Ron Paul is a Muslim appeasing whackjob who believes Iran has the right to own and use tactical nuclear weapons against the United States.

Any candidate who states time and time that our enemy's should be allowed nuclear weapons especially when that enemy states that they will emulate America off the face of the earth is a Communist, and NOT American.
The man is a FAKE and does NOT know the Constitution

Check out Paul's connection with the Communist party and his plan to completely destroy America.

DC is laughing at him with his senile statements and his babbling BS

Paul will fade away as he did 2x before

Newt Gingrich has my vote. The dems and republicans are shoving Romney down the throats of the American people. They are terrified of Gingrich...and that's appealing.

Amazing how the King of K Street has told the T-baggers he's pandering to, that he's a "D.C. Outsider", since the T-baggers said this is want they want.

And those folks will believe it...as though Fannie Mae paid him 1.6 million because he was such a Outsider to the daily politics on the Hill.

This hypocrisy is what makes t-baggers not being taken seriously anymore. And why real republicans are calling Newton Leroy McPherson's bluff.

If you didn't know, that Newt's real name.

Funny he doesn't go by Leroy. But he does now...for me at least.

You're a liar Leroy.

Newt Gingrich has, in just the psst few weeks, suggested that poverty rates could be lowered by having elementary school children who are poor work -- as janitors in their schools.

Newt is talking about defending marriage from those who want to marry -- craziness in and of itself. To make matters even more surreal, this is a man who was cheating on his wife while vilifying Clinton for cheating on his wife, and he's on his third marriage.

That's only two examples.
How can anyone take this guy as a presidential candidate seriously?

There is only one true conservative running and that is Ron Paul. Unfortunately for him the GOP has been hijacked by the far radical right phony conservatives.

The nominee will be an old christian white phony conservative male. Either Gingrich or Perry will win the GOPTEA nominee.

I can and will. Kids should have the opportunity to work if they want to make some extra cash (my first job was selling fireworks in my grandparents firework stand)I felt so proud when i got paid. Working and becoming a productive member of society is a good thing. As for cheating on his wife...he asked for forgiveness from God..that's good enough for me.

If gay people got married and just simply asked God for forgiveness you'd be fine with that?

Funny, how the right wingers here are now for Leroy Gingrich.

...earlier they were all for Bachman and Iowa Straw Poll

...then it was Perry

....then it was Cain

...now they are all behind Leroy Gingrich.

Are they all carbon copies? Oh wait, you're totally behind who ever is leading in the polls?

First of all, you have to believe Newton Leroy's assumption that those of us who grew up poor, had no examples of working. Both my dad and my mom worked...and I was able to go to college thanks to Pell Grants and loans.

Which is completely false.

Think about those you know who grew up poor, if not yourself, does Newton Leroy's example fit your background?

Newt doesn't have a clue. And it's the typical racist view that the vast majority, if not all, of us who grew up and are growing up poor, is a lazy criminal whose parents are also lazy.

Oh, and I worked every summer after I turned 14 cause in NYC we had the student worker programs during the summer. We worked at day camps, pools, libraries, etc.

I grew up in 2 bedroom apt. Dad, Mom, and 2 sisters. Yes, I shared room with older and younger sister until I left for college. I had great examples of and so did many of my childhood friends.

Newt's example is akin to thinking everyone living in a very rural place is screwing their sister, and don't know anything more than making moonshine.

Send your 5th grader to work after school hours, during the school year...and let it be JANITORIAL work. Then tell us we need to recall child labor laws.

Newton Leroy doesn't even suggest work that can be built on. He suggest JANITORIAL work.

Read between the lines and you can get a clear picture of Newt's misguided view of the world.

Go back to trying to pay your Tiffany bill Newton Leroy. Try managing that debt.

Newton Leroy's thinks 5th graders working with professional cleaning chemicals is a good thing.

Thank God you repubs are propping up a candidate who wants to recall the long standing labor laws.

Hey, when Newton Leroy was IN Congress, did he suggest that they should all work part time...then go back home and find a job?

Nope. I wonder why?

LOL Wow, it's obvious that the people who high-jacked the Republican party hate a true conservative like RON PAUL because he believes we should protect our OWN borders and not the global trade routes of the multinational welfare queen corporations. Stop the welfare financial rape of America!

RON PAUL 2012!

Of course RON PAUL is also angering the welfare queens in the military industrial complex. If we protect OUR OWN BORDERS, it will be much cheaper and more effective than protecting the whole F'ing world.

Unlike your commiecrats, the GOP is vetting their candidates.

You see, your D-dirtbag democRATS have nowhere to go but down.

And it's our job as Americans to see to it that they they reach their destination.

Would those be the same 5th graders that the Kenyan lizard needed a teleprompter to give a speech to? Oh wait, they were 6th graders.

The irony being that the US is the ONLY country to have used nukes against another country, and against the civilian population at that!

The US has ZERO right to dictate how another country is allowed to defend itself. Would WE tolerate China or Russia or France saying we're not allowed to develop nuclear weapons since we have demonstrated not only the desire to use them but have a history of using them against other nations?

Typical hypocrisy.
