It seems to me that the Republican party conceded the upcoming Presidential election many, many months ago when they started promoting people like Michelle Bachmann, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich for possible candidacy.
The GOP knows they won’t win this year, that’s why these are the primary candidates we’re seeing out of their camp. No Republican with a decent shot at the Oval Office is going to waste their ‘go’ at the spotlight this year.
Gingrich knows this too. He also knows there are few other ways to get more publicity than to run for President of the United States. He never wants to actually be President. All of this first-class traveling around, the speaking engagements, television appearances, the fancy meals and benefit dinners – in the end all it will help him do is sell more books and make more money. The only one that knows it’s a joke is him.
Newt is out there having a grand ‘ol time at the expense of those who have donated to his campaign. He must think it’s hilarious that millions of people are willing to vote for him even knowing what they know about him – or maybe I’m the one that finds it hilarious. Either way, I found the recent interview on ABC news telling of what kind of administration to expect. That’s the idea behind the campaign. It’s got to be too crazy too win so that he won’t actually become president. Ahem. Lunar colonies.
If the Republican’s behavior in the 2000 elections has taught us anything, it’s to VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. If you haven’t registered to vote click here to find out how and stay tuned for the release of Gold’s Voting Guide, 2012 Presidential Edition later this year.
