    One of these things is not like the other.
    But they all are similar on the apparent SINGULAR criteria that the OP was using to insult Newt Gingrich. Regardless of whether or not you think that Gingrich is on the caliber of any of these individuals, the fact remains that having an entity you created go into bankruptcy does not automatically suggest a notion that you are unable to be a successful President.

    As one of a majority of factors I can understand adding it to a list of reasons you think Gingrich wouldn't make a good President. However, suggesting based on this one incident of a think tank he founded going bankrupt indicates he'd be unable to address the financial issues of America is ridiculous. It is along the same line as the conservative argument that becuase Obama's never ran or significantly participated in a private enterprise of some sort that it means he'd be unable to address issues with regards to the financial situation.

    They are different, in that you won't readily criticize Jefferson, Grant, nor Truman over anything. However, you are ready to criticize Newt over everything.

    He's a Conservative and you're a Liberal, which is purdy much all you need to know.

    You wouldn't? Especially someone who didn't, "pay their fair share"?

    Wait, of you course you wouldn't. Look how many people Obama wanted to promote, that didn't, "pay their fair share".

    Libbo hypocrisy knows no bounds.

    I think the accomplishments of Jefferson, Grant and Truman far outweigh any criticism about their personal experiences in the business world. Newt doesn't have accomplishments like those men.

    To promote Agrarianism, mandatory grade school for all children, and to kick off the cold war?
