The headline should be:

“Romney Loses Iowa and Loses Lead in South Carolina!”

This is no suprise to us Texans.... We never thought he would get this far. I never would have voted for him. Still not sure who I will vote for but it will not be Obama or Paul.

I love Governor Perry. He is and has always been one of our strongest allies in the 2nd & 10th Amendments. He’s tough and calls it like it is (”You got a name?).

I hope he’ll stay involved. I think he’s really impacted the discussion with smaller goverment, less interference, and enery independence. Great guy.

He has a 60% approval rating as TX Governor in last poll I saw.

Bret Baier and FNC pimping the ABC old news interview now.

Couldn't agree more; takes a man to do what he is doing. Wouldn't mind seeing him turn up in the next administration, if Zero is defeated.

I don’t think that is true. He is he awesome governor of Texas. He loves Texas. I think that is where he will stay.
Maybe a senate run fo KBH’s seat. Delicious irony there.

Are they really pushing the ABC stuff?

I've had it on CNN for around an hour in the kitchen, and they haven't said a word that I have heard about the ABC piece. They've been really pushing that Santorum won Iowa, that it's a big deal that Romney did not win Iowa, and that Perry is dropping.

Formal endorsement of Newt and a wonderful explanation of the power of forgiveness. Perry just helped Newt with Christian voters big-time! Very gracious and heart-felt endorsement.

Thanks, Rick! You done good.

“Objective of our mission is to defeat Obama. We therefore must elect a true conservative with bold leadership to give our country back to the people. There is no viable path for me. I am therefore suspending my campaign and endorsing Newt Gingrich. He is not perfect, but who among us is? The fact is..there is forgiveness for those who seek God. I am making a strategic retreat. I head home with the love of my life by my side. A woman who makes every day good and she has been an incredible patriot throughout this process.”

Perry: I believe Newt is a conservative visionary who can m our country. Newt is not perfect but who among us is. The fact is there is forgiveness for those who seek God and I believe in redemption...i have no question that Newt has the heart of a conservative reformer, the ability to rally and captivate the conservative movement, the courage to tell those Washington special interests to take a hike if that’s what’s in the best interest of our country

Can the BS.

Perry fully earned the opposition he gets from conservatives. From the very beginning many his supporters spewed posts like the one you just made "support my candidate or you want Romney/Obama to win." A fair number were profane enough to be warned on their language or accusation against other freepers of racism and were eventually banned.

Perry is out. He isn't a has been, he's a never was.

God willing!

I also hope this is enough to beat Big Government Santorum.

Rick Perry is a great American, imo. I would’ve been happy to have either him OR Newt as POTUS.

WE are watching a statesman.

He is doing the right thing, the noble thing, the best thing for AMerica at this very moment.

He will have a future in American politics, and his star has risen more due to what he is doing at this very moment.

He is a great American.

And better yet,he is a good American.

Even the clowns at Morning Joe were showing disapproval of this ABC stunt. Maybe they’re jealous they didn’t think of it first but it didn’t seem that way.

I voted for him three times... in Texas. However, I knew he wouldn’t go over well in the rest of the country. It is a Texas THANG. You gotta be one to understand us Texans. I do think he has a good heart but never thought he was electable as President. I am a HUGE G.W. Bush fan and always will be... but his Texas ways didn’t go well in Washington. It is a cruel place.

as a believer, I too understand forgiveness, but Newts past was giving me pause, but Perry’s words knocked me upside the head and humbled me. He is just a classy man.

I feel very, very sad for Perry supporters today.

He was my second choice, should Newt have petered out. Now I don’t have a 2nd choice. He is a class act.

Everybody else did exactly the same thing for their candidates. YOU cut the crap. Selective blindless is unbecoming. The man is a Patriot. At least have some respect for that.

Like Rush says why are they resignation speeches among the best? Classy and touching especially talking about Anita. Watching her watch him, I see real love and support. Seems that many political wives look vacant and disinterested. Will miss him but he did a good think if Romney loses SC.

I felt that way from the beginning. I cannot believe that so many FReepers were attacking this conservative Governor with the vitriol that they were. There is no perfect candidate. By the standards set by some, Reagan would have been skewered.

He was our best candidate, definitely most conservative. I hope he stays active pushing for the things he believes in. He was the one person on stage for debates that I NEVER thought of as a Washington insider.
