Skip to comments.Gingrich to Georgia GOP: Let's rally around Romney
Posted on 05/19/2012 5:59:36 PM PDT by Innovative
Newt Gingrich took the stage at the Georgia Republican Party state convention on Saturday wearing a Mitt Romney sticker, focusing his attacks on President Barack Obama and attempting to energize the crowd around his former Republican rival.
"To every conservative, everywhere in America: When your choice on the one hand is Barack Obama, and your choice on the other hand is Mitt Romney, no serious conservative could possibly believe that electing Barack Obama is acceptable ... for America."

WADR, you seem to be going out of your way to anger conservatives. I would like to know how that would help your candidate get elected this November? Frankly, silence on the matter would indeed get the hold your nose and vote against Obama crowd out more than such remonstrations. The outstanding question post-election though (assuming a Romney win) is just how the agenda of the left will be stopped now that yet another left-supporting candidate has been voted into the most powerful office in the land. Got an answer that does not involve pure rhetoric and is based on logic? The conservatives here (and across the USA) are very, very tired of pandering politicians, having voted for them decade after decade and seeing the country continue to unabatedly shift further and further lefta move not solely due to Obama, but a concerted effort by a lot of openly-left-wing Democrats and a lot of lying Republicans who pretend to be against it.
So it doesn't really matter who wins. Liberals or Liberals. That's your choice.
Lol. More conservatives for Obama I see.. nice.
So, does this make Newt one of the evil ones now?
It doesn’t make Newt an evil one because many of us know that his position requires this kind of thing. However, it probably makes him physically ill to do it.
The candidate is responsible for attracting the voters, it is a tyrannical idea that a candidate is somehow entitled to votes and that the voter should be blamed for not liking the “right” guy.
I call them that for a good reason. They are some of the most hateful people online. We should have a Dummie Funnies version just for them.
There is no way obama will be reelected. Not gonna happen.
Mitt Romney or anyone else who runs against him will beat obama.
I won't be too surprised if obama isn't the demonrat's candidate in November, but if he is, he'll lose.
If they run someone else, then Romney might have some trouble, but not against obama.
No one is suppressing the Romney vote, most of us anti-Romney FReepers gave up a long time ago telling people how to vote, because there is no-one worth voting for. It is the pro-Romneys who are trying to cajole and assail those who don’t fall into line.
They just don’t have any good arguments.
His documented pro-abortion stance cost 5 votes for him.
They can't vote for pro-aborts either.
If Romney selected Palin as his running mate, would that bring you on board?
Geron would rather our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen answer to an avowed Communist from Kenya for another 4 years. His arrogance in terms of National Security is overshadowed only by his thoughtlessness.
“Gingrich to Georgia GOP: Let’s rally around Romney”
Free Republic to Newt Gingrich: Hell NO!
Raving and ranting and calling people glue sniffers doesn’t advance your argument.
Actually nothing would advance your argument because it is devoid of reason.
1. Romney is for repealing Obamacare.
2. Did it occur to you that maybe Gingrich does have the countrys best interest at heart, unlike some of the cut off your nose to spite your face types around here, who would rather see Obama get reelected and watch the country destroyed, than to act sensibly.”
1. Romney INVENTED Obamacare
2. Did it occur to you that Gingrich is in debt and needs Romney’s money?
Would that make Romney less Romney?
I hope Palin doesn’t come out for Romney. I’d hate to see what some of you would have to say to her.
Oh, wait, she already has. Oh, well. You’ve still got each other.
It’s like saying “let’s give North Korea some Nukes... they’re NOT AS BAD AS IRAN!”
“Sarah would make the pill a whole lot easier to swallow.”
I think she’s had about enough of RINOs at this point.
“Every vote Romney doesnt get is, in effect, a vote for Obama.”
If I vote for Virgil Goode, that’s a vote for Virgil Goode.
It’s pretty easy to understand.
I really could care less about Palin. She hasn’t shown me anything lately to prove that she’s still relevant.
See, my conservative views don’t change based on what other “conservatives” are doing.
The VP choice will not change my opinion one bit
“you seem to be going out of your way to anger conservatives.”
Take it up with Newt. I merely posted what he said:
“To every conservative, everywhere in America: When your choice on the one hand is Barack Obama, and your choice on the other hand is Mitt Romney, no serious conservative could possibly believe that electing Barack Obama is acceptable ... for America.”
In that case, what are you accomplishing?
What are you, even attempting to accomplish?
Oh? This woman will be more perplexed than I am.
Palin just endorsed Ted Cruz here in Texas in his U.S. Senate seat bid, and her nod will almost certainly propel him over a very competitive field.
She's more relevant, influential now than ever.
These are the leaders of the GOP, similar to a Corporation, these are the CEOs, Presidents, vice Presidents, division heads, Managers, and so on, they are career members of the GOP party, it doesn’t surprise me when they endorse their nominee, and get on board.
I agree entirely.
Got news for you the Keynesian socialist globalists with their CFR cabal have already won. It makes no difference who is elected. There will come a point where the patriots the true Americans will act. It is inevitable. And anyone who thinks otherwise is in self-denial..
beat Obama no matter how!!!
take your head out of the ground...there are 2 sides to this election....get out and vote for Romney or stay home and save your pride not our Country.
” a clear-thinking competitor.”
Hee, hee, hee, like the day he signed MassachusettsMandate.
sorry for the soap box....I a trying to stay on this earth till November to cast my vote...and November is my Birthday...what a gift it would be with Omama gone..
thanks for reading this (if you did :-))
>>And please dont come over here from some parallel universe and say Romney hasnt won yet. He has.
There were a lot of people in that room (I was there) who don’t think so. I’m guessing as many as 30% of the people there were Paulites, and they were still trying to work a way to get control of who got sent to Tampa.
I have to say this for them, they have a lot of enthusiasm and organization.
This election shows to be a time in the history of this great country to save it from communism, socialism or let it continue to slide down the path to ruin under Obama and his disgusting administration.
I believe the pendulum has begun to swing back to sanity but it MUST begin at the local level, as we did in 2010. We cannot win this war overnight, but the battles ARE being won from the bottom up. We The People here in Wisconsin are fighting a fantastic battle against the Unions and the Obama thugs and with God's help, with the hard work of the solid conservatives we WILL pull this off. First to Re-Elect Scott Walker on June 5, then pull WI over to Romney in November.
What we do at the local level DOES make a huge difference. So, for all you nay-sayers, take yourselves OUT of the center of your life, get off your couch and get LOCAL conservatives elected. It's our turn in history to do what is right and some of us are doing it.
Here on FR, why do Romney supporters continually let loose in their post’s last paragraph with a disparaging remark against FReepers who do not agree with them? Just like the leftists do. Why is that?
“We say No to Romney “
Saying “No to Romney” IN THE PRIMARIES is one thing. But the primaries are over and now there are only TWO choices: Obama or Romney.
It’s time to face reality, that Obama is going to destroy the US as we know it, if he gets four more years, unconstrained by having to face another election, he will speed up his efforts. Four years from now, it might be too late to try to reverse it.
With Romney, he may or may not do much, but at least we will stop the active work Obama and his minions are doing to destroy the US.
tsowellfan was being sarcastic, mocking those who rather have Obama reelected, than to face reality and pull the lever for Romney and are feeling self-righteous, while electing Obama.
If Romney is the Republican nominee, perhaps you can get him elected. As explained to me, Free Republic is a stronghold for conservatives, not just a Republican or Romney-operative hangout.
I am not trying to convince you to not vote for R. And I’ve not been trying to shift any blame of any sort to you if R is not nominated and/or elected.
But Romney supporters on FR tend to write in a similar fashion as do the leftists on FR. Don’t appreciate that.
...some Romney supporters...
Are you saying that conservatives prefer Obama over Romney?
I think that trick only works once.
I doubt the Mittster would pick someone who would overshadow him.
Based on his record, that's not his preference for his top lieutenants and underlings.
I answered a FReeper a month or so ago who posed the same scenario. My answer still is no; not even SP as Veep under R. Because the order and balance of the Universe would be off kilter and wobbly if she accepted such an offer.
If Obozo is re-elected....
1. Amnesty to 30-40 million illegals (and DNC voters)
2. SCOTUS gets their 5th Socialist to totally destroy the Constitution
3. Chance for 2016 election is Slim & None....and Slim’s ridin’ out of town
4. Obozo becomes President for life
5. America becomes a hellhole combo of Mexico/Venezuela
If Romney wins we, at least have a 4-year period to begin recovery or get a true Conservative to primary him out in 2016.
Rumsfeld once said “You go to war with the soldiers you have.”
At this point in time, alas, Romney is our soldier to fight Obozo’s communist coup.
