    s-NEWT-GINGRICH-2012-large.jpg

    Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich has told insiders that he plans to run for president in 2012, with Georgia as his base, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    According to the report, Gingrich has reached out to several prominent Republicans in his former home state in the last 24 hours, stating he intends on a 2012 presidential run.

    However, a spokesman for Gingrich, Rick Tyler, denies that the former House Speaker has made a decision on 2012. Tyler states: "His plans are to decide on whether to create an exploratory committee in late February, and make a decision about his candidacy in March."

    Gingrich, 67, is registered to vote in Virginia but has spent most of his adult life in Georgia and served as a congressman in Atlanta from 1979 to 1999. He toyed with the idea of a 2008 presidential bid before ultimately deciding against it.

    Gingrich recently called President Obama's staff a "third term of the Clintons."

    "Third term of Clintons" is a great thing indeed.

    What we DON'T need is a hypocrite of the first degree...Newt "Contract On America" Gingrich.

    I don't really need to rehash the story about Newt and his wife and cancer and the mistress and the divorce and all, do I? I mean, you all know what I'm talking about, right?

    I don't suppose he'd be running on "family values" then? icon_wink.gif

    Huckabee has yet to make any definitive statement but I think he would be the clear front-runner for the GOP nomination and would be a credible candidate.

    Romney will try for the nomination (I am sure) but the "Mormon thing" is a problem (but the criticism will be focussed on his health care package.


    I am curious about Christie too.
