Good Riddance. A very insightful commentary into the problem that is Newt Gingrich: http://thesouthcarolinaconservative.com/2012/04/24/newt-gingrich-the-grinch-who-stole-conservatism/
That being said, I wish Newt and Calista all the best.
Sigh, go away Jolly..seriously why on earth would anyone come on this thread to make a petty remark and actually link a smear against Newt who has bowed out?? I have plenty of links for you regarding your Saint Rick, but he is out and I respect the Santo-lovers on this site, ahem too bad you can't show us the same restraint.
I know that was odd of him waiting for a week to drop out.
BUT since he was the closest thing we had to Ronald Reagan, I cut him some slack on this. He speackes to my heart and brain and soul even when quitting. O makes me want to puke....sorry for that visual.
BUT, have you EVER seens so many in news and celebs waiting to pounce on him with all the usual derogatory ATTACK slapstick trash talk!Seems Shepard Smith of FOX has joined the clueless crowd now, I won't be upset if FOX cuts him loose some day.
I just don't see NEWT as libs and progs and even re-pubes do.
They do not understand how AMERICA works, they only see a man with confidence and ideas as some sort of delusinal character. LIke they say, everyone thought the WRIGHT brothers were quacks too !
WE have to have goals and challenges, not smarmy snarky attacks all day long !
I think they may be jealous of his power to persuade and have great ideas, and yes, he like to do it all himself, and that may be his biggest fault, wanting to manage himself. NO ONE can manage NEWT, not even NEWT.
I love that his daughters helped him moderate, but not enough believers fell behind him, and Mitt has too much MONEY. NEWT has a following, always will have.
I don't think Mitt has what it takes to manage US GOVT, and I think NEWT DID PERIOD !
All the pressure on Mitt now, and if he is smart, he WILL find a place to use NEWT and his ideas. Cost only 4.5 million, and that is a bargain.
Hey add in Little Ricky too, they already signed up Michelle Bachman, good for her!
O-BLAME-O has got to GOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!
NEWT's next book.......PROGS in SPACE....for his and OUR grandchildren.
It is very clear that in America, he with the most money wins! Why even go through a primary process?
First Bozo and now Romney!
Newt was my choice and I do hope I will not be on this site next year saying that age-old phrase..."I told you so"....when Romney flops and flails about like the milquetoast, babysittter extraordinaire that he is!
You're welcome, Newt. We did what we could.
We appreciate all your efforts, your wonderful wisdom, and your valuable insights. But the 'unwashed masses' that listen only to the lamestream media rather than the truth decided that it just wasn't going to be. To the moon, Alice!
RIP, America. that says it all doesn't it Nuke? It was a tiring, thrilling, and maddening journey but I am glad we got to go through it, and especially with you and all of your wonderful wisdom. On to our next journey my friend....that Island..seriously where is it?? ; )
I said RIP because of the way they have pushed our society. But with great patriots like yourself and many here at TRS, I still think we can turn this tide.
The boat will be waiting at the dock should we fail, but for now, we will carry on the fight. The good Lord knows the proper path for us all. :)
I agree with you, nukeman! POW! To the moon! :) God's got something in store for Newt and for us, nukeman.
The GOPe, along with other establishment insiders with boatloads of money and influence, bear the blame for a presidential primary race that was in the bag from the get-go. Whenever they felt threatened, they would bring out the Attack Machine, which was primed and full of lies and distortions. That's where your 'unwashed masses' come in, who lap it up and believe every word that bombards them, but don't bother seeking the truth.
This is how they got Obama in. Don't look at that man behind the curtain! ~ Look over here! No, over there! Anywhere but where the truth is found.
So true Grace, we as people, unless we are plugged in, will be distracted by a pretty face and some good rheteric. Newt wasn't pretty, but he was solid and brilliant, and had real solutions and a plan to kick the bums out..that is why he had to be defeated at all costs. When he looks back over this month's long campaign he can be proud of what he did and how much of a real threat he was. It won't make up for the horrid smears he and Calista went through, the disgusting articles(even now!) the disdain(that is what get's to me the most and how dare they!!!) and the bitterness these so-called conservative sites, pundits and political figures displayed, but we saw the truth and we tried to warn people. It was not because he didn't fight hard enough, it is because the ememy had the secret weapon..causing the voters to be sheeple, with their million dollar ads and their pretty boy at the helm. It is a repeat with the dems in 08 and pretty boy Obama, what a darn shame. Romney is better than Obama, but then again so is my cat so there you go. Loved what you wrote(as always) and I know Newt is and always will be a force that no one can knock down.
YEEES! Man, I wish I had been there for that call, I hope they are getting a lot of that from true patriots that are tired of their machine. Girl, I didn't think I could respect you more but after that..wooeee it is thru the roof! I love a good smack-down and I know God is proud of you for standing up to these people that look at us scathingly and then have the nerve to ask for funds. I love when Jesus went into the market place with the whip he fashioned himself and made his righteous anger known...that is what you did my friend and there is no need to be sorry!
Thankfully, Nibblesyble, there's plenty of evidence here that a number of people have really been *listening* to Newt. I feel like I know him personally, almost! Once again, you are absolutely right!
I watched the whole video of Newt's speech, and I just hope Romney has the good sense to listen to him, as well! That is, of course, barring a BIG miracle that could happen in Tampa.
OMG!! I just got a call from the RNC. The guy wanted me to fork over a "modest" hundred bucks, and when I said no, he said, "We really need the funds bad"! So I said, "Well, if Mitt hadn't spent so much money trying to take down Newt... that's who I wanted!! Thanks!" CLICK!
Sorry, but I haven't had my chance at one of those fund-raising dudes until now. ;)
Thank you Newt for teaching us that a good conservative is a conservative with discretion, and not someone that always takes the most extreme position on things, and all this while still being principled. Thank you Newt, you have taught me a lot.
Anyone can be smeared and Newt sure was, over and over by the left and the establishment right. Those that just believe anything without verification are the real problem in this country. Newt was and still is a great man that served this nation as a patriot and an accomplished leader. God bless him for his service to our nation! He loves his country which is a lot more than I can say for many people on the left and the right. We love you Newt!
“We bend over backwards not to treat ourselves any differently than the rest of the community,” Denis Finley told Fox News. “We don’t cover simple attacks. The fact that we know these folks doesn’t make any difference. We don’t want to be perceived as doing something different for ourselves than we would do for the rest of the community.”
COWARDS. This makes you complicit.
“We have no indication that this is racial, no indication that this was anything other than – so far – a simple attack,” he said. “There have been all kinds of innuendo, assumptions, prejudices, you name it revolving around the story but the fact is it was a simple attack and we didn’t put it in the paper.”
Then you attempt to make the victims and the newspaper's critics "prejudiced."
WEASEL. Maybe if YOU had been one of the victims...?
This is not the first case of mob violence by blacks on whites which has been studiously swept under the rug, dismissed, and in most cases, the victims themselves derided, ignored, ridiculed, or patronized.
This is Obama's world.
Great example of how the liberal establishment are still race wimps. They, the newspapers and the police department downplay these ignorant racist attacks and public beating of white people because the liberals still think the black rabble is useful.
The liberal media will be the "next to the last" to discover that nobody is going to buy that racist cover up of black violence any more. The liberals are going to discover very soon that the poor, ignorant, easily bribed and manipulated blacks, the spear tip of the communist/progressive attack has been dulled literally as well as intellectually.
The last to discover that black racism is a lost cause will be the black racist rioters themselves when police every where begin to enforce the laws uniformly, without regard to race.
My best guess is that we will see the end of this black hate violence following the next race riot, inner city burn-down when firemen and police refuse to enter the ghetto and citizens everywhere refuse to use tax payer funds to rebuild it. Look for justice to occur when Zimmerman is acquitted and the blacks take again to th streets to get justice for Trayvon. (I wonder how many black have paid the Trayvon baby mommy for using that phrase?)
The message must be clear. There is a penalty for failing to take advantage of the measures taken to integrate blacks into the culture. Time has run out. The grace period is over.
Here's my opinion I posted to GraceKnows:
These are reporters for THEIR OWN newspaper- of course this is news & should have been reported about! I think it shows a dishonor to their employees to not print the story and even offer a reward leading to the capture of the thugs that beat these two reporters & threw a rock at their car!
I don't know, wordsfailme, what you mean by "the Trayvon baby mommy"? I doubt these African Americans were bribed to attack these reporters. I do think that some are taking advantage of the Trayvon situation to excuse criminal behavior.
I think African Americans do not need to give up having their own unique culture. I do believe they, like we all do, need Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. I have heard many times that many black people are incarcerated & I think if deemed appropriate, the police who came to the scene should receive official reprimanding for their handling of this case. It looks like there were a number of people aside from the police? who tried to help the reporters, which sounded positive.
Anyone who's disappointed to see Mr. Gingrich suspend his campaign should take a look at this video:
it might change your mind...
It might change our minds??? Are you nuts! You have here, gathered together a series of distortions and lies, all of which can be easily answered, but I'll bet my last dollar you haven't DONE THE HOMEWORK! And now we're hearing that old Paul has been running around behind the scenes, trying to monkey with delegates?! There is a reason you guys are called 'Paulbots!'
Those of us who have supported Newt over the long haul actually have done all the research, up, down, backwards and forwards. I would suggest you do the same about your candidate.
Absolutely, Graceknows. It's because of all the research that we backed Newt, not in spite of it. Too many people missed that by listening to the smears, from day one. It saddens me, but we must still find a way to save this great nation. I have faith that we can.
Well, I just watched your cute little video as well. It's a prime example of all the false smears that put Newt in the back seat with voters, when people should have been listening to him. I could counter each one of those smears with the facts, but since I see you're touting Ron Paul with the video, I realize the facts don't enter into your conversation.
End of story.
Take it someplace else. There is nothing that will change how we Newt supporters feel about him, we know the good the bad, the ugly but mostly we know the good he has done for the conservative cause. You will find plenty of youtube vid's on all of the former men running, some good some bad, don't waste your time here with that crap..it won't fly I am afraid.
Well I just took a look at the video and it was a total bunch of garbage. It just reinforces my belief that many of my fellow citizens cannot critically think anymore.
"Of all the words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, it might have been." There was so much potential in a guy like Newt. Sad to see him go out this way. But if that's what the Republican voters want, we'll have to accept that. And Newt is absolutely right. If it's a choice between Romney and Obama, the most liberal president in modern American history, then there really is no contest. Romney should be elected in a heartbeat. We just have to convince the other 46% of the population that wants to vote for Obama of that.
Thanks Scoop! Newt is a man that I will always respect and frankly adore...he made me learn more about politics and how it has and will affect my life than any other political figure. My desire to find an avenue in which to support him and find a fair place in which to post and read other Newt supporter's posts brought me here to Right Scoop.(which now Scoop is stuck with me for good!) I weep at what could have been, but he is right...Obama must go and I will do what I can to help achieve that..I'm with ya Newt, as always.
Looks like more than just conservatives are getting bored sh**less with the tired tales of the poor, blameless black victim of slavery and discrimination in this country.
Add the "Millennials." Maybe Jesse, Al, Eric and Barrack, Sheila, and Maxine can take their little racist tap dance and song act to South America. Maybe the South Americans are stupid enough to feel guilty about what happened to somebody great-great-great-grandparents 200 years ago.
Nobody else will ever be TOTALLY SCAMMED by that "black victim" crap in this country again.
Pretty soon, black racists won't be able to sell that shit on any continent on the face of the earth. China, Japan and the rest of Asia, where racism is acceptable, has blacks shut out. Russia has no interest Black immigration.
South American is already black and nobody there feels sorry for another poor, gold tooth high school burglar/drug dealer who can't earn. Australia? Hardly. Middle Eastern countries: They would not integrate a matriarchy with no visible means of support-- No.
Pakistan, No. India, No. Let's see about 60 percent of the planet land area has no use for the black racist guilt trip, except maybe the French who will sheet up with anything. Nope they already over-run with muslims.
So burn down the inner cities. Somebody. Please.
Once again, it appears we will have to choose between Commie Lite or Commie with Heavy Cream. In the end we will again have the worst president money can buy. Shame on everyone who is swayed by poisonous, force-fed rhetoric.
It's not goodbye Newt, only farewell to the campaign for Republican nominee. Newt will be there, keeping Romney honest, calling him on his c**p, being a thorn in the side to the opposition and hopefully, be given a chance to help shape policy.
My secret fantasy is that Romney chooses Newt for VP. Then, after Romney/Gingrich win by a landslide, Romney decides the Presidency is "under his pay grade" (literally - it doesn't pay enough!) and he quits, leaving Newt to take the reins. Newt implements America's perpetual smart energy policy which develops coal, gas and oil, the energy royalties are used to pay the debt off, taxes go way down, employment goes way up, America's foreign policy is based on Peace through strength and that Moon Colony is off to a great start.
Hey, a girl can dream, right? :D
Newt's the best. Please stick around Mr. Speaker. Your country needs you.
Thank you, Newt. I'm praying that you show up at Tampa, and that you're going to have direct input in what goes down there. We need you. We need your patriotism, your intellect, your fighting spirit, your love of our history, and your optimism.
I pray that you will help shape and mold what's ahead for us, that you will have a say in what will happen in Tampa and beyond! :)
You took the words right out of my mind Grace, thank you and God Bless you and all 'True Conservatives'.
Hi, nibblesyble! The more I hear about Newt suspending his campaign, the more I hear that he is determined to be a voice for those that have been ignored in this campaign. And what's up with these articles coming out, saying he endorsed Romney?! He very pointedly did not!
We love you, Newt!
