Skip to comments.Call to Arms - All Conservatives Let's Back Newt Gingrich - Calling Palin, Cain & Rush
Posted on 01/06/2012 5:38:48 PM PST by mitchell001
This is an appeal to all long-time conservatives. Let's start lining up behind Newt Gingrich, as Thomas Sowell, Art Laffer, JC Watts, Jim Robinson (Free Republic honcho) and others have. The hazzard of holding back an endorsement is that the media, pudits and PAC TV commercials will continue to shape negative opinion against Newt and we may lose our best conservative warrior. The result of the media, pundit and PAC TV onslaught may cause the nominee to be Romney or Santorum. Romney is a moderate and Santorum does not have the experience to Push the conservative agenda in the general election or if elected in the Washington DC - Congressional War Zone. I want to urge Sarah Palin, Herman Cain and Rush Limbaugh to endorse Gingrich now before they lose their voice to the LOUD voices of the media, pundit and PAC TV. He who hesitates is lost.
Don’t forget that Michael Reagan also backed Newt!
I don’t want to pick one yet. Let’s wait until after South Carolina. There are 3 good candidates right now that are acceptable and that is Rick, Rick and Newt. No reason to settle on one right this minute.
For those on the list interested ping!
Gingrich will not win this. We need to get behind Rick Santorum, who is our only shot at stopping Romney now.
Newt is well spoken and knows the issues. I still feel he is the best one to go up against Obama. A vote for Mitt is a vote for the status quo. We need a bomb thrower such as Newt to shake up Washington. The RINOs nightmare. GO NEWT!
While I admire the way he didn’t take any crap from SeeBS this morning, I’m still leaning....NO! Santorum is who we shodl be lining up to support right now.
I am in!
Woulld it surprise you if Santorum got behing Romney at some point?
Amen brother!!! Romney and the RNC are setting us up. Why would Mitt start running hit advertisment in SC and FL today on Newt when Newt is not polling like Santorum or Paul? They know who the threat is and if they can take him out now Romney is at the convention. Simple as that.
We are be suckered and we are biting on the bait!!!
Newt is the only one that will be able to withstand the barrage of the Obama machine. We need a Rocky right now and Newt is the only one capable of getting up from the canvas. And WIN!
What I won't do is the liberals' heavy lifting by picking one candidate and trashing the others.
I’m already there.
If Romney’s nomination were inevitable (gag), I think that Santorum would bite the bullet and try to influence things behind the scenes.
I’m already backing Newt. Started the day that Cain quit and because of the Lincoln-Douglas style debate between Cain and Gingrich.
Newt is one smart hombre’!
Problem is many conservatives don’t trust newt either. His backing of Dede ScoffaRINO over Doug Hoffman in 2009 and his embrace of Al Gore over global warming has turned me off.
I agree. We have to unite. Either Newt or Perry. Santorum is just too weird... but we’ve got to unite.
I bet if everyone named their top 2 of the top 3 (Newt, Santorum or Perry), Perry’s name would be everyone’s #1 or #2 choice.
For the record, I blame a lot of this mess on Palin who just weeks ago said “the more the merrier - jump in and run”. What a mess.
I’m not lining up behind Romeny (blecch), Santorum (Big Government Conservative), or Gingrich (Big Idea Conservative). I might have to line up behind one of these guys just to get Obama out of office, but I don’t need to line up behind any one of these compromises when the marathon has barely begun.
It’s way too premature.
NO Santorum. We are electing a president, not a pope.
Can’t do it until he’s the last one standing. I don’t trust him.
In fact, no one much will vote for him other than old, fat white guys like him.
Why do we have to jump to the tune of the media, etc.? Boehner can’t take pressure either, and see what that gets us?
And I’m not going to back Newt when I’ve waited all this time to pick my own candidate to support. Santorum is the most conservative candidate, and I’m sticking with him.
Sorry, I’m busy backing Santorum at the moment. But I could vote for Newt depending on how things go over the next two to three weeks.
Romney is the establishment pick, and the establishment will insure he is the nominee.
It does not matter who wins between Obama and Romney, the destruction of our country from within will continue unabated.
I see three scenarios ahead:
1) The country experiences a “crash” of the economy that will open the eyes of Americans to what the Fed truly is, and the overwhelming majority of Americans will finally vote out the marxists (unlikely)...
2) The country will continue its headlong dive into a marxist shithole (most likely)....
3) Or, a true “civil war” will have to erupt that will leave tens of millions of Americans dead in order to put this country back on track (highly unlikely as most Americans have no will to either “rock the boat” or are dependent upon the government to the point that they fully support the establishment agenda)
The true call to arms should be made to tens of millions of Armed patriots marching on D.C. to set things right, but as I pointed out before, highly unlikely.
Considering the pacified state of our citizens, the only course we seem to have available at this point in time would be to begin the process of building a conservative political party that will eventually replace the GOP. It would also be a very good idea to actually start reliably conservative media outlets to eventually replace our current marxist enabling media.
Just my worthless 2 cents.
“I dont want to pick one yet. Lets wait until after South Carolina. There are 3 good candidates right now that are acceptable and that is Rick, Rick and Newt. No reason to settle on one right this minute.”
Agreed. We all got our favorites. Let’s let them duke it out in SC and see who comes out on top. After SC, I think at least 1 of the 3 should drop out.
I’m there! Count me in.
THE boldest move is the Newt/Santorum ticket. Newt raised about $10 million in the 4th quarter while Rick Santorum has raised about $1 million BUT a couple more million since winning Iowa.
Newt’s got a couple Super Pacs well organized, too.
Put it all together and run as a team AND watch the establishment’s heads explode.
Santorum is so young but such a CONSERVATIVE bulldog, reminding me of a young Newt : )
How ‘bout EIGHT years of Santorum and then EIGHT years of Santubio, folks??
Newt/Rick ‘12 & ‘16
Rick/Marco ‘20 & ‘24
Sorry, my support is behind Santorum.
AGREE.. NOT YET TIME to settle on one candidate. I am leaning toward Santorum or Romney
The nomination of Romney (if it happens) will haunt the GOP for years. He can not beat Obama and that is the only
reason the RINOs want him. They hate Newt because he would shake up things in Washington and get rid of the Republicrats. RINOs hate conservatives. Obama is also going to put Hillary Clinton on his ticket. Biden will be dumped. He’ll win going away with McRomney as the GOP nominee. Unless the average republican voter wants this liberal Romney crammed down our throats the way McCain was, we have got to get behind Newt Gingrich. That also means
Rick Perry and Santorum need to drop out of the race. If they care anything about the country and don’t want to see four more years of the marxist Obama, they will get out now, or at least after NH and support the only man that can beat Obama and his name is Newt Gingrich. Don’t let Karl
Rove and his gang of Gingrich-hating RINOs select who our nominee will be. AMEN.
The problem with that is SC has picked our nominee EVERY time since 1980.
You split the true conservative vote two or three ways in SC, you get a McCain or Romney. And then Obama wins. Period.
Thank you! I just don't get this push. Pressure on all sides to get behind one or the other.
As my daughter loves to say, "Where's the fire?"
Your leaning towards Romney?
If Thomas Sowell backs him—that speaks volumes.
Newt has issues, but just maybe he will be able to buck the system. He is quite intellectual and can debate—and I like what he says. If he only does what he says he will, I could back him.
No, Santorum is just too culture of life for you. Just too Natural Law and founding principles.
Gingrich said he will do as Lincoln did to Douglas. Wherever Hussein makes a campaign stop, Newt will be there the next day to counter him. No President, especially our Dear Leader, esteemed brilliant Harvard grad, will sit out unanswered the sh!tstorm Gingrich will unleash. He will dog Hussein into either debate or shame him to defeat.
If Newt had not engineered and pulled off fumigating the House of rat leadership in 1994, I would not give his promise to combat our tyrannical courts much credence. That is why I believe he will do as promised to Constitutionally stomp the tyrannical blackrobes, as described here.
There is nothing the Compost or Slimes can write of Newt that has not been beaten into the dirt many times before. He will ignore them all.
Finally, Newt is an arrogant SOB, perhaps just the man we need to work with a conservative Congress to restore a Constitutional republic.
Yours sounds like the best idea yet, if Santorum would agree. Everyone can agree that Newt’s the toughest, smartest, shrewdest one in the bunch and Santorum is still young. He would make a great vp and be ready for the presidency in 8 years.
Everything that I dislike about Romney, Newt is also guilty of.
Of course, the problem is, Santorum is to the left of Mitt on most NON SOCIAL issues. Can you say Santuckabee? Or is it Huckatorum?
“Santorum is just too weird”
Hmmmm.... Why would a Sarah Palin supporter even say that about a fellow true conservative?
LOL! I like the way you express yourself. I am ready to watch the beatings begin immediately. Getting my popcorn for the debate on ABC tomorrow night.
“Santorum is to the left of Mitt on most NON SOCIAL issues.”
Hey, put down the crack pipe.
“Im already backing Newt. Started the day that Cain quit and because of the Lincoln-Douglas style debate between Cain and Gingrich.
Newt is one smart hombre!”
It might be too late already. For if Willard can keep all the conservatives in the race he wins South Carolina by default.. The conservatives Santorum, Newt, Paul, Perry are slitting the conservative vote. They all have some good points. One or two needs to drop out so we can beat Willard in South Carolina. If he takes SC he will win the whole ball game that will be it game over!
Exactly. And that’s why Willard the Flaming Ultra-Liberal can’t stop smiling lately.
It’ll be fun.
Newt is the only man that can beat Obama and turn the country around.
I have been a Gingrich supporter and I will not change, regardless of the media rats, the attack ads or the polls.
GO NEWT GO.........
I was a Cain guy until he dropped out! I wish he would support one of the candidates before it is too late!
