    Politics is dirty pool. It would quickly devolve into his marriages. I personally like Newt. I'd strongly consider voting for him, he'd have lay out his platform and plans as President for me to make a final decision of course, but I wouldn't discount him as I would Huckabee or Palin right off the bat. Hell, maybe Pawlenty would be OK too, I just don't really have information on him. Though in general, I do like the idea of taking the President from State governors as they are executives of their own state government. Much better than legislatures in the executive seat.

    Yea, the divorces would come up but do you think Americans would actually care? Newt could simply stick to policy discussion and emphasize the need to talk about the issues instead of resorting to smear tactics. Americans like that.

    We seemingly care about John and Kate. I wouldn't be surprised if the divorce thing gets spun into something dirty.

    Oh good.
    I'll hang onto my 'John Edwards for Prez' tshirt then.

    Thumbs up Re: Poll: Huckabee, Gingrich, Palin or Pawlenty?

    This is all true; however, Mitt is the one that got what it takes to get this country back in order.

    Be Sure to check back at the poll to vote and see who is in the lead (currently Huckabee with Newt in second place)

    That is pretty amazing because when it comes to politics they are political opposites.........

    You know man, I really hate Romney. I think he is EVERYTHING that is wrong with the modern GOP:

    Rich, white guy that inhereted all his money. (Silverspoon)

    Major flip-flopper on several issues. (Hypocrite)

    Never served the country in any manner, nor did any of his five able-bodied sons, but remains jingoistic. (Chickenhawk)

    Greasy Hair, fake smile. Weirdo religion.

    Bottom Line: Ass Clown.

    GOP 2012? Ron Paul!

    He inherited $0 dollars from his father. Earned his money on his own, and is rich... can you blame him for accomplishing the American dream via capitalism, hard work, and determination?

    Major flip-flopper on several issues. (Hypocrite)
    People are allowed to change their opinion/view of certain issues.

    Never served the country in any manner, nor did any of his five able-bodied sons, but remains jingoistic. (Chickenhawk)
    He was hired as the CEO of the 2002 Winter games and donated his entire salary plus 1 million to charity. He has also created more jobs and saved more businesses than anyone out there... how is this not helping the country?



    And delivering 3000 babies all of the sudden makes you qualified to lead the country? Don't get me wrong, Ron Paul had some great ideas... but so do I; so does everyone.... As far as IMPLEMENTEDing good ideas in the private sector and in public service positions - Mitt romney is the clear winner. Ron Paul couldn't dream of leading a country, the guy couldn't run a lemonade stand.

    The biggest problem with Romney is that you just don't really know where he stands on issues. That's why I really don't like the dude so much. You can't be sure that the Romney you elected is the Romney who will take office.
