Romney wins Illinois, gears up for Louisiana

Schaumburg, Illinois (CNN) - With a decisive win in the Illinois presidential primary, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney now sets his sights on the bayou where Louisiana holds the next Republican primary.

"We thank the people of Illinois for this extraordinary victory," Romney told supporters in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg Tuesday night. "Elections are about choices. Today, hundreds of thousands of people in Illinois joined millions of people in this country in this cause."

    I watched Romney last night, and he is a bigger liar than little Bush. It is amazing that the Kochs, Rove and Swift Boaters, have made Mittens the chosen one, as all he brings to the table is he is rich. Money laundering, tax evasion, corporate raiding, shipping jobs overseas, getting government bailouts for the winter olympics, a lack of understanding of the free market on the price of gasoline, attacking planned parenthood, attacking the Affordable Care Act, attacking GM, attacking 160 million workers, attacking seniors, attacking women, and wanting to start a war with Iran, all make the case he is unfit for office. Mitt is unfit, two more wars may not play well outside of red states.

    Mittens has the same financial background that "W" has. So that has to appeal to the brain dead.

    It was expected – The north will NEVER elect Santorum and the south, will NEVER elect Romney and north, south, east or west will NEVER elect any of them – Santorum, Romney, ginGRINCH nor Paul to be President of the United States.

    He's not a wnner. He's one of four losers and just happens to be able to sell his snake oil a little better than the other three.

    does anyone else wonder why there are never any minorities in the background for any of the Republican candidates campaign speeches? they can't even stage minority support, never mind attract it.

    Mitt Romney is still speaking in coded language when he says that "freedom" is what made the US economy great. Every time that you hear Romney use "freedom" in this context, substitute the word "greed."
