Well with the upcoming Republican Primary in Florida, the current projection is that Mitt Romney will win this vote. Now not that Florida has that much to choose from in the Republican Primary, it should be well noted who the Republican Party is putting forth. As I have told many that the candidate will be Mitt because that is who Karl Rove has anointed to be the Republican Candidate and the Republican Machine is now bringing out all of the “Old Liners” like Bob Dole, and Tom DeLay.
Bob Dole attack ads were aired in Florida describing Newt Gingrich as “a one-man band who rarely took advice” and reminded voters of Newt Gingrich’s ethics troubles while in Congress.
Tom DeLay, the disgraced and convicted felon, who was the former House majority leader who handed out millions of dollars of “Jack Abramoff’s Lobbyist Bribes” right on the House Floor before they would vote on “Special Interest Bills,” said “Newt Gingrich was Erratic, Undisciplined.” (Yea as if Tom DeLay has the moral high ground over Newt).
Based on input from Republican donors and strategists who have expressed concern that Newt Gingrich could undercut the Party’s chances not only in the Presidential race but also in the House, Senate and Governors’ races. These well influence Republican donors are saying that if Newt Gingrich won Florida, they anticipate further efforts to pressure leading Republicans, including former governors like Jeb Bush of Florida and Haley Barbour of Mississippi, as well as officials who passed up Presidential runs this year, like Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana, to help build a firewall around Mr. Romney.
One should note what is unfolding among Republicans is the compelling test of just how much politics has been changed by the forces that gave rise to the Tea Party Movement. We are seeing a “Battle of Political Wills and Dominance” between the “Tea Party Come Lately” and the “Old Guards” of Karl Rove. Kenneth Duberstein, who was Chief of Staff to President Ronald Reagan said, “Ever since the Republicans lost the Presidency in 2008, the Party has been much more dominated by the grass roots than by the grass tops.”
The next line of attack against Newt Gingrich are the “Republican Propaganda Publications” which are writing in their current articles with examples such as:
“Whenever he (Newt Gingrich) waddles on stage anger envelopes him like a black aura. Newt Gingrich has the singular ability to replace optimism with the ugly shadow of cold cruel hatred and pessimism. He is the personification of the Dark Lord, Sauron.”
“One Newt to rule them all, One Newt to find them,
One Newt to bring them all and in the darkness bind them,
In the Land of Hatred where the Shadows lie.”
Then the article goes on to close, “Only the simple minded could cheer for such an odious character.” (Interesting because for my dedicated followers and readers, how long have I been saying this exact same thing and the Conservatives are just now noting this?…. Maybe I am having an affect within my Republican Party?….Yea I don’t think so either.)
But let’s get back to Mitty, the favored son of the “Old Guard Republicans” in this next election. If elected (fixed or stolen) President in November, Mitt Romney would have twice as much wealth than the last eight Presidents combined. At last account about $250 million dollars. From Richard Nixon to Barack Obama, Mitt Romney has more wealth today than the mentioned Presidents combined, but he is going to speak for and represent the Middle Class who are suffering the results of the legislation that has been passed and signed over the last 30 years. Of course there will still be those “simple minded” referenced above who have been made to “cheer for THEIR odious character choice” and believe that Mitt will be an imporvement over the current President because they are good “Conservative Republicans.”
We have recently learned that Mitt Romney pays only 13.9 percent of the wealth he has gained by investment, rather than by working, and that he has large amounts of money invested outside the United States, notably in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, and in Swiss banks.
So while he stumps and tries to promote “American JOBS and ECONOMIC RECOVERY” to the masses, he is apparently not willing to keep his INVESTMENTS in America!
