Drop out, Santorum.
This thing is not over, by a long shot.
This is the country that put men on the moon -- and brought them back again.
Well, no -- this is the country that shares the name and occupies the space of the country that put men on the moon and brought them back again.
Take a few pointers from Herman and Michele.
You are becoming more of (if this is possible) an embarrassment than the Whacked Out Old Guy.
You really don't like being talked down to do you junior?
If you would just listen to Newt you might have a political future.
This cat knew the jig was up prior to the first debate
This is what a CLASS ACT looks like, Santorum... the article made it very clear it wasn’t just a going-through-the-motions kind of support. The speaker of the SC House supported Perry and then went on to help Newt once Perry left, and last night Newt said that SC Speaker Guy rolled out a tremendous ground game for Newt and made a big difference... I, for one, will never forget what Perry did for Newt. Never.
His money will begin to roll in, from Romney.
If Rick goes after Newt, he’s done. Just the facts. People are sick of conservatives going after conservatives, and Newt is campaigning for conservatives.

Santorum; Big government spender:
Get in there and get dirty Ricky, you can help mittens over this hump
"This whole idea of personal autonomy, well I dont think most conservatives hold that point of view. Some do. They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldnt get involved in the bedroom, we shouldnt get involved in cultural issues. You know, people should do whatever they want. Well, that is not how traditional conservatives view the world and I think most conservatives understand that individuals cant go it alone." [source]
"What was my vision? I came to the uncomfortable realization that conservatives were not only reluctant to spend government dollars on the poor, they hadnt even thought much about what might work better. I often describe my conservative colleagues during this time as simply cheap liberals. My own economically modest personal background and my faith had taught me to care for those who are less fortunate, but I too had not yet given much thought to the proper role of government in this mission." Rick Santorum, p. IX It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good (2005)
"I suspect some will dismiss my ideas as just an extended version of compassionate conservatism. Some will reject what I have said as a kind of Big Government Conservatism. Some will say that what Ive tried to argue isnt conservatism at all. But I believe what Ive been presenting is the genuine conservatism our Founders envisioned. One that fosters the opportunity for all Americans to live as we are called to live, in selfless families that contribute to the general welfare, the common good." Rick Santorum, p. 421 It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good (2005)
"If you're a conservative, there really is only one place to go right now. I would even argue farther than that. If you're a Republican, if you're a Republican in the broadest sense, there is only one place to go right now and that's Mitt Romney." Rick Santorum, 02/1/2008 [source]
It is for Santorum.
If it weren't for the fact that Santorum isn't on Gringrich's radar, Gingrich could use Santorum's own words as ammo against him.
It might not be over, but it’s over for Santorum.
Rick, how does this message sound: I have decided to suspend my campaign for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. I have decided to endorse Newt Gingrich because he is a conservative who cares about America and the American people.
"I have decided to endorse Newt Gingrich because he is a conservative who cares about America and the American people, and I am just a sanctimonious prig ."
