Rick was double teamed by that sneaky, lying Ron Paul and Swiss Mitt in the debate last night. I know that Sant Rick is an oreo: Repub on the outside and Dem on the inside. But I think he makes more sense than the others. I can’t stand that Ron Paul and fast forwarded him….What a lying hypocrite he is. If I were voting for a GOP contender (my word for them) I would vote for Rick. But too bad Obama beats them by a mile.

Mitt Romney LOSES BIG in Missouri, Colorado and Minneapolis after a mini super Tuesday in the Midwest last night. The final results of the caucauses and non binding primaries was not in until after midnight.
But early on Santorum was the big winner in Missouri and it was on, politically speaking.
I wrote that Santorum could be the stealth contender this year as Obama was in 2008. This dull contest is actually getting exciting. I would vote for anybody but MITT.

In case you missed it the economy is improving and Obama’s chances of winning reelection have moved into the 51% range.
I too was skeptical about giving him another term mostly for two reasons: his lack of effectiveness on creating jobs and the appointees he’s made on the SCOTUS and his cabinet.
Dems look like clowns too when it comes getting the right man into the right job. They have damn near fired everyone they hired! Valerie Jarrett is a mainstay.
Mitt is expected to speak shortly after being declared the winner of the Florida primary. Does he have 15 million to spend in every state he competes in ?

Recall that this man Mitt has been running for president for like 8 years. Has only won ONE election in a state he was not born in! Where is this man from? He was born in Mexico but ain’t Mexican and thought his family was from Utah but he ends up in Boston, Mass running for senate (defeated) and Gov one term and now president. Will the GOP give it to him out of pity?
Mitt Romney has spent 15 million to defeat Newt Gingrich in Florida because it is a winner take all primary. That’s too bad that anyone has to spend that kind of money and those types of negative ads to drop the other contender.
Florida is not the end. It seems so because of all the delegates. If Newt does not have the money then how can he go on. Only in America would you get a Mitt v Newt strange first names.
in south Carolina primary.

Ouch! Gingrich took a big bite out of John King’s butt last night for asking that question or rather gossip on the stump about his ex saying that Newt wanted an open marriage. He let King have it right between the eyes.
After last night’s debate and Gingrich came out the clear winner. Santorum did well for himself attacking both Mitt and Newt simultaneously. He’s a bad ass that Santorum. But I predicted more than once that Newt would win the GOP nomination. After many fits and starts he is gaining on the field.
According to the latest polls Gingrich is leading Romney by like 6 points in South Carolina. The voting begins on Saturday.
In the debate John King opened by asking about the gossip from Newt’s ex wife. WTF was the common response. No one wanted to touch that one. King was wrong for asking that one. The debated turned to illegal immigration in the end and everyone sort of agreed that people need to go back home and get in line. We are also so happy that Perry took himself out of the race.
Saturday should be interesting. Remember when Obama won SC.
PS my two stock picks BAC and SIRI have both gained over a dollar in the last weeks.
Perry dropped a political bomb after stating that he would go forward in S. Carolina has dropped out of the race and plans to endorse Newt Gingrich rather than Rick Santorum. Perry has been urged to drop out of the race so that conservatives could rally around anyone but Mitt Romney. Santorum appears to have high marks for being the best or true conservative candidate.
Rick may even prove more electable than Newt. Rick needs a really good showing in this SC race to pull ahead of Mitt. Mitt has too much money. His pocket change is 8 million in the Caymans where most people don’t have an extra 800 dollars laying around.

Mitt Romney at times looked pitiful when Rick Santorum was berating him over some of his policies when he was the governor of Massachusetts namely the law regarding felons, convicted or time served having their voting rights re instated. We heard Rick use the term “African Americans” a bunch of times as he made his point. He pointed out to Romney that he was a flip flopper when he voted against a law that wrongly keeps blacks out of the voting both over other races due to their percentage-wise higher rate of incarceration.
It was one of the better debates. Ron Paul needs to get out of the race. As I indicated Rick Santorum is a rising star. And Huntsman endorsing Mitt really does not amount to a hill of beans,
Oh, and how could I forget the fireworks between Newt Gingrich and Juan Williams? That was interesting. Newt talked down to Juan like Southern men often do to blacks. The audience was party to the beating that Juan took by booing him. At first I thought they were booing Newt but it soon became clear that they were booing old Juan. What is Juan exactly? He talks like a Dem but walks like a Repub? He is in the crosshairs simply because he is not conservative enough and the good white folks know that he used to be Dem, so I heard.
Juan you need to get off the fence and stop pretending to be a conservative. You can be an Independent if you want to save face. But nobody is buying your conservative cred.

Mitt Romney won the New Hampshire primary with more than ten points. Congrats to you. I’ve made more than one prediction about Mitt. In one I said why Mitt will run three times. Partly because I predicted he would win the nomination at least 3 months ago. Then I didn’t want him to win.
I have endorsed Obama for a second term. Romney and his family is just too much like a dynasty in the making. And yes I do have reservations about the Mormon invasion. I really do. And not against the religion so much but what precedent this sets for our country. I think Perry and Newt are finished and so is Hunstman and Bachman badly beaten by the guy pack leaving Santorum and Paul. It will be down to these three soon enough. Perry was his own worse enemy. I think he should have never gotten into the race. He was listening to the media and he believed the hype about his chances against Mitt in the anybody but Mitt heyday. Well that day has come and gone and Mitt is gaining momentum.
Can the also-rans knock Mitt off his perch I doubt it. The rich will run this country once again.
