What Lincoln Said Of Grant Applies To Gingrich Today "He Fights"
As is the same today as in Lincoln's day, the jealous, the pygmy's the backbiters and the ruthless opponents attack the fighter with all sorts rude and crude charges. "He's an adulterer, he's a hothead, he has too much baggage." When a counter attack comes they curl up in a ball and cry "unfair-this proves he's a hothead"
The rank and file wanted a fighter. When they saw Gingrich's performances in the debates he rocketed up in the polls. When the Romney Super PAC and the minnows relentlessly attacked Newt in Iowa for being a fighter his poll numbers dropped. Now in South Carolina he again is showing the fighting spirit that will be needed for the general election campaign against a ruthless enemy, and again, the naysayer's are so blinded by "electability" that they are attacking the very candidate they were so enthused about originally for his fighting qualities.
Lincoln had the wisdom and foresight to see beyond the midgets of his day and totally backed his fighter, Ulysses S. Grant and in the end both were winners. The conservative vote is being split once again, this time in South Carolina and the real fighter, Gingrich is being dragged down by short sightedness and self-interest.
"I cannot spare this man! He fights" was Lincoln's reply-it should be every conservatives reply in South Carolina otherwise we will be foisted with another McClellan.
"Abraham Lincoln took notice of this man in the west, a man who fought, and when those jealous of Grant's success and recognition tried to curb his advancement, claiming Grant had been drinking, and calling for his removal from command (vicious rumours mostly fuelled by Grant's rivals), President Lincoln flatly stated, "I cannot spare this man! He fights!".
