Until tonight, I was undecided but leaning toward Newt Gingrich's corner. Now, I just cannot do it. I am embarrassed that the party cannot come up with a single viable presidential candidate. Tonight's SC debate was painful to watch.
Newt's indignation regarding questions about his ex-wife and mistess/wife were obscene. Even more offensive was his earlier pledge that on his first day as president he would force a constitutional showdown regarding supreme court rulings that HE considers "legally flawed". He said the presidency is above the supreme court and the president can declare certain rulings "null and void". These include rulings on legal rights of terrorism suspects and Roe vs Wade. Emperor Newt tonight wore no clothes, and I cannot vote for such a man.
So, what are the alternatives? Is there a Republican out there, maybe someone as yet undeclared, who can do the job? Aside from Stephen Colbert, of course. Seriously, who is a viable option against Obama?
