Good morning.

Haven’t seen this addressed, so here goes.

Remember when they all accused Newt of helping Romney against Santorum, by remaining a candidate?

What would they say about that NOW.

Crickets chirping??

Thinking that the next time they come around to bash Newt for still being in, for a “hopeless cause”, hold them to account for claiming, for months, that he was only there to help Romney against Santorum.

But Santorum suspended his campaign.

Also in MO, Romney is cleaning up in delegates although it was Santorum that won the vote. Which Newt had nothing to do with, because he didn’t even compete there. This shows why Newt skipped MO...the Establishment fix was in there, and he knew it.

Which shows Santorum’s problems as well as the worst primary system on record.

Talk about a failed accusation against Newt for persisting...now they are reduced to simply - it’s a “hopeless cause”.

.................. "I’ll admit it. Even I – the steel spined squab of steadfastness was wondering if the meeting with Romney and the softening of Newt’s tone meant he was aiming for a cabinet job. After hearing the private discussions of those that attended, I’m fully persuaded the Georgia General is being absolutely as crafty as George in the 1776 Delaware jungle was. It’s a guerilla war by conservatives against RINO’s. Real conservatives who actually BELIEVE we shouldn’t give up on our principles (again) and despite the odds aren’t quitting.

Real conservatives who don’t just pay lip service to the idea of pledging our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to ensure a BETTER hope than the change the RINO congress presented, then caved on. (Remember the $100 Billion in Boehner budget cuts after the 2010 Tea Party election?).

Sorry. Two years after the height of the Tea Party influence, the RINO’s and complicit (and lazy) conservative media have come close to locking it up to compromise captivity if not outright killing it.

If we don’t coalesce around Newt Gingrich and stop Romney, Karl Rove will become the head of the GOP. Mitch McConnell will be the new Harry Reid. And the minute the media and libs scream about any conservative legislation, Mitt and his RINO mutts will compromise just like Bob Dole tried to do to Reagan.

Only this time there won’t be any Newt Gingrich’s to stop them.

And RomneyCare will not be totally repealed after screams of insensitivity by centrists.

DOMA will be too “divisive” to address.

And no one will do anything but keep trying to patch short term solutions to entitlements while the number of Americans receiving Federal handouts slips over the 50% mark.".....................

One of the things that impressed me most this weekend is that most of the people who endorsed Newt, including Gov. Perry, are in it to the end. Mostly, from what I have read, because they gave their word.

Well I think I can take a stab at filling in the crickets. I supported Santorum and I do know a lot of his supporters who think, as I do, Newt getting out would have helped Santorum. If the conservative/anti-Romney vote hadn't been split maybe Santorum wouldn't have gotten out, which may have sealed Romney's fate as the nominee. That said I know the Newt folks say the same thing about Santorum. That's all water under the bridge now though and I don't think we can gain anything by bashing either.
From where we stand now Newt is the only one with a chance, albeit a slim one at stopping Romney. Now is not the time to give up folks, don't be a sunshine patriot.
