    The Chamber of Commerce, an organization which receives vast sums of money from Russia, India and mostly China, gives to Republicans 9 to 1 over Democrats. I've linked to this many times. Even (hard to believe) some Republicans are uncomfortable with this fact.
    I'm guessing the Democrats that receive Chamber money are the "Blue Dogs" who vote Republican.
    Why is it the majority of the people who are "on the take" claim to be Republican and "moral"? Are those the qualifications for Conservatism? Greed and "morals".

    Newt is crooked as a dog's hind leg. He's right up there with Tom Delay.

    You guys go on and on...

    Freddie and Fannie are liberal creations. And to be fair, they weren't the source of the problem. The source was the housing market itself, how we all thought we were going to get rich and use our houses as ATM's.

    I don't even support Newt but 99% of what the press tells you is propaganda - even if its pro or anti your politics.

    The truth is all that matters and Obama is one of the biggest corporate sponsors of corporate fascism this country has ever seen - however the media reports the guy as some benevolent leader who implements corporate fascism for the greater good of humanity therefore his demands and passed grants, baliouts and regulations are passed off to the public as some kind of greater good..

    Obama has done more damage to this country than any now or in the future.... Obama is easily one of the worst presidents in history bar none.....

    Its odd how ignorant progressives believe every word that comes out of his mouth when hes the one throwing taxpayer money at corporations and republicans are blamed...

    WTF....

    People don't see any of this because they're lazy and rely on their progressive media to tell them what to think and what to believe...

    Well, everyone is entitled to their unsubstantiated prejudice about Gingrich---and he has admitted to very human failings---but there is no doubt many powerful Democrats have been absolutely marinated in the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac corruption for years. Just a few names coming to mind are Rahm Emanuel, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer, Robert Rubin---and Jamie Gorelick. Gorelick was the Clinton Deputy Attorney General responsible for the gelding of our intelligence agencies with "Chinese Wall" restrictions on sharing information that undoubtedly let to the 911 disaster being allowed time for planning during 2000. She went on to be highly compensated during the cooking of the books episode enriching Franklin Raines and Rahm Emanuel. She received a cool 26 million dollars during her seven year stint with Fannie Mae---but---no problem---she is a member of the Democrat left and beyond being held to account.

    As is still his constitutional right while the USA fights to remain a free country. Everyone can disagree without all the ad hominem excess. Essentially, his post is like throwing a rock into a bunch fighting dogs---the one that yelps is probably the one that was hit.
