Gingrich says campaign 'on a shoestring,' signals he's preparing for Romney nomination
FoxNews.com ^ | April 08, 2012 | N/A

(Snip)

Though Gingrich and Romney throughout January engaged in some of the most personal attacks of the presidential primary campaign, Gingrich said Sunday that the two are at peace with one another.

"I hit him as hard as I could, he hit me as hard as he could -- turned out he had more things to hit with than I did," Gingrich said. "That's part of the business."

Gingrich said that if Romney wins 1,144 delegates and clinches the nomination, he will do "everything I can" to support him going into November.

"We are absolutely committed to defeating Barack Obama," he said. "I will work as hard for (Romney) as I would for myself."

He said he's already spoken with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus about how he can help going into November. "Beyond that ... I'll go back to a post-political career," Gingrich said.

Still, he said supporters are urging him to stay in.

"I do think there's a desire for a more idea-oriented Republican Party," Gingrich said.

Gingrich said he's seeing a "great response" in the upcoming primaries for Delaware and North Carolina, and will "see what happens" in those two states. Despite his comments Sunday, the candidate had recently told The Washington Post that "nothing" could get him out of the race quite yet.

Gingrich said he wants to campaign for changes in the party platform -- namely, to push for domestic energy production, to "stand up very firmly for religious liberty" and to reform the Social Security system.

Romney is leading the field with 660 delegates, according to the Associated Press tally. Rick Santorum is trailing with 281, followed by Gingrich with 135 and Ron Paul with 51.

Where did he split the vote and cost Newt a state?

I’m not a sir, perhaps not even a lady, but I am female.

After Pennsylvania, if Santorum doesn’t win, and it’s not looking good, he will have to bow out.

If I adored Santorum as much as I did Rick Perry, I’d be in the fight on camp, even if it looked impossible... but I don’t adore him.

It’s statiscally possible that Santorum could win but he would have to win over 70% of the remaining states. That’s not looking possible.

As for me giving up, well Texas hasn’t voted yet and I will probably vote for Santorum if he’s still in.

But right now, I’m voting Not Obama, and hope everyone else does also.

My apologies Ma’am.

I would like to see santorum stay in until the convention, to give people the option of a not Romney/not Obama. Especially with Texas. We have a real opportunity to give a shot to Romney by casting him out and supporting Santorum strongly.

You argument is pointless, since there is pretty much no chance for Santorum to win the nomination.

You can argue all day long and probably will. But reality has already taken charge of the race and there is nothing you can do about that by incessant argument, just for the sake of argument.

Therefore, I have better things to think about, than to sit here all day and answer your pointless/meaningless questions. This is not a discussion or contest to prove who is right or wrong. It is merely an admission to the current reality of where the 2012 Primary is currently at.

At what point in the primaries did you awake?

If Newt had substantial leads over all the candidates well before Rick appeared on radar, how is Newt responsible for splitting the vote?

If you recall, the indignant ones made it clear during Newt’s lead they would not support “the cheater” — instead they decided to split the vote and choose “the whiner”.

It no longer matters and there is equal blame to go around to all sides. What matters now, is how do we beat Obama, with who we have left? And it is pretty much a formality from here on out.

It’s a simple question. Yes or no. Do you believe that the federal government has the obligation to protect the unborn just as they do everyone else?

If you sincerely believe no, then say so. If yes, then say so.

“And it is pretty much a formality from here on out.”

So you’re willing to quit? Some of us are gonna keep fighting. With or without you. We’d like you on board, but if you don’t want to fight, that’s a disappointment.

No sense arguing in circles since it’s unlikely we’ll agree on the reasons that caused the fracture.

The assumption that Rick would benefit from Newt’s departure is based on weak data. Also, Newt hoped to derail Romney’s nomination by forcing a brokered convention.

If Santorum had gotten out after Florida, and sent his delegates to Newt during the primary, like a mature adult, Newt, after sparring with Romney, and exposing voters to his ideas, would be heading toward the nomination. Let’s keep a little visual acuity in our rear-view mirror pronouncements. Minimum.

I also remember PSYCHO's supportive posts of Romney the past few days, after posing as a Newt supporter for many months. Exactly who do you support for the Republican nomination, Psycho?

Newt won Georgia. He graduated from high school there. If you want to be technical..RS lives in Virginia.
Yes, no one paid any attention to Santorum and everyone knew he was never a threat. He won’t be the nominee..it was Newt they wanted to take out including the media elites.Romney’s super pacs spent millions attacking Newt in Iowa, millions attacking Newt in Fla and Newt still came in 2nd in Fla but due to sneaky tricks he didnt get any delegates.
It is not old news that Santorum endorsed Mitt 3 yrs ago..and as for the creme de la creme endorsing Newt..he has more of the true conservatives than Santorum.

I am on the same wave length as you. We are all at an awkward point in the race. We now have a choice to minimize the damage, and that means we cannot take the chance of Obama winning. We need every vote we can get. Even if the nominee is Romney, we can hold his feet to the fire better that anyone, because he has promised us the Conservative Moon for the nomination.

At least if he takes Obama out, that will give us time to move the old furniture out of the GOP, and replace it with newer, smaller and more user friendly furniture that suits our needs and not the GOPE. But if Obama wins, we have no second chance.

Again, I do not support Romney, and I never have.

And before you irrelevantly claim that because Santorum won those two, they don’t count, because you didn’t mean states that Santorum won, that Newt could’ve won, but rather you meant states Romney won that Newt could’ve won...

Don’t bother, that’s ridiculous.

If you claim the two are competing for the same votes, then any close state between those two, regardless who won the state, is a state that Santorum’s presence caused Newt to lose.

Both AL and MS were close enough between those two, if they were drawing from the same voters, Newt would’ve cleaned up like he did in SC and GA, if Santorum had not been there.

Any logical thinker knows that there are countless dynamics behind the way this Primary season turned out. Newt would have been the nominee by now, had Santorum dropped out before Iowa. Running at or below 2% the entire year while all the other nominees were still in, says a whole lot about the man.

You're exactly what I'm talking about.

Haven't you even paid attention to the thread? I don't like Santorum because he's NOT CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH for my taste, and I've been advocating that conservatives LEAVE THE GOP rather than vote for Romney - because I despise Romney the RINO that much.

Privileges and immunities clause of the Fourteenth says otherwise. The federal government determines citizenship, not the states. Extent of legal recognition of personhood is one of the primary jurisdictions of the federal government since the 14th was established..

“Any government that can outlaw abortion, can make it mandatory.”

Not so. One, the first amendment protects freedom of conscience. Two, the fourth prohibits unreasonable search and seizure. No such constitutional provisions bar outlawing abortion outright.

It’s still not votesplitting. What happened in MS and AL was voter preference.

Santorum won enough votes in both to overcome Newt, and Newt finishing second, means that conservative voters preferred Santorum to Newt.

This is why MS and AL were so important to Newt, because he needed them to have any hope of continuing on. It’s also why when he lost that his vote total has dropped off so dramatically.

Vote splitting by Santorum, would be a state where Newt finished ahead of Santorum, but Santorum prevented him from winning.

As we saw happen in Ohio, Michigan, Wyoming and Alaska, where Newt split the conservative vote permitting Romney to come up the middle.

Both AL and MS were close enough between those two, if they were drawing from the same voters, Newt would’ve cleaned up like he did in SC and GA, if Santorum had not been there.

Plus the fact, CNN exit polls showed 6000 democrats voted for him in both AL and MS, which was far beyond the margin of victory.

And then there's this:

"An honest résumé on Santorum would read: 1) I was present in congress when Newt Gingrich was successful; 2) I voted for everything I am running against now. Still, Santorum would be able to derail the Gingrich campaign… and that is what the RNC was counting on. You’re welcome Mitt!

Conservatives need to pay attention to how he stayed in until now… once again, they will get what they deserve for supporting a candidate willing to use such underhanded tactics in the race.

But in Tennessee, they tried a different underhanded tactic and succeeded… Hours before the election, Santorum met with several state delegates declared on the ballot for Gingrich, one even the Co-Chair of the Gingrich campaign, convincing them to switch to Santorum delegates even though the state ballots declared them all for Gingrich.

It amounted to election fraud, as millions of Tennessee Gingrich supporters cast vote after vote for Gingrich delegates that had quietly switched to Santorum hours before the election. The old backroom switcheroo had worked and Santorum won Tennessee, snatching the number two spot in the GOP race from Gingrich for the first time.

As I write this morning, Santorum demonstrates just how far out of check his ego really is by suggesting that he would consider Newt Gingrich for his running mate. As we used to say in my old football days, Santorum can’t carry Newt’s jock strap… He isn’t qualified for more than Newt’s water boy!"

The rest is already written…One need only understand that united defeats divided every single time.

http://www.intellectualconservative.com/2012/03/09/gop-defeating-itself-again/

The article has some good sound numbers on just how effectively the establishment succeeded in dividing the conservative vote, the same as 2008, allowing romney to slip in - the way huck did for mccain.

The GOP is afraid of Newt's baggage. The evangelicals won't forgive him - after all, they have a saint to rally round. Those are the only two reasons Newt isn't winning. And those aren't reasons enough to give up... or give in.

Even after winning Iowa...understandable because it was a caucus state, and he and his family virtually lived there for two years... it would still be Newt if Santorum had dropped out and endorsed him and conservatives had rallied around him as the anti Romney, telling Mitt to take his lying ad millions and shove it.

JCB asked, just name even one state Santorum caused Newt to lose.

So I named two.

It won’t wash to say, oh, I meant name a state Santorum caused Newt to lose to ROMNEY.

But the big picture is so clear, and is what Santorum diehards won’t admit, which is that Newt had the best qualified candidacy against Mitt, but he wasn’t deemed personally perfect enough therefore they jumped to the deemed-more-perfect Santorum, thus damning Newt’s candidacy.

Now neither one of them can get there.

LOL! That's true, but I pretty much flicked that flea a few posts back. I am sure we are seeing another retread, by the SU date. They are easy to spot by the way they get around this forum like they have been here for years.

The thing I am determined to focus on now, is beating Obama any way possible. Then we can sort out the details with whom ever is charged with that task. If that nominee is Romney, then we literally camp out on his doorstep and force him to make all of his promises to govern like a Conservative, a reality.

Then, we work feverishly the next 4 years, replacing the GOPE. But the first task, is to STOP THE BLEEDING! (Or the patient will die.)

Are you speakin of the Dr. Dobson, who said that Newt can't be allowed to win because we can't have an adultress as a first lady? That Dr. Dobson...

He needs to resign. If Callista Gingrich is still to be considered an adultress, based on past behavior and sins, which he has repented of, and which there is no evidence of in her present life, then Karen Santorum is still a whore fornicating with an abortionist outside the vows of marriage. You can't have it both ways.

This is the Sanctimonium Standard that bewitched the evangelicals - they think they have a principled christian man because he judges everyone else's sin and seems to be sin free. If that is his standard, that Newt's wife is still an adultress, and should be called on, then Karen is still as bad or worse. That's their standard, let them live and die by it, and they will, because we are all sinners and have come short of the glory of God.
