A "real conservative" can't take the presidency

Newt  Gingrich should drop out

For months now Rightardia has heard Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich claim they are the real conservatives in the GOP race for president.

Santorim is certainly a social conservative who is more focused on religion, abortion, homosexuality and contraception rather than on real issues that affect most Americans.

Newt Gingrich has southern fried credentials that will play better in the South than Simple Rick who is from Pennsylvania, which is Yankee territory.

Ron Paul's oddball libertarian conservatism appeals to many people who are younger, are racist, anti-Semitic and disenchanted with the country club mentality of the GOP. Libertarianism makes up about two per cent of the electorate so his chances are slim and none.

Does Rightardia think Paul is racist? No. we don't. He has some followers who certainly are.

Mittens is clearly more to the center than the others. Elections are on in the center, not on the lunatic fringes that Santorum, Gingrich and Paul represent.

Gingrich says that Romney is a  weak GOP candidate and "almost all conservatives are opposed to him." Newt considers Romney a " disconnected establishment figure."

What Gingrich doesn't get is that he doesn't offer a serious alternative to Romney. 

RedState said this: 

The buzz in Washington now is that the Republican Establishment fears Gingrich will cause them to lose the House and not get the Senate. 

In other words, Newt's nomination would lead to another  Democratic sweep of the presidency, the house and the senate. 

Rightardia also agrees with Rick Santorum. Gingrich should drop out because Simple Rick has emerged as the alpha male conservative.

All Gingrich's presence in the race is doing is weakening Santorum which is a big help to Mittens. 

If having a conservative nominee is important to Newt, he should drop out. 

Could a 'real conservative" win the election in 2012?

We don't think either Simple Rick or Newt have any chance at all.
