Texas Gov. Rick Perry Raises Money for Newt Gingrich
Yahoo ^ | February 10, 2012 | Mark R. Whittington

The Houston Chronicle is reporting Texas Gov. Rick Perry is quietly fundraising for Newt Gingrich, the man he endorsed for president when he dropped out of the race. Perry has not made any public speeches on Gingrich's behalf yet.

How is Perry raising money for Gingrich?

Perry has sent an email to potential donors with the title "Bold Reagan Conservatives." In the email he touted what he believes are Gingrich's conservative qualities, stating that giving his campaign money would send a message to President Barack Obama.

KEYWORDS: class; conservatism; gingrich2012; gopprimary; perry; rickperry
E-Mail: “There’s nothing more important than defeating President Obama and repealing Obamacare, which threatens the tenth amendment and the fiscal future of our country. That’s why I’ve endorsed Newt Gingrich for President.

“I know that Newt will provide a clear contrast to Obama, win in November, and undo Obama’s big government. Will you show your support for defeating Obamacare with a contribution of $25 or more today?”

The solicitation sets a goal of reaching 500 donors by midnight and adds, “Newt Gingrich isn’t backing down now and he won’t back down as President. He’ll boldly fight for conservative ideas and principles, like protecting the constitution, balancing the budget, and ending Obama’s war on religion.”

...... "P.S. Let’s send a message to President Obama that the Republican Party is going to nominate a bold Reagan conservative who will repeal Obamacare." - Source

Thank you for posting. I got this email yesterday and made another donation. God Bless Rick Perry and all that he is trying to do. I hope Newt's friend in Nevada helps, he has to know Romney looks weak-he should back up Newt if he wants big changes.

Gingrich ‘flawed, but he’s our guy’ “The poll, conducted for the AJC and the Georgia Newspaper Partnership, surveyed 625 likely GOP primary voters Monday through Wednesday. Gingrich was the choice of 43 percent of respondents, followed by Mitt Romney with 29 percent, Rick Santorum with 12 percent and Ron Paul with 6 percent. Georgians will go to the polls on March 6, Super Tuesday. With 76 GOP delegates, Georgia is the biggest prize among the 10 states voting that day..”

All one needs to do is compare how the various candidates governed when they had the chance. Newt Gingrich governed as a conservative. That is fact (1994 Contract with America). He’s not perfect, but he’s a fighter who fought for conservative causes when he had his chance. I trust him to do the right thing again regardless of some of his mistakes (which he admits) since then.

I also trust Governor Perry. I didn’t agree with him on every issue, but I have absolute confidence he’s a good Christian man who believes in a return to constitutional governance.

The Rostovs have waited until the last minute to abandon Moscow, even after it is clear that Kutuzov has retreated past Moscow and Muscovites are being given contradictory, often propagandistic, instructions on how to either flee or fight. Count Rostopchin is publishing posters, rousing the citizens to put their faith in religious icons, while at the same time urging them to fight with pitchforks if necessary. Before fleeing himself, he gives orders to burn the city. The Rostovs have a difficult time deciding what to take with them, but in the end, Natasha convinces them to load their carts with the wounded and dying from the Battle of Borodino. Unknown to Natasha, Prince Andrei is amongst the wounded.

When Napoleon’s Grand Army finally occupies an abandoned and burning Moscow, Pierre takes off on a quixotic mission to assassinate Napoleon. He becomes an anonymous man in all the chaos, shedding his responsibilities by wearing peasant clothes and shunning his duties and lifestyle. The only people he sees while in this garb are Natasha and some of her family, as they depart Moscow. Natasha recognizes and smiles at him, and he in turn realizes the full scope of his love for her.

Pierre saves the life of a French officer who fought at Borodino, yet is taken prisoner by the retreating French during his attempted assassination of Napoleon, after saving a woman from being raped by soldiers in the French Army. He becomes friends with a fellow prisoner, Platon Karataev, a peasant with a saintly demeanor, who is incapable of malice. In Karataev, Pierre finally finds what he has been seeking: an honest person of integrity (unlike the aristocrats of Petersburg society) who is utterly without pretense. Pierre discovers meaning in life simply by living and interacting with him. After witnessing French soldiers sacking Moscow and shooting Russian civilians arbitrarily, Pierre is forced to march with the Grand Army during its disastrous retreat from Moscow in the harsh Russian winter. After months of trial and tribulation—during which the fever-plagued Karataev is shot by the French—Pierre is finally freed by a Russian raiding party, after a small skirmish with the French that sees the young Petya Rostov killed in action.

Meanwhile, Andrei, wounded during Napoleon’s invasion, has been taken in as a casualty and cared for by the Rostovs, fleeing from Moscow to Yaroslavl. He is reunited with Natasha and his sister Maria before the end of the war. Having lost all will to live, he forgives Natasha in a last act before dying.

As the novel draws to a close, Pierre’s wife Hélène dies from an overdose of abortion medication (Tolstoy does not state it explicitly but the euphemism he uses is unambiguous). Pierre is reunited with Natasha, while the victorious Russians rebuild Moscow. Natasha speaks of Prince Andrei’s death and Pierre of Karataev’s. Both are aware of a growing bond between them in their bereavement. With the help of Princess Maria, Pierre finds love at last and, revealing his love after being released by his former wife’s death, marries Natasha.

Perry continues to show class! I hope he ends up in a position to be integrated into the next administration in a big way.

Just my guess.

Alaska 27 Newt
Georgia 76 Newt
Idaho 32 Santorum
Massachusetts 41 Romney
North Dakota 28 Santorum
Ohio 66 Santorum
Oklahoma 43 Santorum
Tennessee 58 Newt
Vermont 17 Romney
Virginia 49 Romney (but hopefully Paul)
Wyoming 29 Santorum

Instead of bashing, let’s hear why you think some of these won’t result this way.

No bashing naps! and thanks for posting this.

Wondering if there are any Ohip Freepers who can weigh in on Ohio. Do you really think that Santorum can win that state?

Here is the badass picture of the team, featuring (from left) Chuck Norris, evangelical leader and former Congressman J.C. Watts, GOP strategist Kellyanne Conway, Fred Thompson, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Michael Reagan, and Iowa State Rep. Linda Upmeyer. Todd Palin is apparently an honorary member.

I’ve seen Kellyanne on FOX defending Newt for a while. I think Todd Palin would have been a better choice than that women they stuck in on the back right. Maybe they’re hoping people won’t look too closely and might think it’s Sarah Palin? ;)

Thanks for identifying the two women. I’ve heard Conway’s name before but never Upmeyer’s.
