Newt Gingrich soared in the polls after South Carolina, heading into the Florida Primaries. Arguably, Florida is the most important of the early states since it represents a better cross section of the country’s diverse electorate. But, predictably, Newt began to lose steam the minute he set foot on the sandy soil of the Sunshine State.

Was it the barrage of negative advertisements run by Romney and the Super PAC associated with his campaign? A full 92% of the advertisements run prior to the voting day were considered negative ads. I’m sure it had an effect. But, it was NOT the reason that Newt failed.
Newt failed because he is the master of hare brained ideas, none more so than the one he proposed on Florida’s Space Coast as he pandered to voters in the economically devastated area. The Space Coast is in trouble. Since the announcement of the suspension of the Space Shuttle program, thousands of jobs have been lost and many businesses have shut down or moved. It’s the result of poor planning on the part of NASA and the increased attention being paid to Space by other countries and the private sector.
Newt pronounced that by the end of his second term, he would like to see work towards a manned colony on the moon. This comes after ideas like mirrors in Space to light up the Earth, and Lasers to defeat the bad guys in North Korea etc.. Newt is full of ideas, you have to give him that. But, his ideas tend to border on the wacky side of town. Even if they were plausible, they’re not feasible. And, that is the problem with Newt and also with Romney. While Romney comes across as more stable and even keeled, he is still a spender, just like Newt. Both are proposing huge spending measures and not huge deficit cutting measures. It’s just that Romney isn’t accompanied by his own personal circus that is bound and determined to bring him down at critical junctures in the race.
The answer of course is to send Newt to the moon and elect Ron Paul. But, that’s not going to happen either. I’ve exhausted the reasons why Ron Paul will not be the nominee in previous issues. And, while I know that’s an unpopular position amongst this readership, it’s reality. He is dead last in delegate counts and his decision to avoid Florida entirely does not make him a political standout for November. Now, if we could morph Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and add a dose of crazy man together, we might have something going. It’s only Dr. Paul who would actually have the guts to tackle our bigger issues and truly cut spending. The problem is that he needs to have an anti-Paul working with him.
The Republican Nominee needs 1144 delegates to win nomination. Right now, Romney has 71. It’s very, very early. It’s clear that the Republican establishment is behind Mitt, but it’s far from clear that the voters look at him as their choice and not just their only option in November. After the Florida election a poll was cast and the results showed that almost 40% of voters polled wished there was another candidate running…one yet to be named. In a game of confidence, it’s the one thing that is severely lacking in the Republican Party today.
