Whatever flaws and failings Newt has - and there are more than I would like (but in this age of instant information/disinformation, who knows?) - the question I have is whose fingerprints are on this latest destroy-Newt effort. Mitt’s? Maybe. The GOP establishment’s? Maybe. Barack Obama’s? Maybe. All of the above? Maybe. These United States show all the same signs of the degeneration of the late Roman Empire. Who of the GOP candidates is in it for something other than their own agenda? Who is in it for the American people, the idea of America as enshrined in the Declaration and the Constitution, as symbolized in the Statue of Liberty, and as purchased by the blood of the tens and hundreds of thousands who chose to surrender their lives for the idea of liberty and responsibility under God?
I do not see it in the forces of Barry Obama. I do not see it in the forces of Mitt Romney. I see it - maybe, maybe, maybe - in the flawed and very imperfect people who respond to Newt’s best moments.
That was a great post. Amen.
Thank you Belte...well said.
