You know that our campaign is more than about replacing the president. It’s about saving the soul of America.
New Hampshire primary winner Mitt Romney • Who claims that Obama wants to turn the U.S. into a “European-style social state,” whatever that means.

Mitt Romney on winning New Hampshire: "What defines us as Americans is our unwavering conviction that it must be better and it will be better. That conviction guides our campaign." … "The president has run out of ideas … now he’s running out of excuses."

That was fast: New Hampshire primary already called for Romney

More info as we get it. Obviously, the real story here is who gets second and third, honestly.

UPDATE: The L.A. Times reports that Romney’s victory is the first time a non-sitting Republican presidential candidate won both New Hampshire and Iowa. Really, the race should be more interesting in South Carolina, where it probably won’t get called so quickly.

Rick Santorum could get a Newt endorsement if Gingrich drops out

  • whoa! According to Rick Santorum-associated officials in South Carolina, if Newt Gingrich drops out of the race anytime soon, he would likely endorse the former Pennsylvania senator’s (and longtime fan’s) campaign.
  • however … Even though Newt is totally looking like a dog in New Hampshire, don’t look for him to drop out anytime soon — he’s polling relatively decently in the Palmetto State, though he polled better about a month ago. source

On why the Union Leader ads cross a line

mbimotmog says: Not really sure how this “crosses a line”…did the Union Leader create new ad space just for the purpose of allowing Obama to advertise or did the Obama campaign simply buy the biggest placement that the UL offered?

» SFB says: To explain, the problem we see with the Obama ads is that they’re so large that they overwhelm the rest of the content, which means that it’s having an adverse effect on the journalism. It feels like the financial gain overtook the ethics in this case. It’s not as bad as the DM Register, but it’s clearly intended on counteracting the news. When an ad is that large, the lines between advertising and editorial start to blur — which is less of a problem when the ads aren’t political. But in this case, the ads are very much intended to counteract the news of the day. Obama should be free to spend wherever he wants. But the newspaper should know when to say no to an ad request.  — Ernie @ SFB

Dear Union Leader: You’re a newspaper. Like the Des Moines Register, no matter how much the Obama campaign pays, you know this crosses a line.

So Newt had to cancel an appearance today … because some apparent Ron Paul supporters (who may have been Occupy sympathizers) swarmed the entrance of his New Hampshire campaign HQ. Here’s a pic of them in action, via Capital Tonight.

Our callout for Citizen Journalism on Tumblr is now on every story on HuffPost. Just tag your reporting “OfftheBus” and we’ll consider it for inclusion on OfftheBus New Hampshire or our national OTB liveblog.

Great idea on the part of HuffPo/Patch.

Entitlements are not rights.
Ron Paul, narrowing down the libertarian philosophy to four words. Paul notes that “the rich people” get entitlements usually, not the poor.
