That is NOT what happened.

FOX-BAIN “News” used the RINO Hume to PIMP
Romney because of long standing hatred
between Hume and the Speaker.

RINO Hume showed his hatred and Romney fixation.

Sounds like a good patriot.

He ran as hard as he could, but is now willing to be helpful in developing policy and unseating Obama.

The race for Nomination is NOT over.

Even with the endless and ubiquitous CHEATING
by RINO Romney the Premier backstabber.

Just watched the interview a while ago. Hume just can’t conceal his feelings for Newt. It was uncomfortable to see.

Much like Sarah Palin. Both would rather have somebody else be the nominee but ultimately they know that defeating Obama is the top priority.

Unfortunately Romney is going to be the nominee...Most unfortunately is that Obama is going to utterly destroy Romney unless gas prices remain high by elections day and then Romney would have a 50/50 chance of defeating Obama...The most two qualified candidates in this race and the two who had over 80% chance of defeating Obama were destroyed by our own side because of the insane over rating of debates...Rick Perry and Tim Pawlenty...It is too late now...

You’re right, the race is not over, but the remainder would have to be pretty much united behind somebody else and Gingrich and Santorum are both almost out of money.

I wish the debt limit was the issue in voters minds that it should be. Unfortunately if you bring it up most voters eyes cloud over and they start thinking about what’s for dinner that night.

Right before the elections Obama is going to ask for another 1.5 trillion dollars in debt increase...The majority of voters would ask what did he do with the 1.5 trillion dollars in debt increase that he asked for and was given a year ago? Let us see how Obama is going to get his way out of this...

Santorum canceled campaign events on Monday after....



Now didn't McCain also cancel his run.. for whatever reason... and although leading... he LOST.
Better now than latter... why have we run such wimps?
Palin is the only alternative for us to Mittly and the country would fall in to support her if she would run. If you have netflix and have not seen The Undefeated take take the time and see it.
She is who we need running against obama, Mittly is a sure loser and we can not afford that. So we have NO more options right now. If efforts were put with her we would win. The country does not want O any more and we have NO options beyond her.

Everything that the GOP could have had against Obama
is GONE with the RINO SOB Romney.

ObamaCARE.

Ineligibility.

Support for TARP and Sharia.

Incompetent governing (Romney sacked Mass.)

Corrupt (Romney covered up the BIG DIG)

Excessive taxers (Romney calls them “fees”)

Destroyers of Constitutions (Romney overrode
the Mass. Constitution to impose Romney-Gay-Marriage.

What is left?

I enjoyed the interview very much. Newt is so intelligent. He talked about how important it was that his campaign was about ideas. Then they showed a clip of Romney later in the show. It was a shallow sound bite. I hope Newt stays in just to raise the IQ of the discussion 50 points.

Yes the majority of voters would question the democrats and media lies...If the democrats and media can get away with lies all the times then they win elections all the times, the fact is that they do not win elections all the times, and in fact do not win elections most of the time, indicate that most voters are not as stupid as they think and hence they do not believe their lies. Remember 2010... if people are that stupid democrats would have kept their huge majortiy in Congress...let us not be so pessimistic and lose our grip in reality.

PS: In elections it is always EVENTS ON THE GROUND that determine the winners, not the media or even the candidates, yes they do have some effect but events on the ground are by far what make one side loses and another side wins.

Perhaps you can explain that to Governor Palin and Mr. Gingrich the next time you see them. Try not to yell though, it impresses no one.

The debt/deficit will be a big deal, and it is not so complicated that you can’t explain it to even the simplest of voters. We are spending 50% more than we take in every year. If you have a $20,000 a year job how long can you spend $30,000 a year? It is that simple. The money we need to close that gap cannot be raised by taxing the rich more, it cannot be raised in any way without crippling the economy. It is time to seriously look for things to cut and things to cut out. I don’t know how the Democrats can escape this debate without being ridiculed - their left wing will actually advocate more spending, probably accompanied by major (but still not enough, financially speaking) military cuts.

Its interesting to me you only mention romney. The other two have been showing their flaws too. I say this as a santorum supporter. I am bored with the whole election at this point. None of them, not even santorum, get me fired up.

I don’t think it will be much longer before it is only Romney, that’s why I only used his name. We know Ron Paul is only doing it for his benefit and it’s a question of whether Santorum will really put his political career at risk by continuing to Pennsylvania.

I certainly don’t support Romney. I am supporting Gingrich to the end.

The race for Nomination is NOT over.

For Gingrich, it is. He has won two primaries. I don't see him picking up any big slates of delegates in New York, New Jersey or California. Or even in Texas. In the unlikely event this goes to a brokered convention, I don't see the power brokers choosing someone who lost 48 states (and all of the territories).

Does it really matter which globalist is empowered/SElected(emphases & paragraphing added)?

OThuga again would be the absolute worst Destroyer In Chief--though it might be a toss-up between he and Shrillery de Fosterizer de Machiavelli de Stalin de Sade . . . however, they all have the same goals in mind . . . the same old boy's club holding their feet to satan's fires and to their oaths thereto. They all want to trash all authentic Christianity as well as Israel, the family and Freedoms and our beloved Republic of the USA.

.

From:

http://twoday.net/static/omega/files/quotes_from_people_who_consider_us_subjects.htm

5. “Nationalism is... First wave. The globalization of business and finance by advancing Third Wave economies routinely punctures the national “sovereignty” the nationalists hold so dear...” “The Third Wave... demassifies culture, values, and morality... There are more diverse religious belief systems.” “The Consitution of the United States needs to be reconsidered and altered... to create a whole new structure of government...”
.

The Tofflers say fundamentalist, biblical Christianity is “both dangerous and regressive.” Beliefs in nationalism, patriotism, and an exclusive God, “give birth to violence or repression.” Only when these “Dark Age” menaces are swept away can “advanced wealth creation” by the elite be achieved. Newt Gingrich ..., member of both the World Future Society and the Council on Foreign Relations, wrote the forward to Alvin and Heidi Toffler’s Creating a New Civilization

.

.
Biblical prophecy about the global government is advancing more and more rapidly. The premeditated, deliberate trashing of the USA is just a major aspect of such forces, plans, efforts. The SElections have long been a farce as part of the bread and circuses distraction from the worse treason under the table.

“The most two qualified candidates in this race and the two who had over 80% chance of defeating Obama were destroyed by our own side because of the insane over rating of debates...Rick Perry and Tim Pawlenty...It is too late now...”

Couldn’t agree more. These were really the only two that got into the race that had good qualifications and relatively little baggage. One surrendered before the battle had barely begun (I still can’t understand why except possibly campaign debt), and the other self-destructed with poor debate performances.

And now, we’re stuck with Romney, which sickens me. I’m just praying that the SCOTUS strikes down Obamacare in todo, and that Romney picks a VP candidate that will energize the conservative base. Bobby Jindal would be a good choice I think, though there are a few others too.

If those two things happen-no Obamacare and a conservative VP, then I could almost stomach Romney, but still with quite a few reservations...

I am too wanting very much that the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare because this would be even a more powerful victory than winning the Presidency, and that is of course in my humble opinion.
