The word “neutering” was only to have a catchy title but upon some reflection that medical procedure might have solved lots of problems for several politician types including Newt and William Jefferson Clinton. It’s usually one of these two sins “that will do you in” to quote a local radio dude. Those sins are sex with women to whom you are not married and greed that feeds on lots of cash.
Well, when Clinton had a pizza party with only one guest and other odd things, he was promptly a proven liar, unfaithful to his wife, and showed enormous disrespect for the office of the President. But, most Americans soon forgave him, even after he was impeached in disgrace. In only a short time Bill Clinton was a hit on the speech circuit and in favor even with Republicans. Yea, they would throw a gut punch once in a while when it was convenient, but good time Bill won the day.
I have been an interested observer of politics, and politicians for a very long time and I have never seen such an orchestrated attack on a candidate! Newt claims the reason the GOP elite is going for his nads is that they are afraid he will actually make some big changes in Washington. He also says Mitt Romney will only manage the decay. After considerable thought, I completely agree on both counts.
Why else would Republicans in concert tear apart their own to this degree? I can’t imagine any other answer. Oh, is it that Romney is so great? None other than gut-punch-Ann Coulter has been getting in the view finder of as many cameras as possible saying Mitt is the most conservative of the lot of GOP candidates. What absolute nonsense! Hey, I like Coulter, but this time she is lying like a New Orleans fortune teller. I suppose she never took an honest look at Rick Santorum huh? They even propped Bob Dole up so he could take a swing at Newt. Talk about desperate!
Tomorrow night at about 11 o’clock pm eastern the Speaker will be beaten down to the ground. Most people, after being assaulted as Newt has, would simply bow out and get quiet, you know, let the wounds heal. With Newt? I wouldn’t count him out yet. I know he isn’t going to win, Mitt is. He is the hand-picked puppet. But I’d bet my hat “the Speaker” an’t done speaking. In my view it is refreshing to have a candidate running for a national post who has the back bone to say things that make liberal Democrats and liberal Republicans shudder. I say, Go Newt! There is no shame in going down swinging.
