    Let's face it no candidate for the presidential office is worth the time it took to post this comment .

    Poor Newt, his presidential campaign is going to provide a lot of fodder for Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O.Brian, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel.

    Newt, send me your campaign donations. I won't waste the money. By running for President, you most assuredly will.

    So far it looks like it's gonna be Obama for another 4. Newt has no chance, Trump is a cute novelty and most people couldn't recognize Romney if you showed them a head-shot. As much as many people that are dissatisfied with Obama, the Republicans have acted very childish and put on a complete circus act for the past 5 years. Unless a strong Dem candidate shows up, I think people will vote Obama just to avoid a Trump or Newt.

    Newt has already burned his bridges, there is no going back or forward. Keep your job with Fox news.....that is if they are paying you...

    Hypocrisy at its best.
    How can you separate one's past from him or his future... while dragging the Nation with Clinton and Monica... he was doing what Clinton was being persecuted for... Imagine people still believing in him or contributing to him!!
