GOP candidate addresses future

Sadly, I don’t think he has a chance.
I’d love to be proved wrong. It’s killin’ me to know we
have the wishy-washy flip-flopper Myth still standing!
In the end, I'm gonna be faced with obama or Romney, and with that as a choice, it has to be
That would just turn Newt into a laughing stock, so no, ofcourse he isn't going to do that.
No one want's to touch that issue however...
Yes, again, because they no one wants to be known as a fringe conspiracy theorist joke. Amazing that all these people come to the same conclusion isn't it?
The only silver lining I can find in a Mitt nomination is that if he is as malleable as he appears to be on the campaign trail, we ought to be able to keep him NUDGED in our direction with constant pressure. (think “what we did to Bush on immigration and the Harriet Miers nomination”)
Not that I’m up for four years of that. Dealing with Obama already has me exhausted.
I will vote for him in the Pa. primary, even if not running. It may be my last time as a Republican. I know we have closed primaries here but I’m sick and tired of the Pa. GOP telling me who to vote for. They did it with Pat Toomey and they are doing it again with Welch over Rohrer. And the national level sucks even more. I’m disgusted and fed up.

I don’t like Newt, but dislike him less than Mitt.
Newt’s the only one who’s had and used the balls to talk down to Hussein, and the Hussein Heads and their messiah NEED that.
“Amazing that all these people come to the same conclusion isn’t it?”
The knee-jerk defense of Hussein seems good enough for you....
What else are you willing to believe that Hussein and ABCCBSCNNNBCFOX/AP tell you?
Good luck doing that when the Democrats take over Congress in 2014 and do all the nudging themselves. Great set-up for a repeat of 2008 in 2016, when Obama can run again and institute single payer socialized health care, which could not be overturned by any Supreme Court according to Mark Levin.
And yet Newt doesn't take up the birther cause. Why? You are so convinced this is a great issue, yet no serious politician will touch it.
Could it be you are just completely blind on this particularly issue and are incapable of seeing what a national joke it makes anyone touching it? I mean, if it were such a wonderful cause to spearhead, you'd think one of our presidential candidates (perhaps someone trailing badly in the polls like say Newt) would grab hold of it right? Yet, they avoid it like the plague.
Sadly, it has been since Florida.
I had sort of hoped he'd be rogue enough to go it as an alternative candidate, but he'd need a major snub now to back out of his concession statements to Romney the last few days.
A Newt fan here, but this isn’t breaking news.
I'm voting my beliefs and convictions this time and let the chips fall where they may.
Newt isn't perfect. OMG! He sat on a couch with Pelousy for a picture!
But, he didn't give us Romneycare or more liberal judges, etc.
Instead, he was a part of the conservative restoration, the republicans retaking the majority in Congress and the Reagan revolution that brought us out of the Misery index and into decades of growth and prosperity.
I want that again!!!
When I listen to him and the others, it's obvious that Newt, not the others, could lead us to that place again and beyond.
You say you want to beat obama?
No one fights back against obama and the progressives like Newt! Just a soundbite from Newt is all it takes to make them dance.
Newt in 2012!
Leaving aside whether it is true or not, the problem with the birther thing is that it only has traction with people who were not going to vote for Obama anyway.
That’s why it is a politically worthless issue.
But we are talking Republican primaries here. A pool of voters who are not going to vote for Hussein. Yet the birther stuff is still radioactive and no presidential candidate will touch it - not even ones that desperately need(ed) a boost.
Arpaio is about as far from fringe as one gets in law enforcement and what he found simply confirms what most suspect.
And that suspicion has been long festering. We see and smell the smoke. We see who is denying what we see and smell and we wonder why.
Our collective hunger for the truth needs to be satisfied.
The more I learn, the more I realize this is one of the most important stories in my lifetime. We are going to get behind those who expose and fight what has been done unto us.
Those on the wrong side of this are going to be torn apart by the backlash once that realization kicks in. Just saying...
The Republican nominee (probably Romney) should post an anticipated administration:
Vice President: Santorum
Secretary of State: Newton Leroy “Newt” Gingrich
Attorney General: Ron Paul
Head of the FBI: Rudolph William Louis “Rudy” Giuliani
Then put 90% of the current regime IN JAIL ! ! ! ! !
“A Newt fan here, but this isnt breaking news.”
Its sorta like watching corn grow. Except the outcome is more tragic.
I know the feeling, Sue. Whether at the state or federal level, the establishment should button its yap and let people judge the candidates for themselves.
Of course, in an ideal world, neither endorsements nor party affiliation would mean a whit because voters would know that they’re not reliable indicators of a candidate’s worth. An uninformed, easily swayed electorate is the consequence of our party-line mentality.
Can you imagine what would happen if we banned party affiliation from ballots? People might *gasp* actually have to think about who they’re voting for.
No No Newt has a plan,Just wait till we get to california,,,
I hate to be the one to break it to you, but those days are long gone. The living proof of that is John Boehner and most of the House freshmen.
Once Mitt wins the nomination, IF he wins, we will be under the thumb of the GOP-e. If he were to win the Presidency, our Masters will be the GOP-e. We still can defeat them if we refuse to accept their candidate..
We're in a war, and our enemy is the GOP-e as much as anyone else. Step 1: defeat Romney. Step 2: defeat Boehner AND Cantor.
LOL...what are you gonna do with the remaining 10%?
Can I recommend public flogging?
I think Mittens Thurston Howell Romney is the worst possible choice
I don’t think there will be any backlash, when Romney can’t even be defeated. There will be nothing but wimpering from now to the convention and beyond.
Don’t plan on any of this. Once the GOP-e’s candidate wins, they will call the shots.
“Amazing that all these people come to the same conclusion isn’t it”
Truth is not determined by the direction the crowd is going. Even less by what politicians say.
Despite my reservations about him from representing me in Georgia all those years, I voted for him here in Georgia to try and turn the tide against him.
Newt isn’t going to win this by any stretch of the imagination. He is dealing with a several million dollar campaign debt right now and will be lucky to recover from that.
Despite that, it is worth his holding on to keep Mitt on the right side as long as he can - Santorum, too.
I think what Newt needs to be working on is debt clearance and the penultimate speech at the GOP convention nominating the winner. It is imperative that we as conservatives have our last clear conservative voice at the convention prior to the ultimate winner’s acceptance speech...I don’t like either of the two possibles, but either is preferable to Tyrant Obama.
America’s too “PC” for that now a days. I for one would love it.
If Santorum can't win PA by huge majority, he's finished. Since he's still so popular with Republicans in PA, I'm sure he'll easily match Romney's 70%+ in MA.
Then again, that is exactly what every conspiracy theorist says. Truthers say precisely the same thing.
Santorum is a lost cause- and Willard, the likely nominee, guarantees the re-election of obama.
Newt was the smartest and most inspiring candidate in the race. IMO the best one since Reagan, but sad to say he has too much baggage.
Jesus said something like that, too. Broad is the way of destruction, path to life is narrow, something like that. Point is, I don’t remember the last time I heard an argument as lame as yours on FR. If birthers were all saying the Sun rises in the east, would that make it any less true?
As for certain truths being believed by only a few at the beginning, that’s the normal pattern in science and other disciplines. Normally, though, when no one has a stake in this “new truth,” it will gradually gain acceptance as more become aware of evidence. However, where structures of power depend on falsehoods, the truth will be fought tooth and nail, and many who would otherwise believe are intimidated into a forced uncertainty. Especially politicians, pragmatic creatures that they are.
Most people who reject the eligibility problem as too fringe to even consider, have, unsurprisingly, not considered it, I.e., have not thought about it to any depth or considered any evidence. The herd instinct is strong, but it fails to prove anything, except for the analytical limitations of the herd. Can you let some of us rise above being lemmings? Thank you.
As predicted Santo is getting out. At least Newt is still in it to TAMPA and has a chance. If you quit there is no chance. GO NEWT!!!
Don’t let yourself be led around like a poodle on a leash.
Listen carefully—truth is not to be found in the rantings of the mob.
Well look at all of the Newt is staying in and taking it to Tampa breaking news posts there are now - only a couple hours later. I was ahead of the curve.
Just saying as before the Republican nominee (probably Romney) should post an anticipated administration:
Vice President: Take your pick. Herman Cain is one. Bachman or Palin would be too awsome.
Secretary of State: Newton Leroy Newt Gingrich Just imagine Newt talking to the iranaianis
Attorney General: Ron Paul OMG!!!! Let him walk HIS talk...
Head of the FBI: Rudolph William Louis Rudy Giuliani Nothing to add to that. He is one-of-a-kind
Then put 90% of the current regime IN JAIL ! ! ! ! !
