Coalesce - To unite as to form one mass.
Well, I think the Tea Party has done it. They have settled on the “Pit Bull On Steroids.” Newt is the only candidate (other than Paul, who the Tea Party will not support) who is running as a “Populist.” There is no denying it, Newt has a mad dog demeanor but what makes him so potent is that he has the intellect to parry with the best of them. He epitomizes the Tea Party slogan: “We’re Not Going to Take it Anymore” I hope he adopts it for the campaign. When he takes aim and fires his gatling gun verbal assault on the opponent, he doesn’t quiet until he has cut them down to size and cleared the area leaving his opposition shell shocked. It invariably gets the Tea Party folks up and out of their chairs because he is blasting the opposition with words the Tea Partiers have so longed wanted to say about the distressing state of affairs. My only concern about him is that he cut and ran out of town the last time. I hope he realizes now that he is too old to expect another chance and he has to lock his jaws on the enemy and fight to the death this time around. Of course, it will be like last time for the Repub Party who will again refuse to get behind him because they do not want to tarred with being a meany. Look what that approach got us. A mad dog with an attitude is what we need now, no more pansies. But, it will be Newt and the Tea Party against all the rest. A lot like Reagan in this regard. As an aside, I watched a little of Fox News last night. Very interesting. They were all scratching their heads. Karl Roves looked like he had suffered a stroke, his face was sagging. Drawn faces all around, with much stammering and puzzlement over the turn of events. No one said a thing about the Tea Party. They just don’t get it or hate to admit that the Tea Party is alive and well. They have just been watching, evaluating, and waiting for someone who will take the fight to the enemy. This clearly is not going to be a popularity contest to please the elites, MSM, communists or the Republican Establishment. Newt has negatives for sure but what we need is someone who can deliver in a mud wrestling match. To pull this off, the Tea Party will have to control the Senate, because Newt will surely need all the support he can get. Coalesce is the watchword for success because there are more of us than them.
The talking heads are willfully clueless about one major fact: there is widespread, deep, and profound anger at Obama, the MSM, and the elites throughout our society who disdain traditional America. Newt channels and expresses that anger. Voting for Newt is in essence a big FU to the political/media/educational establishment.
I think Newt’s audience ought to start shouting, “Ditto!”
THAT would blow the establishment’s mind, but Newt is saying what many of us have thought for years but haven’t heard a politician say...
Yours is, by far, a better-written piece than Roger Simon’s of Politico, posted just after this observation of the once-truthful Ann Coulter.
Their pushing McCain went too far and if they could see that they wouldn’t be so blind-sided. Ironic how like sheep they are.
The establishment Republicans indeed did NOT support Reagan. They still don’t, as far as I’m concerned.
