Quote of the Day: The Case for Newt

"The case for Newt is that he's nothing like that guy who used to be governor of Massachusetts. The case for Romney is very similar."

~Current issue of National Review (page 6)

The corollary:

The case against Newt is the's just like that guy that ran the House in the mid 90's, the case against Romney is the same.

John Ziegler makes a pretty compelling case against Newt here:

I think Newt could win.. in 2012. But then he'd be defeated by Hillary in 2016. No thanks to that.

Do we really need commie Romney in the White House?

Newt of course isn't any better but he does drive liberals and R.I.N.O.s crazy...

Newt is not a conservative so most Republicans have nothing to celebrate if he is the nominee. As a candidate he has too many negatives and character issues to be very effective and could certainly lose to Clinton this time around if Obama chooses to step aside or even to Obama if both revert to form.

He is probably the best thing that could happen to independents and the marginal parties.

"He is probably the best thing that could happen to independents and the marginal parties."

In other words, you think he is the best thing that could happen to Obama, because a 3rd party run by Ron Paul or some other quack would ensure a 2nd term for the worst President in history.

Not at all. First, if you get Nader, Trump, and others to also run as independents Dr. Paul can win because he will attract many of the pro-peace and small-government/fiscal-conservative voters.

The last thing that the US needs is a nutcase like Newt trying to pass himself as a pro-market, small-government type. The danger to the Classical Liberals or the last vestige of the Old Right Conservatives does not come from the left but from right wing presidents pretending that they believe in free markets and individual liberty even as they significantly expand the size of government. It is because of such charlatans from the right that the general public confuses corporatism with free market capitalism and believes that social democrats are more humane and ethical. The last thing that those who support individual liberty need is another such idiot.

Of course, those of us who have bet that voters will continue to fall for such deceit can make a lot of money if Newt were to win. For us a Newt or Obama victory will produce a large personal gain even if it condemns the country to more stagnation and poverty.

But if I'm not misunderstanding you vangeIV then you think its O.K. that Ron Paul passes himself off as a small-government type?

He is a small government type. He has never voted for any budget that included a deficit. The fact that he wants Congress to have a say how the money that is being spent is allocated may upset some people but it does not bother me.

Of the GOP candidates Dr. Paul is the only one who has propsed real cuts to the deficit. The rest are talking about cutting the rate of expansion of the spending. He is the only consistent fiscal conservative running and the only one who would cut the size of government.

Newt is the Republican Bill Clinton. The difference is, Republican women have more sense than to vote for a serial aldulterer.
