"I already said that if he wants to use a teleprompter, then it would be fine with me. It has to be fair. If you [were] to defend ObamaCare, wouldn't you want a teleprompter?" Gingrich asked.
"Now, just for a second I'm going to go in the detour and I'll try to explain why I've been and he'll say yes. There are two reasons. The first, is ego. Can you imagine him looking in the mirror?

"How is he going to say that he's afraid to be on the same podium as a West Georgia College student?"
the AZ Republic pooh-poohs the theory that F&F was a scheme to create such havoc in Mexico with US guns that Obama could drive through new gun control laws. That is obviously the case, since they didn't track any guns past the border. Also, they never note that Bush Admin's gunwalker scheme worked WITH Mexican authorities, didn't keep them in the dark like F&F

Gun control has been on the Obama administration agenda although being flying under the radar. Gun control is not generally held in high esteem by most Americans other than the left. I've heard some Democrats recently trying to justify stronger gun control laws on the basis of F & F. What is really needed is to rein in a government who allowed F & F and the death of agents to occur.
