Newt said that because he’s a candidate running and does not want to see the republicans move to Obama....that’s just statesmanship for crying out loud.....
Further though Romney has mentioned Newt serving with him..Newt said no...and that speaks volumes!
You're buying the propaganda from the elites and and MSM, bleating like scared sheep. I refuse to have a loser liberal foisted on me. I will NOT abandon my principles. You can do as you like.

Mitt Romney must win over 60% of all remaining hard delegates to secure the GOP nomination. Surprised?
19 states still need to be heard from, and of those states 869 hard delegates are available at the state and district level (discounting the 37 total delegates available between Indiana and Arkansas, which have proportionality rules only a democrat could love). State and committee GOP delegates number about 69, which Im throwing into my calculations as a given for Romney.
Nevertheless, Romney still needs 663 delegates to reach that magic 1144 number.
Can he do it?
Of the 11,280,792 votes cast so far, Romney has accumulated 4,595,908 or only about 41%. Typically, Romney does not garner more than an average of 44% of the vote. Santorum averaged about 25% of the vote. Even if half of Santorums supporters vote for Mitt, this still does not give him the necessary 60+ % to secure the GOP nomination.
I blame those who supported a liberal.
You blame those who won't/can't support a liberal.
You call having integrity stupid.
That standing on principle is wrong, that having values is a mistake, that having morals hurts our cause.
I am a conservative.
You are a pragmatist.
You are also a sellout, someone without conviction.
You are letting fear dictate your actions.
You are a sheep.
You are worthless.
It is you who do damage to the cause, not I.
Thank you, Jim
We are being asked to surrender our principles.
We are being told that voting for a leftist progressive liar is the only way to save the conservative movement.
We are being told that to stick with our principles is beyond common sense and hysterical.
but I know differently.
I know that once we have abandoned conservatism, we will never get it back.
#1704 - You were too easy on him, stop holding back. :p
Gingrich answered probably not but not because I am opposed to Mitt. and he also said he would be happy to serve as an advisor to Romney like he did with Bush.
There is no such thing as abandoning conservatism to save conservatism
Well, Palin did endorse Gingrich, didn't she?
The chances of Gingrich naming Palin as his VP are very low, but I can see possibilities. They do have a common background of being “break-up-the-good-old-boy network” people. Palin did write a book including her annoyance at Alaska Right to Life not being allowed to endorse her because she wasn't part of the Alaska GOP establishment.
It could work.
As for the response from the other side, it might include the following:
* “The snow and sunshine ticket”
* “The Ph.D. and six-year B.A. ticket”
* “Two losers, top and bottom of the ticket.”
* “Now we all know for sure that Newt wants to be the smartest guy in the room and can't tolerate intellectual competition.”
* “Gingrich wants to secede, but when the South walks they need Alaska oil, so he'll let Palin be an honorary Dixie Chick. After all, her hubby already likes the Alaska Independence Party.”
My point here is not to bash Palin, but to point out that Palin carries baggage which is unique to her. The hatred against Rick Santorum doesn't even come close to the hatred against Sarah Palin.
I am not necessarily opposed to a Palin presidency, though experience counts, and I believe she needs more “time in the chair.” However, I think I could support a Palin vice-presidency, and while I hadn't thought of a Gingrich-Palin ticket, I'm the first one to say that a radical game change at this point is needed. Palin might be the needed game change, and it would almost immediately neutralize the evangelical objections to Gingrich's moral background.
If Gingrich decides to name Palin as his vice-president I'll back the ticket and start trying to tell everyone I can that Gingrich has shown he's serious about conservative Christian issues or he wouldn't have taken the risk to put Palin on his ticket.
But let's not kid ourselves that everyone else is as pro-Palin as Freepers. She ignites tremendous negative response for a variety of reasons, some of them legitimate but most of them nonsense.
At this point Gingrich probably needs anything he can get to pull his campaign out of the dustbin, and naming Palin as VP could do that. It's a high-risk gamble — though intriguingly, the biggest negatives Palin has (lack of professional political experience, weak educational background, etc.) are the precise areas where Gingrich is strongest, and Gingrich's weak points are where Palin is strongest.
And if Gingrich wins the presidency, after four years of daily classes from Professor Gingrich, anyone who hasn't learned a lot must have rocks for brains. I think four years of education from Gingrich would be very helpful to Palin, and probably everybody else dealing with Gingrich on a regular basis. I have no doubt that Gingrich would be a better professor than anyone Palin took in college, and she'd learn a great deal from him.
The more I think about it, the more I think the idea of nominating Palin has some real potential and they could make a good team.
Probably won't happen, but this whole campaign has been strange, and we're down to the point that nothing but high-risk gambles are likely to pay off.
Your cause and mine are not the same. You aim to accelerate the demise of the United States by hiding behind fraudulent principles. I aim to fight to save the country I live, and when presented with a choice I will choose whatever option is best for the country. I don’t believe Mitt Romney represents my principles very well. However, I do believe that on the whole, Mitt Romney and the staff he constructs will be infinitely better than the radical leftists currently running the country.
Maybe conservative means giving up on the country. Maybe you think conviction means you do not fight your enemies. Maybe you think being conservative means you just go cry in the corner and let the enemy run roughshod because you didn’t get your way. Maybe you’re actually as much of a f***ing retard as you sound. I’m not sure.
I’m done with you.
They are not conservative. Watch the movie.
Well said, RetSignman. Thank you.
They're simply looking for someone to blame , should Obama win they certainly aren't going to blame themselves for failing to support/vote Newt when they had the chance to do so.
They'll be blaming all those who wouldn't vote Romney, and those who choose not to put their hand at all to either the Romeny or Obama slime. But guaranteed they won't blame those who voted "FOR'" Obama by voting "For" Romney....
I won't be voting for either of the two...Will not put my hand to all which they stand for and will bring about thereafter....not going to happen! I will continue to vote Newt until he wins or he says he's out.
Add Wilson to that list.
The GOP sent in Romney because it was his turn like McPain - knowing he will lose, clearing the field for better candidates in 2016 - or so their theory goes on the assumption that Obama (in his second term) does not void the Constitution completely, pack the Supreme Court, bypass Congress completely through regulatory agencies, and run for a third term.
Should any of that come to pass, the GOP will howl, then roll over asking for their collective tummies to be scratched.
Newt needs a homerun, badly.
DOVER, DE — Given the opportunity to work in Mitt Romneys cabinet, Newt Gingrich says he would pass.
I think Newt needs to shake things up.
Palin can do that, you remember what it did for McCain. (before McCain basically endorsed Obama)
I think Newt wins most of the remaining primaries if he made a big deal about taking Palin as a running mate (assuming she’d go for it)
[We will keep praying and put our trust in Him while taking our own stand on our principles that we know are right.]
Thank you onyx, although I would never try to interpret His reasons or designs, what IF He allowed the current occupant of our White House to have such absolute power over us?
Way to many of our population has grown complacent to the status quo, just maybe we are looking at a wake up call that, if true and ignored would be at our peril.
