I agree and Newt is 2nd in National polls was highest in national polls until MSM and tens of millions in lies took him down. He is close to Romney and far above rest in important southern NC which elected Obama last year. We need Gingrich who is ruling in Key states like his hometowns of GA & VA (also lost to Obama) and FL which just recently Gingrich slipped to 2nd after Romney's 3 weeks of attack ads there against him. All good leaders are master debaters. We need Gingrich his superior debating skills, his quick witt, his southern & military roots, his achievements, his solutions. No one is better!!
Newt 2012! He isn't afraid to crush media lies with facts either.
No politician alive has more conservative achievements then Newt Gingrich.. He is our Churchill/Reagan mix!!
Doesn't sound like he's endorsing mittens to me...
Hey, we all have out bloody-minded ideas. That's mine, I guess.
But I don't think Mitt can pull it off. Obama will walk in on the back of Romneycare. My magic 8-ball says so.
He just needs to come in second. He is second in delegate votes now, which would put him against Romney in the end, if he can maintain second place. Don't forget, the Iowa Caucus was a virtual tie, the closest in history. So, if they say no one has become president without winning either Iowa or NH, well, it was a virtual tie. He is still viable in my opinion.
Yes lets be disappointed when Gingrich tells the truth because it doesn't suit Rush and Levin. He tried running a positive campaign and was brought down by lies. What ever it takes I hope he uses it as long as it's the truth and with Romney it's not hard to find. Romney may not be an Obama clone but he sure operates in his shadow.
Fine Rio2010....your attack is exactly what I mean! All you are doing is keeping the Conservaitve message split. It is time to circle the wagons put the petty differences of the three COnservatives aside and concentrate on the strongest of the 3 Conservatives and that is Rick Santorum. Then make sure that we stay united to put a Conservative in as the GOP nominee!!!!!!!!!!
Romney is not the answer. He is a progressive just like the type currently in the White House. Romney is not Conservative by any reasoning.
He is a liberal moderate progressive Republican.....!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rampant Romney derangement syndrome on this blog. Romney will get the nod and easily beat Barry in November. And he will stop Obamacare.
He also said Palin wasn't a "serious" candidate, before she decided not to run. He's said some strange things from time to time, but he's pretty solid on being a conservative.
If there's even a chance of Romney beating Obama, Americans Elect will run Trump or Cain as a third party candidate to divide the vote to assure Obama's election.
Then there are the newly-minted Amnesty-'Americans' that Obama is ushering in to vote for him.
The lack of Photo IDs will enable an even greater manipulation of the election.
He's not the least bit worried.
With a Romney win in Iowa and NH the focus is now totally on South Carolina for the Consrervative cause. Because South Carolina is a pretty good representation of the more Conservative repubilcan voter a win in SC for Romney will be the great ending.
I discount New Hampshire because it is an open primary where DemocRATs (knowing Obama was unchallenged in his primary) crossed over in droves to vote the weakest Republican candidate for Obama to be against in the general.
I don't think many caught this on FoxNews last night but Bret Baire said that 51% of Huntsman voters in NH thought that Obama deserved a second term. Also for all you people living in denial Donna Brazile laided it out pretty clear last night after the debate. ''Mitt Romney is the candidate the DemocRATs want to run against Obama''. How telling.
A Romney win in South Carolina will tell Conservatives our message and messinger is weak and does not resonate with the American people.(disheartening) If he (Romney) wins in SC, it looks like the Republicans will screw up again offering another Dole/McCain candidate to the American people.
What has become of America....????
Is it really true as Pat Buchannan states so clearly '' The fall of America, is the greatest light of Freedom the world has ever seen being extinguished.'' How sad that Conservatives are unable to organize and prefer to eat their own allowing even NutCase Ron Paul to beat us through his use of smear and mud slinging.
South Carolina will be the writing on the wall. Will Republicans wake up to their founding principles that get their roots from Jefferson and Washington or have the liberals truely taken over both parties neutering the American nation into a bunch of policially correct whimps???????
So now it comes down to this...which Conservative is the best to win against Mittens and Paul...
Santorum - 25%
Gingrich - 13%
Perry - 9%
Gingrich - 10%
Santorum - 9%
Perry - 1%
Clearly Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are pretty much tied for the Conservative section of the GOP. While I like Perry, I think the writing is on the wall, he should back one of those two. Continuing further is only going to keep the field split and reduce the chance for a Conservative to step forth. (That is FACT not Fiction)
Come on Conservatives!!!!The time is NOW to rally to one of the two stronger Conservatives. Newt seems to have gone overboard with this Bain crap and has really done himself a disservice so I think the logic is clear.
Rick Santorum is Conservatives BEST chance at taking the Primary back for our Conservative cause not giving it to Romney because we are sooo split.
Ok Gingrich and Perry people....you can smear me all you want but what I am saying is the HEARTFELT TRUTH....! We conservatives are split and will not win divided.
I have no intention of smearing you for a valid opinion. I do however disagree. I really don't care what Newt has to do to get some traction. The only reason he isn't higher right now is because of false ads put out by Romney surrogates. Newt's surrogates are at least telling the truth no matter how distasteful Rush and Levin find them. If anyone thinks liberals haven't already thought of what to use against Romney including Bain...give me a break. I wish Santorum would drop out and back Gingrich. A Gingrich/Santorum ticket would bring out a strong conservative Republican electorate especially after they heard what Gingrich has to say. Every town meeting he speaks at he changes minds, I think Independents and middle of the roader's would also agree with his message.
It's not Newt's pacs....its Newt and Perry themselves saying this about Romney and Capitalism. That is the problem. That is the issue....not the PACs. By law you are not allowed in any way to talk to a PAC supporting you because it is not suppost to be associated with your campaign directly in any form. That is the law. The candidate can distance themselves from it and call it bad...boo hoo but that is not the issue. The issue is it is the candidates themselve...Perry and Gingrich that are discrimintating against Capitalism.
Please list when Gingrich has every talked against Capitalism... He hasn't!! Gingrich has done more for Capitalism then any politician alive! Read his 21st Century Contract with America & Solutions while you are at it. His plan is touted as the best economic plan by economists for a reason!!
Romney is a sleaze bag and has lied about creating 100,000 jobs, and took money, $54 Million, from tax-payers (Government) to wreck thousands of lives while he pocketed millions and sent jobs overseas.. No, Romney & Bain is not Capitalism. McDonalds & Ray Kroc ; Steve Jobs & Apple; Mark Zuckerberg & Facebook is Capitalism. Romney has no soul as Huckabee said.
Newt 4 The Win
Romney was a limp rag appeaser in Massachusetts; he complied with every demand of the sin-sick, promiscuous, rebellious, ungodly, rabid liberal left.
Romney is likely to bow and comply to the even greater pressure of the Islamo-fascist insurgents if by some miracle he is elected, over what is the most cunning political machine and adversary of the century.
Obama is a deadly combination of all the radical agenda groups in one; he is the perfect spiritual, moral, fiscal and political storm.
Only GOD can bring this conglomerate of evil down.
The Conservative troops are divided, compromised, distracted and blinded by our sin and for having focused on our own selfish pleasures and desires.
We need a champion selected and anointed by GOD, who like Gideon, will weed out and send away the false-hearted conservatives, will not compromise with those who do not really fear GOD and keep only those who know, follow and worship Him, who understand the value of GOD's Law on which this nation and its laws and Constitution were founded.
Romney has not shown that kind of courage or strength in the past.
In the meantime, Obama is growing bolder and bolder, will not defend marriage, will not defend our borders, is busy ignoring and even challenging state and federal laws to suit his agenda, taking over every venue of communication, law enforcement, and is appointing more and more leftist radicals. Obama's goal is to make the US an Islamo-fascist totalitarian regime - the 58th Islamic state in OIC. He/they will stop at nothing.
In 2010 and most of 2011, Levin was pretty low key about that. He'd just shrug off comments when people told him we needed to change the primary process. He'd just ask them "what do you plan to do about it?" But he wouldn't get all intense and state "We must change this process!" I was wondering if he'd ever call for it with any intensity at all.
I figure it is a given that in tuning a business for success some head has to roll. Those unlucky enough to be involved with unsuccessful products will have to go. You are fine tuning the company for success.
Now, the question that has not been answered, and in point of fact has been tellingly side stepped by Romney, is whether he figures the US government is the business he is supposed to optimize or is it the nation and people's prosperity of the country as a whole.
Optimizing the government brings more government. The government is more successful telling you and me how we may live our lives and taxing us for the privilege of living our lives. The more successful government is leaner, maybe, and certainly is bigger overall.
Optimizing the nation trims off the financial drains of excess government optimizing your lives and mine. This means smaller government, likely much smaller government.
Which way does Romney see as the fit application for his Bain talents? By observation he will optimize the government, growing it so it can better control the recalcitrant public. Unless Romney can convince me otherwise I'll probably go get my nails done on election day, to hell with the polling places.
In Massachusetts, Romney wanted to expand the empire, so he raised taxes and fees on the private-sector by over $740 million dollars.
Then his final year in office, he called for another $170 million tax increase on private-sector businesses... only to have the request blocked by the Democrats. Yes, blocked by the Democrats. Apparently, Romney's tax hikes and fee increases became too much for even the liberals.
If I had to bet right now on a Romney v. Obama contest, my money would be on Obama.
He'll end up with it anyway.
And with that Romney SC win will the tea party enthusiastic Nov 2010 victory momentum be dead? I bet democrats are going to be smiling with glee.
Is there a dumb virus going around? Mark, how does Romney supporting TARP justify Gingrich trashing the market system vis a vis Bain? Huh?
If Romney is our candidate, then it's time for a Hail Mary play. Letting Romney win would be the same as submitting ourselves as the GOP's bitches.....existing only to give them their votes without having any say in who our elected officials are.
Romney is not good enough- and if Obama wins a 2nd term, then it is not a failure of the people, it is a failure of the GOP.....I'm not going to feel guilty. It is not our responsibility to succumb to our party, it is the party's resposibility to appease our wants, just as it is our government's responsibility to do the same.
I will support anyone except for the establishment candidate because I refuse to give the establishment any power and acknowledgement that they own our [the conservative] vote.
Obama winning is not an option! You are the establishment, I am the establishment! Romney is the Anti - Obama candidate.
I am not here to make enemies, I would hope that we have similarities in our love for America. I just want to be clear. I want Obama to lose! I am not a conservative in voter registration, because there are to many racists that register conservative. I am registered Republican, but I am a conservative with christian values. I am pro Jesus Christ, I am anti gay (yes , I want people to be unhappy), I am anti abortion. These are the 3 issues that I am most passionate about. Whichever candidate that I feel has the best chance of winning and most closely shares my views on the issues that matter to me, I will support. I love my family and my country. I love the freedom that my relatives fought and, some, died for. I do not think that my relatives died, so that some marxist could over through America. I will vote for the Republican Candidate that is chosen! I am convinced that Mitt Romney is and will be the Republican Candidate, and I support him whole heartedly. I am through trying to support the candidate that I wanted. It was Perry, if you care to know.
You can be force-fed if you want; I don't like it and will not play that game. I'll be glad to turn down the crap sandwich....hope you find it enjoyable- at least if I go down, I'll know I did the right thing. If your guy goes down, it will happen with you bending over at the waist. Who's the woman/man again?
Romney is a man, unlike the god obama. What is this establishment bullshit?(that is so 1960's) What is it that you speak of, the bourgeoisie establishment, lets all hold cigarettes funny grow goatee's, stop showering and listen to someone pick on some sort of stringed instrument while we say some poems that we created in some sort of drugged up stuper and contemplate marxism while we put down the man. Or, better yet, lets all grow up and become men (or women, depending on how GOD made you, of course) and get that communist out of office.
DeMint's just giving his opinion as he sees the race going right now; he said he's been wrong before. I'll give Good Ol' Jimmy a pass on this, still support the Senate Conservatives Fund.
I thought Sen. DeMint was a leader, but he decided to go silent and not run or endorse. So now we have Romney.
Same goes for Paul Ryan and Mitch Daniels. They keep telling us how important this election is and how no one is talking about the big issues, but they don't step up.
Why didn't Jim DeMint run? For that matter, what is Sarah Palin thinking right now? God, we'll never get a true conservative leader in this nation! Without one, we are toast.
Romney wins SC, he wins Florida. At that point its over. Brokered convention would be the only thing that could stop Romney, but since he is the establishment guy it won't happen.
But you bet your bottom dollar if Palin had run and clinched the establishment would do their best for a brokered convention.
Everyone who thinks in terms of 'establishment' vs 'anti-establishment' is an ignorant fool. Because a well known Republicans support a particular candidate, in this case Romney, that it is some kind of conspiracy.
Actually idiot, well known people are endorsing Romney because he is articulate, intelligent, compitent, and electible. What a concept! Go vote for Ron Paul you F*ing idiot.
Don't know that he's hoping for the VP nod, but he was definately in the tank for Romney. I just listened to the radio interview (still listening) and he seemed to be offended that Romney was being insulted when the same happened to Newt and I didn't hear an interview standing up for Newt while he was being attacked.
GOP needs to go- Sadly, it is too late for a third party to gain ground.....the stakes are too high.
