Posted on 01/26/2012 11:55:13 AM PST by Qbert
All the members of the Republican Party who have been complicit and collaborative in the destruction of our nation in the past few decades always talking about smaller government while never fighting against the tide of creeping socialism have now come out against Newt Gingrich.
Yesterday, at National Review, Elliot Abrams attacked Newt Gingrich for attacking Ronald Reagan from the right.
Today, it is Bob Doles turn.
Bob Dole, you will remember from George Stephanoupoloss memoir of his time in Clintons White House, totally cut the legs out from under Newt Gingrich and House Republicans during the government shut down. According to the Democrats, they were within twenty-four hours of caving to the House Republicans demands, but Bob Dole surprised them all by caving first.
Dole went on to lose to Bill Clinton and still hates Newt Gingrich for it because Gingrich was the face used to attack Dole a man who would have been the hero in the fight had Dole not caved.
And were supposed to hate Newt Gingrich because Bob Dole caved to the Democrats twenty-four hours before they were going to cave to Gingrich?
The fix is in for Romney, which just means when he is crushed by Barack Obama a lot of Republicans will have a lot of explaining to do. Newt may not be able to win. But Romney sure as hell cant beat Obama either if Newt cant win. The problem remains Gingrich supporters intrinsically know this to be so and are happy to die fighting. Romneys supporters are still deluding themselves.
Asking Bob Dole how to win a Presidential election is like asking the Cleveland Browns how to win a Super Bowl.
“The last, desperate days of the Whigs... “
Yes to that! No more Doles, McLames, Bushes. No more old flatulent RINOs who could not govern if their life depended on it.
The GOP establishment have never stood up to liberals, they mingle well at all the ‘hot’ parties in Sodom and Gomorrah on the Potomac. Their sewer is about to get flushed.
Going viral to expose this attempted execution of the Gingrich campaign in order to save Socialist Romney in Florida, may backfire right on time for Tuesday. IF we go to work.
We need to peck away on the ground, everyone of us, to defend and protect the only candidate with a voice against the Establishment. We must get outside our choir and speak for Newt.
Dole?! Who’s opinion’s next? Arlen Sphinctor?
Bob Dole. Still living. Who knew.
Bob “Where’s the Outrage?” Dole came out against Newt? Well, that settles it...
—The last, desperate days of the Whigs...—
That is pretty much how I’ve been seeing this as well. Either the R’s are going to go back to their roots or they are going to collapse as a party.
If you want a real laugh look at what Romney was doing and saying at the same time.
Openly supporting the democrat.
Declaring that he is a “moderate with progressive attitudes”
The liberals in the repub. party are truly, truly desperate....!
Bob Dole sold out the conservaties yrs. ago and his wife was just as big a failure in office as he was....!
Is this what Mitt and his allies have fallen to..? Falling back on “old”, “worn-out”, “socialist” republicans...lol
When that day comes (bless his soul) he will be dead four hours before all his body knows about it.
Many of the criticisms I’ve seen from the establishment types are that Newt fights too hard, that he takes the fight to the Democrats, that he doesn’t like to reach across the aisle and give the Democrats our credit cards.
A truly priceless quip!
Newt was never more accurate than when he described this RINO LOSER as the “Tax collector for the welfare state.”.
What’s next. Will Gerald Ford and Nelson Rockefeller rise from their graves to tag-team Newt?
Makes me think of that line Mick Jagger sings right at the end of "Start Me Up."
Well, I was thinking of supporting Newt, but since Bob Dole is against him, that does it for me. /sarc
"Going viral to expose this attempted execution of the Gingrich campaign in order to save Socialist Romney in Florida, may backfire right on time for Tuesday."
The Establishment is cooking up this whole attack to distract people from the fact that Romney is a liberal RINO.
Notice they never have anything positive to say about his record as governor- it's always negative hit jobs on other candidates? They make me sick.
Bob Dole-—good grief. They must be desperate to dredge him up. That gives me MORE reason to vote for Newt!
