Remember when conservative columnist George Will called Mitt Romney a ‚Äúrecidivist reviser of his principles‚ÄĚ? As it happens, the veteran pundit has nothing nicer to say about Newt Gingrich, whose astounding sudden popularity in the polls recently prompted the candidate himself to say he‚Äôll be the 2012 GOP nominee.

The MSM’s conservative poster boy hasn’t been impressing me lately, either.

Guess we’ll know for sure when the votes are cast. We’re being poll suckers.

The MSM wants us to pick Newt. Obama is doing the happy dance as Newt can’t win.

Will’s either. In fact, in that suit Will’s got a singleton or a void.

Newt can’t win.

Why?

Right now he's the front runner.

This has been posted at least once but it is worth a second look.

Despite the fact that George Will is in no position to comment on anyone’s “wisdom” since he has demonstrated many times that he has a severe lack of that characteristic himself I offer up the following simple rebuttal:

Newt, by the sheer strength of his will, brought the GOP back to competitiveness in the race to control the House of Representatives after 40 years of Dem control. I’m certain that George Will was not wise enough to recognize as early as Newt did that the House could be won by the GOP in 1994. I’m even more certain that George Will did not foresee that Newt could orchestrate budgets with nearly zero deficits when there was a sitting Dem President.

Will used to impress me.

Now, his label is much like those old chrome-coated plastic labels on a Cadillac...a sad reminder of a brand long-since beclowned.

Might as well scrap the election, ‘cos according to these pundits no Republican is good enough to be President.

Why don't you believe he can win in the general election?

If he's the nominee he will beat obama. The only Pub running for the nomination who can't beat obama is Romney.

“Newt” cheated on his first wife while she was bedridden in a cancer ward...then served her with divorce papers.

I don’t care what anybody else says about him, Will or otherwise.

I have a suspicion that the glue for his hair piece is causing mental problems.

George you are irrelevant.

newt was described by David Broder as a man with towering strengths and glaring faults. He has left main stage 14 years ago. Maybe after reflection and self examination he will overcome his faults and then again maybe not. He has a long time to prove himself and we can bail just as quickly as we did for the other not Romney's. I will say this one he has the ability to see the big picture and think beyond the next election.He is in many ways the one best prepared to seize the imitative and take back the country. But, on the ohter hand he could really step on it. We will look at him and if cant cut it we will have to go to Romney but I hope he is for real this time.

Obama and Newt are both narcissists. No way in hell I will ever vote for Newt. Even in general, I will have a LOT of inertia to drag myself to vote for him if he were the nominee.

OK George, let’s just wait for the perfect candidate to show up. Maybe by 2016.

Can you really stand 4 more years of this?

No. But, Newt will be hard to pull for. I will end up doing it because I always vote and I will vote against Obama. Same as I did in the last election (did not vote “for” McCain but voted his name against Obama).

Newt is a more bombastic narcissist compared to Obama.

Sorry, but his daughter disputes this scenario. He is a cheating,lying snake in the grass,but that Hospital stuff is not true. He had already asked Marianne to marry him before any divorce from wife(teacher)number one. Read Marianne's book,it is eye opening. He did the same thing to Marianne with Callista. It is a really disgusting story.
