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. :-)

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.

Gingrich also predicted that Obama during his State of the Union address Tuesday night would again blame former president George W. Bush for the nation's economic troubles.

"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.

GO NEWT.

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.

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.

“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.
