Hello Jedi, been a long time.


You still supporting Newt or is the sign real rather than "ironic"?

I still don't really like Romney and prefer Gingrich but I sure as hell don't want Santorum as the nominee to have an epic fail come November so I'm supporting Romney since Gingrich won't win the nomination anymore.

Why would Santorum be any worse then Newt in a General Election?

Social Issues - Econimic Issues = epic fail and when he does talk about them it makes you want to hide, such as the new thread where he said gasoline prices caused the recession. Gingrich might still lose but at least he would focus on the economy.

And $2.50 gas as a matter of policy doesn't want to make you hide? Tongue

I paid $3.79 a gallon earlier in the week, so I'd prefer that to what we have here right now. Tongue

But he can't give you that without either a massive recession or somehow skipping the necessary couple of years to bring production on line. It is legitimate to criticize Obama on energy, he can't take credit for Bush oil production to to cover his own anti-energy philosophy, but at the same time, we can't make impossible promises like that.

Right, that's the moderate formula that worked so well with McCain, and Dole.

Romney is just more of the same. Obama is stronger than him pretty much everywhere - so he's not going to win the election.

Hey, disagree with me now, but you can quote this post when the election comes.

Well maybe you'll be right and I'll sadly be able to quote your post when the election comes.  But I'm reminded of how well the non-establishment Barry Goldwater did in 1964, handing LBJ a 68-32 Senate, a tow to 0ne House, and 44 of 50 states.

It looks like Rick and Newt will continue to share the honors for some time. Smiley

I don't really think one gives a damn about the other really, so they don't care much if it helps Mittens.  It doesn't matter much anymore anyway if one does drop out at this point.

Or a George McGovern in 1972.  Or, arguably, a Walter Mondale in 1984.
