Santorum said Romney basically bought his success. But Romney's financial
backing is a direct result of the level of support he's received from
followers... something Santorum envies and wishes he would've had. So in
essence, Romney's success is a more a result of his number of backers and
their level of support. The financial resources that followed were a result of
that support. Every other primary candidate would love to have had those same
things. Because they don't, Santorum and Gingrich cry spilt milk and make
excuses... especially Santorum as of late. On top of that, literally every
poll taken shows Santorum and Gingrich would do worse running against Obama than
Romney would... if the election was held today. Santorum's ego issues
are causing him to become a very sore loser. They've caused him to forget
that the primary goal of all Republicans going into the primary race was (and
is) to defeat Obama. But Santorum's recent attitude and actions are
becoming an asset and help to Obama. There comes a point when candidates should
put party goals ahead of personal egos and goals. Santorum can't seem to do
Quit focusing on the next game. Win the one you are in first....please. Then
we can all talk about the next race.
It's sad that republicans' (of which I am one) main goal is not voting
for the best candidate, but getting one they don't like out.
I think that it is important for the GOP to come together if they want to have a
chance in November. Romney hasn't told Santorum to quit and I think that is
respectful of him. I believe that Santorum needs to come to that conclusion
himself and step aside. Romney did this in 2008 for McCain, and though
Republicans lost that race, it showed quite a bit of humility of Romney's
side. Actually McCain was quoted as saying that Romney was working harder for
his (McCain's) campaign than McCain himself was. That simple act shows to
me what kind of person Romney is. He isn't selfish and he isn't
egotistical. I wish Santorum was that way, but he seems to be showing that he is
a little bit arrogant. I only say this because he is thinking so
unrealistically. He needs to win 70%~ of the remaining delegates to win and so
far he has only be getting around 25%. Time to wake up and bow out gracefully.
If he keeps this up he won't have any backers if he runs again in the
I found the last quote by Santorum kind of ironic. Santorum is complaining that
he doesn't have as much money as Romney, but, in the same breath, complains
that Romney doesn't have enough to beat Obama. Huh? The simple math is that
Santorum doesn't even have enough money (i.e. support) to win the
primaries. How does he think he has the resources to win Obama? Romney is in
much better shape than Santorum to win Obama in the general election. I hope
this is as obvious to people voting in the primaries as it is to me...There comes a time when the country should be placed in front of any one
candidate. Santorum, in another ironic moment, mentioned that he would gladly
accept an invitation to be the VP, so that he can 'serve his country'.
The best way for Santorum to serve his country, along with the other two
Republican candidates, is to let go of their egos and get out of the race. Obama
simply has to go!
It is time that the GOP quit bickering. Romney says some stupid things and may
not have all the answers but I believe he is better than what we have. I know he
can end a lot of waste in government and help turnaround the economy. It really
comes down to medium and small business owners to turn things around. Hopefully
Romney can help us business owners help everyone else.

"If you want to see the Mormon hate speech/writing go to the Fox News

Ignorance is alive and well! How sad indeed!"Which one? The
anti-Mormon hate speech and writings or the actual Mormon hate speech/writings
from the past? I believe both go hand in hand every time ... it's
anti-Mormons who are against past hate speech/writings of the church.
"President Romney" has a much beter ring to it than "President
Let's assume for a moment that Romney will be the nominee; I don't
think he will be able to beat Obama, so while we're all out hoping Romney
can win, prepare for 4 more dismal years or the end of america as we know it!
Rick Santorum == Ross Perot... now there's a funny match up. I love it.
