In the last 24 hours, former U.S. House speaker Newt Gingrich has touched base with several prominent Republicans in his former home state, telling them that he intends to make a run for president in 2012 using Georgia as his base and that he already has his eye on office space in Buckhead for a campaign headquarters.
Former U.S. House speaker Newt Gingrich
Gingrich met on Thursday with Nathan Deal, whom Gingrich endorsed during a critical phase of last years Republican primary for governor.
House Speaker David Ralston introduced Gingrich Thursday night at a downtown Atlanta affair hosted by the Paulding County Chamber of Commerce.
The visits and conversations some face-to-face, others on the phone appear to be an attempt by Gingrich to revive his old campaign network and lock down as much support as possible in a state won by Republican Mike Huckabee in the 2008 presidential primary.

Guliani might be in - he supposedly told Piers Morgan for a taped Monday's show that he will run as a "moderate" against Palin and will focus on Iowa & New Hampshire
Mitt is in - Guliani / Newt might hurt Mitts chances further by splitting the establishment vote
Cain is in
Pawlenty is in
Thune is looking into it
Huck doesn't appear to be in - rumors of his wife wanting to enjoy retirement from running for higher office but he might jump in late
I think Newt is a smart guy, but I can’t think of a situation where he would get my vote. I still see him sitting next to Pelosi on that bench (or whatever it was).
This is excellent news. We want as many RINOs as possible running to split the RINO vote.
Callista gave her consent...LOL.
Newt, leader of the Jerk Party.
telling them that he intends to make a run for president in 2012
For what party ?
Let’s not forget that the NEW republican Donald Trump (leftist democrat saying he’s a republican) may run as a republican.
1. Ruby G the cross dresser——— NO
2. Myth Romney aka Romneycare -— NO
3. DuhNewt the leftist ————— NO
4. Huckelberry fruad —————— NO
If ANY of these four win I will be staying home, it will mean our republic is DOA.
Palin/Bachman or Bachman/Palin
Thrill, thrill. Yawn.
Who is Cain?
Newt is a good historian and speaker, but he has too much baggage. The msm will pump up any rino in the primary and tear them apart in the general.
Let’s not forget that Sean will pump him up on his show everyday and worship him to help him run. I think they have a man crush.
Thats one way to look at it....
Personally, I want anybody but Romney, thats first and foremost...
I also have a feeling that Palin may not run, so I would like insurance.....
That’s nice Newt now please step to the back of the bus to exit...
Idjit turned into a newt again...
Newty’s time has passed...the train left the station LOOOONG time ago..
Plus, I’ll never forgive him for sitting on the couch with Nancy Piglosi
