Heard on FNC that too many diseased hippies were about to allow normal, decent people into the area.

But it probably means that they found out there was going to be a protest that Neut’s folks didn’t want to see on the 6 o’clock news...

The Daily Caller has the details:

Dozens of protesters descended on Newt Gingrich’s New Hampshire headquarters Monday night, forcing the former House speaker to cancel a scheduled meeting with supporters.

The protesters hailed from a variety of movements, including the local branch of Occupy Wall Street. Others were out supporting gay rights and the campaign of Texas Rep. Ron Paul.

Union thugs, paid student activists, towelheads, sex deviates, etc. can be expected to try to disrupt and provide nightly State-Run-Media footage for the "News", etc. from now until Convention Day.

We now live in what has become a Circus Country, and this is all in the name of "Free Speech".

You can't disrupt The Messiah's events, lest you be called a "Racist", or charged IMMEDIATELY with a "Hate Crime".

Cannon Fodder is the best description of ALL the Republican Candidates (except The Ralien, RP, who may be beamed back to the Mothership soon).

Paul has absolutely no reason to be in the primaries as a Republican.

I can believe it would be the crackpots supporting Paul. I just saw a Santorum event on C-span at which Paul supporters were disrupting the event and screaming, “Paul doesn’t hate gays.” Why is this nut in a Republican primary? Why are “independents” allowed to vote in a Republican primary? Paul has no chance to be the nominee yet he and his supporters are crashing the primaries and skewing the results. And he’s deliberately avoiding attacking Romney as he rips Gingrich and Santorum apart. This guy is a malevolent, screwy, whack job. When he’s criticized in a debate and confronted about his lies as Gingrich did on the Saturday debate, he resorts to a fiendish, demented giggle. I think he’s certifiable.

I just got back from Elm Street (the main drag in downtown Manchester NH). Many out-of-staters here. The Occupy nitwits with their tents are across the street from the CBS news booth and the assemblage of news cameras. Groups of Paulbots also are in front of the Occupy site, blasting some hippy-dippy Ron Paul music while holding Paul for President signs.

Newt’s NH headquarters is only about a quarter of a mile north of these nitwits, in a large-window storefront. It’s no wonder to me that the riff-raff walked up to disrupt his event.

Willard’s HQ is located a half mile south of the Occupy site, but in a far less open storefront than Newt’s.

I wish this state would close these primaries and keep non-Republicans from voting. Of course, we can’t even get picture IDs to prevent non-citizens from voting.

The Paul debris joining with OWS parasites to trample the 1st Amendment about like their crackpot leader tramples other parts of the Constitution. How long is the GOP going to put up with this garbage from Paul and cult?

Thanks for the on scene report. The left (including the Paulistinians) is getting away with this because the Tea Party has given up on street activism already.

Right, and Paultards are just like RATS. In fact, many of them are rats.

Just wait, if Romney is the nominee.

ALL of his speeches will be OWS live-in’s.

That’s been the plan all along.

I was at Newt’s town hall in Hudson NH from about 4-5:30 PM today. There were about a dozen Paul maniacs just outside the doors, but all they were doing was holding signs and trash talking. I pretty much ignored them. They were gone when I came out.

No OWS trash was evident (unless you count the media).

I’m a bit disappointed that Newt was intimidated by the jerks. Husseins’ supporters have learned a lot from this. It’s the Black Panther thing enmasse.

I'd guess that most of the Paulbots out there are not gainfully employed, while most Tea partiers have jobs, families, and responsibilities. The Ron Paul music blasters looked every bit the part of the Occupy crowd.

Until we get rid of open primaries this will be a common occurrence

The primary system has failed repeatedly and should be done away with.

In the meantime, accepting that primaries may continue for a few more cycles, the following rules MUST be in place:

1) Only voters registered as Republicans for at least one year before the primary may vote. No late registrations, no independents.

2) All delegate awards MUST be proportional. A state committee could elect a winner-take-all rule, but "winner" would require 67% of voting Republicans, otherwise, delegates would be proportionately assigned. The idea of declaring a "winner" who loses 70-75% of the votes is beyond absurd.

3) The size of delegations to the national convention should be determined by: a) number of votes for the Republican candidate in the last Presidential election: range in 2008 was 98 000 (Vermont) to 4 467 748 (Texas), for every 100 000 votes I would award 1 delegate ; b) number of Senators (R) - one, (10 delegates), two (25 delegates); c) Republican majorities in State Legislature - House (10 delegates ), both (25 delegates); d) Republican governor (25 delegates); e) Number of registered Republicans > 1 year, sliding scale with 10 delegates per 100 000 registered.

I would also mandate a primary calendar with the first primary on or after March 1 and the last on June 30, in inverse order of delegation size.

Really, through, the idea of a bunch of idiots choosing the candidate has to end.

I’ve asked the same question . Why is that nutjob allowed to use the GOP platform or run on our platform and promote himself at our events?

Like you said Paul is not a republican nor a conservative, he is a lunatic though and should not be allowed to embarrass the party or have his drugged up screw ball supporters disrupt other peoples rallies.

I’m even shocked that anyone could even think of voting for the lunatic as he has seriously lost the plot

The Hudson, NH town hall:

It was supposed to be at the American Legion hall, but was moved to the High School at the last minute because they needed more space.

The town hall was packed. TONS of media, gaggles from at least 2 polling organizations, and a lot of students.

Newt spoke well, as he always seems to. He doesn’t need a teleprompter; he has more in his head than he has time to say. In that he reminds me of Kemp, Cheney, or Rumsfeld. He took a few mild swipes at the “Massachusetts Moderate”, but mostly talked about the economy and the Obama disaster. It was a friendly audience and he was well received.

I think it was his 8th event of the day. He looked exhausted. He and his wife posed for pictures with a lot of the audience at the end, mostly the students. He managed the smiles and handshakes fine, but during the pauses he seemed to wilt just a bit. I don’t know how any of them keep up with all these campaign events.

I have a Newt cup and Newt magnetic bumper sticker on the way. Next time my communist sister-in-law and her equally communist husband come see me, I will proudly wave my cup in front of them. I love both of them and they helped me tremendously when husband was ill, but they are true communists and proud of it. They get their news from Al Jazeera - they say Al Jazeera tells the truth.

I asked them what did they want from government? Both said tax rich people and give that money to non-rich people. Her husband is a genuine genius, no doubt about it and he believes this crap.

My wife and I went to Manchester after we heard Newt Gingrich speak at the high school in Hudson, New Hampshire. When we arrived at Gingrich's headquarters on Main Street in Manchester, the place was being picketed by Ron Paul supporters, Vermin Supreme and his supporters, a few #Occupy people (who looked and smelled as if they needed to occupy a shower), at least one person with a "Tax Meat" placard, and maybe a few others. There were perhaps sixty or so people picketting mostly Ron Paul supporters who were angry, yelled at the police, and were exceedingly argumentative. The crowd made it very difficult for anyone to get to the front door of the headquarters. The Secret Service realized that there was no way to guarantee the safety of the Gingriches since the Manchester police were unwilling to move the protesters to the side to allow Mr. and Mrs. Gingrich to safely access his New Hampshire headquarters.

What was interesting is as soon as the campaign staff apologized to those inside the headquarters and those people left, the Ron Paul crowed boarded a bus with their "Ron Paul" on the first line "Love Peace" on the second line. (No, I don't know if Love is a noun or a verb in that context. It did look like a 1968 sign "Love and Peace man", "Make Love not Ward" type of sign.

The Ron Paul bus was bound for Rich Santorum's next event to picket and to be generally disruptive and disrespectful to the police. I did get a laugh because the Ron Paul bus in addition to the "Ron Paul" and "Love Peace" also had a "Revolution" sign with the "R: in one color that made it difficult to see and the EVOL in a different color with the letters reversed and the "ution" in another prominent color. I thought the Love spelled backwards was too cute by half but it looked to me as if the sign said "Ron Paul Evolution". I commented to my wife that perhaps the Ron Paul Neanderthals would evolve into homo sapiens in another 100,000 years or so.
