I honestly hate having to write this blog piece, because frankly, I despise this sort of idiotic tripe in politics itself. Newt Gingrich today was able to do something that not many people can do. Newt managed to pull off one of the stupidest, brain-dead, tone-deaf moves that any politician could ever do, one that reeked of utter desperation. Not to mention the fact that he lost my total support. On top that; he lost the damned primary in Florida!
What was it that Newt Gingrich did that invoked such fury from yours truly? Newt Gingrich played one of the worst, bottom of the barrel political tactic cards, that only a few mortal brave souls have played and have come out unscathed. Newt Gingrich waded onto territory that either brave souls or idiot fools—depending on your view of matters, have waded and lived to tell about it politically.
Newt Gingrich accused Mitt Romney of denying Holocaust survivors in nursing homes to be denied kosher meals. Here is the problem with it; not a damned word of it was even remotely true. In fact, a well-known Jewish Conservative has written a very good article defending Mitt Romney from these idiot charges. Now I should let it be known, I am not a Romney fan. If Mitt Romney is nominated for candidate for President by the GOP, I will vote libertarian. I did say that I would hold my nose and vote for Newt Gingrich in the primary and in the general election. Well, needless to say, that is not the case any longer. I just will not vote for a man who stoops to that low of tactics.
Therefore, I am making it official here on my blog; I will not be voting for the Republican Party in 2012 in the primary or in the general election. I am sorry, but dishonest politics is just immoral and what Gingrich did tonight shows me that Newt Gingrich is just another dishonest beltway-type that would stop at nothing to obtain power. Whoever is the winner of the selection process at the Libertarian Party; I will put my support behind, and that person will get my vote.
I realize that my vote will most likely put a dent the GOP’s chances of defeating President Barack Obama. Believe me when I tell you this, nothing bothers me more than knowing that fact. However, I just cannot and will not support a man who stoops to such beltway tactics such as this.
Admittedly, I have nothing put disdain for Mitt Romney, however, none of that disdain has anything to do with his religious affiliation. My disdain has to do with the fact that man is a habitual liar, the fact that he is a serial flip-flopper; my disdain is because the man claims to be a person from Michigan, when in fact that he has not lived here for years. My disdain of the man is related to the fact that he claims to be a rib-rocked Conservative, when in fact, Mitt Romney is nothing more than an indecisive moderate!
Furthermore, the reason for my decision is this; the race of the GOP’s nomination for President of the United States is not supposed to be a religious test. If that is the case in the Republican Party, then why in the name of the Almighty God of Heaven did Newt Gingrich use the Jews as a proxy to attack Mitt Romney’s Mormonism? I know the answer —-desperation. I do not wish to support a man, who instructs his advisors to play “Dirty Pool.” It shows of the man’s character and I find it lacking greatly. I will not call Newt Gingrich an Anti-Semite, as I do not know his heart or him personally. However, I found this attack to most untactful, idiotic and highly unbecoming of someone who is supposed to be a Reagan Conservative.
Therefore let it be known; I officially disown those running for President of the United States of America in the Republican Party. Sorry, but this freak show just got rather hard to bear any longer. Also too, please know that I am under no illusions about the Libertarian Party’s chances in the 2012 election. However, my vote will be of a protest of the beltway establishment’s tactics in the Republican Party. The Tea Party movement’s message was supposed to be, during its founding that said, during its railing against the Republican Party and the United States Government; “No more business as usual in the beltway!” The Republican Party was quite obviously either not listening or somehow that message was lost.
Having said all of the above, this bloggers vote will be going on Election Day 2012 to the political party that actually believes what it stands for —- The Libertarian Party. I might not agree with everything that some libertarians believe in; but at this point, I see no other party that I actually wish to waste my vote on.
