What are the Differences Between Perry, Bachmann and Gingrich?

 

What are the differences between Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Newt Gingrich? This is the thought that came to mind after Super Tuesday and this Tuesday’s results. The answer came rather quickly and really frustrated me. Both Perry and Bachmann could have chosen to stay in the race longer and kept fighting to win the nomination. But they obviously saw something much larger then the glory of becoming the next President of the United States.

They saw the ultimate goal of all Conservatives alike; to defeat Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination and go on to defeat Barack Obama for the Presidency. They understood and accepted the fact that Romney would win the nomination if the Conservative vote remained divided. Like the great Patriots they are and with great humility, they dropped out of the race. For that, many other Conservatives and I are very grateful.

It baffles me to see the complete lack of Patriotic honor, humility and respect for the Conservative movement that Newt Gingrich is displaying by staying in this race. My honest opinion is that Newt should have dropped out back in January when Perry and Bachmann did. That would have been the noble and Patriotic thing to do in my eyes.

Instead Newt has chosen to stay in this race and split the Conservative vote between him and Rick, which in the long run could enable Mitt Romney to walk away with the GOP nomination. Newt is pleased with himself for winning in South Carolina and his home State of Georgia but he has failed to seal the deal in the deep South and instead Rick Santorum, a Yankee from Pennsylvania won Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi.

When we take a look at the sheer numbers and results it makes absolutely no sense for Gingrich to stay in other than for the satisfaction of his own ego. Let’s take a look at the numbers.

If Newt would have dropped out after February 7th and handed the torch to Santorum he would have most likely defeated Mitt. Even if only 75% of Newts votes went to Rick and 25% went to Mitt, Santorum still would have squeaked out a win.

So as you can see there is not much evidence for Newt to continue with the race because Santorum is receiving the popular vote among Conservatives and Newt is actually hurting the Conservative’s by dividing our voting power. This is enabling Romney to run away with wins he would otherwise not get if Newt would drop out.

Above you can see a Delegate Tracker with totals from the Wall Street Journal and CNN. These numbers are the majority of what is out there accept for a few sites that actually have Newt with more Delegates than Santorum. Either way, Rick Santorum is doing much better than Newt Gingrich in this race for the Republican nomination and every indication shows that Newt should drop out to unite the Conservative vote.

It would be ludicrous for Newt to ask Rick to drop out based on these results along with the fact that Ricks Campaign just raised $1 million in the past 24 hours since his Southern Sweep. In light of all this, I think it’s safe to say that ego or something maybe worse is behind Newt’s decision to stay in. I really don’t know what it would take for Gingrich to come to his senses and respond to the higher calling but I hope it happens sooner than later.

here are some answers to some of the rumors against Santorum.

Rick can’t win against Obama: Rick can win against Barack Obama mainly because he has God on his side; plus millions of Conservative voters that have God on their side. Santorum is a stark contrast to Obama and is the true Conservative alternative. Rick defeated an incumbent Democrat in a 3:1 district and won a re-election for a second term. He then defeated another incumbent Democrat to take the Senate in a very blue State and also won a re-election to serve a second term. So all in all Rick has defeated Democrats in 4 elections and can do it again.

Rick also has the most consistent record compared to the other candidates. Rick can reach the blue collar Americans to win key States like Ohio and Pennsylvania. He can win votes from Reagan Democrats, Blue Dogs, Moderates and Independents, because he’s done it before. Rick has the best plan to turn around our economy and has the track record to show he can get things done. Check out Ricks First 100 Days Economic Freedom Agenda.

Rick is not popular with women: According to the exit polls in Alabama, Santorum’s results were better among women; in Mississippi women were divided between Santorum and Romney. In both States Gingrich did less well with women voters than with men.

Rick is being set up by the Democrats because they believe he is the weakest Candidate: First off, these are the tactics of Liberals and we should not be falling into their traps. The information is coming from people like Mother Jones and Dan Savage, who hate Rick Santorum and everything he stands for. They are trying to create an atmosphere of division among Conservatives by lying about Rick and making false claims that the only reason he’s winning States is because Democrats are voting for him because he is the weakest link. For starters based on the exit polls in Alabama only 6% said they were democrats; in Mississippi only 4% said they were Democrats therefore exposing these rumors to be nothing more than a trap set by the Left.

I encourage you to do your own research instead of relying on just the mainstream media or here say from someone else. One thing that has been sticking out to me is that we need to also be mindful of who we replace Obama with.

I would love to hear your feedback.
