Actually it is not you 95% moron.   
Obama basically said that unless he gets 60 plus votes in the Senate plus the house of reps back he cant get anything done.   
In 2012 - there is literally no scenario where obama gets 60 plus seats in the Senate and the house is still up for grabs.   
So why vote for him again when he already told you that an obama second term will literally mean 4 more years of bullshit?   no my words, his! 
Sure the fuck is.. your bitch ass always comes with the dumbest "arguments".... and your arguments are all opinion.. you fuckin bitch

Massive Poll: Half of Tea Partyers Support Gingrich
Thursday, 26 Jan 2012
By Martin Gould

Tea partyers overwhelmingly back Newt Gingrich to be the Republican presidential nominee, a huge poll of 29,000 people shows.

And despite claims that rival candidate Ron Paul is the grandfather of the grass-roots conservative movement, the Texas congressman comes out with the worst ratings in every single question asked in the survey.

More than half of the respondents said they believe Gingrich will win the nomination. Even more say he has the best chance of defeating President Barack Obama in the fall, while slightly under 50 percent say the former House speaker is their choice, according to the Grassfire Nation poll.

“Newt Gingrich appears to have solidified strong support from just under half the tea party movement. Now the question is no longer one of who has the most support within the movement, it’s more a matter of the movement’s ability [or inability] to outperform the traditional GOP primary voter base,” wrote Grassfire Nation media director Eric Odom.

When it came to stating which of the candidates is their least favorite, those surveyed picked Paul by an overwhelming majority over Mitt Romney, Gingrich, and Rick Santorum, in that order.

“For all the messaging we’ve seen about Ron Paul being the tea party granddaddy, it’s amazing that he fails to shine at any point in the survey,” Odom said.

“Ron Paul is clearly the least favorite out of the 29,000 surveyed, he’s perceived as the least likely nominee, and the tea party base views him as having the worst chances at defeating Barack Obama.

“This flies in the face of the argument that Ron Paul’s foreign policy isn’t damaging to his brand. On domestic policy one could easily assume Ron Paul wins hands down. It’s the foreign policy that immediately yanks him to the back of the line.”

When asked which candidate they would vote for in a primary or caucus, just over 48 percent said Gingrich, with Santorum at 25 percent; Romney, 15; and Paul, 12. When asked who ultimately would be the candidate, Gingrich had 55 percent, Romney 32, Santorum 7 and Paul 6.

But Gingrich really shone on the question of who is the best candidate to beat Obama, getting 57 percent, compared with Romney’s 23, Santorum’s 12, and Paul’s 9.

Gingrich and Santorum were the only two who more than half of the tea party supporters feel would be acceptable candidates. Gingrich scored 69 percent support; Santorum, 61; Romney, 43; and Paul, 22.

“That means every other tea party voter finds Romney totally unacceptable,” Odom said. “That’s a big problem for Romney in that the tea party movement is currently the most energized part of the Republican voter base.”

On the question of the least favorite, Paul easily outstripped the others with 57 percent; Romney scored 25; Gingrich, 13; and Santorum, 5.

The tea party supporters showed their allegiance to the Republican Party with 79 percent saying they would not support a conservative third-party candidate. Sixteen percent said they would and 5 percent said they were undecided.

“Hands down — no questions asked — there simply is no interest or support for such an effort,” Odom said.

Cuban-American Leader: Huge Push for Newt Over Mitt
NewsMax ^ | January 28, 2012 | David A. Patten
Posted on January 28, 2012 5:21:07 PM EST by Cincinatus' Wife

Carlos Perez, one of Ronald Reagan's closest Miami advisers and a Radio Mambi talk host who is influential in Florida's Cuban-American community, says there is growing resentment among Hispanics due to “lies and distortions” from GOP candidate Mitt Romney targeting former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Perez told Newsmax in an exclusive interview Saturday afternoon that a backlash is brewing against the Romney campaign’s allegation that Gingrich tried to undermine former President Ronald Reagan’s agenda.

Perez was a close adviser to President Reagan, and Reagan even acknowledged his Cuban-American friend's achievement during a State of the Union address.

“Among Cuban-Americans, you can bet your life Newt Gingrich will win the primary election,” Perez flatly predicted.

Perez, host of a popular Miami radio and television show, said Hispanic voters and especially Cuban-Americans are now “backing Newt Gingrich dramatically” and “getting a little bit mad at the Romney campaign.”

Perez endorsed Gingrich’s presidential bid on Monday. On Saturday, he told Newsmax that the buzz in the Cuban-American community has turned strongly pro-Gingrich.

Newt Gingrich vs. the Republican establishment
Politico ^ | Koffler
Posted on January 29, 2012 10:04:32 PM EST by VinL

The conservative Republican base understands Newt Gingrich better than the GOP establishment thinks.

They are aware of his intermittent apostasies and occasional adventures with crackpot policy. They know Mitt Romney is the one with executive experience and that Gingrich can’t really run things.

And they don’t want Gingrich to run things. They want him to destroy things.

If you are in Washington and you see a member of the Republican establishment, say, walking down K Street, wrap your arms around them. He or she needs a hug, because probably for the first time ever in a Republican presidential primary the establishment is in danger of being completely ignored.

The Republican establishment believes that the birth and rebirth of candidate Gingrich should have ended in the cradle, that he had no right messing up Romney’s coronation in South Carolina and had better be stopped in Florida.

The establishment knows Gingrich. He’s kind of a friend of the Republican establishment. And Gingrich, the establishment says, you’re no president.

The establishment may be right. But it may not get its way. Win or lose Tuesday in Florida, Gingrich is in the game for real, because the Republican base is giving him a chance.

The grass-roots conservatives, tea partiers, evangelicals and the like who compose the base have had it with the establishment. The base is not only angry at President Barack Obama. The base wants to eat its own.

It was nice, polite Republicans, like Romney, who colluded with Democrats in expanding the federal government and who piled up the $15 trillion debt that now threatens to destroy the country. It was upstanding members of the GOP who added a new Medicare entitlement without paying for it, who created new agencies and wove myriad regulations to govern the lives of regular folk.

The base wants someone who is not polite, who is not conventional, who has the potential to grasp the established order in Washington by its cuff links and rip out its entrails.

For the same reason conservatives fell in love with blunt Herman Cain and his cigarette-puffing campaign manager, they now have eyes for Gingrich.

And the establishment is desperately trying to figure out what to do.

Sure, Republican primaries have, on occasion, created some turmoil. But in the end, someone “sensible” with the imprimatur of the establishment has always prevailed.

The nomination has usually been passed like a monarch’s crown — to the runner-up in the previous contest. George H.W. Bush prevailed over Bob Dole in 1988 and then fended off the anti-establishment upstart Pat Buchanan four years later. Dole got the nod in 1996.

With George W. Bush, the establishment actually passed its genes from one president to another.

Even Ronald Reagan, often cited as the man who broke the establishment, was not the type of uncontrolled meteor that Gingrich is. Reagan had almost beaten President Gerald R. Ford in 1976 and was the heavy favorite going into the 1980 primaries. He had the backing of many prominent Republicans as well as the leading outlet of conservative thought, the National Review.

This orderly process of selection does not succeed because the Republican establishment is a kind of omnipotent secret organization that meets every Tuesday in the bowels of the Chamber of Commerce to plot the fate of the GOP.

Rather, it is a loose network of Republican thinkers, politicians, lobbyists, staffers and journalists based in Washington who share common experiences — like being educated in the same ivory towers as liberals and having to answer to them at cocktail parties.

Within the establishment, everyone can safely turn to one another and say with a reasonable expectation of concurrence that Ron Paul is an unelectable crank with some wacky ideas, that something’s not quite right about Rick Santorum with all his moralizing and religious ecstasies and that Gingrich can’t be trusted with your children, let alone nuclear weapons.

Meanwhile, Romney is a robot from Planet Hairdo, but at least he won’t screw things up. He’s someone with whom the establishment can feel comfortable — who won’t spill merlot on the carpet.

Romney says that Gingrich is part of the establishment. Technically, Romney is right. Gingrich was House speaker, after all, and then made millions trading off his name and his insider status.

But Gingrich is not part of the real Republican establishment.

He’s rude. He has weird ideas. And he’s unpredictable. One day he’s huddling in a backroom with Tom DeLay and the next he’s seated next to then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), talking global warming.

He rattles the established order. He upsets people. In the 1990s, he removed from power poor old Republican Minority Leader Bob Michel, who every two years had bleated “Oh well” and handed the speaker’s gavel to the Democrat in charge.

This is what the conservative base likes. It sees that while Romney will do a modest job reining in the budget, Gingrich might just whack the thing until it begs for mercy and releases all its wasteful programs.

It knows that while Romney will oppose the world’s bad guys, Gingrich might just scare them back into their caves and then bury them with B-52s.

Snarling at CNN’s John King, proposing to colonize the moon and wondering aloud if child labor laws need revising, Gingrich is the end to business as usual.

Newt Gingrich: President Obama 'needs to move to Europe'
Seattle PI ^ | Updated 05:06 p.m., Friday, February 24, 2012 | JOEL CONNELLY
Posted on February 24, 2012 8:31:57 PM EST by Red Steel

FEDERAL WAY -- Ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich, seeking his third comeback in the Republican presidential race, told a Friday rally that Barack Obama is "president of the wrong country" and ought to "move to Europe."

Gingrich dispensed red meat rhetoric with a smile. He is again the happy warrior seen in a CNN Republican debate earlier this week, and not the angry candidate who won in South Carolina but then lost big in Florida.

"Our only opponent is Barack Obama," Calista Gingrich said in introducing her husband. As for Newt Gingrich, he mentioned the GOP field only once with a dig at a free-spending, well-heeled rival: "Mitt Romney raises a lot more money from Wall Street than I do, but we have 170,000 donors."

The former House Speaker is holding four rallies in Washington, anticipating the state's Saturday, March 3, precinct caucuses

-snip-

The themes of his speech here could be summed up in three words: gas guzzlers and God.

Gingrich is touting a drill-baby-drill energy policy, saying he wants to be known as "President Drilling." He lampooned the fuel-efficient Chevy Volt, and the prospect of generating energy from algae -- calling Obama "President Algae" and "President Food Stamps" -- and claimed that the 44th president is seeking "total power" to shape Americans' consumption habits.

"The President would like to force all of us into small vehicles," Gingrich alleged. "The President would like to force all of to do what he wants. He's president of the wrong country. ... He needs to move to Europe."

It was about as blunt as any Republican candidate has espoused the Barack Obama-is-different line of argument. Gingrich followed up with another hit at the President, saying: "Obama's vision is one of total power in the White House."

Gingrich to leave presidential race next Tuesday, sources say
Published April 25, 2012
FoxNews.com

Newt Gingrich plans to formally leave the Republican presidential race next Tuesday, senior campaign aides told Fox News, after struggling for months to turn around his sagging bid for the White House.

The former House speaker will "more than likely" endorse Mitt Romney when he makes his announcement to either suspend or end the campaign, a source said.

The decision comes after Gingrich huddled with senior advisers following the five primaries Romney swept on Tuesday night. Romney's victories made it virtually impossible for Gingrich to secure the 1,144 delegates needed for the Republican nomination.

Gingrich's exit is a stark turnaround from his public posture just a few months back, when in December he confidently declared following his rise in national polls that he's "going to be the nominee." His campaign then flagged until his blockbuster victory in the South Carolina primary in late January -- Gingrich failed to follow that up with any victories save for a win in his home state of Georgia, as Romney marched steadily toward the nomination. 

Gingrich and Ron Paul were the only Romney rivals remaining after Rick Santorum bowed out earlier this month. Meanwhile, Gingrich continues to receive protection from a scaled-back Secret Service detail, though it's unclear whether that will change before his announcement. Bloomberg/Business Week recently estimated that the detail is costing taxpayers at least $40,000 a day.

For several weeks, Gingrich staffers have been reviewing accounts and making preparations. Gingrich had been holding out hope for a strong performance at least in Delaware Tuesday night. Absent that, Gingrich decided to plan for his exit next week.

He will complete his North Carolina schedule this week, making it something of a goodbye tour while supporters, friends and family arrive from across the country for his departure from the race.
Earlier on the trail, Gingrich signaled Wednesday morning that he was preparing to drop out. Telling a breakfast gathering of county Republicans in North Carolina that it's clear Romney will be the nominee, Gingrich said the campaign is "working out the details of our transition" and will have more information in the coming days.

"I think you have to be honest at some point about what's happening in the real world as opposed to what you'd have like to have happened," Gingrich said, praising the front-runner's primary performances Tuesday night.

"This guy has worked for six years, put together a big machine, and has put together a serious campaign," he said. "I think obviously that I would be a better candidate, but the objective fact is that the voters didn't think that."

Gingrich said he plans to complete his campaign schedule in North Carolina, which runs through Friday, but "I want you to know that I've been coming here a long time as a citizen, I'm going to keep coming as a citizen, I have a schedule through the rest of the week as a citizen."

Gingrich said that he and Callista are still committed to going to Tampa, but made it clear that they would be attending as Romney supporters and not as spoilers for the nomination.

"I do think it's pretty clear that Gov. Romney is ultimately going to be the nominee and we're going to do everything we can to make sure that he is, in fact, effective and that we as a team are effective both in winning this fall and then, frankly, in governing," he said.

Candidate Gingrich ends campaign but vows to keep fighting as 'Citizen' Gingrich
Published May 02, 2012
FoxNews.com

Newt Gingrich officially suspended his GOP presidential campaign Wednesday – though it was more like another episode in the long goodbye that started weeks ago.

“It has been an amazing year for me and Callista,” Gingrich, the former House speaker, said at a Hilton Hotel in northern Virginia. "Today, I am suspending the campaign, but suspending the campaign does not mean suspending citizenship. Callista and I are committed to be active citizens. We owe it to America."

Delivering a roughly 20-minute address, Gingrich vowed to, with his wife, remain “active citizens,” as he looked back on the primary campaign and looked ahead to what challenges remain in America.

But he also declined to endorse Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination -- meaning another announcement could still be on the way and potentially giving Gingrich another chance to deliver one of the extended monologues he is known for.

Even so, Gingrich has slowly slipped away from the limelight in the Republican race.

The campaign suggested in March that Gingrich might quit should he fail to win Mississippi or Alabama, but the campaign limped on. Aides then revealed last week that the candidate would be calling it quits – but pushed off the day of the announcement itself until Tuesday, then delayed that announcement until Wednesday afternoon.

Despite not endorsing Romney, Gingrich did make clear that his doubts during the primary campaign about Romney’s conservatism are dwarfed by his concerns about President Obama winning another term.

“This is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan – this is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical leftist president in American history,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich’s candidacy had seen its fair share of twists and turns since its launch last summer. He got off to a rough start -- losing his staff and finishing fourth in the Iowa caucuses, which kicked off the 2012 primary season -- but later gained momentum with a big win Jan. 21 in South Carolina.

He scored a must-win primary victory March 6 in Georgia, the state he represented in Congress for 20 years. But his plans of becoming the conservative alternative to frontrunner Romney -- and to Romney's deep-pocketed and well organized campaign -- during primaries across the South unraveled when Rick Santorum pulled off a string of wins in the region.

The wins moved Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, into position as Romney’s closest competitor in the race to face Obama in November. But like Santorum, who suspended his campaign in last month, Gingrich also had trouble raising money to stay in the race. His campaign is nearly $4 million in debt.

Santorum also has not officially endorsed Romney, the likely GOP nominee who remains in the race with Texas Rep. Ron Paul.

"I want to thank the former speaker for echoing my calls for monetary policy reform including a full audit of the Federal Reserve, steps that will bring America closer to lasting economic prosperity for middle-class Americans who bear the brunt of the dangerous and unjust inflation tax," Paul said.

Gingrich, a skilled debater, stayed true Wednesday to his penchant for lofty ideals and ideas, predicting his grandchildren Maggie and Robert, who stood beside him on stage, would live in world with frequent space travel, a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and autism and advances in mental health care.

“I’m not certain I’ll get to the moon, but Maggie and Robert will,” he said.

Gingrich acknowledged that his pitch for a moon colony – delivered to voters in Florida’s beleaguered Space Coast – was “not my most clever idea,” or at least according to Callista.

In 1994, Gingrich helped Republicans retake the House after 40 years. But he has since been criticized, including this year, by some of those House Republicans for lacking leadership skills.

The Obama re-election campaign released a web video Wednesday that included clips for the primaries in which Gingrich criticized Romney on issues from immigration to Romney's career as a venture capitalist.

Smarter than Tea Party people? Who knows... I would wager that blanket tea party supports and blanket Obama supporters probably average out the same.

Anyone who supports any politician blindly is an idiot as far as I'm concerned.
