I love Newt, but I hope he doesn't run. He's brilliant and one of the greatest political minds and communicators of all time. Unfortunately he has a really messy personal life which will come back to haunt him. And...I don't think his recent conversion to Catholicism is going to help. Dumping your wife for your staffer when you are Speaker of the House is not a formula for future success as a Presidential candidate. That was his second wife. He served his first wife with divorce papers when she was in the hospital with cancer.

It's amazing to me how some people, who are so intelligent and so insightful about politics and world affairs, can be so foolish in their personal choices. Oh well.

Should we all start doing "cart-wheels" now and let down our-guard just because Newt Gingrich intends to take a formal step toward entering the 2012 presidential race within the next two weeks?. I take issue with him, he's "NOT" so intelligent and insightful about real politics and world affairs of today.

As our society starts breaking apart we will come face-to-face with:

Bank Failures
Food Shortages
Energy Shortages
Stock Market Crash
Dollar Crash
Martial Law
Fall of Local, State and Federal Governments

Which means, right now, you are faced with one of the most important choices you will ever make. You can remain delusional and believe that things will get better. That this can't happen here. Sure, maybe things will be tough in Greece or Argentina, but not here in the Western World. Yes, you can continue to rely on the ostrich approach, sticking your head in the sand and pretending all will be fine. Millions of you will do so. Others, the ones who have the best shot at surviving, will take heed of the warning signs and realize that it can happen here and prepare themselves.

Oh Cats, he is now on to wife number 3, who we met while he was still with wife number 2. This is the best the Republicans can come up with? I surely hope not. "Trust" and commitment are two words greatly lacking from his resume.

Gingrich would have a better shot at it than Romney or Huntsman, at least from my voting standpoint.

Why does Ron Paul never make a list of potential candidates? He is weighing a run and his supporters raised almost three quarters of a million dollars on President's Day. People should learn more about this principled man before dismissing him as a fringe candidate

Reply: Gingrich?, better shot than Romney or Huntsman?. The Three Stooges?. No way. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says the healthcare law that Mitt Romney signed as governor of Massachsusetts shouldn't automatically eliminate Romney as a presidential candidate in 2012, Politico reports. "I don't think it disqualifies him," Huckabee said during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday." "I don't have a problem with a governor in any state taking a risk, trying something bold." In his new book, Huckabee takes Romney to task for the health plan, which Huckabee called "RomneyCare," asserting that it proves "socialized medicine does not work." Remember it was Moammar Gadhafi that said Libyan protesters were all on drugs, and then he blamed it on al-Qaida. Now, he's saying it's the fault of the teachers unions. Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi described President Obama as an African of Arab and Muslim descent. After the speech, Gadhafi was given his own show on Fox News along with Glenn Beck. Sarah Palin is going to a political conference in India next month. Palin said she's loved India ever since she saw "Hoosiers."
