    Look at the history of the Republican party and you will find we are not the racist party. Fulbright mentored Clinton. Wright mentored Obama...

    BTW, my first choice in 2000 was Keyes. He was the most eloquent and his positions are clearly unapologetic conservative.

    I wish he would run this time.

    Good luck believing in that.....there is zero chance that the GOP will ever nominate a black man or woman....at least for the next 20-30 years. Bottom line....the GOP cannot win the Presidency without the South. If they lose the South they lose 80% of their electoral votes...and the South being what it is...the GOP will never go that route.

    Gingrich? Eh, whatever. If my choice is Obama or Gingrich, I'd probably vote Gingrich but I wouldn't really be happy about it. Quite frankly, and this is going to piss off some GOP honks, I don't think Newt is much of an improvement over Obama. I think he's a hypocrite. He talks a good game but I don't think he backed it up last time he had some power, and electing him President would just mean more of the same.

    Unlikely....there are a few Southern States that are coming around...but the South is way too biblical based and votes mainly on the right-wing social agenda. The only way that the South might support a Democrat is if it is a conservative Democrat and the GOP were to nominate a black man or woman....and that is not going to happen anytime soon.

    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.


    LOL! Can a philanderer beat a pizza man in the primaries? What a great election this is going to be!

    I think Cain/Gingrich would be a compelling ticket. I don't concern myself overmuch with a candidate's moral failings as long as I think they can do the job.

    Be nice if our leaders displayed the same attitude, though.

    At first read, I thought this was tongue-in-cheek sarcasm. Then I noted the source. Wow!

    If those clowns are your "A" team, then save your money for races that matter.

    I'd like to believe so, but in honesty, this will be a distant memory by the time election roles around (and probably rightfully so). The economic landscape of America has to change if he's going to win. Also, if the GOP manages to cough up a serious contender, then their chances will increase exponentially.
