I was thinking a similar thought as I was watching Rick Perry talking to Megyn Kelly earlier.
As the world's leader and spokesman we have had George W Bush, then Obama. 12 years of embarrassingly inarticulate speakers. We must come across as a bunch of idiots to the world. Ronald Reagan, “The Great Communicator”.
Newt isn't Reagan, but Reagan was a friend of his. Newt speaks with authority and knowledge on most topics off the top of his head. He doesn't need a teleprompter, hell, he doesn't even need notes (written on his hand or otherwise).
It's not that I'm about impressing the world, but it sure would be nice to have a president who sounds intelligent for a change.
POST OF THE THREAD!
I guess this thread has punched my ticket, and I am now getting off the Cain Train. Too bad. I guess Newt will do. I don't have to hold my nose to vote for him as I would any other frontrunners (Mitt).
I really wish I had asked for his autograph when I saw him at the Atlanta airport in the late 90s - I wanted to go beg him to run for President (I still had '94 revolution fever). We locked eyes, and he smiled as if to say "Hey, someone recognizes me", but I was too chicken to say anything to him. All I could do was stare and grin back. GAH!
