    IF NEWT is the candidate get ready for 4 more years of the current administration--if you though the last 4 were lousy, imagine the idiot in chief as a lame duck, New will not appeal to the majority of voters & thats what counts.

    Phil,,,,do you think a candidate worth over $200 MILLION with investments in the Cayman Islands will "appeal" to the majority of voters???

    Bill,,,I think you have hit on something,,,,the establishment R's gave us McCain and are trying to give us ANOTHER moderate,,,,

    Watched Karl Rove and he just said that Newt was thrown a "softball" by Juan Williams in the first SC debate,,,,he looked like he wanted to cry,,,,,Karl can't push Newt around and is wondering what he is going to do....

    I'm not a Romney or Newt guy, and I'm not sure I like Santorum either, but we have a long way to go before we'll know who is running against Obama.

    Don't get your panties in a twist just yet.

    Phil, Isn't is sad that "appeal to the majority of voters" trumps 'Honest, America-first leadership'? I do miss JFK calling a press conference and actually speaking to, and for the American people. (and sounding like he meant it) Sigh...

    What did Karl Rove say about giving Ron Paul 89 seconds of TV time for his part in a national debate?

    I believe Newt will be able to make the tough choices- something that Mitt will never do. I do not trust Santorum, as he feels his public image is more important than his professional image, evident when Paul busted him out by calling him sensitive.Ron Paul is, unfortunately un-electable. As a union member, I hate to see any of them elected, but as a gun owner I think Newt is the one to beat Obama.

    Newt needs a female running mate to gather the womens vote. If he makes it to the dance.....Barry probably won't debate him. Barry couldn't carry Newts jock strap in a debate. Newt would have him for lunch.

    Newt is the ONLY one who has come right out in FULL support of the 2nd Amendment.

    I just can't muster up enough respect to vote for a five time draft dodger. His excuse is that "What difference could I make." What a piece of $hit. I have to go with Romney by default.

    Remember in SC the primary is an open primary---these means a lot of Obama supporters had the chance to pick the candidate that they felt had the best chance of losing to Obama.

    I think he should pick Sarah P. I can see it now. Him giving her a slap on the a$% as she is walking to the podium, and him saying "Go get'em tiger". All the while he is giving his best Benny Hill impression

    I believe that Newts success has been his willingness to stand up to the media and that there is more resentment against the elite including the media than those in power realize and whichever candidate recognizes that and takes advantage of it will prevail. Every time Newt or any of them won't take any crap from the media they get a standing ovation. All of their policies for running the Gov't are the same otherwise. Romney is far to timid and Santorum just doesn't have the touch that Newt does.

    I agree with Errol Flynn that liberalism is an incurable mental disease.

    RE: vote for a five time draft dodger

    My cousin stayed in collage (Viet Nam era) until no longer draft eligible (thought he was never going to graduate). His brother and I both served at the same time in-county. Not a big deal then or now that he played the system.

    So anyway, don't vote for him. Sit out the election and give us four more years of Obama...

    Ryan and Ribio should be the twol running but since that is not happening Newt is the guys that says it the way it really is. He does it in a way the average guy like me could not put it without using a few colorful words that are not pleasant to hear.
    One other thing about Newt. He the shaft durring the Clinton term and it was not very well published at that time as now the Clintons do still control much of the Media and the Saudis are begining to get their fingers in fox news. All the media wants Romney for reason of easy to beat in the main election. Romney can't debate. He will go with the side that butters his bread.
    Newt has a bone to pick with the Clintons and with a little luck its will be payback time. If Newt gets in there probably be one hell-of-a lot of people going to jail within his first term. Believe me their is going to be alot of scaled down changes of all branches in fed. government. And more handed bsck to the local communities. Give them Hell Newt. Bill

    b12,,,,in his win speech in SC,,,,,he said that he is able to articulate what the American people feel,,,,he is right,,,,we see it; but cannot get it said where many will hear,,,,sometimes you get some bad with the good,,,,but with romney we have NO idea what we may get as he says what he thinks the crowd, that he is talking to at the time wants to hear....

    Some here have the idea that Gingrich can't win against Obama and they could very well be right. Far be it from me to know who'd win. If I were Obama, however, I would definitely want to face Romney in the election for a variety of reasons.


    •Romney flip-flops at the drop of a hat or a shift in the wind, something that can be readily pointed out. He can be readily labled just like Kerry was.

    •Romney has, at one time or another, supported verbally or through legislation nearly all of Obama's positions.

    •Obama can point to Romney to justify ObamaCare but show that Romney's version is bankrupting MA (not the ObamaCare won't do bad things to the U.S. economy).

    •Romney doesn't connect with or inspire passion in people, which is likely to significantly affect voter turnout in Obama's favor.

    •Romney has trouble saying anything when the talk strays from his boilerplate. Obama is good at saying nothing but Romney isn't.

    •Romney doesn't fight back. He won't even call Obama a socialist and will try to be politically correct.

    •Romney doesn't seem able to speak to the issues to any depth. He speaks in generalities and platitudes.

    •Romney comes across as one of the unctuous, moneyed elite, not someone people in flyover country can relate to.

    The election will likely be carried out in the manner of down and dirty Chicago politics, not some country club affair.

    Sending Romney may be like bringing a teddy bear to a South Chicago street fight.
