On Dutch local news, the opinion of a US politics watchdog was that it'll likely be Romney, but Gingrich would -from a political view- be more interesting since it would spur genuine debate between the two parties.

Lol...things are already far, far too "interesting", IMO...

Can you add Colbert as an option to the poll?
You mean Herman Cain ?

If the GOP nominates Newt, it will be a huge gift to Obama, IMO.

How many women will pull the lever for a serial philanderer, knowing that they could be putting a plastic-looking home-wrecker with screwed-on hair in the WH as First Lady? At some point, even evangelicals might have to look beyond the "no abortion" bar they set and judge the moral character and trustworthiness of the candidates.

It's more than just women who are disgusted by him. I will never understand how it's acceptable for someone to go around preaching about religious moral values but be a total dirtbag in their own personal life. Drives me crazy and I'm sure it just gives the groups he claims to represent bad names.

Obama is the "least of evils" this time around.

What a sad Republican line up; that must be embarrassing for most republicans to have these people representing their party. The republican identity seems to have changed a lot since I was born.

I heard a crack team of republican scientists is work diligently on figuring out how to clone Ronald Reagan.

I really do not approve of what the Super Pacs can do. And they can do it with or without a candidates permission. The Supreme Court in my opinion has created a nuclear mud slinger. http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarep...229super-pacs-devastate-gingrich-ratings.html
The supreme court is one of the things the founding fathers screwed up almost completely. Political appointments to the most powerful position in the country next to the president? Only 9 justices that perpetually vote 5-4 on party lines? One person on the supreme court holds too much power with a tie breaking vote in the majority of decisions.

The supreme court should be representative of the population and should be chosen by their peers, not politicians. If this had happened sooner we wouldn't have so many really bad decisions like super pacs, equating corporations with people and many others that regular people know are wrong.

Reagan was VASTLY overrated, a joke to anyone with intelligence.

But Christy is a whale. I can't imagine him being electable just due to his appearance, IMO.
This is a sad but true comment on the electorate.

As far as a "fresh" candidate, it is possible for Romney, Newt and Paul to split the delegates and deadlock the convention. They would all be so "beat up" by the process that the convention could draft someone else: Condy Rice, Paul Ryan, Bobby Jindal, Jeb Bush?

Skippy

PS Maybe Christie should try Nutri-System!

Not by me. Either wrt his acting or administrative abilities.

... a joke to anyone with intelligence.
Perhaps, but imho he was an inspiring figure to McCarthyites and jelly beanists.
