FOX News calls it for NEWT!! WOO HOO!!
I switched to CNN less Newt bashing. Pretty pathetic for Fox.
Sarah didn’t endorse Newt.
But, she endorsed Todd’s endorsement of Newt.
You betcha! ;-)
Yes - it was like watching his speech during an earthquake.
I’m glad someone else noticed. It was almost unwatchable, which may have been the design.
Just imagine how poorly Paul would have shown if not for the Democrats who infiltrated the primary to vote for him. And he claimed in his speech he did well in this primary because he got more votes than 4 years ago even though he came in last...but there were far fewer active candidates contesting the state this time around to split up the votes.
I voted for Newt today.
You are often wrong, aren’t you?
I think she is not endorsing now out of a pretty smart strategy. She wants to support the nominee no matter which one it is and I think that she is waiting for tactical reasons.
She will bring in a ton of relevance with her endorsement.
The truth is, Gingrich hasn’t got a shot.

A few months ago, I would have totally agreed with you. I saw Newt as a has-been and an angry old man (sorta like Ron Paul). I took the defection of his support team as proof that I was right.
However, we have all watched Newt undergo a renaissance in the last few months, and especially in the last couple of weeks. If Newt can continue in this vein, he has a real shot. If he can raise the money to get his message out, he has a shot. If he will come off his high horse a little and do sympathetic interviews talking about how he is now a good Catholic and regrets his past mistakes, he has a shot. If he can GET his message out to the American public as a whole and continue to make it both palatable and inspiring, as he has lately - I really think Newt has a real shot! He converted me. I think he can convert others as well.
Go Newt!!!! :o)
I’m voting for Newt all the way. He is inspiring us right now. He is running to the right and throwing us the red meat we’ve been after. But I have no illusions about him. He is a broken field runner who if elected president will not be good on illegal immigration and will try to draw grand (and grandiose) compromises with the Democrats. In his mind he is a brilliant historical figure so of course he is going to do this or at least try to. Newt is not the principled Conservative that Ronald Reagan was even though he talks that way right now to win primaries.
Freepers and other good conservatives will have to reign Newt in if he becomes President. Much depends on what kind of House and Senate we have with how many Democrats. Will Harry Reid be reduced to Minority Leader? I am ready to be disappointed. He will be a backstabber. 1000x better than Obama but still someone we will have to deal with. He talks big boy conservative now but I see a big moderate emerging if elected.
We need a solid Republican House and Senate. Then Newt can make Freeper dreams come true such as nullifying Obama-Care and abolishing the EPA and the Department of Education. Such as reigning in the eco-anarchists in so many Federal agencies who tyrannize the private sector
Another FReeper (sorry, but I forgot who it was) used "She turned me into a Newt" as a tagline.
No, George H.W. Bush is for Romney. We don't know yet the positions of George W. or JEB. And Laura is for JEB, I think.
Actually Mitt did well in the earlier debates, able to showcase a reasonably good sense of humor then. I think he's lost that sense of humor now.
Yes, if she gives up her day job as a FOX contributor. That's a lot of money to say no to.
That’s what I thought, but people here are saying that she’s endorsed other candidates while working as a news correspondent.
Now that I think more about it, I can say for sure that I don’t know.
After all Anne Coulter endorsed Romney. So why can’t Sarah endorse, too? Maybe she doesn’t want to garner resentment, so she can support the nominee to greatest effectiveness, believing the main thing is to get the commie out of the WH.
Fox News is bringing out all their RomneyBots this morning! In one way or the other they have trashed Newt and tell us that Newt can’t win. Up next is Ann Coulter. Dick Moris just said that Newt has too change his message and needs to tone down his attacks on Romney and the MSM. LOL!!!
One of the reasons the SC voters went big time for Newt was his attack on the Elite Media. Conservatives do not like the Elite Media’s embrace of socialism and the leftist’s agenda.
I had Fox on 15 minutes before the polls closed (5:45 pm central time), but turned the TV off to read awhile. About 6:15, I turned the TV on and Fox had already announced Newt the winner with 1% or less of the vote in. They must have been getting an earful from the exit polls; that’s all I could surmise.
And while the others had what-you’d-expect concession speeches, Newt’s was generous to them and he took it to Obama. He acted presidential, as if he’d just won the nomination. I thought it a great moment.
but but but SC doesn’t matter the establishment, FOX and the elitist tell us.
Now the question is how many absentee ballots has Romney and Paul been working on and out of them just how many are actually from people who live in my state and how many live up north and use vacation addresses etc to cast an absentee.
Rove on Fox last night was behaving like a little boy who got caught stealing from his Gramma’s purse, and his Mother,Father and Grandfather had to told him to stop it.
Rove knows if Newt wins, those who have lied and tried to herd the Rinos against him, will be the new lepers in our nation.
Oh, right. Guess my old age has affected my memory. Thanks for the reminder.
Well, IF SC doesn’t matter to the establishment (as they say), why bother with manipulating absentee ballots?
Seriously, I don’t see them turning this blow-out for Gingrich around. And with Florida 9 days away, that’s what they need to concentrate on. Gingrich’s win forces that.
You wouldn't miss the election if you were dead... but you'd be voting straight Democrat ticket.
I’m in FL and trust me Romney and Paul have been putting a lot of focus on absentee.
Now why no other state?
Is it because down here we have photo ID laws and a closed primary so the way for them to get around it is to get those from up north to vote in our primary by using vacation addresses, maybe use a few dead people for good measure.
Does Bill O’reilly have a ‘change of heart?’ I hope so.
Yes, the into/on to shift is a nice twist of the Monty Python line.
Oy got better..
Pharmboy or Hetty_Fauxvert. Most likely Pharmboy, he said it first back in January '07 if memory serves...
Yes...I did do it back in ‘07, and I believe I was the first one, but perhaps not. No problem...it’s one of those things that several people could have come up with independently.
I am now curious why they quit? Could it be that they wanted to muzzle Newt? Could it be that they wanted a “disciplined” candidate? All I know is that the Elite Media and GOP are in a panic. Even Britt Hume is befuddled. Did you notice Caddell nodding in agreement with Britt at the end of the show last night?
Good graphic LJ!
I'd dig out the old three-color press from the basement, but this is not a job for screen printing.
Or maybe I'll just have some t-shirts and stickers printed up. I have them made for a lot of the youth groups I work with - some in fairly large quantities.
Lettuce know wear wee kin git Juan...
I’ll keep you posted.
You were never going to support a Bush again, either. Until you did. Newt = more of the same.
Bush was pro-life. Romney is an abortionist statist elitist control freak! His RomneyCare program is a socialist/fascist mandate forced on the people of Massachusetts. And now it’s festered, morphed and manifested on all of us as ObamaCare!!
We are going to hell in a hand basked fighting all the world wide, and being divided at home by those using cultural issues. I have stellar pro life creds, but I realize there will be no baby and no bathwater if we are nothing but a war mongering empire, which right now we are. And, arguably for nothing more than securing trade passageways for our corporate personshoods...Romney and Gingrich will just be more of same. It’s Ron Paul and his ideas which are contsitutional.
Sorry, didn’t mean to steal a tagline! I’ve actually been using “She turned me into a Newt . . . backer!” (I was going to say “Newt . . . supporter” until I decided that sounded like a jockstrap! LOL! Mine was totally Python-inspired. Just popped into my head a couple of weeks ago. (Or maybe I saw someone else’s tag and subconsciously decided I liked it. Who knows!)
