View Full Version : Newt's out -- Romney in?
Newt's past, especially his progressive comments are going to sink him with conservatives. He has now fallen behind Romney according to Rasmussen.
So Romney is the new flavor of the week? As for me , I dont care much for him, but I like him more than the debate team president.
As of December 13 Nationally, Gingrich 17 was Points Ahead of Romney according to NPR polling -- cant deceide if this indecisiveness is good or bad long term for conservatives -- probably good, as Cain-like crap can be exposed now rather than later.

I'm curious to see how Paul's poll numbers fare over the next two weeks. The Republican establishment is going to pummel him up to the caucus, but Mitt's ground game in Iowa is awful, and Gingrich continues to fade fast. For the last 12 hours, Mitt, Paul, and Romney have been trading places in first place in the Intrade Iowa Caucus market, but it's finally shaking out in Mitt's favor after the day of media is in the books, and Mitt (30.5%) is coming in first place in that market with Paul (28.1%) behind him by two points and Gingrich fading to 25%.
It's hard to conceive that Paul lost any support from his positions at the debate. Nobody who is already backing Ron Paul sees his positions on going to war with Iran as a surprise at all. No one watched that and said, "oh my God, Ron Paul want to pursue a peaceful foriegn policy! I'm switching my vote to someone who wants to be aggressive!"
I guess we'll see.

Romney is not a war hawk like Newt Gingrich, and although people hate him for Romneycare, he is still more electable in a general election than Gingrich.
Uh, he is exactly that, just another fear mongering, Right Wing war hawk.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57323692-503544/romney-and-gingrich-willing-to-attack-iran-to-prevent-them-from-getting-nukes/) and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich both said it is worth using the United States military to attack Iran in order to prevent the oil rich nation from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
Romney's Iran strategy (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/22/mitt-romney-iran-obama-gop-foreign-policy_n_1104519.html) clearly depends on sending a message to Tehran that, if elected president, he would not shrink from using military force to destroy their nuclear weapons program.
"Mitt Romney will make clear to the Iranian regime through actions -- not just words -- that a military option to deal with its nuclear program remains on the table
Romney also said in the book that Iran is "at war" with the U.S.
And in Iraq, Romney argues that Obama's decision to withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of this year has created "an enormous opportunity" for Iran.
"The entire region views our pullout as an American defeat and an Iranian victory, which has shaken the confidence of our allies," Senor said.
