Would YOu vote for President Newt?

DES MOINES, Iowa – Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday he's seriously considering seeking the Republican presidential nomination and will announce his decision early next year.

Gingrich, 67, told The Associated Press that he would focus on helping Republican candidates through the midterm elections in November, then decide in February or March whether to seek the GOP nomination.

"I've never been this serious," Gingrich said.

  • Wow, Lori and I agree on something? Miracles do happen!

    Nope. Newt is NOT a Republican who could get my vote. Let's see who else runs. The GOP has a GREAT chance in 2012, but the wrong choice will blow it and they'll wind up losing the White House again.

  • If it came down to him or Obama, you better believe Newt would get my vote.

  • Newt makes a career out of being the "opposition." If he was ever the one in charge of going forward he would be completely lost. Remember the "Contract with America?" he he he hehehehe

    I would live to see him run though, just so we can remind all of those with short memories about his ethically challenged past as he somehow tries to convince people that he was wronged, in some way.

  • Well hobbits has a point. However I would hope someone stronger would prevail during the primaries. Or I'd vote 3rd party. All depends on the other candidates.

  • When are they going to fine Charlie Rangle????? Hold him to the same standard you are blasting Newt to. Yes, I would vote for him in the light of who is the choice right now.
