Newt Gingrich’s allies in Congress switch to Mitt Romney

No surprise here, but U.S. Rep. Tom Price, R-Roswell, just sent out an email announcing that, with their man about the exit the race, House members who had backed former Georgia congressman Newt Gingrich are now lining up behind Mitt Romney.

In addition to Price, they include Jack Kingston of Savannah, Phil Gingrey of Marietta, Austin Scott of Tifton and Lynn Westmoreland of Coweta County.

From their statement:

“After a hard fought primary season, Governor Romney has emerged as our nominee for president. We enthusiastically commit our support for Governor Romney. America cannot afford four more years of President Obama’s divisive and failed leadership that continues to punish entrepreneurship, pick winners and losers in our economy, and ignore our fiscal crisis.”

There you go Jim ranting about my good buddy Newt and focusing undue attention to him. Have you talked about how awesome low taxes are lately? Have you mentioned or compared me to Loius XXXI lately? I am the Sun King.

I am the State. I am the Center. I am the World. I am the Children.

Now comes the time for all good men to come to the aid of their candidate.

4 losers who never gave a damn about conservative principles in the first place. Now they show their true colors by switching to the Obama/Romney team. Yes, Obama/Romney because they are both basically the same candidate. 4 years ago Goldman Sachs chose Obama to be president and now they are working to choose Romney. Some day americans will get the banking/finance industry out of their govenrment. They could do it this year by electing Ron Paul, but we will have to wait until Mitt loses the nomination to see what becomes of that choice.

Jump from Gingrich to Romney? As usual, rats quickly abandon a sinking ship. That includes Congressional Rats of which there are far too many. Guess they have high hopes of getting a few head pats if he wins in November. Too bad they can’t get real opposition and get dumped on their behinds. This holds true for both parties! The country would be better off.if they only went into session once in twenty years for thirty minutes.
