You can deny it all you want but the fact of the matter is you want the US to stand by while Iran obtains nukes and gives them to terrorist groups.
We could have taken out OBL and Al Qaeda in the 90s but we didn't because Clinton didn't think we could convict him in a court of law. As a result, 3,000+ Americans died on 9/11. Another 7,000+ US service men and women have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention those who have been wounded. All because you think people like OBL have Constitutional rights. Clowns like you are a greater threat to the US than the terrorists you want to protect.
Our biggest threat is our national debt and our entitlement debts. A 4-5 trillion dollar war with Iran is not in our best interest. You only think about more and more wars. You all have a better chance of being struck by lightening than of being killed by terrorists. You can't just demand massive military spending forever and wars forever. We have had two wars for ten years. We are broke from it. You can't just stay in a constant state of wars and borrowing money. No one wants to lend us any more money for more wars.

Didn't you see the military man on Gretta's show the other night?? He said that Iran has bits and pieces of it's nuclear work hidden all around the country, that no country could actually go and take those things out, that the reality is none of the other countries can stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. He was on Fox, and he said what Ron Paul said. This country has a bizzillion other problems and no money to deal with any of them. You do not have trillions to spend on more wars. It's not realistic. Rather than live in fear, fear, fear, it's better to find out why this is happening, like Ron Paul says, and to stop the things we do that create these problems. This is not a country that is rich that can fund a new war.

I guess you forgot that *******REAGAN******* made Saddam an ally of US in 1983 (after we knew he was killing Kurds with gas)- which means we enable him to attack Kuwait which caused US to station troops in Saudi Arabia which envolked the wraith of Bin Laden who attacked the US in 2001...

Isn't this fun?

Let's see if we can work our way back to Abraham Lincoln?

LOL... Do you remember who Saddam was waging war against in the 1980's? Hmmmm my guess is you'll have to Google it to find out.

Maybe Newt's momentum is slowing once he came out and said judges who do not follow the constitution (those he does not agree with) should be arrested.

Think there was a guy in Germany once who did that too.

I don't deny for a second that I want the US to keep our nose out of other country's business, just as I expect other country's to keep their nose out of our business.

Unless you want China & Russia dictating what weapons the US can develop, then we have no business telling any other country what weapons they can develop. It's not developing the weapons that is the problem, the problem is the justification of the USE of those weapons.

We lost the moral high ground on nukes the second we vaporized 100,000+ civilians. We justified killing innocent civilians; not suprisingly every other regime on this planet justifies THEIR killing of innocent civilians as well.

Callista is well aware of the days when Newt was Speaker of the House and he would stuff a banana or a rolled up athletic sock in a front pocket of his pants to attract hotties in Washington, D.C. restaurants.
It seems to have no significance with her.

But she doesn't have hair on her knuckles knees and in between her eyes like you. Did you ever get that kooter trimmed up?

ARRESTED !!!!

Presidential candidate and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich suggested today that he would have the Capitol Police or U.S. Marshals arrest activist judges, citing an incident in which a sitting federal judge ordered students not use the word “benediction” in their high school graduation.

I thought he said brought before congress. I'll have to check out the archives before I make a retraction.
ABC= All Barrack Channel. You might check out CBS Face the Nation yesterday for a video taped conversation for a different perspective on what Newton feels on this subject.

Today there is a gallup poll that has Gingrich with 28% to Romney's 24%, and Pauls's 10%. Romney has to win N H, and S C or quit.
Newt is a flash-in-the-pan... he is toast. Romney will win Iowa, NH, and South Carolina, which will capapult him to the nomination. The writing's on the wall. The republican party needs to get behind Mitt and start concentrating on removinig the putrid stench that's occupying the White House.

Newt is a big government conservative (oxymoron?). He is far too liberal to carry the banner of the republican party.
Romney/Rubio 2012!

It's too bad you aren't ejected from the ball game when you strike out.

I'm sure Cain will be back...(cough).

Romney is a Mormon which means he doesn't have any chance in South Carolina, no matter how many tea beggars get behind him.

PS: the putrid smell moved to Texas. It's just taking a few years to shovel out the manure.

It's about the money and power. In politics, it's always about the money and power, no matter what they say.
