Yes, Newt will soar. I really think he is going to go higher in the polls as people hear him speak and in the debates.
There was an interesting call from a woman listener on Rush today. She said she hasn’t decided who to vote for yet, and compared it to dating a bunch of guys to try to find the right one. Newt is the old boyfriend who she had written off after the Pelosi/global warming thing and other stuff. Then he shows up at your front door with flowers and a new sports car and talks you into going for a ride. You find yourself remembering what you liked the first time, how he made you laugh and the good times you had (like the Contract With America, balanced budget, welfare reform), and start to think maybe he wasn’t so bad after all. She was kind of funny, but also made a good case.
“Will ‘New Newt’ prevail? (Will he make a comeback like Nixon in 1968?)”
Sure and that turned out just great, didn’t it?
What drives these men? Men like Newt and Romney who would do or say ANYTHING to become president? Is it a love of country or love of themselves? Quest for power? How do you trust them? I can’t.
I find it interesting how often the Newt haters here are posting articles from liberal rags. Hmmmm
Maybe Newt can give a ‘Checkers’ type speech to the American public on the ‘box’.....’coast to coast’ of course, (older FReepers will get those meanings!!), I still see CainTrain and Newt as the ticket. Just say no to mitt!!!
It’s true that Nixon changed his image enough to get elected. But the rest is history.
We're in serious times, and voters look to serious people in such times. Cain was the favorite a couple weeks ago, but I don't think it was the scandals that knocked him down; it was the knot in his supporters' stomachs whenever he was asked a serious question--the thought "Oh, please God, don't let him screw up!" The closer we get to voting, the more comfortable voters feel with Newt. He's a semi-conservative who is sometimes off the wagon, but no one has any fear that he's going to bomb in a debate with Obama.
I'm not wild about Newt given his too-frequent dalliances with leftist ideas, but given the other viable options of Cain and Romney, Newt looks good by comparison.
Yes...and remember, he’s not a dictator; presidents have the final say. He’ll have to intelligently deal with congress.
Best man for the job.
"The New Dick...it's short, it's sweet and everyone wants to see it."
thinly disguised to link a person with a thoroughly disgraced one -
too many of you are falling for it. The media still rules the day...
Not if the people with brains and deep regard for their country vote for someone else. Newt is a liberal. A tiger does not change it’s stripes. If they try it washes off in the next rainfall!
Yesterday I read a comparison of Newt to Churchill.
Now a comparison to Nixon.
I think the Churchill comparison is more apt.
He probably will prevail. And things will be the same in Washington. Sad that Bachmann lost....
We will never leave hell if he is elected.
But Newt was born for this fight. He has the intellect, the will and the energy to hang in there round after round and deliver blows of his own.
And that's what it takes to stand up to the forces of leftism when they decide to turn the media hounds loose. They fight dirty and they fight to kill.
May the force be with you, Newt.
I glossed over this item in the article when I read it. But it pretty much says it all:
New Newt is conciliatory, even bipartisan. In several debates, he's refused to criticize his rivals and has scolded moderators for gasp! trying to accentuate their differences. As president, he told voters in Iowa, one his first acts would be to reach out to Democrats.
"It's become much too partisan in both parties," said the man who has been accused of destroying the bipartisan tradition in the House of Representatives.
