This Santorum surge and if he wins Michigan, will only usher in Jeb Bush.  The nonsense of social issues at a time when jobs are needed will not  have any meaning nationwide.

Small wonder the US has a full employment problem.

"Foxconn Technology—responsible for assembling iPhones, Xbox 360s, and Dell computers— a 25 percent pay raise for its employees at Chinese factories on Saturday. News of the raise comes after weeks of increased scrutiny of the working conditions at the plants, which together employ 1.2 million workers who work as much as 14 hours a day. The pay raise comes with a limit on overtime hours. "This is the way capitalism is supposed to ...

Quotes many Joe users wished they had said:

Congressman Allen West: "The public good is a misnomer, created by our liberal friends. It is not the public good that matters, it is the personal good."

Cal Thomas: "Well I’m really glad, Genevieve, that you played the Rachel Maddow clip, because I think that she is the best argument in favor of her parents using contraception."

Ann Coulter: "Democrats are like your degenerate brother-in-law who borrows money for rent, spends it on crac...

A Romney win in SC, HA!

No way! An ex-governor of Massachusetts, and to boot initiating statewide universal healthcare, you can count on SC running him out of town.

"A three-member panel of the  Denver-based U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously that the rights of plaintiff Muneer Awad, a Muslim man living in Oklahoma City, likely would be violated if the ban on Sharia law takes effect."

Regardless of the ruling, Sharia law would still be practiced, but the courts should definitetly prosecute violations of human rights, particularly women's and children's.

Some candidates just don't get it. Paul should just declare himself a Tea Partier and run on it. Santorum should startup a Vatican Party. Perry should indeed secede. The professor should returtn to his ultraconservative district in GA in order to rejuvenate ccarnival barking. Huntsman is in the same leaking boat as Giuliani and Romney last time--they're in the wrong party. To get anywhere in the GOP he has to abandon his principles as Mitt has done.

Remember when Reaganomics turned the New Deal uoside down? Let's take on the poor economy by returning to respectable labor laws and restructuring a vibrant middle class.

It's not rocket science. The need for Public Works[hiring PRIVATE contracturs] is a foregone conclusion. Furthermore, we have to put an end to lionizing millions who work more than 40 hours a week in order that others can be hired. The Labor Department should enforce the law. There should also be a surtax on ev...

"I want individuals to have their own insurance," Romney said yesterday in a speech at the Nashua, N.H. Chamber of Commerce.  "That means the insurance company will have an incentive to keep you healthy. It also means if you don't like what they do, you can fire them. I like being able to fire people who provide services to me."

When you campaign for seven years, you’re bound to lose sight of purpose. Now he wants to be The Donald!

Apple is at it again: thinks its the only show in town.

Thirty years of fraudulent proprietary technology while the rest of the universe clones, Apple should grow up and accept reality—IBM was sportsmanlike—so lighten up, Apple.

Not so Opposites clash. Talk about contrasts even though neither could be more conservative. Santorum is war mongering over Iran, and Paul wants all stateside! Santorum has the war industry euphoric and Paul the peaceniks or pacifists dancing. Perry, of course tops them both with sending troops back to Iraq.
