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.
The AP has been leading their updates with the Gingrich Fan & Fred story all day. More media cheerleading for Romney alternatives, of course. Because they’re so petrified.
As JimRob said, if you support Romney, you’re not welcome on Free Republic.
That includes Ann Coulter. We don’t want or need Romneybots on here, if we can help it!
I’ll be sure to read your updates when I get out of the hospital. I think I just collapsed a lung!
She's wrong about Christy, she's wrong about Romney.... When has she ever supported a conservative?
Mittens may be the inevitable nominee. No one I know on here wants to get behind him if he is. Coulter should know better - he’s not exactly Mr. Popular with rank and file conservatives.
RINOs are retromingent, you know. You don't want to get behind one.
The problem, GS, is that he’s flopped back and forth a few times on both abortion and gay unions.
Ann Coulter a RINO? That says something about the state of affairs at this site.
In fact, somebody will run Third Party if Mitt is nominee, and I predict they will get 10-15% of the vote....the question is who.....Sarah....Donald?
I'm afraid the GOP establishment is complicit in the takeover of America.
One word: GOProud.
You can take that to the bank. Three quarters of voters on the right do not want this snake oil salesman to be their president, and will be highly motivated to nominate their own candidate, should the GOP foist this liberal on us.
Just what was the point of the Tea Party rebellion, if we're just going to turn around and nominate an unrepentant big government liberal for president? In my view, the people are still in a state of rebellion, and will not support this establishment tool. They'll go completely 'rogue', if it comes to that.
I think they're both infected with a severe case of ABBO (anybody but Barack Obama) and they have swallowed hook, line and sinker the liberal media's claim that only Romney can defeat Obama.
As Rush might say.... Ann Colter-Kathleen Parker will be synchronizing their periods any day now.
didn’t she date Bill Mahr??
What does that tell us?
What it says is Coulter has changed and become a moderate.
I still have same philosophy and core convictions about life as I did when I was 30.
Go away Coulter, a long, long, long way away. She must be shacking up with her best friend Bill Maher.
