Romney Endorsements Roll In After Santorum Concession

I think that's fairly accurate. One question is what could/should Paul have done to reel in his supporters who were annoying everybody by stuffing straw polls, spamming, and just being obnoxious. -------------------------------- Just my opinion... He should have publicly disavowed any and all association with certain supporters, hired more eloquent and thoughtful staffers to aid in his internet campaign, and been far more aggressive yet simplistic in conveying his platform. Ron Paul is far more talented and intelligent than his campaign might suggest.

You just don't get it. The last thing Ron Paul has *ever* wanted is to win.

He desires to enrich his family. This year, he is the highest score among the nepotism ratings. He has directed, by far, the highest percentage of his donations and contributions to his extended family. By far.

Ron Paul is not any sort of philosopher or leader. He is a guy of the old school, determined to enrich his family on the contributions of his adle-brained followrs. And that is exactly what he is accomlishing going into his retirement.

You are a rube, Thump. The most exalted of rubes. A Ron Paul rube.

Good news for de facto Republican nominee Mitt Romney: several more prominent conservative politicians threw their support behind him today...but they waited until after Rick Santorum's concession speech.

Now that's what I call, er...conviction?

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Penn.) and Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal (R) are among the Republicans who threw their support to Mitt Romney immediately after Rick Santorum announced he was ending his campaign.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Florida governor Rick Scott (R) also endorsed Romney quickly after Santorum dropped out of the race.

Iowa governor Terry Branstad (R) endorsed Romney just moments before...
