Santorum camp asking conservatives to pressure Gingrich to drop out
MSNBC ^ | March 6, 2012 | Andrew Rafferty

Posted on 03/06/2012 9:18:04 PM PST by LonelyCon

Rick Santorum's campaign is calling on conservatives to pressure Newt Gingrich to abandon his bid for the White House, a senior adviser told reporters tonight.

Senior campaign strategist John Brabender said the key for the campaign going forward will be creating an opportunity to challenge Mitt Romney one-on-one, though Brabender maintained the Santorum campaign would not directly call on Gingrich to drop out of the race.

"We're never going to call on anybody to get out, but what we are calling is on Tea Party supporters and conservatives is to rally behind the only candidate that has demonstrated over and over again that he's the one who can compete against Mitt Romney," Brabender said.

"The real key right now is, can we get an opportunity to get a one-on-one shot with Mitt Romney," he said.

Romney’s God-send is Gingrich. Gingrich is undermining the resistance.

I agree. Let it go to the convention. I am for Santorum, but Newt would be a fool to give up his bargaining power. He can push his agenda if nothing else,and he is much more fertile in good ideas than either Rick or Mitt.

Santorum supporters are delusional. He blows another big lead in Ohio (just like Michigan) and wins fewer delegates than Newt, and they say drop out!

lol

good luck with that

13,000 also voted for Perry and Huntsman in Ohio.
What ? there has been 2 wasted opportunity to finally force Mitt Romney out of the race.
Yes, it's time for Newt to wake up and realize reality.
The stubbornness and pride of Newt and his supporters will ensure us a Romney GOP nomination.

Let’s face it.
We’re down to political dregs here. None of them are pure.
I believe Newt is the only one that is politically savvy enough to clean out the current crop of vermin, and I am not so sure about him.

“It’s time. Newt needs to do the right thing for this country and the Conservative cause.”

Rick’s my first choice, but I also like Newt, but Newt’s leaving the race might be the only way to get Romney out of the race.

After Rick is decimated by Romneys negative ads the same folks calling for Newt to get out will be asking Newt's supporters to back Romney. I'll give those folks a hint..it aint gonna happen

ELECTIONS 2012 | MARCH 6, 2012
Romney, Virginia GOP commit election fraud: FOX News

Romney, Virginia GOP commit election fraud: FOX New
Continue reading on Examiner.com Romney, Virginia GOP commit election fraud: FOX News - Denver Conspiracy | Examiner.com http://www.examiner.com/conspiracy-in-denver/romney-virginia-gop-commit-election-fraud-fox-news#ixzz1oPJ6kwX2
Jeffrey Phelps
Denver Conspiracy Examiner

With only minutes before the first Super-Tuesday Caucuses were set to close, FOX News and the University of Virginia Center for Politics reported a likely election fraud situation, committed by Mitt Romney and the Virginia GOP.

The establishment elite may be up to their usual 2012, nomination process shenanigans again as more people in positions of knowing have come forward to proclaim their displeasure with the establishment’s handling of challenges to their favorite candidate.

Multiple states across the country reported precincts tampered with, votes permanently lost, elections oddly postponed, permanently unverifiable results, and now simply not even allowing candidates to even be on the ballot to begin with.

Reporting from Virginia, FOX News’s Shannon Breen gave voice to political analyst, Virginia Tech’s Larry Sabato, who says it is very likely Mitt Romney and the Virginia GOP establishment, and their minions purposely kept signatures from being counted so, at least, Newt Gingrich wouldn’t be on Virginia’s ballot on Super-Tuesday.

Advertisement

If the allegations are investigated and found to be accurate, it would represent an addition to the growing list of reports showing the establishment elite to be manipulating the nomination process country wide, in favor on Mitt Romney.

Further stealing caucuses from other candidates, mainly Ron Paul, to likely insure the continuance of a 1%’r agenda that, according to Wall Street and the lion’s share of its campaign donation money, Mitt Romney is most likely to support should he be the nominee and beat Obama in November.

Absent Gingrich, Santorum would beat Romney one-on-one. Absent Santorum, Gingrich would beat Romney one-on-one. Together, they’re giving him the nomination.

Santorum was not eligible to take delegates in several Ohio districts. He didn’t have enough signatures to qualify. Rick beat himself in Ohio, if he really lost, that is.

It’s time. Newt needs to do the right thing for this country and the Conservative cause.

It would be better if Santorum the fiscal socialist quit the race and endorsed Newt after apologizing to the people for ganging up with the liberals and plundering the country for many years. For a change, that would mean he at least did something for the conservative cause. Santorum is a socialist while Newt at least has the record of reining in the spending.

As Newt and Rick continue to battle each other for the conservative, anti-Romney vote, it’s the liberal RINO Mitt who waltzes towards the nomination, and a probable defeat in the general election.

How did we get in this mess (once again)?

I’m very sure about NEWT.

Mitt is beyond flawed - he shouldn’t even be in this race.

Yet Rick campaigned for MITT in ‘08 convincing voters he’s the man for the job.

Slick Rick is in it to take votes from Newt as he’s a mitt man.

Oh boy! It’s REALLY gonna be a bad morning for santorum this morning. I really do wish this wouldn’t have happened this way, but santorum brought this on himself. What’s worse is he will NOT blame himself because nothing is ever his fault. HE will blame Gingrich...except Gingrich wasn’t there.
“Move over, Saint Christopher. Allow the devil to ride.” That is what santorum did when he joined in bloody Thursday against Gingrich. Karma is a beach.

He’s a liability.

If Newt Gingrich is a liability to Rick Santorum, then my response is, "Thank God!"

I don't understand why Santorum is still in this. He must realize the damage he is doing by maintaining this farcical campaign.

Now, I don't really mean that, but it makes about as much sense as his backers calling for Newt Gingrich to drop out. As far as I am concerned Newt is the only one of the three who would stand a chance against Obama in the fall.

Santorum? Give me a break. He's be eaten by Obama like an hors d'ourve: one bite.
