>> My heart aches for the common sense Newt offers.

The definitive American.

At least the LA primary is closed. Dems are not invited to the Party.

Newt needs to fire up his GOTV.

Has Two-State Newt given up on LA; he said Tuesday he was concentrating everything now on NC, another GA neighbor. Sad that it’s all over no matter what. This year has again proved that our little Republican primary voters are not particularly “conservative” at all.

Thank you for the post... Newt was very good, again.

Unfortunately, only real conservatives will appreciate the message.

The Romney cultists and the Saintorum religious zealots, will either not watch it or understand it even if they do.

Thanks so much for the ping! I hope the LA Freepers who didn't get to attend events with Newt will take a listen. Even if they support Romney or Santorum, I hope they will take a listen.

As I have stated before, I will vote for WHOMEVER our nominee is against Obama. I have been supporting Newt for many reasons,including his experience in getting things done. The following reasons also mean a lot to me.

Newt was the first candidate to speak out RIGHT AWAY in support of our soldiers following the Koran burning incident, and the murder of our soldiers by Afghan soldiers. And he has continued to speak out in support of our military and against Obama’s treatment of our heroes.

Newt was the first candidate to come out with a real workable energy plan. We can become energy independent! Newt's plan is so doable that Obama just had to make comments against Newt's plan and calling Newt a liar! I guess Obama forgot that when he took office gas was $1.89 per gallon!

Well you can always walk around with a club at the polling stations and look “tuff”. Be sure to wear something with dime store medals on it and shiny brass buttons.

I can listen to Newt for hours, he’s never boring.
Beside the knowledge, data, deep understanding of the issues, he’s got a high sense of humor and connects so well with people. I like his humanist side.
He keeps things factual, never drives into propaganda and sticks to his conservative beliefs.

How the deuce can so many conservatives prefer the bumbling, sweating, incoherent Rick to Newt? I just don’t get it.

“I would attach the privilege (not a “right”) to vote to each person’s personal IQ. Under a low limit - say 95 - one cannot vote.”

That is to Jim Crow. However, I wished we could link voting to filling a tax return. Street people shouldn’t be voting, nor should those in college not yet working. If you don’t pay income tax, you shouldn’t be voting.

The reason Saint Rick is sometimes shown sweating is that he did not realize how warm the weather is in the South in February and March and was dressed in too-thick clothing. I’m somewhat surprised that one would use this to attack any candidate.
