Skip to comments.Newt Is the Problem
Posted on 12/12/2011 4:03:09 PM PST by Fred
Newt Gingrichs rise to the top of the GOP polls is fueled, in part, by Republicans mistrust of Mitt Romney. Romneys signature Massachusetts health-care law, the model for Obamacare, leads many to wonder whether Romney can challenge the president on this most important domestic issue. But any conservative who opposes Romney because of Romneycare should oppose Gingrich with thrice the intensity: Newt Gingrich is one of the principal abettors of the exploding health-care entitlement state we face today. Indeed, its not clear what would be worse for the cause of entitlement reform: Newts losing to Obama or Newts beating him.

Neither, thank you.
Actually, Newt was an early supporter of Medicare Advantage plans, a free market alternative to traditional Medicare.
Democrats choose their candidate on the basis of who will do the most to increase the size and scope of government. Republicans try to pick the person who will increase government the least. In either case we end up with bigger government. No wonder we are on the brink of collapse.
The SCOTUS will rule on Obamacare before the 2012 election. Should put a whole new perspective on the race. That being said...NEWT IN 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great. NRO goes after Cain and dumps him. Now NRO goes after Newt.
News flash NRO, WE AREN’T VOTING ROMNEY.
I’m not really sold on Newt, but it is so much to watch the establishment types freak out over Newt. They are determined to steer us to Dole, er, I mean McCain, er, I mean Mitt.
I don’t trust either of them...Newt makes my skin crawl. He’s just another DC connected, dorky oldtimer. The GOP rank and file is ticking me off!
I’ll have to vote for Romney over Newt if it comes down to it.
The writer is probably just another MittRomney supporter at NR.
Hmmmmm...The Speaker that pushed through welfare reform or the President that gave us Obamacare? Who would be better to reform entitlements?
Gingrich is the worst of the GOP candidates. Very flawed character-wise and personality-wise. He is obviously unelectable.
But many are drinking the koolaid. Watch a wipe out worse than McCain in ‘08.
Yup. Newt could have stopped after saying he would eliminate the EPA but he then said he would replace it with another federal agency called the environmental solutions agency.
What is the difference between Newt advocating for forced participation in a national health care system when he was Speaker of the House...
...and Freepers trying to force Tea Party members into voting for Newt because that is supposedly the Republican thing to do?
I’m not sold on Newt either. I’m going to vote Perry because at this point I think he is conservatives only hope. I wish Sarah would have run.
And did you know that Obama is still the President?
Sheesh! New stuff to ponder every day I tell you!
Oh PLEASE!!!!! Newt is a differnt man since he reconnected to God!! He is NOT McCain....witness the “establishmnet” hates him and wants Mitt, but the “establishment gave us Dole AN D MCCAIN, because they were “next in line”!!!<P.I say MIX IT UP....let’s try Newt....WAAAAAAAYYYY better that Obama and different from Mitt!!!
Newt is the most intelligent, most articulate, knowledgeable candidate with deep understanding of American history.
Articulate, intelligent people feel threatening to the TV educated voters, making them feel inadequate.
