If by drafted, you mean Christie, forget it. He is fine where he is. Appointing two shariah-oriented judges in NJ took the glow right off for me.
Of the ANNOUNCED candidates, I said it before. Santorum is a Conservative to the soles of his feet but I don’t think Santorum could win. Cain is a Conservative with good business sense, but that alone does not a president make, so I don’t think he can win either.
Daniels wants to skip social issues altogether, so no core values there.. Forget that.
Paul and Huntsman are just....loco. Let Huntsman go climb to Shangri La La and take Paul with him. The air would do him good.
I would have drafted Bolton during the LAST election, but he said no. Wouldn’t take him this time around unless there is nobody else.
I am Palin supporter all the way and my ticket would be Palin/West. I think she is far more formidable than most people give her credit for. And West takes no prisoners. That’s my ticket and I’m sticking to it unless something really, really drastic changes everything... like the world ends or something.
“Im not supporting Newt, but lets not distort what he said. He isnt exactly backing obamacare. Not even close.”
Here’s the problem; Newt also supports Comprehensive Immigration Reform, and he also buys into AGW (Remember his couch sitting with Nancy Pelosi?). The ramifications of this bogus science could potentially mean Cap & Trade for our country. This will spell bankruptcy for our nation. Sorry, but any person who buys into this bogus science, cannot be trusted.
In my opinion, the people here who are critical of Newt have good reason to be. The man is a RINO and CANNOT be trusted! 1994 was 1994. He is not the same man, and we are not the same country anymore.
In my mind, RINOs are more dangerous to this country than the Democrat/Socialist Party. At least we know where the Democrats stand on the issues. RINOs...you just never know.
What we NEED is a law that says if you dont have insurance and cannot otherwise pay, no healthcare provider (doctor, hospital, etc.) is obligated to treat you.
I kinda agree with this. At the very least they should have their visa card ready for payment or loan papers so the hospital or tax payers are not on the hook for it.
The Vampires have a strong team..
Why can't we consider how he *did* answer this morning on TV?
The only three that I see as good for America are West, Palin and Cain at this point in time.
Things change and another viable conservative could come around, but those three are the only ones I would consider voting for in 2012.
That’s my choice, too.....Palin / West.
A conservative woman and a conservative black is the ticket to send Obummer packing.
I have NO problem with individual responsibility. However, Obamacare mandates everything that has anything to do with healthcare. NO individual truly can have responsibility for their own healthcare when government commissions themselves as the controller and provider of all things healthcare.
I did not see it.
A group of conservative Congressmen and Pundits would pepper each candidate with questions about specific issues and legislation. The candidates would be forced to speak in detailed language about actual bills proposed with the people who will actually vote on them. They wouldn't be able to get away with vague generalities about very important issues.
Each candidate would have to run the gauntlet alone, but it would weed out the faint of heart, and whoever survived would be well prepared for debates with Dems.
Thanks xzins...his PAC is like a lot of them, depending on the big donors...I’ll be curious to see when his SEC reports come out if the same names appear...
>> Gingrich: ...which requires every uninsured citizen to purchase or acquire health insurance.
I think Gingrich is secretly working for Ron Paul.
Exactly what I thought.
You mention Christie and Huntsman, but where's Bachmann? (Hiding with Waldo?)
(Just D@mn, that Pelosi dame must've really been smokin' HAWT on that couch they shared.)
Great idea. People certainly should be responsible for their own healthcare.
But, if the solution is for the government to mandate that everybody must buy health insurance, not so great.
Instead, why don't we make it possible for everybody to afford health insurance...and let it go at that?
Well I must be a Troll because I don’t seem to be asleep. Report me to the troll police. Whatever happens, happens. Be sure to send my death certificate to Fairbanks. Thanks
Newt is delusional to think he has ANY chance. Maybe he knows that and is bitter enough to act as a spoiler.
And Clinton debated at sucking: "It depends what the meaning of the word 'is' is."
People don't vote for successful debaters.
Especially not MASTER debators.
Newt Responds to Climate Depot! A Love-Fest is Now Called A Debate?! Gingrich now claims sitting on cozy sofa with Pelosi in Gore climate ad was actually a debate
I am not overlooking Cain. I personally like him very much. I just don’t think he could beat obama at this point. But who knows? A year and a half is along time and I am willing to listen and learn.
IF Sarah doesn’t run.
PS, a Palin/Cain ticket wouldn’t be too shabby either. But Palin/West....unbeatable. Period.
Exactly! And the ‘rats are using his pride because they have alot on him. He wants to play ball so bad, he’ll sell the country to do it. Newt is our enemy - no one can be mistaken about this. NY23 was just another example.
Thanks for reminding me about that highly embarrassing episode. I'd almost forgotten it.
Since he left office, I've never considered Newt much more than an establishment Republican insider. In the last couple of years, I've demoted him from even that low station.
While I admire and respect his long-ago accomplishments, he's frankly lost his way, and is in no way fit to be our president.
“But Palin/West....unbeatable. Period”
I’m praying for that
And that’s the rub ... Obamacare replaces the current insurance system with an exchange and the like...Gingrich’s belief is basically keeping private insurance but subsidizing the poor’s portion...world of difference between the two...
You would know if you were asleep but you don’t know that Newt is the biggest RINO and an ego to match. Why don’t you know that? It is NOT hidden.
I love Michelle Bachmann, but she has not announced and I doubt that she would be drafted. and face it, tough as she is, Palin IS the Mama Grizzly. I don’t think Bachmann could win the nomination, although she would get a sizeable portion of TEA Party votes....IF Sarah doesn’t run.
I actually think that Bachmann is part of the reason Sarah has held back. She is giving her chance to shine, but it ain’t working for her. If it was/did, I think Sarah might have stayed back but I don’t see it happening for Michelle.
to send the whole pack packing - and obummer into a full blown narcissistic melt down.
Sorry, but Newt's not going to be able to get the toothpaste back in the tube. Too late.
A man in Massachusetts called in to the Savage show the other day and said he pays for his own insurance - with a $10,000 deductible - and has the $10,000 set aside in a separate account for just that.
Mass. says NO. and is fining him in lieu of buying Romney Care.
It's not medical coverage they want - it's total control.
this 3,000+ page bill has much more to do with other controls over our lives than it does medical care. That is only the smoke screen.
“A conservative woman and a conservative black is the ticket...”
Black ain’t got nothing to do with it. West is a MILITARY hero. He put his men before himself and his career. He has honor and honesty and integrity that shines like the freakin’ sun! He’s an AMERICAN and PROUD of it. Besides that he KNOWS what islam is and does upside, downside, inside, and outside. The man is a MAN like I have not seen in our political system for a very long time. And I TRUST him. How many politicians can you say that about?
Good to discuss Eh!
Right. He just tore John Kerry apart in their global warming debate. And by "tore John Kerry apart" I mean "just told John Kerry he was right about everything." That's exactly what we need to put up against Obama.
I think he’s a champion of his own career and little else. Beware those sorts of “conservatives”. There have been an endless supply of them.
Newt’s a con man - and he conned you. Proud that you can be taken in by such a low life whose intent is to deceive?
One would think that after all the many years of liberals jerking Newt's chain he would learn NOT to get lost on 'details'. He could have simply said 'health care' should always remain in the private sector. The federal government has NO constitutional authority to be mandating any individual or groups to purchase 'government' controlled programs. But we are so close to single payer socialized medicine I do not see US ever going back.
Is Newt a Democrat now? He has lost my support if this indeed is true!
Screen, tell me who you have. You folks can attack me to death but a post turtle isn’t needed this go around.
Wrong. Who do you think reimburses the hospitals for the uninsured, including illegal aliens? The unreimbursed costs of treating illegal aliens have shut down many hospitals and ERs near the border.
Stick a fork in this fornicating asshole. He’s done.
Support for the individual mandate is one of those things, like Trump’s support for the Kelo decision, that’s an absolute deal breaker.
