That Rick Santorum is such a kidder.

I just a clip on CBS news where he says "many of these delegates aren't committed. They can go anywhere"

No Ricky. Many of YOUR delegates aren't committed and can't wait to get away from you.

Two very smart Freepers, VinL and RitaOK, posted these two posts last night on a different thread, and I think they sum up exactly where things are right now. And during that thread Newt was on Greta, and said the three conservatives had to “short” Romney at the convention… that’s the path to victory.

VinL:

Newt can’t beat Romney one on one- neither can Rick. Romney has too much money and institutional power.
Rick and Newt only have a chance. They they stay in, and don’t campaign against each other. Instead, each attacks Romney and the Gop-e for having “fixed” this GOP primary- and they threaten to bolt the party.
The battle is grassroots against the establishment— and Rick and Newt have to make that argument together.

RitaOK:

” Newt can’t beat Romney one on one- neither can Rick. Romney has too much money and institutional power. “ ——
Vin, I’m glad you lay the truth out there. It is a fact.
I have known this also for weeks, but clung to hope, which led to prayer, and that somehow this cycle was so very different that the truly daunting events and the present facts could be reversed, that Republican voters would wake up and see the machine fix in place.

What is left is to pray that ALL three candidates can mess with Romney long enough to GET US TO CONVENTION, so that we will have earned a hearing of our complaints there, a seat at the table, and be in a position to offer up the delegate war as our bono fidis!

THE DELEGATES, OF ALL THREE, ARE OUR FINAL AND ONLY WEAPON
TO HAVE A VOICE OF OPPOSITION TO THE RINOS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

Alone, none of these candidates against Romney have a prayer, and We The People, the instance one drops out, are silenced and dismissed, left with nothing but theater.
The Establishment is in no real panic and that is quite telling, but for Barbara Bush, of course. But the Establishment knows exactly how this ends because we have failed to unite in time to overwhelm.

Santorum will NEVER be the nominee, one on one.

Newt will NEVER be the nominee, one on one, maybe period.

Ron Paul will certainly NEVER be the nominee by any math.

IMHO, Rick and Newt are unlikely to allign because Rick is so naieve, but as you said, to have a prayer they MUST together get radical and present a united front against Romney at all costs, for us to have a prayer to change the party apparatus, agenda and defeatism of RINO leadership.
I am certain Newt knows this and has tried with smoke signals to confer with Santorum, but Rick is small picture and mostly for Rick, and runs on just enough grandiosity and battle drama to blind him to any need for unity. This is not a sign of wisdom.

We can not be demoralized but instead must push for a united front, and in a serious rebellion against the Establishment, rather than push for one to get out.
Now, the truth is out there.

RitaOK:

Just saw Newt on GRETA, and I am pretty sure he said the same thing we are discussing. I would have to catch it on a rewind, but he is definitly convention bound for a purpose, and it includes hoping to short Romney on delegates.
The odds for change rise or fall with holding delegates from Romney.
The man invented how to score big. He knows.
Just hope we don’t fail to get the message.

"No Ricky. Many of YOUR delegates aren't committed and can't wait to get away from you. "

Yep.

Problem is many Social Conservatives have hitched themselves to that train and are all in. All in.

They're going to be broken hearted. Some angry at the perceived injustice.

Many will stay home, some will vote against the eventual GOP nominee if it is not Santorum.
