    In Response to Newt Gingrich:
    In addition to taking 30k a month from freddie Mac, now there is a commercial surfacing with newt and Nancy pelosi. The two agree that climate change is a real issue and must be addressed. Once again, it is hard to tell the difference between liberals and conservatives, especially when a buck can be made.

    1) I'm still wondering what you have against Freddie Mac? 2) the Pelosi ad is old news and is something that Gingrich has publicly renounced. I guess we can't expect our leaders to be right all the time. In the case of Obama, once in a while would be nice.

    Ann Coulter:

    "Although Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- the institutions most responsible for the nation's current financial crisis -- were almost entirely Democratic cash cows, they managed to dirty up enough Republicans to make it seem like bipartisan corruption.

    "Democrats sucked hundreds of millions of dollars out of these institutions: Franklin Raines (close advisor to Obama), $90 million; Jamie Gorelick, $26.4 million; Jim Johnson, $20 million.

    By contrast, Republicans came cheap. For the amazingly good price of only $300,000 apiece, Fannie and Freddie bought the good will of former Reps. Vin Weber, R-Minn., Susan Molinari, R-N.Y., and Newt Gingrich, R-Ga.* Former Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, R-N.Y., was even cheaper at $240,000.

    [*Correction: After Gingrich admitted last week to receiving $300,000 from Freddie, we found out this week that it was actually closer to $1.6 million.]

    He did. Of course it's awful hard to find a politician that hasn't flip-flopped at one point or another. Even Obama has flip-flopped on just about every campaign promise that he made. Or was that lying? It's so hard to tell.

    It's good to see Newt getting attacked because it only means he's climbing in the polls!!
    Newt will destroy any other candidate D or R in a policy debate.

    They all have skeletons D and R so, what should we do harp on their past personal decisions we don't like or listen to their views on where the country should be headed???

    In Response to Re: Newt Gingrich:
    sk8ter no way newt destroys anyone.  The reason he climbed was due to the soft ball questions. No way a guy who has been divorced as many times as newt, has a chance.  Americans don't like their politicans to be in debt.  I can go on forever, the bottom line is:  don't bet the house on newt, you will lose. Newt does well in a round table discussion, but stinks when the questions are being peppered at him.  Now he has bachman attacking him, and doing a nice job in the process.

    I respect your opinion. Time will tell. If we as a nation are more concerned with a candidates past personal faults then shouldn't they have held it against the admitted user of cocaine? They didn't because it was never harped as a big deal. I agree Newt will get lambasted by the media on those matters but, he will either be prepared or not.

    Given the options:  A hapless socialist, a boy scout who wants "President" on his resume, Newt is looking like the obvious choice.  He is decisive, he has a plan, and he is intolerant of fools.  Kinda the anti-Obama.

    NASHUA, N.H. — Newt Gingrich has made his refusal to launch negative attacks on his GOP rivals a point of pride, but he didn't hesitate to lay out why he thinks he's a superior candidate at a speech here Monday morning.

    Channeling the oft-repeated comments of what Republican primary voters say they like about him, Gingrich held up his experience and debate skills to contrast himself with the other Republican hopefuls.

    "If you stop and ask yourself: it's October of 2012, President Obama is spending $1 billion beating up the Republican candidate [and] you get to the debates, who do you want to have debate Obama to draw clarity between the various lies they will be telling and the truth?" he asked. "I think most people end up thinking I'm probably a better debater than my friends are."

    To that, Gingrich got a loud ovation from the crowd of about 100 students and businesspeople.

    Gingrich, speaking at Rivier College, had been asked by a student for "the one thing" that separates him from his Republican opponents. He listed three.

    "The scale of the solutions that I propose — which are much bigger and much more comprehensive than any other person running for office," he said.

    And, he added, there is his experience.

    "I've actually done it," Gingrich said. "I'm the only person running this year who has actually helped create a national majority twice, in 1980 and 1994" (Gingrich was reelected to the House in 1980, but it's not clear whether he was claiming a share of credit for Reagan's victory, Senate Republicans winning a majority or both).

    Of his record as House speaker, Gingrich rattled off a list of accomplishments.

    "I passed entitlement reform, welfare, I passed a second reform, Medicare, which was done so well nobody noticed it," he boasted. "AARP was for it, the Democrats didn't oppose it."

    Gingrich also noted his pushing through a series of balanced budgets.

    "Nobody else running comes anywhere close to that," he said.

    Re: Newt Gingrich

    This really could be interesting if Newt gets the Republican nomination.  The debate format, whether in the primaries or general election is stale and stifling.

    A Lincoln/Douglas debate format which Newt has proposed would be fascinating and give each side a forum to fully present their ideas.  The winner?  The American electorate of course.

    In Response to Re: Newt Gingrich:
    Gingrich is the only Speaker of the House to have been disciplined for ethics violations. Speaking about his resignation from the HoR: MR. GINGRICH -- I'm willing to lead but I'm not willing to preside over people who are cannibals.... I spent 40 years of my life getting us here. The idea that I would be the excuse to cannibalize the majority is so sickening I couldn't risk it. You have many good candidates. Have the loyalty of the entire 223 or it will not work.

    Newt was the only one disciplined? Ever hear of Jim Wright?  Speaker of the House?

    Try relying on facts instead of that ideological ignorance you are so fond of.

    Yep.  Once again, running away from the facts, airhead.  Wright resigned just prior to being disciplined, so I guess you got me on the thinnest of technicalities.
    Pelosi should be disciplined, other than being stupid, insider trading is a crime.  Just because the politicians say they can't be prosecuted makes no difference, still a crime.
