Re: “Haslam, Hagerty Stump for Romney in Memphis

Conservatives win elections by running on and standing firm on their Conservative principles. Newt Gingrich has an undeniable ability to articulate the Conservative view better than anyone. Newt will take Obama to the proverbial woodshed in any debate, on any issue, at any time. Besides, he has the most feasible, well thought-out plans of all the candidates to begin turning our great country around to recovery, prosperity, security, and back to our roots as intended by our founding fathers.But don't take my word for it. Go to www.Newt.org, see for yourself, do more research, then make your decision.

99% of the comments made on Newt Gingrich are inaccurate to put it nicely! Find the truth here....

Don't let the Republican establishment and pundits lead you astray. Do your own research, then make up your own mind, based on facts, not calculated misrepresentations.

Re: “Haslam, Hagerty Stump for Romney in Memphis

I don't understand how people who consider themselves to be a conservative back Mitt Romney when if you do any research at all, as easy as watching him in videos on youtube, you find what he really stands for. There are many videos where he himself speaks to his beliefs and stances on the issues, showing him to be a moderate at the very best, liberal on most.Romney is truly only slightly right of Obama on most issues. I can understand changing your postion on 1 or 2 issues, but to change on the majority of them just reeks of political expediency.

In the general election, Obama would clean Romney's clock just as he did to McCain in 08.Obama will prove him to be the politically expediate candidate he is through the above mentioned videos, showing him espousing his moderate liberal stances on most issues previous to 07, then his sudden conversion to "Conservatism" on the very same issues as he ramped up his campaign for the Republican Presidential primary in 08. Obama will definately portray Romney as a representative of the 1% with his untold wealth and secretive accounts in the Cayman Islands and Swiss banks. This class-warfare will play well with the Democrats and a large percentage of Independants, as well as the mainstream media.Romney will not fair well in the debates against Obama either. He has had few really good debate performances, only actually winning the 2 held in Florida. That's 2 out of approximately 19, enough said!

Re: “On Eve of Super Tuesday, Santorum Takes His “Game of Survival” to Memphis

$2.50/gal gas? American energy independance, which will bolster our national security, not to mention our pockets, our job growth and revenues and therefore economic growth? Finally a declining national debt? It is possible with the right leadership!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOImnCrKPZ8

My vote is going for the gentleman in the above video speaking on achieving energy independance, Newt Gingrich. While he may be a very blunt man, which I actually like and believe is necessary, he is by far the most qualified and experienced candidate to lead our country at this point in history. His record proves this, even showing he was able to achieve needed results by working in a bipartisan manner with Bill Clinton while serving as Speaker of the House. And he did so while standing firm on his Conservative principles. In some cases he had to take on members of his own party to do what he knew was right for the American people. He is a great thinker with bold ideas, and has proven he can convert these ideas into real working solutions, contrary to the inaccurate charges stating otherwise from his past disgruntled colleagues whom he had to take on in some issues. His Conservatism has been proven time and again by his record,receiving an American Conservative Union lifetime rating of 90%, 100% in 1998. He was part of the Reagan team, Nancy Reagan having said at the 1995 Goldwater Institute Dinner honoring President Ronald Reagan, "Barry Goldwater handed the torch to Ronnie, and in turn Ronnie turned that torch over to Newt and the Republican members of Congress to keep that dream alive.". He has endorsements from proven Conservatives ranging from Michael Reagan to Fred Thompson to J.C. Watts. Also of importance is his undeniable ability to articulate the Conservative view better than anyone. Newt has had a very strong showing in most of the debates, winning the majority of them. As a matter of fact, in 2 of the debates he received a standing ovation, which is a rare occurrence. Newt will take Obama to the proverbial woodshed in any debate, on any issue, at any time. And as far as his so called "baggage", that has been thoroughly scrutinized for years, with the majority proven false, save his infidelities and "sit-down" with Nancy Pelosi which he readily condemned himself. There will be no October surprises with him. I implore everyone to visit his website, see for themselves, do more research, then make their decision. It is imperative we defeat Barrack Obama!

Re: “On Eve of Super Tuesday, Santorum Takes His “Game of Survival” to Memphis

Let Santorum's record speak for itself.

•Santorum was a serial earmarker, requesting billions of dollars during his time in the Senate, and not reversing his position on earmarks until he was out of Congress in 2010. As recently as 2009, Rick said, “I’m not saying necessarily earmarks are bad. I have had a lot of earmarks. In fact, I’m very proud of all the earmarks I’ve put in bills. I’ll defend earmarks.”
•Santorum voted for H J Res 47 Debt Limit Increase Resolution
•Santorum voted to raise the national debt ceiling five times
•Santorum voted for the 2005 highway bill that included thousands and thousands of wasteful earmarks, including the Bridge to Nowhere. In fact, according to Club for Growth, “in a separate vote, Santorum had the audacity to vote to continue funding the Bridge to Nowhere rather than send the money to rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.”
•Santorum voted for CAFTA, which removes duties on textile and apparel goods traded among participating nations, resulting in nearly ALL textile companies leaving the South.
•Santorum voted for Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (though he now says he will repeal it), which imposes job-killing federal regulations on businesses.
•Santorum voted against the National Right to Work Act of 1995, which would have repealed provisions of federal law that “require employees to pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment.”
•Santorum voted for taxes in the Internet Access Tax Bill
•Santorum voted for HR 3448 – Minimum Wage Increase bill, which allows punitive damages for injury or illness to be taxed, allows damages for emotional distress to be taxed and repeals the diesel fuel tax rebate to purchasers of diesel-powered automobiles and light trucks.
•Santorum voted to confirm President Bill Clinton’s nomination of Alan Greenspan to be chairman of the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System for a fourth four-year term.
•Santorum voted for Medicare prescription drug benefit known as Medicare Part D, though critical of it now. It is the largest expansion of entitlement spending since President Lyndon Johnson, which now costs taxpayers more than $60 billion a year and has almost $16 trillion in unfunded liabilities, according to Club for Growth.
•Santorum voted in 1997 to support the Lautenberg Gun Ban, “which stripped law-abiding gun owners of their Second Amendment rights for life, simply because they spanked their children or did nothing more than grab a spouse’s wrist,” according to a press release from Dudley Brown, executive director of the National Association for Gun Rights.
•Santorum voted in 1999 for a bill “disguised as an attempt to increase penalties on drug traffickers with guns … but it also included a provision to require federal background checks at gun shows,” again according to Dudley Brown’s release.
•Santorum “came to anti-gun Arlen Specter’s defense in 2004 when he was down in the polls against pro-gun Republican Pat Toomey. Specter won and continued to push for gun control during his years in the Senate,” per Brown.
•Santorum voted with Barbara Boxer in 2005 on the Gun Lock Requirement Amendment
•Santorum voted for the Firearms Manufacturers Protection Bill and then flip-flopped and voted against it in S 1805 – Firearms Manufacturers Protection Bill
•Santorum voted against HR 2356 – Campaign Reform Act of 2001
•Santorum voted for an amendment to the Communications Act of 1934 that requires television broadcast providers to give their lowest rates to political candidates.
•Santorum voted for HR 1 – No Child Left Behind Act
•Santorum sponsored legislation to force companies to pay laid off workers benefits.
•Santorum worked for an increase in funding big government programs like Head Start.
•Santorum voted for taxpayer money to go to Pennsylvania families for their heating bills.
•Santorum introduced and co-sponsored big government health-care bills.
•Santorum voted for HR 796 – the protection of abortion clinics
•Santorum actively supports the Global Fund, which was created by the United Nations to fight HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, but also “channels a large portion of its funds through Planned Parenthood’s affiliates around the world and through a British group Marie Stopes International (the largest chain of abortion mills in the UK, with 66,000 abortions a year.)… to operate in Cambodia, Fiji, Bangladesh, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Burma, Kenya, Tanzania, and other countries,” according to the pro-life Gerard Health Foundation that provides millions of dollars to pro-life groups.
•Santorum boasted of teaming up with Joe Lieberman, Barbara Boxer and Hillary Clinton in his 2006 political ad for re-election to the U.S. Senate, which he lost to Democrat Bob Casey Jr. by the largest margin of victory ever for a Democratic Senate nominee in Pennsylvania and the largest margin of victory for a Senate challenger in the 2006 elections.
•Santorum opposed the tea party and its reforms in the Republican Party and conservative movement just a couple years ago saying, “I have some real concerns about this movement within the Republican party … to sort of refashion conservatism. And I will vocally and publicly oppose it.”
