    Just finished watching it. Oh gosh..I hope this guy gets a new speechwriter. He's probably just blown any momentum he's had.

    To be sure it was a rambling diatribe bereft of vision or cause. He sounds like any conservative poster here..hateful of Obama and dismissive of anything that doesn't fit into his agenda..which seems to be low regulations and low taxes.

    It was incredibly negative and sure to scare away people that aren't into theocracy.

    This is the Newt/Willard alternative?

    :lol:

    Just because he couldn't rally (or should I say "organize"?) thousands of Europeans in a world tour doesn't mean he was "rambling".

    I only got to hear a bit of it. His girls looked very proud of their father. The boys, well they were boys.

    I think he is a good man but admittedly I don't know everything about his past or what his specific proposals are.

    He's got a beautiful family..no doubt.

    That's not what I was referring too. Do yourself a favor (Well if you can sit through it) and really listen.

    I was no fan of Reagan..but the guy was absolutely spot on when he gave speeches.

    Well of course you're keeping in mind he was speaking to the deeply conservative so naturally it will disturb you as a democrat. Personally I'm less interested in whats said in a pandering speech, which they all do, and more interested in his actual proposals. Which I will now be looking into before our caucus.

    Sallow...

    Please...and with all due respect...

    You did not watch Santorum speak so you can see the value in him as a candidate. You watched him speak so you can find reasons to criticize him.

    That being said, it is quite simple for anyone to find anything that anyone says as troublesome, boring, long winded or hypocritical.

    I wish partisans from both sides spent as much time vetting their own as they do vetting the opposite side. We actually may end up with good people in elected positions.
