Remember how we told you that Beck alleged on the Fox Business Channel that Gingrich was so similar to President Obama as a progressive, that the reason tea party baggers would vote for him instead over the President would be because of race? He as good as called Newt's tea party supporters racists.
This guy has always been about himself. You know, while you’re sitting there watching him talk about the food shortage stuff, he doesn’t tell you this ties to the Mormon Church. He doesn’t talk to you about his investors. He doesn’t tell you that they’re paying for him to create a crisis. He always talks about Cloward-Piven and how Rahm Emanuel said ‘Don’t let a good crisis go to waste,’ but creating a hysteria that there’s going to be food storages because of chaos that is coming – he is profitting off this as well. There is a financial stake for him with food storage companies that advertise on his site. This guy is a huckster. He’s always been a huckster. It was only a few years ago that he was a shock jock, that he was a morning zoo guy. And he’s been taking people’s content for years and not crediting it.”
Gingrich, who's popping his buttons over his polling successes, may be coming back down to earth. Besides right-wing pundits, former Republican Housemates, the business community, and radio hosts clawing at him, it's becoming clear the South ain't sold on Newt and neither are the evangelicals in the Southern-based GOP. Never mind the early polling from Florida and South Carolina.
Couldn't even begin to predict how this uniquely strange primary will come out- we think Iowa will pick none of the above by choosing a dark horse like Santorum or Paul, (!) or Bachmann.(not to worry, they're not that dark).
As we see it, each of these Republicans- especially Romney and Gingrich- are deeply flawed, and the GOP's chance of a lifetime will be squandered by squabbles about ideology and irrelevant (to governance) social issues, religion, or marital infidelties.
