    It's only fitting that he and Mitt combine forces to get rid of the middle class and add on to the list of poor Americans at the same time.

    So much for all of the back kissing that Gingrich did with Trump. Can hardly wait to read about Trump’s reasoning. Ha! Not so sure Romney won anything by this endorsement other than now both he and Newt are tied with the whack jobs endorsing each of them. In addition to his own gaffes, Romney is now stuck with what is sure to be many from Trump. At least we won’t have to put up with the circus of a potential Trump campaign. Ha! Like he would ever survive the scrutiny.

    A. Who cares! and B. So according to Donald Trump, he would get into the race if the "Right Candidate" didn't win the primary but he wouldn't say who the right candidate is, until they all but won. Considering how much of a nutty 'Obama's a muslim' conservative he is, shouldn't Newt be the 'right candidate' ?? If you're trying to save face Donald, just cover it with your hair.

    The Republican Party is in a state of transition. The hard liners are making a push for leadership, and they are winning.

    Wow. Donald Trump endorses Romney. Is that supposed to help? I guess when such a warm and charming man such as Trump thinks Romney is the best choice, he must be. As a middle class American I know that I wait with bated breath for such pronouncements from someone like Donald Trump. He HAS to be in everybody's big three of social changers: 1)Jesus of Nazareth; 2) Gandhi; and 3) Donald Trump.

    First it was Newt, now it's MItt.

    Would the Donald either make up his combed-over (out of his) mind, or otherwise shut up and go away?

  25. wow
