Newt: I won’t exit the race until Mitt Romney hits 1,144

posted at 6:07 pm on March 26, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Newt Gingrich confirms with this statement what everybody already knew: His purpose in the race at this point is less to secure the nomination himself (or even to spearhead a movement, like Ron Paul) than to thwart Mitt Romney. Same ol’ story:

Gingrich told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he won’t get out of the race until former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (R) – who Gingrich described as “the weakest frontrunner in modern times” — secures the 1,144 delegates necessary to clinch the GOP nomination.

“I think the morning that he gets 1,144 that are locked down, then I think he can claim to be the nominee,” Gingrich said. …

“Obviously, if (Romney) becomes the nominee, I will support him. . . . If he doesn’t win the nomination, then it’s going to be wide open and then we’re going to have a conversation for those 60 days,” he said, referring to the length of time between the last nominating contest in June and the national convention in August.

Asked about Santorum’s viability in the race, Gingrich responded that “he doesn’t have a guaranteed lock any more than I do or Mitt Romney does.”

Is it even feasible to stop Romney anymore, though? The day after the Mississippi and Alabama primaries, The Examiner’s Tim Carney wrote an excellent piece that asked the question, “Can the non-Mitts improve by 17 percent?” According to the delegate math at that point, the non-Romneys had to win at least 55 percent of the remaining delegates to stop Romney from securing the nomination. As Carney pointed out, that might not sound like a lot, especially divided among three candidates — but it required them to perform better than they had up to that point. Up until March 14, the non-Romneys had won just 44 percent of the vote.

So, what has happened since then? Missouri began its caucus process — but we won’t know the exact results until June. Romney won Puerto Rico and Illinois. Rick Santorum won Louisiana. Not bad for the non-Mitts, eh? Actually, it is. Romney took 70 of 91 delegates, which means the non-Mitts took just 21 or about 23 percent of the available delegates. That’s a far cry from the 55 percent they need to capture to stop Mitt.

What whiplash I have from my own opinions about this race! One day, I want the challengers out so I can attempt to reconcile myself to Romney. The next day, like today, I sympathize with the challengers. As I wrote this morning, it is perplexing that we’ll mostly likely end this eventful primary season by selecting for ourselves a candidate who, as Rick Santorum says, is “uniquely disqualified” to hit Obama where it hurts — on Obamacare. Probably I feel that way today because, with the hearings on Capitol Hill, I’m reminded of the many weaknesses of Obamacare.

For all that I might be able to sympathize with Santorum and Gingrich on the substance of the race, the reality still is as it was: Mitt Romney will in all likelihood be the nominee.

I’ll take Romney over Mitch Daniels. HoosierCare isn’t much better than RomneyCare, and MItch seems smug. I don’t know why some conservatives think Daniels is the bees knees, he’s pretty moderate.

No one remembers a quitter, to the end Newt. The fact that this could go all the way to the Convention is great. That means there will be less time for the RNC and our Candidate to screw up. Mr. Obama does quite well on his own, let him lead his own disaster.

States Rights is not about big government. Way back in the early part of the primaries many non Texans were all upset about Gardisil and paying in-state tuition. What Perry said and what many others said is that it was a state issue that did not affect the rest of the country. The federal government and its choke hold is a whole new ball game.

Texas is not big government at the state level. I think you have us confused with California or Wisconsin pre Scott Walker.

lhuffman34 on March 26, 2012 at 7:09 PM

Regan said it took three legs of conservatism to win the General Election. He won both of his elections.

Let us test that.
Goldwater only had two legs missing the Social Conservative Leg. He Lost big time.
Ford, Dole and McCain were weak on all three legs though weaker on some than others.

GHW Bush (Senior) Was a strong Conservative on all three legs and won his first election. But the MSM and Democrats softened him over his first term such that he broke his famous “Read my lips no new taxes” pledge. He thus lost a leg and the election.

GW Bush was conservative as a Governor then as a Candidate both terms. He flirted with liberalism but repented and came back strong for second election. Soon after winning the election he became a total RINO. We lost many seats in 06 because of this. We lost more in 08 because of this it was an unmitigated disaster.

But Mitt supporters are trying to ignore all of this history. Just like the Democrats they seem to believe failed policies of the past will work in the future. They even use the tactics of lies and deceptions in their Mitt adds. They are playing here and are the most false ads I have ever seen. None of them say one positive thing about Mitt. Just vote for Mitt Santorum is the devil (in so many words).

Explain to me why the entire history of the Republican Party says Mitt has not a single chance of winning the general yet he will most likely be our nominee.

Is this race one that we can just blow off? I thought it very important am I wrong?

That’s nonsense. It will be the fault of the candidate not to get the message out and/or the fault of the LSM for, well, being the LSM, which in turn is our fault for not fighting back and letting them get away with it. Again.

All the successful candidate needs to do is parrot the following:

- are you better off than you were four years ago?
- do you like higher gas prices and food prices?
- do you have a job?

That should be all the person needs to say. To think that Gingrich has anything to do with that in October… well… are you getting the diversionary excuses ready in advance?

gerrym51 on March 26, 2012 at 7:30 PM

If Romney is such a strong candidate why he needs other to drop to get the needed delegates, he is pathetic ,he is weak he is liberal and even if he was the only candidate he will still be struggling that is the fact , face it GOP and don’t rush in nominating a RINO and take the risk of giving Obama 4 more years.
Newt should stay in the race he is the one who is not cracking under pressure like Tina’s precious Santorum, no matter what bad photos of Newt you use .

Romney should have been sincere from the get-go and say he never was that interested in political philosophy when he was govenor of Mass and he would go along with stuff that he now sees as bad policy.

Still running purely out of spite, nothing more. He’s not going to be part of that “conversation”…he’s running third in the delegate count and has only won 2 states.

Time to let it go, Newt.

changer1701 on March 26, 2012 at 8:05 PM

Yep, I have thought this for months now. People are crazy to think that the Mass. health care reform will be a burden to Romney in the general. If anything, it will be a benefit.

Unless they live in Mass., most voters aren’t going to care AT ALL about the specifics of health care reform in that state. As long as Romney can make the case against Obamacare (and, if needed, explain how it is different than what Mass. did), he is going to be in a good position. Luckily, Romney is a pro at doing both.

It’s funny reading some of these unstable commenters on here screeching about how Mass. health care reform means that Romney will be a socialist president. I don’t mean to be rude about it, but the fact that many of these commenters have admitted to voting for Santorum (?!) and believe Santorum could win in a general election should tell you all you need to know about their judgement.

Such effrontery garnered a response from me (albeit futile) telling him to get his hand out of my pants.

Newt’s staying in the race purely for historical reasons. And to underline Sarah Palin’s good judgement.

Basilsbest on March 26, 2012 at 9:00 PM

Newt is 1000% right to stay in the race unless Romney pins down the necesary number of delegates to be nominated on the first ballot. Newt is the one who is making Obama react with respect to energy policy. Newt is the one with a command of the substantive issues. Newt is the one Romney and Santorum are refusing to debate because they could never beat Newt that way.

Those who say that Romney is the guy to take on ObamaCare are kidding themselves. RomneyCare provided the blueprint for ObamaCare, and Romney has never repudiated RomneyCare. Obama will be able to use RomneyCare to take the issue of ObamaCare away from the Republicans.

Those who say Romney is the most electable are also kidding themselves. What will defeat Obama is articulate conservatism, and the best in the race on that score is by far Newt. Romney is not a real conservative; his record as Masachusetts Governor is at best described as moderate to liberal: higher taxes and fees, more Government regulations, pro-abortion stance, Democrats appointed to the state judiciary, RomneyCare and skyrocketing health care costs. If Romney is nominated, you will see him shake the Etch-A-Sketch and go moderate. That is a losing strategy.

Those who argue that the GOP needs to go moderate in the general election to win are wrong. If that were true, Reagan would never have been elected.

If Republicans lose in November with Romney at the head of the ticket, then Romney, the Republican establishment and those in the media who have been Romney cheerleaders will be to blame and will have h-ll to pay, no one else.

Mitt passed the same thing so he can say what he did was wrong.

Problem is Mitt has consistantly said Romney Care was great.

Thus it is totally hollow when he says Obama Care is not. It is the same program. If it is right in Mass it is right for the Nation. It is wrong every time it is tried.

Mitt has no credibility on anything period. Etch-A-Sketch does not inspire confidence.

This gentleman appears to be a strong Sen. Santorum supporter. You ever so subtle whine is totally lost on him.

Totally agree.

A candidate must actually run and get voters to vote for them to win the election. The convention choosing someone other than Mitt or Rick would be worse than either of those two for the party.

Though Sarah Palin could possibly win as she is conservative. Every conservative we have ever nominated has won the General. Every single one. Thus she could possibly win. But it would greatly damage the party.

Every centerist/moderate has lost. Every single one no exceptions even Goldwater that was very conservative on fiscal and military lost because he was moderate on social leg.

I guarantee Mitt will lose if nominated.

Ah Peggy 24/7 in your mind…
Get bored with ganging up on BD with your high school friends and childish insults?

Newt is a jackass. In the political sense. He is just helping the Democrats.

Good on Newt, staying in until/if the nom is definitely decided by the delegate count. Too bad Gingrich, the most qualified candidate to beat Obama and right this sinking ship, was palinized by the Obama media and the republican establishment/Romney media.
The ultimate gift to the democrats is a Romney nomination; he doesn’t stand a chance with Romneycare/Obamacare hanging around his neck.

How so? You’re buying RINO’s latest round of early excuses after they realized all too late that Romney was not the answer after all? And now cry on TV how others are responsible for eventual Romney’s loss?All too predictable, of course, we saw this show back in 2008, too bad some still believe this BS, grown ups at that. They forced the lying pretend moron on us, when he loses to Hussein in November it is nobody’s but their own fault. Too late to look for scape goats.

I get a kick out of the morons who call Gingrich a jackass. Rino Romney (aka Obama-Lite) is your quintescential LIAR and 1%er. IF, however unfortunate, Willard (from the RAT movie of the same name), gets the nomination, he will have only achieved it by BUYING it and LYING, LYING, LYING, as proven in Florida and Iowa before that (see “What Really Happened to the Gingrich Ethics Case?” by Byron York, Townhall.com, 2/6/2012)!@?! As horrible and bad as Obastard is, Willard (from the RAT movie of the same name) will be nearly as bad. Nice goin’, STUPID Party!?!
