[img]http://www.washingtonpost.com/rf/image_606w/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2012/04/10/National-Politics/Images/142640051-14508.jpg[/img] “We made a decision over the weekend that, while this presidential race for us is over — for me — and we will suspend our campaign effective today, we are not done fighting,” Santorum said at a campaign event in Gettysburg, Pa., the site of the historic and pivotal Civil War battle. The former Pennsylvania senator had been Romney’s top opponent, but he suffered a trio of defeats last week in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia, and over the weekend his daughter, Bella, was hospitalized for the second time this campaign due to complications from a rare genetic disorder. In announcing his decision, Santorum said Bella’s condition caused him to reconsider his campaign but that she “is a fighter and doing extraordinarily well.” He did not endorse or urge the delegates that he has won to support another candidate, but spokesman Hogan Gidley told MSNBC that the Romney campaign has requested a meeting about an endorsement, which he said Santorum is “open” to. Santorum is currently second in the delegate race, but he would have to win upwards of three-fourths of the remaining delegates in order to secure the nomination. Instead, he seemed to be hoping that Romney would fall short of the delegate threshold and that he could snatch the nomination at the Republican National Convention in August. Santorum called Romney before his announcement Tuesday to inform him of his decision to drop out, according to a Romney campaign official. “This race was as improbable as any race you’ll ever see for president,” Santorum said. Former House speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul remain in the campaign, but neither has shown the ability to be a consistent alternative to Romney. Gingrich, in particular, has seen his campaign hit a rough patch of late. He’s finished fourth in the last two major contests and revealed over the weekend that his campaign was $4.5 million in debt. Santorum’s exit virtually assures that Romney will secure the Republican Party’s nomination, though he so far has secured only about 60 percent of the delegates that he needs. In a statement, Romney congratulated his opponent. “Sen. Santorum is an able and worthy competitor, and I congratulate him on the campaign he ran,” Romney said. “He has proven himself to be an important voice in our party and in the nation. We both recognize that what is most important is putting the failures of the last three years behind us and setting America back on the path to prosperity.” Republican leaders in recent weeks have been slowly coalescing around Romney, calling for an end to an increasingly arduous campaign that some say threatens the party’s chances in November. That trend continued Tuesday, with Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad endorsing Romney shortly before Santorum’s announcement and Florida Gov. Rick Scott endorsing Romney shortly afterward. (Scott’s endorsement may not help Romney — he’s quite unpopular as governor of a key swing state — but today is a good day for that endorsement to get lost in the news.) “Mitt Romney will be our party’s nominee and it is critical that all Republicans coalesce behind Gov. Romney and focus on electing him as president so he can put the policies in place to create jobs, turn our economy around and get federal spending under control,” Scott said in a statement. A new Washington Post/ABC News poll this week showed a majority of Republican-leaning Americans — 52 percent — said Santorum should stay in the campaign, while 43 percent said he should drop out. By suspending his campaign rather than ending it, Santorum can continue to raise money to retire any remaining debt he might have. In the end, Santorum won contests in 11 states, but all of his primary victories were relegated to the South, and he failed to win any of a string of primaries in the Midwest in recent weeks.

    Rick Santorum

    What are your opinions? Here are mine (I'm just copying what I said on a facebook status I made) I just find it funny that Osama bin Laden and Santorum have the same political views. Even his political views are nuts. He thinks we should stop going to college? No thanks. He wants to remove the separation of Church and state, even the speech made by JFK about the separation had Santorum saying, and I quote "makes me want to throw up". I'm sorry, but we're not living in the Dark ages anymore, people have moved on, and Science is now the majority of belief for people. He wants to push Religion on the United States, and it's not going to work, that's why we originally have the Separation of Church and State. Just because HE thinks Gay marriage shouldn't be legal, doesn't mean every other United States Citizen does. If Santorum is elected into office, I can ASSURE you that this country will be practicing Fascism. Rick has no real positions beyond social conservative positions. his primary concerns are reconciling faith and politics. He is a vengeful authoritarian leaning candidate who would be staunchly against progressive issues based on his own immutable world-view. Wedge issues with little importance would be hoisted onto everybody, and very important issues that need to be addressed would be ignored. Ie: he would feel that religious and sexual leanings should be looked at when determining the validity of a persons argument, and things like drug use, medicine, gay rights, and abortion would be heavily crusaded against with little regard to discussion. Not only that, but he has little knowledge of business, or any desire to deal with the economy. He would be very easy to manipulate into supporting very stupid measures, and would quickly become a fall guy for extreme legislation, ala bush jr. He supports endless unfundable war on the belief that he has a divine writ to, and would greatly ramp up overseas presence, leading to american bankruptcy, especially considering his lackluster business record. He also looks like he has a butt-plug in 24-7, set to vibrate whenever someone criticizes his position. That isn't the face a human being makes otherwise. Because of, among many other things: He openly advocates the abolishment of church-state separation, has hypocritical views on abortion and birth control, does not believe that the Constitution grants a right to privacy for individuals, flip-flopped on many of his early (slightly more socially-liberal) votes (such as funding for Amtrak), has been listed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington as one of their "most corrupt politicians," added an intelligent design rider to the No Child Left behind Act (whatever your opinion of the Act itself) then backpedaled when he got taken to task for it. The mere fact that he is openly against specific provisions of the Constitution means that he would be unable to take the Presidential Oath of Office (swearing to "protect and defend the Constitution") without lying, and that alone makes him completely unfit to be President. Read the Wikipedia entry on him and take a look at the laundry-list of shit he's piled up behind him. None of the Republican candidates are particularly enthralling, but Santorum's the worst of a bad lot. Compared to Santorum, everyone else in the field is relatively moderate; he holds very conservative views, so those who disagree with him tend to do so in fairly strong terms. For example, while many Republicans want to limit or outlaw abortion, and many don't want health insurance to cover contraception, Santorum has hinted that he would want to go well past that and ban contraception completely, on the grounds that any sex other than for the creation of children is immoral. Most Republicans believe that government should be small and limited, and should intrude on personal freedoms as little as possible. To quote Sen. Santorum: "[Libertarians] have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, that government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulation low and that we shouldn't get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn't get involved in cultural issues, you know, people should do whatever they want. Well, that is not how traditional conservatives [like me] view the world." Santorum has also expressed opposition to the separation of church and state, called climate change "junk science" and suggested that America's energy policy should be "drill everywhere".

  7. i really think it's time for a new one.
  8. Discuss what you think this means, and if you think he will win. I think he could possibly get us going in the right direction, but I think that he will fuck up anything that Obama has done. [url]http://www.cnn.com/2011/POLITICS/08/13/perry/index.html?hpt=hp_t1[/url]
