No, it is not that all, at least to me it isn't.

· Super Tuesday proved that this is a very fluid election. Gov. Romney won seven states, including Colorado and Minnesota where Republicans must be competitive in the general election.

· The nomination is by no means settled. Even assuming that McCain reaches 700 delegates once counting finishes in California, he would still need to win 77% of delegates from upcoming states to secure the nomination by April 1.

· Gov. Romney did surprisingly well in several key, battleground states. Gov. Romney won Minnesota despite Sen. McCain have the support of the sitting Republican governor and senator. Gov. Romney also did better than expected in Georgia and Missouri.

· Gov. Romney has received eleven gold medals, eleven silver medals and six bronzes. He is the clear full-spectrum conservative in this race.

Post-Feb. 5:

· On Thursday, Gov. Romney will be at the Conservative Political Action Conference where Gov. Romney will address his vision for the future of the Republican Party and nation.

· After Feb. 5, we expect to be competitive in the Kansas and Washington state caucuses on Feb. 9 and then the Feb. 12 states – Virginia, Maryland, and also Washington, D.C.

· Upcoming states will be fertile ground for Gov. Romney because the two largest states on the primary calendar between today and April 1, Texas and Ohio, are favorable terrain. Texas has a very conservative GOP primary vote and 140 delegates; Ohio's economy is similar to Michigan and the state has 88 delegates.

· Gov. Romney did well in caucus states where we focused our energy and resources. In just a few days, Republican voters will caucus in Kansas (39 delegates, winner-take-all) and Washington (40 delegates, proportional) which promise to be strong states for Gov. Romney.

Conservatives Are Coalescing Behind Governor Romney:

· Once again, Gov. Romney carried conservative voters by wide margins. Nationally, he won conservatives by double-digits, 42%-31% over Sen. McCain.

· Even in states Sen. McCain won, Gov. Romney carried conservative voters. For instance, in California, Gov. Romney won conservatives by six points, 39%-33%. Gov. Romney even won conservatives in McCain's home state of Arizona, 43%-40%.

The Republican Party Is Not Coalescing Behind Sen. McCain And Gov. Huckabee:

· Super Tuesday's results show that Sen. McCain is not the presumptive Republican nominee as he himself had expected.

· Sen. McCain made several campaign mistakes. He spent the last few days campaigning where he was the strongest – New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. He also spent time in Massachusetts where Gov. Romney won comfortably.

· Gov. Huckabee is not expanding his base of support. He overperformed anywhere where there were large numbers of evangelical voters and underperformed wherever there weren't. Gov. Huckabee's lack of support is evident in his underperforming showings in AZ, CA, NJ, NY, CT and MA.

· Gov. Huckabee has lost five states to Ron Paul, including at least three on Super Tuesday.

McCain won states that will likely be democratic strongholds. Romney won states that must be held by republicans in November. Huckabee won states that will be likely be won by republicans anyway,(namely, conservativie southern states).

McCain is also speaking at CPAC on Thursday.

Gosh, had an awful time deciding who to vote for... Forget Jack Nicholson, Stevie Wonder, Caroline Kennedy, Oprah...

The real endorsements that would swing my vote --- Paris, Lindsey, and, best of all, Brittany 5150. Once again the press has let us down. They neglected to report who these celebs had endorsed. So, had to struggle along without them.

MSNBC's David Schuster should be quarintened as he is showing signs of Foot in Mouth Disease. In case you missed it, David said yesterday that Chelsea Clinton had been "pimped out" to campaign for her mother. This comment is rude, crude, insensitive, and just wrong on all counts. It reminds me of comments about some women as 'nappy headed hos'... As was pointed out, the Bush twins campainged for their dad last time. Just where does Schuster get off attacking Chelsea?

Scared Mittless:

Gov. Romney who has zero responsibility in this area, couldn't resist demogoging the FISA law at CPAC yesterday. He claimed that Senate Democrats are making it harder to catch terrorists by delaying the extension of the FISA Act. Wrong, Mitt. The issue is Bush's insistence on retroactive immunity for civil liability against telcom executives who made it easier for the goverment to engage in warrantless wiretapping. Who owns this country? Is it the telcom companies or is it the citizens? And where are the trial lawyers when we need them. I hope Senate Democrats will hang tough on this. No retroactive immunity!

Floss, what Ive taken from your posts is that you are just one of those who choses to have her head in the sand. I can see looking at things as "glass half full" but you get to that point where you are just ignoring the writing on the wall. Illegal immigration, universal health care, globalization, EXTREME partisanship, smoke and mirror economy. These are not subjects that make me very optimistic.

Liberals have us flying towards socialism at 90 mph. Conservatives (in name only) slow it down to 55. Either way this country is in deep &*^%. The differences between the 2 parties are being blurred more and more. That is why I weep for this countries future.
