Newt Gingrich continues to drop hints that he’s considering a run for the 2012 GOP nomination. The latest comes from an October 25 appearance on C-SPAN:
When asked what factors would help him decide one way or the other, this is how he replied:
"Callista [his wife] and I are going to think about this in February 2011. And we are going to reach out to all of our friends around the country. And we'll decide, if there's a requirement as citizens that we run, I suspect we probably will. And if there's not a requirement, if other people have filled the vacuum, I suspect we won't."
Mr. G, you’ve alienated so many of your conservative admirers through your bizarre choices in recent years (such as when you swallowed whole the premises of the global warmists, or when you wholeheartedly endorsed a Republican candidate who is more liberal than many Democrats in the district she seeks to represent). Whatever you mean by the bizarre phrase “requirement as citizens that we run”, you can’t possibly be anticipating the acclamation of conservatives.
Get a clue, Newt. The reason you’re getting so much media time now is that the left sees you as a means of fomenting disunity on the right.
Please. Ignore the voices in your head, and focus on the reality of your situation. This isn’t about you.
