Why Gingrich's N.H. endorsement is a bigger deal than it seems

Washington (CNN) - The timing couldn't have been better for Newt Gingrich.

He's under fire from some of his rivals for the GOP presidential nomination and from some top conservative voices for suggesting at the CNN Republican debate last week that there should be a "path to legality" for some illegal immigrants. But the former House speaker got a shot in the arm in the form of the New Hampshire Union Leader's endorsement.

    Any endorsement of Newt Gingrich is a big deal in that it shows Republicans have forsaken character and honesty in a candidate in favor of greed and materialism. Newt's record could never get support from voters who actually care about personal honor and family values. Newt is a poster child for the modern Republican – much unlike the image of Barry Goldwater.

    Gingrich will not win the nomination. He flip flops just as much as Willard. He DID propose amnesty for illiegal immigrants who have been here for upwards of 20 years. That's a no no in ConservaFASCIST politics. As far as New Hampshire goes, don't count Huntsman out.

    "Gingrich may end up being the Romney alternative in Iowa, and "that could catapult him into a mano-a-mano death match with Romney in the Granite State."

    LOL. You just can't make this stuff up.

    Everyone knows the South is going to decide who gets the GOP nod, so this endorsement means nothing. Florida is a much better gauge of support: why is there no focus on Florida?
