By now, everybody has seen the news yesterday about Gingrich stating he wholeheartedly supported major parts of the healthcare plan Governor Romney designed when he was Governor. Gingrich has been quoted as recently as May 2011 in support of key elements of the plan. Well, Gingrich is now starting to do the Michael Jackson moonwalk on us. Doesnâ€™t this video remind you of Gingrich in the news lately?
To be completely candid, I think Newt is better at the Moonwalk than Michael Jackson was! What do you think?
Do you die hard Romney fans remember Kevin Madden? He was Governor Romneyâ€™s spokesman in the 2008 campaign. This Reuters article just about says it all:
“What has to worry voters most is that Newt and his campaign are failing even the most basic tests,” said Kevin Madden, a former spokesman for Romney and an informal adviser to the campaign.
“How can you argue that youâ€™re equipped to take on Obamaâ€™s billion-dollar attack machine when you canâ€™t even get on the ballot in your home state of Virginia,” Madden said.
Many conservative Christians in Iowa are wary of Gingrich because of his marital infidelities and two divorces.
I think Gingrich is getting desperate. Watch him closely these next few days before caucus Tuesday. I believe we will see the true Newt emerge. Aside from the whining of late, and his Michael Jackson imitations, we will see his temper flair. Mark my words. He is simply outgunned and his team doesnâ€™t know how to handle it.
By the way, I predict we will observe Gingrich continue to fumble along and we will see him refer to those missteps as he always does by saying, “Well, that was a big mistake.”
Please, if you have not read this article by Dave, please read it and pass it along to voters in Iowa and South Carolina. Thank you!
