Skip to comments.Oliver North supports Newt, won’t ‘entertain the nightmare’ of an Obama re-election
Posted on 02/10/2012 5:39:48 AM PST by Josh Painter
Retired U.S. Marine Corps officer Oliver North told The Daily Caller that he would like to see former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as commander in chief, saying that another four years of President Barack Obama would be a nightmare.
North told TheDC at the Conservative Political Action Conference that two years ago, when [Gingrich] suggested he might run, he asked for my support. I pledged I would do it, he said. (RELATED: More interviews from CPAC)
Its time for us to hire a commander in chief who doesnt feel necessary to run around the world apologizing for America, said North.
Im deeply concerned that if we dont hire a new commander in chief
we can indeed end up in very, very serious jeopardy in this country, he added.

This is wonderful, just wonderful. I’ve always liked Oliver North.
Wow! Zell Miller...I missed it. Any links on him?
Zell is national co-chairman of Newt’s presidential campaign:
OTOH, he's been getting his tail kicked since S.C.
For the record, I think Newt would probably be a decent president. In a head-to-head with Santorum I'd probably vote for him.
OTOH, he's been getting his tail kicked since S.C.
Santorum, meanwhile, has been doing some tail-kicking.
Say no to Mitt.
Super! I met LtCol North while he was campaigning for U.S. Senator from VA. Ollie knows well how the “insiders” club works against honest Conservatives. When Ollie ran for U.S. Senator from VA, VA’s senior U.S. Senator, John Warner, would not endorse Ollie and actually supported the Democrat in that race.
Note: For the benefit of those unfamiliar w/VA political history, former U.S. Senator, John Warner, was a prominent “RINO” “country club” Republican and should not be confused w/VA’s current U.S. Senator, Mark Warner, a Democrat.)
Given his strong feelings on the role of the Commander-in-Chief, it stands to reason that Perry should have had his endorsement early on in the process.
If you haven’t seen this, read it:
After reading the first two chapters of Tricia Ericson’s book CAN MITT ROMNEY SERVE TWO MASTERS on Amazon and the above article.
It seems a possibility that Mitt removed Michael Steele because of the anti any one of color, or not being able to manipulate Steele, Mitt then replaced him with a compliant man at the top who allowes him to place his people in positions within the RNC.
What do you think?
I would love to have Oliver North as our president.
These are good people and real conservatives. I like North and have always felt a great deal of respect for him.
This will wind up in another disaster similar to 2008. Mark my words.
True patriots all! the absolute creme de la creme of true American patriots are behind Newt! include Jim Robinson on the list.
The fact is NOT a candidate running accomplished so much for our country as Gingrich. God bless Ollie! I loved working for him in Virginia and what a beautiful family he has...the media went after North just like they are going after Newt. It was a hell of a battle. Same scenario..the gop establishment split and went after Ollie which resulted in Chuck Robb winning. Eventually Robb lost to Allen. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NEWT! God bless the true American heroes that know a great candidate when they see one and it isnt Mitt or Rick!
“It seems a possibility that Mitt removed Michael Steele because of the anti any one of color, or not being able to manipulate Steele, Mitt then replaced him with a compliant man at the top who allowes him to place his people in positions within the RNC.
What do you think?”
I think you are crazy. Steele got dumped because fundraising was less than expected. The election to replace Steele went about 6 ballots. This is stupid. If you organize a coup you make sure it does not go 6 ballots or you don’t do a coup.
Great American patriots behind Newt!
Great line up of endorsements. I wish that all or several of these folks would hit the campaign trail with Newt. Time is of the essence!
Newt gets Ollie North’s endorsement!!
Another patriot, another REAL conservative.
GO NEWT GO—its about the survival of our country!!
Please Freepmail me to be added to the Ollie North ping list.
Oliver North is nothing short of an American Hero and deserves to have his opinions respected!
WOO-HOO! We love Ollie North!!!!
No, I meant that Santorum was doing the tail-kicking, not Newt.
Well, I think there are a lot of folks angry w/the GOP and venting about it ...not surprising; we're all angry w/the GOP elitists!
Everyone who has read my posts knows how I feel about Romney; however, criticizing someone’s religion always worries me; because it appears to strike at the very heart of the Constitution and our system of government which I believe in so deeply. (You should understand that I have only known a very few Mormon's personally; and, of those I have known, all appeared to be decent, honest people.)
That said, there are some real “horror story” exposee’s being posted on FR from individuals purporting to have broken free from the Mormon Church.
So, I am both alert and concerned about this potential; however, it is also possible that these posts are not factual or relate only to some extreme faction of the Mormon Church. For instance, I am not a Baptist; however, I have quite a few Baptist friends and I doubt they would want to be characterized as being the same as those jerks in KS who claim to be “Baptists” when they picket the funerals of service members.
So, I am still trying to form an opinion on the Mormon Church and it's policies/values. But whatever opinion I arrive at; it will not make my opinion of Romney any better; and, for me, that is the most significant thing to stay focused upon.
Even if the allegations are true about the Mormon Church; it is always politically dangerous to pursue that type of criticism as most Americans are instinctively sensitive and repelled by any criticism of someone’s religion. In essence, the “knee jerk” factor would not be in favor of those criticizing Romney for his being a member of the Mormon Church.
I think I will order the book from Amazon and see what Ms Ericson has to say.
Yes, and mostly for violating the 11th commandment on a minuscule budget and establishing a 'mean' image. I believe that if he had just ignored Mitt and instead campaigned as hard against Obama, Newt would be on top now - and our next president.
Yes, he means the unscathed Santorum who hasn’t been subjected to Romney’s slime machine.
Excellent. I really think Newt is the man for out times. He has the experience and the Conservatism needed. Santorum just does not have the experience needed at this time. Rick would make a good Vice President under Newt. GO NEWT GO!
Agreed on the criticism. I'm steering clear(see below):
There's another book I like entitled Mormonism,Mama, and me by Granny Geer. Used to do outreaches at the Brigham Young University in Liae, Oahu, Hi back in the 70's and to be honest yes, Mormonism is a cult( Pearl of Great Price, Doctrines and Covenants and their Book of Mormon "added" to the Bible which the Bible says the curses will be added unto them Rev 22:19 and somewhere I think in Deuteronomy, not going there this AM)
To be honest though, the Mormons going door to door on the North Shore of Oahu and elsewhere were some of the nicest most God fearing folks I met. I'm not a Romney fan at all but I certainly would feel much more comfortable with a Mormon in the WH than a sorta muzzie Black theology divider in there that has proven not just his racism but he hasn't a clue on uniting. The Hx of the Mormon church is an eye opener and has some extremely weird beliefs and being a Messianic Jew I'd be careful and laugh at their old statements they were the lost tribes or Israel, and more. But again, I'll reiterate what so many of my Christian friends have said about devout Mormons one friend saying," hey they might be Mormons but danged if they are good examples of what a Christian should be." I'm not going to bash them though for their beliefs because I don't want to create a sh**storm of a debate I'm not willing to entertain. have fun in your search. It gets real interesting real fast!
The Lemmings shift with the wind. Now they are all swarming Santorum and really dont know why.
I see Newt's letting Santorum ride the wave for a time....good move. There's no doubt in my mind that SAntorum and Newt are communicating and this to take out Romney and oppose the medias push for Romney.
Our guys will win in the end I think, but it's going to be war from here on in....and we'll see many twists ahead as well. I trust Newt's tactics and how he's moving throughout this Primary......wonderful to watch.
On a religious level....and as with many cults who use Christian verbiage etc. to recruit members, and then utilize a “steps” program of qualifying for membership....followed by be;ieve and devotion only to their organization...so too is the LDS programs of “initiation”. Thus they lay claim to being the “only” true religion....which is on mark to all cultism practices and why the Christian community has never accepted LDS as a Christian organization or church.
Even their leadership has proclaimed the Christ they serve is not the same Christ of Christianity. And the LDS went into major damage control once that cat was out of the bag.
LDS is a counterfeit religion....make no mistake about that. But the problem with Romney is that he is basically one of their “high Priests”.....would you vote for a catholic bishop or priest for President? Of course not.
It does matter what our President's beliefs are....I would prefer an atheist as President rather than a cults leader.
Further Romney is not who people would be voting for....it will be the leadership of the LDS and they will determine how this country will go...Romney will simply comply.
I love LtC Oliver North! Newt is amassing an A-list of conservative endorsements. I didn't know, and just learned on this thread, that Zell Miller has been the co-chairman of Newt's national presidential campaign since May. Like many conservatives, I love Zell Miller as well.
One might wish that there had been a more visible campaign to let potential supporters know who all has endorsed Newt. It sure might help.
Romney speaking right now at CPAC here:
Am going to listen to see what nonesense he’s going to deliver today....he’s already stumbling and fumbling
Go NEWT Go!!!!!! That’s our man! What a pleasure it’s been donating to his campaign...putting my money where my mouth is!
We've got a deal that's going to pay us handsomely sometime in the next month. I'm going to send Newt something just as soon as we get paid.
Like you said, we've got to put our money where our mouth is.
It won't happen in full force until it is obvious to the slime machine Newt is out of the race. Then Santorum has served his purpose.
I would feel best if neither Obama or Romney were occupying the White House after January 2013. I could only make a decision between them under the greatest duress. Perhaps that will be the case on election day; but I certainly hope not!
