Well how strategically do you THINK Newt Gingrich will get the nomination? huh..might it involve strategically voting for Santorum in some instances? Let’s face it a “new media” strategy at convention to convince Romney delegates to support Newt on the first ballot isn’t going to do it, and if Romney gets 1100+ it’s over. So tell me, how do you propose that Gingrich wins without at least informally allying with Santorum..
I’m not even thinking about who gets the nomination. That decision, hopefully, will be made at the convention.
The MSM and Republican establishment have made it obvious they do not want the Capital’s business to change as they continue to feed on the corpse of Uncle Sam, and as Gingrich had said Washington doesn’t work and he intends to change it, they will do everything possible to prevent his nomination even to the extent of blocking him speaking out.
I do research on the candidates and compare their past performances with what they’re claiming they will do this time around if in office. So it isn’t that I ‘like’ someone; it is that I know only one candidate has ever actually changed government. We’re choosing a political executive leader here, not a preacher.
Santorum and Gingrich should both stay in the race and try to prevent Romney from getting all available delegates. They’ve already proven Romney has difficulty in getting half or more of the “hard delegates” in each primary so far. Romney’s hard delegate count in 453 vs. 624 for everyone else (uncommitted, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, etc.). See: http://www.thegreenpapers.com/P12/
I have been warned not to bring up the eligibility issue concerning one of the conservative candidates. If you want to look that up I suggest you google it.
Santorum is NOT friendly towards Gingrich and has, at times, been unnecessarily hostile to his former mentor. The idea they will join forces is ludicrous as Santorum will not agree to it.
