Next Phase of Newt's March: The Coming Onslaught of Scandal and Barbs (Vanity)
My Noggin ^ | 12/22/12 | Elvis

Posted on 01/21/2012 10:34:06 PM PST by elvis-lives

Now that Newt has struck the first blow, Newt supporters will have to steel themselves, because in the next couple of weeks the poop is going to hit the fan. The GOP Elite are pissed and scared. They are angry that their wisdom has been challenged and that conservatives have shown that we will not be led around like sheep. For that reason the character assassination of Newt is about to begin. Every nasty rumor, slip up, photo, recording, anything they can get will come out in the next few weeks in an attempt to destroy the conservative we have decided to rally around.

The key for us will be to stick it out and not get down. Remember the feeling we have tonight, where we have the first victory and found the candidate we can get behind. In my mind I see it like the battle scene in the movie Braveheart, where the armies are facing each other and the British archers launch a volley of arrows and the Scottish rebels duck under their shields that are peppered with arrows, but then they stand, taunt and continue the charge. They are going to do everything they can to cause us to question wether Newt is "the one" by scarring him badly but we must keep our eyes on the goal. If Newt can take it (and he can), so can we.

The garbage we are about to endure will come largely from the GOP, mostly from shadowy operatives, but we must not pay attention. They want us to be disheartened and distracted but we must not. The onslaught will innoculate Newt for the General Election, so don't get down!!!

Nice to see Santorum come in a strong third tonight. Depending on what the rinos can come up with, we might just need one more lifejacket.

Bachmann!
I mean Perry!
I meant Cain!
I really meant Newt!

Romniacs fight dirty and they aren’t ready to give up.

So, yes, its going to hit the fan. Thats OK, Gingrich seems genetically immune to that kind of thing. He wades right into it, whereas Romney doesn’t handle it well when you hit back. He flinches. Gingrich has learned that, while playing nice is the right tactic with Santorum and Paul, it doesn’t work with Romney. If Romney wants to throw mud, he’s going to get it right back.

I think people did take Sarah’s message to heart in keeping the vetting process open. We will definitely see some vetting going on the next few weeks.

It is going to become very nasty. It will test our conservative faith.

I just saw a Romney TV ad in Florida (which I bet they pull)

*South Carolina picks a president on Saturday*

What are the lamestreamers doing tonight now that their pick and the DNCs pick of the person to face off against the Great Pretender was soundly defeated in South Carolina. The Rats and the media gave us John McCain in the last election and figure they can do it again this time. There is good reason why the worst dirt they could come up with on Romney was he gave money to his church (horrors)! They were hoping to save the really good stuff for the October surprise once they successfully nominated him.

I agree. How hypocritical for the “powers that be” to be making hay over Newt's sexual “indiscretions” - things he admits were wrong and of which he has repented and changed his ways - and what they gave Clinton a pass on over twelve years ago. Clinton was a horn dog even while he was still running and continued at the White House and, no doubt, is probably STILL carrying on. Darn tootin’ we need to brace ourselves for the onslaught but we should be at the ready to throw it right back in their faces for their complacency about Bill.

One of the best quotes I’ve ever read.
Wonder if it’s original with SP.

In 1998 two candidates for Az. Atty. General beat each other up to the point voters were sick of both of them, resulting in Janet Napolitano being elected. That began her trail of destruction through the Governor's office, and on to Secretary of DHS.

I am getting the feeling I am witnessing a rerun.

I'm not sure the Baggage Man can take the beating that's coming his way, and pull off a win over Zero.

Newt has been trashed by the RATs and their media allies since 1994. They can’t come up with anything new and will just recycle the old lies.

I guess I’m sort of heavy with movie line analogies this evening, but when I read your comment I kept hearing the line from the first Star Wars Movie when the fighters were attacking the Death Star and the group leader kept saying, “Stay on target......stay on target....”

Enough movie lines, I’m going to bed.

The attacks on Newt will have exactly as much success as we let them have.

It’s going to get even nastier than it’s been.

I’ve never, in my lifetime, seen the establishment Republicans...Sununu, Talent, Molinari, etc...be so nasty about a candidate from their party. Sununu almost took off Martha McCallum’s head yesterday.

Oh, wait...there was that Reagan thing, where they nor the media wanted him.

Is anyone here able to update the Wikipedia page on Newt? It says:
"In 1981, six months after the divorce from Jackie Gingrich was final, Gingrich wed Marianne Ginther. In 1993, while still married to Marianne, Gingrich began an affair with House of Representatives staffer Callista Bisek, who was 23 years his junior."
It leaves out these facts:
Newt and Marianne separated in June 1987 and maintained separate residences for six years before reconciling in late 1993 or early 1994.

I understand Newt's going to be on Meet the Press Sunday (22nd).

That will give us a foretaste of what the media is prepared to throw at him.

That is the exact same scenario that gave us Russ Feingold. You know, McCain-Feingold.

The attacks will be old stuff, new stuff and made up stuff. They will start to make fun of everything about him from his weight to his wife. We must stick with Newt—but he has made many enemies in the GOP (for not rolling over for Mittens) and the DEMs who do not want to see him debate Obama. They Must break him! They will use Florida to do their evil work. He will be made into a drunken sot—with debased ideas —a racist, homophobe, with a Napoleon complex. Look to see the diatribe start today and be un-relenting. Any news will be forgotten to Get Newt. We must stick with him in this trial.

Personally I welcome it. I think people can see right through this gutter sniping. ABC might have handed the primary and the election to Newt Gingrich. I believe he has effectively inoculated himself from one of his main weaknesses.

Does anyone really believe that when (not “if”)Newt gets the nomination the GOP establishment will fall in behind him for the general election? They will “Goldwater” him just like they did in 1964. I just can’t see that crew supporting him. Now matter, though, I would rather lose with Newt than win with Romney. I would be a meaningless victory in the long run.

Remember Reagan was called the “Teflon President” because nothing would stick to him?

I think Gingrich is developing his own non-stick coating.

Gingrich already has the eloquence and depth to promote and protect conservatism.....gained through his writings and speeches (just like Reagan).

Reagan was divorced as well.

I am not saying Gingrich is another Reagan, but he is similar in many, many ways.

Another fitting quote might be "I find your lack of faith disturbing".

Almost every GOP candidate who announced has surged against Romney. Why? People don’t trust him. He is rightfully perceived to be the candidate of the “Establishment”, which, for all you old guard John Birchers means the “oligarchy” of bankers, globalists, elitists and invisible hand, back channel manipulators of markets and debt which are an anathema to patriots. These are the peckerwoods who got us into this economic mess and people know it. Romney and his handlers are not trusted for good reason. Anyhow, Newt is smarter and more capable of acting independently of those puppet masters.

Your darling Martha is a Chris Christie gal.

However, when Sununu lit into her, she was shocked, and rightfully so.

He is one nasty man.
