If you find FR so repugnant, please leave. Have no intention of changing to please your delicate sensitivities. Go chat on facebook.

Don’t take this the wrong way but, what the hell would you know about the “old soul” of FR?

Gingrich proposes to make them do their JOB instead of legislating from the bench.


Wrong. He said as President HE will be the final word of what is Constitutional or not, not the SC. He has said that as President, he would have the authority to ignore any SC ruling he didn’t like. He has said Congress could abolish certain courts altogether. He has said if federal judges make a ruling he doesn’t like, said judges should be hauled into Congress to explain themselves, and if they don’t appear, they should be arrested. Yes, indeed, Gingrich would do away with the Founding Fathers system of govt.

Back that up with a link.

I've heard him speak on this several times and NEVER heard him say anything that remotely sounds like what you claim.

I notice that you didn't deny that SCOTUS is out of control.

Your "paraphrase" is over-reaching.

Newt Gingrich says he'd defy Supreme Court rulings he opposed

Newt Gingrich says as president he would ignore Supreme Court decisions that conflicted with his powers as commander in chief,

snip

Relying on those precedents, Gingrich said that if he were in the White House, he would not feel compelled to always follow the Supreme Court's decisions on constitutional questions. As an example, he cited the court's 5-4 decision in 2008 that prisoners held by the U.S. at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had a right to challenge their detention before a judge.

I’ve read every post on this thread. This is what I thought would happen - Romneybots will sign up to praise Romney with the ole “anyone but Obama” routine - “at least he’s better than Obama”.

Obamabots will sign up to say “vote third party”, or “write-in” to keep Freepers from voting for Romney.

Then, there are some of us who think - I won’t vote for anyone who is the exact opposite of my values - economic values, self protection values, defense of country values, Christian values. That’s it in concrete. Romneybots and Obamabots won’t affect me and many others.

Those of you who respond to zots with graphics, you will be busy.

“Former Bush Attorneys General Call Gingrich Position on Courts ‘Dangerous’”

“Two former attorneys general under President George W. Bush have found a few things to like in Newt Gingrich’s position paper on reining in the authority of the federal courts, but other parts, they say, are downright disturbing.”

“Some of the ideas are “dangerous, ridiculous, totally irresponsible, outrageous, off-the-wall and would reduce the entire judicial system to a spectacle,” said former Attorney General Michael Mukasey.”

Your first link comes up as error! FOX NEWS probably was FORCED to remove THEIR LIES!!

And Newt’s site and he says the EXACT OPPOSITE of what you accuse him of! You fail big time!

Do you even know that the founding fathers never set up a ‘a job for life’ for judges! Get educated and stop spreading lies about Newt. You must support LIAR mitt.

You have consistently ignored the point that the courts are out of control. You have also consistently attacked the messenger, first Gingrich and now us.

The courts ARE out of control. Tell us how YOU would reign them in if not impeachment and ignoring their unconstitutional edicts.

Respond to what is posted. Personal attacks will be ignored and taken as confirmation that you cannot refute the points being made.

Nothing about Romney's record supports your position or Romney's current words.

Add in Romney's continual practice of lying about his own record, and continually lying about the real conservatives in the race, and why any sincere conservative would believe his words on this issue is beyond belief.


Romney nominated 27 extreme left-wing, Progressive Liberals out of 36 nominations.

Legal analysts say candidate Romney is different from Gov. Romney.

Liberty Counsel Action Vice President Matt Barber said Romney’s appointments were constitutional “living document” poster children.

“Many of Romney’s appointments were not only liberal, not only Democrats, but were radical counter-constitutionalists. How on earth can we expect that, as president, he would be any different?” Barber asked rhetorically.

“Actions speak louder than words, and Mitt Romney’s actions as governor scream from the rooftops that he cannot be trusted with this most important of presidential responsibilities.”

Barber cites two specific examples of Romney’s radical appointments.

“As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney not only failed in this regard, he appointed a number of very liberal, if not radical, ‘living, breathing’-minded judges to the bench,” Barber said.

“Two that come to mind were extreme homosexualists Marianne C. Hinkle and Stephen Abany,” he said. “They both had a long history of pro-gay activism, yet Romney didn’t hesitate to put them on the bench.”

“These are people who outrageously believe the postmodern notion that newfangled ‘gay rights’ trump our constitutionally guaranteed First Amendment rights,” he said.

Baldwin agreed, citing Romney’s statements about the two requirements he actually used when selecting judges.

“Romney did focus on two criteria: their legal experience and whether they would be tough on crime. In other words, the nominee could be a gay activist or a pro-big government, pro-quota, pro-gun control Democrat Party hack who detests every judicial principle treasured by our founding fathers,” Baldwin said. “But if he happens to be tough on crime and have prosecutorial experience, he gets past the Romney filter. Many of Romney’s nominees fit that description.”


How is it that so many of you pimping Romney are so ignorant of his record?

Yup. Me and Judge Bork - “pimping” for Romney:

““No other candidate will do more to advance the conservative judicial movement than Governor Mitt Romney … Governor Romney is committed to nominating judges who take their oath of office seriously and respect the rule of law in our nation.” -Judge Robert Bork in his 2008 endorsement of Mitt Romney”

I’m taken aback by the antipathy towards Romney here on FR. It makes me want to learn more about him, and wonder how I’ve missed the 666 that must be maked on him somewhere, and I don’t pretend to be an expert on him by any means. Up to this point I had regarded him as an unreliable Yankee moderate from Kennedyville in the clothes of a conservative a la Snowe/Brown/Collins, but who is going to be the nominee. I am an expert when it comes to knowing what the African-centered, Liberation Theologist currently in the WH wants to do to the country in the next 4 years. If you do anything to help him, you’re his whore and you will have aided and comforted an enemy of the US. Now let me go read those nice links you took the time to post.

We don't prefer Romney but the alternative party to the Democratic Party needs to be changed at the local level and it will take more than 18 months.

Removing Obama is a start. Romney is just a "necessary evil" and is the only one that can be elected in 2012 now. He's like a CEO that must be influenced by the board or fired later. Anything else is just not going to work for the next few years.

Your property values and the value of the dollar depend on it.

We are Conservative Christians and we want to help replace Obama with the best chance we have under current law. We want to replace as many Democrats as we can in the next election. We want to replace as many liberals in the Republican Party as we can. The Founding Fathers prepared us for these days.

Newt on climate change.

“The climate of opinion varies by region and era” - Me

I’m sorry but this is false. Conservative values and principles are written in stone. They are absolutes.

I did not say conservative values, I said the climate of opinion. Victorian, flappers, Bobby-soxers, hippies, gen-X-ers, tattooed teens, the Goths and the vampire obsessed are just an example of the last 100 years of women.
