Newt makes Romney and W seem like arch conservatives. IS there ONE issue where newt hasn’t taken a socialist position?

Doesn’t really matter if he gets the nomination or not. He’s not going to be president.

It's Myth's turn.

The RINO elite would rather have four more years of Ubama than an interloper.

Perhaps Newt is correct and "the era of Reagan is over". How else can you explain Newt, Romney, and Paul as the last ones standing to face a despot in the White House?

Lets not forget, not a single vote has been taken and people can still come to their senses.

All Public Released Polls are Lies! They are as fake as the “experts” who keep pushing AGW on us -using the same methodology to manipulate the population via perception. Think about it, would the conservative population of America really have the 2 worst rinos as their first choices? That absurd. Ignore them. Vote how you how want.

This Presidential campaign is like a high stakes game of “Woul you Rather.”

This is our last chance to turn the tide, without violence.

I hope everyone realizes that.

Folks, we’re just about ****ed if Zero gets a second term.

ABO!!! ‘cept Romney, of course.

Actually the polls release right before the 2008 election were pretty accurate—McCain got his ass handed to him. Just as they said he would.

Oh don’t get me wrong, I’ve stated before that at this point the whole GOP field sucks and I’m just hoping for a supermajority in both Houses.

Palin was my fav, and Cain bailed out, so I’m stuck with ABO now. FMR.

Actually that’s called self fulfilling prophecy. That’s how it works. AKA herding sheep. No way the two most for the agenda of everything the Tea Party is against are the real front runners. That’s absurd.

The problem for me is if this ship is going to sink, I want the proper captain at the bridge. Socialists created this, I don’t want a RINO there to take the blame.

While I want to be a ABO type of guy, I see the ice berg and we are on the SS Titanic. When she goes down, I don’t want the people in the life boats blaming conservatism.

LOL. Did you see the cover of TIME? “Why Don’t They Like Me?” with a big ugly closeup of Romney.

I can see it being real. Many people are looking for candidates who they think are “electable.” Whatever that means to them. If they believe Romney has the best chance to beat Obama, they might be for Romney. If they think Newt will kick Obongo’s butt in the debates and cruise to a landslide victory, they might be favoring him.

It’s not all about ideology with many conservatives. I don’t dismiss the polls out of hand just because the most conservative candidates seem to be bringing up the rear. There is more at play than meets the eye.

I agree totally. Obama will destroy the country if he wins another term. He has started his destruction he will finish it and we will be the ones who lose in the situation.

We get Newty in and then we join the Left in opposing every progressive thing he wants to do. That will be progress - paralize the whole process. No progress!

Part of me wants to sit this one out, the other part wants to hold his nose again and vote for the nominee, and yet another part wants to blow his nest egg on several thousand rounds of rifle ammo and disappear into the woods.

Uggghh.

You sure about that?

Newt is talking like a progressive and following in the foot steps of Obama on foreign policy. Look out America. Double whammy coming our way.

Message to RNC and 'Rovians' - so to speak and ET AL Repubs; including those at Fox News, who are steadfast in their support of Mitt!

YOU are NOT going to shove, force-feed or water board Repubs into believing that it is Mitt; who can/will/only save America; and beat Obama.

You are Freaking wrong in your assumptions! outside of Beltway; about who knows better in fact; about what America needs per Repub candidate.You are wrong in your assumptions about what is GOOD fro America!

Just as you are so wrong; in believing, the way to win in 2012 is to NOT criticse Obama? (but rather; stick to issues; because people do/will feel sorry for him. Again, 'what planet' and are you ALL lead by a Dem 'rat'/mole in RNC or what?)

Do what you think is right on the first two. The last is mandatory.

When the SHTF have an escape plan. Me, I am going back out to where I grew up and lived till 30 years old. I know everyone and most importantly, we all know who to trust out there and who not to. (and of course. where the guns are) It’s gods country, and a deep red part of Minnesota.

How is Newt better than Obama? Both Newt and Obama support amnesty for illegal aliens. As long as Obama is president, House Republicans will block anything that comes out of the White House.

Newt will push for another amnesty for illegal aliens. After voting for the 1986 amnesty that destroyed the Republican Party in California, Newt believes we should pass another amnesty for we can lose the entire Southwest to the Democrats.
