Romney says Santorum at 'desperate end' of campaign

(CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was blunt in describing rival Rick Santorum's White House prospects Tuesday, saying Santorum's bid for the GOP nomination was coming to a "desperate end."

Speaking on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer," the former Massachusetts governor and two-time presidential candidate said Santorum was bending the truth to resuscitate a losing effort.

    The 'Three Stooges'!! ....They all need to just give up the ghosts of Americas' past, move on into the 21st century....'Change is Gonna Come', whether they are a part of it or not! We Americans of even a tiny bit of wisdom and intellect will NOT be tricked again by the 'CONS/GOP', thus relapsing back down that bumpy, spiraled road to 'business as usual' in DC! Fool us once, it's on YOU...fool us twice, it's on ME!! Maybe they ought to star in their own 'bring-back' show of the 'The Three Stooges'!! LOL!! OR maybe they could go on the The Donalds' stupid reality show so he can tell them...'YOU'RE FIRED'!! LOL!!

    HEY WOLF -- USE THIS! The Romney-Primary Ordeal -- The GEEK FACTOR: Everyone has talked of Romney not being able to seal-the-deal (it's allegedly his "lack of conservative following..."). How bout', flat out, ordinary-people in mainstream America do not connect with him as he is obviously from the affluent and Upper-Crust elements - in ways, boasts about it. Truly, people don't dislike him personally for that...they just cannot see a person such as him representing the thrust of America. It's that simple. As well, (and nobody has once mentioned it...), Mit has a bit of the Geek-Factor too attached to him; his speaking characteristics and mannerisms-"Hi guys...thank you guys..." as he waves to crowds. Mit... Geek and Presidential are not in the same bucket. Just sayen' [the geek factor is sort of like house-shopping; some houses have immediate curb-appeal and character; some need work.]

      I wonder what sacrifices these candidates have made in their personal financial decisions to improve the economy, create jobs, and instill trust in America. I personally lost half of my retirement fund in 2008. Since I am already retired, the money is being used up quickly, prices of groceries and gas continue to climb, and I won't even go to the cost of health insurance. All of these men running for the GOP nomination have had the power and the means to make a difference even BEFORE the primary rounds began. What is holding them back?

    Watching last night's primaries in Alabama and Mississippi and listening to the commentators, I couldn't agree more with their analysis. I will even go further to state that none of the Republican candidates can win the November fall elections. The problem with Mitt Romney is that he doesn't come across as genuine or down to earth and therefore ordinary folks cannot relate to him. As one of the Commentators stated, he appears to be trying too hard. One can be rich and yet still be able to connect with the masses. The Democrats must be laughing all the way!
