    Oh, God no.

    That either of those clods could be considered "conservative" (whatever the hell that's supposed to mean anymore) shows to go ya just how far left this poor nation has lurched.

    The only way you can see either as a conservative is if you are not a conservative yourself imo.

    I view both Mitt and Newt as ambitious opportunists both using the naivety of self identified 'conservatives' to demean each other.

    But the real question to be answered is what is a 21st Century American conservative? What do they believe in and why are they so quick to attack other self described conservatives as RINO's?

    They are both very conservative but the tea party has went so far to the right that everything left of Limbaugh looks like Stalin.

    You have me wrong there, I distrust any fringe party, Tea or Communist.
