President 2012: Newt Gingrich – Really?

Besides George Will’s comments above and the fact that the Democrat’s salivate when mentioning Newt Gingrich as the Republican nominee, there is this sobering piece from Jennifer Rubin.

Some conservatives seem to have taken leave of their senses and/or developed a bad case of amnesia when it comes to Newt Gingrich. He’s credited with “leading the conservative movement for 25 years.” (Really? After he was booted from the speakership, what did he do to further conservative values and causes?) He’s labeled as a conviction conservative. (Really? Was hawking Freddie Mac and ethanol subsidies a pro-conservative or a pro-Newt endeavor?) He’s credited with grand accomplishments as speaker of the House. (Really? He lost the government-shutdown standoff to Bill Clinton and lambasted conservatives who objected to his penchant for excessive compromise.) He’s more mature and sober. they say. (Really? Attacking Rep. Paul Ryan for “rightwing social engineering” wasn’t exactly a responsible move.)

I really don’t think that Newt can be considered as a viable candidate.

It looks to me that the GOP should just get it over with and nominate Mitt Romney – RomneyCare and Flip Flop warts and all.

At least with Mitt, you know what you are getting…..

George Will and Andrew Sullivan jumped the shark with regards to Sarah Palin a long time ago. I wonder why the Lamestream media even consider Andrew Sullivan a pundit on the RIGHT since he has been a progressive for many years now.

Sarah Palin has to convince not the media nor the GOP Establishment that she is a viable candidate. She has to persuade independent voters in key battleground states that will determine the Presidency in the Electoral College.

It is all about the polls in Ohio, Florida, New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado and Nevada.
