If he was he ought to come out and SPILL THE BEANS on Mr. Romney.
Why apologize for Abrams? The man is sloppy and unethical enough to put his name on a hit piece during an election and we're supposed to think, "Oh well, he made a mistake"?
I DON'T LIKE BEING DECEIVED.
The economic disaster has apparently left a lot of formerly wealthy Rinos like Abrams very susceptible to Romney's 30 pieces of silver. So they are cashing in for their 30 pieces of Romneys silver and selling out to trash Newt!:
I dunno. Rush’s juices seem to be dedicated more to hawking his damn tea, and yesterday his political instinct was out of town. Yesterday was so devastating to Newt, via Drudge and from all of the individual reporting sources amassed against him, led by the Republican Establishment it was inescapable to see that Newt was knee capped. The Rush of fire and brimstone was NOWHERE to be seen, though he did report the headlines and made incidental comments, but yesterday was not an *incidental* day! Rush played it as if it were an ordinary day.
I didn’t listen today. I am reconsidering Rush, for the time being. No pain, no gain. Rush is not engaged in any pain for gain, imho.
I never liked that cockroach Drudge. I never trusted him.
Wow my respect for Rush grows.
But the genie's out of the bottle. You can't put all this back in the bottle now ...
So, false accusations can't be "put back in the bottle?" This isn't an event that once it's happened, the damage is irreversible. A false belief can be corrected. Call out the liar in no uncertain terms.
He's got to watch out for his credibility too - it's not as though he is skating on thick ice.
If the Romney people are willing to go to this level of deceit they do not deserve to govern. In fact, they are dangerous people.
Holy Moly! Looks like The American Spectator just hung National Review’s scalp on their lodge pole. Wonder if anyone will issue a correction or apology ;o)))~
Regarding his "hawking" of his tea, I suggest you read this
Two If By Tea® is proud to salute the men and women of our armed forces and their families. Two If By Tea® is a proud sponsor of the Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation and will donate a minimum of $100,000 to MC-LEF beginning in June 2011.

I remember Eliot Abrams, but I don’t know what his advice and opinions actually were under Reagan. I do know that Reagan had a lot of resistance from his own people, in the State Department and elsewhere, and constantly had to fight their efforts to undermine his work to bring down the Soviet Union.
This does certainly lead me to suspect that the guy is a deliberate liar, not someone who was deceived. I suspect that he is accusing Newt of doing pretty much what HE was doing—questioning and undermining Reagan. He was a professional foreign service guy, and nearly all of those guys were liberals during the Cold War.
I very much appreciate Rush and his tea destinations to our military. God knows no one argues against Rush for that.
Yesterday, however, I was in no mood for distractions. This would include the damn tea.
Rush for the first time in 27 years deeply disturbed me in his treatment of D-Day on Newt. Beginning his address of the Newt story, and me breathlessly awaiting his take on it, as always, he starts, and then goes off on the damn tea, wonders back onto the subject at hand, and then cuts for commercial break, he returns, reads some stuff, makes an incidental comment that this is not the Newt he remembers, (blink, blink) and then launches into how Romney getting attacked too. Talk about equalizing night and day. Talk about the magnitude of attacks being in the same sentence.
Needless to say I did go ballistic! LOL! :)
You won’t hear Rush say this, so I will. When we lost our son, the contribution from the MC-LEF to our granddaughter was made in Rush’s name. Rush has contributed millions over the coarse of the last 10 years of war to the education of our fallen’s children.
