Does this cat have a shot?  Is he letting the other two beat themselves up and keeping close enough to steal this election on Super Tuesday? Maybe? Or will he fade off into the sunset like Huntsman and Perry?

Unfortunately not. I really like the guy but he's not dramatic enough for the friggin bullshit media to grasp on to.

 

I would vote for the garbage my dog just took in the backyard before I'd vote for that cumguzzler in office right now.

Santorum has as much of a chance to be the Republican candidate as Saddam has to be Iraq's next dictator or Osama Bin Laden to become an American.  Zero.

The press owns these debates, they don't let Santorum or Paul get very much airtime.

It not about winning or losing for Santorum.  He wants to accumulate delegates for horse trading at the convention.  Delegates are bargaining chips for shaping the Republican platform and can even help Santorum secure a cabinet appointment.

Google "Rick Santorum". That will tell you his chances.

Goose has it right.  Santorum and Paul are both trying to get enough delegates to use to their advantage at the Republican National Convention.  Paul's camp even recently came out and said as much.

Presidential aspirations ended right here:

NPR quoted Santorum, talking about government aid such as food stamps and welfare at the rally at a diner: "I don't want to make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money."

He told CNN's John King he was pretty confident he said 'blah' people's not 'black' people's.

See ya Rick! Don't let the door hit ya in the behind...

I like his no nonsense ways but that's too scary

but he did point out that black people had a more stable family environment during slavery, so that should help with the religious right.

isn't that just a Judeo-Christian version of "Sharia Law"?

The courts are currently deciding this.  They  just voted that Lutheran law supersedes US Law 9-0 vote, kinda shocking.

If they allow this, how can they not allow it to go other religions? Sharia Law?

you can't be serious. he would turn the United States into a Christian versious of Iran. he and Rick Perry are religious fanatics every bit as dangerous as any Taliban.

I haven't been around these boards for too long, but why are you trying to race bait in every single post?  Were you posting snide comments like this when Obama was going to a racist church for 10 (maybe 20?) years? If you are fair, that is one thing, but my guess is you are an all out partisan.

He has some appeal now because he's a bit different.  But when it comes right down to it, the US will never elect someone with as much "zeal" for religion as he has.  They just won't.

It's Romney v. Obama.  Let's just get on with it already.  9 more months of this B.S.

don't worry, santorum is going away. the guy is an absolute freakshow.  the best thing he could do would be to come out of the closet. 

“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country…. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”
