    Wow, that was quick.

    And another take.

    This quote was awesome:

    Yep, I'm sure Obama's terrified of those who have declared so far for the Republicans.

    Is there anyone so far that has declared for the Republican nomination that is worth anything? Do you think Michelle Bachman will run? :)

    No worries. You still have 'What's her Name'. You know ... the one with the initials "SP"! [​IMG]

    I think she learned her lesson in the last election. I don't think she would risk her newly aquired financial success or her reputation of those that think she is a smart person by running.

    guys the election is a lifetime away in terms of campaigning. this time last election almost nobody knew who Obama was.
    If you are getting this worked up already.... your going to age a hundred years by the time the election comes around

    Just specualtion, Lucky. Most democrats knew who Obama was from his speach at the preceding Democratic National Convention. The campaigning started about a year out. Maybe we'll be lucky this year and they'll all decide to wait until 3 or 4 months before the election? Naw, I don't think so either :(

    Yeah anything happening now is inconsequential as long as nothing earthmoving happens. The killing of OBL has the potential of having a lingering effect. Anything else will be long forgotten by the time the frenzy starts.

    That is why now we only have the fringe people clamoring for attention. They know they don't have a chance but they'll get some free publicity. All serious candidates will wait until they can peak their campaign at the right time. I would not expect serious campaigning until end of the year at the earliest.

    That's even before getting to the train wreck that is the way he treats the women in his life.

    Then again, a serious candidacy by Mr. Gingrich could do a lot to push the tired "family values" drumbeat off the platform and get the party more focused on jobs and foreign policy and less focused on government interference of personal life.

    As was I. The man is bright and articulate. I think he would mop the floor with Obama in a debate, but its just not possible to look past all his problems and baggage.

    Too bad Cain isn't more well known, seems like a sharp charismatic guy, who would really limit the lefts ability to play their favorite card...

    LOL Another idiotic post. Again, if you have issue with what he does, that's cool. Saying he is a blathering idiot is obviously not true and makes you look like the blathering idiot. If he was such a blathering idiot, the Republicans would not be having such a hard time finding somone to run against him.

    Really? Cause so far all he's succeeded in doing is making Newt look like a blathering idiot...

    He appears to be the one opening his mouth wide enough to insert foot at the moment.

    WC, you are gonna pull a muscle in your desperate attempt to cover up the turds your boy has left EVERYWHERE for the last 3 years. it is getting old, and pathetic

    i dont give a crap if you disagree with me, i think Nobama is a moronic idiot, and i am gonna say so, and you carrying his water, that's your right to do it, but it makes YOU look like a tool.

    you can cry and whine when your boyfriend is called out on being what he is, a MORONIC IDIOT, but it is an opinion, and i am entitled to it.

    you are 100% right. And it is a shame, because Newt is a smart guy, one of the smartest in politics, and he would embarrass that MORON Nobama up one side and down the other.

    but, like i said, he is dead to me, now

    Gingrich demonstrates the importance of lock-step in regards to party politics.

    It worked fine for the big government, big spending, international interventist neo-cons. Worked so well, they took over the joint.
