    FOX News is now carrying the banner of Santorum. They have trumpeted that he has 'surged at the right time.' Laugh if you wish, but he is the "anybody but Mitt" choice right now. If he finished in the top 3 in Iowa, he could win South Carolina.

    The far right and the Tea Party will get their candidate and the DEMS will be very happy. Extremes cannot win in the General Election. Honestly, even if he finishes 3rd in Iowa behind Ron Paul, he really will be on Romney's heals. Ron Paul is nothing more than a place holder.

    And the Obama is the darling of every other news station.

    Notice how they are the "extremes" yet the people chose to elect those "extremes" in a historic midterm election in 2010 and kick out the all those not so extremes I guess....
    how funny is that.

    After Bachmann, Perry, and Gingrich have failed the Far Right, perhaps Ricky is the man. He could be the "anyone but Mitt" answer. The GOP is desperately trying to find someone to displace Romney. Rick could be the guy. I think if he fairs well in Iowa, he could win SC. NH is a lock for Mitt.

    So....another possible replacement for Mitt. I am sure the White House is cheering for him.:eusa_clap:

    And now those "extremes" command the lowest Congressional Rating of all time. NICE!

    has it occurred to anyone that the networks are pushing romney because they're afraid of gingrich ?

    how about romney getting along so well with the government in massachusettes , maybe cause he's so liberal. i don't like romney or paul. i think santorum could be vice president for gingrich. i'm trying to think 16 years ahead

    obama simply cannot debate gingrich, that the democrats Defcon 1.... everybody on both sides knows it.

    The point I see is the "anybody but Mitt" agenda could produce the homophobe Santorum as your banner carrier. "Extremes cannot win in the General Election." So, good luck with that.

    Anyone notice that to a liberal EVERYONE is a EXTREME if they don't hold the same views that they do?

    I guess if they repeat it enough they believe it will be true.
