I never had much use for Santorum, This makes me thing I was right.
“about the role “social conservatives, tea party activists and blue collar Republicans will play in the campaign and in the Romney administration.”
TEA Party doesn’t have a leader. Rick speaks for himself. Especially if he’s plotting at a table with Mittens.
I’m guessing it won’t be newsworthy when Gingrich endorses Mittens.
I was hopeful on Rick at one time. But after looking at his voting record then it became clear that he is another one who is not what he says he is. He would actually fit in quite well with Romney in many ways.
It is time for someone one really good to jump on the 3rd party bandwagon. But they better do it in a hurry.
For any major player within the Republican Party, it would be political suicide not to endorse the nominee. Romney will be endorsed not only by Santorum, but by Newt, Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, etc., etc.
Right now Santorum is the only conservative holding any major cards left to play, weak as his hand is. I think that it is also worth noting that, even though Rick suspended his campaign two weeks ago, that he still has not endorsed Romney. There is a signal being sent.
Like it or not, Rick will be our negotiator for conservatism with Romney. Personally, I will be voting third party, but I think that we should be supportive of Rick in trying to extract a pound of flesh from Romney.
Both Rick and Newt will end up endorsing Mitt to stop Obama, and I don’t blame them for that.
Too bad we don’t have a conservative nominee, though, and it’s as frustrating as heck that we don’t.
Oh as if this surprises anyone! Smooth rollin Rick...trying to "look" significant as usual. Just playing his usual GOP roll they give him to play. It's all good for Ricky now...the heats off and he comes out smelling like a new born baby.
The GOP makes me sick! and Santorum's one of them of course...and known as this to the informed.
