Gingrich may run in ’08

Posted by on June 11, 2006

WaPo reporting that Newt might run in ’08 of a leading contender doesn’t emerge by next year. I keep hearing about George Allen but he isn’t stepping up just yet. Frist and McCain are jokes and I’m not sure there is anyone else in the wings. Allen seems to be pretty conservative socially but that’s not what we need right now. We need someone who understands that wanton spending in Congress will kill us, that the barbarians will certainly kill us, and that you must meet the domestic enemies of America on the field(that is the airwaves) when they print, report, or broadcast outrageous statements. The current crop of Republicans just don’t get this. Newt get’s it dead on here:

“We have a choice between those who are failing to deliver and those who are unthinkable,” he said, adding that he would put “even money” on the Democrats taking back the House this fall. “Neither party currently is where the country is.”

Gingrich has his personal problems and there was a day when I said I would never vote for him. Looking at what is sitting in the wings on the Dem side versus what the Reps have lined up and I’m left to wonder, are there any Conservatives left in Washington. That’s what it’s going to take. We MUST have a hardcore Conservative across the spectrum. With the Democrat leadership that’s out there, there is no compromise unless we are willing to compromise our core principles. I, for one, do not want to see that happen.

So, it’s gonna be “RUN NEWT RUN” if the Conservatives don’t trot someone else to the front.

    I dunno. I want a real conservative in there. I remember him caving when Clinton shut the government down, and that was the beginning of the downfall. I want to see if he has the fiscal policies we need.

    Right now, no one seems to have a grip on what it will take from a fiscal and monetary policy standpoint. We are heading for an economic meltdown.

    If Newt has the stones to lay it down hard, I’ll consider voting for him.
