Pretty soon, there will be almost no one left.
Almost no one.
I’ve always considered Newt to be interesting to listen to, with SOME good ideas, and that he was/is a total flake. A sprayed fly, as it were.
“Newt needs to go away ...he sees himself as the non Romney guy.. but this history makes me wonder if he is just not Obama in drag.”
I won’t go that far, but I don’t think that conservatives can trust him to the level of Reagan/Cain. Just yesterday, he was interviewed in Houston and said some Illegals should be permitted to stay here...if they have been here a long time and have roots here. He just cannot see sending them home. He also said that it’s his long-standing position.
I’m sorry, but I’m in the ‘heartless’ camp which believes that once you open the door to legalizing people that are now Illegal, you risk three really big things happening:
1) Illegals that STILL look to the United States as a place where they can improve their lives and stay.
2) A future president/Congress loosens the definition of who should be legalized, and you have millions of people staying here.
3) A judge who’s not ‘heartless’ deems that they MUST be allowed to become citizens.
That’s why I want them to go home.
You forgot the “Barf Alert” in the title.
Yes. I read yesterday that, unlike all the Republican candidates who advocate letting the market clean up the housing problem, Newt wants legislation to give banks a way to renegotiate mortgages but still make money.
He is a big-government Republican. I've read a lot of comments on FR recently from people who are looking at him seriously as a presidential candidate. I fear they are judging him solely by his nice talk at the debates and either don't know or have forgotten about his behavior in office.
Newt is as liberal as Mitt Romney in his actions, if not in his words.
I am going to show my age, but back when I was a child (during the Truman and Eisenhower administrations,) the word “peculiar” was used in polite company to mean that hte individual referred to had much in common with Liberace even if he could not play the piano.
