The only person on this thread who is whining is you. Whining, insulting others and throwing a tantrum. I don't know about anyone else, but to me that isn't a convincing argument.

Did I mention crude language? Yes, that's apparently your style as well.

Cain’s problems are fixable, Newt’s are not.

Newt should just stand firm and move on. The MSM will find some other item to try to smear him on by next week. Now that they have totally trashed Herman Cain they can concentrate on Gingrich.

Just think what would have happened if the MSM had spent as much time investigating Barry Soetoro.

Day 48 Of The FReepathon
Do you Know Why?

There are loyal posters that donate every FReepathon. Some donate several times during every 'thon. But others never donate. Why?

1 My enemies haven't been zotted.
2 The owner doesn't support my candidate.
3 FR won't "upgrade" to "Like" buttons and blinky crap.
4 Someone else will donate.
5 My friend was zotted.
6 I lost my job and have no income.

Only one of those is a legitimate reason.

Support It Or Lose It

I’m surprised that you’ve been here since 1997.

No one is “forcing” you to do anything. Take responsibility.

Consulting for Freddie Mac at $177K per year, is something quite short of “scandal”.

The scandal isn't consulting. There's no shame in that. The scandal is that he took the job to convince conservatives that Fannie Mae's housing policies were good for the nation.

So really what this whole bogus kerfuffle is about is the fact that the Democrats, and a lot of people on FR, can tie the Gingrich name to Freddie Mac.

He was PAID $1.6 million by Freddie Mac. That certainly does "tie" him to them.

Big freaking deal.

Perhaps it wasn't. But perhaps it was. But Newt's claim that he was consulted for his "historical" perspective is ridiculous. No one believes that. It is absurd. Big companies pay ex-Reps for ACCESS and INFLUENCE. Fredie hired 4 ex-Reps, including Gingrich. Did they want Vin Weber for his "history" chops too? If Newt really stands by that claim - LET'S SEE IT.

Not to mention the fact that it was 10 years ago.

Wow. 2008 was 10 years ago? Time sure does fly.

Stick a fork in Newt

This is a lot more serious than the attacks on Herman.

Gingrich was first hired as a private citizen by Freddie Mac from 1999-2002. Ten years ago. The time frame you’re whining about him being an “historian” for Freddie. Seems to me that the first doubts about Fannie and Freddie’s solvency were brought up about the same time Gingrich left their employ in 2002. Some influence he had at that time.

Then he was hired again in 2006 - 2008 for $300K a year. That worked out real well for Freddie again too, didn’t it? Democrats won the elections in 2006 and swept the House and the Senate. So unless the Democrats have a secret love affair for Newt I seriously doubt he had much influence with a Democrat congress over Fannie and Freddie during the time of his last employment with them.
