Santorum or Newt?? I Went for Newt. Here’s Why.

I like Santorum. I like Newt. I would be happy with either as our nomineee. In Tennessee, I had been planning to vote for Santorum when it appeared he was the only alternative to Romney. But polls now show Newt, Santorum and Romney all within margin of error, so I had to finally make a decision of who I prefered.

I decided on one issue and for one reason:

People have not been paying attention to what has been happening in the last 3 years.

We need someone who can most effectively explain what the Obama administration has been doing and do so in an effective political way. So my decision came down to:

Who do you want giving the nomination speech when the whole country is watching? Who can best articulate and attack the left for their nutty policies and viewpoints?

To me the answer was clear. One man. Newt Gingrich.

Sure some people may not like Newt but this election will not be a popularity contest. Voters need to be informed and Newt is the best one to explain what has been going wrong and why Obama cannot be trusted with the future.

Some will point out Newt’s flawed conservative record but he fought for years and moved the ball further than any candidate in modern history.

That is why I support Newt.
