 David Shuster of Current TV and We Act Radio AM 1480 in D.C. calls in at 8am to talk about the shenanigans in the GOP race

 Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich ratcheted up their attacks against President Barack Obama on Monday as they competed for conservative votes ahead of primaries and caucuses in the Republican presidential race.

 Gallup’s daily tracking poll Monday showed Santorum leading Romney 36% to 26% among Republicans nationwide. The new numbers represented a six-point drop for Romney since last week, when the formerMassachusetts governor was statistically tied with Santorum, who rose by five points in the same period.

 While discussing the threat of Iran today to a crowd of about 4,000 people at Oral Roberts University, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said that defeating Barack Obama was “in fact, a duty of national security.”

 Rising gasoline prices are causing concern among advisers to President Obama that a budding sense of economic optimism could be undermined just as he heads into the general election.
