    As I was telling my girlfriend on election night, calling the finish anything other than a tie is sorta bogus. I'm sure this happened in other caucus sites as well.

    Thats interesting...either way Santorum "won" in iowa.....i notice some of the more left-leaning members of this forum are having kiniption fits over the guy which is pretty entertaining for a few reasons

    1) Well he is a hardcore social conservative, unlike myself who is libertarian on social issues, but a lot of the "socially liberal social" people on the forum are completely intolerant of his views......kinda ironic if you ask me :)

    2) The guy doesn't really stand a chance against obama, those who want obama re-elected should be celebrating this as santorum will ding up romney hardcore with the base.

    It's not really ironic. Saying the views of others should be respected and given fair consideration isn't the same as saying they are correct.

    As long as the Republicans are taking cues from the left about who their candidate should be, I don't see how they really have a chance in November. "It's all Obama's fault" may work for some, but you have to present a coherent vision to win over a majority. I don't see that coming from the Republicans. They aren't on board with fairness with regard to taxes and they are tone-deaf on social issues.

    Doesn't matter now. The news media has moved on and all the publicity was Romney won so no matter what happens now the public will always think Romney won. In reality the election is still in progress and won't be decided for awhile because the delegates are not selected yet and anything can happen.

    To me it is only media driven event used to eliminate and apportion money. Crazy way to select a candidate to run the country and part of the reason why we cannot get quality people to run for the office.
