Rick Santorum Drops Out Of US Presidential Race! by Nobody: 9:28pm On Apr 10, 2012
Do a Google search for 'Santorum' and the 3rd, sometimes 2nd result you'll see is a dictionary definition: "The frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of änäl sex." This is as a result of is anti-gay statements in his bid for republican presidential nomination. But wait, seems like änäl sex's going to be 'clean' again!

Thd devout catholic, and father of 7 is . . . wait for it . . . dropping out of the presidential race, according to major news sources. Here's Reuters' take on it:

GETTYSBURG, Pennsylvania (Reuters) -
Conservative Rick Santorum dropped out of the presidential race on Tuesday, clearing the way for former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney to clinch the Republican nomination.

Trailing Romney in opinion polls and fundraising, the former senator from Pennsylvania told reporters he was suspending his campaign. That effectively ends his bid to be the Republican who will face President Barack Obama in the November 6 general election.

A staunch social conservative, Santorum was an underdog who clawed his way to near the top of the Republican race and won the first nominating contest in Iowa by a whisker. His influence forced the issues of birth control and the role of Christianity in public life to the forefront of the campaign.


"Over and over again we were told 'Forget it, you can't win.' We were winning, but in a different way, we were touching hearts, we were raising issues that frankly a lot of people didn't want to have raised," he said at a news conference at a hotel near the Civil War battlefield site of Gettysburg.


Santorum proved to be a more formidable opponent to Romney than many expected, especially in light of a stinging defeat in his Senate re-election bid in 2006. His conservative appeal offered voters a stark contrast with Romney's more moderate record.

Santorum was lagging Romney in opinion polls and in the fight for the 1,144 party delegates needed to win the nomination. He was facing the possibility of an embarrassing defeat in his home state of Pennsylvania on April 24.


A devout Catholic with seven children, Santorum failed to stretch his appeal far enough beyond conservatives and some blue-collar Republicans to be able to overtake Romney.

Santorum spoke to Romney on Tuesday but did not announce an endorsement of the front-runner or either of the other two Republican candidates, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich, both of whom are way behind Romney in polls.


"Mr. Santorum brought excitement to the race, and helped the GOP mobilize voters earlier in the season.Now much of the electorate will tune out until the fall. His delegates will now be open at the convention, but will likely support Mitt Romney," Hunter College Political Science Professor Jamie Chandler said.

Jeel: Will the Republican have a chance against Obama?
No they do not have a chance. But expect a lot of propaganda, lies, twisted truth, half-facts, simplified realities and more from the Romney camp. Especially the multi-billion dollar Super Packs backing him and those other corporations that profit anytime there is war.

Its going to be messy and painful to watch. But I believe Obama will survive it.

The President of the United states (POTUS) is the most important political office holder in the world.So,it makes common sense for people around the world to want to know who will assume/or is interested in assuming that position.

Chei! Now the Tea Baggers will cue behind a Mammon and a Flip-Flopping Moderate grin

Apart from the lesser state of the economy and them throwing unverifiable terms like the "Marxist", "Socialist", and other garbage at Obama - I must suck to be a Conservative Republican.
