  • Boy, those neocons sure stick together. (Or is it the adultery connection that binds them?) Imagine that, the supposed "outsider" (former Fed bank chair) endorsing the biggest insider in the race. What a shocker!

    Let's keep that "fiscally conservative" global offensive war machine chugging along at all costs!

    Source: Herman Cain to Endorse Newt Gingrich Monday
    by Doug Evans - FoxNews
    December 4, 2011

    ATLANTA - Herman Cain might be out of the running as a Republican presidential candidate, but his voice still carries weight with his many loyal supporters. Since he bowed out of the race Saturday, there has been much speculation on who he would endorse.

    Sources tell FOX 5 News that Herman Cain plans to endorse fellow Georgian Newt Gingrich on Monday. They say details of a formal announcement are still being worked out.

    A spokesperson with the Gingrich campaign said there is a 2 p.m. press conference in New York, which would follow a meeting with Donald Trump.

    Voters will start the process of picking the next GOP presidential candidate in Iowa on January 2nd, and the first primary vote will take place in New Hampshire on January 10th.

  • We must never forget the task at hand. That task would be to get rid of this current failed President.
    Negative ads will be Obama's campaign. He has nothing else to run on. Epic fail.

  • JLordtree,

    The only thing that makes Paul an "insider" is that he's tearing down the bloated, corrupt system from the inside. If there's such a thing as an "anti-establishment insider", I guess that would be Paul. It's a contradiction in terms since "insider" implies acquiescence with the inside, but who's counting. He has the "inside" track on what's wrong, and he'll use it to his (our) advantage in restoring the Republic. His Constitutional principles led him all the way to this point, and he got elected to the House to defend the Constitution. He didn't run for office on a whim or to shill for a special interest. He's a great example of rolling up your sleeves and doing it yourself. Frankly, his campaign doesn't need to produce a single ad because his supporters have already independently produced plenty.

    Gingrich calling out Paul's stance on the Patriot Act only solidified Newt's thirst for a war against dissenting Americans. The guy is a war hawk, and the war is coming home. Gotta use all that new urban warfare technology and door-to-door shake-down training somewhere. Why not here?

    What conclusions did the ad want us to draw about Newt's lobbying for Fannie & Freddie that aren't backed up with public evidence?

    If Paul's lack of oversight in publishing a low-budget, periodic newsletter is the worst of his crimes, I'll take it. The guy was busy delivering babies during his 12-year break from Congress when those letters were published, and the words don't reflect his character in any way, so you must have some other hangup with Paul if you can harp on this while ignoring the transgressions of the big-govt, neoconservative, sycophantic, hand-picked frontrunners.

    If you can pretend for a moment that the newsletter fiasco never happened, will you list the problems you have with Paul's policies?

  • BSSpotter, all you are saying is the typical Paulian spin that is showing him as being more "Washington insiders" than letting on. Paul has always been guilty, and it has shown this election yr (Perry, Cain, now Gingrich....which ironically comes on the heals of Gingrich calling Paul's patriot act stance out)of spending his ads ripping other candidates apart over spending time letting Pol know about him. I will say the ad does try to make us draw conclusions not in evidence regarding Freddy Mac payments. What would I expect from a Congressman who cant even control his newsletter writing staff.

  • Our political structure is so far out of line that we have no one to blame but ourselves. Politicians lie, cheat, line their pockets with gold, sell us out to lobbyists and we stand by and reelect them. Honestly, there are some terrific people out there that are willing to run for office that will do the right thing, but politicians and the political bosses are entrenched and will continue to perpetuate their brand of politics. Unless we do something drastic, like vote them out of office the machine will keep on running and it will be business as usual.

  • JLordtree,

    I don't think you can lump this in with the typical "going negative" ads. This ad doesn't unjustly attack Newt's character. It gets to the heart of the reason why he shouldn't be trusted to reside in the White House — his history of employing squishy neoconservative principles. Is there anything in the ad that's untrue? If not, are you not phased by what it contains? Are you ready to get burned by another insider? Do you support neoconservatism?

  • The reason I hate politics ....going negative.

  • It seems to be the sad nature of the political beast today. They all lie, manipulate the system to line their pockets and have no real interest in doing what is best for America. They all feel they are above the law and it seems they are. It is said that a Democracy goes through several phases before it ultimately collapses. America may well be in the final phase.
