Conservatives want and need a candidate who can enunciate, persuade, and encourage the implementation of conservative principles. That takes some experience. But we need a candidate who can implement conservative executive policy and legislative initiatives well. Mr. Cain says he always evaluates the problem and then surrounds himself with the right people to get the job done. Do we have time for his evaluating process? Will he really know the best people for the job? Or will he bring in other people with no Washington experience? We don't have time for another president who has to come down a learning curve or needs on-the-job training.
There is a candidate who can do these things. He can eloquently expound on conservative principles. And he has already been a participant in the conservative revolution of the '80s and was the leader of the conservative revolution in the '90s. We need someone who can lead another conservative revolution now. And that man is Newt Gingrich. Is Newt perfect? No. Has he made compromises in the past? When you are working with a Democrat president and Senate, some compromise is going to be necessary. Does anyone really think Newt would implement cap and trade? Not likely. Plus the climate science is radically different now. Newt has a lifetime ACU rating of 90. That is conservative.
