    If you have the editor of Salon rehashing the typical lies, you know they are scared.

    Well, thanks for the link---but it's all shopworn stuff dredged up once again because Newt Gingrich has gained additional popularity on the presidential campaign. Let' just leave it for the inspection of those who enjoy political fart-sniffing. Anyone looking for real facts should read "Setting the Recofd Straight" by Newt's daughter, Jackie Cushman. Like any other human being, Newt Gingrich has personal regrets---and few secrets in that regard.

    Beyond that---imagining the worst Gingrich has done could hold a candle to the exploits of Ted Kennedy or Bill Clinton could only bring a giggle to any serious person. Isn't it amazing people are so concentrated on trivialities instead of substantive political debate. Gosh---do you suppose that could be the strategy of the political left---or are they really dropping the ball by not concentrating on the magnificent Obama accomplishments while in office?

    Yeah, Newt has baggage.

    But it could be worse.

    His preacher could've declared "GOD DAMN AMERICA!!!"
    Or he could've founded his campaign in the living room of an admitted terrorist who bombed cops throughout the 60's and speaks proudly of it to this day.

    But thankfully, Newt avoided that. Those situations would doom any candidate....right?

    Too bad for you Obamabots, Obama also NOW has baggage he will be bringing with him in this election. The main one, him fleecing the TAXPAYERS with his giving away OF OUR MONEY to GREEN companies who THEN WENT BANKRUP. then we have Fast and Furious..and the beat goes on folks

    I hope they slam him with all of it.

    I'm smelling the fear...

    Look, guy, I think at the end of the day, whoever the GOP nominates, you guys are still stuck with the Community Organizer and his record of fail.

    Downgraded National Credit.
    9% unemployment
    4.5 Trillion Dollars in new Debt
    $4.00 a gallon gasoline.

    The craziest things Newt has said? We have the first president that has to write on his hand what country he's in when he's in Hawaii.
