Hear, hear! I see this as a win, win situation. If people would stop the hand-wringing they may just see the glass is half full. But only if conservatives keep pointing out how questioning ethics is NOT equivalent to questioning capitalism. BIG difference. This gives conservatives a chance to show the world that we really DON'T want to push Grandma off the proverbial cliff.
BTW, Sarah Palin just spent 10 minutes on Hannity taking up for Perry on this, trying to help him out by reframing the question to one of ethics. Interesting to watch. Twice, she said something like, "I think what Rick Perry is saying is..." (paraphrasing)
Newt shouldn't have backed down this morning. It makes him look wishy-washy. Again. I bet he's kicking himself now that romney has essentially said his behavior was no different than obama's with GM bailout.
The best thing about all this is that Santorum got to stay out of the fray.

I saw that, too, and was proud of her for supporting Perry.
As i watched this, it hit me as seeming a little odd -- a little uncharacteristic of her. Especially since she's supposedly ticked at Perry for running in the 1st place "when he said he wouldn't." Then it hit me. I wonder if she heard the rumors about a Newt/Santorum ticket, so she's playing the odds. lol. She already got Todd to back Newt, so maybe she's covering all the bases. ;)
