Now, I hate to bring this up as I really like Newt, but are we making the same mistake we always make as Republicans by sending an old man up against a younger one?

I know Reagan rocked, but the Gipper always looked pretty darn youthful for his age.

Newt's 68 and Obama is 50. Thanks to the 19th Amendment I think that's really going to impact things at the polls. What do you folks think?

He looks pretty good for 68 in my opinion. I mean dude's got a full head of hair and isn't half as wrinkled as Perry is. He's just tubby and geeky looking which I think would do more damage than his actual age would.

Good thing Catchers Mitt is gonna win the nom, and we don't have to worry about this!

Chronologically? He's getting there.

Politcally? No. Neoconservatism started with liberals in the early 70's and was not supported by the Republicans until roughly 1980.

Uhhhhh, we have all had a front row seat of Mr. young turk taking his hand at playing POTUS. I would love to have an old experienced old man in charge after watching the horrors of Obama.

I won't hold your youth and inexperience against you.

Yea, the public fell in love with McCain.

If the Republicans run another old fuck, they'll be buying another losing ticket.

McStain lost because he had no fight, no clear message, and no clue. He did not lose because of his age.

If Newt picks Rubio as a running mate that would help his image. Also we could get another 8 years of not having a dem for prez.

Doesn't work when you're running against the incumbent.
