    Newt Gingrich made a video in which he ruins any hope of Romney winning the presidential election. If Romney somehow wins the primaries, Obama will smash him in the general election.

    While this video is out there on the internet, it really hasn't gone viral. We here at ED could really fuck up a man's entire political career if we got this shit viral.

    It was all over Fox the beginning of the week (Yes, I watch Fox.) Mitt Romney's too far ahead to be beaten, they should have made this earlier.

    No it isn't bad, we need someone to watch the propaganda. Sometimes I watch it when I am with The Prophet because I feel that I am too exposed to liberal media outlets and it makes me biased. We like to shake it up with some rightist media and remind ourselves why we are liberals in the first place lol

    I do the same with MSNBC, I watched their coverage on a few debates to see the difference.

    As much as I am not a fan of Romney, Newt Gingrich is even worse.

    Newt Gringrich is smart, but he has a lot of skeletons in his closet. Romney makes sense as a candidate, as he worked at a firm that rescued failing companies, among other things. He's qualified for the position, but he'll probably just be a mediocre president. I'm more concerned about the 2016 election.

    I am a registered republican and I am not even voting this year. None of the candidates appeal to me at all, and this is coming from someone who voted for GW Bush,
    twice.

    Gingrich is the least appealing to me of all of the GOPs, because of something I heard him say regarding drugs and drug addiction. He is "hard on drugs", which is exactly the opposite of what we need right now. Drug addicts shouldn't be treated like criminals, they should be treated as patients, and if Newt Gingrich becomes President he is going to start unraveling all of the work that has been going on in the last few years and using the Federal government to trump state medical marijuana and decriminalization laws.

    I don't care much about people's views on drugs. My body has bad reactions to the few I've tried. I just hate seeing the idiots walking around high school talking about how stoned they are. :rage:

    Basically drug addicts need to be in treatment, not jail, and if Gingrich is elected he is going to start putting addicts in jail because of his archaic views on drugs and drug addiction. People who have no experience with drugs or people who use drugs have no understanding. It is a medical issue) They think that threat of prosecution is enough (or should be enough) to keep an addict sober. Not even close, and then you get the prison system congested with 50% of the inmates in for non-violent drug offenses.

    We aren't talking about dealers of traffickers, we are talking about addicts. I am all for prosecuting those who are bringing large amounts of hard drugs into our country and making thousands/millions of dollars from it. Execute them for all I care, but drug addicts shouldn't be sent to jail for being a drug addict. I did 2 years in jail for being a drug addict, and I was getting high in the parking lot on the way each and every time I was released. I went to treatment and started taking some meds to help me with it and I have been off hard drugs for like 3 years now. It pisses me off when I hear shitheads like him saying that he is going to lock up addicts because I know from experience that's not what we need to help the drug problem in this country.

    People like him don't really understand how the world works in that department. People from his generation have had their heads filled with all kinds of bullshit about drugs in general.

    @zaiger I was under the impression you were for drug use. Being only against it, and quitting yourself, because it was illegal.

    As far as I'm concerned, junkies shouldn't be caged or treated. How else can one profit from their miseries? If they want to get better then they'll get better. These people are seen as scum by society and if the government didn't throw their asses in prison, they'd get lynched or shot trying to break into somebody's home.

    I don't care if people use drugs. If they are dangerous and robbing people then yeah throw them in jail, but if someone gets caught with an amount of drugs for personal consumption it is detrimental to have them do a year or more in prison for it.

    I don't know, bro. I'd really enjoy seeing the kids of (certain) affluent families getting their asses pumped in prison.

    I hate Gingrich's guts too, I just think he is doing a great service to his country showing what an asshole romney is. Gingrich has every single trait that describes a clinical psychopath on tow.

    @Dr. Rice You do realise that if Romney is gone then it'll be a contest between Santorum and Paul, right? Do you really want that?

    Santorum wants to send gays to prison. Ron Paul is the clear choice.

    I could vote in the New Hampshire caucus if I wanted to, as I still have a New Hampshire ID. However I prefer not to encourage any of the idiots who are going to lose to Obama anyways.

    In New Hampshire, it's called a primary, not a caucus. And no you can't vote in the NH primary if you wanted to because it's over now. :>

    I want huntsman to win. I wouldn't mind Ron Paul because he would be a pretty ineffective president (for any of his radical ideas would be opposed by a democrat controlled congress that is going to happen after the 2012 elections). What he could successfully accomplish is reducing the power of the presidency and allowing congress more power.

    Picking from this field is like picking which pile of dogshit you're going to faceplant into.

    No matter what, you lose, and you end up with a bad taste in your mouth.

    Not that Nigbamma's much better.

    If Gingrich focuses on destroying Romney (which he is and will continue doing), he will exhaust himself, and drop out of the race. Then we've got two birds down.
    Santorum didn't do well in NH, and he's not gonna do well beyond South Carolina.

    It will be (ideally):
    • Huntsman
    • Paul
    • Santorum (if his head doesn't ASPLODE after SC)
    • Perry (if he starts acting like a serious candidate)
    EDIT: Sorry, I meant:
    • Romney (Gingrich's attacks won't be able to completely knock this guy out of the race)
    • Huntsman
    • Paul
