Santorum Continues Improbable Run

You know what?  I'm done trying to figure out Republicans.
The Comeback Kid
Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum's good Tuesday momentarily tripped up Mitt Romney's momentum once again in the race for the Republican nomination, but Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich failed to break on through to get a victory.

I don't know how he did it, but Rick Santorum somehow has people on the Republican side that think he will make a good President.  I don't understand how anyone, let alone someone with a brain, can objectively look at the candidates and decide that Rick Santorum is the one that best represents their views.

I guess it says something about Republicans in Minnesota, Missouri, and Nevada.

It's gut check time for Newt Gingrich.  He has to make a comeback soon or he will be relegated to the back rung of candidates again.

Romney needs to turn up the pressure cooker and start a whisper campaign targeting Santorum, Paul, and Gingrich saying that their continued participation in the process makes it less likely that he will beat Barack Obama in November.  It's already very unlikely, but every time another Republican attacks Romney, it should only give Obama ideas for the General Election.

Ah...the advantages of incumbency.
