If former House Speaker Newt Gingrich continues in the Republican primaries, not only is he doing more good than harm, he may be the only candidate left who can save the Republican Party.
The Republican establishment is bound and determined that it is going to impose a Mitt Romney on us. Conservatives do not want former Gov. Mitt Romney.
You see, we have danced this dance before. We had Sen. John McCain shoved down our throats in 2008. How did that work out for us? We have George W. Bush, who barely won his races, and before that we had former Sen. Bob Dole, who blew it, and George H.W. Bush, who could not win re-election against an unknown governor from Arkansas!
We conservatives have had it.
The conservative and Tea Party bloc of the Republican Party supports Newt Gingrich.
We conservatives held our noses and voted for John McCain in 2008. That did it for us. We are not doing it in 2012. The Tea Party overwhelmingly supports Gingrich over Romney. One exit poll showed Gingrich getting 45 percent of the Tea Party vote versus 14 percent for Romney.
Gingrich is the only one in the race who has a chance of uniting the Republican Party. If Romney wins the nomination, a quarter and a half of the Tea Party voters say they will not vote him in the general election. That is a ticket to defeat.
By staying in the race, Newt holds out the possibility of saving the Republican Party...

There is a small difference between a liberal democrat and a liberal republican but they are MUCH closer to each other than either is to a Conservative.
The Tea Party overwhelmingly supports Gingrich over Romney. One exit poll showed Gingrich getting 45 percent of the Tea Party vote versus 14 percent for Romney.It can not be any plainer. If you are a Tea Party Conservative - you support Newt.
It wouldn’t be nice to say what we conservatives would like shoved down RINOmney’s throat.

If Romney wants my vote he needs to drop out of the race and endorse Newt Gingrich.
With Newt as the nominee, Pubbies keep the House & take the Senate (at worst).
All bets are off if Romney's the nominee. I would expect the Pubbies keep the House (barely), but lose the Senate.
There aren't enough Mittbots to make up for the loss of the conservative base's energy.
How about we start with the entire text of the R0mneycare legislation ...

What can we do? what would the Founding fathers do? start a new Party—start a movement—a reform movement within the GOP. Its work from within or leave the sinking ship and start a 3rd Party. I would see this 3rd Party in a new way—Not like the Old Bullmoose Party, or the Grange or Know Knothings—but a real 3rd party— Remember the Republicans were once a 3rd Party before the Civil War. We strive for a full Conservative Party. Run people for ALL offices, from statehouse to white house. Use people who may well not be in politics—sports heroes-war heroes—Actors (Conservatives only) —businessmen— and even TV people—as well as the regular folks. We have set goals and beliefs—simple ones that all can understand: Smaller Gov. Less Taxes. No Abortion. 10 amendment. The Tea Party favorites.
I have been around a long time and always pulled the R lever because I believed in the Republican values, the constitution etc.
After McCain I just felt used. Like I was a rube being manipulated by the RNC who doesn’t give a damn about me, or my family, or the constitution. I am certainly fed up. And Romney is just the standard big government enabler I have been disgusted by. Newt has conviction and Romney is definitely the country club, big government RINO.
We are on the brink of financial ruin. I am seriously worried about my family now. I am mostly interested in finance, and we will likely hit a hyper-inflationary scenario that will bankrupt all of our savings. The math is the math. We are past ever being able to pay this down. If interest rates spike it is over. We will be impoverished.
This is not the time for the “Goldman Sachs” candidate (Romney) or it is game over for the middle class American. We will be reduced to begging the government for handouts as our money will be worthless, then it is the straight path to socialist tyranny and global governance - as we will be broke, desperate, scared serfs by then.
Romnomoney cares not what Santorum’s campaign bill is sage attempts to buy off Bachmann.
...and there you have it!
Just like Obamacare: what is going to stop the Ruling Elite?
Right: no one.
Now go pay your taxes - your government is broke.
“If former House Speaker Newt Gingrich continues in the Republican primaries, not only is he doing more good than harm, he may be the only candidate left who can save the Republican Party. “
Newt Gingrich has pledged all that he is for this country and for the conservative Reagan, Tea Party movement!
Let’s get in all the way for Newt Gingrich!
I’m with this guy. NO MORE NOSE HOLDING!!! Another RINO candidate like Romney and I will not vote for them!!! PERIOD!!! I’ll vote my local ticket and congress ticket and that is it. One liberal homo loving socialist pig is the same as the other. If Romney or Oscuma wins, it is the same to me. Policies will be the same. Anti American, anti Christian, anti conservative, anti military, pro homo.
LOL! Me too.
That said, I really think there is still time to defeat Romney and keep him from becoming the nominee. For one thing, Romney is an arrogant [fill in the blanks] and he has been looking really ugly as he sneers and gloats. He’s just like Obama in that respect, and I think his own behavior is going to have an equally negative impact on his popularity in the weeks going forward.
The question will be whether or not the press will cover it and show him as he really is.
I’m no big fan of the Mittster. But next November when the choice is between Mitt and the Zero who will they be voting for?
