    Think Progress Rove on Gingrich running for president: ‘There’s a question of his discipline.’

    Rove on Gingrich running for president: ‘There’s a question of his discipline.’

    Newt Gingrich has been hinting for over a year that he is thinking about running for president. Yesterday in Iowa, the former GOP House speaker indicated that he is seriously considering seeking the GOP presidential nomination in 2012. “I’ve never been this serious,” he said, adding, “It’s fair to say that by February the groundwork will have been laid to consider seriously whether or not to run.” However, last night on Fox News, Karl Rove didn’t seem too high on that possibility:

    GRETA VAN SUSTEREN: His strength and his weakness going into getting the nomination?

    ROVE: He has vision, and there’s a question of his discipline. When he was Speaker of the House, he had the vision to — as a Republican leader, to get us into the majority and the vision to sort of give people the big picture to go after. The question was sometimes whether — how consistent he was in keeping people focused on those — on that vision.

    That'd be awesome.

    I like Newt. It certainly would be entertaining.

    Now let's hope Sarah Palin throws her hat into the ring as well.

    Newt is famous for announcing that he might run. How many times is this now?

    Newt is maneuvering to get Michael Steele's job. I can see what he is doing.

    Gingrich vs Obama, 2012? Here are the campaign slogans:

    Gingrish: "I'm Not Obama 2012" , "Not Barack 2012"

    Obama: "Whoa Is Me 2012" , "Remember Bush 2012"
