Very well stated, Monica!

You would think that since they are losing their audience to FOX News that they would try to be less left and more central in their reporting. Thanks to FOX News for being Fair and Balanced.

Ewolbrom

Simple, consice, and on point. Very well said Dr. Crowley. Any thoughts on this FBI/Bribe conspiracy flying through the net today?

Clark Robinson

Don't forget, that Newt's hypocrisy during his prior marriages was every bit as egregious as the news media's is. As is hypocrisy on global warming, right-wing engineering, Fanny and Freddie, positive campaigns, etc. Sadly, the American people are saddled with the fallout from hypocrisy on BOTH sides.

Fair and Balanced? Fox News? Are you kidding? Surely you jest. FAUX News keeps their audience misinformed about almost everything they report.

Michele Bachmann Says She Will Not Endorse Newt Gingrich

--

Michele Bachmann opines: "For me, these past weeks have been filled with much prayer and personal reflection - which has provided some clarity. Ultimately, I recognize that endorsing a candidate is the responsible thing to do.

But it is far more responsible to ensure that candidate is one I can support with a strong conviction knowing, without any doubt, that they protect our values and have the ability to restore our nation's greatness. With some doubt still present, I am not yet prepared to offer my endorsement, but look forward to doing so in the coming weeks.

However, through this exhaustive process of consideration, it was strikingly obvious that one candidate could not be less acceptable to be our Party's nominee. He lacks the poise, experience and moral fiber to represent our principles and values. That candidate is Newt Gingrich.

In sum, our nation is in desperate need of a proven and moral leader who can point us back in the right direction - not a desperately flawed candidate like Newt Gingrich who has only proven he cannot lead."

Rafe

After tonight, no one will support him.

It'll be between Romney and Santorum. One a vulture capitalist, the other, a christian-extremist. Neither have a shot at taking down the "won".

And so it begins...the end of the GOP party. And good riddance.

Chief Joe

Newt has placed this issue behind him. There is no doubt of his loyalty to his children. Lord Romney, has not dealt with issues - his income tax withholding is singular, his Bain decision making is not explained, his desire to seek office being paramount to issues, and he has not yet explained Seamus.

Did anyone find out if Mitt, is short for mitten?

LongRifle

The ONLY true "Cut the budget, support the Constitution 100%, audit the FED, Pro-life, Pro-gun, Conservative principles,..." candidate is Ron Paul.

If you want more of the same big government over reach and meddling in everything from raw milk to the internet: Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, or Obama will give it to you.

If you want Freedon FROM government; it's Ron Paul.

Rick

Hilarious defense of Newt, Monica! Thanks for my laugh of the day!

You must have complete amnesia to think the media has let Obama off the hook. Birthers, anyone??? Of course, you were a good one for pushing the birther stuff.

Now you offer a defense for Newt cheating on both of his first two wives. Talk about hypocrisy.

I just love the family values theme from the GOP, especially when there's NOTHING to back it up.

Rafe

And keep in mind that Newt wanted an "open" relationship which is okay for some but would you trust a President with that kind of mindset?

Romney - $374,000 is ‘Not A Lot Of Money’

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ot9Bku0K3gY&feature=player_embedded

WowZER

Romney's skills of successfully cutting cost and expenses in failing companies to save them and make them viable again seem to me to be an ideal match for what America needs at this juncture in time.

BUT, Romney misses the teaching opportunity point when he proclaims that "government does not create jobs". We see government jobs all around us, including the one Romney is seeking!

Romney should be pointing out that the salaries and benefits to fund government jobs must by definition come from government tax collections and/or newly issued government debt upon which interest must be also paid out until such debt is paid off through future tax collections.

Romney should also be pointing to government jobs and dead end jobs created by government wasteful government spending not motivated by the motive to make a profit, but instead motivated by paying off special interest groups like the environmental lobbyists, the unions, and large donors with their own agenda for America like George Soros..... SOLYNDRA, GM UNIONS at the expense of GM bondholders, BOEING UNIONS, Green energy projects that will be not be profitable, electrics cars that will be sold at a loss....

thebuckstopshere

exactly how many companies were saved? the success story in Indiana with new technology for producing steel sounds kinda like to me, cutting off USA competition.....as well this venture was not only financed with Bain capitol but GE as well.........GE= Jeff Immelt=Obama Job Czar........

For working Americans to not get behind the guy responsible for this economy, frankly blows my mind

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Texas


as for Michelle not endorsing Newt, sounds like she is still on the Romney payroll, & I have always had the feeling, all the bullsh*t caused in the GOP primaries came directly from that camp....but Bain & GE financing success stories does add a new wrinkle, dontcha think?

BI PARTISAN POLITICS AT WORK!

thebuckstopshere

while GE did not finance the whole deal they did get cozy with Bain.........

The Truth

Funny how all you clowns are on here bitching and moaning about the GOP..... then go to the Huff & Puff Post, MSLGBT, etc... Oh wait no one reads that crap.....
Now, Newt is scum .... sanctimonious azz. Perry is a phony and a Gore lover. So good riddance...
Yet anyone of these people have infinitely higher qualifications than Barry had prior to his ascension to the throne. Bush grew govt but Barry has created his own fiefdom of shame .

Nov 2012 cannot come soon enough

HuskersBob

Great point about the network who wouldn't chase down BHO's past is now on the warpath for Gingrich. I'm so thankful for FNC to bring these points to light! If a person listened to the MSM, you'd think all is well in BHO's utopian world of big government, increased taxes, credit downgrades, etc. and the GOP were the cause of our nation's troubles.
Thanks again for stating what millions of us feel.

Rafe

Nov 2012 cannot come soon enough. We cannot wait to see the door slammed shut and nailed down on the face of the GOP party.

driftersong

Yesterday is history and tomorrow is still a mystery , all any of us really have is right now . And right now this kangaroo administration is doing everything they can to topple capitalism . If i had only listened to a tenth of what mama tried to teach me in my youth i'm sure i could have been governor of both Florida and Georgia by now, mama tried lol . I made a ton of mistakes in my youth but do we not all have a story ? Scripture reads that wisdom is represented as female in proverbs , we all know girls are smarter than us fellas in that women mature much quicker than men in most cases . It seems Newt Gingrich was wild and promiscuous in his youth but , once we men finally do a lil growing up and discover that a womans spirit and mind can is just as attractive and alluring as her hair or hips ever where . We wayward ones finally grow up and " get that " and i'm sure Mr Gingrich has resolved the past with his god and family . I laught to myself everytime i picture my buddy Newt Gingrich standing up at that podium across from Obama in them Lincoln / Douglas debates , i'm sorry folks but Mr Gingrich gonna spank young obamas mind relentlessly

driftersong

p.s. I saw you on Hannity last night Monica , you seem to be more relexed , at ease on H. Hannity vs more combative when you appear on O'Reily . I must confess that at times Bill can be a pin head himself lol

That article Buck linked to sounds pretty darned complimentary to Romney and Bain Capital.

Is Buck trying to tell us he's endorsing Willard?

If so, what will Gringoman think?

thebuckstopshere

DJ, surely if that is all you got from the post & not the Bain, GE connection, you have been reading Jay too frequently.........btw, I'm pretty sure I won't be holding my nose & breaking my streak this go round cause when venture capitalist are inhabiting both sides of the peoples' aisles, what differentiates them eh?

VENTURE CAPITALISTS NEW MEANING TO BI PARTISANSHIP!

Rafe

Ron Paul.

In his 23 years in congress Ron Paul has sponsored a total of 620 bills. Only ONE bill has passed. That singular bill was about turning a private piece of property into a public piece of property.

thebuckstopshere

ya know I really am flumxed..........13th in world economy, so what is this election really about? more of the same insiders trading power, making deals & arrangements, good example Bain capital & GE, Indiana steel plant......& their CEO's running for office or already working for the Obama adm. my, my, my.......

IT AIN'T IRONY, & IT AIN'T LOST ON THIS CONVERT

DJ

From the article Buck linked to:

---

Steel Dynamics was founded by Busse and two other industry veterans in 1993 with plans for a plant in Butler, Ind. They were looking for venture capital to help them.

"It normally takes two years to make a steel plant profitable," Busse recalled. "We didn't have two years. We were running out of money.

GE Capital (NYSE:GE - News) was interested, but CEO Jack Welch told Busse he didn't want to fund the whole thing because it would be the biggest gamble GE had ever taken on a startup.

Welch brought in Bain, which investigated the project. Busse said he met with Romney. Bain liked the deal and invested $18.3 million.

"Their general strategy is to exit early," Busse said. Bain later sold its stake for $104 million, according to a 2000 prospectus from Deutsche Bank.

The private equity firm should have held on longer. Steel Dynamics went public in November 1996, finishing its first month of trading with a split-adjusted price of 4.56 a share. The stock reached a peak of 40.92 in June 2008 for a gain of 797%.

Sounds like a capitalism sucess story to me. What's not to like?

Yes! what we need is another 2 more wars and cutting taxes twice.

There's a true brainhead!

Miss Clinton. He knew about cutting taxes too low.

as, did Bush sr.

With his VooDoo economics!

Will Monica acknowledge Ron Paul when it's just him and Mitt in the race?

The princess has too much sense!

Rafe

None of the GOP candidates are a better choice than Obama. Again, you're just basing that on this insane belief that Islam is infiltrating our Govt. Nutjob.

Newt's own peers have said he isn't a leader. As for Romney - magic underwear? 'Nuff said.

12 posts by Jay and only ONE with a half a statement (no link at that) that wasn't just validating one of the "Regulars".

Ummah, you were right on.


Posted by: LongRifle | January 18, 2012 at 08:26 PM


I've been looking for over a year for just ONE comment from the irregulars that didn't consist of either name calling,"Can trolls get to Heaven" or both!

jay

And, Longrifle before he brings up name calling again. He will find that he started calling me names before I called him one. That applies to all of the conservatives on the memo.

jay

And UG mentioning trying to censor speach. The trolls have never done that.

That's a conservative trait!

Acually Bill Clinton was much better than we have now.

Let's compare the two:

The goat herder pres from Kenya is obstructing the Keystone pipeline project.

President Slick Willie was laying pipe everyday ... sans Hitlery of course.

DJ - Why aren't you flagged at all for the vulgar description of our President?

Liberals are such hypocrites. On one hand they feign being offended by my colorful description of the current POTUS, but don't blink an eye when they called Dubya and Cheney et al racists and a Nazis on a daily basis.

Libs are a cancer on society.

The hypocrites are conservatives. It's always the other guy that does this or that. NEVER themselves.

Was your colorful discription in the same light that Nazis speak about the jews? Colorful or a putdown.
