So, there are others who question Newt's viability. Apparently, Glenn isn't the only one. Even Rush brought attention to Newt's praise of Andy Stern.
Like Herman, perhaps where there's smoke, there may be fire.
Like Herman? Really? All I saw was smoke created quite possibly by the GOP itself.
I don’t think he can either. The media is holding its fire now but will eat his lunch when the time is right. (about the time he makes the traditional move to the center after winning the nomination)
“MF Global can’t lose” - Jon Corzine.
One RomneyBOT backstabber quotes another.
Ziegler is a Romney PIMP. Disgusting.
Here’s the link.
Of course he can’t ...
he’s a moderate, elitist talking like a conservative.
Two years ago he aligned himself with Mitt, Jeb, McCain, Cantor, McConnell, Blunt, Thune, Kyl, Cornyn, Hutchinson, et al, to remake the GOP.
IMHO, Newt will end up endorsing Mitt.
Gingrich Joins Cantors Effort To Remake GOP
Newt Gingrich has joined Eric Cantors new effort to remake the GOP for the future, a Cantor spokesperson confirms.
Speaker Gingrich will be joining the National Council for a New America as one of the members of our national panel of experts, Cantor spokesperson Joe Pounder tells me, confirming a Chris Cillizza item based on anonymous sources.
It is generally recognized that Speaker Gingrich is a man whos putting forth bold ideas in the party, Pounder continues. Its only natural that he would join an organization that seeks to apply conservative principles to everyday challenges. Thats what Speaker Gingrich has been doing for the past couple of years.
Cantors group has taken some hits from Mike Huckabee and other conservatives who argue that the group has de-emphasized social issues in an effort to rebrand the GOP at the expense of social conservatives. Rush Limbaugh slammed the group as a scam.
John ZieglerISAWEENIE.com = read no further.
You know it’s Willard Romney who can’t win. But if he does we’re stuck with an northern liberal RINOfrom Mass, and he’s a Mormon to boot. Doesn’t anyone find that troublesome. I sure do.
Newt can and will win!
Candidates who think there is a center, and "move to it" are actually just getting involved with the "fringe", and that's not enough voters to make a difference.
What they have to do is RETAIN THEIR BASE and seek to DETACH A FACTION OR PART OF A FACTION from the other party.
And Mark leds off his show today repeating if he could vote today he would vote for one of the two conservatives, Bachmann or Santorum.
There we had two of these guys on the ticket, and possibly JFK was the most Conservative one in the crowd. He wanted to cut income taxes!
Of course, we’re supposed to believe Ziegler because he accurately picked the outcome of the 2000, 2004 and 2008 elections. Of course, so did I and millions of others...
Buy EU debt, make a killing. LOL
That election in 1960 is one that I remember quite well. Out of 60 million votes Kennedy won by 100,000. The election was stolen in West Virginia and Chicago. We are not going to get Ron Paul or anyone like him, unfortuneately. And Newt is an intellectual who can win. And he is a convert to catholicism. That’s enough for me. Kennedy was a phoney from the get go. The press hated Nixon because of Alger Hiss. Look it us
If you are so convinced that he can’t win, then why worry about it. He is still useful in the run-up to keep the rest of the field on their toes. What’s wrong with having some competition?
Beck had this guy on gbtv tonight to put this website out for everyone and ensure Newt does not win.
I agree. I think he will kick the “ Magic Negro’s “ a$$!
It is totally ridiculous to see Republicans/Conservatives fighting to tear each other apart in a brawl largely sponsored by the left. Every Republican that has risen in the polls has come under attack. One right after the other they rise in the polls — and then are brought down. This time it’s people on our side who are eating their own. Good lord this is making me sick. Why can’t these idiots see they are playing right into the hands of the opposition? Kill off the best candidates to run against Obummer so we run another Mclame.
Rasmussen just came out with a poll showing Newt down by 10 (49% to 39%) to Obama. Even Ron Paul is down only 8 pts to Obama. He says only Mitt leads Obama but I can not find that poll on the website. I know polls do not really matter this early out but geez! 10 pts! Newt is going to have trouble getting the womens vote.
Per some threads, Gingrich is already losing some ground in Iowa due to the attack ads from his competitors.
Many who jumped on the Gingrich bandwagon had no idea of his history. Many jumped on Gingrich’s bandwagon because he was sort of the last Great White-haired Hope for them.
Many are trying to sell the new, improved, Version 2.0 Gingrich. Many others are not buying it.
Palin can’t win; Cain can’t win; Newt can’t win; Trump can’t win; I guess we should just let Obama stay for another 4 years or until he’s done destroying our country, then I’ll bet even Micheal Savage could win.
You can fool women once.
Adult women are focused on the family budget.
Obama is killing it!
Newt promises to restore the economy.
A GOP generic beats Obama 49-41.
I don't believe 51 % of the voters enjoy S&M.
Let’s look at Gingrich’s record:
Wrote the “Contract With America” and brought the GOP to a majority in the House for the first time in 40 years.
Kept every promise in the “Contract With America”
Only Republican to lead, and win, an effort to cut an entitlement — welfare.
Only Republican to lead, and win, an effort to balance the budget.
Only Republican to lead, and win in the House, term limits.
Only Republican to lead, and win, the Congressional Responsibility Act, which subjected members to the same laws all citizens must adhere.
Boehner tried to topple Gingrich becuase the liberals smeared him with the ethics investigation along with the media.....similar to what they did to Cain.
Sorry, but you can pull out all the Gingrich quotes....I will stick to what the man did while Speaker of the House.....which pissed off most Republicans who wanted more pork (as witnessed by what happened after Gingrich left).
Maybe you don't remember the hell Reagan received, in spades, when he ran. I do remember and it was staggering. It all worked out pretty well for Reagan though. Gingrich is the best communicator of the bunch. If he can remain disciplined and take his message to the people, like Reagan, without relying on the msm, he will do fine.
Polls this far out are absolutely meaningless. Most polls had Carter winning big until the end. I also recall Bob Shrum calling John Kerry "Mr. President" based on exit polling. The campaign is just beginning. Anyone claiming Newt can't win has absolutely no idea what he's talking about.
Zeigler of course is the scumbag who slandered S Palin, why would anyone take anything he says seriously.
Other than to think is Ziegler dislike Gingrich it speaks well of Gingrich.
Those are all rock solid conservative accomplishments that the MSM, mittwits and paultards can't lie about or twist out of context.
The liberal republicans lost the house majority that Gingrich won.
The RINOS are identical to democrats. Same animal, different stripes.
I’m getting awfully tired of people telling me who can or can’t win.
Romney can’t win, because conservatives will not vote for him, period.
Please ignore the hype and piss bucket carriers for Obama.
It’s already begun. Mark Shields on PBS News Hour described Gingrich as “emotionally unstable.” This will be the line of attack. The fact that Gingrich has been married multiple times, twice to mistresses (his current wife was his partner in adultery; great advertisement for the party of family values)suggests someone who has not been trustworthy in one of the most important relationships in life. I can’t imagine why evangelicals would be supporting this guy. To also suggest he is a committed, reliable conservative is ridiculous. He’s as much a progressive as Romney. At least Romney is a solid family man who’s been married to the same woman since high school, has a beautiful family, and hasn’t been pushed out of office because of questionable ethics.
I really don’t think average voters who aren’t particularly partisan will oust the genial, even-tempered (or so he appears) Obama for someone whom the media will portray as too flaky and unpredictable to have his finger on the nuclear button. Ain’t going to happen.
That doesn’t jive with the poll showing Newt beating Obama in all 12 swing states.
These polls jump around like a streetwalker.
And how does Obama feel about Andy Stern? I guess this will be a non-issue in any Obama-Gingrich contest.
