There is no way I consider mitt intelligent. He can’t even think creatively in his debates - he sounds like a moron with the SOS. He’s more robotic than anything.
I could listen to Newt and learn - with Mitt telling me we need jobs and we have to get this country turned around is really a piss poor candidate - all he has is money behind him.
So drop this ‘very gifted’ jazz if you want to stay credible.
This is a gift, not entirely dependent on intelligence. The ability to debate well is akin to the gift a stand-up comic has, it's a subconscious ability coupled to an outstanding memory.
Newt has it, Clinton also has it. Clinton has photographic memory, I suspect Newt does as well.
