Is this some kind of essay test that I didn't get the memo on? :-)

I'm not trying to be a turd in the punch bowl. I'm just kind of old fashioned in thinking that words actually mean things. I know it's silly, but when someone makes a proposal regarding legislation I kind of like to think things through a bit and figure out exactly how that's going to impact me and more importantly how it's going to reduce the size and scope of the Federal Government.

I see precious little of that here.

Now I'll grant the fact that Newt talks real pretty and it's easy to get lost in all those fine words he strings together.

Maybe I'm the one who missed the memo. Are we supposed to genuflect at the altar of Newt because he sends out a press release telling us how he thinks the Republicans can make it all better?

What happened to actually eliminating some Departments?

Most of what I'm reading here seem to be platitudes promising us ever increasing Federal involvement in Education, Healthcare, and now retirement homes. Is that what you want?

Just because some politician can turn a phrase doesn't mean I'm going to stand around gob smacked like a monkey who found something shiny.

I don't care who that politician is.

My post to you was an (obviously) dead joke. :-)
