newt cannot win the republican nomination or we will wind up choosing between 2 big government democrats. (just like the last election, oddly enough).

his freaking hypocrisy that we don't need to follow all the laws of this country, only a few, shows him for exactly who he is-and the amazing thing is he is telling us to our face who he is and what he represents even before the election! as ann coulter put it so well:

In addition to having an affair in the middle of Clinton's impeachment; apologizing to Jesse Jackson on behalf of J.C. Watts -- one of two black Republicans then in Congress –- for having criticized "poverty pimps," and then inviting Jackson to a State of the Union address; cutting a global warming commercial with Nancy Pelosi; supporting George Soros' candidate Dede Scozzafava in a congressional special election; appearing in public with the Rev. Al Sharpton to promote nonspecific education reform; and calling Paul Ryan's plan to save Social Security "right-wing social engineering," we found out this week that Gingrich was a recipient of Freddie Mac political money-to the tune of over 1.6 million dollars.

that is flat out influence peddling, and corruption of the highest order.

we really seriously don't need more of that in this country.

i hope that everybpdy saw that debate and saw newt for exactly who he is......

Maybe Newt's trying to sabotage his own campaign. He may have figured out it's going to be way too much work...lol.

No wonder Ron Paul surged into the lead and the media can no longer hide it!

Newt is right. You can't round up every illegal and deport them. So which ones would you deport. First criminals. Second, those with no family ties, before they make anchor babies. Third, those not paying taxes. Fourth, those not working and on the public dole.
Even if you do deport the illegals the kids can stay as Americans. So you are just breaking up a family and turning the kids against their country. Newt just secured a lot of the Latino vote.

Is that his plan? If you have been in US illegally for 25 years, you can stay, otherwise you cannot?

I'd like some more details in his "amnesty for criminals" plan.

Lefties look at conservatives as if they are alien creatures.

So much so that most cannot even comprehend a common sense approach to a complicated issue such as illegal immigration.

Here's my view.....close the border first.

Then we can begin to process people in a dignified, intelligent manner.

No, he won't ... Perry lost support for multiple reasons and one was his implementation of the "dream act", using tax payer money to send illegals to college, when American citizens don't have the money to sent their own kids to college.
