There are a lot of "dreamers" on FR lately...
I believe, because it hurts to think otherwise, that most Freepers understand they are making a profound sacrifice supporting Newt Gingrich. The goal is laudable — stop Mitt Romney. I wish they’d just admit that this is what drives the argument, rather than trying to justify the unjustifiable statements.
Hell, even when I was at my most adamant in defending Romney back in 2008, I never once told anybody else they were wrong to vote against him, or faulted them for not believing what Romney was saying. Whoever we pick is going to be a flawed candidate, as CONSERVATIVE Mark Steyn said yesterday on Rush’s show, and we just have to accept that, but it does us no good to deny it and pretend otherwise.
I’ve never seen conservatives so excited about defending a guy based on what he did back in 1983, while ignoring the past 3 years, or what was said last week. On the other hand, I wasn’t here in 2000 when apparently there were big fights over George Bush.
