Add Danforth...  

The roll call of Republicans aghast at their own party grows. His defense of Sen. Lugar, whom I consider to be one of the best the GOP has ever had, is priceless.
Republican John Danforth, who served as a senator from Missouri for nearly 20 years and later as George W. Bush’s ambassador the United Nations, is not happy with the slate of Republican presidential candidates. “I’ve been watching some of these Republican debates and they’re just terrible. Terrible,” he told KTRS in St. Louis yesterday. “It’s embarrassing for me as a Republican to watch this stuff,” he added, calling out audiences for applauding the candidates’ morbid boastings. [More]
 If the GOP sinks to nominating Gingrich, it could mark the low water point, IMHO.

I enjoy it when liberals like yourself feel the need to berate the Republican candidates. Of course you dont like Newt, he is
CONSERVATIVE. You cant questions Newts intelligence. Some things is his private life, of course. Did you have any problems with Obama hanging with some of the people he did?? Thought so.

Pretty gutsy there Anon1! It's amazing how when we like something we never seem to notice if its not good for us.

Actually I do question Newt's intellect. I would rank him far behind Paul and Huntsman, and even lower than Romney. Saying "fundamentally" ever other sentence does not a genius make.

Unlike social issue conservatives abundant in IA, for one example, I am less concerned with his private life and more with his public actions which have been those of a avaricious blowhard whose one political skill is inciting hatred in the far-right base.

It is therefore illuminating to watch those same folks abandon the same principles they profess to embrace Newt.

What is illuminating is how liberals (claiming to be moderates) justify supporting Obama (the MOST liberal voter in the Senate according to The Heratage Foundation) by spewing THEIR hate (and fearmongering) of conservative candidates instead of extolling his accomplishments (oh I forgot....his failure to lead was the conservatives fault too)
How hipacritical to blame political polarization on "the right" after the Obama,Pilosy,Reed (read it later) health bill.
I can't swallow it any more John, See ya.
