Gingrich: GOP Race "Probably Six Months" From Ending
Fox News ^ | January 31, 2012 | Joy Lin

ORLANDO, Florida - Newt Gingrich's campaign announced Tuesday it raised $5 million dollars in January on top of the $10 million raised last quarter, however aides would not indicate how much cash the campaign has on hand -- a critical number for determining whether they can make it through the summer as the former speaker has pledged to do.

This weekend the candidate told Bloomberg News that his campaign was down to approximately $600,000 cash on hand and spending money as quickly as they get it. Since then spokesman R.C. Hammond has said the candidate misspoke and the $600,000 was referring to the amount the campaign had entering the South Carolina primary and they have since raised $2.5 million in money bombs.

However, when pressed, Hammond was unwilling to give a figure for how much cash they have right now.

Gingrich dropped by a polling station at First Baptist Church of Windermere for his first stop on primary day, shaking hands with voters and swarmed by cameras. Mitt Romney has taken a double digit lead in polls leading up to Tuesday but Gingrich told reporter he didn't expect to "lose big" here.

American Patriots of 2012 ... today in Florida, and across America .... from sea to shining sea .... we stand at the Crossroads of Destiny ...

We have ALEADY won today's "political battle" ... regardless of how the final Florida votes are tallied tonight ...

Why ?

Because as in "Lord of the Rings" ... the call to battle and Honor and Glory have (indeed) been answered ... from Patriots across this great land we call "America" ...

A gallant Call to Arms ... to Liberty, to preserve the Land that John Paul Jones defended as he cried-out "We Have Not Yet Begun to Fight" ...

Henry V ... in his St. Crispin's day Speech ... stood on the same kind of earth we see today ...

To the Ann Coulters, and her traitorous breed ... the Nikki Haleys, Mark Steyns, Bob Doles, Chris Christies ....

We "American Patriots" respond with:

"The (Traitor's) passport shall be made, and crowns for convoy put into their purse ...

"We would not die in their company whose fellowship they fear to die with us" ...



Let's us resolve ... this day ... to WIN the BATTLE for America's Renaissance of Liberty, Prosperity ... and Discovery to the Stars created by The Almighty ...



God Bless America !

Georgia has more delegates than Florida.

Keep the faith. Rominee is not even close to the nomination.

Newt has GOT to stay in this race!! I seriously don’t think I could march into the voting booth and vote for Romney. Our PA primary is April 20th....we are backing Speaker Gingrich, case closed! Romney, in my opinion will spend millions if necessary to win this GOP nomination. We have a fractured party and the Paul supporters are hungry for him as well!! But BHO has a billion dollar war chest to win a second term....it’s a frightening thought indeed!

The presidency is a dream come true for the LDS. And the LDS is RICH!!!

Romney has unlimited funds available to purchase the presidency for the LDS.

Once they have it (knowing they can purchase it)...why would they ever let it go?

but Newt puts his allegiance to a foreign Eurotrashier monarch in Rome

I don't think that is true. Just because a person becomes a Catholic does not mean they put the Pope ahead of the County.

In fact, a dear friend of mine who is a devout Catholic thinks the Pope may be the AntiChrist.;-)

Newt is a patriot...opinions to the contrary are bullsh!t!

Not a fan of Romney, but Newt puts his allegiance to a foreign Eurotrashier monarch in Rome, over his fidelity to the constitution.

That's a lie and stop smearing the Pope!

Just one more note. Romney is an extraordinarily devout Mormon and a powerful figure within his "church" (his ancestors were there at the beginning...the Pratts, for example) If he were a Catholic, he would be a Cardinal.

And, if I understand it correctly, he REALLY takes orders from the Prophet (the Current Prophet, that is). He has taken sacred vows to do so and if he were to violate his vows...he would be rejecting his "church."

There are some serious authorities on LDS here at FR (some of which are ex-Mormons). LDS prophetic goals are a really big deal. A takeover of America is a really big deal to them!

Or so I have been told recently.;-)

I am just a lowly peasant...trying to spread the truth as I humbly know it.

He’s sure managed to bury the religion questions during this campaign, unlike in ‘08.

Guaranteed it won’t stay buried if he’s the nominee.

I read an article today (I think it was by that worm, Frank Rich) positing that the reason Romney comes across as inauthentic is because he's hiding the thing most important to him...his Mormonism.

Hiding a big part of oneself in the closet makes one into a cardboard figure...like Romney.

I prefer the Constitutional principles of the Founders to the hocus pocus of the clowns in collars and cassocks.

You do realize that the current President of Italy (Napolitano) is an atheist, btw.

In case you're wondering, I'm supporting the ONLY candidate willing to restore limited government, without partiality to one's personal confession.

>”but Newt puts his allegiance to a foreign Eurotrashier monarch in Rome”<

This is the comment you made that I was replying to. Looks like your original Post was deleted by the Mods.

Apparently you believe that Newt thinks the Pope supersedes the Constitutional principles of the Founders. I have no idea where you get that from and your reply to me made no sense.

Vote Ron Paul if you like, but it just means another term for Obama and the end of the United States as we know it. At least you will have some great stories for the “What if Ron Paul Won” annual barbecue and tin hat beauty contest.

If memory serves, the character Clemenza was a Catholic, not a good Catholic, but a Catholic nonetheless. Might be time to change your handle to something less ethnic.

A cultural Catholic is merely an agnostic without balls.

Religion and ethnicity are meaningless in the 21st century US unless you are an unassimilated fool. A huge portion of our ancestral homeland is secular, hence the fact that it has an atheist president and the Church has had difficulty attracting men for a very long time. Italy ain't the Phillipines when it comes to Catholicism, and my Italian grandfather himself was an anti-clerical agnostic. 100 years ago, the Irish hierarchy was shocked at the lack of devotedness amongst Italian immigrants (especially the men) as compared to the Poles, Germans, etc.

I am a 21st century educated white American. I can choose to believe or NOT believe what I want. The fact is that our founders were no fans of the RCC due to its hostility to our founding principles. See my attenuated tag line as a case in point.

“The presidency is a dream come true for the LDS. And the LDS is RICH!!!”

I do know that a president Mitt would be a huge boon to Mormon evangelism. “Knock, knock. Hello Madam. We are Mormons, just like President Romney. Would you like to hear more about the exciting faith that helped Mitt make his $250 million and go onto become president?”

A friend was saying that the Mormons are a hierarchical church and that there are two levels above Mitt who basically can tell him to do anything and he is obliged as an underling. Is that true?

I was just commenting on your post regarding Gingrich.

I'm not sure what your motivation was in attacking his Faith, but please don't think I have an issue with your belief system. It really doesn't concern me.

Have a good evening my FRiend...

No one even mentions my choice Rick Santorum. Sigh...I do not like Newt’s whiny arrogance. There’s a reason he didn’t win vs Mitt and some of it has to do with his inability to raise enough money to fight. He also has a poorly organized team of advisors, JMO. I can’t warm up to him, sorry but I just can’t.

It will be interesting to see what the rest of the nation thinks so don’t bite my head off because I don’t agree with everyone’s love of Newt.

I hope that all of us will vote for the GOPer left standing in November, whoever it is. We have to eject the chimp in chief...anyone but obammmie!

All the states are experiments for the various GOP wannabes. It’s true, Newt hardly spent squat in Florida, while Mitt bought tons of sh*t, all aimed at Newt. That wasn’t true in South Carolina. But can Mitt buy that kind of sh*t in every state? Even across most of the South? Color me deeply skeptical. Especially when he tries to do it in Texas.
