Contract ON America Revisited?

Gingrich President

Interesting note, in Newt’s list of possibile candidates – do you find someone’s name conspicuously absent?

    Very sad. I’m looking for a good country. This one is on a 6-lane superhighway to hell.

    I did not see any on that list that gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling.
    Haley is the only one that did not cause a grimious and I am not sure if he is political savy enough that he hides his light under a bushel. Or is the lessor of the evils among the group.

    When ever I see Palin on someone’s list I seriously question if it is just a show or they are just so deviold of reality?

    But has anyone noticed the absence of one name that I think already has the GOP nomination in hand?

    I suspect this Newtie stuff is just fodder for the right wingers to get all fired up and keep them infighting so the powers-to-be in the GOP can busy themselves getting their inevitable candidate ready.

  4. From the linked article in the thread header:

    “I think I’m probably on a list of seven or eight possible candidates at this stage,” Gingrich said. “We have a lot of people around the country who would like to have somebody who represents a commitment to replace the current failed programs and to develop a set of solutions that are practical and workable.”

    For me, it will take much more than talking about solutions! Let’s hear just one out of the Party of No, just one that isn’t “cut taxes.” They’ve proven that one is a failure and still tout it as a solution. They may be that stupid, but the majority of American voters aren’t.

  5. If there are seven or eight potential presidential candidates, which one will take the lead and offer a direction for the party? Do they expect to be elected without doing that?

    • lillacluvr

      Yes, they do expect to be elected without providing any direction and/or evidence of past success.

      After all, the Party of No has turned into the Party of the Pure. Pure B.S., that is.

  6. Is there one of these potential seven or eight who is ‘pure’ enough? lol

    Pure enough to be nominated by the ‘purists’ and also be attractive to moderates?

    • lillacluvr

      Let’s see – purity as in carrying on your own affair down the street while pointing the accusing finger of adultery at another?

      But, I guess those Purists don’t mean ‘purity in morals’ – huh?
