Newt Gingrich Says Farewell In Web Video And Vows To Help Defeat Obama
Without actually mentioning Mitt Romney, former Republican presidential candidate thanks supporters for a 'terriffic campaign' 1 May 2012
Newt Gingrich has said he will quit the race for the Republican presidential nomination and will throw his political weight behind Mitt Romney for the presidency in what he called the "most important election in our lifetime".
Speaking in a web video to thank supporters, the former speaker of the House of Representatives did not endorse any other candidate, and made no mention of Romney by name. But he did say he will be campaigning to prevent Barack Obama's re-election in November, the prospect of which he called a "genuine disaster". He said he would officially suspend his campaign on Wednesday.
"The issues are the same," he said. "We're still faced with a tremendous crisis of our country's future. A re-election of Barack Obama will be a genuine disaster. And all of us have an obligation, I think, to do all we can to defeat Barack Obama."
Gingrich's withdrawal from the race leaves only Ron Paul as a distant challenger to Romney for the Republican nomination.

I don't even know who you are but 'what' is a different subject.
for stating the obvious arent you
The obvious is 'telling others what to do'? That's liberalism - 'do what I say and not what I do/or want to do'. You must be a mittbot.
Bachmann, Cain, Newt and Santorum were never given a chance by the GOP to win. Instead people like Rove planted the scandal that brought down Herman Cain’s candidacy. Can’t support bastards like that and their candidate.
If you think that reminding people that voting conservatives into the House and Senate is telling people what to do and nothing but ‘liberalism; you are way off in yor logic
The GOP establishment has spoken. Its going to be Mitt whether you like it or not.
Perhaps they looked forward to a match between a man who thinks he can become a god and one who thinks he already is one--May the real God help us now...
This evening at a Tea Party meeting someone said, the GOP in D.C. will never allow a conservative to win the primary. I believe it. I still thing we should join the Constitution Party and build it large enough to take our country back. I will still vote for Newt in the primary on May 8. I will vote Tea Party candidates for delegates (we have 4 committed delegates for Newt already). I will vote for Tea Party candidates in every position on the ballot. Our Tea Party is concentrating on taking down the democrat network in WV. It may take a few years, but we are determined to start at the bottom and work our way up for a conservative legislature. Then we can elect patriots to send to Wash.
THAT’s the right attitude. Because, face it, WE allowed this situation to get out of hand and fester. WE turned our backs for years, enjoying life, while things have declined, and our freedoms slipped away.
I don’t believe America is totally hopeless — I think Conservatives just have a LOT of ground to cover and take back — and it’s going to take time. Hopefully not too late ...might be, might not.
Conservative citizens somehow have to work harder now and we are rely on 'conservatives' politicians because of the 'liberal' the GOP and voters pushed through who didn't want a conservative? What's wrong with this picture?
Newbie 'you' have the arrogance to tell a true conservative freeper that his words are meaningless unless 'he' tells conservatives..?
Why didn't you support and vote for NEWT who doesn't need anyone to keep him on track - he'd be keeping the rest on track with all his plans he had to restore America! All of a sudden you are so concerned about our country?
Wrong - he couldn’t get the nod w/o clueless voters.
If we like it or not? I see, another ‘shove it down you throat’ type. Watch out what you shove down doesn’t come out with powerful force especially, when you thought it may happen, you are still shocked.
You make assumptions which are not based in fact.
A I did support Newt financially. I will cast my ballot for him when my primary comes around.
You can rail at ‘noobs’ all you want. Just because I was not a member of FR from its inception does not mean that I have not been active in politics. Nr does it mean that somehow my conservatism is somehow suspect.
Keep shooting your own. There will be no one left to help you out
“Wrong - he couldnt get the nod w/o clueless voters”
The voters were not clueless. Foxney News was clueing everyoe in night and day as to the wonderfulness of Mitt.
