I dont understand why Gingrich will not go nuclear with Romneys eligibility status (Father was Mexican)
Actually, that’s the problem. Newt can’t go after Romney because the conservative media (Drudge, Rush, Fox, coulter) are in the tank. Also, Romney simply has too much money- he controls the narrative.
Newt realized that after Florida. Since, his goal has been to fly under the radar to the convention- and then his audience is limited to (2500+/-) delegates—and Romney’s negative ads are off the table. .
Long shot, but it was the only available strategy.
You know, posters here complain about a vast GOPe conspiracy, but at my caucus people showed up and voted for all four candidates. Most voted for Romney.
No one forced the majority to vote for Romney in the states that he won.
Romney beat our guys. He had the money to run the ads and control the story as you say. Isn't that basic to our system? It isn't a conspiracy of media and backroom power brokers.
Romney has bags of money and spent it to persuade people that Newt would not win. It seems to have worked. I know a prolife leader in my state who I've worked with over the years and she supported Romney because she thought he was the only one who could win.
They are wrong, but their minds have not been taken over by invisible GOP-E-Rays.
