LOL. You are aware that this is not a story about Rick Perry, right?
Florida voters, boycott the Barack Hussein “ Muslim Brotherhood Lover” Obama SOTU address this evening and help us bring Obama to electoral defeat!!! Make his last SOTU speech the worst viewed in the history fo the USA!!!
Holy Cow! That’s a crowd!
Looks like at VERY BIG Tea Party. Mittens must be dying with envy.
Wait until Nascar season opens Daytona !!
How many of the candidates will be there?
I’d like to see Todd Palin as Grand Marshal. He could bring his wife with and let her drive the pace car. :-)
No, she’s one of us now. Kind of like the prodigal son, she’s our prodigal daughter.
Callista needs to soften her look. Otherwise, go Newt, go!
I attended this today. It was a great crowd.
I haven’t seen crouds like that since Palin!
Welcome aboard. WE need you. Rick will get a place to serve.
For your lists.
Republican presidential candidate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich arrives at the Tick Tock Restaurant, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012, in St. Petersburg, Fla.
I forgot about that. This will be the last time I will have to ignore this speech. I generally watch them, but I'm proud to say I didn't watch one given by Obummer. I am sure tonight's will be a doozy laden with class warfare and Socialism.
She needs to get rid of the Aqua Net and she will be fine.
Give us a report!;-)
"This is the third year of his presidency. He needs to get over it," Gingrich said.
I can't watch the state of the union because I break out in hives when I see or hear the halfrican, mooselimb, communist prick that lives in the white hut, but I'm sure Newt is right.
Personally I believe that Newt is the best that the GOP can do. So if he is selected by the GOP as their guy I will vote for him. I don’t know if the ‘Atlantic’ is for Romney. I don’t read this mag and I have no idea who Molly Ball is.
Gingrich’s Electability Argument Doesn’t Make Much Sense
By Molly Ball
Molly Ball - Molly Ball is a staff writer covering national politics at The Atlantic.
Many voters seem to be persuaded that the resurgent GOP candidate would be a better nominee than Mitt Romney, but experts aren’t so sure.
Lately, Newt Gingrich devotes a substantial portion of his stump speech to arguing that he would be the best general-election candidate to beat President Obama among the GOP contenders. Voters appear to be buying it: in Saturday’s South Carolina primary, Gingrich won a staggering 51 percent of voters who told exit pollsters their top priority was being able to beat Obama — and that was the largest group of voters, at 45 percent.
What’s Gingrich’s argument? It has a few prongs. First, he says he would overpower Obama in debates, humiliating him and exposing him as a fraud. Second, he says his conservative views would provide voters with a strong contrast with the incumbent, giving those dissatisfied with Obama a true alternative rather than a near-equivalent, as he paints Romney. Finally, Gingrich argues his big ideas and sweeping oratory would allow him to make inroads with non-traditional Republican voters such as minorities and the poor.
The persuasiveness of these arguments is largely emotional, but some of it can be evaluated. We bounced it off a couple of political scientists — exactly the sort of know-it-all, America-destroying elites Gingrich has so much contempt for.
Tell us more!
Tell us more about the event.
What time does the Cretin in Chief’s STHU Show start?
It may be a wee bit too early, but “hot damn”, I am getting excited!!
CW, it is with great sincerity that I say, “welcome aboard”.
GO NEWT GO........
WOW and to think all I have got thus far is a phone call once but a bunch of crap of Romney.
He is coming up to near me soon and I would love to get into the debate in Jacksonville, any ideas how does one get in, do we need an invitation
Please, please, Callista, please soften your look. Surely there is someone who can tell her. Newts going to need all the help he can get. A step ford looking wife will only play on SNL. She needs to look natural.
Not a Ron Paul sign in sight!
No photo ops for Romney?
Evidently he was trying to negotiate an endorsement for 36k and promise that he would not sing happy birthday to the endorser.
Like that worked in South Carolina.
I delightfully don’t know. I am sure I will get a recap of it here late tonight. There has to be a rerun of “My Mother the Car” or some couponing reality show somewhere on cable to keep me occupied through prime time.
Political scientists don’t make much sense. Didn’t they tell us Mitt was inevitable ten days ago? Didn’t they tell us Newt was done?
Go to Newt’s website their is a place to contact them....Ask if you need tickets etc.
When I met her on September 12, in Tampa, she told me she liked my hair. I told her, “flat iron.” Let the wind blow through it. It’s not a bad style.
Yes she was and is a die hard Perry supporter, but just as Mr. Perry did the right thing for our country, so is she...... You do support Newt don’t you Mrs. Wife?
Brian “the politically correct wimp” France will have to query the polls first, see which way the wind bloweth.
Danica in the front row, could be fun.
We might even get the Nuge to do the Anthem!
*snort* be nice now.
4000. Almost as good as Sarah Palin.
We are NOT watching the Marxist tonight either.
Time is too value and precious!
I’m not watching Obama’s SOTU, but then I haven’t watched a SOTU since 2008. I just follow FR commmentary. It’s a lot more honest...and fun!
I’m with you.
I said when he was elected I’d never, ever, ever watch him on tv or listen to him on the radio under any circumstances. I’m proud to say I have my remote within a foot of me. whenever the halfrican comes on I change the channel, post haste.
God Bless You!
Is it true that Newt said that he helped create 27 million jobs as the media is reporting ?
NCIS then bed if necessary for me. I can’t watch the purple lipped @$$H*!e.
Come on. After 4 Perry posts an hour for the past 6 months, someone had to poke a little fun on the inaugural “non Perry” post.
I’m with you it is sad for me to say -because I have such reverence for our customs and the Presidency- I cannot stomach watching the President, I will watch something on the Food channel or something.
“This is the third year of his presidency. He needs to get over it,” Gingrich said.
Ummm, I’m not too bright but 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 makes it the 4th year of his Presidency.
