of course, this is a black man saying this, so i'm sure he sees race in everything.
So what he and you are saying is that only minorities have poor work ethic, use food stamps, and abuse entitlements? Cuz that's what I'm hearing.

Pleased with his headway, Norquist is now mapping out how he can ensure further anti-tax victories by securing Republican majorities. In an interview with the National Journal, he mused that a GOP mandate would obviously enact an extension of the Bush tax cuts, work to maintain a repatriation holiday for corporate profits, and even pass House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) plan that jeopardizes Medicare. But when asked what Republicans should do if faced with a Democratic majority that won’t keep the tax cuts, Norquist had a simple answer: “impeach” Obama.

NJ: What if the Democrats still have control? What’s your scenario then?

NORQUIST: Obama can sit there and let all the tax [cuts] lapse, and then the Republicans will have enough votes in the Senate in 2014 to impeach. The last year, he’s gone into this huddle where he does everything by executive order. He’s made no effort to work with Congress.
This is why you can't work with the Republicans.

When you say any of those words in front of a tea party crowd they will conjure up a mental image, I bet you a hundred dollars that 99% don't imagine a white person.

That's what Newt is saying because that's what will get some of the GOP base to vote for him.

I remember that.

Watching McCain throughout 2008 had its amusing moments, but it truly was some sad stuff as well.

He went from someone I respected to a piece of shit in just a few months. I've been saying it for years: that campaign destroyed John McCain as we knew him.

Maybe leave the singing to the President? Yeah, Obama is a better singer. They should just have a sing off to decide it all.

i'm sure i didn't just read an article that said gingrich was somewhat seriously suggesting illegally claiming the moon as a us state and setting up a space outpost there? did i sleep really late and wake up on april 1st?

i suppose it would be cheaper than invading iran.

Here's what Newt literally was saying as opposed to what hear.

Quote:
“I believe every American of every background has been endowed by their Creator with the right to pursue happiness and if that makes liberals unhappy I’m going to continue to find ways to help poor people learn how to get a job…learn how to get a better job…and learn some day own the job.”
