Firebrand Free Republic Founder Endorses Newt Gingrich With Epic Call to Action
Fox News ^ | January 19, 2012 | Fox News

Posted on 01/20/2012 7:57:08 AM PST by true believer forever

I'm officially endorsing Newt Gingrich for president today. Was going to wait until after Florida, but see no reason to delay. We need Newt to win in South Carolina and Florida to stop any possible momentum building up for the establishment big government, statist, abortionist RINO!!

"They" better be paying attention and pay heed to this. FR is not some light weight site. Learned a looooong time ago, FR has active members and lurkers that have depths of knowledge in a wide spectrum of topics that will deep six anyone not on the level.

Dan Rather, how's he doing these days?

I’m surprised Faux News-Romney even ran this.

The few comments are anti-FR/anti-Newt, of course...

With Santorum now revealed as having actually won the Iowa caucus, and Romney having captured the New Hampshire primary by a smaller margin than expected (and with less than 40% of the vote), what happens in South Carolina is now absolutely critical to the direction of the GOP race.

If Newt can pull out a victory there, then Romney is in deep trouble. It will force a serious reconsideration among party leaders about whether they are backing the wrong horse. Or in Romney's case, the wrong horse's ass. Go Newt!

PLEASE!!! If you have any free time today, go to Newt’s phone banks and make calls into south carolina — the people of South Carolina are soooo nice, they are so easy to talk to, and some of them are really really funny - especially the old guys - who want to tell you all about their experiences in WWII... Please help Newt by calling today... even just a few calls will help...

National phone banks: http://action.newt.org/

And PLEASE try to donate something, anything:

Good job Jim. Time for everyone to get behind Newt. Santorum is a non start nationally. Newt Gingrich is the right person for this moment in history. He will make every effort to cut the size and scope of government and restore the constitutional republic.

If Newt is the candidate, it will be “crotchety old white guy” versus “young, hip, black guy” all over again. And the MSM will play the old ethics stuff over and over again. Buckley’s rule — support the most conservative candidate who is electable. It ain’t Gingrich. It’s Romney.

““crotchety old white guy” ...support the most conservative candidate who is electable. It ain’t Gingrich. It’s Romney.”

You are actually saying Romney is not a “crotchety old white guy” but Newt is??? You’re really funny.

Not to mention Romney isn’t conservative at all. He is and Obama share many primary traits, including the fact that ObamaDeathCare is nothingbut RomneyDeathCare.
