Democrates are going to put out there all those who won’t be staying in Washington this next cycle....they have nothing to loose political since they’re out of there.

Therefore anything they might say is rubbish....not to be believed or heeded for more than being the pit bulls for the democrates and Obama.

He maybe be smart, competent, a great debator, but nobody likes him...He is bombastic, arrogant, pompous, conceited, looks down upon people, and all around, not likable.

I don't think this time around it's going to be about POPULARITY. Most people are looking for SOMEONE to actually represent the "will of the people"

It may take someone with the kind of "piss & vinegar" that Newt has to get that done.

I think I can sum it up: Newt has “Little Man Syndrome”.

I’ve never cared much for him, and still don’t. I’ll vote for him, of course, if he gets the nomination.............but I don’t think he’s our best choice.

Obama can’t win. It’s that simple, Obama can’t win this time. Everybody’s seen him and what he can do. Obama can’t win.

Newt has some very strong points. But his Gallup scores among women are worthy of a horror film. He may well be unelectable - even against the Demon-in-Chief. Romney is unelectable for other reasons. We need to unearth some of Obama’s “secret” records soon, to give us an extra boost.

Frankly I don’t care if people like Newt or not...he’s got the goods we need as a nation to get rid of those who are taking it down...and i won’t expect him to be liked while he’s doing so.

I'm with you
Who cares if he's "likeable?"
We need a FIGHTER.

IMHO, I think that 0 would be hard put to accumaulate 300 EV’s if he ran unopposed.

Acorn probably already has it done.

Democrats always say the opposite of what they intend. In other words, the man who almost single-handedly caused the worst financial crisis in history, is scared to death that the GOP will nominate Gingrich.

If that were true, Barney would find some other use for his mouth.

I'll take Noot over Myth, if that's the choice we have.

“Likability” is what got Obama in office. Smooth operator and i don’t want another one. Bachmann took herself down regardless of her conservativism....I don’t want a barbie doll styled made over woman at the helm who makes the same mis-steps she’s been making from the get go. She trashed herself and be better if she backs down now.

We shall soon see. Me thinks that Bawney Fwank and the Democrats are quaking in their boots at the thought of facing Newt. Newt has the ability to focus the light on Obama and they are not comfortable with another person setting the agenda of this election.

Gingrich can win ever debate he enters, but the American people won’t know that unless the media tells them so.

Barney’s only functioning brain exists between his legs. His actual brain (inside his skull) died of loneliness and boredom long ago.

Newt Gingrich at a September 3, 2008 event with Michele Bachmann entitled Governing and Political Change, explains his position on Fannie and Freddie. He also details that he did consulting work for them, and that those who profited from the institutions should have to pay.
Michele Bachmann is standing next to him, and she knows here recent accusations against Gingrich about Fannie/Freddie are false.
