The Truth Behind the Attack on Newt

The latest Newt-Reagan flap has me boiling. I’ve been in the debate business a long time, and if it’s one thing I’ve learned it’s this: Tell the truth about your opponent. As much as you might believe your opponent’s position is wacko, don’t lie about it or misrepresent it. It’s not ethical, and it will come back to bite you in the end.

For the past few days establishment Republicans have been dumping on Newt for being anti-Reagan. First, it’s not wrong to be anti-Reagan. Reagan raised taxes and increased government spending. On these points, I’m anti-Reagan.

Second, what the anti-Newtonians are using to disparage Newt are just plain wrong. In fact, they are so taken out of context that to put them into their proper context would expose the establishment Republicans for the frauds they really are.

Here’s what Elliot Abrams, who served as Assistant Secretary of State for Inter-American Affairs under Reagan, wrote about what Newt allegedly said about Reagan and his policies toward the Soviet Union:

“Measured against the scale and momentum of the Soviet empire’s challenge, the Reagan administration has failed, is failing, and without a dramatic change in strategy will continue to fail. . . . President Reagan is clearly failing.”

 Here’s what Newt actually said — in context. Pay attention to the distinction between Reagan and those in his administration. It’s the key to the story:

“The fact is that George Will, Charles Krauthammer, Irving Kristol, and Jeane Kirkpatrick are right in pointing out the enormous gap between President Reagan’s strong rhetoric, which is adequate, and his administration’s weak policies, which are inadequate and will ultimately fail.”

Newt was attacking the people in Reagan’s administration who wanted Reagan to tone down the anti-Soviet rhetoric. These are the same people who wanted Reagan to remove the line “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” from his speech at the Brandenburg Gate near the Berlin Wall on June 12, 1987.

Here’s the important part of the story. Reagan administration officials wanted him to cut the line from his speech because they believed them to be an “outright affront to the Soviet leadership.” Here’s what Peter Robinson, Reagan’s speech writer, says happened:

[T]he speech was circulated to the State Department and the National Security Council. Both attempted to squelch it. The assistant secretary of state for Eastern European affairs challenged the speech by telephone. A senior member of the National Security Council staff protested the speech in memoranda. The ranking American diplomat in Berlin objected to the speech by cable. The draft was naive, it would raise false hopes. It was clumsy, it was needlessly provocative. State and the NSC submitted their own alternate drafts — my journal records that there were no fewer than seven, including one written by the diplomat in Berlin. In each, the call to tear down the wall was missing.

This was what Newt was railing against, not Reagan, but the softies in his Administration. They are still with us. They want to maintain the status quo with their guys holding the purse strings.

    There was a running joke about Reagan when he was in office.
    "Before Reagan got into office, "I had a yacht and a wife. Now I have a rowboat and a whore."

    • Ed

      Because Carter's term as president was so successful? It must have been all that record inflation that enabled all those people to have yachts.

    • jim

      With ole Socilasit Racist Class dividing, Incompetent Neighborhood Rowser barry we are lucky to EAT let alone have a boat!

      • Patriot

        Amen!

    • LibDebunker

      I'm sorry your fortunes in the old Soviet Union went so badly for you.

    • Jonathan Gartner

      Said by the marxist left. All people benefited by this administration business made more money as did individuals. The government had more money coming in by lower taxes on business. The taxes that Ronald Reagan rose was on the promise of 1 dollar in new taxes for three in reduced spending we are still waiting on that from the demoncrats. In his first 21/2 years in he reduced unemployment by three percentage points

    • American 1st

      You must be a Dummycrap! After Reagan went into office I opened my own business, employed 16 people and made a lot of money.

      Since O-brainless went into office I have spent most of the money I had made on trying to keep my business afloat & had to reduce the number of workers to 6 (reduced by appx 2/3).

      The past 2 years have been a disaster, not only for me, but for most of America. If Obozo and ANY Democrats are elected in 2012 you can kiss this country & freedom goodbye. But isn't that his plan? To bankrupt this once great nation!

      • American 1st

        PS - Don't tell Obama what comes after Trillion

        • Myrtlelinder

          Better not tell those who are allowing him to get rid of our money, by the trillion either. As far as I know he cannot do it without their help, that is I THINK. He has been getting away with some very weird things, so he might can do this. We may as well not have a Senate, a Congress, because what we have, they seem to think they have to give in to his every demand.

      • Dwight A. Knupp

        Congratulations. Right On!!!!

    • American 1st

      Hey upaces88 -

      You might want to look in the mirror. I doubt that President Reagan, the greatest President ever, had anything to do with you losing your boat, and I'm even more doubtful he had ANYTHING to do with you losing your wife, and I'm 99.9999% sure he didn't have anything to do with you getting a whore.

      Soooooooo if you want to down with a sinking ship, vote Obama again.. The rest of us are far too intelligent to make that stupid mistake. Oh, and take The Wicked Witch Of The West Pelosi with you

      GINGRICH / SANTORUM 2012.

      • upaces88

        Totally agree with you about Gingrich/Santorum or whoever he chooses to team up with him.

        It was an "insensitive joke.".

        • daz

          Conservative my eye! People are pathetic, you talk about throwing Obama out in 2012 yet many are supporting Gingrich who cosponsored the Fairness doctrine, supports Amnesty by his own words recently, believes in manmade global warming, supports cap and trade. Supported TARP bailout, defended Romneycare and the mandate. He is a big govt globalist who said in his own book that the constitution served us well but the time has come for it to be replaced. He supported The Violent Crime and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. That law placed additional restrictions on our 2nd Amendment Right to possess a firearm. By the polls so many idiots have jumped on board to our demise. You started out with the only conservative , Bachmann, then jumped ship to Perry, then Cain, now Gingrich, now Santorum! Bachmann who proved for the last few years who side she is on as she has worked tirelessly for conservative causes in Congress, you rejected! If you really want to know what Newt stands for read this, it is well documented. I dont like any of them but am starting to lean toward Paul. At least i know he will cut govt down to size and get rid of the Fed, though he's terrible on immigration.
          http://emergingcorruption.com/2011/11/newt-worthy-or-not/
          One of the main bulwarks of the Progressive Establishment is the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). For over twenty years since 1990, Newt Gingrich has been a member of the powerful Council on Foreign Relations. Since 1921 the CFR has been single mindedly dedicated to the goal of undermining our National Sovereignty in order to promote a One World Government.

        • Myrtlelinder

          Had you heard that everything that is documented, is not documented.

    • upaces88

      That was a very "insensitive joke." I Loved Reagan --wish he was still here -- just sharing an inapporpiate joke.
      Do apologize -- we are all very sensitive right now -- especially with the dirtball in the HW>

      • Patriot

        olinda, have to agree with you that focus MUST be on replacing OWEbama. Looking at something, though, one must realize, it is the liberal/left-wing MEDIA who is running the show for the debates, along with Soros. They are selecting and posing the questions and the intention is to have them go at each others' jugular. The one truly good debate was when the Heritage Foundation sponsored the debate and ISSUES were debated, not personalities. The liberal media wants us all to focus on personalities, not issues because if we focus on issues, OWEbama would LOSE in a landslide because he has continued to wreck our economy, forced OWEbamacare down our throats which throws grandma, grandpa and those with preexisting conditions under the bus (not ALL preexisting conditions will be covered, and healthcare for seniors will be rationed while decisions will be made on a feasibility chart - in other words, is this person too old to have the surgery or get the medication to cure cancer) - I read the entire bill! Anyhow, he has done nothing to improve unemployment, tried to ruin Boeing and Gibson Guitar - our unemployment is atrociously high; he has increased the debt ceiling repeatedly and plans to do so immediately. He is ruining our credit by having the Fed devalue our dollar by printing more and more, as well as planning to grant amnesty illegals, sue our own states, and choose which laws he will obey and which he won't. He refused to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation. He has refused to honor his inaugural oath of office to uphold our Constitution. He ruined drilling in the Gulf with his embargo on so doing, thus all the rigs left the Gulf. Now he's approved drilling - but the rigs have gone! Useless. Moreover, he is forcing Christians to have health care while exempting moslems and some Amish, as well as granting over 1200 waivers to his union buddies. Those who say it's the Repubs fault that OWEbama has been stymied have forgotten that the Dems had been in control of both houses of Congress since January 2007, and took control of the WH, Jan. 2009. So until Nov. 2010, they had control of the government and the Dems did NOTHING except bailouts and OWEbamacare - they did nothing to get our folks to work or improve the unemployment numbers. Cash for clunkers was a farce and cost more than it benefited, other than removing OWEbama/Biden bumper stickers. So, the liberal media who completely supports the POTUS and has NEVER vetted him as they have the Repubs, doesn't want us to focus on the horrible track record of this administration.

          D Rash, Gingrich is not a conservative. He is egotistical and pompous man whose own party couldn't wait to get rid of him and that is fact. Btw, you need to read about Gingrich and his "peddling" of a book that said the Constitution is an old relic that must be replaced with something new, to better work in Gingrich's 21 Century America ... the book called "The Third Wave."

          Gingrich wrote the forward to it and pushed it as Speaker, suggesting that everyone in Congress read it. http://thereaganwing.wordpress.com/2011/11/20/the....

          Amen, D Rash!!!

    • ardis

      Who was responsible for the Reagan administration? That's right, Reagan was responsible. Abrams never claimed Gingrich was constantly anti-Reagan. Abrams argued that Gingrich was lodging criticisms of Reagan's decisions that were often abrasive and wrong in retrospect. Gingrich DID say in 1986 concerning the Soviet Empire that Reagan's policies were, quote--"inadequate and would ultimately fail". Gingrich also said in 2008, "The era of Reagan is over" during the period when he was promoting his Big Gov't agenda with Pelosi (Cap & Trade in 2008, the Individual Mandate at the federal level from 1993 through May, 15, 2011, Obama's education programs with Al Sharpton in 2009, he endorsed partial birth abortion GOP candidate Scozzafava over a Tea Party pro-life candidate in 2009, he was influence peddling for cash Freddie Mac's GSE business model to Capitol Hill conservatives from 1999 until Sept. 2008 as that mortgage entity tanked the U.S. economy),--ditto Gingrich endorsed Obama's Iraq cut and run in 2011, trashed the GOP's Ryan Plan "right wing social engineering, and Wall Street Occupier condemned free enterprise "A small group of rich people manipulating 1000s of people, and taking all the money."

    • Bill

      How is that ex-wife doing? Does she still have the yacht?

    • RPW

      The ignorant and misleading posts of the left never ceases to amaze me. It was clearly Carter who imposed a business killing luxury tax that harmed the pleasure craft and general aviation industry and the economy overall. Unlike Obama, Regan did not spend 4 years blaming everything on his predecessor he just did what he could to fix things. IN the wake of Obam's damage we need someone even stronger then Regan. I don't know if that person exists but aparently Newt is the best chance in the race. Remember Regan was not popular and was scary to the Republican base at this very same momment in the 1980 presidential race. Regan like most presidents grew into the job (unlike Obama).

    • Pleasepassthetea

      Well, seeing as I lived in D.C. during the Carter years AND the Reagan years, I remember first-hand what it was like during both of those administrations and I can assure you upaces, your joke has it exactly backwards. The Carter years were marked by double-digit inflation which meant EVERYTHING was more expensive. No one could afford a house because interest rates were at 20% and the lines at the gas stations were so long that once I waited FOUR hours to fill up my car but when I finally got to the front of the line I wasn't allowed to fill up the tank. The gas was rationed. And that was if you could actually FIND a gas station that had gas. That's right upaces. It was a HORRIBLE time. When Reagan came into office, the economy started to boom and continued for the eight years he was in office, in spite of the fact that he had to deal with a Democrat-controlled Congress. The power of his vision, charisma and rhetoric forced the Democrat-controlled Congress to do things that they didn't really want to do. Those years were wonderful. People were proud of their country, proud to be Americans and were respected world-wide. Carter had the brilliant idea that the Shah of Iran should be deposed so that Iran could choose its own form of government. Guess what happened upaces? Just like the so-called Arab Spring in Egypt, radical muslims seized power and now we have a bellicose, dangerous, radicalized Iran which is threatening to wipe Israel off of the map. After the Shah was deposed, the new government seized several American hostages who languished in Iranian prisons for the entirety of the Carter administration. Carter made many futile attempts to release the hostages. As soon as Reagan came into office, the Iranian government agreed to release the hostages. They were afraid of Reagan. They knew that he meant business and that he would do whatever he had to do to get those hostages home. So I don't know who made up that joke, but they were VERY uninformed.

      • VoiceOfReason

        Not just several hostages, the Iranian rabble seized the American Embassy, the Charge de Affairs, all State Department people left in the country, along with a couple of unlucky USAF personnel who should have departed two days before but the Charge de Affairs would not let them leave because he didn't want the Iranians to think "that the US was abandoning them."

      • Jonathan Gartner

        If you remember a gentleman called Col. Charles Beckwith he went in to Iran for a possible rescue. Carter gave orders to remove the sand shields from the helos causing them to fail in the desert . Then forced the Col to take all the blame. Carter was just as evil as Obama people just do not remember

    • Pleasepassthetea

      A few more things to add about the Reagan era. Oil supply eased up as soon as Reagan came into office, gas prices went down and guess what? No more gas lines at the gas station. No more rationing of gas. Inflation plummeted (a good thing) and credit was suddenly affordable (I can't remember exactly but someone here probably will. It went from 20% or higher to, like 4%). People could now buy a house, businesses started up, the economy boomed, and everyone benefitted. Reagan was the greatest President of the 20th century and one of the all-time greats. He was monolithic, like Churchill or George Washington.

      Mormonism IS A "CULT".

      NO TRUE BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN SHOULD VOTE FOR Mitt Romney. Mormonism IS A DEMONIC "CULT".

      • George_S

        In my opinion, Mormonism is a bit of a "California" religion (Fruits, nuts, and flakes), but if you put aside theology, the Mormons are very good people. You could very easily say that Christianity is a cult too if you wished, but I don't think that would be very profitable since it is under Christianity that the world has been civilized. It is with a loss of the Christian faith that the world is once again becoming uncivil. The point is that spewing hatred toward a group with which you disagree is not good. Tend your own garden and let others tend theirs. Unless someone intends to sacrifice virgins in the Rose Garden should they become President, their faith is not my concern.

    • steve tanton

      ...ahh, but you folks who said this got it "backasswards". If you moved from the yacht and the wife to a rowboat and a whore, it is your own undoing. History shows that things got way better under Reagan, but it did take time. And those complaining about the tax increases under Reagan must understand that he negotiated $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases (with Tip O'Neil), but got exactly the opposite. This prompted Michael Reagan's recent comment, "My dad is still waiting for those spending cuts." Tax increases come from Congress, not the Executive. Same with cuts. Working together is always difficult when the other side is Democrats. Reagan re-learned this one the hard way. So, Mr. or Ms. "upaces88 - you are either a liberal who is obfuscating and misleading (lying) or you can't manage your own affairs... For a joke to be funny, there must be some truth to it. Now this would be real funny if it were told of the Carter or Obummer Presidency!

    • Clay

      There was a running joke on the right too because of the liberal media at the time. It went like this: If this is a terrible economy, give me more of it.

        Right you are, KKK. But they did it with Christine McDonald in MD and Joe in AK - am not saying they were the best of candidates (although Christine was right when she said to the talking head, show me where it is in the Constitution - separation of Church and State (the WORDING isn't there) and he and the media laughed at her, but she was right, but the elite, inside-the-beltway folks didn't like them. That's why the Senators only gave both candidates the MINIMUM amount allowed by their regulations and would NOT speak up for them. That is also why the Senators warned the two candidates that they (the Senators) had pointy elbows! Is that a threat? Both Krauthammer and Rove came out immediately when Christine had beaten the liberal Repub and said that she's not electable. Why do you think they're allowing the redistricting of FL with the possible elimination of Allen West's seat? Same reason - they can't control him. They want the status quo to stay which is why they are coming out dirty against Newt and for Romney. I sure hope the folks in FL wake up and realize the elitists want Romney because he will let it be the SOP as it has been.

    • KKK

      If you are a TRUE BORN AGAIN Christian. Do not vote for Mitt Romney. He is NOT a Christian. He is a Mormon. Mormons are not Christian. Mormonism is a "CULT".

He's a white Jesse Jackson.

      President Carter was a fake. When the cameras were on him and he was either going or returning from a trip, he would carry his own bags showing the press that he was a man of the people. The problem was was that those bags were empty. When the press wasn't around taking pictures, he'd let the Secret Service guys carry his real bags.

    • Mike

      Carter inept? He took inept to a new level. We endured 4 years of ineptness and then promptly voted him out of office. We had 4 years of economic malaise, double digit interest rates, energy crisis, high taxes, business in the doldrums and our military was demoralized and ill equipped. It took Ronny a while to pull the country out of it, but he did it and America grew and got a lot stronger in every way.

  • http://godfatherpolitics.com everett

    If American and Republican voters want to lose this election to the Obamacommies 2012, keep focusing on President Reagan. As admirable as President Reagan was, he is history and we cannot win an election by focing on the past. Many American voters ages 18-42 are not even aware of who Ronald Reagan was and if we want to win an election 2012, the GOP, the candidates [ultimately nominee], the Tea Party, the conservatives, and the talking heads on radio and TV who nobody should listen to anyway, all should be crafting plans, policy and rhetoric to reach voters age 18-80. This dwelling on the past is a pathetic attempt to identify with a great president...forget about it and identify with our current issues and speak to our time.

    • just sayin

      Those same issues are issues of our time. Do you post this same line everywhere?

    • David USAF

      We need to look at history. We should always look at history and learn from it. The only reason the younger voters don't know about Reagan is because the liberal schools won't teach about Reagan. The reason they don't know about Hitler is because the liberals don't want it taught. If the schools taught the truth about Reagan, Hitler, Stalin, socialism, and the Contitution, we wouldn't have the president we have today. If people would remember history and learn about history, they would know that socialism doesn't and has never worked.

      Learn our history. Remember our history. Teach our history.

    • Jonathan Gartner

      You are absolutely wrong. We must go back to the ideals that Ronald Reagan held high not only those of Conservativeism but those of moral and ethics that go with it. As far as I am concerned you need to go back to the Huffington Post and their ilk. If we neglect the past as you wish we can not draw on what our future should have in it.

    • JoJo

      I have to agree with you. As much as I liked Reagan, I really get sick of the GOP bringing up his name every five seconds. If people want to drudge up a great, overlooked president of the past, try Calvin Coolidge. I'm sure NO ONE know who he is...LOL

Never saw so many would-be's, look-alikes, spell-alikes, etc. The ones who succeeded (as in all things) are the ones who make their own way, not becoming cheap copies of ones before.

    • Wordwitness

      Perhaps, Everett...however, those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.. We do have a history, you know. I completely agree that backbiting and schoolyard bickering will hurt any candidate who engages in it. But we can not and should not pretend that anything before the decade of the 80's is irrelevant. That is also naive and largely what has gotten us into the mess we are in. We do not know our history, and a history some would like to ascribe to us seems to be told without the facts included. I agree with you in this. We should all be demanding of these candidates...WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO TO LEAD US TO FIX OUR PROBLEMS? WHAT SOLUTIONS ARE YOU BRINGING TO THE TABLE? WHAT ARE YOU PREPARED TO DO TO STRENGTHEN AND NOT COMPROMISE AMERICA? In my opinion, I believe these are the questions everyone should be asking....and they should be asked of our current President, who in my opinion, scores a big fat 0 on his performance as an American leader. Once again, without vetting, you get what you deserve if you do not know the patterns of a person, their history, and their positions.

    • robert

      Funny but I dont seem to remember all that much that was great about Reagan,,,I do however remember the IRAN/CONTRA scandal where a bunch of crooks ran various schemes out of the basement of the White House to rip off Conservative contributors for scads of cash that basically disappearred and that ten milllion from the Sultan of Brunai that they tried to hide in a Swiss bank account... And Robert McFarlane flying into Iran with a load of TOW missiles as a bribe???? These things alone disqualify Reagan as a Great president. He was very out-of-touch with what members of his administration were doing.....dangerously so. Authorizing Tow missiles to Iran was his biggest blunder. You are right Ev,,,it is time to move on from thirty year old history.

      Mitt Romney IS NOT A CHRISTIAN. Is one thing for him running for President and is another thing for him to say that he is a Christian.

      ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE. Mitt Romney IS A LIER PERIOD.

      WE as TRUE BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS KNOW THAT Mormons ARE NOT CHRISTIANS.

    • Bob H

      Thursday night I watch as this liberal net work called CNN take and attack Newt Gingrich, with Wolf calling the shots he made sure the four men on stage were fighting with each other, Lady's and Gent's we should not let this happen for we are playing into the Democrats hand, I like a lot of people said what the hell is this, we turn to watch a debate and to tell the truth I never even watch CNN until they had these debates, this Socialist run network had this set up to make the front runner Newt look ugly, and was force to go on the attack on Romney. Are country is in trouble we have a man in the oval office who is a Marxist who want's to run are nation into the ground. So what are we talking about stuff that happen long time ago, not about Obama. First thing that should have come out of Wolf's script how would you fix are high unenployment this out of control dept and would you have voted for the keystone pipe line. I ask why Republican Party why let this CNN trap you into coming on their network anyway?

    • Richard Peaslee

      Mr.Everett-its ok to mention President Reagan in a short form he was a great President. There is no way we should even think about voting for other then a Republican , because obama must go or we lose all our rights, the idiot doesn't honor our constitution or our flag or us. We must take a good look at the establishment / leaders on each side, the ones that have been in Government forever are the ones to let go.They are the ones holding everything back, the love of money and power corrupts people,they listen to the to the lobbyist instead of us the American people. The comment that polosi made last week about Newt upset me... ' Newt will never be President,i know something" that remark coming from her a communist is what will make us vote for Newt.

    • Fedup in CT

      Everett is absolutely right! It just occurred to me a few hours ago that if BO reaches out to all those young college students who couldn't vote during the last presidential election, they could make up for all the past voters who aren't as inspired as they were last time. They could make the difference. Therefore, we do need to speak about things that don't make our candidates look like dinosaurs. I think the best thing the GOP can do is it keep running commercials that show BO campaigning in 2008 and then how he wasn't "transparent", but divisive and playing politics- giving jobs, taxpayer $, fighting for the Olympics when one of his closest advisors is the slumlord in Chicago where the Olympic Village would have gone, etc., etc. How about all the vacations and golf instead of producing jobs!! Most people aren't watching debates but they will have to watch some commercials. I think the right commercials can make a big difference.

    • infidel4life

      As much as I hate to admit it, you're right. This election is all but for the repubs to give away.

      I think actually if the American and Republican voters, especially the candiadtes want another 4 years of O'Bama, keep fighting among one another about the other's character. If not, please get on point and discuss the failings of O'Bama and how they're going to correct those errors. I'm getting real tired of the mud slinging!

    • Betsy

      What about those over 80, say 96?

  • Myrtlelinder

    Who are these Republicans? Are they Rinos or real Republican Conservatives? I need to know that before I pay any attention to the dirt against Newt. There one thing about an election that is educational, it tells us who the real muddy, mud slingers are!! I hate unnecessary information which I term misinformation, because that is generally what it is, lies.

    • Dave

      Nancy Reagan stood up for Newt - I know Ms. Reagan - had lunch with her twice when she was the First lady of Calif. - she was loyal to her husband and wouldn't stick up for anyone who wasn't!

      • brassia

        I consider them losers(like Dole and G. Bush the first0 and Christie the RINO Governor....

      • Robert

        M. Coleman, you have hit a home run there. The people trying to destroy Newt are RINOs who are losers. When Romney runs an NBC TV ad in Florida that was wrong when it aired in the late 90s and Romney knows this, but still runs it, then how can anyone have any respect for Romney and the RINOs backing him? The ad never corrects the fact that Newt was cleared of all ethics charges, but the ethics committee still charged him $300,000 to offset their expenses of trying to destroy him. That is why I could never vote for Romney. He is not creditable and is nothing but a liberal at everything. Just look at Romeny's explanation of RomneyCare. It is the same as ObamaCare but Mitt is disingenuous and refuses to admit ObamaCare is fashioned after RomneyCare. Also, we must not let the Democrats and the main stream media pick our candidate as they did in 2008. They want Romney because, regardless of what they and the media are saying he is the easier candidate to beat this year. Further, take a look at the people backing Romney, such as: Bob Dole, Mel Martinez, Charlie Crist, John McCain, Charles Kraftmeyer, Bill O'Rielly, Chris Christie, George H.S. Bush, Karl Rove, and more more Republicans In Name Only (RINO); they want big government to continue.

    • ffran5308

      You just made an astute observation about quips put out there by friends and foes alike! All they manage to do is sully the waters and dilute the real issues...I will tell you that some of the so called established republicans have long memories dating back to the 90's and they can not forgive Gingrich working with Clinton in Congress to get some issues passed. Hence, they see him as a traitor .. But as I see the party now, they are so inept along with their cohorts they are not willing to compromise on anything. Hence, GRIDLOCK with a 5% approval rating .They are so interested in what is important to the party they have lost sight as to what is right for the country! I can't believe John McCann and Dole coming out for Rommey when we know there is a history on both men toward Newt! Just remember, each and everyone of these people have an ax to grind . I no longer look to the Republican Party as my party of choice and have become an independent ! If you want to separate the wheat from the chaff go up on line and look at the Congressional Record on Newt! Please don't take the word of sunshine patriots or friends who put their own spin on what was said or conventiently have faulty memories!

      • brassia

        You are wrong about compromising. First of all it is republicans that always HAVE to compromise and expected to do so otherwise they will be eaten alive by media and democrats spewing lies and hatred, now the establishments is doing it to one of their own. Second- the teary eye Boehner gave Obama the right to increase the debt ceiling anytime he wants....
        Name one republican speaker of the house after Gingrich worthy of respect-none!

        • Robert

          brassia, I like your style. I am against Republicans compromising with Democrats on anything. We should take the stance, that if Democrats are for it, then we need to oppose it. Nothing Democrats want is good for the country because they are only interested in power (which means them getting re-elected). They will go to any length to get it or keep it. Why does Obama continually say the Congress (meaning the House) is the problem when we all know it is the Senate that obstructs anything the House passes? We must vote Republicans back in control of the House and Senate this November in order to stop Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi from regaining their power which is really corrupt. Further, OMG (Obama must go) should be our rallying cry.

      • Chief 4

        Everyone keeps saying that the House is the problem and the obstructionist........but a blind man can see that it is the unicorn boy (reid)/leader of the senate. I'm a die hard Republican but I do think there is times we have to compromise for the good of the country. However, I think the republicans are the ones who always are expected to give in. The big difference I see with it all is, the moment the dems and obummer don't get there way, they go crying to the left swinging media and the blame game begins!! We should all think forward to November and get this country back on track.....with Newt at the head of it all!!!!

    • Crabman 360

      On the money brother! The "old boy network" is no different from the liberal democrats.

    • budman

      Myrtlelinder: When the facts are checked against what is put out, you will find almost all allegations have been rejected as untruthful and this is what bothers me about the establishment and their desire to not have a Conservative as the nominee.
      Their fear, in my thinking, is a Conservative cannot win. I think they are wrong in the case of Gingrich because he is wise enough to keep the issues centrist and necessary to win over the Independent vote. Most Presidents have had to move to the center to get anything done in Congress and Gingrich has been there, done that and knows how to negotiate but is also why the establishment doesn't like him. There are many Independents in the Tea Party who already back Gingrich.
      I like Governor Romney but I have to say that what he is doing and then denying he had anything to do with the mud slinging has given me pause about him. The author of this article has said what may happen and that it will come back and bite him since the allegations about Gingrich have been proven false or very misleading in scope.
      I also think the Democrats are throwing out the impression they would rather see Gingrich win than Romney because the polls show Romney in the lead. They know that Obama would be clobbered in a debate with Gingrich as he has far more experience on the issues than Romney.

      • Myrtlelinder

        Thanks, Budman. I find what you say is true and I take, with a grain of salt, anything I hear from the liberals, who do not bother with the truth, it seems they are allergic to it. They will say anything to get the results they want.

        • Chief 4

          Look at pelosi.....twice she has said she has something on Newt and twice her office is back peddling!! It really shows her true character!! I do believe there is a village somewhere missing their village idiots.....one in California and one in Nevada!!!!

        • Myrtlelinder

          They are scared of Newt and rightly so. He is the man,or so they think, most likely to put their king out of business.

        • Robert

          Myrtlelinder, your last sentence reminds me of what I learned from my study of polling in college many moons ago. Perhaps that is why Democrats like polling so much; it is easy to manipulate. Remember Bill Clinton never made a decision unless he had a poll result first.

        • Patriot

          Robert, what you posted reminded me of what a college professor said in statistical psychology: statistics can be twisted to prove ANYTHING! If you have three dentists and ask them if they like toothpaste A or B - two will probably vote for one of them. So you say, two-thirds of dentists surveyed preferred A. Spin is the name of the game.

      • brassia

        Absolutely!
        The democrats pretend that Gingrich is beatable, they are playing the political maneuvering...
        Romney is in it for himself only- multimillionaire- all he wants now is power Just like Bloomberg in NYC ..
        He is being overcautious with one eye on the media and another on independent, he even adapted the OWS phrase -we are 99%...if anything would raise a red flag-it is his support of the movement that started by Soros and current administration...in addition to the admission by Norm Coleman that Romney will NOT REPEAL Obamacare....

        • Robert

          brassia, I love you. You think just like I do. You must be a true conservative; not a RINO like Romney. It is too bad that Norm Coleman was done in by ACORN in Minnesota in 2008. I still would like to know where the votes came from that was mysteriously found in the trunk of that auto days after the election and further, why were they allowed to be counted? With so many factions against Republicans, it is amazing that any ever get elected. Voter fraud seems to be the Democrat guiding rule of conduct. Oh yea, since George Soros would be happy with Romney or Obama as President, then that should be enough to vote against both and put our eggs in the basket for Newt.

        • Patriot

          Right you are, Robert and brassia, and all ACORN has done is to rechristen itself, and is STILL receiving government funding. It is also in OWEbamacare as a visiting agency to assure seniors have an end-of-life plan. Oh yes. I've read the entire horrible law. It MUST be repealed. Am sure that come Nov., if nothing serious happens between now and then and Martial law isn't enacted, we'll see lots of Black Panthers at voting polls.

    • Chief 4

      What gets me is Newt started the run for president without slinging mud.......but the machine started on him first and then he fired back. Then everyone in the world (at least it seemed like it) started saying how bad Newt was slinging mud at the others....mostly Romney. I think they all should step aside and let the candidates be so the American people can select the one person they really believe in. We can't let the press or the republican group make the selection for us!!!!

      • Myrtlelinder

        Right, instead of telling what they believe, can do and will do for the country, they begin to tear every body else apart. Instead of running on their own merits run on the others demerits and on lies.

      • Robert

        Chief 4, yes we need election reform. Perhaps it should begin with only 3 months of advertising on any media and then everyone goes to the polls and votes for their choice. This 4 years of electioneering is getting old.

        • Patriot

          We also need to to stop the PACS. The SCOTUS made an error in their ruling which allows a group to post ads as if they were people which means as if they are supporters of someone, when in actuality they are out to destroy that candidate.

          As to Newt - I went to see him at his rally in Sarasota. He was great! We were in a hangar and were packed almost like sardines. Folks were spilling over to the parking lot. The media reported that half the hangar was filled; there were about a 1000 - BALONEY! There were thousands!! Traffic was stopped on Tamiami Trail (41) for at least half an hour to 45 minutes just to empty the parking lots and I75 was jammed, as well.

          The media wants us to believe Romney is ahead and that women are leaving Newt because of what his former wife Marianne said. The polls are doing the same. I for one, went against what the polls said, and voted for my choice! I'd love to see Newt wipe the floor with OWEbama in a debate!

    • rebecca brigandi

      Of course they are Rinos. Romney is one of them and his campaign is behind all of the lies and dirt being flung against Newt. Newt was endorsed by Ronald Reagan's son, Tod Palin, Rudy Giulliani, Fred Thompson, Allen West, Herman Cain, the assn. of Miami Hispanic politician, Marco Rubio, and other strong conservatives. Nancy Reagan, in a speech in 1995, handed the "conservative" torch from Ronald Reagan to Newt. If you listen to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill Cunningham, or Mark Levin, you will hear them relentlessly try to defend Newt's record against all of the false attacks., day in and day out. Mark Levin worked closely with Pres. Reagan and he said Newt was as conservative as you get. Does that answer your question?

      • Myrtlelinder

        Indeed!!! Thanks!

  • Robert, TX

    All roads lead to the same outcome: 1) Obama re-election means bigger government, more spending, more debt and less liberty.
    2) Romney election means bigger government, more spending, more debt and less liberty. 3) Newt election means he'll claim to cancel one or two programs, while ramping up other programs which means bigger government, more spending, more debt and less liberty. The only positive outcome comes from after we FIRE CONGRESS and slash spending regardless of which hand-picked, Goldman Sachs straight-jacket wearing liberal wins the Presidency.

    • mesaman

      Robert, you've been inhaling the conservative horse poop too long, you don't have a solution, just a major gripe; makes you sound more like a democrap than a conservative. What we want is someone who can remove Oh-bama from his office and return him to the Chicago ghettos, where he belongs. Focus on getting a Republican elected, not on your Tea Party bumpkins.

      • Robert, TX

        FIRING CONGRESS is a solution. Simply putting a white guy in office to hand people their government checks is NOT a solution (though it would make most of the double-dippers happy).

        • Flame

          Then get him to pair up with Allen West as VP. West understands the whole war issue.

          Also, his presence on the ticket neutralizes the race card that Obummer is certain to play at some point.

    • patriot

      Agreed! Congress has always been the intended mechanism to keep the executive branch in check. If the President is the "CEO" of America, then the congress is the board of directors. The board of directors is appointed by you!

    • M. Coleman

      Not all of them are bad. The new conservatives that were elected, and a few of the ones that were already there are fighting to do the right thing. But when you have a Democrat controlled Senate, and of course Obama, they are fighting a loosing battle. There has not been a budget passed on time, since Obama was elected, and he had complete support the first two years, with the Dems in control of Congress. You cannot blame everyone, when you have those in Congress, and Obama, who want to expand government, spend money we do not have, and want to raise taxes. Get rid of the liberals. All have to do is look at the voting records, and see who is guilty. True conservatives, as a rule want to cut spending, keep taxes lower, and reduce the size of government. Liberals want to expand government, raise taxes, and spend money that we do not have. And sometimes, just because they have a R beside their name does not mean they are conservative. That is why you look at their voting record in Congress.

      • brassia

        There is very few conservatives ...I blame the establishment for the problems in our country even more than ...democrats..

        Ha, they are both liars and wolves in sheeps clothing. Either would be a detriment to this nation. Even weak kneed Santorum is better than they are.We either elect Ron Paul, or this nation will finally go over the cliff like Greece, and there won't be anyone who could bail us out then. With Paul, we would survive and thrive, but the neo-cons just can't stand the thought of us giving up our glorius empire.

    • Gabriel

      The only one who will reduce government fraud, waist and size is Ron Paul. There are too many on these boards who are quick to say negative things about Paul, yet they are too lazy to go and see what he has to say. He isn't an isolationist. He believes in open dollar for dollar trade, he backs a strong military DEFENCE. He would aid any ally who would ask for it, as long as congress approves, which they most likely will. He will protect our southern borders, create a stronger well defined military, not one that's spread so thin, that foreign troops could easily land in our own nation. He would shrink the government, cut total spending to match our income, slowly eliminate the debt and best of all, return liberty and power to the people.
      Vote for the Constitution, vote Ron Paul 2012 !!!

  • vigilannie

    The truth is - NEWT is NO conservative! Neither is Romney! THEY ARE BOTH OUT OF THE SAME MOLD....RINO's....the most conservative of the bunch is Ron Paul (and this is from a dedicated republican voter for over 30 years!)

    • tirmite

      You're confusing Conservatism with Extreme LIberslism. Paul borders on being a nut or a far Right extremist. Check out the writings of his close friend and collaborator Lew Rockwell. Now square that with Conservative ideas. Paul followers are mostly rabid cult members who resemble anarchists more than Republicans.

    • just sayin

      If Ron Paul is honest, then he is incompetent as a manager in my opinion. Here is the fact. Please don’t blather on about NWO, Neo Cons and the like. Just make your determination which one he is and then temper your future comments using common sense rather than Mantra! His views that were written about in HIS newsletters for years with HIS name on them are scary. He claims that he did not know what they were writing for years. To me, that sounds like irresponsible management AT MINIMUM. How can someone who cannot even supervise his OWN newsletters manage international affairs and the US government. So IF he is honest, he is irresponsible and incompetent AT THE LEAST. My belief is that he DID know what was in his newsletters for YEARS and did supervise what went in there. THAT would make him patently dishonest by claiming that he did not know. What would the average person think if they were not a PaulBot or a cult member? My guess would be the latter but the former is possible. Which do you believe, since you claim he is the ONLY honest one? Is he irresponsible and incompetent or dishonest?

      • JoJo

        Why should people that favor Ron Paul have to "temper their comments"...because YOU say so? Holy crap, I thought that we were all trying to regain the rights that we have lost. Your comments to stifle someone's opinion is EXACTLY what the liberal lemmings do.

      • Flame

        Considering how the Obum camp has gone out of its way to destroy each candidate in turn---just as he did in his first campaign for Illinois legislature and later dragged out Jeri Ryan to destroy her husband's campaign when Obum was running for US Senate, then all that has been dredged up about Herman Cain and last week, Marianne Gingrich---I tend to to believe Ron Paul's assertions that he did not know what was published under his name. I've been getting Dr. Paul's Texas Straight Talk for years and never found anything remotely racist. Destroying opposition is what Obum does---and he doesn't care how he does it. I've met Ron Paul, and I do not get the kind of negative vibes that many of these comments put out. I trust Dr. Paul; I trust Obum about as far as I can toss the Washington Monument.

      • Gabriel

        Ron Paul made one mistake 20 years ago. Is that all you have??? Look at the other candidates records, for crying out loud. Paul is a saint compared to them, especially Newt. If Newt, or Mitt get the Republican nomination, i'll write Paul in. Santorum, I might be willing to give a chance against Obama. People have it wrong, it's not about getting Obama out at all costs. Newt and Mitt are more of the same, period. This election is about saving this country from collapse, and only Paul seems to have an idea on how to do it, and he's dead on right. Wake up people, your country is truly at stake here.

      Me too, vigilannie. Though, technically, I only voted repub for 28 years. Their complete lack of results, along with their ineptitude, not to mention that our government exploded during that 28 year period - while they sang their "making government smaller" song during every election cycle. I am proud to say that I told everyone (before the election) that little johnny and mealy-mouth mitch would not do squat after the 2010 "landslide victory" that Rush and Fox proclaimed. Some victory. They have done NOTHING to stop Obama or the elitists that prop Obama up. We scrutinize 23 year old NFL quarterbacks more thoroughly than the republican politicians, who have no completions, no yards, and no wins - just fumbles, interceptions, sacks and lies.

      • AlleyOops75

        Not quite fair...The senate is controlled by the dems as is the executive branch...Harry Reid hasn't allowed a single GOP house sponsored bill come to a vote...The GOP establishment is about to give us four more years of Obama...the same GOP establishment that gave John McPain, er, ah McCain the nomination in 2008...The democrats will rip Willard Romney and his Swiss & Cayman Island bank accounts to shred in the upcoming election.

        I agree with you, Sherlock. I listened to Santorum in Punta Gorda, Fl this week. His views are right on. Why do Newt and Mit get all the time during the debates, which are not really a debate. We need to stop the mud slinging and talk straight about the issues.

          Here is only one clip of Santorum. I have LOTS more!
          http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread793960/...

          Rick said:

          “One of the criticisms I make is to what I refer to as more of a Libertarianish right.

          They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues. {ARE YOU KIDDING ME???}

          That is not how traditional conservatives view the world. There is no such society that I’m aware of, where we’ve had radical individualism and that it succeeds as a culture.”

          Hear Rick's own words from the video in the above link. This idiotic comment alone should get Santorum bounced. Rick is diametrically opposed to Ron Paul's return to the Constitution freedom & liberty message.

        • Flame

          Santorum's voting record in the Senate is hardly conservative. He's just another RINO.

        • Ray

          You gotta be a democrat trying hide behind your rhetorical camoflauge.

    • Jonathan Gartner

      Paul had denied being either a Republican or a Conservative. He is a Libertarian which in many issues is to the left of Obama for example drugs and foreign policy.

    • Wordwitness

      Call RP a nut job, but he is not. He is the most consistent candidate on the horizon. I happen to agree with him on most everything. IE: We are no friend to Israel if we give her the equivalent of one dollar and give her enemies the equivalent of 4? And then demand of her to follow our criteria of behavior and response. How about we get our nose out of her business...and the rest of the world as well? If we are her friend, and she needs defending, then we should defend her. We should not boss her around. She's a big girl and capable of making her own sovereign decisions. Who, after all, do we think we are? The bribery police of the world? We should mind our own business, and look after our own sovereignty and the welfare of our citizens. It should only be our business if Israel wants to make it our business.

      • WordWitness

        The egocentricity of America is staggering. Looking after our people and securing our borders does not make us weaker...it strengthens us.

        • WordWitness

          Please at least go look at the Ron Paul positions if you are about America. Think about it with a critical thinking process. We delude ourselves to thinking we need to meddle in the world while our own house burns to the ground. We need huge changes or we will have no house.

        • Ray

          Ron Pauls positions with the exception of his attitude toward the Fed Reserve and the tax code, are no different than Obama.

    • M. Coleman

      I have no problem with Ron Paul on his economic policies. But his foreign policies scare the hell out of me. There are too many people in the world that hate America, and everything she stands for. You cannot just stick your head in the sand, and think if you leave everybody alone, you will be left alone. I do not like wars either. But sometimes you have to go kill the bad guys. But as long as we have to buy oil from these crazy people, we will have to do what is necessary. Not that I agree with everything we have done in the middle east. If we became more energy independent, and the federal government would allow more drilling here, ease up on regulations. So we can drill offshore, and on our land, plus continue to look and invest in other energy, besides petroleum, in the private sector, mainly. Until then we have to be involved.

      • Flame

        Then we need to elect someone who can stand up to the Envirowackos who have prevented us from drilling. (BTW, the environmental push is a page straight out of the Commie Manifesto.) Got a replay just yesterday of a fabulous presentation of just how very small a part of ANWR a drilling operation would take, and almost on the seacoast at that. It would not destroy the beautiful valleys and mountains of the reserve. The drill site would be a postage stamp compared to the rest of Alaska and, okay, a pillowcase compared to the vastness of the whole ANWR.

        Better yet, educate yourselves about clean safe nuclear tech. We have 104 plants now---all built to technology that is a half-century old. Does any talking head ever mention WHAT KIND of nuclear reactor just failed or is about to be built? No, they don't! But all our present (and planned) plants are in the Light Water Reactor class, as was the Japanese plant that failed last year. BTW, that plant was Japan's oldest and already scheduled to be decommissioned. Nature just hurried up the plan. Research Integral Fast Reactors (like Monju, Japan). In IFR tech, 1) the fuel is not attractive to terrorists, 2) the plants shut themselves down in case of accident, 3) water is not the coolant, so there's no steam build-up to crack the containment vessels, 4) we get FIFTY TIMES more energy per ton of fuel, and 5) the final waste to be stored is about 1/40th in bulk and only needs to sit 300-500 years, not 10,000. But do you ever hear that from the lamestream media? Hell no!

        We could be independent of ME oil in one term if we could get Congress to be serious about energy!

        • C.Davis

          We are independent of ME oil. Look it up. the slimebag bankers and their counterfeit .American dollar system is deeply dependant on it so, as their slave military we are ordered to go and invade their client states when they start to get uppity. Once they're bombed back to the stone age, we can back out, because they are once again too impoverished to survive without being subservient to their infernal "benefactors".
          Our founders would have been ashamed of anyone claiming to be "scared" of a responsibile foreign policy as they chartered and as is espoused by Dr. Ron Paul.
          Every time I see an automaton parroting his favorite co-opted talking head's pronouncement of being "scared," I want to vomit with the idea of what they have degenerated the "home of the brave" into.
          HEY NUMBNUTS! How about being scared of your creator who has commanded you not to steal. And kill. And covet, etc., etc. Because all you who claim that Ron's policy of non interventionism is somehow "scary" are advocating the willful violation of all ten of the commandments that God gave to the children of Isaac, including the one about honoring your parents, because you heap ignonomy upon the heads of all those for whom you are responsible. If you think God's judgement is something that is just a nice story in the bible, then your judgement be upon you.

        • Ray

      Paul is a libertarian...not a conservative, there really is a difference...

    • Joe

      You are so correct. Newt, Mitt and Santorum for that matter, are part of the status quo. The GOP big government establishment would rather have Obama re-elected, than Ron Paul. Ron Paul is fighting for the people and Constitution. That is why the statists, both Democrat and Republican, are doing everything possible to stop Ron Paul's message of returning to sound money and a limited Constitutional government. If the average American understood how they have been enslaved and fleeced by the establishment for several generations, there would be blood in the streets.

    • Tigerfred1

      Paul's drug policy is liberal. His isolationist passive foreign policy in dealing with our enemies is liberal. His acceptance of immoral behavior under the guise of personal liberty is liberal. Make no mistake about it, he wants to move the needle too far in everything he wants, which is not conservative. In some ways, he is more liberal than Obama.

    • DrCrimwitt

      You have no idea what you are talking about...Ron Paul is not a Conservative. He is a Libertarian. Libertarian's, although conservative in some respect, are liberal in others. For example...legalize drug use. Newt and Santroum are the most conservative but Newt has the best and most bold ideas and know has to deal with the congress and senate.

    • Robert

      vigilannie, Ron Paul is a whacko. He wants us to withdraw within our borders and not communicate or worry about anything happening in the remainder of the world. We can not do this because of the nuclear age. Please explain exactly why you want him elected president; and tell the truth. Is it because he wants to legalize drugs? Tell the truth now. As Michael Savage says, marijuana is, I repeat is, a gateway to harder drugs. He should know as he has studied the subject and has a PHD in nutritional ethnomedicine from UC Berkley.

      • Paulbot von Paulbot

        Robert, rather than relying on Michael Savage for your opinions you should do some research. Dr. Paul is not isolationist. That is an outright lie. He is not for legalizing drugs. That too is an outright lie. And yes, Michael Savage is a liar, as is Gingrich and Romney.

    • http://www.righthook38.com righthook38

      I would trust Gingrich over Romney in a heartbeat. Have you ever thought about why so many in Congress are complaining about Newt? Maybe it's because THEY are the RINO's, and they know Newt will shake things up if he makes it to the WH. We need someone who isn't concerned about making friends, but is concerned with real solutions and making the difficult decisions necessary to keep this country from going off a cliff.

      • pete0097

        Newt paid the $300K to pay for the investigation of himself, the congressional record states this. I kind of admire a man that can keep his mistress a secret from his wife. Although it does not show integrity, it does show that he is extremely organized and understands people. I could never do it. I agree with the rest of your statements. The problem is that good people with no skeletons in their closet don't want to be president because they would still have to go through with the media gauntlet and stories would be made up that he/she would have no defense of.

  • PattyFromTexas

    All this criticism of Speaker Gingrich is well deserved. He damaged the republican party during his tenure as speaker to the point where he was driven out of office. His prosecuting President Clinton for adultery whilst he himself was involved in his own adulterous relationship, his shutdown of the government his obviously inflated ego, and his snotty remarks during the last few debates are all indications of his character. YES character counts, integrity counts, honesty counts. Gingrich is a serial hypocrite, a liar, and a cheat. No way this morally bankrupt chickenhawk will ever be president.

    • Texas Pat

      Newt can stand and deliver; he is educated and articulate. I am proud of Newt for standing up to the liberal media who misrepresent the truth at every level. Newt is not a hypocrite; he is a human being. I've certainly don't things that I new better than to do. He has repented, and is forgiven. He knows and defends our Constitution and can turn America around. That is a must. If you don't like Newt, would you prefer Obama? Think carefully because that is your choice.

      • patriotrenegade

        knewtieCFR is a disciple of toffler and his "book" the third wave which calls for erasing our Constitution, which is a goal of the globalists. He is one. DO YOU KNOW THAT?!

    • Jonathan Gartner

      Actually he left on his own choice another half truth. He did a great deal for the Party that the establishment in the Party is now forgetting all that he did. His postition was far different than that of President also another half truth of the liberal / marxist left. He was the person that was attacked first by Romney not the other way round Reagan would not blame him for self defense. Obviously you have not read anything for your self investigate Romney you will find him in violation of the Mormon church on both abortion and homsexuality. Paul is a wing nut and his constitution is devoid of the morals and ethics that the founding fathers gave us along with the document. Santorum is a little to comfortable with the Unions.

    • guest

      This idea that Gingrich was forced out of office is pure nonsense. Anyone who perpetuates that drivel cares little for the facts and only seeks to disparage Gingrich. I lived during that time and followed the events carefully. It appeared after the findings and the censure that Gingrich would not be elected back to the Speaker's position therefore he elected not to run from his district again. Who knows whether he would have been elected to another term from his Georgia district. It was all about leadership in the House. Incidently, the IRS cleared Gingrich of the charge that had him censured. It was legal and not unethical to take money for teaching the college class. Facts are stubborn things for people who deal in propaganda.

      • patriotrenegade

        he's a CFR TRAITOR, got us NAFTA, GATT(china) supports the dream act amnesty, the treasonous NAU, global warming, and erasing the Constitution a la toffler. I hope you are a campaign operative, at least I know you nest of snakes is reading the truth. knewtie boy knows, ASK HIM!

    • http://libertyphysics.wordpress.com LibertyPhysics

      Your comments come directly from the Leftist playbook. In particular, President Clinton was not prosecuted for adultery. He was impeached for lying under oath in a sexual harassment case where he used his formidable power as a governor and then President to receive sexual favors from subordinates.

      How can the Speaker of the House shut down the government? He can't. This government shutdown crap is used over and over by a Democrat pandering news media. When the President is a Democrat, it'sthe Republican Congress that's shutting down the government. If the President is a Republican, he's the one shutting down the government. They, and you, are so transparent.

    • NRW

      Pay attention, Newt was completely vindicated on all charges.
      "...ultimately the IRS ruled that the former Georgia congressman did not violate any tax laws, as Democrats initially claimed. The original complaints were indeed partisan, and overreaching, and an attempt to even the score for Gingrich’s role in the humiliation of former Democratic Speaker Jim Wright."

    • Frank

      Of course he damages them. He forced them to have to show up to work and do some work. What a thought, Congress having to do any kind of work that actually benefits this country. Notice how badly the Republican Congress got voted out after they fired him as Speaker? Or does 2007 not ring any bells for you?

    • El Guapo Viejo

      The impeachment proceedings against Clinton were not for adultery. Clinton lied about it under oath, i.e., he committed perjury.
      I think Newt's sin was that he balanced the budget, leaving little extra money to buy votes with. He was brought up on ethics charges, none of which stuck but they made him pay for the proceedings. As for the shutting down of the government, life went on without it. Shows how much of the government we actually need. Go Newt!

    • KAJ

      Like him or not at least he has the ______ to stand up to the media. I don't think we would do good with Romney or Gingrich.

      See, you're repeating & believing Liberal lies. Dems are scared to death of Newt because he will prove what a dummy Obozo really is and what a fake!

    • MarcJeric

      Well - perhaps some of that is true,what Patty says. On the other hand, Gingrich stuffed down the throat of that disbarred felon Clinton 4 balanced budgets and forced on him the welfare reform. "The age of big government is over!" - you remember. However it is true that Gingrich would give that marxist Muslim from Kenya another 4 years in which to finish killing this republic.

      • Crabman 360

        I think if you want to roll over and not get behind him that you're probably right. Newt is the most feared for the Obuma team because he's the most intellectual, no doubt about it. Show some courage and stand up for the truth!

      • awakenow

        Actually, no, Gingrich did not stuff "four" balanced budgets down anyone's. throat. Gingrich was Speaker when "two" budgets were balance but he was out of office after the last two balanced budgets occurred.
        http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statement....

        But, you are correct that Gingrich will keep Obombya occupying our White House. Hopefully, Obombya's ineligibility will finally lead to his removal from it.

    • Gene

      Patty are you without sin to cast the first stone? Gene

    • Crabman 360

      Patty, to be honest, those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. He has the best working experience to get the job done and a record to prove it. He has admitted to many mistakes and claiming a rebirth in faith. Romney is visciously filthy and will do whatever it takes to pluck eyes out. The Obama re-election team will shred him, he also isn't a conservative. I'll admit you never get much that you want, but Reagans' and true conservatives who aren't just following or listening to gossip see the man in Newt. And Newt has a genious mind and the balls to match it. Don't forget to look in the mirror, leave judgement up to GOD!

      What he really damaged was the attitude of complancy that had then and continues to plague to many Republican reprensentatives. They don't really care who sits in the White House as long as he or she just don't rock the boat. Senator John McCain is a prime example of the mentality I am referring to. The day that he endorsed and Mitt Romney and slammed Newt was the day that I knew who to vote for.

    • BIG KAHUNA.

      Once GOD forgive's a sinner of their sins. It's for gotten and GOD does not remember them at all. It is under the BLOOK OF JESUS.

      The only people that still brings them up are those who are not yet experience the LOVE and the MERCY and the POWER OF GOD TO FORGIVE and FORGET.

      In the Bible. King David had more than one wife and while he had 3 wives. He committed Adultery with another married woman that her husband was a solider in his Army. In fact. King David had the woman pregnant with his child while he was still the King of Israel. When he found that out. He wrote a letter to Joab, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die. The sad thing is that, after the King wrote the letter, he gave it to the woman's husband. He had know idea that, he was carrying his own death sentence.

      But, the Bible said, David turn his heart to the LORD GOD and ask for forgiveness and mercy on his life. And for GOD to spare his life. AND GOD DID. It was through Nathan that GOD told Nathan to tell the King that GOD hath put away his sin; and he will not die.

      It is not the sin that we committed. It is the turning of our hearts toward GOD and ask for HIS Mercy, HIS Love, HIS Forgiveness. Because the Bible said, IF we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness. WE ALL SIN, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

      As it is written, THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE:

      PattyFromTexas, please confirm you are actually from Texas. If you are, it must be Austin as there are lots of RINOs living there. Also, Austin is where LBJ's wife owned radio and tv stations which helped him get elected to the House and Senate. Your recall of history leaves a lot to be desired. Clinton was not prosecuted and impeached by the House for adultery, but for lying to a grand jury. The Democrat Party and their friends in the media spread the lie that Clinton's private life should be separate from his work life and that Newt went after him because of his private life instead of his job. Remember, character is important and reflects how one does his job. Bad character means misbehavior. The Democrat controlled Senate refused to confirm Clinton's impeachment or he would never have served his second term. Your definition of Newt as a serial hypocrite, a liar, and a cheat should be directed to Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, the media, Dick Cheney, the US Supreme Court, and the complete Democrat Party. They are the reason we have this usurper as our President. OMG (Obama Must Go) in November 2012.

    • Beat Obama

      If more people actually believed that defeating OBAMA is the priority, they would vote for Paul. True Paul Bots will not vote for another candidate(right or wrong they just won't). Logically that means GOP loses about 10% of the republican vote which puts Obama ahead against Romney or Gingrich. Paul brings the most cross-over from democrats (Check out Blue Republicans) , receives more of the Independents and is neck and neck with Obama in National polls. With the support of the GOP Obama would lose hands down.

      The republican party is now a cannibal in an effort to maintain the PARTY. That's all they care about. The COUNTRY is not their focus. The Party is their focus. They want Romney to run. Period. Ann Coulter is the same.
      The Party has learned a lot of new tricks from the left of which they are making full use.

    • AL.H

      Newt Or Commi Muslim Obamuse !

    • Paulbot von Paulbot

      That is only because Newt is well aware of the fact that his record cannot pass muster. He isn't attempting to hold any high ground, merely attempting to keep the spotlight off his past. Obviously his tactic has been working. If people actually took time to research Newt and ignored his rhetoric no one outside his immediate family would support him.

  • Ballistic45

    Mitt Romney is the choice of the GOP leadership, Obama and the Main Stream Media... He has been picked out already for us by the elites of the country to run against Obama knowing full well he will loose and if he should win, do the least harm to the Liberal agenda.. A twist on Forest Gump's saying " Evil is as Evil does".... If you want to see these elitist soil their pants, pick Gingrich.. If you want to see them with diarrhea, pick Ron Paul... I would vote for Ron Paul but for one thing, he has a real hard time expressing himself, gets tongue tied easily especially under stress, often jumps from one thing to another without finishing his thoughts.. He wouldn't stand a chance against Obama in a debate, even if Obama went without a teleprompter, LOL...

    • Carmelo Junior

      ROMNEY COULD EVEN LOSE TEXAS TO OBAMA. GINGRICH IS NOT THE BEST CANDIDATE BUT HE WILL NEVER LOSE THE SOUTH TO OBAMA. ROMNEY WILL.

    • Victor

      You are so wrong about that, pls, pls,pls, Don't let that cause you to vote the lesser of two evils, Ron Paul is really the only one that can win against the illegal alien, If he is allowed to fun this time around, According to five states now he will not be on the ballot

      • al.k

        maybe not, but they can still write him in..

      • Ballistic45

        Victor - A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama... That's a fact.. I like the crap right out of Ron, he stands squarely on the Constitution.. Some say he has moved too far Right, that's BS, the GOP has over decades moved to far LEFT... But poor Ron just cannot articulate. Really watch him and LISTEN, it is painful to listen to, you can't help but feel sorry for him because he just can't get his messages out in an effective way... He stumbles on words, changes thoughts mid stream..
        And there is his past stances on some issues that will be killers to him.. We need Independent voters, Ron Paul will scare them off..

    • sandra

      Ballistic, how right you are. I am only high school educated, and only really got into politics since the 2008 election. If I can see what the msm are doing then there should be a lot of voters seeing this. Romney gets all his donations from the same bunch of crooks that Obama does. Obama's health care plan is almost identical to Romneys. I believe if Romney gets the nomination it will be a repeat of the 2008 election. Romney is also a friend of the NWO organizations. It is hard to find his connections to them, but if you dig deep enough, they are there. I wish Ron Paul was better in the debates also, because he is the one we really need to turn things around.

    • Masseyman

      I whole heartedly agree with your comments. I have come to the same understanding after following politics for the last few years since completing 22 years active Navy. This will again be a case of not voting for a great president but for the lesser of the evils.

      I am also extremely fed up with the eletists forcing Romney down my throat. I have lost a lot of respect for O'Reily, Colter and the like. They push the same crap as Madcow, thrill up the leg etc.

    • Mike

      The same elite Republican leadership that produced McCain and his losing campaign is also engineering the attack on Newt. They want Romney and will stop at nothing to make sure Newt goes away. They will probably succeed at it. I do wish the Republicans would stick to the issues and stop tearing each others eyeballs out. This is counter productive and the goal is getting the solutions to problems we are facing.

    I don't know why you bother defending the lizard. It's a despicable phony and traitor and there's not a thing good about it. It's a warmonger, a scoundrel who's (for instance) been pushing to saddle us with Obamacare-like burdens for years. The slimy green creature's image has nothing whatsoever to do with its reality. The Reagan/lizard farce is based on rigged non-issues. The real truth behind this feigned "attack" is that (#1) the lizard fought and defied Reagan many times way back when, and (#2) the "attack" didn't go anywhere near the real issues. An assessment of the lizard's evils from 26 YEARS AGO is gettable by searching its name, "newt", and "majority renegade of the year".

        Perhaps the greatest thing about Newt is that he knows where the bodies are buried in Congress and is well equipped to deal with them. They have good reason to fear him.

    • johnny h

      If Newt attacked Reagan, he will not get the votes of the Real Republicans in USA!
      Reagan was individual. He let his WH staff argue, then HE made the right decidion, (mostly).
      Had Gorbachov WON, the liberals in media and government would no doubt have criticised Reagan.
      What beats me,....He WON !!!! Yet still the liberals try to tarnish the victory of a dead man.
      Reagan infuriated the Washington elite by deciding for America and its Way of Life, rather than follow the Washington (failed) line. Result, USSR is now Russia.
      After the Cold War was over, the media feted Gorbachov, but ignored the one person who had stuck to principles and as a
      result watched the USSR collapse under the weight of its own Bureaucracy.
      America today?? IT has aimed to match the same useless bureaucracy, which in the case of USSR, made that country FAIL.

  • flatspots479

    The era of prosperity was that of Ronald Reagan that inherited a Jimmy Carter depression. Ronald Reagan got us out of that but still to this day all that some can remember was that he raised taxes. Just how do you think obama or Nitt is going to do? This country needs what it can't have and that's another Ronald Reagan. Newt hasn't got a chance with republicans and liberals doing all they can to undermine his candidacy. Nitt is a liberal. Not a conservative. Obamacare is his project. Do you really think he'll repeal it? If you do I have some ocean front property in Arizona I wish to sell you.

    • Mark in LA

      Ronald Reagan was the biggest myth that ever existed. His whole administration was about destroying the middle class. Whether it was free trade, guest workers or illegal immigrants everything was based on destroying the ability of the middle class to get a decent wage. As for the prosperity it was all on borrowed money. It was Jimmy Carter who put Paul Volker in as Fed chairman and it was Volker who caused the recessiona and ended it. Reagan was just a moron who happened to be in the right place at the right time.

      You said it! Why does anyone even think of Nert as a conservative? Besides that, no one in their right mind is going to vote for someone with his immoral past. G(etti)ngrich may have pulled the wool over the eyes of some charlatans such as Wildmon, but for the rest of the country, Nutty-Newt's nomination will simply mean 4 more years of you-know-who!

  • Bernie

    I don't care about if Newt was for or against Reagan. He is not Reagan, does not have the moral character to ever be Reagan! That was then, this is now and now in the last few years Newt's own actions and words have proven he is a BIG government progressive not a Tea Party Conservative. Yes, some of the ethics report was released, but much is still sealed. If he is the nominee there will be an October surprise and they will leak all of the sealed portions of his ethics violations, and Obama will be re elected! As a Christian conservative I cannot and will not vote for Newt.

    • Don

      If Newt should win the nomination, I'm not necessarily promoting Newt, but you must vote for him to defeat odumbo even if you don't like him. I don't care how bad you think of him, he's still better that what we've got now! This guy illegal kenyan president has got to go before he turns America into a sociallist muslim country. In fact, what really needs to happen is that he should be removed NOW by IMPEACHMENT even before the elections as he may already be on his way to destroying America!

      • Flame

        Don, however desirable it is to be rid of Obum, impeachment is not a feasible option, even forgetting that you technically can't "impeach" someone who holds the office illegally. Impeachment takes a vote of 66 in the Senate to convict, and we just don't have the numbers!! I think that's probably why Darrell Issa and others have not attempted to bring the charges.

        At this point, I'm hoping that the Georgia judge will order him off the ballot, the GA Secty of State will comply, and this will lead to an avalanche of states that keep Obum off the ballot.

        • Robert

          Flame, yes the desirable outcome of the case against Obama in Georgia would be for the Secretary of State to take Obama off the ballot, but can you imagine what kind of uproar this would cause? That is probably why it will never come to this, but we can hope for this outcome anyway. We must plan for him to be defeated at the polls in November. OMG (Obama Must Go) in November.

    • gary

      So I guess your going to vote for Obama

    • http://libertyphysics.wordpress.com LibertyPhysics

      Newt was cleared of all ethics violations. Those charges were trumped up by he Democrat enemies.

      As a Christian conservative you will not not vote for Newt, thereby guaranteeing the election of a Socialist/Communist/athiest/lying whatever? Brilliant. You can feel very righteous as our country descends into Hell.

    "Newt "damaged republican party?" The Boahner whom is the Speaker today, led the charge against Newt in 1997. Boahner who took up the Rockefeller- Big Government Establishment-deficit spending-interventionist mantle under the cover of Polosi was then and is now "what damaged the republican party. Under Newt, balanced budget-4.8% unemployment-Gallop approval of 42%. Under Boahner 1.5 trillion annual budget short fall-9% unemployment-Gallop approval of 12%. That is not the opinion, that is the facts.

    • sandra

      Ultor, I have read about all the ethic complaints, and Newt was not charged with any of them. As a matter of fact he was cleared, but because some establishment rhino republicans and democrats were so against him, he resigned. He might not be the best President, but I think the democrats and republicans are both scared of him, because he isn't afraid to stand up to them. Boehner is a laughing stock as speaker. I sent him an email telling him if he didn't have the balls to stand up for the people, instead of caving into the democrats, then he needed to let someone who would have the job. I would vote for Gingrech before I would vote for Romney.

  • DrSique

    I will not deny that there seems to be a coordinated effort to scuttle Gingrichs' campaign, apparently by the Republican establishment. He has, however, damaged himself on more than one occasion, usually on the issue of illegal immigration. His assertion that enforcement cannot work and, therefore, we must consider another "path to legalization" is alienating many conservatives. I supported the Reagan amnesty in 1986, but I will never again accept the word of ANYONE in government that this is a solution. Another amnesty will do nothing more than lead to another massive wave of illegal immigration. Amnesty was denied by Americans more than once in the recent past but government keeps on pushing. Clearly, those in Washington no longer represent the people. Their own political survival trumps the best interest of our nation.

    • donjusko

      Look at Newt's voting issues not just the person.
      NEWT GINGRICH is for increases in government size, he wants Obamacare. He voted for the government control of the Dept of Education giving us the socialistic schools we have now which teach the ethics of the New Socialist Society. It's the bases of taking religion out of schools and teaching internationalism which is against our nations sovereignty. Newt is not following the Constitution, he wants it replaced, he's a Builderburg. He has been a member of the Council of Foreign Nations that was started to abolish national sovereignty. He voted for GATT which controls the World Trade Organization, NAFTA and TARP. Newt voted to give amnesty to illegal immigrants, now he wants to change our immigration system. Newt wants to continue foreign aid, Obama is giving it to our enemies. Newt Gingrich is diametrically opposed to the principles of the Constitution and Ron Paul. He backs the UN, the UN backs Agenda 21, NAU and NWO.

    • Billee

      People like you who pick on ONE issue and say, I'll never vote for him are naive. You look at the whole record and see that for Newts faults, he has done way more good for this country as a whole than ANY OTHER candidate still fighting.

    • jstc

      Nert is most definitely the pro-amnesty candidate. Romney, Santorum and Dr. Paul have all spoken out against it. Now Nert is sucking up to the brown vote even more by talking about Rubio as his running-mate. This is even more absurd than Nert's own candidacy in the first place. I will not vote for any GOP ticket that has Nert or Rubio on it. These demagogues want to turn this country into Northern Mexico/Atzlan. If they succeed, there will be no more America as we know it. Nothing of the original USA will survive in Nutty-Newt's new wetback-majority America. Wake up, White man - before it's too late!

  • ray doodnauth

    President Ronald Regan is dead and gone, all the good things or bad things become past. Newt is not Regan, if he wants to adapt his style and the good he have done, so be it.

    If you look at the confidence rating of Congress now.. and look at some of those who are behind the attacks against Newt.. gotta wonder.

I love to listen to him talk but like Slick Willie and wonder boy in our W.H. what he says and what he does are polar opposites.

      I knew Ronald Reagan very well, I voted for him twice in California for Governor and twice for President of the United States.
      He was a great man, but he is gone now so let us move on. There is no perfect canidate, so let us pick the best one we can.
      I believe Rush Limbaugh has it right, you might listen to him, he is the next best thing to President Reagan.

Get behind whatever NOMINEE> Even if it Nut job Ron Paul who claims I never voted for an earmark(Which is true_ he put plenty IN bills thatwere going to pass with orwithout his vote THEN VOTED AGINST HIS OWN EARMARKS> Check congressional records at US CONGRESS .GOV they almost factual.

    • Bonnie

      I agree, Congress is not behind Newt because they are afraid of the shake up he will cause. While Romney has 76 Congressional approvals has to be scary. The Tea Party won the House Majority but has been fighting an uphill battle against the RHINOs. The establishment does not like the Tea Party. We are upsetting their apple cart by demanding conservative values.

  • Darrell Maynard

    All I know is that Mr Gingrich said early in his candidacy is that he had done alot of things in his life he wasn't proud of but that he had asked God to forgive him and he is no longer that person, I speak from personal experience as I myself was totally immoral and I asked God to forgive me and I am not the same man now . I am not perfect and neither is Mr Gingrich , we don't claim perfection as we are all human and as such do err from time to time but I am sure glad doesn't hold the PAST against me , please pray about where you were or are at this time and remember and Give Newt Gingrich a chance, yesterday is gone , tomorrow is not promised but if we do right today that is all that matters.

    Thanks and God Bless
    Darrell Maynard

    • Sam Fox

      Darrell M, I agree whit what you say about God & forgiveness. I had an encounter with Jesus that changed my life as well in '69.

      But I am not convinced Newt's 'repentance' is real. He is a serial liar. Why, if Newt was real, would he leave a S. Baptist Church & go Catholic? The Baptists are much more in line with the Bible than the Catholics. Not cutting them, just being factual.

      I am not judging Newt. I do question his sincerity. If he had been touched by Jesus would he not e out of the race, getting his life in order & studying the Bible? That's what all most of us do when Christ touches our lives. HE becomes priortii, not a Prez race.

      Even setting the above aside, if you look at Newt's record over the years, it is not all that in line with the Constitution. It is much more in line with big govt.
      http://www.newswithviews.com/Nelson/kelleigh121.h...

      Quote from Newt's mentor's new age highly recommended by Newt book, The Third Wave. From P2 of above link.

      " Toffler believes mankind is entering a new system. To the founding fathers in his book, he wrote, "For the system of government you fashioned including the very principles on which you based it, is increasingly obsolete, and hence increasingly, if inadvertently, oppressive and dangerous to our welfare. It must be radically changed and a new system of government invented, a democracy for the 21st century. For this wisdom, above all, I thank Mr. Jefferson who helped create the system that served us so well for so long, and that now must, in its turn, die and be replaced." " [End]

      Darell, I heard this come from Newt also. There are a lot of people that hold his running around on his wives, against him. I know that there is not one person out there that hasn't done things in there lives that they wished they could take back. I also did some things when I was younger that I am not proud of, but like you, I turned to God, and have tried to live a Christian life. We all fall short, but we don't make the same mistakes over and over again. We learn from those mistakes and we also ask God to lead us in making the right decisions. Newt I believe is telling us the truth in the debates, because he tried in the beginning to not bring up anything negative about any of the other candidates, then Romney threw the first blow. When Romney does throw out some things like in the last debate, New doesn't lie about them. That is what I have seen from him. He is also older and has Grandchildren that he wants to see have a life of freedom, and prosperity. I just hope Romney is not the republican nominee, or we will only go further down the road with what Obama is doing.

    The biggest fraud in government in Obama. Blame Bush Obama. He has more than quadrupled the debt, but it's till Bush's fault.
    Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first term in office:

    Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises ever.

    Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever!

    Wow ! Talk about change.

    Fresh from his inauguration celebrations, President Obama was flying high.

    After one of the nation's most inspiring political campaigns, the election of America 's first black president had captured the hopes and dreams of millions.

    To his devout followers, it was inconceivable that a year later his administration would be gripped in self-imposed crisis.

    Of course, they don't see it as self-imposed. It's all George Bush's fault !

    George Bush, who doesn't have a vote in congress and who no longer occupies The White House, is to blame for it all.

    He broke Obama's promise, to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.

    He broke Obama's promise, to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.

    He broke Obama's promise, to end earmarks.

    He broke Obama's promise, to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

    He broke Obama's promise, to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.

    He broke Obama's promise, to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America's most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

    He broke Obama's promise, to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.

    He broke Obama's promise, to end no-compete contracts with the government.

    He broke Obama's promise, to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.

    He broke Obama's promise, for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.

    He broke Obama's promise, to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday services with his family by Easter of last year.

    Yes, it's all George Bush's fault! President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration.
    IT'S PATHETIC.

      Well said Joyce.
      Remember that Obama just last week, snuck in a bill to combine under himself, all parts of the State which constiutionally are separate to prevent dictatorship.
      He also, Reluctantly he said, but still signed, the Terror Bill, (remember military prison, arrest and detention without trail or due process)?
      Who cares what Newt said about anything if Obama is preparing the way for his administration to hang onto power without votes?
      Oh! And I noticed that a Florida Court issued a summons for him to appear before it ref. the birth certificate issue.
      Anyone but Obama would be behind bars now for refusing to appear.
      But Obama ignored due process AGAIN!!
      Morally he is now a fugitive from justice.
      WHY is nothing happening about this, election time or no election time.
      If our President ignores the Costitutional law of the land, then he is no better than a renegade who decided to fight on for the Confederacy after the Civil War! The Union WON, and the Laws made after that victory bind civil servants too, including Presidents!
      Keep it up Joyce, you obviously love America!

      Hi Joyce, Add another lie, err, broken promise: Anyone who is retired and makes under $50,000/yr. will pay no income tax. I wonder if I can just tell that to the IRS this year on my income tax return and ask for all of the taxes back that I paid in???? NOT!!!!

      Thanks for this list. I am going to send it to my Senators, and Speaker Boehner.

    • awakenow

      Joyce, of course it was certainly not all the fault of Bush. And, yes, Obama has added far more debt (4.2 Trillion) in just three years than Bush did (4.1 Trillion) during his eight years.

      However, the fact remains that Bush grew the federal government greatly and the national debt. When Bush left office, the debt was just over 10 Trillion.

      As much as we might wish to believe otherwise, Bush was not a conservative if one believes that being a conservative means working toward a small and limited federal government ... along with the huge spending that occurs because of that.

      Also, the Republican Party enabled this to happen by continuing to vote for one debit ceiling increase after the other during that time .. just as they have done since Bush left office. And, it seems that the our GOP and our Republican president certainly believe Dick Cheney when he said "deficits don't matter."

      They sure do matter. Read this: http://dallasfed.org/news/speeches/fisher/2008/fs...

      • Joyce

        One thing you left out, was a lot of what caused the Bush debt.. He had (a). 9-11, (b) the war, and (c) hurricane Catrina. What did Obama have that caused us to raise trillions of more dollars.......nothing. His was all self inflicted. He shoved Obama Care down our throats by arm twisting and bribing, which the majority of the nation didn't want, and has now endlessly spent spent spent. He has stopped drilling for oil, and continues to side with the evil countries that hate us and want us dead, and now we are forced to buy oil from those countries. These are a few of the reasons he has quadrupled Bush's debt. Bush didn't cause 9-11, or hurricane catrina. Let face it.....Obama has a Marxist/Socialist agenda, and he will keep going until he achieves it. WE CAN ONLY HOPE THE PEOPLE WAKE UP BEFORE THE NOVEMBER ELECTIONS, or we will have lost this country, if Obama is re-elected.

      • Joyce

        awakenow: The difference is the three issues that caused the debt Bush passed on, was: (a) 9-11, (b) hurricane Katrina, and (c) the war. Two of these were not his fault. All of the trillions Obama has caused was self inflicted. Spend, spend and spend some more. He shoved Obama care down our throats, when the majority of people didn't want it. That is something will will cost trillions. He stopped our drilling for oil, and we now rely on countries that hate us and want us dead, the same one's Obama sides with, and then turns his back on our allies. Obama has his far left agenda and will keep going until he destroys this country. We can only hope the people will wake up before the November election.

  • Jonathan Gartner

    The real reason that a lot of negatives are coming out is because like Reagan the establishmen wants Romney. Micheal Reagan relates that Bush who was the establishment canidate was a Rockefeller Republican. I was there Ronald many times did not like Bush and what he wanted to do and unknown to many truly had doubts about him. The latest ads about Newt are false or taken out of context. Now like then this election is very important and has many things the same except on steroids. Carter was a idiot much like Obama and also a socialist while Obama is clearly a marxist. We have a canidate with Newt that knows how to get things done unlike Romney whom with we would end up with gays still in the military, abortion going as strong as ever and Romneycare in place. Santorum for the sake of the Party which has shown itself not to really care for Romney should quit and endorse Newt. Paul of course needs medication that is now ready at the counter

      Santorum is trustworthy to raise the debt ceiling (x 5 already), vote for Unions (against the right to work) and I really like his foreign policy... maybe we can invade cuba soon, as he suggested in the last debate.

      • Tigerfred1

        Well put. I guess I'll stick with Gingrich until someone better emerges. Wish they would focus more on issues pertinent to 2012. I say cut taxes 5% across the board from 2010's final amount spent, and increase taxes 1% across the board, all surplus goes toward debt reduction. In two years, cut 3% of spending and increase taxes across the board 2%. Then in two more years, 3% reduction in spending and 3% increase across the board. Then evaluate where we are budget wise, and move forward accordingly.
        Who do you support for the repub nominee?

        • Gabriel

          Ron Paul, that's who. Cut 30% from the budget first year. Under your plan, the debt would get to some $22 trillion before the budget would balance, but then the interst on the debt would be $1.5 trillion per year. So it still wouldn't be balanced actually Some of you may fear Pauls foreign policy stance, personally I FEAR ALL THE OTHER CANDIDATES FISCAL POLICIES FAR MORE. No money means no military at all.

      I agree. Rick Santorum is getting better but I don't see him as a leader yet. I think he needs a few more years to mature into a good leader. Character does count...and so does forgiveness. Not man's forgiveness, for most of us will never get it, but God's forgiveness. I believe Gingrich when he said he sought God's forgiveness, and I believe God forgives every sinner who humbles himself before Him and honestly asks for forgiveness. We need to ask God for discernment, wisdom, courage and faith to elect the people He wants us to have to fulfill His plan for us. I also believe that God is withdrawing His hand of protection from our country because of our moral decline and unbelieving spirit, and we are reaping His judgement on us.

      • Ronda

        Well said! My thoughts exactly.

      • Tigerfred1

        You are right on all counts, Judy. The other side doesn't see it. Never will. We all want a complete candidate, and there is none. So, we have to pick the best to deal with the immediate issues. I wonder if Newt isn't our Winson Churchill to get us through the next four years. Then bring in someone else, just like the British did in WW II. I really don't care for any onth them, but all would be infinitely better than what we have. But the need to stop cutting each other up. And the Paulbots need to get a little more rational on policies outside of the realm of the Fed. TEA Party...yes. Libertarian...no. Ron Paul...hell no.

    • Sashamanda

      Santorum was the first in the debates to claim that Gingrich was fined and forced to resign because of the ethics charges. He had to have known that wasn't true, because he claimed earlier that he got into politics because of Newt. If character counts, Santorum shouldn't have lied for his own advancement.

      • upaces88

      How many of you have checked Santorum's past voting records? He is FOR War and Ron isn't. Haven't we spent enough on WAR and lost really patriotic and dedicated service people? Isn't it past time to build back America and use that money for putting us back to work?

    • TruthWFree

      I like him too. He is really coming across as a man of principle.

  • Jerry

    The worst thing Reagan agreed to was a tax hike with the promised spending cuts of 3 dollars for every dollar increase. He forgot his own principle, "Trust but verify." I remember those Reagan years and the important role Gingrich played along with some fellow Republicans in the House in promoting the conservative cause. The establishment Republicans (with a progressive bent) want to bring Newt down precisely because of the fact that he did bring real change in a balanced budget, Welfare reform, etc. You can't be a wimp or fail to make enemies on both sides of the aisle in D.C. and actually change anything in the direction of reform and smaller government. We aren't going to win that battle overnight, but we need a person who is capable of doing it. Newt has.

    Once the Obama campaign begins, you'd better be ready for much of the same. Lies mean nothing to him. He will use them. We will need someone who is used to standing up to lies and fighting back and Newt is the one who can do it. Why do you think he had trouble with Republican establishment politicians? He took a dive for the Republicans to stop the incessant nagging from the Democrats. It did not end, the target just changed and always will. It is their practice and policy. Most people just won't admit this! It's similar to the way Sarah Palin left to allow the focus of their vitriol to get off the Republican Party. They don't stop, they just have to re-gather their energy and attack a new target! Don't be stupid!

    As a lifetime conservative the most important aspect of the coming election is defeating obama. Newt despite is rhetoric is a disaster not only for the party but for the country. If you want to win the debares against obama and lose the election then newt is the answer. If we are interested in defeating obams then romeny with a good conservative such as rubio,or santorum. We are attempting to elect a president for the country not for a republican debate team!!! So called cionservatives who support newt must have a hidden agenda of wanting to have obama re-elected so they will have 4 more years to rant and rave while he totally destroys and brings about the collapse of our once great nation. America needs to be restored ti its greatness and represnet what we as American conservatives are all about, and newt would be the last person to do that. He debates well, tallks a good game plan howwver his personal life and much of his background is a disaster. As conservatives we need to put our country first and do whatever it takes to defeat obama and not get caught up in newt's koolaid!

    Darrell Maynard , You are right we ask the Lord for forgiveness and by His Grace we are forgiven. Newt is forgiven. Sadly, because of his affairs and the sealed ethics report if nominated there will be an October surprise and Obama will be re elected. With God he is forgiven but people don't forget like the Lord does. Newt has also continued to prove he is a big government progressive. As I have prayed for him and about this election I continue to receive the word deception. I have to trust what the Lord is giving me. I don't believe Newt will bring this Country back to the Lord. He is more full of himself than he has allowed God to be in him. Listening to Rick and Mitt's answer in the debate about the role that the Lord would play in their decisions as President, there was no doubt they loved the Lord. Newt sounded like he was saying what he thought Christians wanted to hear. I don't say these things as judgments, but as my own perceptions as I seek the Holy Spirit for guidance.

    Mike, Good post. If you want to know what REALLY happened on the inside while Newt was Speaker of the House, ask the opinions of those who WORKED DIRECTLY with him in Congress. In no way can Newt DEFEND his behavior for taking money from Freddie Mac and say that he did NOT KNOW they were about to go "over the cliff" and nearly bring this country to it's knees financially. He continued to take money from them (in whatever capacity he now claims) even though people had been warning about what was about to happen, including Senator Santorum, many others & President Bush.

    • AlleyOops75

      Joyce, who are you kidding....Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae are quasi government entities while at the same time they are publicly held corporations and their stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange...After the housing bubble broke due to sub standard loans being allowed to any Tom, Dick or Harry that came along and with government bailouts of Freddie & Fannie, no wonder they would seek the advice of Newt's company...Even then, they refused to heed his advice...sounds familiar doesn't it when Obama asked Bowles & Simpson to come up with ways of saving government money...the advise by these two prominent men met upon deaf ears.

    Gingrich Supported Goldwater? Newt Helped Reagan End the Cold War? Said Newt Gingrich in the Tampa Debate: “I went to a Goldwater organizing session in 1964. I met with Ronald Reagan for the first time in 1974. I worked with Jack Kemp, and Art Laffer and others to develop supply side economics in the late ’70s. I helped Governor Reagan become President Reagan. I helped pass the Reagan economic program and worked with the National Security Council on issues including the collapse of the Soviet Empire…” Said Gingrich before: On Reagan’s decision to meet with Mikhail Gorbachev, Salon’s Glenn Greenwald notes: “Newt Gingrich… denounced President Reagan’s rapprochement with Gorbachev in 1985 as potentially “the most dangerous summit for the West since Adolf Hitler met with Chamberlain in 1938 at Munich.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embed...

    • Tink

      You are dead on, Red Rock. Wolf was trying to get a fight started between Newt and Mitt. He didn't want to debate the issues. He wanted to talk about the personal charges between the two. Wolf and CNN get an F in my book. The best debate was the one Hucklebee put on. He would not allow the canidates to critacize each other. Newt does have some baggage but he is sharp enough to overcome it, if people will stop lying about him. He is smart enough to solve some of the problems facing this nation. I will vote for anyone runing aginst Obama and his Chicago Politics. I am pulling for Newt.

    The foundation of Liberty is godly self-government. The more a person governs himself, the less he has to be governed. The less a person governs himself, the more he must be governed. How can a person -- like Newt -- who has repeatedly demonstrated his inability to govern his own behavior ever be capable of leading our whole nation toward genuine Liberty?
    And who here believes that having as First Lady of the United States a woman who thinks having sex with another woman's husband is just fine is a good idea?

  • http://www.PolitiJim.com politiJim

    If Gingrich was so anti-Reagan, how is it that Nancy and Michael - family that has exhibited maybe an even over protection of Reagan's legacy - participating in "passing the torch" from Ronnie to Newt? Moreover, how is it that Gingrich left office leading Congress to a 60% approval rating (from a 20% when he took over as Speaker) if he created so much damage?

    (Newt vs Mitt stats of what they DID - not what they said - here: http://www.politijim.com/2012/01/stats-on-what-ne...

    Santorum is a good guy, Paul is truly wonderful on economic issues - but I think we should consider finally taking the party away from the elite statists, and finally completing what Regan started over 30 years ago.

  • Bernie

    Dilbert, You need to wake up! The Portly, Pompous, Progressive cannot beat Obama because they have too much on him and will leak everything sealed in the ethics report in October! Newt has too much baggage and the Dems will open the suitcase and expose everything in it! I wished the Tea Party had stood up for Rick, but they relabeled Newt a Conservative and relabeling does not make it so. Now there is all this division and Newt is as much the fault because of his record as the establishment is. The new mantra that Newt is not establishment is a joke. He didn't spend all those years in DC not being establishment. He can't un ring that bell!

    • SAM

      I think everything on obama should be leaked as well. How his baggage has been covered up! Dump it all out there. |If you want obama in the WH for another 4, then nominate someone weak who cannot debate strongly with him, I think Santorum and Romney are good men but do not have the strength in the debates that Gingrich has. REMEMBER: THE GOAL IS TO GET RID OF obama.

  • Ultor

    There is too many twinkle toed-hand holding-historical revisionists troweling out the prattle of the Rockefeler Steak-tartare crowd while believing that they are being anti-establishment. If you are reading "Godfather Politics" you had meat and potato's last night for dinner just like me, not the rich-elitist tid-bits consumed by Romney, Dole, Coulter, and "the Boahner." Romney can afford to buy the GOP nomination assisted by every RINO in the US Congress, but Romney who is funded by the Mormon Bank, Bain Capitol, and numerous off-shore accounts cannot beat the media oligarchy. Once they (the establishment) are sure Romney has the nomination, his religion will become the issue, and it is a huge issue.
    1. treatment of women
    2. treatment of people of color
    3. collection of data on individuals not members
    4. baptizing Jews postmortem
    5. child abuse on both boys and girls
    6. excommunication
    7. secretiveness of the Mormon society
    8. treatment of homosexuals
    9. "Oath of vengeance against the United States" for killing the "prophets"
    10. 43% of Americans "will not vote for a Mormon for President of the United States"
    Republicans cannot raise these issues because the first person to do so will be labeled intolerant - the DNC combined with the national press, and every university professor, will use it then and they are preparing for it now. Romney is absolutely NOT going to be President of the United States.

    • upaces88

      I AM going to get blasted for this -- go ahead -- thumb me down.
      The first time I saw Romney speak? I shook my head back and forth with a realllly bad feeling about him. He gave me the "willies".

      You are 100% correct.

The Book of Mormon, 2 Nephi 30:6, now reads: "they shall be a PURE and a delightsome people."

    Good luck with the "Romney" issue America. You can run from it now because it makes you uncomfortable, but never for one second believe the Obama machine is scared of reminding you what is really in your candidates heart.

  • Rentschmeister

    Newt Gingrich is a Progressive Republican, pure and simple (just like Mitt Romney). He is the Republican version of Barack Obama. He thinks that he has better ideas on how to make big, fat bloated Government work than the Progressives on the Left do. I'm not sure why this stuff is so hard to figure out. He is a Big Government Toadie that will say whatever he thinks the crowd in front of him wants him to say. Has everyone forgotten how much of a disgrace he was when we ran him out of his position as Speaker? Remember folks it was REPUBLICANS who voted Newt out, NOT Democrats.

    • AlleyOops75

      You are most certainly entitled to your opinions and have every right to support whom you think would make the best POTUS but you don't have the right to make false statements...It was both sides of the aisle that brought Newt to his knees...And why did they do it...simply said, Newt brought about some very important changes to our system of government; Newt was the leader of the house when we had four balanced budgets (none since) and he was speaker when he convinced both sides that the welfare system had to be changed for the better....When you get someone in office who upsets the status quo, who steps on some pork belly congressman's toes, there's going to be an adverse reaction...that's what happened to Newt.

      • Rentschmeister

        How old are you? 12? You obviously don't recall the 90's.
        From the article: "GINGRICH STEPS DOWN IN FACE OF REBELLION" Washington Post, Saturday, November 7, 1998;
        http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/gov...
        "Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), the charismatic soul of the Republican Revolution whose members turned on him after unexpected losses in Tuesday's election, announced yesterday he will quit as speaker of the House."

        Gosh, don't see any Democrats on the list of names included in the article. Would you like me to post them? Didn't realize that the Minority Party had a say in who the Majority picked as Speaker...........maybe you'd share that info with the class? Or perhaps we could get into the down and dirty where Newt's "Balanced Budget" nonsense is just that. Nonsense. Taking from Social Security to say the Budget is balanced is a fraud........just like that disgusting Progressive Newt Gingrich.

        The TRUTH is out there, instead of being a schill for a Progressive Republican, why not go out and try to find some?

        "False Statements" Indeed.

        • AlleyOops75

          Yes, we've all heard that ole stale argument before that the SS fund was used to get to a balanced budget...I stand by my statement with regard to Newt, that he did more than any speaker other than Tip O'Neil to change the direction our country has taken...admittedly, it was short lived as the subsequent speakers have all caved in to the wishes of the politically correct bunch which includes the ole guard establishment GOP and their regressive minions...I had much better have a progressive as our leader than a regressive who believes in maintaining the status quo or worse...BTW, my date of birth is 5/8/1929 how about yours youngin?

I would highly recommendall of you read the five reasons for the decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Edward Gibson) and ask your self if this reflect what is going on in our country today. You will be the people responsable for obama getting a second chance to destroy America. God help us all !

    • Rentschmeister

      The HILARIOUS bit is where you think Newt "Third Wave" Gingrich is different than Mitt Romney!!! You do realize that Gingrich is a guy who said that Woodrow Wilson and FDR are his political heroes, right? Newt said that FDR was the GREATEST President of the 20th Century. Newt has labelled HIMSELF a "Progressive"............................and you want to talk about how bad Romney is? Talk about not being able to see the forest thru the trees...........sad, very sad.

      "God help us all" Indeed.

      • AlleyOops75

        I think Newt is right about FDR and so do most historians...it doesn't mean that Newt believed in the policies of FDR, just that Roosevelt came along at a very important time in our history...a time that required firm leadership...a time that required a leader who could keep this nation in an upbeat frame of mind during the greatest war in our history...That's what Newt and most historians are talking about when the place FDR among the top ten of all our presidents.

  • Rentschmeister

    In 1994, Gingrich described himself as "a conservative futurist". He said that those who were trying to define him should look no farther than "The Third Wave", a 1980 book written by Alvin Toffler. The book describes our society as entering a post-industrial phase in which abortion, homosexuality, promiscuity, and divorce are perfectly normal, even virtuous. Toffler penned a letter to America's "founding parents," in which he said: "The system of government you fashioned, including the principles on which you based it, is increasingly obsolete, and hence increasingly, if inadvertently, oppressive and dangerous to our welfare. It must be radically changed and a new system of government invented---a democracy for the 21st century." He went on to describe our constitutional system as one that "served us so well for so long, and that now must, in its turn, die and be replaced." Do you follow so far?

    • AlleyOops75

      Anything wrong with looking toward the future...much better than living in the miserable past of the 60s forward.

      • Rentschmeister

        Newt embraces: ""The system of government you fashioned, including the principles on which you based it, is increasingly obsolete, and hence increasingly, if inadvertently, oppressive and dangerous to our welfare. It must be radically changed and a new system of government invented---a democracy for the 21st century." He went on to describe our constitutional system as one that "served us so well for so long, and that now must, in its turn, die and be replaced."

        And YOUR response is "Anything wrong with looking toward the future"?!?!?!?

        My, you are quite the good little Progressive, aren't you? You, Barack Obama, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Karl Marx...................keep up the good work!

        Sooner or later you'll get Big, Fat, Bloated Government to craft man into "Perfection", right Mr.Progressive?

        I seriously want to thank you for illustrating my point as to why you and your Progressive Comraden are anything but Conservative.

        • AlleyOops75

          Now I get it, when you're fed the truth and the truth begins to hurt you, your retaliation is the same as all who get caught making innuendos and half truths and statements with no truths at all...I've finally gotten it through my thick head, you're a Ron Paul, libertarian supporter...I should have known.

        • Rentschmeister

          You don't even know what Progressive's are, do you? When people like Hillary Clinton and Newt Gingrich proudly proclaim that they are PROGRESSIVE. That word has meaning. Since you're really shaky on the whole "Conservatism" versus "Progressivism" fight that is going on in this Country, let me attempt to clue you in.
          Barry Goldwater was a CONSERVATIVE. David Rockefeller was a PROGRESSIVE. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQQaSY46rGk
          ONE person elevates the rights of the INDIVIDUAL over the State. ONE person elevates the power of the STATE over the individual (PROGRESSING from all those "Individual Rights" nonsense, right?)

          I want to thank you again for illustrating why people like you clamor to Progressive Scum like Gingrich. By the way, I wouldn't vote for Ron Paul if someone put a gun to my head. He is JUST AS DANGEROUS as the Progressive Gingrich but for a completely different reason.

  • Rentschmeister

    When asked what he believed in, he pointed people to the ideology of Alvin Toffler. In fact, Newt WROTE THE FORWARD to Toffler's book, "Creating a New Civilization: The Politics of the Third Wave". Do you understand what that means? He's not just a "Fan", he was committed enough to the "Third Wave" to add his voice in support of Toffler's ideology. In 1995, he gave a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Affairs: "The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution," he said. "Under our [constitutional system] — either we're going to have to rethink our Constitution, or we're going to have to rethink our process of decision-making." He went on to profess an oxymoronic belief in "very strong but limited federal government," and pledged, "I am for the United Nations."

    ANYONE with an Internet Search engine can find the long list of absurd, Progressive bilge that Gingrich has spewed over the years. Yet people who claim to be "Conservative" label him "Conservative" as well..........?

  • Rentschmeister

    At some point as Conservatives, we are going to have to be 100% honest about who and what our belief system is built upon. Are we stupid enough to believe that if we do business with people who have sworn to murder us for not believing in their so called "God" that everything will just work it self out and they'll leave us alone? Are we stupid enough to believe that if we keep appointing leaders whose CORE ideology is NO DIFFERENT than that of our Political Enemies that everything will work itself out and our leaders will magically reflect our Conservative belief system instead of who they truly are? Will these Big, Fat, Bloated Government Supporters (as long as that Government is run THEIR WAY) NOT keep moving the Nation we love further and further towards the Leftist cliff that we seem destined to fall off of? Or will these Big, Fat, Bloated Government Progressives on the Right WILLINGLY divest themselves of the power they have amassed and give the reins of our Nation back to THE PEOPLE whom this Nation was actually built for instead?

    What has the history of our Nation under the stewardship of these Progressives on the Right shown us on that note so far? Hmmm......Teddy Roosevelt (who started the ball rolling) down thru Nixon, Ford, H.W. Bush, W. Bush...............when will we say ENOUGH is ENOUGH?

    • AlleyOops75

      Why don't you give us the source of this blather...could it come from the left wing media matters or perhaps the Daily KOS?

      • Rentschmeister

        So is this you admitting that you don't have the testicular fortitude to actually do the work that those of us who want the truth have already done? Is something as BASIC as Googling:

        "Alvin Toffler Newt Gingrich"

        beyond your scope? Big, Fat Progressive's like your boy Newt tend to run their mouths quite a bit. There is literally DECADES of Newt Gingrich talking about and PROUDLY proclaiming himself a Progressive.

  • Robert Lebischak

    Lets hope the new boss is better than the old boss. Looks like that is the song again. Romney is in a position to buy America. It's no longer what a person stands for, if it was Newt would win, now it's how much money you have to purchase lies and half truths about the other guy and put them on tv. Romney doesn't seem to be able to stand on his own past, so he takes things out of context and uses it against another. Good old Paul has done similar. We the people don't have to think any more, we just need to listen to the guy with the most money and do what he says, and we'll all be happy and secure, and have what we all need. Funny, isn't that what Obama said also. America wake up, don't buy the lies, Newt is the one that can with the help of the American People bring this Nation back.

  • steve

    You people have no clue about real life, you all forget history or just listen to what the libs tell you, the dems want Romney because he is a lib, he said so himself, the republicans that have been there for many years dont want next because he will stop all they have been doing for years and getting rich off US, just as he did as speaker... if we dont support next this. Country is screwed we will be stuck with Obama, or Romney that believes all that he and the dems do, wake up people, this is our country, not theirs,Obama or Romney, a. A vote for anyone then next, will be a vote for Obama, dont believe me, then just wait until Nov and you will see I was right then it will be to late.

  • John Illinois

    John Boehner WAS NOT SPEAKER before Newt. It was a Demonrat who was speaker. Newt was the first Republican speaker since 1954. There was a Demonrat named Bohner from Michigan who filed something like 81 ethics charges against Newt, none of which stuck.

    • Randy131

      I believe it was 84 ethics charges, and you're correct, they were all found untrue, but Newt's attorney mis-filed paperwork, which caused the investigations to go farther on then needed to, and Newt was assesed for only the extra time spent on the investigations because of his attorney's mis-filings, in the amount of $300,000.00, and there were no fines for any wrong doing. Newt didn't resign until two years after these findings were publicized, and it was not in disgrace. Mitt Romney knows all this, but his political advertisements, not the PAC's advertisements that supports him, are lieing to the public to make Newt look bad so Mitt can win the nomination, and I for one will never vote for Mitt Romney because of his lies, a reason I can't stand Obama, and which Mitt Romney has now shown he is exactly like, besides his Romneycare too.

  • Qwyat

    What I believe is that Romney has never been a flip-flop candidate. He has his core beliefs and he knows now what to say to get elected. He has been campaigning for 8 years, after all. He said that he was pro-choice, then said he was pro-life but supported his voters in Mass. because that was what they wanted. So I say, he must not care too much about pro-life. Its one thing to say yesterday I was a democrat, today I'm a republican. But if someone said the majority of the voters don't think a baby is a baby until it is born, and he says...ok, you guys are right. This is typical of someone that gets elected, then his flip becomes evident, and the flop goes away.

    Obama will win big time against Romney. The GOP has not learned from the last big defeat and will lose again. They are giving Obama the victory by having Mitt Romney run against him. The last election was a Progressive Liberal like McCain. And now another Progressive Liberal Mitt Romney.
    The GOP has so little confidence in their Conservatism, it shows over and over. And when they lose this election, they will be finished for many, many years as a viable party, maybe forever. And then they will deserve it.
    No guts, no convictions, no stamina.

  • DrBillLemoine

    Newt is picking up where he left off leaving the Speakership and congress years ago--trashing friends as much as foes. Now he trashes Romney. He would trash everyone if nominated and, most unlikely, elected president. That's why he's a loner, no campaign staff, no friends from before, no support for his candidacy. That's what intellect does--takes a position and fights all comers. Romney is picking up where he left off, not reelected Governor. He's voluntarily given up his healthcare accomplishment to paper over his liberal state leadership. He claims business success, but can't reconcile its detachment from middle class work ethic and morality. Paul is anti-modern wanting to trash all progress of the past century in personal rights and advancement in freedoms. Santorum is holier-than-thou for the evangelicals who are too hypocritical to engender support. That leaves President Obama whose experience is enabling others to reach excellence without trashing anybody, only highlighting the opposition's remoteness from everyday people and mainstream work ethics and personal needs. Who would you choose?

  • Irene

    I will not vote for Romney! he is and was a Liberal Democrat! he is now a Moderate Republican which is--Moderate Republican = Liberal Democrat! He will not remove obamacare he will only jerry-rig it. He will not oppose Gay marriage! He, when all is said and done will be exposed as part of George Soros' "Shadow Government" implementing his "SEVERE TOTAL STUPID LUNACY" ideology of the "Open Society!" George Soros owns the Democratic Party and is looking to now own the Republican Party under the umbrella "Shadow Government" "Open Society!" He has a history in Europe of detstroying governments in Europe and is focusing on destroying the American Goverment thru this "Shadow Government." He is doing this by attacking the entire spectrum of American Values and American Family.

  • John Eidsmoe

    The issue concerning Gingrich is not forgiveness; it is trust. Gingrich hasn't sinned against me; there's nothing for me to forgive. But he's acted dishonorably in the past, both in his private and in his public life, and he hasn't regained my trust.
    And character is of foremost importance, in the Presidency more than in any other office.

    • AlleyOops75

      Character like Swiss & Cayman Islands bank accounts....Why does Romney feel it's necessary to hide his cash in foreign depositories? It takes lots of character to do that, don't you think?

    Propaganda..Newt is not anti Reagan

  • goodday

    Newt expresses his ideas easily and in a captivating way and gives great illustrations from his wast knowledge of history. (He has made me renew my knowledge of past US presidents.)
    Mitt is often "painful" to watch when he stammers, stutters and often hesitates before selecting his point of view for the day. To me, he comes accross as a "people pleaser" eager to go along. I expect him to say "si, si" any moment.
    Santorum speeches are boring. I try hard but my mind wanders off the screen. Too much pressure on his vocal cords or something...
    Ron offers one-liners in his whining and complaining voice. He seldom offers real solutions to problems. Knowing he is short in his comments he has my attention.
    Obama lacks sincere warmth and therefore comes accross as a cool and calculating politician who knows inside he doesn't have honest positives to offer.

    • AlleyOops75

      Believe me, I like Col. West as well but should he decide to jump into the fray, the media would be all over him as well as the GOP establishment...His military career was cut short because West went against the grain of his superior officers.

  • Steve

    First- I need to state I aqm an ABO voter. However, I fear the outcome if Romney is in. The biggest ding against Obama is Obamacare. Romney has no leg to stand on in that argument, since it was patterned after Romneycare. And he continues to defned the decision to instill it within Massachusetts. He refuses to state he has EVER made a mistake anywhere, instead defending every stupid decision he ever made. Meanwhile, Newt has a 98% conservative voiting record. Look it up.The establishment does NOt want him in place, because he will do what he did last time that got him run out on a rail. He will destroy their power encalves, and make them become simply representatives. Carl Rove and company do not want that, they have fought long and hard to essentially run the show. They do not believe anybody shoud get to power unless they are willing to kiss their ring. I noticed on TV the other day that the attorney general of Florida was supporting Romney. Later the story came out that she already has a position in a Romney presidency as a health-care official...Every time the complain of Newt, I like him better.

  • Dagny

    Newt Gingrich doesn't need anyone to air his dirty laundry. He does alright by himself. Just look at his liberal voting record. He is not a conservative and we do not need Romney to tell us that. But, at least someone has the courage to put the truth out there. All three, Romney, Newt and Santorum will continue the Obama policies, very little will change because they are not conservatives. Romney, Newt and Santorum are all neo-conservatives and they will destroy our country. Neo-conservatives lean to the left and they will give us more government, more spending, more taxes, cap and trade, globalization, internet censorship, more government intrusion into our lives, more wars and conflicts, etc., etc. Santorum was voted one out of three most corrupt senators in 2006, he will silence the internet and expand government, while shredding the 10th amendment. True conservatism was founded on libertarian principles of constitutionally limited government, non interventionism, free markets, etc. and the neo-conservatives that have co-opted the GOP and the grassroots will destroy this country, and our constitution if we continue to vote as expected. You need to wake up soon, because time is running out. RON PAUL 2012!

  • AlleyOops75

    The attacks on Newt by the GOP establishment & the Super PACS started in Iowa, let up a bit in NH because Romney was a next door 'favorite son'...The attacks picked up again in South Carolina but Newt murdered Romney so bad in the two SC debates that the South Carolinian had little choice but to give the state to Newt in a land slide..On to FL where Romney's Super PAC and the GOP establishment had been campaigning for over seven years; And with Newt with only a modest amount of money to fight back, these vultures began their vicious attacks on Newt all over again...Should Romney get the nomination you can bet your last confederate dollar on the outcome in November...

    • AlleyOops75

      The dems will roast Romney so badly that it will make the attacks by Romney's Super PAC & the GOP establishment attacks look like a Saturday afternoon picnic in the city park. The endorsement of Romney by John McPain, er, ah, John McCain should show us all that the same ole tired establishment GOPers are out to dupe us once again into voting for the guy that feels it's necessary to stash his cash away in Swiss Banks & directs his investment portfolio to the Cayman Islands so that they can't be traced. William Buckley, the founder of the Weekly Standard, would flip in his grave if he knew what his successors are advocating, the nomination of Willard Romney to be the standard bearer of the Grand Old Party in 2012....

      • AlleyOops75

        ....Romney has never gone without a meal, a job and most likely never had to finance a car...Willard was born into privilege..his father was CEO of American Motors and resigned that position just before the company declared bankruptcy and then became the governor of MI...Romney went to the finest private prep schools, went to college at Brigham Young, a Mormon sponsored school & then on to Obama's school, Harvard University...I'm not a believer in the 99% VS the 1%. For those of you who are believers in the 99 VS the 1...well, Romney fits in the top .006% of the country when it comes to wealth...How can someone who was governor of perhaps the most liberal state in the country, MA, possibly relate to those of us who had to rely on a pay check every two weeks to survive? The answer is that he can't.

  • Sam

    Newt behaves like an angry democrat. Trashes anyonre who disagress with him and changes his position depending on the time of day. No use trying to deny his mercurial behavior, it is now and has always been his problem. He is an intelligent man with some great ideas, but as Sen Dole said, "he has a new idea every 5 minutes." When the campaign began, he promised to behave and stick to the problems at hand. He has not done that. His personal and polilical records are a real problem and the democrats will eat him alive, if he should be chosen to run agaginst Obama.

    • AlleyOops75

      Senator Dole, Senator Dole the same Dole that lost an election to Clinton in a landslide...the same yawner that was the GOP head of the senate..another moderate republican who was almost as weak a candidate as John McPain, er, ah McCain...If I were running for public office at the national level, I think I'd whisper in the ears of McPain & Dole and tell them while I appreciate their support, please don't make your support of me public.

  • Carol

    I guess one would have to understand there are two sides to Reagan. One side pulled off a major amnesty I heard. One which the republicans never openly discuss. Something that enrages most legal immigrants. Thats the open border side playing with globalist ideas. The other side the actor, the one the republicans hold up as their mascott as though everything he did was just wonderful. They are the same as the left, using people as poster children with poster issues, but you never get the full truth. Of course Newt loves Reagan......the amnesty side. The sides the republicans hide.

    • AlleyOops75

      Reagan saved this country from an all out war with the Soviet Union...When Reagan asked Nikita Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin wall, the ole guard establishment GOP cringed for fear that the Russians would take that statement as a confrontation with the Soviets...As it turned out, a very short time later that wall came tumbling down....so much for not being a Jimmy Carter when it comes to foreign affairs.

  • Joyceann

    Yes Santorum is a nice boy - yes he seems trustworthy and yes I don't need agree with EVERY point a candidate has....but Obama would eat him alive. The only one that can stand next to Obama and know more about congress and government and how things really work than Obama - after all he doesn't even spend much time there - is Newt. His phenomenal memory and more intelligence and skills will garner us a better effort in influencing the independant - those not satisfied with the left and our great amount of unofficial "citizen latino's" and illegals here through 3 generations - and the black Americans are also waking up to being used by the left and not to their good. O has gotta GO and NEWT will give him the BOOT.

    • AlleyOops75

      Bravo, Joyceann.

  • OBAMA HATER 4 SURE

    Rick Santorum is running out of money to stay in this fight, he will be gone soon and then there well be 3, well really 2 and a half because Ron Pauls brain is only 1/2 working. I like somethings he stands for but his view of the overall world is extremely blinded.
    If he were elected to the position of POTUS he wouldn't even live out his first quarter term in office, heck the secret service would probably take him out of the picture just to do the country a favor.
    It makes no difference which one of the remaining candidates gets elected to represent the GOP they won't win, because OBUMMER has his minions poised and ready to stuff the ballot boxes again just like they did in 2008. If you don't believe me just go and look back at the New Hampshire vote record and see how many DEAD PEOPLE just voted in the Primary.

  • OBAMA HATER 4 SURE

    By my search for information on this subject it was in excess of 900 and they all voted for good OL Mitt, this proves to me that the democraps are running a test of the voting system in all states just to see how many they can get to pass the voter rolls and cast a ballot so they have some idea how many fraud voters they will need in each district to be able to stuff the ballot box again in 2012 if we even have an electionwhich I thing is going to be called off because OBUMMER is going to call it off after the riots by the occupy groups get started in October.
    I guess we will all have to wait and see if I'm correct or not, anybody betting with me, we might make a lot of money.

    I haven't read all the replies, but I'll make my own comment. What frightens me is that Republicans are beating up on each other so badly that Obama is going to walk away with this election and finish the change that he started - taking over America! I wanted to back Romney because I figured he'd be the best one to beat Obama. I still do - sort of. But because the candidates are trying take each other out there won't be anything left - but the left,. God help us.

    • AlleyOops75

      And just who was it that started all of this negative campaigning...In Iowa the Super PAC that is backing Romney spent millions to try and harm Gingrich and they were successful...Newt was leading in Iowa by a large margin when Romney's millions went to work in an effort to destroy him...they let up in NH because everyone had conceded that liberal state to Romney...The Super PAC went to work again in SC but Newt so out performed Willard in the debates that the NC voters went to Newt in a landslide..On to FL and Newt had been campaigning there since 2008...his Super PAC started all over again in distorting the facts with innuendos and half truths & the GOP ole guard establishment began to pile on even more. If we want someone to be the standard bearer for the GOP who has never wanted for anything and has the cash to buy the election...so be it.

      • AlleyOops75

        Should read and Romney had been campaigning there since 2008...sorry

  • http://ActionAmerica.org/ John Gaver

    I find it interesting that nobody is talking about the fact that Newt worked on the Nelson Rockefeller campaign, when the NY liberal was running against... wait for it... Ronald Reagan. Very few Republicans have ever been to the left of Rockefeller. But Newt worked on his campaign, over that of Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, both of whom were far to the right of Rockefeller. What does this tell you about Newt's real positions?

    Newt only came around to supporting Reagan, when it became obvious that Reagan could provide him a stepping stone to the presidency, himself. Newt has played the political game well. But to him, it really is, only a game.

    • AlleyOops75

      A link regarding your assertion will be appreciated by all of us...a link that shows that Newt was a big supporter of Nelson...BTW, most of the ole guard GOP establishment also supported Rockefeller over Reagan.

    I believe that Obama is a fraud president I saw a UTUBE video sometime ago. It was a picture of Obama talking to a small class of small children, this was when he was State senator for the state of ILL. I heard him say with his own mouth that he was born in Kenya, South Africa, and not in the United States of America. He said he was proud of this fact

    I tried to retrieve this video the other day but found out it is gone now. I wonder who could have done that.

If Romney is elected, the it's business as usual in DC, don't rock the boat, play nice and don't really stir up any messes. THAT'S why the RINOs don't want Newt in there, they can't control him, they fear he will actually force them thru their constituents to actually pursue real changes in DC.

    I want a man of caliber such as Mitt in the White House. Away with the liberal newspeople. Mitt doesn't sound like a liberal to me.

    • Sashamanda

      The attack started in Iowa by Romney.
      Nancy Reagan said her husband handed the flame to Newt, and I believe her. I'm old enough to remember Newt defending Reagan and his agenda against all comers.
      Presumably, you want Romney for his integrity? What kind of integrity allowed Romney to knowingly lie about Newt's ethics charges, fines, and being forced to resign? Romney is a character assissin.
      And, if you think he is conservative, please check his record in Mass.

      • AlleyOops75

        Well said, Sashamanda

    • AlleyOops75

      Dorothy, could it possibly be that you 'like' Romney's full head of hair with his Swiss & Caymen Islands bank accounts...Newt got a lot done for Ronald Reagan with four balanced budgets (none since) and a complete overhaul of the welfare system.

  • bob

    Romney is a democrat that will take over where Obummer leaves off!!!!!! Obummer has the press putting on these debates for his own standing on each. Romney was helped by the demo so he sounded more inteligent in debates , and i think Newt is there biggest fear for he knows the ins and outs.

  • Bruce D.

    Newt is the Republican establishment and Washington insider. Wake up! It is people like Newt that Reagan had to overcome to bring conservatism back from the dead. Reagan's own party was against him and only his strength of personality and ideals allowed him to get anything accomplished. Reagan was promised $3 in spending cuts for every dollar in tax increase but was betrayed. To criticize Reagan in defense of Newt makes this author part of the Republican establishment. Sarah Palin has been sucking up ever sense Newt put out the idea that she would be energy secretary under his presidency.

    • AlleyOops75

      It's people like Newt that got Reagan's agenda passed. Welfare reform & balanced budgets (none since) 7 of the eight years that Reagan was president resulted in more prosperity than this nation has experienced before or since...Let's stay with the facts, please.

      • Bruce D.

        If you want to stay with the facts welfare reform and the balanced budget was put through under the Carter administration and not Reagan's. A time when new conservatives came into the party to make real changes. They all say Newt stood in the way of those changes. You have been filled with propaganda. Newt is not who he claims to be.

        • Bruce D.

          Excuse me, I mean welfare reform and the balance budget was put through under the Clinton Administration.

    "Newt Gingrich is up against entrenched political forces who are absolutely trying to dictate who win the GOP nomination" ...Rev Wildman also has" expressed grave doubts" about "Romney's commitments to social issues that Christians care about. "Romney will not be reliable. Romney is Obama-lite"."The conservative family advocate said the stakes in the 2012 election are huge", he said, "if Mr. Obama gets a second term, or if Mr. Romney gets in, it's the end of Western civilization as we know it".

  • Jeff

    Republicans are completely devoid of common sense and the role of the Constitution. A president, despite all the whining posts decrying that Obama is a dictator, has limitations.. Many of the complaints I have read posted here are both laughable and sad. There is only so much a sitting president can do. Our government requires the actions of both the house and the senate to vote on legislation before a president can sign it into law.

    The US senate is where legislation goes to die. I know that Republicans will point their fingers at Harry Reed for the senates inaction.A The truth is, the problem is greater than Harry Reed. The senate does not function because of the Republican Party, and their use of the filibuster to prevent the passage of a budget. The Republicans have used the filibuster at unprecedented levels since 2009.

    These are ugly little facts.

    This is what happens when a country is adrift with no moral compass to set the course. Right now we are in such social chaos that sophomoric behavior becomes the norm and when that happens, we are doomed. At least until things get so bad that the pendulum swings back in the other direction. Nothing new, of course, if you follow history. But it is tragic because when we don't learn from history, we will repeat it. Remember ancient Rome?

    This is pure nonsense! I have seen Video's of Newt Gingrich denigrating the Foreign Policy of President Reagan! I have also seen video's on YouTube of Newt Gingrich describing himself as a "Wilsonian Progressive." That's enough for me! The man is an immoral Gasbag and a loose cannon who has no place in our nation's highest office. He would be the LAST person in the world I would vote for.

    Mitt Romney for President - 2012

  • Plt Sergeant Chee

    Neither George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Patrick Henry,
    Abe Lincoln or Newt Gingrich were accused of being sinless; but rather successful.
    Newt is actually intelligent and has what it takes to LEAD those citizens interested
    in the healing of America. Newt is a visionary in the mold of American legends who
    lead America through the darkest of times.
    If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face,
    and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.

  • liberalslie

    Is this any different than Newt Gingrich railing against Capitalism & using class warfare against Romney? Newt seems to have a LOT in common with Barack ObaMAO. He exploited the made up, global warming hysteria to line his pockets, just like ObaMAO, he wants to give amnesty to ILLEGAL aliens, REWARDING them for their criminal behavior & giving them entitlements paid for by U.S. TAXPAYERS, he is an elitist & becomes angry if questioned by a "common" citizen, his class warfare rhetoric rivals ObaMAO,s & he has said numerous times how much he admired Clinton, which with Newts moral character is not surprising. Face it, you rejected the REAL CONSERVATIVE in this race & that was Michele Bachmann. Now you have two lousy candidates & it really doesn't matter which is elected, they stand for the same old, Washington as usual, spend, spend, spend government.

    Why do you MORONS give negative feedback when faced with the truth? Are you STUPID? Do you REALLY think that Newt & Romney are small government candidates & if so, WHY? Have you bothered to do any RESEARCH & look at their records? Any Republican or conservative is going to vote for the chosen candidate because other than Hi tler there is no one worse than ObaMAO. That having been said LYING to yourself is not going to make your candidate or country better.

It is this very kind of thinking that has gotten us a 5% approval rating in Congress because both parties are so busy digging their heels in the sand , they are not willing to work together and do what is best for the country ! They are too busy trying to do what is best for their individual parties! And don't tell me what a strong leader Boehner is! He is doing a lousy job and practically all of them need to be replaced! Let's start with term limits for McCann, Hatch, Reid, Pelosi, and anyone who has been there more then 3 terms! We need a transfusion of new fresh blood, ideas and ways to work together for the American people who are paying their salaries.Thank God, Newt believes in term limits!

    I agree with you, Chief, that Newt is the answer to our problems and the leader we need! Harry Reid needs to go! He is a vindictive, petty little man and out for himself. And you are right again when you say the left goes running to the media when they have a complaint or don't get their way. However, if we had "TOUGHER THAN NAILS" individuals in Congress like Hewt than we would not be intimidated by the petty ,little losers like Reid or Pelosi! This is like the tail wagging the dog! Who's driving here- CONGRESS or THE MEDIA? Who gives a rat's ass what they think? That;s why we need more thick skinned individuals in Congress...

    The truth is that the GOP wants another wimp/progressive RINO like the one they shoved down our throats last time around.....a complete and total failure because he acted like a limp wrist fag from San Francisco and let Obama and the Dems walk all over him.....McCain a hero? All he showed me was that he could take a really good butt whippin'. And here we go again getting ANOTHER RINO shoved down our throats with subtle threats and character smears on the other candidates. IMHO, the GOP needs to be disbanded and reconstituted with real people that are actually in touch with conservatives. The GOP bozos we have now are "useful idiots" for the left. They play into the left's hand with their ongoing stupidity all the time now.....it's pitiful!

One thing is for certain,,, this fool we have now has got to be thrown out by his large ears.... He's no leader.... just a sorry excuse of leadership.. and a liar..... Bye Obama 2012.!!!!!!!!!

    • GoodDay

      MITT - is "painful" to watch because he stammers, stutters, and hesitates before selecting his point of view for the day. To me, he comes across as a "people pleaser" eager to go along. I expect him to say "si, si" any moment.
      NEWT - expresses his ideas easily in a captivating way and gives great illustrations from his vast knowledge of history. (He has made me renew my knowledge of past US presidents.)
      SANTORUM - speeches are booooring. I try hard but my mind wanders off the screen. Too much pressure on his vocal cords or something...
      RON - offers one-liners in whining and complaining ways. He seldom offer realistic solutions to problems. Knowing he is short in his comments he has my attention.
      OBAMA - lack sincere warmth and therefore comes across as a cool and calculating politician who knows inside he doesn't have any honest positives to offer.

  • Mark R. Holcomb

    Newt Gingrich backed the 1989 assault weapons ban, this after he had ran as a conservative in 1988. As such, he should resign

    The truth of the matter is is that the Evangelicals and their cause, the GOP and its cause, are not doing themselves a favor by supporting Newt. Forgiveness requires humility, does Newt display this quality? Answer this honestly. Forgiveness comes with Penance, and it is Newt's Penance to be denied this nomination. If he really was a new man he would walk away before his dirty laundry becomes the dirty laundery of all those he claims to be speaking for. From what I see, he is a shrewd and calculating politician who is counting on the "Anybody but Obama" mentality to see his candidacy through. That makes him a scoundrel in my book, not a repentant sinner. But, go ahead and support him. Go ahead and defend him. Go ahead and send him money. Go ahead and send your sons and daughters to fight in the wars he advocates. I'm sure he will thank you all. But as for me, he will get nothing from me!

    Read Newt's Book written in 2008 - "A CONTRACT WITH THE EARTH". It is much more damaging than his commericial on the couch with Miss Nancy!! It sounds like it was written by AL GORE!!! It is all about ONE WORLD ORDER and the hoax of ENVIRONMENTAL GLOBALISM!!! Read just the first 30 pages and it will scare the heck out of any conservative!! Newt states it is up to America to take the lead on Global Warming for the entire World! He goes step by step, describing BIG, FAT BLOATED GOVERNMENT PLANS TO CONTROL GLOBAL WARMING!! For God's Sake.....when are people going to wake up?? No one paid attention to Obama's book, which told us who he was....why isn't anyone vetting Newt with his own words, from his own book?? Get this book exposed before it too late and the Democrats do it for us in the fall!!!

  • wisdomisbliss

    In a sea of (500+) comments, let's see if this one gets noticed.
    Political party affiliations have become doublespeak!
    Republicans have become RINOs and assumed to be in favor of the 'rich';
    Democrats have been taken over by the 'shadow government' of Socia1-ists and Union interests, though assumed to be in favor of the working man.
    Libertarians are, well, for individual liberty.
    Why don't we change the names, to bring them in line with their ideaologies?
    Preferred labels would be Conservative, Moderate (lukewarm), Liberal, Progressive/Socia1-ist etc.
    I, for one, would prefer to vote according to my conscience (Conservative), rather than political party. That way, there's no doubt of whether my 'party's choice' will follow through on their 'promises', once they take control, power and authority over me and my fellow Americans!
    Could we not also require the new leader(s) to sign a binding contract to stand by their representations as a condition of taking office? Hope and change for the working people became a systematic rap e of our copuntry; transparency became back-room deals for monetary gain for sup[porters, etc.

  • Patrioticnut

    The attacks from the present republicans in power make me want to vote for Newt all the more. I think the reason they are so against him, and were when he was speaker, is because he was and will take their power away and return it to the people. I know over the last few years I have heard some of the things Newt was promoting and I agreed with all of them. One of the most recent and loudest was the "Drill here drill now" campaign he was running. Can't argue with the all of the above strategy, Even Obama has adopted that in his stou address, even if he is lying again, he said it to garner votes.

  • JH Midwest

    This will be the most important election since the Civil War. Contrary to what the establishment and the mainstream media including the left wants you to believe, it is Newt whom they really fear. The SOTU message has clearly defined what the left will use as its 2012 campaign...a villification of achievement, success and class warfare. Romney will clearly be the perfect candidate the left REALLY wants because he represents the !% the left wants to villify. With his annual income (as reported) of $57,000 dollars a day ( which is more than the average national annual household income) the left will sharply cause more division, while growing the recipient class in our nation. How many recipient class voters want to vote away their benefits or job? Gingrich will shred Obama in any debate without the use of a telepromptor. Needless to say, we are providing plenty of fodder to the left while destroying ourselves. We must unify behind one candidate and defeat Obama and I believe that of the four, Newt is the one for the task at hand.

I thought we should vote in the primary for the best candidate whom we thought could win over the Obamanite, but the republican elite ( Karl Rogue, Ann Coulter, Peggy Noonan,etc. have declared war not on Obama, but on conservative tea party type indiviiduals who believe in real conservatism. I fthink that whoever wins the nomination in the Republican party should be the one that we unite behind, and vote out the marxist in November. Please stop the hatred of Newt and his supporters.

    Why not Newt's lies about Romney. He has been calling Romney a Mass. moderate without backing it up but today on Fox he called Romney a liberal. In Florida he was saying Romeny is against immigration instead of saying illegal immigration. Sen. Marco Rubio called him on this. He keeps saying Romneycare is the same as Ocare which is absolutely not true. He says things without backing them up. He claims to be a great debater but has not done well in the last 2 debates. Romney clearly defeated him in the last debate. O will not want to have many debates anyway. Newt scares me.....he does not have control of himself....he cannot take criticism. We have to defeat O but I am afraid Newt would impode. Romney is sure and has done well in fending of these attacks by Newt so he would be better at keeping his cool and fending off attacks from O.

  • rjh25

    Now it all makes sense, sort of.

    The Republican establishm­ent isn't exactly behind Romney. However, it seems they are hedging their bets. They realize Obama will be a strong contender in the fall. It's best to have a candidate go against Obama where the losses are minimum then catastroph­ic. Meaning, Romney might not win his bid for the White House, but would save the GOP seats in the House should he lose. However, a Gingrich run could possibly mean losing both the White House and the House.

    That all being said, I still wonder what the heck did Gingrich do or not do to ultra-cons­ervative Ann Coulter, Tom Delay and Bob Dole. Dole has been off the scene forever. At one point he was the front man for Viagra.

    In my lifetime, this has been one of the nastiest primary elections ever. I hate to imagine what the general will look like. And the US looks down on the election process of other countries. Perhaps we are no better?

    For every one.

    Here is the scoop on Newt. The lead article leaves out a lot.

    Gingrich: http://www.newswithviews.com/Nelson/kelleigh121.h...

    Quote from Newt's mentor's new age book, The Third Wave. From P2 of above link.

    " Toffler believes mankind is entering a new system. To the founding fathers in his book, he wrote, "For the system of government you fashioned including the very principles on which you based it, is increasingly obsolete, and hence increasingly, if inadvertently, oppressive and dangerous to our welfare. It must be radically changed and a new system of government invented, a democracy for the 21st century. For this wisdom, above all, I thank Mr. Jefferson who helped create the system that served us so well for so long, and that now must, in its turn, die and be replaced." " [End]
