I would LOVE to see Newt disembowel Joe Biden during the debates.

You are making a rash assumption that "Bite-Me" doesn't get replaced by the "smartest woman in the history of the world". Especially when O-Blamer's handlers realize that Joe the Boat Anchor is worth about 10 points in the polls... for the Republicans!

I think most people (though not most people here on FR) will agree that he is a better alternative than four more years of Hussein.

Then "most people" are wrong. Obama thinks highly of his work, though.

Nope, that’s only until the ads start coming ut and the media turns on Romney. It will be a disaster. There are 14 million unemployed people out there, just running a portion of the movie will turn their stomachs and the media will be running it 24/7.

“ROMNEY/HUCKABEE would blow Obama away.”

No but Newt/Huck or Santorum/Huck WOULD.

No, but having been a red stater inside blue state Illinois for 25 years, I get a taste of it. The rest of your observations also make a lot of sense, but that’s about as much as we can say about it here.

I just hope the eventual nominee uses the VP selection as a way to bolster the ticket and one way to do that would be to learn from McCain-Palin and pull in a person who really is a complement, not just a lapdog like Obama did. A bold choice for Romney would be someone like Gingrich, who despite the present enmity would bring innovative ideas and political experience.

Frankly, given Newt’s tendency to, as you say, “do silly things”, the VP slot would be a good fit for him, I think. A place where his ideas could be harnessed without worrying about the consequences of having a President who admittedly does “dumb things” at times.

Rick Santorum is a bleeding heart liberal panty-waist who sucks.

You’ll need a Constitutional Amendment for Haley. I love her, but she is not an NBC. Neither is Jindal, nor Rubio.

She most certainly is. Nikki Haley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa in Bamberg, South Carolina.

And for that matter, Bobby Jindal was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Marco Rubio was born in Miami, Florida.

Natural Born Citizen does not require having US citizens for parents if you are born in the United States.

“I think Bernie needs to lay off the sauce.”

hmmm...another way to say that is: Yes, truth be told I use to smoke pot in my youth...BUT I never smoked THAT much pot!

Gingrich is gone!

I agree with you, but it sure as s##t doesn't mean anything to the other side (or the courts apparently).

I think it would suddenly become VERY important to the rat party and their sycophant media if Nikki Haley were on the ticket. They'd go nuts over the importance of the NBC requirement.

You know what? I didn’t know Huntsman was a Mormon...that changes my original thought.
