I wish we could all afford to be like Newt Gingrich. Gingrich is obviously someone who is used to getting what he wants. If he doesn’t get it, he throws a childlike tirade.
He threw a fit when Romney ran an attack Ad that derailed his bid for the Iowa primary win. If you are from Iowa and you haven’t seen it, you’re a Democrat and you don’t watch TV. Suffice it to say, it was a pointed attack on Gingrich, labeling him as a corrupt politician, using his influence for personal enrichment and it is accurate.
He subsequently launched Obama’s campaign for re-election by producing and running an Ad against Romney, his years at Bain, a private equity firm and Romney’s involvement in some of Bain’s less successful ventures, costing people jobs. NEWT, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!? First, you, as a business owner, know full well there are good reasons and bad, to get into bed with a private equity firm. The good is personal enrichment and potential for tremendous growth and success for your business. The bad is accountability. Once you make a deal and accept their money, it’s produce results or die.
Everyone with a “lick of sense” as my granddad used to say, knows that. So here’s the bottom line in a capitalist society in capitalist term, “like it or leave it.” Go live in Greece.
The Gingrich’s wife No.2 goes on TV and says he wanted an “open marriage.” OK guys? If you are a regular guy, you may look twice, conjure up the thought and move on. Not Newt. Newt thinks so highly of himself, he thinks he’s “entitled” to an open marriage.
Now Newt claims he’s found religion. He’s sorry for his past indiscretions. I think Newt knows Newt in current form wouldn’t find a woman willing to enter into an open marriage unless he paid for it. So when the mainstream media calls him out for his delusional behavior he throws a fit on national TV and gets an ovation! I don’t agree with ABC for airing his former wife’s claims against him, but once said, who is going to blame the media or for that matter the voters to question his judgment.
We can criticize a man, Romney, who has been married to one woman, a Mormon, for over 35 years and makes lots of money and we consider that shameful, but a man who takes money for political favor, an influence peddler and pays alimony is suddenly the new messiah for the Republican party?
I can’t help but think about the famous interview Jay Leno did with Hugh Grant when he cheated on his beautiful wife, actress Elizabeth Hurley. Jay Leno simply said, “What were you thinking!?”
It’s been a long 3 years! We need some R&R. Romney and Rubio for President/VP!
