And that is according to two former BUSH attorneys generals (which themselves didn't care about the constitution or laws in general)...

Former Bush Attorneys General Call Gingrich Position on Courts 'Dangerous'

Two former attorneys general under President George W. Bush have found a few things to like in Newt Gingrich's position paper on reining in the authority of the federal courts, but other parts, they say, are downright disturbing.

Some of the ideas are "dangerous, ridiculous, totally irresponsible, outrageous, off-the-wall and would reduce the entire judicial system to a spectacle," said former Attorney General Michael Mukasey.

In a 28-page position paper entitled, "Bringing the Courts Back Under the Constitution," Gingrich argues that when the Supreme Court gets it wrong constitutionally, the president and Congress have the power to check the court, including, in some cases, the power to simply ignore a Supreme Court decision.

"Our Founding Fathers believed that the Supreme Court was the weakest branch and that the legislative and executive branches would have ample abilities to check a Supreme Court that exceeded its powers," he argues.

Mukasey and Alberto Gonzales, in exclusive interviews with Fox News' Megyn Kelly, said they are particularly alarmed by provisions such as allowing Congress to subpoena judges after controversial rulings to "explain their constitutional reasoning" to the politicians who passed the laws.

GONZALES of all people say Gingrich is nuts. And that's the guy who set up the war on terror BS... Ignoring the geneva convention, torture is alright, all that stuff.

Gingrich, WORSE than Bush...

Since we are picking on politicians and the branches of our government here, this might be of relevance.

In an interview with KOAA-TV, a local news channel from Colorado Springs, Colorado,
President Obama said, "Where Congress Is Not Willing To Act, We're Going To Go Ahead And Do It Ourselves"

How about that. Obama is will to ignore both the Supreme Court AND Congress.

The Newt doesn't want to be President, He wants to be King or dare I say it.... A Hitler type of Ruler.

Fema Camps would be very useful for a "president" with his morals.

Sure hope he doesn't win, because I promise you, he will find one way or another to "punish" anyone who speaks against him or his Ideas.
