    Newt Gingrich IS the establishment. He breathes it, he embodies it, he epitomizes it. The people within the GOP who understand the odds of winning don't want him to win the nomination because his "establishment" baggage image will make him lose against Obama.

    Not to Newt Gingrich. His ego simply won't allow him to see the cold hard reality that he will NEVER be President

    GOOD! Mitt needs to strike a fatal blow to Newt's campaign and show that he can be tough when he needs to be. He needs a Reaganesque "I paid for this microphone" moment.

    Mitt looks silly when he gets angered. Kinda nervous and outta his element.

    Actually, Mitt is fairly composed. He's an excellent and articulate speaker.

    Even if you don't like Romney, you have to admit that (Ron Paul aside) he's the most qualified for the job out of the GOP candidates.

    I tend to think Huntsman was, even though on business issues he was actually pretty damn conservative, even if he was socially more liberal.

    Agreed! Maybe there is hope as a V.P., though Secretary of State probably more likely --- in that case, ROMNEY/RICE 2012

    Newt Gingrich is anti-establishment only to people who can't remember what happened the day before yesterday.

    You can't get more Washington Establishment than Speaker of the House. (And then forced to resign with a $300,000 fine, first time in history)

    Then goes on to be a power lobbyist with Congress. If that's not Establishment, then the term needs to be retired.

    Huntsman was the only serious candidate. But the GOP is not ready for him.

    It looks like Newt is relying on a video clip where Nancy Reagan named him the heir apparent to Ronnie.

    You all are ignoring that Gingrich rise was directly aligned with the boost of $5 million from Adelson to his Super Pac, yah he may have argued better at the last South Carolina debate, but that didn't put Gingrich over the top, the money did that. Gingrich hadn't changed, just the amount of money available on his behalf changed.

    Wife Miriam Adelson just pumped in another $5 million in the last couple days, and since the Adelson's have billions, they could pump in a hundred million if that's what it takes for him to win. So how do you republicans like the results of your beloved Citizen's United, Corps are people, money is speach, ruling now?

    What an absolute tragedy this is that our election can be purchased in such an obvious fashion. Please do a Google search on Adelson and who else he backs and see if you think this is good for our country.



    If someone thinks it wasn't the injection of money in his campaign that suddenly created his boost to prominence, please show us, because so far as I know, this is the same Gingrich, saying the same damn things he was when he was falling way behind just before the $5 million was given him to promote the interests of the giver.

    Huntsman wasn't a serious candidate. A serious candidate doesn't run in a primary with the "God damn, but my party sucks ass" platform. That's a bad politician sir. You do that in the general once you've built up goodwill with your own base... you don't win a primary that way.

    I'm hoping this will go on for awhile. It helps to show the electorate what a bunch of blooming repubs they are.... and helps to show another is above it... to his benefit!

    I agree he wasn't a serious candidate... This cycle. I think he's playing for 2016. I also think his future success depends on a serious re-examination and abandonment of the social con causes within the GOP, but if that happens, he'll look pretty damn good.
