after looking at this

Quote:
In an interview with Jake Tapper of ABC News, Gingrich sounded like LeBron James vowing to bring Miami an NBA championship.

GINGRICH: "I'm going to be the nominee. It's very hard not to look at the recent polls and think that the odds are very high I'm going to be the nominee. And by the way I don't object if people want to attack me, that's their right. All I'm suggesting that it's not going to be very effective and that people are going to get sick of it very fast. And the guys who attacked each other in the debates up to now, every single one of them have lost ground by attacking. So they should do what they and their consultants want to do. I will focus on being substantive and I will focus on Barack Obama."
This is just the latest example of why "humble" isn't a word typically associated with Gingrich. It's also an example why Gingrich may not wear well with many voters who might prefer their eventual nominee to at least wait until voting actually begins in the Republican caucuses and primaries before he begins writing his convention-acceptance speech.


Gingrich's position on attacking his rivals dovetails with what he has reportedly told his staff, that they aren't to attack the other candidates for the Republican nomination, particularly the man who was previously the odds-on favorite for the nomination, Mitt Romney.

According to Real Clear Politics' Erin McPike:

According to Gingrich campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond, "In response to the dynamics over the last 24 hours about the attacks coming our way, his instructions to us were to not say anything bad about Mitt Romney."
I'd say Newt has a plan

Get the nomination,
and then get Mitt to be his V P

take advantage of Mitt's well organized machine and big money.

at this point, absolutely not.

But, I also remember 1980, and how much animosity there was between Reagan and Bush 1 or one could go back to 1960 with Kennedy and Johnson.

Newt is smart to not want to attack Romney at all.
I do think Newt would jump at a chance to be Romney's Dick Cheney.

There is also a wildcard waiting in the wings for the GOP, should neither Newt or Mittens be enough of a force:

musical chairs is the perfect way to describe it

Christ, can we just for once dig up someone worthwhile? This is so depressing.

Herman Cain is hilarious, he actually said in NH last night that people are dredging up these allegations because 999 is so threatening.

Well flip it over and it IS 666

It seems the book tour is taking a turn for the less presidential.

Women For Herman Cain

Quote:
Robin Haraway
MILLINGTON, TN

"Sir, I firmly believe that you were sent to our nation through Divine Providence and I believe that you are the man to preserve our Republic for our children. Remember, you have overcome many adversities in your life. You have pulled yourself up by your bootstraps through sheer determination and honesty. You were delivered from cancer. My prayers are for strength and guidance for you and your beautiful family this weekend. "

"Don't give up! Unfortunately, this is the way of politics in America. If they can't legitimately challenge you face to face, they dig up every piece of dirt they can find. And if they can't find it, like now, they make it up and twist the truth. I believe in you and the only reason this is happening is because you got them running scared. The more they attack, the more effective you are. Keep going - we're all behind you!"

"Mr. Cain, To me you are the embodiment of the prayers of every faithful believing slave who turned to ALMIGHTY GOD for deliverance from slavery and inequality. You are the embodiment of Martin Luther King Jr. 'I have a dream' speech. You are the only hope I have for a future in America!Be strong and of good courage Mr. Cain, Our God Reigns! "

Donald Trump will moderate a GOP Debate. The campaign has officially become a parody. What will SNL do, just show actual footage?

1st question: have any of you actually touched Obama's birth certificate?
