He was paid for consulting and they did not take his advice. That is how government works. Pay for all kinds of studies and advice and then do what the politicians tell you to do instead of what you should do. The housing bubble was engineered by Senators Dodd, Franks and Jarvis. The 3 of them are a prime example why we need term limits. They were able to amass enough power that no one could stand against them. Wealth comes with the territory but the real goal is power and power corrupts. It is a narcotic and the more you get the more you want.
An honest politician is one that stays bought.
Newt has the ability and expertise to dismantle Obamacare and get us off the road to Socialism. I dont think Romney will do that. My 1st choice is still Ron Paul. I dont like everything about him but he would shake up the establishment. We absolutely need Obama out now. By 2016, if there is still a country, we may be able to get a real 3rd party with a full slate of candidates.
