Yes, I was terribly disappointed. I thought for sure Gingrich would take at least Alabama. I had a reader email me saying her mother is so mesmerized by Rick, she knew it would crush to know the truth I’ve written about the past 3 days. I understand. I’ve burned some bridges going after Santorum but only because the facts don’t lie and I can’t in good conscience face Thomas Paine in Heaven saying I was more worried about making people upset than telling the truth. And with one of 4 Alabamans saying they voted for Rick Santorum because of his “strong moral character,” I did the right thing to try to help them avoid what Obama supporters learned after their false fantasies.
I am somewhat consoled that Romney won nothing for if he did, we would be hearing for 3 weeks how since he won in the South it is all over. There would be calls for the Conservative boys to bow out so we could bring on Obama.
So I thank God that didn’t happen.
It’s true that in reality, the “win” didn’t change the delegate count all that much. Give or take, all candidates still split the delegates about 2:1 for Santorum. And it’s true that there are clearly enough “winner take all states” that play to the Gingrich game plan that he could still get to the convention with the most candidates, none having 1,144.
But it is also clear to me after analyzing the data, I must intelligently weigh the situation for what is the best prospect to beat Obama and sell conservative policies to the American people to save this Republic.
So, I am announcing that I, PolitiJim – Speaker supporter –
am calling on Newton Leroy Gingrich to quit.
This will come as a shock to many of you, but this country is in the most disasterous dilemma it has been in since the dark days of the late 1800’s. Some would argue that with another 4 years it is possible that instead of 46% benefiting from government gimmies – it might soar into the 60’s and we would perpetually become the country of Pompei.
We can’t keep playing politics as usual with our preferences for personality, positioning or posturing. We must rally around ONE candidate who will inevitably face a current President who:
- Will continue to nationalize private industry.
- Will continue to run rampant over Judeo/Christian concerns.
- Will ignore threats to Israel.
- Will undermine capitalism for unions…, even in the military.
- Will continue to crush individual initiative and anyone that would put willpower to the patriotic movement threaten his power.
I appreciate the service of Speaker Gingrich and all he has done for the conservative movement.
And I must now ask you to quit. So,…
Please quit playing around the fact of your accomplishments of the past. You have demonstrated more humility and honesty FACTUALLY than any other candidate in this campaign – but we need more of your forcefulness as you did at the close of the Alabama Forum when asked WHY Alabamans should believe you can get elected. (26:20 mark)
Please quit ignoring what your long timer friend/mentor, Moral Majority and Heritage Foundation founder said was your “primary objective as a conservative.” That is eradicating corruption and being a revolutionary for reform. You’ve begun by calling out Leon Panetta to resign. Good. You’ve criticized the attack on Catholics and Christianity by the administration and media. Excellent. But you and I know two things. First, there are many things you could be spearing the Spawn of Socialism including his unwillingness to fire Fast and Furious Holder, hiding emails with the IPCC the Freedom of Information Act, proven voter fraud against Hillary, refusing to comply with subpoenas on the Gulf oil spill AND the Georgia ballot initiative (and those upcoming), and yes – either committing or being complicit in allowing the forgery of official Hawaii state documents as Sheriff Joe Arapio’s investigation has just concluded. You went after Jim Wright and the communist coddling corruption when you had MUCH more to lose. You can do it and still be Presidential. But mark my words. As Trump saw, people are SCREAMING INSIDE THEMSELVES to know why our conservative media, our conservative elected officials, and our Presidential candidates are not addressing the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people.
Please quit waiting to tell people what you know about BOTH the Massachusetts Governor and Pennsylvania Senator. Again, Paul Weyrich PUBLICLY lamented Romney running as a conservative because he lied about what his obligation was to under the Massachusetts Constitution to force through gay marriage that even the Democratic Attorney General didn’t want. Go against the corruption in the GOP that BOTH Romney and Santorum represented with the (respectively) Pfizer payoffs and K Street initiative. In 2005, true PA conservatives called him a RINO. And a backstabbing, unprincipled one at that. I know you are committed to running a positive campaign on ideas and vision – which ONLY you are doing. But aren’t you sick of these guys who exemplify EVERYTHING you fought against in Congress passing themselves off as Puritans? (You also may want to please quit listening to my advice on this one. You are probably right but where is your James Carville or Lee Atwater to do this?)
Please quit holding back on painting the picture of a successful Gingrich Presidency. I was in tears watching the videos from 1994 when you told of where we could be as a country. Screw Jon Stewart and cynics. PEOPLE ARE DYING FOR A DREAM TO BELIEVE IN. You can move in an audience in the way NEITHER the quaffed or puffed one can.
There are, however, three things I would like you to NOT QUIT on.
- Replacing Barack Obama as our next President.
- Engineering a resurgence of conservative influence as you have done multiple times in the past.
- And, rebuilding the America we love.
I apologize on behalf of all the conservatives who continue to callously cast doubts on your deep concern for this country, and upon the breadth of your accomplishments upon which we are privileged to stand on today.
I apologize on behalf of the self-righteous who never walked in your shoes, and willingly turn a blind eye to the sins of their Barnabas, while falsely condemning you.
I continue to believe you were made for a time such as this
I continue to believe, that not only are Romney and Rick kindling for the Axelrod machine, they would have no idea of where to start to replace, reform and resurrect the liberties already lost in our Republic.
I continue to believe that God has given you Grace for this time. And as we know, He will often back you up against the Red Sea seemingly doomed to drown. You of all people understand the greatest victories come from the darkest hour. You often talk of Washington’s winter of 1776, when the troops had dropped to a couple of thousand and many of them with no shoes, frostbite and bloody feet.
We are with you Newt. If we have to keep fighting on bloody stumps in the dead of night for what we KNOW is right. If that is what it took to start liberty’s lamp, we can do no less to makes sure it is relit.
There is an even better story of the King David’s best friend Jonathon. The Goliath-affiliated Philistines had surrounded and terrified the Israelites to the point they were literally hiding in caves and holes in the ground. Like Washington, he was under equipped and outnumbered. Only he and his armor bearer ended up standing in this valley to the right with garrisons of Philistines peering down on them from an unassailable position above. All he had was courage, and a faith in God.
Jonathan said to his armor bearer:
Come, and let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For there is nothing to prevent the Lord from saving by many or by few.
Now where Jonathon got “a few” from just he and his armor bearer – we won’t know. I’m sure the armor bearer was wondering the same thing. But that wasn’t his position as a soldier. They had no reasonable hope of making it up the steep incline to the garrison – let alone defeat a mighty army by just the two of them. And even envisioning an attack uphill, against an army of so many, with inferior weaponry and disadvantage, this armor bearer said to his leader, what we say to you.
Do all that is in your heart, Newt. We are with you.
And that moment in history turned out very well too.
