    Lost congress?

    Congress is the one spending all the money. All Obama can do is cheer them on...

    Oh, you mean the loss of the Democrat controlled house! Oh, that was no doubt due to the voters' disgust with the decisions Congress has been making, along with a false idea that changing parties is going to make real changes. It's much the same thing that happened back in '06, when they threw out the Republicans and elected Democrats, expecting Tweedledum to be different from Tweedledee. Next time, they may just throw out the rest of the Democrats, again expecting something to change. After that, they'll throw out the Republicans, no doubt with the same result.

    We the people have had enough of Obama, but that's what happened when we elected a community organizer that doesn't know crap and blame others for his **** ups.

    What Newt needs to do, IMO, is find a way to put his past behind him, in talking points.
    The media is going to keep digging things up he said in 1992, or 1996 as if one cant change with the times.
    Newt is perfectly capable of running the country, and hes perfectly capable of convincing enough voters.
    But what he may not be up to is beating off the liberal media machine.

    That is a shame of course, not just that he cant but that he has to.

    Whomever has a chance of knocking Off Obama will have to do so by remaining calm, quick tongued, and witty.

    Its all about perception. substance will come out through the perception of not being frazzled by the pundits.

    If he can make it to the one on ones with Obama, he has a good shot...
    the mans not stupid, so dont count him out.

    No, he's not stupid, but I'd be very surprised to see him win the WH. That pesky "liberal media" will keep bringing up things he has said and done, after all.

    Erod may be right about the Democrats' worst nightmare, if his candidate can ever get the nomination, that is. Romney might be able to beat Obama, too, if he could get past the religious extremists and win the nomination.

    But, the other big elephant in the room is that Obama couldn't spend a nickle without the consent of Congress. Changing Congress involves more than just switching parties.

    But he didn't wait. He announced today, May 9th, 2011.

    Former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich has announced that he will be seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. president in 2012. Gingrich’s plans were made public via Facebook and Twitter Monday, where he also asked supporters to tune into his Fox News interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night.
    Gingrich is a political genius, with excellent ideas, but that won't save him from the personal baggage he carries with him. Obama would eat him alive. The GOP needs a better player in the game.

    Obama has something against him and that is his record of screw ups and I don't think that he can defend his stupidity, inefficiency, and ineptness. WE need a LEADER for change not a sleazy old politician who pretends to be somebody that he is not. If Obama is highly intelligent like some people think I have no idea why he hasn't applied it to his work. Actions mean more than words. That's my honest opinion.
    Catch me if you can.

    Why is that? I thought that Slick Willy taught us that the things you plan to smear him with are his personal life....Or is that just for Ind....Ahem I mean liberals?
