GOP Illinois Primary: CUBS WIN!! CUBS WIN!!!

Well not really.  Sorry Mike.  But Romney won, and is winning big.  Current numbers have him at 55% to Santorum’s 28%.  That is huge, but again the delegate count will tell the tale.  We won’t know the full delegate victory until late tonight or tomorrow sometime.  Romney started the night already 10 delegates ahead because Santorum couldn’t get enough delegates registered throughout the state.  That huge lead will not hold up as the rural counties have yet to report their vote.  I would expect Mitt’s lead will be in the single digits by nights end.  It’s also likely Santorum and Romney will split up the delegates with Mitt getting just slightly more.  That is bad for Santorum.  He needs to be running ahead in delegates and since his “Big” southern win he has been consistently losing ground.

To make matters worse, Newt came in fourth tonight, finishing at 7%.  That’s a full 2% behind Ron Paul, who is so short on money the only time he’s on the radio or TV is for election night concession speeches.  Because of that the cry is getting louder for Newt to get out.  The word on the street is that Newt could exit tonight or after Wisconsin on April 3rd.  If that happens, I think the vote Santorum is counting on from the Gingrich campaign will actually migrate to Romney as Mitt continues to build his lead.

Odd stat of the night:

Romney, a Mormon, is winning among Catholics in Illinois 48% to 32% over Santorum, a devout Catholic.

Candidate Campaign Health:

It’s FEC (Federal election Commission) day which means candidates must file their financial situation for the quarter.  This gives us an interesting look into the health of each campaign.  Below are their respective efforts.  (Romney and Santorum only)

Romney:  

12 mil raised

12.4 mil spent

0 debt

0 in loans

7 mil on hand

Santorum:

6.7 mil raised

5.2 mil spent

956,000 in debt

20,000 in loans – to Santorum himself in personal funds

1.5 mil on hand

So what does all that mean.  It gives a good look at how much each candidate can spend going on to the next primaries.  These particular numbers show something else.  Santorum is having trouble raising money and keeping the money he does raise.  This is not uncommon with a campaign that is a little unorganized, as has been reported.  The 20,000 loan Santorum gave his campaign has been repaid to him even though the campaign still owes 956,000 to others.  Me thinks there might be some fancy cypherin (read accounting) going on in that there campaign.

The “on hand” money is a little decieveing. It may be on hand but a lot of that is already ear marked to upcoming debt.  So neither candidate has that # as a balance as we speak tonight.  That’s what they had on hand as of the filing deadline today but you can already subtract the reported debt from the on-hand number.  Rest assured as each candidate travels tonight they are already incurring debt and eating substantially into the on-hand number.

So Mitt has no outstanding debt but he’s spending money even as he is giving his victory speech right now.  So his $7 mil on-hand is no longer $7 mil.  Even concession speeches cost money.  You only see the candidate on stage, but what you can’t see is food and drink laid out for VIP’s, Ron Paul is known for using a cash bar at his rallies: victory or concession,  building rental, car rental, the music being played, signs handed out to the crowd for the TV shot, etc….  All of this costs money and it comes from the campaign.

There is probably a reason Santorum is giving his concession speech from his hometown tonight and not the next campaign stop in Louisiana.  Most likely he’s getting the hall on the cuff (Jersey speak for free).  He has one banner and no one is eating or drinking.

Of course each campaign is also raising money at the same time.  Mitt will take a big lead there with his state victory tonight.  As I have said many times, state victories bring money, delegate victories bring the nomination.  We’ll see if Mitt’s big win translates into big delegates.

On to the Louisiana primary this Saturday, 24 March.  It’s a big one, 42 delegates up for grabs in the Bayou Primary, but they’re all big at this point.

 

At current Illinois primary numbers Romney will win about 20 more delegates than Santorum,.  Only 50% of the vote in right now, so that may change.

GOP Primary: De Romney victorias enorme en la Puerto Rico!

That translation may be too literal to be accurate, but the result is the same; Mitt wins huge in Puerto Rico.  The Common Wealth of Puerto Rico is a territory of these United States and as such they are permitted to vote in the primary.  They use an open primary system, democrats and republicans can vote in the same one.  They are not, however, allowed to vote in the general election for President in November.  Puerto Rico is a proportional delegate system, meaning you can win delegates without winning the total vote count.  However, if you manage to get more than 50% of all votes cast you get all 20 delegates.

Governor Luis Fortuno of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico holds their own elections for local issues and to elect a Governor, although I don’t believe Governor Fortuno’s term is up until 2o14.  This is a sharp dude.  He earned his BA from Georgetown and his law degree from the University of Virginia, the same school where one Derek Dooley, head coach of Tennessee Football, earned his degree.  Go Big Orange!

One of the local issues up for a vote in 2012 in Puerto Rico is the petition for statehood.  This particular issue was a big part of Mitt’s win tonight.  Both Romney and Santorum went to the island and campaigned.  Santorum spent two days there, which as it turns out was two days too long.

When asked about the issue of statehood, Santorum went off about the language Puerto Ricans speak before he ever said he would support a move to statehood.  He said Puerto Ricans would have to adopt english as the only official language to be considered for statehood.  He said prosperity would only come from english not spanish.  Then he said it was the law so to be a state they would have to adopt english anyway.  Then the next day when that all blew up in his face like a burning hot tamale wrapped way too tight, he blamed his Puerto Rican interpreter for getting his words all wrong and then the press for taking him out of context and then finally it was Mitt’s fault for making the whole thing up.

Doesn’t take Nostradamus to predict the outcome of that little fiasco.  I can name that island ass kicking in five words.  “Speak english you Puerto Ricans.”  It would have been much more efficient and probably saved Santorum a trip and a lot of wasted campaign funds had he just said those five words instead of blaming everyone for two whole days.  For all the guff Romney takes for being a flip flopper, ole Rick really means what he says until a large block of voters don’t like it, then all of a sudden it’s everyone else’s fault for not understanding or twisting his words.

So Romney stepped into the breach, said he supported the right of the people of Puerto Rico to petition for statehood; a move he believes will become reality when it’s put to a local vote in November.  Then he said the magic words.  Puerto Rico will prosper  no matter the language they speak.  How big of an issue was that whole deal?  Well on an island made up mostly of Catholics, the Mormon was crushing the Catholic by 88% of the vote at last count.  Now Romney already had the endorsement of Governor Fortuno, and Fortuno leads the party platform that is pushing for statehood, but Santorum really hurt himself when he went off, wait for it, wait for it… went off his note cards and told the reporter the english for statehood line.  Damn you mini paper prompters!

His own local party chairman remarked that Santorum should have done much better here because the Catholics were really turning out for him, but they were greatly offended about the degradation of their language by Santorum.  That blunder is not a small one.  Santorum has to be gaining on Romney.  In the last two primaries he only broke even, and now he just lost ground by 20 because by winning more than 50% of the vote Mitt got all 20 delegates.

Gingrich and Ron Paul did not campaign on the island, and really why are they even staying in the race.

As a Washington Post writer, who was more diligent than the rest to do the math, has reported, Santorum and Gingrich would now have to combine to win 55% of the total remaining delegates to stop Romney from getting 1144 delegates before the convention.  So even Newt’s days as a uni-bomber are running out.  His whole reason for staying in is to stop Mitt.  If Mitt takes any considerable number of delgates from Illinois on Tuesday the math really moves toward impossibility for Blocky McBlockerton (Newt) and Rick “english only” Santorum.

Santorum has already had a setback for Tuesday as he again failed to register in every county in Illinois.  That means he cannot win a majority of the delegates there.  Of course he blamed that on his grass roots campaign and the lack of organization they had early on.   Translation, we never thought we would get this far so we didn’t plan for it.

Well Rick, people who don’t think they will get that far normally don’t get that far.  This is also a big deal, Illinois has 69 delegates up for grabs Tuesday.  It would have been a good chance for Santorum to gain ground.  Instead he’s 20 delegates further in the hole, and can’t get a majority of the 69 on Tuesday.

This is why I said early on, balancing your own checkbook and doing your own taxes means squadoosh as a Presidential candidate.  It was a bad attempt by Santorum to relate with the common man.  Who cares if he can file a 1040EZ.  He can’t run a major campaign which is actually a microcosm of a Presidential Administration.  Writing a check to H&R Block is not the same as balancing the federal budget.

Santorum said today if he wins Illinois he wins the nomination.  Rick is apparently not reading Frank’s Place, because if he did he would know that he can win the overall state vote all day long, and Romney can still walk away with more delegates from Illinois.

Illinois is central time zone so reults will be coming in late.  It will be a close race, so counts might not be done until after midnight eastern time.

Rest assured Frank’s Place will be on the job.

Out of the mouth of babes: Presidential Candidates Edition

So far I have two posts detailing some of the funny things Frank has said.  You can read them here: The Mouth of Babes, The Mouth of Babes II.  With him getting older and twins on the way, those posts should grow exponentially.  I really never thought I would be writing about the sometimes funny, but mostly stupid things that grown men say; certainly not grown men running for, what most would argue is the most powerful position on the planet.  Yet here we are still eight months from the Presidential election and I could fill pages and pages with the ridiculously absurd things all the candidates for President, including the current President, have said over the past few months.  Don’t worry, no pages and pages here, just some of the select quotes.

Rank has its privilege so Mr. President you’re up:

“One of my predecessors, Rutherford B. Hayes, reportedly said about the telephone, ‘It’s a great invention, but who would ever want to use one?‘ That’s why he’s not on Mount Rushmore — because he’s looking backwards.”  Yeah, the Mount Rushmore line is really good.  It would have been a better line if Hayes wasn’t the guy who had the first telephone installed at the White House and was the 19th century’s version of a nerd and techno buff.  The really cool and funny thing here is, Stephen A. Hayes is the great-great grandson of Rutherford B Hayes, chairman of the former President’s museum, and surprise surprise, a Fox news regular.  He is frequently a member of the panel of Bret Baier’s news show on Fox.  So we are getting all this right from the horses mouth so to speak.

Mr. President, you’re in an elite club, if you’re going to trash them, at least know the members.  Stick to constitutional law, leave the history to the professionals.

Mitt Romney: Mostly funny, slightly sad

“I love cars, I have a truck, my wife has a Cadillac, two of them actually.  She loves them.”  This said at a rally in Detroit where the auto workers came to hear Mitt’s thoughts since Mitt opposed the bailout.  If you don’t see the issue here, you have too much money.

“The tress are all the right hight.”  Said at a different rally in Michigan, this is just plain weird.  However I am told by some that this is an inside jab at Wisconsin, and Michiganders knew what he was talking about even though the rest of us had no clue.

“Oh, I won’t pick where Peyton Manning is going to go, a lot of my friends are owners.”  In response to his thoughts on the whole Peyton Manning/NFL issue.  Again it’s a little insight into how Mitt views the world; apparently through money encrusted glasses.

“I love NASCAR, some of my best friends are team owners.”  Again with the owner stuff.   This occurred in the south obviously, during the primaries in TN, AL, and MS.  The unwashed just can’t relate.

So these are not untruths as they are gaffes that expose his disconected-ness from the working folk of America.   Mitt finally blew his cork about all this stuff on Fox News Sunday no less.  He tore into host Chris Wallace telling him he refuses to apologize for being successful, hard working, and rich.  Tough to argue.  Also tough to see why this matters in the primary.  Aren’t republicans all for capitalism and money and wealth and stuff?

Rick Santorum: Mostly frightening, partly crazy

“TelePrompTers should be illegal.”  Says the man against big government, for freedom, while reading from a note card – the paper version of a prompter.

“Contraception is a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”  Wow, just wow.  Tell that to all the women who use it for medical reasons, like endometriosis, to name one.

“If Puerto Rico wants to become a state then they have to adopt english as the official language.”  Said at a Puerto Rico Progressive party rally for statehood and to a reporter from a San Juan newspaper.  Rick went on to say english is required under the constitution for statehood.  Again wow.  For a party that claims the current President is destroying the constitution, they sure lack any knowledge of what it actually says.  Let me help, there is absolutely no mention of english being mandatory for statehood, none.  Don’t count those delegates from PR just yet Rick, and I wouldn’t count on a lot from Texas and California either.

“The Obama Administration has turned a blind eye to those who wish to preserve our culture from the scourge of pornography and has refused to enforce obscenity laws. ”   This from a speech he made and it’s posted on his web site.  Frightening for a few reasons.  1. He offers no evidence of the blind eye by President Obama.  2. He believes as President he will enforce theses laws.  How, Rick, how will you do that?  Police enforce the law, congress writes the law, you only get to sign it.  And who gets to define obscenity?  Will you make the word “Crap” illegal?  The fact he doesn’t know any of that is frightening enough.  3. He thinks this is the big issue in America today.  But Mitt is somehow the one who’s disconnected?

Newt Gingrich: Mostly funny, partly delusional 

“I don’t know Brett.”  In response to Brett Baier’s question, “What state can you win, if you can’t win the southern states?” after Newt got the big south rebuke, coming in 3rd in TN, 2nd in AL and MS.  Newt compounded his problems when he said he had to win the south to remain viable.  Very inspiring Newt, well done.

To the moon Alice! To the Moon!

“By the end of my second term we will have the first permanent base on the moon and it will be American.”  Great, big help Newt.  I’m sure the people who can’t get a job will be linning up to get jobs in the space program now.  It should  come as no surprise he said this to a group of Floridians on what’s known as the Space Coast – Cape Canaveral.   Also his time table would be 9 years from now, so again big help and I don’t like the way you said that as if you might get more than two terms.

“I’m not a natural leader. I’m too intellectual; I’m too abstract; I think too much.”  Vote for me, I’m too smart to lead!

I’m going to be the nominee. It’s very hard not to look at the recent polls and think that the odds are very high I’m going to be the nominee.”  Ouch, that has to sting a little.

 

I was going to put some Ron Paul stuff up here but lets face it, he’s a distant memory.  He recieved less than 4% of the vote in the last 6 primaries.  If these were debates he wouldn’t even meet the % requirement to to get in.

Puerto Rico primary tomorrow.  Check back for latest results.

Diary of a Stay At Home Dad: Why is Frank barking like a dog?

So we still had Frank’s monitor on in our room at the 7 month old mark.  One night I awaken to the sound of a dog choking on a chicken bone.  I felt that was weird because for one thing we had pizza for dinner that night and more importantly, we don’t have a dog.    A quick peek at the monitor and I see Frank standing up in his crib barking.  My first thought was what the hell is that kid doing and why is he doing it at 3 in the morning.  Then I heard the wheezing between the barks.  He can’t get his breath.

OK, now I’m up and adrenaline rushing to the point of being able to lift a car.  You hear that story a lot; a mother seeing her child in danger lifts a car off of them.  I’m not saying I could lift a car but I went from snoring to wide awake in 0.3 seconds.  Haven’t done that since boot camp; some 24 years ago.  Age, in this case, only matters on the backside of the rush.  The dreaded come down is going to hurt, bad.  But at the moment my 7 month old son is smiling and wheezing like a 77 year old asthma patient at the same time.

Tracy calls the pediatrician’s on call nurse.  She can hear Frank wheezing over the phone and Tracy was out in the hall way.  There was a bunch of description of symptoms being exchanged and some discussion but then I hear “go to the ER.”  Good enough for me.  I switch into what Tracy likes to call task mode.  Children’s Hospital in Knoxville is probably 15 minutes away, but at 4am it was more like 8 minutes.  It’s possible I bent the speed limit a tad as well.

No waiting at 4am.  They took Frank right back.  They checked him out, gave him something to help him breath a little easier, and we laid down in the exam room to wait for a bed.  He was being admitted.  Frank was getting his first trip to the hospital since he was born some 7 months prior.  At the age of 44 I have yet to spend the night in a hospital.  And no, I’m not superstitious.

We get to a room and are given the diagnosis, Respiratory Syncytial Virus, or RSV.  This is one of those times it’s advantageous to have a child so much later in life.  I have heard of RSV as several of my friends kids had it.  It is more serious for babies and Frank was only 7 months, but it was in no way as bad as first time parents could imagine.  Our blood pressure and guilt started to subside.

I don’t know about y’all but with Frank I go right to worst case scenario when he gets sick.  This is a new thing for me.  In regards to my own health I am much more dumb and dangerous in the other direction.   I never take my own illnesses serious enough and they become much worse than they would have.  Since having Frank I’ve become an old Italian lady, I worry about everything.

Distracted easily, I noticed a children’s hospital room has some cool equipment.  I mean Frank didn’t think it was all that cool, but what did he know, he was only 7 months old.  The coolest thing was what Frank hated the most, the snot sucker.  This is an air driven vacuum hose they put up one of his nostrils while feeding saline solution up the other; essentially the industrial grade version of the little squeeze bulb we all have used to clean the nose of a child.  Big difference here, the air powered one actually works.

That sucker cleaned Frank’s snot-locker in like a minute.  Sure he yelled loud enough to make a dolphin’s ears bleed and the first nurse to do it to him cried the whole time, but drama aside, the thing made it seem so effortless.  I would have to use a squeeze bulb for an hour to get the results that thing did in a minute.  Tracy was reading the look in my eye, “You know Babies R Us sells battery powered versions of that.”  My head snaps toward her like, “Why don’t we have one?!?!”  We do now.

Frank recovered from his first nose clean-out quick enough to make eyes at the cute nurse who was beside herself for making him cry.  They hugged it out and Frank watched her with a smile until she left.  That scene would repeat itself with every nurse who came in.  It got so bad that even Tracy noticed it and asked me if I’ve seen him eyeballing the nurses.  Kid’s an animal.

Sleeping it off after discharge from first hospital stay

Overall he spent essentially 2 days and 2 nights in the hospital if you count going at 4am “night”.  Tracy stayed with him over the second night and he was released the next day.  He did great in the hospital.  He got to sleep on mommy, although that meant Tracy didn’t sleep much.  However I guarantee you she would love to have him do that now, as he is getting past the age of wanting to curl up with either of us.

Frank did have some visitors during his short stay.  Good friends Marisa and Becky came by to see him and look after Tracy.  That was and is always comforting, thanks guys!

It was the second week of December so as we were checking out we ran into Santa Claus in the hallway and he gave Frank a stuffed dog even though we were leaving.  It was neat and Frank still sleeps with Dog to this day but it was a stark reminder of how lucky we were.  There were kids on that floor not going home for Christmas.

All in all it was a positive experience.  We lived through our first medical emergency and we learned a ton.  We learned that ER visits can be avoided if we catch the bark early on and do the old steam bath to cold air treatment.  We learned that the crying caused by sucking the snot out of his nose is much better than the barking sound if we don’t do it.  We learned Frank gets Clarence the Clown hair after a steam bath.  We learned Frank digs nurses.

We also learned how to use a nebulizer, which delivered medicine directly to Frank’s lungs in a mist type fashion.  We were told it would probably be a battle to get him to keep the mask on.  It was…because he wanted to put the hose directly in his mouth.  Well, he sucked on the hose for the entire run of the medicine, 7 minutes a treatment, a few times a day for 10 days I think.  Pediatrician just shook her head and told us that’s the most effective way it’s just a little unconventional, as in not normal.

Hmm, unconventional, so he does have some of my wife’s family DNA after all.

GOP Primary: The southern dust settles

Santorum enjoyed his big win in the South last night for less than an hour.  Then it was off to Puerto Rico in search of delegates.  Rick is trying to find the math.  He’s worried and he should be.  Of course you wouldn’t know that if you watched the news, left wing, right wing or otherwise.  They all touted the Southern Sweep as a huge game changer, that Romney is now on the ropes.  While he may not admit it publicly, Rick knows what you and I both know: delegates matter, not state wins.

Here’s the issue, last night Santorum won Alabama and Mississippi.  That’s a big achievement, especially when you consider by comparison to Mitt and Newt, Santorum is dirt poor.  However, you run the race your given.  With the 4 delegates he won in Hawaii Santorum won a grand total of 32 delegates.  Romney finished 3rd in Alabama and Mississippi, 1st in Hawaii and American Samoa, and took a grand total of 37 delegates.  Wait a minute, Mitt won more delegates last night?!? No, no, Santorum won, I saw it on the news.  Yes Virginia you did, but the TV media defines winning differently.  It’s hard to make snazzy graphics and thrilling music for a delegate victory, winning states is much more sexy and easier to pimp on TV.

Here’s the other thing Santorum knows.  His southern wins means nothing if he can’t get the nomination.  Mitt will win the South in the general election against President Obama.  There are several reasons for this, the least of which are, in my opinion, race and religion.

So Rick knows he can’t really use the “I won the south and Romney can’t” line because everyone knows that’s not true.  Whatever is being said about Romney by his own party right now will be dust in the wind if Mitt wins the nomination.  No matter the kerfuffle over Mitt’s moderate political positions, republicans will get in line and vote the President out of office.  Rick can say Romney is unelectable as much as he want’s, he knows it’s not true.

So Santorum trails Mitt by over 200 delegates and he is running out of states, hence the trip to Puerto Rico.  Catching Mitt is not impossible, but it’s not probable.

My fear is Santorum will do the improbable.

 

Missouri and Puerto Rico vote over the weekend, then the big Illinois primary on Tuesday.

As always Frank’s Place will detail the results.  Delegate count update below.

Count includes MS, AL, HI, & Amer. Samoa

GOP Primary: Santorum Sweeps – Newt Weeps – Mitt ….wins?

Yes Mitt quietly has won the delegate count tonight.  More on that in a bit.

Rick Santorum pulls off the Southern trifecta, winning Tennessee last week along with Mississippi and Alabama tonight.  Huge night for him.  He has a long term money problem but he just took a major step toward fixing that.  He has a longer term delegate count.  He took zero steps toward fixing that tonight.

Santorum won both state primaries tonight  but he got no more than 35% of the vote in either state.  Newt and Mitt both came in around 32-33% in both states.   What does all that mean.  It means all three men will divide up the delegates by thirds.  Santorum will get the left overs after the even split.  So Rick gained no ground.  He actually lost ground and will lose some more.  The caucus in American Samoa is over and Mitt won that and takes all 9 of the delegates.   If Romney wins Hawaii later tomorrow morning, 2Am to be exact, he will pad his lead even more.

Remember, delegates, delegates, delegates is the key to the primary.  Winning states means nothing if you can’t get a majority of the delegates.   1144 is the number.  First one there wins.  Mitt’s lead has actually grown tonight even though he lost the publicity fight.  There are advantages to winning both states.  If the numbers were the same but Mitt won, there would be a call for the other two bananas to get out and focus on the President.

Even Rick knows the numbers are working against him.  Key sign that Rick has been doing the math; his victory speech tonight was from Louisiana where he was campaigning and right after the speech Rick hopped on a plane to Puerto Rico, a place he said he would not campaign.  Why,  he needs the delegates and Mitt has been lapping up the delegates of all the US Territories.   Santorum’s victories tonight will add fuel to the fire that he is the only conservative in the race, thus prolonging the fight.  But he can’t get the delegates to avoid a floor fight.  He can only block Mitt from getting the nomination.  If Santorum can get Newt to drop out before Illinois, he may have a shot at gaining some ground.  If not….

Newt, who only last week was saying he had to win the southern states to stay viable, is now saying he is the only one who can beat President Obama.  He says this after finishing 2nd in Alabama and a likely 3rd in Mississippi.   Newt is currently doing a very awkward and painful interview on Fox news.  A great question from Bret Baier.  “Which states can you win after not winning the south?”  Newt says they’re looking at Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia.  Great Newt and after you only get a percentage of the 85 delegates between all three states, where will you get the other 800 you need to win?

Saturday and Sunday are the Missouri and Puerto Rico caucuses and then the Illinois primary is Tuesday the 20th.  69 delegates in Illinois.  Mitt has already spent 2+ mil in ad buys and campaign stuff in Illinois.  The other two guys have spent a grand total of $0.00 American dollars there.   Should be another great night.

Hawaii results and updated delegate count first thing tomorrow.
