    Although he has a slim chance of winning I just can't bring myself to vote for Romney or Newt. Their tactics disgust me and that's that.

    Also I really don't care about the social issues so rant all you want about santorums position on gays or dead babies.

    I wanted to vote for Paul but I couldn't because of his positions on foreign policy. In the end it really didn't matter because delegates are not being awarded in the Missouri primary.

    I'm sick of the fighting in our party and that's largely what drove my vote.

    The Santorum Connection. Tom Delay and Jack Abramoff went to prison for the illegal pay to play lobbyist scandal, but the liaison, Rick Santorum, went unscathed. Santorum was an integral part of the influence-peddling scandal where the more a lobbyist paid the more access they had to influence political leaders. This was known as the K Street Project. As part of this Santorum had weekly meetings with lobbyist. When the scandal broker Santorum lied by stating that he stopped having his meetings with lobbyist but his Washington staffers confirm that he continued these secret meetings.

    What part of the vote was both meaningless and a protest vote did you not understand?

    Santorum's chances aren't as bad as all that. Intrade currently has him at about a 7.5% chance of nomination, ahead of all the other non-Romney candidates put together. He also seems to be all but assured of winning today's Minnesota caucus, which will cement him as the midwest/rust belt candidate.

    Romney has pulled ahead by double digits in Missouri. Course only 1% reporting.

    I could never vote for Santorum.
    The man is a hypocrite. He blasts gays as immoral and unfit all the while his last chief of staff for over a decade was openly gay with a live in partner.
    He doesn't believe what he spouts and only wears the Christian suit to pander for votes.
    I could also care less about a lot of the social issues as I want someone, anyone to beat Obama but Ricky Santorum is unworthy as President.
    Fraud.
