Surprisingly, we couldn't agree more

"Congress has an obligation to protect the taxpayer.

"Congress has an obligation to limit the executive branch to the rule of law.

"Congress has an obligation to perform oversight.

"Congress was designed by the Founding Fathers to move slowly, precisely to avoid the sudden panic of a one-week solution that becomes a 20-year mess."

--Newt Gingrich, in a post to the American Enterprise Institute's web site, regarding the rush to fund a private-sector bailout with 700 billion in public money.

  1. First of all, if your gonna smack Jonnie Mac, you should afford equal photo ops for Obama the "present however unopinionated". It's only fair even for you.

    Secondly, Newts' thoughts on domistic policy making is about as useful as cold water is to cleaning bacon grease.

    Thirdly, it was Jonnie Mac who was sounding the alarm bells several years ago with respect to the Fannie/Freddie fiasco however his bill never went anywhere (Thank you Senator Dodd).

    Please pick someone, anyone, else to side with besides Newt. He cheapens your opinions.
