    Obama is too godamn young to be re-elected.

    Regan was two years older when he got elected.

    We need old and wise, not young and stupid.

    Having said that, Romney will be the nominee.

    You got that right...This is the one office that being older and having a deeper understanding is a good thing.

    The overwelming amount of factors you included in your op has convinced me.

    Considering how drastically the office can age even a young man it is debatable how wise it is to have a geriatric president. Age is not an automatic sign of wisdom, there is no fool like an old fool.

    George Washington wasn't young
    Reagan wasn't young
    Fdr surely wasn't young

    Obama screwed up the economy even more and he is a young. :eek:

    Newt is 68

    Mitt is 64

    Romney can't get Republicans to support him, much less anyone else.

    Agreed. Its not necessarily age, but judgement. Gingrich has a warped view of government. I can see him as an adviser not the decider. The problem is that unless one party has a super-majority nothing can happen, and I generally like gridlock.

    Chris Matthews had a very whiny critique' today on Newt. If MSNBC whines about FXN it should look at its becoming a democrat propaganda outlet. At least FXN presents both sides.

    Exactly. That's why the left keep pumping his candidacy and you hear almost no one on the right advocating him.

    Newt doesn't have the temperament to be President. He's a hot head just like McCain used to be.
