I respectfully disagree with JimRob on Newt, and I’ve outlined why. We’d be fools to ignore Newt’s record and negatives, all because we believe a career politician’s “promises” just as he’s running for the highest office. I’m not playing Charlie Brown to Lucy Van Pelt with the football.
I second your respectful disagreement on Newt.
I’ve followed him for almost two decades and although I agree he is a smooth talker, his flip flopping, unholy alliances, and personal shortcomings are way more baggage than anyone should carry into a presidential campaign.
I will not vote for him in the primary (not that it matters all that much anyhow because my state is late) and I would have a very difficult time voting for him for president.
