Former Rep. Bob Walker (R) of Pennsylvania, a longtime Gingrich ally, says that the campaign has yet to mobilize Gingrich supporters or surrogates on Capitol Hill,

Right!...because in a crowded field, you don't want to get clear and take the lead. that would just be...WTF?!?! That makes NO political sense!

Is Newtie afraid he'll peak too soon? Really? Sandbagging to stay down with the midgets, loons and cranks? Last one out of the clown car wins???

How about, 'the campaign has yet to mobilize supporters or surrogates because they are all waiting to see who wins Iowa before committing'?

You can lodge your little protest tantrum vote all you want and it will do nothing but elect people hell bent on destroying the country. In case you haven't noticed, there are only two viable political parties in America. While I don't like this situation, I'm not a toddler who acts without any concern for the consequence of my actions.

All the wailing and wishing for either a viable third party candidate/independent or a true progressive Democrat whose views align 100% with yours is pure fantasy under our entrenched political system.

Instead of lodging your meaningless protest vote for President and ushering in a Newt/Santorum administration, perhaps your energies are better spent working to remove corporate hegemony over American politics.

Exactly. Newt can't find supporters on Capitol Hill because there aren't any, and will not be any. Newt knows this. That's why this is just a book selling tour for him.

The question of whether Obama merits a second term is far less relevant, to me, than the question of whether any of the train wrecks running on the GOP side merit a first.

There's no way to fix that, starting at the presidential level. It needs to start with voter education and local/state races. In the mean time, supporting the least-bad presidential candidate who actually has a chance at winning is probably the sanest course of action.

If you want to go beyond the two party system, you need to get people away from the first-past-the-post voting system as well.

Good luck.

So you're going to sit home and pout or support some D insurgent candidate? Fact is the president has done as well as possible given a filibuster happy senate and a lunatic house. And if you tell me he had 60 votes in the senate I'll know your just trolling. Lieberman and Nelson do not a 60 make. Seriously... This is my problem with the far left of my party. You act like the president could somehow have waved a wand and the republicans would just fall into line. The Rs number one priority was NOT the economy. It was destroying the president. Makes things sort of tough.

But sure... Pout. Stay home. Because that wouldn't help elect more lunatics to congress at all. Lunatics whose sole purpose in life is to dismantle every important democratic initiative (SS, Medicare, etc) since FDR.

Don't know Newt do you? Newt has toyed with running for President for two decades. If he wasn't forced out of office earlier he would of run earlier. Of course he wants it and is delusional enough to think he could win it.

Thanks, although my sarcasm detector blinked.

While this is a thread about a presidential candidate wannabee, not voting for Democrats or Republicans extends down to the most local offices. The fact that happens to also be a presidential election year doesn't change that. Your and my definition of 'sanity' vary. So do our views on the extent of changes needed in the voting system.

You can often judge a person's true intentions by their actions. Newt's actions, including taking a vacation at the very beginning of his campaign, his ridiculous flip-flop criticisms on Libya, failing to have a good staff on the ground in Iowa, and failing to submit the needed votes to get on the ticket in Virginia, shows he is either incapable of running even a rudimentary political campaign and does not deserve the nomination, or, he has no intentions of winning the nomination.

Did I say it did? My point...you missed it. There's this thing called pragmatism. I realize that the current crop of Democratic elected officials doesn't meet your ideologically rigid standards. Hell, they don't meet mine, either, and I'm guessing you and I probably agree on most issues. Given that the only other VIABLE choice for President is 1 bazillion times worse, I'll pragmatically choose to vote for someone like Obama.

Simultaneously, I will not join or contribute money to the Democratic Party and will instead contribute time, talent and treasure to efforts, either legislative or judicial, to remove corporate influence from politics. When the Democratic...or Republican Part for that matter (snerk) joins me in that effort, I'll rejoin one of them.

See...pragmatism.
