Sorry, but I am not buying this, and I cannot understand why Romney is still at 30%-what is the matter with these people?

Unless someone drops out like Perry or Santorum, Newt is going to come in second, and the establishment is going to quickly say the race is over, lets unite!

Lie to pollsters. Make their resuls unreliable, so politicians will have to really say what they think, blind.

“Rick Santorum, who was running second two weeks ago, has now dropped to 15%.”

He’s not dropped. He was at 16 before. Do I need to pull up the earlier poll?

Santorum and Perry need to get out of the way.

If the other Newt supporters were like you I could see myself doing the same. I wish they all were rather then calling Santorum supporters ‘idiots’, etc.

FYI, to Newt fans. The race card is being used against Newt BIG TIME.

This is a great counter response.

Romney has to man up.

And do what? Stick up for his big government, liberal record?

Cheer leading for Mutt will get you banned from FR. You ought to know that by now.

heard Rush talking about a massive scorched earth ad that Romney is running against Newt. Romney is using Jim (the loser) Talent to trash Newt as Speaker of the House. Trying to insinutate that Newt has a tendancy to go off the deep end and Rush stated that it is having an affect on the voters.

Hannity played it on his show, and it is a scorched-earth ad. Talent claims that he and other House members asked Gingrich to leave the Speakership, and that he was working against his own party. It was a very vicious ad.

Newt again looks like the one who can stop Romney.

If that’s what you want SC, vote for Newt on Saturday.

I’m in Upstate SC. The last two days I am hearing that this thing is going to break for Newt. I work with the head of his campaign here in the Upstate. She was so excited today. She is very connected with top GOP leaders in SC. They are saying that he has a very good chance of beating Romney. I have convienced many ppl in the last 24 hrs to vote for Newt instead of Santorum or Paul. Most of them are saying that they have changed their mind due to his showing in the debate. And the Paul supporters are realizing he does not have a chance to win. I think it his to lose. And I will predict right now that he beats Romney on Sat.

I don’t think he’s defending Romney nearly so much as attacking the Dems line of attack. They could say similar things about the financial dealings of all the candidates, and Rush would stand up for them, too, like he always does when the dems go after capitalism. (Or, when he thinks they’re going after capitalism.)

I think Rush is being pragmatic, and sticking to the fight all things democratic meme.

“I think Rush is bipolar. One week he’s for Newt, slamming the liberal Romney. He said two weeks ago Newt was right to go after Bain because of the way Romney went after Newt in Iowa. Now Rush sees that Gingrich just might come out on top in this race and all the sudden he praises Romney. The man needs to get off the oxyconden. He changes his mind more than a woman.”

Ever since Tim Tebow put a smackdown on the Steelers, he’s been off his game.

I also orderd a Newt mug and my wife took it away from me and took it to work where it would get exposure. I also ordered bumper stickers and push cards with his new “Contract with America” to give away. I think I’ll order another mug.

Gingrich's quick analysis of opposing ideas,.. combined with an ability to put them in historical context,... didn't just come about by osmosis. They came about through a lifelong study of history....

In recent decades, Ronald Reagan is the only American president who was so familiar with our founding ideas that he could weave them into discussions on "issues" of the day; thereby giving clarity to threats to liberty.

The goal of the primaries is to determine a candidate who can bring such clarity to the ideas of conservatism that Obama's counterfeit ideas will be defeated"

Newt's the only one who has that ability...only one!

Go Newt Go!!!!! That's exactly right...tweaked a bit....
