The more that I watch Newt Gingrich spar in debate, the more prominent he becomes.
If I had to choose another candidate besides Ron Paul, I would support former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
He has a troubled family life, no question about it. He has demonstrated time and against an unstable personal life. He has questionable leadership skills. However, the chief executive's primary power lies in his ability to persuade. He is a persuasive speaker. He has demonstrated a powerful capacity to integrate information, formulate a meaningful policy, and articulate his views. Not only can he savage opponents, he can turn his opponent's arguments back on them.
He has attacked President Obama with every lunge he makes at his GOP opponents. He has taken down rude and obtrusive journalists. He has brushed off damaging gossip about his previous marriages. Even the salaries which he received from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac cannot compare with the gargantuan growth of the federal government under Barack Obama. Newt Gingrich is an insider, but has also stepped outside of government, has formulated plans and policies, all of which can benefit our country.
I am still sticking by Congressman Ron Paul, but in the event of a brokered convention in which the true libertarian is no longer competitive, I will throw my support to former Speaker Newt Gingrich.
