The Gingrich Disaster in South Carolina

Newt GingrichNewt Gingrich, riding high on his attacks on the media, received 41% of the vote. The problem with this is that Newt Gingrich’s views change literally by the minute and he has held far more positions on both sides of the issues than has Gov. Mitt Romney. Because I am a Washington insider and because I do know Newt Gingrich well, I can say with clarity that if he is the Republican nominee for president Barack Obama will win a second term and the Republicans will lose control of the House and drop seats in the Senate. During a second Obama term the pro-life movement will be crushed using Obama Care and the United States will become a welfare state. Religious freedom as we know it will end, with the government controlling who is hired and fired by the church and dictating what can be said from the pulpit.

The day Gov. Rick Perry dropped out of the race, Fox News commentators said it was really bad news for Santorum because he would now finish last behind Ron Paul. The final polls showed Rick Santorum at 9%, but on election day he nearly doubled that, decidedly defeating Ron Paul. After the departure of Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry, the only consistent conservative left in the GOP primary race is Rick Santorum. Both Gov. Mitt Romney and former Speaker Newt Gingrich had supported the same medical insurance mandates as Barack Obama. Gingrich appeared in a TV ad with radical leftist Nancy Pelosi promoting “green energy.” As for Ron Paul, his foreign affairs views are to the far left of Barack Obama’s.
