Dan Rather: Newt dangerous as a wounded Wolverine
Washington Examiner ^ | November 14, 2011 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 11/14/2011 11:44:28 AM PST by Bubba_Leroy

Don't underestimate Newt Gingrich, warns Dan Rather during an MSNBC roundtable discussion today.

"Anyone who has covered Newt Gingrich over the years knows better than to underestimate him," said Rather, referencing his political comeback. "Newt Gingrich on the move politically is as dangerous as a wounded wolverine."

Rather added that Jon Huntsman was the best candidate for the GOP in the 2012 general election, but would have a hard time winning the Republican primary.

Newt's sharp most of the time. Not all of the time, but most of the time.

This is one of those not times.

Newt! If you have lost Dan Blather, you have lost the election.

Hey Dan!

When did folks begin seeking you out for your “wisdom”?

Ah, yes.

That reminds me that Dan Rather on the move politically is as dangerous as a lying sack of $#!+.

Rather added that Jon Huntsman was the best candidate for the GOP in the 2012 general election, but would have a hard time winning the Republican primary.

Of course, Rather believes it would be best if the GOP did not field a candidate at all and simply confirmed Obama as The Anointed One.

Since the GOP is not willing to do that, then the next best option would be for the GOP to nominate Huntsman, the most Democrat RINO of the bunch.

What a lyin’, cheatin’ has-been. Of COURSE he would say Huntsman is the best GOP candidate because he knows Huntsman would lose to Nobama.

If Dan Blather thinks Huntsman is the best choice in 2012, I KNOW he’s the wrong man for the job. My guess is Romney is Blather’s second choice.

Jon Huntsman on the other hand probably could win the Democratic primary.

Newt isn't perfect. Sometimes he does stupid things like the above pic. But where I like him is that his instincts are generally conservative in an ideologically pure way. Like with the TARP bail-outs. But he sometimes throws his instincts out the window.

Bush every once in a while did things that were conservative, but like the rest of his northeastern elitist friends, his instincts were liberal. I think sometimes Newt is the opposite.

I like him because he's a figher and always has been, and this is not true of most of the GOP establishment. That said, Cain is my horse in this race if and until he loses.

I think folks like Rather are getting uncomfortable with Newt during these debates, attacking the premise of their questions and all.

Newt’s going all Prov 26:4-5 on them.

I have not offered my cherished endorsement to any candidate yet, but, it is tempting to back Newt if his supporters can be called “the wounded wolverines.”

Newt is full of quotes. Nearly every speech is liberally sprinkled with literary citations. Curious how quotes from the Bible are never among them. I doubt Newt would have the slighest idea what Prov 26:4-5 says or is even about. But I guarantee you Herman Cain does.

The winds of nebulous promise, the billowed clouds cumulus, of mist and air and little else, those too the models of which from Peggy Noonan inspire, and inspire greatly.

Edit: should have put ‘horned’ in front of ‘toad’.

Ah well.

More "Ratherisms".

In the drinking game, you have to take a drink whenever Dan lets one of these drop.

But it would be better if the other participants went into Rather mode and quoted or coined their own "Ratherisms."

Without explanation, Prov 26:4-5 is, on its surface, a contradiction. But it explains exactly how to address liberals who try to argue on baseless surface issues that are simply a cover for their real agenda.

That's because Huntsman is Obama's sock puppet.
