Michael Savage has made his feelings for Newt Gingrich clear. Crystal clear.
Today, the often controversial conservative radio talk show host who prides himself on his unapologetic, tell-it-as-he-sees-it style offered the current front runner for the Republican ticket a sum of one million dollars. All Gingrich has to do to collect on the offer is drop out of the race for president.
The challenge, which was posted on Savage’s official website, stated in no uncertain terms why Michael Savage feels that Gingrich would be the wrong choice for America.
Calling Gingrich “unelectable,” Savage cited many of Gingrich’s flaws, which Savage feels would make it impossible for Gingrich to beat Obama on election day, despite Obama’s current lack of popularity with would-be voters.
According to Savage, some of Gingrich’s biggest political sins include making ads with Nancy Pelosi, designed to promote the “myth of global warming,” Gingrich’s failure to deliver on his supposed “Contract with America” during his term as Speaker of the House, Gingrich’s statements that he is in favor of amnesty for illegal immigrants and Gingrich’s reference to Republican plans to reform Medicare as “right wing social engineering.”
Savage also commented on Gingrich’s well known incidences of infidelity and pointed out that Gingrich has profited financially from organizations such as Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, which Savage referred to as “two of the most corrupt financial institutions in history.”
Never one to shy away from his own brand of brutal honesty, Savage stated that no matter how well Gingrich would do in a one-on-one debate against Barack Obama, Gingrich would come off looking like nothing more that a “fat, old white man.”
In addition to his criticism of Gingrich, Savage declared who he feels to be the Republican party’s best bet in making Obama a one-term president — Mitt Romney. “Mitt Romney is the only candidate with a chance of defeating Barack Obama, and there is nothing more important than that for the future health, safety and security of the United States of America.”
So far, there has been no word from Gingrich on plans to accept Savage’s offer, although Savage has issued a 72-hour deadline as he awaits Gingrich’s response.
“His continued candidacy spells nothing but ruin for conservatives, Republicans and all true American patriots,” said Savage. “One million dollars in exchange for preserving the nation, Newt. I say take the money … and don’t run.”
