Skip to comments.Santorum campaign hoping for help from Gingrich
Posted on 03/01/2012 1:35:56 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Short on money and staff, Rick Santorum needs help to remain a viable threat to front-runner Mitt Romney in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. One strategist hopes it will come from another rival, Newt Gingrich.
Top adviser John Brabender says Santorum's future may depend upon Gingrich leaving the race. The former House speaker is showing no signs of bowing out, certainly not before next week's Super Tuesday voting.

Baby Rick's ego is going to keep him running and result in another 4 years of obamanism.
Interesting and odd. Which makes it seem their objective was not smoothly advanced; very ham-handed. I expect it will have an effect though on blunting his edges on that front.
Love your analysis, CC..and positive comments..
Yes to Rick. Newt should drop out and help him after Ga.
Newt is the best we have.
That is the truth that no Mark Levin or anyone else can hide.
If we do get another four years of Hussein, LL, it won’t be because of anything that Rick Santorum did.
It’ll be due to the stupid entitlement minded drones who drink the Obama kool-aid and MSM propaganda once again and vote for him..
And an out of touch GOP-E who tries to foist a lying, flip flopping Rino from Massachusetts on us and pretend that he’s a viable Conservative.
It might seem ham-handed to us, but to them it was a great talk show schtick to entice listeners...WHAT? A conservative atheist?? WHAT?? A conservative atheist who just loves Rick Santorum?? (And a woman, too!).
They both loved pushing that “atheist who loves Rick” angle. Like they believed they knew exactly what they were doing.
As you suggested, it seems political...to show that Rick has no political problems...why, the brilliant commentator, conservative, woman, atheist S.E. Cupp just loves him.
I think it seems odd to ordinary folks like us, though...
(I’ve been on the Breitbart suddenly passes away of natural causes thread. I’m still in SHOCK.)
I agree that Newt is the best we have...I love his mind and his great ideas.
But how do you think he can get the nomination by himself?
I suggest he and Santorum team up and do whatever is necessary to defeat Romney.
I pray Obama doesn’t get four more years.
If it happens, it’s a matter of opinion as to whether Santorum played a part.
Yours is that he has played no part.
Mine is that he has played a part.
The candidate with the most juice to deal with Obama is Newt Gingrich. IF you watch him, hear him, read him, consider his experience and dead on knowledge of history and his incredible ability to communicate AMERICA, he has no peer among those still standing.
Those are facts.
People are free to downplay him or dump on him or ignore him, for his mistakes and “baggage”, but they can’t hide that truth that he brings the most to the battle.
Neither Mitt nor Rick even belong in the same category with him.
But if there were no Santorum and if it were Newt vs Romney with ALL opposed to Mitt being united behind Newt, Newt would defeat Romney and be best prepared to fight Obama and the Democrat, Saul Alinsky Left.
Santorum had the right to run, same as Newt. I’m not arguing that. But decisions have consequences.
He has a big following now, but he has problems, and he has never had the juice Newt Gingrich has. Very few mortals do.
Romney, meanwhile, took down Newt with bazillions in nasty, false ads in FL, after Newt had won a smashing victory in SC. That was real lucky for Rick, who swept right into that void. (On the other hand, Perry dropped out and both he and Cain endorsed Newt Gingrich.)
All of these things have all but removed the best we have from center stage.
Rick played NO part?
Sure he played A part...
“I suggest he and Santorum team up and do whatever is necessary to defeat Romney.”
I see no “TEAM” in Gingrich/Santorum period. I don’t personally wish to see Santorum anywhere near the WH unless destiny makes it so.
This country needs the only person currently running for POTUS with the leadership ability at this time in the precarious history of this Nation that can bulldoze the buildup of solidified deposits of Marxism from the halls of this Constitutional Republic, and make it work as intended once again.
My goal is to see Romney defeated and whomever can accomplish that, be it Newt, Rick or a combo thereof, will have my deepest respect.
I wish them both the very best.
At this point, if they serve only to divide the delegate votes enough to force a brokered convention, that will be a result worthy of praise.
Realistically, the only way to stop Mitt is for Rick to bow out and support Newt, not vice versa.
Rick's a big government republican. He ain't no Tea Party favorite. Newt is.
