When asked if he plans to make another run for the presidency, Newt Gingrich told The Naple News, “I have no idea at this stage.” And he shouldn’t — or anyone else for that matter — since we’ve only recently wrapped up a two-year presidential election. Unfortunately, it seems increasingly clear that some folks want to speculate on who will become the 45th president even when the 44th hasn’t even been sworn in to his second term yet. To that end, if I’m going to play along, I have one bit of advice for Nasty Newt as it relates to any future run at the White House: Let’s not and say you did.
Funny enough, Newt claimed that before he makes any decision about the 2016 presidential race, Republicans must tackle a “serious analysis” of what went wrong in 2012, “Republicans have to stop and take a deep breath,” Gingrich explained. Yes, breathe in, breathe out and start thinking about where all you went wrong — but start with yourself.
As Gingrich switches from declarations that “I am not for amnesty for anyone. I am not for a path to citizenship for anybody who got here illegally” to calls for a “practical solution” in light of Latino voters overwhelmingly choosing President Obama over Mitt Romney, there remains some other issues he must contend with.
Let’s start with his racism.
He’s called Spanish the “language of living in the ghetto.”
And of course, there’s that “foreigner” characterization of Obama that he constantly engages in.
You have to wonder what he’s doing,” Gingrich continued. I’m assuming that there’s some rhythm to Barack Obama that the rest of us don’t understand. Whether he needs large amounts of rest, whether he needs to go play basketball for a while or watch ESPN, I mean, I don’t quite know what his rhythm is, but this is a guy that is a brilliant performer as an orator, who may very well get reelected at the present date, and who, frankly, he happens to be a partial, part-time president.
We are going to have the candidate of food stamps, the finest food stamp President in American history, in Barack Obama, and we are going to have a candidate of paychecks.
What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]? That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.
And one can’t forget what he makes of Blacks:
