2012 Florida Primary
Tonight's results in Florida with 100% of precincts reporting in:
Mitt Romney - 47% (758,425 votes, 50 delegates)
Newt Gingrich - 32% (518,465 votes)
Rick Santorum - 13% (216,999 votes)
Ron Paul - 7% (113,904 votes)
Delegate Totals to Date
Mitt Romney: 69 delegates.
Newt Gingrich: 26 delegates.
Rick Santorum: 14 delegates.
Ron Paul: 4 delegates.
1,144 required to win.
I find it disturbing there are 113,000 people stupid enough to buy Ron Paul's bullshit and vote for him. Nevada is up next on the 4th with 28 more delegates at stake.

Well. I guess that's that then.
I told my wife that I wasn't sure what I would do if Romney gets the nomination, I still feel dirty from voting for McCain. If my choice in November is between Romney and Obama I won't be too excited to rush out to the polls. My choice would be to vote for a typical politician who only says what he thinks his present audience wants to hear, who will turn around and say the exact opposite at the next campaign speech, who is not above dirty smears and outright lies against his opponents, who ran his first campaign on the premise that he was the opposite Reagan and Bush, who pushed through a disastrous universal healthcare plan; or my other choice would be Obama.
I'm certainly not thrilled with the prospect of a Romney win, but surely even he has to be better than inflicting another 4 years of Obama on everyone.
To "TES Fan": Giskard is looney tunes. He thinks that by supporting the corrupt corporate entities behind Curse and/or Steam that he'll be rid of his mythical troll problem. He's going to be in for a rude awakening.
I can't entirely argue against our Anonymous friend's post, even the argument of "anyone's got to be better than Obama" lends an opening to the thought of "better the devil we know..." The flip side of that is that we really can't afford to let Obama stay in office another term, so we've got to really hope that either Newt manages to pull a minor miracle out of his hat or that Mitt's at least not as bad as Barrack has been. :sigh: Such choices these days, eh?
