I had just graduated from college and almost voted for him (dumbass that I was), but when I stepped into the booth I voted for Reagan.

Huh? I live in FL and we have already heard that Jeb Bush was endorsing Romney. Maybe he hadn’t made it official yet and is now backing off? Or maybe this was a Romney “leak” to make himself look inevitable?

And as far as America’s domestic enemies (read:news media) no one skewers and cows them better than Gingrich. Like Palin, he refuses to let them frame the debate and when they attack, he punches them back so hard they see stars
Heck, Newt punches them so hard, even I wince!

Shoot...Newt punches them so hard, even Chuck Norris ducks!

THAT is precisely why I could not go into politics...Im far too honest to say “My GOOD friend the Senator from...............” if I were in Congress addressing someone from the other side of the aisle.....When in actuality I would be thinking “This POS, the lying corrupt bastard from............” LOL!!!!

I am NOT PC...I prefer to speak the TRUTH, to candy coated platitutes that mean nothing.
I believe the Tea Party is collectively telling the country and the media...SCREW PC, too :-)

There was a time, about 20...no, make that 25 years ago - that I really liked National Review. Now? They can kiss my SW butt!

I so agree with you. I used to have therm bookmarked, but when they started trashing Sarah and pushing Romney I haven't read them since. Had a good go round with Jonah and Rick Lowrey, and to their credit they did respond to me emails, but really, what a couple of pansy-$$$$$ inside-the-beltway wimps.

Gingrich can take it to opposition like Genghis Khan.

Genghis Khan Quotes

“Be of one mind and one faith, that you may conquer your enemies and lead long and happy lives.”

"I will rule them by fixed laws [so] that rest and happiness shall prevail in the world."

“A man’s greatest work is to break his enemies, to drive them before him, to take from them all the things that have been theirs, to hear the weeping of those who cherished them.”

Good man. I like to think that me not knowing Anderson perhaps 75,000 times on television throughout this great land (and having people say "hey, aren't you the kid . . ." in Boston, NYC, Atlanta, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Minneapolis, Richmond, Chicago - both O'Hare and Midway - and other places I can't recall right now) helped elect Ronald Reagan in some small way.

Have to concur. Sure, he got his game on during the debates, but to start his speech by recognizing Newt’s victory was a classy move. One that Mitt couldn’t make, as I commented at the time. Santorum has a great looking family too, and there’s no doubt about where his personal values lie.

Listening to Willard. The main difference between the two candidates is Willard just strings together one political platitude after another. Newt OTOH takes Cain's approach. He states the problem, lays out the solution one step at a time and then concludes with how it will better the people. People wants solutions NOT platitudes.

Soooooo true.
