Santorum? The guy who couldn’t win his own state? That Santorum?
"Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says he expects to endorse Mitt Romney.
Santorum says that he believes Romney is "the right guy" to challenge President Barack Obama. ..."
Sainty 'Expects to endorse' the 'Right guy' Romney - LoL.
Yep. Romney, via Adelson, played FRingrichers masterfully. The only question is whether Gingrich was in on the scam or had his ego played by Adelson without realizing he was being used and then discarded.
It’s over now. We’ve now got Romney. Anybody for lemonade?
I didn’t think so.
Nothing short of the unthinkable will stop the march to globalism.
VERY unlikely. During the 19th century it wasn't uncommon for a party to lose 50% of its reps in a single election.
Not to mention that the Whig Party entirely disappeared. Which would seem to be a pretty significant defeat.
A couple of people who really don’t have a clue.
Just an honest look at the records is all anyone needs to do.
“When even Ron Paul has beaten you 8 more times than you have beaten him, its a very sad thing. Continuing to lose to Paul should have been a wake up call for Newt to drop the heck out, but Newt will only follow where his ego leads him.”
So much vile bile for a man who has done so much for conservatism. Such overkill. Why not think up a term like “Gingrichism” to get your jollies.
Speaker Newt Gingrich may be out of the primary but he isn’t going to stop shaping the conversation.
Just as Governor Rick Perry, Newt will be in the Left’s face shaping arguments in clear terms. Perry and Gingrich will never stop their fight against socialism nor back away from championing American exceptionalism and strength.
Why the perverse need to tear down a good man? What’s your angle?
That's what did it. Newt shows up on TV what a decade later holding no other office to say here I am. As governor or seantor he could have built back some credibility he lost. Newt carried a very huge trust issue. That is what cost him the nomination.
BTW where was Newt showing up the most? FOX News wasn't it before he declared? Who was Fox News behind? Romney all the way. I'm not sure Newt's sticking around was because of his ego or by design. In any case Conservatives have been had.
All this is true. It really wasn’t too hard to see. Like a trainwreck it was.
Once Santorum dropped out, I said our last chance was Gingrich so we need to back Gingrich as an “anybody but Romney” candidate.
That's now gone too.
As conservatives, we've lost. Barring something totally unforeseen, Romney is going to be the Republican nominee, and that means there's a very good chance Barack Obama is going to win re-election this fall.
We can blame lots of people for that.
Gingrich made mistakes — a lot of them. So did Santorum, Perry, Bachmann, and Cain. The bottom line is that I think Santorum and Gingrich get along much better than some of their supporters. Once this election is over, we're going to have to figure out a way to come together to pick up the pieces of this mess that has hit the Republican Party.
