Gingrich = Substance, Romney = Fluff.Without Newt, next 4 months will be boring without ideas, plans

Be honest, without Newt Gingrich and his conservative ideas and plans for the country on radio, TV, newspapers, rallies, etc., the political discouse goes back to being really boring and insulting. Basically, there will be no passionate plans and ideas coming from Romney. We will be left with a beauty contest between Obama and his liberal "gushers" and Romney and his wife Ann trying to play "Leave it to Beaver" in front of the American public. Without Newt, for the next 4 months, we Americans will have to endure the mainstream media and Fox News pushing the shallow aspects of Obama and Romney. We Americans who are suffering daily with joblessness, high gas prices, a broken cultural society, liberal judges, etc. deserve better. Let's keep Newt active on the campaign trail by voting, tweeting, facebook, talking about our conservative ideas being pushed hard by Gingrich!

If Newt were president he wouldn’t need a press secretary.

Romney has twice as many ideas as anybody else, because he’s on both sides of every issue.

As Newt was rising becasue of his debate performance, there was a brief discussion in my workplace about him. I commented that more and more I was being drawn to support him. (Initially I was highly skeptical and view him as yesterday's news!) A work colleague commented well he couldn't support Newt because he didn't understand anything Newt was saying. This was not a stupid poorly educated (college) guy, he was a former Navy enlisted, played the stock market with some success again not stupid. Newt's idea oriented approach to issues based in US history and Constitutional context clearly didn't interest him and may have even bored him. I guess he was someone whose political context is completely built on sound bites. I now think that a majority of the electorate on both sides are like that.

I guess the point for me is, ‘You can lead voters to the polls but don't dare ask them to think!’

Interesting anecdote and all too prevalent and sad.

Sad in that, to this generation, the past is prologue to nothing. The past means nothing. It is all in the now, and like you say, in the soundbites and the emotional tug of the moment.

Ridiculous to think that you could learn anything from the past and our forbears. Much less bother with a stale old Constitution written by slave holders.

Your friend has no understanding, much less interest, in how governments operate or how his rights are secured. I’ve lived in the Eurozone. I wish your friend could imagine a world in which a body of eurocrats can one day decree the shape of a banana and the next declare water as a non-hydrate.

You wake up one day and the rules have changed. It is a world in which you fear for your sanity when you realize that your fate resides in the hands of 754 Euro Parliamentarians, and your only recourse is some European Ombudsman. Every day your country is losing its sovereignty with every one of their whims.

Tell your friend that a UK judge just sent a student to prison for 56 days for a tweet of his deemed racist. Ask him to imagine a world like that. And then ask him how such a world came to be.

Here's a better Newt campaign image. Please use it as often as possible. Help spread the word.

“When I get right down to it, Romney just bores the LIFE out of me, and I can’t figure out WHY people, ESPECIALLY so-called conservatives could EVER, EVER go for this guy? He’s so stilted and jerky as well as almost painful to listen to.”

The best I can ascertain is that many are just so frightened by 4 more years of Obama. This is not an unreasonable fear, except when it causes you to be foolish enough to think that Romney is any better.

There is an old saying that, “A drowning man will grab the blade of a sword to save himself.” The fear of Obama is driving folks to make irrational choices in setting for Romney.
