    Lately, I have become kind of fearful that Newt maybe setting the stage to run as a third party candidate for the Presidentcy.

    That is right:I said Newt, as in Newt Gingrich. Why?

    1) He has a strong populist appeal
    2)He has a really really big ego
    3)I think He might forget the main goal here(Defeat Obama)
    4)Liberals would love to have him destroy the Republican ticket.


    Of course, there is talk about Ron Paul, but Ron Paul only have point 1 and is a bit kooky. Not Gingrich! Gingrich might think he can win due to Obamas unpopularity and Romneys lack of charisma.

    Think about it, If you gave Gingrich 6 more months on the stump, he might win all the delegates through speech giving.

    Scary thought, is it not?

    Because you didn't add "none of the above". That would have been my vote as I suspect it would be for many others.
