    Romney saved businesses by making them viable rather than obtaining government loans before going bankrupt and adding to the public debt as in Solyndra and the Obama model. Romney saved jobs. Obama has lost jobs. Now Romney is running against a president who has failed economic development policies, has perfected White House pay-for-access, conflicting energy policies, lied about ridding lobbyists from his administration, promoted crony capitalism, incurred more sovereign debt than any other president while failing to keep his campaign promise to reduce the federal debt by one-half in his first term and who will have "great flexibility" (read etch-a-sketch) after the election. Thankfully Romney is not Gingrich and Newt's lack of endorsement is another way of saying that. It is good news for Mitt.

    Gingrich should have bowed out a long time ago and not robbed Mitt Romney of the extra delegates. He didn't have a prayer because many do not trust him. I used to have a great deal of respect for Newt but that has changed...he would be better off out of the limelight and doing something else. He can blame no one but himself.

    "Good for you, Newt. If I were you, I wouldn't endorse a man who "apparently looted the companies, left people unemployed and walked off with millions of dollars," either."

    It is going to be a long hot summer. Let's see what the voters have to say about Mr. Romney in November. Who knows? Come Novemeber the liberals may want to seek Jesus and beg for a miracle.

    Gingrich is morally bankrupt while stealing away people's dignity. Just ask the women in his life. Endorsement from Gingrich? No thanks.

    Newt won't endorse Romney unless Romney bails him out of debt. Newt is for sale to the highest bidder.

    Who was Newt talking about in the above quote about taking all the money and then declaring bankruptcy?

    How long has it been since Newt Gingrich's health care think tank filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy? Was Newt
    talking about himself or Romney?

    How about we compare how many companies Romney has saved and built to the number Newt has had built or managed into greatness?

    Good for you, Newt. If I were you, I wouldn't endorse a man who "apparently looted the companies, left people unemployed and walked off with millions of dollars," either.

    Newt continued: "Look, I'm for capitalism, [but] if somebody comes in takes all the money out of your company, and then leaves you bankrupt while they go off with millions, that's not traditional capitalism."

    Gingrich was challenged on his attack: "I want to beg you to redirect and go after his obvious disingenuousness about his conservatism and lay off the corporatist versus the free market."

    Even those who defend Romney's ruthless and heartless capitalism can only do so with backhand insults!

    And what about Romney's appeal to "independent" moderates? Ask Mitt Romney’s choice of a foreign policy spokesman Richard Grenell, who is not only openly gay and pro-same-sex marriage, but finally gave in to the anti-gay sentiment in Romney's campaign, and resigned!

    "Basically, Ric got Etch-A-Sketched."
