    Rick Santorum Can't Win

    This article doesn't mention the delegates that Santorum is ineligible for because of improper filing in many state congressional districts. Illinois--coming up--for example.

    He wants the second spot.

    It's all he ever wanted. A nice cushy goobermint job with a nice lifelong pension.

    Every republican candidate besides Ron Paul is no different than any progressive - they just have a different perspective on how the government should rule our lives...

    Yep, where he can push his radical, anti-woman agenda and get a nice lifelong pension to supplement his speaking fees and book selling.

    Typical of the R's.

    No work but lots of pay.

    I don't think winning is his goal.

    He wants the vp slot and will be trying to use his power to get it. He will fail.

    Rubio needs to be the pic.

    WHAT is wrong with the rw's that they would want a little kid who knows nothing, has experienced nothing and has already started with the Repub lies about who and what he is.

    Oh wait - remembering Norquist's words, that all they want is a yes man. So, yeah, Rubio would make a good veep yes man.

    I don't think Romney can win on the first ballot. Once that fails, none of the delegates have to vote the same way on the second ballot.

    We don't have to tolerate this shit. But as long as they have us divided we're screwed.
    I don't think we'll be unscrewed very soon. The liberals will never trust in there fellow citizen.
    They are joined at the hip with the creeps in DC and downward.

    It's all shit.. and shit runs down hill.

    Never say never. The count of delegates is strictly academic right now. All the caucus states that the media have assigned the delegates are still in the process of selecting delegates. Not only that but delegates can change their mind and vote for whoever they wish.

    Second spot?

    Have you been listening to how he talks about Romney?

    He is NOT angling for the second spot.
