    Why is Newt so angry?

 I’m just a political layperson watching these debates for entertainment purposes (I know most of what they promise will never happen) but why does Newt get so hot and angry when he knows everyone is watching?  He seems very smart and able to evade the questions asked with the result people cheering….doesn’t someone tell him to remain calm?  or is that the temperment people want in a President when a President is under pressure?

    Newt

Everyone has an opinion including me.  Many years ago Newt taught a college class that was taped and sold as a set.  A friend of mine bought them and I watched three of them.  Very impressive.  What made him intense in those tapes was the unbelievable distance we have fallen from what America is supposed to be about.  Where political correctness taken to the absurd, out of control spending,  out of control regulation, and  a host of other problems has turned the country into a disaster.  And, it is far far worse now than it was back then.  I believe that I will vote for him in the NJ primary and if he makes to the general election I will vote for him again.  While he may not be perfect, he does seem to want to make an honest stab at trying to correct at least some of the huge mistakes we have made since WW2.  We have become a welfare/warfare state full of statists and it will be the end of us unless we take action now.  It may already be too late and we are doomed to tryanny no matter what we do.  I do know that Obama will be voted out no matter what lies and twisted truths are told in the main stream media as the election gets closer.  The 2010 midterm election was the start.  There have been a number of off cycle elections for giovernors and such and the sum total of the 2010 election and the off cycle elections makes clear that there has been a wake up call across the land.  Honest hard folks, the silent majority, have started paying attention and they do not like what they see.  No amount of money or advertising will change people’s minds if their decisions are based on principle.  There actually is a difference between right and wrong.

    Newt is not even on the

Newt is not even on the ballot in all 50 states. He is not able to collect over some 500 delegates. If he was actually serious about running don’t you think he would have crossed his T’s and dotted his I’s. He is just out there promoting himself. There are only 2 candidates that are on all 50 ballots. Romney and Ron Paul. Romney is in it for power and popularity. Paul is trying to start a movement. rEVOLution2012 to save America

Wow, you’re right.  I wonder what will happen when some of those big states come up….  They say he’s not on Virginia, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee and Illinois, that’s 564 delegates he can’t get, same with Santorum.  Paul is on all of them.  In 4 years I’ll bet Newt takes care of this.

    “We Had A Food Drive At First Baptist Church…”

This is from an article on CNN.com:

Newly Recovered Court Files Cast Doubt On Gingrich Version Of First Divorce (December 27, 2011)

Leonard H. ‘Kip’ Carter, a former close Gingrich friend, backed the contention that it was Newt Gingrich who wanted the divorce.

‘He (Gingrich) said, “You know and I know that she’s not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of a president,”‘ Carter, who now lives in South Carolina, told CNN recently, relating the conversation he had with Gingrich the day Gingrich revealed he was filing for divorce. Carter served as treasurer of Gingrich’s first congressional campaigns.

Carter, who was a fellow history professor when Gingrich taught at West Georgia College in Carrollton, said he broke off his friendship with Newt Gingrich because of the congressman’s treatment of his wife during the divorce.

—–

When [first wife] Jackie Gingrich and her daughters moved from their other home in Fairfax, Virginia, back to their house in Carrollton, Georgia, there were ‘no lights, no heat, no water, no food in the home,’ former Gingrich friend and academic colleague Carter said.

Carter, who helped collect donations for the family, said Gingrich “wouldn’t give them a dime” in the first months of the separation.

“‘We had a food drive at First Baptist Church,’ Carter said. ‘The deacons went down and stocked her pantry.’

Johnson, the former state legislator who was in Gingrich’s Sunday school class, said when the church’s minister asked him to donate money, he gave $100 to the fund.

A judge ordered Gingrich to appear in court a week after his wife filed her complaint. The result was a ruling that he bring the utility bills up to date and begin paying his wife $700 a month in temporary support until the case was settled.

    Gingrich on Jon Stewart

This video made me LMAO. It also made me want to punch Gingrich in his fat f-ing face.

Highly improbable.  If we had a decent choice, he would be but we don’t and he won’t.  And even if by some miracle, Ron Paul were to get in (which he won’t), TPTB would allow the economy to sink OR stonewall everything he does OR physically ensure he would be incapable of continuing as POTUS.

We’re screwed.

    Ron Paul versus Barack Obama

My wife, who is liberal/progressive, told me she’s likely to vote for Ron Paul if he wins the GOP nomination – particularly because of his anti-war and liberty stances. But if it’s a contest between another GOP nominee like Romney or Gingrich or Santorum versus Barack Obama, she will vote for Barack Obama.

Therefore, I suspect if Ron Paul won the nomination, many Republicans would vote for Paul, anyway because they wouldn’t vote for Obama… And Ron Paul would draw many progressives and independents.

That said, I suspect a lot of Wall Street, corporate, and establishment Republicans would vote for Obama rather than Ron Paul, if the contest came down to the two.

    Thanks Zeroenergy21, that was hilarious!!!

Though Jon Stewart is a self-described socialist one can not deny his comedic genius! He has great writers on that show and incredible timing. I can’t get over how well he delivered some of those jokes and punchlines. Brilliant!!!

It does not hurt that I can’t stand that cheating, corrupt, fat Washington insider Gingrich either.
