Open for discussion.
Deer in the headlights look by all of them LOL
Now you’re talking!
I actually voted for Gingrich tonight but I’m glad to see Santo take out Romney.
Do you have a link for that ad? I missed it.
your caucus elected delegates to the state convention who will choose the national delegates.
So the initial step in the process was tonite. it was BINDING. as binding as binding can get.
Take a look at the CNN county map for Colorado. Except in the Denver area and the northwest nearest the CO/UT/WY border, it’s a sea of blue (Santorum)
Thank you pollywog! What a refreshing way to end the day!
Good Night to you too!
Maybe we should print it in huge colored letters and send it by mail. CAN YOU HEAR US NOW?
Mitt, just can't speak like it is from the heart.. He is like a stepford husband!
Yes and SIgn it “WE THE PEOPLE”
GReat night for Rick and America. Stick a silver fork in Rombama.
okay, i wanna start a new rule.
unless you know as much as or more than a ronPaulista about caucuses ... then you are not allowed to call yourself a conservative.
call yourself a con-Dolt.
It’s not the typical anti-conservative types Rick has to worry about. It’s the nominal Republican/conservatives. Did you not see what they did to Newt in FL? They will do the same to Rick. This is all about the GOP establishment asserting itself.
Absolutely right! Rick is not our enemy (those of us who support Newt); neither is it the other way ‘round. I’m very happy for Rick.
Team effort: destroy Mitt then destroy the Emperor with no clothes in the White House.
LOL; Bray also said that earlier. I’d love to see it. Rather Willard than Newt.
But not going to happen, but he’s shaken. Question is: Will Newt drop out?
I don’t quite know either how there could be such a shift from Newt to Rick in so short a time. I think that what this proves is that Newt and Rick are appealing largely to the exact same audience. When one goes up, the other must come down. They never finish 1st and 2nd in line, but 1st/3rd or 1st/4th.
Why did Rick surge? Newt seems to have run into huge money troubles after blowing his wad in Florida. He didn’t seem to put in the campaign effort here and he had no debates to benefit from for free coverage. Rick seemed to put in a real effort campaigning in these states.
Although it’s been a while since the last debates, Newt arguably had his worst two debates in Florida, while Santorum landed at least a couple strong punches on both Newt and Mitt. Those performances may have been sinking into people’s minds.
Santorum did get some recent endorsements since Florida...Michelle Malkin, Sharon Angle, and I think there was another decent one.
Maybe the story of him going to be with his sick daughter humanized him in a way that hadn’t happened to any of the candidates so far.
And certainly the news cycle of the economy improving but with the huge controversy over Obamacare and the church taking center stage...well, you couldn’t find a better issue for Santorum to run on, combining both Obamacare which he hammered in the last debate with a social issue that would motivate his base of religious conservatives to get out and vote.
This is good news all around. Hey, Mitt-wit, you got the MSM, and the Money BUT NOT THE PEOPLE!!
Hey media, there's your beauty contest, right there. Bella wins, no contest.
Good job Dad. Go Newt
