As you know by now… Newt Gingrich as won the South Carolina Republican Primary. Only about 7% of South Carolinians voted in this primary. This is pitiful. Sad. This is why we cannot do much in this country.
I love this little pic:
Anyway… tonight, the party that has preached family values and the moral character of a candidate simply turned a hypocritical eye and, at least in South Carolina, voted for Newt Gingrich who has used every known card in the past few weeks to gin up votes for himself. As Jim notes, this is, well, actions of reprobates. As Tim noted earlier this week, a worldview matters. I agree… Brian is questioning whether or not a candidate’s sexual ethics should play a part in our choosing of them. Newt’s ethics, which are none, relies on one simple principle: What is best for him. He is like a baby, in that what he wants, he must have. He uses things to get other things. While indiscretions are one thing, for Newt, there is a solid pattern seen in his life. He ditches what is no longer desirable to him, and seeks to trade up, even if that means breaking some of the most sacred vows that one can take. There is a difference between humans being humans and a man who has built his entire life on the use and abuse of others to profit himself.
By the way, look at Bob’s post.
There are two Republican candidates which I wish could have been in South Carolina. One is Jon Huntsman while the other is Mitch Daniels. I’m not going to pretend that I am a Republican in any way, but I believe that in a contest between the current President and any of those two, the United States would win.
