Maybe pin this so that we don't have a new thread everytime something happens between now and next November? Just an idea.

Except for the hatred of God, there is nothing on here but politics. Would be hard to do I would think.

Obama speaking in Kansas right now. Sounding more like '08 Obama than POTUS Obama. He's going to murder Newt in a debate setting next year.

Here is my next prediction concerning the 2012 GOP reality show...Newt will be the next to crash and burn. He is unelectable due to all the skeletons in his closet, as well as his involvement in sketchy fund raising pet projects that he cannot afford to give up or have exposed. Because of this, he cannot afford to make a serious run at the presidency. This is all show.

By design, Newt will be the next to go down. Watch it happen.

What the Republican nomination process has come down to.

Huntsman just accepted a Lincoln-Douglas style debate with Gingrich

I may actually watch this. If the race was non-media driven, Gingrich v. Romney v. Huntsman v. Paul would be the fatal fourway this country wants to see who can challenge Obama.

No Santorum, no Bachmann, no Trump, no Cain...oh almost forgot about that Perry guy.

Thats not a bad idea. What's going to happen when they both show themselves as moderate, politically savvy campaigners that probably agree with Obama more often than not?

The Cain Gingrich debate that was in this style was pretty good except Cain just agreed most of the time. He was over his head.

Gingrich and Huntsman should be pretty good. Two smartest guys on the stage.

I dont know why everyone insists Newt is so smart...if anything, i would translate that as his being better at cooking the books than anyone else. Oh well...at least we have his crashing and burning to look forwards to here shortly. His turn is next to get kicked off the 2012 GOP Reality Show...and good riddance to that, I know pretty much all politicians are scumbags, but Newt is up there amongst the scumbags of all scumbag politicians.

Newts been able to rise because he's done 2 things consistently rhetoric wise:

1 - Taking the "step back and let's take look" perspective that somehow wows the base when in reality half of the things he says will never happen even with a republican house and exc. branch

2 - Attacking the "liberal" media in debates

Those two very simple things along with some weird off-base nostalgia for the 90s has people clamoring to the guy.

What he does do well is drive conversation without harping about the same crap on and on like Bachmann, Perry, Cain, etc. He did that in the 90s but every time submitted to Clinton's grasp.

These few things along with his demeanor as the "helpful asshole" is getting him support on the middle and far right.
