Skip to comments.Senator and former House member Lindsay Graham Praised Newt Gingrich on Greta
Posted on 02/01/2012 7:46:18 PM PST by mitchell001
Graham said that what Gingrich did as Speaker back in the 90's while Bill Clinton was President was something to praise and appreciate. Graham was in the House while Gingrich was Speaker. This points out something to me. Truth is very important. It should be. For Santorum and Romney to cloudy the truth about Gingrich to garner votes is despicable. During the month of February, the Truth about Gingrich's legislative and conservative success will be clarified. Also, the Truth about Santorum's spotty success and spotty conservatism will be clarifies. Lindsay Graham has begun the Gingrich clarification.
That can’t be a good thing.
The kiss of death from twinkletoes!
Ouch, that’s going to hurt. That is the last thing Newt needed. heh
I think Lindsay is Bipartisansexual.
He said he led the coup against Newt. That Newt would agree with everyone about something, go talk to Clinton and come back and reverse what he agreed to and he said now that he has been there a while, he feels he probably was too hard on Newt. Kind of strange....
lol ya truth is very important to ya...a rino praises your guy so you go all to pieces
No good can come from a endorsement by Lindsay.
****Gay poodle sighting alert***
Well, yeah, I guess....if you think “I think Newt is a danger to himself and others, but I think that about Obama, too” equals praise.
Miss Thang was smiling and slipping in the knives sideways.
Couldn’t stand to watch Lindsey......Makes me sick when he starts talking about his “Intelligent” approach to Energy Policy and Immigration. Can’t wait until 2014 when we can vote him out of office!
lol. If anyone knows a true conservative it’s Lindsay Gramnesty
A South Carolina Senator should be kissing up to Newt, after his victory there.
Wow! It’s the “Listhp of Death!”
yes, it really was, to my great, great surprise!
has anybody else noticed how many vanities are being posted in news/activism lately? It used to be if there was one a day, it was a lot. Now it seems there are half a dozen a day.
The only person Grahamnasty has been hardon is McCain!
Let me re-phrase that...
Oh, never mind.
Here it is....
Yep....but Newt is a real conservative huh? Not attacking you, but kinda tells ya something huh?
I no longer have a dog in this fight.
For somebody who doesn’t know anything about those days, it cleared up a lot for me. I don’t care who said it, it will enlighten a lot of people I know, too, who just don’t get what they are talking about... Lindsay said “now I understand” and now he sees how tough you have to be to change DC... it was excellent. I have already sent out a stream of emails asking if anyone knows where they can get a youtube or transcript of it... It was that important to me, and will make a big difference to a lot of people I am trying to bring along in their understanding of Newt... I have always thought anybody dealing with Boehner and ilk on a daily basis, would probably go crazy, this speaks to that...
If we are to have any of the constitution remaining for the next generation, Ms. Lindsay, Mr. McLame’s girlfriend, must go, South Carolina! Get rid of him! Don’t be fooled by his lies close to the election! That is how we ended up with his Mittens loving boyfriend for SIX more years of backstabbing!
Dick Cheney also had high praise for Newt in his book, “In My Time.”
Is Newt gay?
Now I am not in anyway a fan of Linsdey Graham but at least he is willing to acknowledge history. So many of the ‘proud’GOP establishment would not have the career they have had it not been the success of the ‘Contract with America’ that nationalized the Congressional elections in 1994. And thus far NOT one of the characters that took leadership positions after Newt was forced out accept responsibility for their failures. NOT ONE!!!!!
Wasn't Mitt Romney still a democrat, and Santorumn a pup in the Senate back in 1994. Warts and all the lesson I learned from Newt is that individually each citizen is endowed by the Creator with specific ‘rights’. And to never accept the deception that a majority or minority, a judge or president has authority to give or take these rights.
Newt did great things in 1994. He is a brilliant man. He might even be a great President. However, he is just as likely to be a terrible, destructive force, holding back conservatism for years to come. He is too unpredictable and has too many skeletons for today’s media environment. Sorry, its the truth.
He joined Juan McCain in attacking Newt and helping Mitt at the crucial moment. Now, when it’s a day too late, he comes out on the other side.
I wonder what this means. I can’t imagine a poodle like Lindsay doing this unless the usual suspects told him to.
Are they afraid that Gingrich might tank after his defeat, and want to keep him in the race to divide the conservative opposition to Romney?
Frankly, the last thing I would expect is for Lindsay to finally see the light and do the right thing.
Naw... that'd be Bwarney Fwank.
Oh, my! What will the Skipper say?
I think he’s figured out that Milt is not the slam dunk that the media & GOP-e keep telling us he is. Since Rick Santorum and Wrong Paul have almost no chance of being nominated, that leaves Newt. Guess he doesn’t want to be on the wrong side of our next president.
IT makes sense that the weasel is hedging his political bets, but he is not to be trusted.
Jim DeMint was singing the praises of Mitt on Real News.
Everything that should be up is down and everything that should be down is up.
God help us.
Uber RINO Lindsey Ping
"Republican by day, Democrat by night."
Want on or off this ping list?
Just FReepmail me.
h/t to martin_fierro for the graphic
OHHhh I think I get this...
THE ESTABLISHMENT DOES NOT WANT TO LOOK LIKE THE ESTABLISHMENT!
This is making sense!
The establishment does not want to look like the establishment!
So they are coming out in apposite views.
Heard that — almost fell off the bed!
It looks like Lindsey Graham might go both ways.
Yeah, hilarious. Lindsey Graham gave an excellent defense of Newt, and people here are still hating on him.
I agree with you completely, it was a very good interview. Whatever people might think of Graham I think that he was upset about the lies that Romney has been telling about Newt.
Romney has gone pretty far over the top in the last few weeks. I can not believe how arrogant he has been. When he called Newt "silly" and "pathetic" I was stunned.
You know, I think Rick Santorum's winning strategy here is to engage in a "Allright you two knuckleheads, knock it off" Third Way campaign strategy. I mean, that was his loudest cheer line in the Florida debate, it would appeal to millions of voters. I have seen some good polling figures that shows in general Republican voters, and strongly in specific all voters, are simply fed up to death of the Gingrich-Romney scorched earth feud and they are not political wonks like many of us here on FR. What appeals to them is cooling the rhetoric and attack ads, and targeting all fire on the Obama political camp. I think if he could drive that home in Missouri and Colorado and Minnesota, he just might climb up in the polls. We have seen GOP candidates' ebb and flow in this horrific 2012 marathon for the Nomination and the Presidency. I don't see any way for RS to do poorly with such an approach at this stage. This will hit a real resonant chord at home within millions of families' homes, guaranteed. (With the exception of a few limited broadsides here and there, which is politics of course, I think by and large this is what Herman Cain was trying to do, until the liberal mass media salivating for a race card advantage for 2012, savaged him).
Miss Lindsey was a class-A ass back then, but like he said he has matured and so has Gingrich and he thinks now, looking back, that Newt was right. None of the coup wanted to make Clinton look good. Newt was looking out for the country, not Bill Clinton. That’s basically want Graham is saying. This should be a bigger story that it is. Miss Lindsey led the fight to get rid of Newt, now he’s saying Newt was right and he also said he’s the only one who can go into Washington DC and changes things. Said he has done it before and can do again. Said no one can articulate conservative ideas like Newt Gingrich can. Sounded like an endorsement to me. I couldn’t believe I was hearing it.
