    i have thought, for quite some time now, tha the GOP/TEAbaggers know that they cannot stop President obama's re-election this year....so they are just making a token effort for this election and will bring out the "Real Candidates" for 2016.

    the GOP/TEAbaggers will spend FOUR MORE YEARS being "the party of NO", thwarting every move the democrats make to save and improve our country....just to make our sitting President look bad.

    Santorum thanked God. So God decided to let Romney beat him by 8 votes.

    God decided, I will grant you 8 votes short of being Number 1.

    This is what Santorum believes God, creator of the universe, is doing with his time?

    The social conservatives are clearly in the minority when you consider Romney and Ron Paul, 1st and 3rd place.

    The problem is that the fundies are an essential voting block.

    Santorum will not be edging out Romney to get even close to the nomination. I'm more concerned though that if his performance in the primaries is strong that he could become a V.P. possibility...something that wouldn't make me happy either. I've posted in many threads what I think of Santorum...

    Ron Paul got half of all voters under 30.

    Shows the libertarian future of the party.

    Which party? It was an open primary... 80% of Paul's votes came from indies and democrats.

    Incidentally, it's funny to see that even when Dems and Indies get to vote, Hunstman - the allegedly awesome and reasonable and totally great candidate everyone left of Karl Rove loves - gets about 100 votes.

    Care to back up that 80% figure?

    And the future of the GOP is what I'm talking about, obviously.
