It’s time for Newt to pull out, he’s just there to help Romney win.
(LOL, I’ve said that about all the others, might as well say it about Newt now)
Yes, it’s important to note that Gallup runs a five-day trailing poll. So yesterday’s poll, taken the five days before, which showed Romney still on top, is misleading. Because the poll had been fairly stable, you can infer roughly what the past two days’ data was, which suggests tahht Santorum has caught Romney.
Move over, Dukakis! Make way for Mondale!
Santorum may have enough juice to win Michigan AND Arizona - Michigan has to be #1, though, to embarass Mitt on his own turf.
I am a strong Newt supporter, but.... I need to be consistent.
When Newt was way ahead I urged Santorum to drop out... now I must do that same to Newt.
Out first priority must be to stop Romney, and to do that I now urge Newt to drop out so we can unite this party against Romney. It’s a shame that Mitt was able to demonize Newt so easily :(
This would be funny - Newt and Mitt so taken with their hatred for each other that they thought they could ignore Santorum - except that once vetted, Santorum will prove to be a shamefully weak candidate.
We are in trouble.
Not a fan of anyone running, they’re all pretty pathetic but anything is better then the scum in the White House.
Anyone but mini0bama.
Both are a good team.
[when Romney uses his superior resources to pulverize him, we could see this lead evaporate just as quickly as it was built up]
Have voters not figured the lying snake Romney out yet? Romney is going to live whoever wins, Newt or Santorm, limping into the general.
Santorum’s defeat of Romney’s severe inevitability is just great...for now. But Santorum doesn’t have the style to carry it through to victory in November. We need a real powerhouse to win. We need a brokered convention to nominate a real winner (and it’s not Jeb Bush.)
What's truly astonishing is none of these guys that I can tell (except Paul, who's rightly called a "moonbat" for other reasons) are talking about CUTTING GOVERNMENT even though we are on the precipice of this multi-trillion-dollar debt abyss.
How is this possible? We MUST have tax cuts. But they cannot be sustained without MAJOR CUTS IN GOVERNMENT starting with CUTTING ENORMOUS WASTE, USELESS CABINET DEPARTMENTS (most of them), and A LOT OF "ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS" (NOT defense, a legitimate government activity, even though our whole defense and intelligence capabilities need an overhaul because of 25 years of mismanagement since Reagan).
Santorums balanced-budget demand is of course suicide because the Leftists will use it as an excuse to raise taxes, the opposite of what needs to happen. There must be pressure to cut taxes and spending and that isnt done with a balanced budget amendment but with sound fiscal policy. A balanced budget amendment is a bad idea because it doesnt address our most critical political and economic problem: big government. It simply shifts the burden of the governments budget mismanagement problem onto the backs of the American people.
Santorum offers a balanced budget instead of less government. Thats a terrible choice. How can we not have one guy with his head screwed on straight talking about this stuff? Maybe we really are in the Final Days and God is starting to allow things accordingly.
Do you think the adoring McCain drives by Romney's mansion past midnight wearing night-vision goggles?
Actually, I think this may a good thing for Newt, Santorum is scorching romney effectively, Newt can stand by and watch the destruction take place without looking ‘negative’.
It’s the ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’ scenario. Newt can then pick the best time to surge to finish line.
My concern is that many people out there don’t follow politics or even know who Rick Santorum is yet.
The GOP-E(unfortunately) and informed Conservatives are tuned in but...
It’ll take time to get the attention of the masses.
The wheels have fallen off white Obama. Romney has no support among Conservatives and should quit now.
Seems to be a lot of excitement for Santorum here in Michigan.
Real Clear politics had Romney up by +9 on 2/2.
Santorum is a clone of W, no thanks. One big spending compassionate conservative was more then enough for me.
This is good news. I hope this becomes the unstoppable momentum we have always needed.
