Santorum & Gingrich Want Obama as President for Five More Years — Truth Revealed by History & Logic — Powerful Video Indeed!

Santorum and Gingrich seem determined to repeat history and hand the election over to Obama for a second term. And nobody knows history better than Mr. Gingrich (Santorum does not seem to care about history and would that we all believe what he says and just vote for him).

Over the years, I have not been a big fan of Dick Morris as he always seemed to me to have similar DNA to that of Gingrich, Blagojevich, and Trump — that of possessing stratospheric levels of self-esteem, leading to frequent bouts of condescending rhetoric. But I must admit, his analysis these last several months has been quite reasonable, measured, intelligent, and spot-on (what has gotten into him?!!).

There have been four conventions with since 1960 with “floor fights” — two Democrat and two Republican (’64, ’68, ’72, and ’76). In all four cases, the resulting nominee lost the general election!

Both Santorum and Gingrich now know they cannot win the nomination by garnering enough delegates outright with the remaining schedule of states in the primary cycle. Their only hope?

To force a floor fight at the end of August, which leaves virtually no time to take the fight to Obama before the November election. History is totally on Obama’s side if Republicans opt for a floor fight at the convention — Obama knows it; Santorum knows it; and Gingrich knows it. And since this is true, both Gingrich and Santorum (and any person that votes for either of them) effectively acknowledge they want Obama to be President in a second term.

Listen carefully to the simple logic laid out here by Morris about voting in Alabama and Mississippi:

Four years ago, I was an ardent supporter of Governor Romney, fully expecting him to win against Huckabee and McCain. Even when the trend was for McCain to win, I wanted nothing more than for Governor Romney to take it all the way to the convention and force the showdown. Absolutely!

Instead, he did the right thing. He stood down and went all out in support of McCain — becoming his strongest surrogate — even raising $20 million for him! Why? Governor Romney decided to do everything within his influence to unify all Republicans early behind the obvious winner in order to build the strongest campaign possible against the Democrat nominee. Like millions of Romney supporters, I was very disappointed. I wanted to go all the way and fight it out, knowing that my candidate was the right candidate. What would Mitt do in this very situation? We know what Mitt did!

Quoting Dick Morris from this video clip:

“This fight is over!” “It’s over.”

“Anybody who votes for Gingrich or Santorum in Mississippi, Alabama, Missouri, or Illinois is basically voting for a deadlocked convention.”

“Vote for Romney now…Why? Because I want to beat Obama, and you can’t do that if you go to into the convention without a candidate. Not if your convention is the last week of August.”

“It’s over. We’ve made our choice. Romney has 54% of the delegates at this point.

What drives Santorum and Gingrich at this point, when they know that their only chance is a knock-down, dragged-out fight at the convention? For they know that the result of that process is sure victory for Obama and the probable loss of more Senate and House seats. Obviously, Gingrich and Santorum are highly motivated to stay in the race through the convention, for they have said as much. What then is their motivation?

Ego? Revenge? Bigger book sales down the road? I would like to give them the benefit of the doubt. Four years ago at this time in the cycle, Governor Romney was in full campaign mode in support of our party’s candidate. Governor Romney fully subordinated his ego and personal ambition at that time and went to work! And you know what? He worked harder than any other surrogate on the campaign trail for John McCain! Look it up.

The title of this article states that Senator Santorum and Speaker Gingrich want Obama to be President for five more years. I do not believe they do. However, their desire to do whatever they can to take the Republican race to a floor fight at the convention in late Summer will certainly seal the deal for Obama and they know it. Those who vote for them at this point, know it as well.

If it is true that they do not want Obama to have a second term as President, then they are motivated by something other than solid Republican principles — indeed, they are driven by ulterior motives not associated with the best interests of this great nation.

    Let’s get the vote out for Romney. Santorum turning his back on Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xutxQugsoZs

    Let’s remind our friends in the Gulf states and around the country how Santorum voted against sending aide to the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.

    A creative person could make a POWERFUL ad w/this information!

    PAC group………..????????

    Santorum’s motives are suspect at best the longer this goes on.

    Whatever his “motives”…….they are NOT about the GREATER GOOD of our country and changing the WH occupant.

  3. Frozone says:

    Great video. Thanks for posting.

    Indeed, Santorum will not “take one for the team” here, will he?

  4. Jim Tills says:

    It will be interesting to see results from Mississippi and Alabama and Hawaii. Mitt Romney is the best candidate we have had running for POTUS in the past 100+ years. Will the American people rise to the challenge to elect him? They rose up in times past led by God’s hand (i.e. Washington, Lincoln).

    Mitt Romney is disciplined, smart, conservative, skilled and experienced in turn-arounds—exactly what we need at this critical juncture in our history. George Washington was inspired by God at a critical time and accepted the Presidency handed to him; Lincoln was brought to the fore at a critical time; and now Romney has been brought forward at the most critical time in our history since the last wars on our soil. Will the American people follow the Spirit that God provides and choose this man over the tragic opposite that sits in the President’s chair? I devoutedly pray so!

    Yes, Santorum and Gingrich should bow out now or else they show their total unworthiness to ever become POTUS. My opinion is that if they do not and Obama gets reelected, they may never have a chance to become such; that’s how critical this election is!

    @Nell Stefanik
    You are being very generous. Gingrich has so much baggage,he needs a fleet of Greyhound buses to carry it around.

    Santorum is a sanctimonious hypocrite. One of the Catholic Church’s top theologian sent him a reprimand a couple of weeks ago to call him on whatever phony theology he is spouting it is NOT Catholic. Santorum’s motives?? Perhaps he did not like sitting on the sidelines.

    My neighbor, a retired Army Ranger, invited me to have lunch with his family over President’s day weekend with him, his wife, and his son, an active duty Army Ranger on leave. When Santorums name came up while discussing the 2012 elections, the son said “Santorum?” “He’s a Crotch Conservative’ Never having heard the term I said “A what?”. The son said “Look if you check his voting record and the way he made money, he is no conservative. Santorum has his nose in everyone’s crotch, worried about what they will do with it. And he and his wife expect the American taxpayer to support whatever is issued from their crotches. So yes, a Crotch Conservative. At least that’s what they call him on base.” It took me a few hours to realize the young Army Ranger had let us know in a unique way, that apparently the military is not in favor of Santorum as their CnC.

    Whatever, I am of the firm opinion neither of these men should ever hold a high elective office. Neither of them is entirely sane.

  6. Nell Stefanik says:

    This is good information. Please ask everyone to make it go viral on the web.

    And thank you all for this website. Just found it this morning but better late than never. All of you are so logical and sane. In the last 2 months, I have looked on the web in horror at the mass deterioration of common sense and education in this country. Good to know there is a place I can come to revive my belief in my fellow Americans.

  7. Graham says:

    Nell, we’re so glad to have you aboard. The mods put a lot of effort into making sure the comment threads and chat room are all constructive. Nice to know it’s appreciated!

  8. AfricansforRomney says:

    I love Clintonian defactos. Dick Morris is a classic defacto.
    Santourm & Obama something in common, very different objectives. Both are waging war on women, waging war on religon. Santorum/Obama are taking GOP party into sucidal mission. Surprisingly, I don’t hear from the GOP leaders any concerns at all except McCain and Trump.
    Santourm is brainwashing the conservative base at the same time he’s leaving incorrect, bad perception about Gov Romney. He’s traveling in a very dangerous path. Gingrich is a very smart guy but, this point he’s very wounded. I think he’s just waiting until he drains out his sugar daddy $$$$$…

    Santourm=Landslide victory for Obama

    Independents for Romney!!!

  9. Jean says:

    Rick Santorum is not campaigning, I am sure he considers this a crusade. I have seen no evidence that he is capable of dealing with the challenges of the whole United States, let alone the critical
    challenges of the whole world. It would be an nightmare to see him trying to deal with the Palestinian – Israeli situation, or to meet with any of the powerful leaders throughout Russia, China,
    Egypt, India, Pakistan, etc. etc. I am sure Santorum is a great family man and a religious man but he just doesn’t have the powerful presence or skill to confront Barack Obama, let alone Putin. I hope that, before it is too late, Newt can get over his anger and humiliation about the exposure of his past, and that Santorum will soon realize that popularity does not bestow wisdom or power of discernment, or international respect.

  10. Jean says:

    Romney is our only chance to go against Obama. It would be a big mistake to have a brokered convention and pick someone who didn’t compete in primary. Brokered convention undermines the choice of voters. Anyone who didn’t have the gut to compete during primary shouldn’t be nominated. Primary is the vetting process of a candidate and we don’t know the background of the nominee that didn’t participate in this process. The candidate who has the most delegates should be the nominee. Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are not to be trusted. Their voting records show the opposite of what they claimed. Why would anyone want lobbyist for President??? Unfortunately, these evangelicals are blinded by their own bias against anyone who is not Christian. To them, living a clean and successful life, being a good person, wise, etc. mean nothing if one doesn’t belong to their club but if one is a member of their club, one can do anything (all will be forgiven.) There are so many of non-Christians who contribute to the success of this country but they will be thought of as second citizens by these evangelicals standard. It is very sad!!!

  11. Jean: You wrote above:

    “Unfortunately, these evangelicals are blinded by their own bias against anyone who is not Christian.”

    I inferred from what you wrote above that you think Gov. Romney is not Christian. He is a Christian. He belongs to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Jesus Christ is the center of his religious faith. There have been several instances during his 2007-08 campaign as well as the 2011-12 campaign in which he has stated (and was quoted) that he accepts “Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior” among other references to the basic Christ-centered beliefs he holds dear.

    You may have been referring to their “brand” of “Christian” which I understand and which pundits sometimes attempt to describe — usually poorly.

    An interesting note is that the earliest Baptists in America were persecuted by many “Christians” and were considered heretics by many “Christians” as not the purist of Christians. Ironic indeed.

  12. Troy says:

    I understand how it’s easy to conclude that Rick and Newt want Obama in because they are not taking the more united approach towards beating the Democrat like Romney did in 2008. I don’t agree that both want Obama even if you pointed out to them what you state in your article. Above everything else, they want to be president and they believe it will be different this time around. In other words, we can have a battle at the convention and if Santorum somehow gets the nod, he strongly believes he will beat Obama. He doesn’t see the hole it’s putting the party in. They’re truly myopic and blinded by their own ambition. Neither is willing to look at the big picture–getting rid of Obama–when their overriding priority is to be president.
    I also heard a sound bite from Newt today and it’s clear how much he hates Romney. Santorum is asking him to bow out so the conservatives unite and Newt says “I’m not going to get out because Romney wants me to, or his super pac wants me to, or his wealthy contributors want me to. ” He says nothing about the guy who most directly and repeatedly urged him to bow out–Santorum. So with Newt, his disdain for Mitt and his desire to bring Mitt down completely blinds him from seeing what’s best for the party.

    Santorum would rather have Romney than Obama. I’m not sure about Newt.

  13. oechsleana says:

    Thanks for showing up Romney supporters. It’s nice to know I’m not alone here.

  14. Pamela Lents says:

    When I see Santorum acting snarky and arrogant and desperately contriving to inpugne Romeny as not being a conservative it reminds me that the Pennsylvania taxpayers paid for Santorums childrens education. When the state asked for money back to cover the cost,he refused. He arrived in Washington worth about $200,000. Today he is worth over 3 million. Insider trading? Who knows but something is fishy. Just because something is legal does not mean it is ethical. Romeny is not your run of the mill politician. I think that is why people don’t like him. He does not act like the usual politician. He has done well financially, he is loyal to his religious convictions, KEEP THE SABOTH HOLY.
