Newt on the taunting media and opponents
As much as the establishment and opposing candidates are pushing for Newt to drop out and are determined to convince the People that Newt should quit, Newt remains absolute and is full throttle ahead to the Tampa, FL Convention.
When he was asked on CBS’s This Morning “under what circumstances” he would end his campaign before the convention, Gingrich responded: “Probably none. I’ll be with you in Tampa. I have 176,000 donors at Newt.org. They want me to stay in the race.”
Later on Fox News’ Fox & Friends, Gingrich said voters in Illinois were telling him to stay in the race. “I think the people who are supporting me want to have sort of a Reagan-like visionary, a big ideas candidate,” he said.
But it’s not just Illinois, every state Newt stops at- he gets highly charged responses from people pleading with him to stay in the race.
Clear, Consistent, Conservative Choice
Denise Haywald, a Florida resident, agrees enthusiastically and explains why she is still involved in Newt’s campaign even though the Florida primary was Jan 31, 2012.
“Newt is the clear, consistent, conservative choice. We need a strong conservative to balance out Obama’s socialistic spiral. In a time of economic peril, we cannot afford any more on the job training. Newt is the only candidate who understands the nuts and bolts of the details of the Presidency and who has experience balancing the national budget for 4 straight years and bringing true entitlement reform. The main objective is to beat Obama and Newt is, by far, the best debater, has the most experience and the firmest backbone and voice needed to debate Obama. Besides, Newt is the only candidate who has put Obama on the defensive and that position is long overdue. No dispute, I stand with Newt!”
When will the media vet Santorum?
When vetted to the same extent as Newt; the voters will see a number of concerning things (Discussed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vX5YwME80cc and here: http://www.unitedliberty.org/articles/9734-the-problems-with-rick-santorum.) and his problem with women voters (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-8zaEyvRno) that will make them rethink their reasons for siding with Santorum (especially since he is NOT the Anti-Romney candidate as he endorsed Mitt Romney and his ideas in 2008: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iu50Hb61jVQ and fall back on Newts’ experience in getting Conservative legislation passed. (A quality currently lacking in Congress).
Santorum himself and Democrats for Santorum are encouraging Democrats to vote for Santorum in the Open Primary States.
Then there’s the whole issue of Santorum inviting Democrats via robocalls in Michigan and Ohio into the Republican Primary to vote for him knowing full well that they will vote for Obama in the general election.
In addition, there is also a campaign dubbed, ‘Operation Hilarity’ where Democrats are voting for Santorum in open primary states because they know that Obama will crush Santorum like a tin can in the debates. Watch an ad from ‘Democrats for Santorum”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9OXrnnmvdXg
United Against Romney
Let’s be real– it would help Santorum if Newt stayed in the race (which he will despite all the questionable talk) because Romney’s wall street funded Super Pac will have to spend money aggressively, attacking both Newt and Santorum (their current modus operandi) instead of just barreling Santorum with negative attack ads like Romney did to Newt during the Florida primary, where Romney spent $20 million in false, negative attack ads in efforts to blind the voters and knock Newt off message.
Newt agrees, “My view on that, is that the minute Romney has one opponent his Super PAC will drown that opponent in mud. That’s what happened to me in Iowa and Florida. It will eventually happen to Santorum and I think it is actually to our net advantage to keep Romney divided.”
Romney: No negative ad is too costly!
Meanwhile, Romney continues to spend money like he was printing it fresh off the press in attempts to cover his self proclaimed ‘progressive moderate’ record (watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtCuLjq_v0E) and to mischaracterize Newt with millions of dollars in false and misleading political ads (in in attempts to have people vote for him as the Anti-Newt candidate) which makes one question if Romney would continue Obama’s title as a ‘big spender’.
Newt on why he remains determined and his thoughts on the cancellation of the Georgia and Oregon Debate.
On a personal belief, Newt feels he has every need to stay in the race. “There are a lot of things I don’t agree with Romney and Santorum on. I don’t have an obligation to automatically salute as a conservative somebody who is a progressive moderate and somebody who ran up $1.7 trillion in debt. ” says the Former Speaker of the House, “Besides, if all the candidates are afraid to debate me- how can we feel confident that they are capable of debating Obama?” asks Newt referring to the cancellation of the Georgia CNN debate and the recently cancelled Oregon PBS debate.
Just like the Energizer Bunny; Newt keeps going and going and….
And so Newt and his campaign marches on, much like President George Washington and his troops on Christmas Day in 1776 (Learn more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLUuiP5O7XA) in pursuit of the Truth, Justice and to be a prime example of God’s Grace and Glory.
Time will tell who reigns as the ultimate victor but you can place your bets on Newt being a strong influence at the Tampa, FL Convention.
