Just contributed to Newt's Campaign
None | Today | self

Posted on 11/10/2011 4:13:43 PM PST by Hammerhead

Full-on once every year or two vanity....

I'm officially on the Newt bandwagon.

Cain will fade (never considered him Presidential. 'Secretary of Something' definetly.

It will come down to Romney and Newt.

However, I last contributed to Fred Thompson and he dropped out 5 days later.

Here's hoping Newt doesn't stab us in the back.

Fingers crossed.

Personally, I don’t really see any sign of Cain fading.

> Here’s hoping Newt doesn’t stab us in the back.

I heard him on the radio last night.

While he expressed vigorous opposition to “Cap and Trade”, he still seems to believe that AGW is real.

Good policy wonk, but he’s wrong about AGW.

Also, IMHO, no white boy stands a chance to win against 0bamao0, no matter how bad the economy gets.

"Cain will fade"

Now, that's funny. I don't care who you are!

A newly released Public Policy Polling (PPP) Ohio survey this evening shows Cain with 34 percent support, Gingrich with 20 percent support, and Mitt Romney with 19 percent support.

No other candidate has more than 5 percent support.

Watch out, you're gonna get flamed by the Cainiacs.

FWIW, I agree. My chrystal ball says Newt will ultimately be the anti-Romney candidate and our last hope to keep mittens off the ticket.

Hey, I knew I was forgetting something today! Thanks for reminding me; I just donated another Uly$$e$ $. Grant to Herman Cain.

I must preface by saying I have nothing against Newt (based on the little I know of him), but I just wanted to address something else that you said.

Cain’s not going away. They’re trying to “Sarah Palin” him, but this time they don’t have 3-4 years to do it. They only have a matter of weeks (days could even be appropriate), and people aren’t buying in to it. The harder they try to parade accusations against him, the more people will support him. Satan’s principles (the Saul Alinsky tactic, if you will), is that it has to be subtle and long term. If Satan (in this case his followers), come(s) at you in all this/their grotesque fullness, people say “AAHH NO!” Thus, it’s not working.

You could have just said you support Newt and left it that.

Now it’s just a troll vanity.

Yea, I gave $200 to Fred. How did that work out? He was running interference for his buddy McNumbnut’s.

I have giv’n Cain $100 and this time it is money well spent. Ebony and Ivory! Cain & Newt!

“If you admit that your judgment is not so good, I’m inclined to agree with you. BTW, will you be around to admit your error should Cain not fade?”

You’ve been here 6 days, yet talking that way to a ten year freeper?

Will you pm me, when Cain is not Potus or VP?

Agreed. It’s like a poisonous mushroom. There are little mushrooms that people eat that are mildly poisonous and they taste horrific and people spit them out, thus, they don’t get poisoned. Then there’s the “Destroying Angel” that tastes good and you keep eating it until it’s too late and you get sick or die.

The liberal tactic relies on having a long time to be subtle and poison slowly or affect change by degrees. They have no time, and are throwing everything at Cain, and it’s not working. People are effectively “spitting” out the nonsense. Cain’s not fading, at least for the moment.

I agree and have given to Cain’s campaign as well. Cain is strong and very brave and I pray that he will prevail.

Yes, the good Man and proven successful Man will get marginalized and you will be left with another RINO Career Politician (Newt) directing your future.

Good Luck with that!

The only weakness I see with Cain is that, as CEO he didn’t have to work with rivals to get policy done. His word was law.

But I think he can overcome that. He’s shown that he’s able to run a brilliant campaign, despite having to run his campaign on mere pennies compared to everybody else.

Hey, we aren’t flaming, we’re “needling” just to get your goat. It’s all in good fun. Don’t take it personally.

The Romneybots and Paulites on the other hand...

I’m happy to take bets (friendly of course) on who will not be the eventual nominee coming out of the convention.

And I agree that it will eventually come down to Newt and Romney.

FYI, I’m still undecided at this point. Not terribly enthused with any of my choices.

Yes, first I realize this is total worthless vanity thread.

2nd regarding Cain fading, I don’t think Cain will hold the top spot all the way until the end. I think he’ll end up as No. 3 behind Newt and Romney.

And I’m not the only one out there saying that.

Every answere can’t be “999”. Unfortunately Cain does not have the depth that Newt has.

Notice I say ‘unfortunately’.

Actually, people who worked with Cain when he was a business executive say that his style was collegial. He would hold meetings where subordinates were expected to give concise, researched reports on things, on which he would base his decisions. He was not authoritarian.

I'm still undecided, except I don't like mittens. This campaign has taken so many twists and turns it's hard to know what's next. I definitely want to see if Cain survives these attacks, although I have a feeling he won't If they are coming from Axelrod, as I saw in a post earlier today, Cain is in grave danger.

Cheers backatcha.

I have been watching Newt very closely and he has moved to the top of my list. His interview with Bret Baier, Center Seat, was excellent, his debate performances have been great, I like his policy positions, and based on his past achievements, he is capable of getting BIG things done. Given what we have to choose from, I don't give a dang about his ‘baggage’.

Thnaks for giving us an honest read on the wisdom of your political judgment. I think I'll just send Herman another c-note. Newt has lots of money. He can wait.

What a steaming pile. As if Cain doesn't answer everything with that gawdawful 999 plan. Geeeez. Newt is DEAD ON to call the media out instead of playing their game. That is EXACTLY what a smart conservative does. Cain should try it sometime.

As for Newt having some sort of ceiling, that is nothing more than a number you pulled out of your backside. After a horrible start to his campaign he has hit his stride and is coming on. As Perry fades, Newt is picking up his support. When Cain fades, the same will happen. When conservatives have a choice between Newt and Romney it will be Newt all the way.

I'm officially on the Newt bandwagon.

1. Newt is toxic

2. Newt has baggage that the MSM will destroy him with.

3. Newt has one thing in common with McCain, he feels he is next on the list and "entitled" to the presidency.

4. Newt talked a good game once upon a time but shot his wad a long time ago....

5. Newt is nothing but a self absorbed RINO who has lost touch with the conservative party......

6. Notice Newt's recent comments, he has basically stopped referencing Cain or Perry and focused on Romney. The impression he is giving me is that only HE and Romney are the true contenders in this race........I find his political arrogance very disconcerting.

All these guys will do good on the economy..some better than others. BUT...
Newt is the only current top-tier candidate who talks of faith issues(Santorum aside). We need to roll back alot of laws and policies that have negated religious freedom of conscious in the work place and in the medical profession and have advanced a sterile public square where religion and talk of religion is not tolerated. Romney and Cain dont give lip service to this. I will be giving Newt a token donation soon.

For sooo many years Republicans have been serving as ineffectual door stops on the swinging door of a secularism that wants to tie and bind down religious rights,freedom and expression.That door is very close to approaching full wide open.

The Cainiacs are very prevalent in here, I could easily vote for Cain if he wins the nomination, but in the primary’s I will be for Newt I think.

He knows more about Government than all of the others combined, and will tear Obama a new ass in the debates.
