Chuck Norris endorses Newt Gingrich, too

posted at 6:00 pm on January 20, 2012 by Tina Korbe

According to a poll of National Journal insiders, this is the most coveted Republican endorsement of all — and no wonder. Chuck Norris’ endorsement of Mike Huckabee in 2008 helped to propel the former Arkansas governor to the top tier of presidential candidates. That oh-so-memorable “Chuck Norris approved” ad is still a fan favorite.

This election cycle, Norris has decided to throw his weight behind Newt Gingrich. In a newly published column on WND.com, Norris outlined why he’s chosen to support the former Speaker of the House:

[N]ow is not the time to be mincing through minutiae and infighting via typical partisan battles. Rome is burning, and we need to appoint the best firemen possible to rush in and put out her fury. What’s critical at this point is to appoint a commander in chief who can clearly lead America to a more solvent and secure future.

No man or candidate is perfect. We all have skeletons in our closet. If buried bones became unforgivable bones of contention, the world would never know or will never know another Benjamin Franklin, King David and others like them. We must remember that we’re electing a president, not a pastor or pope. And with the mainstream media and a billion-dollar Obama campaign coffer on the president’s side, we need a veteran of political war who has already fought Goliath, because he will be facing Goliath’s bigger brother. …

For my wife, Gena, and I, we sincerely believe former Speaker Newt Gingrich is the answer to most of those questions and deserves our endorsement and vote.

We agree with our friend and governor of the great state of Texas, Rick Perry, when he suspended his campaign and endorsed Gingrich, that Newt “has the heart of a conservative reformer.” We believe Newt’s experience, leadership, knowledge, wisdom, faith and even humility to learn from his failures (personal and public) can return America to her glory days. And he is the best man left on the battlefield who is able to outwit, outplay and outlast Obama and his campaign machine.

Personally, I think Allen West is the new Chuck Norris. (Seriously, substitute “Allen West” for “Chuck Norris” in your favorite Chuck Norris joke and see if it doesn’t make more sense!) Nevertheless, the Norris endorsement might actually matter more than most endorsements if for no other reason than that even voters who don’t pay close attention to who’s endorsing whom definitely know Norris’ name.

For old times’ sake, here’s the ad on behalf of Mike Huckabee:

Update: Because of a typo, this article originally misattributed the Chuck Norris column to “WMD.com” instead of “WND.com.” Kind of a consequential typo, especially given what the acronym “WMD” actually stands for! My apologies.

Whiskey, tango, foxtrot does Palin have to do with this? You need to seek professional help for your PDS obsession.

Does the magic underpants refer to Newt or Romney?

SparkPlug on January 20, 2012 at 6:42 PM

If conservatives nominate Newt Gingrich, they will never have the values and morality argument ever again.

Romney is the best candidate. He’s handsome, smart, rich, has a beautiful family, has business and government experience, has been successful. Geez, wtf is wrong with conservatives?

nonpartisan on January 20, 2012 at 6:36 PM

And he has no moral compass whatsoever, will keep Obamacare permanently and will help continue the leftward lurch of the government against the wishes of its’ people.

We don’t want to become Europe. We value our freedom, our independence and we don’t enjoy leftists telling us who to vote for. Gingrich wasn’t my first choice, but I’ll take him over someone who’s biggest achievement is also Obama’s.

I’m really tired of people saying “So and so can’t get elected. Only my candidate can get elected.”

Who gave you a crystal ball? How the heck do you know that Romney can win?

Maybe both Romney and Newt will lose to Obama. Maybe both of them can win. The fact is, we just don’t know and the polls don’t mean anything this far out. Anything can happen between now and the election.

I see Mitt as a risk, and I see Newt as a risk.

I happen to think Newt can pull it off, maybe even in a bigger way than Mitt. I may be wrong, but it’s a risk I’m willing to take to avoid the godfather of Obamacare as our nominee. There are many things wrong with Newt, but in my book the things wrong with Mitt are much, much bigger.

Galadriel on January 20, 2012 at 6:47 PM

Chuck Norris is 71 years old. Older than Reagan when he was inaugurated for his first time.

That’s how McCain lost in 2008 going away and it’s how Romney’s running his election. He will get destroyed as out of touch, one of the 1%, an elitist who can’t relate to the challenges that America’s citizens are dealing with. It doesn’t matter that the exact same thing can be said about Obama, Obama and the media will push that meme and Romney doesn’t have the testicular fortitude to counter it.

Romney’s “been weighed, been measured, and has been found wanting.”

Todd Palin’s letter endorsing Newt

January 15, 2012

Dear Fellow Conservative:

I’m deeply concerned about our nation’s future. I believe that we must nominate and elect a President candidate this year who will stop America’s slide and fight for the values that made our nation great.

I believe that candidate is Newt Gingrich, and I am proudly supporting him for President. I deeply hope you will, too.

Just like my wife Sarah, Newt tells the American people the truth and what he believes, not what he thinks they want to hear. He doesn’t flip-flop on core issues to advance his political chances.

Like Sarah, Newt can take hits from his opponents and the media, and keep on fighting. He’s tough as nails, and he is still standing today because of the power of his ideas, not because he had the most money!

And when it’s time to stand on the national debate stage this fall, you can’t tell me any other candidate will be able to expose Barack Obama and persuade the voters of the conservative case as powerfully as Newt will!

As an Independent, it’s also important to me that Newt knows how to work with Democrats without giving up on our principles. We can’t afford to nominate a pre- packaged candidate without core beliefs — we need a committed conservative leader who knows how to take on the establishment and create real change!

Newt wrote the Contract with America, balanced the budget four years in a row as Speaker, and reformed welfare. We need his vision and proven leadership, with his record of getting things done, in the White House.

I’m with Newt Gingrich and I would be honored if you would stand with me and cast your vote for Newt in the primary

Yours for America,

Todd Palin

oldyeller on January 20, 2012 at 7:05 PM

Gingrich wasn’t my first choice, but I’ll take him over someone who’s biggest achievement is also Obama’s.

Same could be said about Gingrich. Our choices have been severely limited by the MSM’s designations of who can win and who can’t win. Now we are told that it’s between neocon Gingrich and neocon Romney. Pick whom you deem the lesser of two evils. Big government conservatism or big government conservatism. Fabulous choice. If you want to choose the candidate who has a better chance at beating Obama I’d say it is Romney. He has much less baggage than Newt.

You must not have read the key part at the end. Of course they’ll accuse Newt of the exact same things. The difference is Newt will stick up for himself and call out Obama as well. Romney will just smile and say that we shouldn’t begrudge his success and that it is the American dream.

echosyst on January 20, 2012 at 8:00 PM

Who cares?

I will not be part of a party that will nominate evil to attempt to defeat evil.

If Newt wins I’ll support a Ron Paul 3rd party, regardless of his wacky foreign policy and drug law views.

In WWII we allied with the Soviet Union to defeat Hitler and end the Holocaust. I guess you wouldn’t have supported the US back then either. Sometimes the lesser evil is the only alternative that’s available.

Chuck Norris also endorsed World of Warcraft.
Go figure.

Celebrity enorsement are not that big of deal.

Joe Gargiola for Ford, Vinnie “Two Times” Lasagna for Geraldine Ferraro,for Geraldine Ferraro, Sammy Davis Jr. for Nixon, and the San Diego Chicken for Ford.

Only the Bugs Bunny endorsement of FDR in 1944 seems to have produced any really favorable results.

Actually, the Holocaust was mostly hindsight. We really only allied with the Soviet Union because we were closer to the lands that the Germans invaded than the ones that the Russians did. We really should have gone to war with both of them and wiped them all out.

Tina,

It’s WND.com (World Net Daily) not WMD.com

Wigglesworth on January 20, 2012 at 6:11 PM

If Chuck Norris is writing in it, then it’ll have the power of WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction).

Gladtobehere on January 20, 2012 at 8:11 PM

The difference is Newt will stick up for himself and call out Obama as well. Romney will just smile and say that we shouldn’t begrudge his success and that it is the American dream.

The claim that Romney isn’t calling out Obama is just false. I mean, at least make an effort to sound credible.

As for my being new to this… that was in 1996. I haven’t been new to the political game for a long time.

njrob on January 20, 2012 at 7:47 PM

So you don’t have the excuse of being new to it. Then I guess you’re just not very good at it.

Really? Who won?

Solaratov on January 20, 2012 at 8:21 PM

Romney is the best candidate. He’s handsome, smart, rich, has a beautiful family, has business and government experience, has been successful. Geez, wtf is wrong with conservatives?

nonpartisan on January 20, 2012 at 6:36 PM

Careful, sport. You’re gonna get your keyboard all sticky.

Solaratov on January 20, 2012 at 8:42 PM

Chuck Norris would be cooler if he wasn’t so in the tank for Mike Huckabee who isn’t a conservative at all.

Dr. Tesla on January 20, 2012 at 8:44 PM

…and he was acquitted of that…

jimver on January 20, 2012 at 6:45 PM

Not quite. He was impeached because of that.

In the senate, he was not convicted, though.

It’s actually more complicated than you realize because German persecution of the Jews was well known before we entered the war. I think it did influence the climate of opinion and turned it against Hitler. For example, the atom bomb project started with a letter from Einstein, a committed pacifist and socialist, who was willing to put aside his personal beliefs to stop Hitler from getting an atom bomb. Persecution of the Jews played its part there. There were others too who felt that Hitler was more than just another European conquerer, but a madman out to destroy Western civilization.

Later, by the middle of 1942, stories of mass executions of Jews were coming out of Europe. While the press didn’t play up these stories in the U.S., probably because of the exaggerated claims of German atrocities in WWI, it was known in the US government that a Holocaust had started. Although FDR refused to do anything to stop the killings in the death camps, all the atrocities Hitler committed (against the Russians too) led the leaders of WWII to the belief that Hitler and his government was a monstrous evil that had to be completely destroyed. That was one of the reasons why they demanded an unconditional German surrender.

So while ending German atrocities wasn’t an explicit war goal, I do think it hardened their resolve to get rid of Hitler.

If they could get Mr. Norris in some well-written political ads based upon his entertainment persona, it could really help Gingrich a lot.

But I know better-they’ll just keep showing the same dopey stuff that every pol uses in their campaigns.

Dr. ZhivBlago on January 20, 2012 at 9:08 PM

Almost 200 comments and no HornetSting?…

Gohawgs on January 20, 2012 at 11:28 PM

I can’t speak for anybody else but I will absolutely vote for the GOP nominee, no matter who it is. It’s too bad that the anti-Romney paranoids refuse to make that same commitment.

cicerone on January 20, 2012 at 6:55 PM

So will I. I’m neither anti- nor pro-Romney. What I am is:

ABO: Anybody but Obama

stukinIL4now on January 20, 2012 at 7:20 PM

If this isn’t your position, please stop pretending you are upset with Obama. Anyone whose ego is so fragile that they will “pout and not vote” is a troll of one stripe or another. A lot of the people added during the last two open registrations seem more focused on the number of posts they make than having something to add to a discussion. Please go back to Facebook – it’s where you will be happiest.

Chuck Norris is a nice guy; but he’s not known for his intellect. ‘Nuff said.

America Hates Newt Gingrich.

One idiot endorses another! Gingrich is perceived as the smartest man in the room by the dumbest man in room.

Course, if this same poll substituted Obama, this would be chalked up to racism.
