Chuck Norris Endorses Newt Gingrich for President

Truth rating: 10



Chuck Norris, considered by some as the most valuable Republican celebrity endorser, has thrown his support behind Newt Gingrich.

President Obama has tried and failed miserably to fix our economy,” writes Norris in a new column for the conservative site WND, adding, “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,” notes Norris, alluding to Gingrich’s personal foibles.

“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.”

That’s why, says Norris, “My wife, Gena, and I, we sincerely believe former Speaker Newt Gingrich… deserves our endorsement and vote.”

He goes on to explain, “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.”

The action star concludes that he and his wife have “committed the rest of our lives to help Old Glory rise again to her heights of splendor. And that is why we are endorsing and standing with Newt Gingrich, because we believe he can lead all of us who have committed to the same.”
