    The failure to get on the Virginia ballot was appalling. He didn't try to get on the Missouri ballot. These are elementary strategies for a candidate to accomplish of they are going to be a viable candidate.

    This is a brilliant man with a great resume and thinks outside the box for solutions. But for a while now, we find that some Republicans cannot get behind him for vague reasons and quite honestly, his mouth sometimes shoots himself in the foot. Equating Pearl Harbor with the fact he didn't get on the ballot in Virginia was a bonehead statement from one expected to be leader of our country.

    Early on, there was friction with his organizing campaign and they all quit. So, that was campaign stuff, I thought. But now, I think if the man cannot work closely with those around him, can he effectively be president? It's too bad. He's obviously the brightest of the candidates and can debate rings around anyone else. But is that enough?

    I think we should all just forget about Ol Newt's past and make him the nominee.

    My second look at him back in '95 was enough.

    He's a fascist dickweed, who couldn't even garner the support of his own party's caucus in congress, inside of 24 months of his ascent to the Speaker's role.

    He makes Romney look like Goldwater in comparison.

    The guy wrote the foreword for a book detailing how the US is shifting into something called the 3rd wave of politics, where the constitution and and sovereign nations are obsolete.

    That's not scary at all :rolleyes:

    I did - do too. But my question is... will he listen to ideas of others? We have a president who refused to go with any agenda other than his own and look where it got us.iven. He can win against Obama in any debate. That is a given. Is he the leader that will not shoot off his mouth without thinking? If another idea comes in contrary to his own, will he give it the credence it deserves while considering it?

    What did you think of Gingrich's criticism of Paul Ryan's budget plan? One comment he had to apologize for?

    Why would Newt have to work with anyone if President, he would just toss em in jail or some other fucked up bullshit and demand he gets his way...

    Newt is so smart that he accidently says some of the stupid shit I have ever heard.

    As another posters said, Newt wants to re-write the constitution… Annnnnd does he give details about how he think the constitution would look after he re-writes it lol? Maybe if Newt is President we'll be lucky and find out then!
