    No worries, Newt. The party needs you for your mind. I think you and Romney should team up and follow Obama around as you proposed and cream his a$$ after every phony campaign speech he makes. Seems to be getting easier by the minute....

    Thank you Newt for going out like a winner. Sorry the world was not ready for your big thinking ideas. Maybe the next one. You brought a lot of people to the debates with those ideas, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.

    He should stay in the race so he can dillute the GOP vote thereby ensuring that Obama will win!

    Mitt Romney who would enjoy firing people for doing their job, resurrect the cold war does not warrant support.

    I predict that after the presidential nomination, the political landscape will have a different hue and Mitt Romney will have a new job.

    Mitt Romney, the wannabe entrepreneur, will be collecting Newt Gingrich along with other household garbage.
