To: Liberals From: John Powers Re: Life after death (1995- Liberals were terrified of Newt)
Boston Globe Archive ^ | 1995

No, this isn't some sort of twisted Freddy Krueger nightmare. That really is Newt Gingrich up there swinging the speaker's gavel -- or is it a sledgehammer? It would be nice to say that the voters didn't know what they were doing when they bounced you to the bleachers in November. But they did. The record may show that they tossed the Democrats out, but it was really the liberals they were after. After 40 years, the labels had become interchangeable.

The conservatives will get the same grace period the class of '92 got -- two years. If they can't make anything happen, they'll be dumped, too. And they don't have it as easy as you did. The president is from the wrong party, and they don't have enough votes to override his veto. The conservatives can make Bill Clinton squirm and embarrass him mightily, but they can't get much done unless he goes along. And the voters won't want to hear about gridlock. "If we don't produce," Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole has conceded, "we'll get kicked out."

You know that can't happen. The government can't create families or put them back together, and it can't square entitlements with tax cuts. The math doesn't work. It never has, and it won't work for the Newtoids, either. But neither liberals nor conservatives have the guts to force the public to face the truth. You can't get family values from Washington. You have to get them from families. And you can't spend more than you take in -- unless you want to stick your kids and their kids with the bill. In your heart, you know that. But you can't bring yourselves to say it.

Found this interesting article from 1995. It shows how much the liberals feared Newt and the RINOs like Dole in comparison, wanted to 'compromise'.

I guess I'm a Newtoid now.

I remember in a high school in 96—(Catholic one) they had a poster of Newt with the big slashed circle. Brainwashing the kids-—to think of the speaker as “mean” back then, and socialism as “good”. Such stupidity.

Now, the culture is reaping their socialist rewards in the deaths of babies and the destruction of the family. Catholics put zero in office-—as they do most liberals. It is a real shame. They don’t understand the godlessness of socialism.

The Church is doing a great job on the pro-life movement now, and recognizing the evil of Zero-—maybe, now they understand what they have allowed to happen to our culture with their stupid votes, and embracing Marxist ideology and the Pelosis and Kennedys. So destructive and stupid.
