Gingrich pins hopes on hashtags

Dothan, Alabama (CNN) - Newt Gingrich may occasionally refer to a Twitter hash tag as a hash mark but he is relying on the Internet to reach out to voters, one tweet and Facebook friend at a time.

The Republican presidential candidate doesn't have as much money to spend on television advertising as his counterparts, but Gingrich is devoting considerable resources to maximize his online presence.

    The bold-faced lie Gingrich told about President Obama's reaction to high gas prices showed me once again that this man is incapable of telling the truth – even when he knows he'll be proven to be a liar within munutes. He is either a pathological liar or he knows his followers will refuse to listen to the actual truth when it is before their eyes. Either situation is piriful. Even the Republican Clown Car should bump one out ocassionally...

    And the republican party of god pins its hopes on pope sanctimonious, emperor newt, and robot ron.

    Onward to the moon base to create a greater reagan star wars system to protect europe from iran and the usa from illegal space aliens. Governor palin awaits you with her fully powered death star.

    Now newt has resorted to lieing to the kids about 2.50 a gallon gas to get their attention. It was half that amount when little george bush took office.

    The first good thing I've see about Newt Gingrich. If the Santorum (who proves every day he is a no-nothing fool) disapproves of Newt, then there must be something good about Newt that I have overlooked. More likely,Santorum is misquoting Gingrich so he can criticize him. What a mess this Republican party has become.

    I cannot believe this secular McCarthyist and radical Bircher with anger issues, is still in the race. Adelson may pick his nose, but he sure cannot pick a winner.

    For a moment there I thought he was talking about his tuba playing ugly wife.

    The man is out of touch. Clearly he cannot win, yet he persists. He is obviously not Presidential material if he cannot even understand what people are telling him.

    Apparently the campaign is taking it's tole. This idiot even looks bad. When desires are swept aside by reality, this happens. Newt: You're not qualified, mentally, or emotionally to run this nation. You never were qualified. Forget about it.

    Americans do not want an adulterer as President.
    Americans do not want an adulteress as First Lady.
