Does no one care that Ryan’s budget accepts obummers base line and 900 billion in stimulus spending slush funding every year forever. This crap with newt, is classic gagging at a gnat while swallowing a camel.

I have been a partisan of Newt in the past but not recently. He started to lose me with the news of the cheating on his wife(s) and that idiot climate change ad where he sat with Nancy Pelosi. But still I told myself that he seemed to be one of the smarter people running until this weekend. This was a fork in the road and Newt took that fork square in the belly and now he is toast. I’d say he quits the race in the next couple of weeks.

I heard Rush describing his dinner with Newt. Wow. Newt was absolutely certain he was going to win the nomination. He was telling Rush his post nomination plans, how he would pick his VP candidate. He was completely confidant of the outcome and planned accordingly.

Talk about a precipitous fall.

Gingrich has been in Washington long enough to better than to assert "moral equivalency" between free market ideas and the coercive collectivist mandates of Obama and the Democrats.

He should be called on it, as Bennett did. That's not to say, however, that Ryan's plan, or any other Republican which came to incorporate coercive government mandates shouldn't be debated and criticized.

Newt Gingrich:"I don’t think I realized until after Sunday’s Meet the Press how big a threat my candidacy is to the Washington establishment."


Newt. Denial is not a river in Eqypt.

No you jackass! You are and long have been a part of the Washington establishment. Withdraw, get out of the way and find a dark hole to stay in until we can elect a real conservative. Take mitt the twit with you.

What a yawner - the two calorically challenged, tubby pubbies, TweedleNewt and TweedleBill, having an empty hissy fit. As in,

Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Agreed to have a battle;

For Tweedledum said Tweedledee

Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

Just then flew down a monstrous crow,

As black as a tar-barrel;

Which frightened both the heroes so,

They quite forgot their quarrel

And these two wets persist in calling themselves conservatives. Gag me with a spoon.

At the rate he’s digging, expect Newt to be shaking hands with a Chinese farmer at any moment.

“I don’t think I realized until after Sunday’s Meet the Press how big a threat my candidacy is to the Washington establishment”.

hubert humphrey of the republican set... the pudgeball beltway bum is either lying, is so dumb as to believe his own crap or is delusional... my bet is that newt the beltway butt*ole is all three.

After listening to Mark Levin gut the man live last night... and listening to newts's idiocy of spin... I am convinced that newt is all three. I wouldn't allow him in my home much less the White House.

I know that it is wrong to hate but what I feel for obama and newt are so close that one cannot distinguish much difference.

“I don’t think I realized until after Sunday’s Meet the Press how big a threat my candidacy is to the Washington establishment”.

If anything Gingrich has actually become more “Establishment” than anyone he’s criticizing for criticizing him. All he keeps barfing out about the Ryan PLan is that it shouldn’t be “imposed” on “people” without their consent. Huh?? This makes him sound like nothing BUT and Establishment type. Where does he get off calling Ryan’s plan an “imposition”? The House has a Majority now precisely because of people like Ryan. Yet Gingrich talks about “caution” in reforming Medicare. Levin hit him yesterday with the fact that Medicare’s Actuary is saying the looming financial collapse of the system is going to happen much sooner than anyone thought, after Gingrich got through telling Levin he told a constituent his Medicare is “safe”. It isn’t “safe”. Unless you plan to be one of those Bush-Rove type Progressive Republicans who think you can just keep on spending. Gingrich is basically done now - he’s become Romney, in the sense they both have to defend their stupidity of speech, and are falling because of it.

It was apparent to me from the first minute Bennett signed on the air yesterday that Newt had offended him and that NOTHING Newt could say or do would undo the offense. Bennett's entire promo of the Newt call sounded to me like he was being a Prince of a Fellow to give Newt a chance to ‘try’ to defend his position, but it would do no good.

Bennett reminded me all morning of a father with a daughter that's dating someone he doesn't care for and regardless of what his daughter says about her date or how the kid comes across it pretty clear dad's not going to be happy.

And for Bill Bennett of ALL people to be talking someone down for having an ego!! He can't get through a single interview without reminding everyone several times that he was Drug Czar, Sec. of Education, in the White House and on and on.

I know I'm inviting a towering inferno to engulf me, but I must say I heard what Newt said and until everyone started giving him grief my response was that he had answered the question that he was asked and had done a great job of doing it. He was asked if the Republicans should ignore the opposition to a measure and pass it anyway. He responded it was wrong for the Left or the Right to disregard so much opposition and make changes that people didn't understand.

And I'm with him on the problem of people choosing to use their money for something other than insurance or medical care,then present themselves for state-of-the-art medical care when they need it and feel free to simply dump the considerable cost on those of use who end up paying the bills, either as insured citizens or tax payers. If expecting people to pay for the care they receive is what the public mandate is then I guess I'm for it.

Think what you want of Newt, and say what want about him, but he is quite correct when he says something as big and monumental as changing Medicare needs to be done with the approval of those who will be affected, AND somehow we've got to find a way to made certain those who get medical care pay for it and don't dump the cost on the rest of us.

It honestly sounded to me like Bill Bennett is backing Rick Santorum or Paul Ryan and his beef with Newt was that he felt Newt wasn't giving them the respect Bennett gives them.

Sorry if I disagree with most everyone on this, but that's just the way it strikes me. And, IMHO, far better to get this chaffing done early in process rather than in the shadow of an impending election.

If all Newt does is bring forth liberal and silly ideas one after the other he's served an important role in our primary process. If nothing else, consider him the dose of attenuated live virus you give a child to give them protection from the real thing later in life.

I believe Ryan worked for Bennett early in Ryan’s career. Bennett took this personally. So do I. I was never for Newt, but I am now as passionately against him as I am against Romney.
