"What the hell are you doing, Newt? I expect this from Saul Alinsky! This is what Saul Alinsky taught Barack Obama, and what you’re saying is part of the reason we’re in so much trouble right now," Rudy Giuliani said about Newt Gingrich attacking Romney over Bain on "FOX & Friends."

The criticism of Newt on Bain has officially jumped the shark. It has gotten infinitely more ridiculous than the actual Bain criticism itself.

Too much, too fast, too saturated, too constant, too disproportionate, too over-the-top. This is RIDICULOUS!

I REFUSE to let the GOP Establishment continue their “hands off Mitt Romney” talking points on every single issue that comes up.

Hands off abortion - It’s too divisive, the economy is what really matters. Besides, we should applaud Romney for converting, not punish him.

Hands off guns - After all, he only banned guns because the NRA wanted him to!

Hands off Bain - Do you hate Capitalism that much, you Socialists?!?!?!

I am SICK and damn TIRED of yet ANOTHER Newt pile-on going on with the Establishment GOP, Team Romney, and the GOP media. Enough of your bullcrap! Enough of your Romney talking points! Enough!

May you lose EVERY race if Mitt Romney is the nominee!

Gingrich to Giuliani: I'm finishing the job you could never even begin back in 2008, taking out the RINOs which at the time were McCain and Romney. Now we're down to just Romney.

What would Reagan do?

Ronald Reagan Weighs In On Bain Attacks
Forget all the particulars behind matters of high finance it’s not even clear Bain can fully disclose, Romney isn’t cooperating there, for what it’s worth. They likely don’t matter too much, any way. Think political narrative. Then read this bit about Reagan and assess what’s going on around the Bain Bashing fiasco and ask yourself, which side would Ronald Reagan want to be perceived as being on.

In late 1979, during an economic strategy meeting, Ronald Reagan was talking about his upcoming presidential campaign. At one point, somebody expressed concern that John Connally, the former governor of Texas and another presidential candidate, was gaining support among corporate chief executive officers, with all the financial support and credibility that that entailed. Reagan said this didn’t bother him at all. “Let him have the Fortune 500,” he said. “I want our campaign to stand for Main Street, not Wall Street. I want us to stand for the worker, the shopkeeper, the entrepreneur, and the small businessman.” Reagan’s instincts were right on the mark.

The criticism of Newt on Bain has officially jumped the shark. It has gotten infinitely more ridiculous than the actual Bain criticism itself.

I think the reaction to Gingrich / Perry / Huntsman is so strong because they (for personal political gain) are undermining the one area that unifies all Republicans, Tea Party and many independents agree with Republicans, which is free markets.

Without this one unifying issue, how are conservatives ever going to achieve electoral victories and majorities?

The Establishment GOP, Team Romney, and the GOP media have panicked, and tipped their hand way early, because their polling is showing Romney support stays at maybe 20% nationwide, plus a few anybody-but-obama voters.

That means 80% of GOP voters are against him, and no matter how many candidates the 80% against him is split amongst, it is hopeless.

Giuliani is just the latest of the over-the-hill crowd trying to hang on to what they’ve got.

I guess Giuliani got the RINO talking points, too. Here are Gingrich's words:

“The question here is, various newspapers have reported, and an entire documentary has been made, about three or four cases that are very specific. Now, I think if Governor Romney thinks there’s nothing there, he ought to just hold a press conference, walk the news media through it, explain how it was done, let people see it. But I find it strange that they are so sensitive on this issue that they’ve sort of pushed the panic button.

I think he nailed it on that last one. Romney has explained nothing because he knows he was lying in his ads where he touted his glorious tenure at Bain.

Please watch the video. Guliani states that he prefers Newt over Romney but he has a problem with this anti-capitalist attack. So no, he is not a “cheerleader” for Mitt.

Rudy is a New Yorker, a very rich, very well-connected capitalist New Yorker himself. His CITY which includes Wall Street, was saved in 2008 by TARP and Main Street USA - and anybody who in any way calls attention to this fact is going “have a problem” with this so-called “anti-capitalist” rhetoric.

This is NOT about capitalism ir free markets. That is a misdirection.

Romney has held up his "work" in the privatee sector to be examined. People are actually looking and BOOM! Don't look! Nothing to see here!

What is happening to Gingrich reminds me of what was done to Joe the Plumber because HE asked the wrong question!

Gingrich to Giuliani: STFU

Giuliani offering advice to Newt... that is rich.

First, who the hell is Giuliani to criticize anyone? I'm sick of this Newt bashing for bringing up perfectly legitimate questions. Where were these experts when Newt was getting bashed by Romney in Iowa?

Second, since when can't vulture capitalism be criticized by conservatives? Bernie Madoff was a capitalist wasn't he? Being a capitalist doesn't make you bullet-proof. A crook is still a crook, no matter what you call yourself.

If you recall 2008 nomination, there is no love lost between Rudy and Romney. Romney was consistently attacking Rudy, debate after debate. Romney probably cost Rudy the nomination, and election.

I think on this criticism, Rudy is doing it out or principle.

I saw the Guliani rant this AM on F&F.

I agree with him. There are plenty of legitimate ways to attack Romney (the many flip-flops) w/o attacking basic Capitalism.

As Guiliani said, the attack on Bain Capital is pandering to ignorant populists, much like Obama does, & not the ideas of a conservative.

This shows again that Gingrich is NO conservative. This week, he is playing a populist. The man cannot be trusted on ANY issue.

The current Pub candidates for Pres. are surely a pathetic bunch.

Let me off the merry go round.I will support Gingrich or Santorum or Perry if a miracle happens but how did we come to this garbage?Seriously Haley Barbour pardoned criminals that the states AG is chasing wth! Good is bad and bd is good and all’s I can say is FUBO!

Another misdirection.

Romney touts his "job" and holds it up for examination. Someone did and all of a sudden you CAN'T ask questions? I don't think so. Romney runs on his "private sector" job and claims to have created 100,000 jobs. Questions are fair game. And bet on it the Dems are going to EAT HIM.
