Here's my take
only 3 states count
Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania
The rest are either committed already or too small to count. By Sept 15th the residents of those states will go stark raving mad from the avalanche of advertising.
“If this santorum bandwagon succeeds, it will be very bad news for the nation. What the democrat hate machine does to santorum will make their assassination of Sarah Palin look like a garden party. “
What? And they wont do that to either Newt or Mitt? That’s absurd. There’s TONS of stuff to go after Newt and Mitt on-especially Mitt on his numerous flip-flops, not to mention that with Mitt you lose both the Obamacare and Cap & Trade issue, and pretty much the abortion issue too, since Mitt’s been on both sides of that one.
Bottom line-fear of what the Dem hate machine/mainstream media will do to a candidate is no way to choose. We already know that all 3 will get beat up, so why not run with the guy who supports most of our principles?
For me, I would prefer Newt, but Rick will do. Anybody but Romney, that’s the bottom line.
