    Newt Gingrich to launch presidential bid Wednesday

    Newt Gingrich to launch presidential bid Wednesday - On Politics: Covering the US Congress, Governors, and the 2010 Election - USATODAY.com

    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.

    Question. Why would this man say such a thing?

    "No question Newt is an ideas machine, and he'll add intellectual heft to the debate," said Mark McKinnon, a former adviser to President George W. Bush. But "he's just been around the track one too many times. At a time when people are hungry for something different, new and refreshing, Newt just feels stale."
    My guess is, he's backing another horse.

    I could go for a Cain/Gingrich ticket.....That would be a wonderful thing to watch.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I think they both want the main seat though.

    Here is, in my estimation, a pretty comprehensive blog post detailing the possibilities.

    Instead of collecting talking points about how no one can beat Obama, you'all should be preparing your cry baby talking points and excuses for when Obama gets his ass handed to him in 2012.

    Newt is more intelligent than all of the other gops running. Hes not stale to me, hes far enough right but not off the charts like some of them.

    To believe Obama is easily defeat able, is just as dangerous as believing no one can beat him.
