Newt Gingrich to officially end bid for Republican presidential nomination and back Mitt Romney, sources tell CNN.

That's what happened to Santorum as well. He could not raise enough money to keep things going.
You just agreed with point 8. You didn’t dispute it at all.
And if somehow Mitt does win, there goes any chance to nominate a Conservative in 2016.
Exactly. And Mitt as CinC will be a kick in the crotch to what’s left of the Tea Party.
Yeah, I was going to vote for Jesus, but then I realized he wasn’t “Natural Born,” so there went my third party candidate...
Andrew Breitbart has me rethinking my position:
If Gerald Ford won in 76, would we have gotten Reagan?
Santorum was 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.
The money has dried up. After last night, who is left to donate? It is clear there is no path for Newt to the nomination or some brokered/contested convention. His talk about keeping it close or winning Delaware turned out to be a complete embarrassment since he lost by almost 30 points. Even most die-hards were not going to give anymore to what is obviously a pointless effort. Gingrich is simply out of money and will use the next week to make nice with Willard and hopefully get some help paying down his debt.
If he couldn’t get it, Santorum couldn’t either.
I was planning the same thing... Not voting for Romney under any circumstances. However, this all changed when the SC took up Obamacare.
If Barack gets more liberal justices on the court, it is GAME OVER.
A Marxist rubber stamp is not as dangerous as a Marxist lame duck.
Let’s ID the players here.
Marxist rubber stamp = Mitt.
Marxist lame duck = Obama.
I have - am - and will continue to argue that Mitt will be more dangerous than Obama.
Lets put this another way....
A Marxist rubber stamp is MORE dangerous THAN a Marxist lame duck.
What’s the difference between RomneyCare and ObamaCare?
I voted in the PA primary yesterday. Rick and Newt were still on the ballot. I voted for Newt.
Rick would have gotten my vote if other states hadn’t already eliminated him.
Then it is congress’s duty to impeach him or the whole bunch should be thrown out in their collective asses.
The doom and gloom rhetoric is getting old. No one is disputing Obama is intent on doing serious harm, but the martial law arguments are just silly.
Here in Missouri, Gingrich wasn’t on the ballot, but Santorum was. Santorum OVERWHELMINGLY beat Romney!
Had Gingrich dropped out back then, I have no doubts Santorum would have beaten Romney and become the Presidential nominee. But, noooo, Gingrich had to be the millstone around Santorum’s neck and hang around long enough to sink Santorum.
Oh well... Water under the bridge. It is what it is and it’s too late to change a thing.
All hail Breitbart’s challenge:
We heard all that same crap about Clinton too, back in the day...the GOP-E folks are getting real desperate.
It must be nice to live in the land of make believe.
Newt said he’d be in the race all the way to the Convention. Santorum tosses in the towel, and good old Newt follows suit in short order.
I guess I shouldn’t expect someone delusional enough to still be supporting Newt, to be smart enough to be able to see his treachery for what it was.
Couldn’t see he didn’t have a prayer, but supported him anyway. BTW, hows that brokered Convention thingie looking about now?
Bwa ha ha ha ha ha, bwa ha ha ha ha ha...
