Unsurprising:


Rick Santorum suspends presidential campaign

Rick Santorum suspended his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination, effectively giving Mitt Romney a clear path to be the party’s standard-bearer.

Santorum made his announcement in Gettysburg, Pa., just two weeks before the Keystone State primary. Recent Pennsylvania polls had Santorum in danger of losing the state where he was a senator for 12 years.

“We made the decision over the weekend that while this presidential race is over for me, and we will suspend our campaign effective today, we are not done fighting,” Santorum said. “We’re going to continue to fight for the Americans who stood up and gave us that air under our wings that allowed us to accomplish things that no political expert would have expected.”

Santorum did not mention Romney in his remarks, but said America needs “leaders … who are willing to give voice” to the greatness of the country and “willing to rise us up instead of trying to provide for us.”

“This game is a long, long, long way from over,” he said. “We are going to continue to go out there and fight to make sure that we defeat President Barack Obama, that we win the House back and that we take the United States Senate.”

I am certain that Mr Santorum is disappointed that the campaign has to end, just as the Pennsylvania primary is coming up, but this was inevitable. Now the question becomes: when will Newt Gingrich “suspend” his campaign?

  1. I think the way to fix this is having a mandatory special license that will require that the person applying for it has a previous license, either Real Estate, Mortgage etc, perhaps with a mandatory surety bond, if at the same time they create laws just like the laws that even send you to jail for working without a license, I bet there will be few people that will take a chance of going to jail, that way everyone who is legally license and knows what he/she is doing, will be accountable for their actions and the customers will be protected. As we all know it is imposible that the few lawyers that are working in this business can handle tha volume and we all know there is more to come. I am in South Florida and this problem is just getting out of hand.
