Rick Perry to endorse Newt Gingrich

According to Carl Cameron and Chuck Todd, Perry will drop, but FNC says he will also endorse the Newtster. Burns & Haberman have a write-up.

He tried bashing gays in Iowa.

He tried race baiting in South Carolina, leading a charge on a new civil war on behalf of religion.

But he just doesn’t have the national chops.

Rick Perry is reportedly dropping out on quite a news day for the men who could benefit from his departure.

Marianne Gingrich in an interview is rumored, according to Fox News Channel, to say that Newt’s a wannabe swinger. If that image doesn’t launch your gag reflex nothing will. Such salacious sniping from an ex-wife seems made for South Carolina.

Then you have Rick Santorum “winning” Iowa, after a recount in that state. Oh, but lily-livered Republicans in that state won’t give it to him.

It leaves Mitt Cayman Cash Romney up against it, because the gaffes of this guy, as I’ve written before, are starting to pile up high. If Republicans start doubting Cayman Cash Mitt’s electability, what else does he have?

Looking at November, if you can’t beat Pres. Obama, you might as well beat him up and Newt’s the guy who can do that best.

Momentum Newt.

Who’s bringing the beer for tonight’s CNN debate?

    Maybe the country, even Republicans, are tired of his sort. One can hope.

      When you say “his sort,” that could apply to SO many. ;-)

      Tea Partiers and right-wingers in South Carolina relying on the liberal media? HA! The more salacious the charges the less likely it will land.

      Let’s also remember that establishment Republicans HATE Gingrich at this point.  The entire field is festering in the light of day, with gafferrific Mitt channeling the tic that took down his dad.

        from what I know of Mitt’s father was he had some real principles ie civil rights. he walked out on the 64 convention against goldwater’s right wingism. this mitt romney keeps saying his dad is his hero. but he aint his dad for sure.

          George Romney also released 12 years of taxes.

          But he will be remembered for his 1967 I-was-brainwashed flameout.  It’s why Romney is scared to death of gaffes, with this freezing him up to make more of them than he can afford.  Lately Cayman Cash Mitt has been a veritable comedy to watch.

            Ah yes, the “brainwashed” moment that turned the elder Romney into a national joke. Wow, what a blast from the past. Weird how one word can absolutely ruin a man or women in politics for life.

    One more out (or more accurately, one Rick Perry finally acknowledging reality) … almost there, Mitt.

      Perry has been a political zombie, the walking dead, for quite a while. We will not see him on the national stage again. But he one for the ages, the quick rise and the even quicker cratering of Rick Perry–oops does not quite cover it; but close enough, eh?

    Sorry Taylor no beer in my possession, but I do have some very nice Mosel wines ready to uncork; will that work? Perhaps a Zeller Schwarze Katz or a Liebfraumilch?

    I’m just glad this clown is going to go back to Texas. I feel sorry for all of you in Texas who don’t share his radical ideology.
