    Now the shoe is on the other foot. It is Santorum that is the by far major nonRomney candidate and Newt would appear to be the spoiler.

    When the situation was reversed Gingrich argued that Santorum was helping Romney get the nomination and for the good of the conservative cause Santorum should drop out.

    Now that the same logic would apply to Gingrich dropping out, should he?

    Sure, why not.

    I think Santorum is going to be the last of the "Not Romneys", and Newt has had his moment.

    No. I think Newt should stay in. Who know. He may make a comeback.

    Of course money is a problem for him so he may HAVE to drop out.

    Santorum or Mitt. I could vote for either one.

    No, why should he?

    He is, if nothing else, insuring that he'll be able to sell books after the election.

    I mean you don't really think that any of these guys really give a shit about their party or their nation, do ya?

    More than they care about themselves, I mean.

    What? Withdraw?

    But there's STILL so MUCH damage he can do!

    He's not done with Mittens yet.
    And I bet he has some SPECIAL revenge planned for Frothy Rick now.

    NO!

    With all four in the race to the end, as it looks now, no one will accumulate the delegates needed for a first ballot nomination. Lets have an open convention and see if someone else comes out of the convention as the nominee. Because none of these 4 are instilling any enthusiasm in the electorate.

    Santorum for all his clean sweep didn't get any delegates because none of these caucuses awarded delegates so let's see what happens.

    Gingrich can't do negtative because the more he does the more people hate him.
    He has a real nasty demeanor....... he comes off as a real bastard.
