    They say he can't win the election, but I would vote for him in a heart beat

    But no matter who runs against Obozo, I will vote for them, but I would like to see Newt in the White House

    Newt's skirts aren't clean either, particularly on the Second Amendment, contrary to his claims.

    Newt Gingrich on Guns: A Mixed Record
    GOA: Gun Owners of America ^ | Tuesday, 22 November 2011 08:18 | Staff

    Posted on Monday, December 05, 2011 3:04:42 PM by Outlaw Woman

    Prior to the “Republican Revolution” of 1994, Rep. Newt Gingrich of Georgia had earned an A rating with Gun Owners of America. But that all changed in 1995, after Republicans were swept to power and Gingrich became Speaker of the House.

    The Republicans gained the majority, thanks in large part to gun owners outraged by the Clinton gun ban. And upon taking the reins of the House, Speaker Gingrich said famously that, “As long as I am Speaker of this House, no gun control legislation is going to move in committee or on the floor of this House and there will be no further erosion of their rights.”

    His promise didn’t hold up, however, and his GOA rating quickly dropped to well below the “C-level.” In 1996, the Republican-led Congress passed the “gun free school zones act,” creating criminal safe zones like Virginia Tech, where the only person armed was a murderous criminal. Speaker Newt Gingrich voted for the bill containing this ban.[1]

    The same bill also contained the now infamous Lautenberg gun ban, which lowered the threshold for losing one’s Second Amendment rights to a mere misdemeanor.[2] Gun owners could, as a result of this ban, lose their gun rights forever for non-violent shouting matches that occurred in the home -- and, in many cases, lose their rights without a jury trial.

    While a legislator might sometimes vote for a spending bill which contains objectionable amendments, that was clearly NOT the case with Newt Gingrich in 1996. Speaking on Meet the Press in September of that year, Speaker Gingrich said the Lautenberg gun ban was “a very reasonable position.”[3] He even refused to cosponsor a repeal of the gun ban during the next Congress -- despite repeated requests to do so.[4]

    Also in 1996, Speaker Gingrich cast his vote for an anti-gun terror bill which contained several harmful provisions. For example, one of the versions he supported (in March of that year) contained a DeLauro amendment that would have severely punished gun owners for possessing a laser sighting device while committing an infraction as minor as speeding on a federal reservation.[5] (Not only would this provision have stigmatized laser sights, it would have served as a first step to banning these items.) Another extremely harmful provision was the Schumer amendment to “centralize Federal, State and Local police.”[6]

    I'll go for Newt. for now. He sure as hell won't throw the country down the brown tube like this piece of $#!% we have now.

    Out of all the repubs. that is running now Newt. and Bauchman are the only ones that seem to have any fire in their gut. The rest of the talk like they don't want to piss anyone off. Wild Bill

    We are getting served a steaming, smelly, pile of dung...

    If Obama gets back in, he will need to appoint just ONE liberal justice and we are screwed, probably for life...

    If we get a RINO and the RINO appoints just ONE semi-liberal justice and we are screwed, probably for life...

    Romney takes a bad rap for "Romney Care in Mass". Those of us that are stuck living here know that a conservative govenor only tries to keep things from being worse. He at least had ordered State police to check immigration status when there was a question in their mind. That was the first thing that govenor Deval Patrick recinded upon election. President O'Bama's aunt and uncle both here illegally and the state does nothing about it except to give her better housing on our dime.

    ABO--Anyone But O'bama!

    If gun control is a real issue to you, you'd better get your act together and throw you support behind Rick Perry and FORGET Mitt and Newt!

    Don't know of ANY dumocrats that are pro gun anymore. Zell Miller was the last one that didn't vote PARTY line when it came to the Constitution.
