Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney for president Thursday, saying he's impressed by the Republican candidate's debate prowess and believes he could easily beat President Obama in November. 

"Mitt is tough. He's smart. He's sharp. He's not going to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country that we all love," Trump said in Las Vegas, telling the candidate to "go out and get 'em." 

The real estate mogul, speaking briefly with reporters before the announcement, said that even though he "never knew" Romney before the race began, he's come to know him in recent months. 

"His general attitude and the last two debates were very impressive," Trump said. 

He also cited Romney's position on China, calling the former Massachusetts governor

Common sense be damned.

No such thing as "common sense" in elections....we'd not have the dipwad in our house if the American people had any. There's a reason the media's playing....they know in the USA the edia calls the shots....and the people follow.

What's really funny is when you hear people talk at work....you can tell who they listen to because they quote the latest news pundit they're listning to.

The evil powers behind the scenes. Surely, you know there are. A very very simple example is all those who came against clinton, had the IRS on them. Why? Because they can. They literally could put him out of business and in the meantime make his life miserable. GOP E or forget it - those who are power hungry politicians know this.

“head up in the cloud” types that are very common here. I am not bragging any other way.

Yes you are. You sound like Obama when he carried on about Americans, he sees them as "heads up in the clouds" only they grasp onto Bibles, guns etc. So yes, you do brag.

Not so sure and wasn’t so sure about all those birthers fawning over Trump when the BC produced was declared fraud.

Quite frankly I think Trump is a useful idiot for the regime.

Trump’s endorsement is worthless, his word is worthless and he is a progressive by nature.

You guys who keep knocking Freepers are the most disgusting among any that the candidates might say and do...proving once again you love the sound of the bite between your lips as you chew on your fellow freepers.

Most Freepers are fully aware of who and what Trump is...and they also know this is political theater....and we all enjoy the “show” when it’s played as that....and we play into as well. But you are wrong to underestimate Freepers...absolutely wrong.

I stand by my earlier verdict (in the "Trump is gonna endorse Newt" thread): An endorsement by Trump doesn't mean much. It gets you two or three votes from delusional NBC viewers.

Other than that, the fact that he endorsed ANYone shows that he's not likely to jump into the race himself, signalling conservatives that the time to wait for a third option is over and that they need to coalesce around one candidate. Between Paul, Santorum and Gingrich, Newt's the only viable one.

Huh?

At risk of sounding like a tin-foil wacko, it’s an even bet that the GOP-E does NOT want to win this election. They are either (1) happy with Obammunism (2) unwilling to tackle this economy that they think will continue tanking, so why get the blame, (3) uninterested in stopping the socialist slide, or (4) All of the above.

I don’t think Trump would have been more than a flash in the pan if he had gotten into the race - people would have been amused, but that would have been it - and he realized this. He cited Romney’s electability but I think he’s reading the Wall Street Journal script...even if you look at the GOP primaries so far, nothing gives the impression that Romney would get more voters, because his numbers simply haven’t changed, even $20 million later. Nobody really wants Romney, and if it weren’t for the fact that Romney can pay for his campaign staff out of his own pocket, he probably wouldn’t have any campaign staff.

Trump will attract a few people because he’s flaky and likeable, and Romney is seriously lacking on the likeability quotient.

Romney appeals mostly to elderly ladies who think he’s such a nice young man and reminds them of the Mormon missionary who came to their door and just wore the nicest white shirt...the fact that he had that nutty look in his eye and couldn’t give a straight answer to a single question is lost on people like her, unfortunately.

I think it's all internal. The GOP establishment wants to marginalize the 30-35% of the party that is demanding real changes. I believe the goal is to be so moderate/liberal that they gain the middle and left of center. If they can do this they don't need the right.

In retrospect it looks like this started almost immediately after the 2010 elections when they began down playing the role obamacare had and said it was all about financial concerns. We will see how this plays out. I know my wife and I are starting to believe we don't have a party to represent us, exactly what the Rats want.

I think the winner in all this is Obama’s team, they must love how we’re being whipsawed.

Take a look at the (some consistent/some not) bashing back and forth here between just a few hours on the “endorsing Newt” thread.

Some ITYS’s form some posters, some very consistent. Anyway, it’s interesting to see what “they” can do to us.


Trump has one HUGE strength. He can shut the media up. And put them on his side because they are terrified of him. BIG HUGE advantage. And also I think he works with Sarah - he loves her and she likes him. These 2 are on to something.

As the world knows, Trump is a very successful businessman. Remember Mitt turned down that debate w/Trump as moderator for a reason. Mitt would have been toast if he accepted and Mitt knew it. The man is weak, very weak.

Newt is a far better businessman than Mitt. Instead of bringing his brilliance to a company, he chose to go the political route because of his love for America. That is where he put his focus, where his heart is.

He balanced the budget quickly and got things done with opposition. It’s easier to get things done when a company is geared in one direction unlike DC.

Then there is the work ethic - we can agree that is Trump’s mo as well as Newt’s. This endorsement does not surprise me at all. He knows the one more than capable of turning around America. Mitt can fool those everyday voters with lies but never a savvy successful businessman like Trump.

This should play well with the Trump Chumps that actually believed he was running.

What ever happened to Trumps investigators on Hawaii? He said they uncovered striking evidence that Obama was not eligible to run, and he would SOON show it, then he disappears. Now the same MSM that made him a Republican star won’t ask him about his past claims.

Trump Chumps never learn!

This looks even worse for Romney than it would have for Newt if he was the one blessed by Trump. Romney wouldnt even join a debate moderated by Trump, yet Trump picks him. .

As I recall there were a few threads in December where some giddy with Newt were singing the praise for Trump.

In hindsight this isn’t surprising bc Romney emphasizes making China play by the rules and that is Trump’s main theme.

We all might as well go ahead and throw up and get it over with. Before it’s over Sarah will be cam”pain”ing with Mitts. As will Newt. As will Bachman. As will Santorum. As will Cain if he’s wanted. Ron Paul is the only one who won’t be playing.

And don’t be surprised if Steve Wynn endorses Romney.

Then come 2013, obama is sworn in for a second term and we watch it all go away.

What? FREEPERS were cheering that he was going to endorse Newt and calling him a great conservative.

I've learned from Christine O'Donnell debacle that many conservatives (many Freepers included) are quick to fall for someone who says things they want to hear. Whether or not they are connected to reality, it's irrelevant. Or whether the person's actions in the past--if we look carefully--embodied conservative principles. It doesn't matter either. As long as the person says the 'right' things today, that's what count.

>> You guys who keep knocking Freepers are the most disgusting among any that the candidates might say and do... <<

Excuse me, I'm not knocking other "Freepers" as a whole. Most freepers realize Trump is a con-artist. I'm knocking the small minority of freepers on this board who were (and continue to be) convinced Trump is serious about the birther stuff and is some great patriot who is going to take down Obama. Those freepers are wrong, just like the freepers who swooned over Romney in 2008 and fantasized over a "McCain/Romney" ticket. This is a conservative forum and most freepers are solid conservatives. The small minority who are not deserve to have to actions questioned. I'm going to call freepers out who support liberals, sorry if that offends you.

>> proving once again you love the sound of the bite between your lips as you chew on your fellow freepers. <<

Caww, have you looked in the mirror lately? You're projecting.

>> they also know this is political theater....and we all enjoy the “show” when it’s played as that... <<

Really? I talked with numerous pro-Trump freepers on here when he was toying with a Presidential run and they swore he was serious as a heart attack about his patriotic conservative plans and tea-party values. Any attempt to point out Trump's record didn't match his rhetoric and/or pointing out he would be a terrible candidate for the GOP was meet with the grating of teeth and angry "and just who are YOU supporting for President?!" inquiries, as well as them adamantly insisting facts about Trump's long liberal record of supporting universal health care, gun control, wanting Bush impeached for Iraq, applauding Pelosi, etc., were "lies" and "anti-Trump smears"

Doesn't seem to me they realized it was all an sideshow. I find Michael Savage entertaining but I wouldn't insist that he's not only a good choice for President, but the ONLY good person the GOP can run. In fact, I would never recommend that he run for President. I realize Savage is a sideshow act that makes for good radio, and not a serious policy wonk. But I have yet to see any of Trump's fans admit that this egotistical real estate tycoon has no business setting government policy. Usually it's met with "you just ENVY The Donald's brilliance" and "you must be for Obama cuz you don't want The Donald to expose THE TRUTH to America"

>> we play into as well. But you are wrong to underestimate Freepers...absolutely wrong. <<

You are wrong if you think most freepers agree with you caww... absolutely wrong.

Not surprising this would happen, coming from our country’s number one professional bulls****er.

I have no problem posting again what I stated...but your point is? ...and Next time you fix my posts to yours do me the courtesy of asking first.

Hey I’d rather have him for Newt than running as he said he would....I have to say “endorsements” are certainly telling which side of right and wrong folks are on.

Trumps..(and Trumpett’s like Bondi) are all lining up for their pay offs and kickbacks in business...(and government positions).

There’s so much bartering going on and will be increasing as this year moves along....I bet behind the scenes it looks like a flipping hurricane of activity we’ll never see.

"This looks even worse for Romney than it would have for Newt if he was the one blessed by Trump. Romney wouldnt even join a debate moderated by Trump, yet Trump picks him. ."

Faux said 27% said Trumps endorsement would make them less likely to vote for that person. It amazes me the Greta gives the blowhard so much airtime.

Back in the day when Zipper-Boy Clinton was IMPEACHED, “The Donald” said: “I think Clinton is tremendous.”

The Donald may even be a registered Democrat.

BTW, what IS the difference between a RINO and a Democrat? Enquiring minds want to know.

See I can’t stand Trump. Never could and knew he was a fraud.

I'm with you naps. The guy is a kook regardless who he endorses.

So does this mean Trump won't run 3rd party?

Nope. Not at all.

It is the first step in Trump's acceptance of a third party nomination. He will get some air time by teasing the media about his futire, say his television program is taking a hiatus, and then announce his third party run with "You're Fired" directed at Oromnay.

The birthers are given the runaround rather easily. First by that nutjob Orly Taitz and then by Trump.

I think the winner in all this is Obama’s team, they must love how we’re being whipsawed.

What is your point?

Should we just roll over and accept a lying, decietful liberal, AKA Mitt Romney, as our "inevitable" nominee?

The same POTUS candidate who:

1. Supports the Individual Mandate?
2. Implements and supports his RomneyCare with its $50 abortions?
3. Refuses to re-instate DADT?
4. Believes in the Global Warming scam?
5. As Governor, nominated extreme left-wing judges?
6. As Governor, pushed Gay-Marriage?

So what would you have us do?

Sit meekly by and just let the lying propaganda from Mitt's money machine go unanswered?

It’s gotten so ridiculous and so childish. Anyone who wanted to run for President on the Republican ticket was free to jump into the race. The people voted. Some candidates won states, some didn’t. Those who did badly dropped out. Going forward to the rest of the states, it is the voters who will determine the outcome. Unfortunately, we freepers don’t have control over the entire Republican electorate.
