Allegedly he's dropping out because of his daughter's health. I suspect it's more likely he knows he can't win, and wants to drop out before his decision is completely irrelevant.

watch the RINO bots to come on here now and say lets unite to defeat obama, his paid staffers will be on here telling us the same.

Seems they want us to forget how he attacked Newt, the base ignored, his check to planned parenthood, pro homo agenda,

as for his baby , well hopefully she gets well but she was sick months ago when he was gong after Newt and after he had not one pone county in NH, SC,FL but stayed in then thus Newt being taken out.

Crap - just read Yahoo blurb that said Santorum called Romney to concede. Lord, I hope that doesn’t mean he’s throwing his support to the Mittster...

If he does throw his support to Romney, he's a bigger loser than I originally thought, however if he throws his delegates and support to Newt then that's a redeeming quality I could not over look.

She’s been in the hospital twice now in recent months. Her health is still precarious, I would imagine.

Because Santorum was heading to a loss in his home state of Pennsylvania. Losing his home state (again) would destroy any chances he could have in future races.

Good point. Republicans almost always pick the previous loser the next time around. Next time it could be "Rick's turn".

I don’t want Obama for another 4 years but Romney is going to lose. He has the political skills of a stick. He’s boring and a wooden personality like Al Gore. A flip flopper and out of touch like Kerry. No connection like Dole and won’t go hard after Obama like McCain.....in essence Mitt has all the atributes of Presidential losers

So, you're just going to mope around with your head hung low and not get behind the Republican candidate? You will contribute to a defeat if you do not get behind our only hope of getting rid of Obama and his progressive minions. Romney may not be the best, but now he is all we have. Put some effort into getting out the vote. Do your part!

He suspended his campaign, but I don’t think he ever mentioned Romney by name in the speech. Time to start working to drag not-Obama Romney across the line. Time also to redouble efforts to elect the best possible House and Senate so they can drag a President Romney in our direction in spite of himself.

Sad. And we are left with another weak Rino just like in 2008. Lets hope Mitt picks a REAL conservative VP so there is somethiong we can get enthusiastic about. If he picks another Rino as VP like Crispy Creme or Haley its just really gonna suck. Although I will vote for the ticket, I have doubts they can win ,and if they don’t, we are truely screwed.

We are fighting for something more than putting a REPUBLICAN in the White House. ROMNEY is a liberal that will do more damage than good.

Many of us believe that 4 more years of Obama with a conservative house will be better than 4 years of Romney. We are sick of the establishment Republicans and tired ass candidates like GHWBush, Dole, McCain, Romney, etc.

We are products of the Reagan Revolution and we are pissed.

Romney does not get my vote.

I am getting really depressed over the direction of the GOP.

Our local GOP, state and county, is just going nuts.

Last year, they endorsed a giant coal terminal in our county that is a crony partnership between Goldman Sachs, BNSF, Peabody Coal and the White House.

This Saturday, our local GOP is giving a forum for developers of a giant wind farm that will be built with federal subsidies and loans, windmills that will be almost 500 feet tall, in a state that can’t even use all the hydro-power that we can create.

Our former state GOP chair is now a lobbyist for the SEIU, and some of our top candidates believe that if they support the unions, the unions are ready to vote GOP. They are just plain nuts.

What’s this about mopping? I may vote for Romney but that doesn’t mean that I believe that he will win. It’s foolish to hide his political deficiencies and weaknesses - he’s just a terrible campaigner. I voted for Dole and he lost and I voted for McCain (i really voted for Sarah) and he lost. Romney is going to lose barring a collapse of the economy this fall

I have no idea what you are rambling about. I have never been for Santorum. I donated to Palin, Cain, and Gingrich in that order. I am glad Santorum is gone. He should have left a long time ago. But I don’t hate him. You have enough hatred to be a member of the New Black KKK. You can keep it.

Yep, I agree..

Thanks so much Santurom for giving us Romney!

Because his little girl was sick he is dropping out... hmmm
I feel for that precious little girl but IF he really was leaving because of his sick little girl, why not in Florida???

I think a set up is more like it. We were set up for Romney.
He was for Romney from the beginning. He stayed in to force Newt out. He waited until Newt said something about not making it and then Wham! He gets out.

Angry about this as I can be.

Santorum knew before he even decided to run that he had a critically ill daughter. The first time he suspended campaign because she was in the hospital I wondered what the heck would happen if he were president and that proverbial 3am phone call came at the same time. God Bless him, Bella and the rest of his family, but a child that sick is too much of a distraction. And she should be! All that time wasted, all the money, all the effort could have gone to help another candidate. It’s incredibly sad. And disappointing. This whole season has been. Well, onward. The most important thing is getting 0bama out or we won’t have a country left to save.

I am very sad that we are now STUCK w/Willard.

In his speech, Rick SUSPENDED his campaign...I take that to mean he IS NOT releasing his delegates. He also did NOT endorse or even mention Myth by name.

Maybe there is something behind the scenes...Obamaney CANNOT Etch-a-Sketch his way to the middle. The only way to save the Country is for the Bishop to be FORCED to stay right. Maybe that is what Newt and Rick will be doing.

I am equally as saddened by the hate...on a conservative site...for a conservative like Santorum. It’s shameful.

I don’t want Obama for another 4 years but Romney is going to lose.

Actually it is the GOP's race to lose if they make the elections a referendum on Obama and his policies. Do the American people really want four more years of Obama? Are they still believers in hope and change or does the reality of massive debt, high unemployment, skyrocketing gas prices, socialist healthcare, etc. determine which way they will vote.

No Rep could have beat Obama in 2008 and certainly McCain was the worst possible candidate. Everyone seems to forget what happened in the 2010 midterms, one of the most historic in our history. The Dems were routed at the federal, state, and local levels. Do the 2010 midterms portend what happens in 2012 similar to the 2006 midterms that brought the Dems back into control of Congress?

Predictions of a GOP loss in 2012 are much too premature and more than likely, wrong. And this is without the growing economic doom in Europe, China's hard landing, and tensions in the Middle East and on the Korean peninsula. And then there are the SCOTUS decisions on Obamacare and AZ 1070 due in June.

If Romney has all the political attributes of a Presidential loser, Obama has the record and problems of a Presidential loser--bigtime.

That last line was kinda personal, dude.

The issue is Santorum should have dropped out early. Everyone knew it and asked him, but no he had to go only his holier than thou campaign.

Frankly, given is political history, I think he’s a paid spoiler for Romney.

.....and, I could give a hoot in hell what you think of me.

He faced the very real possibility of losing his home state in two weeks. That would pretty much put an end to his political career.

His next move should be to hand over his delegates to Newt and put all he has behind him. Maybe even announce a vice-presidency interest under Newt. That way the conservatives will have more muscle to take down mittens.

utter crap, wonder what position he will be given if the RINO wins and we’re supposed to ignore the attacks on Newt, ignore how he ignored the base and ignore his liberal positions because the establishment wants us too

There is no way though I will ever forget the attacks the establishment, FOX, Drudge, Coulter did on Newt .

Funny how they did not try and force Rick out after he never won one county in NH, then SC , then FL and that is when his daughter was sick ion hospital then.

Now we’ll see where Rick goes and hopefully he proves me wrong by going to Newt but if he goes to Romney then it would show what many on here have been saying why Rick stayed in.
Even when it showed he had no chance and was takijng votes away from Newt after SC

I don’t see where Rick S goes from here polically. It’s too late to run for Senate again. No obvious office for him to run for on the horizon with the other Senate seat and Governorship in GOP hands.

Slick’s cabinet seems like the only thing, if he wants that.

Oh I forgot one possibilty, President 2016 if Baraq wins.

Since obviously Republicans love nominating people who have run before and lost.

Romney, McCain, Dole, Bush SR., Reagan, Nixon, Dewey. All of them either lost a previous general election (Nixon) or failed to get the nomination in a previous election or both (Dewey).
