Yea. McCain is winning again. Oh... That’s Gingrich. It’s hard to tell the difference.
McCain refused to criticize Obama.
Gingrich doesn’t have that problem.
That’s one difference right there.
And Gingrich has actually balanced a federal budget before and cut entitlement spending.
I wish we could hurry this process a bit so Willard can start his 2016 campaign.
Dude’s been running since 2000. Surely he’s smart enough to get the message after campaigning nearly a dozen years and spending untold millions to poll as low as he does.
That's a VERY big "one" indeed.
As much as I earlier had liked Cain or even Perry, no one has consistently criticized Obama and the rotten media as much as Newt. It would be nice if some of the others would do so.
We’ll see. Gingrich and Romney are virtually identical in my book no as well. Gingrich=Romney=McCain=Dole They are all pretty much the same. I admire musch about every one of them but they are all flawed deeply philosophically.
I’ll take Bachman, Santorum or Perry.
Hell, I would draft Donald Trump in a heart beat now.
We are headed for 1996 all over again right now.
I didn’t forget to comment on Ru Pau, I am only discussing Republicans and those who at least TRY to be conservatives.

And McCain said we do not need to be afraid of Obama, while Newt said he is destroying America, but besides that they’re exactly the same!!!!!!!!
I don't vote till June.
I doesn't look like any of these folks will still be in the contest at that point.
Welcome to 1996.
anyone verify this?
In a thumbnail, Congress accepted the committee report, which found that Gingrich used tax exempt contributions for political purposes and then attempted to mislead the Ethics Committee about it. Pelosi sat on the Ethics Committee at the time, so has vivid knowledge of the whole business.
20 year old charges that were found bogus ? that’s the best you can do ?
nice try, mitt is going to lose.
Gingrich, while not exactly my first choice (or my second), is head and shoulders above McCain or Romney.
Probably more conservative than W — certainly more fiscally conservative.
So a marked improvement.
Not seeing it that way..Gingrich is way better thinking on his feet, defending his positions, attacking the other guys weaknesses, and formulating strategy and policy than any of those other lightweights you mentioned. I don’t care much about their answers on immigration or cap and trade or whatever issue, because none of them do what they say anyway. We need someone who can put Obama on the defensive for once...
Myth has been running since he was a sperm.
He is his father’s loser son.
Agree with your analysis. Nancy, by opening up 20y old charges has in effect opened the playbook. Pay back is a bitch...a real bitch!
People talk about the ego of such-and-such candidate, but no one comments on the ego Mitt must have in order to think he is going to, much less deserves to win, when he can only get 23% of the polling support, after running FOREVER.
I could never do that. If only 1 in 4 or 5 people wanted to vote for me, I believe I would listen to the will of the people and give it up. But not the Mittster... he's still avoiding interviews, avoiding answering questions, avoiding making any mistakes, and banking on being the last man standing.
I just don't get it.
mcpain thought that since he was the "maverick" the press was his friend, Newt is under no delusion.
Since mcpain lost, and went back to being the thorn in the side of conservatives, the press now treats him as the "elder statesman", but it's only when they want to use him or his fat, dumb daughter.
I heard if she leaked them she would be brought up on charges
” he’s still avoiding interviews, avoiding answering questions,”
same as obambi and know one pays attention
Great news!!!!!!!!!!!! Newt is also gaining Tea Party Support, UP in Fla and SC and even in Romney’s backyard. Bet the talking heads on Fox News and the MSM are spinning like a top.
“Gingrich and Romney are virtually identical in my book no as well. Gingrich=Romney=McCain=Dole They are all pretty much the same. I admire much about every one of them but they are all flawed deeply philosophically.

Blows my mind! Gingrich is far from perfect, but certainly far more conservative than Perry or Romney.
Romeny, we all know what he is. Perry, he supports a dream act in his state and runs high deficits. Gingrich is the last Speaker to balance a Federal budget.
My Rino beats your Rino....wooo um hooo
He balanced the budget? thats like so 15 years ago...just today he says
GINGRICH: Well, it depends on what youre subsidizing. The idea of having economic incentives for manufacturing goes back to Alexander Hamiltons first report of manufacturing which I believe was 1791. We have always had a bias in favor of investing in the future. We built the transcontinental railroads that way. The Erie Canal was built that way. Weve always believed that having a strong infrastructure and having a strong energy system are net advantages because theyve made us richer and more powerful than any country in the world. But what I object to is subsidizing things that dont work and things that arent creating a better future. And the problem with the modern welfare state is it actually encourages people to the wrong behaviors, encourages them not to work, encourages them not to study.
good look with that balanced budget with this version of newt
Right. Newt and Mitt are polar opposites!
Mitt is a pro-abortion, big government progressive.
Newt is a pro-life, budget balancing Reaganite who helped usher in the Republican majority, the Reagan Revolution and the long lasting Reagan economy.
Mitt’s legacy is RomneyCare, taxpayer funded abortion, gay marriage, liberal activist judges, an all but destroyed Republican brand in Massachusetts and a bankrupt state. And he’s proud of it.
I have no problem with Bachmann, Santorum or Perry, other than they can’t seem to get out of the gates or stay long on the track without stumbling and taking hard falls. Wouldn’t trust Trump other than cheer leader.
Unlike McCain, I believe Newt is capable and unafraid to take the fight to the enemy and win! And that’s what we need.
Well, tax incentives are sometimes useful to spur economic development—if not overdone. Would be nice to have a tax problem in manufacturing for a change. That would mean we’re making some headway.
Sorry sir. It’s your site. I just disagree with your analysis.
Did I misstate the actual record?
I will vote and work hard for the nominee. Unless maybe it is Ron Paul. LOL
I agree with your analysis and love Free Republic. Thanks for all that you do to promote freedom and liberty in these United States of America!
I think Bachmann might have trouble being re-elected to Congress.
I want him to take the fight to the enemy and stomp his friggin guts out and feed em to the buzzards.
But that's just me. And a few million of my friends.
Not true at all. There are tons of differences. I don't have time to educate you, so please do some research to educate yourself.
No, You just left out a whole lot of liberal missteps by Gingrich over the last decade. He is to the left of Romney on healthcare and environmental issues. That is a problem in my book. I think he is great on some issues but he is definitely a big government Republican and he will spend far more than Bush ever did.
Ain’t nobody to the left of Romney. Romney’s even to the left of Kennedy.
I am for the bottom balloters because I think they are better both in terms of positions and November electability. There won’t be 20 debates for Gingrich to demonstrate his deeper grasp than Obama. Their will be two maybe three and they won’t be as cut and dry victorious as folks think. After that their will be a GOP nominee with 3 or 4 hundred million and Obambi with 1 plus billion.
I think we have the American people on our side but if the dems manage to jujitsu the situation as they did in 1996, we are toast.
BTW, I think anyone who siphons votes to a third party should be drawn and quartered. But that’s just me and I know it is their right. It’s just too bad that it will take away my right to an American president. er um... I mean a good president.
Good to see you support Newt. I truly think he’s the only one who can beat Obama and save this country from destruction.
I think Williard will run like McCRap and not fight back
Colorado is very significant.
IT IS A CAUCUS state, right after FLA and ROMNEY crushed the competion there in 08. It is part of his ‘fire wall’. (A fire wall that is burning down.)
Some of us who are supporting NEWT in NH ... we do a re-assessment after. Especially after MITT drops out.
Never a good idea to marry your candidate. A temporary arrangement, a decision to support him for a specific vote, in a specific place, at a specific time.
I agree. And I don’t believe Newt is a RINO, and I don’t believe he is progressive. I would characterize him as
...a practical Conservative. And sad to say, we do have to remember that not everyone in this country is as conservative as we are here at FR. THEY vote, too, unfortunately.
Newt knows what he needs to do to WIN.
I thus far have been highly entertained by his comebacks, especially to Nancy PeLOUSE. Perhaps more in the media will learn to keep their big yaps shut when dealing with Newt.
Newt has been through all of this before. He’s seen our country down and out, and he’s seen it come back. He knows the potential. Yes, the stakes are worse and higher this time around .. .we have an all out muslim marxist in the WH . . . almost makes Carter look like a pussy cat.
But still, I believe Newt is probably among those most hardened from battle that we have. I just hope he holds up under the onslaught.
Perhaps the time is now to get behind the man. Stop tearing him down and support him 100%. He’s going to need it, even as tough and smart as he is.
Really? Do you think Gingrich will seek to assure Americans they have nothing to fear of Obamination II? I find it hard to believe Gingrich is awed by Obama as McCain was.
