    I think Newt did a great job in the debates last night. I'd say he was the winner. What say you?

    Didn't watch it and dont' care what eye-of-Newt has to say. He'd never get my vote, he's a cheater. If he'd cheat on his wife, he'd cheat on anything. He lost all trust from me, just like Billy 'I did not have sex' Clinton.

    I liked some of the responses that Newt had, but a winner? I think not.
    Honestly, I didn't see any of them coming off as the 'winner'. Checking out my usual news websites, I'd say it was a mixed bag.

    He stuck it to those Fox News people for their "gotcha" questions. It really fired up the crowd because they were stupid questions. As if anyone cares about Newt's staff getting fired/quiting. He also attacked the 'Super-Congress' saying it was a dumb idea.

    Although he was good, he still just doesn't come off as a Presidential type.

    I had totally written Newt off. Wasn't even paying attention to him until he started answering the questions.

    He surprised the hell out of me and I will definetly be watching him in the upcoming debates.

    Unless he's a serial rapist, murder or bank robber I could care about his personal life. JMO

    Was that directed at me? If so, try quoting then asking. If not, then never mind.

    To answer your question . . . I don't have a stockbroker and I don't have a mortgage.

    Do I want the leader of our country to be a faithful individual? You better believe it. Speaks to his character.
