Gingrich outlines a Southern revival strategy

Washington (CNN) - Newt Gingrich said Sunday he is plotting a Southern revival, while Rick Santorum and Ron Paul seek stronger showings in upcoming caucuses to slow front-runner Mitt Romney's momentum after his second straight victory in the Republican presidential race.

Romney's triumph Saturday in the Nevada caucuses, following his convincing triumph last week in Florida, bolstered the perception that the former Massachusetts governor may be unstoppable in his second bid for the GOP nomination.

    Yep, and scheming, and conniving, and a lot of other things. His time is back in the 1930s (In Germany).

    No thanks

    If I were advising Newt Gingrich, I would say revert back to the Bain bashing, and what came out of all that which was the fact that Mitt Romney, a man who wants to be our president, is offshoring his money to keep from paying taxes to the country where he wants to be president. That was a winning message for Newt, and I don't understand why he did a 180 on that message. Was he threatened by the powers that be? What?

    Oh, please, keep him out of the south. He's is one of the biggest embarrassments to come out of Georgia.

    No Southern Strategy addresses Newts character flaws, his moral & ethical shortcomings, or his faux intellectualism when compared to President Barack H. Obama.

    GOP donors, save your money for a better slate of candidates in 2016.
