Re "Gingrich says he'll back rival," May 3

What a terrible disappointment that Newt Gingrich will not be president. I had banked on the $2.50-a-gallon gasoline that he promised, the colonization of the moon and federal judges being seized by marshals and stripped of their positions when they rendered decisions that were unpopular with the president and his minions.

Maybe if candidate Gingrich had promised $1-a-gallon gasoline, the Republican primary election would have had a different result.

How you shall be missed, Mr. Speaker, particularly by comedians.

Now that Gingrich has stepped aside, there is the courting period during which presumptive nominee Mitt Romney will try to win him over. Perhaps Romney will promise Gingrich a job in his Cabinet or at a foreign embassy.

But Gingrich has already contributed much anti-Romney footage for President Obama's reelection campaign. So it might be very difficult for the two of them to ever see eye to eye on anything. In fact, how can such former adversaries as Rick Santorum and Rick Perry ever say anything nice about Romney after their exchanges in the debates?

As I see it, in November the only sides at the polls will be pro-Obama and anti-Obama.
