    Who cares, anyone of these Gop clowns is going to lose in a Dem landslide in Nov. A vote for any republican moron is a wasted vote . Move forward with DEMS, backwards to the horse and buggy days with republican clowns!!!!

    – Paul: No public events scheduled
    That's for the Ron Paul supporters who like to whine about their champion not getting media coverage. He was also invisible on both Monday and Tuesday. Have a nice day.

    Alright mitt the Democrats are waiting for you! You say you have private experience and you know how to make the economy work. I agree that you have private experience, but the only thing you know how to make work, is getting money for yourself and a few others at the cost of the majority. You've exported factory work and claimed you have created service jobs. Now how the hell can you compare manufacturing jobs which are the root of an economy to the last stop on the job string, which is selling what manufacturing create to the people. This president have strengthen people who create demands, which is bringing back factories back to this country. You want to strenghthen corporations at the cost of people, to give corporations no choice but to skip to China after they realized that the repubs have strip their customers of their spending money.

    Those are some upscale suburbs, with exclusive gated neighborhoods, that both Romney and Santorum are visiting in Illinois.

    Keep the battle royal going all the way to the convention! No time to be nice and the mud with gusto and glee. Drag each other down into the gutter. Let the public know what skeletons are hiding in the closets. Increase negative PAC attacks.

    Ron Paul and Newt need to drop out at this point. They will NOT be the nominee given their past performance. Newt appears to be engaged in a personal jihad and Paul is just using the primary process at this point to spread his libertarian message.
