I guess I can relax. I can sleep in Election Day. All of those independents and moderates will make up for me not voting for RINO.
I hope the GOP chokes on Romney. I know they will

He's suspending the campaign, not the presidential race. His daughter Bella checked out of a Pittsburgh hospital this morning and they want to be with her at home.

You've fought the good fight, Rick, and we understand.

The Tea Party/Independents need to field a presidential candidate this fall because I hope the GOP/Romneyites lose this election.

And later it will be recycled by 206 lame-ass blogs and posted as an excerpt.

Their loss is a foregone conclusion. If they had any sense (which they don’t), they’d just cancel the convention.

Will November be Baraq vs Mitty

or

Baraq vs Mitty vs Tea Party

could we have another Clintonian plurality scenario?

well... Santorum succeeded in clearing the way for Mittens *sigh*

now that his job is done, time to quit.

I hope everyone that supported Santorum is happy with the result!

If you had just gotten behind Gingrich, we could of had a REAL conservative as our nominee.

Speaking now on FNC
A trying weekend...daughter is a fighter, doing exceptionally well...looking forward to spending time with her. But it did pause us to think about our role as parents. This was a time for prayer and thought this past weekend. Karen and I sat at kitchen table talked about fears, concerns...our role was being the best possible parents for our children...We had concerns for our family with what was going on in Washington D.C. That American dream was slipping from...all Americans.
We had, as good parents, to go out and do what we could for our children

We started out almost a year ago...I told my story, our story... etc.

Newt did poorly in the South. If he couldn’t win on home turf, don’t blame Yankee Santorum.

There’s a link on Drudge now that says he called Bishop Romney to concede. Don’t know if it’s true.

If Rick has really dropped out, then I guess Romney has the nomination. Newt has been running a very distant third, and I don’t think he has a chance.

I WILL NOT VOTE FOR ROMNEY. And after this fiasco and all the dirty maneuvering by the insiders, the GOP is dead.

So, I sure hope we can agree on a conservative write-in candidate. Otherwise, our country is cooked.

I wish there was a way for Santorum to give all his delegates to Gingrich. I'm not enthralled with either Romney or Gingrich, but I'd take the latter over the former if I had a choice. We don't do primaries until next month. So I guess I'll be pulling for Gingrich (probably useless) if I have to.

In the General Election I'd vote for Lindsy Lohen if she were running against Obama. I won't sit it out but I'll hold my nose, cuss and swear and get whored out again just to defeat the incumbent.

The republicans gave us Dole, McCain and now Romney. They can’t be that stupid. That proves to me they’re in bed with the democrats. They’re all part of an elite group and they work together. We, the voters, are played for fools.

And when obama wins, they willblame us “right wing fringe tea partiers” for “staying at home”. But I believe that if we all voted for Romney obama would still win. It’s fixed and has been for a long time.

Here we go, folks - First off DO keep Bella and the entire Santorum family in your thoughts and prayers. She is a precious little girl.

Can you folks in PA PLEASE vote NEWT now? ANYONE left on the ballot besides Mittens.

We need you now more than ever. The press is ALREADY turning on Mittens from all directions.

I hope the GOP/Romneyites lose this election.

Four more years of Obama will mean game, set, and match for the USA. His Marxist policies implemented by his Czars will transform America forever.

This is the most important election of our lifetimes. We are at the crossroads between the welfare state and liberty. The welfare state will collapse eventually and bring the nation down with it.

If Obama wins, America loses.

Obama now is assured of a 2nd Term, and Romney-the-RINO is the GOP-e's way of assuring it.

RIP, America.

I started donating to Rick last summer—July, I think—when he was at less than 1% in the polls—when he wasn’t even included as one of the possibilities in some polls. I have no regrets about those contributions.

Thanks, Rick!! Thanks for stepping up!

My state primary is not for 5 more weeks. I bet Newt won’t even be on the ballot then. If I have to, I’ll hold my nose and vote for the Losertarian, Ron Paul, if that’s what it takes to send the GOP a message.

One *huge* favor Rick did for Mitt was that he took *all* of the “right-wing extremist” criticism and sniping that the Obama Mania Media could dish out. He succeeded in running interference at least up to now, and none of that mud could be thrown at Romney. Mitt owes Rick a huge “thank you.”

Suspending?

Please for once can we have a politician tell the truth. He is NOT SUSPENDING HIS CAMPAIGN. HE IS ENDING IT!

Good grief, no wonder Americans don't trust any politician. They NEVER say what they truly mean.

Please Rick, Tell the truth. Words mean things.

Hey H1 we must all get out and vote for Romney. He will be better than the fool in the Oval Office presently. Romney is a business man and America needs one to get our economy back onn track. Romney will let the generals take care of the military.
