There are two sides to that argument:
Gingrich is no conservative. Just examine his advocacy record.
See? It's easy. Newt has flipped back and forth from Global Warming to a healthcare mandate. So, at that point it comes down to which one you can trust. Newt violated his most solemn oaths, repeatedly. He may be intelligent and articulate, but from what I can see he uses that ability to rationalize anything.
Agree, the only true conservative in this race is Gov. Rick Perry.
Conservativegreatgrandma: “Santorum is no conservative. Just examine his voting record.”
Carry_Okie: “There are two sides to that argument:
Gingrich is no conservative. Just examine his advocacy record.”
The sad truth is that you are both correct. Which means the calculus shifts to which one got or can get anything done for conservatives or even mere Constitutional governance, and can that candidate win?
Both of these guys are compromised. Which one is least compromised, and which one is most able to win? I’ve made up my mind, but that is the dilemma we all face with this lackluster field at a critical juncture.
Some of the stuff being dredged up about Santorum is highly suspect too.
1. trying to take him down because he voted for things that were riders on comprehensive bills, as if he only voted for the problematic issue standing alone
2. trying to take him down with sites clearly coming from a leftist vent, when you look they’ve trashed Republicans to the almost total exclusion of Democrats (senate and governors)
As for his failed marriages; unless, you can walk in his shoes; no reason to go there. Our Country is too desperate for Leadership; for this.
We know Newt can lead; and that he can debate; and hold his own with world Leadership. We know his vision for America.
Good Grief; Reagan was not perfect; nor a saint; nor Bush, for that matter; why does any Repub imagine we must have a Saint? Certainly, NONE exists per running for 'this' job. Nor, should we want one, for that matter.
"This way please Mr. Gingrich" The other folks at the home miss you."
