I’ve seen 3 freepers who I have hardly seen in one minute post unite behind Romney lets beat obama

The Romney bots have been waiting for some time to get on here and tell us to unite and they will use the usual crap of us hating obama and we have to unite to beat him.

All of his paid staffers will be here soon you watch

I wish Newt and Rick would mount a campaign for a convention upset of both Romney and the RINO machine.

IF Romney gets the 1144, both will have to support him, but between now and then, these two are our last hope to send the bomb right back to the GOPE that they sent us in their Romney support.

The convention remains our last earthly hope for an upset.

I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t. Once the man strays outside social conservatism, he has a habit of political self serving decisions. You’re in PA, you know that as well as I do...

Me neither.

Nor can I conceive of Santorum endorsing the man who spent the better part of the last 3 months flat out lying about him.

He'd NEVER get my endorsement

Rick Santorum worked his heart out and without much money. He did all he could against the Romney machine. I think Romney was beginning to overtake him in Pa. and that would not be good for Rick’s future politically if he lost there.

This is no longer a Political Battle..It is a Spiritual Battle agaisnt the dark forces that are ruling our planet...

Ephesians 6:12

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Only 1 Can *Save Us*

2 Chronicles 7:14
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

I suspect he’s dropping out and not go through the embarrasement of Willard the liberal beating him in PA.
Willard started his carpetibombing lying TV ads a few weeks ago in the state. No way he has the money to counterattack.
Same thing happened to Newt. Willard is buying the nomination. He pays for his endorsements and he destroys his opposition with his own bank account. Accept the obvious and move on. Willard is the GOP’s sacrificial lamb for Obama. Santorum was part of the establishment that was in it to help Willard get the nomination. If not, he would have gotten out months ago and let Newt take on Willard one-on-one. Newt’s conservatism and ability to express himself would have won him the day. Would have won him the GOP nomination. It’s too late now. Karl Rove and his RINO gang will get their way. A Willard loss to Barry Soreto in Nov is their goal.

this whole thing was a sham by the establishment.

His daughter was sick when Rick never won one county in NH, SC, FL but stayed in,
Newt was attacked like mad by FOX, drudge, establishment and RINO Romney.

sickening and the Romneybots and talking heads will be on here telling us to unite but they will try and make out that they are now really for him but they hate obama

Funny how FOX is saying this is over and they ignore Newt AGAIN

I am so ticked. Fox is not mentioning Newt in the race and said “Now it is between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.” WTF????? Brit Hume wished so hard it was true on Sunday when Newt was on with him. Then Newt corrected him and said no. He is going all the way to Tampa. Fox is shameless!!!!!!!

Yeah, Fox is doing a total shut-out of mentioning Newt.

Megyn Kelly went so far as to state that Santorum said he would support the “presumptive nominee.” He did not make such a statement...he didn't mention who he would now support.

He did not endorse anyone. I understand he called Romney and conceded to him before he talked today. “But we are not done fighting. We will continue to fight for the Americans who gave us air under our wings.”

I also am looking for a NEW Political party...

I've always stated that Rick Santorum is a nice guy...nice guys don't win or lead..

can't stand Mitt but passionately despise Obama so I'll vote for whom ever is the candidate and I just feel there will be a third party person...so what ever...

Obama will destroy America and my generation will never see it return to the America we all knew and loved...

I was a Democrat but the party moved left to Socialism. I am now a Republican but they are now the old Democrats so it looks like I’m changing over to Independent. Romney is no better than Obama and I feel that both parties have sold the American People out to a Socialist government.

“Rick Santorum worked his heart out and without much money. He did all he could against the Romney machine.”

If Newt had not been buried in negative ads in Iowa and Florida, Santorum would have been out long ago. All Santorum did was pull the evangelicals away from Newt and make it easier for Romney, by splitting the conservative vote.

Ed Rollins reporting on FAUX News that Romney was getting ready to give Rick the Gingrich treatment in Pennsylvania and to the tune of 9 million dollars.

It was a video that could not be disputed for its voracity, Rollins said, because it reminded Pennsylvania that Rick was done there and was rejected. Paraphrasing but that’s the gist.

Rollins seems to be in a snit when informed that Newt reports that he will not suspend!!!!

NEWT IS GOING TO TAMPA, FOR ALL OF US.

There are but three remote, but nevertheless real chances left for conservatives.

1. NEWT WILL NOT SUSPEND

2. CONVENTION UPSET (for ABR)

3. RICK THROWS IN FOR NEWT, NOT ROMNEY

A couple points:
1) Whatever I have thought of Romney, I have never and do not now believe that he despises his country and it’s founding and is actively trying to destroy it.
2) One constant I have seen in Romney’s past is that he wants to do and be what he must in order to win. At this juncture, thankfully for us, what will win now is conservatism. If Romney has to be the most conservative ever to win, that he will be. I’d look for him also to pick a strident conservative for VP.
3) Finally, remember that God Himself used a jackass donkey for His purposes and spoke through him. If you think he can’t use MR, think again.

Fox News is full of Newt bashers and Romney groupies. Coulter, Imus, Krauthammer, Rove all want Romney. Remember when Krauthammer said Newt would never poll above single digits? and Newt was soaring in Iowa until the super pac, media smears and Fox went all out for Romney. On the positive side the "BEST OF THE BEST" endorsed and/or voted for the Speaker from Art Laffer, Thomas Sowell, Michael Reagan, Sara Palin to Chuck Norris, JC Watts, Gov Perry, Ollie North, etc.

can’t stand that airhead Mgyn Kellty, she is hte reason why Sally Kohn or Kohn got a job at FOX, she was the one who brought the Soros media matters homo activist anti American stooge on her show.

SHe is nothing but an airhead who even said after a week that Martin’s had put out a recent photo of him and that Zimmermann was the one to blame.

Not sure where she gets her news but it seems Huffpo post and the AP

I swtich over vhannels at that time when she is on and watch her for a couple of mins here and there and she is awful.

Yep you can bet FOX who have been a disgrace to Newt and the base will keep asking Newt to drop out while they still attack him and what they did to him after SC was disgusting

Yep FOX worked in their attacks on newt with the GOP, once their attacks worked they have done their best to ignore him but boy did they do a job for Rick when he never won any county in NH, then SC, then SC and his daughter was sick then and what a great job they did for their RINO

Now they try and tell us Romney has the nomination
