    Newt has a picture of Joe" McCarthy that he keeps in his wallet at all times.

    Every November 14, on Joe" McCarthy's birthday , Newt takes a day of fasting and meditation .

    Such an intellectual !

    Mitt / Newt
    We can make history anyway we want 2012.

    Of course we need to investigate Huma Abedin's influence from her mother and brother who are involved with the Muslim Brotherhood via the different groups the Muslim Brotherhood has created such as the Muslim Sisterhood and her mother represents some of those groups as well as her brother. Seriously, this is easy reading, we can read about her family and the Muslim Brotherhood all over the internet, her mother doesn't hide it. I think we need to make sure Huma Abedin does not feel an obligation to share private matters of our country, of Hillary Clinton with her mother and brother that can in turn be transfered to the Muslim Brotherhood. This is so easy to understand.

    I think they need to investigate whether or not Newt is part of the KKK or another white supremacist group. I mean I don't have any other proof other than he's white (and is white hair can be a symbol of a white hood), but we should still question it because there could be a small chance that he is. (although it's probably a bigger percentage than Huma Abedin being involved with the muslim brotherhood)

    Good old race-baiting Newt. The GOP's Pig-in-Chief.

    The fact that Romney would choose Eye of Newt as a surrogate for his campaign speaks volumes about Romney's character. I hope Newt and Romney will be very happy rolling around in the mud together. There is not enough lipstick to dress up either of these pigs.

    .It was bad enough that Bachman spews out bigotry against Ms. Abedin, and Romney and the majority of her fellow republicans (except Senator McCain) support her ugliness by not openly disavowing her, but the republicans have to drag this guy, with his political and personal baggage, out from under his rock to further slander her is beyond despicable. I hope that I am not transgressing on the Terms of Service with this-but I have to say it-this man is vile. He will do anything, say anything, to increase his marketability.

    Thank You

    I hope that I am not transgressing on the Terms of Service with this-but I have to say it-this man is vile. He will say anything, and do anything, to increase his marketability, and that is why the republicans drug him from under his rock, to continue their attack on this women. Unfortunately, to me, he and Bachman are the face of what used to be a decent political party, and one that I supported for years. No more.

    Thank You

    There is a dirty joke hidden in that headline... especially with Gingrich's perchant for other women.

    Here we go again Gingrich trying to defend the indefensible except that pursuing this kind of anti Muslim philosophy, helps justify Republican war mongering, and refuses to face the reality that the muslim brotherhood will grow as long as people decide to freely join it. If that means an Islamic state with Sharia laws we Americans must live with that or be brutally honest and declare war on the Islamic faith.
    I read thier letter to the White house and it was pur and simple unambiguous religious bigotry as its underlying concern with meaningless " evidence " to support thier wishes.

    Ok.. so despite all evidence to the contrary.. despite the fact that Bachman has less degrees of separation to the Muslim brotherhood then the aide does.. you guys still persist? Kinda like Obama's birth certificate, yeah? or him being a mooslim.. or a socialist, or a communist, or a socialist... ?

    How about we go ahead and take a look at Mitt's taxes. We haven't and won't let him off the hook no matter how many smokescreens the RNC puts up.

    WHERE are the TAXES? Mitt is an America-hating, corporate vulture.

    McCarthyism witch hunts are back. Bachmann is too crazy to be accountable for her actions, but Newt should know what he's doing. Shame on him.

    It's a shame they didn't "probe" that old crook when he was first in D.C. Shameful man.
