Newt is done. It's over.
Man, I hope Newt stays in long enough to do this next debate. This is going to be the best entertainment ever. Move over Tim Tebow, we have a new ratings champ.
Isn't the interview supposed to air on Nightline the same night as the debate?
He called his 2nd wife (while still married to her) from his apt. while in bed with his current wife and told his 2nd wife that he loved her and wanted an open marriage.
I'm not sure how that is going to play. It may lose some votes from women but I doubt many men will care.
There is supposed to be a snippet of the interview released this morning at any time.
I think you're right. But this all seems to me to be deckchair rearrangement schema. Nobody can beat Obama + Leftist Media.
Democracy worked, mostly, for 232 years. It stopped working in 2008.
I would say where I think this goes but the Thought Police would be knocking at my door before long.
You may be right but I think sometimes people just don't want to be associated with someone with a bad image. "Oh you voted for Newt? That scumbag?"
Unless you truly believe in the candidate's message, I think any bad press will scare away voters. Perry endorsing Newt though might neutralize the effect.
I think that Newt's main problem is that most of the older generation already knows this stuff, but that is Mitt's strongest voting block. The way that this could hurt Newt is with the 18-30 year olds who aren't that familiar with his past. Ron Paul already captures a big portion of them, and that should increase a bit if they start to see this stuff on Newt and become more familiar with his personal past.
He might be done in actuality, because the GOP mainline has chosen their candidate. They did when Mittens quit in 2008. I have said this before.
Newt will NOT quit. He has plausible deniability on his side. The jilted ex is pissed card will be played.
Watch and see.
Damn 377, it gets harder and harder to call you dumb each and every day. But you will still call me a conspiracy nutter, I am sure.
