Should we be scared of Newt?
Now while I am miffed that he managed to get on top despite his cheating(not the issue, other than the right wing are hypocrites if they are going to go with him). And his traveling on the tax payer's dime on the cruise. And his Tiffany account. AND his own campaign is to me an outright scam in the form of a book tour to line his own pockets.
Despite all that he is now on top. The right wing claims to be so big on morality but is choosing the most corrupt politician to be their pick. Even in his prior stint in congress he was investigated several times for ethics violations. Not to mention he was the most ineffectual Republican out of the bunch.
Some polls now in swing states put him ahead of Obama. If I have to live under a Republican president Romney would be much more preferable to me. Newt scares the shit out of me, mainly because of his prior ineptness and investigations. But just as much in his hypocrisy in being part of a club that investigated the sex habits of Clinton, even when the act was of consent.
I wonder if Republicans would not jump on Obama, if instead of meeting voters, Obama was doing book tours to line his own pockets and used the donations of Democrats to fund that book tour?
I can think of Republicans whom, if they were the only person running for President I would rather have in office. Reagan and Bush Sr come to mind. Newt scares the shit out of me because he seems to be even more inept than Bush Jr and far more of a criminal.
How the fuck he is still in this race is beyond me other than the voting Republicans simply don't want Romney. I really hope that if nominated Newt's stench will be so bad at that point the swing voters wont show up to the polls.
This just shows me that the Republican party really does not give a shit about morality like they claim. It is all about being a gang and winning a turf war. Otherwise the lot they came up with in this cycle would not be so slimy.
Does anyone here think Newt can win the Presidency? I still have my doubts and I think by the time the general election hits, he'll flame out and lose to a wide margin.
But part of me says "holy fuck how the hell is this happening". Then I think about how Bush Jr won with all his fluff and ass kissing.
The thought of Newt as president really scares the shit out of me. Newt makes Romney look like a Democrat.
