Tough for Joe to find bigger scum than himself these days. Thank God Newt came along, right Joe ;)

Well, even Joe Lieberman steps up here.  BTW Newt, the Bible talks about Palestine and under your criteria the Americans are invented too.

Newt is not a biblical historian, otherwise he would not have broken so many commandments.

If the Palestinians are an invented people, so are Americans. We didn't exist as a nation until 235 years ago, and we are made up of a mishmash of people who came from someplace else. The American Indians are the closest thing we have to native people. But that doesn't make us any less a nation.

Remember that Israel was also invented in 1948, with an encouragement for Jews from all over to emigrate.

Forget the rhetoric, the reality is that if the US wanted to recognize the Palestinians and get a solution and peace, it would have happened.  

What Lieberman is criticizing Gingrich for is putting into words what the elites and the military industrial complex actually believe.  Let's not forget that while Gingrich wasn't in any elected office since leaving the Congress, he's been in deep inside the Pentagon and US foreign policy-making.  

Gingrich was a member of PNAC and was on the Defense Policy Board at the Pentagon where, in the days after September 11, 2001, Gingrich and his colleagues met for 19 hours to discuss what to do about the attack. As the New York Times reported, the members of that meeting agreed to attack Iraq as soon as the initial phase of the war with Afghanistan was over. Gingrich said in an interview at the time, ”If we don’t use this as the moment to replace Saddam after we replace the Taliban, we are setting the stage for disaster.”

In a speech around the same time, Gingrich told an audience at the American Enterprise Institute, “We have to talk about replacement, not about punishment” of Hussein.

Hi Marco... I'm a fan... so, what do you think? This is interesting. I can't stand him and think he's dangerous, but at times have always felt that he spoke some truth. Do you agree with what elites and mil ind cmplx believe, do they in fact believe that? Are you saying it serves broader purposes? What are they, to keep the area in constant turmoil? Didn't the British screw this sitution up in late '40's? Haven't read, just saw Exodus in 1960 when it came out. British left those people on that ship, waiting, didn't they seel out the Palestinians?

Sorry for all the questions, was going to post Maureen Dowd's column and saw your post at top... http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/14/opinion/dowd-honeymoons-in-space.html?_r=1&ref=opinion

If Newt was the POTUS, and of course he would have to work on relations between Israel and Palestine....because thats what the US foreign policy does if it wants peace/stability in the middle east. So how would we look and sound with pres newt in the middle of negioations on talks know what he thinks of oneside publicly? If you have a dislike, fine. But that should be kept personal. He really makes it hard to do business in a positive manner there.

How would we look and sound?? Just like the Bush Cheney team

Well Joe, you have sided with these fools on the right and now you are reaping what you have sown. In this case, Gingrich has effectively undermined negotiations between Israel and Palestinians. You can count on him to keep up the destabilizing rhetoric. You must be very proud of yourself for turning against your own people.

Newt is being paid by the military industrial complex. This furthers the warmonger agenda.

Where did he spring up from? Haven't seen him in ages. Maybe he's ingested some sort of 'audacity of hope' like Washington DC which has asked for the return of the downed drone. Now there's genuine audacity of hope!

I say good reddens. He was a total pain in the butt when the President was trying to get the health care bill passed, and did it all just to make himself relevant.

Good buy Joe,... we will miss you like we miss the fly's in the winter.

Newt's rogue cannon mouth is always going to get him into trouble. He's a serial blabber.

Perhaps it's time to inform the Israelis and Palestinians that the US taxpayers are done with them and would like to take the money earmarked to spend on them and have it spent on us?

I hate to admit it, but he's partially right. If Al Gore had become President, there would probably been no 911, because he would have listened to Richard Clark, and not thrown the Bin Laden warning dossier from Clinton in the trash, like Bush did. Everything would have been different. No 911, no Bush tax cut, no deregulation of Wall Street, and of course a HUGE SURPLUS. Lieberman might have been fighting all these things, and working with the republicans to undermine President Gore, but it would still have come out way better for everyone than Bush/Cheney.
