Greta asks him why ask Obama to fire Chu if he is doing Obama's bidding? Newt answers. It is a test to show who Obama is and what he wants.

It’s also a way to force Obama to either show that he’s flexible and willing to change or show that he’s really a committed Marxist at heart.

He'll probably need to drink a few bottles after Super Tuesday.

I thought it was a good interview. He was cheery and positive.....the only thing I have to say is he MUST do something about that double chin. It is so distracting and he makes it worse when he lifts his head and puts it back down to normal. I know a ton of elderly people like Newt and they don’t have that double chin especially as bad as his is.

Yep, that’s always what I look for in a candidate...no double chin./s

That being said, I know you have a point. A lot of voters pick a candidate based on their looks.

I guess I just don’t understand why he didn’t try to lose some weight. I know it is difficult for the elderly to lose weight but he has been campaigning for over six months. It is only his chin that is distracting.

I can deal with double chins, what I can’t deal with are two-faced silver-tongued used car salesmen Romney/Obama.

Maybe, at this stage of his career, he figures that his ideas are more important than his weight. I know I do.

I guess if I wanted to point out physical characteristics that are distracting of the remaining candidates, I could certainly do so. All of them have things that would annoy some people if that is all they are focused on. Their words and ideas supersede their looks..at least in my world.

“difficult for the elderly to lose weight”...that's a tiny bit snarky. Doncha think?

Snarky? Is it not medically proven that the elderly have issues with weight? It certainly does and I have facts on my side.

Newt’s messages/speeches are not getting out to the majority of U.S. voters, and this fact continues to prevent Newt from being the frontrunner, right now! The Left/RINOS/Elitists/Establishment Republicans, combined, continue to succeed in, profoundly, suppressing Newt’s messages/speeches!

Wow, just noticed, Obama does not have a double chin.

What political conclusions can we draw from that?

“he MUST do something about that double chin.”

Compared tp that slimey, black-eyed lizard in the Whitehouse, he looks like Marlon Brando.

lol. That is true. I know I was being sarcastic but damn we have a very immature electorate and they will bring up his physical fitness. God the last thing we need is for Obama to challenge Newt to a run. That happened during the Bush/Kerry campaign where Bush bragged that he ran a mile in a certain time and it was found out that Kerry ran slower and Kerry ended up losing the election. We do not need a situation like that where it is turned on us.

I think if you take a casual look around you would have to agree that a large part of the population...both young and old have weight issues.

The “elderly” part of your post seemed to be somewhat snarky. Elderly is only elderly in comparison to your own age. Heck, when I was 20... 40 was elderly. I have since learned that elderly has a great deal to do with state of mind...and mental agility.

So Newt might be portly, have a double chin and be “elderly”, but he does mental gymnastics and has futuristic ideas that far out pace his opponents.

Sadly, I must agree, the majority will vote based on looks. I fear that if we had a a great looking, young, thin nominee that did nothing but recite Dr. Suess...they could probably get the vote. Case in point..2008. In actuality, we only have one nominee that might draw the “pretty” voters. And that makes me pretty sad. Newt maybe the Rooster Cogburn of this election cycle, and I'll stick wih him. Old and smart sometimes outweighs (no pun intended) the alternative.

Not that it matters, but I use the term elderly like it is discussed in the dictionary. “Most developed world countries have accepted the chronological age of 65 years as a definition of ‘elderly’ or older person,” Newt by definition is elderly....that is a fact not a snark. But in the big scheme of things, it doesn’t matter.
