'Super Tuesday' (Thomas Sowell on Obama & Gingrich)
Creators Syndicate ^ | February 29, 2012 | Thomas Sowell

Posted on 02/29/2012 12:55:13 PM PST by jazusamo

Many people are looking to the many primary elections on March 6th — "Super Tuesday" — to clarify where this year's Republican nomination campaign is headed.

It may clarify far more than that, including the future of this nation and of Western civilization. If a clear winner with a commanding lead emerges, the question then becomes whether that candidate is someone who is likely to defeat Barack Obama.

If not, then the fate of America — and of Western nations, including Israel — will be left in the hands of a man with a lifelong hostility to Western values and Western interests.

President Obama is such a genial man that many people, across the ideological space, cannot see him as a danger.

For every hundred people who can see his geniality, probably only a handful see the grave danger his warped policies and ruthless tactics pose to a whole way of life that has given generation after generation of Americans unprecedented freedom and prosperity.

The election next November will not be just another election, and the stakes add up to far more than the sum of the individual issues. Moreover, if reelected and facing no future election, whatever political constraints may have limited how far Obama would push his radical agenda will be gone.

He would have the closest thing to a blank check. Nothing could stop him but impeachment or a military coup, and both are very unlikely. A genial corrupter is all the more dangerous for being genial.

The four remaining Republican candidates have to be judged, not simply by whether they would make good presidents, but by how well they can cut through Obama's personal popularity and glib rhetoric, to alert the voters as to the stakes in this year's election.

Ron Paul? Even those of us who agree with much of his domestic agenda, including getting rid of the Federal Reserve System, cannot believe that his happy-go-lucky attitude toward Iran's getting a nuclear weapon represents anything other than a grave danger to the whole Western World.

Rick Santorum has possibilities, but can he survive the media's constant attempts to paint him as some kind of religious nut who would use the government to impose his views on others? And, if he can, will he also be able to go toe-to-toe with Obama in debates?

I would not bet the rent money on it. And what is at stake is far bigger than the rent money.

Mitt Romney is the kind of candidate that the Republican establishment has always looked for, a moderate who can appeal to independents. It doesn't matter how many such candidates have turned out to be disasters on election night, going all the way back to Thomas E. Dewey in 1948.

Nor does it matter that the Republicans' most successful candidate of the 20th century — Ronald Reagan, with two consecutive landslide victories at the polls — was nobody's idea of a mushy moderate.

He stood for something. And he could explain what he stood for. These may sound like modest achievements, but they are very rare, especially among Republicans.

Newt Gingrich is the only candidate still in the field who can clearly take on Barack Obama in one-on-one debate and cut through the Obama rhetoric and mystique with hard facts and plain logic.

Nor is this just a matter of having a gift of gab. Gingrich has a far deeper grasp of both the policies and the politics than the other Republican candidates.

Does Gingrich have political "baggage"? More than you could carry on a commercial airliner.

Charges of opportunism have been among the most serious raised against the former Speaker of the House. But being President of the United States is the opportunity of a lifetime. If that doesn't sober a man up, it is hard to imagine what would.

Do any of the Republican candidates seem ideal? No. But, the White House cannot be left vacant, while we hope for a better field of candidates in 2016. We have to make our choice among the alternatives actually available, of which Obama is by far the worst.

We have a Marxist President with a radical agenda foreign to our heritage with his finger on the nuclear trigger. His paternity and citizenship are suspect. He takes great pains to hide his background from us. He was educated by Muslims, Communists, and at Harvard. He emerged into the public eye from the cesspool of Chicago politics. As a “community organizer”, he got poor folks on the dole and squandered public funds in a failed attempt to subvert public schools to an ideological agenda. He attended a Chicago Church whose hate-America Pastor is a foul-mouthed servant of Satan. He is close friends with known terrorists. He admires and bows before oil potentates and tin-pot dictators. (We have pictures.) He treats America’s traditional allies with contempt. He hates Jews, Israel, America, and Whitey. He lies so easily and so often it is troubling. Based on his past & current associations, Barack Obama would never even qualify for a DOD Security Clearance; now he is Commander in Chief and fecklessly taking steps to disarm us in the sight of our enemies. Does that make you feel safe at night? Fellow Patriots, Barack Obama is a danger to your Life, Liberty, and Property and a disgrace to American ideals! Barack Obama has gotta go!

I’m absolutely convinced that Newt Gingrich is the junkyard dog we need to rip Obama a new one and send him running back to his Chicago slime pit with his tail between his legs. Newt has plenty of DC experience as Speaker, executive ability from his many enterprises, and a silver tongue that’s razor sharp! He’s fast on his feet, delivers it straight up with no hemming and hawing, and is often witty. His work with American Solutions was very impressive and as we’ve seen recently, Newt is able to put into words what the vast majority of Americans really believe. His fevered brain also has plenty of ideas for making government work better for taxpayers. Is Newt pure as new driven snow? No - no presidential candidate is in line for sainthood. Whatever Newt’s “baggage”, it pales next to Obama’s habitual lying and outright corruption - and unlike Obama, Newt is 100% American! Newt is like Larry the Cable Guy: send him to DC and he’ll “Get ‘er done” for all of us. Newt has “Been there, done that! Junkyard dogs are not show dogs, but they’ll save your bacon! I am damn mad at what Obama and his bootlickers have stolen from us - you should be too - and I want someone to represent me.

Newt Gingrich is that man! Sic ‘em, Newt!

Thomas is always a good read. We need a direct and serious injection of sanity, back into this party we used to refer to as “Grand”!

And chasing rainbows to find the perfect Social Conservative at the end of it, is not what I mean either. Especially when that “perfect Social CONservative” is in reality, a complete fraud.

Sowell's got soul! Preach it, brother!

He needs to put this one in his Romney file. A lot of this can be recycled for a new article if Romney becomes president.

For every hundred people who can see his geniality, probably only a handful see the grave danger his warped policies and ruthless tactics pose to a whole way of life that has given generation after generation of Americans unprecedented freedom and prosperity.

Genial is a misnomer -but Sowell is correct in that most people view BO as a smiling benefactor. Those who are more discerning know the truth.

Newt Gingrich is not a con artist. What you see and hear is authentic. That he has screwed up on occasion - is proof of his bold nature.

“Does Gingrich have political “baggage”? More than you could carry on a commercial airliner.”

After 4 years with a bounder like “O” in the WH, ‘baggage’ is a moot point.

He got zero delegates and garnered 7% of the vote which is more than double the margin by which Santorum was defeated.

I’d prefer to give the country a litmus test with this election anyway. If they think someone failing at a marriage is worse baggage than Solyndra, Fast and Furious, trillions in new debt, the government takeover of health care, forcing churches to violate their conscience, refusing to develop our own energy products due to an adherence to vague pagan ideology, and pretending that Muslims are our friends and partners in coexistence, then I’ll know once and for all that this country is too stupid to be deserving of its Constitution and that it won’t be surviving much longer. I want to find out what this country understands about reality right now, so that I can start looking into property in Australia or New Zealand if they reveal themselves to be the mushminded, self-destructive simpletons that many of us suspect they are.

WE have 6 days left before Super Tewsday. There is still time for Newt to come back. It may not be easy, but there never was a better man to prove he is capable.

This will be the ultimate test. If Newt pulls this off, then there will be no doubt that he is the one who can actually fix this mess.

My mom is a lifelong conservative Republican, going all the way back to supporting Barry Goldwater in 1964. She is also a very religious person, and has been a deacon in her church for more than a decade.

She also lives in Pennsylvania, and is familiar with Santorum. She read his 2006 book, is familiar with his statements since then, and think he has gone way overboard with moralizing about people's private lives. If Santorum has lost people like that, he has no chance in a general election.

You are the ONLY one who has left the Earth, chasing rainbow politicians like Santorum.

And there is NOTHING (You like to emphasize with caps, so I threw them in on your behalf) in what Mr. Sowell said that claimed Newt was “UNELECTIBLE!”. On the contrary, he said the very opposite. And Newt is, very much ELECTIBLE!!!!

(What Thomas really said and you decided to miss;)

But the man who suffered an 18-point loss in his home state after two terms from the people who knew him best is somehow electoral gold? And that's exactly the kind of state he claims he's going to be strong in now.

If electability is your goal, vote Mitt. He's proven more electable in the primary so far even without getting the conservative vote. Or try to draft Hillary. She could beat Obama, and that's all you care about, right? Some of us would prefer to actually work to elect someone who can actually fix this country, not just be the establishment's lapdog and continue doling out the empty socialist promises.

Those 7 percentage points from Newt probably wouldn't go to Rick mostly. Rick has now proven he loses on competency and electability to Mitt. Gingrich was already divorced and remarried when he swept the House in 1994 and became Speaker. Everyone, liberal, moderate and conservative alike agree Newt is extremely smart. That's a huge personal advantage going into the election. It's easy to soften up various rough edges on a candidate, but you can't make a dumb guy smart.

And both of those men are Obama. He just calls the "republican" persona Romney. With either man we get Socialized Medicine. With both we get Liberal to Left judges. After those things it doesn't matter any more.

Levin and Limbaugh have spent the better part of the last month extracting Santorum's foot from his mouth. Frankly I'm growing weary of it. The Republicans cannot go to battle with a candidate whose rhetorical screw-ups have to be cleaned up the following day(s) by conservative talk radio hosts.

The Democrats are voting in these primaries and they are voting for Romney. Forget that propaganda about voting for Santorum. I am a registered Democrat of 30 years standing. I maintain that registration partly because it gives me access to what local Democrats think. A lot of them have reregistered as Republicans this year to vote for Romney just as they did in 2008 to vote for McCain. In 08 they knew that the kenyan was the nominee long before the MSM or the Republicans figured that out. This year there is no motivation to vote in their own primaries because the kenyan is already the nominee. Romney is the ideal Republican candidate for Democrats. Because he cannot believably distinguish his policies from those of the incumbent he has little chance to win the election and if he does win it there is no loss to the Democrat vision of America, just a hiatus while their policies are still being implemented, probably faster than they could do it, and he will lose the republican House in 2 years and the Democrats, perhaps the kenyan, will easily regain the presidency in 2016.

He came to the correct conclusion, I'm glad to say. Go Newt!

" We're at the crossroads. Down one road is a European centralized bureaucratic socialist welfare system in which politicians and bureaucrats define the future.
Down the other road is a proud, solid, reaffirmation of American exceptionalism."
