$2.50 Terrifies Obama – Newt Way Up With Independents


(NOTE:  This post was written with the editorial “assistance” of a 3 pound, 3.4 months old attack kitten.  Any errors are hers.  She is practicing how to pounce.).

Back in January, after Mitt managed to skulk around and carpet bomb Newt in Florida, the press declared him DOA.  They basically decided to cut him off, destroy him, and declare his campaign at an end.  It didn’t matter what was going on in the real world, the MSM is in the tank for Romney.

Nothing really matters here.  It’s that simple.  The MSM wants Mitt Romney to be the nominee.  If I were one of his supporters, and i NEVER will be, I would be very concerned over the way the MSM is so much in love with him.  With the exception of the MSM and a handful of so-called conservative pundits, no one else in the “conservative” media is supporting him.

Are people so blind that they cannot see the MSM wants Mitt Romney to be the one who goes up against Obama?  I would sure be asking why, if I were a supporter of his.

There’s only one logical answer – Obama will cream him.  He has no ideas or originality.  All he can do is pour a tremendous amount of money into a campaign to destroy his opponents to the point where people are so discouraged they don’t bother voting in the primaries.  For a person who is alleged to be the economic salvation of our nation, his profligate campaign spending should be enough to worry a person.

Obama’s team is terrified of Newt.  He has found his “platform”.  The problem is the fact that His Mittenship refuses to debate him.  The MSM has declared him dead.  The only support he is getting is from the poor voter – who doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell.


“...While the mainstream media stayed focused on the game of checkers between Mr. Romney and Mr. Santorum, Mr. Gingrich forced President Obama into an astonishing game of chess….

In a 30-minute video titled “$2.50 per Gallon Gasoline, Energy Independence and Jobs,” Mr. Gingrich unveiled his vision for renewed American prosperity centered around oil and natural-gas production. … Meanwhile, Mr. Obama… began floating his latest green fantasy of harvesting algae to cure the pain at the pump.

Panicked by Mr. Gingrich, Mr. Obama was forced off his game and repeatedly tried to respond, only making matters worse for himself. He stayed true to the Democrats’ anti-energy agenda and mocked Republicans for wanting to drill for new oil. …

… “So in the area he controls, production is down and the area that is hard at the free enterprise stuff where people get rich, production is up. So he is now claiming credit for the area he can’t control in order to have us think he is actually for what he opposes.”

Mr. Gingrich reduced the once-confident “Yes, we can!” 2008 version of Mr. Obama into the backpedaling “It’s not my fault” 2012 version right before our eyes. A defensive Mr. Obama dissembled: “We know there’s no silver bullet that will bring down gas prices or reduce our dependence on foreign oil overnight.” Wait, what about that algae?

Newt had Barack right where he wanted him.

“…With three signatures, Mr. Gingrich instructed the president, “you would have 2.3 million barrels a day of additional energy in the United States. So I would say, we’re not looking for silver bullets. We’re looking for presidential leadership.” Check and checkmate…”

  1. I got a call from Gingrich’s political campaign this morning asking for his vote. The recording was all about being pro-life and nothing else. While many people in my area are pro-life, it was not the message I wanted to hear. I would have preferred hearing about getting rid of The Affordable Care Act, reducing the price of gasoline etc. I regret that his message could have been better.
