Gingrich Calls for Regime Change in Iran
The Wall Street Journal ^ | 11-23-2011 | Patrick O'Connor

Posted on 11/23/2011 6:44:52 PM PST by TitansAFC

WASHINGTON—Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich called for replacing the leadership of Iran and said that could be accomplished within a year, adopting a more aggressive posture toward the U.S. adversary than advocated by the rest of the Republican field or by President Barack Obama.

Mr. Gingrich's comments came at a televised candidates' debate Tuesday night at a moment when multiple polls showed him leading in the race for his party's nomination. The eight candidates offered sharp distinctions over a range of national-security issues, among them the proper speed of the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan and continued foreign aid to Pakistan....

LOL Desperate, Fred, desperate.

Cain backers have run out of friends after their assassinations of every other candidate and anyone who supports them. Just ask the Bachmann and Perry supporters.’

Cain is down to his hardcores and noone else. Maybe he should try getting the NAACP’s endorsement again.

So Gingrich is pro-amnesty and wants to continue the Bush/Obama doctrine is wasting endless billions promoting endless wars overseas while America goes bankrupt.

This kind of big government statist nonsense passes for a real conservative. When are people going to wake up?

What a disaster.

Yeah, the Newt haters are out in full force today. Bachman flat out lies about what Newt said, and Romney picks it up (but the Newt haters wont admit that Michelle is a stalking horse for Mitt!), and suddenly whoa, that is the big “gaff” of the debate.

Meanwhile, Bachman leaks classified information about Pakistan ... crickets

Herman Cain once again shows he is in the deep end of the pool and his rubber duckie is leaking air ... crickets
(I am sorry, but in no way is this guy qualified to be president ... he is beyond clueless about foreign policy)

Mittens talks for 3 friggin minutes on every answer and still says nothing ... crickets
(Hey, did anyone take note of what Mittens said to do to the illegals ... yeah, me neither ... because his position is the same as Cain and Palin and just about everyone else ... we cant get rid of them all, and we need to figure out how to handle it ... at least Newt laid out a way to deal with it that is NEITHER AMNESTY NOR CITIZENSHIP ... )

Newt's leadership is already on the table...and he's putting Iran on notice....won't it be interesting how Obama handles this...Newt's stepping out on several "ledges" and indirectly/directly challenging Obama to act...or take Newt's "heat".....I love it!

Nice try but doesn’t fade most a bit Fred. The ships got to turn and Newts the one who has the experience and can accomplish that feat above all others we have to choose from. He will make for a fine President.

It appears you aren't seeing or hearing to well BD...Newt is 'not for citizenship' of illegals which Amnesty is.

Yes indeed he did...and even leaves it open for people to offer tweaking or and other solutions to make certain it gets accomplished...and that in the right way.

BTW Bachman didn't leak information for it is online about the six attempts....but it's grey if or not these were actual attacks on nuclear sites....but there were six just as she said....but her statment was already out there.

I'm sure after this latest debate the other candidates are going to be busy with more details of their own plans..it tthey have them.

Its all about Cain here now from top down with a few Perry folks having prayer sessions and Hail Marys

Newt supporting is like being a virgin at a pagan funeral

Buckle up...bound to be a rough ride

Truth and reason are under the bus this season

Ive gone Palin, Bachmann,Perry,Newt

Still prefer Bachmann ideologically but she is out...

Exactly. With Gingrich we can Bush II, just a more glib version. How many more setbacks can conservatism take?
