"Newt Gingrich probably thought he was being smart when a week ago he publicly rejected the budget plan put forward by House Budget Committee Chair Paul Ryan. After all, Ryan's idea to change Medicare into a voucher program is profoundly unpopular, particularly with the seniors now enjoying the program's benefits. ... It might have been a reasonable strategy -- in a different era. But in 2011, identity defines politics more than ever. Gingrich's mistake was his failure to understand that particularly at this stage of the race, no question is more important for a presidential candidate to answer than this: Are you one of us?"

  • What on earth are you talking about ? If you knew anthniyg about Mr.Paul you would know that he has ALWAYS been against the war on terror. How on earth has he damaged Pakistan when he has never been part of the US administration ? He has always been a staunch critic of the US foreign policy. Pakistan has damaged itself. Your own leaders have shot the country in the foot.
