1998 was the last year that Gingrich, Paul and Santorum were all in Congress. Gingrich’s annual and lifetime ACU ratings were far better than both of the others:

100% - Gingrich: Annual 1998 ACU Rating (90% Lifetime Rating as of 1998) 88% - Paul: Annual 1998 ACU Rating (88% Lifetime Rating as of 1998) 84% - Santorum: Annual 1998 ACU Rating (83% Lifetime Rating as of 1998)

OBJECTIVE data vs. subjective political endorsement.

Newt is the objective data winner. Mitt is the subjective schmooze winner.

I don’t care about 1998. I want 2011. Newt would NOT get 100 percent for 2010 and 2011 for sure. I know he is not in office, but he has become way moderate to liberal since 1998.

That’s part of the reason I’ve been so shocked, in the 2000s, that Newt drank the Gore-Bal Warming Kool-Aid, plumped for ethanol subsidies and took about $1.5M from Freddy Mac. He’s just gotten more liberal on a number of issues, and for a man in his 60s, that’s troubling.

Ron Paul gets an 88 for voting “wrong” on 3 out of 10 votes. But was he wrong?

He got dinged for Vote #10, on a constitutional amendment that failed. His explanation is here:

http://www.ronpaularchive.com/1998/06/religious-freedom-found-in-following-constitution/

I don’t think there is anything unconservative about his position on it.

Then he gets dinged for voting against the Child Custody protection Act. His explanation is here, and is a conservative argument:

http://ronpaulquotes.com/chapters/1998-77.html

The last “wrong” vote was against a Dick Armey voucher program for DC schools. Ron Paul’s conservative argument against vouchers is here:

http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul132.html

In short, the ACU rating is for dummies.

The fact that Newt’s lifetime ACU rating was 90 is evidence that his voting record over his two decades in Congress was overwhelmingly conservative. But the fact that Newt had a 100 ACU rating in 1998 tells us next to nothing, since Newt was Speaker that year and the Speaker very rarely votes unless there’s a tie. I wouldn’t be surprised if the only 1998 votes scored by the ACU in which Newt participated were regarding the Clinton impeachment.

Bottom line Paul voted against this:
10. RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AMENDMENT. HJRes78 (roll call vote 201). Passage of the joint resolution to propose a constitutional amendment to guarantee an individual’s right to pray and recognize his religious beliefs on public property, including schools. The amendment also would bar governments at any level from requiring anyone to participate in religious activity or to deny benefits on the basis of religion. Rejected 224-203, June 4, 1998. (A two-thirds majority of those present and voting is required to pass a constitutional amendment.) ACU supported the amendment.

And this:
14. TRANSPORTING MINORS FOR ABORTION. HR3682 (roll call vote 280). Passage of the bill to make it a federal crime for anyone other than the parent to transport a minor across state lines with the intent that she obtain an abortion. Passed 276-150, July 15, 1998. ACU supported the legislation.

And this:
23. SCHOOL VOUCHERS. HR4380 (roll call vote 411). Armey (R-TX) amendment to establish a new program to provide education scholarships (”vouchers”) to an estimated 2,000 poor D.C. public school students. Adopted 214-208, August 6, 1998. ACU supported the amendment.

No, she is not "behind Santorum." She merely said that she believes that he may be the next to rise in the polls. She was effusive in her praise of Newt as well, but she did not endorse him.

Sara will not endorse until there are only two in the race.

Indeed, or even later. For all the complaining by some in the politbureau (establishment) I think this is a great way to select a candidate--except for the internecine attacks.

Lots of debates allows poorly funded candidates to remain in the voters' eyes for very little money and gives us an opportunity to see the depth of understanding each candidate has on the issues. It may also provide the opportunity for candidates like Perry recover from his initial stumbling start.

I like being able to see the candidates repeatedly under varying stressful situations--it allows for a thorough vetting process.

Like Sarah, I still haven't made up my mind. I have favorites, but I am not emotionally invested in anyone yet.

In 2011, Newt’s positions in the most important topics:
- supports Amnesty (”legalization of illegals”)
- supports Global Warming scam
- supports individual mandate in ObamaCare
- bashes conservatives (”radical rightwing social engineering”, supports Dede in NY23)

His conservative rating in key topics is zero. Even Romney is better in these. If somebody wants to have non-mormon version of more liberal Romney, Newt is your man.

12 is a lot more than I would have guessed. My recollection was that Newt voted very infrequently when he was Speaker—maybe ACU scored a lot of votes that were expected to be close so Newt voted in them.

You owe Sudetenland an apology. The quote that so offended you was not from him, he was making a reply to the quote (thus, the italics). The original quote, BTW, was dripping with sarcasm.

Civility is SORELY lacking on FR these days. There will no doubt be more purges for those who lack restraint or promote the wrong candidate. :(

You know what? I do owe you an apology. I missed the quotation marks and with sincere humility ask for your forgiveness. We all make mistakes and I see now my remarks were meant for someone else. You and I probably are in agreement on much of what is being said about the candidates.
