Here we go
Legal Insurrection ^ | 1/18/12 | William Jacobson

Posted on 01/18/2012 6:58:25 PM PST by Lakeshark

From Drudge:

"Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband’s career with a single interview.

Earlier this week, she sat before ABCNEWS cameras, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours, and her explosive revelations are set to rock the trail.

But now a “civil war” has erupted inside of the network, an insider claims, on exactly when the confession will air!

ABCNEWS suits determined it would be “unethical” to run the Marianne Gingrich interview so close to the South Carolina Primary, a curious decision, one insider argued, since the network has aggressively been reporting on other candidates.

A decision was tentatively made to air the interview next Monday, after all votes have been counted.

Well now that this is out there, and we have no idea what the revelations are, isn’t the damage done?
**snip**
Howard Kurtz, who is pretty keyed in on media stuff, tweets:

I’m told Gingrich’s ex-wife says nothing to ABC she hasn’t said before — but simply saying it on camera makes it a big television story

If Kurtz is right and the ex-wife has nothing new to say, I predict a backlash in favor of Newt.

I think Gingrich was possible but shaky - with this, I think he's bye-bye.

Incredible: three top conservative contenders down in flames (the first one voluntarily but a wounded warrior). As they say, "You can't make this stuff up."

A word about the GOP.

I wonder how long the GOP has been a soft Liberal party. I believe Reagan stole the party back from the Liberals ("moderates") in 1980. Eisenhower allowed taxes and government to grow crazily in the 50's. How far back do you have to go? I think sometime in the late 1800's/early 1900's, America found itself without a political party that would put America and its Christian, traditional values first. I think ever since then the GOP has put its own interests and political perpetuation ahead of what's best for America.

The country has withstood an amazingly long period of time without sustained organizational and institutional support. May God Himself continue to bless and uphold America against her enemies, within and without, until He returns for His own.

I hope the people of S.C. are smart enough to vote for him anyway, just to send the message that America doesn’t want Mittens.

Just a lame attempt to bury the REAL story of the day, the 200 page report on Romney.

http://cdn2.dailycaller.com/2012/01/McCain-2008-Oppo-File-on-Romney.pdf

plus the story about how Romney is hiding millions in off shore accounts to avoid US taxes.

http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/romney-parks-millions-offshore-tax-haven/story?id=15378566#.TxdCB_nF98E

And the other story revealed today which told how Romney made tons of money from the disposal of aborted babies that it considered “waste”

It will be nothing new. They are hoping to scare off enough Fundies. They know that Newt can't win SC if the Heir of Kolob is to prevail.

Go back and watch the last ABC Republican debate. ABC does not like Republicans. It was one of the worst debates held.

We should be pretty ticked off at Drudge over this. He is helping ABC hype this to inflict maximum damage. There is no there there. This is nothing new. This is the most disgusting politics there is. ABC is trying to influence the election not report on it and Americans should be furious!

They never been able to find a bad thing to say about Obama!

It’s starting to look like we could end up with a match-up between “The One Who we have been waiting for” and Romney. If so, we need to start getting serious about how we’re going to vote: against Obama or not voting (= a vote for Obama). Another four years of Obama is a worst-case scenario IMO.

The ex has just made a laughingstock of herself and I feel sorry for all related to her. She needs her head shrunken.

The entire LSM doesn't like Republicans.

Obama would have lasted less than half the time that Cain did if he had an (R) behind his name.

Good try media though, now ABC can go back to Romney’s people who paid this woman off and say “We tried Mittens, we tried.”

I’m told Gingrich’s ex-wife says nothing to ABC she hasn’t said before — but simply saying it on camera makes it a big television story

It could be something like this: "Be careful, Americans. Don't let him do to you what he did to me. Newt always said I was a vindictive bitch who was out to get him and ruin his presidential chances and after calls by Axelrod and Romney, who had read my remarks back in 2010, I've decided that the American people deserve to hear me say it on air. I'm not a vindictive bitch and I would probably vote for Newt if he got the nomination, but anyone with that kind of attitude is just not suited to be president, even if he is the only one who will rip Obama a new a-hole on live TV. "

Because of his perverted lifestyle choice, Matt Drudge harbors a grudge against Newt for speaking the truth. It’s blatantly obvious what is going on when you see that Drudge is coordinating with the activist homosexual group GOProud to try and take down Newt for their boy Mitt. This is really the lowest of the low.

Good point... I would like to know the date of the “dejected” Newt photo Drudge has posted to support the announcement.

Looking for Newt to rise above this... Perhaps it will be the final trash story.

Why don't you try?

Are you still trying to pretend you didn't know Rickie boy supported Murkie when she ran her write in campaign?

By the way, this thread is about Newt's ex pretending to say something new. Got any real comments?

It’s just starting.

Since they were successful with Cain - they will do this with Newt.

I warned about this quite some time ago, that it would backfire on all the Newt supporters.

I believe Reagan stole the party back from the Liberals ("moderates") in 1980.

I believe the GOP used Pelozi's ethics investigations of Newt to force him out of the Speakers job and the Congress to get Dennis Hastert (Bob Livingstone was a temp with affairs problems) into the Speakers job so the GOP could spend like Democraps. Pelozi knew independents would abandon Republicans and put her in power because Republicans are held to higher standards. Right out of Saul Alinsky.

Once you get that endorsement thing cited -

I do see that you did support Cain earlier.

So I’m going to apologize to you. I thought you were one of the folks who savaged Cain, and I see that this is not so.

So my heartfelt apologies.

This is a sequel to the movie Obama made during the campaign for U.S. Senate?

"Greta Van Susteren: 'I would hold it until after the polls close'"

You dope, of course you will. The damage may not be all that great if the actual interview is tame compare to the SCUM hype.

The Obama servile, complaisant undistinguished media (SCUM) are crowing how fair and professional they are. They are all pukes.

The Obama SCUM have no interest in looking and would never report anything negative anyway about their god.
