Herman Cain rallies Georgia crowd for Newt Gingrich
WaPo ^ | 11:21 AM ET, 02/18/2012 | Juliet Eilperin

Posted on 02/18/2012 12:05:52 PM PST by Red Steel

CUMMING, Ga.— Herman Cain may no longer be seeking the GOP presidential nomination, but he still has plenty of fans in Georgia.

The erstwhile presidential candidate received a standing ovation at South Forsyth High School, where he introduced former House speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) at a county precinct meeting.

“You know, I knew I had some friends in Forsyth County,” Cain said, as the crowd cheered. “But we’re here because we believe Newt Gingrich should be the next president of the United States in America.”

“And contrary to what the mainstream, lame-stream, lapdog media want you to believe, he can pull it out,” he told them.

The former Godfather’s Pizza chief executive identified three reasons why his former competitor deserves to be president: jobs, energy and bold ideas.

Referring to the economic plans of Gingrich’s GOP opponents, Cain said, “their proposals continue to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic,” adding that they replace old loopholes with new ones.

The funds raised in these FReepathons go to pay our current quarter expenses. But we're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little extra now, if we can, and the rest next quarter.

It speaks well to Gingrich that two of the three candidates who withdrew from the race have not only endorsed but are actively working for him now.

OH, you mean those days when both Herman Cain and the backstabbing Santorum both picked Newt Gingrich for their VP choice? Those days, before Santorum started running attack ads against Newt Gingrich? Got it.

I’d be pretty elated if Cain became Newt’s VP. I doubt it would happen, but it would be great. Cain could also help us out with the black vote as well. Back in the good old days before Cain got lynched, I had all my black friends in favor of 999 and supporting him. They had all voted for Obama in the previous election because he was black. (They told me so.)

A big secret is that they are actually far more conservative than most people realize. In fact, they don’t even realize it. They believe in all the hogwash about Republicans being racist, fat cats and other things. But if you actually discuss specific policies, they’re actually right on our same page. I had my best friend sitting there basically condemning every part of Obama’s policies, though she didn’t even know it. When you mention that, they have a problem accepting it. The propaganda is quite strong. But with Herman Cain, we have a powerful weapon, and a powerful good man, that defeats the core of the class-war/racist propaganda the left and popular culture peddles.

Two good men, Newt and Herman. Along with Rick Perry, they have so much to offer in helping our country. As another Freeper said on this thread, it speaks volumes that Newt has gotten the endorsement of the candidates that ran along side him.

With the exception of Ron Paul, who Mitt Romney has shamelessly brown-nosed, no one likes or trusts Mitt. Santorum doesn’t like him either, but he will definitely take the Santorum/Romney or Romney/Santorum deal being pushed by the GOP E. When that happens, “not Romney” voters are finally gonna see what Rick is really made of...Selfish Ambition and No Plan for our Country.

Nah, it's more than that.

Gingrich's job is not to go to Washington to make friends in Congress or with the inside the DC beltway types. He's going to do his damndest to bust up that ole boys and girls network. You know, just the opposite what others do when they get to Washington. They join the DC elitist club. Alas like Ricky, who endorsed snarlin Arlen over Toomey:

"FELLOW PENNSYLVANIA SENATOR Rick Santorum has slavishly praised Specter in a television spot. Santorum also sent his own staff to buoy Specter's team in the field, and has told everyone within earshot that the primary challenger, Rep. Pat Toomey, is "too conservative for Pennsylvania." "

http://spectator.org/archives/2004/04/21/wrong-man-for-the-job#

So what is Rick's excuse here? That he 'slavishly' endorsed liberal Specter over conservative Pat Toomey.

It seems like the lame-stream drive-bys are now pushing for a Santorum vs. barry match (their dream of mittens has gone bye bye,...sniffle sniffle and they know it).

They KNOW barry would kick his a$$. Would Santorum be better than barry? Heck, my crazy cats would be better than barry, but Santorum DOES NOT HAVE THE PUNCH!!

NEWT HAS TKO!!

That is one of the big reasons I was a Cain supporter back in 2004, during his Senate race, and was a Cain supporter again in 2011. In fact, I managed to point out my 2004 Cain pin (I still had it) to Mr. Cain last year with the observation that “Not all of us are Johnny-come-lately Herman Cain supporters.”

The other big reason was he was very much a fiscal conservative Washington outsider.

Great picture. It does speak volumes to me as well that Herman Cain and Rick Perry are supporting a fellow competitor. I was wrong about Gov. Perry, being in the race for himself, so, my apologies to Rick and his supporters. The person, I defended for a number of months was Santorum on his character (not his over spending and ties to the Bush administration). After seeing some of his opportunist stunts and false attacks on Newt, I have changed my mind of not supporting him. Newt/Palin (2 true reformers)

Not a good excuse ...not at all. Here's the pertinent question not asked.

Who would have headed the Senate Judiciary Committee if Specter lost his senate seat in 2004 to Toomey?

No doubt someone more conservative than Snarlin Arlen would have headed the Senate Judiciary Committee. Who was in line to take over - Hatch perhaps? I doubt he would have went against Alito or Roberts. In the end, it was a party-line vote 10 to 8 for and against Alito, and his replacement would have STILL voted for Alito or Roberts. This still shows however Saint Rick is not all for principle that some of you guys like to think and he is a player with the GOP-E club.

You got that right Red Steel. Newt knows the Capitol Building like the back of his hand. Knows where the back room meetings take place. Who runs them and how the maneuvering is done.

Newt is every Congress persons worst nightmare. He knows how the place runs and he knows how to get things done there.

It will be very hard to snow President Gingrich when he takes over the Oval Office.

Newt will, probably, do well in Georgia, but it’s the other states that Newt needs to improve upon. How can Newt become a frontrunner again, if Newt, even, can become a frontrunner again?

"Can you tell me how to post pics on the thread?"

I do very little HTML myself so when I need to post a picture and can't remember how I simply right click the Freerepublic web page and select "View Page Source" to see the HTML version. I find in the HTML where someone has posted a picture and duplicate what they did except that I replace the URL they provided with another URL that points to my picture. It works for me and I don't have to waste valuable memory cells to learn HTML in detail.

You need to upload your pictures to a web hosting site such as Photobucket. It is free and very easy to use. You will need to setup a new account there. Once you have a Photobucket account and have uploaded some pictures, you can just "mouse over" a picture and it will show you several link forms. Click on direct link and it will copy the URL to your clipboard. Then just paste it into your post in the img sec "name" decribed previously.

Gingrich’s Virtues

"And as for Gingrich’s Republican “colleagues,” whom the Editors applaud for ejecting him from the speakership, no one can deny that they had their reasons. But is there not another side of that story worth telling?

In the seven years they controlled Congress after Gingrich left, didn’t these esteemed colleagues have something of a “weakness for half-baked (and not especially conservative) ideas”? Under a Republican president, they added over $3 trillion to the federal deficit, shunned conservative policy in favor of Beltway influence-peddling, and so damaged the GOP brand that we ended up, first, with an electoral rout that lost the majority Gingrich had worked years to forge, and then, with Obama.

How much should I really care that Newt’s fabulous colleagues think his reemergence would be a disaster for Republicans?

Lest these characters forget, it is the Tea Party and President Obama’s radicalism that have put them back in the saddle — 2010 was not a merit promotion; they were the only alternative in town." 

 

Newt terminator
                                                                

NEWT GINGRICH.

excerpt from your article: Specter is the man, after all, who enthusiastically supports taxpayer funding of abortions and voted against the Partial Birth Abortion Ban; who's against tort reform and school choice; who supports racial quotas, who helped invent the verb to Bork, who voted "yea" on certifiable pinko Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and who, as the presumptive heir to the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, threatens to toss any traditional jurists. His record only gets better. Specter fought Bush's tax cuts tooth and nail; has a lifetime love affair with labor unions; and was the only Republican senator to vote for a bill allowing the International Criminal Court to try American soldiers -- an attack on our sovereignty so heinous even John F. Kerry voted against it."

don't know if you read the article, but wow, to support specter and not toomey... that's a leap. Thanks for sending that... it was so long ago.. I am looking for a factual or even editorial opinion, that the successor to Specter on the Judiciary committee would have been a conservative, who would have made those same votes, by which sanctimonium justifies his endorsement. I have been googling some really tortured search items but so far getting nothing back... but I have a real sense what you say, based on your expertise, is valid... I just need to find it to make whatever I write unassailable. At the risk of presuming on your generosity, if you can point me in any direction to do that, I would greatly appreciate it... thanks again.
