“It’s my honor and real privilege to endorse Mitt Romney,” Trump said in a brief press conference at his Trump Hotel in Las Vegas. He continued. ”Mitt is smart, he’s sharp, and he’s not going to allow bad things to happen to this country.”

Trump said that he endorsed Mitt Romney because of knowledge on how to get people back to work, and his tough stance on international trade with China.

Despite bad press pertaining to his waffling over the intensity of his attacks toward GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney – and lukewarm receptions in the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire Primary –former House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich arrived in South Carolina with characteristic bravado and energy.

In grand cinematic style, Gingrich and members of his staff, descended the steps from the doors of the South Carolina Statehouse last Thursday, to greet a cheering crowd after a rousing endorsement from former Oklahoma Republican Congressman J.C. Watts.

Gingrich’s address departed from the usual stump speeches expected during such a tight campaign schedule. At the rally, co-hosted by the National Association of Home Builders, entitled “Rally for Home Ownership”, Gingrich reflected on the value of owning a home and his proposals to re-energize the struggling housing market.

Last night, the Iowa Caucus held on to its reputation as an electoral circus with wildly unpredictable results, while politicos throughout the nation were captivated by its demonstration of rural backwardness bringing ever stranger results.

Until the last percent was counted, all national news networks were delayed in waiting for 2 precincts to report their result. This was done, according to Bret Baier and the Fox News team (later denied by the Iowa GOP) by having some farmer drive them over in his truck to have them counted, instead of just calling them in.
