    Santorum never had a chance. I'm always amused at social conservatives who want the government telling people what to do in their bedrooms. The vast majority of women taking birth control pills are MARRIED. Santorum said that birth control eliminates the purpose of sex and people do it only for pleasure. This is old-time Catholicism. The celibate Pope and priests preach this, but few American Catholics listen.

    Of course Santorum also wants to overturn Row vs Wade, which will never happen. And of course, phony scientific religions like Evolution and Climate Change needs to be outlawed, too.

    Next to Santorum, Romney looks like an intelligent and capable guy. Until he opens his mouth. Sigh. Voting for Obama this year, guys. The GOP is off the rails.

    Boy, the Chicago Tribune sure isn't taking sides in this race, is it? As far as they are concerned, President Obama stamped his ticket for a second term already and is just waiting for the coronation ceremony... er, swearing in.

    Former Senator Santorum may take a few more days to come around to endorsing Governor Romney. But he will come around. He loves America too much to be a thorn in anyone's side in the Republican effort to steer the country in a direction different from its path of the last three and one-half years. To make up for the slack during the next-ensuing two weeks (before the Pennsylvania primary), Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, who is not a former, lost-by-18-points senator, but one of two presently-sitting senators from the Commonwealth, has endorsed Mr. Romney. Once Pennsylvania speaks its voice (in favor of Mr. Romney), then Mr. Santorum, healed by time and circumstance, will step forward and urge Republicans to support Mr. Romney as the "anyone-but-Obama" candidate of "choice" (pun intended, I suppose, though inapplicable, really).

    As long as he doesn't endorse Romney, he should expect no, and get no support to pay off his campaign debts, either from Romney's campaign, or the superpacs and others who support Romney for President. In this case, there SHOULD be a quid pro quo. I wouldn't give Sanctimonious Santorum a cent without something of value in return. He dissed Romney. He may miss Romney, his money, and the money of Romney's supports, IMO.
