In other words Newt, we’re heartless. We’ve heard that before.

“I'm prepared to take the heat in saying: Let's be humane in enforcing the law."

I seriously doubt that he has any idea of the magnitude of the heat he brought down on himself tonight.

Well, since the law hasn’t been enforced much, starting somewhere is a good start, no?.

It will not be surprising if the ticket has Newt in the VP slot.

Where are all the people who were criticizing Perry for having a more conservative immigration stance than Newt?

>> he said. “I’m prepared to take the heat in saying: Let’s be humane in enforcing the law.”

Newt’s being a dick by implying the Conservative goal involves inhumane treatment of illegal aliens.

I was on the fence, but now I can comfortably say adios to Newt. We don’t need any more “Compassionate Conservatives” bending over for the left; that’s what put us into this hole. I don’t know who will get my vote in the primary, but I know one who will not.

Oh BS, “control the border’ How long have both parties been saying this, yet it continues Keep on making exceptions based on selfish political purposes, and then once the point of no return is reached, then what

The borders could have been controlled decades ago. People here legally are still expected to obey the law, the paperwork, the timelines . . . yet people of all classes continue to game the system with border crossings, fake marriages and the like and the rest of us poor souls are just supposed to grin and bear it

Get out here, Newt, with the real world and see what it’s like to deal with this.

IOW, only enforce laws Newt feels good about. Ignore the rest.

That is why I rank Newt with Mitt. Newt talks better than Mitt, but neither has a conservative heart. If either wins the nomination, you’ll see them shift left with blazing speed. They are politicians at heart. Period.

He’s not alone.

Cain, Perry, Gingrich, well.....everyone but Bachmann, really......have called for “reasonable” or “humane” ways to deal with the “11 million illegals already here.” Every one of them wants non-deportation without amnesty for some of the illegals already here.

At least he actually talked about who he’d deport. Bachmann, too. This has got to be the first campaign we’ve actually seen that.

I do not believe that the people of the United States are going to take people who’ve been here for a quarter of a century … [and] separate them from their families and expel them”

As an American citizen, I would toss them in a minute. As for separating them from their families, I would not. I would send the entire family back to the countries they came from. The children born here can come back when they are of age.

I thought it was kinda funny that he went from talking tough and saying we can’t compromise with the left to seeking compromise on the border.

He also sets up a straw man with the 25 years, etc., then acts nobler than thou in slapping it down. It was all an artifice intended to make the Republican mainstream look heartless.

Gingrich does not care about being “humane.” He is just obeying his masters.

So you would deport American citizens as part of your immigration plan?

The longer they’ve been here ILLEGALY, the more they’ve compounded their crime. They should be the first to get the boot, along with their anchors.

When you think about it that makes more sense that giving amnesty to foreign invaders sucking down our resources and tax dollars.

Plus he is advocating a strategy that equals certain death for the Republican party, as has already happened in California.

I didn’t see this debate, but this doesn’t sound good.

I’m more troubled though by him taking that 1.6 million from FNMA and Freddie Mac. That just reeks of insider and playoffs.

I guess I thought Newt was cleaner than that.

A crime is a crfime no matter how long ago someone committed it. Anyone who came here illegally for any reason whatsoever, the rule of law must prevail! Or we become a rule of men, which is the fast route to destruction.

He may be a good debater,but that is no indication of what kind of a president this egomaniacal flip floppling amnesty loving phoney would make.

As Judy Holiday once said in a movie, , “I can’t stan’ ‘im”!

Give amnesty to American tax protesters before giving it to foreign invaders. Gingrich is "inhumane" if he does not.
