2012 Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich ripped Fox News claiming that Rupert Murdoch’s network clearly favored Mitt Romney, adding that CNN was less biased in their GOP primary coverage.
After thinking he bought himself a comeback win in Maine, Mitt Romney faces another possibility that he actually lost Maine as well. A Secret recount is in effect by the GOP, but they won’t release the results until 3 weeks from now… WTF?
Jason McClure of Reuters writes……..
Maine’s Republican Party will recount votes in the state’s Republican caucus following complaints that totals from some towns were not included in state results showing a 194-vote victory for Mitt Romney over Ron Paul.
In addition, Republicans in Maine’s sparsely populated Washington County will hold their caucus on Saturday after an earlier attempt was postponed by a snowstorm.
“We have worked diligently to contact town chairmen throughout Maine to reconfirm the results of their individual caucuses,” Charlie Webster, chairman of the state party, said in a statement.
Webster had been criticized for announcing Romney as the statewide winner on Saturday before votes from all the caucuses had been counted. Fewer than 6,000 people voted in the poll, which is a so-called “beauty contest” that does not bind national delegates to back a particular candidate at the Republican National Convention in August.
A reversal of the initial findings would be a setback for Romney, a former governor of nearby Massachusetts who has been struggling to keep a grip on his front-runner status for the nomination to face Democratic President Barack Obama in the November 6 general election.
It would be the second reversal of a state’s results in the Republican race. Romney was declared the initial winner in Iowa, which kicked off the nominating race, but the final count two weeks later revealed former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum actually had claimed a narrow victory.
Jennifer Granholm is fired up about a Mitt Romney op-ed in the Detroit News that echoes his 2008 article titled, “Let Detroit go bankrupt.”
“Romney wrote so many wrong things, it’s hard to even know where to begin,” Granholm says. She credits President Obama’s intervention in the auto industry for saving hundreds of thousands of jobs.
2012 CPAC attendees try to get “hip” using Rap in one presentation. The Conservative White Rap Group “Powdered Zombies” bust out with a subtly racist tune entitled “Mr. America”.
Here is the footage from CPAC below, followed by The actual video for the song.
The Republican Party has always held itself as the party of Family Values and Conservative Politics, but we all know from their history, that it has mostly been a facade. Just look at their recent candidates for the 2012 Presidential nomination; Newt Gingrich known for having affairs on each one of his 3 wives and marrying his mistresses. Herman Cain, known for his serial adultery as well as someone who could not keep from sexually harassing his co-workers and/or employees. So it wasnt too much a surprise to find out that at the annual CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference), there are no less than 10 Conservatives seeking Gay sexual liasons during this convention. If that isn’t hilarious enough, they actually posted these solicitations on Craigslist. Check out these actual little tidbits from Craigslist ….
Now this is just creepy! Mitt Romney has his way with his dead father-in-law‘s soul. And he didn’t even buy it breakfast.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich reopens the Republican presidential race with a resounding victory in the South Carolina primary, and Fox News sings his praises as if he were the second coming of the messiah. Gingrich’s win is solid evidence of exactly why we don’t need people with his distorted value system and/or his supporters running or more specifically ruining this country. Anyone who could rally around a political criminal and insider such as Newt Gingrich, despite his baggage, and sordid past and present, simply are not thinking clearly. And what does this sat to the rest of the world, who are anxiously watching and looking toward the United States for leadership.
Certified vote totals show Rick Santorum won GOP Iowa caucuses with 34 more votes than Mitt Romney! But hey who cares.. Mitt already got the momentum from the win…. and the question of the day is… Was THIS really a mistake or just plain old cheating dirty tricks….? And if Iowa can’t count…, Why do they matter in this process?
Rick Santorum finished the Iowa Republican caucuses 34 votes ahead of Mitt Romney, but results from several precincts are missing and the full actual results may never be known, according to a final certified tally released Thursday by the Iowa GOP.
The new numbers show 29,839 votes for Santorum and 29,805 votes for Romney, according to the party.
The initial returns from Iowa gave Romney a razor-thin 8-vote margin of victory over Santorum, reinforcing the former Massachusetts governor‘s frontrunner status and giving him a major momentum boost heading into the New Hampshire primaries. Romney went on to win New Hampshire easily, allegedly making him the first non-incumbent Republican in modern history to win the first two contests of the cycle.
Now history is being rewritten, casting a shadow over the first-in-the-nation caucuses and potentially shaking up the GOP race two days before the critical South Carolina primary.
Stephen Colbert has handed control of his Super PAC to fellow comedian Jon Stewart and changed its name from Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow to The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC.
A Super PAC can raised and spend unlimited funds on campaigns as long as it does not coordinate their activities with a candidate. In practice this allows presidential candidates to distance themselves from attacks on their political opponents.
Trying to bring attention to the controversial issue of super PACs, Colbert’s PAC has so far launched a number of attack ads poking fun at Republican candidates, with a few targeting Rick Perry.
Its latest effort is a hit on Republican front runner Mitt Romney, calling him a “serial killer.” Mitt Romney has stated that corporations are people and is accused by opponents of breaking apart companies and cutting jobs, hence the labeling of Romney as a “serial killer.”
“I have no control over that ad,” Colbert told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in an interview on Sunday. “I am not calling anybody a serial killer. I can’t tell Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow what to do.” Colbert blamed Jon Stewart, calling him a “loose cannon.”
In giving up control of his PAC, Colbert also announced he will run for the position of “President of South Carolina.”
Is he serious or is the whole thing just a ruse to improve his ratings?
