What’s up with people endorsing Gingrich?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Herman Cain has officially come out and supported the Gingrich campaign while Sarah Palin has come out with some recent statements that seem to indicate the former Alaska governor is indeed supporting Newt (plus the circumstantial evidence that Todd Palin came out for Newt). Rick Perry also endorsed the plump progressive who has a fondness for notorious early 20th century progressives. What gives?

“I am increasingly dismayed, confused by the endorsements that are going from supposed small government people and Tea Party people,” Glenn said.

“Herman Cain said he’s looking for somebody on the outside looking for small government guy and he’s endorsing somebody who voted for the Department of Education.”

Joining Cain in support of Newt is Sarah Palin, who has not done a full fledged endorsement but has certainly been vocal in her support.

“Well look at the players in the establishment who are fighting so hard against him,” she said. “They want to crucify him because he has tapped into that average everyday American Tea Party grassroots movement that has said ‘enough is enough of the establishment.’”

Glenn said, “I don’t understand this. If you are playing the game of he’s the only guy to win, explain the polls.  I’m sorry, if you look at the negatives, he’s more polarized than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.”

Why are none of these small government people coming out in support of Rick Santorum, a man with actual conservative credentials?

“I know where Rick Santorum stands on the progressive era. I know where he is on things and Rick’s not going to consider himself a progressive,” Glenn explains.

Stu said that the media has essentially turned this into a two man race and as a result those who are solely focused on beating Obama are not looking at Santorum as a viable candidate.

“I believe we have allowed others to define this thing for us,” Stu added.

“I’m pretty sure that Herman Cain doesn’t really know what progressivism is. He doesn’t have any idea. Sarah Palin, she does,” Glenn said.

Does it say something about the character of Gingrich’s supporters that they would seemingly abandon their conservative values to support Gingrich, a man who has been vocal in his support of progressives and their philosophy? It will be interesting to watch them over the next few weeks and months to see where they all end up.

Back in December when rumors first swirled that Cain would endorse Gingrich, Glenn warned “It will be interesting to see Herman’s life from here. Where does Herman go?”

“Let’s just watch the money and power trail from here. Important to watch it.”

Keep an eye on what happens next to see where all the Gingrich supporters end up – it might hold the answers that Glenn was looking for on radio today.

    “It cannot be said that Beck hasn’t learned a thing or two from his
    opposition. In Jaw dropping displays of friendly fire, he has pummeled
    his own audience, and the Tea Party in general, with relentless
    Alinskyite tactics. He has mastered the art of the out-of-context
    sound bite, using Media Matters techniques to create a profound rift in
    the Conservative movement. Accusations of racism, ignorance, and most
    recently, anti-Mormon bigotry have erupted from the radio in a stream
    of marginalizing rhetoric that even the likes of Barack Obama should
    find impressive. How ironic that a man who has railed so heavily
    against Progressive’s use Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals should show
    himself to be a master practitioner of the craft.”

    Tony,

    At least try to make an argument.  Beck is simply “bashing” Newt with Newt’s own words.  Is everybody just supposed to ignore the things Newt himself has said and done over the years because it is unflattering to Newt?  Everyone of these GOP candidates have their blemishes and baggage.  Getting mad at the facts doen’t change them.  Like it or not, Newt cannot praise as heroes Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and FDR and not be a Big Government Progressive.  He may be a Big Government Progressive with a conservative twist, but he is a Big Government Progressive nonetheless.

    Romney may not be the perfect candidate, but at least he is a Free Market Capitalist.  We conservatives used to admire those who found success without feeding from the government trough.

    Look, if you guys don’t like what Glenn is saying about Gingrich then why do you continue to get onto his site and listen to him?  Especially when you read the title of the article.  You know how he feels about Gingrich, he’s explained why he feels that way, so what’s the problem?  Just because you like Gingrich for some reason doesn’t mean Glenn is discredited in some way.
    Please, go vote for Gingrich.  At this point I don’t care anymore and I think our country has been led so far into ignorance that we’re not going to make the right decision and save our country.
    I’ll prepare myself and patiently wait to help rebuild it afterwards…

    What discredits Glenn is his misleading use of sound bites and his unwillingness to allow anyone to actually discuss the governing records of the candidates on the air.  It would be one thing if he was arguing based on honest issues, but taking these clips out of context and refusing to look at the entire picture is not honest.

    Media Matters uses Glenn’s own words against him…I guess they aren’t bashing either.  I guess he really is a racist.  I guess he really is an antisemite.  Because in the 20 second clip I saw of Glenn IN HIS OWN WORDS, he says things that are clearly racist.

    See how that argument doesn’t work?

    NEWT GINGRICH – IDEOLOGY FLIP FLOP OR COMPROMISED PRINCIPLES 
    In the April 24, 2007 interview with Gingrich, the former House Speaker had the following praise for Freddie Mac and the whole GSE (Government-Sponsored Enterprise) concept:
     
    “I think a GSE for space exploration ought to be seriously considered — I’m convinced that if NASA were a GSE, we probably would be on Mars today.
    Certainly there is a lot of debate today about the housing GSEs, but I think it is telling that there is strong bipartisan support for maintaining the GSE model in housing. There is not much support for the idea of removing the GSE charters from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. And I think it’s clear why. The housing GSEs have made an important contribution to homeownership and the housing finance system. We have a much more liquid and stable housing finance system than we would have without the GSEs. And making homeownership more accessible and affordable is a policy goal I believe conservatives should embrace. Millions of people have entered the middle class through building wealth in their homes, and there is a lot of evidence that homeownership contributes to stable families and communities.  These are results I think conservatives should embrace and want to extend as widely as possible.”
     
    http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/10021-gingrichs-freddie-mac-contradictions-just-got-worse
     
     
    Back in 2007, the Freddie Mac moderator noted of Gingrich’s pro-Freddie Mac and pro-GSE views that “this is not a point of view one normally associates with conservatives.” Gingrich replied:
     
    “Well, it’s not a point of view libertarians would embrace. But I am more in the Alexander Hamilton-Teddy Roosevelt tradition of conservatism. I recognize that there are times when you need government to help spur private enterprise and economic development. Look at our own history. The government provided railroad land grants to encourage widespread adoption of what was then the most modern form of transportation to help develop our country.”

    “Whatever your stance on Newt Gingrich, one thing is clear, Beck stands
    in opposition to every other talk radio host of merit on the air.
    Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin have all defended Gingrich against attacks
    from the establishment/Romney machine while Beck perpetuates
    them…regardless of their accuracy. That is not to say that Beck is
    pro-Romney, but it is to say that Beck is decidedly anti-Gingrich, and
    that his positions are bound up in an emotional part of Beck’s make-up,
    rather than a rational policy based place. Such a thing is hard to
    deny as we repeatedly watch Glenn Beck turn on his supporters and bite
    the hand that feeds him.”

    Dear Mr. West When I consider the past and current positions on the issues of the current slate of RINO candidates vying for President of the United States … it would appear that those with a right wing liberal ideology have taken over the Republican Party … a right wing liberal ideology that does not have a place within the now Marxist Democrat Party.  Why you or Sarah Palin … captial C Conservatives … would align yourselves with any of these candidates prior to the Presidential race against Barack Obama is beyond my understanding.  Mr. West … why you have not entered the race is also beyond my understanding.  I am becoming very frustrated with someone … who I perceive as a great Stateman … for standing on the beach while possessing all the skills to save a drowing America.

Glenn you state anyone in the Tea Party that likes Newt as s as well as teasing your callers as people who “just” don’t understand. He states in one of his clips he has to explain to his casual fans why we don’t understand why he has this view. Glenn you can have a viewpoint others can have another view.

    The fix is in, based on hatred for Romney. Believe it or not but the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) wants Gingrich and not Santorum.  Gngrich will be easier to control.  The RCC hates the Mormons, they always have.  If Romney gets to be president and salves the financial mess we are in.  He will be President for 8 years.  The RCC does not want this.  They want the demise of America.

    Romney completely represents the old guard republican party. He is Obamalite. At this stage it is not about Newt beating Obama… it is about Romney not getting what the government/media complex wants, and that is the nomination for the Republican party. Choosing Romney is asking for impotence and a one term republican. Newt was instrumental in creating the contract with America and delivering on it. I have no reason to believe he will not deliver on the promises he has made thus far. For me… it is first no Romney. From there I think we should worry about Obama.

    You don’t actually listen to the show do you? Glenn has played many examples of Newt saying he is a progressive. Newt called himself a “Theodore Roosevelt La Follette Progressive tradition” and while both of them were Republicans, they were not exactly Conservative. Glenn is a Libertarian and believes government should be small. Progressives live for expansion of government to “improve” the lives of the people by controlling how they behave. All I needed to see from Newt was his failure to adhere to the contract with America and see him touting Global Warming with Nancy Pelosi when global warming was in fashion to understand how he operates. If you believe that Teddy Roosevelt was a great President that did great things for America, go ahead and vote for Newt.

    Not saying that Levin is wrong. Listen to him every night as well. Just saying that you take everything into account and there are some actions that Newt has taken that don’t add up to being a Conservative. What he did with the contract for America was great, but it didn’t last very long did it. Did he deserve to be run out of Congress, I don’t think so, Mark has proven that point to me as well. I just don’t look at him as the most conservative guy on the stage. I believe that Newt will bend to the whims of the pressure he will receive from the mainstream press instead of standing strong and making the changes we need. I think his ideas for tax reform are great, and I think that he wants to be the President we need, I just don’t think he can be. I don’t care how great a debater he is, he is not the cult of personality that Obama is and has enough baggage for the press to tear him down worse than you believe Glenn is. If you think this is unfair, what do you think you will see in the general election?

    DavidG: you’re joking, right?  Most people on here are too young to remember the disaster that was/is Newt Gingrich.  His position was whatever was opposed to that of the president.  He’s conservative when the policies coming down are liberal and liberal when they were conservative.  He’s a narcissist of the worst sort.  He shows it in the disgusting way he treated his wives and his recent anti capitalism attacks on Romney.  In some sense, your quoted statement is correct since Santorum spent most of his service in the Senate and Romney was never in congress.  Ron Paul is far better than Newt and, in my humble opinion, has done
    more to further conservative ideals than Progressive Gingrich.  Newt is the liberal choice for the nomination because they know they can beat him.  That’s why the media has done more negative pieces on Romney (by far).  http://www.cmpa.com/media_room_press_1_18_12.html  Romney’s got the best shot, so they puff up Newt who has no chance in a general election and trash Romney.  Newt is and has always been a progressive–the evidence is overwhelming.  Newt has been shown to have told the most lies so far in the contest (again, by far).  When he gets “fact checked” the red ink is sickening.  It seems to me that the real reason the South doesn’t support Romney is that he’s a Mormon–the rest of the reasons quoted don’t hold water.  They’re looking for a way to make their actual objection to his faith seem reasonable and not based on ignorant prejudice so they jump on the useful idiot bandwagon of Newt Gingrich (and the liberal media).  We have plenty of conservatives elsewhere in the country, we just don’t associate being conservative with being a religious bigot.  Fine, so you don’t like Romney?  Santorum is the better choice anyway and is a lot more electable in the general election.   You should look there instead of the liar chameleon (Newt) :-)

    Trish,  It is very comforting to read a post on one of these blogs that in coherent and intelligent.  Remember though, Beck is a business man and some day in the future he may be remembered as one of the greatest entrepreneurer of our times.  Look how far Glenn as come in the past four years.  Glenn is clovering his bases. If Newt gets the nomination, defeats Obama and is a great president I am sure that Beck will have soound clips that support his prophecy.  Likewise, if the opposite occurs there will be material for that as well.  One must take all that is said on radio ( both coservative and progressive)  and place that in the mouth swrirl it around and spit it out. The little bit of taste that is left is the only part that is worth swallowing anyways.

    Romney is not a free market capitalist at all.  While Newt has been speaking out against the Fed for the past year and wants to reign it in, Romney wants to keep it intact.  As you know the Fed distorts the markets, so no market is free market with this central bank dictating money supply, interest rates, and regulations.

    Also, Romney and Bain made their money mainly from tax loopholes and governemnt subsidies – that is also anti-capitalist.  Certainly, Goldman Sachs knows Romney would never change anything, hence are funding his camaign.

    Romney drew first blood in New Hampshire.  Newt wanted a clean campaign without the dirt and smears.  Was he not supposed to defend himself at all?  Who are you people?  “Dough Boy”?  How moronic to call people names.  Newt is very smart, and I would venture to guess, he’s a lot smarter than you. 

    Wikipedia says:

    Abortion:  Romney declined to sign a pro-life pledge for 2012 presidential candidates sponsored by the Susan B. Anthony List by which signers pledge to push legislation to end all taxpayer funding of abortion and to sign a law to “protect unborn children who are capable of feeling pain from abortion.” The pledge also commits signers to nominate judges and appoint executive branch officials who are pro-life. Romney’s spokeswoman said the pledge could have “unforeseen consequences” and that Romney could not “in good conscience sign it.”

    When he supported the Brady Bill in 1994, Romney said, “That’s not going to make me the hero of the NRA. I don’t line up with the NRA.”[Just before declaring his candidacy for the 2008 Republican nomination for president, Romney joined the National Rifle Association (NRA).   In 2005, Romney declared the 31st anniversary of the Gun Owners’ Action League “Right to Bear Arms Day”.”

    Mitt goes with the flow.  He’s a huge hypocrite with lots of money to spread lies.  Please get the facts before you post your comments, please.

    The Republican Hierarchy, Ann Coulter, Fox News who have claimed to be “conservative” are not.  Ann Coulter has supported Chris Christie, who in turn supports Mitt Romney.  Chris Christy appointed a Muslim Judge this past summer to the Superior Court in NJ.  Chris Christy appointed an openly gay black man to the superior court in the past few weeks.  Is this a new type of conservativsm that looks a lot like the left, or am I just imaging things here/  You tell me.

    The MSM are minimizing Santorum in the media so as people don’t know or hear him as much , the MSM wants Romney and the people want anybody BUT Romney and so the only name we are hearing besides Romney is Gingrich ,  I like Santorum as a conservative much more than Romney AND Gingrich but his candidaccy is played down just as my first choice of RON PAUL is being minimized by claiming he is too radical . In my own opinion we NEED a radical to counteract the radical policies and executive orders passed by the most radical president in my 70 years of life , our current phoney in chief .

    I accidently “Liked” your post, thinking I was hitting reply. 

    You are so wrong about Newt.  Look at the record of Fox News, Ann Coulter who is in love wtih Chris Christy, who endorses Mitt Romney.    Chris Christy appointed a Superior court judge in New Jersey – a Muslim just this past summer.  He recently appointed an openly gay black judge to the superior court as well.  What type of conservatism is this?  They are not conservative, it’s just a label they plucked out of the air to get votes. 

    The Republican Hierarchy has a lot to do with this trashing of Newt.  He ruffles feathers!  So What?  That’s what I want!  Ruffled feathers.  Didn’t like Newt?  Who cares?  I know I don’t care if you like him or not.  The republican hierarchy has been in charge for way too long and I intend to vote for Newt.  In defiance!

    Let’s be real. Netiher Newt, Mitt or Rick are perfect conservatives.  But since you ask, let’s look at Newt’s voting record:

    - Nelson Rockefeller over Barry Goldwater? Not good, not conservative.
    - 1979 vote to create the Department of Education? Not good, not conservative.
    - 1980 adulterous affair and divorce? Not good not conservative.
    - 1987 co-sponsor of Fairness Doctrine? Not good, not conservative?
    - 1994 leader of Republican take over of congress?  Outstanding, conservative.
    - 1994 Contract with America? Outstanding, wonderful, thank you Newt.
    - 1994 A grade from Gun Owners of America? Good. 
    - 1996 Welfare Reform? Good job, largely conservative.
    - 1996 C- grade from Gun Owners of America?  Not so good.
    - 1997 Guilty of ethics violations?  Not good, and I hope that is not conservative.
    - 1993-2000 Adulterous affair #2 (at least that we know of), & 2nd divorce?  Not good, and certainly not conservative, and definately not a Family Values Conservative.  He probably needsto concede that one to Santorum and Romney.
    - Sitting on the counch with Pelosi to “fight global warming”? Not conservative.
    - Supported Cap and Trade legislation?  Not good, not conservative.
    - Playing the Class Warfare card (even if it is against Romney)? Not conservative, downright socialist.

    The establishment doesn’t like Romney???!!! Really Glenn? Who was it that was endorsed by John McCain and Bob Dole along with many other solid establishment politicians? I see the establishment defending Romney every day on Fox News and ripping Newt Gingrich. And now, none other than George Soros just said the other day that he’s not worried about Romney because Romney and Obama are exactly the same. It couldn’t be much worse unless Satan himself endorsed Mitt Romney. He also said that only conservative extremists like Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are different than Obama. Let’s see you explain or spin your way out of this one Glenn. It’s a little weird that Art Laffer, Robert McFarlane, Michael Reagan, many of the Tea Party supporters, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, and now Sarah Palin are all backing Gingrich. Are these people supporting Newt Gingrich all just stupid or what? I’m usually with Glenn on most things, but not on this one. I don’t know how he seems to be so blind to reality. What is it exactly that Mitt Romney has done for the conservative movement? At least Newt has balanced the budget, reformed welfare, has a solid record of suppporting lower taxes, etc. and, yes, he was a huge player in the Reagan revolution in the 80s says Art Laffer, Robert McFarlane, and Ed Rollins — all former Reagan administration officials. And, yes, Newt has praised progressive presidents, but so did Reagan. Reagan praised FDR many times, so I guess by your definition, Reagan was also a progressive.

    The TRUTH about Newt’s Ethics Charges …

    84 (politically motivated) ethics charges were filed against Newt (by the Democrats) when he was Speaker of the House regarding the use of tax exempt funds for a college course he taught titled “Renewing American Civilization.” 

    Eighty-three of the eighty-four charges were found to be WITHOUT MERIT and DROPPED.

    The remaining charge had to do with contradictory documents prepared by Newt’s lawyer supplied during the course of the investigation.  Newt took responsibility for the error and agreed to reimburse the committee the cost of the investigation into that discrepancy. (IT WAS NOT A FINE!)

    In 1999, after a 3 ½ year investigation, the Internal Revenue Service (under President Bill Clinton, nonetheless) concluded that Gingrich did not violate any tax laws, leading renowned CNN Investigative reporter Brooks Jackson to remark on air “it turns out [Gingrich] was right and those who accused him of tax fraud were wrong”.

    Newt was cleared of ALL ethics charges!

    It is quite obvious that the commentors here are listening to the media pundits.
    Even Fox news which is usually having representatives from both political
    parties on their shows, is giving a sided bent to Newt Gingrich.  Probably
    because Sarah Palin is on their payroll.  I have lost all respect for her.
    She obviously has not done her homework or she would know that Newt
    is unelectable.  Newt is unelectable because of all of the positions he has
    taken in the past.  He help destroy America back then with his votes for
    Nafta, (free trade not fair trade) he helped to put through the Education
    Association, (today many children are failing in school)  he is for Cap and
    Trade which is the dumbest thing I ever heard of.
    Voting for Newt so Obama doesn’t win is the stupidist thing I ever heard of.
    I am going to vote for someone; not against someone.
    Newt cannot win.  He has to much baggage.  And by the time the
    democrats get done with him, his entire life will be in tatters and he will
    be hated by all of you who would vote for him because he didn’t win.
    You all will only have yourselves to blame and when you look at your
    children remember it will be you who have done this to them.  You and
    your children each owe $48,000. to the Federal Government. So for a
    family of 4, that is $196,000.00 .   What a lack of thinking in the camp
    for Newt Gingrinch.  He helped you get to this point.

    May God Bless You and give you all guidance.

    Cap and Trade: Newt did support it, but absolutely opposes “cap and trade” now. As well as any system of taxing carbon emissions. He testified before Congress against it in 2009 and led a grassroots effort while the Chairman of American Solutions to block its passage in the House and Senate. That IS conservative. As to the Couch with Pelosi, he said it was dumb. But he wanted conservatives to be part of the discussion – he never believed that man-made global warming was settled science.

    (Thanks to “PolitiJim”)
    Newt Gingrich as GA Congressman and Speaker of the House:•Lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 90% (most recent year was for 1998 at 100%)* ** •He had a Democrat controlled Congress up until 1994, a Democrat President and Senate from 1992 until 1998 •Helped Reagan pass biggest tax cut in 50 years as Minority Whip, called out George Bush on breaking his promise and led (as a legislator) a Democrat President to do the same. •Art Laffer confirms Gingrich helped on a team that designed “Supply Side Economics.” •Supported/Championed policies that created 11 Million jobs. •National Taxpayers Union’s Annual Scorecard on reduced spending and taxes gave Gingrich an “A”, for his last four years in office, ranking him #1, #4, #2 and #11 and as one of the most conservative members in Congress. •Led a Balanced Budget initiative with a Democrat President. AS A SPEAKER not an Executive Branch Leader and not in control of the Senate or Executive Branch.  He balanced the budget 4 times creating the first SURPLUS in decades. •$400 billion in debt was paid off during time as Speaker, although Gingrich agreed with Reagan on deal that ended up running deficits until 1988. •Fought and defeated HillaryCare both in strategy, as well as political and legislative maneuvering. •On third try got a Democratic President and Senate to initiate Welfare Reform that put 60% of recipients to work. •Gingrich’s pro-life voting record is 98.6%, 70 out of 71 votes. •Brought two partial birth abortion bills to Clinton that served as the model for what was passed under George W. Bush. •He helped Reagan’s initiative to eliminate 12 of 94 programs and cut budgets of many others like the SBA more than 50%. •He identified, recruited, campaigned for and helped organize over the biggest minority opposition swing getting 367 Congressional candidates to sign the Contract With America.  This resulted in a NET GOP pickup of 52 seats in the House, 8 in the Senate and 11 Governorships. •Multiple conservatives congressmen got their political start including: Jon Kyl Mike DeWine Jim Inhofe Fred Thompson Bill Frist Rick Santorum
    •Contract With America – (1995 Description): “…represented the culmination of 30 years of creative conservative thinking dealing with the basic social and economic problems of modern America. The ideas provided the background for the widest range of legislative initiatives, certainly since the 1930s, and possibly at any time in American political history.”

    I am concerned about Santorum’s stand on gun control!  Would someone clear that up for me? I just want someone to get the nomination who is capable of beating Obama, so I am one of those Americans Glenn is talking about, I guess. I believe so strongly that given another 4 years Obama might be able to destroy life as we know it! I have never been this apprehensive every single day of what this man might be able to do. He doesn’t seem to listen to congress. He has either 42 or 45 czars at the moment. They don’t have to answer to anyone but Obama. I think he was rooting for the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood during the takeover of Egypt. Now that they are in charge, he wants to give more aid to their military. I remember when Obama said, that if things get really bad, I will stand with the muslims. I don’t understand why Glenn doesn’t call the president out on the eligibility issue. The Constitution says that a person has to be a “natural born” citizen to be eligible to hold the highest office in our country. The Supreme Court in 1875 defined “natural born” to mean a citizen who is born to parents both of whom have to be citizens of the United States. I thought it was well documented that Obama’s father was never a citizen of the United States of America!!! What gives with Glenn on this issue?

    I can’t help but think that Glenn is supporting Romney because they are both mormons!  This is the first time I have seen Glenn come out in support of Santorum. I don’t think he’s right to be attacking Newt this viciously. He should focus on getting Obama out of office. I also don’t think he realizes that he is causing a big divide in the Republican party.That in itself is very dangerous for the outcome we are all hoping for in this election. More than anything, we need a nominee who can beat Obama!!! The media is holding off the slaughter of Romney hoping that he will be the nominee. They are sure they can beat him. If anyone thinks that Romney didn’t win in SC because he’s a mormon, they haven’t seen anything yet. Just wait until the liberals get through attacking Romney on his religion, and I think that SC will look like they gave Romney the easiest ride of the campaign. The liberal media is chomping at the bit to start in on Romney’s religion.

    Glenn has done his fair share of carrying the liberal media’s water in the march to destroy Gingrich. He has to look no further than into a mirror to see why Gingrich is so polarizing — it’s not actually because of Gingrich himself but the perpetuation of the lies about Gingrich.  Why anyone would ever want to run for President in this country is a mystery to me – especially on the right. It seems every right of center radio talk show host has his/her own litmus test that each candidate must pass, and if he/she doesn’t, they crucify him. At least the libs follow Reagan’s 11th commandment. The likes of Beck, Coulter, Ingraham et al (Hannity and Limbaugh have been fairly good on this issue) get the knives out at a moments’ notice to destroy whatever isn’t completely coherent with their own ideologies.  It’s really sad. Go after Palin now, Beck, she’s supporting Gingrich and you mustn’t have that!

    The Bible states we are NOT to become part of the worldly.  Clearly, this means we are not here to “tolerate” other religions.  The Bible says that Christ is the ONLY way.  Or did you miss that part? The Bible goes on to say that this will literally tear families apart.  So, to the non-family it will likely be worse.  I will never change my belief in Jesus Christ to conform to the Mitt Romneys and Chris Christies of this world!  They are wrong.

    If we are truly Christians wtih a Judeo-Christian background, we are here in turmoil, not to tolerate.  If we tolerate what we know to be wrong, we are hypocrites.  What Chris Christie has done is against all conservative beliefs. You are basing your beliefs on worldly ways.  I will not accept what I know is clearly wrong.  These people ARE NOT conservative.  Mitt Romney, Chris Christie. They are far from conservative in their beliefs and their appointments.  If you can’t see that, then you are blind.

    Uh, the establishment doesn’t like Mitt Romney???!!! Really Glenn? Is that why John McCain, Bob Dole, Chris Christie and many other establishement politicians are coming out in droves to support Mitt Romney? I know Glenn has endorsed Rick Santorum, but he’s been way soft on Romney. I see the establishement every day on Fox News defending Romney and ripping Newt. I’d also like to hear Glenn expalin why, even though Romney is the so-called “progressive- lite” George Soros just said the other day that he’s not worried about Mitt Romney because he’s almost identical to Obama? Unless Satan himself endorses Mitt Romney, it doesn’t get much worse than that. Soros also said “conservative extremists” Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum would offer a big contrast between Obama.

    I’m usually with Glenn on most things, but not this one. I don’t know how he can be so blind to reality when Newt has been endorsed by Thomas Sowell, Todd Palin, Hermain Cain, Rick Perry, tons of Tea Party supporters, Michael Reagan, Art Laffer, and Robert McFarlane and he’s basically been endorsed by Sarah Palin. Are these people backing Newt just ill-informed? How in the world can Glenn explain all of this away? And what exactly has Mitt Romney ever done for the conservative movement? I’m with Mark Levin – Newt has balanced the federal budget, reformed welfare, lowered taxes, fought Hillarycare, etc. – how progressive of him. And, yes, Newt was a major player in the Reagan revolution says Art Laffer and Ed Rollins — both former Reagan administration officials. Newt has praised progressive presidents in 30 second sound bites that Glenn plays over and over, but Reagan also praised FDR, so I guess by Glenn’s logic, Reagan was also progressive. Nancy Reagan herself gave Newt an award in 1995 saying that “Ronnie” handed his torch to Newt. Rush is right, Nancy never would’ve voluntarily handed a foe of Reagan’s an award.

If he can’t be trusted to keep sacred promises to who is supposed to be the #1 person in his life (his wife) HOW??? pray tell me can Newt the Narcississt be trusted as POTUS? He CAN’T plain and simple. Newt is nothing more than Clinton with a R behind his name instead of a D.  Although Clinton was getting his knob polished in the White House hallway, Newt was getting his done in the front seat of his car in a parking lot. Despicable…and you want this pervert to be POTUS?  I don’t think so.

    I believe the support for gingrich is due to the fact that Millions of us are sick and tired of having our candidates decided for us by the MSM and the party establishment who insist that it’s Romney’s turn so he should win at all costs.  We had Dole, and Mcshame crammed down our throats because it was “Their turn”, remember how well that worked out?  Every time we run a “Moderate” (read Liberal Lite) candidate in the mold of dole, McCain, Bush sr, we have LOST!  But when a candidate  can effectively put across the conservative agenda Like Reagan, and Bush 2 (although the latter turned out less than conserv) we Win.  How hard is THAT to Understand???

    What gives you ask?  OK no one wants to say it for fear of being labeled a bigot, but the reason they are all flocking to Newt is because they can’t deal with Mitt’s Mormonism.   The Mormon question will be bigger in this election than it was in 2008 if Mitt gets the nomination and they all know it.

    I believe Romney’s money is his establishment.  His views have been all over the place. Just check out his pro abortion u tube, . He said “I will never ever change my mind on being pro abortion”. Right!  Unfortunately, no one else has any money in the republican party to fight Floridia so maybe we are all letting off steam. Even O’ Reilly says that. Now how much did Romney spend? Quess his 48,000 a day income may let him become president. He sure will say anything to win. He lost Florida last time around.  He will win tomorrow, He most likely will lose  Florida to Obama though but I hope not.  I don’t like Romney but anyone is way better than Obama. Thank god most of us agree on that. It’s just question of who can beat Obama, repeal healthcare and hopefully turnaround jobs. You and I have spoken before. Read my piece on the hospitals that my husband works for losing 10 million a month since Obama care. They are a non profit christian hopsital and never turned people down before Obamacare. Now they loose 10 million a month and can’t even get any grants from the govt. I suspect some Newt lovers really like him cause they think he could have beat Obama. I hope Romney can and I sure hope he repeals Obamacare. Romneys people assisted Obama with Information for Obamacare. Obama is going to use that against Romney. 
    I would think Beck would want anyone even if he thinks thay are a progressive against

    I’m 50. I’ve followed Newt for years. I have many of his books and dvds. He’s been a solid consistent conservative (with only a couple slips) and a record that we need to SAVE the Country NOW! I’m a Christian and understand what happens when you find Christ, repent, and you change from within, so I can give Newt a pass for his marital issues because I was a huge “sinner”  before I found Christ. I supported Romney in the last election, but now, I’m actually beginning to despise him. I like Santorum but he has no chance, and Newt shows he can get things done, because he HAS GOT THINGS DONE!

    For the record, I was once a big Gingrich supporter.  I wanted him to run in 2008.  Today, not so much.  All of the remaining Republicans are conservative on many issues, less so on others.  Frankly, I think Santorum is perhaps the most conservative, but even Santorum is soft on illegal immigration, and was a big spender in the Senate.  I like Ron Paul, butnot as president.  I would love it though if Santorum or Romney made him the Treasury Secretary.  Let’s be real. Neither Newt, Mitt or Rick are perfect conservatives.  But to say Newt has a 30 year record as a “consistant conservative” simply is not not the case.  Newt is as inconsistant as the others, let’s look at Newt’s voting record:- 1968 Nelson Rockefeller over Barry Goldwater? Not good, not conservative.- 1979 vote to create the Department of Education? Not good, not conservative.- 1980 adulterous affair and divorce? Not good not conservative.- 1987 co-sponsor of Fairness Doctrine? Not good, not conservative?- 1994 leader of Republican take over of congress?  Outstanding, conservative.- 1994 Contract with America? Outstanding, wonderful, thank you Newt.- 1994 A grade from Gun Owners of America? Good. - 1996 Welfare Reform? Good job, largely conservative.- 1996 C- grade from Gun Owners of America?  Not so good.- 1997 Guilty of ethics violations?  Not good, and I hope that is not conservative.- 1993-2000 Adulterous affair #2 (at least that we know of), & 2nd divorce?  Not good, and certainly not conservative, and definately not a Family Values Conservative.  He probably needs to concede that one to Santorum and Romney.- Sitting on the counch with Pelosi to “fight global warming”? Not conservative.- Supported Cap and Trade legislation?  Not good, not conservative.- 2012 Playing the Class Warfare card (even if it is against Romney)? Not conservative, downright socialist.

    Sounds like that is a Gingrich ad, most times they take things out of context, Romney is not for abortion. 

    Romney as a Mormon Elder, pressured a woman who wanted to abort her child to continue the pregnancy and give up the baby for adoption–he was attacked for that in the Teddy Kennedy campaign ads a few years later when Mitt was running against T. Kennedy.

    I again say that comment is a lie.  I do a lot of research.

    Gov. Romney gets a lot criticism for changing his moderate positions to conservatism in 2005.  I thought that’s what we wanted people to do.  Am I wrong?  It’s kind of like witnessing a person to become a Christian than criticizing him/her when they do.  Good grief, man, the National GOP Committee strongly supported  Romney when he ran for governor.  What did people expect from the governor, that he pass a Right to Work law in MA? I honestly believer that Romney, Santorum and Paul have more character and integrity in one finger than does Gingrich!! Romney is an American success story.

They’re both great debaters, saying words that are smooth as butter. But what do they stand for? I know some other candidate who’s words are smooth as butter and says what people want to hear. But that guy is running us over the cliff at a hundred miles an hour. So let’s put MITWIT or NITWIT in charge so they can slow it down to a reasonable 60 m.p.h. You sheeple make me sick.

    David G, As I would like for all 4 to stay in as long as possible, I like you, don’t think Paul or Santorum will stay in. Of course I do believe the liberal media is calling the shots as to who stays in or not, but if it comes down to Newt or Romney, I will not vote for Romney. One might as well vote for Obama again as to vote for Romney, because Romney will not do anything to repeal Obama Care. Obama’s health care plan is almost identical to Romneys. Romney’s campaign contributers are the same as Obama’s.

    Tell me, you bandy the word establishment around, what does it actually mean, do you know?  Newt is no conservative, I am not backing Ron Paul, but he served in the house with Newt and he said Newt was no conservative. Newt Supported NAFTA, GATT and WTO, he is an enthusiastic advocate of globalism.  He said he would have voted for TARP, he is for Ethanol subsidies.  He is for a national healtdcare, has been for 20 years, said so on Meet the Press, May 2011.  Most of Newt ideas are consistent with big gov.

    I still feel like Rick Santorum is the only one with values in the race.  He has come into politics to make things better not to feed his ego or bankroll.  It looks like as a nation we are more shallow than I thought.  If Newt or Rick said they could save your life and it absolutely depended on it who would you choose?  If they were heart surgeons and I needed a bypass I would go with the guy who is dependable and has a consistent record. Just as Obama rode in on a No Bush vote, I hate to see us elect someone with a No Obama vote that is less than desirable.  Mitt is not a choice as he already is less than truthful with his remarks and he isn’t even president yet.

    Here is the problem with Glenn making the continual allegation that Newt is a full blown progressive and not understanding the support of tea partiers and other known conservatives. Newts stated ideas and what he wants to do in the first few days of his would be presidency, are very conservative and are not progressive. In fact Glenn would have a hard time finding them disagreeable and this is just the first part of the problem and I will outline the second part next. 

    Here are the ideas and things that Newt proposes to do in the first days and weeks if he is elected president. 

    1) Repeal Obamacare and pass a replacement that saves lives and money by empowering the patient and doctor and not the bureaucrats and politicians. Newt believes that Obamacare is unconstitutional and is “unprecedented expansion of federal Power.” Part of Newts solutions would be through a free market framework and allow individuals to by healthcare across state lines as well as lawsuit reform.    
    2) Return America to robust job creation through a series of bold tax cuts to help entrepreneurship and job creation. Reduce Corp. Tax rate to 12.5%, abolish capital gains tax, abolish death tax and return to 100% expensing. Reduce regulations through regulatory reform by repealing Dod-Frank legislation and Sarbanes-Oxley Law. He also wants to COMPLETELY REFORM THE FED RESERVE starting with a complete audit of the reserve and many other provisions to bring the reserve under control. 
    3) Unleash Americas energy production in oil, natural gas, biofuels, wind, nuclear, oil shale which would also help with job creation and generating more Fed. revenue as well as bolster the dollar and help in national security.
    4) Saving Medicare and social security and giving people the opportunity to move into alternative programs if they choose to do so. 
    5) Balance the Fed budget by increasing revenues through greater job creation and entrepreneurship, reforming entitlement, implementing productivity improvement processes for the government (lean six sigma) which will eliminate waist and fraud and pass a balanced budget amendment. 
    6) Control the boarders by 2014 and establish English as the official language, reform the Visa system and make it easier to deport criminals and gang members and make it easier for law abiding visitors to become citizens. 
    7) Revitalize the national security system to address the problems of the 21st century. 
    8) Minimize the speed of impact on new medical breakthroughs so that patients can get the treatment sooner. 
    9) Restore the proper role of the Judicial branch of government through clear delineated power available to legislatures and the executive branches of government to correct, limit and replace Judges when the constitution is violated. 
    10) Enforce the Tenth Amendment by starting an orderly transfer of powers back to the STATES AND THE PEOPLE from the Federal Government as the Constitution requires. 

    The second part of this is that Glenn holds a bias against Newt because he says that he is a Teddy Roosevelt Republican and in Glenn’s eyes this is akin to treason because Teddy started the progressive movement in America. In Glenn’s interview of Newt he asks him about this in the context of regulation and healthcare. Newt gives a good explanation of why he refers to himself as a Roosevelt Republican and that he is a minimalist with regard to regulation which in my opinion is good because we do need some or minimal regulation in the country to help keep crooks from profiting by poisoning the public through poor sanitation as an example.

    I think many of us are missing the point.  This presidential GOP candidacy is more than just poking holes in one another.  No matter what a person’s faith, sexual persuasion, we all have a right to know the truth.  We all need to have an HONEST federal government, which is in keeping with our Constitution.  One that is SMALLER — much smaller.  That is what has made our country as great as it is.  We are so quick to forget these basic principles of freedom and liberty, and instead become embroiled in the melodrama that we are fed by the media we are forced to watch.  What we need is to balance our budget, rebuild our economy, rebuild our lives!  And love and respect each other’s differences, even if we don’t want to espouse another’s life choices.  That is the BEAUTY of our Constitution.  We should instead be demanding that the Federal Reserve disclose what they’ve done with our money, our assets.  That will keep our money in our pockets.  We should be insisting on peace — no more foreign wars, and the trillions of dollars it makes for certain big corporations.  Bring our troops HOME.  That ALONE will put back enough funds into our economy to bring it back to life.  We have a great country here.  Let’s concentrate on getting it back where it belongs.  Let’s demand that the cart and pony show the major networks are staging in this sad rendition of a national election, with the poor choices of questioning and other mal-representation come to an end!

    Everyone seems to notice how Romney and Gingrich are going after each other. Looks to me just like a couple of Progressives going after each other – same attacks, same irrelevance, same,same. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised since they are both Progressives. Rick Perry throwing his support to either one is to be expected since he is a Progressive also.

    I was a little disappointed in Herman Cain’s endorsement but not much. I liked what he was saying while he was in the race but with no history in an elected position I just couldn’t get behind him.

    I am severly disappointed in Sarah Palin and will keep it in mind should she enter any later political race.

    Could it have anything to do with Romney being Mormon? I am not saying that is the reason for all, but this could be one reason. What is the deal with the evangelicals? Is not a Christian someone who accepts Christ as their Savior? Members of the LDS church (Mormons) accept Christ as their Savior. Voting for someone else just because they are not Mormon is ridiculous!!! I am sure that there are those that would vote for Obama instead of Romney just because he is LDS. Such hate for a Christian that believes a bit different from yourself, in my opinion is moronic. Actually, it is sad, it shows a lack of an understanding of what Christianity is about. When someone is willing to support someone who basically is against good (and I am not specifying Gingrich), just to not vote for a Mormon who lives a good life and tried to do what he believes what God would have him do, is someone who I do not understand. What about Gingrich? He isn’t evangelical. He is Catholic. He is not evangelical. How could these Evangelical Christians single shut one person (Romney) out who does accept Jesus as their Savior, and slander him by saying that he is not Christian, and vote for anybody else, regardless of their past or present actions, just because they don’t agree with one who is a MORMON CHRISTIAN!!!!!! The adversary tries to lead people away from good in any way he can. That includes, in my opinion, this idea that it is better to support the devil that vote for one that is trying to serve God. God looks at the heart, does he not? Just a bit frustrated with these evangelicals that profess to support God, when they shut out others that try to do the same and say they are not Christian when their whole flipping religion is based on Christ, hence the name, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints..  Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that evangelicals are evil, but I think that many of them are not acting in a Christlike manner with this issue.

    Personal insults do not bolster you argument.  Neither does burying your head in the sand.  Willful ignorance is the worst kind…

    Haven’t got this in for a while…

    “Whatever your stance on Newt Gingrich, one thing is clear, Beck stands
    in opposition to every other talk radio host of merit on the air.
    Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin have all defended Gingrich against attacks
    from the establishment/Romney machine while Beck perpetuates
    them…regardless of their accuracy. That is not to say that Beck is
    pro-Romney, but it is to say that Beck is decidedly anti-Gingrich, and
    that his positions are bound up in an emotional part of Beck’s make-up,
    rather than a rational policy based place. Such a thing is hard to
    deny as we repeatedly watch Glenn Beck turn on his supporters and bite
    the hand that feeds him.”

    Either you are misinformed or intellectually dishonest.

    GIngrich does not believe in man-made global warming. He likes FDR because he was an excellent commander in chief and leader during WWII (so did Reagan). He believes he saved the world from Nazism. He does not support “New Deal” policies. Newt received the National Rifle Association’s Defender of the Second Amendment Award.  His legislative voting record was consistently scored by the NRA as either an A or A+. The park bench was because he wanted conservatives as part of the discussion, not because he believed Al Gore was right..

    We are in agreement on Romney. He is not a conservative and not a good choice. It is not a matter of forgiveness, he doesn’t need my forgiveness (he needs his ex-wives forgiveness). It is a sign of his character, we have a better choice than him. Santorum has better, more solid character. He is not perfect either, we won’t find that in any human being. But I am sick and tried of settling for the lesser of 2 evils.

    Phil Goss: Thanks for the compliment, I have a lot of respect for Glenn Beck. But obviously I’m not him. I’ve been using versions of my innocentbystander screen name since posting on 2nd amendment-type boards for years, though this is the first on this page. Maybe we’ll meet up someday in one of those lunar colonies your candidate is promising. :-) He’ll say anything to get a vote–he’s in Florida where the NASA driven industry has been hit hard by cuts so he’s making ridiculous promises. I must be missing something, but as far as character goes, Newt comes in a distant 4th behind Paul, Romney and Santorum. I also think it’s funny that so many are willing to swallow Newt’s attempts to paint Romney–a Washington outsider–as an establishment guy. Newt was the Speaker–a job you only get after lots of wheeling and dirty-dealing–and looks a lot more like an establishment guy than anyone else in the field. He’s using the old elementary school trick: if a charge can be levied at you, make it first to your adversary so when they point the finger at you it just looks like an “I know you are, but what am I?” turnabout and is dismissed. I’m just surprised that folks keep buying it from this guy.

    Finally, do you really think Glenn Beck supports Romney? It seems to me like his guy is Santorum, though at least right now it looks like Romney is the only one who has a chance to beat Pres. Obama.

    “To be sure, Gingrich made some mistakes in the past. “I make no excuses for his personal life, which was a mess. But he has found his faith now, he has found God. Why would we act like Marxist leftists ourselves, like a bunch of frenzied nut jobs trying to turn this man into something he’s not.

    I am shocked that Glenn Beck is not backing Gingrich.  Gingrich ruffled a lot of the people in the Gop when he was in govt.  But he forced Clinton to get rid of “the great welfare society” and now Obama has brought it back with a vengence.  Yes, Gingrich made a lot of mistakes in his marriages, but he has said he has repented and is now a Catholic.  I remember Glenn when he  told his audiance that he was a drunk and a total loser, he should try to believe that Gingrich could change his life also.  The objections are because of his personality:  If Polosi is so against him, that gives me another reason to vote for him.  Also the adminatration keeps talking about going against Rommney and only him.  Gingrich doesn’t have the polls right now, but that very well could be changed when the choice changes to only him and Obama.  I do not care to vote for Rommney, but  if  it is  only him and Obama I will vote for him.  Untill then I am voting Gingrich.  By the way I am 68 yrs old and a Catholic and I was around during his time, younger people don’t know.

    Christie is a man of character.  The judges in question were qualified for the job, had the necessary experience, and did not have a history of judicial activism (legislating from the bench).  So, he supported them.  That’s what an honest man of principle should do.  It’s total hypocrisy for “conservatives” (as you define them) to be absolutely opposed to affirmative action yet you want a form of affirmative action–only you want it applied to benefit evangelical Christians.  It’s  sad that they only things about the judges that matter to you are “gay” and “Muslim.”

    I have observed that Mr. Beck seems to be in the tank for Rick  Santorum.  It’s OK by me that he is but I don’t think it’s wise to be overly enamored with any politician.  After all, Mr. Santorum has his own political “fleas.”

    It is also true that Rick Santorum cannot win the nomination–those pesky poll number prove this out; it could have something to do with his flip-flopping on so many things.

    Personally, I would like to see Ron Paul in the White House but, most Americans don’t have the guts to vote for him–his perscription is just too bitter.  (Again, those pesky poll numbers show us this.)

    That leaves Romney and Gingrich.

    Given that the original “spooky dude” (that would be George Soros) has endorsed Mitt Romney (he said that a Romney administration would be about the same as an -0bama one) has solved the dilemma for me; I have NO choice but to support Gingrich.

    Besides that, when it comes to debating -0bama, I am confident that “Newt the Astute” would shred -0bama!

    At the end of the day, it’s all about who can beat -0bama.  Newt has the best chance.  If Romney did win, all we’d end up with is “-0bama lite.”  I don’t want that!

    I respect conversion, but it is judged by the fruits it yields.  Newt has shown himself to still be a two-faced liar (cheating on your wife is the ultimate dishonesty)–so much so that some of his biggest supporters have had to back away from him.  His anti-capitalist raves are classic.  His hit piece on Romney’s tenure with Bain was awful. I can handle innuendo, but it was largely FACTUALLY incorrect–a total fabrication. Lie after lie after lie.  I see no conversion, only a continuation of bad behavior with a claim that his finding Jesus means we cannot question his filthy behavior.  I have reservations about Romney myself, though I’ve worked with both Mormons and Evangelicals–guess which group I’d trust to take my daughter home from the dance?

    My conscience will be clear. I am not sure if I would go vote if Romney gets the nomination, because it would just be more of the same. If any of the other 3 were to get the nomination, then I would vote for them. I hope Paul does get it, but I just don’t believe he will, by the way things are looking. If he is still in the running when the primaries come to N.C. then I will vote for him. I like Paul because I believe he would vote by the Constitution, and will do away with the Fed. Reserve, but I am not like you and will not throw my vote away just because he doesn’t get the nomination. If Romney gets it, then I would have to decide if I was going to vote. I definately will be working hard for the Republican candidates running in my district, because if Obama or Romney get the Presidency, we will have to keep the House and take the Senate to keep the President under control.

    Something you heard on TV, I’ll just be willing to bet.  You’ve lost you way and have no idea what conservatism really means.  You’ve been innoculated by Glenn Beck, Fox News and probably Ann Coulter, probably in one fell swoop.  Ann Coulter who loves Chris Christie, who endorses Mitt Romney, who is unbelievably buying the vote of the country with his lies.

    Do you truly believe this country should be on a path of appointing Muslims to offices where they can actually rule on our laws?  From 2001, until 2012 – 11 short years, we have gone from being attacked by Muslims to having people voted into office and appointed as judges who outright claim their Islamic faith.  There will be Sharia law in this country one day in the not too distant future because people like you have continued your pettiness and parrotted your phrases of ”racism”.  Are you ready for that responsibility? 

    Now, the conservative movement includes an openly gay black judge.  His skin has nothing to do with this and you know that, but you parrot the word of the century here “racism” and put a label that you know will draw criticism.  I merely read an article that said the same, “openly gay black man”  and wanted it to be known the type of person the so-called conservative Chris Christie is appointing to the benches in this country. 

    These appointments and the many more to come WILL BE THE DOWNFALL of this country.  If you can’t see that, you are blind and deserve no prior warning.  These people are against Christ.  Jesus Christ.  They are as atheists.  People who don’t even believe in Jesus.  The only way to salvation.  You have placed them into a category that seems harmless, but ultimately these people and the many more to come will become the Waterloo of this country.  Better party hard, because the country we once knew is gone for ever thanks to brainless people like yourself.

He is a narcissist with the ability to destroy our country and the world if placed in the greatest position of power we have. Narcissist’s need to stroke their ego, they don’t care about anyone else around them and they will go to great extremes to do it. Following are the symptoms of a Narcissist, note how Gingrich is the perfect classic example. I hope people will really reconsider favoring him for all our livelihood, otherwise we’re safer with Obama. Newt complains of Mitt being dishonest when clearly when the issues are studied in full Mitt is the honest one and Newt is not. 
    *Inability to empathize *Expects special treatment *Feeling of entitlementInability to admit that he or she is wrongInability to receive criticism *Unexpected, strong bursts of rage in situations that would not trigger rage in normal people. There aggressive outbursts are referred to as narcissistic rage. *Does not react to tears. If other person starts crying due to the cruel behavior of a narcissist, that may even aggravate the rage of a narcissist *Perceives oneself as omnipotent, superior individual *Strong need for admiration. Admiration serves as a form of a narcissistic supply. Without sufficient amount of narcissistic supply a narcissist feels empty and unsatisfied. A narcissist is like a drug addict, and narcissistic supply in its different forms is the drug.Is often envious and mocks other people (often behind their back) *In the beginning of the relationship idealizes one’s partner and often talks about supreme, never-ending love. However as the relationship proceeds a narcissist often withdraws his or her attention and may become cold and uncaring, even cruel. *Is often untruthful and due to this often ends up cheating in a relationship. Cheating is often a consequence of other traits of a narcissist, such as the feeling of entitlement (it is impossible for a narcissist to do anything wrong and so a narcissist does not perceive cheating to be a huge “crime”), inability to emphasize with the cheated partner and the need for admiration (narcissistic supply). *Double standards: A narcissist twists the rules so that they fit to the current needs of a narcissist. For example, if the spouse of a narcissist is cheating on a narcissist, the spouse is considered to be dishonest and bad person, whereas if a narcissist is cheating it is not wrong, because a narcissist simply “fell in love” and followed his or her heart. Double standards also apply to other areas in life.

    Success?  For whom?  Himself. 

    One of his “successes” was Dominos Pizza.  They just garnered a 12 million dollar taxpayer stimulus loan to stay afloat.  What kind of success is that?

    He claims he has created 80,000; 90,000′ or 120,000 jobs. I’ve heard all three versions.  He claims Staples is a huge success.  He has gone OVERSEAS to make it a success.  There are approximately 15 to 20 countries where Staples is now selling office products.  Multiply that X several sites in different countries.  I would be willing to bet that most of the jobs Romney “created” were overseas, not here in the USA.  What success for our country?  Not much.  Romney?  He has lots of money in his “blind trust”.  How much?  He doesn’t even know what they are invested in, according to him.  He likes to keep it that way so he does not have to be accountable.  That’s not success.  That’s called plausible undeniability.  He doesn’t want to know because he won’t have to give an answer and be caught in a lie.

    Mitt seems to be honest, but has a “plausible denability” answer that really bothers me.  Everything is in a “blind trust” and he never knows what they have invested in to make his money.  He also has a “plausible deniability” in regard to his SuperPac.  He cannot contact them to make them stop – how convenient is that?  Mitt is as pure as the driven snow and nothing sticks to him because he learned to play the game a long time ago.  What issuese are studied?  Isn’t it true that believe people will believe you and you just want your own candidate to win?  Isn’t that extremely manipulative on your part?  I believe so.

    I just can’t believe how this whole campaign is going.  It gets uglier day by day.  The enemy is Obama, and we should be pulling together, not ripping apart.  Whether you believe Mormons are Christians or not, we should be finding the common ground and figuring out that if we don’t get our act together and stop all this bickering, it won’t matter what religion we are or who divorced who, or whatever, because there is a war on Christianity and Freedom!  We will all lose.
    Just read all these attacks, and get a clue.  We will bring our selves down, along with the candidates.  We should be deciding that one of these guys is going up against Obama, and we better be there with everything we have or the guy who calls himself a president will cheat his way back into the Oval Office and we will all go down.  Get over yourselves and stand up for America, and quit giving the enemy more ammo. Get some positive attitude everyone and get over this insane insult against ourselves.  We are Americans. Let’s act like it!!!

    Sadly, I find myself agreeing with one of the worlds biggest scumbags, George Soros. We will be in the same trouble with Obama or Romney as our next president. Our only hope for a better future can only start with conservatives gaining control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives. Obama believes he is God. Neither he nor his Democrat cronies have any intelligent ideas of what we need to do to save or country from economic destruction. To compound our problems, he is a totally incompetant administrator. I now consider myself an Independant who will not vote for either of them. My vote for McCain as the lesser or two evils will not be repeated.

    It’s all about the money, baby.   Romney’s negative ads (very expensive, I may add) have hit

    Newt hard.   I think that’s what Sarah sees and, perhaps, Cain as well.  They both know or are

    aware that ‘he who has, gets.’     No wonder B.O. is coming to SF again for another fund raiser.

    He wanted a billion dollars for his campaign.  Now, maybe, he thinks it will take more than that.

    Looks like one really has to have a big financial backing in order to win in politics today.

    Which is too bad.  A lot of good or, potentially good, ones have to drop out early.

    Well, let the ”money boys” duke it out.   I won’t like it, but I’ll still vote for the one with the “R”

     I don’t care about his PAST personal life! As a Christian, I forgive him, now that he has turned his life around and become a practicing Catholic, and it’s all because of Calista, his new guiding force!  Amazing what a man will do for the love of a woman, and of course the love of a FORGIVING God! Take into account facts which folks conveniently forget, Newt balanced the budget for the first time in 40 years!  Newt, wrote the contract for America,in 1994, giving 10 reasons to elect Republicans, WITH NO COMPROMISES !!  and because we gave people  good CONSERVATIVE reasons to elect Republicans! We won in a landslide!! Again we did’nt compromise our beliefs, we don’t have to get Democrats to go along with us, especially if they want what’s against our beliefs!! Because of Newt, we got WORKFARE during Clintons reign, cut the welfare rolls dramatically, thereby balancing the budget! Next. during Clinton last 4 yrs, because of Newt, food stamps dropped, from 42% increase in the reign of Bush Sr, to  .20%, notice the POINT TWO %, not 20%!!!!  Newt has had a checkered past, me too! but I’m older and have a better thinking brain!  Maybe Newt does too!  After we’re finished throwing mud at each other, we have to get behind whoever is nominated! Or it’s good bye America as we know it!  Long Live America!!  Why are we  going to lose America as we know it? Ask Pat Buchannan He just wrote a book about it!  Racist, me? I think I’m becoming one!

    This time around average people see what’s happening before their eyes. This is why these crooks are working so hard at retaining their power base which supports their interests.

    What we really must do, is stop the corruption sure to be present in the voting booth. It will take a resounding repudiation of this Dictator-in-Chief to beat him.

    He knows this, coupled with Chicago style politics adding to the mix, it is sure to be a volatile election process.

    Then America has to make a choice: “What philosophically are we as a Nation?” Are we an ethical nation. Will we no longer support nor allow subversives to undermine our Constitution / Bill of Rights and Free Enterprise.

    This answer will decide the direction in which America proceeds.
    Will it be Freedom or Marxism.

    Rick Santorum is good guy and I believe would do a good job. However, he is not as outspoken as I would like. Also, after Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Gingrich, my confidence in knowing who are real conservatives and who are not, is shaken. After thinking about it, the finest example of a prominent conservative that I know won’t dissappoint me is Rush Limbaugh. If he was running for president I believe every conservative on the planet would step up.

He is a horse trader. His many years in congress led to no change at all, or at least no lasting change. It was just a big bandage put on an infested cancer. To be fair, none of them candidates are agent for chaange, just more of the same.

    I’m from a liberal area where there are a lot of independents (actually in Mitt’s backyard). Nothing and no one has been presented to us that would seem to make us willing to make a change in our commander-in-chief. Even those leaning toward conservative ideals are leaning more towards Obama than anyone else. What is being offered that is different than our current president, other than the color of his skin and the letter (R or D) after his name? Ok, Mitt will work for the millionaires and billionaires….Obama wants universal healthcare. Oh and by the way, are we 100% certain that there is nothing in that massive healthcare bill, maybe in the fine print, that would stop us from repealing it? I can just see us voting in an “R” for the sole reason of repealing this bill only to find out that it’s not possible for him to do it. Wouldn’t that be a kick in the ass! My thoughts on Sarah Palin? History repeats itself. This is all so familiar, like deja vu. With the country divided 50-50 between the D’s and R’s, we need to convert some of those independents to vote for us. I don’t really see Palin’s endorsement as beneficial to anyone, as the only minds she will sway are those of her diehard followers who will vote for any R who is nominated anyways.

    If Newt is the nominee I will not vote for him.  The destruction of America
    started in the early 20th Century and both parties have picked at our
    Constitution for over 100 years and the escalation began when Clinton
    and Bush were in office and Gingrich escalated that forum while Speaker
    of the House.  He worked with these 2 men who were members of the
    Tri-lateral commission to get bills passed that were not in the interest of
    the American people.
    I absolutely refuse to vote for Gingrich.  I will vote for a write-in candidate
    if Gingrich is the nominee. 
    If everyone out there did research and looked within themselves to
    determine what is right for their children and America, it would be
    easy not to vote for Gingrich.  Gingrich is not a conservative and
    will not win the election.  Sometimes, I wonder if he is not a front
    for the people who would like to destroy America.

    Have you all not been listening to Gingrich?  He wants to increase the State department by 50%!  How is that small government?  And the State department is not a pillar of conservative foreign policy either.  

    He says let’s go to the moon because there will be science that will be developed to help us here.  How about we skip that step and directly use science in the private sector to help us with the problems we have now i.e. energy.  I prefer Pres. Reagan’s statement that government isn’t the answer it is the problem. Gingrich sees government as the answer.

    Newt is not thin-skinned.  Newt wanted to run a “clean” campaign.  Then Romney’s money machine came out with the moneyed ads.  The smear campaign.  I saw Romney pretended “righteous indignation” on stage.  It was a ploy to make you think Newt was the one.  You fell for it.  The oldest trick in the book.  The hook. 

    Then I saw Romney with his “Plausible Deniability” trick…he knows nothing about his investments or his money in Swiss Bank Accounts and the Caymans.  Everything is in a “blind trust”.  He’s as pure as the driven snow? 

    Then there’s the “plausible deniability” with his SuperPac ads, again Romney throws his hands up in fake despair saying that “As you know, I cannot contact my SuperPac people. That’s out of my hands.”

    Does this guy sound a lot like the Teflon Don?  Well, he is.  He is backed by the Republican Hierarchy and the media — all of the media, including Fox News, Ann Coulter, and even the MSM. 

    The rest of us listening to these lying ads and faux replies by Romney (by the way he is a very bad liar), but I guess he was good enough to fool you.  By the GREATGARBO123, I’d say you sound a lot like that pretend therapist who claimed she knew Mitt was true blue and Gingrich was a narcissist – what a load of horse manure!

    No he doesn’t. your not listening to what Newt is saying. He agrees that government is not the answer.

    It’s all about roots, and if I love my ancestors, and share the same values, and worship the same God they did, then somehow I am flawed!!!   Kiss my grits, progressives!!  Ever heard the word “martyr”?  Followers of the “WAY” would rather die than switch, not by violence, but sacrifice.  When I think of Newt, all I can see, is him cocking his head to signify total agreement with Nancy “The Word ” Pelosi during the global warming propaganda commercial.

    Republicans=Conservative????  Not anymore!!!  I would rather vote for Obama than Gingrich,I like mty enemies better when they don’t hide in my ranks.  And I DID vote for McCain, he might have been a huge progressive, but he earned my respect and love, when he served and gave his nearly, last measure of devotion, to a country which appeared to care little for his sacrifice and plight.

    Just reregistered, as an independent.    Romney is not my cup of tea, but he is head and shoulders above the Fig of Newton. 

    God Bless Rick Santorum.  (and all the rest of you, but slightly less for the progressives!!)

    I don’t know who you are “Innocent1bystander”, but you are far from innocent.

    And by the way…I have actually dated a Mormon during my teenager years.  He was on “mission” and wasn’t supposed to be dating.  Of course, not being a Mormon myself, I didn’t find that out until later.  I met him at the movie theater.  He didn’t tell me he was a Mormon untiil many dates had passed.  Guess what?  I wouldn’t trust a Mormon to take my daughter home from the dance!  When it was time for his”mission’ to be over, he told me he really liked me, but that I was not good enough to go into the temple.  I didnt’ even know what that meant.  HE WAS STILL GOOD ENOUGH, EVEN THOUGH HE WENT AGAINST MORMON BELIEFS. However, i was not.  What a hypocrite!

    It is easy to say that Rick Santorum is the closest thing we have in this race to a conservatism, but he’s not getting the votes to win, Clayman22. 

    I am simply defending Newt against the onslaught of those who would judge him as not being a changed man.  He who is without sin should cast the first stone. 

    His wife claimed he wanted an open marriage.  Newt said it wasn’t so. It is he said/she said. 

    Again, Jesus met a woman who had had five husbands and was living with a man who was not her husband.  He didn’t condemn her.  He forgave her.  The Samaritan Woman at the well. 

    Every here thinks its just the most horrible thing for a man to sin, and yet we all sin daily.  BUT, that’s okay.  You pick and choose the sin you want to claim is the worst. 

    “Our righteousness is as “filthy rags”.

    I want the man who can actually GET US OUT OF THIS MESS WE ARE IN AS A NATION!  These petty arguments about Newt’s sins get on my nerves.  I am trying to defend the man I believe is the only one who can beat Barack Obama!

    Sir it is a two man race. And (inspite or his words of praise for some terrible early 20th century politicians) the record of Gingrich (and his campaign platform) is far less Progressive (far more Conservative) than the record (and the campaign platform) of Romney. However, it does not matter now – in a few hours it will be over. Romney will have won the Florida Primary and that will be the nomination race de facto over – bar “all the sound and fury that signfies nothing”.

    To be fair I do not think that Newt Gingrich really has an effective plan for balancing the budget. Getting rid of the Department of Energy is good (but only a small step on the road – although Romney will not even take this step) and what does getting rid of “most” of the Department of Education mean? As for “slim six sixty” (or whatever it is) – oh no, not another effort to make government “efficient”. The only way to really save serious money is to look at the FUNCTIONS of government and then decide “we are not going to do some of these things any more” and then clearly list what FUNCTIONS government will no longer do.

    We have seen corruption in voting.  Why is it so hard to believe the polls aren’t influenced as most of the media, in order to bring a mindset to all of those who wait to see what everyone else thinks in order to make thier own choice. 
     I am Not a Lamb be led to slaughter. 
     …and, I do not vote for polls, I vote for who I Believe can get it done. 
     The unfortunate thing here is the money used to follow the most capable.  Seems these days it follows the most popular.  I don’t need to like you, for you to be willing and able above all others, to get something done.  But the campaign process has become about money…you buy your way into the Whitehouse now.  We need serious campaign reform in this country.  Every voter is being disenfranchised by the new system of the haves and have nots, this will determined who serves us or is it themselves(the haves) they are serving.  People Wake – Up before you get sold down the the road to being enslaved to a system that You Can Not Work Long and Hard Enough To Pay For…because make No Mistake We Do Pay for whoever is elected and in more ways then one.

    Glenn, to your point about Newt knowing and being around those who did evil,
    …when you have been somewhere where there is evil and know it, …sometimes you just want to undo the evil. And we so not need to guess as to what Newt wants to do, he plainly comes out with exactly what he is going to do and how.  Check his interview on Hannity last nite for what he wants to do Day 1.  Get back to me.
    Why do you think that just because you are aware of something means you are for it?  That would make you a rats – a_s Glenn!   C’mon, Sarah said it and I have said it before I heard her say it….
    …If Newt is so insider, ( You Know …For the Establishment and Not Just Knowing Them,
     but because he Worked and Accomplished so much for so long, from inside for this country)
    …why Tell me why, legitimately, are so many of the establishment / elite republicaan’s having hissy fits?  You and everyone else who claims to be conservative can see there is little difference between Mitt and Obama. What gives? If that is the match up…you have Obama for 4 more years….BE NOT FOOLED.    You are much smarter then this Glenn, can’t you see that besides the few lame visits of Obama campaigning….He (his campaign)  is very much in this and so is his money….influence.  You need to clear your head of every evil progressive agenda that has tried to destroy you and get your head in This Campaign …Straight.  Snap out of it!!

    Newt a conservative? Ha! A guy that has consistently sided with liberals, even praised Romneycare in 2006 despite saying how ‘bad’ it is in the debates despite that being a Constitutional state right that was even endorsed by a major conservative think tank which was there when it was signed into law. This is a guy that has been against the religious freedom of Muslims, demonized minorities by stating Spanish as the “ghetto language”, was against WOMEN being in the military in the 1990′s because they had a monthly ‘infection’ to deal with. He was ousted by his OWN party by a large majority when he was Speaker, only balanced the budget TWO of the four times he was Speaker, he’s flip flopped on so many issues, he’s lied and deceived the American people throughout the election process, he’s been a Washington insider for decades after he was ousted in disgrace as Speaker, he has no experience in the private sector and has touted a progressive liberal democrat (the same one that Obama has admired) as the best president ever. He demonized Clinton for having an affair with Monica WHILE having one of his own! Polarized far right conservatives should get their head out of their ass and get a clue.

     What was Glenn’s position on the Dept. of Education when Carter signed it into law in 1979 or any other progressive issue back then? Glenn probably either didn’t take one or didn’t care. So he’s changed his views from back then also. Isn’t it fair to allow Newt to change his views too? 
     Conservative leaders today were not born that way.Like scientists proving theory, it took some mistakes along the way to finally come to the ideology they now embrace. 
    A lot of the baggage that Newt is being villified by Glenn for now stems from some of his “experiments”. Experiments in governing,   that were eventually   proven “progressive” were being conducted  in the lime light or public view.  Most of us had the luxury to evolve our conservative ideology, LIKE GLENN, in obscurity, Newt hasn’t.
    Glenn would like us to believe your belief system  is an exact science, and you could have never wavered  from it to be creditable or relevant. I wish he would take that position with the other candidates in the race.

    You are such a cherry picking moron, Frank. 

    “If combat means living in a ditch, females have biological problems staying in a ditch for thirty days because they get infections and they don’t have upper body strength.

These things are very real.
     
    Women in Service—
    He did not Say “Monthly Infections” as you put it.  He was talking about women getting UTI’s and other female infections if they were in a ditch for thirty days. 

    That is cherry pick #1.

    On RomneyCare, Newt said this:
     
    While in theory the plan should be affordable if the whole state contributes to the cost, the reality is that Massachusetts has an exhaustive list of health coverage regulations prohibiting insurers from offering more basic, pared-down policies with higher deductibles. (This is yet another reminder that America must establish a cross-state insurance market that gives individuals the freedom to shop for insurance plans in states other than their own.)
    In our estimation, Massachusetts residents earning little more than $30,000 a year are in jeopardy of being priced out of the system. In the event that this occurs, Governor Romney will be in grave danger of repeating the mistakes of his predecessor, Mike Dukakis, whose 1988 health plan was hailed as a save-all but eventually collapsed when poorly-devised payment structures created a malaise of unfulfilled promises. We propose that a more realistic approach might be to limit the mandate to those individuals earning upwards of $54,000 per year.
    While the Commonwealth’s plan will naturally endure tremendous scrutiny from those who assert that the law will not work as intended, Massachusetts leaders are to be commended for this bipartisan proposal to tackle the enormous challenge of finding real solutions for creating a sustainable health system. I hope that Massachusetts’ initiative to provide affordable, quality health insurance for all continues to ignite even more debate around the subject of how to best address our nation’s uninsured crisis and the critical problems within the health system at large.

    On the so-called derrogatory remark that was in the ROMNEY AD:  by CNN
    Truth Squad: Did Gingrich refer to Spanish as ‘ghetto’ language?
    By the CNN Wire Staff
    updated 3:10 AM EST, Fri January 27, 2012
    Editor’s note: Part of the CNN political fact-checking series
    (CNN) — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich accused former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney of taking out of context comments he made about bilingual education. The speaker’s comments are referenced in a Spanish-language political ad. During Thursday night’s CNN Republican candidates debate, moderator Wolf Blitzer asked Romney about it, “You’ve had an ad running saying that Speaker Gingrich called Spanish — quote — ‘The language of the ghetto.’ What do you mean by that?”
    The statements:
    “I haven’t seen the ad, so I’m sorry, I don’t get to see all the TV ads. Did he say that? Did you say that?” — Former Gov. Mitt Romney said, first to Blitzer, then to Gingrich.
    “No, what I said was, we want everybody to learn English — I didn’t use the word ‘Spanish.’ We do not want anyone trapped in a situation where they cannot get a commercial job, they cannot rise.” — Gingrich
    “I doubt that’s my ad, but we’ll take a look and find out.” — Romney
    The facts:
    The advertisement in question is a Spanish-language radio ad airing in Florida. The ad says, “Reagan never would have offended the Hispanics as Gingrich did when he said that Spanish is the language of the ghetto.” At the end of the ad is the phrase, “Paid for by Romney for President, Incorporated,” followed by a voice that sounds like Romney’s that says, in halting Spanish, “I’m Mitt Romney. I’m running for president and I approve this message.”
    The advertisement was an apparent reference to a speech that Gingrich delivered on March 31, 2007, to the National Federation of Republican Women in Washington in which he said, “We should replace bilingual education with immersion in English so people learn the common language of the country and so they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto.”  After his “ghetto” comment stirred criticism, Gingrich made a video in which he said his words “were not the best.”
    The verdict: Misleading. While Romney says he doubted the ad was his, a news release sent by his press office one day before the debate, includes a link to the Spanish-language radio ad and offers highlights of the ad’s major themes, including the, “Spanish is the language of the ghetto” accusation. The ad, entitled, “Hechos,” or “Facts,” includes examples that attempt to show that Gingrich is not a “Reagan conservative.” It is clear from both the news release and the ad itself that it was “Paid For by Romney for President, Incorporated.”
    While Spanish is the largest single language other than English used in bilingual education in the United States, Gingrich is correct that he did not specifically refer to Spanish as the language of the ghetto. However, he did release the video later saying his word choice in the March 31 speech was not the best.

    Mitt Romney on Muslims:
     
    Mitt Romney said: “Based on the numbers of American Muslims [as a percentage] in our population, I cannot see that a cabinet position would be justified. But of course, I would imagine that Muslims could serve at lower levels of my administration.”  Absolutely amazing that a Mormon has such a short memory about where such prejudice leads.  Mitt Romney, has also expressed opposition to the Cordoba House project in NYC. —Romney announced his foreign policy advisors and they include Walid Phares Tied To Christian Militia That Committed Atrocities In Lebanon’s Civil War.

    He was not ousted by his own party.  He quit on his own.
     
    Eighty-four ethics charges were filed against Gingrich during his term as Speaker, all but one of which were eventually dropped.[68] After an extensive investigation and negotiation by the bipartisan House Ethics Committee, Gingrich was reprimanded and fined $300,000 by an overwhelming 395-28 House vote, with both Republicans and Democrats speaking in favor of those sanctions. It was the first time in the history of the House that a Speaker was disciplined for an ethics violation.[69][70]
    The last three charges were dropped because although it was found that he had violated a House rule in the past, there was no evidence that Gingrich was still violating it at the time of the investigation.[68] The one charge not dropped was a charge of claiming tax-exempt status for a college course run for political purposes. In addition, the House Ethics Committee concluded that inaccurate information supplied to investigators represented “intentional or … reckless” disregard of House rules.[71]

    Businesses
    After leaving Congress in 1999, Gingrich started a number of for-profit companies:[95] Between 2001 and 2010, the companies he and his wife owned in full or part had revenues of almost $100 million.[96]
    According to financial disclosure forms released in July 2011, Gingrich and his wife had a net worth of at least $6.7 million in 2010, compared to a maximum net worth of $2.4 million in 2006. Most of the increase in his net worth was because of payments to him from his for-profit companies.[97]
    Gingrich Group and the Center for Health Transformation
    The Gingrich Group was organized in 1999 as a consulting company. Over time, its non-health clients were dropped, and it was renamed the Center for Health Transformation. In 2011, when he became a presidential candidate, Gingrich sold his interest in the business.[98] It continues to sell many Gingrich-related books, videos, and other products.[99]
    The two companies had revenues of $55 million between 2001 and 2010.[100] The revenues came from more than 300 members and clients, with membership costing as much as $200,000 per year.[96] In mid-November 2011, Gingrich said he would release the full list of his clients and the amounts he was paid, “to the extent we can”.[100]
    Between 2001 and 2010, Gingrich consulted for Freddie Mac, a government-sponsored secondary home mortgage company, which was concerned about new regulations under consideration by Congress. Regarding payments of $1.6 million for the consulting,[100] Gingrich said that “Freddie Mac paid Gingrich Group, which has a number of employees and a number of offices a consulting fee, just like you would pay any other consulting firm.”[101] In January 2012, he said that he could not make public his contract with Freddie Mac, even though the company gave permission, until his business partners in the Center for Health Transformation also agreed to that.[102]
    Gingrich Productions
    Gingrich Productions, which is headed by Gingrich’s wife Callista Gingrich, was created in 2007. According to the company’s website, in May 2011, it is “a performance and production company featuring the work of Newt and Callista Gingrich. Newt and Callista host and produce historical and public policy documentaries, write books, record audio books and voiceovers, produce photographic essays, and make television and radio appearances.”[98]
    Between 2008 and 2011, the company produced three films on religion,[103] one on energy, one on Ronald Reagan, and one on the threat of radical Islam. All were joint projects with the conservative group Citizens United.[104] In 2011, Newt and Callista appeared in A City Upon a Hill, on the subject of American exceptionalism.[105]
    As of May 2011, the company had about five employees. In 2010, it paid Gingrich more than $2.4 million.[97]
    Gingrich Communications
    Gingrich Communications promoted Gingrich’s public appearances, including his Fox News contract and his website, newt.org.[98] Gingrich received as much as $60,000 for a speech, and did as many as 80 in a year.[96] One of Gingrich’s nonprofit groups, Renewing American Leadership, which was founded in March 2009,[104] paid Gingrich Communications $220,000 over two years; the charity shared the names of its donors with Gingrich, who could use them for his for-profit companies.[106]
    Gingrich Communications, which employed 15 people at its largest, closed in 2011 when Gingrich began his presidential campaign.[98]

    ·                    Celebrity Leaders is a booking agency that handled Gingrich’s speaking engagements, as well as those other clients such as former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.[95] Kathy Lubbers, the President and CEO of the agency,[107] who is Gingrich’s daughter, owns the agency. Gingrich has shares in the agency, and was paid more than $70,000 by it in 2010.[108]

    We have to make judgements every day. We particularly must judge the character of those we would elect. I do not claim to be perfect or without sin. Candidates step forward precisely to be judged worthy of the public trust. It is each of our jobs to weigh the facts and our beliefs to choose the best candidate this requires that we judge (not solely on character, perhaps, but character is still important). Newt minces his words and tells “technical” truths–he says he never asked for an open marriage–I’m sure he never used those exact words, so I guess his answer is “true”. If he’s “changed” why not just confess he’s a sinner (as I am and you are), admit his mistake and move on? Instead he claims his ex is an embittered woman making things up to hurt him. Really? She confided in others at the time (who corroborate her hurt over Newt’s I’m-too-sexy-for-one-woman demands). She must have planned her revenge really well to falsely cry on other’s shoulders about it to coldly plan for the day she could torpedo his candidacy. We are forced to make judgements about these candidates. I judge Newt to be unfit for president. You are, of course, free to make your own judgement.

    Harry: Read some more of what Reagan’s oldest son has said. He’s an unreliable turncoat and has been for years. Beck, Hannity and Rush have all slammed him for it.

    I agree I can’t see into others’ minds and say with confidence why they oppose Romney (there are valid reasons). However, the mormon issue seems to come up a lot when I’m discussing it with my friends. I admit the small sample problem, but that’s my experience. The polls about Romney’s mormon faith being a big factor are pretty convincing, though. The far right and the far left have big issues with it (at least in a poll). Is that THE issue for rejecting Romney? Obviously I can’t say for sure, but it sure is AN issue with a huge number of the so-called “Christian Right”.

    Just read your comments and maybe you are more disillusioned than you read.  You will actually vote for someone out of defiance?!?  That’s how we got Obama, no vetting and certainly no looking into character!!!  Intelligence check…which candidate will really work for creating jobs and reverse the intrusive regulations imposed by the far left loons in the Obama administration?  Which one will really get big government out of our lives and return us to our core values for country and individuals?  Obama has ruffled alot of ‘feathers’ and brought us mountains of rhetoric, how’s that worked for America?  Many claim Obama is a good speaker and debater….how has that really been effective in solving America’s debt and other economic issues?  Think, Pray, Vote!

    I don’t have an agenda (though that is exactly what someone with an agenda would say :-). I don’t think Newt will do that well in a 1 on 1 debate. The current format favors Newt’s one liners and factually challenged claims. When an opponent has the time to actually respond, he’ll look petty and foolish. Newt hasn’t done so well the last 2 debates. Outside of the realm of evangelical Christendom, Newt doesn’t play very well. The contract with America was a disaster, won in a landslide then lost in a landslide. He became the poster child for the Democrat campaigns that undid whatever good was accomplished (and more). Santorum had more to do with welfare reform than Newt. You won’t like me saying this, but Bill Clinton had more to do with passing welfare reform than Newt. (No, I’m not a Slick Willie supporter.) Definitely some good things were done while Newt was in office. The balanced budget however, was more due to unprecedented economic abundance than cost cutting.

    I don’t think you’re a racist, I think we just have a difference of opinion.

    innocent1bystander 1 comment: We have to make judgements every day. We particularly must judge the character of those we would elect. I do not claim to be perfect or without sin. Candidates step forward precisely to be judged worthy of the public trust. It is each of our jobs to weigh the facts and our beliefs to choose the best candidate this requires that we judge (not solely on character, perhaps, but character is still important). Newt minces his words and tells “technical” truths–he says he never asked for an open marriage–I’m sure he never used those exact words, so I guess his answer is “true”. If he’s “changed” why not just confess he’s a sinner (as I am and you are), admit his mistake and move on? Instead he claims his ex is an embittered woman making things up to hurt him. Really? She confided in others at the time (who corroborate her hurt over Newt’s I’m-too-sexy-for-one-woman demands). She must have planned her revenge really well to falsely cry on other’s shoulders about it to coldly plan for the day she could torpedo his candidacy.

    Yes, it would appear that this woman who has been harmed forever and has evidently not been able to forgive Newt. She, however is in danger of hellfire for HER unforgiveness going on 16 years; opportunistically she has come forward whether for money or revenge, both very unattractive reasons to come forward by the way, to finally get her revenge and probably make some money in the process.  Yet, after all these years of unforgiveness on HER PART, you have clearly chosen her side.  You, sir are very telling in your allegiance to Mitt Romney.  It is NOT okay for Gingrich to have sinned, but it is okay for his ex-wife to hold a very long grudge (which the Bible clearly says we should never do, as Jesus will not forgive us, if we do not forgive others), and yet you have failed to mention this. 

    I think Romney lies. 

    Truth Squad: Did Gingrich refer to Spanish as ‘ghetto’ language?
    By the CNN Wire Staff
    updated 3:10 AM EST, Fri January 27, 2012
    Editor’s note: Part of the CNN political fact-checking series
    (CNN) — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich accused former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney of taking out of context comments he made about bilingual education. The speaker’s comments are referenced in a Spanish-language political ad. During Thursday night’s CNN Republican candidates debate, moderator Wolf Blitzer asked Romney about it, “You’ve had an ad running saying that Speaker Gingrich called Spanish — quote — ‘The language of the ghetto.’ What do you mean by that?”
    The statements:
    “I haven’t seen the ad, so I’m sorry, I don’t get to see all the TV ads. Did he say that? Did you say that?” — Former Gov. Mitt Romney said, first to Blitzer, then to Gingrich.
    “No, what I said was, we want everybody to learn English — I didn’t use the word ‘Spanish.’ We do not want anyone trapped in a situation where they cannot get a commercial job, they cannot rise.” — Gingrich
    “I doubt that’s my ad, but we’ll take a look and find out.” — Romney
    The facts:
    The advertisement in question is a Spanish-language radio ad airing in Florida. The ad says, “Reagan never would have offended the Hispanics as Gingrich did when he said that Spanish is the language of the ghetto.” At the end of the ad is the phrase, “Paid for by Romney for President, Incorporated,” followed by a voice that sounds like Romney’s that says, in halting Spanish, “I’m Mitt Romney. I’m running for president and I approve this message.”
    The advertisement was an apparent reference to a speech that Gingrich delivered on March 31, 2007, to the National Federation of Republican Women in Washington in which he said, “We should replace bilingual education with immersion in English so people learn the common language of the country and so they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto.”  After his “ghetto” comment stirred criticism, Gingrich made a video in which he said his words “were not the best.”
    The verdict: Misleading. While Romney says he doubted the ad was his, a news release sent by his press office one day before the debate, includes a link to the Spanish-language radio ad and offers highlights of the ad’s major themes, including the, “Spanish is the language of the ghetto” accusation. The ad, entitled, “Hechos,” or “Facts,” includes examples that attempt to show that Gingrich is not a “Reagan conservative.” It is clear from both the news release and the ad itself that it was “Paid For by Romney for President, Incorporated.”
    While Spanish is the largest single language other than English used in bilingual education in the United States, Gingrich is correct that he did not specifically refer to Spanish as the language of the ghetto. However, he did release the video later saying his word choice in the March 31 speech was not the best.

    I am not sure what conservatives hope to accomplish by bashing and name calling Newt Gingrich, I was quite shocked actually of the childish rhetoric that Anne Coulter and Glenn Beck keep trying to drum into the airwaves.This is not helping the party at all, in fact Ia m sure Obama is keeping detailed notes to use as fodder once a nominee is finally chosen. The bottom line is that Obama loves the camera, smiles at it as if it is a mirror and he is gazing at his own reflection, Romney stutters and shies away from it. Obama will eat him alive in a debate, much less Romney’s stance on health care, I live in Massachusetts and I can tell you that I am mailed a piece of paper every year proving that I have insurance acceptable to Massachusetts, without this paper I will be fined on my state taxes, the local clinic in East Boston is flooded with hispanics looking to sign up for Massachusetts Turbo healthcare,free healthcare, of which there is an office right there. Mitt Romney created this, how in the world could anyone vote for someone who flip flops like he does? L:ay off the name calling and bashing and making fun of your fellow conservatives, and start supporting them, oh wait a minute that wouldn’t make for interesting columns or radio shows would it.

    Honestly we’re waiting for any of these candidates to get on youtube with a daily address that reflects an understanding of the situation.

    Given the national debt, the ‘laws’ that have been passed in the last three years of Obama, the international financial scene, we are frankly reeling and wondering if anything can be done.

    Will we be taxed into oblivion as ObamaCare goes into effect? Or will we be able to repeal it in the nick of time?

    Any candidate could overcome our concerns about their petty foibles if they would just put our eyes on the mountain, and then make it clear that they do not intend to stop until we have reached the top, regardless of what is said about them or done to them along the way.

    It doesn’t take a perfect, selfless person to get this done – just someone who understands the situation and then aims to fix it. As long as the purpose remains clear, the rest will reveal itself along the way.

    Right now the swirls of confusion surrounding a typical presidential nomination are clouding the big picture – who will shine the light and burn away those clouds?
    If no one does, we are standing by, watching the entire country go down, knowing full well it is happening and yet incapable of doing anything about it.

    I hope one of these candidates will seize the opportunity to do the right thing now – if not look for me in Idaho sometime in the future, I’ll be the one with the food insurance backpack…

    I will not stay home on ellection day. I don’t like Romney, but I will vote for him if he is the nominee. Santorum seem a nice guy and obviously a true conservative, but the democrats will eat him alive, and if elected to the presidency, he will be in as far over his head as President Obama is. Gingrich will be hated by the young and old, the rich and poor, the left and right, pretty much eveybody in the country, BUT he will put this country back on track. I believe he reminds me most of Winston Churchhill. Churchill saved England from the Nazi’s in WWII, but the minute the war was over they through him out, thought he was too arogant and unfeeling. Yes Newt is a bit of an *sshole, but he’s my kind of *sshole.

    Political campaigns advertising is exempt from truth in advertising laws so any candidate can say anything they want without having to answer for it. So I don’t look at what candidates say. I look at what they have done. Here’s a short list for Gingrich: voted for NAFTA that weakened American borders, voted for GATT that made the US subject to the authority of the World Trade Organization, voted for creation of the Department of Education, when he was Speaker of the House with a majority in bothe the Seante and the House spending not only increased but the _rate_ of growth in spending increased, he voted for the takeover of 80 million acres of land from Alaska that turned state timber and mineral assets into federally controlled tourist sites. The list just goes on and on. Forget about what Gingrich says. His history shows that once he is elected he abandons his campaign rhetoric and advances the goals of the Progressives. His ties to the Progressives are through John Vincent Weber and his membership in The Aspen Institute that has such impressive conservative members as Andrew L Stern of SEIU.

    The Department of Education vote is a particularly galling instance when even a member of the Democratic party pointed out during House floor debate that there is no authority under the Constitution for the government to get involved in education. If three votes had change from Yes to No we would not have a $44B PER YEAR Department of Education today and Gingrich’s was one of the Yes votes. You can trust Gingrich’s word on what he will do once attaining office as much as his wives can trust their marital vows.

    What do you know of people in the south?  Aren’t you showing your prejudice towards people of the south?  Where do you live?  Have you polled everyone of the south why they would or wouldn’t vote for Romney?  Aren’t you just mirroring a stupid statement made on a liberal talk show to say people of the south wouldn’t vote for Romney because he’s mormon?  You wouldn’t know the difference between a conservative and an Alien from another planet.  As per your post further down which there is no option to respond – you protect and defend a ”gay and muslim” superior court judge appointed by Gov Christi?? And, you defend ‘affirmative action’ which is no more than reverse discrimination.  Are you gay or a muslim?  You are a liberal monkey wearing the conservative costume of a phony gorilla – you mask who you really are – a true bonafide liberal.

    Greetings from the OKCorral:
    I find it singularly amusing that most of the folks that seem so negative about Newt are not old enough to have shined his shoes when he wrote the first contract for America.  I also find it interesting that the largest single donor to Romney is Goldman Sacks (about $360,000 bucks.  Didn’t they get “bail out” money.  Maybe not.  Just saying….

    No, I have not polled everyone in the South, I don’t need to. You just have to have a big enough polling sample to get statistical accuracy (with a confidence interval). That said, polls can only say what is generally believed. The results obviously don’t hold for all individuals. So no, I am not saying that everyone in the South feels a certain way. Just that enough do to make it a serious issue. Is it prejudice to use peoples stated opinion in a large sample to make a point? Do you really, truly, honestly believe that Romney being a mormon doesn’t matter to the Christian Right? The polls say it does. Incidentally, the only group of people less likely to vote for a Mormon president than the Evangelical Christians is those that identify themselves as “very liberal”–one group because they think mormons aren’t Christians and the other because they think Mormons are TOO Christian. I am a conservative, not a liberal, and have put my money where my mouth is, have you?

    I am not gay or Muslim. I did not defend gay marriage or sharia law. I just pointed out that Christie did what we all claim SHOULD be done. He evaluated qualified candidates based on their merits, found nothing amiss, and gave his blessing. It would have been just as wrong to deny them the position because they were Muslim and gay as it would have been to give them the position for the same reason. Do you really think Christie was courting the gay/muslim vote? Neither group would support him no matter what he does. He made the call by relying on conservative principles and NOT affirmative action for Evangelical Christians.

    I am anti affirmative action, not in favor of it. I pointed out that folks
    (apparently like yourself) who think Christians should be given preference
    for these jobs believe in a form of affirmative action so long as it favors
    themselves. I’m a Christian, but I don’t want affirmative action for me or
    anyone else. Do you really believe all Muslims are out to get us and take
    away our religious freedom?

    I am not a liberal, I just think Paul, Romney or Santorum are better
    choices than Perry, Cain, and especially Gingrich. I would vote for
    Gingrich ahead of Obama, but it would leave a bad taste in my mouth.

    I may be a money or a gorilla, but I bet I’m not the only one on here with
    fleas.

    Greetings Mr Bystander:
    I don’t know if you are so innocent as you say because obviously you are making statements without facts.  A bit like Romney suggesting the Newt resigned in disgrace from the speakers chair but then that is not the issue.  You are the issue so let me refer you to some factual evidence in lieu of your unenlightened comments.  First, let me refer you to Newsmax.com Friday 1/27/2012 concerning the contributions that Goldman Sachs is making to the Romney campaign.  According to the Center for Responsive Politics they have contributed $367,200 to his campaign.  I guess I will take their word over your biased comments.  Next, you are not much of a historian are you.  The Contract for America was pledged in the 1994 Congressional election which was “mid-term” in the Clinton administration.  It resulted in a majority election in both the house and senate by the Republicans (the first such majority since 1953).  That majority was held until 2001 when the senate was lost by one vote due to Bernie Sanders switching from Republican to Independent in the state of VT and subsequently caucusing with the democrats.  However both houses were regained in 2003 and control of congress was not lost until 2006.  Now then Mr Innocent bystander…it looks like you just got sideswiped.  “Da locum melioribus”.  “Magna est veritas et praevalebit”.

    I’m correct, you are not. Goldman Sachs doesn’t donate to any candidates. When an individual makes a donation they must disclose their employer. These guys have just added up all the donations by people that report they work for Goldman Sachs and say it’s a Goldman donation. It’s deceitful and misleading, but that’s what you get from newsmax. They give a one line statement in that same article: “Goldman doesn’t contribute directly to candidates like Romney, but does so through its employees,” to try to avoid an outright lie, but they still step in it. (see http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/romney-goldman-sachs-donor/2012/01/27/id/425780). If Goldman were making donations through their employees (pressuring them or giving them money to donate in their name) it would be illegal and the Goldman haters of the world would jump all over it. The Center for Responsive Politics agrees with me, thanks for the reference. Newsmax is a rag, they twist the “facts” to fit whatever they want and would support Newt even if they had pictures of him dating the devil. That Romney article is a prime example. Your recollection of history is wrong, but your Latin is pretty good. :-) The mainstream media has focussed their negative attacks on Romney–ever wonder why? You must think they’re good conservatives. Newt has no chance in a general election, Mitt is the best shot, but I prefer Santorum, I just don’t think he can make it out of the primary, so Romney, being second, is now first (in my book).

    Greetings Innocent:
    First of all partner, lets not make this personal.  I did not imply that I am in favor of Newt or Mitt.  You concluded that from the Goldman Sacks quote.  Next, if you have a problem with Newsmax, take it up with their editor but don’t rip me over your perception of their coverage.  Next, admit when you are wrong.  Don’t repeat the wrong by stating that my recollection of history is in error because then that says to me that you do not have the integrity to admit that you are not sufficently ambitious to do a fact check on the Contract for America and the subsequent congressional record.  Well, you seemed to have the incentive to check out the Center for Responsive Politics but like so many “wannabe liberals” when hung by your own petard you slink off into the weeks and hurl your little insults in departure.  You suggest you are a Santorum fan?  He is one of the more honest candidates.  He does his background checks before he hurls the cynics ban.  Why don’t you act more like the candidate of your choice…hmmmm?  Oh and yes, I will at least accept your compliment on my latin.  It is better than good.

    It is certainly not wrong to vote your convictions and I admire you for that.  I don’t hold out much hope for a true Constitutionalist in this cycle though.  The most important thing TODAY however is routng -0bama and his anti-American regime.  One must ask which candidate has the best chance of doing so.  Sadly, it is not Dr. Ron Paul.  I wish I could be wrong but I don’t believe I am.  As the French would say “C’est la vie.”

    I will likely vote for Ron Paul in the primary unless Newt “the Astute” appears to have a real chance of beating Romney.  My personal strategy is ABO (anyone but -0bama) and NOT Mitt Romney.  If the election comes down to a choice between Romney and -0bama, I shall hold my nose and vote ABO.

    In such a case I believe it is “better the devil you DON’T know.”

    Good luck to you.

    OKCorral: I think you need to re-read my post. I didn’t insult you, I was just making points about Newsmax’s bias and warped reporting. I wasn’t taking you to task for it–you were misled by a very misleading article, I was setting the record straight. The only thing I commented about you personally was your Latin–a compliment. For the rest, I was ripping Newsmax, not you. Sorry if you took offense–none is intended. You’ve questioned my integrity, called me dishonest, unenlightened, but most offensively, you called me a liberal! The name calling crown goes to Gringo.

    As to the facts, I guess we’re both right (not about the liberal thing though). I’m right about Goldman Sachs not making donations, you’re mostly right on the house/senate history. See http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0774721.html However, he did manage to lose some seats with a Democrat in office–usually the party in office is the loser. Wikipedia (I know, don’t say it) says, “Republicans lost five seats in the House in the 1998 elections: the worst midterm performance in 64 years for a party that didn’t hold the presidency … Gingrich suffered much of the blame for the election loss. Facing a rebellion in the Republican caucus, he announced on November 5, 1998, that he would not only stand down as Speaker, but would leave the House as well.” I agree, though, let’s not make this personal. :-)

    Yeah, Daylo—smear ads.   Sigh.  Do you think there will EVER be a time when

    they are not used?   If the subject is politics, probably not.   The way it looks

    from here, when a candidate is afraid of his position in the ratings (and, more

    importantly, has the money) that’s when the negative ads come out.   If Mitt gets

    the nod from the GOP, it will be interesting to see who can/will have the most or

    dirtiest ads—Mitt or B.O.

    Yeah, it’s all about hating the black guy. It’s all about racism. It couldn’t possibly be about his policies. Only his race. You are completely ignorant.

    It’s people like you that keep racism alive. ou are too dumb to see that though.

    Your over estimating his wealth. 1.9 mil is not that much anymore. He owns rentals and as this is my livelihood also, I know what that’s about. I still believe it’s important to have a father around while the kids are young. Both of my parents worked, yet they were still around a lot because of the occupations they chose. Unless he runs the country like Obama (on constant vacation), I expect our next president to make our country a priority. It’s just my opinion, I felt the same way about Palin and Bachmann too.

    From my bird’s eye view here in South Carolina — I can assure you that Nikki Haley is a fraud and a panderer (to Georgia and the open borders folks mostly) and was fast-tracked into office by the same gang of white collar thugs of various and sundry religious and political labels who will attempt to railroad Newt Gingrich into the White House by whatever means necessary.  It is an under-the-radar, underhanded snow job. 

    As for Sarah Palin, she must be hanging her hat on a VP-ship with Newt GingrichFox News (the Siamese twins).  

    Another thing — many in the Jewish community seem to be getting sucked into this Gingrich sphere of [false] protection out of fear, I think.  But let me tell you, redneck Nazis are as merciless as the European ones.

    Comments are being moderated on Jewish and conservative blogs that weren’t previously moderated and anti-Gingrich comments are summarily dumped to “not draw angry flak.”  Why have a blog or a press again?  I forget.

    Many, many thanks for your voice of sanity here, Glenn Beck!

    In many parts of the South — it really is about that [word you can only say if you're black] in the White House.  Do you think you sound convincing saying it?  [hint:  you don't]  Or are you just trying to whisk up a froth?

    So David, we ignore everything about Gingrich except that one time when he was conservative… all the times he was liberal are brushed under the rug?

    I maintain that Gingrich is neither left or right… he is nuts.  I truly believe there is a screw loose and I want some kind of mental evaluation from an unbiased source… as I have no doubt he could pay some one to say most anything.

    Oh and did you hear Alba? He sounded positively split personality himself!

    This support of Newt is Romney derangement syndrome.  Nothing less.

    Because their is no case to make for supporting Newt… and why, until he was nearly the last one standing the support went to him. 

    If he were the one… he would have gotten the support in the Spring when he attacked Paul Ryan with the Democrats.

    No pay back is immature and only brings further payback. 

    This is the cycle we need to end.

    Michele Bachmann was right to refer to them as “Newt Romney.” So I’m hoping that Fox News’ selling out to the Gerald Ford Country Club will be ignored; and Santorum will be looked at more closely.  Other than his infatuation with nation building, I find him to be the most consistent candidate still in the race.  (I was on Michele’s train until it ran out of money and crashed.)

    As for Cain…he has stated that Gingrich “might” go with the 9-9-9 plan.  So Cain’s reasons there are entirely narcissist.

    I can’t believe how you have changed Glenn. You taught us so much, and now you have totally confused many of us who listened. I don’t even understand what you stand for anymore. Maybe you should do a show and explain it to us.

    I would guess Glenn wants Romney. Both are Mormons, and Mormons support Mormons.

    Really!!!! Rick Santorum should be the guy for true conservatives. Rick Perry put his support towards Newt!!!! I couldn’t believe it. Who is most like Rick Perry……Rick Santorum.  This all reminds me of the people who voted for Obama before & now say “I didn’t know he was going to do this or that”  WHAT? Were they not listening to what he said when he was campaigning???? He said this was what he was going to do…Do people really know how to listen or do they just hear whatever they want to???!! Like now again……..listen to the candidates people…..really listen….learn… decide for your   self..      D Harmon

    You are turning this election into a “pissing contest”!!!  I think ALL the “contestants” have lied!!!  They are all EVEN when it comes to lieing and that being said ”lieing” IS part of a polictical race – get over yourself…  As for as why Newt is being supported – when did we become a “communist country” where everyone has to agree with YOUR choice???  Romney does NOT walk on water and Santorum I am sure he is a “nice” guy – but he is not for everyone – just like Ron Paul is not for everyone.  I am getting SICK & TIRED of you and the media telling people how to vote and if you don”t like their answer – your question is WHY DON”T YOU LIKE HIM……  In my opinion your attitude is more in line with the  OWS people!!!  Knock it off!!!  Furthermore, when we go into the voting booth “I believe it is ONE person” in that booth….

    Just because Cain did not “endorse the chosen one” -now you are calling him STUPID???  Who have you guys become – I do NOT recognize you!!!  Glenn you preach to us everyday to not follow like sheep – to use our minds – now you are telling us – “I take that back – think and do as I SAY!!!  Who are YOU?????  Has money & power clouded your mind???

    Sandy – Newt was not the ONLY one cheating – so were the mistresses (afterwards wives).  When a man is seduced – not very many man can turn it down!!  I was cheated on before – do I hate my him – NO.. I just divorced him and moved on.  I FORGAVE because he is a human being and deserves forgiven!!!  What a concept!!!

    …becaused you asked for proof. There is no other plausable reason why they would endorse him and instead of stating one you ask me to invent one for you. I presented mine, now its your turn.

    Newt Gingrich sat to put American on the path to conservatism and accumulated materials and tapes that Rick Santorum studied before Rick started out on his political journey. The reason you will hear Newts words coming out of Big Government, Rick Santorum’s mouth when he sounds like a Conservative. I am disappointed in those we looked to as our conservative leaders as sided with the student and not the teacher of conservatism. Remember, that FDR was a Reagan favorite, Reagan is considered another leader of the conservative movement
