    Lol...he's so smart, I think he's a shoo-in...not saying I love him, he's not a good conservative, but I think he's figured out how to manage the people and the press:

    "
    Mr. Gingrich, a former House speaker, on Tuesday morning threatened not participate in any future debates with audiences that have been instructed to be silent. That was the case on Monday, when Brian Williams of NBC News asked the audience of about 500 people who assembled for a debate in Tampa to hold their applause until the commercial breaks."

    Hold their applause...a nice way to effectively *silence* the appearance of support for an un-fave of the lib mob...

    He's a coward because he wants the audience to be able to respond? If he was a coward, you'd think he'd be worried about that.

    The cowards are the liberal mob, who want to prevent people from participating in the debates by showing their support.

    He's a coward because he doesn't want to answer questions. He just wants to attack the press and have a rabid mob cheering him on.

    Pffft...that's funny.

    I'm trying to figure out how you got that from him not wanting the audience stifled, then I realized..you're just making shit up.

    Newt wants decorum, except when he doesn't.

    All part of the full metal jacketed hypocrisy package.

    He won't skip them. NBC will do an about face. They don't want to lose him.

    The audience is his shield from the media's questions.

    You're right, he's smart. But he's also transparent.

    And a coward that doesn't want to answer questions.

    Lets hope CNN asks the audience to just listen rather than act like a mob.
