MITT IS FINISHED. THERE ARE NO MORE STATES HE CAN HIDE BEHIND and get a free mormon ride. He is now in Cowboy country, and we know B.S. when we smell it.

Only 79% in, winning by only 500, but Colorado Springs / El Paso County is 0% reporting; I guess CNN figures that that’s going for Santorum.

I’m waiting for the “Santorum is just a stalking horse for Mitt” comments...some stalking horse...he’s stalking all right

Yep. Noticed that mittbot template here since Iowa. I just have to read the anti-Santorum headline and know the source. We even have a couple on this thread. ;-)

I have to admit not being crazy about Santorum due to his lack of being a fiscal Conservative. I also found him to be arrogant whiney and snooty in the earlier debates that could be due to nervousness and inexperience.

With that said, I would crawl over glass while taking fire overhead to vote for him against Obama. If Romney wins, I will vote for the Green candidate, much to my chagrin.

Go Rick! Your win tonight is a win for the American People. This is truly a jubilant night. He WILL win Colorado.

Colorado Springs and Fort Collins have a large block of votes left to report. They are both very conservative areas, but things aren't breaking very clearly.

The final margin could be very close - perhaps less than 0.5 percent. Maybe the 25 people who showed up for the Sterling, Colorado caucus will decide the result...

In Colorado, delegates are not bound. At the state convention, we elect a slate of delegates to the national convention - each delegate running for the national convention declare who they will support at the national convention and they are voted for. So, for example, in my precinct the prefernce poll vote was pretty much split Romney/Santorum. Our one delegate to the state convention was a Romney delegate, as was the alternate.

With 83% in CNN shows Santorum up by 484 without El Paso Co. Unless they just haven’t updated their map, I agree: It’s over!!

Congratulations to Santorum. Not particularly a huge fan of his, but so happy that Romney didn’t get it. Still too early to tell how all this is going to play out, but if Rick ends up being the man, I’ll support him enthusiastically.

Just can’t think of a better way to celebrate! I am so bursting with joy!

Abide with me: fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide!
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see:
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

I need Thy presence ev’ry passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness:
Where is death’s sting? where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies;
Heav’n’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

Fox had mentioned that Romney lost some country to Santorum and they were saying that did not bode well for Romney. That told me that Santorum would probably win. I watched the numbers jump and put Romney ahead and thought “NO!” Then they all began to come in for Santorum. YAHOOOOOOOO!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS RICK SANTORUM. I’ve been so depressed lately trying not to believe that romney would be anointed. Tonight I see hope. Thank you Rick S. I am backing Newt, but if the two of them can tag team romney out of the race, I will vote for the one of them who has the lead.

“GOPEe Heads are exploding all over the east coast.”

YES they are! lol; lol; lol;

5% point win! Time to give Santorum SS protection. lol

Have you noticed the times when Romney ran into a little trouble, his overweening confidence seemed to evaporate. It was noticeable to me. This is so important.

Pundit comments:

Blitzer kept saying if Santorum wins CO, it will be an earthquake. Gergen keeps saying, I never saw this coming.

Now Brazille is saying, Mitt Romney has a problem. I am shocked Repubs rejected him in all three states.

LOL.. Now Santorum gets money, credibility, and media exposure.

Newt is gasping for air.

The talking heads don’t live in PA. Santorum lost to Casey because of a lot of “other” reasons. Casey’s father was a popular pro-life governor who had recently passed away and a lot of Conservatives were upset because Santorum remained loyal to the party and endorsed Specter. There was also a lot of sentiment to rebuke Bush, and Santorum suffered for it.
