“Drudge is sure not giving Newt credit..that picture is awful!”

Drudge has done everything possible to put down Newt and promote Romney.

Along with many other major players in the “conservative” media.

He went after Newt in the last debate like a hungry shark.

He was / is desperate. No traction. Even this speech - he sounds unfocussed.

If he does, I’d like to point out, “hey Rick, we’re just as heavily armed here in EASTERN PA as you are out there!”

(maybe more so since Philly is a constant danger over here)

Thanks for the FL closed primary info. I would tend to think then that it won’t so much hurt Newt as if they were open. My thinking is that MOST of the libs on FL’s East Coast aren’t registered as R’s. So I’m happy they can’t vote in the R primary. I absolutely loathe cross-over voters, including the R’s who crossed over to vote for Hillary! in ‘08.

” Santorum has very little money and he will have even less after SC. He may not want to get out, but I suspect that he’ll have no option. “ <<<<

Yawn....Santorum is on...

Eric Erickson a@ Redstate believes Romney backers will be promoting Santorubachmannhuckaby in order to slow Newt down in Florida. If this proves accurate, the RINO wing will use Santorum at least for awhile in Florida against Newt.

I just don’t know if Newt can be knocked out in Florida. The base will catch the wave and be in full REBELLION after seeing the dread and hatred for Newt is now palpable, and that his enemies are proving to be the same as ours.

Santorum is cash poor compared to Mitt and Newt so how much can he do. Iowa was prime time for him because he met people and shook hands everywhere in every county.. Meanwhile only Newt and Mitt have the $$$ to air the radio and TV advertisements

You don't have the charisma, you don't have the stamina, you don't have the right sound bites.. you need to go!!!

Perry was superior to you and he knew the odds were against him, and he did the right thing, as saddened as I am about it, he knew we have to beat MITT!!!!!

You can forever be known as the conservative spoiler, or you can get out now!!!

Newt all the way~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“The base is revolting because they swept the GOP back into relevance in Washington just under two years ago and they have been thanked with contempt ever since.

Adding insult to injury, the party and thought leaders now try to foist on the base a milquetoast moderate from Massachusetts...

...Basically, today’s vote is about Republican grassroots giving the Washington Republican establishment the finger. The base is angry, and right now, only Newt is left to fight for them, as imperfect as he is.”
