    Watching him wipe the floor with Oba’Mao in a debate is going to be almost as good as sex.

    Talk is cheap…what’s his voting or policy record been like lately?

    He’s just another big government politician who is not obama.

    I remember he sat with queen nancy on the couch and promoted agw!

    There has to be someone better not corrupted by the stench of washington.

    Death to islam and professional politicians!
    _______

    Yes, these would be troubling if he had not admitted that he made a mistake. He said he is sorry for the Nancy/AGW crap. He also said he was wrong to support the mandate during the Hillarycare debates.

    I would rather have a president that admits his mistakes than one who doggedly carries on refusing to admit he could be wrong (Romney and Obama). – c

    Agreed Bill… sadly, I have to agree.

    With that being said, I don’t think I could live with myself if I didn’t go out and cast a vote against the skinny, dope smokin’ street thug.

    With a billion to spend and 95% of the media in his back pocket, he’ll probably win again, but I have to vote against him… I have to be able to look my children and grandchildren in the eye and tell them I didn’t vote for that piece of shit without lying to them.

    It’d be a START…let’s also go for eliminating cabinet departments, term limits on the judiciary and legislative branches in order to restore proper checks and balances, repealing a few amendments (16th, 17th and a few others to begin with)…

    Honestly, I doubt ANY Republican has the stones to go along with this, but at least it’s being talked about now.

    #4 is more pandering horsesh*t. But he needs to win to even approach the other nine. But isn’t this politics as usual?

    I’d also like to see term limits and generalized tort reform, like “loser pays” across the board.

    Enough with the career politicians and lawyers already! Neither produces crapola for this country…quite the opposite, in fact.

    Newt said that his little sit down with Pelosi was a big mistake.

    I wanted Palin. Too bad for us. But of the candidates we have running now, Newt is hands down the best choice. Yeah he’s a great debater but who else is proposing policies that would get us back on track? Newt is an outside the box guy. This speech was masterful. Can you see Perry-whom I also like-or Bachmann not only giving it, BUT THINKING IT?

    Yeah he’s been in politics a big piece of his life. And yeah he’s been on the wrong side-IMO-a few times. Dede comes to mind, what in the hell was he thinking but let’s not be enemies of the good because he’s not perfect.

    He and RR are the men that have advanced conservatism further than anyone in the past 30 years.

    Now that Cain is out, look for the attacks to shift to Newt. Obama desperately wants to run against Romney.

    #1 is the most important to me and that’s repeal Obamacare. I don’t trust Romney to do it.
    I’ll pull the lever for Newt if he is the nominee.

    Okay but I need more info:
    1. If he CAN AND WILL do it, ace in the hole

    2. Job creation for who? Unions, or small businesses?

    3. Does that include “drill baby drill” and “drill here drill now” or just more Nazi Peelousy green bailouts BS?

    4. how? and with whose money?

    5. see #4

    6. lock the barn now that the cattle sheeple are already here and on the public dole, good plan; are illegals gonna keep getting their freebies in a Newt Admin?

    7. no we just need to fight 6th century muzzie threats with the same 6th century “technology” they recognize

    8. rushing through Rx drugs before all the serious complications and side effects are known?

    9. “interpreting the law,” yes. But whose interpretation? Constitutional Conservatives, or progressively-marxist/communist/socialist?

    10. #1 and #10, good. But again, HOW? And how hard will he fight for it when up against the Demoncrappy machine?

    —————-

    I’m still skeptical, I think Newt/the RNC is setting us up to get on board because they KNOW they need the TEA party votes (they know we’re on to Romney), and then once in office he’ll go all McLame and Grahamnesty on us /my gut

    We still need D.C. outsiders on the Republican ticket or nothing whatsoever will change: Cain-Palin!

    As far as Newt goes, he’s done some things I agree with, like Welfare reform and balancing the budget. He’s also taken some positions I abhor, like the mandate, globull warming, and his “consulting” makes me cringe.

    The thing is, I can’t even say the same thing about Romney.

    So it’s no contest. Half a loaf and all that. Heck, I’m willing to be reasoned with over a policy I might initially disagree. And Newt can do that, unlike Barry and I suspect Mitt.

    This guy just gave a 37 minute argument for his position. This was not a campaign speech. Using historical facts and precise data, he lays out a precise plan on how to fix the government, the debt, energy, etc., with no political bull crap. What other candidate can do this?

    …and without cue cards, notes or a teleprompter.

    I like his approach to tackling the issuses that confront the nation. He is revisitng the tactics of Reagan and updating them for the 21st century. His constant discussion of “savig America” resonates and I like to hear him talk the talk. He understands the issues he must deal with and has a strategy mapped out. I am somewhat concerned over his statment about siging “150 to 200 Executive Orders” and want to know much more about what is behind his statements. I will now go read the details behind the comments. I’ve always supported Newt and he wil kick Obama’s ass in a debate. I can’t wait.

    Newt will have Obama crying like a baby by the time he was even half way thru a debate with him. Too bad Newt wasn’t running for POTUS 2008 but then again Obama was (s)elected based on his color, uh..er his community organizing skills.
