Exactly what many think of those pushing Mr. Gingrich, thus the problem. There are a good number of entrenched people that will not vote for the other.

Did you know that FR endorsed Huckabee?

Personally, I have no problem with earmarks. I don’t want to send my tax money to Washington in the first place. If my congressman or senator can bring it back to my state to spend instead of spending it on Solyndra in Calif or on a high speed rail in Calif, then I’m just fine with that.

Better that I’d get tax cuts and didn’t have to send them anything.

Santorum was endorsing Romney when the other choice was John McCain. Santorum had worked with McCain. It seems he didn’t like him.

So, Santorum was trying to defeat McCain who he saw as a loser. Turns out he was right.

How could he say that Romney was “conservative”?

There is no way. I assume he was lying and knew he was lying...all for political purposes.

Worth repeating. BOLDLY.

As you know, currently and in 2008, MITT's REAL ENEMIES ARE THE CONSERVATIVES.

By some accounts, Mitt wasn’t merely at the 1964 convention, but that he was down on the floor and joined his father in formally marching off the floor in protest against the conservatives, and Goldwater’s nomination. In 1968 the right made a laughing stock of his father’s anti-war campaign for the presidency. Romney claims that his mother ran on a pro-abortion platform for the Senate in 1970, that race was actually supposed to be the way that the Nixon administration ushered out George Romney.

Romney did not vote for Reagan, he would not even register Republican until after Reagan was gone, Mitt became a donater to, and even a fund raiser for democrats and was even fund raising for Planned Parenthood after re registering Republican in Oct. 1993. Mitt was anti Contract with America, and spoke out against the “Jesse Helms types” in the Senate.

Throw in a perfect, unbroken record of no Romney man ever serving our nation in uniform during their 171 year history here (neither patriotism nor the draft has ever snagged one) and you can see a pattern.

For me it is much more simple than that!

Why should I vote for the understudy when I could vote for the the real leader?

Hmmm. Some of this I did not know. Intriguing. When people propose theories of profound, systematic deception, I tend to question the theory, because in my experience, it takes a lot to motivate that kind of consistency. But what you’ve said, assuming its all true, would make this a deeply personal fight for Romney Jr., and would allow for rationalizing away acts of deception as means necessary to the end. Thanks for the insight.

More information along this line is the history and power of the Romney family within Mormonism since the family migrated here in 1841, after conversion in England, to more personally serve Joseph Smith.,br>The Romney's have always been deeply powerful within the secretive leadership, Bishop Mitt sought permission from the Prophet himself before running for President, and he and the religion have coordinated this effort in a massive public relations drive.

Romney devastated the state GOP in Massachusetts, losing seats during both elections of his term, he left with 34% approval, and the Democrats have owned the seat ever since, (Mitt had been the 4th Rep. Gov. in a row, Mass. prefers GOP Govs.).

Look at this tidbit as to evidence of a private agenda for Romney.

Romney told the abortion movement in private, to trust him as a stealth supporter, to just get him into the White House so that he could then deliver on his true, and necessarily secret, agenda.

NYT about Romney running for Governor in 2002, but referencing a greater national role: “At the end of the private session, when it became clear that the group was going to endorse Mr. Romney’s Democratic opponent, he surprised its leaders by saying he could be a “good voice” and the most effective national Republican leader on abortion, said Melissa Kogut, a former Naral official who has detailed notes from the meeting.

“I thought, ‘That’s interesting. He’s running for governor, and he’s trying to convince us to get behind him because of the role he is going to play on the national stage,’ ” she said. “We left the meeting feeling pretty good.”

Rick’s supporters are ill advised and have no idea about his big gov’t fiscal views as they refuse to look at his record, are content with him being a liar and his raving about how conservative a pro homo, pro abortion, socialistic healthcare candidate is. He’s a political hack and will use his supporters for his own advancement.

Patriots support a candidate who is FOR America and has a record proving it.

Too bad we didn’t know about all this in 2008, otherwise guys like Levin, Cain, and Santorum wouldn’t have been endorsing him in 2008. The fact of the matter is that Romney was the best choice three years ago. That’s not the case today. He is the worst.

We knew all this in 2008, at least here at freerepublic, Romney was never the best choice for anything Republican.

My recollection is that most of the posters were behind Thompson. I don’t know why anybody would have endorsed that tax hiking, amnesty loving, state trooper abusing, son of a biscuit eater.

I have three words for you: redundant, redundant and redundant. Surely, you know that no one is pure - all have flaws. In addition, you picked three of the easiest ones to swat away. In fact, they are surprisingly pedestrian.

Anyone can be in FreeRepublic 24/7 like you and post incessantly and mind numbingly repeating yourself. So, you don't like him. So what?

My suspicion is that you would dispatch Jesus Christ even easier and with more enthusiasm if He was running for office.

Dave W, not concerned whether you like my posts or read it! it is news worthy as Chuck Norris states his reasons for endorsing Newt.

Better brace yourself because there will be more pro Newt posts and if it offends you ..don’t read them. This is not your forum. GO NEWT!

>>He lives in the Washington area (in Virginia) though takes money from the Pines Hills school system of PA for home schooling.<<

What in the world are you talking about?
Look, I’ll give you all the other points but perhaps you have no clue how Virtual Charters work. They are funded by the property taxes paid, just like any other school. If Santorum has a residence in the Pines Hills district, he can send his kids to the Virtual School in PA. He has already paid for it.

I’m in MI. If I had a residence in Ohio but lived in MI five days a week, I could send my kids to Ohio Virtual Academy. My property taxes in Ohio PAY for it.

What you want is for this dude to pay property taxes in PA, property taxes in VA or MD, where he resides part time (perhaps renting and NOT paying taxes, I don’t know) AND pay to send his kids to a Virtual Academy? Are you Daft?

Newt was appalled and disgusted at the amount of dictatorial power that Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson tried to grab for himself at the outset of the financial crisis. However, he reluctantly supported a scaled-down plan after Paulson told the country that the world financial system was going to collapse without this emergency support.

Newt believes that the reckless, secretive and opaque way in which the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department administered the bailouts has been an affront to democracy. The Fed was picking winners and losers, using several emergency lending facilities to make all types of loans to connected parties, including to a bank owned by the Libyan government.

and yet he praised john mccain leaving the trail in 2008 and going back to d.c to help push it all thru...i know he did it “reluctantly”...

I ordered CAN MITT ROMNEY SERVE TWO MASTERS? from Amazon last week and look forward to its impact on his campaign.
One little lady, Tricia Erickson, taking on the big ol’ Mitt cabal...

I had no idea about the depth and history of the Romney vendetta against conservatives.

Thanks for posting that list of Newt’s conservative credentials, Marguerite. It’s most impressive.

Makes you wonder why there’s even a contest for the nomination at this point. Newt would be the best qualified candidate, with even half that record.
