Skip to comments.No Newt Is Good Newt (Who is the King of Flip-Flops? Not Mitt but Newt)
Posted on 11/30/2011 7:00:17 AM PST by SeekAndFind
He is the king of flip-flops, the emperor of hypocrisy, the czar of opinions a mile wide and an inch deep. Mitt Romney? Not by a long shot -- because when it comes to core values, conservative or otherwise, Romney tips the top of the belief-o-meter compared with Newt Gingrich. And it is a lesson conservatives should learn now, before the actual primary voting begins. For the Tea Party, for evangelicals, for the ordinary Joe and Jane who believe in American exceptionalism and hard work and God, for the like-minded concerned with the path of the Republic -- no Newt is good Newt.
Newt Gingrich is for Newt. Period. The end. This consummate Beltway insider and lobbyist will say anything, do anything, and pander to any and all in his lifelong pursuit of...Newt. He is a more facile and intelligent, an older and whiter and chunkier version of Barack Obama, whose single defining trait is overweening narcissism. And just as Barack begins each day with an admiring look in the mirror, Gingrich is second to none in his appreciation of the glory that is Newt.
Welcome to Newt World. This is the same world inhabited by the elites of both parties, a world where values are well-articulated but are, in the end, just talk. Does that mean he won't seek to apply traditional American values to a government gone wild? No, he may...or may not. It depends upon who cheers the loudest, not worldview and values.

I can’t believe FR would even support Newt. He is the worst!
Examples of Newt’s double talk:
* He can take the Tea Party line of opposing government energy subsidies while supporting green energy subsidies and ethanol.
* He can attacks Obamacare while promoting a government takeover of the health industry ( He was a former proponent of the individual mandate).
* He can appear “practically spooning” Nancy Pelosi in commercials about the need for government action on global warming while doing the same and opposite with the Tea Party
* Married Newt was leading the impeachment of [Bill] Clinton while diddling his Congressional aide.
Newt’s core is straight from the low end of the window and door aisle at Lowes: hollow molded composite. Nothing real about it. But in Washington, it works.
BUYER BEWARE !!
Capitulating to any of the perpetual politicians will be the end of the tea party.
My guy is Perry and he just can’t get started again. I’d rather vote for Mitt than Newt.
But, it actually looks now like Obama will have a second term where he can do irreparable damage.
So we are all going to support a politician who has been absolutely steadfast in his beliefs throughout the years are we? Come in Mr. Paul, I am sure that the electorate respects you and will vote for you!
Who is left? Freepers aren’t allowed to support Mitt and those two are in the lead.
I’m supporting Perry. He may have a comeback in him. Hope so.
But I can’t vote for Newt.
He pretty much is the only one that has stuck to his guns, isn’t he?
So what will you do if he or Mitt end up running against Obama?
"FR" is an open forum, so you are going to get pros and cons on every candidate (unless there is a concerted spamming effort - then Jim Rob has been known to take action.)
Whom do you support and why? I'm still undecided so willing to hear your arguments for your preferred candidate.
After reading the entire thread, I see that you support Rick Perry. What are the “pros” for his candidacy?
RE: So we are all going to support a politician who has been absolutely steadfast in his beliefs throughout the years are we?
Personally, I respect a politician who has been steadfast in his beliefs. BUT IT HAS TO BE RIGHT BELIEFS. Pelosi has been steadfast in her beliefs, doesn’t mean we should support her.
And as for changing one’s mind (AKA FLIP-FLOP). If the change is towards the correct view ( e.g. global warming is bunk ), it is still very difficult to determine whether it comes out of a genuine change of heart ( because he believes his previous belief was wrong ), or because he just wants your vote....
In this area, I’m not sure I can trust Newt and/or Mitt on these.
I believe Bachmann and Santorum are the most CONSISTENTLY correct and steadfast in their stance on issues.
Newt Gingrich Campaign Song:
Cannot vote for Romney-—not now- not ever.
It’s too bad Santorum and Bachman couldn’t get more traction, but they’re not viable options anymore. Rick Perry did himself in and Cain isn’t qualified. That leaves Newt. Slick Willard isn’t an option.
I'm sticking with Cain unless some proof comes up to make me change my mind.
Chris Horner on local radio in Indy right now warning people about Newt and his rabid support of GW.
Lookout people. Horner says Newt will pander to media and triangulate against a conservative Congess.
He says Newt cannot be trusted. He also said to not trust Romney on this issue.
When I ask people here, who besides Reagan has done more for conservatism than Newt over the last 30 years? - I never get an answer.
Glenn Beck described Newt’s flip flops this morning as Mitt times 3.
Clearly the Romney-bots like this poster and this author of the AS piece are in a dreaded panic. The Republican Voters do not want Romney - and the Romney automatons are desperate to slam every single Conservative candidate in the race so RomneyCare can win the nomination by default. Think about it: all the postings we see on Conservative sites trashing the status of Conservatives; all of the stories about the most Conservative candidates in the race leaking to the gleeful MSM who can’t wait to run with them. And lest we forget - the 2008 sabotage of Palin near the end of the 2008 campaign was orchestrated by Nicole Wallace and Steve Schmidt, two former Romney staffers whom McLame hired. The Romney tentacles - and by association, those of the Republican Establishment - are out to destroy Conservative candidates in the name of preserving the GOP side of Ruling Class Politics. As Limbaugh pointed out, the only person in the GOP primary race escaping all scandal and extreme scrutiny from MSM’s is Romney, the candidate least appealing to those who matter most: GOP Voters.
As has been said often: a Romney nomination is the single greatest asset to Obama’s reelection campaign. Mitt Romney is the worst possible choice for GOP nominee. He has no conviction, no principles, and is nothing but a political hack in search of the most poll-tested, focused-group phrases to utter in the name of political expediency. Romney is the quintessential “finger-in-the-wind” politician; the GOP Human Weathervane. Everyone knows he is the phony he truly is. The fact that his Romney-Bots have to go to this many extremes so often to try to “sell” Romney to voters (who clearly don’t want him) by disparaging his opponents lets us know they are fully aware once the Primary season begins Romney has everything to lose by not winning any of them. That’s why they worked so hard to try to make Romney seem like a forgone conclusion months ago. The more the Primaries draw closer, and the more Romney stays stuck at his meager 20%, the less likely he is to win anything. Mitt Romney needs to be run out of town on the RINO train as soon as humanly possible.
After seeing this, you all can vote for the smooth talking bull pooper.
I won’t be. Are coonservatives idiots anymore?
Blah blah blah blah. Yet another person pushing Mitt down the electorate’s throat!
I couldn’t give two CRAPS about this....both or either of them will be better than the fascist we have in office right now.
If the impeachment had been about infidelity, then the above would hold water. But, it wasn't about infidelity, now was it? What was Clinton impeached for? Oh, yeah! Perjury!
I WILL vote for Mitt over Newt if those are the only two choices. However I prefer Perry as well because of his experience and views.
