Mandate vs. Non-Mandate

You do not hear a report on the Republican Presidential Election today that does not include the words "presumptive nominee, Mitt Romney".  We will get into some details there as a sidebar, but mainly, this will discuss the messages of the remaining campaigns.  Make no mistake, you will NOT hear this side on the Mainstream Media... yet!

We have three men left in the campaign.  Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Ron Paul are still running.  Mitt lead a state, Newt was speaker of the House of Representatives, and Congressman Ron Paul leads the relovetion "movement".  To take the easy one first, there is not so much as a piece of legistation that Ron Paul can put his name on in 20 years.  He has been ineffectual as a congressman, and little more can be expected from a Paul Administration, should he be elected.  That is before we we consider Paul's ostrich foreign policy platform.  So we are down to two serious contenders.  

Romney has money, AND connections in the media.  While he has maintained an arms length from Bain Capital, he still has his "wealth" managed there.  Bain is a treasure trove of issues to fire up Americans with, and Romney was its leader.  But here is the big thing; Bain owns Clear Channel Radio, which syndicates Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and others.  The conservative base is influenced by those hosts!  You can hear the urge to speak positively of Newt as they avoid it like the plague.  BUT, Mitt only owns the conservative media!

Owning something is not as important as what you do with that something.  Romney goes from place to place, reading his teleprompter, and taking few questions.  He claims to be pro life, now. He loves Cars, and Lakes, and is (this election cycle) a proponent of the 2nd Amendment.  Romney's main strategy has been turn out  suppression.  Can you point to an issue that Romney championed in the last four years?

There is one!  Most can't really say he was a champion, but Obama referred to him, in 2009,  time and time again as THE republican that supported RobamneyCare.  Mitt never denied it!  Still today, he can not deny it!  Which brings up the mandate.  What kind of mandate will Romney have if elected?  When he champions an issue, how strong will he be?  

Moreover, Newt Gingrich is driving for a Mandate.  The whitehouse has started two efforts to combat Newt.  Their energy response to $2.50 Gas is falling flat.  Their "War On Women", a direct response to the First Amendment Religious Freedom Newt has been touting, is flailing.  Newt called them out on it when George Stephanopolus initiated it.  Primarily, Newt has stuck to the precepts of building a mandate, to the point of publishing it at http://www.newt.org/contract/.  

Mitt has been trippped up over the Religious Freedom issue in interviews on Fox.  Mitt's campaign has signalled an etch-a-sketch strategy once he is rid of these pesky idealists.  Romney's issue free candidacy will give up the "not a dimes worth of difference" argument that killed our base in 2008.  Mitt will not have a mandate, and will be hamstrung in special interest fights, if elected!

The next President will face forces that have been digging in over the last four years.  How much is changed directly relates to how well we recover, from the Fannie/Freddie debacle, as well as National Security and General American Health.  Newt has had to answer the question "When are you getting out?" ad nauseum.  Mitt will have to answer "So why are you running?" to the same extent from the liberal media.  Mitt WILL gaffe!  Romney will face the refrain, "you ran against a mandate, and won!"  The liberal media has spent their ammo on Newt.  Newt's mandate will stand after the election.

Newt said, "Money spent without purpose, in a campaign without an argument, is waste of Money!"  Newt has the arguments, and he is the master of them.  Speaker Gingrich is running to give YOU a choice! To preserve America, and to win the presidency, we must support Newt Gingrich for the GOP nomination, and for the Office of the President of these United States of America!
