You mean like the real unemployment rate of 14% and gas prices over $4Oh, c'mon now.... you know there is NO WAY the mainstream GOP Establishment will allow Santorum the nomination.
No way, no how.... the GOP knows Santorum will be an easy crush by the Libtards. He is too extreme in his social views (dumb as it is to focus on such fluffy, superfluous issues like gay marriage and contraceptives, when there are so many real, *actual* problems the country faces) and the libtards will roast Santorum over a slow-turning spit if he got the nomination.
The Republixtian nation must coalesce around Mittens, and do it soon, if they are even to have a prayer for a GOP win in November. Santorum only guarantees four more Obummer years, just as Gingrich guarantees four more Obummer years. Only Mittens will not guarantee an automatic Obama win, but the other two candidates would surely result in four more Obummer years.
And even if Mittens gets the nod.... the fact of the matter is, he is just not all that well liked among republicans in general (and the extremest Christaliban in particular), so those who watch this process closely can pretty much see the handwriting on the wall... the popular vote might be somewhat close, but the electoral vote is the only one that matters. Barring any serious hiccup over the next 8 months, Obama is likely to take it.
You listen to too much NBC and Maddow
