    The answer's really very simple - each mention of his name sends a subliminal message which cannot be ignored or overridden by actualities.

    People hear/read "Newt" and they automatically associated it with "Fig Newtons," which leads the brain of the average conservative to "Fig leaf" which, in turn, takes them directly to the Garden of Eden.

    Newt Gingrich then becomes a man of biblical proportion.

    How can you not like him?

    He's god-sent.

    I like him because of his ideas... but would never vote for him.

    Yup. For the reasons people mentioned before, he's lost his integrity but is still is fun to listen to. More like a commentator now in my mind than a politician.

    As a politician I would think that would cause him to be disliked, but khayos, your comment re. finding him fun / commentator-like makes sense. Got it.

    I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit, he & and Callista produced and are narrating a film called "Nine Days that Changed the World"... a documentary about Pope John Paul II going back to Poland... WTF it is a Gingrich and Citizen United Production.

    No wonder the Catholic Church is completely f...ed up.. this guy is the ultimate philanderer, the world's greatest whore monger and somehow makes a film about John Paul II, complete with Catholic Church Advisors and now is going to places like Notre Dame and Harvard to host the screeenings...

    Slimeball, Dirtbag, Fornicator, Scumbag, Bastard, Lying Pig that captivates people when they speak.

    Perfect qualifactions to be a top notch Washington Politician, Politics is loaded with them, Gingrich is a POLITICIAN.

    I love how the subject of this topic is that we righties hold Newt in "high esteem" but I don't think one of us actually holds him as such.

    Exactly, I know I don't, but I agree with a lot of the things "he says"

    I thought Bill Clinton was a conniving, lying, slick, immoral, back room stinking politician but I also agreed with many, many things "he said"

    Partisian Loons Can't Comprehend That, It's Impossible For Them To Understand.

    If I say "I like what Newt says" they think I'm in love with the man (or they will try to spin it to that affect)

    But he speaks at many Conservative events, is a news commentator on fox news and is head of several right wing organizations.. a common sense person would think that he is held in self esteem, he certainly is not shunned...

    Esteem <> entertainment. I'm entertained by many people I wouldn't want in charge nor trust. I think your terminology is wrong as evidenced by the reaction.

    Newt is much more than an entertainer.. he is canvassing the country looking more and more like he is laying groundwork for a presidential run...

    Right now he is in Iowa wooing voters... and criticizing their judiciary...

    People like to hear Newt talk, he has that gift of saying the things some people like to hear, he is a captivating smooth talking politician, the man himself is an empty suit when it comes down to being a person you could trust or bring home to meet the kids.

    America put another guy just like him in the White House because of those same speaking abilities THE FRIGGIN CLOWN WE NOW CALL "MR PRESIDENT"

    Why do you hate the choice of the American electorate?

    It's not hate, it's bewilderment, my feelings towards Messiah is the same as those on the left towards Sarah.

    Nobody will ever top the hatred thrown at GW Bush.

    I agree with DarrylS.

    Newt comes up with lists, Powerpoint presentations, and the like. And the next day he's got a whole new list.

    That long Esquire article showed me he's not a true conservative. In the interview at the end, Gingrich says:
    I am also personally affronted that he didn't work to overturn affirmative racism (action) when he and the Dumb Republicans had the power in '94.

    Now my white sons will be treated like second class citizens when applying for college or seeking public sector work.

    Jesus Christ, now you've done it State, the "Saintly Do-Gooders" are coming after you.

    Bush / McCain also aren't true Conservatives, they did and said NOTHING while the INVASION of America by 12 Million Illegal Aliens was taking place, Bush went down to Texas and "cleared brush"

    Oddly, State, despite the "deck being stacked against White males," they secure the most favorable outcomes of any such demographic statistically.

    I'd urge you to tell them never to use their downtrodden plight as an excuse, and to "defy the odds" to succeed anyway.

    Best of luck with that
