What if Newt Gingrich wins South Carolina? - Yahoo! News
Talk about tipping the GOP boat!
What if Newt wins South Carolina?
It could be a horse race.
Liberals will say that the southern evangelicals voted for him because they hate him so much.
And seeing that the left is so hung up on his adultry and making light of it means that possibly those evangelicals might be practicing forgiveness, and are focused on the current danger to the Republic, and that would be Obama and his damaging the economy.
Novel thought, eh?
If Newt wins SC? I'll pop the bottle of champagne I didn't drink on New Years...
I think it is hialrious that the Party of Morals is clinging to the Master of Immorals as their "anyone but Mitt" alternative. It makes me crack up laughing!
The Dems at the WH must be rolling in the isles. I heard this morning that even the Tea Party moralists are lining up behind Newt. He is soon to be known as the Champion Snake Oil Salesman of all time!
I think a Newt Win will have the following effects-
First and foremost, it will make him the only "Not Romney" standing. Santorum will figure he's made his point and he's had his fun. I never thought Santorum was running for anything other than redemption, and having made it this far, outlasting Perry, Bachmann, Cain and Pawlenty. He's got that now, he can go back to Fox News and demand a lot more money as an analyst.
So what you have in the GOP race is about 30% who have bought into Romney and the 70% who would really like someone else. Discounting the 12% who want Ron Paul, that still leaves Gingirch with about 58% of the GOP electorate to work with.
The other end result is that Romney has FINALLY gotten the scrutiny he should have gotten three months ago about his business dealings, what his real positions are and his whackadoo religion. When you get past the platitudes about "electablity" and "inevitability", what you have is a candidate who is personally very unappealling, isn't in sync with where most Republicans are, has no empathy with real Americans and their worries and belongs to a religion that is just plain strange.
Again, this should have happened three months ago, but the MSM avoided talking about it, but they can't keep pushing it off. They had every intent of talking about it in the general, but it's all coming up now because Newt brought these things to the table. (Except the Mormon thing.)
I won't tell anyone else but your fear is showing.
Again, maybe I'm getting old, but I remember liberals in 1980 saying, "Please Nominate Ronald Reagan and not George Bush, because Bush is electable and Reagan is so far off to the right he can't ever get elected. "
Need a reminder of how that turned out for you?
I think you also miss the whole point of "morals". We know people aren't perfect. We know marriages fail. Sorry, they just do, sometimes. Nobody really faulted John Kerry for his ex-wife. Or John McCain. They traded up.
then Florida will take center stage.
