Fox and the boys win. All they had to do is start ignoring him and suddenly it wasn’t fun anymore.

Question:

Why would “senior Gingrich aides” tell anyone this right now, and why would they tell his enemy FOX News??

Marvelous. Now it will be a choice between original Obama or the mormon version.

Oh you'll notice all right. You'll have 4 years to bitch about what a disappointment President Romney is. That assumes he can beat Obama which is doubtful.

The moment Newt endorses Romney is the moment I stop supporting the former Speaker in any way, shape or form.
Of course, he won’t need my help in paying off his campaign debt if he endorses Romney.

Tuesday night may be the right time to crank up the “Write In Sarah Palin” campaign.

You realize she is going to endorse, support and campaign for Romney too right? Are you going to throw Palin under the bus when she is out stumping for Willard?

At least he held out until Santorum quit running. That was the important thing...

Something tells me this isn’t going to go over too well >_>

ALso, I’m glad I did not donate to him.

The money I donated to Hermain Cain was the last money I’ll ever donate to any politician ever.

I’m keeping my funds for The Fall, something tells me bread is going to be damn expensive soon...

You'll have 4 years to bitch about what a disappointment President Romney is.

Defending a liberal Republican is worse, by far, than attacking a liberal Democrat. The conservative movement will be partly neutralized and the socialist decline will advance.

Newt on Tuesday:

“Though my campaign is as of today suspended, I will continue to keep up the fight to defeat Barack Obama, repeal Obamacare and fight for Republican and conservative values with bold ideas and initiatives. As of now, I believe the best way to do this is to endorse the frontrunner, Mi..

“M-M-M-M-i-i-i-i....

“TO HELL WITH THAT! I CAN’T AND WON’T SAY THOSE WORDS! YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN, MITT!!”

Did Newt have a chance? No. So don’t give me that noise.

If he would have pulled out when it was clear he couldn’t win, and he had thrown his support behind Santorum, the momentum may have made it possible for Santorum to beat Romney.

No Newt couldn’t do that. He was in it until the end.

Did he help the party? No. We wind up with Romney, just like many of us said we would, when we urged Newt to pull out.

He refused and said he’d run all the way to the Convention. We laughed. We knew it was over. Only Newt refused to face reality.

Now what a fine mess we have.

If he had done this a month or two ago, we’d have had a shot at Santorum instead of Romney. Gingrich was never going to win the nomination.

As I said on the other thread...Sources close to Newt Gingrich say he will end his bid for the GOP presidential nomination next week
When I see video of Newt himself saying it I'll pay attention.

Don't you believe it! - As they used to say in the old Bugs Bunny Cartoons.

I'll believe when I hear straight from the Newt's mouth. I suspect these “sources” are a lot closer to Romney that anybody.

Couldn’t your logic be switched, if Santorum had thrown his support to Newt last night’s results may have different?

For goodness’ sake, these candidates make decisions that are right for them based on the information they have at the time. Santorum did not want to endorse anyone last week. I believe it was to get the result in PA that he got last night-—even without actively campaigning he came in second. Know what? Even though I am a Newt supporter, I say, good for him. You play with the cards you’re dealt.

Please stop harping on Newt. Realistically, none of these people had a chance a year ago. Instead, look at what they’ve accomplished. The social conservative message was highlighted thanks the Rick. Energy issues are front and center thanks to Gingrich. Even whacky Paul has brought debt and the Federal reserve to the table. Without these guys Romney would have been blathering his mush speech after speech.

Ha ha.

Good ones...not.

Santorum claimed to be in it all the way, too.

He said they would have to add rooms on the WH to accommodate his large family.

He never let on that PA was going to be his waterloo.

That was a fact, unless he could overwhelm Romney enough to win that politically odd and tough state, without going deeply into debt just to try, with no guarantee of winning.

And it was fact that he could not ABIDE losing that state AGAIN, nor AFFORD to fight Romney for it.

He KNEW it.

His minions didn’t know it.

You will pretend not to know it, but I have no reason to pretend.

One more thing...he also KNEW that his delegate performance was poor, relative to his popular votes and his votes in caucus states.

Romney and Paul clean up in delegates.

Santorum WON the state of MO, but he will come away with only 7 of its 52 delegates, and ultimately even those pitiful few will support Romney.

This is just one example of many, that he had to know as this campaign unfolded.

That his minions never did understand.

And he didn’t clue them in, and he hurt Newt every second he stayed in on the power mainly of Evangelicals and radio talk show hosts.

Meanwhile, PA was a drop dead date.

He understood, even if his minions didn’t.

That’s why I played around with your “jackass” perjoritive directed at Newt, but you had Santorum in the same post and I thought, let’s reorder the words and get this RIGHT.

I agree, Chris.
No more donations to politicians.

I donated the most to Santorum..but also to Cain and Newt along the way.

What a waste(not Santorum: the rest).

I remember back in ‘08, I gave Fred Thompson $100 and he suspended his campaign the next day.

It was, until Doughty One called Newt a jackass.

For waiting til Santorum quit, to quit.

A little histoire, as Rush would say,
doesn’t hurt at times like that.

You should be happy, the old man who wasn’t young and cute like Rick...never quite saw that, but oh well...is also going out.

You and your women’s GOP group can celebrate.

America is finished. Romney will never be President. Our only hope is the Senate and keep the House. Romney is a moderate and will never have the intelligence to outwit King Obama. We will have King Obama for another four years. Our only chance is if we have the Senate and House is to impeach him. And with our Speaker cry baby, that may never happen. Goodbye America.
