Newt Gingrich has a Gift, the ability to clearly answer questions & describe solutions to problems.

After watching today's Sunday News shows this morning, I was struck how gifted Newt Gingrich is in answering questions. On both Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and on Face the Nation with Bob Sheiffer, Newt smoothly and clearly answered with substance, questions ranging from Afganistan to how to get to $2.50 per gallonn gasoline. Newt also calmly, clearly, truthfully and respectfully answered how he and Santorum differed. My conclusion is that we conservative Americans should wholeheartedly support Newt for President so we can retrieve our rightful place as citizens who can truly have our wishes listened to and implemented by a President who is engaged with the problems of everyday Americans. Newt has a gift and we Americans have a choice. Do we want our children and grandchildren to continue to be made into subjects of elite leaders or do we want to allow Newt to unleash the power of citizenship for us and for our children and grandchildren?

Both of you nailed the question as to why some conservatives favor Santorum over Newt.

Newt, unfortunately, is no Dick Cheney. Dick has a razor sharp mind. See how he cut up his opponents in debate in 2000 and 2004. But his ambitions are kept out of sight. If he had been President in 2001, things would have gone very differently, but he had thought that having influence would be enough. He now sees what Churchill meant when he looked back at Gallipoli and regretted that being is an inferior position was unacceptable.

“Newt wants soc sec reform based on the Galveston plan..Santorum doesnt want any reform”

Santorum wants to cut social security even though it will be “painful”

Great, he goes to church, loves his Mommy, and has a nice collection of sweater vests. Woop de Woop.

And, those that are pro-life know with 100% certainty that Santorum will appoint judges to SCOTUS that will overturn Roe and protect DOMA and marriage. They knew only he can be trusted with 100% certainty rid the military of open homosexuals. If you can't understand why that matters, you're not trying very hard.

Santorum would be a disaster for the economy

Based on what do you make that comment? Santorum will cut taxes, scale back regulations and allow for more exploitation of our natural resources.

We’re gonna get stuck with this clown, and Obama will destroy him in the general.

Really? The latest Rasmussen poll shows Santorum ahead of Obama.

Newt is also the only candidate capable, courageous, and crazy enough to rebalance the judiciary, a task absolutely essential to getting this nation back on its feet.

If not, then it will go down as one of the greatest missed opportunities of all time.

One of for sure, but I also thought Fred Thompson was kinda a shame too. He had promise but just couldn’t get the campaigning down.

Newt has had this gift since high school. He knows how to frame an issue or subject and explain it to the average person. He was well known for his abilities when he went to Baker High School in Columbus, Georgia.

He is a teacher by profession, and can explain complex issues in simple terms. He is a problem solver, and thinks things through. He is a gift to this country as few others are, and he would be a brilliant, insightful, and eloquent president.

But, alas, there are not enough intelligent people in this country who understand or appreciate his genius. What a gift he would be at this time in history when we need a firm and measured leader who truly understands our problems, our government, and our history inside and out.
