Newt Gingrich Drops Out of the Race: Upsetting or Anticlimactic?

Realistically, Newt Gingrich hasn't really been "in the running" for president for the last few months, but the presidential hopeful held on to the GOP candidacy longer than Mitt Romney's primary contender, Rick Santorum. Maybe he was holding out for a freak accident, or maybe there were some behind-the-scenes reasons for prolonging his candidacy. Whatever the case, it's over now. Gingrich officially put an end to his 2012 presidential run.

He made the announcement in a hotel ballroom near Washington, D.C., but didn't sound too enthusiastic about Romney. He said, "Today, I am suspending the campaign, but suspending the campaign does not mean suspending citizenship ... I'm asked sometimes, 'Is Mitt Romney conservative enough?' And my answer's simple: 'Compared to Barack Obama?' You know, this is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan, this is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history." Is the end of his "wild ride" of a campaign upsetting or anticlimatic?

    Anticipated, unsurprising, inevitable, about time, how did he ever become a serious consideration for nomination in the first place?!

    Santorum should have dropped out after South Carolina and before Florida. We have just nominated the most beatable candidate.

    Oh my what a bummer! I feel sooooo bad! NOT! Now if Mitt would drop out and leave Ron Paul with the nomination this country would be so much better off.

    He won't. He's impersonating a Conservative so he can win the votes of the sheep who call themselves Conservative. Behind all that wool is wolf. Only those who have done their research and firmly believe Ron Paul is a better candidate are true Conservatives.

    Another unelectable bites the dust.

    Ron Paul & Mitt Romney are also unelectable.

    Obama wins without lifting a finger.
