"The Santorum campaign clearly believes its man can be very useful in Romney's presidential campaign. "They need to talk about how to deploy Santorum," Brabender said. "They will talk some politics. Rick knows Pennsylvania and Ohio and I'm sure there will be talk about that."

Rick ready to take one for the team.

Rick was taking ‘one for the team’ a long time ago. Too bad he couldn’t take one for America.

Unlike Newt Rick has leverage.

You do realize that Gingrich will endorse Mittens at some point. The real question is whether you’ll have the courage to come running breathlessly to tell us about it.

The sniping continues.

The sniping of conservatives by conservatives against conservatives continues on here on FR, unfazed by the looming ugliness of a Romney nomination.

It’s the same sniping that practically guaranteed that the 6.5 million non-Romney voters in the Republican Primaries (as of April 10) were easily out-voted by the 5.5 million Romney voters.

It’s both bogus and sad.

Santorum should release his votes to Newt.

Is that possible?

Something tells me Rick will come out of his meeting with Romney with his bills paid, his future in the party assured, all oiled up and ready to take one for the team once again...

Rick will probably tell Mitt the harsh truth about how the base is not embracing him. But it sounds like Rick is folding tent.

I’m cynical. So maybe Rick just wants to speed up the end of the GOP. Since he could not beat Romney no matter what he did. It is a thought.

I feel the same with Bachmann and Cain. They are left in a pile of crap and will do just enough to appease the establishment. Knowing full well the GOP is heading in the direction of a showdown in Tampa. I hope.

Most of the "conservative" "leaders" in the formerly grand old party are like the Scottish nobles who betrayed William Wallace and their country, as portrayed in the movie 'Braveheart."

Every once in awhile, when it serves their purposes, they show up on the battlefield for PR effect. But meanwhile, they're selling you out behind the scenes for money, titles, and power.

The sooner folks quit listening to them the sooner we can raise up a principled, practical alternative.

Ricky siphoned conservative votes away from Newt and will now sell them to Mitt. If Ricky was really a conservative he would throw all support to Newt and Newt would be within striking distance. We shall see what he is made of. The fact that he is taking so long to do something tells me he is negotiating for the best deal.
