☛"Santorum's endorsement torpedoes Romney and explodes Ron Paul's campaign!"

Santorum's so-called endorsement is going to TORPEDO Romney and EXPLODE Ron Paul's campaign.

This is just what Ron Paul needs, at the perfect time (well in advance of August) to be catapulted (without spending money) into the media spotlight.

The Democrat leaning media will give Ron Paul exposure because they feel it would help their beloved Obama to have the "GOP's presumptive nominee" getting cozy with right wing extremist, Rick Santorum.

In the process "The Message" will attract more Democrats, Independents and Republicans to support Ron Paul.

Santorum's move is such a glaring demonstration of his lack of any principle that he will set a multitude of fires burning among conservatives, liberals and those who have never participated in an election.

Brace yourself. The Tsunami is coming.

The title is misleading but I agree with the content.

My advice is to change the title.

"Santorum's endorsement torpedoes Romney and explodes Ron Paul's campaign", seems like a good title to me.

Happy now?

It was a suggestion but thank you. :)

Some people just don't get it.

While it was inevitable that Santorum would ultimately endorse Romney since he reiterated over and over again that if Romney was the nominee that he would back him (and it most likely looks to Santorum like Romney and not Paul will be the nominee), to say that this will help Ron Paul is naive and ridiculous. Republican primary voters don't watch the Democratic-leaning media that much. The more the liberal-leaning media reports positively on RP, the more on-the-fence Conservatives will tend to drift away from Paul. Before the Iowa primary, polls showed that far left liberals had almost as much of a favorable opinion of Paul as far right voters. It didn't help much because those far left voters that view Paul favorably 1. don't prefer Paul to Obama and 2. will NEVER register in the much-hated Republican Party.

This is a good observation. I personally know people who can never even think of supporting Ron Paul because Bill Mahar agreed with him 4 years ago. It's pathetic tribalism at it's worst but most republicans and most democrats are both more loyal to team red or team blue than to the actual beliefs or ideals of the candidates. It doesn't matter if Romney or Santorum are big government socialists and Ron Paul is like a founding father, real conservatives don't vote for people that liberals like, and vice versa.

When the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor

Did MSNBC Chuck Todd really mean that? What a stoodge!

You R so

You are so correct Eli However I would call him a IDIOT !

Watch "Animal House"

or find the clip on youtube.

Santorum's sheep will follow Romney

Obviously, the Romney, Santorum, and even Newt, followers have really demonstrated that they have little concern for Liberty, cessation of wars, solid monetary measures and real spending cuts. There is no other way to explain it. Maybe, and this would be even worse, they've been so conditioned to follow the leader as directed by the RNC. Ron Paul will thrive IF more people wake up to the FACT that he's the only guy who'll do ANYTHING to correct the 4 above mentioned problems.

The media has proven you

The media has proven you wrong so far.

This isn't going to torpedo anything...

Any candidate who has dropped out and tells their supporters to go for Romney instead of Paul is bad for us. We want those social conservatives, because we want them to wake up from their slumber, and because it will greatly help our cause.

I like to see the optimism, but this is a little on the delusional side, not to mention and, as commenters below have already pointed out, a misleading title.

Wonder what the Santorum

supporters are thinking/feeling?

I know if it were Ron Paul supporting Romney I would be heart-broken.

Anyone here care to share?

Really, you think they are thinking?

If they were capable of thoughtful consideration or reasoning would they have been frothy fans in the first place. This endorsement takes them off the hook, they no longer need to be principled, they could follow the herd like the rest with a clear heart because their fearless leader has said so.

That's not fair. While I

That's not fair. While I agree it takes a certain amount of dissonance to jump from Santorum to Ron Paul, not everyone gets the message right away. It takes time for some people because it seems too good to be true.

You must be asleep to have an awakening. I cringe when I think about some of the dumb shit that must have come out of my mouth.

All that matters is that you and I are here now.

Keep this in mind. The situation is very fluid.

No, the Dems know Romney

No, the Dems know Romney can't beat Obama and only Paul can. Why do you think they are trying to help the MSM create the narrative about Romney being the GOP nominee.

Dems are trying hard to get Romney the nomination.

Santorum's Delegates Question.

Not bothered about Santorum backing Romney. But does this mean that his campaign is now "over" as opposed to "suspended"? And if so what does this do for his delegates - can they now vote as they wish at Tampa?

Suspended means they quit but can't pay off their debt

Hillary's campaign for example is still just suspended from her shot last time around. Yes some nice person has paid off Newt and Rick's debt for them.

John Glenn ended his campaign for President in 2007

Back in 1984, Sen. John Glenn ran for president, but he didn't finish paying off his presidential campaign debt until 2007.

Source?

Could you please give a source for this info. That probably means that whoever paid Santorum's bills got this endorsment in return. So, it would be great to find out who paid the bills, it should be a public info, I guess?

The Romney campaign has

The Romney campaign has already said they would help santorum "retire" his debt

And I think the gop helped

To arms! To arms! The Redcoats are coming!

oh the irony

or hypocrisy .... a catholic telling evangelicals to vote for a liberal mormom bishop in order to preserve conservative Christian values.

Threats, bribes, whatever

it is time to speak of Romney's lack of principle.

if you really are concerned for those with lack of principle, then you should always have focused on those who lack principles the most and that happens to be romney and not any of the other conservatives that have run.

santorum's endorsement will do nothing for paul either way.

jj

huh???

"those who lack principles the most and that happens to be romney and not any of the other conservatives that have run"
WTF??
NONE (save Dr. Paul) had or have Principles.
NONE could qualify as 'Conservatives' either.
yer kinda off by 180 degrees here pal...
don't know what your point is...
and
Santorum's endorsement will SHOVE the Evangelicals
to re-examine their 'robotic' voting...
the 'clash' of FOX news telling them to vote Mormon
will be cognitive dissonance for them.
This is GREATLY to our advantage...
