  •  What motivates the tea baggers? (0+ / 0-)

    Their motives are as mixed as anyone else's, but if they oppose the power of Washington insiders then they must oppose Newt since he is a perfect example of the Washington insider. He was caught in a corruptions scandal and moved seamlessly into Washington lobbying and influence-peddling, enriching himself in the process.  They might choose Ron Paul or better, Buddy Roehmer.

    If they want to see a return to traditional Christian values then they will support Santorum; the family man who is totally committed to traditional Christian values.  They would reject Newt, whose every choice in life shows cynical, vicious amorality.

    If, on the other hand, they hate seeing a black man in the White House then they will support Newt, who has shown himself as the candidate most willing go to the gutter and appeal to racial prejudice.

    And lo and behold, the good conservative of South Carolina vote overwhelmingly for Gingrich.
