Don’t fool yourself. The Jewish areas such as Dade County and Palm Beach may be liberal, but Florida voters are representative of the whole country. Gingrich went down in flames because he ran the campaign without a message, other than the negative ads against Romney. His speech and media bashing were excellent, as usual, but that won’t win him nomination.

I won’t be bullied by FR and will vote for the nominee, whomever that is.

Yes but they would rather blame one of our own then face the reality. We could go on for hours at how all other good conservative contenders were not good enough because of ONE.Therefore we were left with the bottom of the barrel.

Gingrich ran the only campaign that had a message, but the press was only interested in reporting on the negative ads Romney ran against him and his Super PAC reponse ads.

Gingrich consistently had thousands of people cheering at his campaign stops; Romney was lucky if he could get a couple of hundred people, and in fact the press stopped reporting his appearances live because they were so pathetic.

The imitative, think-in-the-box GOP nomenklatura watched the Democratic fix in ‘08 for Obama, and think they can imitate it. It may work - up to the moment Bishop Willard Hartpence Romney is the nominee and the media swings back to the Democrat default settings. They have already forgotten the model was only partly the fix for Obama, it was also the setup for the dupe McCain.

This was the same Big Media that kept John Edwards’ campaign viable (so as to block out Hillary’s threat to Obama by keeping her in a 3 way race for delegates) long past this timeframe in 2008 even after they knew of his bastard child.

Wait, so Hillary would've been better?

Mouse over each edition choice, you’ll see that the oldest publication date is 1952 from Crown Publishers.

So? You want a biscuit for obedience or what?

I will not vote for a man who believes he will become a god. Tower of Babel comes to mind. I won’t vote for a muslim either. Hopefully by some miracle, in Calif. Gingrich will still be running. If not, it will be the first time I have not voted since the 70’s. God Help Us.

If Santorum did leave, it would beat Romney. If Gingrich left, it might beat Romney. How did I beat Santorum up? I could. Easily. But I have been trying to show respect for people like you.

If all Santorum's votes has gone to Gingrich, (which would never happen because there is a wee difference between them on setting an example of moral behavior in their personal lives,) Romney would still have won.

Gingrich lost outright, so don't blame Santorum.

“Newt’s now given the signal for Sanatorium to bow out...prior to Florida Sanatorium said neither Newt nor Romney asked him to stand down....but Newt is doing that now...will he?”

No, he won’t.

Hi Reaganaut.....Well people didn't push to vet Romney's Organization, fronted by a religious title, so no surprise to me LDS people aren't exactly where they need to be ....and will go to any lengths, including corruption to see Romney gets this...... They've been positioning their people for 8 yrs. very similar to what Bambi did....and they're using the youth as he did.

I remember well the forboding sense I had as Obama's compaign picked up momentum....the media, the hype, the utter blindness of the people...it was so hard to watch when we all had the truth nobody cared to fully reveal and vet oBama out..... It's the exact same thing with Romney....it simply isn't going to matter to those who have willingly blinded their eyes....

Wise move for Newt to focus on March...Nevada and Utah are of course in Romney's pocket and Paul will make sure to cover him otherwise as we've seen thus far.

If Romney gets this then the Lord no doubt has determined our country will not be strong again.... so that it cannot intervene with the stage now being set in Europe and the ME....and Romney will usher this nation rapidly into the push for One World Governance, Religious Unity, and we know what the end-result that will bring.
