    At the moment, Santorum has blown out Romney in the Minnesota caucuses and the nonbinding Missouri primary. Colorado seems to be at least as bad as Nevada at counting, but that looks competitive as well. Romney could well win nothing tonight, which would pretty well screw any chance he has of getting out of having to campaign in the Midwestern & Southern primaries (which he tends to lose...).

    Santorum is using his victory speech to rail frothily against the evils of contraception.

    the BBC just desribed rick santorum as a social conservative. An interesting combination of the names of both sides of the political divide. Does it means he hates everyone?

    The republican primaries are being reported here in the UK more than previously. The conclusion of the reports seems to be all the candidates are so awful no one can support any of them. Candidates seem to be taking it in turns to say something which makes them unelectable.

    It seems Romney would have lost his gag reflex by now.

    Pretty much.


    All this latest round did was show that people are going in and voting with blindfolds on.

    Well, that makes sense. . . . Oh, wait a minute: I thought that this was 1965. And that we were in Ireland or Italy.

    I usually stay out of the US political threads ... but ...

    I can't believe how bad all the Republican candidates are. It seems to me that every one of them is unelectable. This isn't a dig at Republican policies, rather at the candidates. How has the Republican party got itself in a position where their next candidate will inevitably be seriously weird? Up to any of this bunch Sarah Palin looks like a cosy comfortably lefty!

    Great visual imagery at work in the title of this thread, I am picturing Mittens drowning in a sea of frothy fecal / lubricant mix right now. Thanks! :biggrin1:

    The GOP wants to loose this election even more this time, than the last.

    They have no answers for what dubya did to US.

    well this IS LPSG. we like our politics head on.

    I dont think any party ever truly wants to lose an election. But clearly the republicans have no clear message they can agree on which the US might also agree on. I think their root message that taxing the rich less will make the poor wealthy is clearly nuts. Even Reagan believed in raising taxes and paying the bills.

    Truthfully???? When the Republican Party decided they could "pander" to the Conservative Religious Right in order to "gain" their great organizational skills AND their tenacious turnout at the polls -- it sold it's soul to the blithering idiologue idiots. The "old" Republican Party (of which even GW and his dad & Reagan were part of) has given way to a very weird conglomeration that is hardly recognizable. Conservative fiscally AND Conservative on social issues..........so out of lock step with where most of America is -- they appear as though they've just landed from another planet! Only in a Republican Debate do the moderators ask, "How many of you still do not believe in Evolution!" As a bumper sticker I saw recently proclaims: Voting is like driving. Shift to D to go forward -- R to go backward!

    ^ Conservative fiscally? Since when? The Republican support for the policy of cutting taxes and borrowing to pay the bills is not what I call "conservative". Nor is letting the banks and mortgage and insurance companies create extreme financial instruments. It's radical and irresponsible.

    Reading the thread title caused me to throw up in my mouth, just a little bit.

    The process is called vetting. Most people dislike the process because it's messy and they don't want things to be discovered. Sorta like our current president.

    Lets see what happens.
