Governor Romney says all my opponent is very different.
-- increased Medicare taxes.
Friday cut Medicare.
Since -- -- Medicare is.
And -- I guess why didn't cut Medicare.
Thank your governor of Massachusetts.
Medicare the federal program not a saint -- I mean.
It's almost incredible that even -- Something like that.
That was an incredulous Rick Santorum former Pennsylvania senator campaigning in Rochester Minnesota started to take some more.
-- -- jabs at Mitt Romney and his record as governor of Massachusetts.
Also included -- that was as you rather just comforted -- perhaps that baby was a Mitt Romney supporter this is power -- welcome back Internet we are here still with Susan appreciate chief congressional correspondent for the Washington examiner.
But now let's take a whirlwind trip out to Denver Colorado where -- Fox News -- -- -- -- good yes -- is tracking what's going on out in -- early show how you doing -- -- there are.
They said they would be back -- next on your program.
Well she can't hear us but she would tell us Internet if she could have heard us what she would have told us this.
That they are having a caucus event in Colorado today they're having a caucus in Minnesota and they're having a fake primary in Missouri so they have three contests today Susan ratio.
And in those -- Rick Santorum.
Looks like he will be viable.
In the state primary in Missouri.
And the real caucus in Minnesota and looks good for Mitt Romney out west in Colorado.
No delegates will be awarded to get today this is not -- anyway -- well in Colorado and -- it starts a process that ends up with people who -- delegates to a state convention who will eventually choose delegates but -- delegates are being awarded today.
Does today matter in someone.
I think it doesn't I think it's exciting today because now.
You're bigger political there.
Why it's exciting this is a chance for Rick Santorum and Ron Paul.
Two breakaway and and do something has -- yeah hi Ron Paul's not won a contest yet it is still sucking up 20% of the vote.
He could win in Minnesota she's -- very well organized there now Ani and every had a convention there on your eyes and you and I around Saint Paul for years if you having his own convention about.
We tried all eyes he was having sound and here is having his own convention exciting and Rick Santorum could win in Minnesota he's doing very well there he is gonna win that he could win this sort of beauty contest in Missouri which of course -- doesn't count but let's face it.
If Rick Santorum -- -- today saying he won Missouri and he won Minnesota how.
It will run you look that's -- he's taking these jabs Mitt Romney in that not -- scared he's got his bowling Alley since he's been there are enough to have Tim Pawlenty go out.
And call reporters and tell everybody how Rick Santorum loves earmarks fit is going yeah each other they're going to do that.
Or tell -- they're going after each other but and I wanna just say a word about the Missouri primary.
It is a shocking failure of the political system in Missouri that the taxpayers have Missouri this is my my two cents the taxpayers of Missouri we're gonna get -- six million American dollars right why don't hold a primary that.
Will award no delegates that does not include everybody on the ballot that doesn't do -- thing.
They're gonna have this.
Simply because democratic governor Jay Nixon and Republican legislature couldn't agree on -- means by which to cancel it so it's just going to occur and it's not going to do a Dag gone thing.
But it could Internet is gonna get -- -- good yeah we hear that she is available is that truly show.
Curtis both are about that I -- you know the Internet just wants to see whenever you're ready for the -- that's what that's how the Internet I imagine you are well.
Still trying to figure this out yet now they just want you that's all they really want OK tell us quickly about what's going on in Colorado today how's it shaping up.
-- well we have the Colorado Republican caucuses tonight they don't Begin until 7 o'clock local time 9 PM Easter.
And right now this might give you an indication of where things stand Mitt Romney is decided to hold his caucus watching party.
Here in Denver he's leading in the polls right now however Rick Santorum.
Could show us a little bit of a surprise tonight because we have these pockets.
Here in Colorado with the Republican voters that are more the evangelical.
Right leaning Christian right in -- There's an air raids on places like that.
It doesn't Colorado swings quite a bit we are swing -- here it's also considered a good test for a general election because it is a swing state.
Our electorate here electorate here is divided into thirds -- -- Republican at their democratic third.
Undecided or independent rather.
So it could really go either way but a lot of people say that there are a lot of bragging rights that come with winning Colorado because it could look to the broader landscape the rest of the country.
I really -- and it can brag that it heard from you today and we are thankful to you enjoy -- -- fun caucus day we'll talk decent thing yeah.
Yeah OK Susan I want to finish -- him.
I got so excited denouncing the political the political function -- I want to finish but you and that is this fifth Romney is very wise to fight with Rick Santorum because the more -- he can elevate Rick Santorum.
The more he can continue to keep the not Romney vote divided that he didn't cut into Gingrich's numbers if I am Mitt Romney I want Rick Santorum in the discussion every single day as much as humanly possible to make sure that Newt Gingrich gets fewer delegates and becomes less of a factor the longer the primary was in a primary goes on inside the Republican Party the better it is for Mitt Romney that's what I think.
I feel like Mitt Romney's voters here are a little less sophisticated.
I feel like.
The -- that the Romney camp is operated so far and I think this is the case this week to is that they see Rick Santorum as a real threat that -- could walk away tonight when he Colorado but.
But Santorum in a strong second place finish in Colorado -- -- -- was just saying because there's an evangelical.
-- voting -- there that could elevate him say he finishes strong inside and Colorado he wins Minnesota he wins Missouri this is not something that -- we like.
Finally got to go -- we will remain friends and colleagues what we will agree to disagree on this subject Internet we.
