Newt Gingrich is the best candidate the Republicans have. He is very knowlegeable about the history and workings of this country, the constitution, foreign policy, and he can debate better than anyone I have ever heard.

Mr. Gingrich is by far the better informed, most experienced candidate. He has vision and logical, "do-able" plans for our country. He not only promises $2.50 a gallon gasoline, but can list the exact steps needed to provide it to "we the people" in the U.S.

I do not like it when an extremely wealthy person (Mr. Romney) can essentially buy an election or the White House (President Obama). Money alone does not make the best candidate. It just makes that person totally out of touch with the majority of people (the "common man").

I agree, Louise, if we don't elect the Speaker we're in for 4 more years of Obama. The other candidates are plastic, bending with the political wind, who have nothing but rhetoric to offer. They only wish they had a record like the Speaker's to run on.

Mr. Family Values; Mr. Sanctity of Marriage is DOA.

Another lying teabagger - stick a fork in Neuter. A fat, white, racist Georgia Cracker can never win - america is way too smart to elect this clown to anything.

Bye Neuter .....

2 of the DUMBEST states in the country!

Alabama and Mississippi Republicans don't believe in evolution ... but do believe Obama is a Muslim

Thank you for your response. You say America is way too smart. Well, if you are part of that America, I can see what you use your "smarts" for........name calling, foul language and accusations. My goodness, if I was running for President of the United States, I would be soooo proud to have you vote for me.

I understand the President Obama / Muslim / Christian part of your post, but why does it make people stupid if they don't believe in evolution?
I happen to believe both creation and evolution joined together. We don't know God's ways. If He wanted to create us through evolution, He certainly could.

Smart people believe science, not beliefs.

If you want to believe there is a guy in the sky and he could 'create us through evolution' then he certainly allow science to validate that belief.

Edit: then he COULD certainly allow science to validate that belief. It certainly would help the sycophants to understand god's way.

Please explain. Are you actually saying that if one has faith, believes in God, then they are stupid? Do you actually mean that?

"Gingrich: I think we need to reconsider the whole region. We need to understand that our being in the middle of countries like Afghanistan is probably counterproductive."

Sounds like he is coming around to Ron Paul's foreign policy position, but Ron Has been saying it for ten years. It took Newt 10 years to come to the conclusion that the war is not worth the cost.

Is there any question as to why Ron Paul receives the most military contributions from active military?

I like Newt because his name is Newt, imagine we call him president Newt. I will vote for Newt because he represents all of us seniors, old fat wrinkled with a more than ample beer gut and unhealthy looking. His wife looks great and beautiful, a bit plasticky like a stepfords wives. I would be depressed if my US president looks slim, handsome, dapper and vital; old looking like a grandpa is best.
Amen!!! I agree -- I agree -- I agree!
Mr. Gingrich is so very intelligent, knowledgeable - it would be a shame to let all that knowledge go without making use of it for the good of our country. He is also much more "settled" than he was 15-20 years ago. He is now, as you said, a grandpa - but a grandpa who cares deeply about his country.

VOTE for NEWT GINGRICH!!!

As Dr. Sheldon Cooper would say:
"Oh, the horror!" (of 4 more years of the current administration.)

Mr. Gingrich is very intelligent and knowledgeable. He will lead this country into prosperity --$2.50 per gallon gasoline.

VOTE for NEWT GINGRICH!!!

Oh right, split the Republican vote so much that President Obama is reelected. I think not.
