    Now that he is a co-favorite they are all excorcised.

    Means they would rather see Romney face Obama than Gingrich.

    Well, now that he's a threat they have to get rid of him....

    Think back to the first election the current administration ever won.....
    Obama played hardball in first Chicago campaign - CNN

    Why would the media pay attention to Ntew when he was at 1-4%... He pretty much jumped to #1 in like 3 days...

    No....it just means that at 8% he just wasn't a candidate to take seriously. Who's going to waste attention on an 8 percenter?

    Now he's in the top tier....the spot light is on him and the left (conveniently remembers) and the right (conveniently forgets) that this dude is a bombastic, ethically challenged, thrice married adulterer with a penchant for shooting his campaign in the foot. Ohhh what a great choice for the Party of Morality, God and Family values. Certainly much better than a man who has been married to the same woman faithfully for years, has no affairs or scandals on his coat-tails, and is a faithful church-goer. What irony:D

    Seriously though - a general election, a race between Romney and Obama could be very close. Romney is much more likely to be able to attract independents and those from the center than Gingrich. Gingrich may be the darling of the right this week, but that doesn't translate into electable in a general election.

    That's because they believed Republicans wouldn't be stupid enough to nominate him. Now nomination seems likely and the presidency a possibility, they are certainly concerned as everyone should be.

    One thing Newt supporters don't have to worry is skeletons in his closet. They are in the headlines and have been for many years.

    Newt's not a threat. I hope he wins the nomination, Obama will crush him. It will be Harding vs. Cox all over again.
