Compared to the current congressional leadership Newt would be many steps up.

The Contract with America is pretty much wharr-free by modern standards - nothing in there about guns, God or gays. The Republicans saw how well Clinton did relying on polls, took the top ten issues that polled well for Republicans, sketched out some legislation and said "okay, that's our platform for 1994".

Somebody should remind Boehner he actually did write part of the thing.

"And what's the deal with all the male staffers?"

Wow. That's like Matt Millen criticizing a team's draft pick.

Gingrich, surprisingly, gets it when it comes to the debt ceiling.
 
2013-01-04 11:35:14 AM  
Criticize and bring inquiry against the president for something that is a basic human act, commonly done, and something you yourself have been caught doing

In this case, boehner could choose crying
 
2013-01-04 11:35:25 AM  
Whatever.

The bottom line is that our government is spending our nation out of existence. Blame spending. Blame tax cuts. Blame solves nothing. The laws of economics are going to grind us to powder.

Have a nice day.

Waitaminute! Lemmegetthisstraight......

There are people out there who STILL take advice from Newt Gingrich?

I don't think that that is true. I don't think the deficit is the biggest economic problem we have.

This is what GOPpers actually believe. Figuring out the cause of a problem so it can be repaired accomplishes NOTHING. Okay, then.

To the original post, there is no need to blame spending or tax cuts. It is far easier and absolutely correct to blame the GOP. Now that we have identified the problem, we can proceed to fix it.

And that's why Europe, with its massive undertakings to shrink spending and implement other austerity measures, is fully recovered from the economic downturn and booming past us.

You created conservative porn, turning Callista into a blonde botoxed Margaret Thatcher. If you can shop Ayn Rand into sex kitten half of congress will pay you $9.99 a month

His outline is tried and true.

Step 1: Make all sorts of promises to win the election, a Contract with America if you will.
Step 2: Ignore all promises made to win the election
Step 3: Become the most corrupt Speaker in history.
Step 4: Resign in disgrace.
Step 5: Profit off the Right-wing Noise Machine.

I tried to figure out what part of my post was to blame for not setting sarcasm detectors off like crazy and was hit with an overwhelming sense of irony. Which is ironic because I was drinking coffee at the time.

I blame Poe's Law Fatigue. Despite the fact the efforts by some of Fark's regular trolls has become so blandly regular and pathetic, it's been going on so long that some people jump on anything that looks trolly when they see it without recognizing the sarcastic notes within. It's almost like sleepwalking.

This is the damage that trolls do on here -- they desensitize us to the truly bad arguments that some put forth around here.

So who is doing all the spending now? Surely it can't be the president.
 
2013-01-04 01:33:30 PM  
Subby;
Eh. While Gingrich was a jackass he was at least moderately competent at his jackassery. He kept his party in line, he got the votes lined up, and did at least some bipartisanship actions. Sure, when he screwed the pooch he farked that poor dog to death but he at least did it with a PLAN.

randomjsa: You mean back when congress was creating surpluses that Clinton incorrectly took credit for?


You know, even if we accept that as 100% true (and it was all Congress, 0% Clinton), it changes nothing about the relative positions of Gingrich, Boehner, Obama and Clinton.

Gingrich is still right - he worked "with" Clinton to get some sort of compromise, while Boehner is content to not work with Obama. There were actual negotiations, not just passive-aggressions traded through staffers and surrogates (there were those as well, but also negotiations).

Paraphrasing John Bender: "Gingrich negotiated. The negotiations were demented and sad, but at least he negotiated."

// put still another way: Gingrich is telling Boehner that he's in danger of having an even lower last-term and post-office approval rating than Gingrich did
 
2013-01-04 01:47:35 PM  
Step 1 - Trade in the old broad you've been married to for 40 years for a newer model; preferrably a female from you staff.
Step 2 - Resign Speakership in disgrace.
Step 3 - Profit like a hooker at a Shriner's convention.

Today, the role of a reasonable, responsible human being will be played by Newt Gingrich, a casting stretch on par with casting Jeff Goldblum as the lead in a a W. H. Taft biopic.
