GOP candidates focus on Louisiana

(CNN) - A poll released Friday shows Rick Santorum with a comfortable lead over front-runner Mitt Romney in Saturday's Louisiana Republican primary, but he was in a mess over remarks he made over President Obama, which his rivals seized on.

Santorum said Thursday, "we might as well stay with what we have" in the White House when comparing Romney to President Barack Obama.

    Will LA be yet another state with voter count and delegate allocation issues? The delegates should be awarded proportionately in every primary/caucus scheduled prior to April 1. The state Republican parties in AZ and FL assigned their delegates on a winner-takes-all basis to Mitt Romney. Those delegates will be disputed at the convention. If Mitt Romney's opponents drop out prior to the convention, then they would be conceding those disputed delegates.

    I wonder how fast Mitt will adopt a fake Cajun accent and claim he likes crawfish?

    Hopefully Santorum won't seek out unions to get them to vote against Romney. It backfired in OH and MI!

    Please change the rules so that all the primaries are held on the same day, so that we never have to again watch this endless parade of shrill nonsense and stupidity.

    You've got that right Mr. Paine. I nearly chocked on my morning coffee when Mitt came out with that 'yall. He sounded like a yankee trying to be a southerner. Actually, he was a yankee trying to pretend to be a southerner. Mr. Etch-A-Sketch, gotta love him.

    You mean just like Obama does when he goes down south? He trys to be a southern black instead of a Harvard graduate black. No difference.

    It's a cinch for Santorum. The plastic wall-street $$ man doesn't preach enough to suit the fake christians in the south.

    If voting laws can be gotten around, look to the red states to do it.
