NORTH CHARLESTON, SC - JANUARY 19: Republican ...POLITICO reports:

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — Texas Gov. Rick Perry ended his campaign for president Thursday morning and endorsed Newt Gingrich.

“I believe Newt is a conservative visionary who can transform this country,” Perry said.

Making what he called a “strategic retreat,” the Texan obliquely referred to Gingrich’s checkered personal life just hours before an interview with the former House speaker’s second wife was to speak out in a TV interview.

“Newt is not perfect, but who among us is?” said Perry.

Citing his Christian faith, Perry said of Gingrich: “I believe in the power of redemption.”

Perry kept an upbeat note as he ended his campaign. He talked about his plan for jobs, his commitment to conservative principles, his time in the Air Force and his roots in Paint Creek, Texas. He thanked his staff, supporters and family throughout the event.

  1. Maybe Rick was having memory problems again when he decided to endorse Newt.  😉

    Someone ought to make a list of all the lame pat answers floating around out there:

    No one’s perfect.
    I believe in forgiveness.
    Judge not!…

    The way I see it, once she reaches 35, Casey Anthony would make a fine candidate for President!  I mean, who among us hasn’t sinned?  And who are we to judge her?  Besides, we don’t even know all the facts.  I’m sure that poor girl hasn’t done anything that God couldn’t forgive her for.

    Casey Anthony 2024!!!!!!!
