.....FREDERICK, Maryland — After a week of laying off his rivals, GOP contender Newt Gingrich today tore into Mitt Romney, saying, “You can’t run a campaign with no principles,” and vowing to “go to Tampa” to contest the nomination.

Gingrich showed no signs of quitting the race, arguing that Romney does not have close to the 1,144 delegates needed to secure the nomination and insisting there is still the possibility of an open convention in Tampa.

“I can’t tell you today how realistic it is that we will get to an open convention, and I can’t tell you today with any certainty that I will be the nominee,” Gingrich told a modest crowd in the showroom at a car dealership.

“But I can tell you a couple of things. Despite six years of campaigning, $40 million dollars of his own money, millions raised from Wall Street — largely from people who got our tax money from the bailout — Governor Romney doesn’t have it locked down. And we have no obligation to back off and concede anything until he does.”....

Gingrich to Romney: Pick Conservative Platform

That is like trying to convince the Pope to give Scientology a try. There isn't a Conservative bone in Milts body. He just doesn't understand the concept in the least.

While Newt’s at it, I hope he fights for delegate reallocation rules to favor states which have actually voted GOP in presidential elections. Why does DC get to pick 19 delegates when they have less than 0% chance of voting GOP in the fall, whereas Delaware (which has at least a 10% chance of giving the GOP three electoral votes) only gets 17?

Sorry Newt, but it won’t make a bit of difference what platform Mitt runs on. He’ll still say and do anything he wants. You should know by now that an etch-a-sketch can always be erased.

One of Mitt’s many propaganda websites did say that the republican party has moved to join him in his 1994 support of gay rights, I suppose that means support for ENDA. If that is the case, the republican party has already left conservatives, but I would still hate to let him add that plank to the platform.

the opposition research this fall won’t be as kind to flip romney, as his fellow conservatives, and Newt.

Brilliant move-keep the focus on conservatism which Romney does not have that inner core of.

If you get to a contested convention, we may have a good chance of rejecting liberal democrat Romney.

Even Clinton is hoping for Romney(what does that say-that he
can be beat because of his flips flops of voting to promises that he would keep) If we end up with Romney, I think this is the last days for the republican party-who will follow them-really-look at the damage in which the rhinos are doing; just this year alone. Everyone has to face up to-that every politician goes to D.C,. becomes one of them/the problem. We need someone going there, who is Not one of them and does big things. Palin and Newt are the most disrespected by the party along with other conservatives ( Like Gov. Perry & Herman Cain)

Keep fighting, Newt... all the way to Tampa.

No matter what happens, we kept the faith.
