Al gotsta keep his face in da news and his palms greased with Benjamins. Just keepin it real. Know whut ah’m sayin?
A little 'drive by' attack on Newt, eh? Seems that is a regular part of your posting history.
Here's some facts about Newt promoting education reform (that's a GOOD and needed thing) ....
Gingrich applauded Obama for showing "real courage on the issue of charter schools." Obama wants to increase the number of charter schools, which have a controversial history and are a divisive issue for his party's base.
Yes, Newt should have known better that 0 is a total liar and owned by the Teacher's unions that would never let this happen. But what Newt was promoting, the increase of and financial support for charter schools, was right and conservative.
Condi Rice is incompetent. Another affirmative action appointment like Powell. And she has sucked up to Obama big time. Read the books by Rumsfeld and Cheney and you will see how poorly she performed.
Pandering?! Seriously? Newt will tell them all in person what he told Juan on national TV. Newt is not afraid of the race-baiters and is willing to debate them, which is surely not pandering to them.
Oh man, what a ticket!
We are supposed to be a party that doesn't view people through the prism of race and victim classes. You only lose when you "debate" idiots like this. Sharpton is a tax cheat who owes the government $2.6 million. And he should be in jail for his role as a racial arsonist in the Freddie's Fashion Mart incident.
Gingrich is supposed to be running for President not debater in chief.
LOL! Then challenge him to a series of Lincoln Douglas style debates.
¨Resist we much....¨
Now there´s a maze of racist code language.
Is Sharpton the same person who was violating rent control laws in NYC by using rent-controlled units for offices? 4 or 5?
Is he the same person who had a car parked for free for YEARS in Congressional parking garage? I do mean YEARS.
Is this the same person who had condos he owned in the Carribbean rented out & ne never reported the income?
I might have the wrong Dem crook-—there are so many of them. It’s hard to keep track of them all & no one is printing a program for those of us who are not on the inside ring of their follies.
Why “race baited”? Why doesn’t he meet with JC , Walter Williams, or Thomas Sowell
A rose by any name would smell the same.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) (the new name for the federal Food Stamp Program) helps low-income individuals and families buy the food they need for good health. Although SNAP is the national name, your state may use a different name.
“That Black mans mind is so messed up that he will never get it. He just does not understand the message that Newt was trying to convey. He has been on the dimoKKKRAT plantation to long.”
He is but one of millions who feel exactly the same way.
What can be expected from a people who have been bombarded with the propaganda from the day they’re born that they live in a “racis’” world, perpetrated by each and every white, and that the only way they can get ahead is by affirmative action which by design must push aside others so they can have their place?
Having written that, what on earth does Gingrinch hope to gain from a meeting with Sharpton? Wake up, Newt!
Here we go again.
You've got to do a lot of selective forgetting and revisionist history with Newt.
Btw, Michael Steele when head of RNC was thoroughly vilified on this forum when it was rumored RNC made a donation to Sharpton. It was never documented or proven, but that didn't make any difference because of the opportunity to bash Steele.
Thank you, but there is an audience out there for the Marjoe-type of show he puts on. He's good at the sound bite, the catchy phrase, whatever red meat will appeal to the audience of the moment and sway the crowd EMOTIONALLY.
For all that Newt poses as a professor or intellectual, his effect is emotional and he knows it and he works it.
Now that I could endorse. Otherwise, Newt has no business meeting with anyone. He should have responded that he is a bit busy winning the Republican nomination so the man who approached him could get a job — and a life.
Isn’t it odd that when he said “poor children” everyone on the left assumed it was poor BLACK children he was speaking of instead of any other race? I mean never mind that we are on the 3rd and 4th generation where everyone in the family has always been on welfare and no one has ever known anyone who has had a job.Newt told the truth there are many out there that know no one who have ever worked....the left is stuck on race.
Sharpton won't shut up until the day he dies. Maybe not even then.
I used to do that too and it allowed me to keep the $$ my Mom gave me for lunch.Back then lunch was only .75 but after 5 days that $3.50 added to my $5 allowance gave me a little extra. If I save 2 weeks I really had a lot of money for a 12yo!
