Skip to comments.Gingrich's Defense of Bain Capital Far Superior to Anything You Ever Hear Coming from Romney

Newt's campaign debts needed to be paid.
Your Alinskyesque methodology betrays your agenda (freeze the traget and isolate, accusing me of believing I’m ‘the only one not played like apuppet’). So, you came not to praise Newt but to bury him. Are you afraid he might be important in beating little barry bastard commie?
You both have made excellent points. Yes, I agree that Newt is the bigger man to now, after the negative campaigning by Romney in Florids, back Romney. I live in Florida, and out of 9 consecutive commercials, 8 would be bashing Newt, one would be positive. The mute button came in awfully handy.
Reaganite Republican, both Bachmann and Palin (especially Palin) could explain the conservative stand, but I’ve thought they were dismissed by the RNC because they are women. America is not ready for a Margaret Thatcher. I have wondered if this is why Sarah Palin decided not to run. The last 3 times I saw her on T.V. before she announced she wasn’t running, she looked sad/tired/ill/??? She said her family was for her running, and she certainly generated enthusiasm among Americans. This is the only reason I can think of why she didn’t run. I read where she told Michelle “it’s not (her) time yet”. Isn’t that what they told Romney in 2008?
All I can think of with Romney is “Obama lite”.
Actually, I was a Palinista from Nov 2008, and wrote about the first Palin 2012 post I’ve ever seen back then-
I decided before most she wasn’t going to run, so I was backing Bachmann until she really fell apart, I jumped ship to Newt when he gathered momentum at hers and Perry’s expense.
Sounds like we took an identical path, interesting
As a defense hawk, I can’t stand Ron Paul- so now it’s down to the default setting I guess lol
And if he hadn’t taken the opposite tack with Bain back in January, and argued the opposite of what he is now, he might well be our nominee.
The paths are similar.
I went for Bachman, then Cain, then Newt. Never could get into Perry.
Sure wish we had somebody better than Myth.
Hopefully, God willing, we’ll keep the House and take back the Senate.
Sorry, should have mentioned... voted for Newt in the SC primary.
Bump for Newt!
In the article he says attacking Bain failed for Perry and it failed for him, and he can’t figure out why Obama thinks it’ll win for him. So in that sense, it works coming from someone who attacked Romney for Bain Capital.
I agree. Romney is not my first, or even my 5th choice, but he is head and shoulders better than Obama. Personally, I feel we have lost the best candidates by loses in the primaries (Palin was my first choice, but she didn't run; Newt; Cain; Bachmann; Santorum; Perry). What bothers me is when people say “I'm not going to vote for Romney”. This is so foolish. By doing that, they are essentially giving Obama their vote. I've tried explaining this to people, and they look at me like I have lost it.
The RINO Party's political identity centers around its ability to "work with" Democrats. This requires that they maintain the fiction that "working with" Democrats is necessary and desirable. The worst thing that could happen for a RINO would be for the public to realize refusing to work with Democrats would be better than trying to "work with" them to implement their agenda less badly.
