Newt to Suspend Campaign on May 1st. (Larry Welsh, TX Grassroots Director, Newt 2012).
Vanity | April 25, 2012 | True Believer Forever

Posted on 04/25/2012 8:44:31 PM PDT by true believer forever

By now you have assuredly read, either from our team here in Texas or in the media, Newt will be suspending his presidential campaign effective May 1st. While we are all certainly disheartened by the news that our preferred candidate will no longer be vying for the Republican Nomination, we can be proud of the all the efforts put forth by this wonderful team we built together in Texas.

I would like to specifically thank some of you who went above and beyond in their efforts both to assist me and Newt. First, to Sondra Zeigler who travelled around various parts of the country, coordinated deployment and phone banking efforts and somehow found time to coordinate volunteer efforts in Lubbock. To Tammy Banks, who helped me so much in reaching out to volunteers throughout our great state and joined me at CTxPAC and staffed our booth. To Mike Pine, whose advice was invaluable and for keeping tabs on the fundraising intricacies. To Katrina Pearson, for all her efforts to assist us in our outreach to Tea Parties and putting together one of Newt's last visits to Texas. To Ed Wheeler and Gary Walters who did such a magnificent job in the phone bank and consitently kept Texaas at or near the top in those efforts. And, last but certainly not least, to Whitney Neal who never said "no" to any task or assignment that I asked of her, for reminding me not to forget whatever I was forgetting that day, for inspiration and generally being awesome.

Meeting and working with so many of you has been a pleasure and won't soon be forgotten. I look forward to seeing and speaking to many of you soon. I leave you with this quote:

"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."

-Nelson Mandela

Sincerely,

Larry Welsh Texas Grassroots Director - Newt 2012

Politics is an ugly, bloody and muddy business, I have come to learn. Anyone who supported Newt, truly and against all odds, can be proud. Newt said to a very upset supporter in NC today, Sometimes the mountain is bigger than your ability to climb it.

Newt Gingrich is true patriot, who will serve his country in whichever way he can, and in a way only he can.

I am so proud to have been part of this man's abiding effort, and will do whatever he asks going forth.

He never let us down. For me, that means a great great deal.

And because this is the TX Newt Director speaking out, rest assured Governor Perry sought out Newt before endorsing Romney, and would have honored Newt's wishes regarding the timing and endorsement of Romney.

To those who left Newt on the battlefield, when they could have come to his rescue as the Last Conservative Standing, and the list goes on for miles, may God be evident in the coming days.

I know strong individuals who have been crying for hours. I am not a crier, I am a fighter. We will fight again.

More time now for planning that moon base. I have to think that Ron Paul is the only chance for a conservative victory now. Newt gave it the old college try, but that was the problem, the old college.

What a sick freak. He is even worse than I thought.
Closing his campaign on a communist holiday as some kind of sick tribute. He should be deported to Cuba or some other communist, “paradise.” I wish Allen West would challenge him to a fight, and kick his communist-loving ass.

You know, there were some very very ardent Santorum supporters in this forum, and I often went head to head with them, and we mixed it up bigtime. But when Santorum dropped out, I took the time to write a few of them a messae of encouragement, that better days were coming, and that we are all bonded by our love for America.

That's the difference between classy people, and human crud. That's the difference between Ron Paul and his bots, and Newt Gingrich and his supporters.

In other words, light years.

God’s speed Newt. He would have been a great president. But, he couldn’t persuade the primary voters.

Looks like America will muddle through until we get a real leader up in 2016.

Indeed, Newt would have been a very effective president. Now it looks like Mittens will get the 1144. I am forced to work against Obama who has been a revolting president.

Obama is lazy, narcissistic, socialist, big government promoter, clueless on how to grow economy, apologizer in chief, wastes time playing golf (100 rounds so far) when country is facing serious problems, Solyndra, Arizona immigration, Fast & Furious, against Keystone & domestic energy production, anti-Israel, pro-Muslim, America divider, and wastes tax payer money by endless vacations on Air Force One and weekly parties at the White House.

So will Newt be campaigning hard for Presidency for the last few remaining days left? Those speeches ought to be interesting to hear. “I’m here asking for your vote for President and your donations to carry my message forward to Tampa!” Then a little further in the speech, “Oh yeah, I will be dropping out next week Tuesday”. I mean, if your going to quit, just quit. What exactly is the point of waiting another week?

Listen to me, I am in Florida I have met and talked to Allen West many times. I worked my heart out for his campaign, when noone but the milis knew who he was. He wouldn't have anything to do with a piece of human slime like you, and I am quite sure he would be upset to know you invoked his name in one of your freakish rants. He and Newt know and like each other very much...

After Perry, Newt was our fall back position guy.

Newt Gingrich DEFINATELY is true patriot, a smart patriot and America would do well with Newt's hand on the tiller.

Newt did let us down, by not living his life in a way to show respect for the high position he sought. Most conservatives are moral people who did not accept well Newt's personal life. Last kick, during the campaigning, they would have done better by softening dear Callista’s stark appearance from that of a plastic trophy wife. Although when she did talk to us, she showed that appearances are not always true to ones self.

Now, will Newt still try again at the convention or has he turned like many of his dropout predecessors panhandling to Mitt?

He is "honoring" the campaign commitments he made to the people of NC. He is determined to keep everyone, as many were invites, and others involved school children and college students. In other words, just because he has made a difficult decision, he isn't going to blow off the people he made commitments and promises to, like the other candidates did when they dropped out. HONOR.

I have know idea what your rant about Santorum has to do with anything. Normally people close down their campaign, they do it the day they announce. If you already know you are shutting down, what sense does it make to prolong things, unless there is some kind of tribute. Please, it's not some random thing. Communism killed 100s of millions of people. If President Obama did something like this, he would rightly be pilloried by Freepers. The same should apply to Gingrich.

Interesting, you try to imply that Gingrich supporters are classy, and you call me foul names.

I don't care what names you call me, I will not whitewash it. COMMUNISM IS EVIL.

The evangelicals, especially the Southern ones, who believe as you do, left Newt in the wilderness for years because of his sins. He finally found his way to the Catholic Church, where he was introduced to the love of Christ, His transforming power, and the Faith in the Cross, that relies on the work of God's son to take care of our sins. The Catholics, of which Rich is one, have about 50% abandoned Santorum, because of the way he abrogated the work of Christ, and instead set himself up as some holier than thou, capable of judgling people's FORIVEN past, much the same as you... I wrote about it - and I couldn't believe how many agreed with what I wrote, and really repented of judging Newt so harshly and following Santorum's sanctimony...

"On Santorum: No, I’ve never met him. I’ve read about him, some of the corruption he is associated with, I’ve watched him, I’ve listened when he was disrespectful to his mentor for political expediency’s sake. I study his voting record. I know a charity of his gathered millions of dollars, and only spent 32% of their funds on the poor, for whose benefit the charity was formed; and that the normative ethical ratio is for most charities to spend 82% of their funds on their targeted constituency - while most of Santorum’s donations went to give his political friends cushy “charity” jobs. Good Neighbor, I think it was called.

I listened as this so-called “good” Christian man stood on a stage and said his character was the quality of character that Americans needed in the White House, unlike the character of others who had personal baggage in their past, without once mentioning the forgiving saving transforming power of Jesus Christ, who is the center of the faith Sanctimonium so piously professes to live by... and sets his principles upon...

If you are not a Christian, you can’t really appreciate what is so appalling and galling about the man, in light of true christians, who don’t abrogate the work of Christ with attempts at self righteousness attained by their outside of the cup persona and behaviors..

What you are doing, and why so many sincere Christians have great problems with Santorum, is he, as well as you, overlook how the transformative power an encounter with the True Christ impacts a man’s entire soul and being; he becomes a new creature in Christ Jesus, old things pass away, all things are made new.

Newt has confessed his sins, said he did things he is ashamed of, has sought to make reconciliation with the members of his family, and others he has hurt. He has blamed no one else but himself. He has come to a new and apparently cleansing faith in Christ Jesus and, most importantly, there is no evidence of any of the same behavioral sins in his life since this long journey of his repentance, rebirth, and renewal began.

And, yet, people cannot let the man leave his past behind. After 20 years - think of it - 20 years - there are still a majority of people in the press, politics - Santorum, and a lot of his supporters - who consider Newt the same man he was 20 years ago, and dare he try to take one step away from his past, to step into the new, as his faith promises him he can, they are there loudly, hypocritically, self-righteously to pull him right back. They won’t let him step away from his sinful past, though no apparent evidence of that sinful past exists any longer, or any evidence that he is the same man he was 20 years ago. He is being judged as the man he was - while that man no longer exists. He is, I repeat, a new creature in Christ Jesus.

Finally, Christians, who truly fully embrace and receive the saving work of Christ, who are transformed deeply, understand that Newt could have done all those things back then, even worse, and still today be a new creature in Christ Jesus - but no one, not Santorum, nor his minions, will allow for that, or accept that might ever be true.

So, the final finally: it says more about the people who can’t let Newt be this new creature many believing Christians trust he is, if only because they are likewise sinners, great sinners, saved and transformed by the same power that Newt claims has saved and transformed him.

It is religious bigotry, hard hearts, and people like Santorum, who behaviorally have hit many of the right notes in their outward lives, though it is hard to believe that is extensively true - I am sure we will find out - whose self-righteousness - whose pride in their outward manifestations of sinlessness, and acceptable conduct, that causes believing Christians to distance themselves from him, to see him as a hypocrite, saved more by his self-perceived good works than the miraculous, healing work of a Perfect Savior, by his love and tender mercy, towards those who are fully unworthy.

Santorum is about none of that, he is about a gospel of works and self denial, of earned salvation. Newt is simply a sinner being saved by by the gift of grace, he could never earn or be worthy of... through no goodness of his own... the same as most of those Christians who can’t support Santorum’s apostasy."

Forgiveness2

It’s a shame that Gingrich didn’t get honest treatment or enough primary votes, but it’s no surprise.

Both political parties are competing for the voters who are dependent on government for their incomes and for preventions against any new private sector competition (anti-family, anti-rights policies).

Those same voters are morally bankrupt, as their rackets will also be bankrupt soon. Cut personal spending while encouraging the political/regulator class to spend more. Starve the B. Send her to repudiation and currency adjustment.

Then you’ll see small government. And printing dollars into worthlessness wouldn’t save her evil, socialist empire, because worthless is worthless. Do some real work. Become more self-sufficient. Reject political correctness.

If you supported Newt, or worked for him, now is not the time to think about having to support Romney. Now is time to relax a little, reflect, and, if your heart is hurting, like mine is, give it time to heal. And it will. And the day will come when you're ready to fight again. It isn't over, it is just going to be different. God Bless.

You said both parties are competing for the same voters, I don't even think there are 2 parties, just a blurry mess, with some distinctions and differences. They are all motivated by their need for power and to control it.

My heart just breaks over this news about Newt.

I just feel I’m out in limbo somewhere. I don’t even want to read or care about politics anymore.

I am more and more convinced this country is just lost and there’s really no turning back.

But I can’t convince anyone around me. Not my husband even, or my family.

What’s it going to take to convince everyone of their foolishness and blindness?

I’ve always admired Gingrich, since the 90’s and always will. WE will never see another politician like him again ...and as a country, we will have just WASTED this man’s brilliance once again.

I just really have no more words to express my disgust.

I don't know if this is really the best time to think about that now... there is time for a little breather before that sort of grappling. If you know anyone in the active military, close enough to you to talk honestly with you, ask them what they think of Obama, and what they think he will accomplish in the next 4 years if he is re-elected. And how exactly do they feel about that?

That is my springboard for supporting Romney. Too many young military at risk if Obama gets enamored again of the notion he can change the world...

"I don't even think there are 2 parties, just a blurry mess, with some distinctions and differences."

Well, yes to some differences, somewhat. Republicans work more for the local commies, who regulate against, threaten and rob what's left of the real private sector in the local levels. But they do love that federal funding for the police state and their local supporting, pensioned, anti-property-rights NIMBYs.

God’s speed Newt. He would have been a great president. But, he couldn’t persuade the primary voters.

Looks like America will muddle through until we get a real leader up in 2016.

Six weeks ago, I started thinking about how conservatives can respond IF romney is elected... and started talking to people a little, and the consensus was this whole debacle could possibly be the best wake-up call the conservative republicans have ever gotten.

In January, we can begin the framework of a movement to primary Romney, which may or may not have an effect on the way he governs. And the need to decide on ONE candidate out the gate will be essential... I doubt Newt would run again but he sure would like to be involved doing what he does best, teaching and inspiring a whole new generation of young conservatives...

So here’s the big question: Now that Newt’s out, and therefore won’t be going to the convention, what happens to the “Anyone-but-Romney” crowd? The leader of this board has emphatically stated that he will under no circumstances support Romney, and many here agree with him. Now that Romney is all that’s left between the country and another four (or more) years of The Won, does that now mean Free Republic will be supporting Obama (as the only one left other than Romney)?

More seriously, do we just look to the down-ballot nominees and hope for the best? Do we stay home? Hold our noses and vote Romney anyway? Write in Sarah Palin (knowing no one in the “establishment” will care)? Vote Ron Paul?

I’ve even heard/read that some here will actually vote for Obama on the premise that the disaster he will wreak will create fertile ground for a truly conservative candidate in 2016, or that America needs to finally learn the lesson that the current breed of Democrats are not fit to lead the country.

I’m not trying to be flippant. I seriously want to know what will happen, now that the race is down to the disastrous incumbent and the candidate this site has sworn never to vote for.

If there is any symbolism in the May 1st suspension of his campaign, it may have to do with the Current pResident.

I have always thought that Newt has a very subtle sense of humor.

Actually the military stays very on top of all STDs, and just about any member of any unit can tell you what their STD percentage rate is... it is that ongoing and participatory.

If Obama decides he wants to use the US Military as his personal building block set, sending young Americans around the world to help reshape the Middle East, it is going to be beyond belief in terms of suffering, sacrifice, stupidity, and chaos.

I donot believe Romney hates the military, like Obama does. I have searched this out and will continue to... for that reason alone I will work to defeat Obama...including voting for Mitt if that doesn't change... Of course, I am a newt supporter, and still believe the outcome is not set in stone yet...

No one in Romney's family tree has ever served.

Well, yes to some differences, somewhat. Republicans work more for the local commies, who regulate against, threaten and rob what's left of the real private sector in the local levels. But they do love that federal funding for the police state and their local supporting, pensioned, anti-property-rights NIMBYs.

You gotta really do this kindergarten style, if you would, because I have no idea what you are talking about. I am sure it's my fault, I am just obtuse tonight... :)

I could see myself voting for Gingrich; though in all honesty he was my last resort candidate. He still would have had my vote. I'm looking into the Constitution Party candidate. So far I *really* like what I see. Virgil Goode looks like a good recipient for my vote. With Romney the republicans have officially flipped the bird to the conservatives and I am offended.

What’s it going to take to convince everyone of their foolishness and blindness?

The next four years oughta do it. Nearly everyone will be a patriot come next election. If we can hold the republic together that long.

Gingrich earned my respect.

Pragmatically, it may not have been the best run campaign, but he never did anything that was dishonorable or disgraceful. When you think back to those first debates, when he defended and lauded all those conservatives on the stage, and when he only finally defended himself after taking 3 weeks of negative advertising in IOWA from Willard...

He is not the same man he was 20 years. And most people are so blinded by their hate and judgmentalness, they can't see that...

The blind have led America into the ditch...

Unfortunately negative ads work and Romney was armed to the teeth.

Gingrich earned the lead before Iowa by being positive and inspirational but then Romney picked his moment to attack when he saw the whites of the eyes with Iowa weeks away.

Then add Ron Paul doing the same. No one could survive that.

he did survive it, and rebounded to SC, and then got to Florida where Willard threw 17 mil dollars worth of negative ads, filthy ads, lying ads about Newt, and had every gop national and florida state figure sabotaging Newt at eveyr stop along the way. And Newt survived that.

Romney didn't reach out to Santorum immediately as he has Newt, because he knows Newt is dangerous. Santorum can be bought, and Romney and his people know who can be bought...

I am very fortunate to know b9 in person and you’re right about her!

She’s is a blessing and brilliant.

God bless and keep you both, Newt Gingrich and all of his steadfast loyal supporters.

I remain praying.

Divine Intervention.

Something’s gotta give.

A lot can and will happen between now and the convention.

Trust in Him.

Iowa was the first volley. Florida was the second. If Gingrich had won Iowa like he was poised to do, there would have been no Santorum to mess things up.

Yes, that's why I call her b10 - because she's a perfect 10!

Newt's up to something, I'll tell you that.

It's not over, it's just going to be something different.

STAY TUNED.
