Obama has recently said drilling isn’t the solution, but then talked about how great natural gas is and how it will provide thousands of jobs. Newt decided to make a teaching moment out of this and actually went to a natural gas drilling facility to explain how increasing the drilling for natural gas has indeed lowered the price of natural gas/unit dramatically, and suggested something similar would happen if we would increase our oil drilling production:

        Sorry!! I don’t want Santorum anywhere near the White House. Gingrich needs to pick someone else. Lots better choices out there than Santorum. Looooooottts better.

    • JohnDoe_FormerlyLOGICandREASON

      They wont, and that’s why it’s Romney who will challenge Obama in November, then lose like the others: FORD 1976, BUSH 1992, DOLE 1996, MCCAIN 2008

      We have watched this “most-electable moderate” movie before; the movie always ends in the same way. Actually it’s even silly to think that a guy who could not beat the guy who could not beat Obama in 2008, can now somehow beat Obama, when he has 1 billion dollars and 96% of the media in his team. The only two weapons in the GOP arsenal to defeat Obama in November are OBAMACARE and the ECONOMY. A Romney nomination AUTOMATICALLY gives away one weapon from the arsenal, and the media will do a VERY good job on the only weapon left. The LOYAL MEDIA will explain to ‘unenlightened’ Americans(a majority it seems) why Obama requires a second term to “continue fixing Bush’s mess”, and the unenlightened public will fall for it AS USUAL.

      The Romney talk about “I’m going to repeal Obamacare” which he used a lot during GOP debates actually ends there. Romney cannot, and dares not use that silly line in a general election against Obama; otherwise the media wont simply turn him into a clown, they’ll make him a caricature of a psychiatric patient. Romneycare was the formular used for Obamacare, CASE CLOSED! Any argument otherwise makes Romney look more foolish.

      Just watch and see how the media and Obama machine will turn Romney into a bogeyman and clown, because of the million times he has changed his positions; they show Americans why someone with so much inconsistency is not better than a devil(Obama) they know already, and why he cannot and shouldn’t be trusted. eventually we’ll end up an Obama second term. Personally I CAN’T trust a politician who has no core principles he adheres to. Romney was pro-choice when it is convenient, pro-life when it’s convenient, for gun control when it favors him politically, for 2nd amendment when it suits him, for Romneycare when he governed, now “against” Obamacare.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

        You are quite correct. I have been saying this all along that Romney should never be the choice to go against Obama. With a moderate, we lose, and especially since he authored RomneyCare.

        I think most of America has lost their brain.

        • Happyface2

          BUT BUT BUT You’re missing the whole point.Romney is so much more attractive than Newt and is’nt that what the American people want?Someone who takes a nice picture.Forget the fact that Newt is ten times more brilliant than Mitt Rick and the Bozzo sitting in our White House.The important thing is they take a nice picture.

        • librtifirst

          Maybe the newly filed impeachment proceedings will take off, and take some of Obama’s glory away. They did that to Clinton, but didn’t follow it through to getting him out of office. They just made him a lame duck on domestic issues. I don’t know how that works, exactly, but I remember that they had the ability to get him out, and they didn’t. We’ll have to see where this media blacked out impeachment goes.

      • BHliberty

        You sir are spot on!

      • 3seven77

        The ONLY silver lining there will be should Willard get the nomination is that after he loses we will never be subject to another one of his 7-year long campaigns.

      Obama is punishing America for his pain and anger and perceived injustice.

    Ha – Newt’s already debating Obama every day – challenging Obama’s campaign speeches and answering every one of Obama’s talking points with facts, figures, truth and reality.

    • cabensg

      Many refer to Obama followers as sheeple but I don’t see any difference in the Republican voters so far. Romney, Santorum. Santorum, Romney. I just can’t wrap my head around why they would vote for either one. If either do win the nomination the only way we can win is if we all turn out in full force because whatever either of them says during the general sure won’t impress Independents or Democrats that have come to their senses like those now in the Tea Party. It’s going to make what would have been an uneven fight (us having the advantage) into an even fight.

      God help and Bless America because the voters are clueless.

      Newt/2012

      • MaxineCA

        I watched all 4 parts of that speech yesterday. Excellent! Once again, I felt inspired that if he becomes our president we’ll turn this ship around back in the right direction.

        I would love to see a Gingrich/West ticket (our enemies foreign and domestic would be shaking their boots, for a change).

        And of course Mark Levin as our AG!

        • http://profiles.google.com/ajtelles Art Telles

          Dittos MaxineCa – I’ve changed my “we the people” mind…

          – After mulling it over for a while about the articulate, as Sarah Palin called him, Newt “cheerful one” Gingrich…

          – After watching the 4 part video of the speech titled “Newt Gingrich Speaks to Wake County GOP”…
          >> Part 1 – http://youtu.be/rpa4aCiP1Cw

          – After reading, MaxineCA, your “I would love to see a Gingrich/West ticket” comment…

          I will be voting for Newt Gingrich instead of Rick Santorum in the primary in New Mexico.

          Why?

          To apply the “an idea whose time has come” phrase to this political season, my heartfelt conclusion is that maybe the time has come for the ONLY man with ideas who knows how to articulate the emotion behind the ideas that “we the people” also feel.

          Maybe Rick Santorum should wait until 2020 to pursue the Presidency when he is able to articulate his honorable emotions with focused coherency.

          Well…

          … Go for it all the way to the “we the people” White House Gingrich/West… or whomever Gingrich taps for V-Potus.

          It was good, but you need to see more Newt speeches. He can fire up a crowd.

          He just needs to learn to think before he speaks. (NASA – Cap & Trade – Global Warming – etc.) Then he’d be great.

      • wodiej

        I urge everyone to watch all 4 parts. This man is straight up-it’s not rocket science. How he is not plowing over his opponents shows the severe ignorance in this country. He not only has vision, bold ideas and solutions. He is great at communicating them. He’s a statesman and he’s also scrappy and wont’ take any BS from anyone! Not the media, not the press, not Congress-not anyone.

  • SpikeT

    Love Newt. I love his instruction to the silly potus with the big ears, small ideas and was “present” so many times yet never learned how to take care of BUSINESS.

  • http://www.thechristianmessage.org/ Pastor emeritus Nathan Bickel

    Excellent. I hope that Newt uses the basics of this utube video for a campaign ad.

    Maybe Obama would understand the concept of drilling for gas and oil if he would commit himself to a hospital. Perhaps, several drills into his head could release his misconception’s pressure fog and help him to understand some fundamental things about home grown American energy.

    • StNikao

      OBAMA belongs to OPEC.

    • wodiej

      omg….lol. That is just NOT RIGHT!! heehee

  • Nukeman60

    You go, Newt. It looks like Obama will have to ‘fundamentally transform’ his speeches from now on. If Newt hit every one of Obamas talking points this way, which he usually does, Obama would be reeling, the press would be stumbling, and the Republican election campaign would be soaring.

    Of course, Romney says Obama is a nice guy and is only ‘a little over his head’. Sounds like the language of McCain (John, not Emoticon Meggie).

    • NYGino

      McCain said Obama is a patriot intent on using his Presidency to advance our country’s cause. Nukeman60, you’re right we’re hearing an echo.

  • http://twitter.com/PJRodman Paula J Rodman

    I wish everyone would quit suggesting that Newt or Rick drop out…how about Mittens drop out? I really love the way Newt takes the message to Obama and I think Rick would too if they quit asking him about birth control pills…Rick is more of a foreign policy wonk than he’s been given credit for.

    • nibblesyble

      True, Newt has praised Rick several times regarding Rick’s foreign policy stature, saying Rick has been telling people for years that radical Islam is a problem for the west.

    • wodiej

      a website had a survey asking if Newt should drop out. (most said NO). One of the choices was “why don’t they ask Ron Paul to drop out?” I thought that was kind of funny. He is not threatening to the other 3 but he is pulling enough votes that it would make a difference to the others.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

      I agree. Newt/Rick would turn this country around.

  • NYGino

    Newt’s not afraid to take a get down to the facts, pull the curtain aside, forget the BS assault on our country’s prime threat, the current occupiers of our White House.

  • capelady

    Milton Wolf of the Washington Times said that Newt is the only candidate who has put Obama on the defensive, and as Newt came out with his new American energy plan for $2.50/gal gas … Obama immediately got out there to spin it…. and he said that Newt just won his first debate with Obama!!! And this is just the beginning! We have to give Newt the nomination because he is the only candidate that has the knowledge, the solutions, the courage, AND THE COMMUNICATION SKILLS, to beat Obama!!! The national polls mean nothing because most Americans are not even paying attention yet. The establishment uses them to manipulate the voters because they don’t want Newt to win – he will turn Washington upside down and they are very comfortable with their status quo!

    • Nukeman60

      The national polls mean nothing because most Americans are not even paying attention yet‘ – Capelady

      So true. This is a very important point. Most people across the nation are not like us. They aren’t ready to listen to the debate just yet.

      I heard a pundit tonight say that Romney is the ‘most electable’ because the polls say he is. That is just circular reasoning (the people think a certain way because the polls say so, and the polls say so because people think that way. Arrggg. It’s a self-fulfilling prophesy).

      • nibblesyble

        So true Nuke….this has to be the most frustrating process. Sigh, I wish I could go back to the good ole’days where I didn’t know a Newt from a Mitt. Ignorance is bliss!

        • Nukeman60

          I don’t know. Ignorance is contented. I don’t like contented. Give me the Truth, every time :)

          • nibblesyble

            Crap…you are supposed to encourage me to be ignorant again! You are right though…truth is a powerful weapon in one’s arsenal.

          • nibblesyble

      • poljunkie

        Yep, how many people do you know vote based on ( ughhh) who the local ( or national) paper endorses?

        Ive never understood that.

        Even when I was young and stupid. HA. (Years ago, when I was young and not interested in politics I could never understand why people would vote en masse based on what the daily news paper suggested they do!)

        • wodiej

          You notice too that every time a candidate wins a caucus or primary, they’re popularity goes up. When they lose it goes down. Why? Perception and lack of knowledge. I started out supporting Gov. Palin. When she said she wasn’t going to run, I did some research and got on board w Gingrich and haven’t wavered since. Alot of people are just easily fooled and manipulated.

        • cabensg

          When I was young and stupid and even older and stupid about politics I did the country a favor and didn’t vote. All this BS about everybody should vote and it’s a responsibility doesn’t include the most important part. Be informed about the candidates. Only informed voters should vote. This would certainly exclude almost all the people that voted for Obama in the last election.

          • wodiej

            everyone should have to take a basic history test before they can vote.

      • wodiej

        another problem is some people just aren’t too bright. Huckabee had 3 people on last night that were on his panel for the Forum last week who posed questions to all 3 candidates. The guy with the knife store said he liked Romney because he seemed sincere and didn’t have on his political face. WTH is that supposed to mean? Nothing about policy or solutions. He just thought he seemed sincere. The young guy said Santorum lied about something he fact checked later-he seemed sharp. The senior citizen lady did say she thought they were all good but didn’t say who she supported. Probably afraid she’d get tarred and feathered. She seemed bright too. That knife store owner…..DUH.

        • 3boojums

          i shut the tv off, when, after asking Newt tough questions, they asked Williard about lemonade stands

        • Nukeman60

          What amazed me from that Huckabee forum was the only sound bite people saw afterwards, and saw and saw and saw, was the ‘tender’ moment of Romney where it supposedly showed his ‘kind, humane’ side. Ptui!

          He didn’t answer the question properly, responded as any politician would, and people are saying they’ll vote for him because the questioner cried? I felt for the guy, too and I pray for his son, but Romneys answer did not warrant days upon days of TV exposure.

        • jollyjellybean

          I thought the young college kid was a SNOB.

          • nibblesyble

            and not very realistic about politics either…ahh the young.

    • wodiej

      that is also why they feared Gov. Palin. They knew her record from Alaska and that she would kick a** and take names later if she were in the WH. Same thing Gingrich did as Speaker and also a very good reason why they like each other. See, she’s one of those real Christians who doesn’t go around judging everyone-she just tries to be kind and leaves to God what needs to be left to God and sees the potential in people in spite of their mistakes.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2AYRITGII2XF25M7FQLGJIS6KM KM

    C’mon Newt… Obama is not interested in low gas prices. To think otherwise, is insane on our behalf.

    • RosiesSeeingRed

      But you have to admit Newt is pretty brilliant, knowing that Obama is not interested in lowering gas prices, to challenge him like this, because he ALSO knows that Americans DO want gas prices to go back down. By openly challenging him on camera like this, he’s pretty much painting Obama into a corner. It’s great. :-)

      • lostdutchman

        I suspect this is pretty much what Newt means, if he is the nominee and BO won’t debate him, by dogging Obama’s speeches and offering commentary/rebuttal the day after.

      • REHLV

        The real problem is getting the people in our country to see these videos. The media has pretty much suppressed most of Newt, totally discounting him and his run for the White House.

        • RosiesSeeingRed

          You’re absolutely right that Newt is discounted in the media, but ever the optimist, the fact that the $2.50/gallon gas already got under Obama’s skin and caused him to include a rebuttal on the campaign trail tells me that Newt has successfully established the debate with Obama on this subject, and anything Newt now says on that subject, especially when directly pointed at Obama like this “teaching moment” was, will goad Obama into a response. And if he responds, which I think he will because Newt is essentially mocking Obama in this video, the media will cover it, and they’ll have to include the background info (Newt’s statements) in order to put it in context.

          And so, the next time a person goes to fill up their tank with gas and pays $80 to do so, they’ll remember Newt saying he can get prices down to $2.50 or lower for the same reason natural gas is cheaper now, and they’ll remember Obama saying that’s not possible. And it will start to sink in…. I really think Obama’s stuck between a rock and a hard place right now. He’s either got to agree with Newt to give the american public the assurance that he knows how to lower gas prices, or he has to stick to his guns and say it’s not possible to do it.

          But I DO totally agree with you that Newt has been largely ignored since Santorum surged; however, I see it a change in that since he came out with his energy plan. He’s making progress… the turtle, just moving in the right direction, slowly but surely. :-)

      • wodiej

        I thought it was pretty cool too because he did it spur of the moment. He was on his way to a rally, saw the drilling station and decided to stop to record the clip at the last minute. Got it on the internet and the video spreads. How much did that cost him in dollars? Practically nothing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Skip-Thompson/100000245516633 Skip Thompson

      It is not his baggage that is hurting him, he is way past that. It is the concerted effort of forces that fear him. They know the truth will set us free, they do not want truth it would cut into their power & control.
      It is the lies about his past that might be hurting him with those who will not stop and listen and use their brains. The contest has become a beauty contest, and I fear that will lead us even further in to the depths.

    • Trust1TG

      Baggage and scandal can be overcome. One past president actually fathered a child out of wedlock…Grover Cleveland and he turned out to be one of the better presidents. History of presidential scandals:
      http://americanhistory.about.com/od/uspresidents/tp/presidential_scandals.htm

      Better to have a repentant, redeemed, always conservative Newt, than an unrepentant liar, far-left liberal, robber of pension funds, vulture corporatist, grabber of taxpayer funds, high official in a false religion Romney.

      As far as I know,
      Newt has never has sought or allocated taxpayer funds for his own use or special projects, only for the public good.
      He did not use his power in office to bring harm to the economy or to the American people.
      He was acquitted of ALL ethics charges brought against him in an effort to get vengeance for his opposition to the actions of those in power (you can identify them by their endorsement of Romney).
      His reforms were principled to bring people out of dependency to dignity and self-sufficiency.
      He has not betrayed his country or violated its Constitutional principles.
      He never voted to raise taxes.
      He has not lied about Romney or Obama or Santorum or any of the other candidates.
      His votes were conservative, pro-life, pro-marriage, even when his personal life was a mess.
      He had the good sense to repent and get help when he fell – and he has made peace wherever possible with those he hurt – that takes humility – and we certainly need a president with humility and self-scrutiny.

      Also from GA, I have known him for over 50 years. In my work and studies, I have known many others with the same childhood backgrounds, who even though gifted in many areas, had lives that followed the same behavior pattern as Newt did, trying to find identity and numb inner pain with either sex, substances, achievement, money… when only GOD, through the saving grace of Jesus Christ, can restore integrity, identity and healing for what ails us.

      Newt did what psychologists recommend – get help to deal with the real and deep hurts of his life, face the truth, make amends, turn the past into good. He made peace with his family, mother, father, etc. He also used his skills and experience for good, wrote books and made movies on the principles that made our country great. He has achieved healthy, affectionate, respectful relationships with wife, children and grandchildren.

      Many of us have been hurt, hurt others, dealt with our hurts in destructive ways…and by the grace, mercy and power of GOD, received help we needed, power over our sins, new vision to use our life for good.

      I Peter 4:1 says it best (paraphrase): Those who have suffered painful consequences of sin, have ceased from sin. (they are cured, hate their sinful tendencies, want like all-get-out to avoid it in the future.)

      • wodiej

        A big Amen to that. Adversity can build character. It is very difficult to confront our pain and mistakes. But what is worse is to go through life making those mistakes over and over with no resolution, no growth, no peace and constant chaos-making excuses and placing the blame everywhere but ourselves. I know people personally who absolutely refuse to confront their demons and this is what their life is like.

        If I may, some other Bible verses that are quite appropriate:

        “For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again.”- Psalm 37:23

        “When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.” 1 Peter 2:23

        “Just so I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” Luke 15:7

        • Trust1TG

          Excellent choice of Scriptures, wodiej.

          Unfortunately, many who are condemning Newt have forgotten how much they have been forgiven themselves, and stand hard-hearted, judgmental and resentful, like the elder brother in Christ’s parable of the Prodigal Son.

          Though I am one of the blessed and forgiven prodigals myself, I still have to fight to forgive others when they fall… it’s easy to become like both of the brothers in the parable at times. It takes God’s grace to do God’s work of forgiveness…especially when we are the ones hurt. However, forgiveness is the only way to freedom, peace and joy.

          • wodiej

            I agree.

      • Trust1TG

        Therefore, because Newt is repentant, has learned from his mistakes, has matured.
        and because he and Callista has turned their lives into almost a tribute to our founding principles,
        I believe Newt truly loves this country, knows and respects the Constitutional principles, precepts and laws upon which it was founded,
        I believe his motives are worthy of our great nation…to help restore us for the sake of future generations.
        and I believe those who have endorsed him are also trustworthy, many of whom would gain nothing from their endorsements:

        Thomas Sowell, PhD, economist
        Art Laffer, PhD, economist

    Good spot analysis by Newt. It would be great if he took the rest of the primaries by storm.

  • librtifirst

    Natural gas, oil, and hydrogen are all viable sources of energy that could be mined and created here at home. Wind is only useful in certain areas, and couldn’t do it alone. Solar is basically a joke, as I have researched the viability of it. There are other technologies that have been suppressed, and could increase the efficiency of these fuels considerably. Americans could, and should do things to curb usage, but not as a mandate from government.

    NEWT !! Ya know what alot of people dont get this… its gonna take a HARD LINER.. to rid of us our problems.. whats breaking the nation? ENTITLEMENTS? Thats it.. so whoever actually does something to end the stupidity.. to fix it … will be an outcast…hated.. berated.. mocked.. but THAT is what its gonna take.. THIS IS THE MAN.. that can take the heat.. I DONT THINK THE OTHERS CAN ! This guy LIVES being hated.. has been for over a decade! GO NEWT GO !! Im with ya.. all day !

  • 911Infidel

    Truth be told Newt, Obama doesn’t know anything about anything. He’s a political troll. It’d be a cold day in hell before Obama graduates from being a Marxist ideologue to the Klintonian version of pragmatism. Obama is one of those elitist jackwagons who profess themselves to be wise, but are only fools. You can’t fix stupid, Mr Speaker. The moonbat in the WH, is too busy stopping the rise of the oceans and healing the planet to pay attention to anything remotely intelligent on energy production. Real hope will only come when the Keynisian fraud is gone in November.

  • REHLV

    Newt seems to have the heart of the country. His statements here about drilling, and his statements I read on Drudge about the new show on ABC, GCB, based on the novel “Good Christian Bitches”. This man is not afraid to call it as it is, let the chips fall where they may. You wonder why he is hated by the left, media & some republicans? We need to support Newt and let him use his God given talents to bring America back to sanity.

    • K-Bob

      Better to go to Breitbart for these things. Drudge has become unnecessary.

      You can find Newt’s quote at breitbart.com

      • Trust1TG

        Excellent – Newt.

        He actually challenges the media: You wouldn’t dare make a show like this about Muslims.

        He a deadly accurate in truth-telling, dissecting issues and handling media.

        He does it like a gentleman, a scholar and a statesman.

        Love what he said about Romney being ‘severely non-factual.’

    • wodiej

      couldn’t agree more. Santorum or Romney said anything about it? Doubt they have even heard about it. People are worried for the values of the country and so many of them support Santorum. But Gingrich is the one who keeps talking about religious bigotry and the attack on it-not Santorum.

  • cabensg
  • lostdutchman

    Just listened to Mark Levin’s interview with Dr Thomas Sowell, (also with RS, in this same posting) who, only recently, told Mark that he was endorsing Newt because, as he said, we need someone who has worked in/with Washington, NOT the PRIVATE sector, (Romney, I wonder?) except for a stint as Gov of Massachusetts.

  • johnos2112
  • alex1913

    Republicans just need to go around the MSM and take this issue directly to the people by making ads like this for every congressman and senate candidate as well as whomever gets the parties nod for president. The media will be and has been spinning the Obama lie that he and his energy dept. can’t do anything about it and the line on how the republicans are just using gas prices as a political ploy to make his highness look bad. Dirty little secret folks… gas prices are one of the major reasons Obamas reelection is not in the bag. That presser the other day when Obama was staring down the Fox reporter was case in point. Obama and his cronies know it’s hurting his reelection chances and the GOP needs to step it up a notch and do what Newt did here and pound on this issue! Lets go boys and girls! Give em the truth- that’s what hurts the dems the most… :)

    As an O/T break for you overnighters, if you want to listen to some really cool music while you sit in front of the old TRS-80, poking them keys, I gotta recommend a visit to my man, Thayrone X at WAAM in Ann Arbor.

    This ain’t spam, it’s just a tip from your resident rock band guy (I’ll spam ya later!). He plays an eclectic mix of blues, soul, old-school hits, and indie stuff people send him. It’s just really good music (most of it).

    Anyhoo, the link is to his Bone Conduction Music Show page on the Thayrone.com website. You have to download the show (using right click) and play it on whatever mp3 player you have on the computer (usually Media Player). The good news is that you can then put it on your iPod or whatever.

    Bonus for RS fans, Thayrone has a daytime show that’s Conservative/Libertarian (ish).

    Rock to it!

  • kong1967

    It’s funny how it’s put forward as a “teaching” moment for Obama, but it’s more of a teaching moment for his supporters. Obama knows darn good and well how both oil and natural gas are produced, but he knows his base is easily fooled by propaganda and lies.

    • wodiej

      you make a good point but his supporters won’t be taught by it. We would have better luck with conservatives learning something. Most liberals I’m afraid just refuse to listen to rationale.

      • kong1967

        The libs won’t listen to rationale because they have other agendas. If you believe in global climate change (man made), you have to side with anti-oil. If you believe businesses are greedy and the rich hog all the money, you have to side with anti-business and anti-capitalism. Regardless of how badly it will destroy this country if they succeed with their goals, they just can’t see it coming. When a teacher says to me that we should shut down oil and ride bikes, he is so stupid and so out of touch with reality that common sense is out the window. Liberalism is a mental disease and they just don’t know it.

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        You got me thinking… I feel like there are two kinds of liberals: the ones who think they are intellectually superior (usually the ones with money as well), and the ones with their hands out. So I agree the elites will likely be unable to be taught anything, but they don’t care, because they can afford to fill their tanks with gas at any price and will happily do so in the name of environment. They’ve never let facts get in their way before, and they’re not about to start doing so now.

        BUT, the ones with their hands out — that’s an entirely different story. These are the people who fell for Obama’s campaign infomercials back in 2008. The fact that they are always looking to get something for free tells me they have no interest in spending more and more money at the gas pump. It also tells me that they will believe the person who has the best offer. So their choice will be: live with the gas prices which “necessarily” have to rise or choose the person who says he can lower the price of gas.

        I don’t know, maybe there’s hope a few of them will respond to Newt’s deal? Just wondering what you think.

        • Nukeman60

          You bring up an interesting point about liberals, that there are two kinds. I guess we could call them the ‘users’ and the ‘usees’. Together they become Obamas ‘useful’ idiots. You’re right, the ‘users’ will never change. But they are the 19-21% that vote Obama no matter what.

          The ‘usees’ will change only if we show them a better way than Obamas freebies. Free is hard to beat, but if they see that what is free is never actually free, then we may have a chance to change their minds.

          Obama uses the class warfare of the 99% against the 1%. We need to show them that it is actually the ‘taxers’ against the ‘taxees’. When they see that they are the ones being taken, then they, too, will rebel against it.

        • wodiej

          the problem is alot of those people do not have any personal income. Many not only get food stamps but they get monthly cash too that they can purchase other things with. My guess is people like that don’t vote much. The liberals that vote are the wealthy ones. jmo

        • NYGino

          Rosie, as a man I gave up trying to understand women and just resigned myself to the fact that they are natures most wondrous enigmas. As a conservative I gave up trying to understand liberals and just resigned myself to the fact that they are natures biggest mistake.

          • Nukeman60

            So would a liberal woman be a conundrum wrapped in an enigma? Or is that a condom wrapped in an enema, as Emoticon Meggie would say.

            • NYGino

              All of the above, and seeing that the government wants us to pay for their condoms I guess it’s only a matter of time before we are paying for their enemas. Seems like they got us coming and going.

    An African-American pastor in FL is calling for Romney to renounce the racism in Mormon doctrinal writings.

    His letter or sermon is very instructive about Mormon teachings and racism in Mormonism – http://www.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeedpolitics/santorum-support-demands-romney-renounce-his-rel

    This is serious vetting of Romney.

    Here are some resources that compare Mormonism with basic Christian doctrine:
    http://irr.org/mit/is-mormonism-christian.html
    http://mormoninfo.org/
    http://www.albertmohler.com/category/topics/mormonism-topics/

    Of course, Obama can’t accuse Romney over the issue of racism, because Obama’s religions, Marxism, Islam, Black Liberation Theology (Nation of Islam and Jeremiah Wright’s teachings) are and his friends ascribe to these racist, classist and hate-based ideologies.

    Moreover, there are similarities between Mormonism and Mohammedanism:
    http://onenewsnow.com/Perspectives/Default.aspx?id=1468930

    Evidence gives weight to the likelihood that both religions allow Taqqyia (lying) as a means of obtaining power.

    • NYGino

      Good point. It’s insulting when a person panders to their ‘audiences of the moment’ to show that they are one of them. Our impostor in chief not only dresses for the crowd but he mimics their speech patterns. What you see and hear is not the real person and it’s apparent.

      Indeed it could have been; probably no amount condescension with regard to BO is quite enough; nor could it possibly equal the utterly unwarranted condescension that seems to be a permanent feature of BO’s near-delusional – if not psychopathic – pyschological profile.

    It is high time someone points out the ignorance of your current dear leader.

    To have him elected for the highest office reflects more the intellect or the lack thereof of those who vote for this guy.

    The “57 states and one to go” should have been a good clue…
