    I'm watching the post debate coverage and can't believe my ears, AGAIN.

    Newt railing on Romney AGAIN about his money. Bitching about Romneys investments. WTF?!

    I want to support Newt but he keeps spouting liberal hate lines. The only one that doesn't is Paul and Santorum. Paul won't win and Santorum, even if he did, is so polarizing that I don't know if he could beat Obama.

    Newt is so desperate to beat Romney that it seems he will stoop to any level, including the anti capitalism liberal lines.

    That was a really poor line of attack for Newt. And it backfired on him. Romney's response made him look pretty petty. Criticizing him for investments done for him on a blind trust into mutual funds. Romney has no control of what the mutual funds are invested in. That's the whole point of a blind trust. To avoid an appearance of conflict of interest.

    And then when Mitt pointed out that Newt also had similiar investments, it took alot of the steam out of Newt for the evening. It was after that that Newt stopped going after Romney and just strted focusing on his position.

    One does have to wonder why an avowed anti-capitalist Marxist is so popular in the GOP.

    Gramps, do I have to ask for a list on why you like Newt cuz it seems hard outside "He would totally like lolz, own Obama in a debate!"

    Honestly, was its Newt’s position on:

    Cheating on his wives after declaring to God his lifelong commitment

    Lying to people about asking his wife for an open marriage

    Supporting the HC mandate for 20 years only to change his position months before running for President

    Supporting Cap and Trade

    Supporting TARP and the Obama stimulus

    Helping give us the DoEducation

    Supporting Obama on Libya, only to change positions once Obama followed through

    Wanting a cold war with Cuba

    And this list goes on and on…. It's an honest question, what is it you support Newt for other than you wana see him debate Obama. I also think Newt would get destroyed in a debate with Obama because the room will not be filled with 100% Republicans.

    I tell you Grampa, my head's spinning between Newt and Romney on this BS between them.

    I just read a press release, well grab this. I thought my head was going to explode.

    Damn this is crazy.

    “It surprises me that Mitt Romney and his supporters would raise this issue — when Mitt by his own admission voted for Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale who opposed my father, and later supported liberal Democrat Paul Tsongas for president.

    A direct quote from Michael Reagan who is so pissed at Romney now.

    I need some aspirins. My head hurts from this shit. Pardon my french.

    This link is wild. Has a quote from Nancy Reagan too.

    Gingrich has some explaining to do about things he has said about Reagan.

    Better to know these things now than to hear about them after the nomination is settled and Obama uses them to make Gingrich look bad.



    p.s., your link didn't work for me, but I used your quote to find this one: http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/Limbaugh-Reagan-Gingrich-Romney/2012/01/26/id/425666

    No clue, not sure when he declared a life long commitment to God.

    I dont know that anyone knows he is lying. She says he did. He said he didnt. He could be lying. She could be lying. So who knows? No one else was that as far as we know.

    Yes

    Yes

    Not sure of either of his positions on this.

    Yes

    Yes

    Yes

    I dont think Newt's as good a debater when he gets his emotions involved.

    I appreciate the accomplishments Newt had during his term as speaker. Most importantly welfare to work and bringing the Gop to power. Working across the isle to create a balanced budget with a surplus. I also like many of his current ideas.

    I don't like his soaring liberal rhetoric as it relates to Mitt.

    This is the 3rd time I've answered this question all be it with less detail this time. Please stop asking.
