Newt is not Reagan’s “successor.” Is my sarcasm detector broke? Maybe. Listen to a few of Reagan’s speeches and then tell me that the solutionist Gingrich in anyway compares. Gingrich has a plan called better government. Reagan’s plan was less government. My work is done here.
I was simply quoting Nancy Reagan. She said “Ronnie” passed the torch to Newt.
Louisiana is heavily Catholic and I am sure that helped Santorum a lot. I would be perfectly happy with Santorum but I think Newt would be more effective in maneuvering around Washington.
