Gingrich: Romney’s ‘Conservative Enough’ Compared To ‘Most Radical, Leftist Pres in American Hist'
Cnsnews.com ^ | May 2 2012 | Edwina mora

Posted on 05/02/2012 11:11:41 PM PDT by NoLibZone

While formally suspending his bid for the Republican presidential nomination on Wednesday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that he believes presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney is conservative enough when compared to “the most radical, leftist president in American history.”

“And my answer is simple: compared to Barack Obama?

You know this is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan. This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history.”

I had just about decided to hold my nose and vote for Romney, then I heard about the breakfast meeting with Michael Bloomberg.

Bloomberg's main mission these days is ramming NYC gun laws down everyone's throat. If he endorses Romney I'm sure going to wonder what promises were made.

He’s got a point.
A vote for Romney cancels a vote for Obama.
Not voting doesn’t.

A vote for Romney is your consent to abortion, homosexual marriage, gun control, global warming, big government, mandates, RomneyCare, etc., but pushed by the GOP.

If Reagan were here he would ask what is Romney doing in the GOP race to begin with. I say he’s a pawn of the left’s to keep barry in office.

Sorry Newt. Socialist pro-choice democrats like Romney are never "conservative enough."

and only matters if your in a battleground state.

If your in a battleground state...Why?

If Mitt is the nominee and Obama is the incumbent, then who will the people who hate Mitt vote for?

Or are they going to take their ball and go home?

If Obama gets re-elected they will need a new place to bitch and moan because the one of the first places going off the air will be FreeRepublic along with EIB.

I bet you “anyone but Mitt” people will just be tickled pink that Obama gets another 4 years.

Look I am not happy that Mitt is probably going to be the nominee. Is there any possible way someone else will be, realistically?

A non vote or a vote for anyone but the republican running against Obama is a vote for SURRENDER, it is not even a vote for RETREAT to fight another day.

THERE WILL BE NO OTHER DAY.

Thank GOD the majority of people in the USA don’t frequent FR and drink all the anti-Mitt Kool-aid.

JEEZ!

  It's the most honest endorsement I've ever heard. Mitt Romney really isn't as far left as a radical illegal alien Marxist with ties to the mob and domestic terrorists. Clearly, he's not that bad.

Jim, I know your position and I respect it.
I’m not sure myself what I will do on election day
but I will not accept Obama for four more years.
If we can gain the Senate it’s possible that origionating
Proper bills we can influence Romney to do what is
right, certainly with Obama it will be more of a
struggle, if possible at all.

Sarah was my choice but that didn’t happen.
I only know Obama is a disaster to our nation,
if he’s elected again there will be NO recovery
because that isn’t in his interest.

Myself, I’m old, but my niece just got married
and I see a dark time coming for them if this
rampant socialism isn’t stopped.
It’s not up to Romney but the Tea party to put
the brakes on and control the narrative.
I pray to Divine Providence, like Washington did
that our nation and way of life can continue to
be a shineing goal for all who seek freedom and
prosperity for their progeny.

Jsut to clarify two things: first, a vote for Romney is a vote for someone who supported all of the above in the past but now claims not to anymore. Skepticism of his conversion is quite reasonable, but do you think there is any possibilty that five years of campaigning face to face with Republican voters has actually changed his mind on at least some things?

Second, is it you opinion that a 2nd Obama term would be less harmful than Romney becuse the Republicans would oppose Obama, but support the same measures from Romney?

The socialism problem is far greater than Obama.

He is just a symptom

As long as you have universal suffrage, you will have democracy, and then collapse.

That's why the Founders didn't put a right to vote in the Constitution, and the marxists constantly work to expand the franchise, now to felons and illegal aliens.

"Democracies have been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death." James Madison

In 2008 I swore I would never vote for McCain—but I just HAD to vote for Sarah Palin and it wasn't MY fault they refused to let them run on separate ballots.

If Mitt doesn't pick a good VP and then swear to resign the second after his inauguration, he ain't gonna make it. (a Palin write in would not have added to the McCain/Palin ticket btw)

Your 2nd question is irrelevant. I will not vote for a man who has an unquestionably abortionist, homosexualist, statist record and who is lying about it (ie, currently claims that he has always been pro-life and “quite frankly” all of his positions have “always been conservative.” And who is still pushing his anti-liberty RomneyCare compulsory health insurance plan (see Ronald Reagan on compulsory health insurance is socialism) and claims it is a “conservative solution” (another lie). A man who still pushes global warming. A man who claims more stimulus spending may be necessary. A man who supports TARP, bailouts, the takeover of GM and stimulus spending and increasing the debt limit as necessary and good ideas. A man who says he will do nothing about gays in the military, etc. The man is a fricken LIBERAL/PROGRESSIVE and is death to conservatism in the GOP!! Hell no I will not support him!!

I am voting a straight R ticket to neutralize one of the fraudulent D votes.

Romney pushes his own brand of socialism.

Big government “solutions.” Mandates against the people, government control over the economy, etc.

Big government mandated “solutions” for health care, global warming, “gay rights,” “minority rights,” “women’s rights,” “dangerous guns,” jobs, the economy, everything that ails us.

Romney doesn’t believe in limited government or equality under the law for all!

Ronald Reagan: “Government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem.”

Refer to enumerated powers, and powers reserved to the states and the people in the constitution!

Romney couldn’t care less about the constitution exactly like Obama! “It’s not socialism when we do it!”

Big government = socialism.

Special rights granted by government, favorable treatment under the law for special interest groups, etc, is antithetical to liberty, is unconstitutional and is socialism!

His big government “solutions” fly in the face of constitutionally limited government. He is a big government socialist and has a big government solution for every problem facing us! And the stinking RINOs will eat it up and help him push his big government agenda through. The GOP will not block “their” president.

Abiding by the constitution is a foreign concept to team Romney!!

Personally I can not pull the lever for a man for which I have such high disregard. Romney is such a slimey politician that my voting for him would feel immoral. Seriously, I’d be voting for a man who I know is a pandering liar. Therefore, I’ll pass on both and vote third party.

Can’t be true. Newt would never say this. He’s the only true conservative in the race. He would never, ever, ever, say anything like this.

I think this is actually from a statement by Scuzzyfavy, attributed to Newt. Or maybe it came out of Nancy Pelosi’s office. But out of Newt’s mouth? Never.

I don’t like Romney by any means. He sucks.

But lets look at it this way. Either you vote for Romney against Obama or it may be the last chance you ever get to vote.

You people who are against holding your nose and voting for Romney are turning the country over to the Muslim marxist for another 4 years, 4 years in which he can run wild without worrying about running again.

I say Vote for Romney now and get started building a third party that eally does have Conservative values. Remember Romney won the candidacy because he had half of the Republican party on his side the whole time. This mess we are now in with isn’t Romney’s fault , it is the fault of the GOP. Stay in the GOP and we will face the same thing in 4 years. We mustform a new party, the old one just sucks too much.

It is irrational to judge someone by their words when their words are contradicted by their actions.

In criminal actions, every defendant gets judgment day religion. If we sentenced them based upon their words, our prisons would be empty.

Romney, by his actions has demonstrated his big government, anti freedom, socialist agenda. Hi words, today are nothing more than judgment day religion.

Jim saw this question as irrelevant but I consider it relevant and I'll answer: YES.

I saw the same thing in reverse on January 20, 1969. There were many Democrats who were antiwar at heart but went along with the Vietnam War under LBJ. As soon as Nixon was President, those Dems felt free to oppose the policies that they had been publicly supporting.

In American politics, party loyalty is a powerful force. A Romney presidency would indeed pull the Republican Party well to the left (with, of course, a few honorable exceptions).

I wasn’t satisfied with any of the candidates (and certainly not Romney), but among those remaining toward the end, I preferred Gingrich. My position, though — and ideological purity — is of little importance compared with the position of the country. That position is dire, as I think all of us here agree, and will get worse under a lame-duck Obama presidency.

Look at what he’s done already, and imagine what will be in store for us when the restraints of having to fool people until after re-election are no longer there. Even if Romney were as bad as Obama, which I don’t concede, Romney wouldn’t be in that position. “This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history.” Of course. That’s the key point. Having a pseudo-conservative Republican as president would present some problems for the conservative movement. I don’t think that would be nearly as bad, though, as having Obama and his cohorts continuing to run the country.

If I vote for Romney, it in no way implies my approval of all his positions or even of him as a person. It simply means I considered that the less harmful alternative.

“If I vote for Romney, it in no way implies my approval of all his positions or even of him as a person”

With all due respect that's right up there as one of the stupidest statements I've read on FR in a long time.

This idea, shared by others here, that voting for someone while at the same time disapproving of his positions and him as a person is idiotic.

Has it occurred to any of you brain surgeons that the reason you have that choice is because each and everyone of you are morally rudderless sheep without principle or conviction who can be manipulated by anyone with a R behind their name..

On second thought don't answer that, I'm sick of unprincipled, idiotic, drivel coming from folks who call themselves conservatives but when push comes to shove cant walk the walk...
