Santorum: Louisiana vote shows the race goes on

Washington (CNN) - Fresh off a big win in Louisiana, Rick Santorum insisted Sunday that Republicans are rejecting the premise that rival Mitt Romney has virtually locked up the GOP presidential nomination.

"Even though a lot of folks are saying this race is over, people in Louisiana said, 'No, it's not,' " Santorum said on the CBS program "Face the Nation" about victory in Saturday's Bayou State primary.

    The LA vote shows that right wingnuts do not want Mittens. I am not sure they want any of the current clown show.

    160,000 republican votes cast in LA, shows that the republicans are fired up . . . maybe not.

    Santorum doesn't know how to count from 1 to 50 so he can't be expected to count to 1144 nor can he subtract his numbers.

    GOP has been damaged goods since W Bush years, so it does not matter who crawls faster to or finally limps over the nomination line.

    The repubs need to be concerned. Romney has all of the advantages, money, endorsements & 6 years of running for POTUS, but can't seal the deal. He can't run on the economy after he and the RNC chair stated it's improving. Sen Graham today stated the role of gov't would be the central issue of the general election. That is his weakness. Flip flops on abortion, Romneycare & mandates as well as 33 percent want ACA expanded & 20 percent say leave it as it is. So 53 percent approve while 38 percent dissapprove.

    it will not affect the outcome. Mittens will get the nomination but the fact that he cannot win a deep south state has to be disturbing to him

    Actually, the Louisiana vote shows that the Opus Dei Catholic racist goes on. Ricky is an embarrassment to all Judeo-Christian believers. And we already know what he feels about non Judeo-Christians. Wake up, voters. This is a dangerous, angry, conflicted, divisive, self righteous child.
