I saw Newt in a couple of interviews before Scozzafava dropped out, and hateful would be the way he came off sounding to me. It was surprising. He was ranting about outsiders interfering in the race. Kept going on and on about outsiders interfering and that they had no right.
It surprised me how he came off sounding so mean. And I wondered, because I have no idea where he lives, but I wondered if he wasn’t an outsider to that area as well, and if he was then what right did he have to be acting so mean to others.
Anyway, it turned me off of him. I don’t know what other people thought about it. But it made me see him in a whole new light. He doesn’t seem to be the person I had always thought he was.
If you like him, that’s your choice. I’m not faulting you for your choice. I’m just trying to answer your question the you were asking from my own personal point of view on how he acted.
For me it depends on how bad the alternative is. I said last fall that I thought McCain and Obama would be too similar in economics and immigration but McCain would not be having the terrorist trials in NYC and would not subject our soldiers to this IPCC thing.
What outsiders could he have been referring to? This is getting interesting.
I’m just trying to get to the bottom of why so many hate Newt all of a sudden. I’m looking for the truth, not just prejudice or bias due to something going around the net.
I’m worrying about how we’ll EVER be able to tell a real conservative with staying power, one that will NOT be corrupted by DC and will not fall prey to greed, ego, and power. Is there such a being? (are the initials SP?)
Thanks for the insight!
You bring up a point that hasn't been touched on in this thread. Newt lives in Georgia. So he, too, was an outsider in the race. Any number of comments were made on this at the time. His being so critical of 'outsiders' trying to influence the race, yet he's one himself.
