    DO YOU NOTICE he is balding
    by November he will look like a bald eagle.

    but with all that money he is probably having weekly hair transplants – but that won't do – so he will probably buy a wig an expansive wig at that – and if that does not do it – he will blame it on NEWT claiming he put some destructive chemical in his hair – I can't wait to see that quote from the "blind trust" aka the power pack add – which he owns...but doesn't know anything about – SURE!!

    if you ever vote him in office we will shut down all your power ( gas, oil and electricity) and you can buy if from China who we will sell it do...

    Myself I do wonder whether I should call it a win or not. The number who voted against him (who voted for other candidates if put together), are almost the same as those who voted for him. This to my opinion is a very serious issue to Romney.

    I want to thank Newt for destroying this out of touch candidate for Obama.
