I posted this on another thread, replying to someone who was talking about Newt’s “baggage”. I’m copying it for you here:

If at 68, a man has not “baggage”, that means his life was empty and his achievements were nil.

Talk about a “baggage”:

10 uninterrupted terms serving in the House of Representatives (1979 - 1999)

The House Republican Minority Whip (1990 - 1994)

The first Republican Speaker of the House in 40 years (1995-1999)

Author of 23 books, including Lessons Learned the Hard Way (1998), Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract with America (2005), Rediscovering God in America (2006), and To Save America: Stopping Obama’s Secular-Socialist Machine (2010). He also co-wrote an alternative history series on the Civil War and World War II.

In 2003 he founded the Center for Health Transformation to develop a 21st century healthcare system that is centered on the individual.

Served on the Hart-Rudman Commission, formally known as the U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century

Gingrich has taught at the United States Air Force’s Air University, where he is the longest-serving teacher of the Joint Flag Officer Warfighting Course.

Honorary Distinguished Visiting Scholar and Professor at the National Defense University where he teaches officers from all of the defense services.

Guiding coalition member of the Project on National Security Reform.

Created the production company Gingrich Productions, and religious educational organization Renewing American Leadership.

Fellow at conservative American Enterprise Institute and Hoover Institution.

Quite a “baggage” indeed!

Awesome posts by both of you! Thank you so much!

Personally, I’ve looked at the candidates, and how they governed while in office. Newt, by far, is the best and most conservative candidate we have now.
