Skip to comments.Bachmann Endorses Newt Gingrich (lol)
Posted on 12/15/2011 9:37:11 AM PST by Reaganite Republican
Michele Bachmann is a shameless opportunist who will say whatever it takes to advance Michele Bachmann. To hell with her.
She called him a conservative here. But I thought he is a progressive? Or is it a socialist? No..a marxist! Wait a minute. I think I heard anti-Christ as well. LOL!
I love her politics and was an early supporter, tho stopping short of an endorsement
But she’s scared me off with the negative campaigning and poor management skills- not qualified for president at this time, imho
Burned her bridges for VP, too- stupid if you ask me, there was no need for it
If you saw my Mark Levin post today, ALL these Newt-trashers are being called out... Geo Will called him a commie or something, then we find out his wife works for the Perry campaign!
Watch that bow tie spin lol
Good work - carry on - and God speed.
I like how she fought against Obamacare and she is good with national security but she turned into Nurse Ratched on the vaccine attack on Perry and she needs to try not to scream into the microphone. Her negative campaigning did it for me as well. My brother said she reminds him of someone’s ex wife nagging.
Is THAT RIGHT!!! You are doing an excellent job sorting out the truth. Good for you! I am so fed up with the extreme garbage being floated out there. FED UP!
Never have judged a candidate by what other people say about them.
Have, and do, judge them by their own records.
Proving the critics to be hypocrits/opportunists does one thing...proves them to be hypocrits/opportunists.
Cannot...is abjectly incapable of...proving or disproving the bonafides of the candidate being spoken about.
This has been out there for some time.
Consultants move from candidate to candidate....it’s where they find work.
The media, advisers, consultants, lobbyists and elected officials — the D.C. beltway relationships/marriage stew.
I am totally sick of all the BS mudslinging amongst the GOP candidates... everybody except Gingrich, of course
Honor The Gipper’s 11th !!!
We’ve got a war to win next year... save some ammo and armor for that perhaps
Newt should use this as a campaign ad !!!!
(And we thought Sarah palin came up with “Drill Here, Drill Now” ! Nope - it was Newt !)
Who cares what Bachmann said then and now about Newt, unless you’re determined to miss the point that Newt is judged by his record not what people say about him...as are all the candidates.
All an ad would do is show up Bachmann for saying one thing then and another thing now.
Wouldn’t prove a thing about who is Newt Gingrich.
Trust me...Newt doesn’t need to go down the road of showing up people for saying one thing then, another thing now. lol
Your name choice is interesting...your candidate has said “the era of Reagan is over”.
“...your candidate has said the era of Reagan is over.”
It is. There will never be another Ronald Reagan. What needs to take place is a new era based on Reagan’s conservative principles. Newt claims to be a Reaganite and part of the Reagan revolution. Newt does have some credentials to support that claim.
Energy states like Texas and Alaska and now North Dakota, long ago exhibited the reality of belief in “Drill here, drill now”.
The change is, this that used to be understood in America has now got to become a political slogan in order to re-teach this truth.
In these states and a few others, we still do our best every day to live out these words, despite all the governmental obstacles.
Newt is a free thinker and has written prolifically
He has said and done a number of stupid things over time
I am forgiving all that because he is the most conservative ELECTABLE candidate who’s qualified to be president and can communicate clearly with the electorate
I don’t listen to any bashing of Gingrich unless the other person is going to argue who they are FOR as well... because imho all the other candidates are weaker choices than Noot.
Telling the truth is not bashing.
You are certainly free to screen it out of your thinking, but it isn’t bashing.
My support of Governor Perry is well known.
In his book, Newt said FDR was the greatest President of the 20th Century.
What was Ronald Reagan...chopped liver?
FDR couldn’t shine Reagan’s shoes.
Fine, dismiss it and all the rest.
Because you think he can win.
I don’t know if he can or not, but he’s not who I deeply believe should be our standard bearer nor occupy the exhalted position of the Oval Office on my behalf.
And that goes for Calista as First Lady, too.
There, I said it. (Borrowing from the Great One, Levin).
A communicator who can sell our agenda in difficult and confusing times and beat Obama at debates is essential, imho
I put up a “what about Perry for prez” post a few weeks before he jumped in, and somebody from TX surprised me with the comment on my RR site “Are you crazy, the guy can’t put two words together, and will implode early in the campaign because of it”
That always stuck in the back of my mind... until it all unfolded exactly like that
Big disappointment to say the least- I was ready to back him with that jobs record, but he really blew it imho... and it’s too late to fix that first impression this cycle
BE NICE, Rangerette!!!
Someone posted this to a Perry thread awhile back. I'll pass it on to you.
Honing in on your point that Newt is a free thinker.
Explaining his tendency to sometimes say stupid things.
Does he have to say them just because they cross his mind, or write them in a book for that reason?
I have a lot of thoughts that might not be ready for sharing with the world, even if I had a megaphone to share them.
So let me phrase it a different way...to me, his problem isn’t that he’s a free thinker, or limited to the fact that he speaks his thoughts out of turn...
Bottom line is his standard of what is appropriate to advance in the public arena is...Newt himself.
He’s his own standard of what should be adopted as a public stance. He thought it was good to lavishly praise Hillary...many have forgotten that...sit with Pelosi about Global Warming, say the era of Reagan is over, say FDR was the greatest, praise Andy Stern of SEIU in his book, and on and on, simply because his mind thought of it, period.
Thought it was ok to take millions from Freddie Mac because he was Newt and they asked him.
Converted to Catholicism as a result of Calista’s influence, when that is the same person he had an affair with and was to become his third wife, and put that forward to the public as proof he’s changed. Can’t seem to see how convoluted that is and might be a political turn off to many.
The Newt standard for Newt...another standard need not apply.
I’ve expressed my views.
Nothing to add.
And my support for Govenor Perry is well known.
Yep, no point in comparing Newt to some more-perfect and more conservative candidate, because none such exist
You fight with the army you have
That’s a great tidbit there- thx!
There is no way the general electorate will vote for him. It is also very disturbing to look deeply into his Democrat past. Especially the time period where he supported Al Gore.
The hypocrisy of Mittens and Perry calling Newt a lib is simply amazing
Didn’t George Will go so far as to call Newt a Marxist? Talk about hyperbole. Sheesh
If Gingrich wins the nomination, how is she going to support the Republican ticket? She has called him a socialist. If she is a true Christian and doesn’t bear false witness — well, IMO she already did, many times over, in the debates so far.
