    It's hilarious because Newt likes to compare himself to Reagan when the GOP establishment was attacking Reagan. But for a so-called historian Newt has a pretty selective memory considering he went out of his way to very vocally attack Reagan at the time throughout Reagan's administration.

    Right after someone lets him know he won’t be the nominee.

    I've never understood why Newt seems to think he can paint himself as the outsider when he is the ultimate Washington insider.

    The only person who hasnt been a Washington politician is Romney.

    Great speech. He sounded like a winner and a conservative winner at that.

    Be careful what you vote for. Last thing we need is a dishonest corporate raider in the Oval Office.

    He won't be elected for just that reason - his dishonesty. Well, and that other reason - people aren't so dumb as to vote THAT far against their own best interests.

    Romney may be the nominee and he may be our next President.

    I hope that if he is, it will be a blessing to this nation and not a curse like this President has been.

    How are corporate raiders dishonest?
    They asked his company to buy their company.
    Romney raided Staples and took them from a 1 store company to over 2000.
    I assume you think that is a bad thing.

    The lie that business is evil is pervasive in our culture. We need to counteract that with the truth. There is nothing wrong with business. In fact, getting rich by providing goods and services to our fellow man is a very good thing.
