Santorum brings in $1 million this week

(CNN) – Rick Santorum's primary victories earlier this week appear to be paying off.

The former senator from Pennsylvania's presidential campaign says they've brought in $1 million in fundraising since Santorum won Tuesday's Republican presidential primaries in Alabama and Mississippi.

    At this point Santorum is the only serious challenger to Romney. The others should drop out. Problem is Santorum has run out of southern states to win in. He has given it a good run though. I doubt he can pull it off though.

  6. Get real

    GOOD! If he had half as much as Romney and Obama he could win the election. Maybe, then, he could cut through the lies and smear campaign and get the truth out. Truth? Oh right...the truth has been turned upside down; I mean why would someone homeschool when they can send their kids to the failing, local government school and come out prepared to join the ranks of OWS?

    Rick, I'll say it again – I admire your principles. I really do. But what are you going after?

    VP? No... that's going to Rubio.
    Attorney General? No... that's going to Christie.
    Secretary of State? Not a good fit.

    Maybe Chief of Staff?

    The one thing I truley believe about Ricki Sanitarium is that he is withouta doubt a walking TALKING argument against evolution.

    The republican candidates are fighting it out in the primarys to see who gets the honor of losing to President Obama in the Nov 2012 general election.

    The fact that someone like Santorum is this close to winning a major party nomination is a sad state of affairs

    Few people ever heard of Rick Santorum – until he stood in the 'well of the US Senate' and demanded that the federal government intervene in the most private and personal decisions of the family of TERRI SCHIAVO.

    This "hands-off, personal-freedom, small-government conservative"...Rick Santorum...........

    Romney only has 2 problems that will keep him out of the white house.....he is a FAKE....and a PHONY. The Cayman Island and Swiss Bank accounts are real cute too.....

    That is great news. Now maybe Sanitarium will put the million in his mouth and keep it shut.

    Ain't that the truth. What's even more disturbing is the menagerie of personalities who had risen and fallen before Santorum took their place as the Not-Romney candidate. We are witnessing a major political party going through a process of evolution, revolution, or devolution. Take your pick. I vote for all of the above.

    Santorum standing up for Terri Schiavo is one more reason I like him.

    The fact that the USA has a divisive socialist in the Whitehouse is FAR scarier.

    What position would fit you, Ricky?

    How about Defender of the Faith? Nope, overqualified.
    Grand Inquisitor? Possibly. Scott Walker may need it, though.
    Head of the Secret Police? Keep him the short list.
    Hog-reeve? maybe
    Dog catcher? Nope Ron Paul has that one.
    Secretary of Education? Nope, overqualified. He has 3(gasp) degrees!
    Gauleiter of Puerto Rico:Perfect! Keep those nasty Hispanics poor and on their own island!

  22. The Elephant In The Room

    As a highly qualified and sterlingly credentialed minority that had always been head and shoulders above my competition, I am cheered by the bias/ prejudice that Romney is facing. Perhaps it will illustrate to others what so many women / brown / black people have faced when going for leadership / executive positions.

    Listen to what Gingrich & Santorum are saying to Mitt. "Even if you get the bulk of the delegates via the primaries, we`re going to do every underhanded & back-room-dealing thing we can to hold you back".

    I`ll bet this is a new & frustrating experience for Willard. This prince of privaledge hasn`t had to face this type of hurdle before. Welcome to our world, Mitt.

    And, liberals and Independents do not want someone who will finish "the job" of destroying the manufacturing sector and the middle class. Mitt Romney is a salesman who knows how to sell only one product, capital.

    The only one with experience being president is the man who currently has the job. A one-term governor who had over 200 vetos overridden, who left his state with higher unemployment and a job approval rating of under 40%, and who has shamelessly turned his back on the few accomplishments he had in office is clearly NOT capable of doing the job. He asked for and received a huge amount of money to help pay for the Olympics, and his job creation record in the public and private sectors is mediocre on a good day. Its amusing to hear the righties rave about how competant he is: if I were them, I would not be looking for competance, I would want excellence. No one on the GOP side checks that box. They have all lied about how they achieved balanced budgets and the rest of their records. They are a sorry field of uninspiring, second and third-rate technocrats who take their orders from plutocrats and radio talk show hosts. None of them can do the job, LEAST of all the Mormon aristocrat.
