IF NOT ROMNEY, WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN?November 16, 2011So now, apparently, we have to go through the cycle of the media pushing Newt Gingrich. This is going to be fantastic.
In addition to having an affair in the middle of Clinton's impeachment; apologizing to Jesse Jackson on behalf of J.C. Watts -- one of two black Republicans then in Congress - for having criticized "poverty pimps," and then inviting Jackson to a State of the Union address; cutting a global warming commercial with Nancy Pelosi; supporting George Soros' candidate Dede Scozzafava in a congressional special election; appearing in public with the Rev. Al Sharpton to promote nonspecific education reform; and calling Paul Ryan's plan to save Social Security "right-wing social engineering," we found out this week that Gingrich was a recipient of Freddie Mac political money.
(Even I will admit, however, that Newt was great when he was chairman of GOPAC back in the '90s with Gay Gaines at the helm.)
Although Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- the institutions most responsible for the nation's current financial crisis -- were almost entirely Democratic cash cows, they managed to dirty up enough Republicans to make it seem like bipartisan corruption.
Democrats sucked hundreds of millions of dollars out of these institutions: Franklin Raines, $90 million; Jamie Gorelick, $26.4 million; Jim Johnson, $20 million.
By contrast, Republicans came cheap. For the amazingly good price of only $300,000 apiece, Fannie and Freddie bought the good will of former Reps. Vin Weber, R-Minn., Susan Molinari, R-N.Y., and Newt Gingrich, R-Ga.* Former Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, R-N.Y., was even cheaper at $240,000.
[*Correction: After Gingrich admitted last week to receiving $300,000 from Freddie, we found out this week that it was actually closer to $1.6 million.]
So now conservatives shy away from denouncing these crooked organizations for fear of running into Vin Weber at a cocktail party.
Sorry, guys -- on the plus side, you're millionaires, but on the downside, you've earned the contempt of your fellow man.
The mainstream media keep pushing alternatives to Mitt Romney not only because they are terrified of running against him, but also because they want to keep Republicans fighting, allowing Democrats to get a four-month jump on us.
Meanwhile, everyone knows the nominee is going to be Romney.
That's not so bad if you think the most important issues in this election are defeating Obama and repealing Obamacare.
Hmm....I'll have to look that up. I'll hit ya back if I LOL.
And 4 years ago JimRob said if you support Rudy Giuliani you're not welcome at Free Republic.
Texas governor Rick Perry was the only Republican governor to support Giuliani. Would Perry have not been welcome at Free Republic? :-)
‘Officially’, sure. But being well-informed FReepers, we know the truth. :-)
No. Read the article. THAT says something about the state of Ann Coulter's mind and personal integrity.
I don’t know if it will lead to the creation of a new party but it could very well kill this one.
well, it’s obvious your screen name is pure sarcasm, too, then...
So be it.
I no longer agree with her on more issues than I do agree. So Sad, she was a powerful voice for awhile.
I’ll take an Amish man, chosen by lot, before I cast my vote for RINOmney.
I wouldn't go so far as to say that "many" will fall for it, but indeed, some will. The rest of us will be busy figuring out how to defeat Obama and the GOP, come November.
where are the rules now?
Well, I’ll tell ya...
Since Ann decided to join hands with the GOProud homosexual rights group, the fules just got fulfilled
turn against conservatism, and conservatives will turn against you
Clear anything up for ya??
Perhaps Ann Coulter is trying to sell another book--this time dressed in a cheerleader uniform...
Bet on it. One need only look at 2008 to know that is true. What short memories thy have.
Romney belongs in the Democrat primary
Sometimes I think that is the real nail in the coffin for me, in regards to Romney. It’s bad enough, his liberalism, his flip-flops, his lack of core values. But, ultimately, the real clincher that will forever prevent me from EVER giving Romney my vote under any circumstances, was due to his sleazy operatives who joined the McCain campaign and proceded to backstab Palin, speading smears and lies to their buddies in the media, before the election was even over. True cretins.
Great tagline! Yours is good also. :-)
Truly Laughing Out Loud!!
The applicability of that visual as metaphor is outstanding!
Did he now? Didn't know that. Figgers...
