Gingrich “Every county I carried had an increase in turnout over last time,” “Every county Romney carried had a decrease in turnout over last time.”

….”But Gingrich on Sunday put the low turnout squarely on Romney’s shoulders.

“Every county that I carried had an increase in turnout over last time,” Gingrich said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “Every county that Gov. Romney carried had a decrease in turnout over last time.”

NBC News later verified that Gingrich’s assessment of the turnout situation was accurate.”…

Sununu: Low turnout means GOP satisfied – The Hill’s Ballot Box

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/gop-presidential-primary/208805-sununu-low-turnout-means-gop-satisfied

RRD:Also Sununu believes low primary turnout is good.He isn’t alone in promoting this type of “everything is good for Romney” fantasy.See below:

AFP: Long primary battle could help Romney build support

http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hFbXSYmXahEhwADMN3TtzHmOGAZQ?docId=CNG.956cc047c755305c8ad4580183554bcc.771

…..”A drawn-out fight for the Republican nomination could work to frontrunner Mitt Romney’s advantage if he uses it to develop his campaign structure in swing states key to beating President Barack Obama in November.

That’s what happened in 2008, when Obama built a formidable organization that registered hundreds of thousands of new voters and signed up an army of volunteers during his own long primary battle with Hillary Clinton.”..

RRD:You see,Romney’s inability to “seal the deal” will help him,because it will make him create a grassroots….

Wait,isn’t the fact that Romney can’t “close the deal”(he lost overwhelmingly in South Carolina,)due to the fact that he is hated by the very people he needs for grassroots turnout in 2012?How then will their hatred of him help him to mobilize them on his behalf?And couldn’t he just turn his attention to building a grass roots operation earlier if he won the nomination earlier?
And the same was true of Obama.Obama did not benefit from having to fight Clinton.He was not harmed because of his overwhelming,(cult like)support among Democrats,but he did NOT benefit.
On a related point:If Romney gets the nomination,he will be the first to do so who DID NOT win S.Carolina in 30 some years.To put that in perspective it would be the first time that happened in my lifetime.
Of course many things have happened for the first time in my lifetime.But it would still be unusual.

But don’t worry,the anti-romney base may not THINK they will vote,&/or be energized,but what do they know.

….”Things will likely change in November, when conservatives who have rallied around calls to make Obama a one-term president have a chance to vote him out of office, said Larry Jacobs, a politics professor at the University of Minnesota.

“I don’t think you’re going to need Newt Gingrich to turn out those people,” he told AFP.

“They’re so antagonized by the Obama presidency that they’re guaranteed to turn out.”….

RRD:Yeah like in 2008,as Mccain snickered “Where will they go”.
I remember 2008 very clearly.
Most people I knew on the right argued and believed that we could not survive FOUR years of Obama,much less 8.
The problem?
It is very difficult to campaign for a ”Morale Vampire”(i.e. John Mccain and Romney).
Mccain spent much of the end of the campaign telling us how wonderful Obama was.
He was a ”good man”,”we had nothing to fear from him” etc.
And when he lost,he told us that Obama was his “leader”(& by extension ours).

How many times will Rockefeller Republicans spit in our face before November,having made themselves smugly ”secure” by the “Where will they go” chant?

If Romney is nominated it will be their opportunity to drop their veneer of conservatism and finally let us know what they really think of us.
We already see this in the gratuitous insults:

Coulter believes people who oppose Romney are not ”normal” – fightingstatism

http://fightingstatism.posterous.com/coulter-believes-people-who-oppose-romney-are

And in the gleefully sadistic condescension directed against Conservatives:

PJ Media » Resigning Yourself to Romney: A Guide for the Disgruntled

http://pjmedia.com/blog/resigning-yourself-to-romney-a-guide-for-the-disgruntled-2/

This is not the writing of someone who supports someone (e.g. Romney)because they believe he is the lesser of two evils.
This is the triumphant sneer of the passive aggressive con artist who relishes giving his victim the finger, while putting on a “all innocent” expression.
It is the sneering triumph of a enemy over a humiliated foe.

If someone wished to endorse–or support Romney–there is a very simple way for a honest person to do so:

“Romney is horrendous,but I don’t think we can survive another Obama term”

Full Stop.
One does not need to spit in the face of Romney’s opponents by telling us that Romneycare was a ”triumph” for free market medicine,as that lying hypocrite Coulter did.

Three Cheers for Romneycare:

http://hotair.com/archives/2012/02/01/ann-coulter-three-cheers-for-romneycare

Nor does one need to sneer triumphantly as has this Belladona Rogers creature does.
No there is something else going on here.
And it ain’t pretty.
We are winnowing the wheat from the chaff.
By this I don’t mean that all Romney supporters are “chaff”,but disingenous supporters are.Romney shills are.
There are good people who support Romney as the ”lesser of two evils”.
But they are honest & upfront.
Coulter isn’t.
Rodgers isn’t.
They are liars & frauds.

This has indeed been a very revealing year.

The ”electability” canard.Why the Polls of today don’t matter.

RRD:One of the most oft repeated arguments for Romney(just as it was for Mccain)is the “electability” argument.
Or as I call it:the “electability myth”.
The myth is not that there is no such thing as real,actual electibility,with the flip side being that “anyone can win”.

The myth is that a candidate’s electibility can be determined nine months in advance of a election.

People who have no qualms about saying that ”the Teaparty will just have to fall in line”,nine months in advance of the election,in defiance of the Teaparty’s current ”anyone but Romney” stance,
will nevertheless treat today’s polling data showing Romney as electable,(& conversely showing Gingrich,Paul,Santorum as unelectable) as if it was the Law of Conservation of Energy.
Something that is immutable.
The moods & whims of the ”undecideds” are afforded similar awe.
One wonders why we should bother having elections at all?
Why not just take a poll on the day of the nominating convention & declare whoever leads as President?
Any Pollster worth his salt will tell you that you cannot predict the outcome of a election months in advance,(or even weeks ,if it is remotely close),but all that gets tossed out the window by the Rockefeller Republicans who claim that they would like to be ”pure”,but alas,”elections are won in the center”.

The actual motive behind many of the ”Romney is electable” mantras(fn1) is to dismiss anyone not LEFT OF CENTER as unelectable (both Mccain & Romney were left of center on Global Warming,Romney is additionally left of center on the Individual Mandate).
Having lost the philosophical argument,Rockeffeller Republicans have adopted a new “practical” argument:”Elections are won from the center”.Except that their “centrists” keep going down in flames.(Murkowski and some others being notable exceptions).
Carly Fiorina was supposed to be ”electable”.Along with Meg Whitman.Along with Arlen Specter,(versus the unelectable,since elected Sen.Pat Toomey.)
”Obamacan” Charlie Crist(whose advisors are now advising Romney)
was a supposedly unbeatable candidate,versus the ”nice,but unelectable” Sen.Rubio.
The result?
Crist,a pathological liar & flip flopper,hated by the base,lost the nomination & RAN AS A Independent,and,in what must be the most brazen act of narcissism outside of the White House, instructed his Democratic opponent to ”be unselfish” & drop out of the race.(His opponent,Meek,displayed more self-respect & courage than some ”conservatives” who have shilled for Romney & basically told Crist,& probably also Bill Clinton if the rumors are true, to go to hell).

I do not trust polls.Particularly when they are nearly a year in advance of the elections.
This does not mean that a honest person cannot look at the polls and conclude that Romney is the candidate who is most likely to beat Obama.But they cannot treat their extrapolation as if it were a fact of nature.Nor can they say that ”Since the polls say, that IF the election were held today,Gingrich etal would lose”,therefore ”Gingrich etal CAN’T win”,because the ELECTIONS ARE NOT BEING HELD TODAY.You cannot know what people will do if given the choice,in the real world,of GOP candidate X vs Obama.
You can make guesses & projections,but THAT IS ALL YOU CAN DO.A ”hypothetical matchup” does not take into account:debates between the Republican and the Democrat,errors or gaffes by the candidates,the effect of ads that have yet to run,(both positive & negative),real & invented scandals.
etc.
Anyone who claims to know the outcome of a election,with certainty,is a liar or a fool.
One can make predictions about the outcome.
But one cannot anoint candidate X as ”the only candidate who can beat Obama”.
Teaparty members,Libertarians,Conservatives & Objectivists should take any claims of ”electability” with a grain of salt.
They should not dismiss them,but they should scrutinize them carefully to see if they have a rational justification.They should also study the history of elections to gain context on some of these claims.

Footnotes:

1.Not all.But when you have “Progressive” Republicans,and establishment Republicans consistently predicting defeat for Toomey,Rubio,Reagan etc while ignoring the fact that Fiorina,Ford,Dole,G.H.W.Bush & Mccain went down in flames, it is legitimate to question whether they are ”just interested in winning”, or whether they want Rockefeller Republicans whether they win or lose.

Durbin echoes Lugar…& Mccain in 2008.Will liberals mock him as they did Mccain?

RRD:Of course,in fairness to Durbin–post-recovery summer–things have improved.Unemployment is now much higher,and America has lost it’s AAA rating due(in part) to the massive stimulus spending that was supposed to stimulate the economy…..Oh! Wait! Those aren’t improvements? I guess it depends on what your goal is.

An open letter to Sen.John McCain concerning Christine O’Donnell,Hobbits,& the debt ceiling.

RRD:I recently read your latest comments regarding the debt ceiling debate;specifically regarding Christine O’Donnell.Since you are confused on this–as on so many other things–I thought I would clear up your misperceptions(or your lies) on this issue.     You are quoted in The Hill as saying:    ….”This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into GOP Senate nominees”….     GOP ponders debt repercussions – The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/174433-gop-ponders-whether-debt-fight-hurts-party     The Hill goes on to note:    …”’Some Republicans blame those weak candidates, elected as Tea Party favorites in GOP primaries, helped the party lose a chance at winning control of the Senate.”….    RRD:Let me explain basic math to such people.    If the GOP had won in Delaware with Mike Castle,that would have given them one seat.   If the GOP had picked up Nevada that would have given them one seat.   If the GOP had picked up Colorado that would have given them one seat.  1+1+1=3  The GOP was 12 seats short.It is now 6 votes short.If the GOP had not nominated Angle,Buck or O’Donnell–& had won all three races–it would still be three seats short.   This means that the GOP would not have won control of the Senate.     Now let us turn to the other races:   Carly Fiorina–whom you endorsed over Chuck Devore,the Hobbit’s choice–was exactly the sort of RINO who was supposed to win.(As opposed to that silly Devore).She lost 52/42 to BARBARA (Ah!But Devore would have lost by even more,at least with Fiorina we LOST BY TEN POINTS!YAY!)    By contrast Hobbits(fn1):Ron Johnson,Rand Paul,Mike Lee,Pat Toomey,and Marco Rubio won their races.   Paul,Toomey,Rubio & Lee were not the establishment picks.    Lindsey Graham declared that Toomey could not win.  Orrin Hatch said(fn2):    ….”I don’t think there is anybody in the world who believes he can get elected senator there,” ….. “Asked if the NRSC would back Toomey, Hatch said, “I don’t think so” and that the party should look for “someone who can win there.”[RRDIn the same article Graham suggested Ridge] …. “Hatch later equivocated and said, “I’m not saying he can’t win —nobody gave me a chance when I ran.”    Indeed the NRSC(the National Republican Senatorial Committee) backed Specter,who switched to the Democrats–and in the end–could not beat Joe Sestak for the Democratic nomination.    Crack political thinking Mccain?    Then there’s Rubio.You remember Rubio,Senator Mccain?You endorsed the “Obamacan” Charlie Crist to reward him for endorsing you in 2008.Some believe that he betrayed Giuliani in the process(fn3).But that shouldn’t disturb your code of “honor”.After all,it does permit you to do “whatever’s necessary to win”.(fn4) Against Republicans that is.    But I digress.   In any event,after the NRSC endorsed Crist over Rubio(it’s almost unheard of for the NRSC to endorse a candidate unless they are the incumbent for that seat),the Hobbits gave Rubio the nomination.Crist then declared himself a independent candidate,& in a amazing display of narcissism,demanded the Democrat Kendrick Meek drop out of the race.   Marco Rubio,who “could not win”–according to the “crack political thinking” of the NRSC–won 48% to 29% for Crist,& 20% for  Meek.    Having gotten the “Those tricksy Hobbits cost us cost us control of the Senate”,canard out of the way,let us turn to the underlying assumption:i.e. Hobbits/Tea Partiers care about whether Republicans win elections.   We don’t.   We care about whether Obamacare is repealed.   We care about whether The United States Of America,collapses into Weimar Germany,replete with hyperinflation and mass unemployment.   What we do not care about is the Republican Party.The Republican Party is at best,a useful tool for achieving our goals.At worst,it is a obstacle or a threat.If it cannot be reformed then it will need to be replaced.   Let’s take the case of Mike Castle.Castle,would,in all likelihood,have cruised to a easy victory over Democrat Chris Coons.Delaware IS a bluish state.Yet,knowing this,I & others waged a crusade to help O’Donnell defeat Castle.Indeed,I went further & vowed to help Coons defeat Castle,if Castle got the nomination.   Now why would I do that?   Answer:Why does a chess player sacrifice a rook,or a knight,to checkmate his opponent.(Or to protect his King or Queen?)  The answer is;because he understands that the goal is winning the game.Not preserving a particular chess piece.  Except that the “game”  in this case is not a game.And the goal is not giving the Republicans control of the Senate.  Republicans had control of the House,the Senate,& the Presidency.  What did they do with it?  Under the Rovian strategy(fn5) of “compassionate conservatism” (which was neither),they added massively to our debt,and planned to adopt a neo-conservative philosophy of social welfare spending and social conservatism.   The problem with Mike Castle was not that he was “impure”,or even that he was a RINO.Nor even–as Christine O’Donnell called him–a “Super-Rino”. He wasn’t. He was a Mega-RINO.(In order:Super,Hyper,Mega)   This is a man who was one of two Republican votes,(not two in the House.TWO.Out of hundreds)to vote for the insane DISCLOSE act(fn6).The DISCLOSE act,which was supposedly intended to “merely” require the disclosure of campaign donations,in fact was closer to a 21st century version of the Alien and Sedition act.It was discrimatory against new political groups(read Tea party groups),placed few restrictions on unions,and was written in a way to permit harrassment of bloggers and to destroy online anonymity. In short it was a effort to censor,& to destroy the Tea Party. What on earth would possess me to support my enemy?   Losing the Delaware Senate seat was more than compensated for,by the message it sent to other ,more “normal” RINOS:There is a line,and you cross it–even if it costs us the seat–you’re gone.    And that,Senator Mccain,is what you didn’t get in 2010,what you don’t get in 2011,and what you will probably never get.  So,why then am I writing this to you?  I’M NOT.  Open Letters are often used as a rhetorical device.   I’m writing this for anyone whose mind is open to my argument.    fn.1   On a side note the question must be raised as to whether your insistence on singling out the Hobbits for condemnation(when in fact,the hobbits were only one of several races battling Mordor,e.g.Dwarves,Elves,Men etc.) implies anti-hobbitism on your part.Have you considered that your anti-hobbit views might be explained by MicroAnthropophobia?You might wish to consult a mental health professional on this matter.     fn2   Hatch: Toomey has no shot in Pa. – Manu Raju – POLITICO.com  http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21869.html      fn3.   It is rumored that Crist promised his support to Giuliani,& then switched because of some more promising bribe offered by Mccain.     fn4.   McCain: I don’t change my positions « Hot Air   http://hotair.com/archives/2010/08/20/mccain-i-dont-change-my-positions/    “Well, I don’t know.
