Okay, Callista’s hair is starting to grow on me. I kinda like it. And she is always tastefully dressed. What a change that would be.

I believe she is the special needs daughter .... someone posted a picture of her with Rick the other day & it was just beautiful. When it was reported she was going to the hospital, I didn’t hear why.

“Can’t figure out why Cain’s endorsement would mean much to anybody.

I’d rather not have it if I were Newt.

I’d much rather have Cain’s endorsement that those weaselly RINOs Dole and McLame.

Wait, what? I find that confusing.

Do you think Cain endorsing Mitt would be better? To what end?

Would a Palin endorsement of Newt be a good thing? Really, I'm just curious why you'd say that.

An AP story says it’s Trisomy 18 which is more dangerous for survival than Downs syndrome.

My oldest daughter's family lives in Concow, CA. We tried Skype this afternoon, but their ATT wireless was all static, no audio for most of the video call.

My hometown in South Texas is busting at the seams. Carrizo Springs, Cotulla, La Pryor, all of these small towns are full. If anyone wants to work for the oil companies or for trucking companies come on they will put you to work. Sales Tax collections in our small town have exploded. It has been stated that this could last for another fifteen years. There is even talk of a refinery. Several of the big oil companies have built big office buildings in and around Carrizo.

I think the lighting in the venue precluded giving the television audience a good view of the audience. The room was dark, the stage was lit. Newt couldn't even see individual audience members.

It was a dinner / talk event. From the looks of it, a sort of "dress up" affair.

While what you say is a concern, keep in mind that many of those early vote ballots were also cast on the heels of Newt’s blow out victory in South Carolina that lasted for a few days before Bloody Thursday of this week. Romney came into Florida with at least a limp after SC. :)

Forgive me, Lady J, I guess you meant well but that was really tacky combining prayers for his daughter with a request to drop out.

I think sending requests to drop out is in poor taste anyway.

Oh dear, she's just a baby! I have no idea the age of his children. Wonder since she defied the odds at birth, if she is out of that critical zone. You know, he knew something was wrong on Thursday night and he did good, kept focused. His mom is 93, looking great and his youngest is 3 and in the hospital. We just never know.

Parents can survive anything but when it comes to one's own children - it's horrible. I have to keep Bella in my prayers. Children are always first on the list! Thank you.

"Newt Gingrich needs to hire a health coach and then do what he can to improve his stamina."

He should go on testosterone and HGH replacement therapy. He would feel and seem 20 years younger, but with the wisdom of his true age.

"C-SPAN has a Romney event up next. This is great for a compare and contrast!"

I forced myself to watch it. Mitt bobs all over the place and has such a phoney laugh. I pray that enough people can see through his fakeiness.

I'm sorry that you feel that way. I did NOT ask him to drop out. I made a request that he support Newt in FLORIDA against the Romney machine - & ask his FLORIDA supporters to do the same.

Truly amazing speach.... as profound as Reagans when the peoples hearts were so dispondant at that time.

Newt knows the people have to be galvanized to accomplish the work now and ahead...he cannot do it without the people as there is no doubt the opposition will continue.

However I somehow believe that because Newt realizes what needs to be done for our nation to recover and thrive again, that as the people turn to God again the Lord will open the way for this to happen. If, however the people resist the Lord, then neither Newt nor any man will be able to stop the trajectory we are on....this IMO is our last chance and we’ll know soon enough if we even still have one.

As I explained to another poster, I don’t like or trust Cain.

He didn’t do this until Newt seemed to be The One.

And his own marital history is nothing to brag about. Newt doesn’t need that.

He’s got his reasons for doing this and they are not unselfish. Just my opinion.

I thank you for the explanation. I am at peace with the Santorum voters actions on Tuesday and only sorrow for their ignorance, but many of us are fasting and praying for over the course of the next hours through Tuesday and GOD’s will shall be done. We are going to get the leader and president we deserve.

Newt is handling them gingerly, you are correct. I am saying it more directly only because I believe it to be true, that they are “good men doing nothing”, a mathmatical certainty to boot when you look at the outcome such a vote brings, just as they believe that purity trumps saving the nation from Romney or Obama.

Fortunately, Santorum has sunk from 16 to 9 in Florida and so many must be getting the picture as Newt is said tonight to be tightening. Thank you for explaining, Josh.

God be with us.

Yes, it’s Bella his special needs daughter. This is one of many times she has had need of medical intervention. But the sweet darling has already defied the odds surpassing what most survive with her condition.

May God truly continue to equip both Rick and his wife to trust Him for thier daughter in all situations faced.

As I stated before - I DID NOT ask him to drop out. Only for support in the FLORIDA vote. I live in Florida & his help would be of great benefit to stop Romney.

At this point, Newt needs all the help he can get to mobilize voters for him in FL.

Sorry. I’m for Newt also, but some people are acting like zealots.

Flooding a guy with requests to drop out?

Please.

I hope your daughter gets better and, by the way, drop out for the good of the country.

Santorum is a decent man. I don’t like him but he has a lot of loyal supporters. He should make the decision about whether to drop out or not.

I was very offended when I saw that post and I tried to be respectful as possible when saying so.

And why insult me? Don’t let your passion overcome all boundaries of civilized behavior.

No one knows better than I do how many supporters Cain had and how over the top they were.

My candidate was the beneficiary of a lot of Cain inspired hate.

So, no I don’t like him and I won’t say I do. But if his endorsement actually helps Newt, then good.

Newt delivered a terrific speech and solidified the run he is prepared to make in the fall - I'm excited!!!!!!!

I've been concerned the whole week that Romney and his establishment backers would be able to successfully knife Gingrich. But I realized tonight that Newt is going to win.

Newt's going to win because he understands what makes Americans tick. And he has this understanding only in the way that a historian versed in America's past, present and future can understand Americans.

What Newt understands is that Americans want, more than anything, for America to be great. And what Gingrich does better than any politician since Ronald Reagan is speak the language of American greatness. Romney in contrast can't even pronounce the words that make up this language, let alone understand what those words mean.

This week the whole pundit and political class belittled Newt's moon proposals. Even Limbaugh jumped on that bandwagon - something which shocked me when I heard it. But what they've apparently forgotten is that Neil Armstrong stepping on the Moon was one of the things that made America great. And now -- it's time to be great again.

That's why Gingrich will win, the Democrats will lose and America will renew itself and lead the way, as it should, into the last frontier.
