Gingrich apparently things he's running for Dictator of the United States.

It'd be interesting to hear what legal basis he thinks he'd have for such an action. As I recall the idea that the President doesn't have to abide by Supreme Court decisions he doesn't like meme has been circulating among the Far Right for decades. It'd certainly force a Constitutional crisis if he tried to do it which could end up damaging the country in the end. #google+ #politics #laws #Republicans

Gingrich: I’d Ignore The Supreme Court

Newt Gingrich told a South Carolina crowd he’d ignore Supreme decisions he doesn’t like as president.
The Republican contender told a forum of anti-abortion activists ahead of South Carolina’s primary election that as president he would ignore supreme court rulings he regards as legally flawed. He implied that would also extend to the 1973 decision, Roe vs Wade, legalising abortion.

  1. Ah, Newt, ya gotta love him [yes, you really do, or he’ll punish you once he’s elected].
    The scariest part of that meeting was all the Repub candidates stating their belief that life & personhood begins at the moment of conception. Not implantation, not the first heartbeat, not the first brainwaves, but at the moment that sperm hits egg. Say goodbye to any form of birth control that prevents implantation. Say goodbye to the morning after pill. Say goodbye to all rights of women to be anything but baby carriers. Say hello to ‘The Republic of Gilead’.

  2. This jerk thinks birth control and abortion are the same. The fact that he has as much support as he does despite his disdain for the Constitution shows what is really wrong in this country. We already had one president resign after he thought he was above the law. But what is really scary is what will happen if we get another republican congress with another republican president, regardless of who it is. He will be allowed to do whatever he wants, and it will be even worse than what we had with Bush/Cheney/Rove. The tea party will be dictating everything and we will finally lose this country.
