Skip to comments.Palin on Newt: ‘I’m glad he’s staying in it’ (Sarah to Rick: "Oh, Boo-hoo!")
Posted on 03/06/2012 9:36:27 PM PST by VinL
Sarah Palin gave another not-quite-endorsement of Newt Gingrich this evening, praising his decision to stay in the primary even though he's only won his home state of Georgia today.
"I'm glad he's staying in it," Palin said of Gingrich on Fox News this evening. Asked about Rick Santorum's contention that Gingrich is dividing the conservative, anti-Romney vote, Palin dismissed the complaint. "Oh, boo-hoo," she said.
Of course they all want one another to drop out, but I don't support that idea." "At this point, it doesn't make any sense for anyone to drop out and concede that he can't be the nominee," she also said, before reiterating her position that competition is good for the Republican primary.
Oh, that’s hilarious!
Amen to that!
Palin cracks me up.
He's the candidate of big ideas and reform.
There may be a heel pick involved too.
Newt is doing so well he might as well go home.
Isn’t that the cutest little girl? :-)
He actually beat Rick in delegates.
I think Rick should withdraw immediately for the good of the party.
Sarah tells it like she sees it. I am glad that she came out and said that she voted for Newt. I have nothing against Santorum, I think he is a really good guy but Newt would destroy Obama in a debate, he would rip him to shreds
Geron- didn’t you heard him tonight? He is so angry at the GOP-e, he can spit nails. He feels that he helped build the GOP, and the ingrates have been trying to “eviscerate” him from Day One.
I agree with him- you may not. But, the point is- he’s not going anywhere. He’s going to stay in their faces as long as he can go.
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.
Mr. Third Place is the big winner huh?
You gotta win more than your home state to be the nominee.
There is only one that has a chance at beating Obama, and it won’t be easy.
“Lets cut spending and the size of government by putting school kids to work in a federal program and building a new base!! We’ll make the Sea of Tranquility an enterprise zone and send Solyndra up there”
Yeah, that’s what America wants to hear. lol.
He has. Rick has blown two big leads in important states now (Michigan, Ohio). He’s practically handing Romney the nomination.
Get out now Rick!
Rick won’t withdraw. He is so pumped up that he will explode and then and only then it might dawn on him he has been dumped.
Forget South Carolina, did you?
Hey Rick...how ‘bout some cheese to go with that whine?
Michigan was lost to early voters, they voted before Rick’s 3-state sweep.
The huge “trifecta” of non binding/uncommitted delegate caucuses?
Your headline is misleading at best. She didn’t say “Oh boo-hoo” to Santorum. She said it to the interviewer.
You’re joking, right?
Sadly, I have to inform you that Newt won’t get that White House wedding.
Santorum can;t beat Mitt let alone Obama.
Why doesn’t anyone ever ask when Ron Paul’s dropping out? /sarc
Not sure if you are a Romney guy or not but the only way Mittens can win is if his opposition splits 3 ways. Newt can stay in till the end of the month without causing too much harm and if he endorses Santorum just in time for the “Winner take all” states that will start in April we will be ok. If he gives all his delegates to Santorum we have a chance to beat Romney. I can’t even think of any other way forward to win this thing. Do you really think Newt can compete after tonight? Look anywhere outside of GA & SC.
ROFL! Yay, Sarah!!
It’s still shaking out, but it looks like Newt will win more delegates. It also looks like Rick has blown his second big lead when he had a chance to deal Romney a big blow. I’m not sure how much he was up in Ohio, but it’s being called a collapse.
He didn’t blow two big leads - Romney has been nonstop with is nasty ads - just like he did with Newt in FL. Rick held his own much better than Newt did in MI and OH. Some people are not too bright.
I love Sarah, but, find her oh boo hoo comment disturbing and childish.
You’re right. Some people aren’t too bright. Newt barely campaigned in either Michigan or Ohio, and Rick did blow leads in both states (9 pts in Mich and at least 10 in Ohio). In fact, I’d call what happened in Ohio a collapse.
In Michigan, Romney won because of the absentee vote. Either the polls were wrong, or Romney managed to get his supporters to vote absentee in large numbers.
Rick NEVER does anything good for the party..are you dreaming? Rick is and has always been about Rick. Hey did he ever get any more congressional endorsements that the handfull he's manged to scrape off the floor? Wasn't more than you could count on your hand last I saw.
Oh boo- hoo!
Our good conservative candidates do NOT need to "drop out". We need to work together!
Brokered Primary Now! = Secure Conservative Nomination for the GOP Convention
Then use the next 5 months of campaigning to determine the best Conservative Nominee.
=>>> More @ Post #55 ... on the "Brokered Primary Now!" thread.
*1. GOP Needs Brokered Primary Now! (with emphasis on Primary, Now!)
*2. Rick as temp Placekeeper Nominee;
*3. Decide Final Nominee @ Convention
So, you are just an immature little snot - huh?
I really think a brokered convention would give the nomination to Romney, or worse yet - Christie from NJ. People have lost their minds.
No, just responding to a senseless post for a writer whinning as one.
>> Not sure if you are a Romney guy or not
He’s obviously a Newt guy.
Not sure if you are an Obama guy or not but the only way Rick can win is if every woman agrees to “keep an aspirin between their knees”.
I know, not his words.
>> her oh boo hoo comment disturbing
Extremely disturbing. Makes you want to puke, doesn’t it?
that is true...
i can’t see Romney losing California and New York which could get him a sizable plurality...still short of the 1100 i reckon...he sure won’t win Tejas
I’m sure Barone could do the numbers
but he’d have to pull his and Britt’s heads out of Romney’s ass first
Newt and Rick are just killing each other (sorry Sarah honey but you did stay home...and we waited on you...bigtime)
they are vetted enough
they will all be outta money by August...maybe even Romney...good God what has he spent so far?
I wish Rick and Newt would make a deal...either way...I support Newt but can live with Rick
(Newt got our vote in TN today...)
funny how Yankees love Romney but he can’t get squat down South...nothing personal if you are one
it feels like Conservatism is a minority party and Reagan was a fluke...just great luck we won’t see again
The GOPE and FOX are formidable and rich
...unless Rick and Newt make a deal
That’s Alaskan for ‘put yer big boy pants on and
quite = quit
