Flashback: Newt Took $300,000 From Freddie Mac to Stop Congress From Making Much Needed Reform

Notice, Barack Obama, who had only been in the Senate a short time, was second only to Chris Dodd in the money received.


You know, I got a real issue

You know, I got a real issue with a GSE lobbying the government. What's next, we let the IRS lobby for higher tax rates?


Lobbying Felon Jack Abramoff Calls Out Newt Gingrich’s Corrupt Freddie Mac Deal

In an interview for NBC News’ web-only Meet The Press ”Press Pass,” former lobbyist and convicted felon Jack Abramoff, now a self-styled reformer, told host David Gregory that surging GOP hopeful Newt Gingrich‘s involvement with Freddie Mac constitutes “corruption,” and said of Gingrich’s presidential bid, “I don’t know if he’ll survive this.”

When “Casino Jack” calls you corrupt, you might have a problem on your hands.


This is a two-month old story.

Look at the URL. It was already reported here, there, everywhere. Yet, it is (at the time of this posting) the top recent topic. This is the third time in a week that I've seen an old report rehashed as news. You're sending this to Drudge when he already had this on his site the day it broke.

Sent to Drudge, everyone else

Sent to Drudge, everyone else should too...


When will his lemming followers figure this out? I mean, for gosh sakes, can't we just get someone that's honest? The GRINCH is sickening. Listen, he can be forgiven by God, but after all that's happened in this country, we need someone who is trustworthy like Dr. Paul, and the Grinch is just NOT that man. Period.




On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

Send it to Drudge




bad grammar for Gettingrich

"Freddie Mac was interested in advice on how to reach out to more conservatives. The Gingrich Group stressed that Freddie Mac must be open to reform of their lending practices but that by stressing the historical success of public-private partnerships in achieving public goods at a minimum of taxpayer money and bureaucracy."

That second "sentence" is fail.

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

I just laughed so hard that food came out of my mouth.

since we all know debate moderators won't give Dr. Paul the chance to address it.

Ronmey should have been prepared with this comeback at the debate. The article came out in November. They need to prepare him better.

man, I wonder how many stupid people live in SC.


They lined up on Saturday to be counted

and the count was posted all over cable tv. Weren't you watching?

Regretfully , there are

Regretfully , there are millions of Americans who are just plain ignorant.
As this you tube video watched by 31 million people demonstrates .


I was a student in

US and lived in Oklahoma for 5 years (2001-2006). Most people around the world think Americans especially in this area of the country are ignorant and stupid and this is true for the majority. But at the same time, the smartest people also come out of the US. I mean, look at Ron Paul, and he is a congressman from where? No other nation (certainly not here in Europe) has such a man to be enthusiastic about. Ron Paul is much more than a politician. He is a thinker, a visionary.
Regardless of the outcome of this election, this movement will spread through the world and US will be the place it started.

Don't waste your time trying to be right, spend it trying to get better

that was scary

I wish I didn't just contribute to the view count. Watching this is demoralizing. The worst is that after I finished watching this, the Miss USA South Carolina speech was the next video and I watched it. I am shocked at what I heard. I am surprised she was able to speak AND breathe at the same time.

This is why...

Country that

begins with U - I thought of Uganda and Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan, but for some reason, United States actually did slip my mind.

Ha, same here.

Same two countries, in that order, and laughed at myself, thinking, I know I am not an idiot, but I automatically thought outward, other countries. : )
