Mitt Romney Leads New Hampshire Poll

HE’S BAAAAAAAAACK! This is not a story from the 2008 presidential race. Or the 2012 presidential race. Nor is it satire … This is an honest-to-God story assessing the 2016 presidential race … and the fact former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the top choice of New Hampshire GOP primary…


This is not a story from the 2008 presidential race. Or the 2012 presidential race. Nor is it satire …

This is an honest-to-God story assessing the 2016 presidential race … and the fact former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the top choice of New Hampshire GOP primary voters for the GOP presidential nomination. Yes, THAT Mitt Romney.

Seriously, New Hampshire? Seriously? 

According to poll results from Virginia-based Purple Strategies (first published by The Boston Globe), Romney received 25 percent of Granite State GOP support – ahead of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (18 percent), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (17 percent) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (13 percent).

Astounding …

Again … who are these idiots in New Hampshire?

Do they not get that Romney was (is) a socialized medicine-loving, bailout-backing, global interventionist, crony capitalist of the worst sort … different from U.S. President Barack Obama only by the slightest ideological degrees?

Of course the same can be said of South Carolina voters … who voted for a fatter version of Romney in 2012.

Ah, “Republicans …”

Good luck with all that!

“Please, quick, someone — anyone — reassure me this isn’t really where the GOP is heading Right? Right??” S.C. Sen. Tom Davis wrote on his Facebook page referring to the Romney news.

Our sentiments exactly …

Despite its 2008 feel, Purple Strategies’ poll was actually conducted from January 21-23 of this year. It surveyed 535 “Republican” primary voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.

After the TOTAL Mistake of re-electing Obama has become painfully obvious, you have to believe a lot of people are heartsick they were duped by the media liars and Obama operatives.

That said: Mitt’s time has passed. NE Republicans ain’t gone get it. We need a Southern Governor, or possibly Scott Walker, if he is hard right Conservative, like he was against the edu-rat union scum.

Whoever it is: It’s time to dump the trash..and the Republican has carte blanche to take back America. I think people are very sorry for betraying her, w/ Obama.

venomachine January 31, 2014 at 3:11 pm

Mitt was a sucky candidate. Everyone knew it.

McCain was a sucky cadidate. Everyone knew it.

Obama was a sucky candidate. Everyone knew it.

We have been confronted with suckdom for presidential candidates for quite some time. I don’t see any difference in the future.

GrandTango January 31, 2014 at 3:16 pm

Sadly you think like a defeatist. If everyone were like you…SC would still be controlled by democrats, and totally @$$-backward…And the SC football team would consider it a success to make the Shreveport Bowl…and a loser to Clemson…

If you have no belief in something better, your life will always suck….

You don’t quit fighting Liberal Nazis, just because the media lied to you..and got them elected. There’s more reason to fight now, than there ever has been. We cannot afford any more of them…

Great. He has had four years to clean up his tax return. Maybe he will release it this time. Plus, no one remembers the 47% remarks. He will easily just etch-a-sketch them. It should not be difficult to get rid of the binders of women, but how can he keep the rest of the party from making stupid rape comments?

GrandTango January 31, 2014 at 2:52 pm

You re-elected Obama…you Dumb@$$…even if Romney WAS responsible for the cancer, like you drones believed…you have to admit, it was a BIG F*#k-up to put Mr. “You Can Keep Your Plan-And It’ll Cost Less” back in…

You’re not that F*#kin Stupid are you???

ThreePalms January 31, 2014 at 3:16 pm

No, GT. He is a crappy candidate. He lost big time against an incumbent during one of the worst economic times in our history. My post, which may have been confusing to you, referred to several of his biggest mistakes. But by all means, run him again. You are a colossal idiot, but I think even you know what they call someone who does the same thing over again expecting a different result.

GrandTango January 31, 2014 at 3:20 pm

Mitt’s time has passed. That said: your guy is a total F*#k up…and Romney would have been much better. he could not have been any worse…

Too many of the stupid believe your myths about Romney…That’s what scares me…

MashPotato February 2, 2014 at 5:44 pm

That’s what you don’t understand: Mitt would have been just as fucking bad as Obama. But you’d be singing his praises because you’re a partisan hack paid to post unintelligible garbage.

GrandTango February 2, 2014 at 7:57 pm

Romney is a business man and a good man. Not an Affirmative Action, Community Organizer, who has NEVER had a real job..other than the one racist voters and ignorant liberals handed to him…

When you’ve had to earn something, like Romney did, you learn how to succeed. Obama played on the weaknesses on the simple-minded and bitter to enrich himself, far more than he deserves.

It’s painfully obvious, Obama lives in a world of liberal hypothesis…where leftwing theory, that fails every time, overrides common sense, love for the American people and true ability….

And the fact that there are people so F*#king stupid as you, that you don’t know the difference, is sad and disgusting….

MyDaddyIsRich February 2, 2014 at 9:46 pm

Had to earn something? Romney was born with a silver spoon up his ass. Love these guys born on third base who think they hit a home run.

GrandTango February 3, 2014 at 6:27 am

Romeny gave away what his father earned and gave him, Dumb@$$…because he wanted to do it on his own. While Obama has drained the system dry, using his race as a gold card.

Of course I’m sure the reality of it is wasted on you. Mythology, like Hitler used for control, is what governs the ignorant, like you…

MyDaddyIsRich February 3, 2014 at 3:33 pm

Romney did not give away shit. If you think he had to start from the bottom you are as dumb as you sound. Did he give it all away after Harvard and Stanford or before? I am starting to think you have to be SICs alter ego as no one could possibly be as stupid as you are.

GrandTango February 3, 2014 at 3:51 pm

Hitler had to sell mythology to dupe the ignorant, so they’d follow him. You are no different than his Nazi drones…

Educate yourself before opening your mouth. A dumb@$$ Obama voter is dangerous enough…but one who refuses to accept what he is is, like you, is criminal…

The Laurens Tea Party was audited by Obama’s IRS, but the Black Panthers walked. Truth or justice maans nothing any more. We have a Soviet-style dictator running the justice system.

Suits are filed based on political persecution by Obama…Democrats will prosecute based on speech. That’s how Hitler did it too. Are you proud of what your are, and what you’ve done to America????

Regardless of their low status is in the eyes of you and Obama…using the government to punish those you hate and fear is un-American and un-Constitutional. Which is exactly how you like it.

Calm down, it’s just name recognition. Romney won’t run, he’s the guy who lost to Obama. He’s dead in the water if he does.

Christie Asks for Public’s Patience While He Comes Up with New Story

TRENTON (The Borowitz Report) — Responding to fresh charges that he knew about the controversial lane closures on the George Washington Bridge last fall, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie today asked for the public’s patience while he makes up a new story.

“Today you have heard some allegations that are shocking and explosive,” he told reporters at a hastily called press conference. “All I ask is that the people of the great state of New Jersey give me sufficient time to invent a new story that explains my way out of this.”

Governor Christie said that he had spent the past few hours in closed-door meetings trying to come up with a new narrative that absolves him of any guilt in the bridge scandal, but while he was definitely denying the allegations, “so far, we don’t have a winner.”

“We’ve been tossing around everything from my not remembering events correctly to my having a bad reaction to medication,” he said. “We even floated the idea of my being under too much pressure and having to ‘blow off steam.’ As I said, we don’t have a winner yet. But I want to reassure the people of New Jersey that I am working very hard on this.”

The Governor said he understood that “things don’t look very good for me right now,” but he urged the public against rushing to judgment, adding, “I will get back to you with a well-crafted and plausible story as soon as possible.”

Troubled Man Seen Outside Super Bowl

[CHRIS CHRISTIE — Photograph by Mel Evans/AP.]

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (The Borowitz Report) — A “visibly troubled” man was spotted today outside MetLife Stadium just hours before the kickoff of Super Bowl XLVIII.

The man, his eyes darting about menacingly, alarmed passersby who were gathering at the Super Bowl venue.

Harland Dorrinson, who was participating in a pregame tailgating party, said he overheard the belligerent man making several “threatening remarks.”

“He said something like, ‘If I go down, I’m taking a lot of people with me,’” Mr. Dorrinson said. “He also said that someone was out to get him, but he was going to get him first.”

“He was ranting about how terrible this person was, saying, ‘Everything our high-school social studies teacher said was true,’” Mr. Dorrinson added. “It was the ravings of a madman.”

Calling the man “really scary and dangerous,” Mr. Dorrinson said he hoped that authorities would take the troubled individual into custody before the big game begins.

“He’s clearly angry and out of control,” he said. “A guy like that shouldn’t be in a position where he can do other people harm.”
