CFA Executive Director: "While I admire Newt's intelligence and respect him as a fellow Catholic, his crass, political calculation in endorsing such a pro-abortion candidate sends an unfortunate signal that party loyalty is more important than morality. Newt needs to examine his conscience for so publicly flouting the Church's doctrine on abortion and gay marriage."

I wonder what Newt’s reply will be.
what will it matter though? we already know he’s a dem in RINO clothing...he’ll only be lying if he recants...
Nuts to Newt!!!
He is a has-been of no relevance trying to shill for the center to advance his “career”.
Newt’s a n0-brainer on NY23.
Geeze....I’ve been saying this for a week now. Hey Newt, faith trumps party. EVERY. TIME.
Expect Newt to double-down. He’ll do a photo op with Ms. Scozzafava talking about how great of a job she’ll do fighting man-made global warming.
He has an easy out, if he would take it. He can simply say he wanted another Republican to stop Pelosi, and at the time Scozzi was it. Now that she has botched her candidacy, he supports the only remaining viable Republican.
It would be no less shallow or craven than much of his other political machinations over the last few years.
TOO LATE....Newt outted himself as the RINO he is. No going back.
“While I admire Newt’s intelligence”
Well there’s the problem. You need to cut that out. The intelligent Newt is historical. (I feel a new tagline coming on!)
I beg to differ.
Calculating and devious...yes
Not easy for him, his ego is the size of the Goodyear Blimp
He will never admit he was wrong.
“Group Calls on Gingrich to Rescind Endorsement of Scozzafava”
He’s a Repub-likkin’, she’s a Repub-likkin’. He’d endorse her if she herself performed a partial birth abortion on a 13 year old on live television.
Mr. Gor-bull warming? Na, sorry Newt, you lost me when you came out in favor ot it. you and John McCain can walk off into the sunset hand in hand and we will sing a couple of bars of “Happy Trails To You”
Lets all turn on Newt (again) because he says something (1 thing) that you don't agree with.
Weeks ago, Newt was still a messiah to many.
We now return you to the regularly scheduled feel good perfect conservative hypocrisy.
Then, he PRAISED FDR, for his DOMESTIC policy, during the Clinton administration, while we were fighting to stop Clinton's socialism-light.
faith trumps party every time
don’t tell that tot he Catholics up in the north east.
One woud think that the north east would be the most republican area but instead they’re Catholics on a Sunday and then a Dem for the rest of the week.

Someone with PhotoShop skills should place this name on a can of Raid....a new Rinocide!
He just recently converted to Catholisism (sp).....maybe he didn’t know.....:)....(yeah, right).
The majority of Catholics voted Obama. And dont forget Biden, Pelosi, Kerry...all Catholics all pro abortion and pro gay marriage.
Don't you mean conservative?
Screw the Republicans.
I know how ya feel....I have a pic of me and Michael Steele.
Sorry Newt, it doesn't (and shouldn't) work that way. As a Catholic who is beholden to Scripture should know, that we are to test EVERYTHING through the lens of God's Word. Yes, and that means even the motives of the GOP...
Too late. Gingrich endorsed, did not withdraw his endorsement, and so he has picked sides. Newt always seemed a little bit too careful in his politics and views, but maybe he’s dated himself this time. So long Newt, been good to know you. Sarah, appoint him as ambassador to China or something when you get your next job.
I strongly disagree with anyone and everyone who has a blanket criticism of Mr.Newt. ... those who call him “RINO” or “Dem” or anything other than conservative.
Mr.Newt has been more of an asset to the Conservative movement than almost anyone else in the country now alive. In this case, I completely disagree with his support of the old power structure, as I have on one or two other issues.
Those of you who have only been peripherally involved in political battles, instead of having been immersed in them as he has been, have not seen as many disappointments as he has and NOT ONE of you engineered the conservative takeover of the House in 1994 as he did. He sees with some justification that in 1993 moderate GOPers won and started the snowball moving for that takeover. It is my belief that he was lied to about the way NY-23 candidate was chosen, and that he doesn’t understand the demographics and dynamics of NY-23. This clearly was NOT a “local choice” as he has repeatedly stated, and he seems to believe. I hope he goes to www.tcotreport.com and educates himself today about this situation. And by the way, I do NOT believe that “oh- she supports abortion- I withdraw my endorsement” is a valid response.
I honor his service, his opinion, and the important insight and actions he has brought to Conservatism and continues.
You who do not are more destructive to Conservatism than Mr.Newt will ever be.
Newt needs to do a year or two of penance for his matrimonial sins, his political sins, and his incredible pride. I think he's minimizing his own faults (I NEVER do that, of course.) and he won't be credible and his soul will be in peril if he doesn't get his shizzle together a little.
It would be about typical for that nutless wonder to do so, then turn around and pat himself on the back for being right.
“He just recently converted to Catholisism”
I thought it was said that converts make the best Catholics.
I believe Newt went ‘Hollywood’ a long time ago.
His ‘let’s get along no matter what’ philosophy has marginalized his standing in the conservative movement.
I ask, what good is intelligence without wisdom?
Newt is the guy who did commercials about global warming WITH a democrat. He got thrown out of his office when he cheated on his wife. He supports a pro abortion candidate when he claims to be a catholic. Now those are some serious contridictions. Ya, he is bright and writes good books but he is a RINO.
Newt is just a has been in frilly old womans underwear...he should have known better
Is Newt Catholic?
uh, sorry, never liked newt too much...and he was never my messiah...and how do you know it’s just ONE thing that i disagree with him on?? if you’re going to insult me by calling me a hypocrite, atleast find out what my views are instead of running your mouth on things you know nothing about. thanks.
LOL......you know I was being sarcastic..(I hope)...
However, since then Gingrich has tried to be the center of attention and make everything about him. He self destructed as Speaker and had to resign. He let his ego get in the way and was consistently outmaneuvered by Clinton, the Democrats and the MSM.
Lately, however, he has been particularly dishonorable and self promoting. His appearances with Pelosi in support of cap and trade were unprincipled and contemptible. His recent appearances with Sharpton, a dishonest race hustler and advocate of racial violence have been despicable. His recent support of Scozzafava and attacks on Hoffman are yet more examples of this.
Gingrich is not a principled conservative any more than he is sincere in his new Catholic faith when he promotes someone who works to increase the killing of innocent unborn children and push a pro homosexual agenda.
you are more than welcome to disagree, FRiend, as we are still in America where you have that right.
however, it seems like you people who like newt assume that we who do not only have ONE reason not to...maybe if you were to ask us questions about WHY we don’t, you might find out where we stand... instead you accuse us of being “destructive” to the conservative movement...once again, before you insult us, try and find out the facts...thanks.
Awesome analysis Manc!!! Spot-on!!!
Newt, the Republican Al Gore.
