An Open Letter to Newt Gingrich
I endorsed you back in September. You were polling at about 5% back then. At the time, you were doing everything right and you shot to the top of the polls. When I endorsed you, I believed you were not only the best candidate to be the next President but really the only candidate who offered us any hope that we could roll back the damage done by the Obama, Pelosi, Reid axis of fiscal evil.
That was then and this is now.
Your campaign is sinking faster than an Italian Cruise ship. I don’t know if anyone is telling you what is going on in your campaign but right now it is a disaster.
Last week, I was in Florida with the Tea Party Express tour. At the events, other campaigns had surrogates. By default, I became yours. I did not mind, but your campaign should have had someone there. While I was at the events in Florida, Romney supporters were there with signs, Ron Paul supporters with signs and Rick Santorum supporters with signs. Your supporters were there. They asked me for signs.
Because there was no one from your campaign attending, there were no signs to give. They could not get signs anywhere.
In short, your campaign in Florida was in complete disarray. And it isn’t just Florida.
After I endorsed you back in September, I contacted the campaign. I asked for contacts in Tennessee so I could what I could to help. I waited for weeks and despite repeated calls and emails, no one would return a call.
If this were a unique experience, it wouldn’t matter. My ego is not that large. However, my experience is not unique. I have spoken to people across the nation who have had the exact same experience. You now have disillusioned supporters all across the nation. You have a staff that is not only not helping you, it is actively injuring your campaign.
There are some good people in your campaign. I have met several of them. There are some people in your campaign that simply need to be fired. Yesterday.
You are an amazing man. You inspire people. So much so that there is a whole group of your supporters who are ready to go rogue right now and start a shadow campaign apart from the official one in order to get you elected. Right now, if you are elected, it will be despite your campaign staff, not because of it.
You are the only candidate who has united an entire divided Republican audience and you have done it twice. Romney does not inspire anyone. Truthfully, neither does Santorum.
You can limp through the votes on Tuesday and make an honorable exit on Wednesday.
Or you can fight.
We want you to fight.
You need a strategy and your brain trust is not delivering it for you.
Here is my suggestion.
You cannot fight Romney one on one. He has too much money. Your goal is not simply to become President. That is Mitt Romney’s goal. Your goal is to change America and restore it. You have an agenda. The problem is, it is your agenda.
You need a team and a team agenda.
This is what you did with Contract with America in 1994.
You need to find a team of 100 or more conservatives who are running for either the Congress or the Senate this year.
Form a team.
You will need a team if you become President, so form it now. Put together a legislative contract with America. This is something your new Congress will promise to vote on within 100 days of being elected and these are bills you will sign as soon as they hit your desk.
You need to bring these people on to your team. Romney might be able to outspend you one on one, he cannot beat you if you have one hundred Congressional and Senatorial candidates on your team. If you make this election about your plan, Romney cannot stand. He cannot outspend one hundred people running for Congress and the Senate. He cannot out organize you if you have this type of team on the ground.
If you make this not just a race about you, but a race about the future of America, you can still pull this out.
The choice is yours. You can clean house and get rid of the people that are offending the grass roots activists that want to help you and who are doing you no good or not. You have inspired people who are willing to help you and even run a campaign outside of your official campaign if that is what it takes.
Your campaign is not working. The first rule, when you are in a hole, quit digging.
You need to do something. The choice is yours.
You can fight or you can let Romney win.
Romneys debate coaches strategy (with the help of the despicable liberal media) has succeeded in putting Newt on the defensive. He needs to be less defensive and more on target with his message. Overcoming Romneys large war chest funding will be very hard but if Newt takes his message to the American people the right way, things will turn around. As it now stands Romeny is standing unopposed. By Super Tuesday it will either be a new GOP race or it will be all over.
If you want to help Newt go to Newt.org. I've been working the phone bank for Newt and it's all done at home. Fun talking to people and getting the pulse of America.
ANYTHING AND ANY WAY, to help NEWT would be a great PLUS for his campaign against the RINO MITT. NEWT NEEDS TO REORGANIZE HIS CAMPAIGN as was mentioned. but if NEWT IS TO WIN. we all need to help where we can we have a lot of skills here on the TEAPARTIES. also if the other two candidates would realize and wake up that they hv no chance at the NOMINATION. should resign their BID. INSTEAD OF STEALING NEEDED VOTES FOR NEWT. but of course as we see in the NEWS they are not. stubborn candidates do not help any one. NEWT AT THIS POINT NEEDS REAL HELP. otherwise we will be stuck with a jack ass RINO. DO WE WANT THAT????.

Seems to me that this is a clear indication and red flag of what a Gingrich Presidency would be. Just a whole lot of BS and not much substance. When are you going to give it up and see Gingrich for what he really is? A whiney, corrupt politician that really has nothing to offer but trouble. America has enough trouble already. Many of us do not believe Newt is the conservative he pretends to be. Newt will NOT be our next president.
I guess you refuse to do research, the way many Americans have done. When are you going to realize that the liberal lies indoctrinated your mind and you no longer can distinguish between truth and lies?
Please prove your point through website resources.
I hope your are wrong islevicki.
I think we all would be about Santorum, but no one here is threatend. We are just hoping that after all the fighting we did, all the sleepless nights that Judson and the other main leaders of this movement put in, all the signs we did, all the rallies we held, all of the time we spent working HARD to wake up America...that some of you would wake UP. But sadly Noooooooo...Mittens Romney? That's how you thank the Tea Party for being there? Gee your Friggen welcome! So gald that we could do all of that just to have you slap us in the face! Just wonderful!!! Sad to know that after all that was done...Conservatives STILL have not woken up! It's a sad state!
The anyone but romney train is picking up steam. We are winning!.
Great advice, Judson! This a unique approach also by joenigma and something very easy to arrange. I am forwarding the URL to Newt's website.
