David Axelrod: Newt could be the nominee
Washington Examiner ^ | 12/8/2011 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 12/08/2011 10:24:39 AM PST by Qbert

The New York Times reports an interesting dispatch from President Obama's re-election campaign: Newt Gingrich is a genuine threat that they plan to take seriously.

“Look, for the longest time, Gingrich was not really a factor in this race, he was left for dead at the checkout counter at Tiffany’s,” said David Axelrod, a chief adviser to the president’s re-election bid. “Now he is resurgent and he could be the nominee.”

According to the Times, the campaign plans to portray Gingrich as "a symbol of the past" and the “godfather of gridlock.”

Note to the greasy, used car salesman/propaganda minister: The mid-Nineties were viewed as prosperous times, unlike these miserable Obama years...

Yeah, I think Axel-greaseball would like that.

At least Gingrich is a White guy, so they don’t have to worry about any blacks straying from the DemonRAT plantation, and the appeal to White guilt will still have some effect. Even better, any thing that makes 0bama0 look bad can be characterized as racist.

They’re good to go.

You got a white globalist who’s radioactive with indies.

And then you have Romney.

Mission accomplished, and it only took what? A couple months of a house payment? I’d reckon it cost them less than 10k for the whole operation.

the low life progressives would love to see that so they can finish Newt off with their smear campaigns. They can't fight us any other way - too stupid and indoctrinated.

From the article:
“’Look, for the longest time, Gingrich was not really a factor in this race, he was left for dead at the checkout counter at Tiffany’s,’ said David Axelrod.”

Yes, David, and the trouble is that your candidate is alive and standing at the checkout counter of every business in America trying to choke off business and simultaneously standing at the checkout counter of the Treasury charging and charging and charging his purchases of new slaves for the democrat/socialist plantation, voters who will sell the heritage of America for a bowl of stew.

Like some of the posters here, Newt scares the hell out of them and the communists Democrats.

I heard Jeb Bush’s name bandied about on talk radio this AM. Read “fAMILY OF SECRETS”, by Russ Baker. NO MORE BUSHES!

He's also a two-faced man with OCD who must be at the checkout counters at the priciest vacation spots in the country, when he's not partying down at fundraisers, and golfing with his 1% hedge fund buddies...

Heh. The PI’s they contracted to dredge up these floozies prolly cost more than what the floozies got.

There’s folks posting here that would excoriate us for saying anything negative about a Newt candidacy, but I just can’t get enthused.

I honestly don’t believe Axelrod had much of anything to do with Herman dropping out. While the smears likely had some negative impact, I think it was the feeling in many (right or wrong) that he wasn’t quite ready on foreign policy affairs that turned the tide.

No argument, Qbert. The leftist hierarchy always has had expensive tastes ...

Yeah, you’re probably right. I’d love to see Axelrod’s expense accounts.

Newt, means that Obama can start governing for re-election, and soft pedalling the marxism. 4 more years folks.

I don’t really see how Newt is better than McCain. I thought the GOP learned their lesson apparently not. Newt is the Wendell Willkie candidacy.

The fact that the floozies lived in Axelrod’s building and the fact that his grandbabies got death threats, is all just a coincidence.

Agreed, he was already on his downhill run before the main bimbo eruption hit the news, because of Libya, and "You go first, Newt" times three.

Axeholerod has probably been down in his basement working up a campaign profile ad of Newt, portraying him as one of the direct offspring of the characters from “Deliverance”, a toothless Georgia cracker sitting on his porch playing his banjo singing a confederate racial song. Chicago union politics at its finest.

Since before becoming president, no one is adept in foreign policy.

Axelrod did the same thing to Obama’s opponenet when O was running gor the Senate. It worked then, and,to our utter destruction, the people believed him again! But he also was the father of the death threats? where there’s smoke..........

I heard that HITLER has some of his sperm saved, don’t know it that is true. If true, this is surely one of Hitlers seed.

“Since before becoming president, no one is adept in foreign policy.”

Yeah, but there’s a perception factor, as well. Reagan for instance, spent more than a decade before he was elected becoming an expert on the Soviet Union (and distinguishing his policies from Nixon’s and Carter’s, etc.), and speaking about it.

I don’t think Cain helped himself by making jokes about foreign policy issues, and deferring to others in debates. I like him a lot, and I’m not trying to trash him- I’m just saying what I think many people felt deep down.

Nice to see Assolrod is still always ready with a cheap shot.

God has a sense of humor. Wgy don’t you?

Mr. Cain is so smart that he is a quick study. I have no doubts that he would have made exactly the president we need at this time.

I do doubt that we will ever again have the chance to become the United States of America, one nation, under God, indivisable with liberty and justice for all.

Answer: David (do I look like Adolf Hitler) Axelrod — the other half of Bambi's brain. The other side is owned by Valerie Jarrett.

Newt will hang these Marxists liars. He won’t be going along with the GOP (rove) “expert” advise to let them run havoc in lies.
