    Newt nipped by zoo penguin, gets Band-Aid ReutersBy Bruce Olson | Reuters – 7 mins ago ST. LOUIS (Reuters) - Things have not been going all that well for Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich lately, even at one of his favorite places - the zoo. Newt was nipped on the finger by a penguin during a private tour of the famous St. Louis zoo on Friday before he spoke to the National Rifle Association convention, zoo officials confirmed on Monday. Gingrich, who is trailing in the Republican race for the White House and is under pressure to withdraw, passed unscathed...

    GREENSBORO, N.C. – The day after Newt Gingrich was bit by a penguin at a zoo, he acknowledged he is “the underdog” and said his campaign began renting their donor list because they needed money. --- “Compared to Barack Obama, Romney’s a conservative,” he said. “Let’s be clear: There are no liberals in the Republican party.”

    Newt Gingrich, former House Speaker and a major Washington figure for decades, has been pushed to the fringes of presidential campaign discourse. Although he’s still formally a candidate for the GOP’s 2012 nomination, he describes Mitt Romney as "far and away the most likely" GOP nominee – a fact made all-but-certain by Rick Santorum’s dropping out this week. Mr. Santorum had been Romney’s last remaining serious challenger. With $4.5 million in debt, the Gingrich campaign organization has been operating on a shoestring as his principal financial angel, billionaire casino owner Sheldon Adelson, began moving toward the Romney campaign. “It appears...
  • Romney still must woo conservatives even with Santorum gone

    UPI ^ | April 15, 2012 | NICOLE DEBEVEC
    The exit of Rick Santorum from the Republican presidential primary essentially clears the path Mitt Romney is traveling to become the party's nominee against U.S. President Obama in November but Romney still has to win the hearts of GOP voters as well as the party's nomination. Romney had 573 delegates per the Republican National Committee's count to Santorum's 202 delegates when the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania withdrew last week. But he has yet to stir a fire in the belly of the party's evangelical and conservative wings as he moves closer to the 1,144 delegates needed to claim the...
  • Gingrich = Substance, Romney = Fluff.Without Newt, next 4 months will be boring without ideas, plans

    Be honest, without Newt Gingrich and his conservative ideas and plans for the country on radio, TV, newspapers, rallies, etc., the political discouse goes back to being really boring and insulting. Basically, there will be no passionate plans and ideas coming from Romney. We will be left with a beauty contest between Obama and his liberal "gushers" and Romney and his wife Ann trying to play "Leave it to Beaver" in front of the American public. Without Newt, for the next 4 months, we Americans will have to endure the mainstream media and Fox News pushing the shallow aspects of...

    I've never seen anything close to the hatred of Mitt Romney than I see at FR. The hatred exceeds anything I've seen or heard from Debbie Wasserman Schultz, David Axelrod, David Plouffe or anybody else in the Obama Administration. Most of the people who can't stand Romney on our side say he'd still be much better than another 4 years of Barack Obama who will never have to face the voters again. You won't find that at FR.

    I think you are missing something here. Newt would bring the ever Lurking Calista with him and she was the cause of divorce # 2. He was rubbing it in everybody's face that an old coot like him could get somebody like her. No matter how God awful she looked. He was delusional to think he could get the evangelicals with that approach. Newt is the one that shot himself in the foot not Hume. Hume is just another excuse for Newt in a long line of excuse's.

    Newt Gingrich may not have much of a shot at becoming President, but he is refusing to go quietly. And while he is no longer talking about the colonising the Moon, he does have plans which cover the entire globe. The former House Speaker told the National Rifle Association today that gun ownership should be a right for everyone in the world, and called on the UN to adopt a treaty enforcing this.

    Newt Gingrich has proposed a UN treaty to foster the God-given inalienable right of humans to have the Right to Bear Arms, so dictators, thugs, rapists, etc. can no longer make people live in fear throughout the world. This is a HUGE proposal. Please let me know what TV networks are reporting on this major idea by a Presidential candidate. Is Fox News still talking about stay at home moms, GSA parties and Romney's family life? Seriously, let's watch for coverage of this Right to Bear Arms UN treaty proposed by Gingrich. Let's see which TV networks report on it!
  • Conservative Hypocrisy - Romney's candidacy could destroy Conservative movement

    One by one, conservatives have endorsed Romney over Santorum and now Gingrich. This has exposed a dangerous hypocrisy. Whereas liberals thrive on hypocrisy, conservatives thrive on principle and ideas. When today's conservatives ignore principle and ideas and continue to do small talk about stay at home moms and GSA convention waste, instead of talking about Gingrich's big ideas of American Energy Independence and how to get there, they risk losing to the incumbent, Obama.

    Just when everyone was settling down for another month (at least) of borderline primary season tedium, it happened. Rick Santorum announced that, after one of the most surprisingly successful primary campaigns in recent memory, he was suspending his run for the Republican nomination to be President of the United States. What was behind this sudden about turn from the conservative who was closest to pushing Mitt Romney for victory? Well it has to be said that the decision seems largely to have been made on personal grounds. With his three year old daughter, Bella, having been hospitalised last week, noted...

    This year's GOP Presidential Primary and General Election have exposed a serious and dangerous demographic among the voting public, the media pundits, party leaders and graduating students. There appears to be a strong inability and unwillingness to openly and objectively discuss, debate and consider political policy ideas for improvemnet and reform of the government. The 2 most obvious pieces of evidence are the voting public and media's shallow coverage of the Energy, Social Security Big Ideas of a smart candidate like Newt Gingrich in favor of heavy coverage of stay-at-home mom coverage, shallow Romney business background bragging point, etc. The...

    The Republican presidential primary has been pronounced over, but against the odds, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich remains in the race. Even more improbably, the former speaker is still getting a slow trickle of endorsements from politicians who seem to genuinely believe he has a shot at the White House. The Daily Caller caught up with the latest politician to endorse Gingrich, Delaware State Senator Dave Lawson, whose endorsement was announced on Wednesday after Rick Santorum dropped out and the vast majority of pundits declared the race at the end. “The race isn’t over until the votes are...

    How can we conservatives tolerate Romney's campaign messages which are devoid of specific plans and full of cheerleading sound bites like "I'll fix all the problems when elected"? These empty sound bites are so easy for Obama to attack. On the other hand, Obama would have a very difficult time attacking the fact-filled plans of Newt Gingrich. See the Cspan link below. http://www.c-span.org/Campaign2012/Events/Newt-Gingrich-Delivers-Policy-Speech-in-Delaware/10737429794/ Come on Conservatives! Before it is too late, get behind Newt for President.
