Truth to tell, there are so many things to remember that it’s hard to remember them all. But the GOP primary voters who are considering plighting their troth to Gingrich didn’t live and breathe every moment of his time in the sun the way we did.
They know him mainly from Fox News. They know he got a Republican Congress elected, which they like the sound of. And they’ve watched him playing the debates like a piano and enjoyed themselves enormously in the process…
The problem is that there are still all those things to remember and that when you use glue and tape and paste all those things together to form an overall portrait of Gingrich, you’re looking at someone who is probably unelectable as president.
The question now is this: Will Mitt Romney be able to get Republican primary voters to see that portrait? Or will the task fall in the general election to President Obama — who will use the $750 million-plus he’s sure to raise and aim like thousands of heat-guided precision missiles at an undeniably easy target?
