Video: Gingrich’s kinda sorta concession speech

posted at 10:41 pm on January 31, 2012 by Allahpundit

Yeah, I’m thinking that a guy who’s quoting the Declaration of Independence in his final lines probably isn’t thinking of conceding the race anytime soon. BuzzFeed has a copy of his campaign’s official post-election talking points, but you don’t really need those to grasp the takeaway here. One line: “It is now clear that this will be a two-person race between the conservative leader, Newt Gingrich, and the Massachusetts moderate, and the voters of Florida made that clear.” In other words, Santorum’s dead on arrival (even though he polls better against Romney than Newt does), so it’s time for conservatives to consolidate behind the only remaining viable Not Romney in the field. Honestly, that’s probably the most compelling reason for his candidacy going forward. Good for him, I guess, for identifying it.

If you’re wondering why the post about the concession speech is going up after the victory speech, it’s because Newt apparently refused to call Romney to concede tonight and decided to wait him out. Terrific. Exit quotation from Larry Sabato: “None of the February contests are good for Gingrich. Caucuses, by their very nature, reward long, detailed planning and considerable resources to gin up turnout. Translation: They are tailor-made for Romney and Paul.”

The results tonight defy the supposition that if only Santorum would leave the race Gingrich would be winning. Santorum is now leading in MO, where Newt is not on the ballot. Virginia is left to Paul and Romney. Tennessee I hear Santorum is doing well, but then Newt is not on the ballot there, either. Santorum is competitive in Ohio, tell me did Newt get on the ballot there?

So tell me who should be dropping out of this race, Newt? Could it be that Newt knows without Santorum dropping out before today’s vote that he had/has no chance to come close to beating the Numbers? This is why I can’t stand Newt. He has figured the numbers and knows he has no chance, unless Santorum dropped out before the Florida vote. Since that has not happened, you will see Newt stay in 3rd place and he knows it because of the states he cannot compete.

All of the states through February will go to Romney. I believe this race is really between Santorum and Romney with Newt just being one big distraction and waste of time.

That’s a punk move right there. One reason to definitely not nominate Newt is not that he stands a good chance of losing to Obama in November, it’s that his “concession” speech afterward would be an untter embarrassment to the GOP and conservatives alike. If we’re lucky, he’ll go Howard Beale on us. If we’re not so fortunate, he’ll pull a Budd Dwyer(DO NOT Google that if you don’t know who I’m talking about, trust me!).

What was my favorite moment from Newt’s non-concession concession speech? Was it…

1.) When Newt cited to Gettysburg?

2.) When Newt referred to himself in the 3rd person?

3.) When Newt, who supposedly hates the liberal media, worked in a reference to the late Dean of Washington reporters David Broder?

4.) When Newt mentioned 46 states left to go, despite not being on the ballot of two of them?

5.) When Newt failed to congratulate the winner of the race, Mitt Romney?

TAMPA, FL—Following a decisive win in tonight’s Florida primary, presidential candidate Mitt Romney took a moment during his victory address to reflect on the current crop of Republicans vying for the party’s nomination, telling the gathered crowd he “[had] to admit that, overall, it’s a pretty weak field.” “No question about it, you’re looking at a bunch of duds,” Romney said to his supporters, who grew silent as the former Massachusetts governor added that it was hard to imagine any of the GOP contenders, himself included, being president of the United States. “Republican voters have been dealt a crappy hand, and that’s all there is to it. It’s like the year the Democrats had Michael Dukakis and Gary Hart—maybe even worse. To be perfectly honest, our party’s in a weird, transitional phase right now. We don’t really know who we are, what we stand for, or what it is we’re even trying to do. On the other hand, in 2016, we should be stacked: Paul Ryan, Chris Christie, Mitch Daniels. Lot of great options there. This year is garbage, though, and I sincerely apologize for that. Anyway, off to Nevada.” Romney then exited the stage to zero applause, got into his car, and was driven to the airport.

In the 2008 Republican primary in Florida, in which John McCain beat Romney by a margin of 36%-31%, a total of nearly 1.95 million votes were cast.

But in tonight’s primary, turnout was actually much lower. At time of writing, with 98% of precincts reporting, the total turnout is only about 1.65 million — a drop-off of 15% in terms of the raw number of voters.

Romney depressing the base?

The only way to save this Country, is to hold the establishment political elite ruling class down…

… and rip out their teeth with a pair of pliers.

Newt knows this, and also knows how to do this…

… Mittens is endorsed by John “My Friends…” McCain and the political elite ruling class.

Someone might say a bad work about him or call him “mean” and he can’t have THAT now, can we…?

… One State this early in doesn’t mean squat, especially since they lost half of their delegates because they moved their primary up.

You hang in there Newt…

… He might not win the nomination, but the longer he stays in and joins the conversation, the more Conservative the nominee will have to be.

Did Romney go to Vietnam?

Schadenfreude on January 31, 2012 at 11:10 PM

I don’t believe so, but unlike Gingaling, he wasn’t a big supporter of others going.

How many of you were inspired, and by which speech?

Who saw the fat lady sing?

Romney didn’t go because he went to Paris instead.

Schadenfreude on January 31, 2012 at 11:14 PM

Did Newt say something? Got distracted by wife dujour Aqua-Net helmet hair.

Oops,thats it,not (iyt)!

Yeah and VA has 49 delegates, almost as many as FLA with a winner-takes-it-all system if the winner scores a majority.

cynccook on January 31, 2012 at 11:06 PM

For real?

Go, Ron Paul!!!

ABR! Stop Mitt Romney (aka, McCain 2.0) at all costs!

Well, we have to keep this going cause Sarah Palin said so or something like that.

I’m hearing tonight that Paul may take Maine, but he’s too old and is just a place keeper for Rand, which is a good thing.

I’m disappointed in Sarah, since she could’ve endorsed someone months ago and prevented the Mitt-Media love affair after Iowa. If Mitt actually lost Iowa to Santorum by a larger margin, Mitt’s momentum in New Hampshire would’ve been less-significant, and Ron Paul could’ve taken more delegates away from Mitt and the RNC.

picked by the MSM and the S/S is a
further Lefty Narration,on that I would imagine!:)

Hey, tinfoil: it is so a nutjob does not harm or kill the candidate. Is there nothing that is not a conspiracy to you?

kunegetikos on January 31, 2012 at 11:16 PM

Yeah, Ron Paul is REALLY old. He needs to relax and focus on his next puddin’ cup.

Romney didn’t go because he went to Paris instead.

Schadenfreude on January 31, 2012 at 11:14 PM

Close enough. Saigon was the “Paris of the Orient”. Better than being a gung-ho supporter of the war and not going.

VorDaj on January 31, 2012 at 11:16 PM

Gingrich is totally lacking in class. Not only did he fail to congratulate Romney on his victory but he didn’t even bother to call Romney privately to say anything. Gingrich is without a doubt, the worst person to be running for President this year. I hope all you Gingrich fans noticed the women voters in Florida really stuck it to Newt. Women voters have always been a vulnerability to Republican candidates and if Gingrich were the nominee we would be trounced. If you want someone more conservative than Romney, Santorum is an acceptable choice. He is also a human being. Gingrich belongs on the moon with his moon station.

minnesoter on January 31, 2012 at 11:16 PM

Hey, leave him ALONE!

Besides, Ron is in much better shape than that old geezer John McShame, and he was still nominated by the GOP last go-around.

to clean up,Hopeys Disaster!:)

canopfor on January 31, 2012 at 11:13 PM

Thanks for that…

… and it is going to take an adult, with the stones to get the job done.

If Mittens is the nominee, I will vote for him over Obowma…

… but I just don’t see it.
