Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich vs. Mitt Romney -- Has It Really Come Down to This?
Posted on 12/12/2011 11:12:28 AM PST by Clintonfatigued
So the Republican race in a year when President Obama is totally beatable -- has come to this: Newt Gingrich, serial philanderer, liar, hypocrite, secret Rockefeller Republican, back-stabber and megalomaniac versus Mitt Romney, the Supreme Panderer, the man-with-no-principles, an utter phony who will say anything and flip-flop at any time and someone who was not a Reaganite until he ran for president in 2007.
How can the GOP have sunk so low?
Two candidates so flawed, so inherently fraudulent and so phony.
It is almost as if the Republican Party wanted to help Obama get re-elected.
Clearly the GOP primary voters and caucus attendees do not want Mitt Romney. After six years of running, we have seen enough. We dont buy Mitt. Period. Even while all his flavor-of-the-month opponents have come and gone, Mitt never goes up. The others come and go and Mitt just keeps steady with about 20% of the GOP vote. Period.
How can a party end up nominating someone who only has tepid support from a disbelieving party base? How can that party support someone with 80% of the voters wanting someone else?

OK, so how about Mrs. Clinton and Senator Obama is 2008? That’s not exactlty a “trip to Paris” matchup.
The NWO is coming. The only hope in the USA is to be included in the rapture of The Lord Jesus Christ.
Sounds just like Bill Clinton.
And the Democrats and the MSM would have orgasms if Bill Clinton were able to run for President again...
Here we go again.
“Has It Really Come Down to This?”
Yes, it has....
Now, the time for CHOOSING is nearly upon us, and the time for grousing about who isn’t running is almost passed.
In today’s media environment, you could run Jesus Christ, and he would be THE MOST EVIL PERSON EVER BORN after about 6 weeks of enemy liberal media treatment.
Kind of early to call the Primaries over, but I think Newt would school Barry into a sobbing mess curled up in the fetal position on the floor. I think any GOP candidate will beat Obama, it will just be a lot more entertaining watching Newt put it to it.
By this time next year, Capt. Hopey Changey will have already begun packing crap and calling the moving van.
Maybe LeBoutillier should get off his butt and run then.
I’m sorry but I no longer can take seriously anything this serial whiner John LeBoutillier writes. It’s not a perfect world John, deal with it.
What a pantload!
Either Romney or Gingrich would be infinitely, massively, uncountably, better than Obama. Either of them will stop punishing business, stop making capitalism a crime and source of ridicule, stop ignoring US-based natural energy resources, stop intentionally imposing socialist-marxist wealth-redistributionist policies, and a host of other things that have brought business investment, personal wealth, employment, and confidence in government to a new low.
I can’t wait to vote for whoever the Republican nominee is and stop Obama.
All the rest until then is just filler.
One world government, one world economy, one world religion is the plan.
Yep, like I said in another thread..God,help us all.
It’s pretty damned disgusting that’s for sure.
Where is that basic training camp for Presidents?
No such place?
Who gets to run for POTUS?
Anyone with guts?
So there are only 7 men and 1 woman of courage in the USA?
Damn - they must be crazy!
John pretty much hits it
Ill support who ever comes out as long as it helps us beat obama but im under no illusions that our two are worth a damn
I’ll support the nominee, but one would think we could do better than either a slick political weathervane who governs by opinion poll and a pompous ass with a history of backstabbing. Neither of them are likely to make a positive impression in the general election. We can’t afford to lose this Presidential election. There is way too much at stake.
What good does it do to beat Obama with someone who will not undo what has been done?
John LeBoutillier and Fox anti-News can KMA.
Go Newt Go.....
Yes, it has come down to that. Our Beltway masters have decided that, once again, we will have a moderate/progressive GOP candidate for President and eliminated conservative contenders until they got what they wanted. It’s either death by hanging or death by firing squad. Your choice.
What amazes me is how many people I know to be conservative who don’t mind being shoved to the back of the bus again with Noot. They see a debater. I see a shape-shifter.
Something I don’t understand—Newt has a lifetime ACU rating of 90 yet is labeled a Rockefeller Republican.
Are the ACU ratings bogus?
John, weren’t you the Congressman who couldn’t hold on to your House seat??????????
John, just shut up. The Republican voters will decide their candidate. Go back to what you were doing!
Newt is better than Romney and worth a last man standing vote against Obama. Nothing more. Romney rejected the Reagan agenda and the Contract With America from the get-go. While Newt stood with Reagan in the 80's and gave us the Republican Revolution in 1994, Newt has also said the era of Reagan was over and that will not inspire conservatives. Newt may be a great rhetorician, but he's not a great communicator. Newt places expediency over principle far too often and displays far too many progressive tendencies. Newt debating Obama would be fun to watch. Problem is, Newt can not beat Obama. Newt's ethical and moral downsides will lead to his downfall.
I think Gingrich as President may end up surprising you.
He’ll have no reason to cowtow to the Republican Leadership after past events, and not only knows what needs to be done, but what is politically possible to do.
Maybe not. But the potential is there.
The problem for many is that people look outside themselves for the answers. The answer lies within us as well as the seed of our eternal destruction. We have a choice. We either accept what the Holy Spirit is saying or we resist it.
It is true that the American people have “lost it.” This is evidenced by the fact that they elected a member of the Third World as president.The fact that we have “lost it” is the reality of our times. The question has become: with the people we elevate to candidacy who can best ameliorate our current situation?
In 2008, we had the choice of McCain, Romney or Huckabee running against an energized ‘anyone but Bush’
In 2012 we have the choice of Gingrich or Romney (with a remote possibility of Bachmann/Perry/Santorum), running against a failed Obama.
I consider this a VAST improvement over the 2008 choices.
Another turd speaks. What is with these people? Newt must have banged his wife or something.
Sounds like John LeBoutillier has gotten big, fat, and out-of-control.
Please tell us whom you are campaigning for and when and where?
Iowa in December for MB, RS, perry?
I’ve never been happy with the Republican field. Still, any of them would be better than Barry, whom I consider a clear and present danger to the Republic.
I don't remember this guy from his time in Congress, and this statement makes it apparent why. The guy is a loon.
States have ballot deadlines, etc., that candidates can't miss if they want to win the nomination. The idea that someone is going to come out of the woodwork in "late-winter or early Spring" (that's March-April), enter the race, and win the nomination, is nuts. They'd be too late to meet most of the deadlines and even get on the ballot. There wouldn't be money left, there wouldn't be time to vet them, and the other people still in the race would still be fighting.
Perhaps he has some particular candidate in mind who he thinks could overcome all that, but then, why not mention the name so people could determine for themselves if it was possible? And why wouldn't a candidate capable of not announcing until March and yet winning the nomination have run at the outset? Assuming such a candidate even exists?
This guy's logic doesn't even pass the straight-face test, and this reads more like an emotional temper-tantrum than any kind of professional "analysis".
Such as WHO, John? Bachmann, Cain, Perry, Romney and now Gingrich have either flirted with or sat at the top spot. Huntsman and Paul are worse than any of these, and Santorum isn't getting any traction. Palin, DeMint, Pence et al took a pass.
You go to war with what you have, not what you want.
Huckleberry (or whatever his name is)?
I forget the rest.
Le Boutillier is a NY raised, Harvard-educated silver-spooner who ran for congress on money from his mother. For him to call Gingrich a Rockefeller Republican is a real laugher
Every time someone says Newt’s colleagues do not support him think: Sarah Palin. Newt is very much like Palin. He fought corruption in the Congress and the insiders never forgave him. They drummed him out of office. Don’t believe me? Check out the Contract with America to see how much of it concerns corruption in Congress.
Every article like this is an effort to suppress the Republican vote and limit Republican contributions in the general election. Intentional or not, Le Boutllier is now one of Barry’s best friends.
I do believe we may be AGAIN seeing the unprincipled, unethical, untrustworthy, perfidious repobates of the contaminated and fetid news media (read MSM) leading the lemmings of the Republic to ‘their’ free will choice of a Presidential candidate.
Shades of out past debacle rearing its ugly head.
Guy I wanted was Daniels, but even he was derided here as being a RINO. But here's not here either. We've got who we've got, and whining about who we wish was in the race doesn't do any good.
We agree. May be a first.
It may be the plan, but it isn't the future. Look at what is happening to the EU and the euro. What the NWO megalomaniacs ignore is the will of the people and the people don't want the NWO.
For the time being, I'd plan on there being a LOT of separate, individual nations in the world to contend with because the whole NWO thing is collapsing as we speak.
They are, and the nominee (so long as it's not Huntsman) won't be so awed by Obama as to not take the fight to him. McCain was way too fascinated and impressed with Obama to give victory his best shot. Palin saw through the Obama fraud and certainly wanted to win, but McCain didn't.
I am so sick of hear that laod of horse hocky! Well this person or that person would be better than Obama. That’s not saying anything. HELL Hannibal Lecter would be better than Obama! It’s like arguing if Hitler or Stalin would be a better ruler.
-——One world government, one world economy, one world religion is the plan.-——
Why are you planning that?
There is no republican candidate with your agenda
That is Satan’s plan. He has a one world leader also coming.
ACU covers only some votes and only covers his time in office. He has become much worse since then.
He won’t owe conservatives anything, so he do whatever Pelosi and Reid tell him to. We can look forward to Cap & Trade, him cementing Obama/Gingrichcare, gun control, etc.
