Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.
Have another beer...go walk the dog, shoot your pistol...take a break.
I agree. They need to get together on this one for the good of the country.
Didnt you hear ? ....this is Bush’s fault
You do realize, don’t you, that by posting this you are buying into the media repub establishment gyrations of Romney’s electability... it’s just the day after a seemingly winning night. Even if you support Rick - I support Newt - there is time. Chill. It will all be fine. It will.
This time it REALLY IS(The Bush’s Fault)!
Lighten up, Francis.
Rick knows NEWT is the better candidate - and Rick was never in it to win it with his sorry @ss record, the pathetic whiner. He’s doing this ‘for the team/GOP E’.
You are wrong my friend. Rick Santorum is the viable conservative candidate!!! Newt Gingrich had his chance and he blew it big time. The Georgia win last night was sad because Gingrich has zero chance of getting the GOP POTUS nomination. Listen, i like Gingrich, he’s both smart & creative!!! But....he has a vengence streak in him, not good for a true leader. Facts are facts, Newt has no more chance of being POTUS, then I have of eating swiss cheese on the moon.
If Gingrich truly loved his country, he would remove himself from contention this very day!!! And.......if the Gingrichbots on this very site really want to get rid of Obama and save our magnificent nation, they would all be shouting to Gingrich to call it quits......and let Santorum take down Romney!!!
I agree one should drop out. If Mitt gets nominated, I can see blaming them for that. If Obama gets reelected, I’ll blame Mitt, though. Obama is beatable ... even by Mitt.
In my humble opinion, I think if romney wins, God has others plans. Maybe to start a party that doesn’t expect us to line up for their candidate; who is a liberal (not a moderate). They take us for granted. In that religious leadership meeting, romney’s religious leaders said, romney will win and the party will line up for him. I’ll get the exact quote. Have to leave. Cheer up, there is no place better to be, than in God’s will and plans.
What about Ron Paul?
That said, even if Mitt wins the nomination I’m still not voting for him. Maybe I’ll vote for Roseanne Barr, but this is the year the GOP Establishment no longer is entitled to my vote.
Yes, if that means Obama gets back in then so be it. I’d honestly rather have the black Obama than the white version.
“Rick knows NEWT is the better candidate”
Hell yes he does. He is now stealing Newts talking points. This clown has rarely or NEVER mentioned the Declaration of Independence, founding fathers or Constitution in this primary, until recently. Now he thinks he invented it them.
While Newt needs to be the one to drop (he gets slaughtered in most states) I agree with you 100% Both staying in the race guarantees Mittens gets the nominations.
Romney is utterly, and completely, un-electable. When it gets to the debates, Obama will slaughter him.
I will blame the 72% that did not drag their asses to the polls to vote... 18% turnout is the average... let’s put the blame where it lies, the lazy ones too damn busy to walk away from american idol to exersize their civic duty....
You do know this will be our last shot at saving our country, don't you? Do you honestly think we'll be able to turn back once obama and the radicals have full control in a nothing-to-lose second term? We can hold Romney's feet to the fire but obama will be unstoppable. His first term is Exhibit A. Sorry, but I don't hate Romney enough to throw away my grandchildren's futures.
ooppsss... I meant 82% not 72% ( math skills lacking )
the unelectability of all candidates.
I decided a long time ago not to vote for Romney or Paul but will write in Newt. I held my nose & voted for Dole & McCain but no longer will toe the Republican line. Looks like I’m going Independent which is funny since I started out as a Democrat then a Republican & now heading towards Independent. I stay the same but the parties keep moving to Socialism.
“We can hold Romney’s feet to the fire”
Like ‘we’ did in Massachussetts when Romney was governor? Yeah, remind me again how that worked out? And why should I expect that a Romney presidency will be any different from a Romney governorship?
Sarah Palin, God bless her, was on the news this morning and she said she’s going to be at the GOP convention and that she’s wanting it to be an open convention.
Maybe she’ll run and save us from that damnable robot, Romney.
I blame his supporters that give him ANY credence. He’s no damn conservative - HE IS THE ENEMY!!
LOL! That's funny.
Sometimes, you just have to look forward. Not everyone repeats past mistakes. These are obama years and we know what he’s capable of, the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been. Even Sarah Palin last night said she would stand with him if he is the nominee.
The Obama opposotion team probably already has so much material ready to unleash on Mitt that he can’t win anyway.
Mitt won’t be able to outspend Obama 6 to 1, which is the only way he’s made it this far in the primaries.
I’m blaming Rick Perry and Tim Pawlenty.
the purists who trashed Newt over the “amnesty” issue when he was on top of the polls.
Slick Rick is fooling those who can be fooled. He’s a lying POS.
Mitt wont be able to outspend Obama 6 to 1, which is the only way hes made it this far in the primaries.
I’m sorry, but I’m a conservative first and a Republican second. If the GOP won’t put up a conservative then they are not owed my vote. Bear in mind, I’m saying this so I have to wonder how many people who feel the same as I do but won’t say it will merely not vote in November if Mittens gets the nod?
Bottom line is I’m not kidding about my tag line.
The GOP didn’t stop anyone from jumping into the race. Palin, DeMint and others could have run. They chose not to and this is what we’re left with. The process has been playing out and the voters having been deciding along the way, or doesn’t that matter?
He's stealing more than Newt's talking points. He's stealing Newt's ideas, innovations, solutions, and proposals, as if his puny little mind thought them up himself. Santorum is treating them like talking points, they are Newt's life work. I am from a military family, you don't treat your mentors that way - love 'em or hate 'em - you respect them.
That is an interesting point you made: "This clown has rarely or NEVER mentioned the Declaration of Independence, founding fathers or Constitution in this primary, until recently. Now he thinks he invented it them.
It might be interesting to do a little side by side comparison of of who's been talking about conservative principles and since when... I have a strong feeling Newt would win that little graphic.
Gingrich is ahead in the delegate count -time for Santos to SHUT HIS PIEHOLE
Yes, friend it may engender lots-of-laughs, but.....the truth is still the truth!!! Won’t argue with you, as time will tell!!! To be completely honest with you....I don’t give a hoot for Newt or Rick or Romney!!!! If the “Village Idiot” carrying the GOP POTUS banner can take out Obama, that is all I care about!!! And....that is who I am voting for!!! I live and work to see Obama destroyed politically, along with his entire “dirt bag” Democrat Party!!! If you want to worship a failed, flawed Newt, be my guest.
I don't worship any candidate. If you want to worship a vest-wearing, hypocritical sissy, go for it.
Last time I checked, a lot of conservatives support Santorum.
After all he’s won more states than Newt and has more delegates.
The idiots in the Republican Party who voted for Mittens. They apparently discounted his “executive” experience as Governor of Massghanistan and have forgotten that the worst presidents in my lifetime—Carter and Clinton—were outsiders (meaning they never served in any capacity within the federal government before.) I would also add Obama to my list of worst presidents of my lifetime noting that while he was elected to the U.S. Senate, I have had trouble finding real evidence that he served there.
OR remember he campaigned for the ONLY candidate in '08 who was PRO ABORTION and anti traditional marriage, homo supporter Mitt. Campaigning trying to convince voters Mitt's the man.
See my tag!
You can blame the Newt, Rick, the establishment all you want but the fact that there are so many Republican Primary voters stupid enough to vote for Romney shows that the Democrats and Independents don't have a monopoly on idiocy.
Just take this famous internet post
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.
And modify it to
The danger to America is not Mitt Romney but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Republican nomination.

And you see how this country is truely F()@#!&$
I blame his supporters that give him ANY credence. Hes no damn conservative - HE IS THE ENEMY!!
And also blame Rove, Coulter, Drudge, Faux...., who is brainwashing the right to believe the lie that only romney can win. I think he and paul are the only ones that CAN”T win.
So tell us Oh Wise One, who does Gingrich wish to wreak his vengeance on?
I don’t think anyone should drop out. I want to hear ALL their ideas, because that means more voters than just Republicans are hearing them. The more conservative notions are given publicity, the better for the country.
I don't hate Romney, but I do see he is no different than Obama with his documented lies, cheating and destroying good people to get power for himself. If you want to see what the leaders of his own state (attorney general...religious leaders said he DID after he said he was against gay marriage & abortion, let me know, you can read it for yourself.)
I WILL NEVER vote for romney or paul. I don't think romney will make it, but I could be wrong. If the gop doesn't see that soon, then we will KNOW they don't care about getting the white house, just power for themselves.
I'd rather a democrats be the destroyer of this country, than a republican, and romney WILL be.
A conservative third party (C) will bring the base and those who want to rid themselves of everything that has been wrong with politics for a long time.
It is what it is. I’m praing fro santorum, but if Mitt is the nominee, then so be it. I will vote for a pet rock and do all I can to elect a pet rock rather than let obama get 4 more years.
As plain as the nose on anyones face is the pure idiocy of “sitting this one out” and letting obama win.
I do not think Santorum can beat 0bama. Romney has slight chance of beating 0bama. Still hoping for Newt to come through here.
