    I wonder if Santorum will backtrack his last few weeks comments or continue to defend how extreme he is? Or is there any press there to question him? Can't wait to hear what spews oout of his mouth this week. Couldn't stay above the fray as he wanted from Florida, is "not a visionary" to lead America, against pushing kids to higher education, thinks church above country, what am I missing? Oh yes, women 's rights.

    I am sorry to hear he raised so much money. You think Rick is sorry he didn't get on the Virginia ballot.

    What a waste. Santorum draws from the radical, Teavangelical right-wing and that population is too small to elect a President of the United States. The American Taliban is vocal and they vote, but fortunately, not many people are that crazy and that hateful.

    The Democrats probably donated mostly to Santorum. He is part of the Team Obama.
