OK folks – it’s that time again.
Old drums of Freepitude have been piling up to the point that I can’t get to the air filtration controls any more, and that’s just not safe.
OK – blowers are on 10 – let’s get cracking!
First of all, Jim Rob has had two bold red banners up on the index page for some time now :
Strangely, theyboth disappeared this past Monday. I wonder why? Perhaps Jimbo has realized that he’s backed the wrong horse (again), and is preparing to jump on the Santorum Explosion?
But at this point in time(the end of Janurary) it’sballs to the wall for Newtie!
I dreamed of trolling against Newt in my maidenform bra and all I got was this big old zot

Hmm – the mods appear to have altered the title just a tad.
(This thread no longer exists, BTW)
ORANGEBURG, S.C. — Newt Gingrich on Friday backed at least a portion of the Dream Act, saying that he would grant a path to citizenship to illegal immigrant youths who agree to sign up and serve in the U.S. military.
That’s a much tighter standard than the full Dream Act, which President Obama wants. That legislation would allow legal status and an eventual path to citizenship for children and young adults who join the military, but would also apply to those who go to college — a much broader class of people.
“I am opposed to anybody who came here illegally getting citizenship. That’s entirely wrong,” the GOP presidential candidate and former House speaker told a young man who asked about illegal immigrant students. “The only exception I would make is if young people, the ones you are dealing with, are willing to join the American military and serve the United States.”
Speaking a day before South Carolina’s GOP primary, Mr. Gingrich said that would put them on par with any other foreign-born legal resident who joins the U.S. military, and who under the law has a path to citizenship.
Mr. Gingrich’s stance puts him in between Mr. Obama and GOP rival Mitt Romney, who has said he would veto the Dream Act.
************************************Remember the outrage on these boards when the Dems were pushing for passage of the DREAM Act?
To: HoodatYou’re really on an anti-Newt rampage tonight. Who are you supporting? Mitt or Santorum or Paul2 posted on Friday, January 20, 2012 9:34:47 PM byReneeLynn (Socialism is SO yesterday.

To: gswilderSo is this what we have come to as conservatives?Support a serial adulterer
Support a person who supports replacing Obamacare (said there were a good 300 pages of Obamacare)
Endorsed a government mandate in healthcare in 1994 & 1995, and beyond.
In 2003, Newt talked about how the government has to take the lead in regulatory control of healthcare
In 2005, he talks about redistribution of wealth to the poor to support healthcare
His healthcare thinktank has taken in $30 million from insurance companies
In 2011, Newt opposed Paul Ryans medicare reform. Said it was too much radical reform.
Newt claimed FDR was the greatest president of the 20th century
Support a person who made a global warming ad with Pelosi
Supported Government subsidies for Ethanol to reduce GHG’s
Said he believed carbon emissions are going up in the atmosphere
Support a person who would have signed the dream act
Support a person who goes after capitalism (Bain)
Only speaker sanctioned with Ethics issues
Forced to resign from the house (400 members, including 100 republicans voted him out)
Made $1.5m from lobbying Freddie and Fannie
Was critical of Bush’s anti-terror policies
Opposed the surge in Iraq
These are just a few things I am aware of. And they are not conspiracies, lies or things taken out of context. Almost all the items above, you can find a video of Newt saying them in his own words.
To me, it seems like Newt is flipping and flopping as much as Romney.

Impeach the corrupt Marxist bastard!!)To: freedomfiter2Wow, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to elect a real conservative and it looks like we’re getting another hold your nose election. My sentiments exactly. And with McNewt as the nominee, we may actually lose.
To: gswilderAnd I saw a video of him last night talking about replacing Obamacare with another similar plan.You’re finally getting Newt.
He is a technocrat. Full of “ideas” but they all involve tinkering with Gov’t.
He doesn’t really have the vision to return power to the power notwithstanding his “soaring” rhetoric.
Newt is unsteady and will disappoint. Guaranteed.
To: GoMonsterthe Newt leftist here on this board love him working goverment for 20 years then cashing in making 3-5 million a year, but romney can’t invest his own money open up a business and make a real honest living.As someone who has called Romney some pretty vile names I have to wonder why this very important fact can’t even be discussed here. It seems all discussion of Romney is verbotten (sp)–he’s the enemy, and any DISCUSSION of who he is beyond anti-Mormon stuff is out of the question.
I seem to recall a website where everyone heaped praise on Sarah Palin for starting a business and meeting a payroll. I seem to recall a website where Obama was bashed relentlessly for living only in the world of academia and government/’community leadership.’
I seem to recall a website where we wanted Washington insiders out, and people who were actual businessmen were in, and where capitalism was championed–real capitalism, not government payouts, but where failing companies were reorganized and all the realities (some not so comfortable) that entailed.
I keep looking for that website, where having money wasn’t a crime particularly when the rich were giving much of their money to charity (in Romney’s case, this includes many non-Mormon causes). That same site praised Sarah Palin for her devotion to her husband and kids through good times and bad.
Not sure what happened to that site. I keep finding this other one, where a serial philanderer and do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do Big Government guy who took money from the hated Fannie Mae when he wasn’t in government or teaching (not that there’s anything wrong with either, but one needs more varied experience) is being toasted as a conservative icon.
