    Newt gravitational pull

    Newt gravitational pull

    Frank Luntz did a focus group on Hannity last night regarding the Las Vegas debate.  The group confirmed my view that Newt is rising.

    I can’t find a video of it, but NewsMax has a partial transcript.  The group found that Newt won the debate hands down, and reacted very negatively to Perry.

    I’m beginning to be drawn into the Newt gravitational pull.  Scream at me to stop.  Or give me a push forward.  In the comments.

    Update 2:35 p.m. – Interesting, a lot of comments about Newt’s baggage.  Not unexpected and not out of line.  But … whatever happened to not letting the other side pick our nominee?  If you oppose Newt because you think he’s morally unfit, that’s one thing.  But if you think he would be the best nominee, why let the likely attacks by the press and AxelPlouffe deter you?

    And, if anyone thinks any Republican candidate is more free from attack than Gingrich, Rick Perry’s campaign previews how Romney will be attacked by Obama (it’s also not hard to dream up Obama attack ads on Perry featuring a certain rock)(h/t Public Secrets):

    Aside from Ronald Reagan, Newt Gingrich is the only Republican who has succeeded at reining back government at the federal level in my lifetime (I’m 57). He is the author of the Contract With America, that accomplished more of the conservative agenda in 100 days than the rest of the Republican party managed to accomplish in the next 14 years. He is also the author of the highly-touted surpluses that the Democrats have been trying to attribute to Bill Clinton — and into which Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming.

    If Newt does NOT win the nomination, we should insist that whoever DOES win it hire Gingrich as his national policy adviser. Gingrich is clearly the best thinker in the Republican party.

    Anybody concerned about his famous “baggage” should consider: any candidate that does not have similar baggage now, will have it 3 days after receiving the Republican nomination. It’s what Democrats do to Republicans. Gingrich obtained this baggage by succeeding at putting the vile Bill Clinton on a leash. If the Democrats can make villains out of the likes of Ken Starr, Dick Cheney, and Sarah Palin, they could make a a villain out of Jesus, Mary, and Saint Francis. So stop letting vile accusers from the left pick your candidates for you.

      Exactly.. Excellent post..

      Let me also say, like I state earlier to Joy..

      Newt looks so good, because the rest look so bad.. but that does not take away from Newt.. even though he has his issues as well..

      Unfortunately, there isn’t one person who is the complete Conservative Ronald Reagan package.. so with that being said, Newt is the only one, who has the wherewithal, the knowledge, the intelligence, and experience, to make the best, of a somewhat dreary and even pathetic looking bunch of Presidential hopefuls..
