    - Freddie Mac lobbyist

    - Supporter of ethanol

    - Called Paul Ryan's budget "right-wing social engineering."

    And now, he's for granting amnesty to illegal aliens. From the CNN debate

    Newt Gingrich Calls for Regime Change in Iran - WSJ.com

    Newt's moving to broaden his support.

    Clever. Clever.

    In all fairness, what politicians isn't a lobbyist whore? Pelosi, Feinstein, Corzine....etc
    Furthermore, why are you claiming Newt was strictly a lobbyist
    I believe Newt corrected himself with the Ryan plan.

    Your comments are part of fabian socialist hit pieces in this country.......the current potus seems used that in his bag of tricks. ie supporting ows and pointing blame on the 1% who back his campaign.

    Yes, it's a smart move. He won that point and Romney lost. Is it enough to win him Latino support? Doubtful.

    I want the Mexicans out of this country more then 99 percent of this board, but the political class within this country's at the leadership level, DON"T. As long as we have the congress; with solid members that care about us and our vote, there won't be amnesty. Don't you people understand that both Bush and Obama wanted Amnesty? Never got it because the congress couldn't pass one for them...With a president Gingrich we will just have to get enough of the senate and house to make sure he doesn't get what he wants.

    Remember, a large part of the republican party supports amnesty and the dream act. Hell, they led the charge under George w Bush...So this isn't suprising at all.

    The thing is Newt is far to the right on most issues then Obama. Still the best choice, even through if he was a king or dictator would grant amnesty. Thank god he is only running for president. He isn't a rino...If Not newt, who? Only Paul, Bachmann left worth voting for!

    wow, the Romney-bots are now attacking Newt...

    Perry faltered because he explained his position (which was quite sensible) poorly.

    Frankly, the GOP needs to really confront the racists in their party, because only about 1% of the population lives in mortal fear a Mexican might date their daughter.

    The GOP is not going to win without improving its position amongst Hispanics. That's a dead issue for Romney, for Pete's Sake. His hypocrisy on this issue is manifest, from using immigration bashing to best Perry to hiring illegals to do his lawn work. Oh, yeah, and his whacky cult thinks dark skin is a curse from God.

    Cursed by God, apparently!

    Let's break down the numbers, shall we. Bush-43 (Jesus, I'm using Dubya as a good example?) manifestly resisted the haters in the party. He still lost Hispanics overall, but he got a respectable 44% of their vote. John McCain initially tried to do the right thing, but in the quest for the nomination, he strated to embrace the Minuteman position. As a result, he got only 31% of the Hispanic vote.

    Explain California and moonbeam decision. In Browns action, it's an attempt to drawn in voters for liberals plain and simple and it's a complete lie state otherwise when he passed the bill. It further is a magnet as stated in the debate to why illegals come here is based on the welfare benefits as passed by law by Brown and liberals in California..Brown's sig on the bill.

    I think that amnesty was halted with the illness and subsequent death of Ted Kennedy. They need a powerful voice in congress to get it going again. I don't believe Newt is that voice, he probably doesn't even mean what he was saying so you all can continue to support him.
