Well I suppose you are right, I didn’t really address the Newt issue.
For sure he would have fought! And no question that he’s brilliant. I just thought that the rats would have made mincemeat about him over his past - they already took him out once over nothing. Bastards.
Unfortunately, instead of having to deal with a firebrand, history making, right winger, who changed America in his 1994 house version of the Reagan Revolution, (both adamantly opposed by Mitt, who even left the party for many years), who had deeply converted to Catholicism since his scandal.
Instead they had the Mormon Bishop, who disliked Reagan and left his party, was against the Contract with America, who gave us obamacare and gay marriage and gun control, who was pro-abortion, for homosexual Scout leaders and military, and who turned the entire republican brand into the most white bread, out of touch bunch of socially liberal, indiferrent to Christianity, rich guys imaginable.
We have been hurt badly by this Romney debacle and we are in deep trouble, his image as the face of the GOP is the worst one imaginable, he even hurt our own image of ourselves, as we now wonder about our own platform, Romney’s liberalism has deeply penetrated the GOP.
