Brett Baier uses the phrase “beauty contest” three times in one minute. Michele Bachmann then uses it twice.

You think 0bama’s SS will actually protect Santorum or Newt? Really?

If Santorum wins both MN and CO its gonna be tough for Newt.

Newt has to become more than a 1 trick pony(Debates).

Course if Santorum wins both then Mittens has to move some of the attack money off of Newt and onto Rick.

I just dont see Rick winning the GE.

We also voted on resolutions to the MN Rep. platform— all of them passed, including adding the right to keep and bear arms; support of Israel as our ally; and specific language against adapting any type of Sharia law or allowing such to supersede the US Constitution.

God bless MN! Great news.

We were all being asked to jump on the Romney band wagon because he was getting 30% or so in small primaries or caucuses.

Here we have Santorum going OVER 50% in more than one primary/caucus.

At the same time Gingrich didn't even enter one of them.

Frankly, it doesn't look like there's any substance to Romney's campaign when it comes to Republican voters.

If this becomes a referendum on Obama vs the Christians, and the silent majority rises up, Rick could do very well.

Newt would make an amazing V.P. in the Jack Kemp/Dick Cheney/Sarah Palin mold but his debating talents would be severely wasted on Joe Biden.

Santorum is probably the best to take on Obama he does not have the sleeze factor like newt and Romney do and he has passion and blue UE collar appeal.

For me, if Newt or Rick lost to Obama I could at least be proud that we put up a fight. Romney vs Obama would be lose/lose either way with no bit of pride involved.

Obama is a communist as your tag line says.

Obama is piling on trillions more in debt on us, letting in millions of immigrants, growing the government , sending our jobs to China,censoring the Internet with ACTA, and has committed many other crimes against America.Obama must be impeached.

Obama has gone around the Senate and signed a treaty worse than SOPA. It is called ACTA and it will censor and destroy the Internet:

Most of the pollsters didn’t see Rick winning Iowa. He was in single digits a few days before the election and was outspent nearly 10:1 by Romney alone!

we all would over mitt I'm sure but divided they will fall and I don't see brokered convention working for us...maybe I am wrong...

Delegates are establishment types.

I bet in a brokered convention, they vote for Jeb or Mitch or somebody like that.

I could live with the results if Mitt and Newt take each other out and Rick slides in there. If that was the case, then IMHO Newt will have done something great for his country.

Agreed.

Are you kidding? I doubt Palin would ever run with Buchanan. Ron Paul would make a much more compatible pairing with Buchanan. They both share similar opinions on Israel and the Middle East. In other words, they both hate the Joooooooos.

An observation.... SeeBS would report results with cut-ins during prime time programming in previous primaries/caucuses when Willard was winning... tonight? Zip. Nada. Bupkiss. And interesting... If anyone was wondering if media is in the tank for Willard and Zero, this should be it.

That’s what the media says about Buchanan. The media has smeared Buchanan, Palin, Reagan, Cain, Gingrich etc.

You go ahead and believe the liberal media.

Buchanan was right on illegals. He has said for 20 years to treat it as an invasion and repell it. Also right on not trading with Communist China, etc.

My little Minnesota city, Watertown, had record turnout tonight. We also sponsored the meeting place for three other caucuses from Mayer, and Watertown and Hollywood Townships. 125 very angry about 0bama, and VERY motivated people showed up!

In my caucus, it was 4 for Newt, 4 for Romney, 10 for Paul and 31 for Santorum. I’m still waiting to hear the results from the other three (they were still going when we left). I imagine they had similar results.

I voted for Newt but could easily support Santorum. I have a feeling Romney’s going to get pummeled here. Yay!

Well it is only one debate and Newt better do a million times better or he might as well pack it in. He is now the only candidate to have only 1 state in his pocket. Maine is next on Saturday and not sure how that will play out but could be Romney (yuk). Then Arizona and Michigan which who knows what will happen.

Agree even If we lost with Santorum in the GE at least we went down fighting.

Its possible Newt and Santorum may have worked out an agreement to both stay in till the convention and deny Mittens enough delegate to clench the nomination.

Then the merge as one ticket instead of Mittens.

If they begin to draw their bunches against one another while both hammering Mittens we may see.

Newt/Santorum or Santorum/Newt I could proudly support.

Santorum, I am convinced, is the prime beneficiary of the White House attack on the Catholic Church in the last 72 hours. It even has them backtracking now. But too late. They have angered people too much and they are turning out for Santorum in earnest. Make no mistake. This is a backlash. Romney cannot channel that anger toward Obama.
