    Your boy Ricky is off my list. Until recently, I was considering Romney and Santorum as the only possible choices I would have on election day.

    Santorum's absolutely ridiculous comment regarding the choosing of the Republican candidate assured me that Rick Santorum supporters are backing an idiot.

    I can't quote the idiot verbatim because I just heard it on the radio while driving to work.

    He said that we'd be better off sticking with Obama than electing an unknown like Romney.

    Rick Santorum is a goddamned idiot.

    I will be backing Romney.

    I hope he buried himself with that comment. This is what I love about the process; the more they talk, the more they reveal of their true natures. I have enjoyed some of Santorum's vision for America, but in the back of my mind, I have kept my distance from him, as I also saw another side, not yet revealed and it is that of a vicious nature.

    Even Newt agreed: Rival Newt Gingrich tweeted: "Rick Santorum is dead wrong. Any GOP nominee will be better than Obama."

    I vaguely heard that comment... I figured it must have been taken out of context and I haven't had a chance to research the full context of his comment. If the context stands up, and he actually said that we'd be better off sticking with Obama... then he does not deserve to be the GOP nominee.

    But... I've been backing Romney anyway.

    I am completely disgusted at his level of selfishness. Thank god my vote was a beauty contest vote. He is done. And he should stop writing Obamas campaign commercials.

    It's in context. He said "were better off with what we got than an Etch A Sketch unknown" while holding up the old toy in reference to romney.

    He's done.

    Did Santorum say anything that isn't true? What's the issue here? Oh that's right....Party first.

    I haven't checked out the Etch A Sketch comment... but my understanding of that is that it has been taken out of context too.

    Santorum just shot his own campaign dead though. Which is good news.

    It would certainly appear that Santorum has ended his own presidential aspirations. However, if he were the nominee, I would still vote for him.

    Hmmm....I don't think it was taken out of context.

    "You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who’s just going to be a little different than the person in there," said Santorum. "If you’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk with what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate of the future.”​

    regarding the "Etch a Sketch candidate" he is talking about Romney:


    For the second day in a row, the former Pennsylvania senator brought an Etch A Sketch on the trail as a prop to remind voters of Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom's response to a question about whether Santorum is pushing Romney too far right to win over moderate voters in a general election. "Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes," Fehrnstrom said Wednesday on CNN. "It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again."
