Gingrich pledges to support GOP rival Mitt Romney
Associated Press ^ | March 27, 2012

Posted on 03/27/2012 4:30:27 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Under pressure to help unify his party, Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich pledged Tuesday to support Mitt Romney if the former Massachusetts governor wins enough convention delegates to clinch the nomination by the end of the GOP primary season in June.

If Romney falls short, "I think you'll then have one of the most interesting, open conventions in American history," the former House speaker said as he campaigned for votes in next week's Maryland primary.

They cut out 90% of what Newt said... he also said that he has not won it yet and he (Newt) is in it to win it.

What's the alternative?

This election is going to define the "lesser" of two evils.

Face it, we're screwed, barring a miracle.

The AP just doesn’t get it. The more they push Mitt, the less we like him. About Newt, what was he supposed to say, that he WON’T support the nominee? Why doesn’t someone ask Romney if he would support Newt if HE wins the nomination? What about Rick? Would Romney support Rick if he won the nomination? These are loaded questions only asked to imply that the others support Mitt. All they have said is that they would support the nominee (whoever it turns out to be). Romney is trying to turn it into an endorsement and it will backfire on him.

Come on now, you really think after this heated primary season is over with, that any elected Republican or even your favorite conservative talk show host or blogger will go public with a statement that they can’t and won’t back our candidate? They may wait till a VP is chosen like when McCain picked Palin, but they ALL will be backing the ticket. Ron Paul may be the only exception, but we all know he’s out their on the edge any way.

That being said, Newt saying this now, could be a sign that he is about out of the race, and he knows the probable outcome.

I don’t understand your sadness. Are you saying that it’s better for Obama (socialist, Marxist, communist, hater of this country and its constitution) to beat Romney, if Romney is the candidate? Romney has warts, but Obama is death to this nation if he gets 4 more years.

Do you actually believe that this country will be recognizable after 4 more years of Obama? That any member of the opposition party will want to or be able to undo all that Obama will have done after 8 years? I don’t believe so.

Newt has said for awhile that he would support any of the others, over the One. He also said which the AP cuts out, that he is not going to stop until Romney gets 1144 delegates. I think Newt should stay in the event one of the others have a major outing of an unknown. Newt has to stay in and talk about the issues. No other candidate is taking Obama on one to one. Romney says we cannot be too critical of Obama. Newt cannot say that he does not want Romney as the nominee if it came to that point-he has to keep it presidential as well as coming across as positive not resentful. The media is trying to keep Newt off his message and keep him on this.

Are you familiar with Mitt Romney's record of judicial appointments in Massachusetts? Obama would have no issue with nominating any of them for judgeships.

I cannot vote for Romney. We need to focus on what is important....the Senate and House. We have enough to try and keep them without voting for a liberal Republican which will just enhance the GOPe that they were right. Principles here have gone down hill this primary and not it seems the General.

"If he does get a majority by the time Utah votes on the 26th of June, if he gets a majority, obviously I will support him and will be delighted to do everything I can to defeat Barack Obama," Gingrich said.

I don't see the above quote as saying that he is out of the race.

He got one Maryland vote today and I felt pretty good giving it to him.

Newt I think understands. But some on FR haven’t a clue how truly poisonous Obama is, and how much more freedom he will have in his second term to do his evil bidding. He demonstrated a little of that in that open mic slip. Or maybe they don’t believe that there really is a socialist machine behind Obama that has an agenda to radically change this country.

Obama’s 8-years in office IS their window. We must close this window in November. America’s survival counts on it.

“I just can’t believe people are allowing Romney a pass on this.”

People have whipped themselves up to believe that nothing could ever possibly or conceivabley ever ever ever be worse than Obama. Absurd. He is idle, unimaginative and not very smart or experienced. Again, he is like the crass Ernst Rohm of American progressives, whereas Bishop Willard is the diligent and organized Heinrich Himmler of American progressives.

I remember posting on FR about this time in 2008 that a McCain yard sign would never cast its shadow on my front lawn. I wasn’t going to sit out in November, but I certainly wasn’t going to lift a finger for him or show my support in any way. That changed with one helluva fantastic VP pick. Being a big fan of Palin long before he chose her, I was doing cartwheels when he picked her. I was immediately trying to find where I could get McCain/Palin signs, buttons and bumper stickers. And I was donating that very night.

Who I wonder could be Romney’s Palin? He better start giving that some deep thought.

My principles would be violated by doing anything that would help Obama win reelection.

Romney isn't my first choice or my second, but if the Republican Electorate puts him up against Obama, (despite my Primary Vote for Gingrich or Santorum), the Republican gets my Vote, period.

Mark Levin is a man of principle, so I'll go with him on this, even if it means Voting for an Orange Juice Can.

What I am sad or disheartened over is Newt didn't do better as I believe he is the greatest candidate since Reagan to run for president and it is a missed opportunity. However, there is such an intense dislike for Obama that we have NO choice but to support Romney and pray he wins and turns a leaf over to a much more conservative constitutionalist.

Of course Obommie the Commie has to go

Maybe ... maybe not. Guess we'll find out when the convention is contested. Regardless, Romney was a third place loser to McCain, and he's an even bigger loser today than he was in 2008. He couldn't beat Obama if Obama ran under the Communist Party.

If Romney is the GOP nominee, I hope that his running-mate will be a conservative who has been a congressman and a governor, since four of the last five republican VP’s were congressmen. Those four VP’s were Dick Cheney, Dan Quayle, George H.W. Bush, and Gerald Ford. The exception is Nelson Rockefeller. Bobby Jindal and Butch Otter would be good choices.

Who I wonder could be Romney’s Palin?

From my POV, until and unless Romney became as mentally/physically unstable as McCain, he could have no Palin. My thought was that if McCain won, there was a very good chance he'd go Captain Queeg before his four years were up ("Ah! But the strawberries -- that's where I had them!") or he would suffer some medical debilitation due to the mental stress of office. Therefore the person we were really electing, was his VP. So I gladly voted for Palin.

In my heart, after some consideration and review, I believe Romney presents a strain of evil that is more potent than Obama's. Obama has an excuse -- morally, he truly doesn't know any better, nor do his followers. He truly is a void when it comes to perceiving the moral evil of abortion, the moral evil of forcing people to embrace open homosexuality, the moral evil of Death Panels, no matter how benignly created by Government. He is void, and to be pitied as much as soundly rejected for presenting such a void for evil.

As a Repubilcan, as a "conservative," as he would be called regardless, Romney supposedly would represent me, and you, and much of American goodness. We would be the ones to have voted for him. Romney's hand put pen to paper and signed, consciously, legislation to make on-demand abortion cost less, via government subsidy, than a minor cosmetic procedure. His fingers that grasped and moved the pen that condoned and promoted celebration and declaration of open homosexuality among school kids via "Gay Youth Pride." There was a conscious mind and brain that made that hand sign that piece of paper.

Could you, NavyCanDo, or YOU, any reader, move your hand such if the paper was placed in front of you?

Romney is outside of pitiful. Romney is focused, quiet, sweet, even. To all the world, as President, he would define "Repubican" and for many more, "conservative." It is why certainly the next Democrat president to follow would make Obama look like Eisenhower.

Evil begets evil. Vote for Romney with your eyes wide open and answer to God for it.

People would vote for Romney out of 100 percent fear.

If Romney chooses Gov. Martinez, the ticket wouldn’t be well-balanced, in terms of political experience, since both of them have been governors. If Romney wants to choose a Hispanic, he should choose Sen. Marco Rubio.

No, I am not familiar with judges appointed by Mitt Romney. I have never lived east of Chicago. May be you can list a few of those judges and I can do research on them.

However the point remains...I am deathly afraid of future Obama appointees. Because I have seen his federal apppointees in action. Obama never worked in private sector, but Romney spent practically his whole life in private sector. I have spent 25 years in private sector including executive positions & 12 years in government, and I can recognize the two types of people a mile away. There is no way Romney and Obama think alike in fiscal matters. I have never met an executive in 25 years in private sector who thinks like Obama.

Everyone has to ask themselves what if they wake up November 3rd and find out that the candidate they voted for won the election in their state by one vote, and their state’s electoral votes decided the election. Are you going to feel comfortable knowing the man in the White House for the next 4 years was put there by you?

Or ask yourself if God came down and granted you the power to appoint the next President singlehandedly. That the election’s outcome would be preordained by your pick. Would you pick Obama or, if he’s the nominee, Romney?

This is the first election where I’m genuinely one of those undecided voters I typically malign as being pea-brained ignoramuses. I honestly don’t know yet whether the likely gridlocked radical communist Obama would be better or worse for the country overall than the likely empowered progressive socialist Romney. This election will define the lesser of two evils like it’s never been defined before.

I reject the premise of your statement, what you have presented is a “foreseeable” supposition regarding Romney. What we have regarding Obama is a concurrent reality thus we cannot base failing to cease and desist the ongoing destruction of our constitutional republic on an assumed probability of “foreseeable” destruction down the road by another (i.e. Romney).

That's the biggest long-term, existential threat presented by Romney. How do you ever get the party back to the conservative values espoused by the Reagan revolution after electing Romney? At a bare minimum it would take 8 years, only if he fails and then a Democrat is elected to replace him who also fails, and then we manage to nominate a conservative. If Romney succeeds in his first term, then conservatives are in even worse shape. We'll be up to waiting 12 years for a conservative if he fails in his second term, or who knows how many years if his undoubtedly fellow liberal V.P. wins election after him. The Republican party could be changed forever, with conservatives officially sidelined as a bunch of "unelectable" sideshow characters. I don't think there's a chance in Hades that Romney nominates any kind of full-blooded conservative as his V.P., i.e. someone like Cheney, Gingrich, Palin, West. I guess that depends if you think Rubio is a real conservative. I don't, and he remains the most likely Romney nominee, followed by Christie. Never in a million years would he nominate a woman as his V.P. Someone as power hungry as him would not be willing to share power with a woman.

Conservatives don't vote for liberal Republicans either. Romney, as a false friend, is actually much more of a long-term threat to conservatives than Obama. With Obama in power, our side remains unified and builds strength. With Romney in office, conservatives have no power at all. NONE. And Romney will use his position to fracture us even further. That's what he did in MA.
