Tennessee politics behind the scenes
You are really stretching what he said.Doubting a third party run is nothing new. The system is biased against anything but D's and R's.He said he doubts that Newt is a true conservative based on his voting in Congress and he can't ever remember Gingrich being a part of the conservative group on true conservative positions.On Newt's affairs, when asked if they were "out of bounds" he didn't say no, and he pointed out that it's nothing new and he wished the media hadn't spent so much time focusing on Herman Cain's scandals. That is hardly, "does not care about Newts past marriages."Ron Paul is open to people coming around to freedom, but when asked if he'd support Newt he said there are issues where it would be quite difficult. In other words, he's saying Newt would have to change more positions (that should be easy for Newt) and show a lot more sincerity, because his current wayward positions aren't convincing. He calls him out for serial hypocrisy and says it wasn't too tough and didn't require being too creative.Stop straining at gnats and swallowing a camel.If Gingrich is the candidate that can win the general like you say, because His arguments are so tight he is near bullet proof," then it won't matter if a 3rd party candidate emerges.
Why all the attention to "he doesn't have a chance" Paul?"But I think there are some issues there that would be quite difficult. He really loves the Patriot Act and that means he doesn't care about the 4th Amendment and these kind of things so I'd have to be convinced, but he's sorta, you know, opening up my mind to the fact, uh, maybe he is sincere about the uh, federal reserve so that to me means I ought to keep an open mind."
I think I would rather have Obama than Newt "Climate Change" Gingrich.
