NEWT: Last Conservative Standing
WND ^ | April 16, 2012 | Marylou Barry

Posted on 04/21/2012 9:41:54 PM PDT by MarylousAmerica

Newt’s supporters love him for the exact same reason his detractors hate him: because he is such a fighter. It drives them nuts that he doesn’t throw in the towel, doesn’t slither away from difficult situations and, like a bulldog with a bone, just chomps down harder when the going gets tough. Like a bulldog, he continues to hang on against a much better-financed rival, because he thinks content is more important than suavité, what you are today is more important than mistakes you made 20 years ago and being right is even more important than being president.

This is a very very excellent article. It is well written and effective, and takes just the right tone to convince those remaining on the fence..

Congratulations! You wrote something spectacular! And Newt needs the support...

Thanks for posting this.

I hope Newt keeps fighting on. He has a great message.

The media hates him so I like him. (Go, Newt!)

.....”Romney calls himself pro-life but Refuses to sign either the Susan B. Anthony List 2012 Pro-Life Presidential Leadership Pledge.. or the Personhood USA Personhood Pledge, ....which most early GOP candidates signed gladly months ago.”

.....”Newt signed both pledges and states he believes that life begins at conception”

......”Mitt says he’ll repeal Obamacare.... I say fat chance, since it’s virtually indistinguishable from the Romneycare on which it is based,.. including individual mandates and taxpayer-funded abortions.”

......”Newt, who has said that nationalizing health care hurts everyone and the government does not belong in it at all,... has vowed that if Congress will repeal it by Jan. 20 he will sign the repeal at his Inauguration.”

.....”We haven’t had a real bulldog as a leader since Ronald Reagan, and with our security being threatened by everything from Iranian atomic saber-rattling to Shariah law, we could certainly use one now....... The voyage our nation will be on for the next four years will be the most precarious we’ve ever undertaken, and .....it’s precisely a bulldog I’d feel most comfortable with steering our ship of state.”....

Oh yes!!!!! Go Newt Go!!!

Hopefully, he’ll be able to inspire enough R congresscritters to find their misplaced testicles and begin to clean up some of the mess.

“”Romney calls himself pro-life but Refuses to sign either the Susan B. Anthony List 2012 Pro-Life Presidential Leadership Pledge.. or the Personhood USA Personhood Pledge, ....which most early GOP candidates signed gladly months ago.”

“In the book ‘We Won’t Get Fooled Again’, Steve and Gregg expose what I discovered long go, that there has been a conservative industry created. Consultants, pundits, media types and even some in the faith community use push-button issues to drive us to the polls to vote for certain candidates to protect their deal. Conservative voters have to ask the tough question: ‘Are we moving the dial?’ This is a must read for every conservative voter, and if you start reading it, you won’t want to put it down.”
– J.C. Watts Jr., Former U.S. Congressman from Oklahoma

Hmm. Thread has been up all day about the only conservative in the race, and few freepers even bother to weigh in. So where is all that fire in the eye passion about how we aren't going to settle, we're going to fight to the finish for a conservative alternative to the hated Romney? Guess they're all busy watching a ball game somewhere...

Great question!



Where there's a shell, there's a way.

25 years ago, we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope.
Today we have Obama, no cash, and no hope!

If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.

Or you can get raw with these strings.

How about this gamechanger from America's Got Talent (which they SHOULD have won).

And finally, this, dedicated to the one and only rdb2, WHO HAS RETURNED HOME!.

Either way, the violin is sweet yet LETHAL.

Do it!

The republican vote is split, but despite that, zer0 is dead last, LOL! Either Hannity has fewer Demwits listening/watching, or zer0 is even losing the libs.

And unfortunately, the Paulbots have been at it. I would ignore them, for they cheat on a lot of polls. News flash, Paultards: If you had to cheat, you didn’t win. Cheating = lying leftists.

Romney 20.33%

Gingrich 30.5%

Santorum 14.89%

Paul 32.08%

Obama 2.2%

What are the odds that ANY Republican could carry even one of those states in the general?

Probably slim and none with slim having left the building. They all democrat in the 08 general.

But they do impact who will win the GOP nomination...

I find it so strange that 3 of those states have had R governors in recent memory. So, too, did MA, as we all know. But I guess the ‘type’ of R who can get elected in the northeast can’t get the nomination or, if he can (i.e., probably Romney), he doesn’t appeal to the R base, nationally.
