I’m a long time admirer of Barry as well as sharing his hobby of being a radio ham.
He was approached by right wing religious nutters and sent them packing.
The current right wing creationist nutters make Barry seem like a fountain of common sense and unless the average American is consumed with daft
dogma to the extent of Bachman et al then Obama will win easily by default.

My fave Goldwater quote, in response to Jerry Falwell saying that any true Christian must support Israel - “Any true Christian should kick Jerry Falwell’s ass.”

There are a couple of upsides to a Newt candidacy. One is that I think Pres Obama will trounce him in the election. It will also mark the last time anyone will have to listen to a “family values” lecture from the right without having the right to laugh in their faces.

A big question will be whether or not the right manages to rally around whoever does win the nomination, or whether they stay divided.

I am also forced to wonder how many right wingers would opt to not vote at all rather than voting for a candidate they didn’t like or (horrors!) voting for Obama.

re: #4 dragonfire1981

I doubt they would vote for Pres Obama but they may just stay home. Are they ready to vote in a whoremonger for President and a tramp who slept with a married man for 6 years as First Lady?

Given that he’s barely even begun to discuss his many laudable achievements this term, the state of the economy(which cannot in any way be blamed on Obama, and the public certainly aren’t) and the way many independents were suckered into believing the Tea Party was something other than the extreme right of the republican party - I think it’s inevitable Obama will win.
And it’s easy to understand that he could win by a landslide. Hi was the first presidential campaign I saw succeed without having to spend money and ethics on negative advertising. I thought it might cost him, and in some areas it did.
But I think if he does the same thing this time around, he’ll succeed even more - because the last three years has been nothing but a negative attack ad on Obama, media-wide. The people are sick of it, and want to hear not only constructive ideas, but also that we must be willing and able to speak to our neighbors about how to improve our communities, without screaming past each other.
Obama is a master at all that.

It is my hope that Gingrich wins the nomination, and then does Newt things throughout the campaign that sends him and the GOP to it’s worst drubbing since 1964, thus hoisting Limbaugh/Hannity/Beck et al on their own petards.

Actually, Mitt Romney and his ultra-cynical flip-flop pandering can do that too. Remember how that strategy worked-out for John Kerry in 2004? In fact, pretty much any GOP candidate this season is practically a guaranteed loser. With opponents like these, Obama would have to suffer a major blow to the head to screw-up this election.

Agreed. The GOP must bring a serious candidate to the table. The current crop is hurting the Country. If any of those kooks were to win USA and in turn, the world will suffer. The least noxious front runners is Mitt. And knowing him, if he were to win, would hopefully flip back to his stances he held while Gov.
