"Since Newt doesnt have a chance anyway, Id still consider Santorum."
If 99% of the electorate voted for Santorum and he is not running, does he get elected against his will ?
Stomp your feet, scream and shout ... but choose Newt or Paul.
The sad thing is that Pennsylvania is about to nominate a liberal Democrat running as a Republican for Senate, and he has been endorsed by the state GOP party machine. About the best thing you can say about him is that he’s smarter than Casey, but that’s not saying a whole lot.
Steve Welch is a Democrat who voted for Obama and supported the reptilian Joe Sestak, and yet he wants people to think he’s a conservative.
Under no circumstances should anyone reading this vote for Welch.
As far as I can tell, the only reasonable conservative choice for the senate is Sam Rohrer.
As for delegates, McCabe, Merritt, Puig, and Przybylski are the ones to support, IMHO.
I almost wish I was registered as a Democrat so I could vote against Patrick Scumbag Murphy who’s running for attorney general.
In my opinion Santorum gave us Romney. Newt’s by far a better choice than Santorum.
Thank you God for the snow. This will keep the liberal Republicans home. Conservatives are going to vote regardless for Newt!!!! Yeah! I still wish Santorum was in so I could vote for him, but voting for Newt is awesome too!!!!!
When Santorum suspended his campaign, that ended any chance that I would vote for him. Newt’s the only one left.
Rohrer may be dull, but he is conservative. And the only one that is consistent with his convictions. I hate the GOP for what they are doing to my country by trotting out liberals or worse each election cycle.
I WILL NEVER vote for romney. Ever. If I have explain myself...
“The thing that sucks is when people want to bring the stuff they were leaving with them and start telling us what to do...”
We upstate NY’ers have the same problem with the NYC people. Upstate NY is far more Conservative than most folks think.
Voting for Newt in a couple of hours.
Funny thing about this election - although we have received dozens of political phone calls, we have gotten only one piece of political mail. It was the Republican endorsed ticket. The way I'm feeling now, it's almost a cheat sheet for whom I shouldn't vote. As far as I can tell, the only endorsed candidate who's got my vote is Joe Rooney (congressional race).
What about Tom Smith? I'm leaning his way because I thought the TEA Party endorsed him. Quite frankly, I want to vote for whichever one will garner more votes against Welch. Is that likely to be Rohrer?
Same thoughts I have in CT. I’d never vote for a proven threat to the US that currently occupies the W.H., but there needs to be someone to unwind the evil that has been inflicted.
I just voted for Ron Paul in NYS.
Why waste your time arguing. Don’t you know Newt is going to ride in on his white horse and save the day? After all, we have to teach those GOP elites a lesson even if it means waking up to a “president” obama every day for the next five years. We can sustain the damage you know.
I understand Tom Smith changed his party from D to R just weeks before announcing his run.
Can’t vote for either Welch or Smith.
Christian would be OK too, but has zero name recognition. Rohrer ran against Corbett in the primary for governor, so his name is somewhat familiar. He’s our best shot, but it’s a long shot at best.
The grandees in Harrisburg have anointed Welch. That sickens me.
This is the first election in probably 16 years I wasn't among the first 10 people to vote -if that gives you an indication of how unenthused I am. Going to wait till dinner time and see if I can get a free piece of pizza from the poll workers!
I am going expressly to vote for two of my Neighbors in Tredyffrin Twp. who are running for Committeee people as very strong conservatives-grass roots baby!
I wouldn’t bank on msnbc, or any media source, publishing the truth about Newt, or any conservative Republican for that matter.
The subject of Newt should and can reasonably be laid aside, in terms of relating it to what Santorum did and when he did it.
Laying that subject aside...
Santorum pulled out of the race because he did not have the funds to compete in his home state of PA against Romney and prevail there.
He was going to have to withdraw, regardless of what Newt did or didn’t do or when Newt did it. That’s why I say, lay that subject aside. The two subjects don’t relate or intertwine the way you believe.
Rick felt he couldn’t stand to lose PA again.
Or stand to run up the debt it would cause his campaign just to try to win it, win or lose. It is one of the most expensive states to run in. It’s size and complexity and the costly advertising. The time required to campaign...everything.
Everyone knew moneybags Romney was poised to spend whatever it took there to win, through the same negative and lying ad blitz he used on Newt in Iowa and in FL, that almost destroyed Newt and which gave Santorum an opening he used.
Rick knew that same weapon was about to be aimed at him with devastating effect, in a state near and dear to him that he had lost before, and that loss was ENOUGH.
There is no use commenting to you about Newt, as an individual.
Because, as the good book says, do not cast your pearls before the swine, lest they turn again, trample you underfoot and rend you.
And that wasn’t talking about literal pearls and literal swine, it was telling the disciples not to preach the good news of the gospel to people who had demonstrated time after time they were hopeless, but rather, go preach it to someone you had a chance to reach.
The only comment I’ll bother with is a technical one.
For any and all who care about the mess that is Mitt Romney being forced on us, Newt knows he isn’t going to win enough going forward to beat Romney in delegates going into the convention.
So, ignore people who keep piping up saying don’t vote for Newt, he can’t win...because neither can Santorum win, and because all Newt is trying to do is deadlock the convention, in order to give conservativism its voice.
That’s a worthy goal at this point.
It’s all we who can’t stand Mitt have left.
Newt works for a deadlocked convention on the first ballot.
To give conservativism its voice.
I’d vote for that.
As opposed to Romney’s coronation there.
There are a lot of local critters to vote for.
And then what happens at the deadlocked convention? The GOP-e nominates another unacceptable RINO like Christie or Jeb?
We were numbers 19 and 20. Looks like nobody's voting here in the first ring Philly burbs.
We're saying our prayers that Newt gets enough votes to screw up the convention for Romney.
