Constitutionalists don't DO "Social Engineering." We want to draw down government, and return responsibility to individuals. That is why Gingrich's comments are sooo galling. We have over $200 Trillion in unfunded debts & entitlements coming up. This is not time to continue vague "discussions." We need to get behind a solid fiscal plan for controlling public costs NOW. The whole point of Ryan's plan is to manage massive promised entitlements and reduce them to reasonable levels before we immediately go BK. Newt's also jealous of Ryan because he offers significantly better 'optics.' Hope my husband doesn't catch me writing that... ; )

Newt is what happens when you keep trading wives and the current one is not very smart.

Bennett reminded me all morning of a father with a daughter that's dating someone he doesn't care for and regardless of what his daughter says about her date or how the kid comes across it pretty clear dad's not going to be happy.

It honestly sounded to me like Bill Bennett is backing Rick Santorum or Paul Ryan and his beef with Newt was that he felt Newt wasn't giving them the respect Bennett gives them.

I'll commend you for figuring out early on that so much of the "conservative" media was in the tank for a specific candidate and, no different from the liberal media, trying to give the candidates they didn't like a hard time while pretending to be "objective." We didn't know at the time that Bennett was for Romney, but it certainly became clear when he went on to talk down Santorum and so many of his fellow RINO radio hosts like Hewitt and Medved became even more enthusiastic Romney spokespeople.
