Move over Sarah Palin, Newt is "serious."
Newt Gingrich said he is considering a run for president in 2012 and will make his final decision early next year.
"I've never been this serious," Gingrich told the AP.
The former House speaker said he will be helping fellow Republicans get reelected in the midterms, but will decide in February or March whether to seek the nomination.
Credited with the Republican takeover of the House during Bill Clintons presidency in 1994, Gingrich even fronted the movement to impeach the President during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

OK, now we know who the chosen GOP spoiler is. The media will taut his brilliance, etc.
Hey Newt, will Libbie Dede be campaining for you - she owes you.
And what’s your banner - your words from last year?
THE REAGAN ERA IS OVER
I would vote for Palin in a heartbeat, after all I voted for her in the last election.
I’ll take Palin over just about anyone this side of Zombie Reagan.
newt won’t be on the radar even if he does manage to gank the nomination.
I love Sarah and think she would make a great President. Sometimes, though, I wish she’d stop talking about two sentences before she does. Like when she just used the word “refutiate” on Hannity.
There’s “refute” and “repudiate”, but I’ve never heard “refutiate”.
Is the threat of Newt running for President as serious as the threat posed by Global Warming?
They dress the same, they think the same....
I think that picture will just about put this notion to rest.
Newt, yer time’s up.
That’s the funniest thing I’ve heard all day!
Newt is done. I’ll take Sarah any day over most Republicans in DC these days.
This must be for the amusement of the media empire. They only wish they had either of them 2 to kick around.
I thought ‘newt’ was the little girl in Alien II.
Newt? No thanks.
The kind of conservative we need to run would be setting that sofa aflame, not sitting on it.
Yeah, I guess those teleprompters need to have SpellCheck, like for the words “ummmmm”, “uhhhhh”, and “corpseman”
Newt needs to take his smug little self to the back room and work on strategy and speech writing. He’s over.
Newt certainly has bad baggage but he will add to the discussion in a positive manner. Let ‘em all run, we will sort them out. That’s America.
Consider yourself flamed.
Newt is damaged goods. His conduct while his wife was in the hospital was contemptible.
Democrats can get away with that crap because they are sleazy and no one expects anything else from them. Conservatives are expected to maintain a higher standard.
There is a role for Newt, but not as President.
