Just posted that on Glenn Becks site

I just posted that on Glenn Becks site and now they are asking for a list on Romney. HA!!!!!!!!!!

We need one of these for every candidate. Put them in PDF Files and blast them everywhere.

Romney likes to be ignored.

Why ignore Romney? Is it fair to only give Newt all this attention? Is there nothing about frontrunner Romney to be concerned with?

And, don't forget about pRick

And, don't forget about pRick Perry, he has a 15 million dollar war chest and a PAC that still plans to spend 55 million for him!!! We need to build our ammo against him in this lull too!!!

Rick Perry: The Best Little Whore in Texas

a Rolling Stone piece posted on Debbra Medina's We Texans which adds credibility to Taibbi's article. She calls the piece accurate.

http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/rick-perry-the-bes...

Some highlights:

■“On the human level he is a nonpersonality, an almost perfect cipher – a man whose only discernible passion is his extreme willingness to be whatever someone will pay him to be, or vote for him to be.”

■ “Rick Perry brings shallow to a new level. He is very gifted in that regard. He could be the Adolf Hitler of shallow.”

■“Rick Perry has managed to set a scary new low in the annals of opportunism, turning Texas into a swamp of political incest and backroom dealing on a scale not often seen this side of the Congo or Sierra Leone.”

■“Favors are the one consistent thread running through Perry’s political career. Throughout his time as governor, whenever his ideology or his religion comes into conflict with the need to give a handout to a major campaign donor, ideology and religion lose every single time.”

With fair warning the graphic language of this article may be offensive, however, it remains an accurate and an educational read.

CAN THIS SHEET GO INSIDE.......THE BROCHURES

for the counties left we haven't done?? Is there any way to do that??

Because I'm thinking an 8 1/2" sheet stuffed inside the brochure & stapled would really be GREAT....

I think they all need some love

They all need some love don't you think. We wouldn't want to leave anyone out would we?

Get the lists I will make the PDF files.

This is the thread

http://www.dailypaul.com/191304/gingrichs-failed-midnight-ba...

I guess the time limit for "new topics" must have expired, though it was only posted a short while ago and has 36+ votes as of this moment. I posted it and think it is a must read.

If Cain was 999 then Gingrich is surely 666.

Great info! Thanks for sharing.

If you have sources to back these up, that really helps. When ever I pass on information, I like to have something solid to back it up with.

Thank you.

Don't forget that as Speaker

Don't forget that as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives he was reprimanded and received the largest fine ($300,000) in the HISTORY of the House.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/govt/leadershi...

And early in the 90s he was names as part of the House Banking Scandal. He was on the list with 22 bounced checks.

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

How quickly we forget.

Man he is REALLY scary

Stated that a website owner should be considered an enemy combatant, hunted down and executed, for publishing leaked government memos.

Hair standing up on my head now. He makes Obama look like Mr. Nice Guy.

The list is longer, freakier, and linked to corroborating articles at

Is Newt Gingrich a Conservative? You decide
http://www.westernjournalism.com/is-newt-gingrich-a-conserva...

9/27/1979 Voted for Dept of Education

Was 1 of 30 GOP to vote for the Department of Education Organization Act of 1979.
Since 77 Dems voted NAY, 23 GOP were needed to pass it.

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/vote.xpd?vote=h1979-468

This is a great list of crap

This is a great list of crap against Newt, but let's be real here....

We have less than a month to Iowa...

One issue matters most. Time is short.

05/12/2011 – More supportive of individual health-care mandates than Mitt Romney.

The individual healthcare mandate is Newt Gingrich's biggest political liability.

Ron Paul's latest 60 second ad (Serial Hypocrisy) does an excellent job of highlighting this fact of information...it will be the deciding factor.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

I'm not voting for Newt
