Santorum sweeps Tuesday's three GOP contests

Rick Santorum swept the three Republican presidential contests Tuesday in Missouri, Minnesota and Colorado, reshaping the race and raising questions about frontrunner Mitt Romney's ability to attract broad conservative support.

Santorum's trifecta halts front-runner Mitt Romney's momentum after the former Massachusetts governor had won the previous two contests and three of the first five prior to Tuesday.

      Did you actually expect Obama to clean up George Bush's mess in this short time. We were under the Bushes for
      8 L O N G years. I should take longer than that to clean up this nation. No one is willing to give Obama a break. I did not vote for him before but now he looks lots better than the excuses they are offering us. They never tell us what they will do for the USA only how bad Obama is. But will you be any better? I doubt it.

    Our president has done more to get the country back on track than all of the republicans in congress. If they had been working with him instead of worrying about making him a one term president, we would be alot farther along in our recovery.
    Now look at the field of clowns you have to choose from.

      Boy do I ever agree with you. Of course he is not perfect but in comparison to the former – he is absolutely a president that we can be proud of. The fact that the Republicans worked so hard to make him look bad is just not working.
