Skip to comments.Losing Mr. Gingrich (Newt's open Letter to the RNC)
Posted on 12/17/2008 7:49:05 PM PST by NEPAConservative
These days Ive been scratching my head wondering what in the world is going on with a man I used to admire. Im talking about Newt Gingrich. Newts new style of softball politically correct politics has really got me wondering, When did Newt decide to sell his soul ?
Short answer: Yes.
ALL: “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
Let’s pray for people instead of curse them.
We need to exhort, not kick, people who fall short of our ideals.
On the contrary, from his recent posts on his own website he seems to be going on the offensive.
A good backhand says a lot.
Sadly, Mr. Newt is more a political animal than he is an ideologue.
I’ll have to dig into his site a bit deeper but offensive sounds good. I just hope his plan is more than just koombiyah.
Newt has been drinking the global warming kool aid, with Nancy Pelosi, sitting on the sofa with her...
A good backhand while gripping a spatula works wonders : ) I’m just worried that Pelosi’s bullwhip will be too much.
Newt was neutered by the RATS long ago.
I think Newt has 2012 aspirations, and he is positioning himself as a “man of solutions” and not a partisan.
I still think he’s solid, FWIW.
Oh yeah, it’s so terrible that Newt wants to work with Democrats and help solve problems. Let’s castrate him!
Yup, Newt’s gone wobbley. Definately become a “Washingtonian”. Funny how it took him to get voted out of Washington to become a Washingtonian. I will be disregarding him in the future. Let’s not get hung up over him. Time to move on.
It's called 'cultural assimilation'.
He’ll be 69 in 2012 (I think). Why did he avoid running this time around ?
Soft? Already in a liquid state.
Newt is trying to have it both ways: appear aggressive enough to be RNC chairman, but also be “nice” enough to be invited on TV shows and get a big speaking fee.
He hopped in for a week or so and then got out. I think he saw an opening and wanted to, but decided it couldn’t be done given the Republican opposition already had the field sewn up. I don’t know what his plans are for sure, but he is acting like someone who wants to run again. Age will be a factor.
Newt is just trying to be a media darling. Screw him.
He’s never going anywhere. Maybe somebody will give him a show.
Neutered Gingrich. If I only had a spine.
We still have a troll problem here.
Principles change every generation. I want my 401K to go back up, I want my bonuses back, and if Republicans and/or Democrats can make it happen, great.
“Oh yeah, its so terrible that Newt wants to work with Democrats and help solve problems. Lets castrate him!”
Yes. It is. The dems are going to do what they are going to do, regardless. All this kind of behavior does is give the the bipartisan cover they so treasure so that the voters don’t know who to blame when things go seriously south.
The dems and George Soros now own America lock stock and barrel. They are going to mess things up big time. I want it to be perfectly clear who’s fault it is. That’s how Reagan got elected. The dems had control of everything and screwed things up the way socialists always do. That lead to the Reagan revolution. That could have happened in Calif had we not been so stupid as to elect Arnold. Now blame for the disaster that is CA is unclear and the voters will never throw the socialists there out.
I would love to be known as the "cocklebur under the saddle blanket" party. Growing a mutually shared backbone is the only way to regain the trust of the voting majority. Kowtowing to HWMNBN will only perpetuate derision and contempt against a spineless political hack.
I believe I caught Newt's measure when I helped reelect him only to have him immediately resign for a personal indiscretion.
There won't be any 401(k) accounts if the 'Rats get their way. Read the news (not the MSM.)
Growing a mutually shared backbone is a scary way of putting it ... lol ! As far as him having aspirations for a TV show Huckabee may be a suitable place for him.
Are you that naive, or are you playing dumb?
Mr. Tri-partisanship has decided to embrace Global warming, Hillary care and bailouts to name three. He’s being wrung over coals because he’s echoing Democrat policies and Democrat talking points. I don’t care if Reagan rose from the dead. If he did the same I’d slam him down as well.
This obsession with defending people over policies has really got to end. I don’t care if any one of these people were or are your hero’s. I used to like G.W.B. I used to defend him or at least look the other way until he just pushed once too far and that was it. That was my lesson learned. No more. I like Sarah, but if she jumps off the cliff I’ll dump her butt too. Same goes for Jindal, Sanford or anyone else. No more free rides for faces. I expect conservative principles advanced or I won’t give you the time of day.
Newt’s turned, and deserve no respect for having done so. let the media and Liberals fawn over him. that should be enough.
More like a defensive, narrow-minded Looser problem
Want to keep losing? Keep doing what we’re doing.
Oh, and be sure to attack anyone who dares disagree with you.
There is an open war going on in the Republican Party for its soul. Is this party Democrat Lite or is this still the party of Ronald Reagan.
Well, should Newt join in the attacks on Governor Sarah Palin, then we’ll know for certain what side he has taken.
As for crossing the asile, okay, fine, work with democrats to find solutions. But if working means compromising your principals into dust, then that is what you become, insignificant particles under democrat shoes. And frankly, that’s where you belong.
It's all about the money. He's a man, not a saint. Maybe we need a good depression, a terrorist attack on our soil and the complete capitulation of law and order in large areas of our country. The bottom line is that the "Inner Party" and its families need to be affected by this in such a large degree that they flounder, fail and let the proles rise up and take over with novel concepts like,
-rule of law
the right to own property
right to keep and bear arms
freedom of assembly
freedom to worship
Newt talks a good game on Hannity, but comes off with some one worlder crap in the background.
Get it through your head: No base=No wins.
No more Bushes, McCains, Gingriches, Gerald Fords, ever.
Get it through your head:
White Evangelical Protestant males = less than 50% of the votes.
Now and in the future...except in the future it will be worse.
So, is Bush a conservative?
“The dems had control of everything and screwed things up the way socialists always do. That lead to the Reagan revolution.”
Things look quite screwed up now. I have never seen it so bad in my 47 years. I suppose we got thoroughly blamed for this screwed up state of affairs and lost big because of it. I think you are right and the pendulum will swing back eventually, but I think for a while people will feel too negative towards the Republican party to happily jump on some sort of Gingrich revolution or Jindal revolution now. I think the pendulum will swing back, as it always does, but as screwed up as things are today it may take a bit longer than we think/hope.
More importantly, when did trolls ever defend Newt.....
It is not just the religious vote, it also the anti-government vote. The two have a common interest and form a huge voting block.
Nobody here wants to face reality...and what you said is reality. We are no longer the majority. Not even close.
Boo hoo. Somebody is critical of Newt.
So what is your answer? A slightly slower rate of growth in government, and liberties?
“More importantly, when did trolls ever defend Newt”
This is significant indeed !
Out of that sentence, all I am is white and male. My wife is only white. There are plenty more of us out here.
BTW - why would anyone defend Pelosi’s Global Warming lapdog?
“There are plenty more of us out here.”
More, yes. Plenty, no.
This has to do with the law and the future of our country. All actions have consequences and if he broke the law, he has to reap the consequences, what ever this might be. We are not talking about adultery here.
After a couple of years of the coming administration, this may very well become the land of plenty.
Now and in the future...except in the future it will be worse.
What does that have to do with the price of beans in China!?
Republicans lost and will continue to lose when Democrats lied and were not called down for the vile slime that they are. Comity and conciliation is the watchword of a fool!
