Romney clinches GOP nomination with Texas primary win



Mitt Romney clinched the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday with a win in the Texas primary, a triumph of endurance for a candidate who came up short four years ago and had to fight hard this year as voters flirted with a carousel of GOP rivals.

According to the Associated Press count, Romney surpassed the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination by winning at least 88 delegates in the Texas primary.

Let the games, or shall I say the campaigns begin.

Yeah, notwithstanding Trump trying to spew his "birther" message again. He shouldn't quit his day job.

Looks like Scott Walker will survive the recall vote. War on the unions to continue on.

The Supreme Court rules that the main aspects of Obama's health care bill are upheld. I bet the Chief Justice is going to have choice words aimed at him from those who sees the ruling as "attacking liberty", says Romney.

However, that situation could go out the window, if the Republicans manage to win both Houses and the presidency at the same time. But, strange things always happen in politics and law.

The economy will be the overall issue Americans care about more than this ruling about American health care. It will help people in need generally, but there seems to be loopholes waiting in the wings to be secretly exploited by those in the know.

Oh, boy. I hope Romney is not getting his "good advice" from you-know-who. If this is true, it is going to be Obama's "I told you so moment."

BREAKING: Romney to announce vice presidential pick Saturday

By NBC's Domenico Montanaro and Mark Murray

Mitt Romney will announce his vice-presidential selection tomorrow, according to the campaign.
Though the campaign gave no indication of who it could be, the campaign said in a press release the former Massachusetts governor would announce his selection at 8:45 am ET in Norfolk, VA, the first stop on his swing-state bus tour.

The campaign says the announcement will be in front of the U.S.S. Wisconsin -- which just happens to be the home state of potential VP Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee.

As First Read reported earlier this week, the VP finalists appear to be Ryan, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman.
There has been a lot of smoke surrounding Ryan in the past few days. Washington economic conservatives have pushed for his selection. Romney told NBC's Chuck Todd he was looking for someone with "a vision for the country," who "adds something to the political discourse about the direction of the country.”

Friday night, the Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol and Stephen Hayes reported: "[T]he Romney campaign has begun to prepare a vigorous effort in support of Paul Ryan if he is selected as Mitt Romney’s vice presidential pick—something now likely to happen soon. For example, GOP officials tell The Weekly Standard that Wisconsin governor Scott Walker is among a group of Republicans who has been asked to be ready, in terms of his schedule and other practical preparations, to make the case publicly for a Romney-Ryan ticket as early as Saturday."

The big money seems to be on Paul Ryan from Wisconsin.

Now that the Olympic Games are over, it is "back to your regular scheduled program" now.
