Gingrich wins South Carolina primary
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – Newt Gingrich stormed to an upset win in the South Carolina primary Saturday night, dealing a sharp setback to Mitt Romney and scrambling the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
“Thank you, South Carolina!” Gingrich swiftly tweeted to his supporters. He appealed for a flood or donations for the next-up Jan. 31 primary. “Help me deliver the knockout punch in Florida. Join our Moneybomb and donate now,” he tweeted.
Already, Romney and a group that supports him were on the air in Florida with a significant ad campaign, more than $7 million combined to date. Romney had hoped that Florida would seal his nomination – if South Carolina didn’t first – but that strategy disappeared Saturday night.
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Texas Rep. Ron Paul trailed badly in the South Carolina voting.

Gingrich wins South Carolina primary
I detest Ron Paul. I detest Mitt Romney almost as much.
I had NO idea that Rick Santorum had been voted one of the most corrupt people in the Senate, but apparently, according to this link, he was: CREW Releases Second Annual Most Corrupt Members of Congress Report.
I have NO idea where the core politics of the above site lie, but this came from a friend on Facebook, and it made me aware of Santorum and gave me a different look into his ways:
I am trying to figure out how to explain to my grandchildren that the person that will be there next president and whom that the should respect and admire….that from the field that’s left….a serial cheater, a rich elitist that could care less about the middle class, a senator that was voted most corrupt 2 years in a row, someone that will legalize heroin and would give our enemies nukes that would destroy us … tell me how I explain that to them … please.
I can’t, and won’t argue with the “rich elitist” or the “someone that will legalize heroin and would give our enemies nukes that would destroy us” comments in any way.
Here’s the deal folks; we have 4 people that are running for President of the United States, Gingrich, Romney, Paul and Santorum. We have to pick one of them in hopes that they can get Barack Hussein Obama OUT of the White House.
I am basing these next few lines solely on the known facts regarding ALL of them and the link above that brands Santorum as *corrupt*.
We already have one corrupt SOB in the Oval Office. We don’t need another one.
We already have an elitist SOB in the Oval Office, and he is working very hard to become rich off of OUR sweat. We don’t need another one.
We already have an SOB in the Oval Office that would legalize heroin and give our enemies nukes to destroy us with. We don’t need another one.
That *serial cheater* thing from some 20 odd years ago, an admitted act, one that has been laid out there for all to see, and one that forgiveness has supposedly been begged for, it’s really not looking too terribly bad now is it?
Newt Gingrich has never tried to hide his transgressions and has, according to him, taken his sins before God and asked for His forgiveness. Is it fair to keep on blasting him for his acts in the past? Is that the *Christian Way* I hear SO many run on and on about?
Is this not one of those ‘let he who is without sin cast the first stone’ or ‘judge not lest ye be judged’ moments?
If some of you are as Christian as you claim to be, how is it YOUR place to judge this man in his prior actions? Actions that he took before God and begged forgiveness?
And before ANYONE dares to go there, YES, I DID blast Herman Cain for pretty much the same thing. The difference being; Cain ducked, dodged, avoided and outright LIED about his past actions. Acts that were fairly recent from all indications.
Newt Gingrich stood like a MAN, admitted his transgressions and accepted the blame, the shame and the consequences for what took place 20 years ago!
Is Newt Gingrich perfect? No, he isn’t, and neither is anyone reading this.
