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.
One of those "some" is the boss.
Unlike some of the posters here, I get it!
It's sad to find folks, even here, whose moral sense is so degraded that Barack Obama has become their plumb line.
Seems it doesn't matter how frequently the owner clearly states this website's policy on Romney. Some folks just insist on committing freepicide anyway.
Oh! Fancy that.
The problem is conservatives don’t demand any one better. My standard is its not good enough to have a candidate a hair better than Obama. We can and must demand high standards.
It’s going to get real ugly round here.
The MSM did the exact same thing with McCain. Watch who they attack on our side - there's your clue as to who they really fear. The guy that isn't being attacked now is their pick for the primaries. Mittens is loaded with campaign cash - hell, he even had me fooled last time around, but I wanted no part of McCain, and Huckabee just didn't settle well with me either. I wanted Thompson, but he never really got going and had no financing or ground game. Mittens only rival cashwise is Perry, who has his own problems. Basically we could have fielded a much better slate than what is out there given the outrage, the 2010 elections, and three years to come up with better candidates. Sarah is showing me why she made the right choice to stay out - probably didn't really want it. Prefers to be a king-maker, although I suspect her popularity will quickly fade into obscurity.
Gridlock? With Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader McConnell (if we take the Senate)?
Oh yeah, they’ll hold fast and stop Obama.
I’ll post more tomorrow when I stop laughing!
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.
That “newspaper clip” is hilarious and cool
Romney is a moderate Republican loser.
Some people can’t or won’t see it.
Glad I never bought any of her books...yuk...next she'll go Ariana Huffington and start writing for the KOS Kidz.
She made sense in 2008
Given some of the namby-pamby comments I've seen in support of Mittens, I think it needs to.
I can see it now, Mitt will give a rousing acceptance speech at the Convention, and many here will fall for it.
She’s the happy mascot of the radical homosexual GOProud.
Re your post 49, I really didn’t think that you were among the Coulter-clamoring crowds. Just being provocative to those Freepers who just line up to worship at the feet of the Messiah of the moment. Think Rep. Eric Cantor, Gov. Chris Cristie, etc., all of whom were the cat’s meow at one time to some Freepers but who were not what they were perceived to be, i.e., real conservatives.
Ohmigosh!!! Based on this, I must have passed through a dimensional rift, and entered Bizzaro World! There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home (click, click, click)...
She has shared a grille cheese sandwich with Jimmy "JJ" Walker, too. Does she receive a multicultural pass for that?
Romney tried his hardest to out liberal Ted Kennedy. That makes him a liberal -- a far left liberal.
But you are right, some people just don't see it. Why is the question as it couldn't be more obvious.
If Romney is forced on us as the GOP candidate, he will lose. They must see that.
I'm fine with people posting articles by her, so long as they also include a RINO Alert! in parenthesis in the title. It needs to be understood by one and all that Ann has gone to the dark side, and is no longer trusted or respected by this community.
What a bogus poll. Is there only two candidates in the race?
No, you tattled on yourself by brazenly posting your unreserved support of Mitt Romney. I just alerted the boss so you could be taken out of your misery more quickly.
No need to thank me. Just trying to be helpful.
Yeah but officially, there no Republican liberals. There are only conservatives and the Republican Main Street Alliance - the party moderates AKA the establishment.
