SC schools GOP: Newt is acceptable to tea partier conservatives

Our native state teaches the now Stone Mountain of Georgia-roosted gamecock a personal lesson: Newt is acceptable

Mike DeVine Law Gamecock is humbled.

That so many voters that have earned my respect for so many years have chosen to support Newt Gingrich over Mitt Romney convinces me that Mitt is not so much better than Newt, that a vote for the former Speaker is not acceptable. Newt is a worthy fighter… and the crow and humble pie ordered here, here and here… needed more sugar and salt, respectively, thank you very much.

I still plan to vote for Mitt on Super Tuesday, but I don’t dismiss the primary voters of my native home state lightly. If Newt can give up the vague Bain Capital attacks and show mature discipline over the next months, he can win my enthusiastic support for the nomination and, of course, in the general election.

Romney ought to have to prove himself worthy to bear the mantle of the Party of Lincoln and Reagan as much as Gingrich ought.

May the best man win, I will be open to the idea that we need a street fighter just now, and …much more later…

  1. At the end of the day, I will support whomever my fellow conservatives decide is the one to go toe to toe with Obama, do I wish the candidates remaining were perfect? yes I do but alas no man is perfect (not even Obama as the media continues to tell us).
