Looks like I won’t be voting on the presidential part of the ballot. Hope we get a majority in the senate and obama has fun with full out obstructionism from the R’s.

It might be better than them working WITH Romney. Too many rino’s will let him do anything liberal, but they’d fight Obama simply because he’s obama. It may be the best course.

I said, MAY...

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

What a jackass!

Newt for press spokesman! At least for a year. That would be sweet!

California and texas have been effectively disenfranchised....another choice has been removed from them.

Thiss is the what happened to me in 2008. Thompson dropped out before i could vote for him. All that were left were RINO.

And that is Breaking News ? ? ?

He may well hang it up, but how about waiting for NEWT to announce it before starting your celebration ? !

We need a National Primary Day. The primary season is way too long, and relative few voters in small states decide whom the nominee will be before the bigger states even get a chance to have their say.

If you're not going to vote anyway at least punch the ticket for the Green Party. If they get enough votes it might cause a split in the dems. Note how angry they got at Nader after Florida 2000.

Yeah, now that he’s the only person on the floor besides Romney, he drops out. What a class act! /s /s /s /s /s

I would have enjoyed either Dick Cheney in 2008 or Newt Gingrich in 2012 to debate Barry. It would have been enjoyable to see him get an education...for the first time in his life that didn't come from a narrow-minded cohort.

If by Rational Conservatism you mean Romney then you need to study the definition of conservatism. Don't assume there is always another day to fight, how much Tyranny can America take? How many times have the rational conservative decided to give in and go home?

To everyone else, why believe these rumors when Newt himself said yesterday he was in till the end. Time will tell, but I'm betting whoever is behind this is just trying to discourage Gingrich's already flagging support.

Huh? If Newt made the ballot you will still be able to vote for him in California or Texas. Santorum's campaign has been suspended for awhile now and he still beat Newt in Pennsylvania last night.

Once candidates realize they have no chance to win they drop out. That is how it works. Why would Newt continue a campaign that he can't win? It takes money? Is he supposed to lie to donors and tell them there is a real chance? Most people will see through that and not give anymore anyway. So without money how is Newt supposed to campaign? No one was disenfranchised. If you live in California or Texas, and Newt made the ballot, you can still vote for him.

I think you are right about Romney’s own Marxist leanings getting a pass, simply because he isn’t Obama, whereas Obama would be opposed tooth and nail should we gain the numbers to do so.

I hear now that Romney is bringing in an openly quere guy as an advisor on military matters for the campaign.

Romney never bothered with going Right during the primary, so imagine the contest ahead, between him and Obama, seeing who can out-Left the other.

I live in Texas and am still annoyed at the way we were screwed around on the primary date.

I shall, however, vote for the next president of the United States.

And I don’t mean the Green Paty.

Did Newt have a chance to win and Santorum refuse to drop out even though Newt had twice as many delegates? Ah..., NO!

If Santorum is a Jackass, what does that make Newt, a Jackass to the X?

So,what of a brokered convention? Couldn't Newt pull off the nomination that way? If such a miracle happened,it would be terrific,astounding,wonderful,et cetera.
I'm trying to be realistic and I WANT 0BAMA GONE. Unless something else happens,i'm planning to hold my nose and vote.
I'm not staying home,and i'm not writing anyone in.Who knows what will happen between now and November? Let's wait and see. Meanwhile,let's do all we can to get that rat bastard out of office and send his miserable ass packing.
