So in the battle for the nomination in the GOP Presidential field, it has come down to Newt vs. Mitt. We have been told recently of all the bad things that Newt has supposedly done, and we have been told that Newt is a RINO or worse, a democrat in disguise.
Matt Lewis writes a piece today that highlights a couple of things for me that I think are telling about Romney, who I don’t view as very conservative. It turns out that John Sonunu is doing much of Romney’s bidding lately, as Romney pretends to be above the fray.
Apparently Newt was not invited by Sonunu to a re-election meeting for President George H. W. Bush in 1990. The reason Newt was not invited; because he was a thorn in the President’s side and worked against the infamous “read my lips, no new taxes” budget deal. That’s a plus for Newt in my column.
As Lewis also notes, Sonunu also gets credit for hoisting Justice Souter upon us. This is another stike against Romney.
