I suspect he’s dropping out and not go through the embarrasement of Willard the liberal beating him in PA.
Willard started his carpetibombing lying TV ads a few weeks ago in the state. No way he has the money to counterattack.
Same thing happened to Newt. Willard is buying the nomination. He pays for his endorsements and he destroys his opposition with his own bank account. Accept the obvious and move on. Willard is the GOP’s sacrificial lamb for Obama. Santorum was part of the establishment that was in it to help Willard get the nomination. If not, he would have gotten out months ago and let Newt take on Willard one-on-one. Newt’s conservatism and ability to express himself would have won him the day. Would have won him the GOP nomination. It’s too late now. Karl Rove and his RINO gang will get their way. A Willard loss to Barry Soreto in Nov is their goal.

Look at this way..we now have an opportunity to see Miitens can do against 1 conservative in the next primary. This may be a blessing in disguise.

this whole thing was a sham by the establishment.

His daughter was sick when Rick never won one county in NH, SC, FL but stayed in,
Newt was attacked like mad by FOX, drudge, establishment and RINO Romney.

sickening and the Romneybots and talking heads will be on here telling us to unite but they will try and make out that they are now really for him but they hate obama

Funny how FOX is saying this is over and they ignore Newt AGAIN

Just watched his speech. No mention of Romney, no endorsement. Tells me no deal for VP.

I am so ticked. Fox is not mentioning Newt in the race and said “Now it is between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.” WTF????? Brit Hume wished so hard it was true on Sunday when Newt was on with him. Then Newt corrected him and said no. He is going all the way to Tampa. Fox is shameless!!!!!!!

Yeah, Fox is doing a total shut-out of mentioning Newt.

Megyn Kelly went so far as to state that Santorum said he would support the “presumptive nominee.” He did not make such a statement...he didn't mention who he would now support.

He did not endorse anyone. I understand he called Romney and conceded to him before he talked today. “But we are not done fighting. We will continue to fight for the Americans who gave us air under our wings.”

I also am looking for a NEW Political party...

I've always stated that Rick Santorum is a nice guy...nice guys don't win or lead..

can't stand Mitt but passionately despise Obama so I'll vote for whom ever is the candidate and I just feel there will be a third party person...so what ever...

Obama will destroy America and my generation will never see it return to the America we all knew and loved...

“Now it is between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. “

Now it is between an Undocumented fraud, and the Federal Hillarys thieves.

I was a Democrat but the party moved left to Socialism. I am now a Republican but they are now the old Democrats so it looks like I’m changing over to Independent. Romney is no better than Obama and I feel that both parties have sold the American People out to a Socialist government.

“Rick Santorum worked his heart out and without much money. He did all he could against the Romney machine.”

If Newt had not been buried in negative ads in Iowa and Florida, Santorum would have been out long ago. All Santorum did was pull the evangelicals away from Newt and make it easier for Romney, by splitting the conservative vote.

Ed Rollins reporting on FAUX News that Romney was getting ready to give Rick the Gingrich treatment in Pennsylvania and to the tune of 9 million dollars.

It was a video that could not be disputed for its voracity, Rollins said, because it reminded Pennsylvania that Rick was done there and was rejected. Paraphrasing but that’s the gist.

Rollins seems to be in a snit when informed that Newt reports that he will not suspend!!!!

NEWT IS GOING TO TAMPA, FOR ALL OF US.

There are but three remote, but nevertheless real chances left for conservatives.

1. NEWT WILL NOT SUSPEND

2. CONVENTION UPSET (for ABR)

3. RICK THROWS IN FOR NEWT, NOT ROMNEY

YEP. Which is why I’m beating the ever loving sin outta this drum to flat BEG Santorum to back Newt. If you haven’t, yet’ send the Santorum campaign your bets plea NOT to cave to the “establishment” (read “RINO”) wing of the GOP. Ask Rick to throw his support to Gingrich.
