In a perfect world or even a fair world, Newt Gingrich would be wrapping up the Republican nomination for President.
Life is not fair.
Newt hangs on, like a bloodied and battered Rocky, refusing to throw in the towel.
Newt was the amazing candidate of this election. He came back from the political dead several times.
Newt was the candidate of ideas. Newt was the candidate Obama feared. Obama never mocked or worried about anything Mitt Romney said or for that matter any other republican said. He worried about what Newt said.
When Obama attacked the Republicans, he attacked Newt’s ideas. Obama mocked Newt’s idea of $2.50 a gallon gas.
America’s future, at least at the Presidential level is bleak. We will either have a President who is an anti-American Marxist or his potential replacement is not only a liberal, but is basically a soulless technocrat
For Mitt Romney, the current situation our nation faces is simply a problem to be solved. There is no good or evil in solving a problem. There is simply the proper solution that works.
The problem is we are dealing with our nation.
Men and women do not willingly sacrifice themselves for a spreadsheet or for a government. Men and women will gladly sacrifice themselves for a cause greater than themselves.
The problems America now faces are more than simply a problem to be solved. The answer is not the correct monetary policy. It is not a question of whether the right system is used.
Freedom and liberty are causes for which people are passionate about. People do not rise up just because don’t happen to like the way someone talks. The question for freedom and liberty is a universal hunger.
Newt the historian understood this better than the other candidates.
He knew this campaign was not a sterile process of selecting a CEO. This was a contest of ideas. America needs the passionate ideas of a visionary to pull us away from the abyss. We need a Ronald Reagan, Thomas Jefferson and a George Washington.
Newt was not any of those men but he was the best candidate in the race.
Newt’s ideas were so far beyond everyone else’s that when he would make a point in a debate, the other candidates would simply nod like bobble heads.
This Easter weekend, Rick Santorum is meeting with some of his supporters. They will be talking about the future of his campaign. Newt can no longer win. Santorum’s chances are becoming slim.
Americans are not a people who look back. But this time, no matter what happens this fall, next year we may well be looking back wondering what might have been.
Thank you Newt.
Allegedly, Mitt was assured after McCain got the 2008 nomination, that HE, MITT, WOULD BE the 2012 candidate. And so it is........now how did that all happen? With the full support of just Republican K Street types? Perhaps with the full acceptance and connivance of the dimocrat's and the media???? Could that be so?? .Whoever made up the precampaign team, ,, we will again have the likes of Goldman Sacks alum's to run the tax-payers hard earned money taken from us to fund our country!! Every administration, regardless of Party affliation, for the last 20 - 30 years has used those guys who learned their trade at that financial establishment to run our treasury and Federal Reseve. Did you ever consider, or wonder, why? Some food for thought, aye?
You are so right !
The Republican K Street crew have their "tenure" system and the Fed Reseve, Wall Street , Goldman Sachs "training program" gives us the "Money boys tat keep the game alive" !
If any of these candidates were willing to speak the truth about Obama, they would have the backing wholeheartedly of Americans. By questioning Obama's eligibility publicly, people would flock to get on their band wagon and we would find the truth. Instead they bury their head like our Congressmen and Senators are doing.
