I’m sorry it came to this but there was no alternative path to continue. Funding just isn’t there.
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.
Its over Romney is the GOP nominee, accept it.
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.
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.
I’m thankful I voted for Newt..
Me too!!! We did the right thing.
Newt Gingrich to endorse Mitt Romney
by John Hayward
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.
I’m glad you think so
This week in the threads I’m getting the death-by-a-1000-cuts and told I hate America
and the old usual “bigot” and other stuff
Its a jungle out there of MittBots
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
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 Sheps news programs again.
Ive 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. Thats 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.

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
Here is a complimentary article on Newt on Fox I found. (One of the few!)

No. Can’t be. Newt would never ever ever do something like that.
Fox News and Mittens can kiss my cheese grits. No Mitt, No FOX!!
I will still wrte-in his name. I won’t vote for Willard romney.
Yep. What you said.
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...
These posts like yours keep dropping on FR like confetti. Which is what they’re good for since they convince no one to change their position.
Thank you very much for post this link. I refuse to have Fox news and it traitors on in my house... they are truly dead to me.
God bless Newt.
LOL! Newt sure does have a way stating the obvious.
Thank you very much for posting Newt’s moments with us as he now stepes into his role to remind us all of who we are, where we need to go, and ahead to fight the good faith ahead now thru elections, and to influence our governments policies for the good of this country and our people.
Thank you Newt Gingrich....for your work on our nations behalf....may God guide and lead your steps ahead where we can once again be a nation under God...Free...and under the governance of Good Men.
***YOU GAVE it to Obama. I would have voted for NEWT.
Romney and his supports can kiss my -—.
Newt was my favourite but I knew he cpuld not win.
I never believed he was the rino that some said he was. And I never believed he was the savior that those same people said he was six months later..
Don’t leave Newt. We need you now more than ever.
He certainly did...and well worth the listen...once you get by all the thank you's, though understandable, Newt used this to keep us all on mark...and what is ahead. Such a good speech..as his his norm.
Good on you. I taped the remarks by that Mississippi homosexual, and Ed Rollins and Carl Cameron. Beyond disgraceful. They’re all unfit.
You speak for me, dearest Marcella. I caught his speech on Fox by accident because my husband was watching the channel to see the news about Junior Seau and only because eldest son had just called to tell him to turn on Fox!
Fox can go jump in a lake. I haven’t watched them in weeks. FR is a better news source by far.
Thanks for the information.
Great speech...not an ounce of self pity or blame...just forging ahead and reminders of what needs to be done now. Such a great man....all about Country and the People Imo.
It was a pleasure to vote for Newt. It was an honor to be "with" him in his run.
Shep Smith must have been in one of his bitchy hormonal moods.
“Night of the Living Dead” is a great movie!
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?
So glad that I got to vote for Newt in our primary. Other than Sarah it’s what I wanted. Seems to me that Sarah saw or was told ‘we will break you if you get in the race’. Romney’s money just doesn’t run out.
She will endorse Romney, and try to help him get elected. She has made it very clear defeating Obama is her priority, and unfortunately Romney is the only alternative.
YQW tomkat:) I did get a laugh out of Newt’s response when asked if Romney was conservative and Newt said something like “compared to Obama or Reagan?” that was absolute vintage Newt.
