I didn't like Pawlenty because I knew he was capable of this.

A marriage made in heaven... Do the math.
Pawlenty has a mountain of campaign debt. Romney has a mountain of money.

Absurd.......how do you walk back from:
"I don't think you can prosecute the political case against President Obama if you are a co-conspirator in one of the main charges against the president on a political level. And so, it really puts your nominee, if that's who it turns out to be, in a very difficult spot."

I can't help but to think of this line from Gone with the Wind:

Quote:
1st man to freed slave: "We're gonna give each and every one of you forty acres and a mule!"
Freed slave: "And a mule?! Gee!! Forty acres and a mule."
1st man: "And you're gonna become voters! And you're gonna vote like your friends do!"

This makes no sense at all for a "social conservative" to endorse Mr. Gay Marriage/Pro-pick-your-stance-on-life. Shucks, Paw, why not just go ahead and endorse President Obama while you're at it.

I predict that the remaining candidates will knock each other out over the next few months, leaving Huck no option but to run. You think Perry versus Romney is a good set of options? I'd rather be forced to choose between the electric chair and lethal injection.

This is why I'm still having a hard time getting behind Santorum. If you recall, he endorsed Mitt over Mike in 2008. This is what he says about it:

Quote:
Amid all the sniping, it's sometimes easy to forget that Santorum endorsed Romney in 2008, offering him a high-profile endorsement in the midst of the hotly contested GOP primary campaign.

Now, as Scott Conroy writes over at Real Clear Politics, Santorum is trying to explain how he could so heartily support Romney in '08—health care bill and all—but be so strongly opposed to him today. According to Santorum, the answer is simple: His Romney endorsement was merely a political calculation. He didn't want John McCain to win, and the other candidate he liked—Mike Huckabee—didn't seem viable.

"I made, I hate to say it, a calculated political decision that Romney was the stronger horse and had a better chance to win Super Tuesday with the resources he had," Santorum said. "I like him. The time I spent with him, he was a gentleman. He's very sincere."

Except on health care, apparently—or so Santorum now claims as he makes some more personal political calculations.

I'm so sick of our "conservative" candidates throwing their convictions out the window for the sake of "political calculations". :barf

God please give us a candidate with wisdom and the guts to stand up for what they believe! :pray

I don't understand why politicians are too scared to endorse someone who may not win, even if it's the person they believe in the most??? :wall-yellow I would rather stand by my principles then vote for someone who is everything I am against.

When I was waving signs for Huckabee in 2008 I got so many comments from people who really liked Huckabee but were voting for McCain "because he was going to win". I told them that if McCain was already going to win then they should vote for who they wanted.

I know I'm preaching to the choir here, I just get so frustrated when I hear this!

I think a candidate can be far behind in the polls and still get the votes (as Gov. Huckabee proved) but that candidate had to make people believe he can win. That's what Huckabee had in 2008 that Santorium doesn't, IMO. He doesn't make me believe he can win.

Why would Pawlenty not endorse Santorum? Cain? I like both of those guys better than either Perry or Romney. Plus, neither of those have been ambiguous about abortion, which I would think would be important to Pawlenty, if he is indeed a social conservative.
