Santorum hits rockier road in New Hampshire

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) – After falling eight votes shy of a major upset of Mitt Romney in the Iowa caucuses, Rick Santorum tried to take that momentum into New Hampshire but hit a bumpy road in the Granite State.

Despite his disappointing finish in Tuesday's primary he vowed to fight on.

    Santorum is DONE as well as Perry and Huntsman!!!! The RIGHT is so caught up into Romney's "JOB CREATION" lying message that they don't even realize that it is HUNTSMAN that the LEFT fears the most and is much more "conservative" than Romney!!!

    NO candidate on the RIGHT will do any BETTER than what President Obama is doing now in regard to jobs. The Republicans argues that if the "TAX BREAKS" stayed in place, JOBS will increase beginning over a year ago – WHERE ARE THE JOBS in the way they PREACHED!!!

    AMERICA WAKE UP – take two pain pills and get over that "Short Memory Syndrome!!!!!!!!!!"

    Obama 2012!!!

    "We have a campaign that has a message and a messenger that can deliver what we need, which is first and foremost to defeat (President Barack) Obama," Santorum said.

    That is the biggest problem right there. Santorum and the rest of the looney, knuckle-dragging right wingers out there couldn't care less about this country. It's all about beating Obama and having power. Luckily, most of the country doesn't want a President who's dumber than a post and wants to dictate how people live their private lives.

    Give it up, Santorum. You lost your last election by 17 points and you the closest you will get to the Oval Office is scraping gum off the sidewalk on Pennsylvania Avenue.

    of course he hit a rockier road. Only a tiny percentage of NH residents are religious zealots that think a clump of cells is more important than the economy, health care, etc. He'll do better in SC where they are closed minded, like him
