Newt is not the man for the job at this time either.

Looks like most of us real conservatives will begin to look towards a third party then and run with it.

If we don’t get a conservative in office this term it will be a disaster for the country.

Tell me, who would you rather be seen as completely destroying the country in the next two years? A REAL Marxist or a RINO?

Either way we are screwed. Elect a Rino like Romney or Gingrich and its lights out anyway.

Gingrich cannot beat Obama anyway...Neither he nor Romney can beat Obama. The base simply won’t go along with either of these guys and they will lose badly next year.

“I don’t watch Hannity anymore. His ego is too large for my 42” TV.”

Well you should have because you would have heard the amazing and vast list of accomplishments Newt Gingrich has acheived for conservatives. Things like balancing the budget four consecutive years, first republican majority and 1st reelected republican majority since the 1920’s. A five trillion dollar fiscal shift to the good and the list goes on. Consider he has written fourteen books, mostly historical, the research and knowledge required. His recent stance on enemy combatants, his continual support of Israel and his ability to manipulate and compromise. Newt is a serious candidate for serious issues with the background and ability to turn this nation around.

I would love to see Newt lose for supporting DeDe alone, but there are plenty of other reasons to see him lose. His nasty remarks about Paul Ryan's plan for another and his contempt for the right.
