Well somebody gets it. I have been saying this ever since he won the 3 nothing states that nobody else competed in. I have never understood how any thinking person could vote for this empty suit. He comes across like a whiny sanctimonious 5th grader. There was one true accomplished adult conservative in the race who could articulate the issues and the supposedly conservative base turned their backs on him to support a born again charismatic holier than thou Catholic (and yes I am a pro-life Catholic) with a big government establishment voting record.
Pray for a brokered convention.
“Pray for a brokered convention.”
I really wanted Newt, but he just isn’t winning.
How will a brokered convention really help us? If things keep going as they are Romulus will get it or be so close an alternative candidate won’t be offered.
Has this happened in the past?
I am thinking that now that Newt is going down, we have no alternative but to start support Ricky. Where else can we turn?
I share your desire, but not the word that you use to describe it. The word "brokered" carries a negative connotation that is aimed at making us believe that we must choose our nominee before the Convention or face disaster. Hogwash - choosing nominees is what conventions are for!
What I desire is an open convention, with Mitt Romney at 40 and the Not-Mitt Romneys at 60%. After the first ballot, the delegates will be free to choose our nominee. That's why they're there, and I'll support the nominee.

Yes, I’m still incredulous over it.
We need a brokered/contested convention, much to the establishment’s consternation.
I bear no ill will toward Santorum, but he can’t win. Our #1 mission is to get BHO out, and that requires cold objectivity. Romney is a sitting duck as well.
If Newt were the nominee, the media couldn’t ignore him or shut him down, and the masses would get to hear him.
A few days ago I made fun of that, and a Gingrich supporter took my head off claiming that Gingrich was actually praising Santorum for being smart enough to compete for those states, not calling them "nothing states".
Republicans need to compete in Colorado to win the Presidency. Your dismissal of that state, and worse, Missouri, doesn't make your opinion very credible. It would be nice to win the Minnesota Senate race as well, the 3rd state you dismiss as "nothing".
