Sarah’s comment reminded me of a LOTR quote: Her words are “like the falling of small stones that starts an avalanche in the mountains.”

Excellent!

He didn’t even have his facts right. Gingrich wasn’t 5th in NH—that was reversed.

Oh, but he had his goofy white board!

Speaker Gingrich has a very impressive win in South Carolina. The GOP insiders that have been pushing Romney need to seriously rethink their positions.

Bush ruined Reagan’s legacy.

Bingo. Nice to see some folks have it right. Reagan thought he HAD to have Bush as VP to get the election - but it turned out he didn't I don't think.

If Gingrich is anywhere nearly as successful as Reagan he'll need to have a true conservative in at VP...but also someone who isn't unduly abrasive but can bring others in...like Reagan himself was.

That's a tall order - getting close to Reagan's success. Reagan was the man for the time. Reagan handled power well because he didn't really care for it. Power was only a means to an end for Reagan. Reagan's end was, in a sense, an end of power, a reduction of government power including his own. Reagan didn't seek office - the office sought him. And as the plaque on his desk said, he was able to so much because it didn't matter to him who got the credit.

This may be the most substantive difference between Reagan and Gingrich. I think Gingrich wants the power and (maybe) the glory and (I think) the credit. Yes, I hope he wins the nomination and the election, but I worry about him once he's in power. I think real success tends to flee from us when our success becomes the most important thing to us.

In 20 years they’ll be trotting out Ron Paul’s cryogenically preserved head for lengthy concession speeches in the GOP primaries.

FOX just called it “absolute blowout” for Newt more than once. Hemmer said “wow, wow, wow.” Newt won almost all the counties and he says he could end up winning them all. The map looks like Reagan 1984.

BLOWOUT!

Which is to say, “a strong showing” in AP and CNN-speak...or “unexpected upset” on MSNBC.

Just the source of curses and angst on DU...


Consider tonight as an example of how Republicans/Conservatives will pull together to defeat obama!

Brit Hume just called this “a whopping victory” for Gingrich.

What a week this has been!

A week ago, they were ready to hold a coronation for the Mittwit. It looked like any hope of a conservative nominee was about to be washed out to sea. Sarah Palin and Rick Perry changed the ballgame. Tokyo Rove changed his Depends.

Newt up at the podium.

She and I were having a private conversation about you - you weren’t invited.

When the final numbers are in, it’s important to know how big the spread was between Newt and Romney. At this moment, it looks like a huge blowout and that will send him off great to Florida.

David, lurkers, and fellow FReepers ...

DON'T FEED THE TROLL.

Either BenKen is a seriously disturbed 'toon who needs professional psychiatric help, OR he is a paid disruptor whose mission is to take the focus of this thread OFF the subject at hand and work to see it become predominantly a theological discussion designed to reinforce the liberal stereotype of "the religious right" as a bunch of Puritanical nut-cases.

Regardless of why he is doing it, BenKen appears to be succeeding as a destructive disruptor, and he is able to succeed only because folks are feeding the troll.

I admit I've done a little proselytizing on FR, but Ben Ken has done nothing else, and all to the denigration of the mission and subject at hand. I urge fellow FReepers: Ignore him, and this thread will improve.

I am thrilled over Newt’s SC victory and looking forward to Monday’s debate in Fla. However, Mitt has already spent 7 MILLION in campaign ads in Fla and we know it is Bush country. Next few races are really tough...Nevada, Colorado and Minn, which are leaning towards Romney. I think Newt picked up all 25 delegates in South Carolina. Also, take note that Rick Santorum and Gingrich are not bashing each other as much tonight..could something be going on?
