Skip to comments.Newt on Greta talking about Scozzafava
Posted on 10/26/2009 7:18:44 PM PDT by RushingWater
Newt answering questions about NY23. Defending the Scozzafava. Says that Hoffman is outside the district. Claims that Scozzafava is a solid fiscal conservative but social liberal. Claims all of Hoffman's money is coming outside the district. Make a point that it was the local GOP that nominated Scozzafava and that they know more than outsiders what is right for the district.
“Make a point that it was the local GOP that nominated Scozzafava and that they know more than outsiders what is right for the district.”
Well Newt -in case you hadn’t noticed- Georgia is pretty far outside of that district.
Newt was very convincing but I’m not buying it. I am sick of RINOs and this is one in the making.
I heard tonite that local Rep council only had 4 Rep council members voting on Scaffazo’s nomination!
Bullcrap. Newt saw the “R” and followed.
Just own up, NG. Say you were wrong, because you are. Go to the true conservative.
Poor Newt fell off the wagon again.
Newt has screwed up badly here and he doesn’t know how to extricate himself.
Does Nancy approve of Scuzzy too?
Too worried about party and not values.
I was laughing my ass off when he said that. I guess Newt is from New York now? Although Newt seems to spend a lot of time in NY and DC lately...
Newt did say she is a ‘liberal Republican’ on social issues. Not quite - she is a liberal Democrat on social issues.
Shut up Newt, your a has been, get lost!!!!
Pretty certain I heard most of DeDe’s money is coming out of district too. From the GOP. From Planned Parenthood...from all those lovely national liberal groups she is so proud of.
Newt ought to be ashamed of himself. He knows this is what usually happens in most races. He hasn’t had a problem with it.
Keep digging, Newt. BTW, how is the sales of your book?
Newt seems to come off much better when he’s paired with the likes of Rev’ren’ Al or Nancy Pelosi.
Psst! You’re not a kingmaker, Newt. Find a hobby.
So, is all of that NRCC money from ‘the district’? Why is Newt involved if we should only pay attention to in the district support. Stop attacking the conservative.
Give it up, Newt.
Newt went on a tour with Al Sharpton. Hannity makes keeps him relevant.
I saw him, and he tried so hard to justify him choosing that leftist hack. Even saying how people from Alaska, Texas, etc shouldn’t get involved in an outside race. Screw you Newt..Everyday I get more and more disgusted with him
Newt’s twitter account has been used exclusively to push his book. It’s become a joke.
NOW 'carpetbagging' is an issue for Newt??? LOL! How far over the district line does Hoffman live? Five miles? Greta and Hannity should send this bozo packing...maybe he can cop a guest spot or two on the Mark Davis show next time he's in Dallas. FUNG.
People from outside the district will stay out of the race if she promises to never vote for a tax increase that affects anybody outside her district.
I think the Newt’s wishing he had pulled a Pawlenty - feigning ignorance until it’s clear which way the wind was blowing.
Yeah, like people from Georgia have more insight than people in Minnesota or Alaska? He’s dead wrong on this one. He does like to hear himself talk, that’s for sure.
newt’s a globalist.
Pawlenty did look like a tool in this situation. He was clueless until he realized that Sarah had made the right move by endorsing the conservative. Suddenly, Pawlenty gets interested in the House race. Dolt.
Hey Newt, I sent Hoffman $25 - from Virginia.
Just thought you’d like to know.
I never understood why so many people are sold on Newt. He has always been a go-along to get-along politician. Much like Dennis Hastert, he has done NOTHING for the cause and the party. The Republican Party needs a cleansing and a purpose. We need folks with a passion... and not just the passion of a political career.
“Claims all of Hoffman’s money is coming outside the district.”
That is correct Newt. The rank and file Conservatives are fed up with RINO’s. We the small people out side the Washington elite are sending money to Hoffman’s campaign.
He hails from GA—not too popular there and known as a “necessary evil”—and that’s a quote. Lived in GA from 1982—2006. Many just see him as a talkative opportunist—but at a time,he was leading the Rep. party. He created a lot of attention for issues and was regarded as a necessary evil. His womanizing was well known in Marietta GA, and his mistreatment of the first wife cited often. He has baggage. Like Clinton, he can be a smooth talker and charming—personally I think he is no longer in touch with the base, but writes books for money. He gets on TV as he is more a RINO now. He will not be a candidate in 2012 as we don’t want him!!!
Never heard about when in a hole quit digging. He went and got a backhoe. Loved the litmus test line, lovely.
Pray for America’s Freedom
Apparently according to Newt’s logic, Georgia is closer to New York then Alaska, therefore he can get involved but Sarah should keep her mouth shut. You know what, I am kinda glad this happened, shows Newt for what he really is. If this race had never happened, some might have not seen Newt as the big lib he really is
I sent Hoffman 25 bucks too and I’m stuck in liberal los angeles county..Suck on that Newt
Wow, Newt is on Greta! How riveting! I’ll pass.
Hmmm...thought southern ladies had higher standards.
Too bad he doesn't realize that the days of supporting liberals running on the GOP ticket are over.
THERE IS ALWAYS A CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE.
No point in electing liberals that will side with the socialists when they get to DC.
Thats just plain dumb.
Nostalgia for the good ‘ol days of which people associated with Newt. It’s the same with Reagan, only Reagan actually deserves that nostalgic glow when he’s spoken of. Nostalgia’s powerful though. Has a way of making people forget or whitewash what really went down. Only at times like these do people suddenly remember the side of Newt that led to him being run out of office.
That and I suppose he has a touch of Clinton or Obama about him. Some people are fooled by glib speakers. Maybe we all are at some point.
I see it as a blessing. Been speaking against the guy for the last few years but people persisted in believing in him. That appears to be ending.
Newt is voting on political affiliation (R) and not integrity (right and wrong).
It was five people in a closed room, all part of Scuzzlebutt’s own little red hat lady circle that nominated her, not the district. Also, I don’t know why Newt keeps repeating the BS, but Hoffman does live in that district from what I’ve seen (I recall a thread when Newt first charged that some FReepers looked him up and he was right on some bayside community within the district).
Newt, she may have turned you into one, but you didn’t get better.
...so then why is he involved?
Exactly my point..He is a hypocrite. He is just pissed that Sarah and others have decided to pick principal over party. He is afraid his big lib candidate is gonna lose
yeah, i have been one of those but this episode was quite informative. I still want Newt on our team, but not leadership. He gave a good history lesson. He was talking about GW crossing the Delaware. Does he really think his support for Dede shows any courage?
