Washington (CNN) - Newt Gingrich affirmed in a radio interview Thursday that he plans to take his first official step toward a presidential bid later in the day after a meeting with Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.
"Callista and I are prepared to see if there are enough folks who want to see if we can get this country back on the right track," Gingrich told Georgia radio host Martha Zoller.
The former House Speaker said he plans to launch a website to accompany the presidential exploratory phase he is expected to announce.
The website: NewtExplore2012.com
Gingrich said the site will go live at some point Thursday afternoon.
Great! Can't wait to hear you defend your family values. Can wait for you to spin your trying to get your cancer stricken hospitalized wife to sign divorce papers while you are having an affair with a staffer. A newt is a slimy lizzard.
Newt, the country IS on the right track. Which RIGHT track are YOU talking about. The one where you screw the white/blue collar workers while you make billionaires out of millionares? The one where you use middle-class tax dollars to pay for Wall Street bonuses? The one where you give your buddies BIG tax breaks on the pretense of creating job, but never do, instead it goes to buy bigger yachts? Is that the RIGHT TRACK you believe in?
After you lose? Get ready to join a union and hopefully by then they will still have their barganing rights! Didn't you get fired from faux yesterday
Really? There is no surprise here, he has been running for months now. Good luck, you are going to need it trying to explain away all or your indiscretions and rather colorful past!
1994 called- they want their Fringe Conservative hypocrite back.
This is excellent news for America in general, and certainly for Democrats everwhere!!
This pompous, cheap, self-serving, ego-maniacal hypocrite is sure to do substantial damage to the republican party's chances in 2012. It is especially important now that Sarah "The Dancing Monkey" Palin is losing ground rapidly.
This is wonderful news!!!
Wonder what Karl has to say about all this?
And so the massive poisoning of the American minds, otherwise known as the campaign for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination begins. He has no chance of winning. He's simply there to set the bar for criticizing the President to a ridiculously low and vitriolic level. Where's Newt's birth certificate?!
And my dog wants to drive. Ain't going to happen.
Newt, first, take a laxative. Then, rethink your statement about getting the country back on the right track. We need a NEW track, the old ones don't work anymore, not on either side of the aisle. NEW, please.
I hope he wins. The Republicans and Tea Partiers are split on who they want. This will make an interesting primary with a guarantee of another four years for our President. He just needs to sit back and watch the show.
Are we morally bankrupt enough, as a nation, to consider for President the man who committed adultry at the same time he was prosecuting a president for committing adultry? Who is utterly lacking in ethics enough that they could back this scum? At what point do people dismiss those with a "do as I say, not as I do" attitude as hypocrits?
It seems like Sarah Palin has fallen off the radar recently. Maybe she took the hint to leave well enough alone! I pray too that Newt Gringrich does the same. I like his intelligence....I don't like his delivery and I don't like his unfortunate BAGGAGE! Newt...Don't waste your money or the time!
"Fools rush in"
Bring them on, it only makes Obama’s job easier in 2012.
The GOP is an empty vessel!
Waste of time. Too many skeletons in that closet. Also doesnt possess the values nor the character to hold that office.
The way to keep this country on the right track is for Mr. Gingrich to stay as far away from the white house as possible. The man is a pox on our great nation!
The reality of this is that people don't forget things especially they don't forget when a man runs out on his wife for another woman , not once but twice and to top it all off ...he left his wife while she had cancer ....I think your credibility just went out the window newt !!!!.....he knows he doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell running for Potus................
exposing the newt will be entertaining, but make sure the kids aren't watching.
Again, HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA..........What a loser! What a waste of time for everyone.
I'm with you Newt! Go for It.
Now this guy is a real piece of work. He dumped 2 wives right after each one was diagnosed with breast cancer. A real genuine human being if there ever was one. Not to mention he left politics years ago in disgrace.
