    By electing Newt Gingrich as the Republican nominee they are basically appointing a repeat performance by the president.

    C'mon folks....you know how politics works and you still want to run Newt LOL!

    I think Cammpy is having a 'senior moment'. Be kind to him. The nurse will be along shortly with his meds.

    It's either a senior moment or he's already into the Vodka.

    Why is that an either/or?

    FWIW, no one thought Reagan could win either. He was seen as too radical, and an actor.
    Of course then the press wasn't altogether kind to Carter and we still had some semblence of journalistic objectivity.

    I'd have to disagree here. They don't "want" to run Newt. If they were to be honest, they would admit that there's a long list of people they'd rather see on the ballot. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, those people have chosen to stay out. He, or the whomever the nominee is, will supposedly be The One they want to run.

    So, the spin will be that (insert name of nominee here) is a great candidate who will easily beat Obama and lead America into the promised land, something like that. Partisans on both ends are intellectually dishonest on a consistent basis, and this will be a vivid illustration of that fact.

    As a conservative, I really should not find this funny... and of course, Art15 is an evil demon... but... funny is funny.

    Well, first of all, Newt hasn't been nominated yet to run as the sole Repo candidate. And, if he is , he will have to make his case and let the chips fall where they fall. I really don't understand the "sure thing" kind of arguing that someone argues that someone is else is a "sure thing". I don't see the point. And, in reality, nobody is a sure thing and nothing is inevitable. You fight the odds and sometimes you win and sometimes you don't. Obama could decide to resign, die, move or get beat by Newt or some yet unknown person who rises to the top or who knows? Nobody knows until you play the game.
