DES MOINES, Iowa--In a rare personal moment on the campaign trail for Newt Gingrich, the former House Speaker and Republican presidential candidate broke down when asked to speak about his mother, Kathleen Gingrich.
At a town hall meeting at a coffee shop here, Gingrich reflected on the role his mother played in his life, and spoke about her struggles with bipolar disorder and depression. She died in 2003.
"I'm better at talking policy than personal," he said, wiping tears from his eyes.
Sure Newt has made some mistakes in his past, but who hasn't? No one is perfect. And every single candidate who is plugging for the presidency has just as much if not more past baggage.
But as far as Newt's qualifications to be president, trust me he has them. He's an extremely intelligent man and he understands what our founding fathers wanted for this nation.
We here at TWAU BLOG went from endorsing Herman Cain (who dropped out of the race) to now endorsing whoever Obama's opponent ends up being. Because we believe this 2012 election must be an anybody but Obama vote.
If you love this nation, and want it to live on. You must vote for who ever Obama's opponent is, no matter who it is. Obama must be removed from office. Or we quiver to think how it all will end in America.
