    I can't comprehend you people arguing that Romney somehow lost by winning the most states and delegates..

    There was no post...Just you playing Lakota and posting link with no excerpt or commentary of your own.

    The good news is that it wasn't a dreary text wall of you talking about yourself.

    I did. I found the reasoning unconvincing. Not surprisingly though. He is now currently 1/3 of the way to the nominee and the delegates for tonight arent all distributed.

    Yet somehow despite winning more states and delegates than the others, he has had a critical loss.

    The reasoning doesnt follow.

    The reasoning is that he didn't have decisive wins in the two swing states: Tennessee and Ohio. He barely pulled off Ohio and lost huge in Tennessee. IF he had slaughtered Santorum in both, the fire would have gone out of all contenders and he wouldn't wake up tomorrow having to deal with the royal pain in the ass that Rick Santorum has become.
    He could then focus all of his campaigning on attacking Obama and the issues that count to Independents and Moderates: The economy, the deficit, unemployment and so on.
    Instead, he is going to have to deal with any issues Santorum decides to use in a desperation attempt to capture a few delegates.
    That's not good for him or his chances in the General Election.

    It is his own commentary... it's his blog. The only reason he's on this site is to get some idiots to read his idiocy. Pathetic, huh?

    Bullshit. He won 5 of the 10, with a strong 'second' in some of states he lost. It's the delegates that count... and he'll pick up over 200 from those races. The rest of it doesn't matter.... it's too early for him to worry about the GE.

    So let's forget about the 5-6 wins he had tonight and the close to 300 delegates he won, he really lost because he didn't win by as much in Ohio, a race that was expected to be tight, and he lost in Tennesse, a state he wasnt expected to win.

    He has 2.5 times more delegates than his closest rival. And yet this is a huge loss?

    There is nothing logical about what you are arguing here.

    Another post that discusses ME instead of the topic or issues! :lol:

    So do you have anything to say about the subject? No? Of course not!

    That's okay. See the signature...

    Oh, and i'm on several boards so I found blogging to just be easier. You may now continue posting about me instead of the subject matter...

    Hugs & Kisses,

    Your BFF
