    How can we conservatives tolerate Romney's campaign messages which are devoid of specific plans and full of cheerleading sound bites like "I'll fix all the problems when elected"? These empty sound bites are so easy for Obama to attack. On the other hand, Obama would have a very difficult time attacking the fact-filled plans of Newt Gingrich. See the Cspan link below. http://www.c-span.org/Campaign2012/Events/Newt-Gingrich-Delivers-Policy-Speech-in-Delaware/10737429794/ Come on Conservatives! Before it is too late, get behind Newt for President.

    Alan Keyes wrote: As I anticipated, “the elitist machinations of the sham party system are predictably moving America toward another false choice between an avowed socialist Democrat and a prevaricating socialist Republican.” Marco Rubio’s endorsement of Mitt Romney kicks off an orchestrated wavelet of “influential” endorsements, signaling an end to the sham competition that culminated in a not very credible “dramatic face-off” between Romney and one of his 2008 cheerleaders, Rick Santorum... The “lesser evil” approach guarantees the triumph of wrong. So in choosing between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama we are like the cornered target of the hit man...

    - During a meeting with 18 Delaware Tea Party leaders here on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich lambasted The Fox News Channel, accusing the cable news network that employed him as recently as last year of having been in the tank for Mitt Romney from the beginning of the Republican presidential fight and singling out former colleagues for attacking him out of what he characterized as personal jealousy. “I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through,” Gingrich said during the private meeting at Wesley College to which RealClearPolitics was granted access. “In our experience, Callista and I both believe...

    We conservatives should be discussing and debating Newt Gingrich's ideas about US Energy Independence via Oil and Gas drilling and about Newt's Personal Social Security ideas. Personally, I would like the news media to talk about Newt's energy and social security ideas for the GOP Platform more than talking about the VP chances for Nikki Haley, governor of SC. Newt's continued candidacy allows we conservatives to continue talking about new ideas and plans instead of talking about superficial, "student council" concepts. Idea do matter.

    (RALEIGH) -- Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is spending a lot of time in North Carolina this week. The former House Speaker told supporters in Raleigh on Monday that he is staying in the race to influence the party's platform. Even though Gingrich is in third place and his poll numbers are shrinking, he said he is staying in the race to influence the party's platform. At the same time, he explained why he thinks frontrunner Mitt Romney will win the nomination and the White House. "What I said was compared to Barack Obama he is conservative enough. But the...

I don't know if he had internal polling numbers that looked bad in Pennsylvania. I don't know if it's money. I don't know if it's the accumulation of pressure on him from the establishment.

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s campaign Monday began morphing into less of a pursuit of the presidency and more into an effort to shape the Republican platform and to influence the discussion in the fall elections. Campaigning in Raleigh, Gingrich said he planned to battle front-runner Mitt Romney in North Carolina’s May 8 primary and all the way to the GOP convention in Tampa, Fla., but conceded the prospects of overtaking the former Massachusetts governor were not bright. But he said Republicans still face serious choices at the convention and into the fall — whether the GOP...

Friess, who was in Washington to accept an award from the Horatio Alger Association, said he had yet to discuss his planned shift in allegiance with Romney’s campaign campaign or the Washington-based super PAC supporting it.

Obama further questioned the legitimacy of “unelected” and “activist” judges. Conservatives went crazy! How could the President criticize the authority of the Supreme Court?

    Mitt Romney’s slow but seemingly successful trudge to the GOP nomination aside, President Obama is a virtual lock to win a second term, according to a blockbuster election analysis by Ipsos. The bottom line, said Ipsos’ polling director Clifford Young: If Obama’s weak approval rating stays at 47 percent, there is an 85 percent chance he wins reelection. Should it rise to 50 percent or better, which is the goal of the Obama-Biden campaign, he stands a 99 percent chance of winning. “The Republican primaries are nothing more than an interesting side-show to an eventual Obama victory,” said Young, managing...

  • ‘Liberated’ from the Tea Party?

    In many ways, the story of the 2012 Republican primary has been the inability of Mitt Romney to win over more than a third of self-identified “strong Tea Party supporters” or “very conservative” voters. If he had received the support of those voters, even a slim majority of them, the race would almost certainly have been over weeks ago. Where Romney hasn’t yet succeeded with most grassroots conservatives and Tea Partiers, he’s had remarkable success in the past two weeks gaining the support of their leaders... It would seem, then, that everyone associated with Romney’s campaign would avoid saying anything...

    Pledges of support from powerful Republicans last week may have edged Mitt Romney closer to the GOP presidential nomination, but the former Massachusetts governor still struggles to fire the imaginations of most in his party — even the coveted endorsements from former President George H.W. Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida seemed underwhelming in tone. Mr. Rubio and Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, who also endorsed Mr. Romney last week, focused less on his qualifications for the presidency than on the vulnerabilities of President Obama. “[Mr. Romney‘s] challenge, assuming he gets the nomination, is to create more enthusiasm among...

    Newt Gingrich unveiled a new message to Mitt Romney Monday morning during a campaign stop in Maryland: if the former Massachusetts governor does become the Republican nominee, pick a conservative platform. But speaking on the eve of three primaries that could potentially seal the Republican nomination in Romney’s favor, Gingrich vowed to only exit the race if a candidate gets the required delegates. ““I will be going to Tampa, Callista and I will both be going to Tampa, because we are going to fight for a conservative platform,“ Gingrich said. “He [Romney] has to win 1,144 uncontested delegates. At that...
  • Gingrich: I Can Support Santorum, Talk of Shared Ticket to Stop Romney

    There is growing talk that if former House Speaker Newt Gingrich drops out of the race and "suspends" his campaign, he may throw his support behind Rick Santorum in an effort to deny Mitt Romney the GOP nomination. And, for the moment, Gingrich is not yielding to the slew of establishment endorsements for Mitt Romney. Gingrich told CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday that Romney has no lock on the nomination and the math doesn't show him getting the 1,144 delegates easily to clinch the nomination. A leading Gingrich campaign official also suggested this weekend that their camp may work...
  • Gingrich: Israelis Should Be Worried About Obama

    CBS News) Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said President Obama's comments about having more "flexibility" should be a sign of concern for allies, including Israel. "People have to worry about when a president who has already proven he is a radical says to a Russian president, 'Give me some space so I can get re-elected because then I'll have real flexibility' - you have to wonder," Gingrich said on CBS News' "Face the Nation." Gingrich told host Bob Schieffer that "you also have to ask yourself how many foreign leaders has he said that to without an open mic. How...

    ... I am deeply concerned... The dream called American is threatened. I share the growing sense that it is not because the American people have lost that dream, but, at least partially, because we have the wrong leaders in political office... I am disturbed to once again hear and read the mantra of the main stream media that the 2012 Presidential campaign is over. You know the drill; that Mitt Romney is the nominee to face President Obama and anyone who feels differently should stop their efforts and sing the song of the establishment... The lyrics have gone through revisions....

    Go to Cspan.org and watch the 3 GOP candidates speak at the Wisconsin Faith and Freedom Rally. Do you agree with me that Newt Gingrich knocked out of the park, while Santorum continues with his whining how he is better than Romney and Romney tells stories about senior citizens who cannot retire? Believe me, we may be in trouble with either Santorum or Romney. Newt would beat Obama in a landslide.
