Mitt Romney's victories Tuesday in Arkansas and Kentucky may have been foregone conclusions, but besides two more batches of delegates on his way to the 1,144 he needs to clinch the Republican presidential nomination, they also gave him something else - bragging rights over usurper Obama.
In Kentucky, Romney, who is expected to clinch the nomination after the Texas primary on May 29, received a higher percentage of the vote in the Republican presidential primary than Obama received in the Democratic presidential primary. With 99.9 percent of precincts reporting, Romney had 67 percent of the vote, while Obama had 58 percent - compared to "uncommitted," which received 42 percent, according to The Associated Press.
In Arkansas, results are still in the early stages of being counted, but with 33 percent of precincts reporting, Obama has 61.5 percent of the vote, and his Democratic challenger, John Wolfe, a lawyer from Tennessee, has 38.5 percent. Romney, comparatively, has received 69.5 percent of the vote, the AP reported.
Arkansas and Kentucky are not considered competitive states in the general election; ABC News rates both states as solid Republican. Nevertheless, the strong showing by "uncommitted" and a relatively unknown candidate in his own party's primary could be viewed as an embarrassment for Obama, particularly coming on the heels of the strong performance of federal inmate Keith Judd in West Virginia's primary earlier this month.
Lou Buren of TWAU BLOG: I predicted it in a previous posting, and I'll predict it again now. Obama will lose to Romney by a land-slide. It won't be a close race, it'll be a total destruction of of the Obama regime.
It's time the American people expel the illegal usurper from our white house. And before that wonderful day comes in November we also have a sweet piece of info coming from the supreme court around July. They will strike down the individual mandate in ObamaCare and freedom will once again reign supreme. 2012 will be a bad year for Obama and a good year for America.
God bless you all, and God bless America.
