Mike Reagan, Rush Limbaugh Blast Romney
Newsmax ^ | 1/26/2012 | Jim Meyers

Posted on 01/26/2012 2:54:10 PM PST by Raebie

Ronald Reagan’s eldest son Mike Reagan has issued a statement lambasting Mitt Romney and his supporters for claims that Romney’s Republican presidential rival Newt Gingrich was a strong critic of President Reagan. Reagan says such claims are false. Even Rush Limbaugh, shocked by the Romney claims, chimed on his Thursday radio broadcast to say "This is obviously a coordinated attack to take Newt out here in Florida." Rush slammed the Romney-backed smear campaign against Newt. “That kind of stuff is why people hate Romney so much," Limbaugh said. Limbaugh added that Newt has always been a conservative from his early days in national talk radio in the 1980s. “He was perhaps the premier defender of Ronald Reagan,” Limbaugh said. Note: Do You Support Gingrich or Romney? Vote in Urgent Poll — Click Here Now On Thursday, Mike Reagan, a respected conservative commentator, responded to the Gingrich critics with this statement to Newsmax: “I am deeply disturbed that supporters of Mitt Romney are claiming that Newt Gingrich is not a true Reaganite and are even claiming that Newt was a strong critic of my father. “Recently I endorsed Newt Gingrich for president because I believe that Newt is the only Republican candidate who has both consistently backed the conservative policies that my father championed and the only Republican that will continue to implement his vision. “It surprises me that Mitt Romney and his supporters would raise this issue — when Mitt by his own admission voted for Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale who opposed my father, and later supported liberal Democrat Paul Tsongas for president. “As governor of Massachusetts, Romney’s achievement was the most socialistic healthcare plan in the nation up until that time.

Rush did not slam Romney. He tried his best to destroy Newt today along with the Establishment. He was rather enjoying it also.

This is better news than the other thread provided. Here:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2838305/posts

the transcript made Rush sound not at all supportive of Newt. Just the opposite.

I listened to Rush a little today and turned it off. Maybe I turnned it off to soon? I sent him this e-mail

Rush,

I just deleted heart radio from my IPad. The man I defended so long is gone and has been replaced with Chris Matthew of the right, you Rush. The elitist have given you the talking points and you are bowing down to them; you are now living on the Plantation.

I am a Santorum fan. Only a few percentage of the voting has been done and only God, and not you, knows the future. I know in your eyes people should just not bother to vote and just give it to Romney. We are not democrats, we don’t jump when told to jump. Remember you taught us to think, but your telling us now don’t think, just vote for Romney, without using words. Romney will NEVER get my vote. My navigator has more personality then Romney. More importantly, we don’t trust a liberal who saw the light just in time to run for president.

Even though Santorum is my first choice, Newt has something that no one on the right has: A spine. We are tired of the “my friends on the other side of the aisle” people. We did not put them there to be friends. We put them there to fight for the constitution and our beliefs. Newt is my second choice. No he is not perfect, who is? Not you, and not me. But he is willing to fight like no one else can.  If we give in to the establishment again, like we did with McCain, conservatism will be dead, and you of all people, are giving it the final death blows. We will not be used by the establishment, and people like you, again.

The silver lining is maybe a true third party will rise from this. The Conservative Party (C).

That was my impression. Anyone who does so, including Rush Limbaugh, can KMRA. Anything that avails Romney, ultimately avails Barack Obama.

I didn’t get that from him. It was Rush who pointed out that McCain’s support for Romney was like a loser supporting another loser.

I think Rush has pointed out time and again how Newt gives voice to those conservatives who have been ignored by the RINOs for years.

I don’t get why some FReepers are all upset with Rush today. I listened to his entire radio program and he’s simply saying he’s shocked by these Newt quotes and stories, yet acknowledges there is clearly a coordinated effort coming from somewhere to take Gingrich out and make Romney the nominee.

I don’t think even Rush knows what to believe anymore.

Something tells me this viscious attack on Gingrich is going to backfire big-time against Romney.

There is still 5 days to go and people are getting very tired of this constant Romney slime in their Florida mailbox, telephone, TV, and radio.

Voters are going to see this as Romney’s weakness that he has to resort to such tactics.

I am withholding fire on Rush Limbaugh because I only read the transcript of his remarks, didn’t hear the audio. And he has earned some benefit of the doubt. But in lifeboat ethic situations, I’d sooner save Newt.

Well, you may have put your finger on the problem right there. The Rush Limbaugh I've listened to since I was a little girl, DOES know what to believe. I would find it very, very hard to believe that in a Newt-vs-Mitt contest, Rush does not know what to believe.

By the way, I love the conversation Rush had with a caller during the third hour of his radio program today, which illustrated how this scorched earth campaign against Gingrich is only firmly strengthening the resolve of Newt’s supporters because we WANT to back someone who is deeply unpopular with the Republican establishment and the Washington elite, NOT someone who wants to go to Washington to get along with everyone and continue the status quo of politics as usual!

I can't listen to Rush anymore these days because of his support for Romney. I use to forward to him coming on now I do not even care to listen at all.

Sure wish I didn't feel this way as I thought Rush knew we were at a cross roads and did not need a place holder like Romney would be.

If we keep the House and get the Senate with Romney as the Prez we would not stop our Countries slide. With any true Conservative (not Romney) we WILL have a chance to get our country back.

**************************************************************

I think you’re misinterpreting my comment. When I say Rush doesn’t know what to believe, I’m referring to his take on these articles and audio clips about how Gingrich supposedly insulted Ronald Reagan repeatedly throughout the ‘80s. He plainly said this doesn’t jive with his memory of Newt Gingrich from the Reagan years. So I’m saying Rush may not know what to believe about all these smear pieces coming out about Gingrich.

Trust me, I’ve been listening to Limbaugh for almost 20 years now and you won’t find a more ardent supporter of his than me. Rush is ONE guy I can count on to NEVER EVER sell out the conservative movement!

Rush can't trash Romney because he has concluded (probably correctly) that Romney will win the nomination and Rush will have to back Romney in the fall against Obama - and he can't afford to have a lot of audio tape of him bashing Romney for Obama to use in his campaign.
As well, Rush likes the role of being kingmaker and getting invites to the WH.

Ha! Ha! Rush has been lambasting Newt and shilling for Mitt for at least a week and did so again today. Michael is outmaneuvering Rush; rounding him up, hogtieing him, and throwing him back into the Conservative corral.

Better not take on the Reagan family, Rush! Hannity just played a direct quote from Nancy Reagan; "...Ronnie passed the (Conservative) torch to Newt and the Republican Congress."

Rush should be on the front lines countering the lies. Instead, he’s sitting around being befuddled while blogs and forums like this are doing the dirty work and figuring it out.

I haven't seen anyone voice my feelings on Rush today, so I'll give it a go.

I've been listening to Rush since 1989, and although he has been the #1 voice for conservatism, there is something about elections that makes him, well, weird.

The whole "Operation Chaos" was way too clever and I feel it probably helped (in a very small way) to give us Barak Husein Obama.

Today was a big game for Rush ...defend Newt ...attack Romney ....defend Romney ....attack Newt ...etc., etc. He even referred to this as a variation of "Operation Chaos," to somehow help get a Republican nominated. Not sure I'm clever enough to follow the argument.

I'm reminded of something I learned long ago about telling a joke; if you have to explain the punch line it ain't that funny.

For me, what nails this all down is asking why we are fighting this battle? Indeed, I ask that of all my fellow FReepers. Now I'm probably going to sound a little harsh, but here's my take...

Rush has no children or grandchildren.

That's it. To me, that's the crux of the argument. Rush has a much nicer home and jet than I will ever dream of owning. Heck, I'm 64 and I will probably never even visit a home as nice as his or ride a someone's personally owned jet. I don't begrudge him that. He's earned it, and I wish him well.

But I don't think Rush has my deep-down, way down in the gut, concern for my kids and grandkids. That's why I'm in this battle for the soul of America. At 64, I'm probably going to be okay. I put a little away in the 401K and the wife and I have lived within our means for the past 25 years, avoiding spending money we did have.

But my five grandkids are being straddled with debt they cannot hope to pay, and I have literally shed tears for what we are doing to them.

So for me, this isn't a fight about "my guy" versus "your guy," or even moderate versus conservative, it's about who is going to stop this madness before it's too late.

Romney is a "finger in the wind" politician who will move which ever way the winds blow. I put as much stock in his words as I did (now with hindsight) when George Herbert Walker Bush said, "Read my lips. No new taxes."

Newt claims he's doing this because of his two grandchildren. I'm taking him at his word. I do so, because when he talks about his grandchildren, and his concern for the future we are making for them, he sounds just like me.

Rush has his cats, and his jet, and golf outings to die for, but at the end of the day he has no compelling reason to look out two or three or four decades. I do. My five grandchildren give me that opportunity every day.

Pfffft! Why should Rush worry if he's going to ruin whatever Conservative “creds” he might have by endorsing Romney in the Fall??? All he has to do is bash Obama; no need to shill for Romney if he is a true Conservative.

Older but wiser bump.

With both drudge and rush it has been slow in coming but as the primary has progressed, it has become ever more obvious.

Sad to say, for drudge it took him becoming so blatant, so over the top against Gingrich, for it to have become absolutely undeniable, and I was pushed to say enough.

Our eyes have been opened to so many, and it has disappointing - sometimes shocking, but we see now, and will no longer be herded - by anyone.

May God give us strength.

It was my take, too, that Rush is demanding clarification on clearly conflicting stories. I did not support Newt or Romney and at present, am appalled on the circular firing squad going on amongst the candidates.

What I do think is that whatever the truth, whatever the skeletons, whatever the stuff that the candidates do not want to have out, we, the voters, need to know it now, indeed, have the right to know it now, not later when it is too late to change our minds. I would rather process the bad stuff now and get a solid candidate than wait for the dems to launch the ‘October Surprise’ and take our candidate down. The candidates owe us that much—to be honest with us. While that may run counter to many politicians, it is what we need.

I get the feeling that Rush was as frustrated as I am, hearing multiple conflicting stories, some from people he respects, and wondering who is telling the truth. As for the coordinated effort—that has been going on for a while. I am referring to the constant use of the phrase ‘Romney is the most electable’ and variations of the same. I did not buy it then, don’t buy it now, but someone has given out the talking points and the followers are pouring the koolaid for those who are not demanding truth, not demanding it NOW.

I spoke with my sister today and said basically the same thing—that we need to know now, not later. And, if I find that the candidates are lying.....suffice it to say that I will not support them, financially or via my vote.

Kraut is a very smart guy; even Rush admires his depth and knowledge. I think he is an insider; however, I wonder if some Romney operative didn't try to “push” him too hard and he is rebelling. He may have more integrity than I gave him credit for.

You have to understand that Rush is not his own man.

He has grown accustomed to the big bucks, and they will dry up if he supports Newt or Palin in any way. The establishment owns Rush right down to his socks.

COme on people, Rush doesn’t have to suck up to the potential nonimnee. Do you guys actually listen to his show. Don’t you remember his McCain commercials that were being played throughout the 2008 campaign (Playing until the first week in November).

I caught part of the show today. Rush basically broke down both sides of the aisle. He absolutely said that if Gingrich was really against Reagan, there is no way Nancy would have been with him on stage last year. If any of you read the Reagan Diaries you know that Nancy was Mama bear in protecting Ronald and would absolutely not had anything to do with Newt.

Rush did play the clips where Newt, in his own words, said that the Republicans and Senior Bush could not win with that playbook in 1988. Those were Newt’s words, so nobody here can try to say those were made up. At the end of what I heard I think Rush gave a pretty balanced analysis comparing Newt’s known leadership of Reagan but also showed where the soundbites were real and that it was strange and he didn’t know that side of GIngrich.
