Ann Coulter is going after Newt Gingrich now because Newt has not been sufficiently consistent over the years, and because Romney is inevitable and will beat Obama:

The mainstream media keep pushing alternatives to Mitt Romney not only because they are terrified of running against him, but also because they want to...

Why I Support Newt Gingrich

I have been agnostic on the Republican primary so far, but the time for choosing has arrived.

For the reasons set forth below, I believe that the primaries will come down to Mitt Romney versus Newt Gingrich.  As such, the choice is not between Newt Gingrich and some hypothetical more perfect conservative candidate, as Newt’s...

I was on the road and in meetings all day, with only passing opportunities to log on.  But I see a trend emerging.

Bloggers and websites which support Romney, explicitly in some cases, impilicitly in others, are making lists of reasons why Newt Gingrich is not conservative enough, finding anywhere from 5-10 positions he has...

Newt is as “dangerous as a wounded wolverine,” according to Dan Rather (via Charlie Spiering via Drudge):

I think what we need is a wounded wolverine, not a puppy dog or kitten, for a nominee. Expect the full force of the MSM to try to stop him. I hope he...

Poll – Romney and Newt tied up for lead

You can’t take a single poll on it’s own, but this CNN poll (data here) released at noon today does comport with the trend of Newt rising as Romney’s main challenger, and Cain feeling the effects of the negative publicity.

Update: Ed Morrissey, linking also to a PPP poll showing Newt in the lead, notes:

That’s what commenter and blogger Joan of Argghh said last night after watching the clip of Newt taking on Scott Pelley over killing enemy combatants.

So what do you say about this one?

Update:  Ann Althouse enjoyed Newt’s performance also:

He listens to the precise question asked and examines it, then works out, before our...

Here was my assessment:

End Game – no clear winner. Cain exceeded expectations but only because expectations were low.  Perry redeemed himself but I doubt it will change perceptions.  Newt and Romney were both good, Newt scored his usual slap at the moderator and it worked wonderfully.  Scott Pelley started arguing...

Newt Gingrich has made headlines and gained supporters at the debates by taking on the media moderators, challenging the assumptions in their questions, and refusing to attack others on stage.  Playing smash mouth with the MSM...

I’ve been focusing on Newt’s rise since the debates in early September, when he distinguished himself as the statesman on stage and the guy focused on the ultimate prize, defeating Obama.  While Perry and Romney squabbled, and Santorum and Bachmann tried to score points attacking Perry and Romney, Newt impressed with...

Not really surprising, a trend I have been seeing for quite some time, and boosted by his strong speech at the Iowa GOP Reagan Dinner.

Via Political Wire:

A new We Ask America poll in Iowa finds Herman Cain leading the GOP presidential field with 22%, followed by Newt Gingrich at 18%, Mitt Romney at...

It was 90 minutes of Newt showing why he is the smartest guy on any stage, and I mean that as a compliment.

Newt was in command, and had a particularly good explanation of how to respond to Democratic scare tactics on social security.  One of the best I’ve heard.  When I...
