...Telling his listeners that the polls indicated MittRomney would likely lose the Michigan primary, the conservative icon said he wouldnt be surprised if Romneys demise gives Gingrich yet another opportunity to be frontrunner. Another great performance by Gingrich in a debate could turn the race around once again, Limbaugh said.
I think there's a possibility of something happening nobody's talking about -- and that's the reemergence of Newt. Keep a sharp eye. Anything's still possible, Limbaugh said.
If Romney has trouble in Michigan... Now, PublicPolicyPolling is a very liberal polling group out of North Carolina. They say that Romney's gaining ground, and he could well be. A slew of negative ads are being run against Santorum, and they work. Negative ads have always been shown to work, and Romney's gaining ground back in Michigan. Of course, the Republican establishment would be turned upside down if he loses in Michigan, because that's his what, second or third home state? And his dad was governor there. ...
If Romney falters in Michigan, the guy to look at as perhaps having a chance to get back in this big time is NewtGingrich, Limbaugh said. Do you realize there hasn't been a debate in a month? There has not been a debate, and look at what impact that could be having on the polls, 'cause there haven't been any primaries, either. But look at the impact no debates are having. So if Romney doesn't do as expected, then of course the Republican Party establishment's gonna panic and think, Oh, my gosh, we need somebody new now, because none of the others are suitable to them. Including Newt. Newt's not suitable to them, either. But the debates are gonna kick back in again once we get close to Michigan and then we've got Super Tuesday.

Newt Gingrich Town Hall At ORU, Tulsa, Oklahoma February 20 2012 -- The FULL HOUR.
As much as I love Newt this simply isn’t going to happen.
If Newt had got the debate in GA instead of Romney and Santorum had backed out of then I’d have given Newt much more of a chance for a come back.
If he does make a come back then the establishment will go full mode again to attack him but just imagine Newt and obama in a debate.
Oh and before we get the usually name calling, mud slinging attacking Newt because the usual suspects think they have to because they like Santorum , well I am pointing out a fact not doing an attack
Gingrich makes me very uneasy. He’s so darn unpredictable.
But he’s the best alternative to Romney, and with the right resources, he’d do serious damage to Obama.
It’s not impossible.
Newt may simply be allowing Romney and Santorum to spend (money and political capital) and then go for the kill.
I’d be surprised at this stage if Newt does not pull a double-reverse Operation Chaos and instruct his Michigan supporters to all go and vote for Santorum.
It would deal a likely fatal blow to The Mittster and keep the race alive for Newt to fight another day.
newt or rick
color me contented periwinkle
I agree. Newt is the only one of the candidates I want to answer the 3 a.m. phone call. That’s becoming more obvious every day.
However, Newt is unpredictable and can just as easily project 10 words (ex: "Ryan's plan is right-wing social engineering") that can get him into trouble.
In today's world of soundbytes anything can happen.
Not gonna happen. Newt rimnded too many people of why they didn’t like him. He’ll never have a comeback.
And I haven’t even read the word “baggage” yet.
rimnded = reminded
Well Adelson is giving Newt another $10 mil and he said he might give him $100 mil if he needs to. Rick is going down the social issues road when most americans are concerned about jobs, jobs jobs. Mitt’s negative ads are already having an impact on Santorum’s momentum. Lets see where he is in two weeeks.
Predicts?? Rush stays safely in the land of “If...could happen...possibility...wouldn’t be surprised....”
Don’t doubt me
But the debates are gonna kick back in again once we get close to Michigan and then we’ve got Super Tuesday.
Apparently Rush doesn’t know that there is one debate scheduled, Feb. 22, in AZ and that is the only one before Super Tuesday. There were a couple of others scheduled in Mar. but both have been cancelled. So don’t depend on debates to resurrect or defeat anyone at this stage.
In 15 days we’ll have a much better handle on who is going to rise if any and who will fall.
Maybe better on judges, but not as good on taxes. Same, same on spending. Not good on government unions. Probably be better friends with Trumpka than he will be with LTC West.
All in all he would only marginally slow this country's march to economic ruin. And that's just not good enough.
I think it’s possible for a Newt comeback, expecially if we look at the existing EC votes. The states Santorum has won don’t ammount to much in EC votes. Newt’s still in it while we see what the South does.
read the other day that the report that Newt called Ryan’s plan, “right-wing social engineering”, was taken out of context, and, in reality, he praised Ryan’s plan.
