KUDOS! Great post, Windflier.
I agree with you that Newt, if given the opportunity, will save our butts, ‘cause we’re heading for an abyss if Obama is re-elected.
I can’t even imagine what will happen if Obama is reelected. I thought his stunt with telling religious organizations yesterday that they had to provide services in their mandated insurance programs that violate their religious teachings shows that he’s pretty confident that he’ll be reelected and is a signal to his Marxist supporters that the gloves will be off when that happens.
Newt is a historian's historian, and knows better than most, that America is in one of its most pivotal periods. In him, I believe exists just the right combination of smarts, knowledge, experience, sheer courage and guts, ego, and understanding of what's at stake, to get the job done.
I keep coming back to the realization that Newt Gingrich is just the sort of polarizing, enigmatic, confounding, brilliant, and daring sort of character, who has always been the type to move nations forward in their time of greatest need.
I see him as one of a long line of such people in Western history, and I really do believe that he will cause sparks to fly in DC from day one, onwards.
