    It could pay off for Newt

    Other than Iowa which is full of nut jobs, most of the early primary states have real republicans

    He knows that it isn't the whack-a-loons/wing-nuts that'll help him in the General election. You have to get a lot of Independents.

    Absolutely correct!! It is doubtful any republicans will be voting for Obama. the name of the game is independents. the candidate in the general who has the most independent voters wins. independents tend to be center-right but certainly not loony right. And they are sick and tired of Obamanics!! Newt is the smartest guy in the room.

    I think Newt is playing the liberal media..

    He picks the issue and their forced to show outrage at something they agree with, they look foolish.

    and he ends up looking like a reasonable conservative to the independents.

    It's called politics..

    Winning a debate is a bad thing because the DNC has lots of money to play with. Oh, and it gives the msm a new target
