Gingrich is the DREAM candidate for the left for that exact reason. If Gingrich is the nominee the electorate will be played like a well tuned fiddle by the laimstream media over Gingrich's baggage. How quickly people forget how he was run out of town last time....
Well that is his opinion. Mine is that I will NEVER vote for someone who has been married three times! Take that to the bank because I am serious.
Maybe they can hold their debates on a loveseat.
Newtus Agustus is soooooooooooo out of touch with what’s going on today. He has nothing to add to the debate that is revelant.
My bet is that he will announce by May 1 (The deadline Fox has imposed or his contract is TERMINATED) that he will not be running. Me thinks he like being Hannity’s good buddy and the speaking fees and the book sales and the paid TV appearances.
Bingo! If he'll lie and cheat on his wife, the one person (or in this case three people) that you stood before God and everybody and swore you would honor until one of you dies, you will lie to and cheat on me in a heartbeat. Character matters because we're not always there to keep an eye on them behind closed doors.....
Real unbiased source you have here. He needs to spend more time outside of Washington DC to see how grassroots conservatives feel about Beltway insiders such as himself and Newt.
LOL! Good catch!
Serving divorce papers on your wife when she is hospitalized for breast cancer is far beyond a mere "personal foible."
I have a high opinion of Newt's intellect but his personal life has made him unelectable IMO.
Repudiate your climate change position and then we can talk Newt. Not promising I can still believe you though.
I’d vote for him, big time.
I hadn’t seen the video, just the picture. Stick a fork in Newtie, he’s way over done.
Something creepy about a guy who hasn’t aged a day in 17 years:
Newt Gingrich: The one person who would give Obama fits in any debate! He is the single candidate who Obama absolutely fears!
Chris Christie: Sharp, tough and nasty. Would be very good. Not a good #2
Bob McDonnell: May be a sleeper. Very good and can not run again for Gov.
Mitch Daniels: Good man, a proven record, may be #2
Michele Bachmann: May be a good #2 or better as future Speaker.
Jim DeMint: Good man but he does not have the debating skills needed.
John Thune: He is not interested in #1 but may be good #2.
Mike Pence: Good man.
Paul Ryan: We need him where he is. Good #2.
Sarah Palin: Don't think so. Love her and most of all TRUST her but....
Tim Pawlenty: Not really. A little Rino-ish.
Mike Huckabee: NO but I like him as a person.
Jon Huntsman: NO, has worked for Obama in China.
Marco Rubio: Not yet and soft on illegal immigration
Bobby Jindal: No
Scott Brown: No
Mitt Romney: ABSOLUTE NOT, NEVER!!
The media won't overlook Newt's baggage, when it comes to being president. Once he announces, Saturday Night Live will go on a crusade to mock him every week. Kids who never heard of him will learn about him from SNL and Bill Mahr.
LOL, lets give them a bit of a break, the MSM pitched in to help. :)
Draft Newt Gingrich for President (2012) Facebook fan page.
The only “Drafting Call” for Newtus Agustus will be coming from the democrats Dede and Nancy Pelosi.
Agree. Newt is heads and shoulders above most of the field with his encyclopedic knowledge and razor-sharp intellect grounded in conservative philosophy.
Newt has issues, he has screwed up personally, I get that.
However, his divorce record would not keep him being hired to run a Fortune 500 company because he is a proven performer.
Plus I feel Gingrich will willingly speak to these issues when confronted.
Regarding this virulent anti-Ginrich block, ( by the way, a group that the libs LOVE, since it is eviscerating one of their most threatening foes)...
I am always amazed that some conservatives find it impossible to think strategically-—I do not see Sarah Palin having a snow ball’s chance in hell of winning—although I admire her immensely-—but there is a diehard segment that will only consider her.
That naive blind and rigid thinking is what put Bill Clinton into office with just 43% of the vote because the same stubborn mentality backed the unelectable Perot, they were so wrapped in a personal fantasy that he would win.
We need—as never before—to use our most effective weapons against the liberal onslaught—being self-defeating purists will kill our chances.
I will not be surprised if the candidate is someone who has not seen the spotlight yet, a complete dark horse.
Be sure to drop us a postcard when you reach Shangri-la...
