Mitt Fears Newt
spectator.org ^ | 12/22/2011 | AARON GOLDSTEIN

Posted on 12/22/2011 3:20:04 PM PST by TBBT

In an interview with the AP while campaigning in New Hampshire today, Mitt Romney said he would not meet Newt Gingrich in a one on one debate "out of respect" for the other candidates in the GOP race. What a copout. Were Herman Cain, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman being disrespectful to Romney when they agreed to one on one debates with Gingrich? When it comes to Newt, I guess Mitt is content to hide behind his surrogates and third party attack ads. And here I thought Mitt wanted to earn the nomination. Well, if Mitt wants to earn my vote then he needs to debate Newt mano-a-mano. If he refuses to do so then I can only conclude that Mitt fears Newt. And well he should.

Sounds familiar... Like something I said earlier today...

It would be a good strategy for Newt to continue the challenge.

Newt should give a preview of how he plans to force Obama into a debate. This is a good opportunity for him.

Romney is afraid Gingrich will nail him on the attack ads and smears. However, bet Gingrich gets him in the next debate on that very issue unless the moderators intervene. Hope Newt lets the world know Romney and Paul spent 9 MILLION dollars on attack ads in Iowa and points out the lies that were told by Mitts supporters.
GOOOOOOOOOOOO NEWT!

Gingrich will skewer the dolt. He had Romney spinning in circles the debate before last-in the last debate, Romney played it cute.

And we wonder who the hell did all that to Cain? Romney was in the shit right up to his eyes. Remember he played that cute also.

When I see Mitt Romney, I think of Pee-wee Herman.

It used to be Howdy Doody, but I don’t think Howdy was ever a coward.

Coward Romney will never show up for a fair fight.

Newt is the worst choice next to Huntsman. Santorum is the best.

I don’t like Romney. I do like Santorum or Bachmann. Newt is not a conservative. He is a Pelosi Republican. Newt along with Huntsman is athe worst choice.

While in the House - Newt voted for:
1. Dept of Education - something communists supported.
2. Amnesty
3. Increased UN funding
4. Grabbing more land for Federal ownership filled with natural resources - something Marx also supported.
5. Voted for more foreign aid.
6. Voted for most favored nation trading status for China.
7. Federally funded loan guarantees for trade with China.
8. Voted for funding the NEA - including p**s Christ artwork
9. $1.2 billion in extra aid to the UN for peacekeeping.
10. $166 million in extra funding for the IRS.
11. Campaigned for and supported Nelson Rockefeller.
12. Got GATT/WTO voted in by allowing lame duck Congress to get it passed.
13. Repealed Glass-Steagall with Bill Clinton allowing banks to become securities firms with 40 to 1 leverage. This is how the banks blew up.

Newt and Clinton are both CFR members and did the NWO’s work back in the day. Their love fest in NH was pathetic.

“Conservatives” thinking Newt is one of them are as sad as his ex-wives.

Post the House
1.Newt campaigned for RINO Dede Scofazza who then endorsed the Democrat in NY state.
2.Newt made a commercial with Pelosi supporting the Global Warming fraud.
3.Newt came out in favor of amnesty

What utter foolishness you tried to pawn off at Freerepublic! You really ought to know that two of Newt’s Three wives are supporting his run for the presidency. Troll along now ...

Using Democrat talking points won’t help you get Romney elected.

So, who do you support? Or are you trolling here to just take Newt down for Romney? Sure looks that way.

“....I guess Mitt is content to hide behind his surrogates and third party attack ads.”

.
Mitt may not have anyone to debate, even if he won the republican nomination.

Some radio show host predicted yesterday that Obama may not want to debate anyone for the POTUS position.

I guess Mitt needs to "MAN UP."

YOu do remember using those words, don't you Mitt?

I guess you're only "man enough" to use surrogate organizations to smear Newt, but clearly you aren't "man enough" to debate Newt.

Hey, Mitt, you need to "MAN UP!"

I love how you are being slammed as a troll. DU liberal will be the next slander. Now that Palin let us down, JimRob is looking for the least smelly turd in the manure pile and is coming up Gingrich.

Now all of the JimRob brown nosers are coming out singing high praises of NWO inside establishmentarian Gingrich.

This is laughable. Conservatives praising Gingrich as the next coming. Where were these clowns a year ago when Bachmann and Palin and Cain were all being trumpeted. The fact is, Gingrich is NOT a conservative and your list is valid and is far from trolling.

But now that it is obvious we aren’t going to get a conservative nominee, and it is down to Romney or some other RINO, some people here are trying to promote Gingrich as a conservative, which he is not.

You talk about Kabuki theater. Here it is in spades. The logic is twisted but the genesis is crystal clear.

Palin, Bachmann and Cain are shot down in flames. All of our conservative hopes are dead and gone. JimRob begins clutching at straws and comes up with Gingrich over Romney (understandable as my own test conclusions were that Obama agrees more with me than Romney does!@!!!!!!).

So now the JimRob brown nosers are out in force to kiss his ass, and everybody who doesn’t tow the line that the anointed Gingrich is to be worshipped, has to be a troll or liberal.

Bullcrap!

We conservatives have NO REPRESENTATION, NO VOICE in this election anymore. Gingrich is going to pick up right where Baby Bush left off.

We are beyond screwed. Gingrich. Romney. Perry. Who gives a flying crap. We are screwed and every conservative on this site knows that in his heart, even the new paraded of JimRob brown nosers picking up the popular “Gingrich is god” mantra.

For the good it will do me, there isn’t an ounce of difference between Romney and Gingrich. Romney would piss more a lot more often with his social liberalism, but at the end of the day, they are both big government pigs who will sell out to big business and screw the middle class and increase regulations while reducing our freedom.

If saying that makes you or I a troll, then I’m proud to be a troll.

Conservatives have no representation anymore. Period. Obama is a one-term wonder and we are going to be stuck with Romney or Perry or Gingrich. We are screwed either way. Just screwed.

I’m trying to belive in my heart of hearts that maybe Gingrich would nominate a Clarence Thomas or a Roberts to the supreme court, and if that is the difference between him and a Romney, then maybe that is worth looking into. Myself, I doubt their nominees would be very much different at all.

Either way, we are just screwed. Obama is a lame duck one-termer and the conservative we need to scale back Obamacare and shrink government is nowhere to be found.

We are just screwed. You didn’t say one false thing about Gingrich. Not one. The JimRob brown nosers can’t fight you on the facts, so all they have left is to call you naughty names, boo hoo.

I’m getting to the point where if Romney or Gingrich are the GOP nominee, I’m just writing in Palin’s name and the hell with it.

“Conservatives” thinking Newt is one of them are as sad as his ex-wives.



We should rebuild the grassroots conservative movement. From the Reagan Revolution of 1980 through the Contract with America in 1994, it was this movement from outside Washington that carried us to the first center-right majority governing coalition in more than 60 years.

The problem has not been with conservatism or with our voters.

The problem has been with Republican leaders who forgot who elected them and what values their supporters expected to see implemented in Washington.

They could spend 10 mil against Newt in IA but once the schedule picks up, they won’t be able to carpet-bomb him like they are now. This thing is just getting started.

In sports terms what Willard is doing is playing not to lose. He is leading in New Hampshire and it is early in the 4th quarter. Willard thinks he can give up some lead here and there but win but simply marching in place.
This strategy almost always loses. Let's see how it works for Willard.

I’ll cut to the chase.

My ONLY goal this election is to repeal Obamacare. Romney will keep it and try to fix it.

Has Gingrich said he will FIGHT to repeal Obamacare in total?

That is my ONLY question.
