I like the debates, because they showcase the Candidates’ abilities to think on their feet, and to expound upon their future view for America, and how they can best do the job America and the World needs done.
I don’t like that there are so many debates, since they’ve become regurgitation, and to a great degree have morphed into a series of reality shows for the networks.
I also don’t like them because the pundits, ESPECIALLY the LEFTIST pundits as we saw on the last ABC debate hosted by George Stephanopoulos and Diane Sawyer played one Candidate against the other to the detriment of all the Candidates.
ALL THE CANDIDATES SHOULD LISTEN TO GINGRICH:
At this point in the debates and the campaigns in general, there seems to be a strategy of mutual personal destruction amongst the people who want to lead the Republicans into the next election, WHICH IS A VERY BAD THING INDEED.
What the people really want to know from each of the Candidates is this:
WHAT WILL YOU DO TO FIX AMERICA IF YOU’RE ELECTED?
I don’t think the people want to see Romney eviscerate Gingrich just to see how savage Romney could be, or vice versa, to determine who has the best plan for America, since that tells no one anything about the bomb-thrower.
I cannot imagine how any clear thinking Republican really wants to see a CAGE-FIGHT amongst the Candidates; with biting, eye-gouging and hair-pulling, cause if that’s really the sentiment of the Republican Primary Voters, neither they nor their Party or the Candidate bomb throwers deserve to win the Presidency.
GINGRICH IS RIGHT – All of the Candidates should sell themselves instead of expending enormous amounts of money and energy to destroy each other. Otherwise, whoever is the last Candidate Standing, will be so damaged by their own, that Obama’s campaign would need little more than the sound bites and videos of Republicans savaging each other during the nomination campaign.
THE POLLS – POLLSTERS AND THE MEDIA:
All of the polls that change from minute to minute, and pollster to pollster, about who can beat whom under fantasy situations, do nothing more than influence the voters, rather than really understanding what the voters actually think.
In other words . . . the polls are the tails wagging the dogs.
And then there is the media, all of which are making a fortune out of the Primary Debates and Campaigns. And the more BLOOD that’s left on the floor, the BETTER it is for them. EVEN AMONGST THE SO-CALLED FAIR AND BALANCED FOX NEWS.
HE SHOULD SHUT THE HELL UP AND GO FIRE SOMEONE – PREFERABLY HIMSELF.
Anyone who wants to destroy Gingrich or other candidates via character assassination does not deserve the nomination.
If Gingrich really follows through with his pledge not to get into the dirt, he will continue to be the Candidate I support at this juncture.
I couldn’t give a damn about his past.
It’s not my business with whom he has slept or divorced. I don’t care that he made money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac while in private business. Although I wish he didn’t. But then again, in government, who hasn’t gorged themselves from the public trough?
And until such time as the rules are REALLY changed, I don’t think anyone who is in office today is without “sin”.
I don’t care that Gingrich posed with the Wicked Witch of California, and took positions when he was in government that he regrets today, and has apologized for.
WHAT I DO CARE ABOUT IS THIS:
In 1994, after 40 years in the political wilderness, Gingrich delivered a HUGE Republican House Victory with his Contract With America.
And when he was the Speaker of the House, he turned around what were sure deficits into huge surpluses. And he single-handedly FORCED through Welfare reforms that saved America a veritable long-term fortune.
Gingrich’s policies for the future of America are clear and dynamic. He has a BETTER grasp of history and politics than anyone I have ever seen or heard in government. And he is the BEST off-the-cuff debater I have ever heard.
More than that . . . contrary to the STUPID polls and the Republican INSIDERS who have their long-knives out for Gingrich, Gingrich CAN and WOULD beat Obama.
And the MORE the Republican INSIDERS savage Gingrich, the MORE I like him, since these are the same BAD ACTORS who’ve contributed to the mess America finds itself in today.
But after all is said and done . . . I am making this pledge:
I will use this Blog to support any Republican who wins the Nomination, even Ron Paul, who I think is as off the wall as they come, because that’s how much I think Obama MUST NOT GET 4 MORE YEARS.
