    Nudy Gingrinch. A perfect example of hypocrisy.

    Yea… What’s interesting to me is the only one’s who are bringing up Newt is the left. I don’t know anyone who is serious on the conservative side who is actually bringing up Newt into the discussion. Of all the Reps with previous attempts, only the Huckster and Romney have come up in talks. Heck, flip-flopper, TV star, super businessman and hair deficient super rich man Donald Trump has gotten much more press and garnered much more possible support than old eye of Newt.

    So maybe this should be a comic mockery that should just cease. Just saying. No Newt is good Newt.

    DJ, seriously, I’d like your take on the Trump. Think he can make a serious bid. We know he’s got the money and the name recognition.

    He def has the money and name rec. I think his one major drawback is his history. He is a bigger flip-flopper than McCain, LOL. If a debate would occur, opponents on both sides of the isle will easily point out this flaw and exploit it fully. So, even if he did make the final bid, he’d probably get beat in the end.

    Going for him is his business sense in knowing how to make money, how to spend money, how to manage a payroll of immeasurable magnitude, how to debate and how to portray himself as a strong leader. Those are all certainly desirable traits, especially desired by those on the Right. God knows they need one… it’s been a while.

    However, I think he’s also a polarizing figure. People either love him or hate him. He certainly can be portrayed as narcissistic and selfish, despite the many charitable donations. But in the last few years he and his kids have taken on a better air of character on TV than in previous years (this is my opinion based on watching the Celebrity Apprentices and the first Apprentice).

    Personally, still not the representative I would be hoping for. Sadly, I think Hukabee is a little bit better a choice for me… though I’m not sold on him either and am not sure he’d stand a chance either.

    btw… thanks for asking Walrus. I would be curious at your take and/or whether you’d like to see Obama challenged in a primary or not.

    OH!! quick question… wouldn’t Trump be better suited as a member of the Wig party? Just saying…

    ^ The only reason I demonize him is because he demonizes the LGBT community. If he lives and let live, I have no issue with him.

    Claiming gays will destroy the “sanctity” of marriage when he’s twice an adulterer and on his third marriage makes him pretty much the demon he claims others are.

    No matter what, I could never ever vote for Trump. He is a disgusting twit. But the country voted twice for Bush.

    Dj, the kindest I can be to O is to think of him as Carter light. Well meaning, but a bungler. Challenged? On the one hand yes, because I don’t think he’s strong. On the other no, because I thinkthe fight would weaken the party and that is one thiing we don’t need. P.S. Your wig party joke is too painful to deserve a rimshot ;-)

    My GOP ticket for 2012: Christie/West. Talk about kicking butt and taking names. 2020: West/Rubio.

    I like Huck as a person, but he is a populist like Palin. Newt is probably the smartest of all, but has lots of baggage. Ron Paul has good ideas, but could never be elected. It may come down to Romney, who would be a thousand times better than what we have now.
