Call to Arms - All Conservatives Let's Back Newt Gingrich - Calling Palin, Cain & Rush
January 6, 2012 | Ralph Mitchell

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.

No offense, but I’m backing Sanortum. He’s as close to a conservative that we are apt to have.

I really wanted Perry to do better, but it wasn’t to be. :(

Santorum is to the left of Willard? What are you drinking?

I am totally united — for Rick Perry. Wouldn’t mind too much if Newt is his VP or cabinet member.

I think we're going to see a Gingrich-Santorum ticket
or a Santorum-Gingrich ticket.

Gather round, folks.

I’m hearing buzz (thank goodness) about Perry being back in. Hope it happens.

But if he doesn’t do well in the debate tomorrow, I’ll move on.

Newt would make a better Veep. He’d rule that Senate with spurs and a whip, and enjoy it a whole lot more than the Presidency. lol

Newt fans, Tweet by Andrew Breitbart: “Rhymes w Shmoosweek: Gingrich SuperPAC to launch NUKE R BOMB! Shock film lays blame for US de-industrialization at feet of fmr Bain CEO!”

Get the popcorn ready....I hope.

“In fact, no one much will vote for him other than old, fat white guys like him.”

Old fat white guys can lose a lot of weight by November 2012.
Remember the Subway fat guy commercial? Newt and his handlers can have him looking good in a few months.

Just after Breitbart and company released all the Throw Them All Out stuff about insider trading going on in congress, someone tweeted Andrew and asked if there was anything else. Andrew tweeted back that ‘lots’ of stuff would be coming out.

Is it good for the cause stuff?? who knows, but I love seeing someone other than the GOP establishment ‘calling the shots’ so to speak.

You’ve got it right. There’s almost no chance now Republicans will rally behind Newt, the only candidate who can beat Obama. The familiar circular firing squad is armed and ready. Republicans got the name “Stupid Party” the old-fashioned way: they earned it.

I have picked one, but it won’t make a bit of difference if who we endorse doesn’t make a good showing or win in NH and SC.

Let’s wait until after South Carolina.

Why should we allow SC to make a decision for us? I'm not advocating a choice here other than why we would allow them to make a choice for us. I like Rick, Rick and Newt, but why not get behind one and finish off Romney once and for all.

He and Bannon said they’d have something, albeit a little later than the 30 days out from the Iowa caucuses. Can’t wait to see what they dish out!

Well, I’m not too old (by my reckoning), I’m not too fat (too fat for what?), and I am a typical white person (applying zero’s racist comment). And I’m voting for Newt. So there.
Newt can beat barry; Rick cannot, in my humble opinion.

I think the 30 days out from the Iowa caucus stuff was the insider trading stuff. It came out just a little bit earlier than 30 days before caucus. I could be wrong though, but since then he tweeted that more would be coming out.

I know this. Give Newt the nomination and he will immediately grasp Obama by his throat and never stop squeezing.

And how will that be reported? I hate the media and their blatant activism but look what they did to Lazio (in Hilliary's face), Palin (Katy's ambush), etc. They'll paint him as an evil monster.

Not saying Newt isn't the guy but we need to be realistic about how he or anyone will fare.

I agree and it doesn’t look like it matters according to polls , even Drudge has lines saying Mitt is pulling away. It is very disappointing but I will vote because Obama is simply a horror as are the Reid Dems and San Fran Nan House reps.

I like Newt cause he’s tough and doesn’t take any crap from the media. He can stand up to whatever BO throws at him. Santorum just doesn’t do it for me. He’s too nice and that’s not gonna cut it this time. (It actually never does)

If he takes SC he will win the whole ball game that will be it game over!

Why is that? Guess I'm not savvy enough but that doesn't seem to cinch the necessary delegates to put him over the top.

And everything I like about Newt, Romney is a no show.

Santorum is dead meat. He hasn't a clue as to what he will be faced with. Gingrich has been through the mill and knows the players and their numbers.
