Great article, thanks for that.
Amen to your words.
Oh, wait. It's Santorum splitting the votes.
Oh, wait. It's Paul splitting the votes.
Maybe you'll get it.
Yes, thanks to Newt there is a fiscally conservative solution in the race, too bad so many aren’t interested in economic recovery.
Than explain how the Santorum progressive income tax rates of 10% and 28% is in any way conservative? Is it going to be millionaires and billionaires at $200,000 get the higher rate?
Yes, Santorum promises to triple the dependent child income tax credit, does that include those who pay no taxes getting a check? Fiscal conservative my eye. Santorum might know Social Conservatism, but fiscally conservatism has to be taught like Romney, thanks Newt!
This is what the “voter's second choice” polls cited by CharlesWayneCT were showing in January... a significant percentage of Gingrich voters had Romney as their second choice, and the same for Santorum voters.
We really, really, really need to get current poll data on Santorum and Gingrich voters’ second choices, preferably broken down state-by-state in the upcoming primary and caucus states.
I'm pinging this to the people who seem to be the key Santorum and Gingrich supporters here. I would be extremely unhappy if a pullout by either Gingrich or Santorum had the effect of boosting Romney.
My goal is to defeat Romney in the primary and Obama in the general election. I like Santorum, but I can live with Gingrich. If the best way to defeat Romney is for both candidates to stay in the race and combine their votes at the convention, that's fine with me.
Time is quickly running out and we do not have room for mistakes.
Only if he competes..and if he keeps losing home games he’ll stop being competitive.
Gingrich needs to get off his ass and start campaigning.
It is not bull. Romney does not have the Conservative vote. Rick and Newt have it.
That and Santorum said yesterday on Glenn Beck that he has no problem with Newt staying in. He likes that the left has a split target. Today a word about Rick, tomorrow they target Newt, next (rarely) they target Mitt. Hellsbells, they are even going after Palin.
At the VERY beginning, I remember Newt saying that he was talking to Santorum. I wonder if they have a plan.
And don't forget, that when Newt is in his advertising is far more directed at Romney than Santorum.
I hope that everyone who is pissing and moaning about Rick remembers Dick Cheney.
Let’s do this....Imagine.
Rick and Newt stay in.
Rick gets tons of delegates, Newt gets some. Together they have enough to beat Mitt.
Rick says, “Newt VP”
Now, everything that Rick is weak in, like Cheney, Newt handles.
I would like it better if the roles were reversed, but at this point, I don’t see a Newt win. Newt is a pretty smart cookie. Rick is no piker. As a team, they rock.
Conservatives all over the country are settling on their chosen standard bearer. Rick Santorum. Newt’s colossal ego won’t allow him to face facts and get out of the way.
Her song is really, really getting old, isn't it? Wouldn't be so bad if it had more than just one note over and over and over...
Newt is now moot. Yesterday's races were in his own backyard, where his FR supporters were pracrtically guaranteeing victories, and Santorum beat him and Romney with a little room to spare. Sooner or later Newt will see the writing on the wall. I just hope it's sooner.
You’re correct Gingrich is the Ross Perot.Pay no attention to the bully freeper ping list that are diehard Gingrich supporters.They are the minority in the real world outside of the sick cult
this website has become.This bully cult ping list that everyone is sick of said that Santorum was in the tank for Romney and called good candidates like Bachmann RINO’s.And now that it is so clear Gingrich should have dropped out a long time ago and get behind the one chance we had....they are hellbent on electing Romney so they can whine and moan some more? What happened to country first?
Why are you assuming that Newt’s supporters would default to Santorum if Gingrich wasn’t in the race?
A lot of us don’t really like either Romney or Santorum, because they’re both big government establishment schlubs.
If Gingrich is successful in preventing Florida from giving all their delegates to Romney then maybe it’s worth it that he’s staying in.
