Newt Gingrich’s rapid rise from a has been to the top of the Republican presidential polls has Republican leaders wondering what happened?
They say he is not particularly honest and doesn’t share their values.
I think I know the answer. Republicans have “a do as I say not as I do attitude”. They don’twant government spending for programs unless it also benefits them. Social programs for the poor are a no-no, but don’t take away their social security or medicare.
Iowa evangelical Christians are flocking to Gingrich, a man who was unfaithful to two wives, paid $300,000 in House ethics fines and converted to Roman Catholicism a cardinal sin among evangelical Christians.
He speaks against government spending but has been paid millions in the government influencing business.
Republicans polled say they value his experience far more than his rivals. Here is a man who wanted Clinton’s impeachment when his sex scandal became public but showed no shame when he was married and had a mistress, an affair with a House staffer, now his wife.
Republicans want President Obama out of the white house so badly a Times-CBS poll, nearly half of Iowa Republicans said it’s more important to pick a nominee who can beat Obama than to have one who agrees with them on the issues.
Otherwords, screw family values, tax cuts for the rich, help for the needy, just give us someone who can defeat Obama.
So much for the 10 commandants.
