Posted on 04/25/2012 6:01:44 PM PDT by NoLibZone
Texas Gov. Rick Perry originally endorsed Newt Gingrich as the top candidate after dropping out of the Republican presidential race.
But with Gingrich set to quit the campaign trail, Perry on Wednesday evening gave his support to the probable nominee, Mitt Romney.
"Mitt Romney has earned the Republican presidential nomination through hard work, a strong organization, and [a] disciplined message of restoring America after nearly four years of failed job-killing policies from President [Barack] Obama and his administration," Perry said in a statement provided to FOX News Channel.
"So today I join the many conservative Republicans across the nation in endorsing Mitt Romney for president and pledge to him, my constituents and the Republican Party that I will continue to work hard to help defeat President Obama.

What does anyone expect from an Al Gore Democrat turned Giuliani Republican? Of course he would become a Romney Republican. No other outcome was likely.
And they put awful to defeat awful? LOL! Dream on.
I wouldn't touch that pos, let the suckers who supported mitt the maggot continue to taint themselves.
Evil will do ANYTHING to bring us down to their level. It will get the weak kneed but NEVER us.
Did you hear Newt say he dropped out or did you read it?
Throw your little fits (again). Lets hear all about your objections (again); go ahead and subject the forum to your irrationality, (again). But keep this in mind, you deserve whatever hell is coming. The thing is, you are dragging the rest of the reasonable, thinking people along with you.
Due to the absolute irrationality and unreasonable demands of perfection, we now have Romney. Thank you. I'm sure you are quite representative of the stiff necked, thick skulled people that scream they're conservative, until a true conservative runs then it's time to bring out faults from 20 years ago. Contempt doesn't even begin to describe what you deserve. But you should be satisified because now we are stuck with Romney but at least it's not that RINO Gov Perry. Thank God for that huh?
Gov Perry is putting differences aside, he will do what is right for the country and will support the nominee. He probably doesn't like it in this case, but he loves this country more and realizes that Barack Hussein Obama is the true enemy of this country and of her people.
Personally, Romney makes my skin crawl but I will vote. Unfortunately, if Free Republic is any indication, many will 'sit' out or vote 3rd party.
Pity really, that those of you who pulled that stunt in 2008, are going to do it again. McCain part deux. And McCain was actually a stronger candidate than this thing that has bought his 'turn' in the procession. Expect the same results, only this time, it will finally slay the United States of America, that once great nation which will be a footnote in history. The commies thank you all.
But you stand tall! After all you have a point to make (again).
I am guessing e.
Could someone please explain to me this term "GOPe?" Thanks. I must have been sleeping when they previously defined it.
Perry will always be a Patriot in my eyes. The Bushes are the elite and hate conservatism. So it’s a good sign for Perry that he isn’t in their fun club. Papa Bush is NWO from the get go.

It doesn’t matter how many endorsements Mitt the Maggot gets - he still willbe MINUS many votes. We’ll let you drag your dog across the finish line so Obama can make mince maggot meat for his dogs.
I agree, and I see the ridiculous unwarranted attacks on him continue.
Yes, I noticed that too. They are a strange little cult, those Perry bashers.
Perry didn’t set the primary back...the democrats in the state government did because they didn’t like the redistricting borders and voter ID laws so they blocked it and pushed our primary back to where it is beyond hope to change things now.
I am SO angry at them. Governor Perry did his best for the
voters and the DUM-o-crats were the dirty birds!
Zot the troll! :)
WRONG!! They voted for SARAH PALIN. You heard this many times but it still didn't seem to register with you. And McCain wasn't the pro homo baby killing maggot that mitt is.
Get this - the POS maggot Mitt will NEVER get my vote and it is not a STUNT.
IT IS MITT who PULLED THE STUNT ON AMERICA. A pro homo, baby killing, socialistic healthcare, liberal appointing judges, anti-gun candidate, KNOWN LIAR on a GOP TICKET. Get your facts right on who pulls STUNTS.
Save your pity, really, you will need it when mitt's stunt meets barry's stunt.
I know it. Those damn democrats and their redistricting.
Texas deserved to have a big say! Voters were robbed on a grand scale.
Y’all were scheduled for a nationally televised debate, too!
It was the Feds and democrats in the state government.
Mostly the Feds.
Bravo! Well said! Thank you for putting into words how I feel! :)
The same people will call Newt a communist then. To put it bluntly, I can’t stand Romney, but I will vote for him to get Obama and his administration out. Those that don’t go vote against Obama are contributing to the demise of our nation. They may be self-described conservatives, but they are not PATRIOTS. Not voting will not send anyone a message, as some believe, but Obama will have plenty of messages if he is re-elected, and they won’t be good. And Holder will stay...And Zero will appoint more judges and czars..
Ah a little man speaks!! Weasels are so easily spotted.
“Horseshit....in the end, you must support whoever is running against Soros and the DNC.
This “I’m staying at home” bull is beyond stupid.”
“We’ve got a very, very old Ruth Bader Ginsburg, for crying out loud.”
The Feds aided and abetted the state Dims. I’m sure it wasn’t MEANT to be that way! /sarc
Well put, my FRiend. I’m thinking now, put everything behind us except getting Obama OUT.
Bowing to your masters and voting for their choice is patriotic?
“Mitt IS the Republican nominee. Unless you want four more years of Obama, its time to rally round our Mormon???”
“Not gonna be easy for most around here.”
It will be EASY for me. I refuse to sit home feeling sorry for myself and having hissy fit that MY candidate of choice didn't win. I WILL NOT ALLOW THE MARXIST ANOTHER FOUR YEARS TO FINISH DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY!
Houghton M got little man syndrome.
Do you know if this article confirmed. Seems like this past week’s articles about Newt - every day hearing about him dropping out and last night on TV he spoke about mitt’s arrogance and mentioned his 21 campaign visits he has planned for the next week.
We were and I was looking forward to Newt eviscerating the Myth!
Now we’re stuck with o-lite. *sigh*
I haven’t heard anyone say they were staying home. They are voting for the most conservative people they can on the rest of the ticket.
Sounds like a plan! He is sounding better all the time! :)
I need to read more about him before making my final decision, though.
I reckon this means Perry is a squishy RINO endorser too?
This whole Romney thing reminds me of a joke from my youth....Heaven >> Lots of clouds with people having fun, laughing, joking and carrying on, having a joyous time. Someone looks over at a cloud where the people are silent and somber. “What’s the matter with those people?” he asks. “Oh, those are the Church of Christ people. They think they are the only ones here.”
I was a C of C person. I didn’t understand it then. I do now.
Your entire post is exactly correct.
Lots of people rage at the GOP establishment, individual politicians, etc, etc, and then hold the Founders up as the paragons of perfection. The truth is our system IS a two party system since it does not allow for coalition building. 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc, party's can't work here under our system. Why don't people ever rage at the founders and try talk about changing the Constitution? So many folks here want to start up a new party (as people declare every election cycle), only to see the idea predictably crash and burn. So why do so few people actually point out the very flaws in the system that prevent these new party's from having any chance of success?
A two party system like ours means it will be only once or maybe twice in a life time that any of us ever gets to vote for someone we are truly excited about in a national general election. That is just how it works. The system is geared to be as much about defeating the opposition as it is about electing our own candidates. Our only real opportunity to shape these elections is within the primary of one of the 2 major party's. It sucks, but there is simply no way around it.
You are absolutely correct with that post. Perry would have made the best president of all the candidates .
Newt has already said he would endorse Romney if he were the candidate. Last I heard today, Newt bows out next week. He has talked to Romney today or yesterday, forget which.
And, pray tell, what kind of a future does this party have that believes in nothing and everything? Or does everyone live just for "the party" whatever it is?
I remember many here on FR joining Politico and other leftist rags as they systematically destroyed our candidates. And now we wonder why Romney is the candidate.
I'm not thrilled with Romney, but I WILL vote for him! I refuse to give a known Marxist four more years to complete his destruction of our country! Not voting or voting third party is beyond stupid. Please join the rest of us in reality and support the GOP nominee. Whatever Romney is, he DOESN'T HATE THE COUNTRY!
He is the Teaparty guy, but I wont cry if Dewhurst wins.
That one will be fun. But the one I’m really waiting for is when Palin endorses Romney. It’s going to be fun watching heads explode.
That's simply emotion. It has no bearing on his record. Romney is a socialist. His record is as liberal as Obama. Actually Romney passed Cap & Trade in Mass and Obama couldn't. It makes no difference what emotion drives them. They govern the same and Romney often agrees with Obama. That alone should scare people.
The only alternative is CWII. If you are ready for that, mount up and ride, if not, yes, the patriotic thing to do is get rid of Obama. It’s not just him, remember, it’s his entire administration. There will be 2 people with a chance to win the presidency, and from what I see, it will be Mitt and Zero. Voting for Mitt may very well be “bowing to your masters” but not voting will be bowing to the enemy.
He is a LIAR on every major issue that is important to conservatives!
“The system is geared to be as much about defeating the opposition as it is about electing our own candidates”
That is the key to what the Founders were thinking. They saw this as the protector of Liberty.
“A two party system like ours means it will be only once or maybe twice in a life time that any of us ever gets to vote for someone we are truly excited about in a national general election.”
Kind of reminds me of the late 19th century. A time of great economic growth. A time when Washington DC was not all that important to people’s lives. Another time like this might be needed right now.
“Yall were scheduled for a nationally televised debate, too!”
Romney never agreed to come to the debate. And, Santorum dropping out stopped the push for winner take all.
County or Senate District conventions were held over Texas in the last several days, and delegates to the state convention were chosen before the primary. The primary is May 29, just days before the state convention.
Texas House/Senate Democrats that caused this need to be labeled zombies and you know what happens to zombies when zombie hunters go after them - I mean they don’t get elected next time - sure, that’s what I mean.
The Founders had King George on one hand and the choice of how to govern America on the other. They did not choose a benevolent monarchy. You don't replace one evil with another.
We are sliding into socialism and Romney will not stop the slide. Based on his record as Governor, he will help push it.
