From Winning Our Future
Newt Gingrich is set to end his quixotic run for the White House next week and throw his support behind Mitt Romney. The media had really stopped covering his events because everyone but Gingrich knew this was over along time ago. Gingrich was the first candidate that really brought Romney’s involvement with Bain Capital under scrutiny. Gingrich has provided the Democrats with a lot of information that will be used effectively against the presumptive nominee and for that the Democrats owe him a debt of gratitude.
I thought Newt Gingrich was out of this race. I guess I thought wrong. Here is his statement regarding Rick Santorum’s suspension of his campaign.
“I am committed to staying in this race all the way to Tampa so that the conservative movement has a real choice. I humbly ask Senator Santorum’s supporters to visit Newt.org to review my conservative record and join us as we bring these values to Tampa. We know well that only a conservative can protect life, defend the Constitution, restore jobs and growth and return to a balanced budget.””
Washington (CNN) — “Mitt Romney picked up a highly prized endorsement Wednesday from former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush after a convincing victory the night before in the Illinois primary but then saw a top adviser’s televised comment provide new ammunition to his trailing rivals in the Republican presidential race. Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney’s senior campaign adviser, was asked in a CNN interview Wednesday morning whether the former Massachusetts governor had been forced to adopt conservative positions in the rugged race that could hurt his standing with moderates in November’s general election.”I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes,” Fehrnstrom responded. “It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up, and we start all over again.” So did he confirm what Romney’s rivals have said all along? That Romney will say or do anything to get the nomination? Sure the Republicans tend to run to the right to get the nomination and the Democrats run to the left. Both parties come back to the center they just have the good sense not to say it.
The GOP candidates have something to say about everything going on. Have any of them made any comments on the Trayvon Martin case? I know Newt Gingrich was screaming racism regarding a joke told by Robert DeNiro, but I didn’t hear him uttering that word in relation to this case. Please let me know if you have heard any statements.
This Republican primary season has been fascinating. Who can forget Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachman, Jon Huntsman and Tim Pawlenty. Well the last two were somewhat forgettable, but the point is we had the opportunity to see 20 debates and they made for some must see tv. So now we are down to the Final Four and the talk is can Mitt Romney seal the deal before the convention? He has Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich standing in his way, but he is convinced that he will be the last man standing. Will there be a brokered convention? Will the Tea Party support Mitt the Mormon from Massachusetts? There might be a brokered convention and the Tea party will support Mitt. He might not win the Mississippi or the Alabama primary today, but so what. Whoever the Republicans select will start out with one big plus–he is not President Obama. There will be party unity and President Obama is the unifier-in-chief. The GOP field might not agree on much, but they do not want four more years for the current resident of Pennsylvania Avenue and that is why on November 6th they will be unified. So we can enjoy the infighting we are witnessing but the real fight starts after they finish fighting each other, and that is the fight that counts.
Franklin Graham on Morning Joe says Santorum and Gingrich are Christians, but President Obama not so much
Franklin Graham son of noted evangelist Billy Graham appeared on Morning Joe today and was asked if he believed that President Obama was a Christian. He said he could not answer the question, but he could readily say that Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich were Christians. Watch the clip and watch Graham’s response when he asked about the double standard he applies to the candidate. Tell me what you think.
How do you get people to cheer for you after you have been accused of open marriage? Sounds like a tough question, but not if you are Newt Gingrich. Gingrich managed to spin the answer in such a way that he indicted the questioner, his ex-wife and the news media. So who really knows the answer to the question? Newt and his ex-wife Marianne are the only two people that know the answer to the question. Should John King have asked the question about the open marriage? The issue is in the news and everybody is talking about it, but was it a fair question and did it belong in a presidential debate? I wrote a post about it last night right after it was asked and at the time I was appalled at how Gingrich had attacked the questioner, but 12 hours later I have had an opportunity to re-think my position. Now I think Newt Gingrich might just be an evil genius. This guy is a master of disaster. When Herman Cain came on the scene he presented himself as a family man who had worked his way up the corporate ladder. As he progressed in the polls we started to see women popping out of the woodwork with tales of sexual harrassments and finally with a woman who claimed to have had a long term affair with the pizza magnate. Cain could not survive because that is not the Cain we first met. Gingrich is a known womanizer we knew that from the jump. So when you find out somebody that you knew had issues with women might have asked his wife to swing you are not surprised. So last night Gingrich was sitting on ready and King gave him the opportunity to pounce and pounce early. Should the question have been asked at a presidential debate? I would say no, but I would also say Newt Gingrich should not be in a presidential debate.
The media did not destroy Newt Gingrich’s marriage. He did and for him to try to turn a question about his ex-wife’s interview into an indictment of the media is ridiculous and to try to bring the president into his sordid affair would be laughable if Newt were not so dangerous.
ABC Nightline is going to run an interview with Marianne Gingrich tonight. As they say “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. The irony of this is Newt Gingrich left his first wife to be with Marianne. The Bible says you reap what you sew, but this is indeed a personal matter. When you run for president your personal business is disected for the world to see. This interview could tilt the South Carolina primary. We know why ABC wants to run the interview now: ratings, but should they run it before the primary? Tell me what you think.
