    Why in the hell would anyone think that you're a viable presidential candidate?

    Do any of you GOP types who are strongly in support of Newt remember back when he was kicked out of the Senate for ethics violations, paid 300,000 in fines and was sent home?

    Now...........if a person is kicked out of a lower job (i.e. Senate) and impeached, what is it that would make them qualified for a higher status job (i.e. President)?

    That's almost like being a department head in a corporation, getting caught embezzeling and subsequently fired, then being asked a few years later to be the CEO.

    Newt resigned (from the House. Where he was speaker). But don't let the truth get in the way of your hatred.
    You libs still hate that it was because of Newt and the republicans that Clinton had any real success in office.
    Welfare reform and a balance budget are just two of the things Newt is responsible for.

    Excuse me........he was Speaker of the House. Doesn't change the fact that he was kicked out of Congress.

    And......the question still stands..........if you're kicked out of Congress for ethics violations, why should you be president?
