I’m 5 minutes into the Town Hall wondering how we ended up with Romney and Santorum.

We need Newt.

I hope Newt stays in Government and runs for Governor of Georgia. I think he would be good there and would win there most likely. Since he is no longer running for President that might be an opportunity to begin setting up a campaign there.

“I’m 5 minutes into the Town Hall wondering how we ended up with Romney and Santorum.”

Frankly, I don’t KNOW.
Gingrich is so obviously above them, that I cannot believe any conservative could vote for the other two.
Sometimes I think those voters must have been lobotomized ...

They say Newt only has 12% support in the polls. This is the problem with our country, only 12% of the people are thinking. The rest are uninformed and ignorant.

Yes, that was excellent.

At about the 25 minute mark, he had me laughing at his responses regarding Mr. Ricky Saintorum.

It is beyond me why any so called conservative is against this man. Newt is what our country needs right now.

** President Newt Gingrich-”Our beloved republic deserves nothing less.”

I ask that question every time I hear him speak : |

Problem is, the StateRunMedia does a very good job of simply not reporting his speeches, and Romney and Santorum wave off on the debates which effectively does the same thing. Add to that, the unfortunate reality that a lot of Americans today do not have the attention span to actually LISTEN to what the man is saying.

He seems to have matured into a very intelligent, quick witted, good natured man, and it saddens me greatly that it appears that the electorate still has not learned to research the candidates, or even listen to them, electing instead to go for the central casting types who tell them whatever they want to hear : |

May God guide our course.

Universal suffrage, we are doomed.

It's not like the Founders didn't warn us, they didn't put a right to vote in the Constitution for a REASON.

The Republic was mortally wounded in 1865, and drawn and quartered in 1920 with the passage of the 19th Amendment.

Whats going on now is just death rattle.

Marguerite, such an impressive man. He even did a study on algae and said it would cost between 140. a barrel to 800.00 a barrel and said that is ONE reason Obama supports the gas hikes. If gasoline soars HIGH enough it will make the alternative aka algae seem like a great idea.

I am convinced that American voters are not as aware of Newt's magnificent record as Speaker and his amazing ideas as a candidate for president. We will lose the opportunity to elect the greatest president since Reagan ...sad time for the USA.

The universal suffrage is the culprit.

I would attach the privilege (not a “right”) to vote to each person’s personal IQ. Under a low limit - say 95 - one cannot vote.

Naps is a strong advocate for his guy. I think he’s off base most times, but he seems decent.
