Nail in the coffin or punch in the gut?..............
I wonder if it had anything to do with the Nevada stuff going on.
Drudge has had a picture of Mitt and Trump up all morning. Then the question, “Mitt or Newt for Trump”.
So first it was Gingrich, now it’s Romney?
Are the media reports just that wrong, or did he flip-flop? Or will it be Ron Paul by this afternoon?
It's a punch in the gut, but it won't stop Romney.
Romney?? Somehow, me thinks not
What happened to Newt? That was the last I heard about Trump’s endorsement?
well well well, i thought it was Gingrich last night....who fed the gingrich story unless it was Romneys campaign to make the endorsement even more of a slam.
Thought everyone yesterday was saying he was backing Newt. Did Bain just invest in Trump Enterprises late last night?
Of course, I believe Trump will back Obama.
Either way, Romney still sucks.
I was cautious about this from the get-go since, Trump is ideologically much closer to Romeny than Newt.
Either way, Romney still sucks.
Trump endorsement meaningless.
Again, this is a Trump PR show. Disinformation everywhere until he steps in front of the microphone and tells use who is for.
And the real question is this...outside of his own circles, who really cares and puts credence in who Donald Trump endorses?
I'm would not welcome the man's endorsement because IMHO his own moral values, particularly in terms of fidelity, are not something to pin your star to, and he seems like a person who expects payback and loyalty to him above all else. Not a good combination when it comes to our President.
If he endorses Romney, that means he IS backing Obama.
LOL. If I was Newt, I wouldn't give a rats a** about an endorsement from the Donald.
Yup. Probably take a week or more to resolve.
Ever get the feeling that those of us on FR and a few other conservative websites are all that is left of the conservative movement in America??
Are we THAT much of a minority in America?
Romney was to much a coward to even committ to Trump’s debate and now Trump endorses him?
Checked CNN web page, not a sign of this so-called endorsement.
Shelayne, don’t you mean Mitt R’money is still the hollow man, Washington insider who, along with his Wall Street backers, will spend any amount of money to keep the game going?
Typical Trump. These primaries are the biggest news stories and he loves to piggy-back on anything that will keep him in the public eye.
He is Gloria Allred with more money.
Classic disinformation sleaze tactic from the Kking of Sleaze, little Lord Mitt-Witt.
He’s gonna get his, believe it.
(and what he ‘gets’ ain’t gonna be either the nomination OR the White House.)
It is on the front page my friend under politics.
The modern hair transplants don't look anything like Plugs Biden, anymore.
Trump is playing games with the media. My guess is he is going to come out and endorse the new season of the Apprentice, or the American People, or something like that.
Inddeed. How in the world could we get to such a small minority just by purging so many of the impure Republicans who didn't align 100.00%? Such a message of ideological purity should be very popular, no?
I thought it odd that Trump would endorse Gingrich. Nevertheless, if it’s Romney much will be made of it; and if it’s Gingrich its importance will be diminished. What does Trump want?
What do you think Romney will say if he gets Trump’s endorsement? What about Gingrich? Both of them will have to play it somehow, no matter which one is graced with, or inflicted with, his endorsement.
I just heard on Fox that he was gonna endorse Newt.
But does it really matter that much? I can’t imagine my vote being influenced by Trump.

Looks to me like it is a CNN staffer’s blog
“CNN Political Director Mark Preston”
This is what happens when people don’t have principles. When story is Trump endorses Newt, everyone loves Trump and think he is the greatest thing since sliced bread (on the other thread). When story is Trump to endorse Mitt, Trump is bashed as the anti-Christ. Folks absolutely have ZERO principles.
And only slightly better hair. : )
Well, that is the way I feel about it. If he endorses Newt he is the greatest thinker of the 21st century. If he endorses Mitt, then he is a sink and a low life. It is the way I roll. LOL>
Let’s see if Mittens is dumb enough to accept it.
I think it could be worth a lot of primary votes particularly in the northeastern states, especially to Gingrich. I’ve lived up there and difficult as it may be for you to imagine, Trump has a lot of fans.
I wasn't aware that either Trump or Romney actually had an ideology -- you can't really call "Look out for Number 1!" an actual ideology . . . :(
A phone call b/t Trump’s camp & the Romney camp took place before Trump flew to Vegas last night ABC has learned
Even a good haircut.
He could get a stylist that could take the few hairs that he has left, and cut it in such a way that he doesn't look like he is wearing an orange davy crockett coonskin cap.
One of the donald's favorite slurs against his enemies is, "He's a joke", I guess he has no mirrors.
Why does anyone care?
For the life of me I’ll never understand why anyone would care about this gigantic egomaniac.
If it is simply just because Trump decided to take on Obama for the last year, then that is pretty weak, quite frankly.
The report, which is at this point is a rumor or leak at best, is from CNN's political director, Mark Preston. I assume it's not quite considered news, since it hasn't been confirmed yet. This might be per CNN policy.
