please ping to Newt ping list
Be nice if we had politicians with fundamentally Christian values as well, Newt. What’s your excuse.
Compassionate conservativism 2.0 ?
Amnesty, global warming, mandatory obamacare, bashing conservatives and admirations for hillary and dr berwick all make sense now.
OMG Newt just lost the Jewish vote;)
Newt should be careful do not pee on the man with the lightning. Talk about flapping your gums about something you know nothing about. Time to stop talking newt.
The crap thrown at Cain are only rumors. The pattern of personal behavior alleged in those rumors in Newt are true. Women are not going to vote for him.
He's white, he's old, he's fat and he can't control his schlong. Women and the mushy middle might be able to overlook two of the four. A few might even be able to overlook three of the four. Too few will be able to overlook all four.
The presidential election is a beauty contest just as much as it is a brain contest.
Coming from the man who has concerns about right wing social engineering its pretty rich.
Not that Newt would know anything about either.
The Constitution is fundamentally a very Christian document, thus your comment is redundant.
It just seems like Newt is trying to express all the applicable Conservative ideas now that he thinks he’s the front-runner (i.e. he took a hardline on the border issue yesterday). He has not been a consistent conservative.
I believe Newt is the most qualified individual to push Obama off the podium and restore Americas spirit. We dont like Newt, we dont quite trust him - but we can rest assured he will attempt to do what is right for America and the Constitution. Plus, he knows the treachery of Washington DC - where the bodies are buried and who buried them.
Disagree about women not voting for Newt. The most intelligent are not voting for a husband. The most realistic have experienced infidelity in their own lives or those of friends and family and understand redemption. The others are blaming the women who seduced a married man. Best of all - a man who admits to losing his way - is a cinch.
Well, this he made these statements a year ago.
I wonder if he will make an “adultery” exception for them.
I really hope Newt means what he says. His past transgressions, moral and political, have him on a short leash with the base.
Hard to be both.
Heh! I was thinking the same thing!
(Who cares. I think the country may be over “race.” At this point, people want COMPETENCE over the right skin color.
How old is Newt? He’s NOT frail by any means — and he surely seems at the peak of his intellectual capacity.
Uh, Chris Christie comes to mind...and Newt can lose weight. One thing he could do — pick a young, vibrant, highly qualified VP.
and he can’t control his schlong
Looks to me like he’s pretty happily married these days. His wife seems to share his values, is even closely involved in promoting conservative principles right alongside him. She’s no run of the mill trophy wife.
Women who “hate” Newt are likely lost liberal women who would never vote for him anyway. I say forget trying to woo the libwoman vote. Thinking (i.e., conservative women) will come out to vote for him.
Just so long as they are NOT divorce lawyers. ;-)
I thought the Constitution was religion neutral. Please support your claim. Perhaps you are thinking of the Declaration of Independence.
LOL! I'm pretty sure that when Newt asks for "lawyers with fundamentally Christian values", he doesn't mean more divorce lawyers!
Not Convinced? Try This!
The fat thing he could overcome just as Chris Christie did> The schlong thing, not so easily. It is resume enhancement for a Democrat. It has, at least traditionally, been a career ender for Republicans.
Yes, things could change. But traditions die hard. It looks increasingly likely that Newt will be the default nominee by the process of elimination.
Let's hope his opponents put up some really nasty advertising just to see how he handles it. Because it will be nothing like what Obama is going to throw at him..
Despite what the polls say, Newt will be the underdog. Obozo and his enemedia sycophants will win if they can make the election about Newt, his flip-flops and his schlong management problems. Newt will squeak out a narrow win only if he can avoid the beauty contest angle and keep the focus on the economy and Zer0's gross mismanagement.
