I'll be honest, if Ron Paul doesn't succeed in getting the nomination and then doesn't run as an independent like he has said, I'd prefer Newt over Rommney.

Thank you but everything will probably change in February 2012.

Watch for Hillary to be trotted out soon.

This will be an unconventional election year.

Still dont matter, we are only voting for the person who has best chance against Obama (ron paul) and a person who does not want terrorist attacks on americans. Newt said he wanted terrorists to attack Americans which makes him a terrorist.

Obama is taking a walk.

Watch for Hillary. Then check out the polling data for her in February.

This will be an unconventional election year.

I actually think your guy might pull it off. Congratulations!

I think the country will never vote for a man who is as wealthy as Ronmey, especially since he doesn't pay fair tax and hides his money offshore to avoid paying his fair share and expecting the poor and middle class to continue paying for the operations of this country...

Mitt Romney / Gordon Gekko is the dream GOP candidate for Obama.

He is the perfect richest 1% poster boy for David Axelrod.

The solution is clear. Deny Axelrod his poster boy and push a different
capitalist in the front door of the White House January 2013.

Serious question. Newts former ethics violations. They are not a concern?

I would have difficulty criticizing Obama for his obvious lack of ethics then supporting Newt.

What say you?

Oh yes! That's what the liberals like to wave around like a huge flag.

Look! Newt had 75 ethics violations!!! Well, it was simple - piling on -.

It was reduced to 1 ethics violation. Newt paid the fine.

I call that digging up the Golden Oldies to trash Newt.

The #1 issue on Americans minds is the economy. Jobs - Jobs - Jobs

I think it was James Carville who said "It's the economy , stupid.'

We will kick out the socialist who has been dreaming up regulations for years
and push a capitalist like Newt in the front door of the White House and
then just see what happens.

If we do that George Soros and Paul Krugman will yell out 1 word. " Damn !!!"

First of all, what exactly were the charges against Newt? David Bonior brought 75 charges against Newt - and 74 of them were found to have NO MERIT WHATSOEVER. The last charge, whether Newt funded his college class "Renewing American Civilization" properly, was too complicated a tax issue for the committee to investigate on its own, so they brought in an outside tax expert to investigate. Two charges arose out of this investigation.

The first 'charge' from the ethics committee is that he "may have" violated tax law by using tax-deductible contributions from nonprofit organizations to teach an allegedly partisan college course.

The lectures never mentioned the words "Republicans" or "Democrats," and one entire session was spent praising FDR. Is that "partisan?" Not only has a former commissioner of the IRS has come forward and said that no tax laws were violated, but an Ethics Committee lawyer even gave approval for the class before Newt started it.

The second 'charge' from the committee is that, in the course of the investigation, Newt provided false information to the committee. Do you know what this "false information" is

Newt testified that the above contributions were in fact made by those organizations to "Renewing American Civilization." He filed papers that stated the very same thing. This is never a fact that anyone was trying to hide. But one paper filed with the committee stated that those groups did not make the contributions. So is this a big deal? Is this "lying to Congress?"

That's all good and well, but perceptions are key in every election.

I want Obama out!

So we have to concentrate on the best person who can do that.

Well the people of South Carolina weighed all of the - perceptions- and gave Newt a

41% victory over Mitt Romney / Gordon Gekko.


Keep your eyes on the #1 concern of America. - The economy -

David Axelrod will try to distract you all year long.

The #1 issue on Americans minds is the economy. Jobs - Jobs - Jobs

I would have to disagree. Just because it is all the media talkas about does not make it so.

Most Americans are still employed and there is a much bigger problem that most people worry about......getting by with the money they do make.

How to pay their bills with the money they make, rising food prices and other such issues weigh on their minds more than jobs.

Also, this entire thing with Newt is a disgrace to the process and insulting to the intelligence. Newt is not an ethical man! How can we talk about the troubles of government with any sort of honesty or even expect change when we are allowing men with previous records of shady government dealings to take the front spot in our national elections?

It says much more about the people who support him then it does Newt.

Does it not scream insanity when the GOP race is being lead by a politician that was investigated for ethics violations, and we expect people to respect the GOP for it?

Ridiculous!

By the way, the entire "socialist, liberal, George Soros" rhetoric only serves to detract any weight from your argument. Some people view that kind of talk as uninformed neocon propaganda that is lapped-up by the brainwashed dogs of right wing radio and tv.

I am willing to listen to your opinions and arguments, but leave the talking points at home.

James Carville disagrees with you.

I'll leave it at that.

James Carville?

Really?

That's the best you can do?

How can you expect to sway opinion when you throw your hat into the ring of political discussion and the best you can do is James Carville?

Ok well let me respond in kind with this mind-shattering political statement:

Tom Selleck's mustache.....need I say more?


You have been served!

I noticed the Republican Establishment is ripping Gingrich a new one and MSM has pretty much declared that he lost. So this is all quite interesting.

Things can change on a dime. Unfortunately, it's usually because the power elite are calling the shots.

I discovered Gekko is a fictional character. This is Gallup's way of making a joke out of the republican party. It is a worthless poll. Thanks for nothing Gallup.

Eurisko I understand that a you want a Hillary run badly because it will cause problems for the Democratic party, but even Hillary is smart enough to know this is a bad move. She will not have much of a chance at the presidency if she decided to run now (she's already missed a number of states so this doesn't help), she'd have to compete with Obama, and even if she wins she'll have the Republican runner. I saw Hillary at a press conference the other day, she looked tired, she is exhausted, she stated that she's leaving the SoS position and possibly politics forever (although I get the feeling she may try her last luck in 2016). Maybe I got you wrong, were you implying a Hillary run?

If Hillary did run, and it was her against Gingrich, would you vote for her anyway?

I HATE GALLOP POLLS, They are pushing Newt and are LIARS. They have no polls that even mention or include RP. None of the articles even mention his name. Gallop polls are part of the problem!

Occupy Gallop polls!!!
