Newt CANNOT beat Ron Paul. His negatives are the highest of any candidates, and when the Dems start playing clips of him on the couch with Nancy Pelosi, and reminding America of his multi-million dollar Fannie-Mae influence peddeling scheme, as well as his co-endorsement with ACORN of a radical liberal in NY-23, he doesn’t have a chance.

It is almost comical to keep touting the candidate that hasn’t even been competitive in a single state since SC, as the “Only one who can beat Obama”.

In the general, discussion of couch sitting with pelosi and scazafava have zero impact. That is a primary issue. We would see bad photos of a fat Gingrich and constant reminders of his affairs. If he rises back up, he could get beyond some of those issues.

The conservative will always have the highest negatives, and you think the Dems will run those ads? How does that help them?

The ads the dems want to run are the ones of Santorum driving away Catholic voters and women.

I think it's comical to believe the dims would run such ads. It undermines many of the BS arguments on their weakest flanks.

Oh, and I think it was Freddie, not Fannie.

From Ariz. debate:

The former Pennsylvania senator also struggled to explain his endorsement of GOP turncoat Arlen Specter, his concern about allowing women to assume combat duties, and his distinction between “good” and “bad” earmarks.

At one point, rival Ron Paul, the Texas congressman, complained, “This demonstrates the problem that I’m talking about: There’s always an excuse to do this.”

But it was Mitt Romney, especially interested in preventing Santorum from beating him in his native Michigan, who left the former senator stammering moments later when he accused him of alternately embracing federal family planning funding known as Title X.

Santorum offered his own version of Democrat John Kerry’s famous 2004 “I voted for it before I voted against it” declaration in response.

“I think I was making it clear that, while I have a personal more objection to it, even though I don’t support it, that I voted for bills that included it. And I made it very clear in subsequent interviews that I don’t support that, I’ve never supported it, and have, on an individual basis, have voted against it. That’s why I proposed Title XX to counterbalance it,” said Santorum.

The audience at the Mesa Performing Arts Center responded with boos.

*********************

Just two of the mistakes Santorum has made besides the fact his own state did not re-elect him. He was also an earmark fanatic. As for Title X. he voted for it before he voted against it. Is that the kind of president you want...AGAIN?

Go ahead and vote for him and when he loses we’ll be here waiting.
If Romney can make Santorum stutter ansd sweat, just imagine what obama will do to him!

Pictures of Newt do not make law, Santorum was and is a failed senator.

You are carrying a lot of Newt baggage to this thread, old worn out news.

Since it is so heavy for you, take a load off, I will carry NEWTS "so called" baggage for awhile.

Well I'll be, it's really light as a feather now, as there is nothing in it anymore.
