Slamming and bad mouthing Newt coming from a small minority of Freeper malcontents serves no useful purpose, gain or statement. Gringrich, Santorum, Palin, Perry, Cain, etc. did and will do what loyal Republicans always do. They back the candidate that comes out on top of their primaries. And....I have no doubt that all these good folks will do a terrific job in openly supporting Mitt Romney.
Get real, Freepers, it is what it is!!! And....to boot, this election is not about Mitt Romney. Most folks will be voting against Barack Hussein Obama, period!!! At the end of the day, it is quite simple, if you have any common sense or brains at all....it is.....”ANYBODY BUT OBAMA”. To do anything otherwise is pure insanity, IMHO. In reality, in objective review, Romney trumps Obama by any measurement you use.
But.....it is a free country, at least for today, so each individual should make their own personal choice relative their POTUS selection.
So if Hillary Clinton was the GOP nominee, would you insist this election is not "about" Hillary Clinton? You don't think an election is about what the winner is going to do for the next 4 years?
My values don't shift in the wind or change with the times. Every election is always about promoting the exact same conservative principles to me. Different elections aren't "about" different thigns. That's nothing but amoral political consultant speak.
