This primary contest was long over after Santorum (11 states and over 3 million) votes suspended his campaign more than three weeks ago. What Gingrich says, does, appears, whether he's up or down in DE, his quixotic campaign has long been in disarray between penguin bites and bounced checks in Utah. The task now is to mitigate Romney's move to the center by anyway and every way we could by demanding a strong true conservative as VP. No more Bushes, Rubios or other RINOS. Defeat Lugar and Hatch and send a strong message to the GOP-e

And Newt's currently off to a rough start in Delaware. 51.5% - 32.8% with 6% reporting. He's beating Ron Paul though!

BREAKING NEWS:
Romney declared winner of DE primary. This game was over when Santorum gracefully suspended his campaign despite a magnificent trifecta win and altogether 11 states and over 3 million votes. Santorum for VP!!!!

Wow. Milt winning RI and CT. Didn’t see that coming. /s

These are two very blue states. I wouldn’t be surprised if Obummer got more votes running unopposed than the GOP candidates added up.

He's been done for awhile now. But, yes, Gingrich's virtually impossible road to victory just got a little more virtually impossible. I suspect he'll bow out before the end of the week.

Penn is starting to come in and Santorum is performing so badly in his home state. First 1% in and Mitts on 57% and Santorum on 17% and Paul on 15%. He better hope that % moves up a bit. I dont want him to lose that bad in his home state.

Santorum isn’t in the race anymore. I’m surprised he’s getting ANY votes in Pa.

And I could care less even if he does. The man is dead to me .... a sell-out extraordinaire.

Over in the Penn Sen. Primary. Smith is ahead with 42%. Rohrer on 20%.

Casey is only pulling 78% of the dem vote as the incumbent Dem.

One odd thing that could mean why HBO may win the election (assuming it's against Romney). We've had born-again Christan POTUS' since Nixon (in 1968). Most POTUS's have been Christians. Here, you have Romney, who I don't think is a born again Christian and BHO who amazingly is, IMO, a born again Christian (who, like Carter, is a Christian who is also a stanch socialist.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBhM4L-wiI0&feature=related

If he had another 50 of years, he'd probably figure out how terrible socialism is - but he's too young to have figured that out yet. My guess - BHO is one of those "do gooders" who actually believes in the lofty goals of socialism but denies the utter disaster collectivism wreaks on a society.

You might as well vote for Obama. Virgil Goode and Sarah Palin have no chance. What a fool you are.

Our choice is to get rid of Obama, no matter who the nominee is. You can throw away your vote. I won’t. This election is to get rid of the commies. You’re principled vote doesn’t matter this time. Get a clue.

You have ZERO principles. Many of us are voting for Virgil Goode. He is a man of principles and deserves every conservative’s vote. Don’t vote for a liberal like you are planning. What I suppose you would vote for Bloomberg if he were our candidate or Lindsey Graham......it does not make sense to keep lowering our standards.

You guys are really sad. Right now is not the time to stand up for your beliefs. You may think I’m selling out. Romney isn’t my choice, who’s left? You can throw away your vote on some schmuck who thinks he may beat obama or you can defeat Obama.

Listen, I’m a huge conservative, I’ve be here for years. This is our political system. Romney is an inferior candidate, your choices have no chance of moving the needle at all. I hate that romney is our candidate, but I hate more that obama will be re-elected. Today, we have to get rid of obama. That’s the bottom line, get rid of obama.

Gingrich was unelectable from the very beginning. He had baggage that would sink a string of cruise liners and his gender gap with women was wider that the depths of the Grand Canyon. He’s now forced into an undignified exit being kicked out in several sates and his so-called southern strategy in ashes. He ruined Santorum’s chances of defeating Romney in MI and Oh and possibly WI. We’ve had enough about Gingrich between penguin bites, bounced checks in UT, on-again and off-agin campaign, looney ideas of permanent moon-based colonies, $2.50 gallon/gas in two years, amnesty for grandmothers, and cap and trade.

This was a meaningless and quixotic campaign. Santorum got 11 states and over 3 million votes and Gallup at one point had him a point above Obama. Get a reality check. Had Gingrich, like Bachmann, Perry, and Cain, before him, quit after Santorum’s spectacular trifecta, it would have been Santorum on the podium today.

That said, we don’t take our primary battles into the general. As Sarah Palin and even Gingrich himself has said, the task at hand is to make sure that Obama is a one-term president, and hold fire to Romney’s feet should he choose to veer to the center/left.

The problem with your premise is that Romney is as bad if not worse than Obama. They both are liberal and would destroy the country. I say go for a guy who can fix it. Either Sarah Palin or Virgil Goode are those people. Romney will not fight for what is right especially if we have a Republican House and Senate. If we have President Goode than we have the best of all three parts of government with a True constitutionalist with a Republican House and Senate. That is our best option and CAN happen.

The problem with your premise is that Romney is as bad if not worse than Obama.

The problem with your premise is the number of known, respected conservatives who will take a different position, including in all likelyhood every candidate you have supported up until now (Goode excepted, clearly since he will run in the general election).

At least Gingrich stayed in the race, but so far, it hasn't been good for him. Probably doesn't help him that people are jumping ship to a 3rd-party.

No if you don't stick to principals, they don't mean anything. Now is not the time to give up it ain't over till its over, let's go out with our boots on, not surrendering!
“THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” Thomas Paine 1776

If it does (and I agree it appears it will) come down to Mitt. I won't throw my vote away to oust one socialist for another.

That's it in a nutshell. Mitt and his evil supporters must be laughing at how easy it was to beat Conservatives.

The biggest drive for Mitt if he is President would be his desire every day to screw Conservatives.

Mitt is 100% a Statist Political Animal.

Conservatism and the Constitution annoy Mitt and his vile GOP-e backers.

The whole “Romney is as bad as Obama” position misses reality on several of levels. Disclaimer: I hate Romney, I want Newt, but Romney WILL be the nominee.

1). Obama is a radical Marxist. In a second term, he won’t be held back by any accountability to the electorate (we saw a glimpse of this during his open mic comments) and he’ll subvert the authority of congress. He will take us in a radical direction that will take decades to overcome.

2). Romney’s views are founded in liberalism; I’m convinced of this. BUT he is no where near as far far far left off to the left as the radical Obama is. Romney is a Liberal, Obama is a radical Marxist.

3). Romney can be mostly controled by a Conservative. Republican congress, Obama cannot. If we work to get a solid conservative House and Senate conservatives can dictate the agenda. Obama will veto and call the legislation “radical right” and the media will lap it up.
