At this point, it would be throwing good money after bad...
Guess it depends on if Adelson is ready to give up for Romney and his buddy Trump to rollover Santorum without Newt to distract his attacks between the two of them and to block Romney from 1144.
Well, that’ll be the end of conservatism for this cycle (and many more to come), since we’ll be stuck with two establishment schlubs who are simply variants of the RINO strain.
Here’s hoping Newt runs third party.
Newsies were speculating before the results from last evening that, if Gingrich did not win at least one, he would be forced out, even with his vowing to continue on.
This is part of that pressure.
Behind the scenes, probably other pressure is being asserted various persons, groups, and organizations.
Having only 2 wins out of 25 states, it is over for Gingrich, whether he wants to admit it or not. If he can’t win more than that in primaries, chances are he couldn’t win much more than that in the general, if he did get the nomination.
A contested convention, this way comes.
** President Newt Gingrich-”Our beloved republic deserves nothing less.”
Adelson makes me sick. He must be a truly vile human being if he thinks he can control the election with his money.
He forgets about something called THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.
Beckel just said on The Five that he knew “for a fact that ‘they’ went to Adelson and asked him to stop giving Newt any more money”.
Gettin’ dirty in the drive to eliminate Newt, folks. He scares the status quo way too much.
He’d be great for the republic.
I do not see electing the BEST candidate as throwing good money after bad! If Adelson is the FRIEND he claims he is AND he believs that Newt will do what he says he will do then WHY is he playing dangerous games with the money?? He has said he could give him 100 million! Then give him WHAT he needs to WIN!! This is a 68 year old man that has been working literally 14-15 hour days at this campaign! He cannot do it without competing with Romneys money! Adelson MUST know this...so why withhold the money at crucial times that causes LOSSES?? IF it becomes CLEAR that Romney is not going to win...the Republicans WILL get behind him...they will have NO CHOICE now.. it is too late for a third candidate! But it is NOT too late for NEWT to win..if he started winning every state and he could with the millions Adelson could give him!!
