    Newt, you drive people nuts, you know that? First, you try to smooth talk your way into the race. Then when you start losing, you start stomping your feet like the "cry-baby" that you are. Then you make equally stupid comments like this:

    "My goal is to turn the safety net into a trampoline to allow the poor to rise and be like the rest of us.”

    ...allow the poor to trise and be like the rest of us? Who exactly are you talking about Newt? Are you saying that you're better than the poor? Big faux pas, Newt, BIG.

    Then you said “We did not create Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac so rich guys like Mitt Romney and Goldman Sachs could make money,"

    No, Newt – you created them so YOU could make money. Remember, you made 1.6 million from them...

    You really tire me.

    In My Opinion – Even though I'm Voting a Straight Ticket in a Republican State, I think my vote would count (more so) voting a straight ticket. ron paul isn't going that far – I watched him in the Piers Morgan Interview – It was very interesting, to say the least , (other than when Piers interupted him, at almost every answer, ron paul gave) the way I see it, obama will end up getting defeated, come november, probably by a close margin, by Romney. If the newter was the nominee, obama would get re-elected, period. Everyone that I've talked to, says they want somebody "with fresh ideas" not an "old re-tread" so, that being said, I'd say if Romney is the nominee, he will be our nxt Prez. I mean, with the newter, it's like : why settle for a 're-tread' IF you can get a brand new tire for your car.
    Vote Democrat – ( but it sure would be nice if the DNC would actually Find Somebody Else to run against obama)
    (At least we'll get a moderate in there, instead of somebody that's from the far, far left)

    DEMOCRAT – 2012

    Newt is still gone to the moon and having dreams about what he can do when he dreams he is in the white house. He is so dumb, and disgusting, it makes us embarrassed to see him represent a previous Speaker of the house. I am so glad they got rid of him and do not want him back.

I wish he had courage and would go sit down!

    Gingrich is losing control of himself.It appears that people are pulling away from him as he doesn't make sense most of the time.

      If that were truly the case, then Ron Paul wouldn't have come to his defense recently on Pier's show and state he agrees with Romney on virtually everything.
