Newt an Influence Pedaler?

Because Romney accused Newt of being an Influence Pedaler during last night's debate, I'm voting for Newt!! A Pedaler in office would be a great thing!

Vote for ME (for dictator). We'll have car-free Wednesdays, or something. Oh, and free beer.

He sure isn't pedaling bicycles.

But I was blown away today when I read of him saying that we should establish a permanent presence on the Moon and go to Mars ASAP. He ruined my record of thinking that everything he says is wrong.

I realize that he said it on the Space Coast of Florida, and that his conviction level in saying it is moot, but never the less he said it.

These are strange times we live in.

LOL

I think Newt would have serious problems with the GOP base because of his open marriage comments. (Of course, though, that goes over great with the Bush crowd. Shhhh!)

Actually, I think Newt has the same problem as most politicians. He's a narcissist. However, he's a particularly obvious one which means he comes off as mean spirited and out of touch to most people, which is basically what narcissists are all about. But many of them are much better at hiding it. They have to be, denial is their middle name.

You almost would have to be a narcissist to want to be President, IMO.
