People has BETTER stop worrying about his weight And START worrying about what your life is going to be once you get the FANATIC santorum in there who wants to enact laws to tell you what you can and cannot do in your own home! Or Romney who will put your taxes so high you will just be signing your paycheck (if you have one)over to the Govt! And then there is Obama, if we arent' bombed weekly because he is too stupid to take care of our military or even worry that people WANT to kill Americans, We will certainly work to give every dime to all the people HE thinks should have the money and will NEVER work one day for it!!

Now, how about the fat guy, who grew up middle class, HAS turned Washington around before, Could care less how much MONEY you have or how powerful you are, HE WILL do what HE thinks is best for the working class!! I personally don't give a sh/t if he weighs 5,000 pounds as long as he keeps doing what he does best! And that is working the the PEOPLE who WORK in this Country!!! Maybe you Aren't one of those????

I agree with what you say. It is unfortunate that a lot of people will only vote for "pretty people." That is a large part of how President Kennedy was elected. That (and billions of dollars) is how President Obama was elected.
Mr. Gingrich is an intelligent knowledgeable historian. He knows the historical mistakes we should not repeat. He is a straight talker who doesn't mince words, whether you agree with him or not.

Vote for Newt Gingrich.

Even if he does win he'll lose to Mitt Romney later on. He's only hurting Santorum. His ego is so big he's screwing his own political allies.

I'm not voting this year. But I'm pretty sure Obama's easily gonna win over Romney or Santorum.

The mass media and some commentators would like to present Santorum as a candidate whose strength is only in social issues. They deliberately do this in order to have BHO reelected. Santorum is not only the leader in social issues but in national security and foreign policy. Please read the two acts that he authored in 2004: The Iran Freedom Act and the Syrian Accountability Act. Santorum strongly opposes a government intrusion in private sectors. Base on principle, He opposed all bailouts. He condemns the current administration’s infringement on freedom of religion and conscience. The government should not force religious individuals and religious organizations such as catholic schools, charities etc. to provide its employees with contraceptives, morning-after pills (Plan B) and sterilization. This is an infringement on religious freedom and an attack on people of faith.
Let us take some common factors for all the candidates and
evaluate them in order to hire one of them as POTUS:
1. Character and integrity -Santorum wins hands down; No flip-flops in cap & trade, climate change, bailouts, abortion , gay marriage, individual health mandates etc.; Compared to others he has very less or no personal, professional and political issues. He could make Barack Obama and his policies an issue of the general campaign. We cannot afford a candidate who will be an issue in the general campaign.
2. Humble Beginnings - Santorum wins (lived in public housings - with a coal miner parents'); has less money than Obama and the remaining candidates. There is nothing wrong in having more money. Having less money discourages the left from using class warfare. They cannot say Santorum is part of the 1% who represents the interest of the Wall Street.
3. Consistency in conservative leadership in sanctity of life & family, consistently supports marriage between a man & a woman, fought for tort reform; fought for welfare reform, Defense of Marriage Act( DOMA), late term abortion and had legislative victories etc.: Santorum has a matchless record in social issues. Romney has started saying he lived having core conservative values. Romney’s father was Rockefeller republican and his mother was pro-choice. He even called himself severely conservative. Is there anyone who could tell us what Romney’s consistent values have been for his life time? Santorum got 75% of the votes by leaders of Evangelicals, Catholics, and Protestants who met early this year in Houston Texas (all candidates sent their surrogates to the two day conference who heard all of them speak for their respective candidates before the votes). He has 88% rating by ACU. He has 98% ratings by NRA while Ron Paul has 50%.
4. Sound national security and foreign policy: Santorum even won in some of the CNN debates when asked about US foreign policy for Latin America etc. and various issues including issues related to individual mandates and Romney care. No other candidate has an experience in national security & foreign policy like Santorum. Please read online the Iran Freedom & Support Act & the Syrian Accountability act which were authored by Santorum in 2004. Why do we look to a novice (such as Romney and others) in national security and foreign policy when we have already a well experienced candidate (Santorum)? As a person who worked for 8 years as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, he knows better about our national security and international interests.
5. Likability: It is widely believed that Santorum is the most likable candidate with less or almost no personal and professional issues. He is the best role model for a family.
6. Economic Policy: Santorum is the only candidate who has a family friendly and manufacturing centered economic policy that helps US to grow our economy and jobs. Through this policy he can win back Reagan democrats, blue collar workers in the swing states. The Wall Street Journal called Santorum’s economic policy bold.

7. Negative Campaign; Insider or/and Outsider issue: Romney has already spent about $50 Million to attack his fellow republicans. He has continued to distort Santorum’s records. Romney is the worst in negative campaign followed by Ron Paul and Gingrich. Romney requested earmarks for Utah Olympics and for Massachusetts. He accuses Santorum as earmarker, insider and big government spender. ABC News recent video exposed Romney’s attitude about receiving earmarks (government money). Getting earmarks and bringing the bacon home gladly was one of the reasons representatives were sent to Washington DC, according to former Senator from Wyoming, Allen Simpson on CSPAN recently. The debt ceiling while Santorum was in US Senate was very much smaller than what it is now. It is better to say that Romney is the current ultimate insider (most elite and Republican establishment still support Romney) because he is for the status quo. Being an insider gives you a better insight and understanding of the problems in the federal government (the three coequal branches of our government). Santorum left the Senate five years ago and has been in private sector since then. Earmark is less than 1% of the US yearly budget and is legal. Resorting to such insignificant issue and an attack by Romney shows his desperation to simply get a vote at any cost.
8. Debating skills: Although he does not promote himself as the best debater like Newt, Santorum won some of the CNN debates before the one we saw in Arizona (almost all media outlets agreed to the fact that Santorum won based on substance). There are three presidential debates in the fall. The idea that a candidate will have a Douglas – Lincoln debate type is just an illusion and a stunt to get votes. Nobody can force any one to a debate outside of he officially agreed upon three debates to which he may not agree.
Rupert Murdoch (Owner of the Fox News) said Santorum has a big idea when compared to others. Rush Limbaugh said he is the one who has not harmed the conservative cause.
Ron Paul is a libertarian. He ran on Libertarian ticket in 1988. He has not ruled out a possibility of running as a third party candidate in 2012. He has not adequately addressed about his racist newsletters published under his name and for which he was the editor. His isolationist foreign policy and his belief that America is responsible for all the attacks against it including 911 and his objection to America’s entry into WWII, which stopped Nazis and communists world domination won't be acceptable to the majority of Americans. Romney is unreliable and Newt is unpredictable, according to those who closely know them. Romney is not credible to stand against Obama on Obamacre, bailouts, tax increases (had big net tax increases and fees as Governor), supported No Child Left Behind Program and still supports it (although he accuses Santorum of the same). Newt married three times and changed church three times. Newt was for bailouts, TARP, the bogus man made climate change, cap & trade, individual health mandate, member of the Council On Foreign Relations (globalist) since 1990s. Newt divorced twice due to infidelity.

We are staying in the panhandle of Florida and there are loads of ads from either Mr. Santorum or his superpac, that are negative ads. Most are about Mr. Romney, but a few are about Mr. Gingrich. Mr. Gingrich wanted to run a completely positive campaign (as I believe Mr. Santorum also did) and did not post a single negative ad until Mr. Romney blasted him (Mr. Gingrich) so badly that he was forced to reciprocate to survive in the running. It appears that Mr. Romney is spending so much money of his own and his superpac's that he is trying to buy the White House. President Obama, in my opinion, did the same thing.

#tcot #prolife WHY NewtGingrich is not a friend of the Constitution&is a globalist,opportunist&untr ustworthy for POTUS http://t.co/9mQJAUCK
He made a formal appeal to the House of Representatives in 1995 to "increase the power of President Clinton" by repealing the War Powers Act. He praised Clinton's unconstitutional use of the U.S. military to inflict a communist regime on Haiti in 1994, the same year he voted for an extra $1.2 billion for United Nations "peacekeeping" missions. He also urged the President to expand U.S. military presence in Bosnia the following year.
In 1994, Gingrich described himself as "a conservative futurist." He said that those who were trying to define him should look no further than The Third Wave, a 1980 book written by Alvin Toffler. The book describes our society as entering a post-industrial phase in which abortion, homosexuality, promiscuity, and divorce are perfectly normal, even virtuous.
Gingrich's liberal voting record is that he has been a member, since 1990, of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), a group founded in 1921 as a think tank of influential politicians and policymakers dedicated to sacrificing national independence to create a global government. He showed his fidelity to internationalism in a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Affairs in July of 1995 when he brazenly admitted his disdain for our founding document.
"The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution," he said. "Under our [constitutional system]- either we're going to have to rethink our Constitution, or we're going to have to rethink our process of decision-making." He (Gingrich) went on to profess an oxymoronic belief in "very strong but limited federal government," and pledged, "I am for the United Nations."
These are just some of the reasons I do not trust him as POTUS,but also I can't trust a man with our country who took an oath to God and his wives to remain loyal&faithful. I couldn't 'marry' him to our country and wouldn't marry someone with this kind of character flaw. I can forgive the sinner,but not the sin. Forgiveness also does not equate to voting for someone with such great character flaws and a globalist agenda, which endangers US sovereignty. Santorum supports defunding the UN,which would be a great step in the right direction for the US.
Character Matters,Along W/Faith,Family&Freedom-Sup port Santorum in 2012 http://t.co/CYKH4gY If Gingrich dropped out 58% of his supporters say they would move to Santorum, while 22% would go to Romney and 17% to Paul.
Excerpt:
... disloyalty or disunity&bickering and the media influence is why I believe Cain,Palin,Bachmann and Perry were thrown under the bus;conservatives& teaparty didn't stand by the true conservatives from the beginning.

I don’t hate anybody including Mormons. Opposing Romney's record & shiftiness doesn’t mean hating Romney or/and Mormons as opposing BHO's policies does not mean hating blacks.
Whether we believe or not Mormonism will be an issue with those who take their faith seriously & even by the left if they think to more votes could be gained by making Mormonism an issue. It is widely reported that about 93% of Mormons in Nevada and a great number of them in Arizona, Washington State and Idaho voted for Romney and made him the winner. One pastor in Florida publicly stated about 10% of blacks will note vote for a Mormon because of past mistreatment of blacks by them. More than his faith, Romney's problem is his record and shiftiness. Instead of waiting until the fall, it is to Rooney's advantage to be properly vetted now than in fall. BHO & DNC will make anything an issue (including his religion) if they think that they could turn some people away from him should he become a republican nominee. Recently, I briefly watched on MSNBC when Colbert commented in detail about Mormonism.
Santorum has a national security & foreign policy experience unlike Romney & the rest of the candidates. Can we afford to have a novice in international affairs in this volatile world? Book knowledge alone does not help much in international affairs.
Because of negative ads, the public is being misled to believe that a private sector experience is "better" than government experience for the top government job. Does this make sense? The only CEO who became president was Hoover. As private sector experience is needed and better in a private sector, a federal government sector experience is needed and better to run a federal government. The irony we see now is very amazing. So many are misled to believe that a government sector experience is ‘bad” to run a government sector. Thanks to Romney and his super PACs, valuable and useful words like "Team" or "Compromise" or/and “Insider” have become a "dirty" words. We should not forget that an insider like Santorum who exposed the scandals in Congress as a member of the Gang of 7 with a lot of legislative victories as a leader knows better than an outsider. Those who support Romney please ask him how the two major parties in the US Congress could come out of a gridlock without making a team effort within a party and then form a broad coalition with the other party to pass any bill? Romney is not truthful in his ads, comments. He does not even know an impact his tax plan could have on a deficit. His bravado and frequent attack on BHO in a republican primary and his negative attacks against his fellow republicans to divert the public's' attention from his flawed past records is wrongly taken as a strength and sign of elect-ability. Conservatives have started seeing what is going on behind the scene. Romney has not come clean on Romneycare, the money he keeps on Cayman Island and his erroneous claim that he grew Massachusetts economy and reduced unemployment rate to 4.7%, when the reduction was attributed to hundreds of thousands of the people leaving the state.
Critics hit Romney job-creation record
Cite workers that left Massachusetts on Washington Times 02/27/12.
On Romney's job creation & unemployment rate reduction, please go to this website. The website states his claims are not true.

Breaking News: Romney Lied During the Last Debate
This is only an issue because Romney has made it an issue by being pro-choice in MA and then flip flopping by claiming to be pro-life now. According to fact checkers Mitt Romney lied during his last debate. His health care plan did require the Catholic church to pay for free abortions and he did not consult church leaders yet he complains about Obama's health care plan for the same thing. What else will he lie about?
http://bostoncatholicinside... He whines about federal spending yet he used 6 million of it to pay for rearranging the lawn chairs for the Olympics and his Confederate buddy Ron Paul spent 398 million a year. Now Paul is in trouble with a campaign donor for double dipping for travel expenses.
Romney whines about No Child Left Behind yet he supported it in 2006. H...e is such a hypocrite.
Romney whines about Arlen Specter but he voted for Paul Songas. What a hypocrite.
Breaking News: Confederate Kook Ron Paul Working for Romney
Ron Paul claims to like Ronald Reagan yet he has said "Ronald Reagan is a failure" and the "CIA deals drugs." Not only are his racist newsletters everywhere but now it is out there that his mentors were Confederates who hated Abraham Lincoln for keeping the union together. Now Romney is connected to extremists. Profiting from the liquidation of businesses and rearranging the chairs at the Olympics does not qualify you to be president. He may pretend to be Mr. Main Street but we all know he is Mr Wall Street. Vote for Romney in any election? I don't think so.
Romney said it is impossible to know about the cost of his tax plan. Please go to this website for further details.

Gingrich has smart reasons for all of his decisions! And to be conservative on some issues is not only smart it is American!! Think about it although most conservatives do not believe in birth control or abortion, they are tempered in their conversations! If you remember back in the first debates when Santorum was ranting about his social issues accused Gingrich of never wanting to talk about those issues. The speaker is MORE wise than to try to force the majorty of American women to believe as he does, as with anyone who truly believes in the rigth to life issue they want to appeal to women through their christian beliefs and seek to help them to make different decisions by offering another way. To try to dicatate to women only makes them run screaming in the opposite direction. while the Speaker does not believe in the ever increasing welfare state in this Country, that includes the govt paying for abortions/contraception, he does not in anyway have any part of any war on womens health or their right to choose. He does however believe that organization to do not believe in those issues should be forced to pay for them! And I agree with that, it would be like the gov't telling me that I have to pay for legal fees for a child molester to gain rights to have custody of the child he molested!! My beliefs are so strong against it that I would not one penny of mine to go toward it, although it may be HIS right...I would NOT want to be forced to pay.

I agree. I think he is the best candidate. For one thing, he is the most experienced in diplomacy, leadership, study of history, constitution, etc. He is a straight talker, too.
One thing I don't understand, and that has little to do with Mr. Gingrich. Why do people equate birth control and abortion? I believe strongly in birth control. It cuts down on unwanted and abused babies, overcrowding in third world countries, numbers of undernurished children on welfare, etc. I do not believe in abortion (except in cases of rape and incest if deemed necessary). I see it as just plain wrong. I don't judge those who believe in abortion or those who have had one. That's not up to me. This is all my humble opinion.

Newt Gingtich has done nothing but consultt with companies using his DC influence; he has close to 100 health care companies he represented. He gor 1.6 millions ha made off Freddie Mac our tax money, and people are losing their homes. Gingrich quit his job after he wes charged, Mariane Gingrich exposed his moral values as conservative he proposed "OPEN MARRIAGE" and had numerous affairs while still married and left wives when they became ill and old. Gingrich has things we don't know but Nancy Pelossi said he knows secret and Newt will never be president of the United States. According to all that; I think Obama will crush him in general election. Rick Sanroeum is a serial earmarkers he voted for HJRes 47 debt limit increase Resolution.. voted to protect abortion clinics. and more
Romney is a succesful businessman, he knows how to create jobs and restore failed economy. The most concerns of the Americans are JOB ,ECONOMY, and Romney can successfully change the country to prosperity. Vote Romney for 2012 or we will deal with 4 more years of Obama. So many states have voted for him as they know he's capable of creating jobs, balancing budgets and defeating Obama in general election

Newt has not won anything out of the South and there are not enough Southern States to get him to the top, even if he does make a significant showing tomorrow.

MS and AL have open primaries, and nothing on the Democratic ticket to vote for.
