Yea. McCain is winning again. Oh... That’s Gingrich. It’s hard to tell the difference.

McCain refused to criticize Obama.

Gingrich doesn’t have that problem.

That’s one difference right there.

And Gingrich has actually balanced a federal budget before and cut entitlement spending.

I wish we could hurry this process a bit so Willard can start his 2016 campaign.

Dude’s been running since 2000. Surely he’s smart enough to get the message after campaigning nearly a dozen years and spending untold millions to poll as low as he does.

That's a VERY big "one" indeed.

As much as I earlier had liked Cain or even Perry, no one has consistently criticized Obama and the rotten media as much as Newt. It would be nice if some of the others would do so.

We’ll see. Gingrich and Romney are virtually identical in my book no as well. Gingrich=Romney=McCain=Dole They are all pretty much the same. I admire musch about every one of them but they are all flawed deeply philosophically.

I’ll take Bachman, Santorum or Perry.

Hell, I would draft Donald Trump in a heart beat now.

We are headed for 1996 all over again right now.

I didn’t forget to comment on Ru Pau, I am only discussing Republicans and those who at least TRY to be conservatives.

Yep Besides that,
They both surrender on CO2.
They both surrender on health-care forced mandates... (sorry McCain is more conservative than Gingrich on this one.)
They both equivocate on immigration enforcement (Yea, I know Perry does too.)
They are both big government republicans.
But besides these things and a long long list of identicals, they are entirely different.

Welcome to 1996.

The "Sky is falling" mentality exhibited by some FReepers is underwhelming.

Sheese, get a grip.
With the speed of the internet things can change in a nanosecond.
I refuse to let the libs tell me who’s worthy. They are playing the fair-weather conservatives like a violin.
With one sound byte or one incident or “crisis” all of the cards in the political deck get shuffled.
Newt has been a “man for all seasons”, I currently like this Newt.
Perry has a good and bad track record.
Romney is the “chosen” one and a New England enigma.
Bachman has passion galore.
Paul has brilliant moments of lucidity.
We’ve got a lot of talent here, but a lot of people have bought into the premise that the diverse candidates are a negative?


Let see what the “American Spring” sprouts and stop calling the election today.

anyone verify this?

In a thumbnail, Congress accepted the committee report, which found that Gingrich used tax exempt contributions for political purposes and then attempted to mislead the Ethics Committee about it. Pelosi sat on the Ethics Committee at the time, so has vivid knowledge of the whole business.

Gingrich, while not exactly my first choice (or my second), is head and shoulders above McCain or Romney.

Probably more conservative than W — certainly more fiscally conservative.

So a marked improvement.

Not seeing it that way..Gingrich is way better thinking on his feet, defending his positions, attacking the other guys weaknesses, and formulating strategy and policy than any of those other lightweights you mentioned. I don’t care much about their answers on immigration or cap and trade or whatever issue, because none of them do what they say anyway. We need someone who can put Obama on the defensive for once...

I too don't understand this thing with Mitt, 23%, running since 2000.

People talk about the ego of such-and-such candidate, but no one comments on the ego Mitt must have in order to think he is going to, much less deserves to win, when he can only get 23% of the polling support, after running FOREVER.

I could never do that. If only 1 in 4 or 5 people wanted to vote for me, I believe I would listen to the will of the people and give it up. But not the Mittster... he's still avoiding interviews, avoiding answering questions, avoiding making any mistakes, and banking on being the last man standing.

I just don't get it.

mcpain thought that since he was the "maverick" the press was his friend, Newt is under no delusion.

Since mcpain lost, and went back to being the thorn in the side of conservatives, the press now treats him as the "elder statesman", but it's only when they want to use him or his fat, dumb daughter.

Blows my mind! Gingrich is far from perfect, but certainly far more conservative than Perry or Romney.

Romeny, we all know what he is. Perry, he supports a dream act in his state and runs high deficits. Gingrich is the last Speaker to balance a Federal budget.

He balanced the budget? thats like so 15 years ago...just today he says

GINGRICH: Well, it depends on what you’re subsidizing. The idea of having economic incentives for manufacturing goes back to Alexander Hamilton’s first report of manufacturing which I believe was 1791. We have always had a bias in favor of investing in the future. We built the transcontinental railroads that way. The Erie Canal was built that way. We’ve always believed that having a strong infrastructure and having a strong energy system are net advantages because they’ve made us richer and more powerful than any country in the world. But what I object to is subsidizing things that don’t work and things that aren’t creating a better future. And the problem with the modern welfare state is it actually encourages people to the wrong behaviors, encourages them not to work, encourages them not to study.

good look with that balanced budget with this version of newt

"Yea. McCain is winning again. Oh... That’s Gingrich. It’s hard to tell the difference."

Let me help you. McCain was the one who served his country honorably in Vietnam, and then turned into an opportunistic sleaze. Gingrich is the one who dated his school teacher while he was her student, and went straight downhill from there.

Right. Newt and Mitt are polar opposites!

Mitt is a pro-abortion, big government progressive.

Newt is a pro-life, budget balancing Reaganite who helped usher in the Republican majority, the Reagan Revolution and the long lasting Reagan economy.

Mitt’s legacy is RomneyCare, taxpayer funded abortion, gay marriage, liberal activist judges, an all but destroyed Republican brand in Massachusetts and a bankrupt state. And he’s proud of it.

I have no problem with Bachmann, Santorum or Perry, other than they can’t seem to get out of the gates or stay long on the track without stumbling and taking hard falls. Wouldn’t trust Trump other than cheer leader.

Unlike McCain, I believe Newt is capable and unafraid to take the fight to the enemy and win! And that’s what we need.

Well, tax incentives are sometimes useful to spur economic development—if not overdone. Would be nice to have a tax problem in manufacturing for a change. That would mean we’re making some headway.

No, You just left out a whole lot of liberal missteps by Gingrich over the last decade. He is to the left of Romney on healthcare and environmental issues. That is a problem in my book. I think he is great on some issues but he is definitely a big government Republican and he will spend far more than Bush ever did.

Well,

I am for the bottom balloters because I think they are better both in terms of positions and November electability. There won’t be 20 debates for Gingrich to demonstrate his deeper grasp than Obama. Their will be two maybe three and they won’t be as cut and dry victorious as folks think. After that their will be a GOP nominee with 3 or 4 hundred million and Obambi with 1 plus billion.

I think we have the American people on our side but if the dems manage to jujitsu the situation as they did in 1996, we are toast.

BTW, I think anyone who siphons votes to a third party should be drawn and quartered. But that’s just me and I know it is their right. It’s just too bad that it will take away my right to an American president. er um... I mean a good president.

North Carolina? When is our primary? How many names were left on the ballot for us to pick from during the last primary? The answer is 2. Alan Keyes got my vote that day. My point is that after Iowa and New Hampshire, this field will be cut down to 3 maybe 4 candidates. North Carolina has no say in how many names are left on our ballot by the time we hold our primary, but Iowa and New Hampshire have almost all the say. At least with NH, this crap has been going on my entire life, and there is no valid reason for it. If it's because they are small states, then let two other small states be first, or let all the small states have their primaries the same day. Iowa and NH are not THE cross section of The Republic.

Some of us who are supporting NEWT in NH ... we do a re-assessment after. Especially after MITT drops out.

Never a good idea to marry your candidate. A temporary arrangement, a decision to support him for a specific vote, in a specific place, at a specific time.

I agree. And I don’t believe Newt is a RINO, and I don’t believe he is progressive. I would characterize him as

...a practical Conservative. And sad to say, we do have to remember that not everyone in this country is as conservative as we are here at FR. THEY vote, too, unfortunately.

Newt knows what he needs to do to WIN.

I thus far have been highly entertained by his comebacks, especially to Nancy PeLOUSE. Perhaps more in the media will learn to keep their big yaps shut when dealing with Newt.

Newt has been through all of this before. He’s seen our country down and out, and he’s seen it come back. He knows the potential. Yes, the stakes are worse and higher this time around .. .we have an all out muslim marxist in the WH . . . almost makes Carter look like a pussy cat.

But still, I believe Newt is probably among those most hardened from battle that we have. I just hope he holds up under the onslaught.

Perhaps the time is now to get behind the man. Stop tearing him down and support him 100%. He’s going to need it, even as tough and smart as he is.
