Or Ted Danson on TV 17 years ago on tv telling everyone that “if we don’t do something today, the oceans will not exist as they do now in 10 years”?

ROFLMAO

I remember laughing about that.

Hopefully, we’ll hear no more of Newt ‘08 now. He and the leftwing mayor shouldn’t be considered as candidates here at the forum.

I’d like to see a transcript.

Newt could have done a lot better. it is correct to say that man is ‘contributing’ to CO2 generation, but then turn around and indicate that a) there is uncertainty due to water vapor and cloud feedback b) the postulated models depend on doulbing of CO2 (do you know that mean in the 21st century we would spew out 14 Gigatonnes a year of carbon on average, about 4 times or more what we put out in the 20th century c) there has been natural climate change for a long time.

The conservative movement is in great danger of losing focus because we lack leadership that can articulate a common and agreed position.

As for boosting kerry’s book , oh puleeeeze. When has a liberal said “hey, read Ann Coulter’s book, it’s 60% right.”

“CREA is a “staunch supporter of the Bush administration’s environmental policies,” and has been called a “greenscam” by Republicans for Environmental Protection, for taking mining, logging, chemical and coal industry money.”

LOL! That’s an *endorsement* of this group in my book. They support Bush and are standing up to eco-extremists like NDRC!

Yesterday I had a subscription to “Winning the Future” articles by Newt Gingrich. Today I don’t.

Effing moron.

I used to think Newt was a smart guy. Now I think he’s an opportunist. But for what reason? He’s not running for the Democrats’ nomination.....

Conclusion: He really wasn’t that smart. Moron

It's from a South Park episode (season 10, episode 145).

Al Gore is in town warning everybody about a creature called Manbearpig. Nobody else has ever seen Manbearpig, but Al insists Manbearpig is not only real, but an existential threat to mankind. He goes to all kinds of dangerous extremes to destroy Manbearpig, destroying property and nearly killing the kids in an attempt to do so. The whole thing is a hilarious and obvious allusion to Al's hysteria about global warming.

“consensus” - another way of saying argumentum ad populum. Equally worthless.

Beautiful post devolve!

Newt is neutering himself! He can go join the greenies or Peta or whoever wants him, lol.

He’s howling WITH the moonbats now.

Sure, blackmailing is a dastardly crime - but on the other hand, do our congressfolks all have that much to hide? ... unfortunately that is a rhetorical question - I'm not requesting an answer.

Unfortunately, I think they do have a great deal to hide. How else can Hastert's (R, IL) defense of William Jefferson (D, LA) be explained in the face of compelling evidence that Jefferson was guilty of bribery. Gingrich is dirty; hence, I refuse to support him.

There's plenty of chatter to indicate that Newtie was a philanderer much as slick Willie, only he was slightly more discreet. We all need to keep in mind that the two evidences of affairs are the ones he decided to marry. What remains unknown is the number he messed around with but didn't marry. What it all boils down to is that the one thing Newtie is for is himself.

We are all wary of politicians and their campaign promises. If we accept the premise that sometimes politicians say things or make promises just to get votes, then we have to be concerned about their character. Therefore, every candidate's character is an issue, unless we just accept that all candidates are liars and the election is in reality, as superficial as a beauty contest.

Newt is positioning himself to be on somebody’s VP ticket. Your job is to determine from whom he would take away the most or critical primary votes. The game ‘s afoot

Newt just lost his chance for victory as a ‘08 GOP Presidential candidate, not that all of his negative personal baggage helps any either.

I created a 2-moon planet!

Newt is missing power and limelight

And going for the gold - just like the Clintons have

It’s all about extortion, blackmail, taxes, Ponzi schemes

Sooner or later one or more pols, Judges, Greenies is going to “disappear” because of their scams

a foot is not the part of the body that came to my mind when I read about Gingrich’s pandering.

Yes, I’m sure he misses the limelight. Once in power they will always crave it and more and more of it.

Lol, I never thought about the two moons. That’s funny, but made a great post.
