There is no question in my mind that Newt Gingrich is the only man in the Republican field of candidates who can decisively and unquestionably defeat Barack Hussein Obama this November. How do I know this? He said so:
When I hear Mittens utter words even remotely approaching the sheer pugnaciousness of Newt’s, I’ll give him better than even odds against the Obama Statist Express.
But…but…Bulldog, have you lost your mind? What about Newt’s freight train of personal baggage?
Ah yes…the “Personal Baggage.” Let’s put that baggage into perspective, shall we? ROME IS BURNING. That is to say, our economy is collapsing. We are drowning in debt. The federal government is on the brink of morphing into Hobbes’ Leviathan with the advent of Obamacare. The nation is more divided now than at any point in its history. If our economy collapses, so will the economy of the entire planet.
So…you were saying something about “personal baggage?”
But Bulldog, what about Newt’s stint as a consultant for Freddie Mac?
What about it? Who cares? Seriously…who cares? If the Obama Machine throws it at Gingrich, he’ll knock it out of the park by pointing out that, in typically stupid bureaucratic fashion, Freddie Mac paid him sizable sums of money to ignore everything he told them about how to reform their operation.
What about his SuperPAC minions’ anti-Bain video and his own attacks on Romney?
What about them? It shows us that Gingrich can be a nasty, vindictive prick who has no qualms about employing the same street fighting tactics Romney used against him. I don’t for one minute believe that Gingrich for one minute believed any of the anti-Bain rhetoric he used. There was but one purpose behind the attack: do unto Romney what Romney did unto him.
And THAT is precisely the man I want to go head to head with Barack Obama. Keep in mind that the Committee to Re-Elect the President (CREEP) has pretty much placed all of its eggs in the Romney-as-candidate basket, preparing an elaborate and extremely expensive attack campaign based entirely on envy, class warfare and hate-the-rich agitprop – with Romney as its poster boy and telegenic piñata.
Newt Gingrich has no ties to Wall Street. He’s not a mega-millionaire and certainly not a doppelganger for Gordon Gekko. His nomination as the GOP candidate would totally f*ck up CREEP’s campaign strategy. They would be reduced to harping on his “baggage” and playing over and over again a totally played out race card that most Americans pretty much ignore at this point in time – especially because…ARE YOU READY?… ROME IS BURNING.
Now is not the time for Mitt Romney’s careful, diplomatic parsing. It’s not the time for Mitt’s insistence that Obama is basically a nice guy who’s in this over his head. It’s not the time for the political equivalent of the Marquess of Queensbury Rules.
No, my friends: now is the time for the gloves to come off; now is the time for a full-out political brawl – a nasty, blow-for-blow dogfight right down to election day. What we need is a candidate filled not with honey and platitudes, but one filled with piss and vinegar who is unafraid to metaphorically urinate on Obama’s shoes while calling him a socialist and the worst thing that ever happened to the United States.
What we need is a fearless candidate who has no use for political correctness, a candidate whose true record as a maverick will keep all of America’s enemies wondering if he really is nuts enough to nuke them into oblivion.
What we need is Newt Gingrich. And, apparently, no less a conservative darling and icon than La Palin agrees:
Make it happen, South Carolina.
