I hope Newt Gingrich topping some national polls–and coming in second in others–is just a flavor-of-the-month thing in the GOP national job search for a Presidential nominee. But, we are only weeks away from the first primaries and caucuses, so this month’s flavor is a little too close for comfort. And a little too close to Al Sharpton, too.
He [Rubio] opposes a path to citizenship for illegal aliens and opposes the Dream Act, which would provide a chance for some undocumented youth to become legal.
Lionel Sosa, an adviser to Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign who’s long been involved with GOP Hispanic politics, said Mr. Rubio “will have to moderate his positions” on immigration if he is to attract a large numbers of Hispanics.
For the record, I know Newt Gingrich, was friends with his daughter, and he endorsed me when I ran for the Michigan House of Representatives, writing me a personal check for my campaign. I appreciate all that, and he’s a genuinely nice guy. But the Newt Gingrich of 2011 is not the Newt Gingrich who was Speaker of the House. I didn’t change my views or my core philosophy. He did. He’s now a moderate, who believes in global warming and joins scumbags like Al Sharpton in public service announcements. It sickens me that Newt Gingrich hangs out with and repeatedly congratulates this Jew-hating, anti-White race merchant. Apparently, he has no problem with any of that or Sharpton’s defamation of the Tawana Brawley victims, including prosecutors. And Gingrich recently called into Sharpton’s MSNBC show to wish him a “Happy Birthday.” Disgusting. That’s not who I want as President. And if I were any of this primary opponents in the GOP, I’d run ads with Gingrich and Sharpton together. It says it all.
Yes, Gingrich is a better choice than Barack Obama, but so are most people. That shouldn’t be the standard. Anyone who hangs out with Al Sharpton ain’t getting my vote . . . ever. And he shouldn’t get yours, either.
