    Under normal circumstances, Newt wouldn't garner anywhere near the amount of independant votes as he otherwise would in this economy. I agree with those that say he has too much baggage. He really does, and the left wing media is just frothing at the mouth at the chance to vet this man. He can't win under those circumstances, however, we have a terrible economy, and even though I'm not personally convinced anyone is going to fix it the way it needs to be done, Newt would be a far sight better than Obama in that regard.. He'd get my vote on the economy, and on foreign policy. He would fail on immigration, and social politics against Obama. It would be close, perhaps a lot closer than it really should be, IMO.

    I think the GOP can do better than Newt as their Presidential candidate!

    Re: Newt Gingrich to launch presidential bid Wednesday

    So, now it's Gingrich. I keep picturing a clown car, and most of them have already exited. Just when we think there couldn't possibly be one more in the car, Newt pops out. I wonder if there are more?

    What is the difference between Newt and a newt?

    I am tired of people talking about the rich as if they were anti- American or the enemy. These people worked their behinds to go to school and become somebody. Lazy people want something for nothing by siting on their hands and expect the government to support them for life if possible.

    Lazy people should get off their behinds and make something of themselves that way they don't have to depend on nobody but that's why we have democrat politicians so they can support them.

    Punish the rich should be the democrat's logo.
    Bravo, excellent attack on the middle class on behalf of the rich! We will keep this in mind next November! Thanks for the constant reminders!

    All Newt Gingrich Really Wants To Do Is ‘Screw America’

    "In advance of what is looking more an more like a presidential run in 2012, Newt Gingrich recently raised some eyebrows with his interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody in which he explained his past indiscretions (marital infidelities) by blaming his love for this country. Yes, the meme that sprang from this was that Gingrich cheated on his wives because of his patriotism. Or, as Stephen Colbert put it last night, Gingrich “really just wanted to screw America.”

    Gingrich’s past marital infidelities are certain to be raised by his political opponents in the coming year and a half, and so its probably somewhat politically expedient for Gingrich to get ahead of this meme. Best to deal with jokes and snipes of this sort in Spring of 2011 than in Fall of 2012. However, if the “Gingrich wants to screw America” joke takes flight and has some persistent media play, well, that could pose a more significant problem for the GOP candidate."

    No doubt Stewart would like to see a Gingrich candidacy much more than any of his ex wives would.

    Here are some interesting quotes by Newt the newt:
    I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time [my grandchildren are] my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American.” [Address to Cornerstone Church in Texas, March 2011]

    (2) “The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument.” [To Mother Jones magazine, October 1989]
    There are more gems of wisdom here.

    That is messed up too. Racism in anyway from any side is wrong.

    I think a lot of folks are doing a disservice to black folks in this thread by suggesting they cannot think for themselves.

    More racism: suggesting that black folks cannot think enough to understand that they must help themselves. Tell that to the black folks that work their ass of daily and then get back to me. Oh and also try telling that to our POTUS

    You are being racist and sterotyping.

    BTW, the black folks are smart enough to know who has their back and it is not the right wingers.

    Easy on the racism charge, chief. Only the simple-minded can only see things in such a way.

    This is why Democrats just take them for granted. They could run a rented mule, and it'd win.
    You know what? You are suggesting that 95 percent of people will never agree on anything politically? Of course not if we have people like you thinking this way! You are part of the problem and why racism will never be gone cause you are one of those folks that feel that grown adults cannot even be mature enough to agree in big groups. I bet you do not like compromise either
