    Rick you are pathetic, desperate and weak. If you need to get Demos to beat Romney, how would you EVER beat Obama?

    Look, you either want our help or you don't Rick. What's it going to be? I thought we were on the same page Ricky? Who cares what Willard thinks about you destroying the primary process. If he were in your predicament, he would do the same thing.

    So let me get this straight... Yesterday I saw a story about how the Democrats are "creating mischief" by calling Democratic voters and asking them to vote for Santorum at the primary, just to upset the Romney campaign. And of course there were all sorts of comments about how the Dem's are playing dirty.
    But today I see a story about how Santorum is behind a bunch of Robocalls to Democratic voters, asking them to come out and vote for him to upset Romney, and here he's justifying it as OK. Um.... Hmmm.... what to think. I guess in this case the Democrats and Republicans are on the same side, then?

    If I were a Democrat in that region, I would definitely go vote. But I'd vote for Ron Paul or something like that. (I am a moderate-Republican though, and thus far a Romney supporter.) To be honest, a three-way split of the vote, as opposed to a two way split, would be even more devastating to the Republican nominees. You want chaos? Vote Ron Paul in Michigan.

    Mittens is using citizens united, the supreme court, and the Kochs and Rove to buy this election, but he does not think the is kidnapping the primary process.

    Rick Santorum was a lawyer for professional wrestling.Back in the late 1980s, the family-values candidate played a central role in deregulating professional wrestling in Pennsylvania as part of a team that lobbied the state government to get wrestling’s status changed from sport to entertainment. WWE's formal acknowledgement that their product is "sports entertainment" has saved the company millions of dollars in taxes and state athletic commission fees. It also deregulated the pro wrestling industry and eliminated government oversight – which many have argued led to the proliferation of drug abuse among performers and premature deaths.

    waaaa......first the false claim that Romney and Paul are ganging up on him, nowhe states Romney is a bully. No pity here. What about what a mean-spirited creep you are Santorum? You can dish it out but can't take it.

    Mittens a Bully? Say it ain't.

    The only person who has a right to call Romney a Bully is Seamus "I Ride Outside" Romney.

    I guess Santorum was jealous of the so called bromance between Romney and Paul that he went out and got his own. Problem is he had to jump sides to do it. See how Obama today just went after Romney. Makes you kind of wonder if Santorum is working on both sides. Some might say it is stupid and wrong, but he might get some kind of job from it. Santorums new moto is not, "take one for the team", but, "if you cannot beat them join them". Because the Dems are asking members of their own party to go out and support Santorum. Because the Dems know that he does not have a chance against Obama.

    Can't deny that repulsive Santorum is correct on this one; not only is Willard a bully but, even worse, he bullys from behind–letting his super pac do the dirty work. It's karma Willard, you did it to that creep Newt and now Santorum is doing it to you with the same dirty trick you pulled in Massachusetts as a liberal voter. If you can't stand the heat you can always call your wife to stand in for you in the kitchen.

    Let them destroy each other with their lies and hate talk.

    It is amazing what so-called Christians will do and say when push comes to shove!

    You wonder why most people understand that these people are frauds and hypocrites even to their own faith.

    I love that comment " that is what bullys do when you hit them back they whine" I think Rick it was more like cry Mitt's press confrence this morning I was waiting for the flood gates to open up, they didn't but it appaeared they were onthe edge of doing so. but it shows how much of a hypocrit Mitt really is. he spends millions atatcking the others with out right lies to gain in the polls but that is okay, then in NH almost 53% of his vote come from non republicans giving him a victory there yet he was not crying then. the bunch truely is the saddest we I have seen in my life time running for the highest office, makes we want to sit out of the Nov. vote .................
