    yep, he's gone.

    He put up a great fight and worked his butt off. Have new respect for him. Never waffled, no weasel words, went house to house in Iowa. Never had to apologize for anything he said. Never took it for granted, just applied some honest labor.

    Even if you don't like him on certain views, he was an honest and decent guy. Hope his kid gets better soon. Though it should not have been the reason he got out, I mean what if one of his kids got sick while he was President and there was a crisis demanding his attention? Not good.

    Best of luck to him.

    Before the PA primary even? The numbers must have looked pretty bad!

    How exciting. Now we can sit back and watch the political battle between the guys who:

    *Obama who to implement a half-assed forced social medicine mandate and is rumored to be anti-second amendement.

    and
    *Romney who successfully implemented socialized medicine and is confirmed (through multiple votes) to be anti second amendment.


    Seems like the choice boils down to which of the two statists you want in power, the more experienced successful one or the current president.

    Obama/Romney - it's a win-win for the powers behind the scenes.

    For me, it's like the late William Buckley Jr. said.
    You always vote for the most conservative candidate.

    Romney was not my choice but he's definitely more conservative than Obama.

    Yeah, you're right Hamster. If the Dems can't get Obama in, there next choice is Romney. He's already said that he would pass the AWB (so there goes your semi-auto shotguns and rifles). And he said he didn't feel it necessary for people to CC. I think we are in for a bad 4 years, no matter who is elected.

    Yes he is. And he will most likely pull the anti Romney vote.

    If Romney is the man,watch out!
    4 more years of Obama.
    Our only hope is to still control the house and take control of the Senate

    This is a VERY interesting development for the huge amount of district and state delegate conventions still left. Will the Santorum delegates turn out even with him out of the race? Im not so sure. But the Paul and Romney delegates will definitely still show up so it'll be a fight between the two for the living breathing delegates.

    Im genuinely surprised Santorum dropped out. He has now used his daughter as an excuse twice to back out of losing contests though (FL and now PA I assume) so that doesnt surprise me. Can Ron Paul win Texas now? This is such an interesting development!

    I love the irony of his campaign ending at Gettysburg.

    The only way for Ron Paul to move from 4th to 3rd place
    was for Santorum to drop out.

    Oh yea, look out, Ron Paul's making his move!:rofl:

    Get out of the way, Ron Paul's coming through!:rofl:
