For Romney, winning ugly is still winning

Mitt Romney had a good night in Illinois, defeating Rick Santorum as expected, 47 percent to 35 percent. He still failed to win a majority of Republican votes, but the showing adds to evidence that eventually, some day, Romney will become the GOP nominee.

Ron Paul was third with 9 percent; Newt Gingrich came in last with 8 percent, confirming in his mind that the people of Illinois are frankly, fundamentally too stupid to recognize transformational genius when they see it.

The next vote comes Saturday in Louisiana, where Santorum is expected to do well. Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C., vote April 3, and five states, including delegate-rich New York and Santorum’s home state of Pennsylvania, vote April 24.

Looking at the schedule, it is now quite conceivable that Romney can have it all wrapped up, in reality if not in quite in delegate count, by the end of April.

Even though Romney did not win a “majority” of the votes in IL, when he becomes the apparent nominee, there is little doubt that most conservatives and Republicans will turn out to defeat Bozo and send him back to Chicago. It is inevitable that Bozo will get about 40% of the vote because of his loyal base but that won’t be nearly enough. White middle class working America, a group that Bozo feels is beyond redemption and not worth his time to pander to, will make the difference, as well as independents who are sick and tired of this clown even though they might have voted for him in ‘08. There is a totally different electorate out there as compared to ‘08 and Bozo and his gang are about to find that out.

Santorum will win Louisiana, and if he wins both Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, that will give him all the rationale he needs to go on to May when a number of Southern, conservative states vote- West Virginia, Indiana, Arkansas, North Carolina, Nebraska, Kentucky, and Texas. Santorum will likely win all of these if he is still a factor at the time. That’s the scenario I’m hoping for- Romney still spending millions and desperately trying to lock down the nomination into June.

Mitt Romney Proposes $8 Trillion Welfare Program for Defense Contractors

Despite current Pentagon budgets that have hovered at the highest levels since World War II and 13 years of steady growth, the administration’s latest plans would only reduce spending at the Department of Defense by 1.6% in inflation-adjusted dollars over the next five years.

Still, compared to his main Republican opponents, Obama is a T. rex of budget slashers.

After all, despite their stated commitment to reducing the deficit (while cutting taxes on the rich yet more), the Republican contenders are intent on raising Pentagon spending dramatically. Mitt Romney has staked out the “high ground” in the latest round of Republican math with a proposal to set Pentagon spending at 4% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). That would, in fact add up to an astonishing $8.3 trillion dollars over the next decade, one-third more than current, already bloated Pentagon plans.

Nathan Hodge of the Wall Street Journal engaged in polite understatement when he described the Romney plan as “the most optimistic forecast U.S. defense manufacturers have heard in months.

Mitt 2012 baby!

I was just curious, now that the parameters regarding SHOPS (Small Businness Healthcare Options Program) have been finalized, which will give small business owners with 50 or less employees the ability to purchase Health Insurance from state exchanges, along with tax credits equalling 50% of the premium, how many of our business owners still want to see the HCRA repealed?

godless heathen – “Our business has 54 employees. Looks like the street for 5 peeps.”

So you think that scrapping the whole program or firing 5 people is better than waiting for the program to come fully online?

Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP)
Beginning in 2014, exchanges will provide coverage choices under a Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP). As described in the final rule and in an earlier HHS factsheet, the program will allow employers to choose the level of coverage they will provide and to offer their employees choices among qualified health plans within that level of coverage. This will let employers offer plans from multiple insurers but receive a single bill and write a single check.
Exchanges will decide how their SHOP is structured. The final rule provides flexibility with regard to:
• Size of small businesses that can participate in a SHOP. States can set the size of the small group market at 1 to 50 or 1 to 100 employees until 2016. In 2016, employers with between 1 and 100 employees can participate in a SHOP. And, starting in 2017, states have the option to let businesses with more than 100 employees buy large group coverage through the SHOP.
• Structure of choices for small businesses. Exchanges can choose to offer employers additional ways to provide coverage, including allowing their employees to choose any plan in all levels of coverage or a traditional “employer choice” offer of a single plan.

“I gather he thinks he is doing quite well. Earth to Newt..”

He actually is doing quite well. The strategy is to remain in the race to deny Santorum delegates. He gave it away last night in an interview. It’s not certain that if he drops out all of “his voters” will go to Romney. The estimate is that they will split about evenly between Romney and Santorum. By staying in, Gingrich denies Santorum access to the voters that might switch to him.

Those “millions of women who vote” are smarter than that. Every time liberals get worried about their political future, they trot out ” they’re going to take away your Social Security”, or the old favorite, “they’re going to take away your Medicare”. Now it’s “they’re going to take away your birth control pills”, even though it is doubtful that Republicans would be successful in banning contraception in this country or would even try to do so. Roe is firmly implanted into our society and there is not a single Republican president that would try to supplant this law. But it always makes good political commentary, not to mention the votes it generates, to scare the drawers off of those who don’t have the brainpower to think for themselves.

-laws in multiple states mandating a vaginal ultrasound probe in ALL cases of abortion, regardless of medical necessity or how it happened
-Multiple health insurance plans that charge women more just because they’re women, which is outlawed in 2014 by the ACA, which the GOP opposes wholesale
-Bloc opposition to the Violence Against Women Act
-Opposition to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
-Women still getting paid less than their male counterparts
-SCOTUS deferring to a lower court decision to throw out a combined lawsuit of women against Wal Mart
-Viagra, a pill meant only for sex, is perfectly ok to be covered by health care but the GOP oppose any attempt to cover contraceptive pills
-HUNDREDS of anti-abortion legislation attempts, mostly successful, on the state level AND federal level

Since Mr. Bookman did say anything inflamatory about the GOP this morning, it was interesting to read the commentary of his peanut gallery.

In usual fashion, you Soros, Pelosi, Obama lovers did not disappoint me. Carping, ridiculing, and demeaning was the theme of your left wing “civility”. Give it a rest all ready.

Although your mentor barely threw you a bone this morning it seems apparent that you all will be attacking one another like rats fighting over a crumb of bread next.

Wow! Talk about worrying over who is going to beat your beloved community activist.

but the showing adds to evidence that eventually, some day, Romney will become the GOP nominee.

… the GOP nominee for the “blue states”, that is. Santorum will be the nominee for the “red states”.

Uh oh. I smell a civil war comin’ on.

“This woman is a political activist, hell bent on turning around Georgetown’s policies”

Which policy? The one that pays for insurance that pays for contraception for their staff and teachers, or the one that wants to deny doing that EXACT SAME THING for their students?

Saying women should have to actually pay for some of our own health care is an attack on women? This is laughable.

Keep on chuckling and misstating the issues.

And pay no attention to the loathsome comments and reprehensible philosophies that keep on coming out of con mouths in Idaho and Virginia and Georgia and EIBville and….

Again, millions of American women are not amused at your party’s open tolerance for misogyny and quasi-fascism…

Kay: “…enter the debate to fuel the fires of a non existent problem just to arouse those who might vote. ” Sort of like a presidential candidate, huh?

I’m not a fan of Obama, but I would like to get your opinion of the SHOPS. Good or bad?

“Then it kept growing, largely because it was fueled by liberals in the press and in the WH. All of a sudden, “Republicans want to take away your birth control pills”. Then the Democratic shill, that Fluke chick, inserted herself into the debate and fueled the fire even more.”

So the WH and the media convened a panel of fat, white, old men to testify before congress about this?

Really?

Where are the jobs??? (and some facts to back up your lies?)

Funny thing… ever since the treasonous and unpatriotic snakes of the GOP started trying to talk gas prices into rising… they’ve gone down by about 15 cents a gallon and seem to be holding there… good try nut bagsss… it would seem you have no more control over gas prices than the president… despite what the Newtster says…

Also… what a breath of fresh air… having a daughter of the president travel to mexico for a social outreach program with her school… anybody remember the Bushdrunk twins???… Of course not, you all seem to have stricken the Bushdrunk years from your collective/selective memories…

================================
You mean Mormon housewife/houseWIVES……..In the Temple, Mormons make commitments in what they call “celestial unions”…that last into the afterlife on to the Planet Kolob…(I’m not making this up..!!!)….Plural marriage is accepted as long as “it is commanded by God”…..Every man is essentially his on “Christ”…..his own mediator between man and God…..but the deal-breaker for me….Mormons don’t believe in Hell…just an unpleasant place on the Planet…..It is VERY important to me that politicians believe in Hell…!!!!!

What the hell is wrong with home schooling your children?

For starters, teaching them that evolution and global warming aren’t real and keeping them away from anything that might show them evidence that they absolutely are. And hell, you wouldn’t want them to think SCIENCE is anything other than god magic…. Think as you’re told, not for yourself!

kayaker -”What the hell is wrong with home schooling your children? There are no Catholic women priests either. 2nd class citizens?”

I wasn’t talking about the Catholic Church, which in my opinion has just as an archaic view of women as the LDS church does. However, having grown up in Utah, and having first hand knowledge of the LDS Churchs views of the place of women in the world and seen the effects of home schooling, I will stand by my original post. Unless of course, you grew up in or around Brigham City and were witness to something different than what I described.
