Gingrich: The GOP can't beat Hillary in 2016

Postby rabble » Mon Dec 10, 2012 10:31 am

I have to wonder if he's trying for a little reverse psychology here.

But he does make a good point that Bill and "presumably a still relatively popular President Barack Obama" would be strong assets.

There are just way too many unknowns this far in advance of 2016 to have an informed opinion on who will win.

That said, I wonder how Hillary's re-election effort will go in 2020!

I predict that her Secretary of State, Barack Obama, will throw her under the bus.

Because he's trying to position himself for the 2016 nomination?

After all, if you've got a "political superbowl," you need a superhero. Who ya gonna call?

His star is falling but he can still do plenty of damage and he should not be discounted yet.

I definitely think he should run again. Obama stole some of his best Romney attacks from Gingrich. He can't win, but he can do a whole lot of damage to whoever else runs in the Republican primary.

But that's not the same thing as saying I think we should pay attention to anything he says in 2012.

Newt Gingrich himself would tell you not to take what Newt Gingrich says seriously.
