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.
