What is Ginghrich staying in the presidential race for when he know he will never win?

There is just one intelligent answer to that question, and it is not that his ego won't let him as the press has been saying.

Instead, it is - I believe - that he wants the nomination for the Vice Presidency; and he can get it if he gains enough delegates so that no one wins the nomination for presdent on the first ballot.

Should this happens, and it appears very likely that it will, he may then offer his support and delegates to Santorum in exchange for Santorum's selecting him for the Vice President's position!

We will see.

I was born very early in 1945 as an only child to a mother who was a school teacher, and to a father who was the Supervisor for Elementary Education for a large industrial northern state.

I was the very oldest student in most of my classes - 20+ years for my academic doctoral degree – and went to the campus school of the premier state university system from grades 7 through grade12.

I now have an academic doctoral degree, but I graduated 58th out of 62 students in high school! My “friends” went to Harvard, Yale, McGill, Cornell, Hamilton, Columbia, and so on. As a result, I thought I was rather unintelligent!

I went to small state university college in northern New York State, and only three girls didn’t go to a four year college because they got married instead.

The year I graduated from high school was 1963, and l had learned that the United States was the very best country in the whole-wide world, and for many reasons: from its scientific advancements, to its cherished human rights!

Things have radically and dramatically changed in this country since then, however. For example: from being first in the world in education in 1973, we are now 20 something and headed lower. We have no magnet trains going at over 200 mph, but Brazil, Europe, and Japan do; we are not rapidly developing alternative fuels, but many other countries have; and I can go on and on like this!

What has happened in this country to allow this to happen to US?

American corporations have just been ruled by the United States Supreme Court – by a 4 to 3 decision – to be considered as a “person” when their monetary contributions to a person’s campaign is considered!

In other words, corporations almost “own” the federal legislators now, but they will completely “own” their vote in the future by heavily controlling the money they receive for their election, or their re-election, bids! And by far most of the designated politicians are Republicans; and most of the votes voting for “Citizens United” on the Supreme Court were Republican Presidential nominees, as well!

Occupy Wall Street, or just plain “Occupy,” is attempting to have the House of Representatives start a Constitutional Amendment which would prohibit this unethical, this unfair, and hopefully in the future, this “Illegal” action from taking place!

Hopefully you will want this to happen as well, and then you will become somewhat involved in the rapidly growing “Occupy” movement in your local area!

Ohh, ohh, ohh,,,,,

The opposition to Romney - Santoum, Gingrich, and Paul - is within about 50 delegates of Romney, and closing rather rapidly.

I believe more than ever that it will be an open convention, and then Sister Sarah will ultimately be given the Republican Ding-bat nomination for President!!!

I think that Newt is staying in the presidential race for one important reason that no one in the press has addressed as yet - at least none that I have heard.

If you add the total delegates that are NOT Romney's, the race is well within a hundred delegates.
Gingrich and Santorum will do almost anything to stop Romnny from obtaining the nomination, because it is very much like he is from another political party from the one they are from. He is like Obama in soooo many ways!

They are not necessarily looking for a Santorum victory before the Republican Convention; they are looking for a tied up convention, instead.

If they can prevent Romney from winning on the first ballot, Romney is finished because he will never get more delegates voting for him on any further ballot.

Then someone will yell: SISTER SARAH, and the dye will have been cast!!!

Intelligent stuff folks!

Santorum is being encouraged to quit the primaries by some (regular) Republicans.

He will never win, you see.

Gingrich is being encourage to do the same thing, and then Romney will win the nomination.

I don't think that this is going to happen, however.

Both Gingrich and Santorum don't want Romney to win the nomination, because he is not in favor of the TEA Party mandates - today, anyway!!!

I believe they want the convention to go to a second ballot at least, and then "Sister Sarah" of the TEA Party will land the nomination!

We will see!

No, i would more tend to believe, it's Romney.....and that he was preselected, long ago. The primary process is pretty much, for show and to make their Stepford-like followers, actually think, they had a hand in the outcome.....Now, their problem would be twofold, first that Santorum and Gingrich, strange as they may seem, have given Romney more of a roughing up, than anyone in the GOP expected possible......Second, our country is going through a slow recovery(just what the doctor ordered, if it was too fast, we could crash again)....many economic indicators have been positive, month after month......this exposes their patriotism flaws, as in they refuse to acknowledge it, until they can take the presidency back......fascinating, eh?

There are really two political parties within the Republican Party: the regular Republicans, and then there are the TEA Party people.

Each needs the support of the other to win an election against a Democrat, and this is why the Republican Presidential Primaries continue to go on and on, when it is very clear now that Gingrich and/or Santorum can no longer win on the first ballot.

They may be able to stop Romney from winning on the first ballot, however, and therefore they will send the Convention into a second - and more - ballot.

Now many of the delegates who are required by law to vote for Romney on the first ballot, they are Ding-bat TEA party people, therefore on the second ballot they will vote for a TEA Party person.

I think that this will happen, and I also think that this new person will be "Sister Sarah"!
