3-18-12 The Media, The Math, Romney V. Obama – 2012

…..However, I think most Americans still value historic American Values, i.e., respect for our flag; supportive and respectful of our military personnel; respect for law; respect for religion and morality etc. The trend is sometimes discouraging but ‘hope springs eternal’!

The Media, The Math, Romney V. Obama -2012


By Wendell Dawson, Editor, AVOC, Inc


The national media went wild with anti-Romney headlines Wednesday morning following the GOP Primary in Alabama and Mississippi:  Santorum SWEEPS South; Governor Romney Nomination in Doubt etc.   However, when the dust settled, Romney had won the most delegates the day before.


Obama and his Media friends have been ‘dissing’ Romney for a year or more because they see him as Obama’s biggest threat.    They constantly minimize his wins, speeches and policies.   Santorum and Gingrich get a lot of face time –especially on FOX which has lost a lot of credibility with me during this primary season.   Persons who do not follow closely and only watch the network news can be influenced by the ‘propaganda’ including the attempt to make Obama’s re-election inevitable.

Governor Romney looks and sounds like a President


The Game should change when we have a GOP Nominee and he can focus on Obama.   The “Anti-Obama” votes will rally and I think Obama can be defeated in an honest election.  My biggest concern is ACORN and Chicago Style Elections trying to win by corrupting the process.   Obama’s re-election is the biggest incentive for the Voter ID Law attacks and challenges by his Administration.    Without an ID, persons can vote under various names and numerous times.  


I realize I am the product of an earlier time and different values.   However, I think most Americans still value historic American Values, i.e., respect for our flag; supportive and respectful of our military personnel; respect for law; respect for religion and morality etc.   The trend is sometimes discouraging but ‘hope springs eternal’!


Santorum often looks and sounds angry and negative


I think Mitt Romney is a moral man who has been married to the same woman for over 40 years and has a nice looking family.   I have not heard him being ugly or disrespectful of his opponents (truth is okay) or the Presidency.    His speeches and statements are inspiring – Obama Media Notwithstanding!    Romney is far and above preferable to the Incumbent President!

Why the MSM Doesn't Want To Do the Romney Math –Townhall-Hewitt-3.15.12


    Mitt Romney’s nomination as the GOP standard bearer in the fall is as inevitable as Barack Obama’s renomination.

    Meteors could hit either man, but it will be a Romney-Obama race in the fall, and the map favors Romney now, as do some national polls.

    The election will come down to a dozen or so states: Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.

    If gas prices continue to rise, the map of Romney’s opportunities to turn 2008 blue states to 2012 red states could grow to include Michigan and New Jersey, perhaps Washington and Oregon, and possibly, in a very good year, Minnesota, but the core 12 states are what will matter in the fall.

    Which is why Obama-fans in the MSM don’t want to declare the obvious and recognize Romney as the GOP nominee.The sooner the shouting is over on the GOP side, the sooner Team Romney turns its full attention to building the campaign in the key states.

    Thus does the Chicago gang struggle to keep alive the myth that Romney might not be the nominee, and thus do the Obama-enablers in the Manhattan-Beltway media elite work overtime to argue that a “brokered convention” could happen.

Washington Examiner -3.14.12  Romney’s Path


 COMMENTS: oldbigdog-   Mitt Romney appears to be a lock at this point. He has 494 delegates at present. There are 481 delegates in states/possessions with winner take all primaries [Puerto Rico, MD, DC, DE, CA, NJ, UT, CT, and NY] that he will clearly win increasing his total to 976. There are 139 delegates in proportional states he'll do very well in including Illinois, Rhode Island, Oregon and New Mexico. If he gets his usual 40% of these that's another 55 delegates. There are 627 remaining delegates in proportional states he may not win, but will not be shut out. These are Missouri, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Indiana, West Virginia, Nebraska, Kentucky, Arkansas, Texas, South Dakota and Montana. If he wins only twenty percent of these it will give him another 125 or so putting him over the 1,144 threshold [494+481+55+125 = 1,155].   Wisconsin is winner take all and he'll lose this state to Santorum. His only problem may be in Texas where if someone gets 50% it's winner take all and he'd wind up short about 30 delegates. One dirty secret - there are about 125 super delegates that rest with the 'party' and include state GOP leaders and other insiders....

Gingrich Slams Santorum as ‘Big Labor Republican’ –Natl Journal – 2.27.12


    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich on Monday called rival Rick Santorum a “big labor Republican” and predicted that the former senator from Pennsylvania will have difficulty competing in the South, where several Super Tuesday primaries will be held on March 6. 

    Speaking to a group of conservatives at a law firm, Gingrich said of Santorum, “He voted for the unions over FedEx………

Rick Santorum’s delegate woes-Trying hard in some states; in others, not so –Wash Post- 3.8.12


   Rick Santorum won’t be winning any delegates in four of Illinois’ 18 congressional districts next month. But, at least in the 13th District, it won’t be because he didn’t try………..

   Jan. 6, the state filing deadline, a Santorum volunteer had brought to the board of elections an envelope containing nominating petitions for a slate of three Santorum delegates in the 13th, the State Journal-Register reports.

   But the petitions were never submitted. A volunteer inadvertently failed to take them out of the envelope, the Journal Register reports, and the envelope wound up in the trash.

   Even if those petitions had been handed in, the Journal-Register story said, it’s possible they would have been challenged. The Santorum camp was only able to round up some 50 signatures for its slate of delegates in the district, well short of the 600 required.

   All in all, the Santorum campaign’s organizational missteps mean that it is already at a deficit of at least 30 delegates in the races playing out over the next month ………..

GM temporarily halts production of Volt-Laying off 1300 – The Hill-3.2.12


   General Motors has temporarily suspended production of its Volt electric car, the company announced Friday. 

   GM, which is based in Detroit, announced to employees at one of its facilities that it was halting production of the beleaguered electric car for five weeks and temporarily laying off 1,300 employees.

    A GM spokesman told The Hill on Friday that production of the Volt would resume April 23.

   "We needed to maintain proper inventory and make sure that we continued to meet market demand," GM spokesman Chris Lee said in a telephone interview.

    Lee noted that sales of the Volt were higher in February than they were in January, and added that California recently decided to allow the electric car to qualify for High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes in the state.

   "We see positive trends, but we needed to make this market adjustment," he said.

    The Chevy Volt has come under criticism from Republicans in Congress because of reports of its batteries catching on fire during testing. President Obama gave the electric vehicle a vote of confidence in a speech to the United Auto Workers union this week, promising he would buy a Volt "five years from now, when I'm not president anymore." ……………


Gas prices could soar past $ 4 this spring, experts say-AJC- 2.20.12


Gas prices are likely to hit an all-time high this summer, fuel experts said Monday.

   Georgians are already paying their highest-ever February prices -- $ 3.51 a gallon, on average  -- a number that could soar past $ 4.50 by summer, some analysts said.

"Typically February reflects some of the lowest averages of the year, and we’re already breaking records," said Jessica Brady, spokeswoman for the AAA Auto Club South.

    A year ago, Georgians paid $ 3.08 per gallon.

   The highest-ever average price for Georgia is $ 4.01, a record set in July 2008. In Atlanta, the highest was $ 4.11, set in September of the same year……
