Gingrich made Romney’s nomination far more easy by continuing to go on rather than concede and help Santorum with a clear majority keep going.
“I just cant believe only a small number of patiots on Free Republic think Romney is a disasterous candidate while the other lap up his ever word like he is their pet or something. It is rather repulsive.”
I don’t view him as a pet, but on the other hand, I really have learned better with time not to “like” political candidates, as nice as they may seem, they all have their share of dirt on them, get them in, get them out. That’s all I can say here. Romney isn’t great, but then again, none of his contenders were all that great either. A shame Jindal or West wasn’t up there, because either of them would get a vote from me if they were an option.
It was Santorum's plan to split the conservative vote and then quit after South Carolina or Florida. The only reason he stayed on was that Ron Paul continued to stay on and his plans were upset.
You clearly do not understand politics if you think that Santorum is not part of the Karl Rove group. This group really panicked when it seemed that Herman Cain would win the nomination and the presidency. That is why they went after him. The Karl Rove group would rather have one of their Democrat friends as President than someone who is a fiscal conservative.
