Gingrich looks to Super Tuesday lift

(CNN) - Coming off a drubbing by conservative rival Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich plans to head to home turf as part of his strategy to revitalize his struggling presidential campaign with a strong showing in next month's Super Tuesday primaries.

The former House speaker will return to his native Georgia next week for a two-day campaign push, his campaign announced Wednesday.

    Keep up the Food-fight Gingrich, it is showing Americans the extent to which the Republicans have nothing left but has-beens like you and radical religious and out of touch candidates.

    Newt – the only lift you are going to get is to the moon colony your proposed. You are making yourself look foolish – do the right thing for the party and quit – you are only draining your opponents campaign funds going after you when you have no chance on earth of winning. Women won't vote for you, savvy business people won't vote for you, independents won't vote for you. Don't go down a giant loser – bow out gracefully now and show some dignity. You just have too much baggage dude – run for Senate or something where you can still make a difference.

    Santorum should announce that, if nominated, he would make Ron Paul his V.P., and assign him the single duty of reforming the Fed.

    LOOK OUT NEWT ..... There is a new leader in Catholic Town .....

    The door begins to squeak though it has opened only a crack.
    A tiny shaft of light enters into the darkness.
    Thus begins the newest episode of "INNER SANCTORUM."
    BaBummm BaBummm
    Rick is excited, kind of like an Alter Boy the first time a Catholic Priest takes a liking to him.
    Where will it lead?
    Along the Yellow Brick Primary Road where he must continue to fight off the challenges of the mean, the spiteful, the dishonest bad people ..... or ..... will his door suddenly SLAM SHUT in his face again?
    Does God know the answer?
    Many Catholics seem to think so!
    The same Catholics who support a church that condoned child molestation for centuries.
    The same Catholics who took their lawsuit money & now are able to finance the republican Catholic of the month.
    What does the future hold?
    Tune in next week (or tomorrow) for another episode of "INNER SANCTORUM."

    The Grinch may have stole Christmas, but I don't think he is going to steal the primaries.

    There will be no Superboost for Gonegrinch. Santorumn just took the conservative baton.

    Namejkane....gingrich was kicked out of his own party, and santorum lost re-election in pennsylvania which is one reason why he is available now to run for president. so your logic doesn't really make sense.

    We all know who'll be running the country if the x-gov gets elected....yes, the mormon church and as his vp, the prophet. Yes ladies and gents, get ready. It's coming. Newt, hang in there....we'll get you there.

    He'd be better off looking for a face-lift.

    Gingrinch is not a native Georgian. He was born in Pennsylvania and spent his childhood as an Army brat

    Lootin' Newton may be a little surprised at the Super Tuesday voting. He isn't nearly as loved in Georgia as he seems to remember.

    Its going to be his coffin, the ultimately undeniable gallows, instead of his resurrection. He just doesn't seem to get it; zombies seldom do.

    Too funny! Romney absolutely wipes Gingrich out with attack ads, and now Romney's entire fate is in the hands of Gingrich.
    Because if Gingrich gets out before Super Tuesday, Santorum will win the GOP nomination hands down.

    GOP, just give it up, your party does not know what it even wants...

    3 wives, 2 affairs, 1 hopeful wanna be but fading fast first lady = Gingrich

    Newt will get no lift. And discriminating Christians will vote Democratic, because they know the Republican party is not the party of God, or endorsed by God, because it only selectively picks and chooses it's moral agenda as it best suits their rhetoric to win: they care little about the poor and defenseless because they have no money or lobbyists. Get real brothers and sisters in Christ, you're being led astray if you think the Republicans are the sole moral champions of America..

    Hmmm rich guy totally out of touch with reality or a blatant racist who thinks black kids should be janitors and spanish is a "ghetto language". This is just sad.

    I don't know why Gingrich thinks he is going to look so great after super tuesday. There are 10 states casting ballots on super tuesday and the only state he is guaranteed to win is Georgia. Romney is going to win Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia and Idaho that night. Ohio is up for grabs. North Dakota is up for grabs.
    I really don't see it as a great night for Newt. He will win something at least, but probably not enough to be a national candidate. Newt is only going to win in the south.

    ►Gingrich looks to Super Tuesday lift◄
    If you look at his mug, he looks SAD – get my drift
    He’s not a young man and his attempt to be president has taken its toll
    He does not only look “defeated” – he’s beginning to look quite old!!

    Obama 2012 – LQQKn a little gray but he looks GOOD with it!!!

    Super Tuesday may turn out to be so-so Tuesday.
