While others have jumped on one or the other presidential bandwagons I have often held out. Four years ago I held out and did not jump on the Tennessee Fred Thompson bandwagon because I held out hope that one person would get in the presidential race.
He never did.
That man was Newt Gingrich.
Now its four years later and things are different. Newt is not only in but in and moving up fast. As many of you know I have always liked Newt Gingrich. I have always thought of Newt as an idea man in a field that is often devoid of creative idea people. A man who could sell our vision and message where others could not. A man who can unify where others could not.
Candidates have risen and fallen based on their performances at debates. Some go up for a short time then stumble back down. Newt has only gone up. He started off all but dead in the polls, he has climbed the polls after every debate. Debates have been the key and will be what wins the day in the presidential election when it is head to head with Obama.
Newt is a person who knows how and when to fight, but doesn't have to. His arguments are so tight he is near bullet proof. He is a person who always has had a way of presenting facts and issues in a historical light that connected with modern events. An ability to not just yell and scream to make a point but relate complex issues in ways that average people could look at and say "Yes, That makes sense to me."
A way of showing why our ideas are better and will work and not just ripping people down.
Yes, there were and are other quality candidates out there and any would be an improvement over our current president but one man, to me, rises above the others. While he may not be the perfect person, candidate or absolutely right on every single issue with absolutely no shortcomings, the perfect person with a realistic chance of beating Obama is not out there.
Newt is the man who can best pull the factions together and get it done.
I have been in talks with the Newt Gingrich campaign for some time (Even back before he was considered second tier much less first tier). Myself and Rep. Tony Shiply have agreed to be the statewide co chairs for the Gingrich presidency.
