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.

Romney IS NOT THE NOMINEE.

Romney just lost his “delegates” in Massachusetts.

THEY REFUSE TO BOW TO HIM, like you.

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.”

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....

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."......

Yep. I hear you. Since this election, I have heard so many things on Fox against Newt. Shameful. Beck today said he does not know why Newt is announcing he will announce a suspension. “We all get it and his donors got it long ago. Nobody notices,” he said. “We all know you are not going to be president.” I wonder what it is in Beck that wants to kick someone when they are on the ground and keep kicking them when he keeps talking up love so much?

I posted this on another thread about this:

I saw/heard the speech and it was grand. I could not believe what Shep and Rollins said about Newt afterward. It was horrible and disgusting, protraying Newt as a crazy man who never should have run. Shep said he doubted anyone kept listening to the end of the speech.

I will never listen to Shep’s news programs again.

I’ve stopped watching Fox lately and watching movies instead but I knew Newt was going to speak today so had Fox on. I doubt CNN was as horrible as Fox reporting the speech. Newscasters are supposed to report news, not call people crazy.

I am thoroughly disgusted and angry at Fox. That’s it for me and Fox.

Now, I’m watching “Night of the Living Dead”, a zombie movie. It will be nicer than what Shep said.

At least zombies don’t talk.

Isn’t it interesting that Newt was a regular commentator on Fox and well respected by them until he ran for president and now he is talked bout like a dog? He must be shocked at their viciousness.

Thank you so much for the ping, and sdf for the post.

(Snark free as opposed to the Guardian version, posted by Steelfish.)

This is classic Newt, forever. The big thinker and hell of a task master, both of which repelled the likes of Tom Coburn, Cantor, McConnell, McCain, Graham, Santorum and the rest of the Establishment.

Sadly, the voters had no use for the ONLY American the manipulative GOPE and the Marxists in power together, actually feared.

We have given ourselves over to the socialist instead, and all is well. /s

My new iPhone came in yesterday, so I have been setting it up and trying to learn it’s workings all day, consequently, I missed it all.

I doubt that I have had Fox on for more than 30 minutes since bloody Thursday. I will not support those a$$es by watching them again.

CNN also makes me sick, but when I do turn on the news (wrong word), it’s CNN.

We now have the most ignorant electorate in the history of American elections. I believe we have the most corrupt government and media our country has ever seen.

I have given up on most of America and as much as I hate to say this, I am no longer convinced that it’s possible to turn it all around.

As for Shep.... that homo pervert is now the ‘Fox brand’. He should have been taken off the air a long time ago. Screw Fox...

Yet, another observer called Newt's speech "spellbinding" Only Newt Gingrich could turn the rote task of suspending a presidential campaign into riveting theater. Gingrich wrapped up a “truly wild ride” Wednesday the same way he conducted it, delivering an overly long (23 minutes), ragged yet somehow spellbinding speech. It was vintage Newt: bombastic, bewildering, but never boring. Bucking pressure from his party to heal the rifts of a bitter primary, Gingrich did not offer a clear endorsement of Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee. ”I’m asked sometimes, is Mitt Romney conservative enough? And my answer is simple: compared to Barack Obama?” Gingrich said. “This is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan.” In a long list of tepid Romney endorsements, his was the most begrudging, if it was even an endorsement at all.

He’s not only gonna endorse Romney, he’s going to ‘sell’ his endorsement for the price of Romney helping him retire his campaign debt.

At least Santorum’s price for endorsing Romney is getting Romney to agree to some of Santorum’s pet projects.

The beloved, or should I say formerly beloved Mr. Herman Cain made a very fervent endorsement of Romney.

Wonder what Sarah will do?
