    About time…WAY PAST TIME..

    I hope he’s proud of himself for screwing over conservatives.

    • hrh40

      Huh?

      Romney = Obama
      Santorum = taking one for the team Arlen Specter spending too much when a Repub president asks for it
      Paul = Libertarian

      Gingrich was the only across the board conservative in the bunch.

      But thanks for playing.

      • xam3991

        You must have a funny definition of conservative.

        • anth Japonez

          perhaps he learned it from Murray Rothbard.

        • Sober_Thinking

          Agreed, he was never a conservative. But he has moved to a more conservative position, he had many great ideas and would have served America better than Romney will. The establishment would have been put on notice if Newt or others got in.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dean-Sheridan/100001882217524 Dean Sheridan

          Certainly you would not qualify as one. May a wedgie follow you in life where ever you go.

            It obviously follows you and look at the classy people who “liked” your comment.

        • StNikao

          Newt is a conservative – not an ideological theorist like Paul or the Birchers, who do not know how to reform or implement policy, but a get America healthy, functional, working, accountable and prosperous conservative.

      • kong1967

        Wrong. Bachmann is more conservative than Gingrich by far. She is small government and Newt has proposed a lot of big government solutions.

        • xam3991

          yeah Michele and Rick were way way way more conservative than Newt.

          • http://twitter.com/zeeshopper Zeeshopper

            My response to kong1967 is for you too.

          • Sober_Thinking

            They were. And if you deny that, then you’re not paying attention.

            But let’s not fight. Let’s embrace our doom together.

          • 3seven77

            And BOTH of them have openly admitted they learned what they know about conservatism from NEWT GINGRICH.

            He is the Master. They are but the “grasshoppers”.

            • xam3991

              Alas, the master who turned to the dark side…

              This was a case of the apprentice exceeding the master.

              • 3seven77

                You are wrong, not-grasshopper.

              • Trust1TG

                Poppycock.

          • StNikao

            Not really. Santorum’s votes and endorsements show he was not even consistently pro-life.

            • keyesforpres

              Not true. He did not vote to fund Planned Parenthood. That funding was snuck into a bill. That is what happens.

        • http://twitter.com/zeeshopper Zeeshopper

          Once the kool-aid effect will wear down, you’ll come back and look at it in a different way. You might have to wait until November though when you’ll see R0mney lose in a landslide because of the Chicage machine attacks, the media attacks and finally the 0bama attacks.

          • kong1967

            Ok, what he heck does your answer have to do with my comment? Bachmann is not Romney and Romney wasn’t even on my mind. What the hell is wrong with you?

          • trustintheLORDwithallyourheart

            No, I believe the media and the Democrats will abandon Obama and fully get on the Romney train. Romney is their kind of guy — a very good progressive Democrat, ideologically speaking, and not as blatantly Marxist as Obama. I think Romney will pull more Democrat/Independent votes than Republican.

            I’m a registered Republican (with hopes that a new conservative/constitutional party emerges soon, so I can change my party affiliation), and, unfortunately, I’ll have no choice but to vote for Romney, because 4 more years of an unfettered Obama will be sudden death for America. With Romney, we can at least hang onto hopes of restraining him from his progressive ways, and hold him to his declaration that he is “severely conservative”. But, man, this is torture!

            • http://twitter.com/boxerpaws60 Cain2Convention

              my husband and i are joining the Constitution Party for a host of reasons that i won’t get into here. They are going to have no bearing on this election but i intend to support them and grow the base until they are a real threat to the GOP.http://www.constitutionparty.com/

            • StNikao

              Romney has been anointed by the powers that be to implement the health care aka socialized medicine and to institutionalize all their other social liberal agenda plans.

            • librtifirst

              I see that you still believe that the people elect presidents in this country. If that were the case, then Obama staying in would theoretically shift more power to republicans in the house and senate. Romney getting in would shift more power back to the dems, at least historically speaking.

              Personally, I believe that the establishment will simply make it all look good and close in the general, and put in whoever they want. If Obama, then they are likely ready to let the radicals come out for a political dissent clampdown, and if Romney, then they are wanting to drag the collapse out a bit before they dump it on us.

              I’m just hoping that the Ron Paul campaign gets enough leverage to shake up the establishment and wake up a bunch more people to reality in this country. So far, it is working.

              After the primary, I am resigning my republican party affiliation of 22 years. The only viable party is the Libertarian party. They are the only ones with a good grass roots movement. Conservatives have to get as radically conservative as the democrats are radical in their liberalism. Before long, we will all be radicals that need to be stomped down by a totalitarian regime, and then we will say goodbye to the rest of our liberties.

          • keyesforpres

            We’re getting Romney because Newt wouldn’t drop out when he should have. There is a good chance Santorum would have been our nominee if Newt had dropped out a couple of months ago, but he was too childish to drop out.

            • http://twitter.com/zeeshopper Zeeshopper

              It works both ways…

              We’re getting Romney because Santorum wouldn’t drop out when he should have. There is a good chance Newt would have been our nominee if Santorum had dropped out a couple of months ago, but he was too childish to drop out.

              • ApplePie101

                Except that Santorum was beating Gingrich everywhere but South Carolina.

                • http://twitter.com/zeeshopper Zeeshopper

                  Yeah he was beating Gingrich by promoting himself as a true Christian and conservative. Two things that Santorum is NOT (due to his actions of attacking and whining and his records), but people like you believed him. He should have dropped at the same time with Perry, but his ego was too big to fail.

                • nibblesyble

                  Exactly, after SC, he should have dropped out..but he choose to stay in.

        • Trust1TG

          They were on the same page where education and entitlements were concerned.

          • kong1967

            They’re probably on the same page on a lot of things, but no one can say that Bachmann is not a solid conservative.

            • JRD1

              I can. She sold out to the GOPe. She was never qualified and threw conservatives under the bus. She is a despicable opportunist and as corrupt as the rest of them. Looks like the GOPe and Etch-a-sketch don’t need her any longer.

        • StNikao

          Not really, Michele Bachmann was not far from Newt on many ideas. She was trying to sound more conservative because she was running against him. She actually mis-represented his positions and record at times.

          • kong1967

            I’d take either of them over Romney any day. I was just debunking the claim that Newt was the only conservative across the board out of all of the candidates. Not true.

        • keyesforpres

          Agreed. She was my first choice. She even talked about overturning Frank Dodd and she went into all the horrible things in that bill.

      • rmallen

        We all knew who the establishment wanted from the start. The others kept the conversation on a more conservative level for as long as their campaigns would allow. They knew that they would not have a voice after dropping out. I hoped we could be stronger than the establishment.
        However, the voice now has to come from the people on every level, from the local level on up. We must not give away our country.

        • http://twitter.com/boxerpaws60 Cain2Convention

          “We all knew who the establishment wanted from the start.” Yep. this has been THE worst race i have ever seen. Very discouraged. Joined Cain Solutions Rev. gonna look to Congress to get some great candidates in there.Keep majority and take Sen. It’s just heartbreaking.

        hey, Santorum hasn’t endorsed backstabbing Romney, Gingrich will. whose more Conservative again?

        P.S. that “take one for the team” endorsement of Arlen Specter got us the 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court that’ll Throw down ObamaCare fyi. well worth it.

        • wodiej

          Santorum was nothing but a spoiler. He had no chance of being the nominee or beating Obama. He was a stooge for Romney to keep Gingrich from winning. The fact he’s endorsed no one says volumes. He’s a weasel. He’s going to wait for Gingrich to endorse so he can act innocent.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000679899592 John Bohler

            switch the Santorum and Gingrich names around and wipe out the last sentence and you would be right.

              Ain’t happening.

            • StNikao

              Heartily disagree – Newt was in it for the opportunity to restore the US to Reagan conservativism…to try to keep the socialists and radical Islamists from destroying a great nation.

              • keyesforpres

                Santorum said he jumped in because of Obamacare. He knew it had to be overturned.

            • keyesforpres

              Bingo! Gingrich only won two states and refused to drop out. That makes him the spoiler…along with the crazy uncle.

          • 3seven77

            Santorum wants to be VP. Simple as that.

        • kong1967

          Don’t take this as a slam on Santorum because I like him, but how does his (and your) argument that his “endorsement of Specter got us the 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court” hold water? Somehow if the more conservative Pat Toomey won the election that Toomey would have supported a liberal judge? I don’t think so.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000679899592 John Bohler

            Specter was a vital member on the Committee that approved the Supreme Court Nominees. It would have been very very very unlikely that Rookie Pat Toomey would have gotten on the Committee, if he would have won the election at all (which was also in doubt) Before Santorum’s endorsement Specter was against Bushes choices for the bench, after the endorsement Spector, almost magicly, supported Bushes nominees and was their biggest supporter on the all important committee! weird right? hmmmm…..

            • kong1967

              Ah, I gotcha and I see why Specter made a difference. However, the argument is hindsight. Unless you tell me that Santorum endorsed Specter so he could manipulate him into changing his positions on the Bush appointees. Santorum supported Specter, not the unknown Specter (to be) on a committee to pick a Supreme Court nominee. Big difference. Santorum had no idea Specter would be on that committee in the future, so it’s an excuse to cover his butt.

              Again, I like Santorum so don’t jump through your monitor to ring my neck, lol.

              Edit: To be precise, there were things I didn’t like but overall I liked him.

              • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000679899592 John Bohler

                lol i won’t, but actully Santorum has said time and time again, the main reason for his endorsement of the traitor was being able to convince him to support the Supreme Court Nominee

                • kong1967

                  That’s funny. When I said “unless you tell me that Santorum supported Specter so he could manipulate him” I didn’t actually expect you to do it, lol. So Specter was already known to be on the committe before the election? Well, if that’s what Santorum said then he would know more than I.

                • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000679899592 John Bohler

                  Spector was running a Re-election campaign, so naturally he was already on the committee! rofl

                • kong1967

                  Go ahead and laugh. Being in office doesn’t mean being on a committee. I didn’t know if he was or not.

                • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000679899592 John Bohler

            • StNikao

              Specter is a sleazoid jerk…but he did vote right on those two judges…as he had promised Santorum.

        How did Ford do against the peanut farmer that almost destroyed our nation back then? How could any conservative ever vote for job killing socialist obamneycare supporter proabortion antimarriage mitt romney, even if Newt were to “suspend”? if romney were to become the weakest nominee of the Republican party , this provides barak obama with the STRONGEST chance for a second term! But if somehow he wins, the liberals now put in charge of the GOP , one left of Ted Kennedy. Either way, our nation will call for the TEA Party conservatives stop the liberals from destroying our nation, whether they come from the GOP or Democratic party. A romney nominee will do to the nation what romney did to MA, driving away GOP memberships by large percentages, and having liberals become stronger while increasing the number of conservative independents who will after decades of trying to get the GOP to come clean, will finally leave and ONLY vote for true conservative GOP but also look for more conservative independents, to stop the out of control money hungry politicians who are destroying our nation! No obama, NO obamney!

      • keyesforpres

        Nonsense. Up until last spring Newt supported the individual mandate…for the past twenty years! He’s for amnesty. He’s is always talking about gov’t solutions to private sector problems. He is not a conservative.

      • keyesforpres

        Santorum was one of the most conservative Senators when he was in the senate. His record has been distorted. His supporting Spector has been posted on this board over and over again. He did it when Spector was still a Republican and because Spector was on a committee and promised to push to get conservatives on the Supreme Court and he did.

        Have you seen that posted here before?

        Now if we can only be sure that there is no voting fraud maybe we can get O out but even that is going to be an uphill battle. Maybe it’s time to pull together so Obama can be voted out and we can start to try and redirect this country!

        • NJK

          If there’s voter fraud, Romney won’t fight it. There was voter fraud in Ohio and PA last time, and McCain let it go. Because McCain is a coward and not a warrior, we have that nice family man who was born in Hawaii.

        • JRD1

          No way will I vote for the socialist Etch-a-sketch. Hey, how about we allow pictures of the Pink Diaper Baby’s daddy posing with Saul Alyinsky go viral.

        • librtifirst

          Election fraud is the problem. As Stalin said “I don’t care who votes, I only care who counts the votes”. Voter fraud is only used as a distraction to keep the real fraud out of the lime light.

          If voter fraud is the problem, then there must not be any election fraud going on. :)

      He didn’t screw over anybody and in fact he’s the only true conservative in the race. I will always be proud of Newt, especially for what he accomplished when he was Speaker. PS – also heard that he’s actually NOT dropping out. This was just a rumor from Carl Cameron at Faux News.

    • keyesforpres

      Agreed. If Newt had dropped out two months ago, Santorum would likely be our nominee. Heck, Santorum asked him a Paul two weeks ago if they’d drop out and support him and they refused.

      Thanks a lot Newt. It was all about Newt.

      • nibblesyble

        pshssst..if Santo dropped out after SC Newt would be the nominee…see how that works..no one knows for sure about anything, so leave it. When Santo dropped out, I didn’t show up on that thread making derisive comments, I held back Keyes…show us the same restraint..that goes for Xam as well.

    • keyesforpres

      Interesting….my reply to you is gone.

  • kong1967

    I like Newt a lot more than Romney, but we all knew this was inevitable. He was only shortening the time Romney has to focus on Obama.

    • StNikao

      All Romney can say to Obama is “Me Too.”

      They have the same policies, tactics and programs.

      • kong1967

        Lol, I gotta give that one to you. That’s funny….”me too”.

        I largely agree but there are other things I’m trying to focus on. For example, the new “Attrocities Prevention Board”…..Obama appointed as chairman the lady that advised invading Israel. Any guesses where Obama is going with this? Obama wants to destroy our missile defense systems, our Navy, our nuclear program, capitalism, and bla bla bla. Romney has liberal tendencies on social issues but he will become key in preventing the previous things I mentioned from happening. He will have a difficult time governing from the left when his base is “right”. He knows he has to appease the base or he’s gone. In Mass., 80% of government and the population is liberal, so who did he have to appease? Yeah, I know….fake. But he will be what we need to be able to push a conservative agenda at all.

    Newt had to wait a couple weeks so it wouldn’t look too suspicious.

  • 4Hoppes2

    My only lament is that every conservative has gone onto endorse Romney but Romney has yet to try and make peace or common ground with conservatism.

    • Arrrggghhh

      Picking Allen West as his running mate would be a great start. I like Rubio but I think he’s too young. If Rubio stays the course, he’ll have his day in the sun.

      Having West in the wings would give me hope and make me enthusiastic for Romney.

      • Sober_Thinking

        You’re right to a point. West is light years ahead of many of these people. If he were Romney’s VP, that would be a great sign indeed.

        But NOTHING is going to make me enthusiastic for Romney. I’ll vote for the bum because I have to. But I will not support him.

        • Arrrggghhh

          I misspoke. Correctly stated, I would be enthusiastic for the ticket simply for the fact that West was on it. Exactly in the same way that I felt about the 2008 McCain/Palin ticket.

          I would also have to give Romney the credit due for simply having selected West.

      • 4Hoppes2

        West would help alleviate a lot of consternation, it would be nice to see him choose a real conservative but throughout the campaign he has distanced himself from conservatives and our desire for a smaller, more limited, responsible government. Will have to see and pray for the best.

      • http://onthemark1.blogspot.com/ On The Mark

        Romney will never choose Allen West because the Colonel speaks the unadulterated TRUTH, but Romney has already made clear he doesn’t have the fortitude to stand up to Islamic Tyranny. I think men like West scare the crap out of milquetoasts like Romney.

        I would be deeply disappointed in West, crushed even, if he were willing to run with a Liberal/Statist liar so desperately lacking integrity like Romney.

        • Arrrggghhh

          While I agree on your assessments of both Romney and West, I totally disagree that I would be disappointed in West if he agreed to be on the ticket.

          West getting on the ticket would be the camel’s nose under the tent that this country desperately needs. It would be like seeing the cavalry on the horizon. Are you saying that you’d prefer two Rino’s? Romney/Christie? Arrrggghhh! Even the prospect of West’s influence on the decision making process would be incredible.

          For the record, I don’t think Romeny will pick West. I’m just saying that it would be great if he did.

          • NJK

            Allen West would be great. Rubio I don’t like. Does anyone know why Rubio is supposed to give a speech on foreign policy? Is it to show the peasants that he’s very smart on Iraq and Afghanistan? Good grief. I can’t even look at him and Romney. I’m sorry, they look like to dorks with the stupid jeans and the sport coat. Someone better tell Romney to dress a little more respectable and age appropriate. One thing you can say about George W. Bush, he always looked respectable. When he walked in a room you knew he was President. Romney goes this way, and that way, one day he looks like Al Gore in the jeans, and the next day he adds a sport coat to look even more Joe cool. I better leave, I’m ranting. Sorry.

              “One thing you can say about George W. Bush, he always looked respectable. When he walked in a room you knew he was President.” Yep and he was not as stupid as the media painted him to be.

                Yep and he was not as stupid as the media painted him to be.
                Nor was he as conservative as the media painted him to be. If Kerry had won in 2004 we wouldn’t have got Nancy and Harry then Obama. People tend to forget it was Bush and the GOPe that tarnished the GOP brand so badly Republicans didn’t have much chance in 06 and 08 and were facing walking in the wilderness for a generation or two. The TP pulled the GOPe out of the wilderness and the GOP kindly thanks usby saying **** you! we’ll take it from here. No thanks!

          • http://onthemark1.blogspot.com/ On The Mark

            It’s virtually impossible to interpret acceptance of a VP pick (by West or whoever) as anything less than a wholehearted endorsement. It never occurred to me that a VP might have a positive effect on Romney. I appreciate your optimism, and if West or another conservative joins the Liberal Romney, then I’ll certainly hope you are right. But I think my pessimism is more realistic.

          You are correct that “men like West scare the crap out of milquetoasts like Romney”.

          You omit that men like West also scare the crap out of Independent voters.

          Hate on the Indies all you wish…I find them cowardly…but they exist and they vote. Ignore them at your peril.

        • Josh

          Agreed. I can’t imagine Allen West trying to even endorse him. Maybe by saying ABO, but not a true endorsement: “Romney is a man of charac… Ha Ha… No wait, maybe I can say this with a straight face… Nope! Can’t do it!”

      • NJK

        Rubio’s not qualified under the Constitution. His parents weren’t even naturalized citizens until he was four years old. If we don’t get to the bottom of this Natural Born clause in the Constitution, someday, and Egyptian born Islamic Jihadist cleric is going to claim he was too, and everyone will accept it. They do want to destroy the country from within. They’re doing a pretty good job at it now, with the Islamo Nazi collaborators they have in there, in the government. Interesting, I haven’t heard Romney talk once about that. Does he believe the war on terror is over too?

        See, the economy that was purposely destroyed by the African born impostor and his enablers in the Republican Party and media isn’t the only thing we have to worry about. Without security, the economy doesn’t matter much, does it.

          I afraid you’re right.

          I live in PA. We voted yesterday. When I looked at the names on the ballot, I just couldn’t bring myself to vote for any of them. I wrote in Herman Cain.

        • FreeManWalking

          I know your are right.

          McCaint picked someone that out-shined him so much and it still hurts him today.

          Willard will not pick someone that will be a bigger draw than he is, which isn’t much.

          I bet McCaint scrunches up his gnarly puss every time he sees Sarah get applause and cheers.

      • Trust1TG

        Allen West voted for NDAA.

        He is too new and unseasoned.

        We need Newt.

        • Arrrggghhh

          After Cain dropped out, I was actually leaning toward Newt. However, if you want to look for single issues that disqualify someone, Newt has at least a few himself. I think his skills would better suit him as Chief of Staff rather than VP.

          I generally agree that people need to be seasoned, however, I think West is in his early 50’s. If he serves 8 years and does well, he’d be around 60 and very seasoned. His grasp of history, his toughness and his ability to articulate conservative (a.k.a. American) values really impress me.

        • MaxineCA

          Actually, when Allen West voted for NDAA it contained language that excluded lawful residents and US citizens. Same for the Senate Armed Services Committee. It was the ADMINISTRATION that told them to remove the language. I’m not sure how it got passed eventually without that language, but I don’t hold it against West without knowing all of the details.

        I can’t believe how deaf everyone is.

        The GOPe despises West. I reside in his district.

        The Florida controlled Bush-wacking GOP legislature redistricted West right out of his congressional seat in FL-22 and shoved a corrupt hack who co-sponsored Gore-bull warming legislation in Florida down our throats because we had the temerity to elect a conservative.

        Think about it. They should have redistricted Wasserman-Socialist out of her seat.

        The GOPe’s motto is “Better a Democrat than someone who is not a corrupt progressive like us!”

        So you are saying republicans are not conservatives then?

        • xymbaline

          As we have seen, many of them aren’t.

          • Galatiansch2vs20

            Yes, I know, but it seems Cheryl is saying to be Republican is not to be conservative. And it seems like that is what the party itself has come to stand for (not being conservative), with Romney as the expected nominee.

            • xymbaline

              I’m depressed at Newt leaving, but by the same token, my local segment of the GOP is *very* conservative.

              So it can be done.

              • Galatiansch2vs20

                What are you saying can be done? Weeding out all the establishment and leadership from the party that are not conservative?

                • xymbaline

                  Pretty much.

                  We’ve seen the former Democrat Party purge all its former conservatives and moderates.

                  Time to do the same with purifying the Republican Party, except we have to purge the liberals and the ‘moderates’.

                  We’re seeing in Florida that the ‘conservative Republicans’ in Tallahassee are frequently leaving the reservation, supporting government boondoogles and taking the teeth out of immigration bills, ant-Sharia bills.

                  It all starts at home. Join the highest level of the local GOP you can reach, and then consolidate the Tea Partiers in your area into a group. Expose the corruptocrats, vote them out.

        You voted for Romney because you BOUGHT what the establishment sold you: that “he is the ONLY person able to take on obama and WIN.” There was a lot of money behind that propaganda campaign. Don’t kid yourself. You were bought.

        • http://twitter.com/cfallon57 Cheryl Fallon

          Maybe it is time to accept the fact that this country hasn’t been conservative in thought and deed for a VERY LONG TIME and to elect someone that is so conservative while it would have been great was highly unlikely-Obama needs to go!

          • RosiesSeeingRed

            Just the way the progressives have planned it, Cheryl. And they count on people like you to just “accept” it. They’ve had their candidates on both sides. Maybe the democrats push through their socialist ideas faster, but their “republican” versions on the right do it too, just a lot slower. Still, socialism marches on. Yep, it’s been a VERY LONG TIME — like 40 years of the progressive agenda infiltrating our schools, universities, churches, media…. that’s the way it’s done.

            I think Obama was probably the straw that broke the camel’s back, so to speak. But Bush was as “big government” as they get. We were just asleep then. Obama woke us up and now we clearly see what has been going on for a VERY LONG TIME. This does not make Romney the better choice, or make it OK that the country has moved from the right toward the left (that’s how you end up in the center — see?). It just makes him the slower choice to the same inevitable end.

            And for the record, you can be a “moderate” and still comprehend that big government programs and spending is bad for this country. That fact that Romney only spent 4 years in government and did so with a big-goverment, big-spending record is why we see him as more of the same. It has nothing to do with where we sit on the scale — middle, right of middle, right — does it matter? We know what’s bad for this country. I myself sit right of center, like most of this country. I STILL think Romney sucks.

            I agree Obama needs to go. I just don’t see Romney being the one to make it happen.

            • Trust1TG

              Romney is just their ‘Plan B’….the same big cabals are running things either way.

            • JimmyBleep

              Listen, everyone got attached to a candidate or two during the primary. Mitt wasn’t my first or second choice. I think everyone goes through the thought process of people foolishly not realizing their candidate was the best. Whether you supported Newt, Huntsman, or Bachman, it doesn’t matter. But that process is over. The choice has been made and for better or worse, most of our candidates lost. It is just reality. You can complain all you want but it doesn’t do any good.

Roll, so we can have someone who likes the progressive income tax, that’s right out of the communist manifesto. A great 57 point plan, written by lobbyists. Roll, so the green lobby can write you checks for your next run at the office. Roll so we can have Marco Rubio as VP who’s parents weren’t even naturalized citizens until he was four. Maybe next time we can even get an Egyptian born cleric claim he’s natural born, and he will be the next candidate.

    No One knows what Newt will do. It sounds to me like “others” in the race have been very concerned about him all along. When you have all the money and all the power of a party in your back pocket & you undermine a competitors campaign to boot – you must pretty concerned that you would lose on a level playing field. No one in modern History as survived the barrage & won as much Gingrich has. We know who the true Conservative is; Newt; History wrote that when Mitt was signing into law 485 pills as part of O’Bomney Care while trashing 2nd amendment fights as Governor. Ask yourself why we as the people have to settle for less than the best so the Establishment can put in place their tool at all costs? We know the answer – their all tiring to save their own bacon. The Republic loses here, not Speaker Gingrich. I for one applaud his effort.

    • Alan Fuhrman

      Thanks Dean, I appreciate your post.

    • JimmyBleep

      Won as much as Gingrich has? What has he won?

      • GraceKnows

        Uh, do I have to spell it out? And don’t say the Republican Revolution, balanced budgets, welfare reform, etc., don’t count, because that was then….

        You would be surprised how much of a following Newt has. They are some of the most positive and intelligent people I’ve met.

        • JimmyBleep

          The post you made was all about the primary. I figured that was what you were talking about when you claimed he survived the barrage and won so much.

          • GraceKnows

            Jimmy, yes. I was also responding to Dean, regarding all that Newt has had to go through. It’s not only the 11-13 years it took of patiently working toward the Contract With America and the other things I mentioned.

            It’s funny, because one of the strategies the media and Romney used on Newt was “uh-oh! Newt’s mad at Mitt! Now he’s on the warpath,” something like that, anyway. And Newt fought back against Romney’s machine. After a time, he decided to stay positive, and he did. And CHEERFUL. :)

            But Newt has had a very tough road. Have you heard any of his speeches, like for the NRA, or any of them? He inspires people and gives them hope that we can turn this ship around. I never caught that kind of charisma, knowledge, or fighting spirit from anyone else in the campaign. I liked Herman Cain for a while, but his speeches and policies didn’t have what Newt’s had.

            Anyway, I’ll be sorry to see Newt suspend, but I hope he’ll find a way to get his ideas in at Tampa.

            • JimmyBleep

              I think all of the candidates who got past Super Tuesday had significant charisma or they never would have made it that far. No one doubts Newt’s intelligence and inspirational capabilities. He has a lot of strong attributes and unfortunately a lot of weak ones as well. I think that is where he came up short. Cain had the best connection to the people but he simply was not qualified for the office. It became obvious after Newt lost the southern states to Rick, that his run for president had failed. It is not his path but I am sure this journey has helped him map out his next move. I am excited to see what that is.

      So you & xam & others are glad that a PRO abortion, *institutionalized* Planned Parenthood, PRO gun control, PRO Gullible Warming, etc candidate is going to be the nominee?

(well, unless it might advance the Mormon cult) You’re on board with Rombamacare & a million & one “czars”?

  • Josh

    My apologies for the long post. This has been a long time coming…

    Can anyone explain why the primary process exists? They should just have a convention where the GOP selects their nominee and leave it at that. This farce that the citizens get to select their candidate is beyond idiocy. Not to mention, for a political party that “supposedly” believes in fiscal conservatism, they sure wasted a lot of individual citizens’ money on campaign ads that did nothing but delay the inevitable. Romney was chosen before the primaries began. If you go back to the very beginning of the announcements, you will find that every announcement of the candidates listed “the front-runner, Mitt Romney”.

    The truth of the matter is this: At some point, if the people want to have their government back, they will have to take it back by the dissolution of the current system. We need to reboot the entire system back down to the Constitution. Every single Senator, Representative, Secretary of ___, etc. should be banned for life. Every Senator is breaking the law by not passing a budget. Every member of the administration has broken laws by allowing the circumvention of Constitutional process and checks and balances. Every Supreme Court justice should be forced to retire because they were put in place by politicians who cared about their activism, not their moral character and legal prudence. Every Representative that has not called for the impeachment of this President is not doing their job. “We the People” just sit here. Why? We think we still have some impact by our Golden Ticket at the ballot box. It has been proven in this primary process that, through deceit, fraud, bribery, and other means that we do not have any effect. Proof? Romney.

    Not a single member of Congress speaks up against the establishment. Because they are there. They made it. If they rock the boat, they may not be there again. I have yet to see a single candidate who runs on the platform “I want to serve for one term! I want to do my DUTY then go home!” The same thing is true for the size of government. IT WILL NEVER GET SMALLER. Why? The more people under you, the more political power you have. Who is going to get rid of their own committee? Who is going to cut their own funding? The people who PAID for that person to be elected are expecting their RETURNS. Every single one of them is in office because they were paid to be there.

    In the 2010 elections, the average amount spent per winning Representative was $1.8 million. The average amount per winning Senator was $8.5 million. How many favors would YOU need to promise to get $1.8 million? I doubt saying “I will go to Washington and cut the funding for all of your programs.” will get you the total you need to succeed. This is what they should teach in school on how our government works.

    One of these days, the establishment government is going to go too far in stepping on us and there will be hell to pay. To all who can hear: “listen up frogs… the water is starting to boil.”

      Awesome post Josh!

    • JimmyBleep

      Politicians begin selling out when they start their careers. They run for mayor or selectman and they have to cater to the local police/fire unions, the elderly, the parents, and whoever else represents a big chunk of the market so they can get big voting blocks to vote for them. To do otherwise is political suicide. This happens without money even being a factor. People have figured out how to cheat the voting system.

      • Josh

        …and once they get the taste for money and power, it is usually all over. Every once in a while, you find a true patriot who wants to set things right. They run on a platform of reform and exposure. They get a crowd behind them, because every single REAL citizen wants this mega bureaucracy to be overhauled. Then they are smeared, cut down, demeaned, and have their character assassinated and their families ripped apart by the established parties who love darkness want nothing more than to snuff out the light of truth so they can continue in their dark ways.

        Thanks for your reply. God help us all.

      Absolutely spot on, Josh. Excellent post, one everyone should read before spouting off about which is the better RINO. Another person isn’t going to make things different, it’s the system that’s broken.

      We had a case here in Canada in the province of Alberta – there was just an election where an upstart party was running against the established RINO-type party.

      It came out that members of the provincial government were being paid to sit on committees that didn’t exist and were getting paid for that. This was in both parties and naturally, people were outraged. Out of all of these committee members who were asked to give the money back for sitting on these non-existent committees only one provincial representative gave it back-one from the upstart party.

      It’s all about the entitlement culture that pervades the US and Canada, from people who have become so dependent on the government to fix things and the big government that evolves from that-they feed off of each other till the system is so bloated it will take something like you suggest, to return things to what they were, what they should be.

      “One of these days, the establishment government is going to go too far in stepping on us and there will be hell to pay. To all who can hear: “listen up frogs… the water is starting to boil.”

      We’re rapidly reaching the boiling point as each day passes.

      well said Josh.

    • ApplePie101

      We should feel proud this primary. Past primaries have been exactly what you said, the GOP crowning their candidate and telling us to go vote for him. This time, we forced a real primary on the party, and supported some genuine conservative candidates. We gave the kingmakers enough of a fight that the masks slipped off and we saw the ugly side of the republican party establishment. The fight is far from over. Keep voting in conservatives in congress, on the state and local level. Be relentless. Don’t forget and (in politics) don’t forgive.

  • 3seven77

    I thought I learned a lot about candidates’ character in the 2008 election. I learned even more this time around. I am tired of the “establishment” of BOTH parties endorsing the candidate with the worst character of all. I keep telling myself “Romney’s not so bad”. But the reality is Romney’s not so good.

    I love Newt for his depth of knowledge, his intelligence, his humor, his take-no-prisoners approach to the media, his impatience with stupidity, his love of America, and his Big Ideas (including the Moon Base!).

    Honestly, if Romney wins in November I’ll be relieved that Obama is gone. But I will always know we wound up with second-best.

    We coulda had NEWT.

    • kong1967

      2nd best? You’d rank him that high? I only had him ahead of Ron Paul.

      • 3seven77

        I’m sorry Kong. I didn’t phrase that well. I meant second-best as an “also-ran”. Also-ran is a racing term that is used to describe all the horses that were in a race.

        Actually Willard was never on my radar as a candidate. He was behind Newt. And Perry. And Cain. Somewhere in the back of the pack with Paul and Huntsman.

        • kong1967

          Yep, me too. I wanted Bachmann or Perry before they bit the dust.

      • FreeManWalking

        I don’t think there is a person out there that would excite, enthuse the base for Romney like Sarah did for McCaint.

        Part of that is because we have been BEAT into the ground by the Moderates.

        • JimmyBleep

          Moderates are huge in the general election. People to the extremes are far more likely to work in races for the House. Sometimes the Senate. Nobody running hard right or hard left can win the general. But I think Sarah took away votes from McCain. In the least, it killed one of the strongest knocks on Obama, that being inexperience in the White House.

  • StNikao

    Newt promised to stay in. Please Newt – do not bow or surrender to the RNC.

    Please don’t drop out and leave us with only the abhorrent, repugnant, ruthless, opportunist Romney. He is no different from Obama. He is not a man of honor and truth. He is a man without integrity and conscience. He is a ruthless profiteer who has stolen workers pension funds, billions from the US taxpayer, and a bald-faced liar, a liberal supporter of abortion, even late term, gay marriage, and every other radical socialist agenda. He is a usurper of power and a law-breaker. He does not care about the good of our nation, only his own gain and power. Like Obama, he is also a leader in an aggressive, evil spiritual movement that is a corruption and distortion of the Bible and four thousand years of Judeo-Christianity.

    These are all grievous violations of GOD’s Word, Commandments, Order, Design.

    Romney has violated both his own religion and Biblical Judeo-Christianity as Martin Bashir, Rabbi Levin, many others have pointed out throughout Romney’s two races.
    For The Record – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyolbpbeAMI
    Rabbi Levin – http://www.rabbilevin.com/2012/04/rabbi-levin-obama-or-romney-gd-forbid.html

    This year, if the US is to survive, we must repent, turn away from and vote against the sins of abortion and sexual promiscuity. This is the 40th year since Roe vs Wade made killing unborn infants. A vote for Romney will seal the fate of the US in God’s eyes. We will suffer the punishment of GOD’s wrath. The enemies of GOD, those who hate and defy GOD’s Word and Commandments, who hate America and wreak terror, violence and disease will rule over us. (Leviticus 26:16-17) With Obama, this has already begun. With Romney, it will be sealed.

    Responsible conservatives with conscience and integrity, Christian and Jewish conservatives, who fear GOD more than man, who have done their homework and researched the man and his record will never ever vote for Romney or Obama.

    Sit suffragator cave. Suffragium non malus.

      The country isn’t at the place where Santorum, Bachman, Perry, Gingrich are at-there is not a lot you can do about that except get involved locally to get people educated…but we still need to get Obama out of office. See to it that your local reps that go to DC hold whoever becomes President accountable-but you know if O gets in that will be IMPOSSIBLE!

  • nibblesyble

    God Speed my Newt, you were disparaged, treated like a clown, and tossed aside for a man that looks and acts as plastic as a Ken Doll(but with a mean side!) History will remember you, Newt, as you deserve. To my fellow Newt supporters…you rock and I am with you! To America, who I hold in high esteem and wish my country had your balls…you are falling and losing what made you kick-ass…third party??? Nuke…..I am a’comin’ for that Island!!

    • drphibes

      Great thoughts. Newt was my consistent favorite throughout the campaign. Among the best MINDS the Oval Office might have had in modern times. He would have represented a return to serious thought-leadership, a return from adolescent to adult leadership.

    I’ll miss him. Yes, he’s not perfect and it would have been difficult for him to win in this race, but I hope he continues to serve this country with many of his great insights and ideas.

      Agreed!

    • 3boojums

      I’m hoping and assuming that Newt will do for Romney what he did with gas prices recently. he can “follow” Obama like he said he would if he were the nominee and correct Obama’s “facts”. He can be a real pain in the ass to Obama

    I’ve had no dog in this fight, for quite some time, and this only cements that distance. Gingrich wasn’t a Conservative, himself, but Willard CERTAINLY isn’t. Hannity, laughably, today claimed that the race has made Romney “stronger”. A stronger what? A stronger ivory tower socialist? Every weakness he’d ever had, is still very much in place. His lies about being such a beloved politician were busted when Gingrich called him out on it. His lies about respecting religious freedom were called out by Redstate.

    http://www.redstate.com/streiff/2012/02/24/mitt-romney-tells-the-big-lie-on-honoring-religious-conscience/

    He’s a leftist hypocrite that advocated illegally and un-Constitutionally stealing taxpayer money through criminal fraud, in order to bail out his Wall Street buddies, and in the same breath condemns Obama and others for using that money for “bailing out” Chrysler and GM. His word is worthless. He’s like the comical description a parody piece did of Lurch (Sen. Kerry – Romney Country Club and Gray Puopon Buddy): he’s got more flip-flops than the House of Pancakes. He’s a class warfare monger, just like Obama, evidenced by his ludicrous crowing about his great wish to raise taxes on the rich (and, like all the other richies that crow about that, has never voluntarily paid more). He’s a serial liar (he even lies about his FIRST NAME).

    And yet, people (actually Romney shills; I’m not sure they’re really people, in some cases) are still whining that Romney’s the shoo-in that will be the savior of America, all without answering a single question I’ve posed about Romney’s glaring shortcomings that he’s made no effort to address, himself. “Hail to the Chief” will go away, replaced by this:

    It’s just as well he didn’t get ‘Tampa’ tattooed on his forehead. He accomplished his purpose, preventing Santorum from getting the nomination. Now he and Calista can slide back into obscurity.

    • nibblesyble

      Nice….really nice you ought to be proud of that. I could say the same thing about Santo after SC couldn’t I? Don’t come on this thread, make that kind of statement and not expect a ‘retort’ made back at ya. Don’t bother to reply to this Apple, you revealed yourself and I am not interested.

      • GraceKnows

        Nibbles, you are so right. I’m frankly so tired of people putting Newt and Callista down, judging.


        As to his collection of delegates, which he has not released: “Our delegates will go to the convention and have a say and an impact,” he said. “We want them to continue to reflect the things our campaign stood for and present a strong conservative voice at the convention. We must have a candidate who will keep faith and traditions alive in the country.” (NewsMax)

        Absolute, unfettered, in-you-face EGO! Who helped Rick along all the years he was in Washington (except Newt didn’t participate in K-Street or the John Ensign debacle)?? NEWT!! Who never had a bad word to say about Santo, throughout the presidential race? NEWT!!

        To me, Rick’s ego has always been his downfall, and it’s his own ego that will not allow him to be a decent, humble man, and give his delegates to Newt. Oh, wait! I mean, who COULD HAVE given his delegates to Newt.

        Any questions?

        • nibblesyble

          Thanks Grace, and so true, not once have I taken to these threads and put down what I really wanted to, out of respect for Santo-lovers(mostly ABiC, because I respect her and appreciate her being classy in her support for Santo) So I used restraint. When Santo left the race, I went over to that thread and tried to comfort those that felt upset and were at a loss. Then I come here and see all of these nasty comments and misplaced anger and I have had enough! I say to any Santo-lover that wants to mire themselves in this…bring it!

          • GraceKnows

            Thanks, nibbles! I know, I did the same thing when Rick dropped out. I really think he fooled a lot of people, sadly.

            I guess I really cut loose on him! I, too, don’t want to offend people (although sometimes I do anyway; I do have a temper), and you’re right about ABiC! She is a sweetheart, kinda like you.

            • nibblesyble

              Yeesh Grace, are you trying to make me blush! Right back at you. I have a temper too, and I have let loose myself, and sometimes I don’t even feel guilty(now that is something I have to let the Holy Spirit work on eh?) You are the best, thanks for going on this journey with me!

              • GraceKnows

                Yes, I have to remember. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Gal. 5:22-23) I am struggling sometimes with at least three or four of those!

                I appreciate the journey with you, too, nibblesyble. We’ll just keep praying for our country!

            • nibblesyble

              Silly! There are no Newt-losers! Yes, it is time to move forward, but give us a few days to assimilate and try and get some umph for your number one guy..who now has to be ours through default. I hope you don’t expect the same passion or verve for Romney…I can’t say I feel anything but ambivalence so far. However, I think that will change going forward..here is to finally being united and on the same side..the man-child must go. BTW, if Romney were smart he would put Newt upfront and on the attack which he is brilliant at, now that would make Romney more palatable.

                He never really was “my” number one guy… I don’t think anyone in the 2012 field ever was. I just didn’t allow myself to get distracted by the second tier candidates that (everyone) knew wouldn’t go onto be the nominee.

                We will have better days as a Country.. as soon as we rid our Nation of Obama. And yes, as it played out, it will be Romney.. So be it… lets just do it!

  • nibblesyble

    I could stand some better days going forward, I am weary of this crap economy and the dismal outlook we as North American’s are facing. I don’t want to become Europe that is for sure…Romney better pull it out and do a better job winning people over..so far he has sucked. He has less money than the Obama smear machine so he and his crew need to figure out how to inspire and make people see a better future. The fact that Obama is still viable scares the bejusus outta me…he should be at 30 percent or less the way he has conducted himself as leader of the free world. We all have our work cut out for us don’t we? Thanks for the song..my kids are dancing as I write this. :)
