    What is it about Newt which appeals to so many who call themselves conservatives?

    Is it any of his positions? Has he made it seem that he has overcome his past problems with integrity and self-discipline? Is it just/mostly how he debates? ???

    Its his toughness. We need someone who actually gets votes on a Budget that they put up.

    I'm no Newt fan, but the guy has a few good ideas occasionally.

    He's too old at 68, he's way too fat. He might win a state or two, but he can't piss in the tall weeds with the big dogs. He has no character, no energy, and not enough money. Obama and the MSM would make a monkey out of him.

    I have said this before...
    I will vote for Mitt if he is the nominee and hate it probably...
    I would rather vote for Newt and be happy that we went down fighting.
    Of course I want to win back the WH with anyone but Obama.

    OOOOoooops...

    I guess I'm being a racist again. :lol:

    Really, he won't... What is he gonna do Gramps, call Obama the food stamp President to his face, or maybe tell him he is the most dangerous President in our countries history?

    Do you have any idea how childish Newt makes the Republican party look at all? He is calling people names and talking shit to people for doing thing that he did or having policies that he supported. Newt will get destroyed if he gets the nomination. Newt scares independents and even inspires Dems to vote against him.

    Get a clue man.

    So, it's about the debates. I knew that.

    But I'm still curious ... if it weren't for his gift of gab ... why would a conservative be interested in him?

    The Contract with America that got the GOP control of Congress for the first time in 40-years.

    Contract with America - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It was a time that led to the only Budget surplus in modern history

    I'm sorry, but I will absolutely NEVER... EVER... EVER... get over this...

    The fact is with all the talk of Mitt being a flip-flopper he hasn't gone THIS far.

    This is just stupid.

    So childish that he gets standing ovations and gratuitous applause after nearly every answer? He has fire and drive. The very thing that our party has lacked for years. Newt would provide a good challenge for the whitehouse. Newt would destroy Obama in a debate.

    Ps. Paul puts people to sleep with his meandering non answers. THAT is the laughing stock of our party. Pauls solutions are so simplistic and repetitive its like watching reruns of I love Lucy.
