Will a Santorum win in Louisiana change GOP race?

(CNN) - Registered Republicans voted Saturday in Louisiana's primary while Rick Santorum, heavily favored to win there, and Newt Gingrich assailed President Barack Obama's energy policies and Mitt Romney's hefty campaign war chest.

The visual of the week, the venerable Etch a Sketch, made an appearance as a prop during a Santorum stop in Wisconsin.

    I am someone who thinks that the word racism is way overused and the race card is way overplayed. Yet from everything I've seen to-date, I believe this young man is dead because he was Black. If he were white, I doubt he'd ever been followed.

    Let the Justice Department take over now, and please would the usual players quit (Jessie, Al, and Louis) making a circus out of this tradegy and using this young man's death as way to promote themselves.

    He will win in "crazy territory" but can't win the Republican fat-cats who want a pliable sleeze-dog they can manipulate to gain more dollars – their only real ideology. Romney will get the nomination because the Koch brothers and pals will spend enough on dishonest, dirty, and negative ads to win.

    CNN, stop trying to make it like the race is still in play. Romney is at half what it takes to win the nomination and Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich will have to literally win all of the remaining states to take the nomination. The contest in LA tomorrow is a lost cause. Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich will take their share of the delegates. If Santorum win, he'll take away a few more delegates than Romney and Gingrich. That will hardly make a dent in Romney's 300+ delegate lead. How funny that when Romney is leading by that much and CNN keeps saying that certain state is a "must win" for Romney and yet for Santorum or Gingrich, you mention of no such thing. The fact is, every state now is a must win for Santorum and Gingrich, but you lefties don't want to be to headline now do you? THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY IS OVER. Move on...Newt and Rick doesn't want to believe that, but you CNN, should know better.

    What's disgraceful is Gingrich's twisting of President Obama's comments. He really wants to claim that race ddn't figure into this young man's death? To try to take race out of the discussion serves nothing except racism.

    What the President said is true, sincere and promotes healing: he said, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.". What Gingrinch said is a pathetically sad attempt to cleverly use race to score political points and promote his candidacy by pandering to the worst in our culture. Obama spoke as a parent and as President of us all. Gingrinch spoke as a pandering politician and showed once again why he does not deserve or command serious consideration for President.

    The sooner Newt Gingrich recuses himself from the pubic eye, the better off we will all be.

    Gov. David A. Paterson commuted the prison sentence of a black man who fatally shot an unarmed white teenager outside the black man’s house in August 2006. The black man's name was John H. White(age 57). The white teen's name was Daniel Cicciaro(age 17). Mr. White shot the unarmed teen at point blank range. Gov. David A. Paterson (who is black) overturned Mr. White's conviction of manslaughter two days before Christmas break(2010)right as both houses left for the holiday. He did this so no one could challenge his unjust move. Why wasn't this investigated as a hate crime? Also please look up story from Cleveland, Tx. About 11 year old Latino girl raped by 17 black men. The black men where called the victims by Black Panther leader Quanell X. Just read the results of the case.

    Travor Martin's murder is very disturbing to our national conscience! May God bless and comfort his family.

    However, where was Al Sharpton when the black teenagers attacked white people at the Wisconsin State Fair in August of 2011? Did he go to Wisconsin to condemn the attacks? Did he say anything at all condeming the black kids behavior? Al Sharpton is a racist and a pathetic sub-human being!!

    I keep trying to figure out just what kind of person would vote for any of the GOP candidates. Certainly no one I'd want for a neighbor.
