Gingrich takes aim at Santorum, sees impossible task in Afghanistan
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | February 27, 2012 | Jeremy Redmon

Posted on 02/27/2012 12:38:36 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

NASHVILLE – Newt Gingrich went on the offensive against Rick Santorum during a campaign swing through Tennessee Monday, calling him a “big Labor Republican” and predicting his surging opponent’s fortunes will quickly change amid a chaotic race that could remain competitive all the way to the Republican National Convention in August.

Gingrich, who has said he must do well in the Southern states to win the GOP nomination, also predicted he would win the Alabama and Mississippi primaries next month.

Turning to the escalating violence in Afghanistan, the former Georgia congressman said the United States is facing an impossible task there.

“We are not going to fix Afghanistan. It is not possible,” he told a large group of Republicans at an afternoon luncheon here. “These are people who have spent several thousand years hating foreigners. And what we have done by staying is become the new foreigners.

“This is a real problem. And there are some problems where you have to say, ‘You know, you are going to have to figure out how to live your own miserable life… because you clearly don’t want to learn from me how to be unmiserable. And that is what you are going to see happen.”

I watched that video yesterday and found it to be outstanding.

Newt is the only true leader in the race.

He sure is the TRUE LEADER we need at this time.

We need wisdom, not pretty/handsome. I want substance in our leader and NEWT has what it takes.

Now watch Rick and Mitt scramble to climb on board with this and make it their issue. Newt is always one step ahead of them, while they are out debating his last issue, Newt brings up a new idea. rofl.

There is no way they can out think him.

Taking it to Santorum and Romney with the gloves off is the way to do it. One wonders, however, if it isn’t too late?

And before the Santorum supporters cry foul with Newt’s quotes against Santorum in this article:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2012/02/01/rick_santorum_gingrich_not_a_true_conservative.html

“”The Florida results are in and despite spending millions Newt Gingrich went form a big lead to a big defeat. Why? Because voters discovered Gingrich wasn’t a true conservative. Like Romney, Gingrich supported the Wall Street bailout, job-killing cap and trade, and radical healthcare mandates. Gingrich even supports giving some illegals amnesty,” a radio ad on behalf of Rick Santorum says.”

This ad is approved by Rick Santorum himself. I say, live by the nasty ads, he should lose by the nasty ads. It’s biblical, so Rick shouldn’t complain. At least Newt’s quotes are accurate! I’ve noticed Santorum’s tendency to praise Unions or the “working man” (as if we don’t all work) for awhile now. His previous anti-Right to Work vote, and also his tax plan, fit the pattern.

So is he a big labor Republican, or are MI voters going to vote on the belief that he is, even if he’s not, or are they going to vote on a comment that he is, by Newt Gingrich campaigning in the South?

Nonsensical post.

It is about time Newt took the gloves off instead of protecting Santorum to play the odds against Romney.

I was wondering if Santorum’s union pandering legislation was forever going to be buried, clouded over by all the conservative smoke blowing by Rick launching into the minutiae of contraception.

That strategy kept every conservative applauding his principled stand, and off the scent of his legislative track record.

That trail, by the way, had what family values included when Rick was in a position to advance them?

Obfiscate, distract and delay has been at work here and Newt has said nothing.

It is time.

I think many have reached the same conclusion as Newt w/regard to Afghanistan.

Destroying the threat to our national security harbored there was justified; anything beyond that, regardless of grandiose schemes for “nation building” or moral proselytizing of the need for “allowing Mrs Muhammad to vote,” as Michael Scheuer recently quipped, is inevitably doomed to failure and the increasing wasteful loss of our valiant warriors; not to mention time, effort, equipment and national treasure.

Nice of Newt to do that the night before Michigan and Arizona. I bet Newt would rather have Romney has the candidate. Why else would he be concentrating only on Georgia a state that he should have locked up without campaigning. Oh well one state wonder bashing Santorum is sad and desperate.

” or are they going to vote on a comment that he is, by Newt Gingrich campaigning in the South? “

You surely knew this was coming. I did, and I am not a Santorum supporter. Newt generally has footnotes to prove every sound he makes. Those notes will include Rick’s inescapable union pander legislation.

It’s just been shelved so far...until which time the NON-union guy (Newt) elected to use it. That time is now, because while panderiing to unions will sell in the north, it will not sell in the south, and right now Newt is after the south.

Most of that guy’s posts are non sequiturs. As long as he gets a pro-Santorum post within the first 10 replies on every Gingrich thread, he doesn’t care if it makes sense or not. I think he’s lost his mind.

Don't you just love how Newt says what we all are thinking.....he gives voice to us all and unafraid to call it like it is.

There comes a time when even God lets man have his own way after attempts to reach out to him...so too mankind who try to help another nation...if it's so apparent that the Aphganistan people are opposed to any "reform" of their treacherous ways...then time to leave them to themsleves and give them what they want.

I;m convinced they will be happier under the Taliban....though abused and mistreated...killed and maimed...they underst and death and punishment...they do not know how to DO Freedom and don't want to learn.

Onyx,
Hello! I am disappointed that Newt is doing this today. On Wednesday would not be a problem for me, but for him to bash Santorum the day before Michigan and Arizona just helps Romney. Am I wrong on this thinking?

Have a beautiful day.

Newt calling it like it is. Either Newt is going to have to take Santorum down or vice versa for either to have a chance to outright win the nomination.

Newt has clearly realized this and is going about it now.

Otherwise, Romney will always have their split vote, with him eaking out many victories, but not by much. He may or may not get to the magic number and win the nomination.

If all conservatives were united behind Newt or Rick...I believe one or the other would win large enough to have the best chance of an outright nomination before the convention.

If the extent of his “attack” was calling him a “big labour Republican”, it’ll help in Michigan more than it hurts. I don’t agree with the characterization, but it’s hardly an attack.

The AJC is making more of it than it really is. Of course, they’re rooting for Mittens.

Is that all you got? Boring. ......

Newt finally had to make the point Santorum missed:

_______________________________

ROMNEY: No, absolutely not. Of course not.

There was no requirement in Massachusetts for the Catholic Church to provide morning-after pills to rape victims. That was entirely voluntary on their report. There was no such requirement.

Likewise, in Massachusetts health care bill, there's a provision in Massachusetts general laws that says people don't have to have coverage for contraceptives or other type of medical devices which are contrary to their religious teachings. Churches also don't have to provide that to entities which are either the church themselves or entities they control. So we have provisions that make sure that something of that nature does not occur.

That's why when I worked closely with the leaders of the Catholic Church, I met with the cardinal a number of times, and with his emissaries. We talked about the issues we were concerned about.

We battled, for instance, to help the Catholic Church stay in the adoption business. The amazing thing was that while the Catholic Church was responsible for half the adoptions in my state -- half the adoptions -- they had to get out of that business because the legislature wouldn't support me and give them an exemption from having to place children in homes where there was a mom and a dad on a preferential basis.

Absolutely extraordinary. We have to have individuals that will stand up for religious conscience, and I did and I will again as president.

(APPLAUSE)

KING: Mr. Speaker?

GINGRICH: Well, the reports we got were quite clear that the public health department was prepared to give a waiver to Catholic hospitals about a morning-after abortion pill, and that the governor's office issued explicit instructions saying that they believed it wasn't possible under Massachusetts law to give them that waiver. Now, that was the newspaper reports that came out. That's something that both Senator Santorum and I have raised before. But I want to go a step further, because this makes a point that Ron Paul has been making for a generation and that people need to take very seriously.

When you have government as the central provider of services, you inevitably move towards tyranny, because the government has the power of force.

(APPLAUSE)

You inevitably -- and I think this is true whether it's Romneycare or Obamacare or any other government centralized system -- you inevitably move towards the coercion of the state and the state saying, "If you don't do what we, the politicians, have defined, you will be punished either financially or you will be punished in some other way like going to jail."......

Oh, please.

Go back and look at Santorum’s jabs and his gracious timing, back when Newt was in debt, and taking 20 million dollar defamation hits going into Florida.

Just, please. Rick is about Rick and it ends there. Newt could have been creaming Santorum from the beginning, but he has laid back for a reason, and even been found defending Junior from the Romney assaults.

Rick has given Newt back, what? A back handk, that’s what, and from the beginning.

He is:

Take 30 minutes. Expand the video to fill the screen and listen to Newt [or read -- full transcript too]

But I love how his opponents keep telling him he must only be positive (and don't dare complain because Mitt and his PAC spent $2Million/day for 10 days attacking him) but as Rush Limbaugh made great pains (and repeated) the thing that annoys the Left is that Santorum isn't backing down. Neither does Newt. He's campaigning.

I do want Romney stopped in Michigan, and would lend every assist to Santorum to do so, expecting that such an upset would cause Romney serious implosion.

We take Socialists one head at a time, starting with Romney.

On the issues, against Santorum, Newt wins in a walk.

But, to your point, Newt needs to raise some Cain and expose a thing or two on Santorum, hardball, as Gingrich prepares to win the South, where pandering to unions traditionally has been a tough sell.

IMHO, conservative voters need to get out of the clouds on the Santorum tactic of diversion and redirecting away from his union pandering, by flogging his clerical approach to the religious right on contraception and family values in order to divert and delay the inevitable exposure of his record.

Smoke and mirrors. Newt knows it.
