Posted on 04/25/2012 6:01:44 PM PDT by NoLibZone
Texas Gov. Rick Perry originally endorsed Newt Gingrich as the top candidate after dropping out of the Republican presidential race.
But with Gingrich set to quit the campaign trail, Perry on Wednesday evening gave his support to the probable nominee, Mitt Romney.
"Mitt Romney has earned the Republican presidential nomination through hard work, a strong organization, and [a] disciplined message of restoring America after nearly four years of failed job-killing policies from President [Barack] Obama and his administration," Perry said in a statement provided to FOX News Channel.
"So today I join the many conservative Republicans across the nation in endorsing Mitt Romney for president and pledge to him, my constituents and the Republican Party that I will continue to work hard to help defeat President Obama.

Playground bullies, really? Poor babies. Were you really such wimps, unable able to push back or fight when challenged? I recall all sorts of nasty posts from you and others, but when the going got rough, you and Perry quit. Those bad bullies did it to you? So sad.
I'd rather be dumb than insane and you and yours were constantly doing the same things over and over and expecting different consequences.
OK, you'd rather be dumb. We get it.
I've been on FR since Feb., 1998. It is sickening to me what has been done to FR...and you are a major contributor, along with your pal DJMacWhoever.
Who cares how long you've been here on FR? I mean really? Does that give you some license to be here forever or cause others to think more highly of your dumb comments? And if you are sickened about what has "been done to FR" why don't you go somewhere else, rather than prolonging your agony here?
Believe me when I say, we can get along without your wisdom. Especially as the only thing you offer are stupid and provocative comments along with ridicule of good conservatives. What exactly have you done recently to help FR besides offering antagonistic, contentious and condescending comments? Huh? Oh, you think we should all fall in line along with your GOP precinct committee-person counterparts and support allegience to the soon-to-be nominee, Mitt "the liar" Romney? Sorry, but I'm not gonna do that. He is a liar, and a loser.
Do you actually think that FR is better because independent thinkers have been banned? Do you really think FR is better because some of us who thought Sarah wouldn't run for POTUS and said so, were zotted?
It isn't the so-called "independent thinkers" who have been banned, Einstein. It is the trolls, and anti-Conservatives, and contentious jerks who have gotten the boot. Too bad you've lost a few Libertarian nut-case buddies and a bunch of pretenders.
We are much, much better off without them as we challenge the true Evils of Liberalism as represented by Obama and his minions and Romney who is an absolute fraud on every single issue of importance to true Conservatives. Again, if you don't like it here, two words for you: Get Out!!! Can you hear me now???
Do you think FR is more relevant because old-time FReepers were zotted for expressing their opinions?
I know you really think you are relevant and very important to everyone within shouting distance, all because you've been here for umpteen years, but so frigging what? Are you somehow more special because you happened to sign on in 1998? Who cares about that besides you? Get over it and become relevant in 2012, OK?
Psssst! Those banned FReepers are WHY JR didn't have to contemplate selling ads! So, you think FR is better off today than a year ago?
If you check, you might find out that the vast, vast, vast majority of those "conservative pretenders" never gave a dime to support this site. Do you really think that FR is poorer intellectually or monetarily because they bit the dust?
Let me suggest to you, Mensa brains, that we are in fact a whole lot better off BECAUSE FR maintains uncompromising Conservative standards.
We are not total allegiance GOP zombies, we are Conservatives. We are pro-life, we are pro one-man and one-woman marriage, we are against nationalized health care, we are pro-2nd Amendment and against government regulations that confiscate private property and try to over-tax every bit of income we happen to earn, and we fight unrestricted borders.
I haven't donated in the past year, IIRC. I didn't donate because I was never sure I wouldn't be banned the next day ...like so many others.
Oh, you must be so worried that you might get banned, that you won't even donate a buck to the most Conservative site on the world wide web? Really? You poor little bullied wimp. Come on, take a chance and get some courage. Or, then again, maybe you will get banned, just because you aren't a true conservative but a troll and an appeasing wimp who supports someone just like yourself, Romney.
So why don't you get me banned.
As a genius, I'm just sure you realize that it isn't up to the common FReepers to do that. Maybe your little paranoid self is so worried that each of us has that power, but you must be delusional and are most certainly wrong.
Jim Robinson is the owner of this site, and even though you feel free to ridicule his leadership and ownership prerogatives, we are all here because he allows us to participate on his site. Again, if you don't like it, leave.
Lastly, you should be informed that just because the vast majority of us do not and will not support Romney, that doesn't mean we want Obama re-elected. Using ABO as an argument to conclude that we are primarily responsible for re-electing Obama. That is not only wrong but a big fat lie. Or have you forgotten the McCain fiasco of four years ago. McCain lost not because of a lack of support from Conservatives but because he was the wrong candidate with wrong compromised positions. He was an appeaser, just like Romney and offered no real alternative to Obama.
As true Conservatives we oppose Romney because he is a loser and will give us another four years of the worst President in many, many years of history, Barack Hussein Obama.
Yet you want us to concede now, in April of an election year, even before the GOP nomination convention. But I'm sure as a true genius, you can comprehend an viewpoint that suggests we resist Romney and Obama simultaneously and totally.
We are the resistance, we are Conservatives, we will prevail, but only if we do not compromise or retreat or concede. The consequence of your idiocy is that you believe that conceding is the only option and appeasement is a solution.
You are wrong.
BRAVO! Thank you very much, dearest vox_freedom.
That poster owes Jim and every member on Jim’s Team a sincere apology, but don’t anticipate one. I have since been told she is FB friends with an anti-FReeper, hence all the inflammatory, false, accusatory slurs.
All I know is I'm getting awfully damn tired of these blue staters standing on their pedestals and screeching that they'll burn in hell if they vote for Romney and that the rest of us should drink the Kool-Aid and follow their lead. I live in Florida. My vote counts. I don't have the privilege of voting 3rd party so I'll be voting to remove Obama. You can thank me later.
The sanctimonious bullshit around this place is starting to wear thin.
“Don’t kid yourself. Everyone with a future in Republican politics will be endorsing their party’s selection for presidential nominee. That’s the way the game is played.”
You are entirely correct. And I will give them a pass on this because they would burn their bridges forever if they didn’t endorse the “party” nominee.
However, it is still distasteful. No one is brave enough to speak the truth anymore.
“At least with Mitt the Ken doll he will give a thought to the rules and the constitution. With BO, we are freakin lost.”
Except that Mitt “Ken Doll” will harm conservatism so badly that it will forever wreck any chance of a future conservative POTUS. Sorry, sometimes you have to let things get REALLY bad before a CLEAR alternative will be picked. Romney is just not going to help the conservative agenda...just set it back. IF he manages to win. This conservative won’t help him.
>>Except that Mitt Ken Doll will harm conservatism so badly that it will forever wreck any chance of a future conservative POTUS. <<
You have NO guarantee that you will have a country.
I swear, some people aren’t paying attention.
For heaven’s sake, look at the front page of FR.
The dollar is worth squat, the Iranians are threatening all over the place, BO is telling the Russians to “just wait a bit longer, and the Muslim Brotherhood are in the administration.
The conservative agenda? That’s going to go real far under Sharia or communism.
Perhaps you don’t know anyone who lived under communism, I DO. AND BO is bringing it. The signs are there. ANYONE but Obama better win. Ted Nugent was right. And the conservatives that are holding ground are going to be the first to lose jobs, lose SS benefits, have their property “rezoned” etc. They know every one of us.
Seriously, they all just want a “revolution”. They want Obama to win and then they can be the “30%” who pull out all that ammo and scream “Live Free or Die”!, shoot a few libs and the rainbows of freedown fall upon us.
It doesn’t happen that way. The only reason the Berlin Wall fell was because of pressure from the US, Briton and the Vatican. NOT the people from within.
The tea party movement fell. WE did not get a conservative candidate in. Remember 2010? No matter who the GOP put up, we defeated them. NOW we are blaming the GOP? It’s US.
People need to wake up, or as my Slovak Priest says, “They will roll tanks down the street and you will stare wide eyed wondering what happened.”
eh, these people are big-time free downers, so you ain’t that far off there, NMM
I’m afraid for my daughters.
Got a couple myself, and I agree. It may seem fun to play awesome keyboard revolutionary for others, but I can’t risk four years of a muslim-sympathethic scumball irreversibly destroying my girls’ home just because I feel like taking my ball and running home.
“I swear, some people arent paying attention.”
NO, you arent’ paying attention. This ABO nonsense that, out of “irrational” and “exagerated” fear of Obama, will help Romney and destroy conservatism doesn’t wash. I have faith in the strength of our Republic. Even Obama can’t destroy it. Holding ground of conservatism is more important than replacing Obama. Until the GOPe is brought down, we are in serious trouble.
Preaching ABO is just being a Romneybott!
“This ABO nonsense that, out of irrational and exagerated fear of Obama”...
Fear of Obama (and his communist agenda) is irrational?
“Fear of Obama (and his communist agenda) is irrational?”
Yes, if you are so stupid to think he (Obama) can bring down our republic...it won’t happen. All you are doing is being a Romneybott, but NOT admitting it.
It is more important for conservatives to take a principled stand against the GOPe and force them to stop backing Romney, et. al. The conservative agenda will actually be hurt by a Romney administration...as will the country. IF you want to be afraid of something, realize the danger Romney presents. He is no better than Mr. Obama.
When are you freaks going to understand that ABO doesn’t fly on this forum?
