— Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination, clearing a path for Mitt Romney to become the nominee.

The former Pennsylvania senator was speaking Tuesday in his home state of Pennsylvania, two weeks before the GOP presidential primary there. Santorum faced a tough fight in his home state against Romney.

Romney was far ahead of Santorum in the race for delegates to the Republican National Convention. Santorum had previously said he wouldn’t drop out of the race, though he has acknowledged he will have to win Pennsylvania if his campaign were to survive.

Sorry, but didn't he suspend his campaign shortly after he couldn't remember the third cabinet position he would abolish after he became President or was he the one who believed women were best suited for being barefoot and pregnant? Now that I've had time to think about it really matters not!

That was the "other Rick" as in Tejas who couldn't recall cabinet office to can. The
"other Rick" was the chosen one for TWENTY ARK Teabagging Legislators.
.
This is a sad day for theocrats all over the land from sea to shining dungeon.
.
Now Romney gets to wear his magic temple undergarments and debate Ron Paul.
Magic Temple Undergarments protect like nothing else.

@LazyBar: How do you starve a fundamentalist conservative? Hide their 501(c)3 and untaxed dividends in their Bible. Love, an Obama supporter who likely has a higher ETR than you. By the way, I think I've heard that joke before but it wasn't directed at "Obama Supporters." Racist much?

Also, I'm very disappointed in this news. Now who's going to come in our bedroom at night to mediate relations with our partners?

Lazybar, I said higher ETR. A higher Effective Tax Rate--a higher percentage of income subjected to taxes. I do pay taxes (quite a bit more than my peers, in fact) as I'm a single middle class earner with no dependents, with no eligibility for any tax credits. My point was to demonstrate that the perception of Obama supporters as unemployed welfare junkies is blatantly false.

"My point was to demonstrate that the perception of Obama supporters as unemployed welfare junkies is blatantly false." That may be true, however Obama is playing to that demographic very heavily.
