Santorum wins Alabama, Mississippi, CNN projects

(CNN) - Rick Santorum will win Tuesday's Republican primaries in Alabama and Mississippi, CNN projects, giving a boost to his claim that he is the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney.

The projected wins were somewhat of a surprise. Polls released Monday showed Santorum running 8 to 10 points behind Romney and Newt Gingrich in Alabama and Mississippi.

    Whenever Mitt wants to talk like certain folks, it comes off like an already bad movie script meeting a terrible actor. Santorum is not honest, he is just a first class doofus. Honest people don't deny what they say when they find out its unpopular.

    OMG!!! Too good to be true. I can just see Ricky now trying to debate the POTUS. He better hope Jebus comes down to defend him. Somehow though I kinda think Jebus would find the beer swilling college boy kind of an embarrasment. OH WELL, let the games begin!

Wonder why so many of his policy brokers were goldman sachs execs. ENOUGH! Goodbye satanic muslim and your new world disorder, please let the door hit you on the way out

    "Well worth it my friend! In 3 decades when the next generation is busting their butts to keep up with Obama's debt, maybe they too will appreciate that terrible depression we narrowly avoided. I think not."

    That last sentence is quite telling. Be that as it may, President Obama and Ron Paul are the only two candidates with budget plans that reduce the deficit, so if you really believe are genuinely concerned about the deficit you have to vote for one of them, and not one of the Three Stooges with their massive debt increases and more unpaid tax cuts for the filthy rich.
