    Newt as the nominee will guarentee four more years of Obama. The Dems are cracking up over all this. They know that Romney is Obama’s toughest foe. They feel they can destroy Gingrich and they are right.

    What is going on with our party. It is now evil to make something of yourself and become rich? Newt has embraced the bash the successful and class warfare in his unabashed ambition to be President.

    Since when is it a campaign issue if one of the candidates earns money from his investments and pays capital gains.

    If you know anything about the tax code Romney first earned the income from Bain Capital and paid ordinary income on it, invested it and now pays capitial gains on those investments at 15 percent. Therefore he first paid income tax on it and now pays capital gains on those some funds that he invested.

    If I remember Newt resigned as speaker in disgrace and has so many worts that Mike Dukakis could beat him.

    Romney is the only cadidate that is running a true Presidential Campaign, he is the only candidate that is electable and the only one that stands a chance against Obama. Even with all that, I fear we are in for four more years of irrepairable damage of an Obama adminsitration.

    When did it become a crime to embrace capitalism. Romney is a Capitalist plain and simple. This is why I became a Republican in the first place during the 80’s.

    Wake up people all you Newt supporters are playing right into the Dems hands.

    Romney was stuck around 25%. That’s what happened in Iowa and he didn’t do much better than that in South Carolina, EVEN WITH a smaller field.

    Romney lost ALL demographics EXCEPT for income levels over $200K. That includes married woman.

    And, if you don’t think that the Democrats would bring up Bain, I have a bridge to sell you because Edward Kennedy brought it up in their Senate Campaign.

    Do you see any major personal attack campaign on Romney from the media? (the Bain thing came from Gingrich). No! They took care of Bachmann from the beginning, then Cain when he became the frontrunner, and now Gingrich. They’re leaving Romney alone because they WANT him to be the nominee, and will viciously attack him later in the summer. It’s the same thing that happened with McCain (remember, New York Times even endorsed him!)

    I don’t want a manager I want a leader. I don’t want someone who lacks the true courage of their convictions. I don’t want someone who’s afraid to state what they truly believe and feel. I don’t want someone who is neither warm or cold. I want Newt Gingrich!

    Interesting Note From The South Carolina Exit Polls…

    BY FAR, the voters felt Romney and Paul had the nastiest campaigns. Only 6% of voters thought Newt’s was nasty.

  6. That's because, said at 6:32 pm on January 23rd, 2012:

    they WANT the weaker Mitt to run against: he’s the perfect poster child for flip-flopping, for the class- warfare argument they are ramming down our throats each day as the worst of the “rich”, and, Mitt’s religion will go trashingly-viral, soon as he’s nominated, as some kind of crazy cult, he secretly has many wives, blah blah, with all sorts of denials from the White House that they have no part it it, which they always do, when lashing out.. and, the famous Romneycare is just what they need, to negate the whole single-payer, personal- mandate issue, thereby letting them get away with Obamacare, which has already started ruining healthcare in this country..think more, Mitt’s being left alone just long enough to get all their arguments in place, just watch.. Newt has started taking all the elites on, and won’t back down: he may be flawed, but he’s exactly what they don’t want to tangle with this year, they are wrong and leftists, but aren’t stupid: they know just how pissed the taxpayers are, and, how they may just be frustrated enough to go for one as dominant/fearless/unconventional as Newt!..look, HE TERRIFIES THEM MORE THAN HE OUGHT TO TERRIFY THINKING R’S AND I’S!!.. so, I’m very willing to put them off their gameplan, right now!- it worked for the “extreme” Reagan, and it can work this time, too- CLEAR choice, not muddled shades of gray, are a must now, if the Republic has any chance to survive….

    Afetr watching Mitt Romney I’ve come to the conclusion that Romney went to the Doug Forrester School for Candidates, and we know what happened to “Done Deal” Forrester.

  8. JerryW45 said at 8:56 pm on January 23rd, 2012:

    Mark Levin chewed into our Governor’s backside this even on his show about the Governor’s ethics attack on Newt.

    If I find the content, I will find a way to post it; but I will take Levin’s judicial experiences in these areas over the Gov’s anytime.

    Levin was also “there” during those times, where as the Governor has not.

    Chris needs to watch himself. If Mitt gets the nomination and LOSES, it might backfire on Chris.

    I think the Gov needs to be paying more attention to our issues than the national stage. Doing that will enhance his credentials for later on.

    Go Romney chairman Joe Kyrillos great pick. Keep working in Florida for Romney while NJ is unemployed and homes are foreclosing.
