New Hampshire Primary Tweets of the Night

Posted by  ▪  January 10, 2012
Mitt Romney won the New Hampshire primary.  While the results are not final as of this writing, it looks like he comes in at 37-38%, with about the same total number of votes as in 2008. Here are the tweets of the night, bitter and otherwise. Tora Tora Tora Tweet: Reality Sucks Tweet: Good Enough…

New Hampshire primary results

Posted by  ▪  January 10, 2012
89% Reporting Romney 39.1% Paul 23 Huntsman 16.9 Gingrich 9.5 Santorum 9.4 —————————– Interesting: Gingrich was the target of 96% of negative super PAC spending between Iowa and N.H.  But Newt’s the angry nasty one, rights? Romney’s argument on electability was an important factor with voters. Romney is on target to get about same number of votes as in 2008,…

Pre-debate, I mean pre-primary results Open

Posted by  ▪  January 10, 2012
Some things to mull as we await the close of the polls in New Hampshire at 8 p.m. Eastern.  A new results post will go live at about 7:30 p.m. Eastern.  I’m going to handle it in a manner similar to the NY-09 night, not a Live Event but an update…

Swimming with Bain

Posted by  ▪  January 10, 2012
When even Rush Limbaugh buys into the “criticising Bain is criticizing capitalism” meme, we have lost as a party.  There is a huge difference between using government powers to impose value judgments (a la Obama) and making value judgments in evaluating a candidate’s background. It’s over. We’ve discovered a way to lose the general…

I’m not going to sit here while critics of Bain badmouth the United States of America

Posted by  ▪  January 10, 2012
Any criticism of Bain, much less a criticism of how our possible nominee ran the firm, is an attack on free markets and capitalism.  Or so we are being told. No, it’s not.  I have been almost alone against the chorus of “Newt’s anti-capitalist”: Bringing up Romney’s Bain problem is not “socialist” Bain drip…

If you are not on Twitter, you need to be

Posted by  ▪  January 10, 2012
Mitt Romney made a statement yesterday about “firing” people who provide him with services which has been taken out of context.  He was talking about health insurance companies, and made the point that he likes to be able to make choices. I was aware that Rick Perry’s campaign was seeking to take…

Selling out capitalism in the defense of Romney and Bain

Posted by  ▪  January 10, 2012
We don’t know all of the details of how Bain conducted its business under Mitt Romney, but we do know that in at least several instances the conduct was to squeeze out cash while leaving behind a failed company.  In many other instances Bain helped companies to grow. In a capitalist system,…

Busy day

Posted by  ▪  January 9, 2012
in politics and elsewhere, here’s some things: Be sure to check out the blog troll argument.  I think I got someone’s attention. Todd Palin endorses Newt.  I think this helps with Tea Party groups in the south, probably not much in NH.  Will Sarah endorse before South Carolina?  And campaign with the person…

Republicans should thank Newt for bringing up Bain now

Posted by  ▪  January 9, 2012
As you know, I knew this day would come.  The only question was whether it would be early enough in the primaries to make a difference, too late in the primaries, or in the general election. But the day surely was to come when Mitt Romney’s years at Bain would come under scrutiny.  After…

Imagine John Sununu in a Romney White House

Posted by  ▪  January 8, 2012
Only John Sununu, Sr. could make me like Chris Matthews. Sununu was George H.W. Bush’s Chief of Staff.  He holds a bitter grudge against Newt because Newt opposed Bush breaking his no new taxes pledge, and he convinced Bush to nominate David Souter. Sununu will be the guy whispering in Romney’s ear in the White House. Suck it…

Wrapping Mitt up

Posted by  ▪  January 8, 2012
John Podhoretz in The NY Post, It’s a ‘Mitt’ wrap, early this morning: That’s a wrap. I’m calling this thing. Unless something terrible comes out  about him in the next few weeks, Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee. If you were to analogize last night’s nationally televised GOP presidential  debate on ABC…
