ROSCOE’S Mid-Weak Review

OK. We really mean it this time. We’re back. The secret mission led to a crash project, which precluded any posting the last few days. We could tell you what it was all about, but we’d have to hunt you all down and—you know…

Anyway, in case you were wondering (or care), our goal is to post daily or darned close to it.

This could really change things

Are you in the same political boat as we are, with no good, electable, conservative Republican on the presidential horizon? Rudy’s too liberal. Romney’s too flip-floppy on life. Gingrich is too radioactive in his personal life. And McCain is too … well, McCainish (who’s made it real clear what he thinks of evangelicals).

But, wait. One of those scenarios could be about to change. Newt Gingrich, it seems, is reportedly trying to reinvent himself as a repentant sinner:

Gingrich Tells Dobson He’s ‘Sought God’s Forgiveness’

Former House speaker admits moral failings, discusses threat of radical Islam

Former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich tells Dr. James C. Dobson he has “gotten on my knees and sought God’s forgiveness” for his personal moral failings in a two-part installment of Dobson’s international radio program airing Thursday and Friday. has the story.

Should we believe him? Your guess is as good as mine. People who want to be president will say a lot of things. We’ll just have to listen well, weigh his words and look for his heart. How much ownership a person takes for his actions (versus deflection, excuses and rationalization) is usually the giveaway.

If he’s for real, this would easily move Newt to the top of our list. He’s definitely smart enough to be president, understands the times and the issues and has staked out the correct position on all of them, as far as we can tell. That’s saying a lot.

Yes, he does have high unfavorables among the electorate, but then so does Hillary. Does anyone really doubt she’s going to be the Dhimmicrat nominee? At this point, it’s hers to lose. Obama is just a temporary distraction, a darling of the mainstream mediocracy. It’s going to be Hillary versus Giuliani or—maybe, just maybe—Newt Gingrich.

It would be worth it for the aggravation factor to liberals, if nothing else. We can just about see the exploding heads already. Tee-hee.
