Newt Gingrich urges rivals to drop out
http://harndenblog.dailymail.co.uk ^ | January 18, 2012 | rocky88

Posted on 01/18/2012 6:21:59 AM PST by rocky88

Buoyed by his strong debate performance in Myrtle Beach, Newt Gingrich has called his rivals to drop out of the race because "consolidating into a Gingrich candidacy" would "virtually guarantee victory" in the South Carolina primary and stop Mitt Romney becoming the Republican nominee.

Making the case to a crowd of almost 200 in an art gallery in the old railroad junction town of Florence, South Carolina he said: "If you look at the polling, I’m the only conservative who realistically has a chance to be the nominee.

I have supported Rick Perry and also liked Rick Santorum, but I do agree with Newt here. It's time for them to go quietly and unite behind Newt who each day seems to be the only one who can stop Romney, IMO.

In a nut shell, Newt is right about that. But the type of people that go this far in a presidential election campaign (Newt included) are not “quitters”. They are the type that go into the fourth quarter, behind by three touchdowns, believing they can still pull off a win.

And sometimes they do, which just encourages them.

I think it’s grossly stupid for Paul to be in this race. I have to believe followers are all really Dems....doing a job....and I’m almost betting that they’re getting paid one way or another.

They won’t drop out in SC but they will be dropped out for lack of funds and votes after SC.

Yur right, Newt.

For the sake of the country, Santorum and Perry should drop out. Otherwise, Romney may still win.

Rather arrogant of him. If he were truly serious, he shouldn’t be saying this publicly, but meeting with Perry and Santorum to discuss it. He is putting public pressure on the others to drop out so he can advance. We can all agree that we should unite behind a Conservative, but Santorum is the most conservative left in the race. Who appointed pro-amnesty Gingrich as the lead conservative?

And then what? Newt was willing to drop after SC if he didn’t win as recently as Sunday. So we’ll have one candidate and he might bail if the going gets rough, giving it to Romney by default?

Levin said last night to take “a first look” at the other candidates. Said it’s early, that FLA lost half its delegates and past patterns mean “butkus”. I’m with him, get over this pressure for our guys to drop out and take care of your own campaign.

Newt is correct. Consolidating support would push him over the top. I trust he is negotiating privately with the other candidates — not just making boastful noises in public.

I agree. I think part of the problem is that some of them still in the race may prefer Romney to Newt.

They're libertarians who have not shown any propensity to support the republican party after Paul is out. Sara Palin was wrong about these people we get very little support from them, they are just a pain in the ass. Ron Paul is a fraud who is the biggest Rhino there is...he only becomes a republican to run for president and his Kooky followers only vote republican when this old fool is running. Let them go they won't be missed.

While I agree with Newt. I think it is better left unsaid from the candidate himself. I think the voters are smart enough to understand the dynamics.

It just comes off as arrogant. And could backfire with soft Santorum backers.

Santorum voted against right to work in Pennsylvania and stupidly wasted time in the debate argueing with Romney over felon voting rights...a big time loser as far as conservatives are concerned...how conservative is that? Rick Santorum is not ready for the Presidency.

The only possible path to victory is with Newt, warts and all.

If Newt is not the nominee then someday soon all of us will be watching the first presidential debate and saying to ourselves “If only Newt was up there instead of this turkey”

This is the time to push forward a man who can fight and win.... it simply does not matter that he is flawed. At this critical moment it only matters that he can defeat the enemy.

Make no mistake, Newt is the one they live in fear of. He cannot be controlled, he cannot be restrained, he will say the things they dread to hear and at the worst possible moments.

When Newt exercised power what did he do? what were the results of what he did? Were you pleased? These are the true measure of the man.

“Who appointed pro-amnesty Gingrich as the lead conservative?”

Every poll in recent days did. Newt did not say that he is the “most conservative” but that he is the conservative with a chance to beat Romney and he bases that opinion on his poll standings.

But then, you probably knew that.

* Before Monday's debate, Mitt was losing ground, and his debate performance was weak / below average
* Before Monday's debate, Newt was GAINING ground, and his debate performance was fantastic
* Rick Perry gained into upper single-digits but his debate performance was mediocre
* Rick Santorum was losing ground rapidly, AND his debate performance was mediocre
* Jon Huntsman's support was ONLY 1% in the latest poll, and that support won't ALL go to Romney so don't sweat him

SC voters: If you liked Rick or Rick, THINK ABOUT THIS before voting....

Each congressional district will have 2 delegates given to the winner-take-all within the district (that's 14 delegates total)

And Statewide, there will be 11 delegates given to the winner-take-all at the state level

So let's assume Romney is still barely in 1st place in the polls just before the vote.
Let's assume there is only ONE close NON-Romney in 2nd place (Newt).

Maybe YOU would prefer Rick or Rick....

But, IF YOU Vote for Rick or Rick, you have most likely helped award ALL delegates TO ROMNEY because it is WINNER TAKE ALL!!!!

The ONLY way to NOT hand your delegates to ROMNEY is to consolidate all conservative votes behind the LEADING NON-ROMNEY

” But the type of people that go this far in a presidential election campaign (Newt included) are not “quitters”. “ <<<

I’m afraid you’re right about that. It is up to the supporters to back off sharply, but since conservatives can’t do math and odds, Romney may pull it off South in Carolina. However, it was time for the master to speak on the subject and I am glad he did. He was talking, IMHO, to the bundlers and financeirs as much as the supporters, to ALL wake up and do the math and the odds in South Carolina, or else, while at the same time to hold the margin of a Romney victory down to a manageable one, for even going on to Florida.

Hell to pay for Santorum/Perry supporters if they should cost Newt South Carolina as the polls will catch up to his break out from the debate “get” Monday night. Thursday’s CNN debate seals it, IF, the moderators even bother to include Newt in the debate. They will be promoting disunity, Santorum, and Romney of course.

Well, perhaps Newt saying this publicly will allow him to go back and say “I told you so,” when the SC voters drive us all over the cliff and vote in Romney.

Really, can you just imagine Romney on the stage against Obama. He will be nervous, dithering, stiff, awkward looking ...they’ll toss him zinger after zinger prepared by a sympathetic lib media ...it will be HIDEOUS and embarrassing to watch.

Really — is THIS what we have to look forward to, S. Carolina???

Like it or not Newt has displayed an unbelievable ability after all the negative ads in Iowa to take a punch and come back swinging. He has the best chance(probably the only chance) to beat Romney in SC. After his spectacular debate he is almost certain to come up in the polls!

Newt supports or has supported amnesty, the proposition that there is manmade global warming and that the government should address it urgently, the individual mandate for health care, the prescription drug program, and a host of other big government programs.

He is the only sitting Speaker ever to be given a reprimand and a financial penalty. This was in a Re--controlled House where 85% of the Reps voted for the reprimand and a $300,000 penalty.

Gingrich is thrice married with two messy divorces where he admitted to adultry. He has changed religions three times.

How conservative is Gingrich and can he win with so much baggage, professional and personal?

Rick Santorum rightly asked Hannity yesterday, why should Newt ask him (Rick) to drop out when he had beaten Newt in both Iowa and New Hampshire.

While I definitely think it's past time for Paul and Perry to drop out (Paul because he's a joke, and Perry because he hasn't done well), I think it is completely wrong for Newt to ask others to drop out.......especially Santorum.

Newt chose to take a loveseat with Natzi Pelosi, kiss Hitlery’s enlarged backside, and give race-baiting poverty pimp credibility on his “education tour”....that’s just as bad as having Teddy Kennedy write the education bill. He expects us to dismiss his LIEberal record as “mistakes”.

Newt is a loser who wasn’t able to gain much traction from Iowa or New Hampshire so he decided to pull an Obama and try to drive out the competition so our choices are limited and he’s the lesser of two evils??? How easily people sell their souls for the “win”. To hell with that.

Your right about that....anyone seeking high office isn’t a quitter and will pull out all the stops. But Newt is off base in my mind because he hasn’t finished in the top three yet but he’s calling for everyone else to drop out??

Any of the people would win if the base would Consolidate behind them....If Perry and Newt dropped out of course Santourum would be a lock. But at this stage and SC being an important state all will stay in splitting the votes and Romney of course will come out on top. The media will crown Romney the winner of the whole thing. Sickening....We are on our way to another Obama term folks

He’s also absolutely correct. He is our best hope to avoid a Romney candidacy. Rick, Rick, and Ron need to bow out if they are any kind of conservatives. If they don’t, it’s clear who they are endorsing in this race and it ain’t the conservative.

Polls aren't votes. Santorum came in second or perhaps even first in Iowa. Newt was fifth. In NH, they were virtually tied for fourth place.

Newt is a great debater but a poor campaigner who failed to get a good ground game together. He missed the ballots in VA and Missouri. He has never even run a statewide campaign let alone a national one. Before he starts asking everyone else to clear the field for him, let's see him win SC first.

Yes, I believe Newt can overcome his baggage. There was a caller on Rush yesterday with an interesting statement on that:

“Newt has a lot of baggage, but we know what his baggage is. Obama has a lot of baggage but we’re not allowed to look in his suitcase.”

All Newt has to do is remind the media of this over and over, and methinks they will drop the baggage subject...

Newt as a debater is tops. Obama would be floored if the debates were open and not rehearsed. I can see Newt as causing Obama to stay away from an open debate. But the Newt baggage will be pounded into us ad-nauseam by the MSM. I’m sorry to say that the GOP has no one that will drive the Independents to the polls. IMHO, its not a mater of ABO, its just that there is no fire there to motivate a large turn out. I’m seeing a lot of 2012 Obama stickers here in a largely Republican area. When Palin and Cain were forced out the fire disappeared. What is left is Blaaaaaah. Blaaaah won’t win. Romney, Newt et.al., won’t do it, and the Dems, know it. I would go with Newt though, because he knows how to answer Obama in an open debate. (If he is allowed to. I’m sure Obama’s handlers will try their best to only allow a controlled debate.)
