Hey Florida! Annoy A Liberal – Vote Newt Tuesday!





Morning peeps!

OK, before people start thinking I am endorsing Newt, I am NOT.  I endorse Gov. Palin who is telling us to Vote Newt.  Because she is making that request, I am supporting it.

I hope she will be pleased tonight when the results come in. I would like her to see success in her strategy.  If you missed Gov. Palin’s interviews last night you can catch them here and here.  I got the impression that her interview with Hannity was taped before her interview with Judge Napolitano.

Palin vs Stalinists

An endorsement from the grave?

Legal Insurrection: NO Newt did not endorse the Obamacare mandate…

Gov. Palin is the bonus QOTD

Jonah Goldberg thinks Palin might be right

Newsmax reports on Palin’s interview…

Sound the alarms! We have a good one! This lady nails it!!

Sign me up next!

Michelle Malkin endorsed Santorum but not without being snarky on wondering who the “machine” is. Maybe she should read this.

Romney HIDING money…

No one should be surprised by this… this was the plan…

Mean people suck…

Rush on the health care mandate…

MUST READ: my blood boils every time I hear Romney or one of his stooges use this line of attack when they know it is false.

Yes, leave him in jail to set an example. This kid was no fool.

Oh please let it backfire

Oh, looky here…

 

Art Laffer compares Newt vs Mitt on tax plans…

Gingrich lowering expectations in Nevada…

Donna Brazile “Newt Gingrich is the only Republican that whipped us in ’94″

Something tells me Romney won’t like being treated the same way he is treating Newt…

I would like to know the answer to these questions…

The Duggars are completing Santorum’s Florida commitments…

I am very glad to hear that she is doing better…

No room for Allen West in Romney’s GOP…

Thomas Sowell defends Newt…

 

Look! I found another picture of a monkey… this is the best one yet!

 

Have a blessed Tuesday everyone!  I’ll be back here tonight to follow results. Let’s all cross our fingers and toes and say some prayers!

      Thank you, Crueladev, for the story about “Roadie.”

      In my little circle, we exchange many things, but one of them is and “Awww” now and then.  This is our Awww, oooh! and sniff sniff for this week.

          Update:  Just to let you know how these things go…

          A friend of mine who has rescued many animals, many kinds was really impressed with the article and her comment was;  ”Yes, the medical care can be very expensive.”  So, I guess those that are interested should find a way to donate something to help the rescuers out when ever possible.

    Florida will be an example of how early voting rules pervert the absentee voting process.  There was a time when absentee votes made up a very small percentage of the total votes cast.  It was intended to be used by those people who knew they would not be present in their home voting precinct on election day.  Now, the process has morphed into an exercise in convenience. 

    IMO, early voting increases the likelihood that a voter is uninformed when casting a vote.  With the 24/7 news cycle, the likely chance that “new” valid information is disclosed or uncovered just a few days, or even hours before election day is great.  It’s bad enough that many voters show up at the polls uneducated to the issues or the worthiness of the candidates.  Early voting only exacerbates that problem.

     

    • Bean Counter

      Amen. I detest early voting. I think it’s communist. I’ve early voted one time, only because a friend I had helped “see the light” so to speak, was going to be out of town on election day, so I early voted with her to make sure she voted — for GWB in 2000, instead of our own Spotted Al Gore. It’s just a way to game the system, for the reasons you cite above, and I’d be in favor of repealing it.

    section 9,
    I have followed your writing for ages and have even read what you have written on military sites.Your post last evening was extremely good (ranking up there with some of creuladev’s best).
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

    • section9

      Thank you. It’s where I think Palin and her client base will go in the wake of a probable Romney nomination and defeat.

      Civil war in the GOP was inevitable. George Bush failed to designate a successor, and he didn’t leave Dick Cheney with enough power to force a policy consensus within the Party.

      So in the wilderness years, while people like Paul Ryan and Palin were making policy speeches and fighting Obamacare, the Bushies were plotting to continue the Dynastic Rule of their family over the GOP. Only in this light does the campaign to undermine Palin after the 2010 elections and Tucson begin to make sense.

      By the way, those of you mad at Nikki Haley for endorsing Romney? Haley was probably made and Offer She Couldn’t Refuse: get with the Program or get Blackballed like Palin. Haley doesn’t have Palin’s guts.

      Palin was one of the few to get this. She was able to see a campaign run into the ground (intentionally I might add, the Bushies and McCain have hated each other since 2000) up close, and of course, the Bushites blamed her to cover up for their failure. 

      The Establishment doesn’t really care about Reaganism or what Reagan stood for. Rather, they are only eager to get their hands on the swag and the IRS so they can manipulate the tax code to benefit their clients (who are often the same clients as Obama’s). But as long as the GOP can get conservatives to vote for their Store Mannequin Candidates, people will keep driving towards the cliff. That’s what keeps the Gravy Train going in Washington; our willingness to be codependents of a corrupt ruling class.

      Palin and Paul are MADE for each other as coalition partners. You could see she wanted to be really nice to Paul last night on Judge Nap without undermining Gingrich. Paul’s people will always be with him, and Paultardism is pulling in more and more independents that Palin had trouble with after 2008. This is where the GOP is headed, and most of the Establishment hasn’t figured it out yet. The really smart ones are trying to find a way to coopt Paul, and may be able to by using his son against him.

      The GOP under the Bushtards have become the old Canadian Progressive Conservatives under Brian Mulroney. They were just like the GOP when they held absolute power in the eighties and into the nineties. Canadians tired of a party that was just going through the motions and was awash in corruption and graft (sound familiar?). The Party was destroyed utterly in the 1994 elections that brought Jean Chretien and the Liberals to power.

      The response of the Canadian Right at the time was at first regionally based and chaotic. Many followed Stockwell Day and others into the Alliance, which was basically the foundation of the modern Conservatives. However, the Alliance was mostly based on Western Canadian grievances against Federal Canada and was very regional in nature.

      The continuation of the Liberals in power and the report of the Gomery Commission in 2005 brought Steven Harper and the Conservatives to the cusp of power. Harper’s genius was to bring conservatism and make it national, where as Day wasn’t quite able to break out of Western Canada. Harper was able to distinguish the new Conservatives from the old PC’s, so out in the ridings in Ontario, where Canadian elections are decided, the new party picked up seats to add to their Western Canadian strength. The Liberals were annihilated. Unlike American voters, Canadians have little tolerance for public corruption.

      Palin’s challenge is to change the Republican Party from the ground up. Otherwise, we will go the way of the PC’s, and I promise you, conservatives will start to leave the party. Right now, the GOP is controlled by the worst of rackets. That can’t continue given the contradictions in the party. And so, it won’t.

      • Gelston

        double thank you.

        • section9

          I’m not quite up to speed about the sequence of events in Canada, but I’ve got it roughly correct. The pay for play activities of Jean Chretien and his Chief of Staff, as well as other Liberal Party cronies, occurred in the mid-nineties. The report didn’t come out until 2005. The revelations of kickbacks to Liberal Party supporters as a result of the Gomery Commission led to the fall of the Government and the election of Harper in 2006.

          It’s difficult to tell when ordinary Americans will revolt against a corrupt order. They are so inured to bad news and they are so wrapped up in the Blue vs. Red Game that a political upheaval seems remote. However, and this is why Paul is important, the coincidental occurrence of the collapse of the dollar as a store of value, the looting of the savings of the middle class, and the increase in cronyism and corruption in Washington have set the table for a Second Bryan Movement, with Palin possibly playing the role of William Jennings Bryan.

          It will come. The only question is whether the upheaval will occur within the GOP or whether the GOP will go the way of the Whigs.

          • hrh40

            I certainly don’t want Palin in the Bryan role: 3-time failed presidential candidate?

            Nope.

            I certainly hope she is President. And soon.

            • section9

              Bryan, unfortunately, won the intellectual battle. His motto of “free silver” and redistributionism took over the Democratic Party. FDR and his people trace their intellectual lineage back to William Jennings  Bryan and the “Cross of Gold” speech in 1896.

              Palin has to win the same kind of victory in the GOP, or help found a new party. The old order is dying; they just don’t know it yet. Palin has to be in the vanguard of what’s new.

              • hrh40

                Oh, I agree, she can and will be the vanguard of the new/restored constitutional republican principles.

                And I agree she will take Paul’s good ideas for domestic policy and actually be the one to implement them.

                I have for a long time called Ron Paul a prophet in the OT mold, i.e, they cry out the truth for decades, and the people don’t listen to them or think they’re crackpots. But it turns out some of their ideas are true and right. But they’re just the messenger/prophet. They cannot carry through to implementation. Just as Ron Paul has gotten nothing done during his 30 years of crying in the wilderness.

                Palin can. She has at every level of government.

                And will again.

                So Ron Paul is the William Jennings Bryan in my world. :)

                I also think that’s why she’s supporting Newt at the mo’ and for the STATED reasons that he has proved he can MAKE CHANGE HAPPEN, i.e., balanced budgets and reformed welfare with a DEMOCRAT president.

                He is certainly an imperfect vessel. He may or may not be the vessel in 2012. Palin still may be the vessel in 2012. Or a key member of Newt’s admin. Don’t know. Can’t predict.

                But I’m hanging on for the wild ride!

      • http://twitter.com/Crueladev Crueladev

        I just have one problem with what you said..otherwise…good stuff.

        “Palin and Paul are MADE for eachother”…EGADS MAN!! Seriously?  The guy is a LUNATIC.
        Any relationship Palin would form with him would just bring her status of being a crazy, dumb woman into the fold of reality.  She needs to keep praising him from a distance on some of his economic ideas…but slamming him for his foreign policies or lack there of…  JMHO..

        • section9

          Trust me when I tell you this: Paul is in the vanguard of where the GOP rank and file are heading-Liberty at Home and Noninterventionism abroad.

          Palin knows this, that’s why she’ll align with Paul after the election is over and Romney is crushed. 

          • http://twitter.com/Crueladev Crueladev

            Well S9…if that is so…I will need to rethink some things.
            I would hope she would be smart enough to recognize a LUNATIC when she sees one.
            I give her more credit…I guess.

    I’ve discovered that I’m taller than Gov. Palin.

    HA! HA!

    I don’t know, I found that interesting. I’m 5’6″ and she is what, 5’4″ or 5’5″? An inch is an inch people, it’s totally worth it.

    Whatever happens in the FL primary today, happens. Except we need to boot Romney out ASAP. That I would like to happen. 

    If anyone saw me on Twitter last night, let’s just say I had to blow off steam. Totally not worth it. Sorry for the tweets :)  

    I’m going to annoy a Ron Paul supporter…see ya. ;)

  • Bill589

    A Floridian at C4P pointed out that most TP people there are independents, and won’t be able to vote in Florida’s closed primary.

    I haven’t read or thought about this until now. I don’t know the real statistics of the matter. The few TP people I know up here in CT are independents. I only switched to Republican in order to vote for Sarah in the primary.

    • hrh40

      My political trajectory as well.

      We’ll see where that trajectory goes after 2012 …

    • Firelight

      That’s the same in Colorado. Most are registered as “unaffiliated” which is Independent in our state. Many of them did switch to Republican for the primary but many did not.

      • hrh40

        Yep, unaffiliated in CT, too.

        Which I became aware of when I was sitting across the table from a Dem mayor, who had previously run for mayor as GOP and lost, and so switched parties.

        His implication was that I wasn’t all that, because I wouldn’t choose a party. From the flip flopper party opportunist.

  • section9

    Did as the Governor asked of me and voted for Gingrich. I would have rather voted for Paul, but I get what Palin is doing.

    I still believe Romney wins tonight, but not going away.

  • TENCOLE

    My goodness Firelight….that article about the Floridian Tea Partier was amazing….It could have been me saying those things.
    So glad to see that I’m not alone. :(

  • Bean Counter

    Hey y’all. Another drive by post. Today is the alleged deadline (although it’s really not) to get W-2′s and 1099′s to recipients, and it never fails that I’ve got clients who need to send someone a 1099 at the last minute but don’t have addresses and/or social security/FEIN numbers, so I’m scrambling like a couple eggs in a hot frying pan.

    I still don’t like any of the 4 stooges, but if I lived in FL, I would vote for Newt. I love it that the Gov is stirring the pot as furiously as she can.

    And this is funny — my college student goddaughter just got a job at Hollister as a model. She’ll be walking around in the store wearing their clothes that she gets at a ridiculous discount. I asked her if she will have any other duties, and she said she may fold up a few clothes and might check out a few customers, but mainly she walks around the store in their clothes. Must be nice. I guess somebody’s gotta do it.

    Off to scare up some numbers….

  • KatieSilverSpring

    Off the topic, slightly, does anyone remember on Twitter the call to list out TEA Party candidates on a local level, so that they are supported beyond their boundaries?  I just got clarification from one here who is running against US Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) and need to add him.

    Point of interest:

    “Bus repairs, dated Oct. 27, were listed at about $1,100.”

    October 27?

    … ???

    • ErinMC4

      Thanks for sharing the link!

      I also thought this was worth a “huh, well there ya go”:
      “Palin’s contributions do include $5,000 to the Republican Party of Iowa, a contribution that came on the eve of the Ames Straw Poll in August when Palin visited the state, and a charitable contribution of $300 to Paws and Effect of Des Moines, Iowa.”

      Not that anyone here doubts it, but seems to indicate she was indeed still looking at a run in August. For what it’s worth, my opinion remains that she was planning a run until a few days before she announced she would not.

      Anyways, it was interesting. :)

    • Firelight

      Maybe that’s just when they paid the bill?  It could be minor routine repairs I guess.

      • hrh40

        Yep.

        Just grasping here about why repair a bus if you don’t plan to reuse it?

        Of course, if it’s the family bus, then the “repairs” could just be a power-washing of the One Nation paint off. :(

        • http://www.twitter.com/whitneypitcher Whitney Pitcher

           This is the kind of thing that would get the PDSers and flying pig people’s panties in a wad, even though it’s benign.  The Palins did use their own bus (which shows frugality), and simply wrapped it with the “One Nation” wrap. The money could have gone to taking the wrap off or to repairs needed following the miles and miles put on across the country and both to and from Alaska. The timing just could be the bill or the delay in the repairs.

    • http://twitter.com/Crueladev Crueladev

      Having been around a lot..and I do mean A LOT of motorhomes my best guess is that the repairs involved winterization and possible removal of the wrap…as Whit has said.

      Given the date tells me they had to winterize it which involves blowing out all the lines and
      putting antifreeze through the system. 

      The Palin’s have a customized Class A Motorhome.  $1,100 for “repairs” on one of those things…is like you and I fixing a flat tire…cost wise.

    Also tweeted Jeffrey Lord’s article about the history of Establishment vs conservatives going all the way back to Hoover, even a Teddy R mention, to Michelle Malkin:

  • http://www.twitter.com/whitneypitcher Whitney Pitcher

    Good morning!

    Thanks for the great roundup, Firelight! That “Palin vs. the Stalinists” was article was interesting, particularly since The Nation is a liberal site.

    When Governor Palin said last night that “we’re looking for a dog that will bite when its caged gets rattled”, did anyone else have a flash of Romney putting his dog in a cage on the roof of their car? For some reason, that mental picture came to mind when she said that.

    I’m still trying to make sense of Governor Palin’s quasi support of Newt. I completely agree with her desire to keep the race going. I guess I just kind of wish the support for Newt was a bit more muted, not that I should think she should support anyone else. I guess I’ll trust that her political instincts are a heck of a lot better than mine. She knows what she’s doing.

    In the meantime, I’m hoping to try to perhaps volunteer when I can with a local state senate race. I think my 2012 goal will be to do my tiny part to help the make it so that people laugh at Illinois less.

    • ErinMC4

      Hi Whitney–

      Actually, when she said that last night, I thought: those are song lyrics…I know it! I just couldn’t think of the dang song. Then I googled “rattle his cage” lyrics and BINGO: Toby Keith. If my memory serves, he’s a fav of the good Gov.  I’ve been listening to “America by Heart” while I run lately (sadly, I have little time for actual reading right now so I’ve resorted to audiobooks) and have just gotten to the section “Why do they serve”. She discusses Toby Keith’s song, Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue and quotes that line! Funny how she chose to use that image last night.

      However, I find your image interesting too…haha. But seriously, poor dog!

      • http://www.twitter.com/whitneypitcher Whitney Pitcher

        I did think about that song too. I had forgotten she used that reference in her book. :)

    • Firelight

      Oh gosh Whit!!  I didn’t even make the connection to the dog bit but you are right, lol.

      I should have made the connection because when I was talking to a friend about it she wondered how the dog was when he got him off the roof and said that if it were her, she would have bit him.

      Good connection, LOL!  I wonder if Gov. Palin had that in mind when she made the comment.

      I like Nancy’s tweet this morning the best when she said something along the lines of – annoy a liberal vote for Newt, heck annoy yourself too.

      That pretty much sums it up for me :)

    • hrh40

    Morning all…..Pietro Leatherchest here….Well, the great desert Southwest is in for a cooling…down to 74 degrees today…but not quite the -80 below in Alaska….I’m listening to AOL radio country classics….music from the 50′s, 60′s, and 70′s. They dont make songs or singers like the great ones in the past…I remember them like it was yesterday….I wrote one song, but it didnt go anywhere..maybe you heard of it “She broke my heart, so I broke her jaw”/s  Cheer-up and have a great day and stay safe.

    • Firelight

      LOL!

  • GetWhatYouPayFor

    When I heard Rove last night saying Palin “endorsed”, except for getting on stage and hugging Newt, and that she and Cain were were significant, I had no doubt he was armed with polling that showed Mitt was going to win big. He never mentioned her significance in South Carolina. He was setting it up nicely to run with how she and Cain and the Tea Party can now be declared dead and an albatross. Just wait until tomorrow, no matter how “big’ the win was. The Governor was correct to identify this fight as a war between the establishment and the true conservative Americans (Tea Party).  The big money and cronies will be mocking and giggling in unison tomorrow. I think I will watch a hockey game!

        She went in enough that she will take some heat. They will try at least and some will buy into it because they are sheeple.

        • section9

          True. However, that will give her an opening to fire back at them on issues.

          She wants this fight. She picked it, knowing Newt was going to lose. She had to know the trend since early last week.

    Hey Fire, I always like your daily roundups! I’ve come to really enjoy checking in here first thing in the morning with my Starbucks. I keep “Vias” on hand now to make at home, until I venture out. They arent too bad.

    I don’t fully understand  Michelle Malkin. Its nice that she has endorsed Rick S. But over the past 5-6 months she has jabbed, poked and prodded each of the candidates… and to what purpose? If you are even a casual follower of Michelle’s (column or television appearances), you would make note that she has left some of the candidates mortally wounded with a knife stuck in their belly.

    What I always walk away wondering about Michelles often times glaring critiques
    is… How is this constructive to “our” cause? Myself, I prefer her to harrass the other side of the aisle.

    I think it was the very first day that Rick Perry was in the race that
    she allowed her obvious disdain for him to seep out. She immediately went on
    the attack. (She may have had a column written and stored on her hard drive,in the event
    he got in the race.)
     She has overtly ruled out each candidate and it is my belief that if she was a little less harsh, and spent a small amount of time criticizing and analyzing the left’s policies we would be in a much better position.  
    Sure, I would love a do over. I’d like to start the primary season with eight fresh as a flower candidates- fiscally and socially conservative traditional purists.  But “we got what we got”…
    …And sadly…hat in hand… I will be voting for the nominee who ever it is… because it is anyone but Obama.

    Happy Megs McCain Day!

    I thought I would chime in and give the middle finger to Megs McCain since Palin has too much class to stoop to my level.

    Good Lord. 

    Obama doesn’t know how to improve the economy or create jobs, but someone still pays Megs to write about politics?  Are you freakin’ kidding me?!  If you haven’t yet heard, she thinks Newt should drop out if he loses FL today.

    The Queen has spoken.

    In all seriousness, how delusional is this woman?  Does she enjoy making a complete a** out of herself?  Why hasn’t Daddy or her Mother stepped in and asked her to find a new career outside of politics? 

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh……..Calgon take me away!!

    • poljunkie

      I was going to say that I
      dislike her more than most, …. then I remembered that I said that yesterday in
      reference to Debbie Wasserman Shultz. 

      I have blonde hair so I’m not
      discriminating. 

      If I keep this up, I’m going to be labeled a hater. 
      HA!

    FL primary = Northeast Weather reports

    The way the Establishment and media are reporting this primary, you would think whoever wins FL is the grand winner of everything.  Um, haven’t we just started the process?

    This reminds me of how the national media reports any weather in the Northeast.  You see, that is the only weather anyone in the country cares about don’t ya know.  Barf.

    Enough already.  For a midwestern chick, this stuff gives me a good eye roll.  Yes, there are other parts of the country besides FL and the Northeast.

    GET PREPARED:
    This morning the Muslim Brotherhood warned the United States that if the United States continued meddling in Egypt , Libya , and other potential hot spots in the middle east, they intend to cut off America ‘s supply of
    7-11 and Motel 6 managers.

    If this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell, AT&T and AOL customer service reps.

    Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened not to send us any more presidents either.

    It’s gonna get ugly.

    My latest thoughts on the Palin/tea party battle against the GOP establishment.  http://cityonahillpolitics.blogspot.com/2012/01/pragmatic-palins-rage-against-machine.html

  • M_Baker

    Despite what Sarah would like, I won’t vote for Newt because of his Congressional ethic complaints, poor morals, and the numerous misinformation he has given for his Congressional record, as reasons for voting for him.  I also can’t trust him. He cheated on both of his ex-wives, and lied to them all the time he was cheating.  He’s arrogant, divisive, and like Mitt, always changing his stance according who he’s talking to.  Despite what Sarah says, I’m voting for who I think is the best candidate.  There is no reason to continue this “self destruction” and “cannibalism” of debates any longer so we can learn more about the candidates by prolonging the vetting process.  We will not learn anymore about the candidate than we already know by continuing these debates.  She keeps trying to accuse the phantom “establishment” of using “self destruction” and “cannibalistic” tactics, when it reality it’s the candidates themselves who are doing it to each other, and by doing so they’re also hurting the whole Republican Party.  I live in Florida and I voted for Romney, even though I’m also not so crazy about him.  But, he is the one candidate who has the most potential to beat Obama according to many polls.  The sooner these nightmare of debates are over, the sooner the Republicans can get united behind one candidate to help him to defeat Obama.

      So exactly what “ethics complaints”…do you find most important?
      Which one was your deciding factor that Newt was corrupt? 

      Basically what happened to Gov. Palin in Alaska happened to Newt in Congress. 
      He paid the fine to avoid going bankrupt by a bunch of crap complaints.

      I wish some people would really do some research before spouting off.  I don’t know anything
      about Romney other that he flaps platitudes…has questionable tax issues…was part of an Olympics of CORRUPTION of where High Officials were bribed.  He is for abortion, gun control, Romney/ObamaCare,…etc…before he was against it.   He is Tea Party…then not. He is Pro Reagan…then not…

      Tell me…what do YOU know about Romney…really.  Tell me!

      • M_Baker

        He paid a fine in order not to go bankrupt?  Or did he pay the fine because he was guilty and the evidence was too strongly against him.  What I find is important is he is the only one in history to pay such a large fine.  What happened to Gov. Palin in Alaska is not the same as what happened to Gingrich.  There was strong evidence against Gingrich, or he wouldn’t have  paid the fines as well as resign.  I’ve done my research and I also remember when Gingrich was in office and why he had to leave.  He also was having an affair all the while he was accusing Clinton of the same, in fact, that was another major reasons the Republicans were dissatisfied with him.

        I know a lot about Romney and the details of how Bain was run.  It was legal, it gave investors a good return, but not necessarily morally correct, depending on who you talk to.  Since this discussion is not on Romney but Gingrich, I’m not spending anymore time discussing Romney. I’ve already expressed that I’m not totally satisfied with him, and I also stated he is the only one who has a chance beating Obama according to many polls that have been conducted in the past months.

        • Firelight

          Again, you bought into the lies.

          The IRS cleared Gingrich completely of the $300k fee he paid. The fee was for the reimbursement of the investigation not a fine.  The IRS said that Gingrich was innocent and should never have paid anything.

          There was no strong evidence against Gingrich. It was all fabricated and again he was cleared completely 3 years after he paid the money. It was a witch hunt.

          He also recused himself from the Clinton impeachment proceedings so he wasn’t leading the charge on that.

          As for Romney with Bain, no it was not all legal. He will have a serious problem with his medicare fraud he participated in. That will be paraded out for all to see when Obama has his chance.

          You voted against Gingrich based on misinformation and lies spread by the Romney camp and you completely glossed over major deficits in Romney’s record and character.

          Again, you have a right to vote for who you want but don’t expect a pat on the back.

    • Firelight

      You are welcome to vote for Romney but your reasoning is based on lies. The things you object to about Gingrich politically are all lies that Romney told. Romney started the cannibalism in Iowa with his dishonest attacks against Gingrich. Romney spent the most money attacking people with lies. He has no concern for the truth. Romney lies about the other candidates, he lies about his own record. The man just lies.

      I can see that you bought in to those lies. The problem Romney has is that he has no ideas, no solutions and no record to which he can brag about so he is only left with attacking the others.

      Obama will eat Romney’s lunch.
