Rasmussen: Newt Pulling Away Nationally

Gingrich 35%    Romney 28    Santorum 16    Paul 10 

Well, that happened quite a bit quicker than I expected- Newt out 7 points on Mittens nationally.  If you missed it, Gallup already had the Former House Speaker hypothetically in a statistical dead-heat with Obama, too... maybe he's 'electable' after all, eh.

And another thing you hear from the other side is stuff about Newt’s considerable ego and ‘megalomaniac’, etc.

Well, consider this: the ball is REALLY teed up for any who’d like to be a conservative hero of all time… think about it. The opportunity is right there, and NOW: Newt said he’s going to institute a Reagan-Laffer-Kemp agenda… right?

Pulling the country out of the steep descent of the bizarre and destructive Obama era could make Newt the man of history his ego has long craved… and he’s surely smart enough to smell the opportunity. He's actually so strident in his conservative rhetoric, you could say he's pretty much painted himself into a corner.

That shining city on a hill is a pretty powerful motivator for him to stick to his Reaganite platform… the ego is far from a negative imho, now that he’s so obviously matured: on the contrary, could drive him on to success... and this one knows just how to do it.

If Newt Gingrich has wandered in his thinking out loud, so be it- I don’t think there’s any gain for him personally in morphing to RINO in office… think about it that way. His economic agenda was enthusiastically endorsed by Art Laffer- that ought to count for something.

Newt Pulling Away Nationally

Newt's record isn't conservative. Sorry, but you are going to be disappointed if you think he is going to drive conservatism from that tee. Just last night he was talking about his support for Medicare Part D, another government entitlement that created $16.1 trillion in unfunded liabilities. He's a fake, phony fraud who was run out of Washington by his own party. He is no Ronald Reagan, and in fact the Reagan diaries mention Newt once, and it isn't favorable.

Newt is no Obama. I'd vote for a lab rat before I'd vote for Obama or a 3rd party candidate.

Reagan was a divorced/remarried former Democrat you know.

Most important issues for me are economy and defense- I have no doubt Newt is a hawk.

As for the economy, Art Laffer endorsed him ENTHUSIASTICALLY- good enough for me

Who are you for, Bill?

Opus, the problem is too many of these Republicans support the same things Obama does. What change is that? Mitt sits on the board of Healthymagination pushing for a national healthcare database and the federal mandate posed to make lots of money from Obamacare. When the government controls your health records and your healthcare, they have the ultimate power over you, the useless eater. Remember the death panels.

Reagan, this isn't about divorce. As for defense, what happens when China no longer funds our country with loans so we can no longer fund our military? This is far more complicated than just being for the economy and defense.

By the way, I voted for a lab rat four years ago and I felt dirty. I really felt dirty after watching his campaign attack Sarah Palin, who attracted voters to McCain's campaign that weren't going to the polls prior to her being named VEEP.
