I am the Problem with the Republican Party

Ever since the GOP primary season started, I’ve been very displeased with Mitt Romney as the Republican Establishment’s anointed choice. He is not a conservative, but perhaps more importantly his health care record with Romneycare will absolutely prohibit him from being able to defeat Barack Obama in November. Conservatives don’t like him. Moderates don’t trust him. The only people who …

Santorum Pulls Ahead of Romney in Latest National Poll

The latest CBS News/NY Times Poll among Republican Primary Voters shows Rick Santorum taking his first nationwide lead against Mitt Romney, 30%-27%. New Gingrich, who led this poll just 5 weeks ago, fell to 4th with 10% behind Ron Paul’s 12%. This, the most volatile primary season in recent history, has shown that there really is no true front runner. …

Should Gingrich Step Aside to Spite Romney with Santorum?

In 1996, many conservatives were asking Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to step aside in light of his admission of violating ethics rules. He obliged back then. Today, many of the same conservatives (and a lot of newer ones) are wondering if the same thing should happen. This time, it’s not about what he did wrong but about what …

Santorum is Strengthening Obama’s Chances for Re-Election

Read the conservative response (which sort of agrees with me!) in this open letter to Rick Santorum. The only candidate who truly scares me is looking more and more likely to lose the Florida primary and therefore the GOP candidacy thanks in part to Rick Santorum. Despite Mitt Romney’s strong poll numbers against Obama, it’s easy to see that he …

The Drudge Report is Doing Whatever it can to Give Obama a Second Term

For a “conservative” news aggregator, the Drudge Report is doing its best impersonation of a liberal mainstream media opinion-sculptor as the clear lean towards the “Republican Establishment Candidacy” of Mitt Romney. This goes against the what the largest chunk of Republican voters want and it’s only one piece of the anti-Newt puzzle. What is it about Romney that makes so …

Bill Clinton is the Best Thing that Happened to the Gingrich Campaign

Two decades ago, Newt Gingrich would be unelectable. He has already been involved in scandals while in Washington and he’s demonstrated multiple challenges with his personal life that would have precluded him from being a viable candidate, let alone someone who is well-positioned to be the Republican nominee for President in 2012. His ability to run, to stay at the …

Newt Gingrich is the Only Candidate that can Beat Obama

South Carolina Republicans, take note before the upcoming primary. Newt Gingrich is the only candidate that can beat Barack Obama. This isn’t a statement that has been building up based upon continuous, unwavering approval from a passionate supporter. This comes from someone who has been studying every debate, as many speaking engagements as possible, previous history, Obama’s campaign strategies, and …

Gingrich: “I like where we are now”

One of the most asinine attacks currently being levied upon Newt Gingrich is that he is not a true conservative. It’s a desperate move by his GOP competitors, Mitt Romney in particular, as way to try to derail the momentum he has been building up the last couple of weeks ahead of the Iowa caucus. As he points out while …
