Once Willard goes back to Michigan (or Massachusetts), Rick & Newt can slug it out for the nomination.
Honestly, I don’t see any of our candidates taking out Obama.
It’s a shame we can’t field a candidate that’s been in office since early 2007. And, yeah, I’m not counting Paul.
Where are the current Republican governors or senators? Too bad Perry’s campaign fizzled.
Holy mackerel. Is everyone at NRO jumping on Rick at the same time? That’s two posted here this afternoon.
I don’t bother to visit NRO any more. It’s really gotten pretty worthless. Why bother to read the rest of the article when you know exactly what they’re going to say, and the whole thing is nothing but axe grinding for some RINO insider like Romney.
News flash to Romney pimps - the press will do just that to anyone who wins the GOP nomination.
“...a Pavlovian response from the press.” At least Mona is correct in her comparison of the MSM to drooling dogs.
It seems so simple, doesn’t it?
Please pick Rick Santorum. He is the only viable choice.
If we allowed the press to decide the best presidential candidate we might as well put Obama on the ticket for both parties and be done with it.
Wait, you mean you don't want to nominate a candidate who thinks it is his job to lecture us all about the evils of contraception as President?
Because, you know, it is such an election winner of a message and all:
One of the things that I will talk about that no president has talked about before is, I think, the dangers of contraception in this country.
Oh Rick droned on and informs us all that contraception is "not okay".
Now this is not just something he said in a church somewhere. This IS Rick Santorum. He believes it is his role as a President to give the country a good lecture on contraception. And people are taking this guy seriously? Come on, there was a reason no one paid attention to him just a few months ago - he isn't electable in a general election. The only reason he is still around at all is because he was such an afterthought that no one bothered attacking him till recently.
Newt is really our only serious alternative to Romney.
“Honestly, I dont see any of our candidates taking out Obama.
Its a shame we cant field a candidate thats been in office since early 2007. And, yeah, Im not counting Paul.
Where are the current Republican governors or senators? Too bad Perrys campaign fizzled.”
I hope you are not correct but if the election is remotely close in favor of the Republican there will be Democrat court challenges up to and including the Supreme Court.
“Because he has phrased his socially conservative views in vivid terms, he is precisely the sort of candidate who will evoke a Pavlovian response from the press. Just as they were driven mad by Sarah Palin, they will be outraged by Rick Santorum.”
Assuming this is true, should that bother us?
Are we being led to believe that they will be more fair or decent to someone else?
“but because of the childish and nasty behavior of a lot of Newt supporters, Im seriously rethinking my support.”
I’ve seen childish and nasty in support of every candidate, repeatedly. Don’t let that affect your decision. There is no one running for President who does not have ugly supporters.
>>>Charen sounds like a few certain freepers.
She’s an inside the beltway, elitist, Republican establishment shill.
Wonder what her Freep name is.
Gingrich, by making his two points to John King, one of which was Obama’s support of infanticide, saved Rick’s bacon on social issues in that debate. The positive response Newt got from that and the audience’s reaction to the original question ,turned the tide. But for that, I’m not sure if Rick could have avoided an even worse disaster in his performance.
Just heard Newt’s speech to the GOP Convention in CA. He eviscerated Obama on Obama’s speech in Florida yesterday and on the Energy issue in general.
He is asking everyone who supports him to twitter or email someone and let them know about his pledge for $ 2.50 per gal. gasoline, and to make a $2.50 donation at newt.org to support him as he fights on. He also asked supporters to encourage everyone to watch his 30 minute video on the step by step process of getting Energy independence.
Don't pick, Rick!
The more I hear Newt Gingrich on Energy, the more convinced I am that he Can defeat Obama. This issue resonates with voters. Folks are facced with the reality of it every time they fill up their gas tanks. The impact of high gas prices increase the costs of food and every consumer item we use. Hard to ignore.
Newt has a remarkable plan, and if you haven’t listened to his step by step Plan for Energy independence and $2.50 per gal gasoline, I encourage you to take 30 minutes and check it out at Newt.org and decide for yourself.
So, don’t choose Santorum because he sounds like Sarah Palin. Yea, that makes sense. So is Mona for Mitt?
I’m sure Wm. F. Buckley, Jr. is shaking his head over the timid piece of crap National Review has become.
