Newt Gingrich’s campaign just released a new ad that highlights a Reuters interview with George Soros.  In the clip he says, “if it’s between Obama and Romney, there isn’t all that much difference except for the crowd that they bring with them.”

Ouch.  Here’s the ad:


President Obamney?  This ad provides what I think would be a painful contrast between Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama.  The only thing I disagree with is the candidate this ad promotes.  Rick Santorum is the clear conservative choice.  Other than that this is a powerful ad.

  1. Shane,

    Excellent post until the very end. I would vote for Santurum over Romney every day and twice on Sunday. I do like many of the things that Santurum says and stands for (immigration, sanctity of life) and I would
    vote for him over Romney and of course Obama. I will not vote for
    Romney under any conditions at this point. If Romney wins, it will send a big message that the 2010 Tea Party sunami meant nothing. Romney will govern to the left and will demoralize conservatives.

    However, I don’t see Santurum as the President of the United States. He has gone
    completely under the radar in terms of scrutiny and if he ever becomes a
    true threat to Romney, he will wilt under the scrutiny. Romney (and Obama) will easily be able to portray him as very extreme because of his stance on social issues. (Let’s face it, if this next election becomes about abortion and gays, we don’t have a chance.) I know that this will offend
    Santurum supporters, but Santurum has the personality of a wet dish rag.  I believe he appeals primarily to social conservative voters.

    I think we need someone with leadership qualities like Newt. Say what you want about Newt’s past, but he has been there fighting as a conservative for decades. I believe he has the ability inspire that Santurum does not. This is just one man’s opinion, and time will tell.

    Frankly, I don’t believe we have a chance in hell of winning the presidency if Mitt is nominated. If Santurum is nominated, I think it is possible. But, if I we are going to go down, I want to go down fighting for someone I can believe in. For me that is Newt.

  2. How I wish that I had a Republican presidential candidate that I could support. Some months ago I decided that I could support Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann or Rick Santorum. But even these three presented me with inconsistencies and practical problems. Our nation continues on an ever increasing slide into moral and cultural anarchy and leftist dictaorship and their is no honorable statesman to lead the way out of this calamity. But could an honorable statesman be elected in modern day United States?

  3. Just heard Newt weaking voice calling for a NO-HOLDS Barred/no moderator ala Lincoln/Douglas debate with Mr Mitt on the news break………..Look no one wants to sit and listen to him fart space dust out of his mouth for 2-3 hours, tell us what America needs in his vision…. maybe he can get a fresh Country song to go with the rap that came out last week….
