The word among GOP insiders here in Georgia is that Newt Gingrich is considering throwing his name in the hat to be the next Chairman for the RNC....

I’m all for Newt taking over the RNC but I also want some fresh CONSERVATIVE faces in the Senate and House Minority leadership. If they were a coach and they had their losing record they would have been fired long ago. It’s time to clean out the RINO’s!
this would be going in the right direction, if not him, someone like him or even better a female version of him.
Newt - One of the great Conservative intellects of our time. What took so long!
Ya know, this just might be the best place for Newt....
I could go for this, as long as he’s the merciless, smart-strategizing, take-no-prisoners Newt of old and not the simple goofball he was during the past year.
Please Newt do it!!!!
He’s a brilliant political strategist. he knows how to get Repubs elected.
Does that sound like someone we could use right about now?
I love it,if this could happen it would be awesome.
He should have been the GOP candidate.The Dems wouldn’t havehad any idea what hit them.
If not, I wonder would Fred consider? We need someone with "CORE" Conservative values.
You need to drop the Sarah Palin as founding father myth. She is badly maligned for her role in the campaign, but she is not the person who is going to figure out the direction for the Republican Party. Newt is about the only guy who is actually offering ideas to solve problems.
The problem the Republicans have are not because of Newt but despite him. They were all for the Gingrich revolution until they got power. Then they were merely interested in more pork for their districts.
When no one is offering solutions to problems, identity politics is all there is. But identity politics are not going to solve the business cycle burst credit bubble depression we are now experiencing. Identity politics are not going to figure out what how A-stan will end. Idenity politics is not going to solve Israel striking Iran's nuclear sites because idiots like you think it is all about identity politics. Pretty soon real problems are going to be screaming for real solutions.
Newt is a political whore,
Actually you are a political idiot. You wouldn't know a real idea if it dropped on your head. I don't think Newt ever claimed he has all the answers. But he has identified problems, has offered up solutions and asks that folks enter the debate and figure it out. No one else is showing up for the debate. Idiots like you run away screaming.
what the Republican Party needs is more old overweight white guys to get our message out
See what I mean. You think we even know what the message to get out is. You clearly don't. You are totally f'in clueless. I don't know what branch of conservatism you come from, but the problem is, no one f'in cares about your ideology. What they care about is how you are going to solve problems. You don't know. You are concerned about the age and color of the messenger and whether that metrosexual is fit to walk runways.
We have two guys who argued, "I didn't even think we should be in Iraq" vs "I have the experience to get us out." Neither offered an actual solution to this or anything else. Credit crunch. One took a time out. The other didn't. Who gives a flying. Neither said how we were going to solve it.
Hmmm. Seems like a good idea. Probably won’t happen then.
This would be awesome - if it’s Newt or Michael Steele the first priorty is to educate the public on conservatism...
Then identify the RINO’s and support the candidates who advocate conservatism and boot the RINO’s out in the 2010 and 2012 primaries!
I agree. Once one is educated on what conservatism REALLY is, they don’t usually go back.
It's a direct slap in the face of the RINOs.
They've spit in the conservatives' faces for so long...
How many more senile, doddering GOP compromisers are there before we've gotten rid of all of them?
Seriously, Mel Martinez, Lindsay Grahamnesty, McCain's immigration advisor, fatass Hastert, ...
And what's with Bob Barr being an ACLU member and running for Prez (just to draw votes from the GOP...which cost us North Carolina).
I know, it's only one little thing. Just as Brunner in Ohio is one little thing. And Eddie Rendell and fraud in Pennsylvania is one little thing. And the theft of the MN Senate by Franken is one little thing.
Add up five or six or a dozen little things, and you have a catastrophe.
Where are the DEM calamities?
Even Elliot Spitzer is not being prosecuted. What favors or threats were involved with that?
I’m with you, Leo. What we need is a Lee Atwater. V’s wife.
IMHO Newt is damaged goods. Also he folded at the wrong time. I have concerns about his long term goals. Does anybody here remember him on the park bench with Sharpton just a few months ago? No, of course not.
He was damaged by FReeper turncoats
