Gingrich is a compulsive liar.
I hope he kicked his ass. Didn't watch it.
Yeah he did.
Cant believe Newt was attacking Romney for investments in a blind trust. As if Romney has control over anything they invest it. That's the whole point of it being a blind trust.
Newtie has always believed that the average American is too stupid to check on his lies.
I dont think that Newt was expecting the audience to be more energetic for Romney when he and Mitt were going at it. Probably why he stopped going after Mitt later one when he had some of his better responses.
Good observation. Unfortunately most don't check on his lies. That's how he gets away with them.
He finally played the 'Not going to apologize for my success' card. I'm sure Romney supporters are saying it's about time.
And when Mitt pointed out that Gingrich also had investments in Fannie and Freddie, that was great.
Newt's come back was that his investments weren't as large as Mitt's?
Trying to make hay out of ordinary investments, the kind millions of people have with their pensions, etc. So dumb.
I agree mostly, but I feel Newts thinking on Nasa is by far the best.
I think Newt would gain much more ground "if" he would push for mining corperations to get into the business of moon, mars and astroids. This way not only would we get many spin off from putting men on both, but also would start going after resources and growing our wealth.
If you think that the only place that has resources and wealth is earth. Then I feel sorry for you because space has a 9.0x10^100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times the resources then this little planet.
Worried about fresh water? Well, the asterioid belt and europa are a few places with fresh water that would last thousands of years!
Worried about running out of mentals---Moons, asteriods have it.
There is unimaginable gold, diamond, iron, ect to be mined.
Who's to say that we couldn't make it profitable.
If I was newt, I'd do this, but then allow a science lab on the mining base. A town or city could be built around it. You can't do that until you can make a profit and have a job to do so. So this fixes many things.
If humanity is going to go to the stars this is the way we must do it.
