Newt Gingrich Wants Freddie Mac Records Released Before Florida Primary (Take That Willard!)
ABC News ^ | January 23, 2012 | George Stephanopoulos

Posted on 01/23/2012 8:12:37 AM PST by C19fan

In response to lobbying accusations from his opponents Newt Gingrich told me it would be "very helpful" if his former company, Center for Health Transformation, released the consulting contract he had with mortgage giant Freddie Mac before the Florida primary on January 31. "I think it would be very helpful and our attorneys are talking with the company. You know I left the company so, it's their decision and Nancy Desmond, the president of the company, has to make the decision. But I'd be very comfortable releasing them," he said.

That very statement says, "Nothing to hide", and should on its own shut down the questioning.

Unless he's good at bluffing...

I understand that you do not like Newt. He is a heavy man, but a pig, that seems harsh.

Did you mean to post that on this thread. I don’t understand where this particular OP would garner such a response.

Or am I missing something?

To play devil’s advocate for just a sec, it is always possible that Newt would rather they not be released, but since he “knows” that the company will refuse to release them, he can say “I’d love to see them released.”

Not saying that is going on here. Just saying I study politics with eyes wide open. And to be clear, Newt is my choice from those still running.

Newt Gingrich has surged to a significant lead over Mitt Romney in Florida, now leading the former front-runner by 8 points, according to a new poll by InsiderAdvantage of likely Republican primary voters completed Sunday night.

The InsiderAdvantage poll of of 557 registered Republican voters is one of the first polls taken in Florida in the aftermath of the former House speaker’s double-digit win in the South Carolina primary Saturday.

The poll results follow:

Gingrich: 34 percent

Romney: 26 percent

Ron Paul: 13 percent

Rick Santorum: 11 percent

Other: 2 percent

No opinion: 14 percent

The InsiderAdvantage poll was the first major survey last week to show the significant surge for Gingrich in South Carolina.

Newt needs to push back even harder, and DEMAND Romney's tax returns by a day or two before the election.

If Romney comes up with somethign else he wants, Newt should ask for a full accounting of the oaths Romney and Reid have taken in the LDS cult temples.

I have thought all along this was a Brier Rabbit moment.

ROPE-A-DOPE.

*** ^^^

Don’t forget:

Newt served on the Defense Policy Board under President George W. Bush, which provided STRATEGIC COUNSEL to the Pentagon.

He is also the longest-serving teacher of the Joint War Fighting course for Major Generals at Air University and taught officers from all five services as an honorary Distinguished Visiting Scholar and Professor at the National Defense University.

THIS MAN KNOWS STRATEGY AND HOW TO FIGHT AN ENEMY.

DRUDGE hired two Romneybots: Joe Curl and Charles Hurt to work for him and now we can clearly see their bias towards RINOs.

They're even more unbalanced and hysterical than Ann Coulter. Don't know if they are homos, but they sure act like it.

Newt just keeps getting better and better.

Most likely, he knows where the bodies are buried and all his secrets are out in the open with nothing to hide.

Compare that with obama or Hillary.

Yep, I like our chances with Newt.

Romney simply can’t get beyond the mid to mid-high 20’s, can he. Except NH, of course. And the establishment wants us to believe he’s the only one who’s electable. Yeah, sure.

I was of a similar frame of mind when he said 'let the attorneys handle it.'

They can keep it tied up until the Tuesday following the apocalypse.

I read it as Mis-Fire, as in, yet another failure to connect.

Just picture Mittens trying to connect in the general election, as he tries to hand-wave away assertions that Romneycare was the prototype for Obamacare by maintaining that the individual mandate is OK at the state level but not at the federal. That would be the Mitt Fire that gives Obama another four years.

:: Drudge is getting ridiculous. ::

Something in the back of my head keeps telling me that there is some weirdness going on among the “popular” conservatives such as Drudge, Coulter, Beck, etc.

You know what? Compared to Newt, Romney, Inc. is flush with money that could be spread around for things like consulting fees, advertising, supportive speaking engagements.

Just thinking out-loud.
