    Positive is his only choice

    Positive is his only choice

    I don’t think Newt really has any choice but to stay positive.  Deep down I think it’s what people want, and in any event, he doesn’t have the money to flood the airwaves in Iowa that way Paul and Romney’s SuperPAC are doing.

    My worry? Positive may be what people want, but negative wins, and we will not see until the general election how low Romney’s numbers can go until someone unleashes on him the level of attack being unleashed on Newt.

    Update: Rudy goes where no one — other than Huntsman in NH — has dared to go:


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.


    Quote from Newt’s smackdown of Piers Morgan when he tried to tell Newt what the reality of politics is: “The reality of politics is, if you have a good enough leader who’s positive enough, they can ignore the other candidates, they can create a positive majority around a positive set of solutions, and let the other candidate worry about me.”

    Yeah, I’d say positive is his strategy.

    Well wow. Rudy absolutely just drilled it straight out of the park.
    What is going on with the Republican establishment. Are they anti-conservatism? Or just pro winning at any cost? Well what is the cost?

    Independents and undecided voters are that way because the GOP has been weak and flip flopping for years. The GOP gives these indies nothing to rally around. The country is conservative. There are huge problems and the left is making it worse. For some incomprehensible reason, the GOP is afraid to embrace the principles that made this country great.

    I am so fed up with the mealy-mouthed vacillating. Romney embodies this. The left will pick him to pieces in the general because he has no core. Independents know this.

    What an awesome rant by Rudy. Evokes memories of when he was mayor and it was great to have him.

    And another reminder of what I can’t stand about Bloomberg, who is another excessively politically correct establishment favorite Romney-like technocrat Demo-Republicrat something or other that we are supposed to like because he is so much smarter than the rest of us. Although, Bloomberg at least built a company versus strip-mined it. One point for that.

    Go Rudy. And Go for whatever nominee is willing to stand up and fight without a whole lot of mushiness.

    Rush makes the claim that team Obama is writing off the white blue-collar vote. Newt claims that he convince the Reagan democrats to come back. Is it not true that Reagan democrats are viewed to be white blue-collar? If yes, this is a plus for Newt.
    I only have questions today. If you put all of the anti-Newt punditry in a room and then removed all of those from east of the Appalachians, how many would remain?

    Positive was the way to go for Newt, but unfortunately for Newt, he has recently gone on the attack and it has not gone over well.

    If there were still a few more months until Iowa, he could probably shrug it off if he was able to remain positive from here on out. But with Iowa now being so close, I don’t see how he can regain the momentum, whether he plays nice or goes on the attack.
