It’s official: Bye bye, Newt Gingrich – hello, Mitt Romney

Posted by: ST on May 2, 2012 at 8:09 pm » 17 Comments

The Gingrich campaign took its last gasp today – and a Romney endorsement is most likely forthcoming: Newt Gingrich officially suspended his GOP presidential campaign Wednesday – though it was more like another episode in the long goodbye that started weeks ago. “It has been an amazing year for me and Callista,” Gingrich, the former […]

 

Donald Trump to endorse Newt Gingrich?

Confirmed: The silly season really IS upon us! Oh well – at least this means Trump will stop talking the silly talk about possibly throwing his hat into the ring as an “Independent.” Next?

Posted by: ST on January 31, 2012 at 7:04 pm » 14 Comments

The polls close in most places in Florida now – in the panhandle they’ll close at 8 Eastern. Political pundits are predicting a “big” Romney win in FL.  I haven’t been following the polling numbers  closely, but apparently there’s been a double digit shift to Romney in the last week.   Here’s Drudge’s headline:   […]

 

Memo to the GOP Establishment: STOP trying to manipulate conservative voters (UPDATED)

Posted by: ST on January 27, 2012 at 5:26 pm » 39 Comments

Most people who know me understand that I rarely ever use the terms “RINO” and “establishment” seriously.  And in the instances I do, it’s usually sarcastically to make fun of someone one who has mistakenly interpreted my disagreement with other conservatives as a sign of my alleged “RINO” tendencies.   The terms “RINO” and “establishment” […]

 

Newt a “Reagan conservative”? Not so fast (UPDATED)

Posted by: ST on January 25, 2012 at 6:19 pm » 17 Comments

Was just on Twitter a few minutes ago and clicked on a link that my co-blogger Phineas Tweeted, which talked about how Newt Gingrich, who has claimed the mantle of “Reagan conservative” perhaps more so than any other GOP presidential contender this election cycle, was in fact not someone who always stood shoulder to shoulder […]

 

Newt’s South Carolina victory speech

Posted by: Phineas on January 22, 2012 at 1:01 pm » Comments Off

**Posted by Phineas Former Speaker Gingrich won a smashing victory in South Carolina, yesterday, shattering Mitt Romney’s aura of inevitability and, I think ending any idea that this is anything other than a two-man race between him and the former governor. (1) So, I think it’s worthwhile to see how Newt acts in victory. The […]

Someone buy this woman a big giant CLUE. Please: [CNN’s MARTIN BASHIR]: Let me play something that you said about the current GOP debate on the floor of the house on Wednesday. Just listen. I think what you said and what I was hoping to run is we find candidates like Newt Gingrich who simply […]

 

World Gone Mad: Romney sings Happy Birthday to Gov. Haley (VIDEO)

Fortunately, Nikki Haley doesn’t to worry about my vote since I’m not in her state –  at this point, my respect for her is dropping fast.  With that said, I have to wonder how South Carolina voters view this kind of sugary sweet suck-up BS? NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — Mitt Romney added a festive air to […]

 

In which Newt eviscerates CNN’s John King

Posted by: Phineas on January 20, 2012 at 8:02 am » 13 Comments

**Posted by Phineas There’s no other way to describe it: John King, moderating last night’s debate in Charleston, SC, opened with a question about salacious allegations made by Gingrich’s second ex-wife. The former Speaker then gutted King and the MSM in front of the entire nation, calling them out for their biased coverage. It was […]

 

Rick Perry drops out; I pout and move on

Posted by: Phineas on January 19, 2012 at 12:28 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas As I wrote on Twitter, I never get what I want. From Legal Insurrection, Governor Rick Perry has ridden off into the sunset. The race is down to Romney and Gingrich (1), now. While I’m disappointed, I can’t say I’m surprised; after starting with tremendous momentum, Perry blew it all in some […]
