Former GOP Congressman Says Gingrich 'Evil' and a Liar
Yahoo! News ^ | Dec. 2, 2011

Posted on 12/02/2011 5:03:19 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

COMMENTARY | Former New York congressman Guy Molinari has a few things to say about former Speaker of the House and current presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich -- none of them nice. He speaks from experience, having worked with the presidential candidate in the 80s, a few years prior to the Gingrich becoming Speaker of the House. And Molinari bluntly states that Gingrich is "evil" and a liar, according to CNN.

"Evil is a tough word, but frankly I can't think of a better word that describes what he is all about," said Molinari, who now works as an adviser to the Mitt Romney presidential campaign. "He is an evil person. That's the way he is. He'll lie; he'll do anything to get his way."

And there is definitely some truth to that. Take, for instance, Gingrich's complete twisting of the truth to brand the Obama administration as reckless with taxpayer dollars just so he can become the Republican nominee for president. Politifact published a piece on Dec. 1 that parsed a Gingrich claim that not only was President Obama the "best food stamp president in history" but that food stamps could now be used for anything, like trips to Hawaii. Even millionaires were getting food stamps, according to the former Speaker. Politifact labeled Gingrich's claims "Pants On Fire," their worst branding for lies and misleading statements.

Millionaires can get food stamps if their money is not counted as taxable income or something. Wasn’t there a lottery winner who did that recently?

It’s an opinion piece from a guy who claims to be a centrist.

Here’s an idea. Put Slick Willard and Newtie in a room together with only a collection of Ginsu knives. Lock the door. Give them two months and then open the door.

Is Guy Molinari Susan Molinari’s (also a former NY Congress chick) father? I know she was/is from a politically “connected” family. Isn’t she aso married to Bill McCallum, current Florida AG (and also a former Congresscritter)?

One thing that Newt and Obama have in common is that they are both narcissists.

Mayo Clinic Definition:

Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they're superior to others and have little regard for other people's feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

My Definition:

Pompous, Arrogant, Egotistical, Callous and Conniving Their childhoods are similar as well as their devious character.

Not sure that Mittens knows what he’s getting into by taking cheap shots at Newt. Up to now Newt has focused his fire on Obama. If Romney wants to play this game, Newt will cut him to shreds.

With friends like this Mitt and the Mittbots are not making friends with real Republicans.

Isn't Molinari out on work release though?

An advisor to Romney holds no clout in my book.

Having Newt rise to the top of the primary must be putting the Rinos through post traumatic nightmares.

They controlled the party (a permanent minority and socialist like their friends across the aisle) when Newt came along with the contract with America and a bunch of new conservatives to get it through Congress.

Newt axed the Rinos as they tried to team up with the Dem media and party liberals to resist remform through demonizing conservatives and they were put in the back of the bus or got off the bus.

Rinos looked at conservatives then as they look at conservatives today - HATE us. We are their only political opposition.

Gotta admit that this turn of events with Newt coming along to rock the Rino boat again is kinda funny. :)

LMAO! And we are supposed to take this guy’s opinion seriously! LOL. I can’t believe this is considered journalism. Why isn’t the headline “Romney Advisor Calls Newt Evil”

...Bill McCallum, current Florida AG...

Actually, FORMER AG and failed gubernatorial candidate! Pam Bondi is the current AG.
