Is Newt working with Rubio on the Dream act?

Narcissism.

If you’re honest and can recognize reality you would’ve seen that Romney was going to be the nominee months ago. Its just how it is no matter who you may have supported more.

Time to get over it and either find something to like about Mitt and get behind his nomination or just vote for him as a total anti-Obama vote.

Turn the focus to Obama and democrats, where it should’ve been months ago and every single day from now on.

I think it’s important that supporters of Newt continue to donate to his campaign, even though it looks like right now it’s floundering. I want him to stay in this thing to the end. If he wins the nomination, I will consider it a heaven-sent thing. If he doesn’t, I still think staying in gave him a good platform to get his messages out and hopefully affect future policy should a not-Zero win the election.

You are exactly right.

Newt exits and not only does Santorum/Paul hand the nomination to Romney, but also an etch a scetch platform.

Newt stays in, he has a chance to win and at the very least a good chance to get his bold conservative platform out there for the nominee to run on. That's better than nothing.

At this point, his campaign is more or less a series of unannounced speeches inside various Starbucks that he drives to in a Zip Car.

I imagine the campaign can continue indefinitely at this rate.

I know him and he is about the country’s welfare. He details solutions—not slogans, like, “I Believe.”. Whoopee. I believe too. I believe America needs a really smart leader and one who has thought through policies that can preserve our Republic. Newt has been been assassinated by the media, the Dems and Romney’s millions and that should concern every American. Obama is smiling because he orchestrated the selection of the Republican Nominee. At least Newt is pulling Romney to the right. Just pray he stays there.

Yep, it will be better than nothing. And maybe, just maybe, he gets a secretary position out of it.

Dignity and grace to you means helping the LIARS?

He already did help AMERICA by running. Republicans proved they are just as dumb as liberals. They don’t want him, they don’t want AMERICA restored. As simple as that.

“Many of the coming primaries are winner-take-all. That means in close elections Gingrich is handing delegates to Romney.”

Actually, per the polls, most Gingrich voters would go to Romney.

Not the polls I've seen, nor does that comport with the primaries Santorum won in which Gingrich did not participate.

Then apparently you haven’t looked at any polls.

At best, Romney gets 40%, while Santorum gets 39%.

At worst, Romney gets 47%.

I think that says a lot about what a loser and a snoozer he is.

America is the loser without Newt. Voters are giving America over to be totally destroyed and that includes you. Pitiful.

I was talking about Romney, I think, being the worst possible candidate.

Even if he getting 6% it is probably better for Newt to stay in.

HE has a liberal record and money to advertise against the conservative. He can't advertise what he did to MA. The GOP E is rotten to the core.

Then apparently you haven’t looked at any polls.

Any polls? Equine feces.

Try Fox News March 10 poll. With Gingrich out, Romney goes from +6 to +4 over Santorum. Santorum gains.

Support for Romney is up 5 percentage points since last month’s Fox poll, while Santorum is up 9 points. Gingrich has dropped by 9 points.

[Snip]

If Gingrich were out of the race, his backers mainly say they would go to Santorum, yet the shape of the race would look about the same with Romney maintaining a narrow 4-percentage point edge over Santorum: 43-39 percent.

[Snip]

Majorities of Republicans have a favorable opinion of Santorum (61 percent) and Romney (60 percent), while more have a negative than a positive view of Gingrich and Paul. Source

And that's a pro-Romney Fox News.

Try that kind of unsupported blandishment with me and you will get the same thing, sourced data, every time. I'm pinging Lazlo because I'm sure he has more data for your consideration.

That POS? I HATE EVIL!!

Turn the focus to Obama and democrats, where it should’ve been months ago and every single day from now on.

And that is what NEWT has been doing all along while EVIL MITT has been attacking Newt with LIES. That's what EVIL does - LIE! So your focus has not been on NEWT; otherwise, you would know this!

Willard has no idea what the Chicago Democrats in the White House have in store for him.

I do they are the same thugs who stole the election for Bill Brady...

How does every conservative candidate in the suburbs win big including tea party patriot Joe Walsh!!! Kirk won big, yet Quinn won?

I have video footage of union thugs that I had arrested here in Orland Park. But if you remember election night, Brady was leading all night till they "found" votes in the city.

And Bill Brady spent much of his time campaigning in the suburbs because he was a lock south of I-80. It sickens me because that one election changed me into the 3rd District which is Saudi Arabia West.

Dan Lipinski is now my Congressman, he voted against Obamacare but he did it because the rats had enough votes and since his District was overwhelmingly Catholic (before it became an Arab Paradise) he voted NO to Obamacare.

At the end of the day, a RAT is a RAT!!!

Yes, and they were able to lie with impunity because they had so much more money than the Republicans and the media would never call them on their lies.

I saw a mail piece from the Democrats with a 25 year old woman and a 60 year old woman on it. The 25 year old woman says, “a mammogram saved my mother’s life”

And on the inside she says, “If Bill Brady were Governor my mother would be dead now.”

They’re going to lie just as much in the Presidential race, and the national media won’t call them on it.

This is all such folly. First of all.....who will actually vote for Romney if he is the Nom? Major voting blocks will avoid him. Obama is in for another 4, most assuredly.

Seeing him as the anti-Obama vote is just an excuse, not a reason, to vote for him. In the end, you're still voting for a liberal.

Going back to 1988, we've had nothing but moderate/liberal Republican nominees who are there because it's "their turn" or because they have the most money, or both, and their accomplishments since 1988 consist of expanding the size, cost, and power of the government, losing to Democrats, or opening up the way for their successors to lose to Democrats.

Mitt Romney would be a fine addition to that 24 year collection of liberal Republicans, but he'll be doing it without my vote. I'm done voting for liberal Republicans simply because they got the nomination.

And those who support homosexuals, gun control, and the murder of infants will be welcoming your support should you vote for Romney. Rommney has a tradition of appointing incredibly liberal judges the one time he's actually won an election, and the libs are drooling over the thought.

Using your example that’s 25 years of history.
Might be time to recognize reality and not stomp away in frustration. Even Rush said any of the Repub nominees are better then the current Illinois refuge President. It’s true no matter how much you may have preferred one over the other.

Besides, its more important to do what you can to vote decent conservatives at the local level. From that base maybe a decent Presidential nominee will appear!

Oh I'll vote for Republicans if they are the most Conservative candidate available, but I'm not going to vote for Republicans simply because they are Republicans.

Because voting for Republicans simply because they are Republicans has left us in really bad shape. They haven't slowed down our progress towards socialism, they have only increased the size, power, and expense of government, and they manage to lose to Democrats or turn the White House over to Democrats far too often.

Nope. I'm done voting for liberals with (R) next to their name just because the GOP tells me to. And I'm in damn good company:

The answer is "neither".

Saying Romney is more conservative than Obama is like saying it's better to drown in 20 feet of water rather than 30 feet of water.
