Newt Gingrich finally suspends his campaign for the Republican nomination for President. Why anyone would ever have wanted to vote for him is beyond me, but mainly because he’s not a good person, not very nice, and this is a man who preaches about the current state of economic strife and our national debt, when he suspends his campaign amid bouncing checks and in debt to the tune of a staggering $4.5 million. So, how would a man like this be able to cut the deficit, when he can’t even run a campaign without sinking into debt? It just shows that Americans are partisan, silly and willing to back a party, not a man or a plan. This one was a disaster from the very beginning, but thankfully his follies now come to an end, and also his career as he knows it.
Having spent four years trying to preach racial hatred, actually 40 years at doing that, but deciding to go out and speak the radical nasty racist and bigoted words his party always emboldened him to do. Whenever he did it in the past, Republicans would smile with pride and proclaim, “He’s so intelligent, he’s a thinker!” Well, from there they now turn on him, because they now realize their radical nastiness is not acceptable to young people anymore in this country. But as my grandmother always said, “It’s still a pig, no matter if it’s washed up and perfumed or wallowing in the mud.”
Gingrich characterized his time on the trail as “a truly wild ride.” He said that he and his wife Callista had “an amazing year.” Addressing the future of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign, Gingrich said that he’s been asked whether the former Massachusetts governor is “conservative enough.” He said the contest “isn’t a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan.” Rather, he said in taking a shot at President Barack Obama, it’s “a choice between Romney and “the most radical, leftist president in American history.” And possibly coming from the most radical right-winger, maybe the former disgraces Speaker has a point. You decide.
Gingrich also made critical remarks about the way things are done in the nation’s capital, calling the Senate a “stunningly dysfunctional institution.” But while he was busy doing what he does best, slinging mud and hatred on to others, his debtors wonder why he never made any comments about paying them off.
As the race for the White House goes on, Romney said in a statement, “Newt Gingrich has brought creativity and intellectual vitality to American political life.”
