I’m convinced that Newt Gingrich is the junkyard dog we need to rip Obama a new one and send him running back to his Chicago cesspool with his tail between his legs. Newt has DC experience, executive ability, and his silver tongue is razor sharp. He delivers his messages straight up and he can also be very witty. His work with American Solutions was very impressive in that he was able to spell out principles around which the vast majority of Americans agree. He also has plenty of practical ideas for making government work better for the taxpayers. Is Newt pure as the driven snow? No. Whatever Newt’s “baggage”, it’s miniscule compared to Obama’s load and Newt is 100% American. Newt is like Larry the Cable Guy: Send him to DC and he’ll “Git ‘er done”. Junkyard dogs are not show dogs, but they’ll save your bacon.
People complain that Newt is a bomb thrower. IMHO, given washington and the mess we’re in as a country, I wish him luck and will happily assist in crafting bombs to throw.
It would be nice if the Republican Party had even a smidge of sense. The so-called elite are not only out-of-touch...
they are downright sinister in their ignorant mediocrity.
Yep...and the rest of your post was great too...I completely agree and Newt will remain my number one.
“Im convinced that Newt Gingrich is the junkyard dog we need to rip Obama a new one and send him running back to his Chicago cesspool with his tail between his legs.”
I agree. I saw a post the other day that pointed out that in every Presidential election, the one who won was the more “manly” (i.e., ballsy) of the two contestants. I picture each of our remaining candidates up against Obama . . . and Newt is the only one I see defeating Obama. Santorum’s a good guy, but that perpetual “deer in the headlights” look of his is a serious detriment. (Yes, I know that’s superficial. But looks matter in elections, like it or not.)
Newt has awful baggage . . . but let’s face it, OUR side is the only side who cares about it! The Dems probably think his past womanizing is pretty cool. So, we have to decide, are we going to eviscerate our best remaining candidate for his past? We have to decide. I think we need to go with our winningest candidate, no matter what.
Obama must be defeated.
Agreed. Give Obama a teleprompter and Newt would still talk circles around him in a debate.
Correct! And I agree with all that you said when it comes down to the time any GOP candidate faces Obama. When the debates take place between Obama and whoever is the Republican selected our guy better be able to hold his own. That is what will count to most Americans who don't really follow politics, or have don't any serious interest in a candidates background.
One of Obama's main traits that gave him the election was that he was able to win over voters mostly because of his sharp tongue, his quick quips - basically, his ridicule tactics. In the debates he made people laugh at McCain, who looked like the slow, dull, old guy who couldn't think on his feet. Obama is not that smart, and he is lazy, and he had no experience...but he was and is an arrogant flame-thrower who then and now appeals to his base by being continually critical and caustic with an air of superiority and a snide, sickening smile and chuckle.
The GOP candidate HAS to be able to fend off/put down those sarcastic comments Obama makes and will make against any opponent. Unfortunately, with the type of supporters Obama appeals to, all that is important to them is seeing Obama "bi*ch slap" an opponent, like some hyped-up, gang member on a street corner.
Our country is being run by someone who is not good at anything except being good at ridicule (which is so typical of a narcissistic person who has no capabilities of his own). He can only make himself look good by making others the target of his zingers. For those who vote based on that type of performance there is only one - Newt Gingrich - who can match Obama in a debate.
We all know that Gingrich is far superior to Obama in leadership skills, knowledge of world affairs, business and commerce, and an understanding of our Republic and American principles. But when those debates are televised if the GOP candidate can't return and deflect Obama's quips and make a clever comment and sound bite that will resonate with people who want entertainment...then we are lost, and those people on the fence will vote for Obama again. I don't see anyone capable of sparring with and scarring the Obama image except Newt. Unfortunately , no matter how well qualified our candidate is, what will impress most of the public who don't do any research and who cast their votes based mainly on the face-to-face sparring of the debates will be the deciding factor.
Newt has the only ability to quickly and cleverly respond to the sharp tongued wisecracks and tactics of the kid in the White House who only knows how to perform for audiences. Obama debates and campaigns like a street-fighter. He is the bully who picks on anyone more intelligent and qualified than himself in order to deflect anyone's thoughts that he is really a shallow, absolute con-artist who would have made a better commedian or clown than a politician and, certainly, a president.
