All Newt’s speeches are works of art. The guy is brilliant!! That’s why it is so dam frustrating he is not in the lead.

No problem.....While Gingrich is correct regarding delegate counts and is making a terrific speech, if he does suspend his campaign, how does Santorum fare against Romney in a two person race?

[ The majority of the states remaining are not Mitt-friendly states, beginning with Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, and Indiana ]

You forgot KS caucus on Sat. I think Santorum will win, but I’m hoping Newt will. I’m voting Newt nd dragging others along with me to o the same. 40 delegates. I believe 25 go to overall and remainder by congressional district.

Newt just made the case for$2.50 a gallon gas.The way he laid out the case $2.50 is very conservative it could go lower.

Even if Newt loses, he will still be around in some way to contribute. WE need a mind like this close to the President, if nothing else!

I hope Santorum wins Ohio, this would really put a major hurt on Romney.

And increase the chances of a Brokered Convention as well.

Santorum is not in the same league with Newt. They have far different IQ’s. Take away his vest and he’s a double digit loser in his home state.

I am tell you, Santorum has the fight, this guy is for real. I hope and pray he really does take OHIO. There is a God (regardless).

Rick is the "MALE" Sarah Palin. You can see his crowd there on Fox (online), same kind of great people, same kind of bedrock Americans, same kind of country/patriotic campaign music. This takes me back to 2008 when, even disgusted with McCain as I was, I always got a kick out of Sarah Palin's rambunctious campaign events that were streamed online.

RICK SANTORUM IS THE GUY TO STOP ROMNEY. EAGLES UP.

Santorum is great! He knows foreign affairs better than most including Obama. He’d make a wonderful President and he’d turn this country back toward the Constitution.

Fox has Santorum ahead in the vote count in Ohio. 81908 to 80594

And precious Willard outspent him 12 to 1. Reminds me of that line in "Happy Gilmour"

[speaking to Shooter McGee after making his first drive of the championship] Do you know what the pathetic thing is? I've just started playing. You have been doing this your whole life.

That reminds me of the late Senator Roman Hruska, R-NE, who once made the odd remark that even the mediocre need representation too. It may be that many of our little Republican primary voters feel threatened by Newt’s intellectualism.

I think it’s a proportional delegate count....Heard Santorum could win popular vote, but come away with less delegates than Romney because Santorum only filled 75% of the “slate” for delegates.

You're right, Santorum is in the winners bracket and Newt is in the losers bracket except for his home state which he won fair and square.

IQ is a poor predictor for the efficacy of a president. In fact, a case can be made against having presidents with high IQs.

Thanks very much, TitansAFC!!

Something to be “cheerful” about.

No Romney, no way!

He’s ruined this primary with his venom and vicious attack ads against his rivals.

His lust for this nomination and power is insatiable.

He’s evil.

I’ll never for for him.
