I listened to Newt Gingrich’s Iowa speech where he congratulated Rick Santorum for waging a “positive campaign” and it appeared this was an indirect jab against Mitt Romney since Romney is notorious for running nasty ads filled with rhetoric.
Gingrich also made it clear that his views are extremely different than Ron Paul’s foreign policy views. Newt’s speech in Iowa tonight further demonstrates to me that he will utterly crush Romney in the foreign policy department “as a Republican” much the same way we witnessed Senator John McCain crush Romney in 2008. Again, Romney has serious “Iran skeletons” that will be exposed in 2012 Senator McCain already exposed in 2007/2008. Keep in mind that President Obama signed the Iran sanctions early this morning and with Romney’s Iran history this will pose a serious problem with regard and specifically to GOP primaries.
It is clear with regard to the Iowa speech that Newt is flexing his Contract with America experience and touts himself as a “true” Reaganite. It will take a Reagan on steroids to win the 2012 elections, and Mitt Romney is NO Reagan. For instance, Ronald Reagan was against socialized medicine, and Mitt Romney has one huge RomneyCare skeleton in his closet to contend with regarding the GOP primaries and Caucus.
We foresee Newt Gingrich staying in the race much like we witnessed McCain stay in 2008. Gingrich can be paralled to McCain, while Mitt Romney will be paralleled to John Kerry the millionaire — except this time, Romney has a 99% Occupy Wall Street Problem. The cards are stacked against Mitt because his campaign is built like a house of cards.
