    Wasn't he behind in PA? He probably wanted to avoid being embarrassed, and I'm not saying that to insult him.

    It was a combination....he didn't want to spend money he didn't have to lose his home state in a race that he statistically couldn't win anyway. Plus the GOP heirarchy had had enough.

    Well, that just leaves Gingrich and Paul. Gingrich finally got what he wanted...but its way too late for him to do anything.

    Well, if there was ever a "presidential mold" in terms of personal appearance, Romney fits it.

    Obama certainly doesn't so that shows how much that matters, eh?

    The whole media narrative from here on out will be that the Primary is over and no longer worth reporting on. Of course, things won't work out that neatly down in Tampa when everybody discovers that Romney doesn't actually have the delegates they claim he does.

    He already lost his home state. He wasn't even on the ballot in DC.

    Yeah I'm sure that's where Ron Paul will steal the nomination.

    I love the Onion.

    Gingrich Urges Romney To Drop Out So He Can Focus On General Election



    RALEIGH, NC—Following Rick Santorum's announcement Tuesday that he would end his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, candidate Newt Gingrich called upon frontrunner Mitt Romney to drop out of the race so the former House speaker could concentrate on the general election. "While I respect my challenger's right to fight through to the bitter end, the time has now come to unite behind one man so we can take back the White House in November," said Gingrich, addressing a crowd of 35 supporters at the Raleigh County Public Library. "My opponent should be congratulated on running a fine campaign. But I need him to swallow his pride, come back to reality, and tell all Republicans to throw their support behind Newt Gingrich as the next president of the United States." Gingrich noted that Romney's withdrawal would bolster Gingrich's fundraising efforts as he seeks to eliminate some of the $4.5 million in debt he has amassed thus far in his victorious campaign.

    I would be astonished if that actually happened. It'd be like seeing a talking cat or something.
    No. Romney will be the nominee one way or another. The Party machine will see to it.

    Good for him. I grew up in the town where he went to High School and I can't find a soul that was going to vote for that "person"
