Skip to comments.Schmidt: GOP Establishment Will Have A Meltdown If Newt Wins Florida
Posted on 01/21/2012 8:01:49 PM PST by VinL
Schmidt: "Not only are we not moving toward a coalescing of support with the establishment of Newt Gingrich, we're probably moving toward a declaration of war on Newt Gingrich by the Republican establishment. And if Newt Gingrich is able to win the Florida primary, you will see a panic and a meltdown of the Republican establishment that is beyond my ability to articulate in the English language. People will go crazy,"
And you will have this five week period until the Super Tuesday states that will be just as unpredictable, tumultuous as any period in modern American politics. It will be a remarkable thing to watch, should that happen in Florida."
Maddow: "Is there a component of that which is building a firewall around Mitt Romney, protecting him? We saw the establishment try to do that and Romney helping, saying You cant talk any smack about Bain. Bain is what I want to run on, it has to be positive, dont undercut that at all. Which to me, was like a flashing red neon arrow, heres my glass jaw, please dont hit it. Is there a way to protect Mitt Romney other than, I think, this wrong approach, Itheyve taken with Bain."
Schmidt: "I think everybody in the establishment Republican circles in Washington D.C. is fixated on the numbers we talked about earlier. Newt Gingrich has a 100% name ID, has a 60% national unfavorable number and its a number so high that with the 100% name ID its impossible to come back from. Youre not electable in a general election, in a 2012 presidential election if your unfavorable numbers are that high. Particularly against a president, that while vulnerable...

This is Newt's time; it's his destiny. None so blind as they that will not see.
It’s true, I’m afraid. But, I would love to see the GOP establishment have a cow.
Eff the Contra Club Republicans.
Besides, I can’t stand your cheap whiskey.
I just keep thinking of the words, “For such a time as this.”
Nobody --including me -- was giving Newt a chance back in the summer.
He's going to be the next pres.
Like Mickey Mantle’s titanic blast that was still rising when it hit the upper deck facade in old Yankee Stadium, here’s a replay of Newt’s blast that changed the course of history. (for those, like me, who never tire of watching great moments.)-:)
I worry about him vapor locking
Nobody said that rebellion would be easy or painless. The establishment will not give up their hold on power without a fight. They’ve pooh-poohed the tea party, denied it, belittled it, loathed it, scorned it, torpedoed it, but now they’re learning to fear it. Fear is good. We have not yet begun to fight!!
Rebellion is here!!
They can have the meltdown for about one hour and then they need to get on board the Newt train. We cannot afford one single vote going elsewhere in the general. If it is Newt than everyone must be all in. I know a lot of people believe this election is going to be a breeze but there is no way it is going to be easy. It will take hard work from everyone.
The Republican Establishment in DC has a LOT to fear from a Newt Gingrich Presidency.
First and foremost being, REVENGE...
They were all set to shepherd in Romney as the anointed and then crucify him over Bain, Rich White Guy, Mormon...and a genuine Southerner had to hitch his wagon to the Tea Party and ruin it.
Plus, Newt is as close as they've seen in the political world to someone actually *being* as smart as they claim Teh One (Teleprompter Reader) was.
Now all he needs is to avoid Reagan's mistake of choosing a RINO as VP, and ride the Tea Party Tsunami II into the White House while swamping both Houses of Congress.
Then roll back the Communist tide all the way to before the 1920s.
Yeah, me too. I never thought I’d come to the place where I’m willing to say publicly that I think the GOP establishment needs a meltdown.
Schmidt ain’t no Republican.
They said the same thing about Reagan. His negatives are too high. He’ll never win.
This is insane. They are basically telling us that “you vote like we say or else”, its so apparent. We cannot allow Romney to win even if Newt loses.
Anyone who routinely goes on MSNBC to attack Sarah Palin, Cain, and others is not a conservative nor a Republican. His opinion means nothing to me.
Let the GOP establishment melt down. Their RINO rear ends need to be kicked. Well articulated conservativism wins. Perhaps seeing that happen will adjust their moderate, politically correct, and unexceptional views.
