Skip to comments.Newt Not Taking ‘No’ in North Texas
Posted on 04/23/2012 3:43:31 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
This is only 5 days late but necessary to get out. Newt Gingrich invaded the Dallas area last Monday to meet with grassroots leaders and media. Want to know what he said BEHIND closed doors? It aint over - is what happened.
First, I owe an apology to Santorum supporter and long time Twitter friend @Malvenue for being particularly harsh in the face of his defeatist attitude that its all over and Romney is the nominee.
That is both FACTUALLY wrong and wrong as an attitude for any true patriotic conservative. It is FAR from over. No one has reached 1,144 delegates. Despite factually wrong delegate counts (like those that still show Romney getting ALL Florida votes despite a clear legal and actionable position that it is not) is:
[SNIP: great "Jim" stem-winder stump speech/rant]
............You go ahead and give up. Show your kids how to act like John Boehner and the rest of the RINOs if you want. Im fighting not just on principle but on a clear fact that if Romney is nominated EVEN if beats Obama we will end up at the same place we did at the end of the George W. Bush era. Establishing the fact Republicans cant do any better than Democrats.
Dont forget. Your favorite conservatives Paul Ryan and Allen West voted WITH John Boehner to cave to Harry Reid and cut $1 Trillion out of Defense. Do you think Romney will sweep other serious conservatives with backbones into office? He actually LOST GOP members in Massachusetts and brought the number of elected GOP congressman to an all time low. But yeah, Romneys a great answer to revive the Tea Party momentum that worked in 2010 Im sure.
Has Romney EVER shown he can stay consistent for more than a news cycle on ANY issue much less something like repealing ObamaCare? His own advisor is telling us he wont repeal all of it. Another key advisor tells us hes an Etch A Sketch that will wipe all of us promises clean. He already began doing it last week on the Dream Act.
In Dallas, Gingrich reminded supporters that in the Colorado primary last week that almost twice of the delegates WERE NOT for Romney than for him. (23 to 13). AND THIS WAS COLORADO not a deep conservative state like South Carolina or Missouri! Funny, I thought conservatives honored the will of the people not the will of the blowhards who have sold out our movement for 30 pieces of silver.
Its not over FACTUALLY or in the hearts of REAL conservatives.
Six thousand donors rushed to Newt.org to give immediately following Santorums exit. Six thousand patriots who arent willing to let a man named a Top 10 RINO only 7 years ago continue to bury the future of America for our children.
I still run across terribly uninformed people who still call Gingrich a big government progressive (who got it from Glenn Beck who now supports a guy who actually implemented gay marriage, socialized medicine and cap and trade). And Im aghast at the complicit conservative media like Limbaugh, Levin and the like who think somehow there will be a better chance to take Mitt on after hes elected or in 4 years when he has an even STRONGER network. (Dont forget. Republicans are rewarding the guy who couldnt win AGAINST the McCAIN!)
Meanwhile Gingrich not just presents conservative ideas, he goes on the attack with them. He bans any Muslim who hasnt renounced Sharia Law from his campaign. He goes to the NRA and tells them THEY arent aggressive enough. Not only are we going fight for Hillarys attempt to sign away our gun rights to the UN, Gingrich starts a campaign to make the right to bear arm a fundamental HUMAN RIGHT!
.......Katrina Pierson who helped organize the Gingrich Dallas event said with less than 24 hours notice they had a great and very diverse - turnout including African American and young people asking how help him.
Pierson tells me that he stayed until he had talked and shook hands with every one of the 75 people who attended. it raised the spirits for those in Texas who felt he would drop out.
Ill admit it. Even I the steel spined squab of steadfastness was wondering if the meeting with Romney and the softening of Newts tone meant he was aiming for a cabinet job. After hearing the private discussions of those that attended, Im fully persuaded the Georgia General is being absolutely as crafty as George in the 1776 Delaware jungle was. Its a guerilla war by conservatives against RINOs. Real conservatives who actually BELIEVE we shouldnt give up on our principles (again) and despite the odds arent quitting.
Real conservatives who dont just pay lip service to the idea of pledging our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to ensure a BETTER hope than the change the RINO congress presented, then caved on. (Remember the $100 Billion in Boehner budget cuts after the 2010 Tea Party election?).
Sorry. Two years after the height of the Tea Party influence, the RINOs and complicit (and lazy) conservative media have come close to locking it up to compromise captivity if not outright killing it.
If we dont coalesce around Newt Gingrich and stop Romney, Karl Rove will become the head of the GOP. Mitch McConnell will be the new Harry Reid. And the minute the media and libs scream about any conservative legislation, Mitt and his RINO mutts will compromise just like Bob Dole tried to do to Reagan.
Only this time there wont be any Newt Gingrichs to stop them.
And RomneyCare will not be totally repealed after screams of insensitivity by centrists.
DOMA will be too divisive to address.
And no one will do anything but keep trying to patch short term solutions to entitlements while the number of Americans receiving Federal handouts slips over the 50% mark.............................. Continued
He touched all the hot buttons I have boiling inside of me.
The Levin, Limbaugh et al point is also my hottest hot button.
A note to those who actually read all of this...there’s an error where it says Newt will fight FOR Hillary’s attempt through the UN to limit our gun rights, when the word FOR doesn’t belong there. Should simply read, will fight Hillary’s attempt...
Next they’ll show up here and laugh at/bash the writer’s enthusiasm for the event, because there were only 75 people there.
Gotta remember, this was held in a restaurant. And not a large one at that.
It’s the last ditch.
Newt & Perry would do my heart good.
I WISH he would proof his work but......
We'll keep it all straight. Thanks txrangerette -- he does drop words, etc....
I saw where indeed he did drop a word, but I got his meaning.
In this case he ADDED a word where it didn’t fit, and it changed the entire meaning to the exact opposite.
Looks like we’ll need to be his proofreaders.
But I do love his CONTENT.
He needs to slow down!
But he might lose the “fire in his belly” if he did.
He needs an editor/proof reader (thanks for filling in:) ).
