It’s time when to hold ’em and time when to fold ’em…

On 3/29, former President George H.W. Bush endorsed Mitt Romney— “I do think it’s time for the party to get behind Gov. Romney,” Bush said. “Kenny Rogers sang, ‘It’s time when to hold ’em and time when to fold ’em.’

It is indeed about time.

It’s time for Ron Paul to leave the race. He’s run a good campaign. He’s made many good points. However, he does not have enough delegates to continue.

It’s time for Newt Gingrich to go. On the way out, try not to make more stupid comments such as “Romney has to earn this”. Romney has earned it—565 delegates. Romney has earned it—since 2009, Romney has been actively helping to elect Republicans to the House and the Senate. Newt, on the other hand, has been an embarrassment to the party.

It’s time for Santorum to fold. Romney is leading in recent poll in WI by 8% and in MD by 17%. Santorum is not even on the ballot for Washington DC. On 4/4, Romney could win all 3 winner-take-all primaries in WI, MD and DC—a total of 98 delegates. That will leave Santorum further behind Romney in delegate count. However, the worst news for Santorum is that in a recent poll by Franklin and Marshall (3/20-3/25) for Santorum’s home state of PA, Romney is trailing Santorum by only 2%–a much improvement from 29% from the same poll a month earlier. Santorum has not added much to the GOP race this year. While economy is the biggest issue, he talked about contraception and abortion. While Obama is the biggest problem, he’d rather vote for Obama than Romney.

It is indeed about time.

Time to get on Obama’s records:

  • A bail out of the huge UAW contracts with the auto industry
  • 8.2% unemployed and 14.9% underemployed
  • Addition of over 4 trillion deficit in just 3 years 2010-2012
  • Robbing the Social Security Trust Fund of over 400 billion with his 2% Social Security Tax cut from 2009-2012—instead of 2% Federal Income Tax cut
  • Rejection of the Keystone XL Pipeline that could generate over 20,000 jobs while reducing the gas price
  • Most importantly, the rush passage of ObamaCare—with a potential cost of over trillion—that may be invalidated by Supreme Court in June any way. Never before, a bill that was rejected by so many Americans even before it was passed.
