I don't understand how anyone can vote for a guy who defrauded medicare of so much money that his company was fined something like $119,00,00.
And he can't plead that he knew not because he was running the company.

And the advertising that New was run out of the house in disgrace for unethical behavior when the IRS cleared him.

That a total lie.

Who would vote for a liar and a thief? Only a voter with no moral compass of his own. I hope Newt will stick with it because before it is over, Romney's lies will catch up with him.

Your headline made me think of the novel, "The Devil's Advocate" by Taylor Caldwell. Here is a passage from that book:

Now a bitter and raging anger began to fill him. This group of men, perhaps more than any other single group, was responsible for the muddy horror which had choked the people for decades. The free and independent press! the members of that profession had either supinely allowed themselves to be seduced into the betrayal of a nation, or had been had voluntarily silenced out of cowardice or expediency. Many of them had been engaged for years in active and deliberate treachery, using the powerful means oc communication to further the designs of wicked men. This latter half of the Press had deceived the people with lies and cunning anf falsehood and synthetic rages against "the special intersets" of the forties and fifties. They had denounced any man of spirit and courage who had dared speak against the foul servants of Communism and Socialism whether that man were Senator or fellow-scribe, private citizen, ambassador, statesman or writer. Scores of them had hysterically upheld any politician who had attacked or evaded the Constitution of the United states of America; they had been the idolators of Communist Russia and had labored fervently, for hire or through the evil imaginings of their perverted minds to thrust Marxism upon their nation.

This was the same Big Media that kept John Edwards’ campaign viable (so as to block out Hillary’s threat to Obama by keeping her in a 3 way race for delegates) long past this timeframe in 2008 even after they knew of his bastard child.

I guess we can look forward to more rigged “Twenty One” gameshow style debates from Democrat anchors tossing softballs to the Golden Child, while preparing to release more books in his favor on inauguration day.

And Romney and his advocates will never speak as nasty about The One as they did about Cain, Santorum, and Gingrich. Mitt’s waged a scortched earth campaign and now it’ll be time to make nice. He’s safe to run to the left, as Soros says, there’s little difference except for possibly the VP choice and a future SC nomination.

In Mitt’s favor, he wasn’t raised by an American hating red diaper doper baby on the knee of a Communist and brought into the political area by a former domestic terrorist and treasonous Communist who openly engaged in coordinated enemy attacks in a time of war.

It’s not over nationally, but it’s over here in Florida. Now the regret hangover begins. I put a lot of my time and heart into backing Newt here, and it feels all for naught.

I can’t do much else to help in other states.

This goes far beyond Newt vs. Mitt. This is a battle for the soul of the GOP and what this party stands for. We are either constitutional conservatives or liberal-lites.

Pray for America.

Newt is stubborn as hell —me, too. Us, too.

He’s not going to give up. I’m not going to give up on him. I’m going to recognize is that the EASIER thing is to weep and say, “Well I’ll just go EAT WORMS...!!!”

The harder thing is to suck it up, and keep going. Most people don’t do that. THIS is where we see who are the real true-believers.

I never thought the Monica mess would come out —it did. I thought Fast & Furious would fizzle —it hasn’t.

THE LIBS ARE COUNTING ON US TO GIVE UP & THEY NEED THAT CUZ THEIR GUY IS SOOOO WEAK.

Naw, I’m not giving up, NOPE..!

Reagan would want us to stick it out, and Rush wants that, too.

Newt will CONTINUE —watch.

reclaiming his dominant position in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

Wait, whut?

He didn't win Iowa, he didn't win SC. So he finally won somthing besides liberal New Hampshire?

How many total delegates do all the competitors have? And how many are left out there?
