I would expect no less of a headline from Drudge these days.

Rick has stepped into the dark side.

He needs to go away.

I aqree with Mr. Santorum.

Romney - Obama = Both ineligible
Romney - Obama = Both for ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE
Romney - Obama = Both with Soros
Romney - Obama = Both for IAG
Romney - Obama = Both lie when necessary
Romney - Obama = Both attack Gov. Palin and her children.
Romney - Obama = Both ruined the economies of what they should not have
Romney - Obama = Both pi$$ed on a Constitution when they could.

He had His run, The people have not got behind him. He can't blame this on anyone. His campaign, done His way. No one took Him out, but not enough got behind Him.
Rick, Don't go into the mud. Have the class.

One slight overstatement, and I do mean slight, and all the Newt Pelosi lovers bring out the long knives. Well if Santorum does go away, the only one left standing is Etch a sketch Romney.

It's almost comical to see the Newt crowd just gloat over this gaffe. They would rather a true liberal get the nod, than a man who has been bashed for years by the left as being too conservative. Admittedly, his conservative credentials aren't perfect, but he's the only one with a shot at derailing Romney and the Newtbots couldn't care less. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face. At least Drudge, being totally in the tank for Romney has an excuse.

Rick may be right.

If Obama stays in office the fallout from his socialistic disaster can be laid at the feet of the Democrats.

If we elect Romney, (and he continues the socialistic policies) we will own the disaster.

Etch a Sketch just hit the campaign trail for the year because you know Obama will use it , too.

their stock price rose to a high 12.50..biggest rise ever in 30 years

but I do find this funny from the guy who mentioned them:

“”Etch A Sketch stock is up? Psst, I’ll mention Mr. Potato Head next. Buy Hasbro,” he tweeted with a link to a National Journal story about the stock jump.”

Both are strong abortion advocates, both favor strong gun control, both favor radical homosexual agenda... Romney has better hair, but that’s the only difference I can come up with.

Romney IS eligible.
Romney is far less likely, than Obama, to get us all killed.
Romney is far less likely to turn our country into a tribal, “Mad Max and Thunder dome” existence.

We are on the brink folks.
This is not a game, we might not be able to undo this mess, in 4 years.

Newt was my favorite, but the only think Newt can do for us, at this point, is protect the Party Platform and help to push Romney to the right.

The Communists “own” Stalin.

Did that help the anti-Communist Russians, in any way?

I do not trust Romney to be a true Conservative.

However, I do not believe that Romney is coldblooded tyrant.

I know that Obama IS a cold blooded tyrant.

First, he didn’t explicitly say “I’d vote for Obama over Romney”. What he was doing was saying what a lot of people here have said — that Romney might not be that big a contrast to Obama.

GIven that this isn’t a policy issue, or something where if you follow his words you’ll do the wrong thing (it was meant to stop people from voting for Romney, and that is the RIGHT thing), I don’t see what the point is of making a big deal out of the statement. He’s already pointed out that he won’t vote for Obama over Romney. As others have noted, he endorsed Romney in 2008 against Huckabee and McCain, so does it make sense he would vote for Obama over Romney now?

Yes it did - eventually.

I do not trust Romney to be a true Conservative.
However, I do not believe that Romney is coldblooded tyrant.

It’s a moot point really, because Romney can’t beat Obama.

It is looking grim from that standpoint, but he is within 8% in the national average still, and yesterday I think a poll showed him tied with Obama. Not ENOUGH people have gotten behind him -- too many are still supporting Romney.

But if you don't want Romney, what choice is there?

Poll Date Sample MoE Romney  Santorum  Gingrich  Paul  Spread 
RCP Average 3/7 - 3/21 
Romney  : 36.3   
Santorum: 28.7 : - 7.6% 
Gingrich: 15.6 : -20.7% 
Paul    : 10.9 : -25.4% 
Santorum is closer to Romney than Gingrich is to Santorum. At least you can still beat Romney by adding Santorum and Gingrich together, although it is bothersome that they don't add up to 50%.

I do think Rick has gotten somewhat desperate lately, launching the Bain attack, this comment, bringing up the dog incident -- just like Gingrich got desparate in Florida.

Who knows how this would have played out if one or the other of them had been able to stay on-message?

Obama can beat himself.
I think Obama is doing a good job of beating himself.
Romney will simply be the last guy standing.

Right on target!

Too many people out there lack any grasp of reality. To make the statement that Romney=Obama is to place oneself so far out of reality that I expect to hear Rod Serling's voice at any second.

If you can't see any other difference, the prime fact is that Obama HATES America and wishes to destroy us and everything this nation represents--Romney loves this country and wants to save it from Obama's destruction.

Romney was never my choice, not my preference, but he was always preferred over McCain back in 2008 and he is far, far, far better than the Obama alternative.

I wanted Newt, but I will support Romney. Better him than Saint-orum's big-government conservatism and certainly better Mitt than Barry Soetero.

You hardly would think of blaming your pathetic candidate for something he did to cause the uproar in the first place.

I can recall 10 different major gaffes from Santorum in the last month alone. Since he suddenly became a front runner in the last 2 months, it is quite obvious that he seriously lacks the ability to be a great leader. His entire candidacy is a complete joke, and his followers keep on having to explain what he “really meant”, or what he was “actually saying”.

Santotum is in WAY over his head, as are his ignorant supporters. And this is why we are losing. All blame belongs to the source, (Santorum himself) not the press, or the Newt supporters.

Hey Morrisey! Bite me!

Who listens to you anyways?

Santorum is absolutely correct.

Romney in the WH will solidify the GOP-E.

Obama in the WH means we take the Senate and add to the House and importantly we destroy the ‘E’ in GOP-E and replace it with ‘TP’ to achieve GOP-TP.

It is more important to clean out our betrayers, our Benedict Arnolds, our democrat infiltrators FIRST and then move against the demonrats. And not to worry about Obullsh*t, he will be neutered with GOP-TP control of Congress.
