Newt Gingrich At CPAC

Yesterday I gave you Rick Santorum's CPAC speech. Today is Newt Gingrich's turn. If Santorum Rocked the place, Gingrich Tore it up. He got the crowd cheering by the end of his 20 minutes. CPAC was one of the organizations that Gingrich actually helped to found, as one of the few conservatives in Washington D.C. There are a lot of folks who are counting Newt out once again. I am not one of them. While I will concede that he has been hurt from Florida on, one of the things Mitt and or Santorum needed to do to put him away was to have this thing won by Super Tuesday, which sees a huge amount of delegates being awarded in States which are in the Gingrich Wheelhouse. That is not going to happen. The momentum from this primary has shifted back and forth and back again. We may yet get our conservative candidate. Gingrich is my choice, but I would also feel comfortable voting for Santorum.

Special note to the Paulbats. Under no circumstances would I ever vote for your man. While the Libertarians may share fiscal conservatism with us, there ends the relationship. His views on foreign policy have crossed the boundaries from loopy to idiocy to downright dangerous a long time ago. On those issues, he is as loony a Liberal as there is, and his agenda would result in the deaths of Billions. So stop with the, "Ron Paul is the only true conservative," nonsense already. He is an old hippie who took an economics class. His followers are young hippies with a slightly more annoying repartee than the originals.
