Meghan McCain on Why Newt Gingrich Should Quit After Florida Primary ("Daddy, make bad man leave!")
The Daily Beast ^ | January 31, 2012 | Meghan McCain

Posted on 01/31/2012 6:13:29 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Today is the day of the Florida primary, and it will most likely be the day that Mitt Romney clinches the 2012 Republican nomination for president. I admit that I have a terrible track record of predicting the outcome of elections, but I think it’s pretty safe to say Romney is going to win Florida. The most recent Rasmussen poll has him leading Gingrich by 16 points. The right wing of the party might have fought tooth and nail against Romney, but after a long and arduous primary process, he has now proven that he is in fact the strongest contender we have to run against President Obama.

But somehow, Newt didn't get that memo. This week, Gingrich announced that even if he loses Florida, he vows to stay in the race until the Republican National Convention this summer. I know that I have made quite clear my feelings toward Gingrich, and I have publicly endorsed Romney as my choice for the nominee a long time ago ... but what exactly is Newt Gingrich thinking this time?!? For a man who waxes poetic about the good of the Republican Party and selflessness and leadership, he is now vowing to put his own personal interests and ego in front of everything else.

When Gingrich loses Florida—a winner-take-all state—he will be trailing Romney badly. And Romney will be well on his way to winning Nevada, Maine, Colorado, Arizona, and a large number of electoral votes left on March 6, Super Tuesday—riding high on the momentum from Florida. If Gingrich continues to stay in the race until the convention, the result will be an embarrassing bloodbath that will split the Republican Party in two. He will be giving Democrats time and ammunition. President Obama will only have to continue to reference Gingrich in his attacks against Romney.

Do you want to know what real pious baloney is? Gingrich prolonging his campaign until the convention simply for self-serving purposes. Never mind the hypocrisy that he considers himself a “Washington outsider” even though he spent almost 30 years in Congress. Never mind the fact that Gingrich was ousted in 1998 as speaker of the House because of ethics violations and was forced to pay a $300,000 fine. Never mind the fact that Gingrich worked as a “historian” for Freddie Mac and was paid a reported $1.6 million for his advising. In my world, you don’t get to call yourself a Washington outsider if you have done all of those things. But hey, I think it’s fair to say Gingrich and I don’t live in the same world.

There is something particularly desperate about Gingrich vowing to stay in the race until the convention. When he's up in the polls, he claims the voters are exercising their democratic rights. When he's down, he says voters are having the “party establishment” forced down their throats. You see, Republicans, it’s Gingrich’s world, and apparently we all have to be subjected to it. Gingrich is an avid lover and student of history, yet with all of his knowledge—and despite what you think about him, Gingrich is a very smart man—he still doesn’t want to see the writing on the wall and concede defeat after Florida.

If Gingrich loses Florida and doesn’t concede sometime soon after, he doesn’t get to publicly cry that he is selfless and fighting for the Reagan Republicans and the honor of the party. He doesn’t get to act like he is fighting some noble cause. Gingrich was never meant to make it this far. I personally never believed he was entirely serious about running until he started winning. He mounted a surprisingly lengthy campaign, but did he really expect to emerge as the Republican nominee? After today, what scenario can he logically present that leads him on a path to beating Romney and becoming the GOP nominee?

Tonight is really a time for him to start thinking of the greater good of the party and maybe start petitioning for a position in Romney’s cabinet. At the end of the day, all that matters is what Republican voters want. There is no prize for second place. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Gingrich will leave the Republican race with an honorable exit. In classic Gingrich fashion, he's probably going to make sure he wreaks as much havoc and drama as possible.

MEMO TO MEGHAN: It was your idiot father’s endorsement of Mitt Romney that pushed Newt over the top in South Carolina. Therefore, it was your daddy who insured that Newt would be in this for the long haul.

Happy now?

how she so loves Romney in order to push her queer cross dressing agenda.

PISS OFF MCCAIN

She becomes a republican back in 2008 and now thinks she is the speaker for the party

she can have the party I’m done with the GOP, if there is a third party I’ll vote for that

Why do you bother posting this? I’m not going to read it, and I doubt if anyone on FR really gives a rodent’s rectum what that skank says or thinks.

The reason the MSM carries her stuff — the ONLY reason they carry it — is because they know Conservatives scream and bang their heads against the wall whenever that fat tramp opens her uneducated and grossly stupid mouth.

Ignore the bimbo and maybe she’ll go away. FAR AWAY.

-—The right wing of the party might have fought tooth and nail against Romney——

Why would they do that, if Romney was “right wing”?

I’ll go with the right wing, as opposed to “whatever” is supporting Romney.

Didn't your daddy lose, lil girl?

Go away!

My guess is because there is no Democratic primaries we have Democrats coming over to the Republican primaries to vote for the weak RINO to make it easier for the guy your dad virtually endorsed in 2008 with all his kind words

If Gingrich can make it to April 3rd he has 155 delegates that he can pick up in Texas because no Texan in their right mind would ever vote for that liberal Mitt.

She attended Columbia University, where she “earned” her bachelor’s degree in art history. Wonder who took her tests and completed her homework? If you’ve ever listened to her for more than 10 seconds, you know it wasn’t her.

The only reason the McCains are interested in running Romney, is because it would make the McCain loss to Obama look not so bad.....

However, being a daily reader, I do know that.

It cannot be un-known.

This is an example of why I will not vote for Romney if he is the nominee...

I voted McCain over Obama and McCains are still around making me sick even though he lost.

And I got to be sick knowing I voted for that jerk.

Why would I do that to myself again with Romney?

With God as my witness - I Will Not!

Good grief!

This young woman surely has a reservoir of personal hatred for an American Citizen, former Speaker of the House, author, professor, accomplished conservative and Constitutional scholar.

She is entitled to an opinion - it would help if her article was based on facts and not plagiarized propaganda.

I met Meghan McCain once.

There was this guy standing next to her saying “in...out, in...out” over and over, in a low voice.

After this went on for some time, I finally asked the guy “Why do you keep repeating “in...out, in...out”.

He replied, “It’s my job to remind the imbecile to breathe.”.

It was Gingrich’s debate performance and only his debate performance. He won SC because of the debate and will lose FL because of his debate performance. He needs to hit a homerun on 22 February. It is expected that he is great in debates and must prove that. That is quite frankly the bottom line.

Long and arduous primary process? Mitt has proven he’s the best contender?

We’ve been through exactly two primaries and one caucus. Romney has one victory and that was in (one of) his home state(s).

Ms. McCain’s Columbia degree is evidence that Obama having a Columbia degree proves nothing on the intelligence front.

The right wing of the party might have fought tooth and nail against Romney
_____________________________________

Lil Miss Meghan,

When Rep Duncan Hunter mentioned the “Kennedy wing of the Republican Party” during a debate in 2008, referring to your father John McCain and Williard Mitt Romney, he was standing in the gap for the Conservatives and warning us against the enemies of the future TEA Party members..

Duncan went to great lengths to lay down his life once again for his country, as he did when he fought in Nam as a US soldier..

Romney knows nothing of standing up for this country...

Hes a 2 time draft dodger and has riden on the backs of others all his life...

While Duncan sacrificed his time, money, reputation and oppotunity to be POTUS to fight against that Kennedy delegation who had gotten themselves highly placed in American politics through the Republican Party...

Willie Mitty Romney is a coward and a white and delightsome Obama who will stop at nothing to defeat our form of government as a Republic...

Attacking Newt like a mad dog and wildly accusing him of actions already explained fully and often as lies from Newt’s past political enemies are not the way Reagan operated...

Reagan held the truth in high esteem...

Romney knows no truth...

Reagan was loyal to his friends and the Republican Party...

Romney is out for himself as the delusional “one mighty and strong” even if he has to set his Danite cutthroats after Newt in order to eliminate him from the path of Romney’s imagined future glory...

That girl is so stupid that I can't even count how much she got wrong in this column. She should stick to doing what she does best... eating.

OK, here's the most glaring inaccuracy from the beginning of her piece:

but after a long and arduous primary process...

After two primaries and one caucus are complete, and with three different winners in each of them, Meaghan the Mensa Reject declares not only that the process has been long and arduous, but that it's over and her daddy's protege is the rightful heir to the Republican nomination. Go have a box of Twinkies, Meaghan; and STFU.

Ode to the Grand Olde Party, and their BFF, the Obamanator.

When Newt or Paul rocks the GOP Establishment Boat,
The GOP oarsmen pull knives from their boots.
The hacking and slashing puts extreme fighting to shame,
Never, no NEVER rock the GOP Establishment Boat!
The GOP cannot win elections, by choice of their suits,
A RINO Nominee is a Democrat, - - - - one and the same.

Two Party as One Party is what they adore.
“Never give voters a choice,” ( or politicians
Are out of life-time jobs, - - forever more).

As we pay our bills holding our noses as we vote,
The Obamanator holds his cold, steel knife
To America’s throat - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - .

Megan is a designated spokesbimbo of the MSM. There was another young lady with similar views. I can’t remember her name but I was mesmerized by her commentary. She had larger boobs and showed more cleavage. Megan is a part of the Colon Powell wing of the Republican Party. They will endorse Romney until he gets the nomination, then they will switch to Obama.
