ironically, it doesn't matter if he co-wrote the song, what matters is if he owns the rights.

It doesn't take a math whiz to realize that after 4 years of Newt, no one would be able to buy any music at all. Supporting Newt is like slitting your own throat.

Sullivan who is suing Gingrich is only a co-writer too.

Did you bother to read the article? I would guess NO. Typical ignorance from a lefty. Types like you who support Obarfo are ignorant BY CHOICE. You jump on excuses for him without verifying, much like the 99% slogan, grabbing it for yourselves when obviously the Occupy protestors do not represent the hard working class.

Does that mean you subscribe to the republican policy that if we give all our money to the rich, the economy will improve? If so, why hasn't it ever worked? It didn't work for Reagan, and it didn't work for bush jr. Why would you think it so obvious that it would work now that it shouldn't even be questioned?

More like "Butt of the Hippo" instead of "eye of the tiger".

How about "Eye of the Trophy Wife Seeker"??...which means he needs to try again, cause I see no trophy by his side.

Any excuse to pull in your class warfare, anti-corporate crap?

The rock song was used in Rocky III, about winning, and the co-writer who disagrees with his bandmate lawsuit is an Obama supporter planning to sing the song at one of Obama's rally.

So which is it? Still a crappy, phoney, corporate-rock song? Yup. Because Obarfo is a crappy, phony, PR man, and has no substance, like you said.

Whine, whine, whine, said the right winger. The song has nothing to do with Obama. It is a worthless, stupid song Newton Leroy wants sung at his rallies to encourage his foolish supporters to vote for his fat, worthless self.

YOU have no substance. Get lost.

I did read the article, but it doesn't say who owns the rights to the music in question.
.
the rest of your post is just reich-wing rhetoric that you heard on TV, thus proving that you allow others to form your thoughts for you. good for you.
.
your assumption that anyone that would criticize gingrich is a "lefty" is ridiculous!, I'm a republican, and I have no problem criticizing him, he's a disgrace and an embarrassment to the GOP.

Neither Mitt nor Newt is a Muslim so far as I know, and how can a Muslim be "illegal" anyway?
