RE-ELECT OBAMA: VOTE NEWT!January 25, 2012To talk with Gingrich supporters is to enter a world where words have no meaning. They denounce Mitt Romney as a candidate being pushed on them by "the Establishment" -- with "the Establishment" defined as anyone who supports Romney or doesn't support Newt.
Gingrich may have spent his entire life in Washington and be so much of an insider that, as Jon Stewart says, "when Washington gets its prostate checked, it tickles [Newt]," but he is deemed the rebellious outsider challenging "the Establishment" -- because, again, "the Establishment" is anyone who opposes Newt.
This is the sort of circular reasoning one normally associates with Democrats, people whom small-town pharmacists refer to as "drug seekers" and Ron Paul supporters.
Newtons claim Romney is a "moderate," and Gingrich the true conservative -- a feat that can be accomplished only by refusing to believe anything Romney says ... and also refusing to believe anything Gingrich says.
-- Romney's one great "flip-flop" is on abortion. (I thought the reason we argued with people about abortion was to try to get them to "flip-flop" on this issue. Sometimes it works!)
Nearly two decades ago, when Romney was trying to defeat champion desecrator of life Sen. Teddy Kennedy, he sought to remove abortion as a campaign issue by declaring that he, too, supported Roe v. Wade.
(Nonetheless, Kennedy ran a campaign commercial against him featuring a Mormon woman complaining that Romney, as a Mormon elder, had pressured her not to have an abortion, but to give the child up for adoption. Are you getting the idea that Massachusetts is different from the rest of America, readers?)
Romney changed his mind on abortion -- not when it was politically advantageous, but when it mattered. As governor of liberal, pro-choice Massachusetts, he vetoed an embryonic stem cell bill and "worked closely" with Massachusetts Citizens for Life. The president of MCL recently issued a statement saying that, "since being elected governor, Mitt Romney has had a consistent commitment to the culture of life." Read More »
She is a lawyer making decent arguments that would score points in a Cornell debate class.
Her arguments look better on paper that coming out of her mouth.
In the real world, decisions are not made deciding which lawyer made the best debate points or wrote the best written arguments.
The choice comes down to trust.
There are a lot of reasons not to trust Newt, but that number is relatively small when compared to all the reasons not to trust Mitt.
I simply trust a shrewd Southern career politician with all his baggage more than I trust some slick carpetbagging politician and corporate raider from Massachusetts, Utah, or Michigan or from wherever the dickens the guy is from.
Slick Mitt simply only matches up well with slick Barry in a pillow fight.
Newt is accused of being a bomb thrower and when the Dems are you opponents, you need a carpet bomber not a carpetbagger.
I would also like to see more reasoned debate, instead of shouting “FU” to everyone who disgrees with the majority.
More light and less heat, please.
We are all coservatives here, or so I’d like to think.
The fact you deliberately chose a doctored glossy glamour shot from theatlanticwire.com for this thread speaks volumes about you and your motives.
yea Ann that’s right you just go with your homosexuals , cross dressers etc and you go for Mitt and you enjoy your elitist parties with them.
Hey Ann you’ve been inside the beltway and the north east too much
Probably still debating which part of Obamacare to eliminate and which parts he is still in love with.
As always, you nail it. The season is still young. She will make sure we have the most Conservative candidate at the front.
In Sept 2008 she had McSlime up about 8 points over the one. before Romney's slugs inside the campaign (Schmidt, Nicole Wallace) worked overtime to destroy her.
If it's Newt, she will campaign very hard for him (while at the same time, there will be Freepers who will insult and demean her efforts)
Coulter will be blabbing the whole time that Newt will lose, that Newt will lose.
You might want to listen to what he had to say...I believe it is posted at C-SPAN...it doesn't run very long.
Hey, thanks! Named for one of my inventions. See http://www.earglasses.com/old.htm
I plan to put a new and improved model on the market as soon as the new patent comes through.
“Serious question, how is he going to pay for the huge build up of the Space Program that such a mission would require?”
Well, he could abolish the EPA, DOT, NEA, DOE, BAFTE, DOC, DOI...what have I missed?
The DOE has a bleeding SWAT team. What the hell does DOE need a SWAT team for? Bureaucratic overreach is a serious problem.
He could also revive the economy with serious reductions in taxes and regulations, which would produce a Laffer curve.
“Newt just said he wants a base on the Moon flying an American flag by the end of his second term...what does Anns honey-pie have planned?”
His own planet of course.
D'oh! How did I miss that one?
I love a good yarn too, but I am still waiting to hear from any of the candidates a detailed explanation of what we are to do about our huge debt. It seems like everyone in D.C. or trying to get to D.C. is in denial about federal debt. Guess they all skipped math in college, lol.
What Anne and other Romney supporters ignore is that if Romney wins the nomination the left is guaranteed a general election win.
Here's a more capable debater because he's speaking from his heart and studied what he loves best - AMERICA! And he knows what to say to 'Americans' - and they know truth when they hear it. And he was third in line to be president, he has executive experience along with running his own company - and balancing the budget FOR AMERICA.
Give it up Ann.
I guess Coulter is a fan of Obamacare then since Romney has NO plans on repealing it..Coulter has shown her true colors
What is so disappointing about Ann and her mouth, which presumably is attached to her brain, is that she is calling conservatives stupid. Well, Ann, I am older than you are. I remember the Reagan revolution, and who said and did what. Newt, being at that time a younger man and not as temperate as he could have been (and what younger person has not learned this through experience? ... Ann, are you listening?), was nevertheless clearly a strong supporter of Reagan and Reagan’s conservative philosophy before, during, and after his presidency. Did he disagree at times? Yes. Did others of Reagan’s supporters do the same at times? Yes. But by and large Newt and Reagan were agreed.
Romney said, more times than once, that he is not a Reagan conservative.
So, who am I to believe? I will take Romney at his word, repeated many times. And this is only reinforced by his demeanor, his tentativeness in giving answers to basic questions. People are not stupid. They may not be paying attention all the time (but many are now) and they may be susceptible to delusion, whether of their own making or of the making of others. But they are not stupid.
So, Ann, how dare you! I am deeply disappointed in you.
I see Newt’s flaws. And I see Romney’s flaws. I am a realist. But I also hear what each says ... and so do many others. I know who is closer to Reagan in philosophy ... and it isn’t Mitt.
His Economic plan and Energy plan are on his website.
“Romney changed his mind on abortion — not when it was politically advantageous, but when it mattered. “
then he changed it again with a romneycare that covered abortions
We are so screwed. And I for one am mad about it! Where the hell is our Ronald Reagan?
Speak for yourself!
Newt is a conservative.
GO NEWT!!!! WOO-HOO!
“Serious question, how is he going to pay for the huge build up of the Space Program that such a mission would require? Not bashing the idea, since I am xNasa, but going to the moon and building a man capable base is not going to be cheap (or easy). Cost could be somewhat mitigated by surface mining h3, and who knows what else of value might be found/built there but the initial cost will be huge.”
For starters, you get rid of the bureaucratic approach to government.
If I knew absolutely nothing about issues I’d vote Newt simply based on who his enemies are. On a side note John King is one of the biggest dbags! He has no shame. Repeating all day what he KNOWS are complete falsehoods! Sorry for the rant.
Well isn't that nice of you, newbie.
Dec 9, 2001
but I am not there yet regarding Newt , my hope is less mud throwing and more intelligent defense of positions.
What you call mud - I call Truth. Duck, if you can't take it.
TSA and Amtrak need to go private why the Govt is running the rail system is beyond me,
Maggie Thatcher got British rail private and sold it off and this should be done here.
The TSA needs to go and have their private security made up of mostly vets who know the score and security and have a love for this country.
Many of the TSA are useless and not very bright but because they have that power they’re like little commie policemen
I just did a mortgage calculator on our debt, 30 years to pay it off means a 1.2 trillion payment every year for 30 years. Now if all you want to do is just pay the interest on the debt that’s about 600 billion a year at 3% and then there is the 70+ trillion dollar debt of unfunded liabilities but I am to depressed to look at those numbers. Also consider we are currently running a 1.2 trillion budget deficit and I think you will see that we are to broke to do take on any great new projects.
If it was doctered, they would have made her ears smaller and shaped better.
Gosh, I guess she will never marry me now!
PS I have used that pic dozens of times on Coulter coulmns I post every week.
The joke writes itself! All you have to do is finish it:
Ann Coulter, Andrew Sullivan, and Joe Scarborough walk into a bar...
Annie has gone Irrelevant and hapless R-I-N-O.
“Romney changed his mind on abortion — not when it was politically advantageous, but when it mattered.”
So, what happens now? Do you disband the fan club or support her no matter what?
Sad to see Coulter become a RINO hack. Yuck. Let her join Bill O’Reilly as cohost; they deserve each other.
Actually, Ann it's defined as the group that wants to keep the spending and regulation that gives them wealth and power.
They'll say they are pro- choice, they'll say they are pro-life, whatever it takes to keep them up and us down.
Didn’t know it was attached to an invention. That’s even better. It caught my eye or ear - not sure which. ;) All the best with it!
Ann Coulter is nothing more than an insufferable b*tch anymore.
She is like a whiny liberal who doesn’t get her way.
"I bet you $10,000 that my utterly
mindless maid, here, absolutely supports RomneyCARE AND deathpanels,
and she supports my coverup of the BIG DIG AND my backstabbing of GOP candidates through surrogates,
(Thank me, she even jumps right in to attack them)
and she especially LOVES my imposition of gay marriage by Executive Authority,
and my support of TARP and Sharia,
and mof the 911 Victory Mosque.
These are things that make us 'conservative'."
So our only hope is Mitt - a man who proudly states that his biggest reason for getting elected is that he worked with Ma liberals in the state legislature?????
Buh Bye Old Maid. I can replace the money I gave you,
you can't replace your youth.
That's pretty shallow kid.
Where’s his hand?

I know there are people that get off on mud throwing and tirades and such. I know that people in growing number also enjoy watching all this reality TV crap out there to. Doesn’t mean I have to stand for it or agree with it.
I am a Reagan conservative and refuse to participate in mud slinging or ridiculous hyperbole. I win my positions on ideas and subtle persuasion.
Again with my join date, I have always liked FR for years for reading news stories and finally wanted to get in on some good debates (since my office now allows us to use the internet during work hours). I can read the mission statement just like you can, I am always respectful of going into any ones home/business and FR is no different so I try to be appropiate.
I am not bashing Newt I just can’t get on the bandwagon right now, I have previously said this is the worst lot of Republicans I can remember and I am supporting none of them in the primary as of now.
Gingrich may have spent his entire life in Washington and be so much of an insider that, as Jon Stewart says, “when Washington gets its prostate checked, it tickles [Newt],” but he is deemed the rebellious outsider challenging “the Establishment” — because, again, “the Establishment” is anyone who opposes Newt.
Best response I can think to this is: Is that why they kicked him out? What, the 1998 elections didn’t turn out great. Big deal. So, the Republicans kicked out the “insider” Newt and replaced Newt with ... that unmemorable person.
Newt may be imperfect, he may have sat with Pelosi, endorsed Scozzafava, and been pro-global warming, but if he keeps saying the right things, I’m happy to support/endorse him.
