Gingrich-led Republicans stuck to their principles. The result: 4 consecutive balanced budgets, over $400 billion of debt paid off, bipartisan welfare reform, 11 million new jobs, and unemployment falling to under 4%. He will again lead the country with the same results.
Watch as the liberal spin machine tries to rewrite that bit of history....
Nah. You did a fine job of rewriting it yourself!

Tell us about how Unions ruined the country by taking children out of the sweatshops and mines and profits out of the Robber Barons cigar boxes.

Most responsibilities and positions will be eliminated, and its new role will be to help find new and innovative approaches to then be adopted voluntarily at the local level. Newt will steadfastly oppose any national curriculum standards, and will reverse Barack Obama’s nationalization of the student loan industry.
This is big with the independent voters. These voters have longed advocated for a reduction in the federal powers over their child's education.

You my friend are one deranged puppy. Simply put Kerry served and volunteered for Vietnam. Nothing else matters. While every man that actually served with him defend him.Then when returned and he described some of the autrocities that go on in all wars, Iraq has had way more than it's share. If you were to be honest with your hatred, you just might want to start with the Bush administration and how they were stacked with "CHICKENHAWKS" and most every one of them went to great lengths to avoid serving,who never served ONE day. Yours is fanatical and people like you do a great disservice to our nation.
Obama was a fighter pilot in the Crack Indonesian Army too!

Kerry paid 7 guys to back his heroic duty/story!
Over 260 said it was crap!He also signed for some of his own medals that he threw out the window!3 purple hearts in 6 months?

All Republicans dodged the draft especially John McCain!

Traders like IT69 that spreading lies and misinformation are worse than the terrorist threat they sneak around and spread half truths and out and out lies.

American trader IT69 who never served this country one day in any way.She is our problem.

As president, Newt will also be able to imprision his wife in Guantanamo under the Patriot Act rather than serve her divorce papers while she's in the hospital.

If America is to collapse into chaos Obama is the perfect guy to preside. America had a good run of over 200 years. History will remember us as the "Shining City on the Hill" not just during our last days as nothing more than Obama Nation.

President Gingrich. Newt is a nickname for Newton.

When do we ever say President Barack?

(which is very much like the sound a bullfrog makes...when you think about it.)

I'm making that up. I did expect Romney to get the nomination but I think the debates will be a lot more fun if Newt gets it. Obama's a smart guy, Romney's a smart guy, Newt's a dum bass who pretends to be a smart guy. It'll be fun to watch his "Lincoln-Douglas" debates.
Obama's a smart guy....
Have you seen him speak without a teleprompter? And you call that "smart?"

Obama backs and signed the Patriot Act into law. Newt never served divorce papers to his wife in the hospital.

ferret-man, unable to know the truth resorted to lies and slander... typical liberal.
