Sarah is a real conservative. Newt is a fraud.
Just because everybody flipped out and went crazy during the primary season pretending the last 15 years of Gingrich’s statements and politics doesn’t exist doesn’t change the truth.
For every brilliant, articulate statement Newt makes for something, you can usually find an equally brilliant, articulate statement Newt makes AGAINST the very same thing! Sometimes, within the same speech. It’s not an accident, it’s by design and how he covers his bases. Then, whichever way the wind is blowing, he can point to the statement that best suits the audience.
Example: Newt said the era of Reagan is over and that we need a Big Tent. Now he is trying to promote himself as the champion of the Tea Party and Conservatives, whom he accused were trying to socially engineer the government from the right.
If Newt Gingrich were a chess player, he’d have been Bobby Fischer, considered the greatest ever, but reigned for only a few years because he was undisciplined.
Example: In 1960, Fischer was blown out by Boris Spassky playing against the Kings Gambit (1.e4 e5, 2.f4 exf4). Fischer was so pi$$ed off that he wrote an article titled “Bust to the King’s Gambit”. It was so effective that that variation in chess in Grandmaster play almost virtually disappeared overnight. In fact, nobody ever even bothered to challenge Fischer’s ideas playing the King’s Gambit against him again because they’d assumed White would be in an unwinnable situation.
Ah, but in the 1963 US Championship against Larry Evans, guess what Fischer played against Evans, as White? The guy who destroyed the King’s Gambit, whipped it out himself for a crushing victory with White. He did this about 4 or 5 times in a career.
To this day, some people still wonder. Did Fischer really Bust the King’s Gambit, or did the King’s Gambit bust Fischer?
Note: I am pointing out the similarities between the two of taking two sides of an issue and looking brilliant on both sides, and mean no correalation between Fischer’s extremist Paulistina views and Gingrich’s.
Thanks to my job, which involes a lot of local travel, I get to ride around and listen to most of Rush’s show nearly every day. You clearly do not listen to Rush. Therefore, the comments you have posted regarding Rush - - “He told you and the rest of his audience, right to your faces, they were a bunch of rubes and yokels.” - - reveal you to be a moron, and probably a liar.
You listen to Rush EVERYDAY while your ON YOUR JOB, and I’m the moron????? Ok, if you say so howy old boy.
As to where he called his audience rubes and yokels, I provided the link from his website in my prior post.
Sorry for the short reply, but as most people with involved, meaningful vocations, I don’t get to listen to the radio while I work.
Yeah. You’re a moron.
Have a nice life.
>>...People! Please don’t think this is going to be easy...<<
Considering Obama’s record so far, if it is NOT going to be easy, then this country’s electorate is irretrievably lost and we might as well start thinking about how to pick up the pieces after the imminent, complete & total collapse of the Republic.
I agree that the MSM, Dems and the GOP-e are all going to throw a royal fit if the status-quo power structure is threatened; however, Obama has been such an utter, easily-demonstrable failure, I can not see how he stands a chance against most any determined challenger.
Sarah would thump Newt
Thanks for responding :)
I thought it was Romney who said the era of Reagan was over. Don’t recall Newt saying that.
yip, Newt was tap dancing around it. Newt’s problem is that he was vaccinated with a phonograph needle. He’s far from perfect, but I still like him best of who is left to vote for.
