    GOP polls: Newt Gingrich surges as Cain slips. Is he the real anti-Romney?
    GOP polls show big gains for Newt Gingrich, ranking ahead of or even with Mitt Romney. One of the GOP polls cites Gingrich's 'amazing comeback.' The other notes he would lose to Obama in a head-to-head matchup.

    Not sure how I actually feel about the possibility of Newt Gingrich being President --- I think I would prefer him as a V.P. --- but one thing I am reasonably certain about is that in a one-on-one debate Newt Gingrich could likely clean the clock of just about anyone --- including the current President

    Very true. Newt is an excellent debater and an excellent campaigner. He def has a possibility of pulling an upset. I'd like to see a Newt/John Thune ticket, a Newt/Rob Portman ticket or a Newt/Marco Rubio Ticket.

    LOL!
    Check the polls re: the match-up of President Obama and Newty.

    A Gingrich for president candidacy would be dead on arrival.

    How many women does newt have to abandon on their death bed to render him unelectable? How many revolving accounts at Tiffanys must he have?

    If I recall, before the elections of 2010, conservatives were hollering about ousting incumbents, and that Washington needs fresh representatives. And if the Tea Party is true to their word about being anti-establishment, then I can't imagine why they would support Newt.

    Newt represents the establishment. Don't tell me the Tea Party and some members on this site are being hypocrites. Oh, that would just break my heart.

    Out debate Newt? I would stay tuned to see that one. I think Obama had better pray that Newt isn't his debate partner.

    I see the Fredo Corleones of the gay community are on here defending one of their abusers again. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Newt Gingrich Secretly Funneled $350,000 To Anti-Gay Hate Groups Last Year.

    All Things ConsideredSome of the positions Gingrich took while at the helm of a health care think tank are getting another look. Ideas such as an insurance mandate and incentives to spur the use of computerized medical records are planks of the Democrats' health overhaul law.

    Newt is the new republican flavor of the month
    but this one is going to be SO much fun uncovering his "past"

    Newt believes Barney Frank should go to jail because of ties to a lobbyist, while Newt takes an impressive $1.6 million of Freddie Mac money

    At least now we know how Newt can afford to spend half a million dollars on a shopping spree at Tiffany's.

    The money Newt got from Freddie Mac was for "advise". He advised then right up to the collapse and takeover. Now he thinks everybody involved with Freddie Mac should be in prison. What exactly did he advise them to do? Does he want them to go to prison for following his advise? Does his involvement mean he should go to prison too? If they were not paying any attention to his advise, why did they retain him for so long?

    Maybe someone could hold an inquiry to see how well Freddie Mac's activities correlated with the advise of their various consultants. But who: Darrell Issa, Wikileaks, 60 Minutes?

    I don't care for Newt Gingrich. He is a user as evidenced by his numerous marriages and divorces. The way he divorced his previous wives is beyond disgusting. It is a sign of a man of very low quality. I would much prefer a Mitt Romney-Jon Huntsman GOP ticket. I would also love to see all the narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs get evicted from the GOP and pushed into the marginal fringes were they belong. It is time to permanently rid American politics and government of the shackles of ancient fairy tales known as religious beliefs.
