Love Affair with Newt

The love affair with Newt
I have to admit, I am a kool-aid drinker. I thought Newt Gingrich was an awesome guy and knew the lessons of history. I was kinda even glad he had supplanted Romney as the frontrunner in the race for the GOP nomination.
Then I saw his past flip flops and his different takes on the same subject sometimes only separated by mere months. His Libya stance comes to mind there.
Newt Gingrich was a hero of mine. Led the GOP back to House rule for the first time in 40 years in 1996. To put it in perspective, the Republicans were the minority in the house for almost 20% of the republics existence. 40 years in a row. Let that just fester in your head for a while. Think there is no comparison between those Elephants and today’s??? Look at the players. Look at what was being debated. Look them up. Seriously.
I saw a phrase or a ‘virtue’ of Newt’s referenced twice within the last 10 hours. Newt is good at debating and that’s what his supporters want. Not someone who can beat Obama, but someone that can out articulate and out debate him.
So what do the Republicans offer for 2012? Santorum, McDonnell, Perry, Romney, Paul, Newt, Huntsman. I liked Cain, thought he was perfect. A black conservative. Honest, a straight shooter, a guy with a can-do attitude. A proud American. Yeah, and who had a penchant for the ladies. Never mind O went to a racist church, hung around an unapologetic terrorist, did coke, no Cain is the bogeyman because he had some unsubstantiated flings.
The left will try to crush whoever the right brings to the match. The right either appeases or is complicit and happy about being 2nd fiddle, because they never fight back toe-to-toe.
Newt is not the fighter we need. We need Ron Paul. Atleast I hope he is who he is made out to be…
We need the Right to realize that THEY had the right mix, the right formula, the right combination between governance and liberty. It’s called the Constitution. The Founders had it right, even with the Federalists being the 1770’s version of ‘Progressives’.
Business as usual will keep us going on as usual, with perhaps a few years every now and then of a pull back. But the trend will continue until the lil’ guy can’t take it anymore. And personally, I feel the lil’ guy has let it be known plenty loudly exactly what he thinks of the situation.
The big boys had better be payin’ attention.
