    It would be great if newt could do those things, but poll after poll shows the best bet the repubs have to dethrone the current mistake in the WH is Romney. Santorum does better against BO than newt. Romney polls even or slightly ahead of BO, Santorum about 9 points behind BO, and newt's about 15 points behind BO. getting the nomination will do newt (and the country) no good since it assures BO's re-election.

    And he claims Mitt is a liar?! Does he not mention that this stuff isn't possible in any wild strain of the imagination? Did he forget about Congress and how changing laws actually works? Vote for me, by the end of my very first day you will all be living in huge mansions, sipping a soda in your brand new pool. But don't ask me how I am going to accomplish this, just get out and vote.

    Newt is a loose cannon ball. To state before taking office that he is going to wipe out 40 percent of Obama policies will like being a country that has been under a dictator for 10 years and then the dictator is ousted and the country goes wild, for awhile. The dictator didn't have a Congress and Supreme Court that was part of the process. We do. Some of those 40 percent will have something in the process that says they can't be done away with overnight. There is a process, good or bad, that happens in our form of government. We don't want anarchy and political unrest. That will happen. We don't want martial law and that almost wreaks of that. For those who have lived under a dictator or martial law, those things are not good. I have lived in places that both existed. Newt knows that rhetoric sounds good to the people he wants to vote for him tomorrow in Florida. It is pandering just like he did at NASA and to the Latinos. He doesn't like to be compared to Obama but these are just like the promise of hope and change that Obama used in his campaign. Just words and not action. Obama has changed things but not for the good. He is the same of the old.
