The Republican Party have two options to go up against President Obama: Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney. When the Republican voters go out to the polls at the beginning of the year the majority of them will vote for a person who has a background that these voters blasted years ago.
For instance: A decade ago some Republican voter probably said, “I can’t believe that ole’ Clinton had a daggum affair while in the White House. He has ruined our image and I could never vote for someone who cheated on his wife and lied to God by breaking a vow.” Well, this same person could very well vote for Newt Gingrich who has had three wives, breaking two vows to God. Uh oh!
Remember back in 2008 when all these Christian die hards said they would “never vote for a non-Christian?” They went around to Hardee’s and started to talk about how we were about to elect a Muslim (which turns out they were wrong). Yet, for decades these Christian voters have said that the Mormons are “non-Christians.” Alright. I’m not going to get into specifics on religion and I’m not going to bash the Church of Latter Day Saints. However, if these people didn’t vote for Mitt Romney in 2008 because of his religion…. will they vote for a “non-Christian” in 2012? It looks that way.
So lets recap for just a moment: the Republican voters didn’t want someone who cheated on his wife and they didn’t want someone who wasn’t a under the Christian label. Then they got Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. Looks like those talking points were thrown out the window and forgotten about.
Once the primaries start coming around we will see one of these men win the Republican nomination. Both will defy the early remarks of their voters. Even with moral issues aside, these two men still have an economic record that would benefit the most wealthy and leave the middle class behind. The same ‘average Joe’ who will vote for either Newt or Mitt are the same people who will hurt the most under a Newt or Mitt presidency. Why? Newt Gingrich’s tax policy would overwelmingly benefit the rich while leaving the middle class in the dust and Mitt Romney…. well…. who wants a guy in the White House who’s state ranked at the bottom of job creation while he was governor and who fired thousands of workers while working at Bain to fill his own pockets? Surely not the Republican voters, but they will vote for him anyway.
So, after all this information about their background and records why is it that Republican voters still support them? 2012 will truly be the year of Republican hypocrisy. Hey! I have someone they can vote for!! This guy has never cheated on his wife and is a known Christian that goes to church AND his policies help the middle class! His name? Barack Obama.
