Rick Santorum Wins 3 Contests So Far On Super Tuesday

Rick Santorum has won the Super Tuesday primary in Tennessee and Oklahoma, and the North Dakota caucuses.

Eleven states were playing host to nominating contests on Tuesday, which were poised to put the battle for the Republican presidential nomination on a path toward conclusion — or, alternatively, on a route that threatens a more prolonged, bitter fight.

    How far will the GOP go against women? In Kansas, removing the remains of a miscarriage is defined as an abortion! Now, they are trying to tax those women who see procedures to do this. They do no exempt rape victims, ectopic pregnancies (which are deadly) or remains of a miscarrige! This is how far the GOP will go to attack women! Communism? Death camps? This sounds like some ghoulish medical experimentation!

    Romney will be the nominee. Santorum is an angry little man, stuck in the 1500's and intolerant of anyone not like himself. And, he's an immature, unethical weasel. Nuff said.

    The DNC Pledge; ■Jan. 7, 2010 – The Obama administration announces new bureaucratic hurdles to American energy production that Secretary Salazar admitted “could add delays to the leasing and drilling process.” Gas is $2.67 a gallon. ■March 31, 2010 – Instead of opening new areas to energy exploration and development, President Obama blocks deep-ocean energy production on 60 percent of America’s Outer Continental Shelf. Gas is $2.80 a gallon. ■Dec. 1, 2010 – The president re-imposes and expands the moratorium on offshore energy production. Gas is $2.86 a gallon. ■Jan. 2, 2011 – TIME reported that the Obama administration issued the first in a series of regulations on January 2 designed to unilaterally impose a national energy tax. Gas is $3.05 a gallon. ■May 5, 2011 – The White House issues a formal statement opposing House-passed Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act and Putting the Gulf of Mexico Back to Work Act, legislation designed to jumpstart [sic] American energy production, address rising gas prices, and help create new jobs. Gas is $3.96 a gallon. ■June 21, 2011 – The White House opposes the House-passed Jobs & Energy Permitting Act that would unlock an estimated 27 billion barrels of oil and 132 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Gas is $3.65 a gallon. ■Nov. 8, 2011 – The Obama Administration releases a plan for a five-year moratorium on offshore energy production, placing “some of the most promising energy resources in the world off-limits,” according to the House Natural Resources Committee. Gas is $3.42 a gallon. ■Jan. 18, 2012 – President Obama rejects the bipartisan Keystone XL pipeline and the more than 20,000 jobs that would come with it. Gas is $3.39 a gallon, and rising faster and earlier than ever before.

      The republican plan for America... Give tax cuts to rich people. Give taxpayer subsidies to large corporations. Deregulate all that hinders their greed. Give more tax breaks to the rich. Eliminate all govt social programs. Destroy unions. Ship all middle class jobs overseas. Bring back child labor. Make women go back to being barefoot and in the kitchen. Put gays back in the closet. And give even more tax breaks to the rich. republicans - all of them - are bad for America.

        Diversion tactics are for communists, facts and truths are for Americans; President Barack Obama's Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu uttered the kind of Washington gaffe that consists of telling the truth when inconvenient. According to Politico, Chu admitted to a House committee that the administration is not interested in lowering gas prices. Chu, along with the Obama administration, regards the spike in gas prices as a feature rather than a bug. High gas prices provide an incentive for alternate energy technology, a priority for the White House, and a decrease in reliance on oil for energy. The Heritage Foundation points out that hammering the American consumer with high gas prices to make electric and hybrid cars more appealing is consistent with Obama administration policy and Chu's philosophy. That explains the refusal to allow the building of the Keystone XL pipeline and to allow drilling in wide areas of the U.S. and offshore areas. The consequences of the policy are not likely to be of benefit to the Obama administration. The Republican National Committee has already issued a video highlighting the spike in gas prices and the failure of the administration to address the issue.

          Communists...they sound like a broken record when all they have to do is move to China, Russia or Cuba to feel right at home. But they cannot, they are too stupid to realize the freedom of speech they use to post is denied in those countries....

    Even the former first lady Barbara Bush thinks this is the worst republican primary in the history of the United States. Instead of telling the nation what they can do to improve the economy and higher unemployment, they are bickering on religion and contraception, a biggie for Santorum, Romney and Newt even though Newt is fading away from the scene fast. How dumb they think they can get into the White House by preaching these insignificant topics like Pat Robertson does.

      Yeah, because those topics are so pointless..... LOL. Had it been a liberal arguing those points, you would be all over it! I think the "entitlement" mentality is by far the SINGLE LARGEST issue that needs to be addressed. Government should NOT provide services or anything else to the people of the US; they should only do their job as outlined in the US Constitution. Too much gov. nanny state to tell you how to cloth yourself in the morning.

      "The republican plan for America... Give tax cuts to rich people" -- I don't think that's the plan. Most conservative people want to see "fair tax" or flat taxes. Anything to spin the truth though right? By the way, if anyone is to hinder greed, then Obama, Peolosi, Reed, and all the rest of the high class 1 percent need to give all of their money away! Unlikely that they would vote themselves out of money; but they wouldn't skip a beat to do it to someone else!
