John McCain most often sides with the liberal Demonicrats, and by all appearances he is one of them. All a person has to do is to look at the co-sponsors of his bills, and then look at how he votes on most every other issue – it’s almost always against those in his own party. He is a Demonicrat just as sure as ‘hold on to your lifejacket’ Ted Kennedy is.

Mitt Romney is clearly the best choice to lead this nation in a time such as we are now facing. If Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul would drop out of the race there might be hope for him, but as it is that will not likely happen and with endorsements from the ACLU, every left leaning Republican out there, and no doubt some Demonicrats, John McCain will most likely win the GOP ticket. Could he beat Hillary Rodham Clinton or Barak Hussein Obama? Not likely. And yet, if he did somehow win, would we notice any difference? Not Likely.
