Rick Santorum speaks off the cuff, which is why his sweaters don't have sleeves. (3:42)

PLAYERS CONTROL THE BANKING

INDUSTRY.

I'VE HAD IT.

SORRY, I'VE HAD IT.

THE ALABAMA AND MISSISSIPPI

PRIMARIES WERE LAST NIGHT AND

THE STAKES FOR ROMNEY WERE HIGH

OR AS MITT WOULD SAY JUST THE

RIGHT HEIGHT.

BECAUSE IF HE WON EITHER STATE

HE COULD DISPEL DOUBT ABOUT HIS

APPEAL TO CONSERVATIVES AND I

WOULD HAVE TO START LOVING HIM

WHICH, OF COURSE, I HAVE DO AS

LONG AS I HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE

BUT I DO BECAUSE AFTER A WEEK OF

CANDIDATES FORCING CHEESY GRITS

DOWN THEIR THROATS AND Y'ALLS

OUT OF THEIR THROATS THE DEEP

SOUTH HAS SPOKEN AND FOR ONCE

THE NATION COULD UNDERSTAND WHAT

THEY WERE SAYING.

>> RICK SANTORUM'S SURPRISE IN

THE SOUTH.

HE WINS THE ALABAMA AND

MISSISSIPPI PRIMARIES.

>> MITT ROMNEY WALKS OUT IN

THIRD PLACE IN ALABAMA AND

MISSISSIPPI.

>> IT'S VERY CLEAR THAT NONE OF

THE CANDIDATES CAN SEW UP IN

THIS NOMINATION BEFORE TAMPA.

>> IT MEANS A LONG, SLOW PAINFUL

SLOG TO THIS NOMINATION.

>> STEPHEN: LONG, SLOW AND

PAINFUL.

THAIRCHL YOU JESUS.

THIS IS GREAT.

THE DEMOCRATS HAD THE SAME

SITUATION WHEN THEY WON LAST

TIME IN 2008.

NOW REPUBLICANS GET THAT HILLARY

VERSUS OBAMA MAGIC MINUS ANY

WOMEN OR BLACK PEOPLE OR MAGIC.

[ LAUGHTER ]

FOLKS, I'LL TELL YOU, WHY ROMNEY

IS HAVING TROUBLE CLOSING THIS

DEAL.

WE CONSERVATIVES DON'T TRUST

HIM.

RICK SANTORUM IS RESONATING WITH

VOTER BECAUSE OF HIS

AUTHENTICITY.

HE ALWAYS SPEAKS OFF THE CUFF

WHICH IS WHY HIS SWEETERS DON'T

HAVE -- SWEATERS DON'T HAVE

SLEEVES.

HE BELIEVES AUTHENTICITY SHOULD

BE LEGALLY MANDATED.

>> I BELIEVE WHEN YOU RUN FOR

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES,

YOU SHOULD BE ILLEGAL TO READ

OFF A TELEPROMPTER BECAUSE ALL

YOU ARE DOING IS READING

SOMEBODY ELSE'S WORDS.

>> STEPHEN: YES, IT SHOULD BE

ILLEGAL.

VOTERS CANNOT TRUST CANDIDATES

WHO HAVE SOMEBODY ELSE'S WORDS

IN THEIR MOUTHS.

THAT'S WHY NO VENTRILOQUIST

DUMMY HAS BEEN NOMINATED SINCE

THE DARK DAYS OF CHARLIE

McCARTHYISM.

WE CANNOT STOP AT TELEPROMPTERS.

I REJECT ALL PREWRITTEN WORDS.

THAT'S WHY I'M AGAINST READING

BOOKS.

BOOKSBOOKS ARE A LIE.

WHEN IT READ THEM IT MAKES

THOUGHT SOUNDS IN MY HEAD LIKE

I'M THINKING THEM.

SANTORUM DOES NOT USE A

TELEPROMPTER GIVEN HOW RND

CONCERNED HE IS ABOUT

REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS I'M PRETTY

SURE HE USED CUE CARDS.

WHO, JIMMY.

IT'S A FAMILY SHOW.

BLUR THE DIRTY PARTS.

NO, JIMMY THE DIRTY PARTS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THAT'S PART.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW UNLIKE SOME PEOPLE IN THE

NEWS BUSINESS, I NEVER USE A

TELEPROMPTER.

[ LAUGHTER ]

I TRY TO SAY THE SAME THING AS

THIS GUY RIGHT HERE IN THE

MONITOR.

I JUST FOLLOW HIS LIPS.

OKAY?

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WHILE HE TALKS I TRY TO SAY WHAT

HE IS TALKING.

HE GOES PRETTY FAST BUT I CAN

USUALLY KEEP UP WITH HIM.

HE SEEMS ANGRY RIGHT NOW AND I'M

ANGRY TOO.

WE HAVE FUN TOGETHER.

'S I GOOD GUY.

SEE YOU, BUDDY.

WHOO.

[ LAUGHTER ]

BY THE WAY, I KNOW THAT HE IS A

LOT OLDER THAN I AM BUT HE'S A

GOOD GUY.

WITH SANTORUM'S WINS IN THE

SOUTH, WHICH IS GINGRICH'S HOME

TURF BY THE WAY SOME SAY IT'S

OVER FOR NEWT.

I THINK THE FORMER SPEAKER COULD

WIN OVER LOUISIANA V
