"I will support this beautiful lady as long as she wants to go," Newton said, as he repeatedly caressed Bachmann's arm.

"That's pretty hot," Van Susteren said.

At the end of the clip, Newton moves in for a kiss, which Bachmann adroitly dodges so that it lands on her forehead.

I think my penis receded into my body a bit there during that clip. Talk about an anti-hardon.

^thanks for sharing That's Fox News porn. Greta thought it was hot

He'll die on that hill. Whoa, I'm impressed


Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum recently pledged to "die on that hill" fighting against same-sex marriage, and made a similar vow to repeal all federal funding for contraception because it is "a license to do things in a sexual realm."

Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania, made the claims during an interview with CaffeinatedThoughts.com editor Shane Vander Hart, according to Think Progress. He declared that no other president had previously discussed "the dangers of contraception" and said that "sex is supposed to be within marriage" and "special."

He went on to describe "the battle" on same-sex marriage, claiming that allowing gay marriage would shake "the very foundation of our country, the family, what the family structure is going to look like."

"I'll die on that hill," Santorum said, pledging to fight for a federal ban on same-sex marriage.



A day after opponents assailed his controversial "999" tax plan during the latest GOP debate, Herman Cain was hardly backing down from his core convictions. And, as usual, the former pizza-chain CEO offered up plenty of entertainment to go along with his policy ideas.

At the Western Republican Leadership Conference on Wednesday, Cain continued to tout his "999" initiative, telling the audience that while his plan will throw out the current tax code, his opponents want to build on what's already in place. He responded to criticism that the plan would further marginalize poor people, telling the crowd, "We're not going to throw the people at the poverty level under the bus."

Cain said his opponents, including former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, were too focused on what kind of plan could pass Congress. He said he wasn't worried about Congress. That's the "difference between a politician and a problem-solver," Cain said.

During his speech, Cain also weighed in on other hot-button issues with some soundbite-ready remarks. On guns: "I like my guns and Bible. Ain't gonna give 'em up!" On China: "My strategy for China is three words: Outgrow China." On American intelligence: "Stupid people are ruining America. But the good news is we can outvote them." (He expressed an identical sentiment in February.)

Later Wednesday, Cain appeared on "Piers Morgan Tonight" for an hourlong interview that touched on everything from Cain's rivals to his frightening experience with stage 4 cancer.

When asked whom among the other GOP candidates he had the most respect for, Cain named Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney; when asked whom he respected the least, Cain responded, "I don't believe Rep. Ron Paul would be a good president because most of his ideas are eliminate -- end -- rather than fix."

Cain continued to take an unusual stand on abortion, telling Morgan that while he thinks life begins at conception, it's not the government's role, or anybody else’s role, to make that decision."

Morgan and Cain also had a spirited exchange about homosexuality in which Cain said, "I think it's a sin because of my biblical beliefs," and said he believed sexual orientation is a choice. Incredulous, Morgan asked, "You genuinely believe millions of Americans wake up in their late teens, normally, and go, 'You know what? I quite fancy being a homosexual?' You don't believe that, do you?"

"Piers," Cain responded, "you haven't given me any evidence to consider otherwise."

Well, not really. We voted Natural Gas into office. Thomas Corbett is just Natural Gas's Christian name.

this again?

i'm thinking that Cain is able to say all the crazy, uninformed shit he says -- people choose to be gay, contradicting himself on abortion in the space of two seconds, his 9-9-9 plan, uz-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan -- and not be called out on it precisely because he is black and the GOP is desperate to prove that they're not a party that gives aid and comfort to crazy, uninformed racists.

or is that racist of me?

Here's a telling graph that shows the effect of Cain's 9-9-9 plan on taxpayers:

Our Last Graph About 9-9-9, and the Only One You Need to See - Derek Thompson - Business - The Atlantic

Quote:
If you create a flat tax, strip out the deductions for working families, and leave investment income untouched, you'll inevitably raise taxes across the board except for the investor class.


So in essence, Cain's tax plan is a huuuuuuuuuuuuge tax cut on the rich and a tax increase on everyone else. Genius!

people should pay for what they get
the less income you have, the more likely you are to use government services.

Michelle Bachmann sure does hate taxes these days. Didn't always appear to be the case:

Maybe she's learned from her mistakes?

For a woman that hates taxes and big government, she and her family have suckled at that teat for a long time.

I only hope she leaves Minnesota when she gets her Fox News gig a year from now.

Bit of a digression but...INDY, was wondering what you in particular think about this. (the race, not necessarily the article)

This again? It's a distractive issue that doesn't matter, but you still have to say "I don't know, have I?". Trump seems to have some sort of hypnotic effect on some of these people. Must be the money and the loud personality.

ABC News

By Arlette Saenz
Oct 24, 2011 10:01am

Gov. Rick Perry opened speculation about whether he is a birther after he gave an unclear answer to the question about President Obama’s birth place in Sunday’s Parade Magazine.

Perry called it a “distractive issue” but gave no definitive answer concerning what he believes, only mentioning he had dinner with Donald Trump, who still doubts the authenticity of the birth certificate provided by the Obama administration last April, according to Perry.

When Perry was asked what he thought of the birth certificate, he answered, “I don’t have any idea.”

A spokesman for Perry said his answer on the matter was very clear.

Trump, who is being courted by nearly every Republican presidential candidate, led a crusade last April to force President Obama to disclose his long form birth certificate amidst accusations he was not born in this country.

Full exchange below:

Governor, do you believe that President Barack Obama was born in the United States?

–I have no reason to think otherwise.

That’s not a definitive, “Yes, I believe he…”

– Well, I don’t have a definitive answer, because he’s never seen my birth certificate.

But you’ve seen his.

–I don’t know. Have I?

You don’t believe what’s been released?

–I don’t know. I had dinner with Donald Trump the other night.

And?

–That came up.

And he said?

–He doesn’t think it’s real.

And you said?

–I don’t have any idea. It doesn’t matter. He’s the president of the United States. He’s elected. It’s a distractive issue.
