I’m all for Newt when my turn finally comes to vote in June, but this illustrates the disorganization of his campaign that allowed RINO Romney to railroad him.

You really need to get a grip... and stop posting your Newt Hate around. Santorum QUIT - so did the others. Too bad they don’t have the fortitude, courage and sheer guts Newt does, but badmouthing Gingrich wont’ make cowardly people brave..
BTW, Sheldon Adelson’s wife gave over 5 mil to Newt’s campaign, late last month, and Winning our Future, now has 5.8 mil on hand.
SO... either get your facts straight, stop posting lies about Newt, or get over it.

Why don’t you just go support Romney - who even knows whether you did from the start?

Uh, this is a typical Romney trick. He did it before in Nevada: call a LOCAL news outlet, give them what they think is a scoop, then a national outlet picks it up and reports on it. Until finally someone gets around to contacting the campaign... ABC news and "people close to the Gingrich campaign". How can you blame Newt for the reptilian media and romney campaign working in concert?

GOT PHONE?

Make calls for Newt in DE this weekend:

What Gingrich says, does, thinks, where he appears, what he plans are all irrelevant. After his clobbering in Florida he should have quit. It was evident that he had baggage that would sink a fleet of cruise liners and a gender gap that would be oceans apart. His permanent moon-based colonies within eight years and $2.50 gas/gallon in two years was an agenda laced with kood-aid. Santorum was the obvious choice with 11 state wins, a super one day trifecta, and all on a shoe string budget. He came within a whisker of 3% of beating Romney in MI and within less than 1% in OH. Had Gingrich withdrawn, Santorum would have beaten Romney and we’d be on a different trajectory today. Now that Romney is the presumptive nominee, the realistic view is to mitigate the damage and make sure that Romney hews to the conservative agenda should he be the nominee. This is what Mark levin and Rush hope for as well. Indeed, Gingrich himself has said that Romney will be the “likely nominee” and he will enthusiastically support the party nominee. Forget Gingrich. If we are to take stock of the real world he’s now utterly irrelevant. The only question is to make sure we have a strong VP. This is now the talk of the town, not Gingrich.

Who gives a frack what the “town” is talking about? The ONLY way to get someone decent in the White House now is to make Gingrich surge in the next 19 states so that Romney doesn’t get 1,144 delegates and it goes to a convention vote. Even Romney knows there’s a good chance this will happen since he was begging RNC super delegates to sign “loyalty pledges” on Friday that would cover MULTIPLE ballots at the convention. In a floor fight, even your beloved Saintorum has another chance to get on the ticket.

For crying out, some of these Santorum folk have venom and idiocy running through their veins. Until he ran in those Beauty contents he was dead in the races, and then he dropped out before he was about to lose his home state. Sheeesh. Talk about clearing the slate for Romney. His precious Bella was also hospitalized during FL.

Heeeeeeelp:
Can anyone tell me where to go to determine which delegates I need to vote for to benefit Gingrich (ditch Romney) in the Pennsylvania primary, Congressional District 13?

Since PA is not winner take all, and the popular vote is mostly just show, I may not be undisenfranchised.

OK! Let's say Romney does NOT get to 1,144. How do we here HELP Newt bring down that GOPe good old boys club? What can we do that doesn't involve traveling to Tampa to give Romney and the GOPe the middle finger salute?

Here's a list I've started of how to support Newt.

1: Donate to Newt's Campaign.

2: Talk to as many republicans as you can about the DISASTER the GOPe has become and how NEWT can change the direction of the country.

3: If you claim to be a conservative, uphold some principle and stop voting for these rino clowns. The "Lessor Of Two Evils" excuse just is not valid anymore! things have changed!

We have around 15,000 calls that need to be made to Delaware before Tuesday’s primary. If we can get Champions for Newt who will make as many calls as they can between Friday and Monday, or Tuesday, we can do it!

As much as the political and media establishment would like to declare this race over and coronate Mitt Romney as our inevitable nominee, it just isn’t the case.

We’ve had great crowds with lots of enthusiasm, and a number of key elected officials have endorsed our campaign in recent days. We truly believe that we have a real opportunity to win there, but we need your help.

This campaign couldn’t have survived through the various ups and downs without the passionate support of people like you. And now it’s time to put that passion to work again.

We just launched a new “phone from home” system at phone.newt.org and there’s plenty of households in Delaware that could use a call from you.

We’re trying to make as many calls as we can into Delaware over the next few days to identify Newt supporters, to persuade undecided voters, and turn them out to the polls on Tuesday.

Our new system is very easy to use and your help over the next few days is absolutely vital.

So please take a moment today to visit phone.newt.org and make as many phone calls as you can.

With your help, we can turn the conventional wisdom on its head, and force the political and media establishment to acknowledge that this race is not over.

GOT PHONE? Make calls into DE this weekend for Newt:

Can’t argue with that! I just wish Newt would actually admit where he REALLY stands on AGW - he has expressed remorse for his “couch time” with Pelozi, yet has SINCE THAT supposed remorse/repentance, further written and spoken as a believer in AGW. I fear he is playing both sides of the coin (imagine that - a politician playing both teams for votes).

But it really is unacceptable for him to in ANY WAY continue to promote the fraud that is AGW.

Newt isn’t perfect, however, he has a demonstrated record of conservative politics. He also has some goofs and bouts with liberal ideas such as GW that we can steer, educate or correct. Romney and Obama are birds of a feather. In fact, Romney has even said he is not a Republican or conservative, he simply registered Republican to get elected.

Bizarre didn't like the news yesterday. Must be moles or what not. I hope Newt knows who is in his campaign staff. Either way, I supported Newt during the great debates which amazingly were shut down when he did so well.........

Win or lose can you imagine a Newt speech at the RNC in Tampa? That will be the best speech of OUR lifetime!!!

I have been critical about his wife's luxuries, but Newt KNOWS the issues, has the ability to address the issues! And can produce results!!!

That is the problem with Romney. He's so damn bland it's sad, one of the debates it looked like he was a normal person but Barry is so damn slick.

I'm going to have to post the story on my profile page because everyone asks about it but I met Zero in 2005 at a GWB private event. Spoke to him for 10 minutes, got his auto, and I told him to his face I did not vote for him for Senate (he won with 70%+ of the vote) he gave me same hope and change garbage that sold the lemmings in 08.

Back when I met zero I called my mom (she passed in 08 before zero won) and told her I met the next president and he is pure evil. I have the ticket and auto as proof hehe!

Thanks Steelfish for your “dose of reality” to the Newt dreamers.

Time of all of us to get up off our mother’s couches and get to work on damage control.

And you didn’t mention WI..but let’s all remember that Rick was AHEAD in the primary here..until Big Brother RNC stepped in and plopped Ryan and Mittens in a sandwich shop for an SNL “sub-gate”, causing gullible voters of my state to change their minds and cancel out Rick’s game changing potential victory.

It was Newt who cleared the slate for Romney, Onyx, by gleaning votes from Santorum. And I don’t know what you mean about Bella but it sounds like that was some sort of derogatory comment, which I pray it is not, as that would be a low blow.

Santorum dropped out for lack of funds and because he was sabotaged by the RNC, who chose Mittens as their heir apparent long ago. Newt will drop out for the same reason as Rick. When the funds dry up, it’s over. Adelson kept Newt going longer than he would have.

Romney’s PACs raised millions and millions over seven years and he will likely be the nominee because he outspent and attacked his opponents without restraint.

Santorum gave him a run for his money and should be very proud of himself. His grassroots, low budget campaign, of which I was proudly a part, caused Romney and his minions to waste alot of time, money and effort..which is a good thing!

“Newt isn’t perfect”

Newt has such a panoply of imperfections, flaws and betrayals, you can’t dismiss them with a simple pre-emptive admission like this. It’s the political equivalent of saying “Jeff Dahmer isn’t perfect, but.....some of his recipes are delicious!”

Newt never had any business running for President. Period.
