Posted on 02/07/2012 7:27:28 PM PST by AmericanInTokyo
By MICHAEL R. CRITTENDEN And NEIL KING JR. Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum handily won Missouri's primary election Tuesday night and was showing signs of strength in Minnesota's caucuses, threatening to deal national front-runner Mitt Romney a setback in two Midwestern states.
With results from Colorado just trickling in, the returns from the other two states holding nominating contests Tuesday looked to give a jolt of momentum to Mr. Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator.

The media? At least 3/4 of FR, including JimRob, has been telling us Newt was the only valid alternative to Mitt.
You sure are rude. Not exactly sure why you are attacking everyone.
Rick giving his speech live now.
Low voter turnout and btw...how many delegates does Little Ricky have now? wait until he is vetted before the public and the next REAL election in MO. Debate on Feb 28th. Lots of folks I talked to said they wanted Newt on the Mo ballet...voted for Santorum to block Romney. A vote for Santorum is a vote for Romney...Little vest man ain’t going nowhere...take that to the bank
And Clint Eastwood does a spot for Chrysler so now he’s a Barry butt suckin lib lover...
It all means what you want it to mean anymore...
for me, I’m glad Santorum had a good day for a change...
So you can’t understand why “Newtbots” aren’t too upset (as in “take that”) when Santorum beats Newt in a caucus when he wasn’t even on the ballot officially?
And you denigrate the intelligence of others?
PS The owner of this site is a “Newtbot.” I’m sure he might be happy to explain it to you...
GAME ON! FEAR...the VEST!
Wow...over-reaction or what.
Simply stating the fact. What...you can’t handle fact?
Are you from Missouri? Did you see the polls last week? What part of my comment is ‘pathetic’ (to you)?
You jab at Newt supporters and call my post pathetic...wow you vote too. How depressing.
Nice broad brush you have there. Any other thoughts on “Freepers” you would like to share?
Did you tell those voters newt blew off Missouri as unimportant and didnt want to put up the simple $1000 to get on the ballot??
How many of those were decided by voter fraud, I don't know. GWB carried it both times despite Jesse Jackson's shenanigans to keep some polling places open later than they were supposed to be (I forget if that was in 2000 or 2004).
Missouri got to vote for President before it was officially admitted to the Union--it voted in the 1820 election (all of its votes went to Monroe, who won the electoral college 231 to 1), even though it wasn't officially a state until August 1821.
“Hopefully, he wont just inherit the crap storm from the lamestream and gop elite.”
On moral/social conservative issues, Rick is the real deal. So, they will pillor him for being anti-choice and anti-homosexual. If Santorum can win, I’m all for it. I’m primarily a moral/social conservative myself. I support Newt because I think he is more balanced and likely to get elected. However, I would love to have Santorum run and win. Right now, he is doing the party a favor by blunting Romney’s recent wins.
Don’t forget to count me! Go NEWT!
I heard it reported this morning that both Newt and Rick had agreed they would both stay in the race until the convention and had arrived at some sort of truce/detente/whatever. Hopefully, that is correct and they can both keep their “guns” leveled on Team Mitt.
Good Job Rick!!!
Now, that right there is funny, folks.
Especially since Santorum, like any other candidate who comes out of the box trolling for the evangelical vote, is trying to appeal to the bottom 10% of the electoral IQ spectrum.
Such candidates are just as fake as the TV preachers they emulate.
Delegates will be selected later by another process.
Gingrich didn't even put up the $1000 filing fee.
So... I AM HAPPY FOR SANTORUM, and PROUD he is fighting like there is not tomorrow...
To Newt, recharge your batteries, and let it rip... just go down fighting if you must... give your all, that is all I ask of you. GO NEWT, GO RICK!
GO "Real" CONSERVATIVES GO!... (fiscal + moral values) and DOWN with the LEFTIES (ESTABLISHMENT) of the Republican party.
I WILL N-E-V-E-R VOTE For FLIP-FLOPPER...EVER!...
I suggest we control ourselves and hold our fire against both Newt and Santorum.
I’m for Newt but I’m glad Santorum beat Romney. If Santorum can actually get some momentum and beat Romney, I will be grateful.
If Newt can make a comeback on super Tuesday, I will be more grateful.
But I’m not gonna slam either of them right now.
We need to be slamming Obama.
LOL, at least you don't have to worry about someone coming along and destroying you on this topic. You already took care of that.
