Delusional Gingrich Newsletter Posits not only an Obama Win, but also a 3rd Term
An email message mistakenly sent to Newt Gingrich’s newsletter list serve Thursday morning told subscribers that President Obama would no doubt win in 2012 and that they should be more worried about Obama’s winning in 2016.
That’s right, despite the 22nd Amendment, which limits any one person to two presidential terms, the email that went out to Gingrich’s readers suggests President Obama would be running again in 2016, and possibly serve through 2020.
The email, titled “What’s really at stake this Tuesday …” came from Gingrich Marketplace - a newsletter coordinated by conservative news group Human Events.
“The truth is, the next election has already been decided. Obama is going to win. It’s nearly impossible to beat an incumbent president,” advertiser Porter Stansberry wrote in the email to Gingrich supporters. “What’s actually at stake right now is whether or not he will have a third-term.”
Conservative news group Human Events manages the Gingrich Marketplace emails, but Gingrich has a say over which advertisers can have their messages go out to the list. And according to Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond, Stansberry & Associates should have been on the blacklist.
