If Gingrich is FOR RomneyCARE and Romney LIES
and the rest of the Romney facade,
then he is no longer one of us.
Goodbye Mr. Speaker.
O wait..I forgot...:
Gingrich stumps for Romney, calls for unity
“At the convention, he stressed the importance of making a Republican sweep not only in the Oval Office this November, but also in elections across the country.
“I am not for a narrow victory,” he said. “I am for crushing the left in every single way.”
Gingrich’s campaign appearances this weekend marked the first of a string of stops the former candidate will make for his former opponent. The two will share the stage together for the first time at the end of May at a Las Vegas campaign event.”
This is not unexpected. All major party figures will endorse Romney—with varying degrees of emotion and support. To do otherwise would be political suicide.
But as far as rallying around Romney...I think that I’ll pass. I received a Romney fundraising call this week wanting me to donate some amount (perhaps $100; I forget). When I declined, they asked for a lesser amount. I explained that I was a social conservative, and that Mitt Romney was my enemy.
Dead silence...for about ten seconds.
Then they hung up.
I don’t need someone to agree with me 100%, but I will support the Republican Party nominee when the Party nominates someone that is not my enemy.
That didn’t happen this year.
Maybe next election cycle they will seek my vote. Maybe not. But they will not get my vote by nominating a social (ahem; wink, wink) moderate.
BTW If you disagree please don't waste the bandwidth telling me so...
I’m more and more glad he lost.
I suppose a Newt has to be a team player...otoh, would hate to find out that Beck was right about him.
For conservatives... electing either of them should not be acceptable
Good for Newt. I was afraid he was gonna be half-hearted about his endorsement.
No one needs to be half hearted here, we need to defeat Obama in a landslide, no matter who your favorite candidate was before Romney won.
And please don’t come over here from some parallel universe and say Romney hasn’t won yet. He has.
Sorry, Newtie. No sale.
“Gingrich to Georgia GOP: Let’s rally around Romney”
Free Republic to Newt Gingrich: Hell NO!
It’s like saying “let’s give North Korea some Nukes... they’re NOT AS BAD AS IRAN!”
These are the leaders of the GOP, similar to a Corporation, these are the CEOs, Presidents, vice Presidents, division heads, Managers, and so on, they are career members of the GOP party, it doesn’t surprise me when they endorse their nominee, and get on board.
Ya boil it all down and Newt is 100% correct, no matter how much it may pain him to campaign for Romney.
One can either a) back Romney or b) back Obama by default. For any serious, thinking conservative, there is no question on this choice. If Obama is handed another term, he will gleefully finish implementing his fascist blueprint for America. Plans are already in place to go around Congress with XOs, mandates, regulations and any other means necessary to achieve Obama’s remaking of America.
