Your dedicated animosity against the conservative and freerepublic favorite is difficult to understand, it isn’t unusual with Santorum supporters, many of whom, are old Romney supporters.
That isn’t the case with you I don’t think, but it still gets to the Gingrich versus Romney argument.
If you are an old anti-Romney warrior, then you notice many of the old Romneybots now supporting Santorum with you and really despising Newt Gingrich, with you.
The old Romney crowd does not like Gingrich at all, Santorum they can accept, or hide behind, or even prefer this time, depending on the individual.
Yesterdays FR favorite isn’t the same as today’s. Winning elections changes things.
I have no dislike of Newt generally. I would vote for him if he was able to beat Milt, which seems increasingly unlikely now. I do find his supporters constant slamming of Rick baloney and I will fight on his behalf like I have done here at FR since he announced and I was the only one backing him. I don’t really care who else backs him and what their motivations are. Rick was my Senator for 2 terms and was a constant voice of values I believe in. He was a good Senator and will make a great President. Bank on it.
