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

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.

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.

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.

Even if this were true (which it's not), after the sham of the Obama campaign and presidency, the liberal media world and Democratic party can cram it all up their collective @$$ and rotate.

That is one of the things I like about Newt, we know what’s in those bags. Hopefully, that precludes the media from the gotchas that ruined Cain.

I don’t think Mitt has much baggage, just one empty suit.

Psychologists call it "projection" would one accuses another of one's own neuroses. To suggest that conservatism has indoctrinated its base and isolated it from the mainstream media is the height of hypocrisy:

That trait has proved useful, producing a party base that to a large degree is immune to outside influence. But in these circumstances, what mechanisms do you use to convince the base that Gingrich would be a disaster to the party and to the country? How do you reach them? You can’t use the mainstream media, and moderate voices preaching caution from Washington simply have no impact.

The Democrat party is utterly immune to outside influence because the mainstream media will not "preach caution" about their candidate. A media that roots through Sarah Palin's garbage but cannot report a word about Obama's secret past, or his associations with violent terrorists and black liberationist preachers has fully succeeded in isolating its base from facts much less from opinion.

Believe me, I loved Reagan but he also gave the Dims what they wanted in a lot of instances to achieve his own agenda, the worst of which was SS reform and amnesty.

You are right. I figured as establishment and bruised egos from when Newt was speaker they would try to defeat him, but I hadn’t thought of their jobs or at least power if Newt and Tea party people hold the power. They are all desperate: rinos, Dems, and the Media. We must not fall for any of their warfare. Hold strong for Newt, he loves America and loves Israel and out to defend us against Islamic terrorism. Keep focused. Repealing Obamacare, balancing the budget, Washington having to abide by the laws they create for us and a hundred other good things are the cherries on top.

“That is one of the things I like about Newt, we know what’s in those bags.”

How can we possibly know EVERYTHING? Gingrich has been a political and a moral whore for years.

I betcha there’s some really disgusting stuff being held back by the NYT and the WaPo. They’re just waiting until after the primary to shovel it all out of their vaults.

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

You can say that about any party's candidate. In some way or other, the candidate is the party's or the movement's creation because they formed and chose the candidate. That's true of very different candidates. The fact that so many conservative opinion writers are critical or skeptical about Newt suggests ways in which he's not the conservative movement's creation.

Using the Reagan legacy to make other candidates look better has been tried before without success. Just ask all the Giuliani and Romney supporters. If you can find one. This is 2011 not the 1980’s and Gingrich is not the second coming of Reagan. Period. Far, far from it!

Did you take a look at this twerp? LOL.

Newt understands that dynamic very well, having helped to create it. He has made an ostentatious point of refusing to attack his fellow Republicans, saying he will not participate in a media conspiracy to divide the party. It is a great response, perfectly attuned to the mindset of the base, and you can expect to see him offer it repeatedly in tonight’s GOP debate from Iowa.

In fact, tonight’s debate on ABC is likely to be the most important of the party’s two dozen or so forums, because it comes at a critical time. Unless Gingrich self-destructs, and soon, the party establishment and intelligentsia will have to spend the next few months trying to discredit him while shoving Romney down the throat of a GOP base that gags at the thought.

And maybe it’s what’s left of my naivete, but I have to think that patriotism is also playing a role in that desperation. 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.


Well then, Let's be "patriotically, Sarah Palin "grossly irrepsonsible" and say 'GO GINGRICH GO'!!!

It has been fascinating to watch the media attack on each and every candidate that rises above the rest. Every sin, real or imaginary, that they have even come close to committing is revealed with breathless prose. The latest media tactic is to try and laugh at the Republican field. Another tactic, at least as far as Newt, is to paint him as mentally unstable. I first became aware of this tactic last night when our local and popular radio hosts broached the subject.

I love it that senators and representatives in Washington who were there when he was speaker, are having nervous breakdowns. “Oh, horrors”, they say, “it won't be fun like it has been all these years since he left! He will expect us to do something to save the country - oh, horrors!”

"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."

Please see my tagline. This line is an example of the breathtakingly stupid variety.

I'll bet that Jay Bookman will be threatening (promising) to leave the country, if the GOP candidate is elected President.
