That's a significant speculation on your part, and not a smart way to woo Santorum voters to Newt.
That being said, I'll vote for Newt in the PA primary because he is the closest to my beliefs, and unless Newt goes the distance to the convention, the November election is going to suck.
Personally, I think Rmoney winning is a terribly bad thing. Right now, the US is a pressure cooker with all the valves blocked, and something has to give. Putting Rmoney will just lower the pressure.
We are at a terrible impasse, with two groups that are diametrically opposed to each other: those that want to take, and those that don't want to be taken. There is no compromise between these two positions. The left realizes to accomplish their goals, they need
fundamental change revolution. When are we going to realize that to get to our goals, we need the same?
Many think that if 0 wins, that is the end. But if Rmoney wins, then we are stuck with him for 8 years. We will continue the slow slide to European socialism/communism. Enough. I would rather have the current jerk screw up the system and crack the pressure cooker than be slow-cooked for another 4 to 8 years.
Kosciusko51: That's a significant speculation on your part
That's all anyone has. I listened to Santorum's 14.25-minute speech yesterday. Not a single reason given for getting out of the race where he was a significant second-place runner and the certain front-runner if Romney demonstrates any fatal flaws in the next three months. His campaign is not seriously in debt, we are told. Rasmussen polls had him ahead in PA.
What did he talk about for fourteen and a quarter minutes? Family, the sweater vest craze, family, a cute video his fans cobbled together, family, some kind of plant, family, parents, children, family, parents, children, his wonderful supporters, family, and "continuing the fight" which is what they all say when they stop the fighting.
LibsRJerks offered the most plausible and innocuous speculation. I'm saving my collection of theories until such time as Santorum publicly endorses either Romney or Gingrich. But there is no pixie dust in my eyes for politicians.
