You're an idiot if you think I supported either McCain or Romney.
Romney = RINO
Gingrich = RINO
Paul = problems with his social agenda
Cain = driven out by media
Perry = imploded
Others = polling around 3% at this point
Therefore, 0bama = winner, November 2012.
As some forgettable pundit said the other day, Republicans eat their own. Who needs democrats or even the MSM to trash our people when we do such a great job ourselves.
So who ARE you supporting? Maybe the local drain commissioner has the requisite CV and will be recruited?
The questions began at the candidates’ debate in Michigan last Wednesday, when CNBC’s John Harwood asked Gingrich what he did for a $300,000 contract with Freddie Mac in 2006.
“I offered them advice on precisely what they didn’t do,” Gingrich said last week.
This didn’t make him a lobbyist, he said. And by the strict legal definition of “lobbyist,” he’s absolutely right.
“My advice as a historian, when they walked in and said to me, ‘We are now making loans to people who have no credit history and have no record of paying back anything, but that’s what the government wants us to do’ I said to them at the time, ‘This is a bubble, this is insane, this is impossible,’ “ Gingrich said at last week’s debate.
I guess it’s not a surprise that, you know, someone’s trying to reinvent history in terms of some advice they gave to Freddie Mac.

Bad enough we have to fight the LSM, now we need to battle FReeper zealots too?
Damn, enough of this!
Dude, no matter how you slice it, Newt is a RINO.
haha I agree with ya man! These guys were all over Cain any other conservatives when it suited their own guy. Now they are gonna have their turn and all of a sudden attacks are unfair, already been addressed, etc. They let a good man and conservative twist in the wind and in fact piled on with glee. Now it will be a hoot to see the stone throwers have to dodge the rocks lol
Sure, $1.6M is believable. Freddie and Fannie are great at wasting taxpayer funds. The only unbelievable part is that they gave it to a Republican.
I’ll buy it if you’ll brush up on your cognitive skills.
Indeed....you would think we'd learn over the years. Nah, we're the party of stupid.
Here comes Romney and then we'll all lement.....why?
Hello obama 4 sure!
Freddie already denied this happened.
Psssttt..... Please, keep this our secret.
There is only one reason that I bother to “Cain bash”..... it’s in retaliation to all of the Cain love fest members that bash all of those that don’t support him and all of those that question ANYTHING he does or says. He’s the Holy One and can do no wrong, don’t cha know...
Don’t worry about me, I’ll be okay.
Oh, and it gets me away from my other hobby of burying bodies under my house.
And Paul is an idiot, Cain is a womanizer, Perry is an illeagal alien fan, Mitt, no comment and the others don't have a chance.
Now what, should we just shoot ourselves cause there isn't anyone left?!
Yeah, I've seen a lot of that childish idiocy around here lately.
For a while there, I was thinking Conservatives were actually grown up adults.
Posts like yours make me truly wonder.
Oh, and please don't retaliate, grow up.
Hey idiot, you are right, you did not support McCain or McRomney, you probably voted for Obumbum!
Agree, its late.
So the same rabscuttle385 who spent so much time on FR smearing Sarah Palin is now doing the same to Newt Gingrich? That’s something you have in common with Vichy Republicans (Jennifer Rubin, David Frum, Kathleen Parker, etc.).
So good of you to do the Dems’ dirty work for them.
No, I didn't.
I voted for an actual third-party conservative in 2008.
Really? How? Or maybe quite a few of her supporters didn't like the heavily-documented reminders of her treachery in Arizona in the 2010 elections?
The truth hurts, man.
