    Romney is no conservative and should be discarded. (My God! Did anyone expect a governor of Massachusetts to come across as a conservative? Romney is a RINO.)

    Santorum is my second choice right now behind Newt.

    Newt would eat Obama's lunch in a heads up debate. Santorum would implode.

    Really? All Newt has is a bunch of petty insults and playing the victim card.

    Gonna be fun to watch him stay in though..........it's gonna tear the GOP apart.

    Newt's never been serious. But he is pissed. Look for Newt's Kamikaze attacks to continue.

    Man..it's great.

    Santorum is a much bigger threat to Romney than Newt is. Newt's out already. He just doesnt realize it.

    You know...........if you would have told me that the news was gonna look like Comedy Central because of the 2012 election around 3 years ago, I would have said you were nuts.

    Looks like I was wrong. Watching the news and the way these yahoos are acting in the GOP is almost like watching a full hour of Jon Stewart.

    :D That is EXACTLY what I am thinking. If there is no dirt out there on Mitt or Rick right now, just wait until Newt is finished. The man is as vindictive as anyone that I have seen. When he gets the money for his PAC, he will be turning the wolves loose.

    As for the notion that he can defeat Obama in a debate. I really think he would do fairly well, but he will never get that far. I think AB said it all when he said he was going to "tear the GOP apart. I see Newt rising again, Santorum disappearing, and a very bloody Mitt Romney winning the GOP nod.

    But by that time, Newt will have thrown dirt all over Mitt and his magic underwear. :clap2:

    Extremist may win the GOP nod, but not the general.

    Where is it written a republican must be ‘conservative’? Or the party’s nominee must be, for that matter? Romney’s a republican, he has every right to run for the nomination and represent the GOP if that’s the wish of the majority.
