Skip to comments.Why I Support Newt Gingrich
Posted on 11/16/2011 7:20:50 PM PST by TBBT
I have been agnostic on the Republican primary so far, but the time for choosing has arrived.
For the reasons set forth below, I believe that the primaries will come down to Mitt Romney versus Newt Gingrich. As such, the choice is not between Newt Gingrich and some hypothetical more perfect conservative candidate, as Newts most vocal critics would have us believe.
Im supporting Newt Gingrich as the most conservative Republican who is electable and most qualified for the position of President.

Newt Gingrich and Conservative are two exclusive terms.
Same goes for Romney...

This article is misleading, in the sense that Gingrich can’t say he was young and irresponsible for things he did in the last few year. He said that “”rightwing social engineering,” was the biggest threat to this country less than six months ago. The Gingrich/Chafee ticket is bad for the U.S.
Did you read the article?
I like Newt... He’d be my second choice.
OH MY GAWD!
Surely you jest!
Im still bitter about the sofa with Pelosi thing. But i will admit, it love to watch him enviscerate Obama in a debate. It’d almost be like infanticide, or clubbing a baby seal.
The polls suggest that Newt’s no joke...
Yes, and he has all the answers to the Nation's biggest problems and they all are easy too.
On Social Security he said cutting taxes will make it solvent by creating more jobs.
On Medicare he said he will get Visa and Mastercard to run it since they are experts at stuff like that.
Who else could come up with stuff like that? He is SO smart.
Faced with an ultimate choice between Newt and Mitt, we all pick Newt.
The author does a poor job explaining how it comes down to that choice.
Yes I did...and it’s disengenuous:
1. Pushes debating conservative principles as a reason to elect instead of actions.
2. Ignores to many instance in the past 10 years where Newt clearly qualifies as an establishment CINO
Romney, Pery...same boat that is not going to float with me.
Gingrich is among the top five culprits in the squandering of the substance of the conservative movement since Reagan left office. The fact that anyone who calls themselves conservative takes him seriously is a travesty.
To my dismay I have learned that ALL of our Legislators are corrupt. We will again be choosing, what we regard as, the lesser of the evils. Newt is a bastard but he is our bastard. Big corporate speech (money) has corrupted the process. The mere fact that they all become much richer while serving proves this.
The CAIN TRAIN is still on its way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue...
I thought he was the RINOs bastard.
Newt is a bastard but he is our bastard
Beg to differ.
It is big government itself that has corrupted the process.
Corporations and interest groups spend big money on lobbyists and campaign contributions as a matter of self-defense. Simply put, the government has the power to destroy them. Or, alternatively, to richly reward them.
Take these powers away from government...and big corporate budgets for lobbying, etc. would shrink to a fraction of their current size.
Limited government is innately less prone to corruption than big government.
Sheer waste of time. Newt is so yesterday and has more baggage that an airline would allow for its undercarriage.
