    Newt Gingrich

    Gingrich, a former Georgia congressman, leads Romney 43 percent to 21 percent among Georgia Republicans, according to the poll by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Georgia Newspaper Partnership. No other candidate drew double-digit support.

    a light colored log, floating in the bowl of an abandoned gas station toilet, stands out from the darker colored ones.... but they all stink.


    think about this analogy for a few seconds.

    that all "might" change after this (it certainly should!) :

    Gingrich: I'll Arrest Judges Who Enforce The Separation Of Church & State

    Zack Ford reports at Think Progress:
    Continuing his crusade against the courts, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich railed against judges “imposing secularism” on the country on this morning’s Face The Nation. Arguing that “activist judges” who make disagreeable decisions should be held accountable before Congress, he told Bob Schieffer that he would send a U.S. Marshal or Capitol Police officer to arrest judges if that’s what it took to reign them in, and then encourage impeachment.

    http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2011/12/18/391576/gingrich-marshal-judges/



    SCHIEFFER: One of the things you say is that if you don’t like what a court has done, that Congress should subpoena the judge and bring him before Congress and hold a Congressional hearing… how would you enforce that? Would you send the Capitol Police down to arrest him?
    GINGRICH: Sure. If you had to. Or you’d instruct the Justice Department to send a U.S. Marshal.
    Watch it:

    +1 Menergy_1 (although the source of the info was "Face the Nation")

    Either Mr. Gingrich doesn't understand the constitutional concept of "checks and balances",
    or
    he is intentionally communicating misinformation.

    The outcome is the same either way - I cannot vote for him.

    People who discuss politics with family and friends are significantly better informed than those who avoid political talk (2004 publication from American National Election Studies www.electionstudies.org/)

    This "hound of liberalism" is happy that Gingrich is ahead, since I think he is a far weaker candidate than Romney to take on Obama.
    Gingrich is the ultimate corrupt Washington insider, who has lobbied on every side of any issue people would pay him for. He stands for nothing other than enriching himself and his wife/mistresses. He has zero chance of being elected -- which is why you see no prominent Repub's endorsing him.

    Remember all those Congressmen he helped get elected when he took control of the House during the 90s? Many of them are still in office and essentially owe their careers to him. Doesn't it seem strange that none of them have endorsed Newt? It's because they know he is a lobbyist/whore who can't be elected.

    By the way, during the last GOP debate I was so glad to see that Bachmann had resorted to telling the truth, but her first truth telling was about NEWT. Keep it up Bachmann.

    lol.

    It is almost as if the GOP wants to throw away the POTUS race.

    With the remote exception of Ron Paul and possibly Huntsman (who is even more of a long shot in the dark than Dr. Paul).... the entire GOP field is a parody.

    I guess their logic is to deliberately lose so that Obama is guaranteed the next four years to go into ultra-liberal lame duck mode and wreck things up so badly that they can bring in an unbeatable (???) candidate.

    But yeah, most of the old farts they have in the GOP are long in need of being shipped off to the retirement home.

    I don't think most would consider Romney a parody or an old fart. He came across very well being interviewed by Chris Wallace Sunday. There is a fair chance he will be the next president, a significant improvement over the current one. Regarding Paul, he came across to many as not qualified based on his foreign policy. Even if you agree with his assessment of the past and mistakes made, he could not answer a basic question as to how he would react to a specific act of Iranian provocation. Having been given the chance twice, all he could do was justify or at least explain the basis for their hypothetical act. I think his real answer is he would do nothing. He has a good organization in Iowa and some very dedicated followers, but I think many consider his foreign policy position as totally disqualifying.

    Newt's campaign is already imploding -- at least in Iowa.
    His support has been cut in half in just two weeks, and now he's in third place behind front-runner Ron Paul and Romney.
    I guess once people took a closer look they didn't like what they saw -- no big surprise there.

    I'll 'third' this !!!


    If the repubs throw this race, Congress can keep saying no as well as the senate blocking everything by filibusters. These TBagger led Politicians can continue their stategy of inconsequential legislation totally ignoring jobs and have us in an even deeper mess after another 4 years.

    Repubs could then bring in a 'savior' and the sheeple will bite on whatever they offer for their Corporate Lobbyists, like a lot more help for the top 1% because they're the job creaters and that strategy has worked so well now for the last 10 years. We have a bright future with repubs in it. LOL

    Overall we have one party anyway, look at all the Obama promises against the wars and for peace, then take a look at how he just fell right in with the Military Complex, look at all the caving he's done for the Corporatists?


    God how I wish for a third Party candidate with a strong backbone.

    Short of that, we do have Ron Paul who at least is consistent in confronting even his own party. If he can somehow get past the repub machine, he just may get my vote.

    I'm rather sick of the 'sham' two party system who basicly throw out a few smokescreens to cover up that whoever of the two sides gets in, we are pretty well stuck with the same damn outcomes.

    It's amusing reading all the posts and people quoting this poll and that poll, hoping someone like Gingrich will be the candidate so it hands Obama a seemingly easy victory. I don't even think Gingrich really believes he will be the nominee in the end. However, he is a very smart man, and he is serving a very important purpose as a candidate in this campaign playing the elder statesman.
    The candidate the Dems are most worried about, and with good reason, is Mitt Romney. They would love nothing more than to face Gingrich in the general. My guess is a very simple IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.

    US is a country of single party. Both parties practically enact similar policies through either democratic or republican means.

    Chomsky>> "...In the US, there is basically one party - the business party. It has two factions, called Democrats and Republicans, which are somewhat different but carry out variations on the same policies..."

    The debates don’t matter and your vote doesn’t count, especially when it comes to the presidential elections. The people we should be really having debate for their positions are the ones that really shape policies; The CEOs and directors of large industries (Specially the Military Industry, Fuel and Energy Industries), the head of large banks, the chairs of the Federal Reserve and the Treasury, Lobbyists, Judges...etc. Presidents and elected Representatives enact the will of those that have the ability to engage them. You and I cannot. Starting from the very clear line of division between government and public, the City Council all the way up to the White House there are barriers that make it almost impossible for the average person to gain access to the system. The tools, the time, the money, the energy to overcome the obstacles are only in possession of organized institutions not you. Try it! I have!

    It is always good to know what is going on even if you know you can’t do anything about it, but don’t waist too much time convincing others about something non of us know enough about or have control of. Both sides are the same!

    I've tuned out the GOP race. I just gives a depressing view of in how sorry a state the Republicab Party is, and the media and pundit's total abrogation of any responsibility to queston candidates when they say such outrageously stupid tings. Where is the closing comment in the story that says "what Ms bachman and Mr gingrich have said" is not permissible under the US Constitution."?

    The population is being deliberately misinformed, dumbed down, the media is passively complicit, and the Fairness Doctrine was scrapped to allow it.
    respect for expertise is derided as "élitism."


    And these are the people who feel they should be the global "superpower."


    At least China puts huge emphasis on education, so I actually worry less about Chinese domination.


    i suspect Future historians will point to the ruling that gave corporations person status and declared money =speech as the nadir of U.S. society.

    TRUTH.

    On paper (the constitution, which politicians have debased to the point of it being as worthless as the US Dollar, and practically used as toilet paper to smear the fetid droppings of legislation, and the reams of confusing federal regulations shat out daily into the Federal Register)... we are a free republic, of, for, and by the people.

    In practice we are a plutocracy ran by the corporations on one side and labour unions and other collectivist organizations on the other.
