Gingrich Calls Romney to Bury Hatchet
NewsMax ^ | Wednesday, 25 Apr 2012 05:41 PM | By Marti Lotman

Posted on 04/26/2012 7:31:29 AM PDT by dps.inspect

Newt Gingrich had a friendly conversation Wednesday with presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney after news broke that he was shutting down his floundering campaign,...“It’s clear Romney is the nominee and the focus should be on defeating Obama..."

OK... here is the proposition: Newt appears to understand that, though Romney is a "flawed" candidate, he can do more to help correct America's course with a Romney Presidency than he can under another four years of Obama. My premiss is that Newt's mentality IS Rational Conservatism, and we all will be better off fighting a Romney to correct the ship of state than we would be fighting Obama.

The Question is; can you adapt? That doe's not mean caving on your principles, but perhaps prioritizing your principles. So, just what is the governing principle? Freedom and Freedom of Conscience, the highest of all our God given inalienable rights. Obama is not just a liberal, he's a Marxist who believes you should not have the choices you have, that you cannot be trusted with your inalienable rights. Is not his battle with the Catholic Church regarding contraception evidence of what his ultimate goal is? He condemns our freedom of conscience if it does not line up with his statist views. Statists do not have a problem doing away with those that inhibit their ambition, and a population with a free moral conscience is the greatest threat to the state.

While Romney is a liberal, I believe he can be dissuaded of his liberal bent to some degree or another. Obama will not be dissuaded of his Marxist march... It couldn't be more black and white folks, the choice between Romney and Obama... I think Newt understands full well and is rational about his choices.

Romney the chameleon is not a conservative and an unimpressive candidate, but Hussein the dog eater is far worse. A vote for Willard is the only ballot one can cast that has any chance of being instrumental in removing Obama, therefore that is what I will do. Elections are as much about defeating the opposition as furthering your own cause, and Obama is the worst President in modern history (yes, even worse than Carter) and must be defeated to prevent our complete slide into a failed European socialist state.

It all depends on who he picks for VP. I did not vote for McLame last time- I voted for Palin.

I would love to see Romney pick GINGRICH

so we can hear Gingrich bad-mouth Obama until november

What the ABO crowd does not understand is that with a choice of Mitt or Obama as prez; we conservatives really don’t care which of those losers is the winner.

I repeat. We do not care if Mitt or Obama wins. Because if this is the case... Conservatives lose. The best we can hope for is real conservatives to be elected in the House and Senate.

Trying not to "spam" posts here ...

However, as I've written earlier ...

"Who the HELL ... "is" ... Mitt Romney" ?

"What" (besides enjoying firing people and wearing ceremonial "magic" Mormon underwear") ...

does Mitt O-Romney REALLY believe ?



The frightening scenario of a Romney Presidency is that he can endorse-pursue ANY POLICY from ANY DIRECTION ...

and still say that "I've held this position before" ...



How can America's conservatives be so ABSOLUTELY STUPID ???

Rush Limbaugh likes to joke that "Blacks are STRUCK on the Democratic Plantation" ...

How do we (conservatives) feel today ?

as the GOP E-RINO club laughs at us ... we their SLAVES ... on the Juan McCain -- Linday Graham Plantation ?




I feel like I want to puke with the terrible news over the past few days ...

Disagree. Personally, I don't follow any pol - I follow my own convictions. I don't need a pol to show me the light or sugarcoat socialism.

A) A Marxist, abortionist, homo-agenda-coddling, big government, open borders, socialized medicine, who doesn't give a s*** about our country or the Constitution as president + a Congress mostly resisting his agenda, and a chance for a true Conservative/Constitution-abiding president in 2016...

If we get the Senate and hold the House, Romney will never be King like King Obama has been. Been listening to some of Romney latest speeches and some of them contain what Newt has been saying. We can only hope that Romney will follow through with at least some of what he says and keep the liberal crap down. Maybe the Senate and House will hold his nose to the grindstone. I have to go Romney now unless something at the convention changes things.

We already know how Obama 2nd term will be. Anyone recall what he whispered to Medvedev on a hot mike?

Obama is lazy, narcissistic, socialist, big government promoter, clueless on how to grow economy, apologizer in chief to foreiners, wastes time playing golf (100 rounds so far) when country is facing serious problems, Solyndra, Arizona immigration, Fast & Furious, against Keystone & domestic energy production, anti-Israel, pro-Muslim, America divider, in the pocket of unions and trial lawyers, and wastes tax payer money by endless vacations on Air Force One and weekly parties at the White House.

Romney was at bottom on my list, but at this point I have little choice except ABO.

Last I read Newt is $4.3 million in the hole but has $5 million in superpac money (which he can’t legally use to pay off campaign debts).

He should ask Mitt to pay off his campaign debts with the quid pro quo being that he will use the superpac money to fund media time for Mitt (maybe keep half a million or so for future Tiffany’s buys).

So what are your choices? Newt went Lib with Pelosi and Rev Al Sharpton by making those idiotic global warming commercials, and he even supported crap and trade, which is quite Liberal... where do you draw the line? He was widely forgiven of those blunders by showing he could give voice to conservative views, but what does he really believe? Did he believe the liberal bilge on global warming or was he merely hedging his bets in a new political reality where liberals seemed to be in complete control of the universe? Either way, what kind of a person does that make Newt? If you could support him knowing the implication of that question, can you support him in his decision to get behind Romney? Maybe you can’t, and that’s OK...

Mr. Peanut was a cupcake compared to LBJ and Obama. He was ineffective, weak and did no real harm to the US in the 4 years he served. Hell, Carter has done more damage to the US SINCE he left office than he ever did while in office.

That’s the thing. Carter was largely ineffective. Johnson, however, WAS effective—effective in the wrong direction. LBJ gave us both the Vietnam War and the Great Society, a true double-whammy. Obama has been a disaster on all fronts; he’s just lacking a Vietnam to add to his resume. I don’t want to give him a chance to inflict any more damage over another four years.

Agree kevcol.

Why is it that so many supposed conservatives look to one pol to “save us” from the reign of terror of another one?

To think that we must wait anxiously to see if Mittens will act like the liberal that he is once he gets into office...is to live in fear and give away our power to the RNC and him.

It’s up to us to save ourselves. 2016 or bust.

No harm. Are you kidding. I will name just two.

2. The economy was in a shambles. We had both a low growth and inflation. 70% marginal rates and gas lines.

My candidate Gov. Rick Perry, a true American conservative, is in the ashes and second choice Newt Gingerich fought until it was no longer rationally possible.

So, rationally, even conservatives who veer to the right of Attilla the Hun, much decide if the country can survive 4 more years of the community organizer. I think not.

Romney is a flawed candidate, but it isn’t likely the Dems will unearth any sordid tales related to his personal family values. His work ethics may not jibe with those of Quakers, but at least he is familiar with how business operates.

Unlike the present occupant in D.C., Romney does not appear to hate America, Americans and individual freedom.

I hate that Romney okayed Romneycare, flip-flopped on social issues that we all care about. And we must never stop letting him know that do not condone any of it.

If being united to save the country from Obama is a must, then we must also concentrate fully on obtaining the White House, retaining the House and taking the Senate.

In the end, OBAMA MUST BE RETURNED TO CHICAGO IN NOVEMBER!

Marxist[D] and Marxist[R] are equally evil. While Marxist[R] might hold his nose and throw a meaningless bone to Conservatives/Constitutionalists once in a blue moon, Marxist[R] does more long term damage by lurching the party to the left and marginalizing those who seek to protect and uphold the Constitution. Marxist[R] in the White House essentially ends the participation and influence of Conservatives in the party. Honestly though, I don't think our Constitution will rely on a compromi$ed and auctioned joke of a ballot box to defend her much longer, and her authors understood and foresaw this potential eventuality with the 2nd.

Do you mean other than...

giving up a valuable ally (Iran) to the islamofacists, giving up on hostages for over 400 days, approving an understaffed embarrasing half-assed rescue effort, encouraging Islamic fundamentalists to commit acts of terror, showing the Middle East that America is weak and can be manipulated by controlling oil... all ultimately leading to 911

or

dismantling the military during the Cold War, thus encouraging the Soviets to expand into Afghanistan, Africa, Nicaragua, Honduras, Granada, etc...and forcing Ronald Reagan to spend heavily on the military

or

setting rules and policy on domestic nuclear power that has resulted in American power plants storing dangerous spent fuel in dispersed metal buildings in the hopes of burying it under a Nevada mountain, rather than sending it to reprocessing facilities

or

20%+ inflation and gas lines that have lead to todays eco-car flops

Most of the so-called "social issues" are actually constitutional issues. Using the term "social issues" is a sneaky way to downplay their significance and make their proponents appear motivated by prejudice.

Romney will never "listen". Willard hates Conservatives - probably the only thing in his otherwise empty soul that is genuine. His preordained nomination is just another galling manifestation of the diseased state of the [R] party.

This is true. Which is why carping about Romney now is really pointless and only aids and abets Obama and the Dems. If you liked Michelle Bachmann, you will want her to get re-elected and not tossed out by an Obama wave re-election.

But it's also true that the best way to advance CONSERVATIVES is to find good conservatives running for office, and help them, and there are many running. So support them to the hilt. Like Mourdock taking on Lugar in Indiana, or Ted Cruz in Texas, or the many GOP Congressmen and women who won in 2010 and will be facing a real test in re-election. Many Tea Party candidates are vulnerable or need help. Allen West for example.

Helping those candidates will make a good difference. Let others campaign for Romney and help those down ballot candidates, if they are ones who you cant really get behind.

I strongly disagree. Carter lost Iran, the USSR annexed Afghanistan with 50,000 paratroopers, there were 20,000 Cubans fighting to seize Angola on the way to getting the strategic metals needed to make jet and rocket motors in Zaire, plus he surrendered NATO to the intimidation of SS-20’s as well as yanked the neutron bomb deployment after European leaders took the political hit of agreeing to deploy it, plus allowing the Nicaraguan Sandinistas to prepare to set up a Soviet submarine, bomber and naval air patrol (anti-submarine) base in Nicaragua...plus destabilize the rest of Central and Latin America...I could go on...

And despite that Virgil Goode still has an ACU lifetime rank of 92%. Not bad for a former dem and by far the most Conservative in the race.

Mitt doesn't have an ACU rating. If he did, it would rank right up there with Ted Kennedy's. I don't know if there can be a negative rank but surely the two massholes Ted and Mitt qualify.

We do not care if Mitt or Obama wins

My guess is that your "We" encompasses a much smaller percentage of "conservatives" than you either pretend or truly believe.

As bizarre as I'm sure it seems to you, Romney has somehow in fact ALWAYS been getting a percent of conservatives supporting him, even when there were real good conservatives available to choose from. As candidates fell by the wayside, more conservatives came to support Romney. Now if Gingrich is getting out, I would not be surprised if most conservatives will be supporting Romney.

You are of course free to support or not support whoever you want. I'm not telling you to support Romney. I'm saying that you do not accurately speak for most conservatives in your claim.

It would be an interesting poll, to find out what percentage of Freepers would say they "do not care" whether Romney or Obama wins.

BTW, for some who would disagree with you, it's because they would actually prefer Obama over Romney.

This doesn't make any sense. How will Romney (or even Obama) winning affect the Congressional elections? They are all done at the same time...

The Congress is very likely to turn completely over to the Republicans. That will make Obama a lame-duck prez. Don't fret too much if he wins... in fact, the Republican Congress is less likely to vote in favor of bad legislation Obama tries to bring.

However, that same congress WOULD vote in favor of bad policy from Romney (for the sake of party unity of course). The country may actually be safer with a lame-duck Obama! Then we can try again in 2016 and Mitt will be too broke to run again. LOL

We cannot call ourselves patriots and sit out this election. Obama, if re-elected will change this nation forever. One more SCOTUS appointment like Kagan or Sotomayor and it’s all over. We don’t take primary battles to the general election. Elections are about choices not whether all of mine or anybody else’s principles will be compromised. Gingrich was an unmitigated disaster and a spoiler-in-chief who enabled Romney to squeak by wins in MI (3%) and in OH (under 1%). His baggage (and not just his personal stuff) was enormously heavy to bring down a fleet of 747s. Cap and trade, early support for the individual mandate; NY23; $1.6m Fannie Mae lobbying fee and the list goes on. His campaign, if it could be called that was quixotic and in a perpetual state of terminal chaos punctuated between penguin bites and bounced checks in Utah, and a never ending on-again, off-again campaign. His negatives were sky-high and his gender gap was oceans apart. Like it or not, this was the reality.

This is an epochal election. We must do all in our power to vote out Obama. You can bet that the SEIU, Black Panthers, NARAL, Planned Parenthood, NEA; GLBT; Emily’s List; La Raza; NAACP; and all of Hollywood and dead people and illegals will be enlisted to vote for Obama.
