Skip to comments.‘Out of the … Dust of Tweets and Trivia Emerged Gingrich’(Newt losing it?)

Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler slams the media coverage of Newt Gingrich in the aftermath of his remarks about Paul Ryans medicare plan and the individual mandate. His statement to the Huffington Post:
""The literati sent out their minions to do their bidding. Washington cannot tolerate threats from outsiders who might disrupt their comfortable world. The firefight started when the cowardly sensed weakness. They fired timidly at first, then the sheep not wanting to be dropped from the establishments cocktail party invite list unloaded their entire clip, firing without taking aim their distortions and falsehoods. Now they are left exposed by their bylines and handles. But surely they had killed him off. This is the way it always worked. A lesser person could not have survived the first few minutes of the onslaught. But out of the billowing smoke and dust of tweets and trivia emerged Gingrich, once again ready to lead those who wont be intimated by the political elite and are ready to take on the challenges America faces.""
Newt’s people are talking to the Huffington Post and we have to ask if he’s losing it? LOL.
Check your meds, Rick.
“”Talk show host Rush Limbaugh responded sarcastically this afternoon to a suggestion from Newt Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler that Gingrich’s critics — Limbaugh prominent among them — are simply members of an elite Beltway cocktail party circuit.
“Actually, I am part of the constitutional, free market, individual liberty circuit,” Limbaugh said in an email to POLITICO.
Tyler’s comments puzzled many because Gingrich’s criticism of Paul Ryan drew the sharpest criticism not from the “liberal media” but from the core of his own conservative movement.””
“”This hyperventilating is the sign of a truly desperate staffer for an imploding wannabe campaign. Rick Tyler, an otherwise decent fellow who works for the logorrheic Newtonian, absolutely lost his, uh, his stuff. Do read the crazy rantings in the link above. At the end comes the truly delusional part:
“Out of the billowing smoke and dust of tweets and trivia emerged Gingrich, once again ready to lead those who won’t be intimated by the political elite and are ready to take on the challenges America faces.”
Methinks if there is any billowing smoke, it is the funny stuff the Gingriches must be smoking if they think he has emerged looking like anything except a shabby, self-important hack with enough egg on his face to feed omelets to the whole nation of Lichtenstein.””
“Washington cannot tolerate threats from outsiders who might disrupt their comfortable world.”
hahahahah...so a guy who has been hanging around DC since 1979 is an outsider? Go home Newt! I’m certain that there’s a couch somewhere that you can sit on and spew global warming propaganda with San Fran Nan.
It was a well placed article. Only Huffpo could carry such pretentious drivel. Gingrich showed himself a RINO for all the world to see. Conservatives everywhere gagged. The lines are drawn, Newt. You are on the wrong side.
Out of all the candidates SO FAR the one the liberals fear the most is Gingrich.
I DO NOT WANT HIM to run but you have to admit the man is brilliant, and an excellent debater.
They do not even want him in the debates on OUR SIDE, that’s how good he is.
YES he has said some stupid things- but 99% of what he says makes way too much sense for liberals to let the sheeple hear it.
THAT IS WHY THEY ARE TRYING TO SHUT HIM UP NOW.
And too many of us (even Freepers) are falling for the liberal media slime tactics, or at least not seeing them for what they are.
There, all fixed.
What I want to know is WHY THE HELL DOES NEWT BOTHER TO TALK TO THE LIBERAL MEDIA~~!!!
ALL GOP SHOULD BOYCOTT THEM AND JUST GO ON FOX
Which leaves unanswered the question of why he needed three wives.
He must be a serial Mormon.
Had he spent even an hour a week reading Free Republic he would have understood the mood of the party and the reasons for his probationary status. But his vanity led him to believe that his powers permitted him to shape the debate and that the party would adhere to him rather than the other way around.
He saw himself as the bearer of the torch, the keeper of the Reagan legacy because of his accomplishments in the 1990s. He saw himself as the righteous antagonist to both Bushes when he opposed the father on increased taxes and the son on increased spending. He did not realize the party saw him opposing their own while failing to oppose, indeed actually supporting, the enemy on climate change, for example. Now we see him opposing Ryan and supporting Obama care.
Newt thought that there was a 3rd way, his way, to which he could draw the party by virtue of his undeniable talents. Unfortunately, conservatives see the country disintegrating under their feet and we were in no mood to tolerate any symptoms of self-seeking at the expense of saving the country. Newt would have known this had he just read these threads.
Whew, talk about billowing! Somebody’s had too many York Peppermint Patties.
It was brilliant to go after Ryan? If that's his example of how to run a brilliant campaign then no thanks.
That said... intellect is NOT enough for the office of the President AND has nothing to do with ‘fitness’ for the job. There are tons of people who are WAY more intelligent than most Presidents.
Newt is living, breathing proof that intellect (if it matters at all) is a small part of the equation.
No... I do not because he is not. Rush had the guy running in circles... he could not come up with enough lies live to cover his sorry arse and he sounded like clinton testifying. gregory handled him like a pro... and newt was too frickin' stupid to realize it. The man is a media creation... he is not Conservative... he is not smart and he is not an excellent debater... Rush took him out and Rush was being friendly. newt is an example of what is diseased in American politics today.
That is nothing more than the party line... sorry... not going to work this time. You and newt are stuck in the 80’s.
