    I am getting a little--tired like most of you are. We're not supposed to like Newt Gingrich--because he made some "personal" mistakes--and a couple of bad adds.

    BUT THIS DUDD-Gingrich-has been freakin kicking ass on Perry and Romney and EVERYONE ELSE since the DEBATES BEGAN.

    WTF are you people doing?

    I think that Newt is awsome at one thing. That is government. The guy can get stuff accomplished and that is no joke. However I do not think he is very constitutional, nore is he fiscally sound.

    For that he should make a fine Vice President supporting Ron Paul.

    My first choice would be Newt because he'd clean Obama's clock, Cain second....because he'd do the same....but nether is electable.

    So my choice is still Rick Perry even though he's not the most polished debater.

    Well, we've been dealing with polished and look what it got us.

    Mitt is too nervous and he's all over the place. I don't really know what he stands for.

    No, the personal issues is a media contrivance, having to do with ratings.

    Opposition to Gingrich is predicated on the fact he’s wrong on the bulk of the issues and he’d be a dreadful president accordingly. The same is true of Romney, it has nothing to do with being a Mormon. And the same goes for Perry, he’s just wrong on the issues, it has nothing to do with Perry being a corrupt politician.

    Don’t forget Ron Paul who.

    Newt has had my attention as a brilliant candidate, since this whole thing began, but I have been prepared to have my mind changed by another "newer" candidate, however that person has not come forth, though my mind has really stayed opened and looking.

    I see Newt as a stong leader, much more so than the rest. He has it far over the rest of them, whom I also like but feel less impressed with than with Newt! :) If he is not electable, then even though I love Cain, he is not electable either, so I would have to go "purple" and that would be with Romney, who I was rooting for as the nominee in the `08 election...:lol:

    Newt is the smartest and most aware of the group. He even warned against the wisdom of invading Iraq, right along with George Will and others smart conservatives. They were right then, they are just as right now.

    But why not Newt? Because he is a ticking bomb that goes off every so often. His character is as flawed as Bill Clinton, his arch rival, yet he is not as adroit as Wild Bill.

    I predict Newt will endorse Perry, which wil be key to Perry's victory.

    Newt would be great as president, but it ain't happening..
