It’s going to be a long road for our friend Newt Gingrich, as he sets off down that long, lonesome presidential campaign trail. The campaigning is brutal under the best of circumstances, but the remnants of the Lame Stream press, in sync with DeMarxist union thuggery, are going to make this an especially politically-bloody gauntlet which every Republican / Conservative candidate will be forced to run.
The left has its knives out, and with the boorishness which has exemplified the behavior of the left thus far you can be assured that wives and children will not be spared. Newt comes into this race with some old ‘infidelity’ issues which should be history, but are now being exposed all over again with the Schwarzenegger revelation. Fair or not, it’s going to be hashed out all over again.
To say that Newt stepped in it last weekend is giving a new meaning to the term ‘understatement’. Newt has spent all week doing damage control… some of it sounded convincing.
I mentioned that I had a real problem with the direction I had seen some of Newt’s thinking taking, at least through his public utterances. He sounded like he wasn’t in sync with the movement of the country into Constitutional Patriotism… his early criticisms of the Tea Party Patriots have not been forgotten. Neither have we forgotten Mr Gingrich and ‘Nancy-of-the-smiling-eyes-Pelosi’ sitting there and telling us we had to find solutions for ‘climate change‘. I guess Newt has us all pegged as deniers.
Newt Gingrich has a powerful intellect. I’m just not sure about his focus… or his critical judgment.
