Gingrich assails judges as he courts conservatives

Dec 20, 2011 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.chicagotribune.com

As he works to rev up his conservative base in Iowa with just two weeks to go until the state's caucuses, Newt Gingrich is launching a full-throated assault on a reliable GOP target: judges.

There is little love for the judicial branch among the Republicans seeking the White House. But Gingrich's ridicule has been, by far, the sharpest and the loudest. And it's taken a central role as his campaign struggles to stay atop polls in Iowa, a state where irate social conservatives ousted three judges who legalized same-sex marriage.

Newton Leroy lovers love this idea, until the person doing the firing of judges for taking a opinion they do not like, is a Dem.
This folks, is a dangerous stance to take for any democracy.
We separate the 3 branches for balance. Real conservatives (non t-baggers) agree with all us sensible people.
This is not something that's wanted.
spot on Oneryder, it's would have judges in fear of the politicians-Grinch made another idiotic statement
