He did not endorse Romney. Shep said we all must be bored with what he said and Ed Rollins said he self imploded and is a sore loser. Fox is livid. Newt got a lot in about what should be done in every realm and how the presidency is a small part of where we can focus to make a difference. He went into a lot of detail.

I’m sorry it came to this but there was no alternative path to continue. Funding just isn’t there.

Newt's campaign is deep in debt. I believe he is suspending, not ending, his campaign for the same reason that Rick Santorum did: A suspended campaign can still raise money. They can still leverage their delegates at the convention to get favorable language to conservatives in the platform and/or ensure a conservative, not a RINO, is put in the Veep slot.

Doctor Paul,
It’s now up to you alone to prevent Willard from getting enough delegate votes.
If you can do this you have my gratitude for forcing a brokered convention.

Thanks for explaining that. I can tell he is going to try to make a difference in whatever capacity he can.

Romney IS NOT THE NOMINEE.

Romney just lost his “delegates” in Massachusetts.

THEY REFUSE TO BOW TO HIM, like you.

Thank you for the precise summary of the nasty remarks about Newt, from the slimebags Shepard Smith, Ed Rollins and Carl Cameron after Newt’s speech!

Newt did not endorse Romney! LOL.

You do know that Texas still hasn't voted the primary yet, right?

Mittbots have been calling this over since the night it started, but it's not over until the convention.

ABL Anyone but Liberals. And that includes Romney.

Newt Gingrich to endorse Mitt Romney
by John Hayward
05/01/2012

In an interview with USA Today, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that he will endorse former rival Mitt Romney after he formally suspends his own candidacy, and will actively campaign for Romney. Gingrich also said Romney would help him retire his campaign debt.

... Gingrich offered Romney some hard-won respect in his USA Today interview:

“Mitt Romney met the first criteria of being a good candidate: He won,” Gingrich said. “Now, you have to respect that.”

The only difference between the bastard and Willard is that one is half white and the other is white...or, one is half Kenyan and the other is half Mexican.

Alright!...and here's something we need to be aware of Obama stated...... the Press isn't airing and worth knowing....

In response to Afghan outrage over the inadvertent Koran burnings by the U.S. Military in February, the Obama Defense Department created a mandatory training for military service members in the region. It is entitled, "Proper handling and disposal of Islamic Religious Materials:... Service Members/Civilian Training."

The Obama administration asserts regarding Islam:

"We will hold sacred the beliefs held sacred by others."

Apparently to President Obama, the sacred beliefs of Islam in Afghanistan must be held sacred by the U.S. government,.... but Christianity in America is a nuisance to be reshaped by ObamaCare, the courts and the bureaucracy with no regard for its beliefs.

From Newt...keeping us informed where the Press won't....

I watched it on C-Span — I have lost my enthusiasm for Fox News Channel.

Indeed!...not so sure it's possible to come to any resolution about this....the Obama Admin/Dems/Gops wanted to create division and it sure evidences that here.

What an insane mess!..and that's exactly what our Fore Fathers said would happen....and here we are!

..."A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. .....While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued;.... but when once they lose their virtue then will be 'ready to surrender' their liberties to the first external or internal invader."......

Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779
