Rick Santorum:

Please notice that you have virtually no chance of WINNING the winner-take-ALL delegates next Tuesday in Florida, but you VERY likely will be the spoiler that throws ALL delegates to the liberal ROMNEY.

So therefore, as soon as this debate is over...
...PLEASE announce that you are MOVING your campaign immediately, to get a HEAD START in the NEXT TWO states (Nevada and Maine), which are having their CLOSED CAUCUSES just FOUR days later! ...next SATURDAY (9 days from now).

By doing that, you will assist with Romney losing Florida and then MOST LIKELY dropping out before you have to.

Then, with (You, Newt, and Ron Paul) competing, you will have a better chance of outlining why you would be the better conservative than Newt in representing the GOP.

Mitt Romney has launched the biggest smear campaign I’ve ever seen by one Republican to another, against Newt. I can’t believe what I’m seeing!

Operation “Wetback”

Didn't Romney just state that his father is a Mexican immigrant?

So, when was he naturalized?

Barf! Romney is accusing Newt of using smears, but he is the one who is running the biggest smear campaign I’ve ever seen by a Republican in a primary!

“Why does Mittens sound like a 12 year old stomping his feet?”

Because he feels that because he was a Governor for 4 years and has a mountain of money that he should be given the Presidency as well.

Romney has a stacked audience. He successfully dropped Rubio’s name.

Rubio really helped Romney. Dammit it all.

Funny how they try to tell all immigration isn’t an issue, yet the debate has been nothing but immigration....

Open borders and endless immigration free for all, will eventually kill America.

Here is the white leadership conference questions...I mean Hispanic.

Mitt has good comeback. Newt is losing this one, unfortunately.

Unfortunately, this is a weak area for Newt. On immigration and, more particularly, this strange concern about the deportation of old Hispanic grandmothers, Gingrich sounds too much like Perry - which is exactly the issue that helped kill his campaign. Hate to say it, but the chameleon is winning the debate on this particular subject.

The MSM wants Romney because they have the anti-Mormon rhetoric at the ready and they know true Conservatives will stay home or only vote the bottom of the ticket.

I think Obama was mentioned about three times in the last debate. If the candidates don’t bring him up (like Santorum just did), they’ll not mention him.

Ye gods. First thing out of Newts mouth is a lie. He’s not from Georgia and hasn’t lived there in years and years. He was a congress critter from Ga. But he lives in Va. Was born in Pa.

Mitt has sound bites and I can’t wait until he gives out the wrong on...with his synthetic indignation.

Actually he’s worse then Obama..at least Obama, as much as I hate his guts, he admitted from the start what he is, with Romney, he pretends to be a Conservative, when in the past he has proclaimed himself to be a progressive, and has NO plans ever to repeal Obamacare..so Romney is a two-face phony
