Over the past week, I’ve been receiving lots of hate mail from fellow Newt supporters about my comments on CNN that if Newt doesn’t win more than two contests, he needs to consider dropping out. Staff are jumping ship like fleas running from repellent applied to a dog. Newt’s campaign CFO Roberto Coquis left the campaign recently. Casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, whose family has donated $16million to Newt’s PAC, said he thought “Newt had come to the end of the line.”
As a pledged delegate for Gingrich in Washington, DC, who cast my vote early for him, I’m not happy Newt hasn’t been winning and that’s a fact. I still maintain Newt is the best person to take the fight to Obama. As Speaker, he brought Republicans back into the majority rule in Congress after 40 years of the isolation in political Siberia. Newt worked with President Bill Clinton to balance the budget, bring unemployment down to 4% and reformed welfare. His Contract with America, “Promises made. Promises kept” isn’t like the failure of Obama’s Hope & Change, Promises made. Promises broken.
But we need to ask why Newt isn’t winning races? It can’t be just because Romney is running a negative campaign. If Newt had more money, he too could run negative ads against Romney like he did in South Carolina when his campaign had money. Newt also failed to get on Virginia’s primary ballot. Whose fault was that, Romney’s? The truth is when one runs for POTUS one must have an organized operation which in turn helps a candidate raise money so the candidate can advertise against his or her opponents. That’s why Obama raised $700 million in 2008, won the Democrat nomination and won the presidency!
Here’s what some people told me:
Marsha: I saw your comment about Newt Gingrich on CNN...
YOU are an EMBARRASSMENT to our party, AND to Newt! I cannot believe you are Newt's DELEGATE! I truly wonder if you aren't part of the Illinois/Chicago regime making us the #1 state for corruption! I'm SOOO disgusted with YOU!
Crystal: You need to be SOOOO Disgusted with Newt. Sorry you feel that way. Instead bashing me and his staff who are leaving him in droves. You should direct your anger at Newt, fish rots from the head down+I'm tired of his BS. He needs to act the candidate we all believe in a winner not a loser. Winners win and don't make excuses why they aren't.
Mata: Can't polive you change your position from supporting Newt , you tretor, make sure that all that support Newt know about you i well tell as many people as i can.
