"Romney, Perry, Santorum, Bachmann, Huntsman, even Paul, are no more than critics of a system gone moribund. "

They do not inspire us. Their ideas, even when worth investigating (flat tax, etc.), are no more than rehashes of proposals we have heard for decades.
Only Newt dances. Only Newt, on occasion, is original. Only Newt -- and here is the important part -- has the capacity to wake us up. What attracts me about the man is the very thing that Romney criticized, the part that wants to explore the moon and stars, maybe even mine them.

Politicians aren't supposed to do that. -- -- Roger L. Simon » Explaining Newt

Newt is flawed-so what- the man is a patriot and loves this country.

Newt is a slumgullion of bad acts and false statements.

"the new boss may just be like the old boss"

You mean his grades were faked and his parents communists?

"Newt is a slumgullion"

Possibly, but still tasty. What do you want, rubber biscuits?
