Chuck Norris Endorses Newt Gingrich, Swings Crucial 'Walker, Texas Ranger' Constituency

Newt Gingrich picked up the most important endorsement of his presidential campaign on Friday – Chuck Norris.

The indomitable action star penned a column for World Net Daily Friday arguing that Gingrich has the “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.”

It appears the “Walker, Texas Ranger” star would have endorsed Rick Perry, whom Norris referred to as his “friend,” but once the Texas governor dropped out Norris followed his lead in endorsing the former Speaker of the House.

Norris, who campaigned for Mike Huckabee the last time around (video below), listed ten questions he and his wife Gena asked in order to determine their endorsement.

Gingrich’s assertion that he is a “historian” probably won him a few of those, such as, “Who is most committed to follow and lead by the U.S. Constitution?” and “Who has the best working comprehension of America?”

Norris drew some historical parallels that would have made Gingrich proud, claiming that the government is currently robbing its citizens “like the king of England did before the Revolution.”

How Norris settled on Gingrich as the answer to a couple of the other is less clear.

Among the queries, “Who has clear and present moral fortitude?” and “Who is the most fiscally prudent?”

Norris, like other voters, must believe repentance cleanses all sins.  Related Articles:  Fake CNN Alert Alleges Newt Gingrich Asked Ex-Wife for Abortion Newt Gingrich Calls Ex-Wife's Claims 'Trash,' Rips CNN
