An Important Endorsement for Newt in New Hampshire

The momentum of Speaker Gingrich continues! Yesterday he received the coveted endorsement of the New Hampshire Union-Leader. In case you didn’t know, the publication has a history of endorsing candidates who go on to win the New Hampshire primary.

America is at a crucial crossroads. It is not going to be enough to merely replace Barack Obama next year. We are in critical need of the innovative, forward-looking strategy and positive leadership that Gingrich has shown he is capable of providing.

He did so with the Contract with America. He did it in bringing in the first Republican House in 40 years and by forging balanced budgets and even a surplus despite the political challenge of dealing with a Democratic President. A lot of candidates say they’re going to improve Washington. Newt Gingrich has actually done that, and in this race he offers the best shot of doing it again.

We sympathize with the many people we have heard from, both here and across the country, who remain unsure of their choice this close to the primary. It is understandable. Our nation is in peril, yet much of the attention has been focused on fluff, silliness and each candidate’s minor miscues.

Truth be known, many in the liberal media are belittling the Republican candidates because they don’t want any of them to be taken as a serious challenger to their man, Obama.

Readers of the Union Leader and Sunday News know that we don’t back candidates based on popularity polls or big-shot backers. We look for conservatives of courage and conviction who are independent-minded, grounded in their core beliefs about this nation and its people, and best equipped for the job.

Yes, Newt has the experience we need and the conservative credentials that are vital to putting this country back on track. That’s why I endorsed Newt and that’s why many across the country are joining Newt too. The New Hampshire Union-Leader notes that while Newt is not a perfect candidate, that “Republican primary voters too often make the mistake of preferring an unattainable ideal to the best candidate who is actually running.” I agree 100 percent. I’ve seen it throughout this entire campaign season, especially with bloggers who picked a horse early on, decided he or she was the only one who measured up, and then called every other candidate a RINO.

We can win with Newt. I’m sure of it. I’m glad to see  that with his rise in the polls others are starting to give him another look.

    “We look for conservatives of courage and conviction who are independent-minded, grounded in their core beliefs about this nation and its people, and best equipped for the job.”

    How much courage did it take to run out on two wives? How much courage did it take to resign from the House of Representitives? How much courage did it take to sit down on that couch and make that commercial with pelosi?

    Face it. Newt is a quitter. He will quit on conservatives again. History is on my side.

        I agree with you Neo. Newt is a very smart person. When it comes to talking. However, when it comes time to walk, he’s not so good.

        This is not to say that he would be a bad president. This is to say that we need to beware what we vote for. There is still time for another flavor of the month.

    What about the millions Newt made as an “historian” for Freddy Mac? Or does that count? He also acted as a “historian: for medical insurance companies? Who knew that the new word for “lobbiest” is now “historian”? Newt has a lot of baggage that will be brought to the forefront if he is the nominee. I wonder how well he is going to do with the evangelistic groups and the T-Partiers.

    • Green Mountain Boy November 28, 2011 / 2:14 pm

      Sunny, at least that baggage WILL come to the forefront. That baggage will get discussed. Would you care to discuss bams college grades? Would you care to discuss any of bams history at all?

      • James November 28, 2011 / 2:37 pm

        Sure, what part of it you want to talk about?

        GMB, he graduated Manga Cum Laude from Harvard Law School. That tells me he was in the top 1% of his class grade-wise. It would be hard enough to graduate from Harvard Law, but to graduate with honors indicates he made straight As. As much as I know you wished he had terrible grades, there is nothing in his history to indicate that to be the case. Even if he got preferential treatment getting into an ivy league school due to his race, he would still be expected to perform and make the grades to stay in. He was also elected the President of Harvard Law Review, and although it is unusual for someone on Law Review to not publish in the Law Journal of the law school, only the top students are allowed to be a part of this organization. I believe his college grades were equally stellar as he would not even been considered for admittance to Harvard Law had his college grades not been excellent and had he not scored high on his LSAT. That is just my opinion. If you have evidence to the contrary, please provide.

        Not too bitter, huh, neocon? No proof of what you write, but you write it daily. So, in your mind it is true. Rather sad you cannot deal with reality and truth.

      • Green Mountain Boy November 28, 2011 / 3:23 pm

        The operative words here Sunny are “you believe” and “tells me”. These are not proof of anything. What were his grades? Why will he not release them? What could be so possibly damaging that making his grades public is not an option.

        If this was a conservative, would you be demanding that his grades be released? In my opinion yes you would.

      • James November 28, 2011 / 3:58 pm

        GMB,

        The operative words here Sunny are “you believe” and “tells me”. These are not proof of anything.

        Proof is that he graduated from Harvard. Or are they lying to?

        What were his grades?

        Do his grades make a difference to you? Did it matter to you what the grades of W. Bush or his father or Clinton were when they were in office? I am curious to know if you ONLY are worried about this President’s grades.

        Why will he not release them?

        He won’t release them because he doesn’t have to. They are HIS grades. He didn’t get elected on the condition he release the grades. Many presidents have not released grades. Who cares?

        What could be so possibly damaging that making his grades public is not an option.

        Nothing at all. Not everything is a conspiracy GMB. Does the President not have a right to not release his grades?

        If this was a conservative, would you be demanding that his grades be released? In my opinion yes you would.

        You’d be wrong. I didn’t care for Reagans grades, or Bush Sr. grades, or W. Bush’s grades. They all had good qualities and weaknesses like anyone else.

        Again, not everything is a conspiracy theory. Crawl out from under your rock.

    Newt at the very least offers new 21st century solutions to our current problems, while Obama can only reach back for more of the same old, failed policies of government spending, tax the rich, blah, blah, blah. It’s time we think differently about our approach to resolving problems, and that’s what Newt brings to the table. We have all seen, and all currently living, what liberal policies bring about, so it’s definitely time we try a new approach.

    • James November 28, 2011 / 3:59 pm

      Newt has ZERO chance of being the nominee. Bank on it. the Establishment GOP will nominate Romney and he will be the one.

    If I was Obama and a pile of conspiracy theorist idiots wanted me to release any information at all, I would do exactly as he has done. When your political opponants act like morons don’t do anything to make them stop. Except when you have a really great opportunity to make Trump look even stupider, then go for it.

        You really are a sick man. What hatred. No proof just slander. And you consider yourself a Christian? Again, No proof of anything you write. You are so consumed with hate I do not know how you face each day. I was not a fan of GW Bush but I sure didn’t hate him. I just didn’t like his policies. Obama is neither a Marxist nor a Muslim. He is as much a Christian as you or I – and probably more of a Christian than you.

  5. Sunny November 28, 2011 / 4:54 pm

    And further Neo, I have no problem with Bernie Sanders being a Socialist. He admits that he is and his constituents continue to keep him in office. As for Obama campaigning for him, so what? You get your monthly governmental checks – and believe me, they are a part of the socialist system we have in the US. You do not seem to have a problem with that. You are no more entitled to such payments as anyone else, yet you gladly take them and live off the government – and will probably draw much more from these programs than you ever put into them. You are a hypocrite. And you do not know the truth from a lie. You do not get much respect from the people who post here – most consider you ignorant, a liar and even worse. So much to be proud of, huh? To think that you might behave as an adult is not even a consideration any more. Over the years you have continued to post the same garbage week after week – with the same juvenile name calling. For someone in their 60s one would think you could be a little more adult.

    scummy

    refute it or STFU

    Neo

    What are you going to do to make me refute anything big bad neo???? Such a tough guy. And STFU? Really? A very mature answer. But I expect nothing less from you.

    Excellent thinking patriot. These are the type of things that really matter.

    Small minds discuss people
    Average minds discuss issues
    Great minds discuss ideas

    Guess where you fit on the scale?

    • patriotdad1 November 28, 2011 / 8:05 pm

      But Larry Sinclair matters? Is neocon1 immune from judgement according to your scale of worthiness?

  9. Cluster November 28, 2011 / 6:50 pm

    I would like to ask one of our resident liberals what Obama’s agenda will be for his possible second term. What great new ideas does he have to ignite this economy? What ideas does he have to reform entitlements, and how will he shape our immigration policy. I look forward to your response.
