What is it about this primary season that causes Republicans to go around the bend? The current beneficiary of the anyone but Romney mania is Newt Gingrich, who may actually win the South Carolina primary tomorrow. I find that astonishing. Gingrich has been mostly out of the public view since he retired from Congress 13 years ago. The most surprising feature of this endlessly surprising political year is that, at age 68, Gingrich has made a comeback.
It is hard to make clear-cut statements about the mercurial and often contradictory Gingrich, but one thing we can say with absolute certainty: he will never be President of the United States. Put aside the fact that he lasted only four years as Speaker of the House before resigning in disgrace, leaving Congress with an approval rating around 15%. Forget that he was the father of the earmark. Never mind his notorious lack of self-control and his attacks on free enterprise. Those are all worthy topics for another day, but for the moment lets just focus on the allegations by Newts second ex-wife that hit the press this week. Apart from all the other good reasons why Gingrich will never be President, Marianne Gingrichs sensational allegations snuffed out any possible hope that Newt can beat Barack Obama in 2012.

What was your previous screen name?
Oh, that's right, you can't answer.....
It is especially troubling because the same people on here attacking Romney all seem to be giving the Newtster a complete past on his past transgressions.

Not that you can answer, but Newt is a Christian, Romney isn’t. Morality means nothing if it is in service to Satan.
You’re welcome, dear.
Good form, great flame, and thorough destruction! I give you a +10!
I was more commenting on the original post than yours. Your post reflects reality—take the best of limited options, rather than pine for Christ Himself to descend into the primaries (though, given how this country is now, He’d be unelectable anyway).
“...rather than pine for Christ Himself to descend into the primaries (though, given how this country is now, Hed be unelectable anyway).”
Ha, well, Christ wasn’t electable in his day, either, even when up against Barack Hussein Barabbas.
Times have changed.....
I was responding to the subject at the last line previous post at #62, I wasn’t talking about Newt
If Reagan ran in this day and age, can you imagine the Hollywood starlets that would be coming out of the woodwork to tell stories about him? Not to mention directors, union thugs and others that he worked against. Even though the 80s were rough, they stayed away from that. I would not be surprised if Reagan had affairs during his first marriage and would not be shocked if he was less than saintly at times in his life. So what? There are things that ought to be off limits, or used to be. We don't care what Newt's ex has to say about him, we know she is not going to be a fan, and it appears that she is a little bit unbalanced. Now tell me what Newt will do in office, who his appointments will be and whether he will start a rollback of progressivism, or continue it. That is the decision we are faced with, for Mitt and Obama are both progressives, the only distinction is in the implementation.
As to the rest, Nikki Haley got $35,000 for her endorsement of Mittwit. Chris Christie is a northeastern establishment type who excites some conservatives with his rough mouth. Rick Lazio was a singularly ineffective candidate against Her Hillariness and not terribly cutting edge. McCotter and Thune are grave disappointments and have disqualified their futures by endorsing Romney. McCotter could have taken on Stabenow and did some good but, nooooo, he has to take the safe route and back Mittwit. Follow the money trail in both cases. Liddy Dole's husband was an embarrassment and she is worse. She needed to be forced from the Senate for the good of North Carolina and the nation. Dennis Hastert, who represented the district just south of my own, is a whore, pure and simple. He has tried unsuccessfully to put his son in his old seat but the scandals around Hastert's real estate deals have fatally hindered that effort.
So I am not impressed with the list other than Bolton. If John asked me personally, I would not vote for Romney, dead or alive, even if he were the GOP nominee.
Imagine that Al Qaeda were an enemy of Obozo, would that make Al Qaeda your friends??? Hillary? David Duke? Etc.
#3: Saul Alinsky or Monica Lewinsky???
In a PR contest between Newt and Marianne, I'm betting on Newt. It will be no contest. Note tonight's South Carolina results. She had an effect on the results and he skyrocketed in the polls. Thank you, Marianne! Your fifteen minutes are up!
Newt can certainly articulate conservative values clearly and unapologetically and he knows how to take names. See tonight's South Carolina results.
Next, if a nominee should die or resign, there is always a committee on vacancies empowered by the convention to choose a replacement. Not a perfect idea but there are no realistic alternatives.
If Newt lives another 70 years and keeps on bashing the lamestream media, it will NEVER get old nor begin to even things up for their partisan behavior for Marxism and social revolution.
If Obama will never agree to debate. nationally televise and youtube a comedy series at his expense of Newt debating Obama's lying news clips with Comrade O's empty chair in front with his worst picture propped up thereon. Produce it well enough and Comrade O will debate soon enough.
Your right, I wasn’t hearing it correctly and thought I could spell, thanks for whispering it in my ear and not telling the du
Ah sorry for misunderstanding:(
If she believed it be true, but it was false, then she would not be a liar, n'est-ce pas?
He should have said something along the lines of “I realize I hurt someone who loved me and I regret it.” He is only in it for his own selfish ends
