Romney secures front-runner status with New Hampshire win, looks to take momentum into South Carolina
Mitt Romney stormed out of New Hampshire Wednesday with a historic achievement under his belt, having scored back-to-back wins in the first two nominating contests, and vowing to take that momentum into South Carolina.
The former Massachusetts governor was able to pull off a commanding victory in the New Hampshire primary, winning with 39 percent of the vote with 95 percent of precincts reporting.
To hear the pundits talk Mitt Romney is the inevitable winner with an insurmountable lead in delegates. In reality he has won only 20 delegates, less than 2% of the 1144 needed to secure the GOP nomination. Unlike the Democrats, the GOP does not use “superdelegates,” but the party establishment is doing everything they can to rig the outcome in Romney’s favor.
The Republican leadership should be panicking right now, but they’re doubling down instead. Mitt has been running for POTUS for six years and yet his numbers haven’t budged since four years ago. I could go on and on for days about Mitt’s weaknesses, but I’ll stick to two – Bain Capital and Romneycare.
Obama plans to run against Wall Street (see: OWS) despite being the biggest recipient of Wall Street donations. What’s worse than a Wall Street puppet? A Wall Street investment banker like Mitt Romney! Thanks to Romneycare, Mitt is the only GOP candidate who lacks credibility in attacking Obamacare.
2012 looks to be a golden opportunity for the GOP to retake the White House. The economy stinks and so does the incumbent. Do they honestly believe that Mitt Romney is their best possible candidate? Seriously?
It seems to me that the Republicans don’t really want to win. With Obama in office they get everything they want and the Democrats line-up to help them. Don’t forget, Obamacare is a Republican idea.
The Republicans pretended to oppose it, it’s unpopular, but the Democrats are getting the blame for it. As long as Obama is in office it will stay in place and the GOP can keep complaining about it.
Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too.
