Most people do not realize that Fred Thompson was elected Tennessee senator in 1994 along with a wave of other GOP reps. In his remarks, Fred gives a large part of the credit to Newt Gingrich for nationalizing the election and for following up with major legislative achievements.

It was also interesting to discover that Rick Santorum was also elected to the U.S. Senate in 1994 and served along with Fred Thompson for at least 16 years. So Fred had a chance to observe both men in Congress...And so he endorsed Newt.

Newt deserves more credit than he is given for his major accomplishments as Speaker. I am glad that Thompson remembers.

BTW, Newt will be on O'Reilly tomorrow night to talk about his gas program.

ElectAd should replace "capital" with "capitol."

The last person Old Glue Horse endorsed didn’t do very well.
Can u say McCain? In fact, many people thought Thompson was McCain’s stalking horse.

With or without Thompson, Newt won’t carry Tennessee.

I really respect Thompson, and he had my vote last go around.

I really hope that the electorate isn’t so stupid this time around.

Newt has surrounded himself with some solid colleagues.

He’s also pimping the national popular vote which is a progressive plan and another Soros project.

Why is he running against him this time, given that politics is a team sport?

*wink*

Please review the debate between Newt and Obama at YouTube. It is exceptional. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHWiw9Yn1zg

This is a preview of the debate between Mr. Newt and Mr. O if the American people research the facts and become truly informed. Not the hype, not the negative and untruthful ads, but the facts. Go to Newt.org and see the truth to all the negative ads by Romney and others. It is your responsibility as an American voter to be informed. DO NOT TRUST only what you hear, research the facts for yourself and then tell your neighbor, your friends, and your coworkers.

This is the only way WE THE PEOPLE can have the candidate of our choice…not the choice of the republican establishment. After all, the republican establishment gave us Bob Dole, which gave us Clinton, then McCain, which gave us Obama. If the republican establishment has their way, we will get Romney, which will give us another 4 years of Obama. Choose wisely, this could be the most important vote of your lifetime and that of your children and grandchildren. NEWT GINGRICH 2012! EAGLES UP!

Have to tell you that I almost threw up on my keyboard listening to Santorum's speach tonight. Watching that frog face Rove on Fox also made me sick.

Heard Krauthammer say that Newt has nowhere to go after the south...but also heard Rush say "don't count Newt out"

Now the Romney gang is on and that is tum's time. I am so disheartened even though I expected this...it is disgusting! of course they are thanking Trump, Brewer, Christie and etc. All I can say is GOD HELP AMERICA and hang tought Newt!

It is a tough night for Newt supporters! We have been forewarned, from Newt’s lips, that he must take Georgia, and perform well in these Super Tuesday states to be successful, after MONEY has kept him in the freezer. So, yes, I’m fearful.

The media is roughing Romney up and using our divisiveness to do it, to damage him in the general election, should he ever drag across the finish line.

Newt’s ads begin tomorrow for the South, and there are no more debates. God be with us.
