The big state of Florida now in the rearview mirror for the Republican candidates Mitt Romney the big winner he walks away with all fifty delegates from Florida.
So now the candidates move on to the west getting ready for a flurry of primaries and caucuses.
Mitt Romney heads to Eagan Minnesota and then Las Vegas Newt Gingrich holding a rally in Reno.
Rick Santorum is making stops throughout Colorado starting in Denver then on through Lakewood woodland park and Colorado Springs.
Ron Paul is also going to Vegas to be meeting with voters there.
Let's talk about all of this with Karl Rove the former senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to George W.
Bush also a Fox News contributor.
Carl before we talk about these Republican candidates let's talk about the man whose job they are trying to win President Obama.
He just had that speech about trying to make mortgages more affordable even for people who are under water on there is.
There's a fourth or fifth such proposal we've had from the administration was grandiose promises of what would do and none of the previous ones work and this one doesn't -- we'll wait and see but it doesn't look like that's gonna work as well.
And incidentally -- remember how he's gonna pay for this he's gonna pay for this.
By -- a fee on banks now who pays -- -- not a bank it's paid for by the customers in the bank.
So some customers in the bank we'll get a benefit paid for by a larger number of customers.
Who will either pay higher fees but a more difficult to get credit front more difficult to get alone.
There was also a line in there about you know congress has act congress has to go along with this it seems that the president has once again setting up congress -- the impediment to his program.
Now let's see and get it through the democratic senate autism they call up Harry Reid say -- I was just out and Northern Virginia demanding that congress do once you set an example move my major soon as possible mean once again I'm not even -- the president sent up legislation on this.
-- he talked about it last week but as we know from previous state of the union addresses he demands immediate action and takes his.
McDonald's why he takes his time to pull together the piece of legislation sent -- four bit.
Haven't sent -- Ford -- and see if he can move through the senate the house -- past thirty some odd bills and have to do with economic.
Growth and prosperity.
All but three of them are sitting over there in the senate waiting to be passed -- three of them have been approved by the senate sent to the president for signature so.
The problem seems to be in the senate maybe the president ought to pay attention that for well.
All right so let's talk about the Republican candidates Mitt Romney very convincing victory in Florida nude Gingrich comes in number two.
Says he will fight on it will go all the way to the convention as far as mr.
Gingrich is concerned.
Good idea I mean what do you think about -- process.
Four and let's step back for just a minute that the march is an -- where it's going to be a month of -- advantage for Romney and challenge for Romney therefore caucuses Nevada Colorado Minnesota and Maine he won all four of them in 2008 because.
He was well organized in the front runner John McCain was not and the expectation is is that he's gonna win all four -- this time around but.
But this low turnout caucuses are volatile.
And there could be some surprises here you saw last night.
Ron Paul's speaking before a Turbo charged crowd and Henderson of that he didn't look like he just got 7% of the vote in Florida was getting ready and it does strike instead he was revved up and ready to go and we're likely to see some surprises in these caucuses.
At the end of the month or two primaries Michigan and Arizona those are likely to be pretty good for Romney particularly since he's got nearly twenty million dollars in the bank.
And it's principal opponent Newt Gingrich has a couple of million but a pile of bills which means he's got less than a million dollars -- expendable cash.
And from Romney showed that he can turn if he turns it into a resource war is he did in.
In Florida he can he can prevail on those then we go to march and Super Tuesday and that's where we're likely to see the campaign either Begin to detect and if Romney wins most of the contests and most of the delegates or evidence and it's gonna take is going to be a long tough slog through the spring.
If if if Santorum and Gingrich combined to.
2 give -- some trouble that day and in between we've got Robbie Robbie fighting off Gingrich but in Missouri with a beauty pageant on the seventh of of February.
No delegates at stake Newt Gingrich didn't even file Rick santorum's gonna be auditioning for the role of principal opponent to Romney.
And that's gonna complicate -- for both Romney and Obama so the excitement has just begun lots of twists and turns well we're glad you're gonna be here with us still watch all of those twists and turns Karl Rove Fox News contributor Carl thank you.
