- Global Warming scam and he pushed government regulation of everything already in the 1990s
- individual mandate in health care
- accuses Ryan of right-wing social engineering
- horribly mismanaged Congress when GOP finally gained power
He has been good in friendly debates, but given that he lost badly to John Kerry (!) in Lincoln-Douglas style debate few years ago, I’m not sure he would fare better against O either.
For me, his fanatical on your face attitude for amnesty was the final nail in the coffin. If we give up amnesty, then there is not much to do anymore. In the end, 100M illegals legalized, and even more would try to sneak in given the amnesty idea.
Any GOP nominee would be better.
I would never, in any circumstance vote for Newt. I would vote even for Paul or Romney before them. In general election, I would stay home rather than to vote that amnesty hack.
That did it for me also. Amnesty is a deal killer, I don't care who the candidate is.
