Gingrich Campaigning For Romney

Gingrich Campaigning For Romney May 12, 2012

Newt Gingrich says he will join the campaign trail for Mitt Romney next week with two events in Georgia, including the state’s GOP convention. Gingrich, the former House speaker who represented Georgia, last week suspended his 2012 GOP presidential campaign. Gingrich won only two primaries in his campaign – Georgia and South Carolina.

A Gingrich campaign spokesman told CNN on Friday night about plans to help Romney, the likely GOP presidential nominee, starting at the GOP convention next weekend. He also reportedly will campaign for Romney in Las Vegas.

Gingrich has said he fully backs Romney and did so in his May 2 exit speech, though the endorsement seemed less than overwhelming. “I am asked sometimes is Mitt Romney conservative enough?” Gingrich said. “And my answer is simple – compared to Barack Obama? 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."

Gingrich’s arrival to the campaign trail is followed by that of several other former GOP candidates including GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

Rick Santorum, Romney’s once-closest challenger, endorsed Romney on Monday night, toward the end of a letter to supporters that also acknowledged their remaining “differences.”

Santorum said in the letter he would “keep lines of communication open with (Romney) and his campaign,” but gave no indication he would join the campaign trail.

Although I believed that Gingrich was never electable and did split the anti-Romney vote helping Romney defeat Santorum for the nomination, one must admit that he's doing the right thing here. We can't take our primary battles to the general election. This is an epochal election. One more Supreme Court nomination by Obama and gay marriage will be made constitutional to say nothing of the continued Obamacare and sociarlst czars. This election is anybody but Obama. We can't sit around and diss Romney and allow the Obamites to change our nation irreversibly for the worse.

I agree completely. As much as I love the Newster he was un-electable. He can play a big role in this election. The sooner we align against the left the better.

Ha. I was told anyone who oppose messiah Gingrich was ruining the country. Now he admits he’s a RINO. (Not that it was in doubt) He’s the same old Rockefeller guy he always has been.

Balderdash.

Lincoln changed our nation irreversibly for the worse 150 years ago

You have no concept of history and no moral compass.

Do what you feel is best, I’ll however do otherwise. Having at least one of our two main parties oppose socialism is in the nation’s best interest. Unfortunately, the only way for that to happen is for Romney to lose.

Every time I think of Saintorum, a screwball zealot, having been defeated, I get a tingle running down my leg. Nope, I’ve check it, it’s not pee.

YOU can’t post anything without dissing Newt... and every time I read your tripe, I am going to feed it right back to your simple mind, sport.

Romney - AUTHOR OF ROMNEYCARE AND ROMNEY-DEATHPANELS.

Romney - Backstabber, Liar, Panderer.

No wonder everyone in the DNC LOVES ROMNEY.

Well, the original pic of the candidate was sort of unappealing, politically, being too Green:

And WHY NOT a scrubbing bubble? Could a scrubbing bubble do any worse than Obummer??? That's a serious question....

This is a pump piece for Romney and it just repeats what Newt said on May 2. Romney's handlers know the scum of the earth will embrace Romney/socialism but the creme de la creme of America will NEVER submit and need constant reminders and you must feel you will do your part to help them.

One more Supreme Court nomination by Obama and gay marriage .....to say nothing of the continued Obamacare

Romney elected liberal judges and instituted same sex marriage in his.....to say nothing of the continued Romneycare - Romney showed Obama how it was done. The grandfather of socialism in MA sure fooled you but not everyone!

This election is anybody but Obama.

No, to YOU it 'was anybody but Newt'.

We can't sit around and diss Romney

YOU don't speak for 'we' - you embrace socialism and proved that you are very easily duped by a leader of a cult who was raised by deception to deceive - so that makes you putty in his hands.

He can play a big role in this election.

And the LIBERAL Romney spent millions, 24/7, trying to defeat Newt's role in leading America, one nation under God, back to greatness and out of the hands of it's enemy. The same sex marriage, pro baby killing, CULT leader candidate wants America all for himself to bring America under satan by the votes of the 'right'.

Now satan has the OK of the 'left' and, now, by those who consider themselves on the 'right'. Only the 'fearless of man' who are truly the God-fearing citizens of America will remain untainted.

God FIRST, LAST and ALWAYS - there are NO exceptions for HIS own!!

The sooner we align against the left the better.

I started early on by dissing LIBERAL Romney along with his elect tactics, what is taking you so long?

I agree. It reminds me of the mindset of the cult leader Romney and his tactics against Newt.

and every time I read your tripe, I am going to feed it right back to your simple mind, sport.

Simple minds are always easily deceived by cult leaders - that's their job! And that doesn't even register with the simple minded.

________________________________________________________

The fact is as so many have said, Romney is not Obama. I’m not sure that is the best that can be said about it him but if it is, it is a lot.

I don’t trust Romney to appoint good judges, but, I know Obama won’t. Any vote for any third party or refusal to vote in the general is a vote for Obama. I’m not sure it will make a difference anyway. While I believe there are Romney supporters I believe there are many more Anybody but Obama voters. Because of the anybody but Obama voters Romney will win in a landslide. He may not take 50 states but it will be a huge majority, I’m hoping for 60% of the electoral college.

For Goodness sakes, Newt is pushing him. Newt knows Romney is dangerous, he just knows that Obama is much more dangerous.

For goodness sake - HE IS NOT! From day one - Newt was anti-Obama and Romney was anti-Newt! Since you are in Romney's corner - at least 'try' to get facts right unlike LIAR Romney!

While I believe there are Romney supporters I believe there are many more Anybody but Obama voters.

I don't care if I'm the last one left - GOD FIRST ALWAYS and I will stomp on evil/cult leader/muzzie every time I can, and don't give a flip who does or doesn't. Got it? The weak are always the easiest to defeat - just put some fear in them and they crumble like a cheap suitcase.

You think cult leader Romney and his handlers doesn't know that and thus the "anyone but obama" mantra was born and then the plan to unmercifully tra$h anyone God-fearing with the credentials to become president - Sarah first and then Newt. They were working on this since '08 to dupe American voters. It is not rocket science to know this, so you can bow to Romney's deception - not everyone will. He needs you guys to survive, he/evil is counting on you and Barry/evil is counting on his pawns.

Feel in a squeeze? That's what evil does - ABO/ AllBetterObey - we/evil got you now!!

Respectfully, that is nonsense. It is an angry foot stomp.

I'm hoping for a miracle where honesty rises up and ejects Romney, and provides a limited government conservative as the Republican nominee. Romney has been rejected by US, we Republicans and conservatives, by about two to one, since 2007. We all know he stinks and how he got to where he is. If Republicans and Americans had any guts, they'd throw Romney out on his ear. He's a political vegan at an all-beef barbecue. He's the wrong guy in the wrong place and he's ruthless -- how do you think he got this far? LOOK AT HIS RECORD. Stop thinking about what you are supposedly voting "against" (Obama), and pay attention to the other 50 % of the equation -- wnat you're voting FOR. And who.

If it's O v R, I will vote for a third party. My vote will be NEUTRAL in the decision of which statist tyrant wins, but it WILL play a part in making the percentage of whichever leftist wins, O or R, that much weaker. That weak number, where I hope about two third of the voters rise up and vote against statist liberalism, will make the winner politically vulnerable.

Yes, vulnerable, and that's a good thing, since regardless of who wins, he is a statist bent on bending you to government in your health care, bending you to sharing the fiscal cost of on-demand abortion, bending you to mind the bogus science justifying destructive environmental tyranny of both energy AND food production via cap and trade global warming, relying on activist liberal judges to bend law to appropriate control over individuals, and bending you to forced acceptance of open homosexuality as "normal" in every aspect of your life.

That's Obama -- and that's Romney. They both have records to prove it, and Romney's record is stronger than Obama's on several counts! You can look it up! Voting for Romney is crazy.

We'd all better pray whichever bastard wins, gets a thin plurality so power players everywhere smell that the guy's support is weak, weak, weak, that he's vulnerable. EVERY VOTE IS AN OAR IN THE WATER setting course.

The race between Democrat and Republican this time is chooging government tyranny whether you vote for Romney or for Obama. But you want to see Republicans in Congress grow cojones in defending and promoting limited government conservatism? Trimming government? Hacking it out of the way? See Obama win on a 34% plurality, where two thirds of America voted against government tyranny, Republican and Democrat.

And I think Newt underestimates Romney as much as he overestimates his own influence. Newt was wrong on Scozzafava -- and he's wrong on Romney. Too bad.

Not even close - staying true to the stated cause of taking Obama out of office. Face it, it will be either Obama or Romney. Some would rather Obama to spite those who gave us Romney, but others believe Obama is the biggest threat to mour freedom. Decide where you fall in the mix and live with it. If you have the urge to attack someone, attack Obama and his supporters.
