    Well this may turn out to be the shortest Presidential run ever:

    Newt Gingrich advisers resign en masse - Jonathan Martin - POLITICO.com

    ".......
    Gingrich and his top aides insisted at the time that the botched rollout had not affected the candidate‚Äôs standing with voters, blaming instead the Washington ‚Äúliterati‚ÄĚ for their predicament...."

    Ah, yes. The last refuge to which a scoundrel clings!

    Gingrich should go hang around with Weiner and Clinton, they were all made for each other.

    We still have Sarah as a possibility!

    Actually, Newt is on a completely higher intelligence plane than Sarah. He does have a first rate mind and I would be far more comfortable with a smart person like Gingrich (even though I don't agree with most of his ideas) rather than an incompetent fool like Palin in such an important job.

    He has been a refreshing improvement from the prior 8 years.

    Sorry, but there is nothing "refreshing" or in the least bit an "improvement" over the prior 8 years. Obama has been an unmitigated disaster pretty much from the moment he took office to the present day. It's incredible that his approval ratings are as low as they are when you consider how much the fawning media does to try and prop him up.

    Seriously.... what part of our economy is better now than it was on 1/20/09? Unemployment is up (by a lot), gas prices are up (by a lot), the deficit and debt are up (by a lot), housing market still sucks, job market still sucks and no turn around is seen as coming any time soon. Oh, but the Dow is up. Huzzah huzzah. That just means, as you liberals always like to complain about, the rich get richer.

    It still brings much more to the table than you could ever dream of doing yourself.

    Gingrich never had a shot. Niether do names like Cain, Bachman, Santorum, Giuliani, etc. Think of Mike Gravel, Chris Dodd, Dennis Kucinich, etc. from 2008. There are some people you just know aren't going to make it.

    If 9% unemployment, $4 gas, $14 trillion debt, cash for clunkers, bailouts, trillion dollar annual debt projections for the next 10 years, military actions across the globe, and stagflation are "refreshing" then I hate to see what the good times will bring.

    What is it with all the strange names republicans have?

    I mean NEWT GINGRICH....??? seriously?

    I've always noticed how many of them have wierd names, especially in my staunch librul days. I used to think, "are these all super wealty names or something because I've never met people with such strange names."

    Maybe we can start a thread and list wierd names on both sides to see who wins....

    This basic understanding is good, as it will help you understand all that is wrong with this country.. when and if the investor class starts feeling the realities of this "recession" then things might change. But right now the power elite is content with what is going on.. as this economic mess only effects the middle and lower classes.

    When was the last time a million dollar home was foreclosed?

    Drive by any seaside community and notice all the mini mansions being built.. all of the luxury hotels are full as are the top end resorts, first class seats are full in airplanes, private golf courses are doing well.. it goes on and on. The rich have gotten much richer since 2001.. and it ain't trickling down to the rest of us peons..

    Oh, stop whining about the poor Christians who can't get a break, will ya? I bash religion in general-all of them. This time it was just dumb luck. I did an image search for something like "change of plan" thinking about Gingrich. I was thinking about his pathetic attempt at re-tooling himself and his desperate attempt to maintain his facade of viability.

    That's all. JEEZIZ!
