The old Republican establishment appears to have lost its mind. I guess I’ll just start referring to myself as a conservative and drop all the Republican BS. My party left me. I’m not going to act like a DemocRAT and call myself a Republican. That’s just dumb.

I can only assume that Newt wants to “do business” with folks in the new administration.

I know this for a fact...Newt Gingrich is actually dead. I saw his obit. He died just about the same time that the Republicans lost control of the House. So these must be made-up’ stories. Really...his body is already cold and corrupted.

This is exactly what Rush was talking about. WASHINGTONIANS. Republicans want to be adored by the MSM and maintain standing in the D.C. cocktail circuit. They want press adulation.

I’ll be happy when conservaives give up any idea Newt is “one of us”. Whatever he was in past, he left behind him. It’s nostalgia at best. He deserves to be treated with the same contempt given to John McCain.

It might be helpful for conservatives to print this thread out and look at it the next time Newt’s name comes up for a leadership position in ANYTHING. He is less trustworthy than John McCain, and after seeing the latter’s efforts during the election, that is no mean feat.

The old Republican establishment appears to have lost its mind. I guess I’ll just start referring to myself as a conservative....

Best chuckle I had today. You're right: Most political labels are pretty useless these days. Better just to say what you are for and what you are against. I'm thinking of getting my list laminated and passing it around at family gatherings and social events. It's the "speed dating" version of political small talk.

Maybe Newt has his own similar pay for play connections he doesn’t want exposed ... still remembering the sting of being so vocal against the Clintons to have his own affair revealed...

Newt is on the same page as Barry with regard to global warming. Does that answer your question?

I got tired of hearing from Newt a few years ago. He should retire quietly, and let new talent take charge of the GOP.

Rush nailed these scumbag "Washingtonians". Just *nailed* them. They are traitors with more subtlety that the Coup. They are Vichy. They say they are on our side, wait for a weakness, then betray us.

It would help if he kept up with the news. The feds are taking a look at Obama's activity in this investigation.

He would like everyone to believe he's a conservative, but he's not. He's a RINO just like the rest of the CFR traitors in the GOP are. We can thank them for most of the American jobs that went overseas, and south of the border. I'm really glad he's out of politics. Let's hope he stays out!!

I don't have an incoming President. I am in occupied territory about to be overrun by a coup's treasonous horde, and Newt is a Vichy, *ss kissing traitor. F him and all "Republicans" that align with his methods and motivations.

The O passes their test because he's also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Me? I'm a disgrunted, disillusioned conservative. We are basically a one-party system now, with only fringe differences. Frankly, I'm not any more scared of Obama than I am of the republicans. They're all hell bent on destroying this country.

Republicans should be working to expose the differences between their ideas of free markets and limited government from the incoming President so as to sooner succeed in rescuing the nation.

Sure. Possibly as many as 10% of the electorate is to the right of Newt Gingrich.

I’ve never been a big fan of Newt. When he made a speech on islam I had some hope. He should have said wait until all the facts are in.

That’s assuming he wants to hear how deep in the Chicago machine Barry was after 10 years.
