The Agony of De-Romney...Yes, It IS Terminal!

I admit at the outset...Ron Paul didn't caucus as I had hoped he might. However...you can spin last night ANY WAY you want, and you come up with one, and ONLY ONE outcome.

While the enormous winner of Not So Super Tuesday was once again, Barack Obama, the Biggest Loser was CLEARLY, Mitt Romney.

Yes...Romney did "win" Ohio by a single percentage point. Now...for the bad news...

He still lost IN OHIO, to the Gingrich - Santorum combination, BY FOURTEEN PERCENTAGE POINTS!

He couldn't muster better than a 60-40 showing IN VIRGINIA, in a head-to-head matchup WITH MOSES PAUL.

He was TRASHED in Tennessee AND Oklahoma by Santorum ALONE...and when you once again throw in the Gingrich vote...Romney is back at roughly the TWENTY-FIVE PERCENT numbers which he couldn't shake earlier in the cycle...against now a roughly SIXTY-FIVE PERCENT or MORE showing in favor of Gingrich and Santorum combined. The numbers in Georgia bear out the same levels of support.

In states where it counted...especially from a general election perspective...the religion issue shot Romney right in the ass...and The Magic Boxers couldn't stop the bullet. Exit polls in Tennessee, Georgia, and Oklahoma reaffirmed that Mormon is Mormon, is Mormon...any way you package it. And even in the home of that "MAGNIFICENT" 1% win (Ohio)...Mike DeWine WENT PUBLIC with the statement that "Ohio voters CAST RELUCTANT VOTES for Mitt Romney".

You COULD write for days about last night...if you wanted to...about what each of the ten races meant. 

However, as I noted yesterday...Massachusetts meant nothing. Virginia SHOULD have meant nothing...BUT, when you were POLLING AT SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT against Ron Paul...and you BACKED INTO a 60% showing...by grabbing off a few more of the last 1% of the vote count...this truly is the beginning of the end.

In fact...while Ron Paul didn't WIN ANYTHING...that 40% showing in the 1 on 1 with the Poster Boy for the 1%...was about as big a win for The Open Conventioneers, as was Romney's Ohio Adventure, for himself.

Ron Paul did, what Ron Paul has done, throughout the entire race thus far. He did it with second place finishes in four states, IN FOUR REGIONS of the country. Paul re-established the notion that he actually HAS a message that resonates with enough of the republican party, that for the first of his multiple attempts at the nomination...the party will have to either incorporate his issues into the platform, or be legitimately concerned about his name appearing at the top of SOME OTHER PARTY'S TICKET, in November.

Newt...well...Newt won where he should have won...was made out to be Santorum's Bag Boy EVERYWHERE ELSE...and will now be forced to win BOTH Alabama, AND Mississippi, BIG TIME, and with big numbers...or he will be FORCED to hand the Anti-Romney baton over to Tricky Ricky.

UNQUESTIONABLY...in 2nd Place to Obama for the night...was Rick Santorum. Other than the 12% finish in Romneyville East...and the 17% total in Romneyville West... Santorum DOMINATED Romney, or was A) within striking distance of Mitt, and B) when packed with Gingrich...CRUSHED Mitt IN EVERY OTHER CONTEST!

Talk ALLLLLLLLL you want about the 1% Ohio "victory". The truth is...Romney will not be in a position to outspend Obama TWELVE TO ONE...ANYWHERE...including Ohio. Romney will not have an on the ground organization which dominates Obama in the way in which it dominates Santorum. Santorum COULDN'T GET ON THE BALLOT IN VIRGINIA due to organizational issues. Not even America's Asshole, Joe Arpaio...will be able to keep The President off of any ballots...anywhere.

IF YOU CAN'T GET RON PAUL, RICK SANTORUM AND NEWT GINGRICH OUT OF A PRIMARY RACE...

How are you going to beat A SITTING PRESIDENT?

And, what in God's Name, would you do to this country...if you did?

Yes, every TV and other punidit not part of Fox News and not Part of the Romney Campaign spoke of the problem that last night's results showed...namely, the inability of Romney to shut the door on THREE OF THE LEAST WORTHY OPPONENTS THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY COULD EVER FIND.
So, I'm not saying much "new" in that sense. However...I said it yesterday, last week, last month, and at the start of this campaign.

ROMNEY's "PROBLEMS" are of the type and kind THAT NO AMOUNT OF MONEY CAN REPAIR!

1. He is NOT a Christian...in the eyes of ANYONE, OTHER THAN OTHER MORMONS. and, as long as OTHER CHRISTIANS...see Mormonism as, yes, I'll say it...A CULT...Romney will make the Solid South as porous as it has been since before Lyndon B. Johnson introduced the Civil Rights Act of 1964. And...to the degree...I'm not even sure that the addition of Tricky Ricky as his RomneyMate...would fix the problem entirely.

2. HE IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE. You can tell the reactionary right that you're going to put EVERY AIRCRAFT CARRIER off the shores of Iran...Obama KILLED YOU with ONE SENTENCE, just yesterday...on what was supposed to be your BIG DAY.. Romney has NO IDEA what being a Commander in Chief is all about...and the Aircraft Carrier bullshit sound bite spoke VOLUMES to that effect. You can say what you want about Barack Obama and his foreign policy, but when he speaks, about Iran, Syria, Egypt, any one of The Stan's, bin Laden, Somali PIrates (which we often forget to mention)...or any other one of the world's trouble centers...he speaks with courage, conviction, and hate it all you want...HE IS FAR MORE RESPECTED...and in some cases even far more FEARED...than George W. Bush EVER WAS. In elections, or in war, Bush shot from the hip. Obama is far, far, far more cold and calculating. And, in both of those arenas...Romney has shown himself to be a complete and total Ass Clown.

3. With the exception of those areas in which you have had to flip and flop like frying bacon in order to attempt to create a brand that doesn't exist...ROMNEY IS MORE OF A MODERATE AT THIS POINT...THAN THE "SOCIALIST" he claims occupies the White House. Andrea Mitchell's statements about Obama "FEARING" Romney...are...and please make a note of this for future reference...

...COMPLETE AND TOTAL BULLSHIT!

In THIS NATION...

AT THIS TIME...

UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES...

Barack Obama DOES NOT FEAR SOMEONE...who, if he wanted to, he could defend against by saying..."HE'S JUST LIKE ME"...AND I HAVE THE EXPERIENCE THAT WON'T GET US ALL KILLED!

Yes...As Romney tracks far right, Obama will once again go as Populist as it takes to re-secure the Progressive wing of the Party without losing the Center, or even the Center-Right.

HOWEVER...

What Obama CAN"T HANDLE...in this Nation, at this time, under these circumstances...would be a Santorum/Gingrich/ REAL RONALD REAGAN...who COULD RE-IGNITE "THE REAGAN DEMOCRATS...AND WHOSE WHOLE CAMPAIGN would be based on the notion that...

OBAMA IS NOT LIKE ME...AND...

HE'S NOT LIKE YOU, EITHER!

Santorum and Gingrich can't completely sell that idea because one of them is full of shit and the other is batshit crazy. ROMNEY can't sell it, because...THAT'S NOT WHO HE IS...AND...

The ONE THING THIS PRIMARY CAMPAIGN CYCLE HAS MOST CLEARLY DEMONSTRATED IS...

...even republicans know this.

SO...my republican friends...let's all enjoy KANSAS...MISSOURI...ALABAMA, MISSISSIPPI...and yes, The President's HOME STATE of Hawaii, over the next two weeks. At the end of that two weeks...let's then see how much closer Santorum and Gingrich's delegate total is to Mitt...how many more racing stripes adorn the Magic Boxers...and whether you still want to spend A BILLION DOLLARS on a General Election Campaign...or just throw in the towel and and offer that Billion to a privately funded deficit reduction campaign...or, maybe start a fund to help Tar-nada victims in Alabama and Indiana. At least there, you wouldn't be pissing that Billion down the drain...and it might actually result in something good coming out of it.

Trust me, my republican friends...if Mitt Romney can't draw SIXTY PERCENT OR BETTER...AGAINST EVERY COMBINATION OF RICK SANTORUM AND NEWT GINGRICH...

AND CAN'T COME CLOSE TO GETTING EVEN THIRTY-THREE PERCENT IN ANY SOUTHERN STATE...

...the main course at your post-nomination Victory Ball...will be ROMNEY ON TOAST...

...which I guess one might say is a little redundant, even this far before that "party" is started.
