He would be a great improvement over that clown in the White House now.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

I was very disapointed when he decided not to run in the last election. As of now, I'm not sure who I like better between Newt and Palin. It's almost a toss up for me. Unfortunately there is plenty of time to make up my mind.

In 1962, Gingrich married Jackie Battley, his former high school geometry teacher, when he was 19 years old; she was seven years his senior at 26 years old. Jackie raised their two daughters, worked to put Newt through graduate school and was a loyal political wife. Gingrich and Battley divorced in 1980. Battley has charged that Gingrich discussed the terms of their divorce settlement while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery. According to L.H. Carter, his campaign treasurer, Newt said of Battley: "She's not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of the President. And besides, she has cancer." Newt has vigorously denied saying anything like this and his staff has stated that L. H. Carter was a disgruntled employee left behind in Georgia. He refused to pay alimony or child support. His hometown First Baptist Church had to take up a collection to support the family.
However, my point--if McCain can be forgiven/forgotten, I'm sure Gingrich will be as well. (And while I'll try to keep an open mind, I'm sure this part of his biography will rankle me as well if it comes to that, but there are bigger objections I have to him, so it's probably a moot point as far as my vote goes.)

I don't care if the GOP runs Donald Duck against Osama in 12, Donald would get my vote. Newt is my kind of Conservative and would be one of my first choices for the office. No way I vote for Romney unless he is the nominee and then I would be voting against Osama and not necessarily for the former gov of the Peoples Republic of Mass.
