    You can't get a more resonant rejection of libtardation than this.
    Santorum starts the night with a win in Missouri, moves on to a win in Minnesotta, and then follows it up with a win in Colorado where he wasn't even running hard.


    This video is before the Colorado result was known.

    If I was a modern day liberal, I would be cheering. Rick is not a threat, he is an asset.

    Nonetheless, I am surprised, but not really. Republicans have a long history of supporting big government social conservative RINOs.

    You forgot about the other big winner in all of this.



    President Obama

    Amazing race the GOP is having this election cycle.

    I think it speaks to the wide range of GOP MASTERS fighting for control of today's Republican Party.

    I doubt Ricky will win the nod from the GOP, but then too, when it comes to political prognostication, I am seldom right.

    You touched on the key point.

    The GOP establishment, the Obama campaign, and the left wing media, all want Mitt Romney. Conservatives and much of the rank and file GOP want anyone but Mitt Romney. It's telling that only now, Rick Santorum has taken the momentum. We really wanted Herman Cain, then we settled for Newt Gingrich, now in desperation, we try Rick Santorum.

    As usual, when the lefties are correct, they are for the wrong reasons. This will help Obama, but not because the voters chose Rick Santorum, or because Obama is a good or competent POTUS, but because having Romney forced on us is going to dampen much of the enthusiasm on the right. Many of us will see this as a repeat of the John McCain nomination from 4 years ago.

    While I'm always happy to see Romney have a little misfortune, I'm not sure if this really means anything.

    There were no delegates at stake in Missouri and Gingrich wasn't on the ballot. So what you had was a win where Romney was only facing a single conservative in a state where they truly hate Mormons. (Seriously, Missouri didn't repeal Governor Bogs 1839 Extermination order until recently.) So that doesn't impress me that much.

    Minnesota kind of surprises me, because Romney won that won in 2008 and he had Pawlenty out shilling for him. Then again, I may have just answered my own question. BUt he came in THIRD place behind Ron Paul.

    Colorado was the one that shocks me, because Romney had a lot of organization there, a sizeable lead.

    Long term, I don't think it matters. I think we are now going to see the Mainstream Media launch into a bunch of attacks on Santorum, and Romney still has the money and organization to go the distance.
