But we want purity here at FR, which we never get anyway, and what we're going to end up with is Obama for 4 more years and COMPLETE amnesty. We're a clever sort, aren't we?
Newt's dead? No, the country is dead if we re-elect the Chicago disaster to another term.
That pretty well says it all.

I’m usually right with you on this kind of thing, to the point that JimRob and other “purists” attack me vehemently.
But in the case of Newt, this is not just about Amnesty — though on that topic he is tipping his hand on plans that are FAR from a “realistic” view and much more of a Progressive or Neocon view than most of us here would tolerate. But with Newt, the reality is, he would compromise on his principles — ALL of them — each and every Conservative principle, until there was NO PRINCIPLE left, only a pragmatic WASHINGTON (District of Corruption) POLICY that preserved the place of BIG [Central] Government but sold the principles, the Constituion, the States and We the People, down the river — but kept the Washington Elite in their place of Privilege.
This is what I feared from Newt. He’s sounded really good for 2-3 weeks, but I was WAITING for his condescending talk down to us, as though WE Conservatives are INHUMANE for wishing LAWS to be OBEYED. I’m not OPPOSED to realistic solutions — I’m opposed to politicians who portray ME as somehow morally deficient or “heartless” because I EXPECT OTHERS to actually MAKE THOSE LAWS a REALITY — which Newt would NOT do. He has demonstrated that, by his attitude.
I’m glad for his reminder of who he really is, and I’m glad I didn’t jump on his bandwagon. Now back to looking for the closest thing to a REAL Constitutional Conservative in the race (it would have been so much easier if THE Constitutional Conservative had just run... But I still love Sarah anyway)
