Newt Gingrich, before enthusiastic but not huge Tampa crowd, asks supporters for help

Newt Gingrich -– who is traveling around Florida by plane and was preceded on the stage by Michael Reagan and Herman Cain -- addressed a small but enthusiastic crowd at an airplane hangar at Tampa Jet Center. His campaign had curtained off two-thirds of the hangar, but the crowd didn't fill the remaining third.

He took the stage nearly two hours late, but offered no explanation-– ripping quickly into rival Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama.

Gingrich called Tuesday a "really, really big day" said a late poll has him tied with Romney at 35-35 -– but didn't name the poll. (Here's the poll, according to his campaign, from the Fort Myers News-Press.) He said he's still fighting after reports of his campaign's demise last summer and a well-financed, well-organized Romney assault. He said Romney has "spent $17.5 million on falsehoods.”

He closed with an appeal for help.

"We really need your help: We need you on Facebook, we need you Twittering, if that's what you do, we need you on e-mail," he said. "We need you calling people, and, to show I'm old-fashioned, we need you talking face to face..."

Gingrich said he's carrying the conservative banner.

"We have a pretty good understanding of what we stand for, the declaration of independence, the Constitution, the Federalist papers.... Limited, effective government...judges who obey the Constitution.

"With your help we're going to win a great victory tomorrow and send a great signal to George Soros, Goldman Sachs...money power can't buy people power."

He said Obama's re-election would "permanently weaken" the U.S. and that he's best prepared to defeat him because of his conservatism and debating skills. And he assailed what he called Obama's "attacks on religion," referencing the healthcare rules regarding contraception for religious institutions.

Gingrich also said Romney has a similar record and accused Romney on imposing regulations on Catholic churches and of cutting off kosher meals for Jewish patients on Medicare "to save $5 a day."

"We need a government that respects our religion," he said, adding that he's tired of being told he has to respect other religions. He said Soros -– the liberal financier -– was quoted in a "European"publication over the weekend as saying that "There's really no difference between Obama and Romney; I'm comfortable with either one. Now, Gingrich that would be real change."

"George Soros is right. I am real change, that's why the establishment is terrified. We will change things."

He singled out as an example of American ingenuity a guy in the audience who had made a poster with pictures of Obama and Romney with the caption:  "Mitt no mistake: Obamacare is Romneycare."

"I love people power, not money power and I think people power will win," Gingrich said.

He also repeated his call to replace Florida Sen. Bill Nelson "with a conservative."

He vowed his first days in office to scrap Obama's "czars," repeal Obama’s healthcare legislation, Dodd-Frank, Sarbanes-Oxley "and that's just for openers." He repeated his pledge to move the U.S. embassy in Israel, says he'd authorize the building of the Keystone pipeline.

And he raised the "challenge of radical muslims" and said the administration "refuses to talk honestly about the threat." Gingrich said he wouldn't allow Sharia law in us courts -– a favorite conservative rallying cry.

The audience was packed with Gingrich fans -– including Stephen VanderGast, 37, of Valrico, who brought his 4-year-old sons, Samuel and Ian. They carried handmade "Future Astronauts for Newt"signs.

"He's the best candidate to take on Obama -- he's brilliant,” said VanderGast, who said he'd admired Gingrich since his days as House Speaker. He said he's "cautiously optimistic" about a Gingrich victory in Florida, but would urge the candidate to keep going.

"The more he stays and makes his point, articulates his message, the more people will respond," VanderGast said.

Romney’s Mormon Problem

READ IT SPREAD IT- ROMNEY IS NOT ELECTABLE !
investigate for yourself

o give some examples. The founder of the church, one Joseph Smith, was a fraud and conjurer well known to the authorities of upstate New York. He claimed to have been shown some gold plates on which a new revelation was inscribed in no known language. He then qualified as the sole translator of this language. (The entire story is related in Fawn Brodie’s biography, No Man Knows My History.*

Is  the nomination for SALE to the richest  offeror ?  Sadly, It seems to be so.
Romney is using the overwhelming force that millions can buy to "just grinding Newt down".
Congressmen  and forces in the  GOP establishment have  fanned out across the 
state to bring  Gingrich down. BUT  they do not count in " WE THE PEOPLE" we, will level the field !  We will not let  " I think if Romney wins this, it is over  for Newt" ( John McLaughlin, veteran  Republican Pollster )
WE THE PEOPLE MUST  give the victory to  DESERVING LION  Newt  GINGRICH
The absolute truth is  that Obama  has no skills as a true debater. he relies  on his  teleprompter !  and newt is a gifted lion debater ! OBAMA  is  applying
reverse psychology ... he wants to  face  the plastic WILLARD (Ken)  ROMNEY !!
and then  play  the  RACE CARD :   white  Ken  vs, black Ken.
WILLARD will be lost.

Men on the Moon!
Mormon Prophets claim
the moon is inhabited

As one of the foundational powerbrokers of the Mormon Cult, Romney, who serves as a BISHOP in the Mormon Cult, has declared that he loves his "church" and will never leave the Mormon Cult his family has been tied to for generations. In fact, tax returns show that Romney has given millions of dollars to the Mormon Cult in just the last year alone.

Here is what Romney cult teaches about the moon: President Brigham Young not only taught the moon was inhabited, but the SUN as well. In a sermon delivered in the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, President Young made these unbelievable statements: "Who can tell us of the inhabitants of this little planet that shines of an evening, called the moon?...when you inquire about the inhabitants of that sphere you find that the most learned are as ignorant in regard to them as the ignorant of their fellows. So it is in regard to the inhabitants of the sun. Do you think it is inhabited? I rather think it is. Do you think there is any life there? No question of it; it was not made in vain." (Journal of Discourses, vol. 13, p. 271)

The republican nomination is being bought !! MORMON BISHOP Romney will lose to Obama. FOR SURE !
Research before you vote. It is a reasonable request !
Rev. O’Neal Dozier, the conservative black pastor of Pompano Beach’s Worldwide Christian Center said:
“Blacks are not going to vote for anyone of the Mormon faith,” Dozier said. “The book of Mormon says the Negro skin is cursed.”...
