Skip to comments.Santorum: "I'd Like Everybody To Get Out"
Posted on 03/11/2012 8:16:46 AM PDT by PSYCHO-FREEP
Rick Santorum needs about 60 percent of the remaining delegates to claim the Republican nomination. It would be an easier task, he admits, if former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich would drop out, but Santorum would not call explicitly for him to do so.
The Speaker can stay as long as he wants, Santorum said on NBCs Meet the Press this morning. Instead, a Super PAC supporting Santorum has run ads calling for Gingrich to drop out of the race. (snip for excerpt purp.)
Were in a great position now as we go forward, he said.
Of course, there would be an easy way for Santorum to really make up ground: Id like everybody to get out, he said.

Yeah, to capture the nomination for Vice-President.
It may be that the rest of Newt supporters will go Romney even though they may likely not like it, but they have no other choice left.
His 60 % is a lot more doable than newts 70%. LOL
That is an admission that you know that the way things stand, Romney is going to win it.
And he probably will to our dismay. We are chopping off our noses despite our face.
And Romney will win most of the large West Coast delegates, New York, PA, NJ, etc.
Santorum is toast, and we are stuck with Romney. But you are correct, Santorum will jump at teaming up with his fellow RINO Romney and gladly accept a VP spot.
I am sure that all three would like all the others to drop out. lol.
Well Rick could be a leader make the first move thus showing the way.
A Romney/Santorum ticket would be a sure loser.
“Santorum will jump at teaming up with his fellow RINO Romney and gladly accept a VP spot”
Yes but won’t happen because this would result in a purely northeastern ticket.
And a “Santorum/anybody” ticket would be a guaranteed loser.
I don’t think so. Santorum is not really liked, he’s just an acceptable alternative to Romney for some at the moment.
If Romney does get the nod, I expect him to pick someone who would help energize a divided base, probably an evangelical.
I think Romney would pick someone NOT for the Northeast. He’ll probably pick someone from the South or Southwest.
But I hope he doesn’t get to pick anyone, especially Santorum.
I am willing to bet that Santorum was simply responding to a question the talking sh*t-for-brains of a host asked him. Probably after he was aksed about Newt Gingrich's calls for him to get out of the race. Something along those lines.
And even if he did offer it up unsolicited, I doubt he yelled as the exclamation point leads us to believe.
Made what happen?
