RICHARDSON (CBSDFW) Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich says hes not leaving the Presidential race anytime soon. Im the tortoise in this race, Gingrich says. Ill just keep coming forward and Im still here.
Before 75 supporters in a packed Richardson restaurant along Central Expressway Monday afternoon, Gingrich sounded upbeat.
He told the town hall meeting, I certainly felt a lot more encouraged by donors than discouraged by the elite media. But hes facing an uphill climb.

“It’s just a scratch!”
"It's just a flesh wound. "
We need Newt to gain Santorum’s endorsement and turn the GOP Convention upside down.
It’s not happening, even in Texas.
Cain,Nugent, Boehner and the lot are pitchin for Mitt
Sorry for the dupe.
Mifi, Ipad and hotel room.
Nothing to be lost and everything to gain by simply staying around and not dropping out.
By the time we reach the convention, it’s going to be apparent that the voter base has such a schism that there’s no way to get Mitt through the primary. For every die hard supporter he has, he has an enemy. There’s not going to be any coming together “in the end.”
Not this time.
The convention can either broker someone else we can all support (And I’m not saying Newt will be it) but if they don’t, we can’t win. This party is shattered. Broken. And it’s not going to fix itself this time.
Aside from Ann Coulter and Ann Romney, does Mittens actually have any "die hard supporters"?
Most of the "endorsements" I'm seeing are the, "Okay, (shrug) Romney, I guess," variety.
President Harry S. Truman once aluded that there wasn’t much difference between a piano player in a whore house and a politician.
Cain, Nugent, Boehner and the lot are pitchin’ for Mitt because of the relentless propaganda drumbeat that Romney is inevitable, all bought by Romney’s money.
Well, he isn’t inevitable.
The 11th Commandment of Ronald Reagan was to speak nothing negative about fellow Republicans. Romney has run his race exactly opposite of that, because he has NO positive conservative record in his past. He governed Massachusetts as a progressive, a socialist!
The states where he has won the majority of delegates have been almost uniformily Blue states, which he will not win in a national election come November.
So, if conservatives don’t get their butts in gear and change the tragectory of this nomination, we will have a choice between Romney the fascist and Obama the communist. That is not a choice. Both men believe government is God, which is evil.
“We need Newt to gain Santorums endorsement and turn the GOP Convention upside down.”
The idling political powerhouse up in Alaska wouldn’t hurt either.
Yes, Newt needs to stay in in order to recoop the money he has sunk into his campaign. He has until the convention to get himself whole. Newt also needs his supporters to still believe he has a chance, so they continue forking over the cash. Plus Callista is on a book tour for her new children’s book she wrote. The campaign is paying for it. The campaign has hired a guy to dress in an elephant suit for the appearances. Callista must also fly on private jets. No commercial for her.The Campaign is paying for this also. After you donate you get to be on his donors list, which Newt is currently selling as we speak. Pretty good deal, after you donate you get a free cruise from the Timeshare people. As PT Barnum once said.
Cain is supporting Team Romney that destroyed him?
If so, Cain is so stupid as to be henceforth
Hang in there, Newt. I’ll vote for ya’.
CA Primary, 5 JUN
Exactly. Freepers are having a hard time coming to terms with it, though.
If little Ricky is the great conservative that he claims to be, he would throw his support to Newt. We will see.
Little Ricky, and you wonder why he doesn’t fall into line for you. Santorums people will divide about equally for Romney early on and then collapse into the RINO machine.
Those that continually ridiculed the Senator can then take the bow that they have earned.
