Republicans - A Two Man Race

With Senator Rick Santorum winning both Alabama and Mississippi, it is clearly turning into a two man race between him and Mitt Romney for the Republican Presidential nomination.   The notion that Romney's nomination is inevitable is beginning to shatter.  In addition, one other thing is for sure.   Newt Gingrich should absolutely pull out of the race NOW.  

Gingrich has won just two primaries out of about 20 primaries and caucuses.  Continuing in the race is starting to look like nothing more than a vendetta against Romney for Romney's negative ads that took Gingrich out early on.  As they say, politics is not bean bags; but it is starting to get dangerous for the Republican Party.     

Newt Gingrich has to go because now he is hurting the Republican Party and our chance of beating Socialist President Obama.   We need this race settled quickly, not at the convention in Tampa in August to have any chance of winning in November.   Mitt Romney also needs to learn a lesson from his losses and that is that negative advertisements against other Republicans is backfiring against him. 

It is time for Romney to cut it out and fight it out with Rick Santorum on the merits.  It is time for Reagan's 11th Commandant, "thou shall not speak badly of another Republican".   Believe me, the Socialists will sling plenty of mud and lies about our Republican candidate without our own candidates doing it too. 

If Mitt Romney does win the nomination, it is certainly looking like Rick Santorum will have earned the VP spot.   All these negative ads by Romney will make it that much more difficult to bury the hatchet when the time comes to unify the party.   A Romney/Santorum ticket could be just fine.   We need Social and Economic Conservatives along with Independents and Blue Collar Reagan Democrats to beat Obama.  A Romney/Santorum ticket could get us there. 

We have to take back our country in 2012 and 2014 to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States.  It is critical that our candidates aim all their criticism at Obama and his Socialist pals in government NOW in order for us to win in November.  We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.  

It looks like we will have a Romney/Santorum ticket.   Though I would have preferred a more Conservative candidate as our Presidential nominee, this Blogger can live with a Romney/Santorum ticket.  We need to move on and begin to focus on sweeping Socialists at all levels of government out of office.
