In last Monday night's post-debate interview with Hannity in Myrtle Beach, Santorum called Newt's Social Security privatization plan an "entitlement program" because it entitles people to keep money they would otherwise pay to the government.

I went immediately from someone who would have been very happy to see Santorum get the nomination (due to his *correct* stance on the social issues) to someone opposed.

Doesn't he get it -- that it contributes to the break-up of the family when the government takes away the money that taxpayers would otherwise spend taking care of their families?

Good grief, you don’t suppose our thread discussion of last night was picked up and brought out the ....... Romney/Paul/RINO/Axlerod/bots & machines out do you?

There is going to be plenty of ammunition suitable for the use all sides. We may as well be braced for the kitchen sink coming at us all by Newt’s enemies and ours. An imperfect pol for sure, but at least willing to fight at any and all personal and public cost to himself. We are also willing by now, I believe. :)

Giving illegal aliens free college tuition is such a great conservative policy. Since I'm totally against it, I guess that makes me cold and heartless, as Rick Perry would say.

I can't stand either Mitt or Newt, and will not vote for either in the primary. As I said, I'll do a write in if those are my only choices in the California primary. That said, I'll do the right thing and vote for who ever of the two is the Republican nominee. I'll just have to hold my nose, have a barf bag ready, and make sure I have plenty of Preparation H stocked up. Weather it's Obama, Romney, or Gingrich, it looks like I'll have the wonderful choice of getting screwed by either a big government progressive Democrat, or a big government progressive Republican.

Jeez, can't we conservatives do better than Romney and Gingrich? By the way, before you people accuse me of being a Paultard, I won't vote for him period, even if Romney and Gingrich met some unfortunate fate, and he became the nominee. Ron Paul is even more bat$#!!t crazy on foregn policy than Obama.

it’s reasonable that RICk wants to stay in. He ought to go somewhere that NEWT is not mounting a challenge and start fresh taking on MITT. Not sure where that would be. MINN? MICH?

Florida makes no sense.


a little gloating for me.

On 1/21 did i give some indication of the 2/7 Santorum surge? See post #10.
