    I hate agreeing with right wing loonies, but the GOP should have listened to what Ann Coulter said at CPAC.

    That's right. And Newt is going to surge with the wackos in the South and the Establishment is going to be back to biting its nails down to the quick wondering how in the hale this mess happened.

    Can't the reublicans come up with any better candidates than the ones that are running? Santorum is a religious fanatic who thinks all women should be barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen, threatening Iran with war and thinks that the President is a snob because he thinks everyone should have the right to go to college if they want. Hey Rick, the US has fallen dramatically in the education field compared to other countries. Romney is nothing but a rich guy that does not care about the working class. What a shame he can only afford to drive 2 Cadillacs, a truck and a Mustang. Also threatening war with Iran. I don't see any of his 5 sons signing up for the military. God help the US if any of these candidates become President.

    The question as always, "Do Americans really think that elected republicans in DC are going to suddenly start working for our country if a republican is elected President?" You know they won't.

    How can 31% of any group support this GOP clown show? This election is about our future, and we will only survive if we say, "No!" to the republican platform of fear, hatred and divisiveness.

    Since Republicans are only able to appeal to their far right-wing I recommend a single political slogan... "Just pick one – they're all white guys!". If Jesus Christ returned to Earth and ran for President most Republicans would vote against him because he wasn't white enough and was always trying to help the poor.

    Evangelicals think that both Catholics and Mormons are not Christians, so they're in a tough spot.

    Grover Norquist to the rescue! At CPAC, he told the "faithful" to just hold their noses and vote for Mittens – he would take care of things by having a Repub Congress write up all the nutjob legislation and all we needed in a president was someone with "ten working digits" who could "hold a pen" and sign everything.

    It's ashame people can't read Santorum.....If he gets the vote, I will no doubt vote Democratic. He is not a leader and he is arrogant. I would rather put up with Obamacare. We better start worrying about Women's rights too. He dislikes women, it seems.
