It's a mistake. In states where either Santorum or Gingrich won at least one delegate (i.e. those where they campaigned and were on the ballot), together they are well ahead of Romney.

They don't need to quit, they need to double down and get into more races before the convention.

Doubtful. They'll either continue to vote for notRomney out of spite, or just not vote at all in the primaries, hoping that depressed turnout will send a message of its own.

Ask him why. After all:

-Bin Laden and his allies are dead
-Iraq is over
-DOW is up over 100%
-Unemployment is down almost 1% in less than four years
-Oil production is at all-time highs
-Deportations and raids against employers are at new highs
-The military is no longer firing its best language translators because they are gay
-He can carry his gun more places today than he could in 2008

Not sure why it's so bad for him

I don't know if that's the case or not. The industry I work in is full of ex and retired military types who tend to be very small-government (except for DEFENSE), conservative people. I suspect it's more the Democratic stance on gay marriage, abortion rights, etc, that set him off.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: RminusQ: And so it goes...

Total committed: Romney 563, Santorum 205, Gingrich 132, Paul 27, Huntsman 2, Undeclared 22, Uncommitted 7, Unclaimed 4.

Superdelegates (according to FL/DCW): Romney 33, Gingrich 2, Santorum 2, Paul 1.

GRAND TOTAL: Romney 596, Santorum 207, Gingrich 134, Paul 28. 1144 to win.

All frothy has to do is pledge all of his delegates to Newt and we're back in business.


PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN!

Oh well, now it's time to see Mitt Romney get his ass handed to him by high-flying rhetoric, full-campaign mode Obama. Remember that guy, how great he was? Well he's coming back, and even though this time through we know at least half of what he says is full of shiat, it's still a welcome change from the boring, pragmatic, moderate Obama he's been while governing.

There is no chance in hell that Mittens picks Frothy-Boy as his veep. That would kill any chance he has of getting votes from independents, let alone Dems. He will pick somelike the following:

--Chris Christie (widely [heh] viewed as a moderate even though he really isn't, able to fire off some good one-liners, can help get votes in a big state like NJ)

--Paul Ryan (name is in the news, teabagger favorite, thus far able to hide the extremist nature of his agenda behind a pretty-boy facade)

--Marco Rubio (name ends in a vowel so Mittens assume he'll draw Latino votes even though he's Cuban-American and most Latin Americans distrust and resent Cubans because of their favored status in the U.S.; teabagger favorite; should help Mittens in key swing state of Florida)

--Mitch Daniels (inoffensive boring white guy--so in other words, he speaks Mittens' language and appeals to the same demographic)

IMO Santorum won't be Romney's vp pick, it makes no sense. The teabaggers have been fed a 4 year diet of Obama seekrit muslin communist socialist usurper and he is a black guy. They don't need any more motivation to vote against the usurper. Romney will need a guy who is likable to women and moderates while having some military cred.

I had a videotape of the raw footage from his last news conference. Professional camera work- zoomed in to a closeup of R Budd as he slumped to the floor.

The disgusting part is that his state pension went to his family because under PA law, until sentenicng, he was still state treasurer. Politicians protecting themselves.

Cyberluddite: --Chris Christie (widely [heh] viewed as a moderate even though he really isn't, able to fire off some good one-liners, can help get votes in a big state like NJ)


Christie wouldn't help Romney get NJ

--Paul Ryan (name is in the news, teabagger favorite, thus far able to hide the extremist nature of his agenda behind a pretty-boy facade)

Would cause him to get hammered by the elderly vote

--Marco Rubio (name ends in a vowel so Mittens assume he'll draw Latino votes even though he's Cuban-American and most Latin Americans distrust and resent Cubans because of their favored status in the U.S.; teabagger favorite; should help Mittens in key swing state of Florida)

*might* help in Florida but wouldn't do much to sway the overall Hispanic vote

--Mitch Daniels (inoffensive boring white guy--so in other words, he speaks Mittens' language and appeals to the same demographic)

Would be thoroughly uninspiring and wouldn't help turnout at all.

Depends on what Romney's looking for. One thing the GOP isn't short on is bland white smiling people. They (Pawlenty being the front-runner in this category with John Thune, Mitch Daniels, and a hundred others) might actually be capable of making Romney appear interesting by comparison.

imontheinternet: That was sudden. Either he made a deal with Romney, or his campaign is spiraling into debt. Probably both.


It's more a case that he saw the handwriting on the wall and realized he was going to get waxed in his home state of Pennsylvania (again!), this time by Mittens and the millions of bucks Mittens was prepared to spend there to finish FrothyBoy off. That would kill any credibility he has as a future candidate for Prez, and FrothyBoy is delusional enough to think that he as long as he avoids that embarassment he might actually have a shot in 2016 after Mittens gets biatchslapped by Obama in November. I mean, I can see why a normal person in his shoes might think that--he's still young, and it follows the pattern that Mittens set last time of coming in second to the eventual nominee and then getting his turn 4 years later, but the problem, of course, is that nobody is going to win on a platform of banning porn, banning contraception, speaking out agains the evils of masturbation, and all the rest.

Who? (Goes to Google) Never heard of this guy (and I follow politics pretty closely), and apparently he's straight laced and boring.

Quote from an article about this speculation:

Downside? Portman is boring, so the ticket, Garrett writes, would be "boredom squared or squares squared."

Oh, that'll get people to vote for Romney.

The VP candidate should be a bastard. Johnson or Cheney are perfect examples. Boring is exactly the wrong quality in a VP candidate, unless you are merely trying to only lose by a little instead of a lot (which is possible; IE Romney knows he is going to lose and now merely wants to limit by how much by picking somebody with minimal upsides but few downsides). Kind of the opposite of what McCain did-he picked "not boring", and while it didn't work out for him, it could have had he picked a non-drooling moron for his "not boring" choice (while boring was a guaranteed failure in his case as well).

If Romney wins it's more corporatism just like Obama. The people lose again in 2012 either way. Loss with a cannon shot to the face, or loss with a hop into a lava pit.


Allen West? Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease. The lulz would be even more epic than with Palin, the man is batshiat, pants-on-the-head insane.

Headline of the year.

I would've gone with "If his wife had only had an abortion, Rick Santorum could've been president."

Hobodeluxe: actually he's just suspending it. I'm guessing that is so he can continue taking in money.

So we've lost the only candidate who was born in the U.S.?

canyoneer: And after much utterly pointless sound, fury, and endless torrents of verbal diarrhea from legions of leech political commentators, Phase One of the farce is complete. Now, the even more intense and even more meaningless Phase Two begins. When Phase Two is complete, we will know which bland, middle-of-the-road corporate spokesman will lie to us for for the next four years. It's an epochal day.


And that's just til the end of the primary.

well... Santorum succeeded in clearing the way for Mittens *sigh*

now that his job is done, time to quit.

I hope everyone that supported Santorum is happy with the result!

If you had just gotten behind Gingrich, we could of had a REAL conservative as our nominee.

so true maybe now newt will win texas

"You people disappointed that Santorum lost should have supported our even more long-shot candidate!"

FROM FROTHY FREEPERVILLE:

I guess I can relax. I can sleep in Election Day. All of those independents and moderates will make up for me not voting for RINO.
I hope the GOP chokes on Romney. I know they will

The Tea Party/Independents need to field a presidential candidate this fall because I hope the GOP/Romneyites lose this election.

That was my last republican primary.
Hold your nose one more time, folks, as you pull the lever.
@#$%&....^$*%^#....%^$%&....

Their loss is a foregone conclusion. If they had any sense (which they don't), they'd just cancel the convention.

Some Freepers are saying they will vote for Mitt to "save the country" from "Obutthole". Others seem to want to sit it out.
