That -- campaign their four years ago has -- ten million dollars.
Having one numbers and they might be yes -- -- Rodriguez -- commanding victory over guy who.
Until two weeks -- about it last thing that an unmanageable part of the male anatomy so way to go -- run me yes.
More want if -- gonna when a New Hampshire.
Mitt Romney Mitt is golf course and he lives there of course is gonna win -- candidate was up about 31 points in -- -- Paul just a few days ago.
He's opposed when the question is.
I can't Rick Santorum translate his for his shocking -- is going to college in Iowa.
In two a shocker in New Hampshire and the answer is no yeah absolutely cannot.
But isn't just think he's choosing campaigners is lead -- consultant.
Told national review yesterday that they are gonna go campaign in New Hampshire they're gonna -- expect I'm not.
Key noting and event Friday for accounting Republican group in New Hampshire and Rick Santorum will be at that event.
-- campaigning away.
Because their goal isn't to win New Hampshire -- goal is to show.
That they can't win.
Outside just these -- evangelical base they wanna show their competitive as elaborate what Santorum gives surprise in New Hampshire can do.
Do you do better than expected and expectations -- -- -- lower.
That could be another boost.
To the people who signed on because there is there are no -- supporters they don't exist other than maybe it Romney and that's a -- -- if you think.
People don't want -- this stock but he's the guy you got he's that.
Pair of socks as -- Christmas -- you.
He's there you know he's he's the cousin you can always take the prop -- all the hot chicks turn you down that isn't the only -- are conveyed to -- Barack Obama.
-- -- -- -- because the fact that -- hurts the Republicans because I think that's gonna happen.
The day after Mitt Romney has -- up the nomination his entire -- is gonna be you know what's the swing independents and suburban districts you know what.
I don't like Republicans in another you mentioned the Republicans do -- And that because that's a Mitt Romney -- he's never -- Republicans he certainly doesn't like Tea Party doesn't like the base.
He's gonna spend February march April may June July August September telling the base state although I don't like you I'm not on your side.
-- -- I'm just as likely to make a deal that's gonna shaft do as President Obama is that's going to be a -- tough situation particularly.
It -- Axelrod Obama's guy is right and this turns into a base vs base vote now.
Rick Santorum tons of problems no money at little organization lost by the biggest margin of any incumbent US senator ever.
But when he was winning when he was -- the 1990s early two thousands.
He was a Republican who won a long time democratic district for congress -- a long -- incumbent.
Ended one of the democratic state Pennsylvania if you could get someone -- combined the Tea Party passion.
With -- reach across the aisle to Democrats who can talk to the -- cleaners that the Obama campaign has already thrown off.
Our written off you've got a guy who was very dangerous for Barack Obama in November.
On -- don't talk remark program from Boston a -- focus in out of but you know you look great.
There's like to thank you that -- -- -- a little -- -- -- and make -- for a supplement enough.

Nobody wants an up and go vote for Omid do you do you know any you know why do they -- guy now I do not.
There are classic bandstand I think about your bandwagon got -- -- -- -- -- tumbles to raise as you'll be announcing a.
That you get you your classic just again be someone who can win and that's that's the desperate -- -- -- syndrome can convince real Republicans.
-- not only do you like mean in the like the fact I believe what you believe -- but I can win the he we will take -- I don't know that he has a resource to do that isn't.
90% probable outcome there will be stuck with Mitt Romney finally do you think they can -- this much larger volume people -- saying you gotta go that he is the winner.
It is a winner.
Why doesn't ever win anything.
I guess he won one election before like yesterday.
He won over a nobody by eight vote not 80% by eight votes -- -- -- -- one by 8% it would be crappy you don't wanna -- out of all the.
But the Republican Party knows you don't -- that liberal like you don't okay -- just you're on angry you're angry white died.
Who's don't -- some right wing whack job.
Some Tea Party and black coal and the only way you're gonna -- when you're gonna have to get on -- -- wagon and a and and -- of the sort you're under screaming about.
But -- somewhat influential certainly -- in Boston.
You know this group and about how mixed and win and they're gonna talk a bunch of people tend to believe the net dollar volume there'd be -- a disservice draw Americans -- here.
