Posted on 06/23/2011 10:27:39 AM PDT by Al B.
Republicans, including Sarah Palin and Rudy Giuliani, made a "strategic blunder" by making a joke of Barack Obama's work as a community organizer, Newt Gingrich says in a new book about the radical ACORN group.
It was "not helpful" for Palin and Giuliani to mock community organizing in their speeches at the 2008 Republican National Convention, Gingrich tells investigative reporter Matthew Vadum in his new book, Subversion Inc. The GOP's mockery "trivialized Obama and Obama is not a trivial person," Gingrich said in an exclusive interview with Vadum featured in the book:

If anyone should know about “Strategic Blunders”, it’s Newt.
Gingrich is now a trivial person, so I guess he’d know something about being trivial.
Nice analysis, Newtie.
I think you’ve made a few strategic blunders along the line, too...
Soooooo Newt, how’s that campaign thing working out for you?
The only thing that was not helpful was having McCain as the nominee.
Newt’s wrong! Again. Reminding us of his “C.O.credentials” only helps to endear conservatives to her. Libs don’t care either way and wouldn’t vote for her either way.
NO NEWT IS GOOD NEWT!!
Gingrich calling ANYONE out—blunder. Just quit the damned race already, loser.
Yeah, there goes the “community organizer” vote!
I didn’t read that clearly, Newt’s foot was too far down his throat at the time.
If I understand this, the historical facts of the last campaign, which no one has shown the least interest in repeating, are somehow relevant at this time according to Newt.
This must be his history lesson for the day.
Thanks, Newt. Now go away.
Hey Gingrich - Whatever.
Newt’s just po’d because everytime he opens his trap someone throws glitter on him. People actually SHOW up to a Palin event.
Even today McCain keeps stepping in to protect Obama.
Coming from a dolt who sat with Pelosi on a couch and preached global warming, Newt, Obama the commie is in fact a trivial American, just the bar has been lowered to the floor for this Affirmative Action pile of dung who has NEVER produced anything!.
Does that man have no decency?
Hey, America should have known a community organizer couldn’t help the economy much less a free nation.
Sheesh. This from a walking strategic blunder. Newt, don’t go away mad—just go away. Quickly.
Gingrich: Strategic Blunder for Gingrich to take himself seriously as a Presidential Candidate
So, it’s never a good idea to speak the truth about a terrible man. That’s not good logic. That’s a recipe for tyranny.
Someone write “RINO!” across the idiot’s forehead please...kkthx. =.=
Just because Obama is surrounded by Machiavellian ideologues with a divide and conquer race baiting class warfare driven agenda doesn't mean that he isn't an overblown community organizer.
If you love this country Newt, stop letting your narcissism drive what you do, and actually fight for the nation. Pick an issue, like perhaps Term Limits, and use the clout you have left to become the champion of that issue. You could do more good in that context than letting your ego push you to run for the presidency.
Dede Scozafafa was a strategic blunder. Sitting on a sofa with Pelosi was a strategic blunder. Going on cruises while your campaign team quits is a strategic blunder.
Wondering along with the rest of normal America just what the heck a ‘Community Organizer’ does? Not so much.
1) He is trying to get noticed (a la Trump)
2) He is paving his future way on the liberal lecture circuit
I do not agree it was a blunder to call the community organizer in chief a community organizer. I think more ridicule should have been used on the patently unqualified Obama. I guess sitting on a couch with Pelosi and filming a commercial supporting AGW was not a strategic blunder, right Newt?
Go the hell away!
Newt’s only relevance is his “helpfulness” to the MSM.
Oh, and congrats on runnin' Obama's unemployment rate up a full point all by yourself.
Newt Gingrich needs to save his critism for Democrats... maybe even his old GW couch mate - Nancy Pelosi...
We'll probably find out on Hannity in a few hours.
Somebody needs to have the guts to expose ALL about the Muslim usurper.
Years of membership in Wright’s America/Jew/white hating ‘church’, former membership in a socialist party, raising and mentoring by radicals, Muslims and Communists,
campaigning on the American taxpayer’s dollar for the murderous muzzie/Communist Odings, violation of the Logan Act..ad naseum
These older politicians have been chewing too many meds over the years. Their brains are scrambled.
“The GOP’s mockery “trivialized Obama and Obama is not a trivial person,” Gingrich said”
Holy crap, I’ve never seen a more trivial person.
Pee-Wee Herman has more gravitas.
No wonder his campaign staff bailed.
And we care what this nutjob says WHY?
Your Tiffany diamonds, your inside the beltway Washington Office, your support of Global Warming, and your support of Dede(NY-23) was and still are blunders like no others.
Newt is a sore loser.
Newt has misread things. The issue wasn’t only that Obama was a community organizer, but that he was ONLY a community organizer.
In 2012, he will be able to pad his resume with “Nation Destroyer” to that community organizer item. Wait, did I mean President of the United States instead? Nope, he hasn’t qualified himself with that one so far.
Gingrich is a fine one to talk about “strategic blunders”.
Shall we start with his turning his elderly mother over to Connie Chung for an interview?
Then there was throwing a public hissy fit because he had to depart from the back of the lane when on a jaunt with Clinton.
What about playing around with a government staffer at the same time as Clinton was being impeached?
How about traipsing off to Greece in the middle of his latest campaign?
How about “dissing” the staffers who left in protest as being lightweights and not too experienced?
And there is so much more.
I wish that he’d just go away and shut up.
Excuse me, Mr. Gingrich, aren’t you due for another long cruise with your latest wife/chief political strategist right about now? If not, please do everyone a favor and book one, as soon as possible.
Newt is the “Strategic Blunder Czar”.
