Newt and Perry had a good night. Perry, with what few questions he had, was fantastic. I expect a Perry and Newt boost after this. I’m personally hoping Perry surges over Newt.
Some will say Newt hit it out of the park at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. I will say it was the first debate in history that a candidate hit it into orbit! Obama must be in the fetal position and clicking his heels together in fear that Newt may be the one facing him.
". . . They would be getting money which is a good thing if youre poor. Only the elites despise earning money.American Beliefs by John McElroy
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1385564/postsEngland (it wasn't Great Britain until later) found in the portion of North America which it was able to claim nothing but stone-age people and forests. The land was rich and had tremendous agricultural potential but wasn't farmland until it had been laboriously cleared of trees and vines. The English colonists found that gentlemen were pretty useless; what the situation cried out for was farmers. So England sent over poor people - some, including some of my ancestors, came from Lutheran Germany - and so the American polity was dominated by practical people (even if they often had religious motivations for wanting to come, still they learned that the situation required diligent work).
The conclusion is that Americans respect any honest work. If you reflect on English costume drama, you will realize that we didn't get that attitude from England - where the emphasis was on who you were rather than what you did - but in the American melieu where people were respected because they were useful, and were respected for the caluses on their hands.
unlike anyone else in the race Newt would make Obama look like an ill informed slap downed punk in a debate
Why was Juan Williams allowed to “moderate” a GOP debate?
Newt kicked butt, I love it
Should be interesting listening to the know it alls like Rush and hannity and Laura Ingraham.
Tip for you, Rush...if you’re looking for something to “Right on, right on, right on!” about; Newt has graciously provided you with several very juicy soundbites.
I guess if Newt had said these young kids should go out and get paid to be a community organizer instead of a janitor, that would have been okay. And deemd racially sensitive...
Why would it be insulting to say that the kids can work as janitors?
In fact, the janitor himself must have children of his own who’d be offended that Juan suggests this. THAT is elitist BS!
Work is work. You have to begin somewhere and if you are not skilled, you begin with unskilled tasks. You then continue your education and get a better job...etc.
Juan if full of s%$#!! I’m glad Newt smacked him down.
Hey Jamie....poor kids lack a strong work ethnic
You might want to proofread your article before it goes to print. Words have meaning.
Yeah, I’ve been mistified for a while about this murmuring campaign that Mitt is, of course, the only possible nominee. He wasn’t of any interest in 2008, when McCain somehow (somehow) became the GOP choice. What has Mitt done in the last four years to effect such a transformation?
Excellent news. Mr. Gingrich is our last, best hope to defeat Mitt Romney.
Newt did an outstanding job last night.
