Notes from Newt on Earning GOP Nomination

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 $16 million 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.

Crystal: “Sorry you feel that way. I feel like Newt is traitor to his DELEGATES+SUPPORTERS who stick their necks out for him+then he runs haphazard, SLOPPY campaign. Your hatred should be directed at him.”

Mata: Go to hell

The main way the nomination process works is candidates compete in primaries or caucuses to win delegates toward the magic number of 1,144. Logic tells us a candidate needs to win races to rack up delegates. This isn’t rocket science but basic math. That said there are other paths to the nomination like a brokered convention. Newt’s new strategy is making himself a “big choice convention” candidate where he will win the nomination in a brokered convention, assuming Romney arrives without the necessary 1,144 delegates.

In a brokered convention, all the pledged delegates are released and can cast their votes for a different candidate but according to RNC rules, a candidate must arrive at the convention with at plurality of delegates won across a minimum of five states, which Newt has yet to do. Yet, Newt insists he will be the GOP’s Harding of 2012.

Anything’s possible and nowhere in the rules of  running for president does it say candidates must drop out of the competition. Rather than hating me because I point out Newt’s flaw as is lack of  organization, Newties need to demand Newt man up and become the candidate we thought he was. With the lack of more wins under his belt, I’m having a difficult time understanding how Newt thinks he can woo delegates with conviction to vote for him in Tampa. If he can’t achieve the basics of getting on ballots and winning, how can we trust him with being POTUS? Organization is more than 50% of the job.

If Newt is indeed the most qualified conservative in the race, why has Santorum and Romney won more contests than Newt? Of late, Newt declared Romney needs “to earn the nomination.” Sounds like Newt needs to do some earning of his own and less talking about winning the nomination.

The time is now for Newt to either rise up or stand down. Republicans need to identify a candidate soon to take on President Obama. Otherwise we’re squandering precious dollars needed to defeat the billion dollar man in November.  Obama is the problem and this is the GOP’s race to lose.

    Newt’s pluck and conservative track record couldn’t save his joke of a campaign. He seriously offers to help presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney defeat the president.

    A note to all African American Republicans – from the Mormon Church “Not only was Cain called upon to suffer, but because of his wickedness he became the father of an inferior race. A curse was place upon him and that curse has been continued through his lineage and must do so while time endures. Millions of souls have come into this world cursed with black skin and have been denied the privilege of Priesthood and the fullness of the blessings of the Gospel. These are the descendants of Cain. Moreover, they have been made to feel their inferiority and have been separated from the rest of mankind from the beginning… we will also hope that blessings may eventually be given to our Negro brethren, for they are our brethren–children of God—notwithstanding their black covering emblematical of eternal darkness.” (The Way to Perfection, 101-02; emphasis added).

    A SECOND NOTE TO ALL AFRICAN AMERICAN REPUBLICANS – FROM THE MORMON CHURCH – “You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable and low in their habits, wild and seemingly deprived of nearly all the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind. . . . Cain slew his brother. Cain might have been killed, and that would put a termination to that line of human beings. This was not to be, and the Lord put a mark upon him, which was the flat nose and black skin. Trace mankind down to after the flood, and then another cursed is pronounced upon the same race–that they should be the “servants of servants;” and they will be until that curse is removed; and the Abolitionists cannot help it, nor in the least alter that decree (Journal of Discourses, 7:290; emphasis added)
    “Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be.” (Journal of Discourses, 10:110; emphasis added)

    Finally a Final Note to African American Republican’s – from the Mormon Church – “We will first inquire into the results of the approbation or displeasure of God upon a people, starting with the belief that a black skin is a mark of the curse of Heaven placed upon some portions of mankind. . . . We understand that when God made man in his own image and pronounced him very good, that he made him white. We have no record of any of God’s favored servants being of a black race. . . .

    You are correct. This is what happens when I try to work too early in the morning.

    Need to update your text above from $16 billion to $16 million. If Sheldon had given $16 Billion, Newt would probably be doing a little better.
