CORRECTION: First exit polls in

66% of ALL VOTERS support the tea party.
Only 8% oppose.

Only 2% describe themselves as “liberal”

53% men- 47% women

BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS!!! GOD BLESS YOU, YOUR SON AND NEWT & CALLISTA GINGRICH!!

My photos were taken by the newspaper and the reporter never followed through with his promised to email the copies to me! I only have the throw-away camera still photos which I can’t post online, but they’re treasures!

BTW, somebody I know who lives in Charleston told me that one of the roadblocks to the Port of Charleston/Navy Yard project in Charleston was Gov. Haley, who directed all the money to a different project because she had gotten a pay-off in the form of heavy campaign donations from the developers of that project. Naturally, Haley endorsed Romney. She apparently goes to the highest bidder.

Great post.....

AND I loved the last line.

“Like Palin, he refuses to let them frame the debate and when they attack, he punches them back so hard they see stars”

At one point he was asked by some gay guy what he would do to appeal to gay Americans. Newt essentially said that those who care about the economy and national security should vote for him. Anybody who only cared about Gay Marriage should vote for Obama.

Wow, how refreshing is that? Thanks, papabear.

I second this, please. Lets stick to the primary discussion of South Carolina, rather than attacking Santorum supporters.

Why must you insist upon being so intellectually dishonest in post after post? The complaint preceding your post had to do with a religious battle hijacking this thread. It had nothing whatsoever to do with "attacking Santorum supporters."

Wave your pom poms for Ricky if you must, but try to stay honest, would you?

That’s a very interesting analysis of Newt’s possible motivations. As long as his personal goals continue to align with what’s best for the country, I’ll support him.

Satin Doll gave more information on another thread. As I had suspected the relationship started when Newt was just sixteen. In some state she would be in jail. Newt married her when she got pregnant....
Any thing to add SD.?

Look up second wife’s FBI file. The only reason she wasn’t charged appears to be because of her husband’s position. File said she had “mental issues” Hmmmm Did he stay with her so his insurance would pay for her treatment?

It was about this time that he too got some help IIRC.

I can’t even imagine what will happen if Obama is reelected. I thought his stunt with telling religious organizations yesterday that they had to provide services in their mandated insurance programs that violate their religious teachings shows that he’s pretty confident that he’ll be reelected and is a signal to his Marxist supporters that the gloves will be off when that happens.

The only knock on Newt is that he sometimes TOOK positions that varied from conservative orthodoxy (Individual mandate; Scozzafava; global warming, etc). Part of the reason for this is that he is a professor. Professors come out of the academy where ideas are freely floated. Sometimes a bad one is expressed.

The point is this: When Gingrich was in power, he overthrew the Establishment and GOVERNED as a conservative across the board. As the saying goes, watch what he did, not (so much) what he said.

Romney is Establishment to the core and he governed as a doctrinaire leftist. In the unlikely event he won in November, he wouldn’t be two millimeters better than Obama and his tenure would give way to a Dem congress and a Dem President that would finish the job Obama started.

I hope Newt pulverizes the greasy flipflopper tonight.

They’ve been doing this all day. Analysis on FNC = strategiziing how Romney wins the nomination. Now they are interviewing candidate’s supporters. They only managed to find one for Newt but 4 for Romney. One woman said she likes the way Romney has embraced Reagan!

Me too...and knocks that odious wooden smirk off his faux-looking face.

Also, I agree with your analysis of the Gingrich positions that people don't like...sometimes a bad idea is expressed, sometimes there's an endgame that never happens, and he was also not in a position of power or influence in any way at the time. But he has shown a willingness to analyze and re-analyze things before he acts, and his record is fantastic.

But frankly, I prefer it like this. I want every voter to have their opportunity to cast their vote the way they want to, and not be discouraged by anything the media is reporting.

Imagine if the original results of Iowa had held, with Romney beating Santorum by just 8 votes. And imagine if there had been 42 people sitting at work listening to the media saying how Romney had it locked up, so they stayed home. If they had not stayed home, then Santorum would have won by 34 votes.

Oh wait, he did!!! Yay!!!

So everyone, go vote, always! Ignore the lamestream media reporting on election day. They have an agenda to promote, and it ain't ours!

If only it was prohibited to report results before the polls closed. That would be nice. :-)
