Skip to comments.And We Should Hate Newt Gingrich for This?
Posted on 01/27/2012 5:31:23 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather
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.

Sound familiar?? Mitch McConnell? Debt ceiling deal? Payroll tax cut deal?
The next majority or minority leader of the senate needs to be a real conservative!
Newts win in South Carolina was like taking a stick to a Hornet’s nest.
If we can judge a man by his enemies, I kinda like Newt.
He has the right enemies, RINO’s ,leftists,those who dislike the Constitution, and Romneybots.
There has been so many postings about Newt, but wasn’t Erick Erickson jabbing Newt as well?
I like your line of thinking! I am working on going down into Florida to do a little roadside missionary work ;) May I borrow that train of thought for my sign?
May God guide our course.
More disgusting is that Rush Limbaugh is anti-Newt. He affects to be “shocked” at the information he’s hearing about Newt, and says Nancy Reagan wouldn’t have said what she did, had she known.
Santorum’s contact info is here:
Please consider contacting him and urging him to drop out now while it can still avert a Romney coronation. Santorum won’t win; he can only make Newt lose.
BTTT! He also has the right friends:
Palin: establishment trying to "crucify" Newt
byPhilip Klein Senior Editorial Writer
 Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, in a pre-recorded interview with Fox Business Network to air tonight, said the establishment was trying to "crucify" Newt Gingrich in the Republican presidential race.
In an interview to air on Stossel at 10 p.m., Palin also says she sympathized with Ron Paul and defended his record on domestic issues, though she expressed differences with his foreign policy views.
Here's some advanced excerpts of the interview:
On whether she is sympathetic toward Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-TX):
I sure am .he is not the only one vilified, though, look at Newt Gingrich, whats going on with him, via the establishments attacks. Theyre trying to crucify this man and rewrite history, and rewrite what it is that he has stood for all these years. Its not just Ron Paul. I believe it is also Newt Gingrich that the establishment, that the liberal media, certainly that the progressives and Democrats dont like.
On her concerns about Ron Pauls foreign policy stance:
I still sense his desire to be more of an isolated country and not be as aware and active on the international scene when it comes to protecting our allies like Israel and doing all we can. However, on the domestic front, he has been the only one who has been so adamantly passionate about doing something about the suffocating debt, about reigning in government growth, and slashing budgets. I respect that. I appreciate it. His austerity measures that he wants to see Congress adopt in order to reign in government and let the private sector actually grow and thrive and hire more people are absolutely spot on.
Elizabeth Dole was a Democrat before she married Bob; Bob considered becoming a Democrat in Russell, KS, after the war but went Republican because he wanted to run for local office. Maybe they are still Democrats at heart.
Frankly, considering what people seem to think is important nowadays (i.e., sports, American Idol, the Kardashians, etc.), I think Newt was right.
Bob Dole is a professional sell-out who sold his power and position in the Senate to anyone who would finance him. Being blown up during WWII and surviving is remarkable, but it doesn't make him a moral giant or an honest public servant.
He was originally for Perry but now said he definitely can vote for Newt. He does not try to jab Newt but he does analyze the state of the election very honestly. He did a great job defending Newt yesterday on the Neal Boortz show and I was hoping he would put it in writing so I went to look for it and here it is!
If you are passing out any pro Newt material (Like computer generated labels with pro Newt linka on them) frmail me.
People in KY believe in McC, but more importantly so do his fellow senators. I don’t think any of the senators are really reliable conservatives, maybe the junior senator in UT? Can someone name even one other? Coburn is kind of erratic and was staunchly McPain-oriented.
I lived in Gingrich’s district during this time.
This story line that Gingrich hated Reagan is the exact OPPOSITE of what I remember from that time.
This accusation is made up out of whole cloth. It appears that took a statement out of context to create a lie.
On the other hand, there are volumes of Romney statements where he is saying he doesn’t support Reagan.
: / Something tells me that Santorum will not be the patriot that Governor Perry was, but I will try to appeal to his love of this country...
May God grant us strength, wisdom and courage.
Why do you suppose that so many of those WWII heroes turned out to be political sell-outs? The list is endless. One theory is that they wished to avoid war for their sons and did whatever might not even work in a vain bid to prevent entry into another war. Now they “go to war” at the drop of a hat but don’t mean it. Only the military families pay. Such is the legacy too of the uninformed American voters.
thanks to the Rockefeller Republicans
Romney surges to a 9 point lead on Newt in Florida
38% to 29%
with help from Santorum who is in LAST place with 12%
Don’t you imagine Santorum is expecting Newt to self-destruct, and he wants to still be in the race in a vain bid to re-group.
I wish I was that good : / I am strictly a handwritten stand on the side of the road and wave girl, sheepish look.
Thanks Rick. You can’t win but you can help Newt lose.
May God bring strength to each of us.
Oddly, I understand that Phyllis Dole like Jackie Gingrich and Carol McCain still supported their ex-es in their political bids. They used to day John Jay was a sell-out with his Jay's Treaty too. Another thing about Dole, the Ford people cut him off in 1976 when he talked about "Democrat wars in this century." Bad move on Bob's part
too bad we conservatives won’t go to the mat for our cause like the Romney establishment people have for theirs.. no Santorum drop out and endorsement.. no Sarah Palin endorsement and campaign for Newt in Florida.. when Romney was against the wall ALL the guns and endorsements came to bear on Newt and did all our guns come out?.. not even close
we almost deserve what’s coming
“Dont you imagine Santorum is expecting Newt to self-destruct, and he wants to still be in the race in a vain bid to re-group.”
He doesn’t really have much of a campaign organization. You can’t win just by hopping on planes to catch the next debate. After Perry dropped out, Newt is the only one left who has a chance and even that isn’t guaranteed.
At first I did not know where Rush was coming from talking about all of these attacks on Newt but he was trying to tell us that Nancy Reagan already knew who Newt was and all of this disinformation dump is just that.
Bob Dole who knows exactly the truth behind the so called fine Newt paid comes out and uses it against him
Shows that Dole has no integrity what soever
And if anybody was against Reagan it was Romney and there are ample quotes and video to prove it
Dole is a pathetic case
Schilling for Viagra was his high point
“too bad we conservatives wont go to the mat for our cause like the Romney establishment people have for theirs.. no Santorum drop out and endorsement.. no Sarah Palin endorsement and campaign for Newt in Florida.. when Romney was against the wall ALL the guns and endorsements came to bear on Newt and did all our guns come out?.. not even close”
Romney is for an assault weapons ban so I guess those conservatives don’t really care about their guns.
The powers that be do all they can to prevent real conservatives from getting in the senate. And even if one or two get there anyway, they are quickly co-opted.
I’d call DeMint, Lee, Johnson from WI and Rubio as solid. The rest are party schills who will go along with the moderates/democrats.
Limbaugh defends Newt: Coordinated Avalanche Against Newt Doesn’t Match My Memory of Reagan Years
One has to wonder if the election of Romney and his RINO cohorts would be any better than Bam. Cohorts as Rove, Dole, Bill Crystal, Charley Crist, Krauthammer, McCain et. al. Romney with his off shore bank accounts, 3 mill in taxes for making 22 mill, Romneycare, for abortion before being against it, against guns before being for it,making money off freddie mae and freddie mac, running off to Paris during Viet Nam claiming to be a missionary. Romney as POTUS......pass the barf bags and gas masks.
I really hated Dole when he went out against Forbes. Romney too. Yes I remember the ad and was sick of Romney even back then because I actually saw the original in the NY Times!
The “it’s my turn, I deserved it” mentality. Not the mentality of most who were part of the greatest generation.
Agreed. The more he is attacked by the Establishment, the more I like him, just on that basis.
Dole and McConnell are BOTH vile Serbophobes!!!!
“Ordinary” Americans need to learn—if they’re against Serbian Orthodox Christians, they’re against American Christians, too.
OUT with all Serbophobic politicians, media, and “human rightser” groups!!!!
Santorum’s situation right now is the exact description of a campaign that has already self destructed.. 4th place out of 4 and no money.... you can’t get more pathetic than that
the guy barely won a pot luck supper straw poll weeks ago and he’s waiting for Gingrich to walk away and hand it to him to regroup?.. is Gingrich supposed to drop out in June and say here Rick take my delegates I self destructed.. oh by the way Romney has more than enough delegates for victory maybe he’ll give you some of his so you can regroup?
that’s just crazy talk
Chrissakes! Dole was a frickin pitbull when he was running for VP against Carter-Mondale, then he turned into Casper Milquetoast for the rest of his career.
Apparently you missed Jim Rob's post yesterday that showed Rush was not attacking Newt.
You should have read the entire transcript to undertand the full impact of what Rush was saying. I listened to Rush yesterday and in no way did I come away thinking he was going after Newt.
This is post #34 on that thread. I think you'll find the thread informative.
Be my guest.
My best wish’s for a successful trip.
Thanks for clarifying.
If you or anyone else thinks Rush is pro-Newt, there’s not much I can say, and I’m too busy to lift quotes. If there’s an audio around and I come across it, I’ll post it.
RINOs frantically struggling to perpetuate the RINO party at any cost, even if it means permitting the GREAT IMPOSTER to be reelected. Get your head out, morons!
Thanks, but I’ve been listening to Rush for a long, long time. I don’t misunderstand him.
Bush the elder made me doubt the party and Dole vs Clinton convinced me my doubt was well founded.
After the Dole's latest hatchet job, I am more convinced than ever before that Newt should be the nominee.
Two posters on this thread alone have directed you to the same thread that shows that Rush was NOT attacking Newt yesterday.
If you don't "have time" to research/understand what you're talking about, then don't make ill-informed comments.
Michael Reagan also endorsed Newt after this.
I drank a lot of the official kool-aid at that time and I regret how slow I was coming around. Fortunately, several posters here have shown me the errors in my previous thinking.
Rick's goal here: If he can cause Newt to lose, then Rick will end up being a heart-beat away from being the guy who loses to Obama in November.
