We have also had Newt Gingrich say he will stay in the campaign to try to derail Romney. Not to win, just to keep Romney from winning. His speech after the Mississippi and Alabama primaries bordered on delusional IMHO.
Like or don't like who we have as a choice this year, and I am not a huge fan of any of them, is this kind of rhetoric good for the GOP's prospects in the fall?
How could, for instance, Santorum or Gingrich now come out in the general election and throw their support (and supporters) behind Romney - the likely nominee?
Bottom line, they are writing campaign commercials for the Dems.
I wonder, and, as I said this is far from an endorsement, if it is time for Santorum and Gingrich to man up and step aside.
Gingrich was done when he started. His campaign has been a joke all along.
Santroum fought the good fight but, it's over. If he can't see this by now he's an idiot. He would have to get about 75% of the delegates from here out, in states where he is mostly trailing. There are some inspirational come-back stories, this isn't one of them.
Ron Paul, forget about it. He's quaint and a little crazy but completely irrelevant. He's hanging out until the end to give his supporters a voice at the convention. I'm not opposed to this. I actually respect it. And yes, it is different than trying to undermine the front runner like Newt is doing.
Forget a brokered convention. At best this would be disastrous for the GOP. What kind of dumb-asses do we look like to the swing voters if we cannot even choose a nominee? That inspires trust.
Also, who would be the nominee? Think Romney's supporters are going to be rabid supporters of a candidate that did not get any votes in the primary and was chosen instead by the party bosses? Should they be?
Think Romney is going to quietly go away if he has 85 - 90% of the delegates needed when no one else generated 40 - 50%? Should he?
The question for these gentleman becomes, which is more important - their country and party or their ego.
