…I think, best cialis sildenafil “Why aren’t we taking Newt more seriously?”

I mean, viagra sales sovaldi sure, the fact that we call the guy “Newt” is one of the reasons, but he’s been having great debates.

    Peasant: Well, she turned me into a newt!
    Sir Bedevere: A newt?
    Peasant: [long pause] … I got better.

    When I was kid, I had a baby salamander for a pet. I named him “Tiny” because he was my newt.

    Newt is a college professor, just like King Obama. He is quite smart but unlike the Democrats, the GOP are smart enough not to nominate this guy. Too much baggage. College proffesors, as we have seen from Obama, are not the best people to run the country.

    Yeah, and Texas governors have been a great choice so far.

    Well, more people think Obama is as bad if not worse than Bush. So, I guess IL. senators are even a worse choice.

    Dan: That’s one word spelled wrong, the same word spelled right, and one illegal period after a state abbreviation. Did you say you were a teacher?

    Foust, besides being idiot, I guess you are now the Internet English teacher.
    I guess when you can’t say anything smart, you, foust, say something very stupid.
    But based by on your comments now and in the past, I suspect you live in an institution somewhere, maybe Mendota?

    3 words. Too. Much. Baggage.

    Hey guys, no personal attacks. Disagree with the position, please don’t attack the person.

    Really, Elliot? Newt? I’ll grant you this, he is good at crafting a message. Problem is that his message isn’t consistent. Not to say that people can’t adjust their opinions or ideas, but philosophical flexibility at a core level is what troubles me.

    This early primary season is quite interesting. Part of the reason that people’s attention is shifting all over from one candidate to the next is that we are giving them each serious consideration.

    Herman Cain is the current flavor of the week. That’s good. He deserves to have the spotlight for a bit while we see what he is about. Not that I like every facet of his plan, the idea of a flat tax and simplification of the tax code appeals to me. Everyone should have some skin in the game and the government shouldn’t be in the business of picking winners and losers.

    Bachmann shined early but, like Palin, she leaves people in doubt about her qualifications despite being well-liked on a personal level. (Rightly so.)

    Romney keeps bouncing up and down in the polls, but I agree that Romneycare is a weight around his neck.

    Many, including me, were optimistic about Perry but his Texas appeal doesn’t seem to be translating well outside the Lone Star state. I didn’t have a problem with the in-state tuition for children of illegals program. It’s not like they were handing out scholarships to northbound border pedestrians for Pete’s sake…it’s about people trying to better themselves. I also think Bachmann (and Santorum) overzealously went after him on the HPV vaccine issue. I agreed with the initial criticism, but claiming the vaccine was harming/killing people was going way too far.

    Santorum? Maybe his bounce in the polls will come next and we can focus on him a bit.

    Ron Paul? No way in hell. Mark Belling did have an interesting idea about making him the Fed chairman or maybe putting him in a cabinet level position…as long as it’s not State or Defense. SecState would be entertaining for about a month or two, but realistically he’d do a lot of damage there.
