You mean he hasn’t? Who knew?
I think he will be out after Florida - perhaps even sooner since it doesn’t appear he can even compete in the sunshine state. His win in Iowa sort of entitles him to at least try for a bit longer I suppose, but everyone knows Santorum is not going to be the nominee.
I hope he goes back to PA and runs and wins an election or two and gives it another shot on a national level in some future presidential cycle. It was just too soon for him after losing by 18 in 2006.
I am sure that Santorum doesn’t need your advice. He is smart enough to do what he wants. He is 35 and American citizen and that is about what it takes to run for President. So Rick you decide what to do. It is TOTALLY up to you. I like having the insurance of him in the race as a “just in case”.
Erick Erickson needs to STFU. He’s run his mouth enough already and done serious damage to the Conservative cause, beginning with his attacks last year on Sarah Palin. Screw him!
There have been three primaries.
How sad. rick Santorum is a good man, very presidential. Once again we will be left with the dregs. It shouldn’t be much longer before Jeb bush jumps in. In that case I won’t bother to vote.
I hope he stays in. the PEOPLE OF Florida have NOT voted yet.
Rick had a golden opportunity to stand above the rest in the last debate and did not take advantage. Then you take a look at Newt’s speech today about the space program and it is clear why I am supporting Newt. Rick is not offering up anything. Just that he is Conservative. Well that alone will not get it done. GO NEWT GO!
He probably will if he doesn’t get traction soon. My q is, whom will he endorse, if anyone?
He ain’t taking and it doesn’t matter how much I like him.
despite an all-out values attack against Gingrich.
***It didn’t strike me as all-out.
The kook Ron Paul needs to drop out
No but the loudmouth Ericson can kiss my arse.
If we are stuck with Romney, Santorum is going to be a very disliked man by many conservatives.
I think Rick has great “influence” and at this point may be better suited to helping the eventual nominee defeat Obama. I would love to see him take on that battle. If he leaves now, he leaves intact with plenty of respect and that will allow him to have more credibility later. Just my two cents.
At the time he dropped out, Perry was very unlikely to win, but threatened Newt’s ability to beat out Mitt.
I don’t think that’s the case now with Santorum. He will drop back down to just a few percent at most, so Newt should continue to do well unless he screws up or some scandal raises its head. In other words, Newt could beat Newt, but I don’t think Rick can at this point.
But he does represent a genuinely conservative backup in the race in case Newt implodes for some reason. We’ve seen a lot of ups and downs in this primary cycle.
Frankly, I was hoping that Sarah Palin would be drawn back in, but it doesn’t look like that’s in the cards.
Yeah, let’s encourage the only conservative in the race to drop out. That’s the ticket!
I vote that Santorum stays in as a “backup battery” for a while. Newtonium is very volatile.
Santorum never was a real contender. Although he worked his tail off there, the Iowa win was basically an undeserved windfall for him.
Like I’ve said for a while now, his numbers are simply reverting to trend.
Can’t disagree with that. He only helps mittens from this point on, and even that is minimal
