I was a big Newt supporter and, as a conservative posting on a conservative website, I appreciate that we are not statist ostriches who stick our heads in the sand. We can handle the truth. I had never heard of MEK before today, so I cannot confidently express an opinion about it. I do know that Mr. Fisher does not disclose that the EU removed MEK from its terrorist list. I can also say that I watched the entire video and Newt does an excellent job, including a condensed version of how Washington and his troops saved this experiment.

1. Shaking Hands does not equal bowing
2. All of the Muslim terrorists I know frown on women shaking hands with non relatives.
3. If Obama had been president in 1961, he likely would have labeled refugees from Cuba as terrorists, and send them to Gitmo until Castro decided where to put them.

As far as him being hypocritical (as the article states) with his past criticism of Obama’s bowing tendencies, there is a difference when it comes to the proper protocol of a president versus that of an individual. The former is representative of an entire nation, and as such needs to take special care not to be seen as placing himself (his nation) in a position of subservience, even if only for a moment, even if only as a seemingly meaningless gesture.

Not a big Newt fan, but I don’t see the big deal here. He couldn’t shake her hand (customs), so he bowed. And is she really a “terrorist” because she used to be part of the Ayatollah’s posse? Today, her group OPPOSES the Mullahs who are the enemy. The enemy of my enemy....etc. Duh. Also, this is in The Atlantic, home of that double-gated douchebag Andrew Sullivan. ‘Nuff said.

LOL! The Ahmadinejad government and the mad mullahs of Iran define the MEK as “terrorists”

Now what does that tell you?

(the West has been supporting the MEK (very limited) for years as a way to stick it to the Iranian govt that was killing our soldiers in Iraq with IED’s amng other bad things ...too bad so sad)

who also heads an officially designated terrorist group called MEK.

You might want to understand who "officially" designated this a terrorist group before you throw Newt under the ass kissing terrorist bus...

Memo to Mittwits:

Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Sarah Palin are not running for president in 2012, so you can stop demonizing them now. Why not turn some of the vitriol you have for conservatives on socialists Obama and the Democrats?
