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

What normal person would want to be POTUS?
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.
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.
We the People.
I bow before noone, except God.
No harm. Are you kidding. I will name just two.
1. His weakness in dealing with Iran had allowed the cancer of Islamism to be able to rear its ugly head. A disaster of mega proportions not only for us, but for the world.
2. The economy was in a shambles. We had both a low growth and inflation. 70% marginal rates and gas lines.
We're gonna have to keep pounding that into people's heads until November. Staying home is losing.
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!
“maybe keep half a million or so for future Tiffanys buys”
Now that’s funny right there!!
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
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
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
20%+ inflation and gas lines that have lead to todays eco-car flops
Wow, that's quite an endorsement! There are some nutty libs out there who actually like all that stuff.
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...
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.
Carter WAS a bad President.
Our worst ... until Obama.
What made Obama truly awful and dangerous was the massive Democrat majorities that passed the worst legislation since ... LBJ. FDR, LBJ, BHO, have a common thread - they grew government via massive bills, eanabled by large Democrat majorities in Congress.
>he voted for Nancy Pelosi to be Speaker of the House, more than once.<
Prove it. Post the evidence - post the actual vote instead of making unfounded accusations.
You do realize that Congressman Goode was one of a handful of Congressional democrats to vote for the impeachment of Bill Clinton, do you not?
I don’t see how we make electoral gains in the House or the Senate if Obama wins the election.
In how many elections have Republicans simultaneously made gains in Congress while losing the Presidential election?
This has been the most disappointing Republican primary season in history. I am thoroughly depressed over the whole thing and praying for a miracle to occur at the convention this summer.
