Second Look at Newt Gingrich (Number Three with a Bullet)

‎”Sometimes, Newt’s giant supercomputer brain kicks into high gear and…bodies all over the floor.” – THE Rick Wilson

Let’s get it all out of the way. I realize he’s on wife #3 and that the Democrats moved all the gold out of Fort Knox to house all the opposition research they have on him. He sometimes sticks hit foot in his mouth, I disagree with him on some social issues, and he lost points with me at the beginning of the camapaign when he threw Paul Ryan under the bus.

That said, a funny thing happened on the way to the Iowa Caucuses. Newt Gingrich, threw nothing but his debate performances, went from low single digits to #3 in the polls, and within striking distance of being the new not-Romney in the race.

He’s clearly the most intellegent one the stage, which granted may not be saying much seeing who else his running, but he is still brilliant. He can throw red meat and go after his opponents, and back it up with ideas. And he will absolutely enililate President Obama in the debates.

And that’s why I think he could be more competitive then all the early polls say. He went from being an after thought to being #3 among conservatives on the strength of the debates. Why can’t he do the same with independent voters in a general election by out debating Obama?

I mean this in all seriousness. Out of all the not-Romney’s in the race, I think it’s time to take a serious look at Newt Gingrich.
