Could there seriously be a fix among the gop establishment to block Newt? speculating on my part but I would never underestimate the republican insiders. Looks like the talking heads are not happy with the Newt surge (making fools of them)
Hang on to your hats folks..this will be one hell of an election. IF you are pro Newt...brace yourselves for a lot more than just normal mudslinging...they will do a “Scooter Libby” on Newt.
The excerpt I posted was towards the end of the article.
The bastards did it to Reagan in 1976!!
This is just blather because there is nothing really bad to report on Newt or to complain about Palin.
The GOP Big Dogs can do what the hell the want, but if enough vote in the Primaries for Newt, they will not prevail.
What they gonna do, toss out Primary elections?
No doubt what we’ll see is a hard smear campaign, which Newt should be able to withstand and in the end the GOPers will come on board.
I am hoping that we don't have a brokered convention because of the effects of the competition we are seeing. Such lack of consensus would really impact the grassroot support that Republican nominees would need to get elected. We will need to unite very strong to defeat Obama’s war machine.
I am also hoping that we don't come to the convention with the delegates deciding that none of the candidates will be acceptable. That would mean that a candidate would have to be drafted at the convention. Such a candidate would need to raise funding quickly to overcome the $billion + war chest that Obama has raised.
We need to understand that whoever is the nominee, they have to be electable. The way the present crop of candidates have handled their negatives, I have great worry that none of them will be electable if they don't start neutralizing those negatives soon.
If You are anti-Newt and pro tea party then expect the others to not drop out until the voting begins if that. Newt would have to really run away for them to drop. I think many are waiting to see what happens because if Newt implodes then they all have a chance. Not just my opinion, Rush said this as well. He said the candidates aren’t ready to drop because they feel Newt might implode.
Newt made a lot of enemies in his own party while the Speaker. A take-no-prisoners attitude may win in the short run, but???
