Could Newt reverse himself on global warming based on recent scandals discrediting the science? Has he? Or is he in all the way?

It is a very effective ad. I don’t have a problem voting for him, but how does he overcome his baggage? The only way I see that happening is if we repeatedly pull out the: “We already have a President that has used and sold drugs by his own admission.” But then we get into moral relativism and I’m not sure it would work.

Riiight, the Republic isn’t as important as playing the meida’s set-up game of ‘purity for you fool conservatives’. Frankly, if that’s all that you can see as a negative for Newt Gingrich, then you need to trun off your TV and stop letting the enemedia stroke your brain.

I keep thinking that without Sarah, we are going to see something very surprising come out of the Iowa Caucus.

Could Newt be the one, Cain 2nd, Romney 3rd?

If the US were Europe, he’d be our nominee already.

But with his bouncing on the Pelosi couch, etc., it’s going to take still more disillusionment with the rest of our options for enough people to take him seriously.

The rest of the field is incredibly weak—and so I think he may get that chance.

Newt Now... he is the one we need, for our time, for the survival of our country, for our children’s future and we need him right now.

We can’t afford another apprentice, we can’t afford another Flim-Flam Man, backpedaling flip flopper. We need a strong, intelligent and decisive leader—a hard charging conservative..... one that can eat Obama alive.

We need New and we need him now.

Newt 2012.

Now, the ad that will put him atop the field would be one which explained why he was duped into supporting the global warming hype. THAT is the only question I have for Newt. If he answers that satisfactorily, he is my choice for the next president.

When this campaign started a few months ago, I was deeply opposed to Newt, mainly because of his time on the Pelosi couch.

Through the debates my respect for him as grown tremendously, to the point where I’m ready to support him, ready to send him money.

But first, he’s GOT to repudiate his time on the Pelosi couch.

Otherwise, I’m going to have to go with Cain, despite my doubts about him.

Hillary Clinton-Hillarycare

As Gingrich, who backed the decision of local Republican leaders to nominate Scozzafava, explained:

“I think we are going to get into a very difficult environment around the country if suddenly conservative leaders decide they are going to anoint people without regard to local primaries and local choices.”

Newt is the brightest, most knowledgeable and most able of all the current crop of Republican candidates. I am trying to come to terms with his considerable “baggage.” If Bachman, Santorum, Huntsman and Perry drop out that would allow more focus on Newt’s ability, thus giving him a chance. Toe to toe Newt would eat Romney and Cain alive.

I've never disliked Newt, and certainly wouldn't condemn a man to never again (born again Christians are SOOO aware of God's Grace .. )

So I'd like to know why people are so hell bent to keep Gingrich from serving again, especially as presidentr.

IMO, he's the brightest and calmest voice I've seen/heard.

Here’s just one of the reasons Gingrich turns my stomach: He’s a slimy hypocrite who makes John Edwards look like “Husband of the Millennium.”

Gingrich served divorce papers to his wife #1, the former Jackie Battley, while she was literally hooked to an IV getting chemotherapy at a cancer hospital.

Studmuffin Gingrich had found a mistress, Marianne Ginther, who became wife #2. If that wasn’t bad enough, while Jackie was away battling cancer, he brought Marianne to the home he shared with Jackie and their two daughters and had frequent sexual relations with her in their marital bed.

To add insult to injury, Gingrich savagely fought Jackie, to punish her for not signing the divorce papers while she was hooked up to the chemo IV. Jackie had to take him to court to get him to contribute toward bills because utilities were about to be cut off at the family home. She had to ask the State of Georgia for help with utilities and housing while receiving cancer therapy!

Just so happens that Gingrich’s adulterous and cunning affair took place while he was trying to have Bill Clinton impeached for trysting with Monica Lewinsky.

Then dog-in-heat Gingrich cheated on his mistress #1/wife #2, Marianne, with Callista Bisek, mistress #2/wife #3, a House of Representatives staffer, who is 23 years his junior.

He left Marianne after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and while she was visiting her mother.

Like his first sneaky affair, Gingrich had sexual relations with mistress #2/wife #3, Callista, his current wife, in the marital bed he shared with Marianne.

Why did Gingrich dump Marianne? He told her he wanted a “Jaguar,” and she was just a “Chevrolet.”

Now Gingrich and Callista host religious movies, which they sell on their web site.

Gingrich is a sleazy, anti-family, anti-woman politician, utterly lacking in personal morality, capable of making outrageous statements and committing acts of hypocrisy. In addition, no amount of religious documentaries or quick talking lines will change that.

Go ahead, GOP, run him for President. Other than (possibly) his current wife, there isn’t a woman in America who would vote for him. And few men.

Huh?

Here’s another little link for you.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/05/19/us-usa-campaign-gingrich-idUSTRE74C3UV20110519

(Reuters) - Newt Gingrich, whose campaign for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination has gotten off to a rocky start, risked fresh controversy on Thursday by suggesting that some illegal immigrants living in the United States “may have earned the right to become legal.”

The former House Speaker said that after the inaugural address, there’s a break before the traditional lunch — an opportunity for a newly-elected president to get right to work.

“Walk into a room, have all the documents already prepared, already on the Internet, already reviewed by the American people, already written by people who were in the Bush and Reagan White Houses, so they’re all technically correct,” he told the audience. “And just sign as fast as you can.”

Gingrich called for abolishing the Ninth Circuit Court, which he sees as part of an activist judiciary, abolishing all “czars” created by the Obama administration and ensuring no American money pays for abortion (the Constitution specifically gives Congress the power to “ordain and establish” lower courts).

Great ad!
Given the floundering of the other candidates it’s time to ask, “Why not Newt?”
Can you answer without name calling?
Perry has shown he can’t stand up.
50% of FR can’t stand Romney.
Cain can’t effectively explain 999 and isn’t sure he’s pro-life.....

“I agree we cannot afford another apprentice, and that is one of many reason I will be voting for Newt”

Not thinking your or anyone else will get the opportunity to vote for anyone but Mitt Romney. The RNC called me this morning for a donation directed at educating the public on Obama. I told the spokesperson that when I hear the candidates discuss the real issues in this country then I will be ready to send some money. I was told that they are waiting to address these issues after the candidate has been selected. I said, you mean after the media is finished shoving Mitt Romney down our throats, just like they did John McCain. I further said, Newt Gingrich is the only expericened, ready to lead candidate on the stage and then she said, “it is an electibility issue with Newt.” So basically what they want to do is tell us who the pretty, popular guy running for President of the Studend Council is and forget the nerds who really know their stuff. No thanks anymore.

What I’d like to knos is how a man that informed and that intelligent could ever give an interview like this one:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/hotpolitics/interviews/gingrich.html

He endorses cap-and-tax twice - now he recanted, but if he was this wrong on this issue before, then he could be that wrong again.

That issue is easily addressed.
Sit Newt down with “the smart guys” and explain how the science really works.
That should make it clear that the AGW “solutions” are an economic disaster.
Eagerness to “bridge the divide” can’t be based on BS “science”.
Compromise can only be effective if it’s based on reality.
Newt is teachable...at least on this subject.

Gingrich is a fantastic debater, a politician experienced in Washington’s ways, articulate, smart and has a great platform. I’d jump on board the Newt Wagon if I thought the man had any type of moral core. He was not a greatly effective Speaker of the House, he quit immediately after winning reelection which shows me he forgot how he got there and what his job was. He is a globalist as shown by his championing of NAFTA, WTO and membership in CFR. In short, I don’t trust the new Newt any more than I trust the new Mitt.

I’m talking about the cheating thing - it was years ago but if I remember correctly he was also cheating on his wife at the same time Bill & Monica were doing their thing. I think Democrats will use that to try to drive a wedge between Republicans who don’t care and those who really do care about it.

The global warming thing doesn’t bother me - everyone makes mistakes and I bought it at first too. We are taught to trust our scientists, not to think of them as lying bastards fighting for the most grant money.
