You cannot question The Ministry of Truth.

Of course Newt is leading the polls

We have always been at war with Eastasia....

And I deliberately contracted syphilis.

He is on top because the people who control what you believe say so.
The media says so.

He's going to get all the votes Cain would have gotten, because some people want to vote for a pimp-daddy.

Yeah..something doesn't seem right...


Consider the competition.

Gingrich may be leading in the polls, but I think its less about support for Gingrich and more that the GOP rank-and-file detests Mitt Romney. Gingrich is just the latest challenger that they're cycling through. At the same time, look at Romney's poll numbers. You would think he'd be picking up votes, but instead, he's maintaining in the low 20s. Its pretty clear that most Republican voters don't like him and are searching for someone, anyone else to be the nominee.

As I've said before, it reminds me of late 2007 when McCain started gaining momentum, not so much because he was a good candidate. He wasn't. Its just that he was the least pathetic.

Mitt: Mormon
Newt: NWO

He's just the newest GOP flavor of the week. Give it a month and everyone will be over him. I wonder if Huntsman is going to get a turn to be flavor of the week?

How can Newt Gingrich be at the top of the polls

Because Republicans are in a pickle ... there is NO ONE who is worthy of a POTUS vote in 2012 ... and they are desperate to not vote for the crown prince Romney. So desperate that they over look Gingrich's flaws .. like his cuddling with Nancy Pelosi on the park bench while pushing the faux-man-made-global-warming agenda.

** Going through republican minds for 2012 **
Obama = not a freak'n chance. Epic failure.
Romney = oh god .. the crown prince and chosen of Rove and Chris Christy sucks.
Newt = enough experience to get the job done, he sucks, but he's not as useless as Romney.

At least that's what seems to be ... based on what the talking heads have been saying.

How can this guy be at the top of the polls? With all his baggage why do people support him?

-He served his first wife with divorce papers while she recovered from cancer treatment.
-He left his second wife for his mistress.
-Paid 300,000 fine for misusing a charity for political gains.
-He made tons of money giving "advice" to freddie mac
-He is everything washington that people are upset about. No one is more washington type than him.
-He take whatever side of the story that benefits him. Look at the ad for global warming that he did with hillary Clinton

Without getting into a pi$$ing contest over whether he has any merits for the job, let's look at your 'facts', since this is obviously nothing more than a hit piece.

-He served his first wife with divorce papers while she recovered from cancer treatment.

Libs love to spin this as if she were on her death bed and he took the morbid opportunity to serve her with the fact that he wanted a divorce. The truth is far more mundane than that. Look it up.

-He left his second wife for his mistress.

Someone cares about morality in DC? Since when?

-He made tons of money giving "advice" to freddie mac

Perfectly legal. So what?

Those weren't even facts that you tossed out there.

Newt can debate a topic without need for a teleprompter or Cliff's notes. That's impressive, and people like to see it.

Is it just because Ron Paul lost a poll or two?






I mean, you throw these alleged facts out that fall apart her







I didn't know of anyone voting for him until he went up to the top of the polls. Now people say"I'm voting for newt he is leading in the polls." I think that is pathetic.. Is the media so overtaken that they can just make up the polls to get people to vote for him. Is it that he is actually a good canidate? I can't find anything that would make me vote for him. Has he ever done anything while in office that is noteworthy?
I watched all the debates and he speaks very well (better than I type) but to me he comes off as an arrogant self centered person. I remember at the beginning of the year he dropped to nothing then within a week he was at the top of the polls.
I also believe he has no chance of winning the presidency of the USA. It all seems so obviously rigged and most people don't notice. Its as if they accept that this is the way it works.
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Also anything that he did good or bad that you could list.

Agree with one of the posts above.

Newt is just the flavor of the week, as the post said.

Soon he will plummet and somebody else will take the spotlight.

Im not bitchy . I do think a candidate ( even one you don't like ) should know the Constitution. Or you can re elect good ole' Barack. Do you want me to start a thread ? I will . Bring a lunch. You have your work cut out for you if we are talking American History and foundations


How do you know he knows the Constitution?

I think the real question is, will he respect the Constitution?

Why is he leading the polls? Because the media is shaping the election that way.

When you have to choose between weak, weaker, and weakest, you end up with Newt at the top. I am convinced a lot of viable candidates that could have made a run for it, are sitting this one out. He is the Bob Dole of the Republican's trying to fight Clinton.

Who wants to take over at this point on history? You can rack up the debt, or make a bunch of unpopular decisions. Better let someone else take the bullet and come marching in around 2016 when things may just be a bit more settled.

It is because the rest of the republican field is just that much worse lol. I think basically it is because Newt was Speaker of House during good economic times in America. he is the only one there with a positive record he can claim to have been a part of.

It should be obvious by now that we are going to get 4 more years of Obama.

Read his book "Why American Exceptionalism Matters" Thats all you need to understand why I said he knows The Constitution and American History. Few know it as well as he does..


Too bad you could not just answer the question. No one is going to run out and buy his book because of your nonanswer.

Perhaps you can explain the relevance? The priest that raped the little boy down the street knew the bible like nobody else.
