    As we know Rick Santorum won 3 states--one of them a surprise in Colorado this last Tuesday in caucas.

    But--we conservative Coloradoans learned a very hard lesson in the mid term election of 2010. Our republican candidate, Ken Buck, was ahead in all polling data across the state, running against Senator Michael Bennett. This race was literally Buck's race to lose--and he managed to do it in the last 2 weeks prior to the election--by making a statement that he was against abortions--even for rape and incest victims. He also went out on attack of Gays on Face the Nation by stating that homosexuality was a "disease" much like alcoholism. After all the votes were studied we learned something the HARD way.

    Republican Ken Buck lost the FEMALE vote in this state--including the conservative--pro-life Female vote in El Paso county-which is-home to FOCUS ON THE FAMILY.

    You see, even conservative pro-life females understand that it is wrong to prohibit abortions to victims of rape or incest. Sarah Palin said it best: "I hope that they would choose life, but I do understand as to why they would want an abortion in these instances."

    Apparently Rick Santorum--needs a little history lesson here--because he certainly didn't realize what happened in Colorado.

    Here is Santorum on video--stating the exact same thing that cost the state of Colorado a republican senate seat in 2010. If Rick Santorum wins this nomination he will most certainly lose to Barack Obama.

    Yeah--he continually offends gays--obviously not realizing that there are gay people who are actually fiscally conservative. There are republicans that have gay children and friends--but that doesn't stop him.

    But--I'll never forget the Buck/Bennett race and who conservative pro-life females voted for. They voted for the democrat--Michael Bennett--because Buck was too far right on abortion and wanted to prohibit abortions to victims of rape and incest.

    my gawd, he offends homosexuals, are you people so damn shallow you can't take another persons opinions that don't jive with your own.

    And he has a different opinion on abortions (millions of Americans do). why does that SCARE you people so much. your precious abortions are still legal and will most likely stay that way.

    What Santorum is stating amounts to being merely his opinion.

    To vote against him on this issue when he wont be able to change anything without a Constitutinal amendment that has the backing of 36 states and a majority in both chambers of Congress is comparable to voting against him because he wants to end the direct election of senators.

    When we have so many desperate issues that DO need the leadership of a solid conservative like Santorum what someone would or would not do on abortion is almost trivial when he cant change one damn thing.

    Wow, that was a really silly comment.

    'Oh Noooeeeessss!!!!! a liberal called me a loser!!!! Ohhhh NNNOOOOEEEEEESSSSS!!!!'

    lol

    The historical FACTS demonstrate otherwise. Nixon 72, Reagan, Bush 1 88 and Bush 2 in 2000 and 2004 ran as solid pro-life candidates with a similar GOP platform and ALL WON. The first three won by LANDSLIDES.

    So please trot your 'conservatives are losers' BULLSHIT somewhere else.

    So what?

    He sacrifices that one third of 2% gay in the middle and easily picks up another 6% on the right end of the spectrum.

    An economic 'conservative' who is not also a national security conservative and a social conservative is NO DAMNED CONSERVATIVE.

    Yeah well, they said the same thing about Reagan and his conservatism after the inept Carter administration. And let me tell you this administration is 100 times worse.
    so I wouldn't be dreaming of another four years of the Obama just yet.
