Newt Gingrich is GOPís Frankenstein monster come to life [Barf Alert!]
blogs.ajc.com ^ | 12/10/2011 | Jay Bookman

Posted on 12/10/2011 9:11:37 AM PST by TBBT

The panic of the GOP’s Washington establishment has become, well, entertaining. The conservative movement that they have designed and programmed so carefully is in the process of going rogue on them, and that rogue has a name: Newt Gingrich.

And in so many ways, they have brought this on themselves. He is their creation.

If you indoctrinate your members to believe that compromise equates to failure, if that becomes a core principle in your movement’s identity, how can you demand they compromise by accepting Mitt Romney as their nominee? Is that not failure on the most important decision the party can make?

If you tell them that being Republican requires obedience to every single tenet of Republican doctrine — George Will this week noted that the party is “more ideologically homogenous than ever in 156 years of competing for the presidency” — how can you sell them on a candidate who is so transparently insincere in embracing that doctrine? Isn’t that a betrayal? (Gingrich is equally insincere; he’s just much better at hiding it.)

Yes. We are all mind numb robots and we've lost our communications tether with our establishment handlers. The establishment is freaking out and trying to regain communications/control before we land in Newtistan.

On second thought, you breed a donkey to a mare and get a mule, so a rino and Frankenstein would produce a Newt. Makes sense.

More than a few of those still in Washington, in and out of Congress, are scared Chitless that Newt could be President. They know he knows they were stabbing him in the back and aiding their democrat fascist pals when a huge number of false ethics charges were filed against him back when milquetoast Republicans wanted to show everyone how nice they could be to the the minority which, at the time, meant to democrats.

They know Newt has very good maps to what's in their closets and that he has no reason to want them to stay in office if they can be replaced by a Tea Party candidate or even just a fresh Republican face.

JMHO

Is that how you were created!

Come to think about it, it makes sense.

As much sense as your mindless hatred.

Exactly.....the liberals know that if Newt gets elected, they are done. Everyone has baggage, I don’t care who it is. At this point and time, this country best put someone in office that actually cares about this country and its well being. Would Newt make mistakes along the way? Sure, anyone would. We don’t and never will live in a utopia.....but we can learn from the last three years and decide we won’t do this again.

At least some of us won’t have to pretend surprise when he’s trailing by 10% a week out from the election.

They say legislation is like making sausage. I guess if I am a Republican legislator, then I should compromise and allow a little or some dog excrement in the mix for the American people to enjoy.

Newt is better than Romney and light years ahead of Obama, but if Republicans or the TP folks think Gingrich is the savior of conservatism, they're very much mistaken.

Newt's list of progressive tendencies is quite long. Siding with Pelosi on the couch was bad enough. Stating the Era of Reagan was over is not something that conservatives should overlook.

The party elite know Gingrich; they understand that proposing to put Newt in position to be president of the United States would, in its own way, be as grossly irresponsible as putting someone like Sarah Palin in that role.


Is this fool a broken record or what?!

The GOP “elite” do not dictate to the conservatives in this country and neither does the liberal media. It’s all rather untidy in elitist politically correct land, but that’s life, Jay boy.

They say "rogue" like it's a bad thing.

“Exactly.....the liberals know that if Newt gets elected, they are done. Everyone has baggage, I don’t care who it is.”

If Gingrich gets elected...America is done. Yes, everyone has baggage, but not to the extent Gingrich has.

He’s a phony...do just a LITTLE homework on him.

And Willard Romney is betrothed to us through an arranged marriage that we do not desire.

It is mostly drivel, but the “establishment Republicans” have brought it upon themselves by catering to the leftists. If they had any principles, someone like Mitt or Newt would never have a snowball’s chance of making a viable run and would be relegated to third party stabs.

I’m guessing that details of his new global warming book will be leaked at just the right time to make people wish they had vetted him properly before it was too late.

Unfortunately once a political Justin Beiber takes the stage, all questions about him are met with screams of liberal troll etc.
