BOASTFUL NEWT GINGRICH, THE NOMINEE?
It is deja vu once again as the revolving chair of Republican Party's presidential nominee wanna-be front runner status has yet again shifted. The erstwhile Speaker and the man so mean as to divorce his cancer-stricken wife on her sick bed, Newt Gingrich of Georgia, is now the latest prince on the saddle. Icheoku says how long his reign will last is anybody's guess; but no one should underestimate the man who rebounded after his entire campaign team left him in the middle of the water this summer and nearly drowned his presidential nomination bid.
From Mitt Romney to Michelle Backman to Rick Perry to Herman Cain, this mercurial and constantly changing very ephemeral front runner status has now foist on Newt Gingrich. Icheoku says what an early Christmas gift this would be for President Barack Obama and the Democrats should Newt not be displaced within the next few weeks and goes ahead to secure the nomination. A man with such a trailer-load of baggage that even a novitiate Democratic candidate would make a mince meat of his candidacy, is now occupying Republican Party's presidential nominee status and may for the sake of discussion, magically win? This accident of winning possibility is what is principally driving Newt Gingrich despite the obvious fact that his chances of being elected president of the United States in a national election is nearly second to zero. Also it would appear that Newt Gingrich developed amnesia and have simply chosen to forget his ethical violations, marital infidelities as well as complicity in the lobbying industry; foibles which do not bode well for the electorates. Anyway Icheoku dares the Republican Party to hand President Obama a swift victory in 2012 by nominating Newt Gingrich as their presidential candidate.
Buoyed by his current front runner status, Newt has gone into overdrive, declaring that he is going to be the nominee and Icheoku wonders what a too full of himself, very arrogant man, this overweight Georgia man is. In his own words, Newt Gingrich said, “I’m going to be the nominee. It’s very hard not to look at the recent polls and think that the odds are very high I’m going to be the nominee. And by the way I don’t object if people want to attack me, that’s their right. All I’m suggesting that it’s not going to be very effective and that people are going to get sick of it very fast. And the guys who attacked each other in the debates up to now, every single one of them have lost ground by attacking. So they should do what they and their consultants want to do. I will focus on being substantive and I will focus on Barack Obama.”
Icheoku however beg to advise Newt Gingrich not to savor his polling victory just yet as we have seen so many other candidates occupy that front runner seat before his current ascendancy and where are they now? What a funny phony this man is; except of course, he is trying to psyche Mitt Romney out the competition, being the newest man on the block in the nomination process. Icheoku once again admonishes that the Republican Party does not have an electable presidential material this nomination season and would by default of any of these candidates nomination, hand President Barack Obama a second term. If only they have listened to the advise of Bush's brain, Karl Rove, and stayed off the tracks; but hey, their respective ego is more than ordinary hence the jostling. Oh Newt, how do you plan to secure the nomination and how are you so sure that you will be the Republican Party's presidential nominee?
