"Hey, Toby and Sam!"
“Romney is a disgrace. Sheer disgust should prevent any reasonably thoughtful conservative from ever voting for him.”
Why be gracious to a bushwhacker? He’d have demeaned himself had he done so.
I have never been a Santorum supporter, but I see no reason for him to say anything about Romney. There is no reason to.
Romney is a slick snakeoil salesman that is buying his way to the WH. He can stand next to obama and I would not be able to tell the difference. They are both arrogant, condescending idiots that think all Americans are morons that will get on our knees and beg for what they are selling. obama needs to go, and by the grace of God romney will not get the nom.
I still hold hope that Newt will come out swinging. Go Newt!
I’m sorry — you are upset that Rick Santorum didn’t mention Mitt Romney, but you are voting for the guy who refused to even call Mitt Romney to concede when he lost to him....
So, why are you upset with Rick for not mentioning Romney?
I know what you mean. We have entered the era of bad feelings.
Ah, that’s it — the delusion of a true Newt Supporter.
EXACTLY! I hate these guys, Rove and the rest who think if they say it loud and often it will be.
Newt's not my first choice but he can get us to the convention.
Don't let them "deem" the race over, it's not.
Yet Santorum appears to have asked Romney to help him with his campaign debt.
I have spewed no hate. I have accurately described you and your delusions.
I think it is refreshing not to see a man give in to the “oh let's all just get along and be friends” mentality that exists in politics today. There is no reason a resignation speech should have to become a pep rally for a man you think is wrong for America.
“Newt won his home state.”
LOL. He’s won nothing else. Finished dead last in 5 of 10 Super Tuesday states.
Smell the coffee. It’s been over for Newt for at least a month. Period.
And that’s not hate. It’s cold hard fact.
Won his home state. For sure. Admission contrary to interest.
Romney congratulates Santorum for suspending his campaign. Romney then goes on to say that this has been a good day. And you expect that Santorum is going to go all smoochie over Mitt and throw his delegates to him. LOL
I hope Romney has enjoyed his vicious campaign tactics and that he is feeling all warm and fuzzy right now. All glory is fleeting and he is going to find out the hard way what that means.
He will soon be running against someone just like him. Where’s the popcorn?
Rick’s polling numbers in PA were falling. Can you imagine how bad it looks if he lost his own state? It simply means the people who know him best do not like him.
Newt won his state of Georgia, Mitt won MI & MA. If Rick lost PA, that wipes him out for good politically. So he was smart to quit before the final nails in the coffin were struck. He will now endorse the front runner in due time to secure a position in the admin.
The day before he quit, I had remarked to my wife that Ricky had all the stage presence of a guy running for town council in a very small town. BUTT even that apparently was an overreach and an insult to Town Council’s everywhere.
“Sheer disgust should prevent any reasonably thoughtful conservative from ever voting for him.”
Amen! As much as I dislike and am utterly repulsed by “the Socialist/Marxist dimwit in charge, I despise his arrogant, narcissistic and condescending, self important manner.
Come to think about it...McLame, Goober Gramnesty and Luggy Lugar from my home state of Indiana provide me a reasonable, thoughtful reason not to vote! Romney...gets drilled by 10 points Loser!
The Republican establishment bought and brought this on, now they own it!
Oh, the excitement is so riveting! paaaleeez!
If Newt had stuck in out in the house even resigning as Speaker but keeping his house seat he would be the likely nominee now. Newt quit. Newt goes away a decade and comes back expecting to magically waltz into The White House? Newt has a major trust issue. His message is good but his enemy is His Own Actions.. That cost him the primary that and that alone. If he had wanted POTUS so bad then why did he not run for and hold another office to show Conservatives he could be relied upon?
Yes, but the truth is that it’s more than that. He knew that he was not going to be the nominee in any event. Winning PA would not do it. Losing PA would mean not only that he would not be the nominee, but also that his career would be over in toto. There was no sense in fighting Gettysburg and risking total annihilation when he knew he was going to lose this war in the end in any event.
Re-reading your response, I guess that’s actually what you were saying.
