Which is why Mitt Romney HATES Georgia.

Guess not many Romney fans in Georgia.

Romney hates Georgia and Georgia hates Romney.

"And now little Ricky is starting to backpeddle on his Title 20 - another Santorum idea to spend more money and expand government. It’s what he does. Always.

Well, all should be happy then when Romney's the nominee because that's what this is going to boil down to. Newt will pick up enough support in the next two races to stop Santorum and Mitt will beat both. Yippee!

Santorum getting boooed again for ringing his own bell and bragging about himself. Blabbering on off of other candidates original ideas........Typical Santorum.

Papa Paul is shaving him down to a size 2.

Professor Newt is taking command of this debate while the others are tagging along....This is fantastic!

The audience just booed Santorum coparison of Romneycare and Obamacare. Totally stacked audience. Ridiculous.

There’s a reason they seated Santorum in between Paul and Romney. They ganged up on him. Newt looks good tonight.

Santorum just pointed out correctly that Romneycare was the model for Obamacare, and the audience loudly booed him.

Audience is full of Mormons, no doubt about it.

Now they’re cheering wildly for Mittens.

Can anyone here imagine Santorum debating Obama?

Mitt nails Santorum on Spector over Toomey, a deciding vote on ObamaCare.

Rick is done.

He just doesn’t have the correct composure, even though what he says makes sense to those of us that can think critically.

Now, this is one reason exactly why I, and FR support Newt.

These are not problems for him. He will almost always speak eloquently.

Not necessarily - I do not buy your premise. Rick refused to bow out when Newt needed the support and look what happened. It can happen again.

Not buying your argument at all. Non starter.

Mittens remind Santorum that he endorsed him in 2008.

Now, Mittens is hitting Santo for endorsing Snarl’n Specter.

Santo hitting him back for Obama/Romney care.
