This is a Revolution, not a Revolving Door

Excerpted from “Newt Ramps up Rhetoric”. This is what it takes to win a revolution:
Newt Gingrich lashed out at Mitt Romney in Mount Dora Thursday, saying the former Massachusetts governor is guilty of lies, desperation and hypocrisy that should make “every American angry.”
“I am running for president to represent you, not to represent the Washington lobbyists, not to represent Goldman Sachs, not to represent the people who have been ruining this country,” Gingrich said. “And I need your help.”
Accompanied by his wife Callista, the North Lake Tea Party-endorsed candidate received cheers as he vowed to shake up the Washington establishment.
“Remember, the Republican establishment is just as much as the Democratic establishment, and they are just as determined to stop us,” Gingrich said.
“We were drowned in a sea of mud in Iowa,” he said. “Mud paid for with special-interests money, money paid for by lobbyists in Washington and a candidate who was willing to say anything and do anything because he is so desperate to be president that he doesn’t think that the truth matters.
“But, I’m here as a citizen. I frankly don’t care what the Washington establishment thinks of me, because I intend to change them.”
“He [Romney] owns a Goldman Sachs subsidiary, which is foreclosing on Floridians,” Gingrich said.
“Michael Reagan has endorsed me,” Gingrich said of the son of President Ronald Reagan. “In 1995, at the Goldwater Institute, Nancy Reagan said that Ronald Reagan’s torch had been passed to me as speaker of the House and that I was carrying the values he believed in.”
“During that entire period, Mitt Romney was a money-making Independent,” Gingrich said. “He had no interest in politics; he wasn’t involved in helping save the country.”
He added that in 1992, Romney gave money to the Democrats running for Congress, and voted in the Democratic presidential primary for Paul Tsongas, “the most liberal candidate.”
“This is a man (Romney) who questions my credentials as a Reagan aide?” Gingrich said. “This is the kind of gall they have to think we’re so stupid and we’re so timid? That we’ll let somebody who voted for Paul Tsongas. In 1994, (Tsongas) was running to the U.S. Senate to the left of Teddy Kennedy. Do you know how hard it is to run to the left of Teddy Kennedy?”
“I don’t think Gov. Romney could last in a debate with Barack Obama,” Gingrich said. “We need a solid conservative who can stand there and look straight in the eyes of the president and say ‘Mr. President, you are wrong and your policies are fake.”
Several in audience responded by chanting in unison: “Taxed enough already.”  “I promise you,” Gingrich added, “I am going to fight every day to the end until we win this nomination.”

We need a candidate who is truly hated by the Establishment Elite on the left and the right. Only that kind of fire in the belly can burn out the incestuous Washington establishment on both sides of the aisle. Sarah Palin was and is that hated. Herman Cain was hated as much as they dared hate a black man.

Newt is clearly hated, but he has the strength to stand up to it. He has already been to heck and back in Washington so he does not fear them. He knows the enemy by personal name. He knows what they are. He does not need their approval. He needs their destruction. So do we.
