Thank you for your input.
Much food for thought in that post. Have to wonder why. I haven’t paid too much attention this week, but now you have my radar up. THank you!!
Wow..you’ve got it. Catching up on reading FR threads this morning...and the trail brought me here. Entirely plausible motive. I wish I had better ears on the ground here in Pa.
Sneaky rotten stinking aroma is wafting from the west.
Stinks to the high heavens. Not going to go down without a fight.
Ok, forget the 3/1 debate..how about a televised forum of Newt and a panel of supporters..fleshing out ideas/solutions. The Texas Tea Party event with Newt and Herman Cain was widely watched, perhaps this is the way to go. This time, invite Perry, Cain and yes, Palin. Is that possible?
You fixed nothing.
Based on this morning’s reading, had to update the tagline
You’re either totally ignorant or a liar. Newt is NOT for any of those things. I suggest you go to Newt.org and read his campaign platform.
A few of the votes, like the one you mention ARE understandable. And there are a couple others that I can go along with that may mean, as I’ve mentioned elsewhere, that I am not a 100% rock ribbed conservative. I can even understand (with some misgivings) his position on Spectre (basically he was asked to be a team player, as I understand it.)
My problem is that we have plenty of Santorum supporters on here who seem to have unlimited time to blast Newt, but little to none to explain in detail where Santorum stands with regard to his record on a great many issues. Newt, on the other hand, is a policy wonk who loves to disseminate his ideas publicly, and has for a long time. So I find that particularly on economic issues, I have a much better idea of where Newt is at (or has been), warts and all.
Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich defended his stance on immigration during a town hall in Naples, Florida on Friday. "I am not for amnesty for anyone. I am not for a path to citizenship for anybody who got here illegally," he said, according to The Hill. "But I am for a path to legality for those people whose ties run so deeply in America that it would truly be a tragedy to try and rip their family apart." The former House speaker broke with the rest of the GOP field on the issue of immigration during a debate last week, calling for a more "humane" immigration policy that allows undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States. "I do not believe that the people of the United States are going to take people who have been here a quarter century, who have children and grandchildren, who are members of the community, who may have done something 25 years ago, separate them from their families, and expel them," Gingrich said during the debate, broadcast on CNN Nov. 22.
So what is the statue of limitations as far as he is concerned about someone who broke the law? Is it any fairer to let someone stay who did it 25 years ago, as opposed to someone who did it 3 years ago? Will he want a national dialog to determine that?
You can choose to hide you head in the sand, like so many other americans, but Newt is no friend to Americans. Granted, he is way better than Obama and I would vote for him like I did for McCain. But he is not the conservative you think he is.
P.S. If you can not hold a conversation without using liberal tactics of name calling and insinuation, then don't talk to me.
It doesn’t matter what he is asked about NOW. That won’t be the issue when facing Obama but it will be something NEW something he has had no chance to address.
Don’t you know how these clowns operate. For a conservative it is ALWAYS “gotcha”.
Santorum will field any of their attacks with minimal damage.
