Also, Mitt’s op-ed in case you missed it:

President Obama Versus Religious Liberty

By Mitt Romney
February 3rd, 2012

The Obama administration is at it again. They are now using Obamacare to impose a secular vision on Americans who believe that they should not have their religious freedom taken away.

February 7th Caucuses and Primary LIVE CHAT and Results

[Chat has moved back to the side bar —->]

UPDATE 1: The polls have closed in Missouri and the race hasn’t been called for Santorum yet which means either it’s unexpectedly close or there were no exit/entrance polls.

UPDATE 2: Rick Santorum wins Missouri, but it’ll be interesting to see what happens in Missouri during their caucus that actually matters on March 17th.

UPDATE 3: Looks like Mitt couldn’t win Minnesota with 0 effort… Campaign seems to have given it and Missouri to Santorum perhaps in hopes of getting Newt out of the race?

UPDATE 4: Secret Service saves Mitt from a glitter-bombing

UPDATE 5: Colorado goes for Santorum as well. Looks like the delegate count didn’t change much though.

LIVECHAT on Florida Primary Day

UPDATE: Bolstered by the huge win the Florida, Mitt Romney has launched the first official money-bomb of this campaign!

We’ll be here all night with updates… To borrow a line from the Black Eyed Peas, I’ve got a feeling that tonight’s gunna be a good good night ;)

[Chat has moved back to the side bar —->]

Full Delegate Count so far…

Also, Newt’s robocall may have sucked any last shred of credibility he has. Hot Air takes Newt to task and I imagine Newt won’t be able to live this one down. Newt has likely mobilized the Ron Paul army against him with this pathetic situation.

While you’re chatting with us later tonight, there will be a special edition of the Mitt Romney Radio show following the primary election in Florida from 9-11 ET. In addition to the show’s guests, they’d like to hear from you, too. Listen live, call in or catch the podcast later.

UPDATE 1: Networks are reportedly going to call the race for Mitt the moment the final polling places close at 8:00.

UPDATE 2: Ann Romney will be on CNN around 8:00 and we’ll post the interview here as soon as it’s available.

UPDATE 3: Mitt wins!

A Time for Unity and Prayer for Bella

I don’t dare assume that everyone who reads this post prays on a regular basis or ever for that matter. However, I would like to ask everyone who is willing to pray for little Isabella and the rest of the Santorum family. We don’t have a lot of details, but 3-year-old Isabella has never had it easy in this life, and she may need God’s help now more than ever. In the heat of a campaign, sometimes it’s hard to see the big picture, but I hope everyone can see past any differences they have with Rick Santorum (by all accounts, a wonderful father) and unite to support the Santorum family during this tumultuous time.

Here are the details we have so far:

Rick Santorum’s 3-year old daughter has been hospitalized in Philadelphia, his campaign said Saturday.

“Rick and his wife Karen are admitting their daughter Bella to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia this evening,” Santorum spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement.

The reason for the hospitalization was not provided.
Santorum’s Saturday morning campaign schedule has been canceled, but Gidley said the former Pennsylvania senator intends to return to the campaign trail as soon as possible.

Santorum had been taking a break from campaigning in Florida and had a Saturday fundraiser scheduled in Washington. He was due to return to Florida to attend church Sunday morning in Miami before heading to a rally in Sarasota, Fla. and a dinner in Punta Gorda, Fla.

Isabella Santorum, one of the presidential candidate’s seven children, has a genetic disorder known as Trisomy 18 that causes people to be born with an extra copy of the 18th chromosome. The disorder causes developmental abnormalities, and half of infants born with the condition do not survive for more than a week after birth, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Santorum and his wife, Karen, speak openly on the campaign trail about the challenges and rewards of raising a child with such a condition, but have avoided putting her in public situations on the campaign trail.

UPDATE: Bella has pneumonia in both of her lungs, but is reportedly improving. Please continue to pray while she is in such a fragile state.

NBC Covers Up for Newt as the MSM Tries to Keep the Gingrich Campaign Alive

Looks like the Main Stream Media is carrying President Obama’s water again. Since much of the media wants to re-elect President Obama, and Newt Gingrich has more baggage than the airlines, it’s not difficult at all to figure out why Newt is getting a free pass. Newt’s campaign is being virtually kept afloat by one billionaire (who might be doing some shady things in Nevada, but that’s for another story) and the rest of the Main Stream Media. Newt’s Super PAC has been slandering Gov. Mitt Romney for weeks now while the networks have turned a blind eye and had no problem running those ads, but now that Mitt’s momentum is back on the rise, the media is getting nervous.

Mitt’s latest campaign ad in Florida is a very simple 30 second ad showing the beginning of Tom Brokaw’s show in the 1990’s on the night Speaker Gingrich was reprimanded and fined by Congress for his ethics violations. Now, NBC is trying to prevent this ad from getting on the television sets of Floridians.

Brokaw, whose statement noted he was speaking on his behalf, said, “I am extremely uncomfortable with the extended use of my personal image in this political ad. I do no want my role as a journalist compromised for political gain by any campaign.”

“The NBC Legal Department has written a letter to the campaign asking for the removal of all NBC News material from their campaign ads,” NBC News said in a statement.

The laughable assertion that Tom Brokaw’s role as a journalist hasn’t already been compromised aside, ads like this have been used in campaign after campaign without a complaint because they fall under Fair Use. Just in case the ad is pulled off Youtube, I’ve uploaded it to another channel so you can see the ad Newt Gingrich and the MSM don’t want you to see.

It is disgusting that the same media outlets that had no trouble running these ads, which have been condemned by Politifact and others, complain about an ad which is 100% accurate.

I feel like I’m beating a dead horse, but it’s astounding how many people still don’t know that Mitt Romney is the candidate President Obama fears. A recent study has illustrated this point with the headline “TV News Bashes Romney, Boosts Horse Race

Mitt Romney was the only major candidate to receive a majority of negative evaluations by sources and reporters, on both the broadcast network nightly news and FOX “Special Report.” … On the broadcast networks, evaluative comments of Romney were 78% negative vs. only 22% positive. By contrast, on-air judgments of Ron Paul were 73% positive vs. 27% negative, evaluations of Jon Huntsman were 71% positive vs. 29% negative, Rick Santorum’s evaluations were 56% positive vs. 44% negative, and comments about Newt Gingrich were 52% positive vs. 48% negative.

While much of the media actively assists in the re-election of President Obama, others care only for their ratings which necessitates a competitive republican primary. Those media organizations deceive their audience as much as the others and are doing the country just as big of a disservice. I’m sure these media company executives and DNC members are giddy every time Newt or his Super PAC lob another nefarious accusation at Gov. Romney. It’s unfortunate that we live in the media world we do, but I’m grateful more than ever for the opportunity to share the truth and for people to find the truth at places like this blog, the Drudge Report, and others. We’d be captive to media bias without them. Twenty years ago, without the internet, Gov. Romney might have been doomed, but the truth is on our side. 2012 is when we take our country back!
