Sadly, even conservatives often take a liberal position on something somewhere.
President Reagan gave amnesty to illegals, and it may have been the worse thing he ever did (I believe he acknowledged that the democrats lied to him to get it).
Bizarre as it may sound, its rare to get a 100% conservative in any race, they usualy cherry pick something to drift on.
Uh, do you think Reagan would do it again NOW if he were a candidate? Of course not. But Newt IS!
