After Florida, most analysts were saying the GOP race was down to Newt and Mitt, but Rick Santorum pulled off a trifecta last night, a political hat trick winning the Minnesota and Colorado caucuses and a non-binding primary in Missouri. The unexpected wins casts further doubt on Mitt Romney's nomination, one that was once seen as a sure thing.

Ron Christie, Takeaway contributor and Republican political strategist, joins the program to help break down the results in this stage of the game. Also joining the show is Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich.

Republicans are not looking for a transformational messiah to fix our souls and heal the earth which are qualities that appeal to Democrats so much but competent leadership that has the political will to reduce the size of government.

Re: The halftime in America ad spot at the Superbowl:
1. It was a 2-minute spot (nobody on your show seemed to know), the last spot at the end of the halftime
2. Clint donated every penny he earned to charity
3. Clint has consistently supported helping the people who worked for the American automobile industry and who lost their livelihood (Remember Gran Torino? You guys go to the movies, right?)
Are you guys journalists? This is rudimentary background research (ten minutes, tops)
