Gingrich: 'I have to win Georgia'

(CNN) - Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, campaigning in Atlanta ahead of the Georgia primary March 6, made clear he has to win the state he represented in Congress.

"I have to win Georgia, I think, to be credible in the race," said Gingrich, who has won only one primary so far, in neighboring South Carolina.

    Yeah., you do, Newt. Don't let Super Tuesday turn into a day of campaign reconcilliation. The Romney Machine has bringing its' weapons to bear on you again. I heard Michail Steele compare it to the Death Star with its' super laser.

    Newt thinks Georgia will make him "credible". Credible for what, his morals discredited him long time ago, he's just trying to rewrite his own history. Slim bucket.

    You have to go away, Newt, and stop being part of the Rove scam to Elect the Next Neocon Robot. You're only in this to make sure the GOBP nominates yet another psychopathic 1%er neocon to look our for the interests of the filthy rich while shafting the rest of America. In short, you're nothing but a tool.

    The old "catholic" adulterer does not have to win anything. It does not matter. He should just go home to his geriatric
    barbie and stop talking.

    Yes, winning GA will erase decades of non-credible, irrational ideological nincompoopery. Yep.

    Newt, after Super Tuesday, if the results don't get you a significant number of delegates, please withdraw from the race. Please accept reality. You do yourself and the part no good by continuing a personal jihad.

    "Please accept reality."

    He hasn't done that for nigh on 40 years. What makes you think he'd do it now?

    For an extreme right wing secular McCarthyist and Bircher, he still has a lot of crazy supporters.
