    obama is the most narcissistic man to ever be in the public eye.

    Well maybe John Edwards gives a good run.

    As an internet statistician I can confirm with authority that 98% of all politicians are in love with themselves.

    Newt's sense of confidence should not be confused with self-love, in my opinion.

    Forgive me for the non sequitur, but that is one evil looking expression on his face.

    He's earned his bad reputation. And it seems like he thinks he can do whatever he pleases. Forget, for the moment, that he's been a disgrace as a husband to two different women. After leaving Congress, he sold inside access to the highest bidders and then insults everyone's intelligence by saying that he got paid millions of dollars offering historical advice? He just doesn't seem to think he can be touched.

    Who is stupid enough to buy Newt's explanations you might ask. The answer is the GOP base. And why? It's because they've been amped up on over-the-top rhetoric coming from talk radio and reality TV for years, and THAT is what they want to hear. Newt doesn't just serve it up with a spoon. He throws it out with a ladle. And they love him for it.

    If anyone wants to know what would happen if Newt was elected, all they have to do is review the years when he was Speaker because the members of his own party hated him.

    I suspect his ego will cause him to crash and burn - because he can't control it.

    Cons confuse bullying and ego with strong leadership.
