THE DAY OF THE 50+ OVERWEIGHT CAUCASIAN CAREER POLITICIAN IS OVER. DONE. FINISHED.
Newt is a political whore, as some have rightly pointed out re: Pelosi/Global Warming, but even if he wasn’t and still had some integrity after all that time in Washington, his day is simply done. it doesn’t matter how smart he might be.
America 2008 = IDENTITY POLITICS
hell even McCain understands this (hence Palin) and his whole campaign was one long concession speech.
seriously...some of you just astound me...
‘what the Republican Party needs is more old overweight white guys to get our message out’
i’d rather someone (seemingly) honest and young like Joe The Plumber took over.
wow this whole thread is just frustrating.
Your whole post illustrates specifically why this particular position is perfect for newt. Dean the scream was the DNC Chair, they have him hidden in a closet somewhere, but he did a great job, clearly.
oh man - I totally agree. This whole thread could be subtitled “ARE YOU SERIOUS???”
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.
