    Willard outspent Poep Santorum 4-1 in Ohio. Same as he did to Newt in Florida. If he thinks that strategy is going to work against the President, he is sadly mistaken. Say it with me now....ONE BILLION DOLLARS!!!!

    Since Rmoney is struggling when nobody is talking about his HIDDEN tax records, what will happen when Dems start exposing him in the general election?

    No matter which side trying to buy their path to Washington-insider positions....on one hand candidates say; "its not about me" and on the the other hand its exactly what they say....!

    That Romneylan Death Star is pretty powerful stuff. My only advice Newt and Rick is, "Shields up, men."

    Romney is only spending $1.5 million in Alabama. He spent $15 million in Florida on negative ads. Mittens could have saved $10 million if he declared, "I like gator nuggets." What a lousy businessman the gaffer is.

    In Florida, Mittens could have also sampled python chowder, or attended a manatee roast.
