    Does this mean you will throw Newt under the bus?

    That would be a consideration only to someone small-minded like you who tends to generalize that all Republicans/conservatives agree with everything a particular Republican/conservative says or does.

    This conservative happens to agree with Newt on this issue. It doesn't make him my first choice as the eventual Republican nominee, but I would certainly support him if he was simply because any Republican would be a vast improvement over the current empty suit in the White House.

    Who was the President that signed that? Does he admit it was a mistake?

    I give Newt credit here. He pushed for legislation, he recognizes that it was a mistake, and he doesn't mince words over it. Comes right out and says we should reverse course, and is unapologetic about that reversal. I think it speaks well of him. And I agree with him on this issue, we should reinstate it.

    Is he running for office? Yeah, didn't think so. Let's move forward into the 21st century, shall we?

    Who was it that worked for decades to rid us of Glass Steagal?


    What party held up the regulations in that bill for seven years while the banks ran amouk?

    Glass Steagal should be reinstated.

    We all agree.


    I thought you people hated regulations on business?
