Conservatives Must Unite


GOP 2012

Mitt Romney is again beginning to be the anointed to win the Republican nomination for President among the MSM and Conservative pundits. This is not pleasing to me; however the reality is people are looking at the present numbers and the potential future.

 

It is my opinion that it is not too late for Conservatives to have a GOP candidate other than Mitt Romney. What is standing in the way for that Conservative nominee? That would be the political egos of Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. It is time for Santorum and Gingrich to make a Conservative deal that might run something like a President/Vice President deal. According to the numbers the logical deal would be Santorum as President and Gingrich as Vice President.

 

As it stands to date according to the WSJ Delegate Counter:

 

Romney: 415

 

Santorum: 176

 

Gingrich: 105

 

Paul: Not a chance in H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks

 

If Santorum and Gingrich unite at this point the delegate count for Conservatives is 281.

 

Undoubtedly Romney will score more delegates in the future; however if a Santorum/Gingrich team worked together there is the chance they could catch up at least and at worst keep Romney from acquiring 1144 delegates to win the nomination outright. I believe the Conservatives at the Convention would take over and select another candidate other than Romney which would undoubtedly honor a Santorum/Gingrich deal.

 

Without deals, Romney will be the next GOP nominee for President.

 

Dan McLaughlin over at RedState.com kind of brings the numbers and reality together in a post.
