How cute; the establishments newest member is now telling Santorum to quit the race. Hey Marco, I know most conservative neophytes think your a conservative god, but you haven't exactly proven yourself yet. Keep going down the road your going and eventually you'll be booted out of office.

Shouldn’t he be telling us why we should allow illegals to leech off taxpayers some more?

It's all part of the GOP-E most recent plan to shut down the primaries and crown Romney as the nominee and loser-designate. Conservatives should shut up and get our asses in line now since our supposed TEA Party leaders (Haley, DeMint, Ryan, Rubio, etc.) are doing it.

That's what going on here.

Rubio tell Santorum to drop out

He tell he that, fo' shizzle?

Odd, I get the actual title as:

Marco Rubio to Santorum and Gingrich: “It’s Time Now to Concede”

How do you suppose the title got changed like that?

Rubio: “Mr. Santorum, my new lover and master, Mitt has instructed me to tell you to please quit.”

I hate it when people change the titles. It means they want to hide something. Be honest.

That said, people should drop out when they are ready, not because a person tells them to.

Marco had to take some precious time away from crafting his new DREAM (backdoor amnesty) Act to try to bully the last competitive conservative out of the GOP race. So many GOP establishment tasks, so little time.

Let us suppose, for the sake of argument, that I believed that Romney’s ride to the nomination was unstoppable. He would not have a Macaca moment, a strenuously buried past action would not. ome to light, a would-be assassin’s bullet doesn’t send him to a wheelchair. With all of that, I would still vote for a Santorum or Gingrich, as their DELEGATES are more likely to make for a better platform, and keep the prezsure on Romney. Moreover, we need rule changes for future elections, and I xo NOT trust Romney supporters to make them.

This leaves me with some confliction - I like Marco Rubio, and I think he will go far in Republican, and yes, CONSERVATIVE Republican circles in the future. He is articulate, smart, and ready to defend what he thinks is right. I do not object to his endorsement of Mitt Romney, as such an endorsement does sort of weight Mitt back to the center, or even a little to the right.

But I like Santorum as well, and while the former Senator has perhaps not done as well as I would have hoped in pursuit of delegate count, he has proceeded in a good and mostly honorable effort to rally voters to his point of view.

And that point of view, I have sincerely believed to be close to that of Marco Rubio. The presence of Santorum on the campaign trail has forced (and a little force HAS been needed) Mitt Romney to polish and defend his conservative credentials, a service badly needed in the upcoming confrontation with the incumbent.

Mitt, on his own, would have proven to be even less formidable in facing Obama, than even McCain. There are so many vulnerabilities that Barack Hussein Obama has, and without attempting to emphasize them, any Republican put up would be ground down in defeat. Santorum and Newt Gingrich have both compelled Mitt to at least acknowledge these vulnerabilities exist, and have given him some of the tools and rhetoric needed to exploit the weaknesses of the incumbent.

Now, what I want to know, is Mitt going to take the fight TO Obama, exposing his failures and demonstrated incompetence, or is he just going to pre-emptively surrender point after point, until the perception is left that Mitt is truly no different from Obama?

Rubio, go back to your parents’ homeland...Cuba.

I am sure the Castro brothers can use you.

He is a freshman US Senator. What has he accomplished to make his opinion significant? The country has already been harmed greatly for promoting another freshman US Senator above his pay grade in 2008.

Perhaps we should insist politicians demonstrate real statesmanship and accomplish something meaningful, as well as be tested by fire, before elevating their status.

When this faux conservative Rubio runs again, I will support his primary challenger.

Time for a new edition of the Grim FReeper (Elio Gonzalez) picture: Marco and Mitt should be hugging in that closet.

Rubio sure did backstab the tea party!

And to think Rubio was elected as a Tea Party candidate.

I’m really ashamed of having voted for him. I didn’t realize at the time, of course, that his campaign had received money from Romney and I also didn’t know about his Mormon background.

I thought he was a regular conservative American of Cuban heritage. Guess I was wrong. The dollar-filled hand of Romney is behind this whole campaign.

I thought he was busy with his Dream Act. Nice of him to take time out and advise us.

I don't understand what the problem is with his statement.

It's over.

Romney won.

They can take this to the convention and have a brokered convention which Romney will win.

The GOP wanted Romney as their candidate.

Romney has no chance and in hell of winning but it is his turn and that is the way the GOP picks their candidate.

It is looking more and more like time to concede the 2012 election to the incumbent. What a disaster!
