18 reasons why Newt Gingrich will never become the nominee - by New Gingrich

18 Newt Gingrich quotes that will disqualify him from ever being President.


This one quote will cost him Florida and a bunch of ther states:

Social Security "get rid of it (by letting it) wither on the vine"

“Now, we don’t get rid of it in round one because we don’t think that that’s politically smart, and we don’t think that’s the right way to go through a transition. But we believe it’s going to wither on the vine because we think people are voluntarily going to leave it — voluntarily.

or then there are these

12 “She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.”
~Newt Gingrich, talking about his first wife after divorcing her.

13. “I read Men Who Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them and I found frightening pieces that related to…my own life.”

~Newt Gingrich, talking about his problems with women.

Nate Silver: Romney's $ 10,000 bet offer triggers sell of on Intrade


Within 4 hours of the offer of a bet Romney's Intrade price loses 10% of its value while Gingrich goes up 10%.

Here is Silver

Saturday night’s debate will probably be best remembered for Mitt Romney offering a $10,000 bet to Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. Mr. Perry was wise to decline the wager, which concerned the language that Mr. Romney used to describe his support for a health insurance mandate in his book.

But bettors at Intrade, the political futures market, are betting against Mr. Romney.

I checked the share prices for the seven major Republican contenders at 8:59 p.m. on Saturday, just before the debate began. Those prices represent estimates of the likelihood that the candidates will win their party’s nomination. At that point, Mr. Romney’s chances of winning the nomination were attributed to be 47.2 percent. They had declined to 44.4 percent, however, as of 12:27 a.m. on Sunday. Meanwhile, the share price for Newt Gingrich, who had a strong evening, rose significantly.

Sorry Professor Corey no more Soap Box (updated thread)

Edited to change the thread title and add

Thanks to the Admin to listening

(and I wanted to check about whether or not you really could edit after 24 hours.)

"Soap Box" has a connotation of somebody spewing their opinion to a crowd where "Town Square" has the connotation of a place for informed discussion.

"Soap Box" has a connotation of a mix of participants but a hefty share of incoherency (with a sprinkle of drunkenness) where "Town Square" has a connotation of serious considered opinions.

If quoted by people/media outside of DU it will sound different

"In an article by () at SOAPBOX forum at DU () pointed out . . ."

"In an article by () at the TOWNSQUARE forum at DU () pointed out . . ."

"Soap Box" conjures up the image of Professor Irwin Corey

"Town Square" conjures up the image of Ben Franklin
