Newt’s important in his own mind.

Newt Gingrich should be running the RNC.

Not this stuff again. Newt had his chance and like Delay and others choose to quit and become a useful idiot. Time to move on.

“Newt’s important in his own mind.”

Many of the points he makes are important. That’s what’s important.

I’ll second that!!! I personally dislike him, but he has put a fine point on some of the intellectual arguments we’re engaged in.

Wrong.

HE’s keeping it on the front burner, a very useful thing in my eyes.

Maybe I missed it, but right now he’s talking about education and research.

Newt “breaks it down” like no one else can.

Newt did not chose to quit, do to his roving eye he was forced out because he would have been exposed as a hypocrite. Tom Delay had to quit because of a wormy little Texas thug masquerading as a prosecutor indicted him. Under rules the Republicans instituted he was forced to step down. Ronnie (the idiot)Earle who has failed to bring his case to court because he doesn’t have one did the same thing to Kay Baily Hutchison. He eventually dropped her case after she was elected to the Senate. Newt deserved to be relived of command Tom Delay did not.

Agreed. There are no conservative pundits on the circuit today that can promote a conservative idealogy as well as Newt. He wouldn’t have a snowball’s chance in a national election but he can communicate in clear, simple and precise terms.

Newt is a hypocrite and conservatives are not allowed to exist in the MSM that way. Delay a quitter. If he was exonerated he should return.

So far he has not been exonerated because the prosecutor has put it on the back burner. He will eventually get his day in court but it will be a while. Tom Delay was extremely effective and that is why this disgusting little worm was dragged out from under his rock to trump this BS up. Having said all I have about Newt and Tom Delay I still like both of them quite a lot. It’s just that in Newt’s case I can’t be hypocritical about his failings. He is however a very brilliant individual.

For all the baggage . . . listen to the subject speech, and compare it to what McCain just said - can you honestly say you wouldn't accept Gingrich as Republican nominee in a heartbeat when the alternative is John McCain?

I know I would.

I do not find either person acceptable. Between a fruitcake liberal republican and a whore-mongering republican with a history of cozying up to Hillary there is no choice.

“can you honestly say you wouldn’t accept Gingrich as Republican nominee in a heartbeat when the alternative is John McCain?”

Without a doubt, but Newt’s day is over. As a potential candidate, he has nothing to realistically offer, and too much baggage.

An absolutely brilliant, brilliant rebuttal to Obama.

I was bowled over by Newt's deeply radical solution for education and his bold attack on the NEA.

I've raised two children and managed to get them well-educated despite the public education system. His proposals strike directly at the heart at this souless, aimless warehousing of our youth.

While not of quite the same caliber, Newt is our dumbed-down generation's version of Bill Buckley.

Good evening.
“Newt Gingrich should be running the RNC.”

Newt should be President.

Oh, I disagree. Two completely different individuals with different talents and strengths. Buckley was a philosopher. Gingrich is an historian. His genius lies in his ability to comprehend the operations of institutions and systemic cultural weaknesses.

Oh, I agree. They are not the same.

But both have much the same purpose. To stay on the outside as a critical observer and use keen insight to promote conservative values.

We need both -- the philosopher and the doer.

I'm rediscovering Gingrich. I admired his leadership in Congress. We haven't seen anything like it since.

His "Platform of the American People" is so full of common sense, you'd read and think, "If we accomplished this, what would we have to argue about?"

His Real Change concept -- The whole idea of reforming government institutions from their 19th and 20th century, New Deal formats into leaner, more technologically advanced systems that address 21st century social demands just fascinates me.
