Chuck Norris has made his case for why Newt Gingrich should be President.

No man or candidate is perfect. We all have skeletons in our closet. If buried bones became unforgivable bones of contention, the world would never know or will never know another Benjamin Franklin, King David and others like them. We must remember that we’re electing a president, not a pastor or pope. And with the mainstream media and a billion-dollar Obama campaign coffer on the president’s side, we need a veteran of political war who has already fought Goliath, because he will be facing Goliath’s bigger brother.

In the last few editions of my weekly column, I detailed “10 questions to find our next president” in no particular order of importance. I proposed that the name of the candidate that fills the majority of the answers deserved readers’ vote.

  1. Who is most committed to follow and lead by the U.S. Constitution?
  2. Who has the greatest leadership ability to rally, unify and mobilize citizens across political and societal spectrums?
  3. Who has the best working comprehension of America?
  4. Who has the best ability to influence a volatile world away from its brink of destruction?
  5. Who has clear and present moral fortitude?
  6. Who can best beat President Barack Obama (in and outside of debates)?
  7. Who has the best abilities to lead Washington politics and politicians?
  8. Who has the best plan and leadership ability to restore America’s economy?
  9. Who is the most fiscally prudent?
  10. Who has demonstrated the highest regard for human life?

For my wife, Gena, and I, we sincerely believe former Speaker Newt Gingrich is the answer to most of those questions and deserves our endorsement and vote.

Chuck conveys in his endorsement feelings that many conservatives have.

I’m tired of watching our country being torn to shreds by those who think the answer is more government debt and control. I’m tired of being in bondage to a tax system that robs U.S. citizens like the king of England did before the Revolution. I’m tired of watching our sovereignty being sold by foreign loans and loose borders. And I will not sit back and merely watch this decay and degradation of the U.S. and then hand it over to my children and grandchildren to deal with.

He also makes a great point:

President Obama has tried and failed miserably to fix our economy, deepening us and our posterity into more than $6 trillion in additional national debt – something he criticized former President Bush for as “unpatriotic” and “irresponsible.” Yet unemployment rates remain at higher levels than when Obama was elected, and the dollar is as unstable as the Middle East.

As important as it is, now is not the time to be mincing through minutiae and infighting via typical partisan battles. Rome is burning, and we need to appoint the best firemen possible to rush in and put out her fury. What’s critical at this point is to appoint a commander in chief who can clearly lead America to a more solvent and secure future.

Senator DeMint Not Endorsing In Primary

From Senate Conservatives Fund, a PAC chaired by Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC):

“I’m going to work on Senate races and let South Carolina decide for itself who they want to nominate,” DeMint said. “I want to help deliver a conservative Senate, otherwise it doesn’t matter who is in the White House.”

Interesting decision by the Senator, considering his voice carries a great deal of weight among Conservatives.  But he does make a great point in that without a conservative Senate it really doesn’t matter.  The GOP having control of the House the last two years shows that.

Press-Gazette endorsement in the 8th Congressional

And the endorsement goes to Republican Reid Ribble.

When De Pere businessman Reid Ribble won the Republican nomination for the 8th Congressional District, we said first-time candidates would have to demonstrate qualifications beyond their anti-establishment backgrounds in November.We think Ribble has a plan in line with the conservative policies we support, and that is why we are endorsing him as the candidate to replace U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen, D-Appleton.

Equally important is that we believe Ribble is the right person at the right time to represent the views of Northeastern Wisconsin as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Americans are clearly unhappy with the way our government has handled the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, and with the months spent on a massive national health care overhaul. Ribble has been critical of the stimulus package and health care reform and has offered some alternatives worth considering. Although he said he would support a repeal of the health care law, he said he would concentrate instead on making health care more affordable through a series of legislative proposals.

We think Ribble would approach the major challenges facing our nation with a set of fresh eyes, which is exactly what we need to find solutions to jump-start the economy and create the kind of environment where businesses have incentives to grow jobs. Our system is set up so that the House is the chamber with shorter term lengths to allow more voices to be heard, and it is time again for a new perspective.

So why not endorse Congressman Kagen for a third term?

Kagen has served our region for two terms, yet there are no significant pieces of legislation or contributions that stand out to convince us he deserves a third term. He certainly has the enthusiasm and strong work ethic to try to make a difference for residents in the 8th District, and he has stood up for paper mills and spoken out against companies in China that have undercut this important industry.

Kagen also has kept in frequent touch with his constituents and has been visible in his home district, which is what we expect from our lawmakers.

At times we have been troubled, however, by Kagen’s evasiveness when we have asked him direct questions about his stand on the issues and, instead, has offered rhetoric and campaign talking points. He also has been unyielding in his support of the health care reform bill. His my-way-or-the-highway approach is not what the country — or the voters — need now. Our district has never voted a Democrat to the House in three consecutive elections, and now is not the time to break with that tradition.

The local paper could have also pointed out how things have gotten worse economically during Congressman Kagen’s two terms.  Also could have pointed out how he stands behind ads that are false and misleading when it comes to Reid Ribble’s positions on the issues.

Interesting that the endorsement is coming out when there is still two weeks until the election.  What do you think of the endorsement?
