Gringrich is very smart, it is when he is very STUPID that scares me.
As when he:
– voted to create the Dept of Education for Pres Carter!
– voted to put 68 Million ares of Alaskan land under Federal “protection”
– supported LIBERAL Repub Dede Scozzafava in 2009 instead of the conservative candidate
– supports the global warming FRAUD by supporting the wasteful debacle of ethanol subsidizes.
– campaigns on spending billions to cure Alzheimer to buy votes and ignores the limitations of the Constitution like a leftist.
– called Paul Ryan’s Path to Prosperity a “radical” plan that amounted to “right-wing social engineering”
– on health care; “He would require Americans over a certain income level to buy health insurance or post a bond.”
– cozies up with leftists; Pelozi, Huffington & Sharpton

Romney or Newt, from a conservative stand point, hard to know which is worse.

    saralee…just who do you like? You seem easily swayed by the liberal media attacks.

    You have it way wrong on Newt. American women in general are far more perceptive than you and far more forgiving of a man who has been humbled through experience. I believe the same is true about conservatives and independents in general too.

    So yes Newt can win a general election. Remember this is Obama he would be running against. The contrast would be so striking that even blue dog democrats would flock to Newt over the empty suit we are stuck with now.

    As 75% of the Republican vote still dislikes Romney, he probably has more problems in a general election because true conservative are tired of holding their noses and voting for Rino’s and liberal Republicans.

    I agree with Ann Coulter. Romney is the one who is poised to beat Obama. Romney is more conservative than Gingrich,Perry and Huntsman. Cain is a blank slate with zero foreign policy experience and I like Paul for his domestic policy but his foreign policy is scary. Santorum and Bachman are probably the most conservative but they would not win the general election. So I do not want four more years of Obama so I am going with the best bet to beat Obama and that is Romney.

    Oh and Romney’s alleged flip flops are nothing compared to Obama’s or Gingrich”s flip flops for that matter. Romney could create a very effective ad campaign on Obama’s flip flops and Obama’s flip flops are very recent like within the past 3 years verses Romney’s from the 90’s when he ran against Kennedy. Romney could easily neutralize that issue along with the healthcare mandate. Romneycare is nothing like Obamacare and Romney could successfully debate that point.

    One more point. 75% of the electorate does not dislike Romney. Many people are just starting to tune in to the elections.

    I do think there is a coordinated effort by the extreme right along with the Obama campaign to destroy the chance for a Romney GOP nomination which makes me want to vote for Romney even more so. I truly think both the far right media types and the Obama media want 4 more years of Obama.The far right media’s ratings have never been better than under and Obama presidency.

    I do not believe any white guy or two white guys can win this election. Any one of them must add the gender and or ethnic element to it. If Newt would come forth and indicate that his VP were going to be a woman and or a woman of color the race would be over. If he stated for example that he was selecting (and it was accepted) Star Parker as Vice President running mate—how could that team not win? With her you get added brilliance, added knowledge, added experience, added American (Real American) history, added “Mom” and family personage, added true conservativism. Also someone the press could not attack very easily (of course they will try but she will have too many defenders). This is the best of win-win situation for all of America. Newt must have gender and or ethnicity added to his campaign to win.

    Play nice! Do you want Obama to have another 4 years?

    Support your candidate and avoid degrading the other candidates’ qualities.

    Both remember and follow Ronald Reagan’s Eleventh Commandment:

    “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”

  • zsuzi on November 15, 2011 6:39 pm

    newt cannot win, therefore, unelectable. why, because the country has seen that old movie and they want new.

    let’s stick w/romney. safe.

  • GA on November 15, 2011 6:41 pm

    saralee…you said, “Romney is more conservative than Gingrich,Perry and Huntsman.”

    That just shows you know next to nothing about Gingrich and Perry(or refuse to see). Just as you refused for days to learn or acknowledge anything about Cain, you seem bent on ignoring copius amounts of information available on these two candidates who are both FAR MORE CONSERVATIVE that your choice. But never mind, you have shown over the weeks you don’t like to let facts get in the way of your biases.

    As for Huntsman, well he should be in the Democrat primary.

    Sorry Romney may be the party nominee, but he won’t ever be the 1st choice of conservatives…you better pray the Tea Party doesn’t bolt if he becomes the nominee or Obama will easily win.

  • saralee on November 15, 2011 8:34 pm


    Lat me enlighten you. Check out this Youtube video entitled the “Real Newt”-it is 33 minutes long and it doesn’t even talk about his lack of discipline in his personal life.

    Newt is a Washington insider,a lobbyist,a career politician and academic. Newt really has no experience in restructuring companies in a global market and creating jobs in the private sector.

  • ssbritt on November 15, 2011 9:35 pm

    Romney is also a no-go…People don’t let the press determine our nominee…We need an anti-establishment nominee that will attack the media and their opponent(OBAMA)…Newt could be like McLame was toward Obama…Play nice…If it aint Cain, I’ll go third party with maybe Trump..

  • mperoni101 on November 15, 2011 11:39 pm


    Are you a woman? Do you actually know how women really think and how forgiving they are? If so, prove it.

    Perry used to be a Gore democrat, and he is as soft of whip cream on illegal immigration. It was Rove and GW Bush to convince him to switch parties. He also made a government decision, an executive order, with the vaccine on 12 year old girls. Big government. He also has a conservative legislature all across the board, so I think even you would make a good Texas governor.

    If any conservative refuses to vote for Romney, if he wins the nomination, and this goes to the Tea Pariters out there, then it would be just like voting for Obama. I’d consider them traitors, unpatriotic, and hoping they won’t vote again. It would be ridiculous.

    And by the way, saralee mentions facts, you never do. You accuse, and you don’t provide any kind of evidence anyway so I would not talk too much about such if I were you.

    Zsuzi… You want new? Well…that is what Obama promised and now we have it, “change” ….IN OUR POCKETS!

    I concur!!
    Newt will absolutely mop the floor with obama! I would absolutely love to see obama debate Newt on any government issue. Just the two of them, no help for obama, no teleprompter, no writers. just brain pan against brain pan! The embarrassment to the obama worshipers would be worth a million in cash tax free! And I live far below the poverty level. and i still don’t use food stamps, medicare, or any government handouts. i live on my absolutely ridiculous check from my injury. And i raise a 16 yr old daughter. I cannot cut anymore corners. but yes i would love to see Newt debate obama!!! 🙂
