  • Well none of this really matters naymore, this race is all but over.

    One day before the South Carolina primary, actor and martial arts extraordinaire Chuck Norris endorsed Newt Gingrich for president.

  • I don't know either but I think Ron Paul is campaigning in the 5 caucus states coming up , to acquire delegates to use at the August GOP convention. I don't know what he wants but you are right, and he would siphon away votes from the republican candidate. I think he's a message candidate and is setting up the stage for his son, Senator Rand Paul, for when he makes his 2016 presidential bid.

    I don't think Ron Paul wants to go out hurting the GOP's chances and the GOP doesn't want him to run as a third party candidate...Notice Mitt Romney does not say anything bad about Ron Paul.

  • This was an entertaining Morning Joe spot with Stephen Colbert:

  • Oh yes, I've been keeping up with Wisconsin where over one million petitions were collected to recall Governor Walker..That's twice the amount that was needed.... The democratic challenger already has a lead.... Republican overreach was not taken lightly by Wisconsin's citizens.

    "Stephen Colbert beating all of the Republican candidates in favorability, with 36% to Mitt Romney's 35%. But in a race for president, Colbert earns 13% of the vote to Obama's 41% and Romney's 38%. And because Colbert supporters tend to lean towards Obama, a third-party Colbert candidacy would mean he'd hurt the president's chances. Will Romney start funneling money to Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow?

    It's bad if Steven Colbert can beat a candidate that's actually running...Many say that's why Huntsman quit and perhaps Perry.

  • Barnum & Bailey got NOTHIN' on the SC GOP Presidential Primary. Willard, the job creator, has had his income tax rate, off shore accounts, and speaking fees reviewed by his high ground competitors without a whiff of "the politics of envy" or "class warfare". Newt continues to delight and watching the evangelicals embrace his remorse and ownership of his actions is inspiring. Most thrice married wife abandoning narcissist would attempt to kill the messenger and attack the moderator instead of contritely owning up to their misdeeds. As attention shifts to the pesky ethics investigations in Newt's past more of the character of his moral evolution will reveal the foundation to his high ground perch.

    If only the Tea Partyers will holdfast to principle and set electability aside.

    Mike-
    With all the excitement in SC have you noticed what's going on in Wisconsin?

  • Mitt Romney had two great lines last week but he doesn't have the flair Newt does in getting his point across.....Example last week, he said that Gingrich had overstated his role in helping President Ronald Reagan create millions of jobs:

    He said “He’d been in Congress two years, when Ronald Reagan came to office,” “That would be like saying 435 congressmen were all responsible for those jobs.”

    Then in Thursday night's debate, Mitt Romney told Newt, “You were mentioned once in Ronald Reagan's diary, "Reagan said that you had an idea in a meeting with a young congressman, he didn't think it was a good idea and he dismissed it."

    I don't know why republicans cling to Reagan; don't they have any modern day republican heroes?

  • I wont have this conversation on the Vicad with you Mike. It's not very fun for anyone that has to read it. You know how easy it is to find me if you want to hear a few facts surrounding your claims.
    It is your blog and you can "state" just about anything you want too.

  • Vet43

    I've never seen anyone squirm as much as Mitt ,when he is asked to release his tax returns,

    Ron Paul flat out said no....I don't know why
    Rick Santorum will show his tax return and Newt's are on line...President Obama has released several years of tax returns..

  • We have media reform..It's the on/ff switch and channel selector on your remote.....The Democrats want Newt to be the GOP nominee..It will be easy,all you have to do run the ads Romney will launch at Newt...

  • I can't take credit for the comment about repealing the health care bill because Ron Paul told his fellow candidates that it was not realistic...The Democrats might take back the house and I think SCOTUS can vote down the individual mandate and leave the rest. 

    Mitt Romney has the look of someone who lost his puppy..The Eisenhower/Rockefeller republicans want to line up behind Romney and the tea party might have found their candidate in Newt Gingrich...IMO

  • Should the next President of the United Sates of America be sheltering funds in offshore banks and selling discount stocks to a church that will go un-named. Newt only wanted to act like he had sisterwives.

    No surprised here.

  • Mike.
    You are looking at this in the Short term and not in the long term. John King and CNN have done Newt’s job for him. The questioning and style of CNN only made Newt to appear like an avenging victim.

    CNN, along with Fox and MSNBC, is the reason for media reform.

  • I remember a poster who posted how beautiful Alaska was after Valdez and how the BP spill was nothing at all...:-) I think he took a lot of pictures of cars @ Riverside..lol

  • Newt. Did the same thing to Fox when they did their version of Jerry Springer.

    Somehow Newt and a poster using multiple aliases shouldn't be used in the same sentence with the word high road. 

    January 20, 2012 at 8:47 p.m.

  • CNN wanted to turn this into the Phil Donahue or Jerry Springer show. That is more their style anyway.

    Thanks Newt for once again taking the high road.

  • I don't think Jon King is stupid,in fact he's an excellent debate moderator but I guess some think Newt made CNN look bad...Newt is just a grouchy old man who doesn't have the temperament to be president...Newt has done this before to Fox,NBC,ABC and CNN.

    It helped CNN get good ratings and I can see where Yahoo and Google etc will want to team up with them for  some future debates...I'm sure CNN made a staff decision to start out with fireworks.

  • John King is stupid for playing right into GOP's hands.
