    Newt Gingrich is not conservative enough for … er … Romney supporters?

    Newt Gingrich is not conservative enough for … er … Romney supporters?

    I was on the road and in meetings all day, with only passing opportunities to log on.  But I see a trend emerging.

    Bloggers and websites which support Romney, explicitly in some cases, impilicitly in others, are making lists of reasons why Newt Gingrich is not conservative enough, finding anywhere from 5-10 positions he has taken over 30 years in public life which render him not the conservative savior.

    Don’t fall for it.

    More tomorrow, when I’ll have a longer post about my views on Newt, and the circular firing squad being created with the intention of leaving Romney the last candidate standing.

    Right, because NO ONE has criticized Romney this cycle.

    Why is okay to criticize him and not the others?

    Newt is still for Medicare D, don’t think he renounced support for cap and tax, definitely still favors ethanol subsidies and “green” tax credits, etc. But the disqualifying thing about Newt – other than a lack of administrative experience – is the absolute certainty he will manage to tick everyone off sooner or later.

    Palin’s term from six weeks or so ago seem very prophetic: “Flavor of the Month.” Trump, Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Gingrich. Get your tuitsy-fruitsy ice cream here!

    Not a vote has been cast yet. But people are complaining about the “Establishment” or the “Elitists” in the Party which is “forcing” their will upon us.

    Are they paranoid nuts?

    I’ve participated in Republican primaries for forty years, and not once has anyone tried to tell me who I had to vote for, no “establishment” figure ever pressured me. Our process is open and democratic – unlike the Democrats who reserve 20% of their delegate seats for party bosses, elected officials, union thugs, and former Politburo members (which segment nominated Obama), virtually all our delegates are chosen by the people in primaries and caucuses.

    No back rooms, smoke-filled or otherwise, all out in the open.

    It seems to me some people want to label anyone they don’t like as “RINO,” “Elitist,” or “Establishment.”
