Newt: "I am, however, deeply dissapointed that she has chosen to back Owens over Hoffman."

I Am Endorsing Doug Hoffman

Updated 11/1 - The race has evolved into a contest between a conservative and a pro-Pelosi, tax increase, big government liberal Democrat.

This is both a tribute to the power of the national conservative movement to define an issue and a commentary on the populist anger against politics-as-usual.

The New York GOP has now had two troubled special elections and it is clear they should go to a primary nominating system so everyone will feel it was fair and open.

The age of party leaders picking people is over.

Scozzafava did the right thing in dropping out. I am, however, deeply dissapointed that she has chosen to back Owens over Hoffman.

I am endorsing Doug Hoffman and believe everyone who wants to create jobs with lower taxes and to control spending and deficits should vote for Doug Hoffman Tuesday.

I like to pretend that Newt learned a damned thing.

Doubt it.

Why can't these fools just admit they made a big mistake? What is it about politician's egos that make them think they can pull to wool over our eyes with meaningless press releases and platitudes?

Newt screwed the pooch. He needs to go get a rabies shot and go away.

I firmly believe that newt’s donking his assistant was in the FBI file that the Clinton Whitehouse had in their files. I firmly believe that newt was blackmailed into betraying the Republican Revolution of 1994.

newt can’t be trusted. It takes two points to define a line and newt betrayed two wives. newt is defined.

It’s interesting to read all these great posts.
Newt, taking all the heat.

Yet, the ones who are ACTUALLY RESPONSIBLE... The GOP leadership are getting off easy.

Newt deserves every bit of scorn he gets.

However, why are we letting the ones who made this decision off the hook so easily.

Until their are leadership changes, nothing else will.

Dear Newt, I deeply disappointed that your time on the couch with Pelosi has made you a Zer0-brainer wrt NY23

Singing a duet with Sharpton about global warming didn't help him either.

Screw you, Newt.

It's not a "populist" uprising. Union goons are "populists."

This is about conservative principles.

The fact that you don't get that means you are part of the problem.

Please start your own "moderate" third party, Newt, and step aside for the adults in the GOP.

No shit, Newt! Now go away. You have proven you can't be trusted. Sarah Palin has kicked your butt and you don't even realize it.

Sarah Palin is a leader and you, Newt, are a hack.

Aren’t you bothered by the old satyr running around with his THIRD wife (abandoned the first one on her hospital bed recovering from a mastectomy, the second one after years of cheating on her) blabbering on about, of all things, REDISCOVERING GOD IN AMERICA!!!!!

Good grief, how about discovering God in his own HOUSE before telling the rest of us how to find God?!

Defending Newt is like the libtards defending Clinton because all the other good things he had done.

He was, is, and will be just another windbag sticking his wet finger to fine tune his next oration. You were right once Newt, good, thanks for that one, but you’re still a lousy human being.

This last episode was the same fan dance, but he suffered a spectacular pratfall, and we got to see not the fine public figure of the GOP’s imagination, but a preening wasted sagging rump running around trying to salvage the illusion that he matters.

Go spend the night with Callista Newt, and rediscover God in your own home.

“Oh boy, I never thought I would see the day when Newt Gingrich was attacked for being too liberal....”

In my opinion Newt has always and will always be looking out for Newt. He talks Reagan talk because Reagan's conservative principals are popular. But when Newt thinks he will do better leaning moderate he will drop any and all conservative principals if it helps Newt. Why he even loved sitting on a couch all cozy with Nancy Polutesy talking about how we must stop global warming!

He finally has lost his cover and we all now know he is nothing but a go with the flow RINO!

This is priceless! Newt backed her, even though she was a FLAMING RINO; and now he's out with a statement for the sake of DAMAGE CONTROL.

Newt has been loosing cred with me for some time now, and I think it's apparent that he's sold his soul to the devil, for the sake of being on the Talk show rosters.

A great post in the comments section of Gingrich's website:

Can you hear us now??? We the People, have been telling the elected and party leaders how we feel for nearly 9 months.

2 million marched on DC and we have been to every town meeting telling you all how we feel and what we want you to do. It seems you all think we work for you, a very bad mistake on your part and others.

Posts on this thread are a great read and express my own opinion well. Thanks to all. Newt has exposed himself as a political opportunist of the worst sort. We need principled people to hold office, not party hacks who are in this for themselves.

Newt, if you did not see Scozzafava as the Progressive-Liberal-Pelosi in RINO clothing that she is you are either dangerously incompetent or criminally corrupt.

Whichever it is, you do not represent me or my values. We need a Conservative Party!

Maybe the left has something else on Newt that he keeps walzing with them?

Remember the 500+ FBI files found in Hillary's possession? Does it make sense that Newt's file would be one of those she would want to see/photocopy?
