Governor Rick Perry is a Christian patriot who put his country first and it wasn’t the first time and it won’t be the last.

I have to tell you I was so disappointed when the Evangelical pastors didn’t endorse him! He’s the Evangelical! Gingrich and Santorum are Catholics like me.

Anyway, God bless Rick Perry!

Newt’s the only candidate I’ve ever heard, refer to the “loan” of the presidency.
I love that humble term.

Oooh, I love that term as well. I sure hope Romney is not fooling the good folks of FL into voting for him! He thinks it's his turn to be president! That it's owed to him.....like Obama!

It’s all hidden within threads...You might try googling Bain, Romney and a gal’s name pronounced Ga Deesh, she was a close cohort at Bain and attended a couple of Bilderbergs Meetings (possibly as his agent)

When freepers were searching the sources were disappearing as fast as BO’s school records....

Folks we’re not dealing with voting on the homecoming queen here....They’re playing for big time.

I agree and hope someone will write a great prayer and post it and everyone pings their lists. I’ll bump it to breaking news when pinged. I’m not qualified to write one, probably don’t have that great of a relationship with the Lord anyway. Most of my prayers are short one liners. Lord help me, Jesus, I’ve wasted it so, or Dear Lord please help this (family, person, nation). He probably gets tired of me asking for stuff. Please forgive me. Amen.

I attended today! It was a very good, albeit brief, event. Newt was 30 minutes late so we listened briefly to Matt Staver who sponsored the event and a few other panelists.

Newt’s first question was about his glowing words for FDR, TR and Woodrow Wilson. He said he didn’t really remember speaking glowingly about WW but considers him smart. He then went on to tell why he did with FDR (WWII was a very well run war) and TR as he considers safe water and food a necessity and TR created the FDA (after reading The Jungle about a guy that falls in a vat and becomes sausage!)

He spoke very well about stem cells, the Mexico City policy (foreign abortion aid), getting rid of all the czars. He said he is going to mandate congress stay in session and get bills passed on repealing obummercare, sarbanes and dodd frank so he can sign them the day he’s sworn in.

There were a few other subjects; all in all very good. A lot of Santorum people showed, even though Santorum didn’t and was supposed to, and he asked them to vote for him if they want a conservative to win Fl.

And how do you think that (his appeal to Santorum voters) was received? The live stream was excellent. I hope that it was being taped, did you see cameras rolling? He needs to get a copy of that video and circulate it, it was THAT good!

I sure didn't plan to get emotionally involved once Sarah Palin didn't run

I hear ya! I liked Cain but he seemed to have some stumbles in different areas which made me nervous. Then came the accusations. I don't know if they were all true or not but he got out and that really did it for me.

Took me a while to feel good about Newt but when I hear him speak, he grabs my attention. I've noticed that I stop what I'm doing and really listen to him speak. He's not just noise in the background like the other candidates.

I figure if he can get my attention, I should be stronger in my support of him.

I used to write the monthly prayer threads for Sarah Palin, wherein each week a new prayer was added, but I’m the first to admit I wasn’t very good at it.

I truly believe Newt Gingrich needs a weekly prayer thread that we can bump daily with a new prayer added daily. Members would add their own prayers.

Newt is such a brilliant, dedicated, pro-life, TEA Party patriot, who will restore our Republic, and with so much hate out there, we need to pray for his safety and well being and for his strength to carry our message so that voters will realize and see him for the good man and leader we see.

God bless and protect Newt Gingrich and all of his supporters.

I think I’ve heard Sarah say “loan” of the Presidency before. I don’t recall when . . . I’m think it was either her Labor Day speech in Iowa or maybe the GBeck thing in DC back in August. But IF so, only her and Newt have said that on my recollection at the moment.

Really? That’s wonderful. There’s a couple of versions.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Divine Power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

FYI

Limbaugh’s influence

Jeremy Peters has a fun piece exploring why so many conservative media figures have taken up residence in Palm Beach. The answer is not obvious – low taxes? nice weather? – but it is clear that Rush Limbaugh blazed the trail.

But it was Mr. Limbaugh’s arrival in 1996 that appears to be Anno Domini in this conservative punditocracy. Gay Gaines, a longtime confidante and fundraiser for Newt Gingrich, remembers the occasion well. Mr. Limbaugh now lives in an estate two doors down from her on North Ocean Boulevard. He fell in love with Palm Beach, she said, after visiting her over Memorial Day weekend in 1995.

“I might have a picture,” she said, disappearing into a sitting room just off her palatial living room, which faces the Atlantic and has floor-to-ceiling picture windows. Sure enough, she emerged a few seconds later with a photo of Mr. Limbaugh, Mr. Gingrich and William J. Bennett, the former adviser to Presidents Reagan and George H. W. Bush. The photo shows Mr. Limbaugh playing air guitar, Mr. Bennett playing an actual guitar and Mr. Gingrich holding a beer.

I thought I remembered Rush talking about Gay Gaines.
She’s dyna-O-mite! And let’s hope and pray she helps to dynamite THAT LOUSY O!

AND YAY!! HERMAN CAIN!!!! GO, NEWT!
