It's interesting night it was because Rick Santorum goes down there.
Does very well -- Alabama Mississippi Mitt Romney finishing third -- -- -- somehow walked away with the delegate win again because this is a very.
It's roasting process but sticking to those southern states.
How big a problem is this -- Mitt Romney moving forward.
You know I just don't see this being a huge problem for Romney if someone had told me a week ago he can get 30% and Alabama and that it happened.
That's sounds about right and I think just the expectations get out of control create -- -- polls showing him ahead -- -- would have been her.
And who was basically.
Does poll showed -- version of the race we had last night you know -- yet from the about 30% and vote and then if everything else splinters the right -- so he had enough to win it just happened last night you didn't have enough to win but it didn't splinter.
The right way I think I mean this is utterly predictable.
Heavily evangelical -- southern states.
These are places around here.
They're gonna do very well to get thirty I don't get the holes -- we have come up a panic now on the need fewer people -- sanction often shakeup and all the rest and it.
I think he can happen immediately that's political consultants who have ever existed pop on in the history of the planet.
He's not gonna do any better and that states I think this is this out of the race Romney is looking at there's a certain.
And I think that other Republican -- he just never gonna reach and it's just going to be a long hard and delegates ought to Tampa.
It's funny B I agree with exactly right on that take.
Seven days ago if you had told me Mitt Romney walks away with about a third of the delegates -- those -- states you just said.
That's a pretty good day for him but suddenly expectations shifted and about the last.
48 to 72 hours it's crazy how the narrative.
Continues to swirl.
And this thing but how about Newt Gingrich he finishes second.
But we all know he's been pitched as a regional candidate he needed -- win said his campaign and just a couple of days ago he walked that back a little bit.
Is it time for Newt Gingrich to get out.
I think they'll look at the free country can do whatever he want it.
You want you know Harold Stassen ran for president repeatedly when he had zero chance those in -- -- they had -- I hope there's some.
Miracle and camp but -- clearly that third place candidate here.
You can't even win and his regional stronghold and a lot of places these second place finishes come on top of the third place finishes and Tennessean and and Oklahoma what should have been natural.
State for him.
But he apart two days -- discussing the election night speeches are so entertaining.
Always -- new justification -- Throw like he really lie and even though he lost to anyone that you plots like nine of ten K and think produced.
And still stood up there and and George -- sounded an entire election was about the Georgia primary his home state.
That he is that you provide a very good copy but I do think at a certain level because they're going to become a little embarrassing -- it hasn't already.
An internal memo from his campaign was leaked it it read buckle up this nomination will not be decided until the fourth quarter and that -- not until June.
Do you think there's any chance he gets down if -- does where does that support go because.
Rick Santorum is suggesting that if it's a one on one shot if he gets his shot at Romney.
That -- support comes aboard his ship.
And he can take down that wrong.
Yeah he -- it's a shame because some.
Gone and visited polling and today say -- that.
You -- think Albany its support go to Santorum but that's not necessarily.
True that might divide up a little bit but certainly.
It appeared Mitt Romney you prefer that Rick Santorum not have a clean while one shot you know and Yvonne Newton hit stated then and I forget what -- -- -- Michigan.
I -- know I don't but he had he had new about 10% of voter self if most of that go to Santorum in the states.
That means Santorum window there and we'd be looking entirely different -- felt the irony here is everyone believes.
A lot of evidence based on what it said that -- is -- out for revenge against Mitt Romney credit barrage of negative ads.
And Iowa but but he's not succeeding in exacting and get -- -- -- actually serving that -- -- and so it's very bizarre.
Any of the most bizarre thing to me is just the situation that in the process.
That has played down do you like.
-- proportional process that we're seeing do you think the Republican Party will make some changes.
Or is this working in the party's favor.
I think they -- makes continued and the winner take.
-- system was fine I mean it helped that seems kind of inherently Republican you know it can often referred to get.
-- -- -- -- Winner -- And I can see the logic stretching it out because -- keep people engaged longer -- get -- turning out.
To devote the Republican ticket and hopefully that Kitna did they have -- -- fall -- down I didn't think the the prospect we have clear eyed and they'll think it's -- remote but a product that.
I'm not disastrous not down -- the content and it really that want and and Michael Steele the former RNC chairman claims that this is what he'd deliberately.
-- out to do and he did it was an extremely.
That and destructive idea.
-- it could be a bizarre convention we have a question coming in.
For you rich quote did the mainstream media set Mitt Romney have to fail.
I think that is a variance standpoint last December he was the darling of all the networks MSNBC Bloomberg CNN all their Twitter updates Mitt Romney needs to win now.
They say he can't win was set up the -- of the mainstream media interest request.
I do you know its interest thing you know -- in this study TV coverage cannot a couple of together showed that round it actually had the most negative coverage of any.
The Republican candidates which is somewhat surprising given that he had a more moderate image.
Then the rest of them and Michael Medved had a piece in the -- get it and making that -- -- -- actually the -- it's brown anymore than any precedent could actually think Romney.
Can win -- -- -- -- that theory is true I do you think he's gotten a lot of negative coverage.
And it's partly discussed.
That the media like you know frankly a lot of Republicans.
Doesn't think he's sincere and that is sort of -- on every.
-- -- -- -- -- Are rich guy I think it's a little bit of a double him because he gets it from the mainstream press but he doesn't get the same level of defensive impulse.
From the conservative press.
-- standout form could conservatives are divided perhaps.
And there is planning.
For you to write about it isn't -- there -- -- -- thanks for being with us you can follow him on Twitter -- Rich -- you can read him on the national review also will be on.
