I love Newt Gingrich, as he comes out and tells it like it should be and will be if he is elected president.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that if elected president, he would defund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, and steer those federal funds toward adoptive services.
“I would like to defund Planned Parenthood,” Gingrich said at a presidential forum on Monday in Myrtle Beach, S.C., sponsored by the Faith and Freedom Coalition. “I want to take all of that money and put it directly into adoption services to give young women the choice of life, not the culture of death.”

Should far-left Dem Rep. Jan Schakowsky, whose husband Bob Creamer was sent to federal prison in 2006 for tax evasion and bank fraud, really be telling other people to “pay their fair share?”
(The Hill) — Opponents of President Obama’s healthcare law are going to take their “best shot” at destroying it this year, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius warned Thursday.
Sebelius, along with Reps. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), rallied a crowd of healthcare advocates to fight for President Obama and his signature domestic program.
“Over the next few months we’ll see the biggest barrage of attacks and misinformation about the law we’ve ever seen, and that’s hard to do — increase the misinformation,” Sebelius said at a conference sponsored by the healthcare advocacy group Families USA. “The law’s opponents are definitely going to take their best shot.”
Schakowsky, a vocal supporter of healthcare reform, warned liberals not to turn away from Obama because they didn’t get all they wanted in the new law.
“Losing in November is not an option,” she said. “It doesn’t make it easier to get single-payer or even a public option. It makes it impossible.”
President Obama acknowledges that there is friction in his relationships with the leaders of Congress. But, in a just-released interview, he blames his problems on “deeply ideological” Republicans and, surprisingly, on his failure to get more involved in the Washington social scene.
“When it comes to Congress, the issue is not personal relationships,” Obama said. “My suspicion is that this whole critique has to do with the fact that I don’t go to a lot of Washington parties and, as a consequence, the Washington press corps maybe just doesn’t feel like I’m in the mix enough with them, and they figure, well, if I’m not spending time with them, I must be cold and aloof.”
Obama said he avoids the Washington social scene because of his family obligations. “The fact is, I’ve got a 13-year-old and 10-year-old daughter,” he said. “And so, no, Michelle and I don’t do the social scene, because as busy as we are, we have a limited amount of time, and we want to be good parents at a time that’s vitally important for our kids.”
But Obama rejected that as the reason why his relations are so rocky with the Republican majority in the House. “The reason we’re not getting enough done right now is because you’ve got a Congress that is deeply ideological and sees a political advantage in not getting stuff done,” he said.
This man talks the truth!
“We saw Senator Harry Reid talk about people being obstructionists. We saw him blame the tea party, we saw him blame senate Republicans. Hes even blamed House Freshman on the Republican side.
But what Harry Reid does not understand simply, the constitutional conservative grassroots movement called the Tea Party stands for this, they stand for fiscal responsibility, they stand for fiscal sanity. And the American people have to balance budgets in their homes. Our small business owners have to balance budgets to run their businesses. So obviously what Harry Reid calls obstructionism. I look at it, he stands for fiscal irresponsibilty. He stands for fiscal insanity!”
Long live our emperor!
