santorum is on the rise. gingrich dropping. >> let's drop a little bit about romney for example cpac he gave this speech, i call it the i'm a real conservative speech, he won the straw poll so was that speech effective? was he convincing? some people we saw over the weekened she is not convinced. >> he doesn't have a lot of fervour it was a big win that he won this cpac contest but santorum got much more of a rousing applause and response, so the question still remains, is he a conservative and sarah palin is taking a shot at him certainly didn't help. >> let's shift gears new budget talks beginning this week the president is proposing a new budget, $1.5 trillion on new taxes and corporations and rich money for a new education program, will this budget fly. >> it is not going to be passing any time soon democrats in the senate will not pass a
