Tonight has the potential to be a huge night.
At 7 PM Eastern, former Republican Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich opens up his “Solutions Day” initiative with a speech at the Cobb Galleria neat Atlanta, GA. There is a full day of workshops being hosted at the University of West Georgia and all over the country on Saturday. Mike Huckabee will be leading one on Education from New Hampshire Saturday afternoon. There is also one being led by Libertarian talk show host, Neal Boortz and my Congressmen, John Linder (R-GA) on the Fair Tax. It all gets started at 7 PM tonight. You can watch it right there online Be sure to test your ability to watch ASAP so you don’t miss it. You can see it on DIRECTV 577 and DISH Network 219 as well.
Following that will be tonight’s debate from Baltimore, MD on PBS from 9-10:30 PM Eastern. Mike Huckabee will be there but yet again “Rudy McRomneyson” will be absent. It is appalling to me to see so many Republicans skipping out on this debate which is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to Minorities. The refusal of some is beyond me.
Anywho, I want you to pay attention to both of these events tonight. I will be front and center for both. Here you have two politicians with fresh ideas that are not just aimed at Conservatives or Republicans, but with the goal of (quoting Newt here if I may) creating a “Red, White ,and Blue” nation and creating real political change that would be beneficial for us all and for our Nation.
I have no idea if I will take a hit here for saying this but I think a Huckabee/Gingrich ticket would be a juggernaut that could not be stopped. I don’t care who head the ticket either. It really doesn’t matter. In many state polls both of these politicians poll the same despite the fact that Newt has not declared his candidacy at this point. If you add the poll numbers that Gingrich and Huckabee are getting you get a ticket that would be 2nd or 3rd depending on the state (and those numbers could only go up). I know there are some things in Newt’s past that are not very good to look at so I suggest Mike Huckabee head the ticket. It could be 1994 all over again. There is enough time between the primaries and the actual election this year (because everything is so bunched up together) that if the right ticket is created by the Republicans, with a platform that would unite the Moderates and independents with them the Senate and The House might be able to change hands in November. Yes it is a stretch but a possibility nonetheless.
Just think about it!
