    Hopefully after Super Tuesday one of the lesser candidates will drop out. I'm not sure why Ron Paul continues his Don Quiote type quest. Poll results don't show he's going anywhere fast.

    I like the word “survives” , always media will project the winner fast in home states but this time it didn’t happen

    The smart money is probably still on Thurston Romney III as GOP nominee. Mitt, what is your position on the Iran situation? What position will get me the most votes today? Don't you have an core values? Core what??????

    This guy may be front-runner, but that's it. End of his political career with November Election. No one in the right mind will ever vote for this Rich Job shipping guy to China. Watch on Youtube, when mitt romney came to town. Bain-Capital, practically, Santorum has 39%, this dude has 40%. You think they vote for him. I don't think. It is Obama to beat this Rich idiot. People know it is Rich v/s Middle Class America Election. true.

    Says who? I have yet to see his long form birth certificate, marriage license or prior tax returns and I'm sure I won't – but of course – the double standard will be applied to this non American.

    Romney didn't win Michigan as much as Santorum just simply handed it back to him. Santorum had it locked, that is until he actually believed that he had it locked.

    Let's compare how Santorum does in Pennsylvania to how Willard did in Michigan. As far as Super Tuesday goes, Newt is going to win the southern states. If Willard ends up with the nomination, I predict low voter turnout in November.

    After Obama, all these requirement were dropped. Anybody that staggers over our borders can run for President or vote. It's the Democrat way.

    "I have yet to see his long form birth certificate, marriage license or prior tax returns and I'm sure I won't..."

    Producing prior tax returns is not a requirement to run for President of the United States. I for one could care less about Romney, but I really wish people would give up on asking for anyone's prior tax returns.

    Who knew "survival" is the new "winning"? BTW Willard's speech couldn't go beyond bashing the President. Where and when are you going to show us your vision Willard? You get a pass on passion; that is just not in your DNA.
