    Just wondering if Cyber Newt is as hypocritical as Human Newt?

    Yeah, I know. It's only a "virtual" Contract With America. But consider, he's also thinner and can jump as high as Super Mario.

    Typical Republican. They are all a bunch of empty headed dolls.

    Well, look at it this way: At least he's trying to shake the filth of DC off his feet. Wish more would try the same. This bulbous nosed debouchery of the politicians today is a stomach turning stench.

    I was there and he did a very good job. He is a great speaker with great ideas.

    I saw a piece on this. If he runs, this is supposed to help get him elected? I don't think so–

    Oh,I get it CNN; It's all a game. He's going to run but he decided not to do it? This was all a virtual reality media experience? Thanks CNN but try being more professional about reporting non-events.
