                                                                  NEWT LOST ME..
Newt will need a larger umbrella, if he keeps spouting this crap,
To keep the caca off ...
Until Meet the Press I had my fingers crossed that Newt would run..Not anymore..
I was excited that the former speaker who had balanced the budget, was a historian, knew the Constitution, articulate  supposedly a conservative would win the nod from the GOP.
His interview with David Gregory proved he's not conservative..
It's obvious  he didn't get the message either, "Americans don't want socialized medicine, in any form."
I was OK with he couldn't keep his pants zipped but, I'm not OK with a variations of socialized medicine.
I'm not OK with his call for a guest worker program. In some areas of the US the un-employment is in double digits and he wants a guest worker program.
With companies moving overseas and jobs are being shipped ot of the country, Newt talked about creating jobs..My question for whom? Not Americans if he wants a guest worker program.
Huckabee and Trump have said no..
Please would a conservative step up to the plate. BE #

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Sunday that he strongly supports a federal mandate requiring citizens to buy health insurance – a position that has been rejected by many Republicans, including several who likely will be running against him for the Republican presidential nomination.
Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gingrich told host David Gregory that he continues to advocate for a plan he first called for in the early 1990s as a Congressman, which requires every uninsured citizen to purchase or acquire health insurance.
“I am for people, individuals -- exactly like automobile insurance -- individuals having health insurance and being required to have health insurance. And I am prepared to vote for a voucher system which will give individuals, on a sliding scale, a government subsidy so we insure that everyone as individuals have health insurance.”
"I agree that all of us have a responsibility to pay--help pay for health care," Gingrich said, adding, "I've said consistently we ought to have some requirement that you either have health insurance or you post a bond ..."
Gingrich also admitted that his proposal is a "variation" of the individual mandate, a key component of the Obamacare legislation President Obama signed into law in 2010.
The position staked out by Gingrich appears to be at odds with leading conservative critics of Obamacare, who argue that the law requiring citizens to purchase a private insurance policy is not constitutional.
The Obama administration is currently facing three lawsuits arguing that the federal mandate is unconstitutional, including one filed by a coalition of 26 states.
The issue is on track for a Supreme Court decision in the summer of 2012, which would make it a likely hot-button topic heading into the elections.
