Todd Palin Endorses Newt Gingrich
ABC News ^ | Jan 9, 2012 | ABC News Santina Leuci and Z. Byron Wolf reporting

Posted on 01/09/2012 10:13:50 AM PST by US Navy Vet

Sarah Palin’s husband is endorsing Newt Gingrich for president, Todd Palin told ABC News today.

But Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and John McCain’s 2008 Republican running mate, has yet to decide “who is best able to go up against Barack Obama,” Todd Palin said.

Palin said he has not spoken to Gingrich or anyone from the former House speaker’s campaign. But he said he respects Gingrich for what he went through in the 1990s and compared that scrutiny in public life to what Sarah Palin went through during her run for the vice presidency.

Just from the excerpts of the article, it does not exactly sound like he’s endorsing Newt. Just that he singled him out for some extra laudatory praise. That’s not an endorsement.

“so”

Exactly. IF Sarah endorses Newt, will that help him or harm him?

I’m personally waiting on the coveted Bristol Palin endorsement. That should tip the scale. :)

Todd? Who cares? ; )

I want SARAHCUUUUUUUDA’s enthusiastic endorsement and vote. Btw, Sarah actually VOTED for Huck in her primary before accepting McLame’s number two in 2008..

But McLame (33%) hijacked our nomination from Huck (30%) & Thompson (15%) - the prohibitive favs among conservatives in SC, the decider state.

And now Willard (30%) is scheming to do the same versus Newt (A STRONG 23% WHO NEEDS HELP..C’MON SARAH!), Santorum (19%), and Perry (5%) - the evangelical three favs by far and away combined over Willard.

Sarah should endorse the strongest Evangelical/Christian/Conservative candidate just as she VOTED for our strongest one in 2008...

IN 2012: That’s Newt!!!

Good for him. I like people who can pick someone and say why they picked. Whether I agree with them or not.

We got a complete neo-phyte as a President now with no credible experience. So looking at the pool of candidates, Newt leads the pack in terms of experience in the federal sector...now...what I am not sure of...is that a good or a bad thing :)

Todd is his own man, and for him to come out for Newt shows that he has the courage to support conservative candidates.

Newt is the only one who can take on Obama.

Rush just said that Newt called Rush to tell him that Todd was going to endorse him. then Rush went to Drudge and there it was.

That is better than endorsing romney... but I will almost bet that if Sarah endorses someone... it will not be newt. Maybe it will be but I doubt it.

Rush is talking about this right this second. Todd told newt it was because he was a populist reformer.

Exactly. In 2010, Sarah Palin endorsed someone I opposed in the congressional race. I shrugged and went on to elect my guy instead.

Smart way to do this, it is the Palin endorsement, and then when the time is right, Sarah herself can do the big, public, ‘build the momentum’ formal endorsement.

Both Palins endorsing anyone may help perhaps in South Carolina which is now crucial for our non-Romney to surge, but will matter not at all elsewhere, as the primary moves out ot the South.

As to Sarah’s endorsement and Todd’s, I can not imagine who cares either, however something that doesn’t matter doesn’t hurt.

Todd Palin is a strong conservative and is a well-spoken man unlike the rambling typing of Da Coyote.

I suspect Tebow will adhere to the advice Michael Jordan gave, “Republicans buy shoes, too” and stay out of it.

What I find amusing is this Todd Palin endorsement is a big “who cares - so what” issue.

And that being the case - this thread will hit 100+ replies. Easy.

lolol

Kinda like when Fat McCain opens her mouth and says something stupid... also 100 replies. Everytime.

Why is that? Is it like gawking at a car wreck on the highway?

lolol

Todd P is just only slightly dumber than Nancy Bimbo-osi. As if anyone gives a smelly Obama about what comes out of his pie hole.

And WTH did Todd P do or say to gain such admiration from you?

As I said - you are delusional. But I'm always willing to educate the clueless. Upthread you said Newt was an evangelical Christian.
 
Guess what? He's a Catholic. On his third marriage.
 
Really. Look it up.

The excitement on Twitter this is generating is huge. All eyes on Newt due to Todd. All eyes on Mitt due to Bain Capital.
