President of what? The Society of Douchebag Hypocrites? No, silly rabbit, he’s considering a run for President of the United States!
The mind boggles and one wonders if Newt’s quasi-announcement is a good or bad thing for the Republican party. Because this is a guy who’s been out of power for more than a decade, which is a lifetime in politics. The last person to run for President after being out of the spotlight forever was Nixon, and we all know what a successful presidency that was.
Let’s see how Newt is trotting out this I-haven’t-made-up-my-mind news, via CNN’s Political Ticker:
I think I’m probably on a list of seven or eight possible candidates at this stage,” Gingrich reportedly told reporters in North Carolina Wednesday before speaking to a gathering of conservatives. Joe DeSantis, Gingrich’s communications director, confirmed the accuracy of the quotes to CNN.
“We have a lot of people around the country who would like to have somebody who represents a commitment to replace the current failed programs and to develop a set of solutions that are practical and workable,” Gingrich also said.
Hmm…how many Americans want a President of the United States who once shut down the federal gonverment because he didn’t like where President Clinton had him sit on Air Force One, which cost U.S. taxpayers at least $600 million?
Anyway. Back to Newt.
Gingrich said he would make a decision about his own political future next year after discussing the prospect of a presidential bid with his wife.
Funny that he decides to announce that he may run for President before he seriously discusses it with his wife. You know, his third wife! The one he was fucking while he was married to his second wife! The one with whom he was having an affair while he was trying to nail Clinton (pun) for the Lewinsky affair! And just in case you didn’t know, Newt divorced his FIRST wife as she was dying from cancer.
Oh, and are Catholics even supposed to divorce? Someone remind us.
Family values, right? We’re pretty sure Newt has long since abandoned his Contract with America.
