Rick Frothy Pulls Out

Rick Santorum called Mitt Romney Tuesday to say he is ending his presidential campaign.
He made an announcement at a press conference in Gettysburg, Pa., at 2 p.m.

He's officially out because his three year old daughter has pneumonia - and Medical Science willing - will hopefully pull through. 

This isn't over. Now he's open to be the VeeP. 
“Of course. I mean, look. I would do in this race as I always say, this is the most important race in our country’s history. I’m going to do everything I can. I’m doing everything I can. I’m out there. In the last 10 months, I’ve had five days off. Two for Thanksgiving, and three for Christmas. I’ve been working every single day. My wife and my kids, we’re just busting our tail, because we know their future and all of our childrens’ future is at stake in this election and I don’t want to be the guy who has to sit with my granddaughter, 20 years from now, and tell stories about an America where people once were free. I don’t want to have that conversation,” Santorum said in an interview with CBN’s David Brody.
Asked if he’s keeping his options open, Santorum responded, “I’ll do whatever is necessary to help our country.”

Rick - stay by your daughter's side. Please. That's how you can help everyone.

Goodbye, Rick. As much as I find you repellent, hypocritical, hateful, and sometimes outright dishonest, I don't wish you any harm. May many happily married gay couples hug you whenever you turn up in public.

The race drops to a deuce as Santorum's surge finally leaks out.

Probably a good career move if he wants to run again in 2016. It would have been embarrassing if he were to lose the primary in his home state of Pennsylvania in a few weeks.

Plus, there will be tons of people who think he's only stopping his 2012 campaign because of his sick daughter and look at him even more favorably in 2016 for being the "family" candidate, who gave up being President to take care of his family.

Looks like RNC chairman Reince Priebus is (predictably) agreeing.

"We all know Rick as a dedicated family man. Throughout his political career, he has said he is a 'father first.' In his presidential campaign, Rick has stayed true to his values, always putting his duties as father and husband above all."
