I think he was talking Michelle Pfeiffer; he’s kind of a cougar hound dog.

I hate to say this, and I hope I'm wrong, but I think Trump is backing Gingrich figuring he's going to lose. This will be his excuse to run as a 3rd party against Romney and Obama, hoping he'll pick up the pissed off conservative base.

Well, in case you weren't paying attention, a butt-load of us are not voting for Mitt either in the Primaries or the General.

We don't vote for Liberals, period!

“Well if he does, he has a bigger pair than some of our so called conservative leaders (Radio Pundits).”

I’ve been depressed about this too, The Cajun. Listening to Hannity and Rush today. Hannity praising Romney for his win.
Rush reminding us that Bam is the enemy. Wussy and a duh!

A terrible day after having two GOP “leaders” in my face for two days calling me a traitor for taking a stand against Romney.
Well lo and behold. I tune in to the ONLY real Conservative talk show host..who is fearless to boot:Mark Levin...

And he is ripping , ripping Romney,”What exactly was his Conservative message that got him so many votes in Fla?” Romney Care and Ann Coulter. It is so refreshing. I highly rec. that you Freepers listen to his first hour today.
It’s free on Marklevinshow.com

He’s still lambasting Ann...taking apart her column “Three Cheers for Romneycare” line by line. What a dufus to have written that...Does she think it’s going to help her buddy?
GO Mark and you’re welcome here in FR anytime!

Looking forward to the second hour. We have a radio talk show host ally, peeps..and it’s Mark.
Yhello? Yhello?
Get off the phone ya big dope!!!

I hope that is the case. I agree an endorsement is not a major announcement. And it is too early to tell of "his candidate" will win. Every time there has been a frontrunner, he or she has been knocked down.

Whatever, I will vote whoever wins the GOP nomination, even if it is somebody I dislike. Just think of more of Eric Holder and the lawsuits against the states. None of the 4 GOP candidates would ever go that far. Only secret Obama supporters here would try to convince us to go 3rd party.

Totally agree with you, I had Rush and Hannity on my tag line, dropped them off of it yesterday.
Turned off Rush today and didn't listen to Hannity.
See who's left on my tag line :^)

I'm no Trump fan. I would have thought Trump would be more likely to endorse Romney.

However, Josh Painter is absolutely right — Gingrich needs money, he needs money, both quickly to turn the campaign around and for the long term to carry the fight to the convention. If you're going up against a self-funded multimillionare candidate, having another multimillionare backing you is a huge benefit.

Gingrich deserves congratulations if this report proves to be true.

“Remember that the Celebrity Apprentice appears on NBC starting February 19th.”

That is spot on. Trump cares about his business first and foremost. Being a true conservative is a distant second.

Actually, it could be worth a lot. Trump is connected to all kinds of big money people, many of who would normally support the D candidate but who are disappointed in Obama. Trump might pull together the funding syndicate Newt will need to stave off Romney and then Obama. Money is the only serious advantage Romney has enjoyed, Trump theoretically could neutralize that. Or Newtralize, as it were.

The cool thing is even if Newt loses, this leaves Trump open to a third party run without having to contradict himself. Which means either way we should be able to keep Mitt out of the White House and dash the little music man’s hopes on some sharp rocks. Now if he picks Newt as V.P., his ticket might even have a chance to win.

Now you know why so many are boycotting Drudge. He’s been in the tank for Romney for YEARS, since the last primary. The guy has thrown his conservative credibility out the window almost as much as Coulter.

At any rate, I remember Mitt refused to attend Trump’s cancelled debate in December. I’m sure that didn’t help sway Trump’s endorsement.

It sure is cool that Newt has the endorsement of so many dynamic, interesting, creative, successful people while Mitt garners the endorsement largely of garden variety political hacks.

One last thing that I just posted on the other thread...

If Trump endorses Newt, it isn't so much about getting him votes as it is, Trump be able to strong arm his ultra wealthy contacts, that possibly owe him, to donate too. An endorsement like Trump brings in money, and hopefully votes to follow.
