A Pro at Work

 

My favorite speech last night was by Newt Gingrich.  I have never seen Gingrich give a bad speech and he was at the top of his game last night.  Note how he deftly attempted at the beginning of his speech to turn the non-endorsement of Cruz into an implicit endorsement of Trump by Cruz.  He then went on to make a devastating speech against Hillary Clinton. The smartest man in American politics, it is a tragedy for the nation that his inability to not engage in tawdry infidelities earlier in his life cut short his political career after he had masterminded the Republican winning of the House for the first time in almost a half century.  If Trump wins in the fall, and I abide by my prediction that he will, I hope that Gingrich is his chief of staff.

  1. it is too bad if his earlier infidelities are still holding him back in the public mind- he has repented and moved on and become I think a good Catholic- we heard him speak about John Paul a few years ago and we hope that some one with his scope of experience and insight can be in a position to lead.

    Sometimes we read about the influence of “Catholic thinking” on W. Civ. and on the founding of America… could that happen again? Well, we certainly have Catholic politicians today! – some not very well formed like Cuomo, Biden, O’Malley, Pelosi etc; but on the right , Gingrich, Rubio, Rick Santorum, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, Jeb Bush etc. If good Catholic sense could prevail (as Ganswein and some bishops, even US bishops) are trying to present) there still is hope for us… here and around the world.

  2. I would take Gingrich over Hillary ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!!! Of course, I would take my dog over Hillary. (With no negative reflection on Gingrich–the negative reflection is all on Killary –mispelled on purpose.)

  3. Agreed, superb speech by Gingrich. After he turned Cruz’ “vote your conscience” into a positive “vote for Trump”, the son and father Trump should have kept mum on Cruz.

    I wouldn’t vote for Gingrich for president in the presidential primary given his marital history, but as .Anzlyne commented he and Calixta have repented. Having heard him speak at a luncheon I truly believe that. Isn’t repentance and redemption Christ’s message? Hopefully Trump will choose him as his Chief of Staff. With Pence as VP and Gingrich as a close adviser I think a Trump presidency has a chance for success. Success to mean saving our country. Certainly Pence and Gingrich are both ardent pro-lifers and Catholics. ( That said Pence is listed as an Evangelical Catholic, though after reading the definition online, there is still some confusion in my mind.)
    We know Hillary who is. Anybody but Hillary! To paraphrase Edwin Edwards, “Don’t vote for the Crook. This election is too important.” We need Constitutionalist supreme court judges.
